Avatar n tn I've played lots of sports over the years, so I figured I just got injured and it just needed a lot of time to heal.

It appeared to be a small <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>sore</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> th<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t had a raised scab on it. It was painful to the touch. I put neosporin and a bandaid on it over nite. The next morning it had bled and when I removed the bandaid, something that appeared to be a small stick (size of the end of a pencil lead and about 1/2 inch long) came out and created a hole in hole. Over the next week, the hole became bigger and bigger.

Avatar n tn I also notice that ever since my rash in 2002, I tend to crop up with alot of blemishes on my skin. The worrying thing is th<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t they do not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>y, but instead linger indefinitely and make my face seem alittle older. I am not so vain as to care about the aesthetic side, but they do feel abit sensitive to any scratching.
Avatar n tn Follow up to Oct 15 posting. The week before October 23 was more painful than before. I think it was because I'd filed down quite a bit of skin before the nightly applications of aCV. So, additionally, although I was prepared for the wart to resurface, I wasn't sure it wasn't a sign that I shouldn't take a break and then come back to in in a few more weeks.
Avatar m tn If it weren't for the color I would not notice them as they do not itch, burn, or cause any pain. This is in addition to my huge rash on my scrotum th<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>'t</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>y no matter what the dermatologist prescribes. He ended up last time telling me that it was an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>likean> "red cheeks" and that if I applied nasal spray it would go away for a few hours b/c he said my problem was that the blood vessels were too close to the surface, but I would have the rash forever/wont go away.
Avatar m tn Fast forward two years, with the problem coming and going over th<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t time. Recently, I began having scabbing th<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t is very painful and will not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>go</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>w<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>y. It was more crusty feeling, and my nasal passages felt very dry. I tried picking them out, they'd come right back. I tried lubricating the areas, using coconut oil, neosporin, aquaphor, non-petroleum based jelly, I even slept with a humidifier on, nothing worked beyond temporary relief.
Avatar f tn I have not been stressed really or changed any part of my routine. What could be causing this?
