I have also been having night sweats for the last two months. For the first time I did not have that last night. What causes the night sweats? I will get the blood sugar levels done. Thanks.
Well, with reading and looking at all the pictures, it seems to resemble what I may have. Although, thank goodness mine only are the size of dimes rather than baseballs!!! Little did I know so many suffer from these horrible outbreaks. I do notice some show up during my menstral cycle others do not, they seem to have a mind of their own!! Stress, heat, constant friction are known factors which contribute to these, in which I will monitor closely.

Hello, I decided to come on here to ask a question about a possible neck rash I've had for weeks now. I went to my dermatologist and because there were several whiteheads on my neck he didnt even take a second look and told me it was acne. I'm pretty sure its not acne though.
If not he will be sending me to an ENT for scoping and a CT scan. I am in the Tampa, FL area for those who are asking.
Could they be boils? http://www.differencebetween.
Ask him to take some over the counter pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. If there are recurrent boils, then please get his blood sugar levels estimated. Also since he has had many courses of antibiotics, so he needs to get a culture sensitivity of the pus from the boisl done so that specific topical as well as oral antibiotics can be prescribed. I hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts.
I had some white tiny boils(seeds on penis) which are also gone but now i am having red spots on that place. On 14th May I did blood (For HIV HSV syphills) and urine routine test for any UTI infection. Doctor said that all reports are normal and there is nothing to worry. I am still sometime having itching on tip of penis and sudden mild pain and discomfort in right testicle. Do I have to worry for that?? are there still any chances I have STD ?? Please reply I m worried??
Recently I got involved in a relationship and suddenly developed rashes and very scratching white head pimples around my neck. I was on vibramycin(doxycycline) for two weeks, taking twice a day.my gift had some infection and her doctor suggested her and me to take it. After that these very itchy scratches started appearing. Is this some kind of sexual disease or HIV symptom. I am really worried.
ive had carbuncles for about five years in my scalp i went to the dermatolgist but i never got the medication he perscribed me it was doxycycline now the infection is spreading in my head and on my face pus filled bumps they dont drain pus like they use to but they are steady spreading getting bigger what should i do or what anitibodies do i need to take
As per his prescription I also took one tablet of Diflucan 150 mg once and now I am on ten day course of Doxycycline tab and Nigazole tab (each 500 mg twice a day). After applying the cream my itching and burning sensation is gone. I had some white tiny boils(seeds on penis) which are also gone but now i am having red spots on that place. Is it a healing indication??? There is also some pain in my right testicles. It is not continuous. whether I am having any STD or other infection?????
The first doctor prescribed me for doxycycline for 2 weeks during the course of the medication it went away. After a couple days they came back. Having to go to a naval hospital I don't get a choice in who my doctor is and my original doctor had been moved to a different base.
My dermatologist injected corisone directly into the boils/bumps and put me on doxycycline, then oracea for about six months total. I've had no recurrences since then, so I sometimes wonder if I actually had HS or if maybe it was a MRSA infection (I was substitute teaching in the NYC public schools during the whole MRSA scare at the time).
Boils are painful, pus-filled, irritated bumps on the skin. Boils are quite common. Many boils are called carbuncles. Boils can be caused by staph infection (staphylococcus bacteria). When staphylococcus infection gets inside the hair follicle, the infection can spread into root of the follicle and the surrounding soft-tissues. As the staph infection works its way to the surface of the skin, the boil develops. Boils can be found almost anywhere on the body.
I've been living for the past 15 years with an I incurable scalp disorder and have lost lot's of hair do to pus inflammation of my hair-follicles and then wonders into my glands behind my ears, the only thing that seems to help is to take antibiotics
My cut started to heal and i went to the ER for my lymph nodes and the doctor gave me doxycycline to take for ten days. I've been taking the med for 3 days now and the cut and the bump is gone and my lymph nodes have gone down also. There's still a redness that itches sometimes and it looks chafed but i have no pain.
He told me that I had an infection of my hair follicles and prescribed Doxycycline. I took it for 10 days and all but an area behind the lower part of my right ear went away. I went back to him in December - when I couldn't take the itching any more and he perscribed Doxycycline again. And it appeared to almost go away - but the very itchy bumps are back in full force again and just in that area. It is driving me crazy.
I'm sorry I forgot to add that I did take keflex for a couple of weeks in early January (after my chest xray) and doxycycline during most of April (which helped with some of the acne and small boils I was getting). Thanks so much for your help.
The dr put me on Doxycycline for 1 month...labs with elevated sed rate and bilirubin..otherwise normal. The dr finally bipsied the R groin node and it returned as what he said basically normal. I do suffer boils and large pimples to the back of my neck and upper back region. I have drenching night sweats, fatige, dizziness. Just wondering where to look to next...very agrivating and effecting my life as very active. Thank you.

A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided. Doxycycline is the preferred antibiotic for perioral dermatitis but minocycline can also be used. In unresponsive and granulomatous forms, oral isoterinoin may also be considered. Pimecrolimus cream can also be used. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Hi, 2 nights ago I was wiping after urinating & had such severe pain I jumped & trembled. I felt the area and on the inside of the labia majora I had a bright red nodule the size of a pea. I got a mirror & looked and lightly felt it. It was solid & movable under the skin but the pain was insane. It woke me up twice & I ended up putting the topical lidocaine for my chemo port just to get some rest. Well, this morning it hurt even worse, any movement & instant pain.
Surgical consultation may be obtained for removal of sinus tracts, curettage, and exteriorization of the gland. Excision and skin grafting may be helpful for severe intractable cases. Also, surgery should be considered in early cases because the area to excise is smaller and less damaged from recurrences. The CO2 laser has been used to strip away glandular tissue. Tetracycline and erythromycin may be helpful on a long-term basis, and cephalosporins often will help in acute cellulitis.
on the boils and sometimes this will help soften the skin up so that they can drain. Yes, it is marked for veterinary use and is used to soften up cow udders (lol), but is available in your local drug store. It's cheap, seems to help and is totally safe for humans. It's very similar to "Boil Ease" and much less expensive. One tin of it will last FOREVER!!

i even went to london, england, the same day dorctor and took a swab for the eye and for the result he said that the lab had mistaken it for urithal swab test and so no result and sorry and the other test he took for bactaria pathogen was negative. it is terrible and unfair to treat you like that after all that money, ect. I have symptoms and assume that this is chlamydia. what can it be fungus - two test done negative, trichomoniosis, hpv, candida?
It is something that needs to be attended to not just for gonorrhea but for other” bacterial infections for which antibiotic resistance is growing.
(Atkins induction menu for one whole month instead of the suggested two weeks) I did this recently for one whole month (SHEER TORTURE...LOL) was very strict about it when I did it, and I kept the carbs below 15 grams a day. MEAT, EGGS, CHEESE AND LETTUCE ONLY!!! "YES" TO MAYO and ranch dressing, NO TO KETCHUP (it contains sugar) also...NOTHING WHITE...I allowed myself a very small portion of green beans or broccoli once a day. I also drank enough water to fill a lake.
