Avatar f tn After 1 week of use i noticed my face was muchmore red and scaly dry worse than before and developed red itchy rash on neck and chest went back to derm took me off metro cream said i have folliculitis and prescribed me clindamycin. Aftter my research online i noticed antifungal creams are for folliculitis not acne medication was i given the wrong medication?
493068 tn?1224765315 I probably developed rosacea during treatment but it may have been masked because of the psoriasis and other skin irritations it might have been layered with. At the end of treatment the psoriasis receded and I definitely had rosacea on face and perhaps the neck although I had mutliple diagnosis re the neck. The rosacea on the face was very sensitive to the sun and just about anything else.
Avatar n tn I will be here till December 2008. I have seb derm, rosacea and psoriasis on my legs-now in remission for about 4 years. Since December 2007, I have observed reddish inflammation on my penis glans, with a few grainy eruptions. I applied some betamethasone and it went away. Now from this April, the redness resurfaced, it goes away with steroids and comes back immediately once its stopped. So I have started applying OTC hydrocotizone 1% and from last Sunday I stopped it since it looked better.
Avatar m tn It's most probably rosacea which at one point was thought to be brought on by Demodex mites. That theory is not now not widely held as they have that many in the general population also have Deomodex mites but do not have rosacea. In any event, many of us -- including myself -- have developed rosacea from the treatment drugs, probably the interferon.
Avatar m tn The areas start out very much like a hive (red, blotchy, extremely itchy skin), but, unlike hives, end up leaving a red papule with the occasional white center that stick around for days to weeks. To provide some context, this all started after seeking treatment for mild acne (whiteheads on my forehead and extremely oily skin) about 3 years ago. The dermatologist I saw then prescribed Ziana gel, which worked relatively well (never completely cleared the whitehead problem, though it helped).
Avatar n tn A pic would be ideal to give a diagnosis.As for Acne take a course of VitA for about 15 days,with calamine application.Pregnancy would be a contra for vitA,and longer course not recommended.Do consult your doc.You can aso take Bcarotene instead either as capsules or as nutritional supplement.
Avatar n tn After seeing a dermatologist he prescribed me Doxycycline for 1 month and an ointment made of Clindamycin 2%, HC 1% in 80% h20 and 20% isopropanol. This ointment took away the red spots before I even started the anti biotics but once I ran out, the spots came back again...
Avatar n tn Topical antibiotics such as erythromycin, clindamycin or metronidazole tend to be less effective. It is best to see your doctor for monitoring and proper management. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be rosacea. Rosacea is a cutaneous disorder primarily of convexities of the central part of the face , such as forehead; cheeks ;nose; and chin. Pimples are sometimes included as part of the definition. Treatment options vary from antibiotic creams,antihistaminics,sun screens to laser treatment.A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn I wouldn't even treat for "possible infection" with either. I'd wait for test results to come back to see if you even have either of them. clindamycin isn't going to help for either if you should be infected with either of them. you are wasting your time and money by taking it.

Avatar m tn You have likely read this but for others who may read this later: Causes: Experts are not sure what causes rosacea. The following related factors are thought to contribute: Abnormalities in facial blood vessels: Skin specialists (dermatologists) suggest that abnormalities in the blood vessels of the face cause the flushing, persistent redness, and visible blood vessels. What causes the inflammation of the blood vessels is still a mystery.
Avatar f tn You can use tacrolimus ointment for this after consulting a dermatologist. Using this rosacea often resolves the itch, redness, and tenderness of steroid-induced rosacea in 7 to 10 days with twice daily application. Complete clearing of steroid-induced rosacea usually takes 1 to 2 months. Sometimes clearing takes a bit longer. Avoiding rosacea triggers, such as caffeine, spicy foods, and alcohol, also may help clear the skin.
Avatar n tn ), weather changes, sun exposure, exercise, alcohol consumption, emotional upsets, and spicy food may trigger blushing and aggravate rosacea. The symptoms of rosacea generally tend to come and go. The skin may be clear for weeks, months, or years and then erupt again. Rosacea generally lasts for years. The medications that you are receiving are alright for the condition and you would definitely see some benefit with these.
Avatar m tn Hello. From what you describe, I'd recommend that you contact your family doctor as soon as possible. He/she can help you find a dermatologist to investigate your concerns. Your description does indeed sound like rosacea, and I was diagnosed with it when 27. But you also describe what might be some other conditions. Acne and seboric dermatitis can also occur with it. Plus you might have an infection; I once had a staph infection on my nose. Infections on the face are serious.
Avatar n tn I'm allergic to penicillin and sulfa. Dentist prescribed Clindamycin 150 mg for 10 days for infection in my tooth. Got hives, rash, swollen lips and extreme itching and blotches from head to toe. Was on vacation so stopped medication after 3 days of taking it. It is now 5 days taking benadryl and the hives and itching have not stopped. What is in the clindamycin that I may be allergic to?
Avatar n tn t find thick eye mucus anywhere listed as a symptom for Ocular Rosacea. I have recently started using Latisse and it seems to be helping with the swelling of the upper eyelid, but not with the itching and mucus. Could this be Ocular Rosacea? Is Latisse used for treatment of Ocular Rosacea?
Avatar m tn Hello, What you have is called steroid induced rosacea. Steroid induced rosacea or dermatitis is an adverse effect of using steroids. Some patients develop steroid-induced rosacea within weeks of applying a topical steroid; others may not experience it for years. Using tacrolimus often resolves the itch, redness, and tenderness of steroid-induced rosacea but it should be taken after a dermatologist’s guidance.
Avatar m tn During treatement I have suffered a lot for high redness of the face, recently the Derm doc told me this is Rosacea, I am taking Rozex gel for more then 1 year now, the redness improved but still exist and I have flare-ups from time to time. Recently I noticed that Sylimarin (milk thistle) can help with Rosacea. I took Milk Thistle for about 2 years before treatement and stopped it while I was on treatment. My question - would it be ok to take Milk Thistle now ? Can it cause any problem ?
