Estrogen patch rash

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen patch rash


2-3 days before my period. I am on a birth control pill. The gyno said that I possibly had too much estrogen in the pills, and we've tried a butt-ton of different ones. Nothing seems to deplete whatever these "attacks" are I'm having every month. Let me explain. Every month, I wake up with a KILLER MIGRAINE. Like, I've been partying for days and days... such a sickening headache. I have thrown up multiple times from them being so bad in the past- can't keep my eyes open.
it is the worst rash I've ever had. I've had it for about 3months now. The rash almost looks like a patch of blisters. & It keeps spreading up my foot. I went to the doctor & they simply told me it was an allergic reaction to something and told me to use hydrocortisone cream, which is not working. The rash usually only itches at night. 4. I started menstruating when I was 16/17 years old. My cycle has never been regular. It is sometimes a month late or early.
For a few years now, I've been getting a red blotchy chest/neck rash in circumstances where I - am drinking alcohol, anxious, nervous, excited, upset - really feeling just about any emotion. It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement.
Here is the long story - 7 years ago after delivering my daughter I developed a strange rash around just the left side of my vagina/groin area that I had never noticed before that were bumps that were very itchy and also was red/peeling skin on the inside of my thigh. I did not think much about this because this was my first childbirth, I was in labor for 3 days and had developed a fever of 104, so I has assumed it was part of the healing process.
my 11 year old son had a virus on Thanksgiving 5 days later he started itching from head to toe no rash no hives nothing. we started him on benadryl and calamine lotiong, not relief so the Doctor gave him allegra and cortisone, no relief. Then the dermatologist gave him a shot of kenalog, and prescription cortisone. still no relief after two emergency room visits they gave him hydroxine and blood workups for kidney, liver, and thyroid came back normal.
The most common side effects include enlargement or tenderness of the breasts (both sexes), swelling of the ankles and legs, loss of appetite, weight changes, retention of water, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and feeling of bloatedness. The estrogen patch can cause skin rash, irritation, and redness at the patch site. Less common side effects are bleeding gums, breakthrough vaginal bleeding, vaginal spotting, changes in menstrual flow, painful menstruation.
I was recently diagnosed with Alopecia Areata and through research i noticed Lupus patients suffer from "unusual hair loss". I have a rather large patch on the back of my head and i wonder if i need to be tested for lupus.

