Common Questions and Answers about Facial skin folds


Avatar n tn (just a little cough and runny nose) It is rough to the touch but is not blistered (feels almost like very dry skin but it's not cracked) It is very red and it's been getting bigger for the past week or so. (she's had it for about a week and a half) I was not able to get a dr's appointment until next Wednesday so I was hoping you could tell me if there is anything I can put on it?? Thanks!
Avatar n tn My niece has seen numourous doctors skin specialist and no one has been able to correctly treated her. She lives on constant cream or vasolene type ointments around her lips and cheeks. It is painful and tiresome for her. She is 11 and in the sixth grade. Some doctors she has gone to don't seem to take this as a serious matter. Her mother which is my sister lives with my mother and relies on others mainly because my sister has suffered a tramatic brain injury in a car accident.
Avatar m tn The goal was to identify “specific components of facial ageing” that were affected by smoking. Scores on several measures of facial ageing were significantly worse for the smokers. The smokers had more sagging of the upper eyelids, as well as more bags of the lower eyelids and under the eyes. Twins who smoked also had higher scores for facial wrinkles, including more pronounced nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth), wrinkling of the upper and lower lips and sagging jowls.
Avatar n tn I have been to 3 dermatologists now for this, over the last 9 months. It is a facial rash. Itchy, bumps. Not really a pimple because there is no head. I have no flushing, just irritated skin. I have been through allergy testing, nothing showed up. I have been through treatment for rosacea, nothing helped. I tried treatment for steriod rosacea, again did not help. And finally this last week I went to a dr. who said it could be a yeast rash.
Avatar n tn All the vet said was that the pills he gave us for the ear infection should clear up the raw skin folds as well, which they did. He didn't mention if it was caused by allergies, and we didn't ask because at the time we didn't realize dogs could have that. Does this sound like an allergy problem, and is there anything else I can do for him?
Avatar n tn Hi, I went to a dermatologist before and they said I might have eczema but at the same time another dermatologist said it's just some sort of allergy. I have red itchy skin on my face on my t zone and cheeks. It gets really itchy especially when I'm stressed or when it gets warm. So summer days are not so good for me and winter is great. It's not dry or anything just red and itchy. At the same time I have little red spot rashes on my neck.
Avatar n tn It 'can' cause weight gain in the midsection, facial hair, discoloration/darkening of skin around neck and other body 'folds', elevated testosterone and irregular periods. Very common in young women. It has a host of other symptoms but these are pretty common ones. Might be something to look into.
Avatar f tn I have also had blood tests done but everything is normal. The specialist suggested I wait until the skin crusted slightly (which is what it used to do every so often) and when that crust fell off I should get the nurse at my surgery to take a swab for a more conclusive result but since that visit nearly six months ago, I have had no crustation!
1565203 tn?1295230883 I also have been struggling with painful lumps on the outer area(not inside folds) of my vagina skin. I am wondering if the two could be related. Maybe I have an infection? I have had hpv and recieved successful cyrotherapy treatment with no reoccuring breakouts. The lumps are what really concerns me. They are unlike warts or bumps. I have had one cut out before and don't want to do this again.
Avatar f tn Hello, I'm 22 years old and my skin is premature aging. I've had acne since my teens now red marks and scars and acne. I wear a stable high spf uva protecting sunscreen and my face is always tans and burns at least a little, even though I'm never in the sun for very long, I burn through my clothes. I did not have this problem when I was younger. My skin, has very little volume to it.
Avatar n tn I have what looks like a whitehead / pimple / raised bump, that I noticed on last week on July 10th, right in the crease where my skin folds on my chest, right at my sternum, dead center on my chest. But it could be a herpes blister. It's very very small. I didn't think anything of it earlier; it wasn't red at all, or inflamed, and I itched all over, not just in that one spot. Plus I didn't remember her being that high up on my chest, I remember her being mostly on my stomach.
Avatar n tn Hi there, I have had symptoms since last June (07) that I have had all infectious conditions ruled out. I am now looking at biopsy of the vulvar skin to uncover some answers, so I wanted to post here to see if any other women have gone to a dermatologist and had results. I have posted on the women's health forums here, but since i have ruled out std's, fungus, bacteris, yeast, hormone levels, strep-B, etc etc, this is clearly a skin issue.
Avatar n tn Her Doctors are stumped as to why the hair in her sideburns area keeps growing under her skin where the side burns should be. She has described a net like skin she saw, underneath her facial skin. Her hair is retracted into her facial skin, it is so odd! Her sideburns is just blank now, with hair growing underneath!!
Avatar n tn Another reason for dark skin conditions maybe the presence of a skin disorder, known as acanthosis nigricans, which is a skin disease characterized by dark wart like patches in the body folds; may be benign or malignant. This skin condition causes dark patchy marks in areas where folds of skin are present especially in the neck, the armpits, below the breasts, including the inner thighs.
Avatar n tn Curiously, my facial skin and skin tone looks like that of someone in her early 30s. The elasticity in my face is still there but my arms can be pinched and stay pinched due to breakdown of elastin fibres. As I see it, there are two things happening: loss of subcutaneous fat (associated with menopause) and loss of elasticity associated with the aging process and particularly glycation. It's frustrating as all h*ll.
