Common Questions and Answers about Facial skin conditions


Avatar n tn What are the symptoms and signs of lupus? In discoid lupus, only the skin is typically involved. The skin rash in discoid lupus often is found on the face and scalp. It usually is red and may have raised borders. Discoid lupus rashes are usually painless and do not itch, but scarring can cause permanent hair loss. Over time, 5%-10% of patients with discoid lupus may develop SLE. Patients with SLE can develop different combinations of symptoms and organ involvement.
Avatar n tn Are you male or female? Eczematous skin conditions may vary in terms of presentation and they may likely be the diagnosis especially if the conditions appears to be non infectious and other possible conditions do not seem to fit the case. In your case, rosacea, acne in its nodular or severe form as well as fungal infection may be considered.
Avatar n tn I developed what I think is a rash on my face, under my nose in the creases of my laugh lines. The skin is red and sometimes is bumpy and flakey. I have had it there for about 3-4 months and just recently it has spread to around the left side of my mouth and on each side of my chin. Also I think it is on my forehead above my left eyebrow. It isn't red on all of those places, only on my laugh lines. The other places are just red bumps that appear oily like acne, but they are itchy.
Avatar n tn Hi Common warts are local growths in the skin caused by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection. Sometimes thread-like wart (filiform warts) may develop on the face. They are generally diagnosed clinically, on the basis of location and appearance. Sometimes a biopsy may be recommended by the doctor to differentiate it from other similar conditions like corn or callus.
Avatar m tn If you have blisters at tip of fingers and dry skin then you need to rule out certain conditions such as diabetes, psoriasis, hypothyroidism, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis and malnutrition. Generalized itching can be due to allergy. Common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, synthetic fiber, food, cosmetics (powders, soaps, shampoos—see if anything was recently changed) or drugs. Food allergies like to gluten, lactose, sea food, and alcohol etc too should be looked into.
Avatar n tn It did not fit into any categories of skin conditions like acne, rosacea, etc. They tried many oral and topical medications but nothing worked. Here are some links to pictures, http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/9291/dsc00854vm5.jpg http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/2770/dsc00859hd4.jpg It's not itchy, it looks like my pores are red and irritated, there are also raised red dots. Redness increases if I get too hot or if my face is touched (like when i wash my face or put lotion on).
Avatar n tn The second dermatologist I saw diagnosed facial eczema. His treatment plan consisted of a topical steroid and to use only water to cleanse my skin. Upon using the topical steroid my skin turned a bright red, began to sting and burn, and swelled up. When I called to see what should be done about this he stated this was quite normal and to keep applying the topical steroid as directed until it cleared up. After a week of use I had to seek a third dermatologist.
Avatar n tn i only use frag free, oil free facial creams... i dont understand how my skin kept on getting irritated, start itching and developer rash over and over again... it might be triggered by stress or food i ate but i dont understand why i never had it before (i mean when i was in my twenties) to make this time's break out worse.. i also scratched my neck and my scalp where it became itchy. and now red patches of rashes start to show up there to due to scratching..
Avatar n tn My sister has had a strange problem on her facial skin for over two years. It is so ugly as to be deforming, and so painful that it keeps her awake at night. She has seen several doctors, who have said, variously, that she was imagining it (although it's extremely visible), that they did not know what it was, or that it was a fungus. It has changed shape and form several times.
Avatar m tn Alcohol, certain drugs, allergy to food additives, heat intolerance, hot beverages and food, anxiety, orthostatic hypotension, certain endocrine disorders like those involving the adrenals, diabetes, hyperthyroidism etc all cause facial flushing. Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into.
1830047 tn?1321671393 Postural tendancies. Kidney behaviour. Skin conditions. Somewhere in there are the clues to pin down just what's going on. I've been keeping a daily log that i change periodically to keep track of the most useful symptoms. I hope I've helped more than confused.
Avatar f tn Hydrating the skin is vital to maintaining healthy skin and treating facial skin peeling. • Stay out of the sun. If being outside in the sun is necessary, wear a hat and use sunscreen to prevent your facial skin from sustaining further damage.
