Avatar m tn For about a year now I have this nasty condition on my head from the top down the back and on the sides. It acts just like acne. I've always had acne and still do but never this condition. As I said, this particular condition just started about a year ago. I went to the doctor and he gave me antibiotics and that solved the problem. Unfortunately, one can't take antibiotics indefinately. This condition is painful and embarresing.
Avatar m tn Hello, Acne keloidalis nuchae occurs when hairs on the back of the head and neck grow into the skin, become inflamed, and cause scar tissue. These ingrown hairs usually occur following a short haircut on the back of the head and nape of the neck. Treatment of AKN includes suppression of the inflammation with antibiotics and steroid gels or intralesional steroid injections. So apply antibiotic cream like Neosporin or bactroban.
Avatar n tn just the other day i noticed a medium sized spot on the shaft of my penis, it looks simliar to a pimple but cannot be popped. im really concerned as to what this is and thanks for the help ahead of time.
Avatar n tn I have a terrible rash on each armpit and they resemble acne. Some of the bumps are bigger some smaller. They are not colored, but very itchy. I have a cold, however. What could it be?

Avatar f tn i dont know how i started getting acne on my lower stomach.. i started getting acne there when i was 19 years old.. i want to know the cause and how to treat it..
Avatar f tn I'm 14 and I've had acne imbetween my breasts for a few months now and I can't tell weather they're going away. I'm very active, but I take care of my hygiene quite well. I've started using nutrogena bodywash and panoxil soap, it hasn't helped very much yet. I'm thinking about going to see a dermatologist. 1) How long should it take for these zits to heal? 2) What can I do to make them go away? 3) What are some signs that these pimples are healing? Thanks for the help!
Avatar n tn I have two red bumps on my face. one on my eyebrow and one on my chin. They are big and painful. I felt like they were full of fluid so i tried popping them and only orange liquid oozed out. they are painful and always leaking. i have had them since yesterday...
Avatar m tn I've applied bactroban, chlorbetazol, and Atrapro, but nothing has cleared it up over the course of six months. The swelling will occasionally go down, though never completely, and it always flares up again. It also seems to be spreading. Anyone with a similar experience or advice, please offer it! I don't use cosmetic products on my eyes, so I've no idea what could cause this strange rash. Have a look, and please, offer suggestions!
Avatar m tn Hi doctor, I have a few bumps on my forehead that look like acne but I am not sure exactly what they are. Let me explain a little bit better. There are a few small spots, slightly raised but not puss filled like acne usually is. The area around it is usually a shade of red. I am 18 years old and in college. I shower daily, use pro-active and have tried St. Ives face wash as well. Nothing seems to be working. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Every once in a while I will get what starts out as a pimple and eventually turns into a deep cratered sore. Not all pimples on me do this and they usually happen on my face. I do tend to pick at them a little. I used to do alot of Cocaine and got them regularly back then. I haven't done drugs in 10 years and haven't had one of these places come up in about a year and a half. But I've got one now. Sigh... When if finally heals, it leaves a pretty sever saucer shaped pitted scar.
Avatar n tn the left) I saw a derm a month ago. He said it was acne and put me on accutane (my 4th dose). Its done nothing so far. This is different to the acne I'm used to. He suggested 2mg/kg/day but I'm on 1 now to avoid a bad breakout. I've read about perioral dermatitis and have started using a non SLS toothpaste but no effect so far. I have no spots above the lip. Someone mentioned using keteronazole (nizoral) but that has SLS in. I tried azaleic acid, it did nothing.
Avatar m tn Hello, From 6 years white pimples started appearing on my testis, some of these pimples get inflamed till they are popped. Some few of them now remained and became white and solid. I didn't made any sexual relationship before...Is it related to sensitivity any can be removed without any surgery?
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 28 and I woke up this morning and found a bump (like a pimple) on my right testicle. I cannot figure out is it because of some food allergy or something else. This pimple really makes me uncomfortable and I am wondering why it happened. This is for the first time when I had something like this. Please help.