Avatar m tn Three days ago I started feeling like whatever this was is now in my skin (I'm certain of it), It's under the skin on my face, my scalp, my back, my toes, and my feet. I can feel it crawling in and out of my anus at times also. Went to the dermatoligist today and of couse he says it's my imagination, some people get it. He's subscribed me some DEXEPIN for depression. :( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up.
Avatar n tn In Rosacea there is facial flushing, small pink bumps, and redness of the cheeks and nose In Lupus the skin changes are exacerbated by sunlight exposure. It can present as red, raised patches or a generalized rash on the nose, ears, cheeks, and base of the nail folds. In seborrheic dermatitis or seborrhea there is redness and scaling of the face, ears, eyebrows, and scalp.Ths is only speculation. Get it checked by a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Best of luck and kind regards!
Avatar n tn If there are deep wrinkles they are caused by a loss of volume in the tissue below the skin. These folds can be corrected through cosmetic surgery, but can also be reduced by performing facial exercises. Please check with your doctor to ensure that your condition is not caused by a more serious problem. Seek medical help. Write to me again. Best of luck and kind regards!
Avatar n tn But I seem to see on the internet people suggesting to wash with it every day for facial use. Is this correct, or should it only be used every three days for facial use as well?Is there a difference between scalp and face in this regard?
Avatar m tn this problem started in the folds of my nose 2 years ago as skin flaking and been using the topical hydrocortisone cream ever since. Its got really worse when i got a really severe sunburn on my cheeks and nose because i forgot to wash of the cream when i went to the beach. I stopped using the cream and some redness went away but is my skin permanently damaged..is there any way to reverse it...
Avatar n tn It occurs when the sweat gland ducts get plugged due to dead skin cells or bacteria and leads to irritation, itching and to a rash of very small blisters most specially to the face, neck, under the breasts or skin folds, that may rub against clothing, such as the back, chest, and stomach. This can be prevented by avoiding activities that induce sweating, using air conditioning to cool the environment,wearing light clothing and in general, avoiding hot and humid weather.
1040373 tn?1273691088 We've tried Benadryl 2X per day and 2 rounds of steroids. His little folds get so red and recently he scratched his eye while itching. I try to clean his folds with baby wipes but he hates it so I don't do it as often as I could/should. When we took him in for to get the eye treated, the vet put him on a different dose of prednisone along with Tramadol for 10 days. I haven't noticed any change in his facial redness. The vet said he's not convinced it's an allergy.
Avatar n tn Signs of PCOS Multiple ovarian cysts Irregular or absent menses Infertility Acne Obesity or inability to lose weight Excessive body or facial hair (hirsutism) Insulin resistance and possibly diabetes Thinning of scalp hair Velvety, hyperpigmented skin folds (acanthosis nigricans) High blood pressure Polycystic ovaries that are 2-5 times larger than healthy ovaries.
Avatar f tn It is red, kind of scaly. I figured that it was just dry skin because they are drooling so much, but after applying a pretty heavy cream several times a day for the last few days it still doesn't appear any better. Does anyone have an idea what this may be? One of them had Fifth Disease a few weeks ago. Could this be part of it? I'm in the process of changing their insurance, so it will probably be a couple of weeks before I can take them to see their doctor.
Avatar n tn Hi, Restylane is a gel of hyaluronic acid produced by bacteria and used for treating facial wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is normally produced by the body. Hyaluronic acid is what gives skin its volume and fullness. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is called non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA) because it is not derived from animal sources.
Avatar f tn Have you ever seen Ehlers Danlos present with extreme photosensitivity (malar rash without sparing naso folds and reaction to both fluorescent and outdoor UV on arms, thighs, chest, face and neck)? ANA negative; Celiac panel normal; thyroid normal; panel normal; etc.
Avatar n tn I am 28-years-old and have been experiencing moderate to severe redness on my face, most pronounced in the nasolabial folds or creases around my nose. I have very oily skin and have been to a dermatologist, who prescribed retin-a. However, I don't think he accurately diagnosed the redness around my nose. He said that he thinks I have seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp, but didn't comment on my nose. I think the seborrhea is causing the redness.
Avatar n tn Yes, it is possible for dog's to develop yeast infections especially in moist anatomical locations such as in ears, lip folds, facial folds, vulva, perianal area and more. The yeast is most commonly malassezia rather than candida. The infection that your dog may have sounds to be one of the following: an urinary tract infection, vaginal infection, or an infection of the skin of the perivulvar area. The infection could be bacterial, yeast, or a combination.
Avatar n tn I've had several punch biopsies over the last few years...for facial skin lesions that wouldn't heal and continued to "ooze". I did recently request copies of the pathology reports just to have them for my records.
Avatar f tn Since then i've had almost daily tingling, skin crawling, and this has been more than a year. This sensation seem to cover my whole scrotum or large parts. I've not had any lesions or blisters. For years I have had irritation after sex, particularly if i don't clean my penis after sex or at certain times of the month in my partners cycle. This irritation would make the whole of my penis head and foreskin red/sore. Over a couple of days it goes and is almost like my skin peels.