Avatar n tn After taking Bactrim 7 month ago for a urinary infection, I developed a red facial mask rash that cannot be diagnosed or cured. I have been tested for Rosacea, sun poisoning,lupus, carcinoid tumor, pheochromocytoma, mastocytosis, with erysipelas and allergy ruled out. I have had blood tests, urine tests, 24 hour urine tests, and 2 biopsies (that show nothing (eg "consistant with Rosacea").
Avatar f tn I have a feeling the skin conditions may be pointing to something else going on that's not skin related, but it would be better to go ahead to a doctor (you may consider starting by going back to the dermatologist or going to your PCP), and digging for more answers with them.
560706 tn?1216018488 I've been using the Nuskin Galvanic Spa facial device, and have a question about the contraindications. It lists "having epilepsy or a pacemaker" as a contraindication. Other galvanic spa distributors list MS as a contrindication as well. I've asked many Nuskin distributors and customer service reps about this, and all they say is "they're required to put this" in the brochure. No one will give ma a straight answer on this, so I'm posting it to this site.
Avatar m tn And is it just redness and blusing or will you get bumps too? The reason I ask is that you may have rosacea or a few other skin conditions that may have nothing to do with your anxiety and are manageable. Speaking of anxiety have you ever been tested for ADD or ADHD? Might explain the mental fog and the lack of focus.
Avatar f tn I have no skin conditions that I know of lol I've never even really had a facial outbreak before I was pregnant, but now it's like everyday.
Avatar n tn If your doctor OK's the topical steroids -- once you knock the problem down, you might ask your doctor about swithichg to Elidel (pimecrolimus)cream for maintenance. Elidel is prescribed for eczema but often used off label for many skin conditions. Elidel has a black box warning but many of the derms in the U.S. use it. Something similar to Elidel is Protopic but a bit greasier. I also had some issues behind my ears which was diagnosed as seborrhoeic dermatitis.
Avatar m tn I asked my doctor and she said everything is okay that these are common skin conditions. Could it be from the sex I had with the CSW or something else. I'm married and scared, stressed all the above.
125112 tn?1217277462 However, wanted to keep an eye on my mouth, which may indicate developing “skin conditions.” After nearly 7 months of developing dry skin (which was previously mixed), my hair and face have been getting oilier.
Avatar n tn My 6-month old nephew has eczema and I'm almost positive it's not that. I've never had any skin conditions either other than a pimple now and then. Help!
12100272 tn?1423544519 I'm just confused because my numbness and paresthesia is bilateral, and for almost all of these neurological conditions the symptoms typically present unilaterally. Thanks for any help you can offer!
Avatar f tn Dear Doctor - Within the last month my facial skin and throat area have become extremely dry almost to the point of being pinkish. I am 46 and use great facial care products. My moisturizer is Creme de La Mer works great better than anything else I have tried. My face is mostly dry feeling by noon each day and I reapply moisturizer and my face just soaks it up. For the most part, my skin has always been somewhat dry.
Avatar n tn I am trying to figure out of my symptoms/conditions sound likes a skin problem or if it is truly just dry skin. I really appreciate any help and advice. Thank You. Late in November - I was diagnosed with Pityriasis Rosea where I had patches on my back, neck, chest, upper arms and upper legs.
Avatar f tn In this condition there is irregular ovulation, acne, hirsutism, infertility and insulin resistance. Few other conditions causing facial hair growth are certain tumors, thyroid dysfunction, and the use of some drugs. It is best to see a primary care physician. After a clinical examination he may refer you to a gynecologist or endocrinologist. A work up for above mentioned conditions may be helpful .Keep me updated. Best wishes and take care!
Avatar n tn I really don't know what to suggest except for the biopsy. I do not know of any conditions which involve both the face and the muscles. Your story doesn't even remind me of any particular diagnosis, unless the facial swelling and the muscle pain are unrelated. I don't know of any other diagnostic techniques to recommend. If you ever try to squeeze out the contents of the facial lump or lumps, please discontinue this. I am skeptical that the lump or lumps is actually infected.