I have had the most horrible red itchy bumps in pregnancy. It's like a rash that is so itchy it hurts. It's not PUPP which is a rash that can come in pregnancy. I have used benadryl and warm Epsom salt baths as my OB has recommended. I also can put ice on it which helps. I feel your pain and joke that I am allergic to pregnancy.
Just not trying so hard or being so serious. I am on a estrogen/progesterine patch that seems to be working. Don't give up and don't let your husband either. We try to make it all mysterical, when sometines it is very simple. Good luck.
My OB/GYN likes to use a low dose of estrogen - Esclim - it's a patch to help out with perimenopausal symptoms for hot flashes. He also likes Remifemanin. You can buy that at any health food store. I'm a bit surprised to think that a Dr. would recommend an AD for hot-flashes. Was that your only symptom? I, too, just started fish oil supplements.
Recently I went to a gynocologist for HRT. She prescribed me an estrogen patch by Berlex, which often falls off within 3 days. I have developed rash under the patch (I discontinued, didn't it and didn't go to the young doctor). Is HRT a solution for all these problems?
There are other options than jst a estrogen dot patch. Some people state weight gain, could be lack of hormones and is it possible you are not too active because of all the pain? It would sound to me like the sciatica is the root of the hip, and rear pain and leg pain.If I was you I would see a neurolgist, thats there area of expertise/ Light headness and spaced out feeling..Had your blood sugar tested? and perhaps a glucose tolerance test. Would /could indicat hypoglycemia..
I think the hives are somehow related to estrogen overload. I was told the body converts excess testosterone into estrogen. I am not a doctor but I cannot be convinced that my hives aren't hormone related. Maybe there are other people like me.
I removed the mirena in November and had on and off spoting, but never thought a problem, 3 weeks ago I thought I was having a reaction to the nicotine patch (rash, fever) to go to the er and have the doc tell me he thought I was having a heart attack due to my also present back pain near shoulders, I freak out and go into full blown panic attack , body shaking, 3 doses of atavan later I'm sent home with no answers just a recommendation for welbutron.
I've been 'surgically menopausal' for the last 15 yrs, but on estrogen-only replacement and I've been pretty well stabilized in that area, other than once or twice when they tried to tinker with my doses/or method of estrogen. They tried to switch me off of the Estrogel to a patch for about a month and I couldn't stand it. I had such a ridiculous amount of breakthrough hot flashes, mood swings, sleep problems, etc.
The standard test that the CDC recommends for lyme detection only tests for 3 markers out of the 16 and two must show positive to have a positive test. You do not have to have a bullseye rash to have this condition or any rash for that matter. My husband, my son and myself all suffer from lyme disease and never had the typical rash. You can get it anywhere in this country and many other countries as well.
and the pic also has my funky rash on it. No, it is NOT from shaving, as I have the same rash on my back and chest too. I didn't take the picture when it was all red, just how it looks normally.
For women who have had a hysterectomy, estrogen should be used alone, orally or as a transdermal patch, lotion, or gel. Women who have a uterus, if given any type of estrogen, are also given a progestin (as combination therapy) because unopposed estrogen increases risk of endometrial cancer. For most women, risks of oral hormone therapy outweigh benefits. Benefits include reduction in hot flushes, night sweats (and consequent sleep disturbance), and vaginal dryness.
OK Not a diabetic, been healthy my whole life , I hiked in mtns, I was active.
I had cronic hives about 5 years ago that lasted 7 months and ended about the time I got pregnant. I had been taking Depo Provera (three shots worth) before they appeared violently. I just got an IUD (the kind with low hormones) 6 weeks ago and I have been having itchy skin for the last three weeks, and have had to take Zyrtec and Axid again. It's got to be the IUD. I am totally freaked out that I am going to get full blown hives again. Anyone had trouble with an IUD?
I still feel like ****...125 mcg of synthroid! Also on estrogen patch, poop meds (24mcg amitza 2x daily), vitamin D, calcium, digestives(Align), and one Activa daily, and Nexium for GERD.
I cannot remember the last time I felt good or had a good nohts sleep. I do take Fentanyl Patch (50 MG) and hydracodone (10m) for severe back pain. I have heard that these drugs can cause night sweats but cannot find any hard evidence yet. In any case, without the Fentanyl I could not live at all with the back pain. Also, I take zanax,and sometimes Soma, mostly at night as sometimes they do help me to at least fall asleep. My doctor has no options I have not tried.
Hello, One of the possibilities that is coming to my mind because of the symptoms that you have recently added is intertrigo. An intertrigo is an inflammation (rash) of the body folds. It most commonly occurs due to bacterial,viral or fungal infection. An intertrigo usually appears red and raw-looking, and may also itch, ooze, and be sore. Please keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.
I take Lipator, vitamin D, and use a estrogen patch for hot flashes and night sweats, (I'm 56 years old). I have two small dogs. I have had adult acne since I was in my twenties. Have had eczema on my hands and feet, on and off, since my twenties. Have been under extreme stress lately due to being laid-off and my husband's prostate cancer. My race is a mixture of Hebrew, English, and American Indian. Let me know, maybe we can figure out this condition!
I have the same symptoms. 32 y/o male. 1993 - intense ring of pain in upper abdomen, trigered by some heavy drinking/not eating on time. ONLY solved by drinking lots of water and vomiting. NOTHING else cured it. Ocurred about every 6 weeks for 3 years, almost gone now. 1996 - Out of nowhere, pressure under right side ribcage, some mild pain and heartburn. NO stomach problems. CT scans, Barium Enema, Sono, X-Ray, HIDA, show nothing. Blood OK.
A positive thing though, with the new dose is that it's the dye free pill. I've had this itchy rash on my forearms, feels like sandpaper, ever since starting the blue 88 mcg pill. Which I'm thinking is an allergic reaction to the dye. Keeping my fingers crossed it will go away now.
for 3 days i've been freaking out because all of a sudden at the crown of my head has been an incredibly oily patch, just like all of you. it was disgusting, it looked horrible, felt horrible, and made me feel terrible. so i did a search and came across your posting and thought, what do i have to loose. it totally worked. i used the Neutrogena Triple Renewal Weekly Cleanser and the regular Listerine and it totally worked. i am beyond happy.
What sex life? What hair? What radiant skin? Oh, I know, the before tx life!! That's right, I remember now. It's whatever works for you Wilful, I can't offer a receipe for success in those areas, just celebrate a good day when it comes your way. My daughter is a stylist and I get my hair colored every 8 wks - so far no problems. I use Bath & Body Products on my skin and have avoided the dryness and rash - so far. Sex life - as I mentioned - celebrate a good day when you can!!!
In order to suppress them and get best results, you need the estrogen patch. You WILL OVULATE THROUGH THE PILL. The pill is not enough to suppress your active ovaries. I start the patch right after ovulation, keep it on for 2 weeks, go off for 3 days, then start stims. 5. Baseline exam should have E2 less than 30 and at least 8 antral follicles all about 5 mm. You don't want a leader follicle for sure...make sure they're all less than 7 mm.
