Arm rash treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Arm rash treatment


Avatar n tn I was prescribed a mid-level topical steroid along with doxycycline in case it was bacterial folliculitis. After a week of treatment the rash has improved slightly, but is still there. I am now out of the steroid cream. If it was bacterial folliculitis how long would it take to clear with or without an antibiotic? What about Keratosis pilaris? I have had this for almost 2 months now and just want it gone.
Avatar n tn For a few months I experience upper arm pain close to my shoulders when I lift my arms up. At the same time I have a constant sinus infection. Can there be any connection? What doctor should I see for my arms/shoulders? Second question. I was taking Selexa for two weeks and I got a bad skin rash. I stopped taking Selexa three weeks ago but rash doesn't go away. What can be the reason?
Avatar n tn For a couple of months now, i have had to deal with an itchy rash on my left arm. It seems that when I scratch my arms, these bumps appear. Sometimes they appear to have a white center. I find it most irritable at night.I also notice that if I go to bed with minimal scratching, the bumps don't appear to be as raised the morning after. I am concerned for several reasons.
Avatar n tn It cleared at the point of origin but now its every where else on her left arm and more on her belly and has started appearing on her right arm and legs. But now its not so much like a rash but bumps and some are red and some are not and some big and some smaller. They dont bother her, no fever, no pus, no white heads, no blisters.
Avatar f tn Anyway, by later that night, my face and chest were no longer pink, but my left arm had actually gotten darker and it looked like a rash was developing. By morning, the rash was definitely there and ITCHY!!! It's now Wednesday and the rash is still there, just as bad and just as itchy.
Avatar n tn Try a combination of two and apply until the rash you see disappear. Continue application for 2 weeks after the rash disappears. Wash your hands well and dry them properly both before and after the application. Hope these tips help. If symptoms persist consult a skin specialist. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn I broke my arm and i can;t move it and i;ve developed a rash under that arm. just wondering if there is somethng i can do to help that?
Avatar m tn Thanks for the link to the study charts. That's interesting that they're trying a shorter arm for the the only arm that includes 48 weeks of treatment is the control arm. That makes me feel a little better since I'm doing a 24 week rollover trial after relapsing w/48 weeks of SOC. I don't know anything about the data from the studies (other than anecdotally what I've read here)...but I believe you're onto something with the 8-week rash theory.
Avatar n tn I had unprotected sex about 6 months ago, I never received a chancre at all but i have been getting a rash over my arm for the past few weeks. It comes and goes but does not itch. Is this a sign of syphilis? Also if not what does the Syphilis rash look like?

Avatar m tn 1 Viral Relapse Rates For patients in the 12-week telaprevir-based treatment arm, the 8-week telaprevir-based treatment arm and the control arm, 8.6%, 9.5% and 28%, respectively, experienced viral relapse (defined as the proportion of patients who achieved undetectable HCV RNA at the completion of all treatment but relapsed during post-treatment follow up).
Avatar n tn We were able to cool her down and when we woke up the next morning there was no longer a fever but the upper arm was still hot. Her rash seemed to subside but on Friday I decided my at-home treatment was working. I called my insurance company nurse who said she should be seen at the doctor’s office immediately. I took her to the doctor and he was able to see the hive-like area of her arm that was still hot to the touch and a smooth, red, lacy-like, not itchy rash on her body still.
Avatar n tn I am concerned because they became apparent a few days after she ran a fever of 104 and rash on the trunk of her body. She was seen in the ER for this and was diagnosed with a viral rash. The bumps on her arm appeared about two days after this. Any suggestions on what this could be or if I should be concerned.

Discontinuation of all treatment due to rash was 1.4%, 0.5% and 0.0% in the 12-week telaprevir-based arm, the 8-week telaprevir-based arm and the control arm, respectively, while discontinuation due to anemia was 0.8%, 3.3% and 0.6% in the 12-week telaprevir-based arm, the 8-week telaprevir-based arm and the control arm, respectively.
Avatar m tn We thought the rash on her arm was poison ivy and treated it with cortisone cream. The rash on her was not itchy nor red just small raised prickly bumps that looked like heat rash but it was not all that hot out. Well over the next week her rash started to spread over her whole arm into her arm pit, the crease of her arm diaper area.

For solar urticaria, the treatment consists of antihistamines, desensitization, immunosupression and plasmapheresis. To confirm the diagnosis get it evaluated from a dermatologist as treatment is diagnosis specific. Hope that this information helps and hope that you get better soon. Wishing you good health.
Avatar n tn I have several raised red pimple like spots just below my left arm pit. These areas do not itch but are sore to touch and are sore period. I feel their presence when simply walking around. What would casae these?? Is it an aftermath from taking the medication for the possibility of lyme disease after I had an engorged tick that left a distinctive red circle around the center of where the tick was engorged? As it happens, the red spots are on the same side that the tick was found.
Avatar m tn I use this ointment on my arm where i used to get a small rash which once applied disappears but comes back again in a few days or months as the Doctor asked me to apply it regularly even if the rash goes to let it go completely but i jus apply until i see the rash gone. The itchyness on my buttock was even before the intercourse i feel. It was the first time i encountered with an intercourse. In the past ive had two GF with who i never hav any intercourse but kissing was there.
Avatar f tn Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching. No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months(upto six months). If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
Avatar f tn I agree with patsy10 - but just to say I had something sting/bite me last week - it was very itchy - then it did swell and was hot to touch - on my arm too - it looked like a EM rash - I even took some pics. - but I know it was a 'mosquito' type gnat - so there are other 'bugs' that cause a 'bullseye rash' . I would see the doc.
Avatar f tn It's a good question for a doctor ... but here's my guess (since I'm not medically trained) ... different infections the "Lyme" ticks bring have different manifestations. Lyme (sometimes) produces a spreading, circular rash that clears in the center, leaving a 'bullseye' appearance, and then fades after a while (this is just what I've read ... I didn't get a rash, but I had Lyme).