Avatar f tn Hi, This could be an acne, pimple or folliculitis. A topical antibiotic cream, mupirocin (Bactroban®), has been effective at reducing bacterial colonization in the nostrils. It is applied twice daily for a week and is repeated every 6 months. Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene .
Avatar n tn Finally after a year (of always having at least 1 sore on my face, during the summer as many as 8 small ones at a time) of trying to battle what I thought was adult on set acne, I saw a dermatologist who said he thought it my be impetigo/ecythyma. I was but on Bactroban cream and after about 8 weeks, most sores cleared up. However, the damn things come back. Question 1.
Avatar n tn I recently noticed a small blue dot on the head of my penis. It is flat and small in diameter, about the size of a marker tip. I am not circumcised and I am worried that it might be a cancerous cell that is an early stage of penile cancer. Please give me any info you can until I can get it looked at by a doctor or dermatologist.
Avatar m tn Recently buzzed my hair and a week later noticed a small cluster of a dozen bumps on the top of my head in a 1" circle. Kind of looks like acne and doesn't seem to itch much. See photo. Appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.
Avatar n tn i had unprotected sex 4 weeks ago and developed a red rash on the shaft of my penis under the foreskin. i went to the doctor and she said it was a bacteria infection and prescribed bactroban cream. i also seemed to be urinating a whole lot for about 6 days. the rash went away after about 12 days but then a few days after i noticed a row of small whitish yellowish bumps under the coronal sulcus of my penis.
Avatar n tn It is confined to just my buttocks area- usually only the part that I sit on (does not extend to the sides or top, and does not go past my underwear lines on my legs). I have tried using an acne product (Neutrogena Deep Cleanse) and that seems to make them smaller, for a time. But then new ones come up, and they're usually larger than the ones I just got rid of. I'm so tired of being ashamed of my backside... Please help!
1508709 tn?1289940165 My Dad would never go to a barber shop because he likes my Mom to cut it, but we took him to a local Barber for his birthday about three years ago, and ever since then he's had these bumps on his neck. He's tryed pretty much everything that people he knows recommend. They've got so much worse, and are always inflammed, red, and rather large. We thought it could be some type of acne, but these things are not popable. We've tryed unfortunately and they just get larger and really itchy.
Avatar n tn I have tried to remove body hair using Nair for Men and after a few days i noticed severe razor bumps/acne things on my buttoks and back and thighs. It is not itchy but it feel uncomfortable when touched, especially on my buttoks. Any suggestions on what i shoud use to treat these bumps? Will bactroban cream work? Will they leave marks on my skin? if so what could i use to remove the marks?.....thanks!

Avatar f tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination,but it can be due to Acne keloidalis nuchae. It occurs when hairs on the back of the head and neck grow into the skin, become inflamed, and cause scar tissue. These ingrown hairs usually occur following a short haircut on the back of the head and nape of the neck. Treatment of AKN includes suppression of the inflammation with antibiotics and steroid gels or intralesional steroid injections.
Avatar m tn Avoid any kind of cosmetics. You can also use antibiotic cream like Neosporin or Bactroban on the rash. If the rash persists then get it evaluated from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn About seven years ago, I started to notice small hard bumps on my scalp. Since then I have noticed several more appearing. They are painful, and I am also experiencing a lot of hair loss along with it. They do not ooze fluids at all, but are very bothersome. I also noticed along with the hair loss, that my hair is extremely dry and brittle and breaks easily. Recently they have become very bothersome. Could you please tell me what could this be, and what can I do for it?
Avatar n tn there are small patchy white dots in two seperate areas on the underside of my penis(under the foreskin). some times when i stretch the skin, ie materbate or have sex, a small tear apears on one of the areas and bleeds slightly. it doesnt seem to go away and becomes dry and flaky occaisionally, i have also been to see the sexual health clinic many times and have been told it is genital warts. i have had a few treatments for this but nothing seems to work dont think it is warts.
