Common Questions and Answers about Facial skin conditions


Avatar f tn Sounds like you have a few skin concerns- have you been tested for any thryoid issues or given a reason for the hair growth? 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.
Avatar m tn t understand how you are connecting these different types of medical issues or conditions to each other.....Black mold can cause skin rash but it's not the same type of rash as Shingles, Shingles, also called herpes zoster is the skin rash caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which is the same virus that causes chickenpox.
Avatar m tn Steroid application on the face can have devasting side effects, like skin atrophy, especially on the facial skin.A rare prescription for a specific skin condition may contain flucort but then it is not to be applied for acne or other conditions.(unless specifically prescribed). Best wishes.
Avatar n tn i also get dandruff sometimes and use Neutrogena T/Gel to help control it. however, the flaky, red skin on my face seems to come and go. i have been using a facial scrub that my wife suggested and although it does seem to help if i miss a day it comes right back. it is most concentrated on either side of my nose (not just ON the sides of my nose but on the cheeks near my nose as well) and in between my eyes and in that immediate area of my forehead.
Avatar n tn I also put callogen and elastin and vitamin C and vitamin K cream, and vitamin E into my facial lotion (although it may help if I use my facial lotion every day. But I use it enough. I thought these nutrients would help applied to the skin; do they not soak into the skin? Because I'm still seeing the problem. What will make them come back up (not be sunken/indented). I don't have dark circles (because of the vitamin K and good rest, etc., just the sunken part.

Avatar f tn Some days when I look at my face in the mirror I feel like a 50 year old. The texture of my facial skin looks horrible, my skin is very dry and my facial pores are pretty big. I also have puffiness and black circles under my eyes. My weight is normal, I eat healthy, exercise a lot and take a multivitamin and Complex B. I don't drink, don't smoke, don't tan, don't wear makeup, don't do drugs and don't go out in the sun.
Avatar n tn my facial skin seems to slightly wink uncontrollably around my left eye, what does it indicate? is there something top worry about?
Avatar n tn Cuts on the skin may facilitate bacterial infection. Acne is a likely differential here. Other skin conditions we need to rule out are fungal infections and dermatitis. These conditions however may present with a patch of redness ,itchiness and scaling.
Avatar m tn Hi, Rosacea is a common skin disease that causes facial flushing that stings or burns but does not itch. Rosacea also causes the appearance of small blood vessels, or telangiectasias, on the face; adult acne; itchy, burning eyes; and in the late stages, a red, bulbous nose. The red, burning face can occur unpredictably or in response to certain triggers. The most common triggers of facial flushing in order are: Sun Exposure,Emotional Stress, Hot Weather, Alcohol, Spicy Foods, Exercise,Wind etc.
Avatar n tn i have acne and scar all over my face and i wonder, can our skin facial be immune to our skin? cause it's been in long term since i used it at the first time.
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 I have been battling perioral derm as well. my dermatologist told me to use cetaphil. not sure of the ingred. though.
Avatar f tn I’ve been prescribed 40g of prednisone a day for 7 days due to 2 months of what feels like hell from my facial and neck skin condition. After seeing horror stories of skin conditions coming back even more extreme after stopping this kind of drug to quickly, I’m very nervous that ive been told to just stop taking them instead of lowering the dose gradually. Please can you help with advice on how you would recommend this course to be taken.
Avatar f tn I have very clear facial skin but for as long as I can remember I have had this raised piece of skin next to my lip. It isn't red or anything it just is regular skin that is raised. It isn't anywhere on face just a little bump of plain old facial skin.
Avatar f tn All these medical conditions need to be ruled out by examination. Till then stop using the facial cream, instead apply some good hypoallergenic moisturizer, wash your face with a mild soap like Dove and take some antihistaminic like Benadryl. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep us posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Eosinophilia may be attributed to variety of conditions such as parasitic and fungal diseases, allergies, adrenal conditions, skin disorders, toxins, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disorders and tumors. Additional diagnostic tests may need to be done to determine the underlying cause. Take care and do keep us posted.
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 m tn While exact cause of acne is not identified, this is often associated with hormone changes,medication side effect, family history of acne, stress. products used on hair and skin and even from underlying medical conditions. While irritants may also be a factor, further evaluation may need to be done. Continue your facial regimen and avoid too much sun exposure, touching your face and even popping your acne.
Avatar n tn Older females can get atrophic vaginitis, which I understand to be age-related thinning of tissues and damage. If the color change is in the skin (mucosa), that would make sense, and I don't think it can happen only to older women. If the whitening is ON the surface, such as discharge, it may be something else altogether. Smegma, sebum, cervical mucous, and infections can all cause creamy white stuff.
Avatar n tn Hi It may be very difficult to assess your problem with so less information. However, there are many conditions that can result in localized random hair loss in male as well as females, such as alopecia areata, scarring alopecia, infections like ringworm, folliculitis, piedra, seborrheic dermatitis and folliculitis. Alopecia areata is a genetic condition which causes sudden round patches on the scalp along with inflammation of the roots of the hair follicles.
Avatar f tn i have dry skin, but i dont have any other skin conditions such as eczema. this is a big problem for me as almost all of my hair on my legs are ingrowing, which also makes me feel self concious. the ingorwn hairs are not red or bumpy, but just growing under my skin. i have tried to get rid of them by exfoliating and by using tweezers, but nothing seems to work.
