Common Questions and Answers about Facial skin rashes in adults


Avatar n tn that's is most likely not skin cancer at all. it sounds like tinea versicolor possibly. google that term and look at the images. if that's what you have it is a fungal infection that is often times caught in tanning beds. that is absolutely not the only place people catch it, but common. and it is very very common on the chest and back. easily treatable. you'll need a prescription. skin cancer comes by way of scaly sores, weird bumps , lesions etc.
Avatar f tn It contains essential oils known for their antimicrobial  properties so i decided to apply it to my skin by saturating cotton rounds and applying it like you would a facial toner. This magical liquid did more for my skin in one day than the typical OTC antifungals had done in months (yes, MONTHS). I even pour some in my bath along with organic coconut oil (another antifungal) and Epsom salt (replaces magnesium in the body and eases discomfort by drawing out toxins).
Avatar f tn It's incredibly common and most folks who have it don't get obvious cold sores to know it. Everyone in the family should not kiss the baby on the facial area at all when they have obvious cold sores present. You can still transmit the virus to the baby when there aren't obvious cold sores present but avoiding that does go a long way. Also ask folks not to kiss the baby on the nose and mouth area too - that helps.
Avatar n tn I posted back in March with the sunburned skin feeling and finally had the last MRIs with contrast to rule out MS and they were all normal. The neurologist said that she didn't think there was anything wrong and I haven't had any symptoms since February. Like Julie, I was very stressed at the time this happened to me - just went back to work after maternitiy leave, financial burden of daycare, etc., company buy-out and layoffs. Things are much better now so hopefully it was stress related.
Avatar m tn A crawling sensation in skin is seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Very dry skin (you rule this out) and disorders of thyroid gland all can precipitate a crawling sensation. The other possibility is Morgellons disease often mimics scabies. The disease is believed to be caused by weak immune systems in people that have contracted the tick-borne Lyme Disease at some point in their life. It can also be a fungal infection like Tinea corporis.
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 Wow there have been a lot of people who have commented on this since my original question over a year ago! I still don't have an answer for mine, but I am really interested in what the outcome of the skin test for an29. That is one test they haven't done on me. I had my scans repeated in Oct. and the size of my indent had not changed since July. I basically have to watch to see if it changes. They still don't have any idea as to the cause. I do have a B12 def.
Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that.

Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar f tn Acne vulgaris, perioral dermatitis, rosacea, photosensitivity, seborrhoeic or atopic eczema, some forms of lupus erythematosus, or dermatomyositis. Are there other signs or symptoms present? If you have a history of allergies, this may be an allergic reaction or perioral dermatitis. It is important to keep your face clean and dry. Avoid manipulating the lesions.

Avatar n tn like depression or bipolar disorder, or something. Everyone in my immediate family does, but I don't admit believe in them. ...It's obvious I have Raynaud's, but what else can I have? Is anything sticking out at anyone? Anything I could be missing, or is this just something I have for an unexplained reason..? I don't understand. There has to be some reason I have this, right?
Avatar m tn BEfore I left my enzymes were in the 80s and my WBC count was low, but the Dr told me it looks like I am on the way to recovery--but I am still tireed and having dark urine and facial/neck/upper body rashes. Anyway, I asked the Dr how long I would feel this liver pain and she told me that it could take several weeks. How many is several? Does anyone know the average time or of an extreme case of how long it took for the swelling/enlargement to clear?
Avatar m tn oral to anal contact can be irritating to the skin. not surprising at all you got a + strep culture from the skin in the anal area previously either. Probably wasn't worth antibiotics but if you keep getting rashes, even without sexual contact, be sure to follow up properly on them. in the future, not a bad idea after you've received oral to anal contact to just treat the skin with a barrier cream like a&d or desitin to soothe and protect the skin after it's been irritated.
Avatar m tn I have seen that there is a bit of a debate between the dermatologists and STD specialists on this point of MC transmission in adults always being sexual in nature. Which leaves me a bit confused too I guess. I do know that the one mistake I made almost a year ago was the only thing for me and I completely trust my wife. I may never figure out exactly how this happened. What are your thoughts? I truly respect and look forward to your opinion.
Avatar n tn The typical "butterfly" facial rash in lupus occurs in 1/2 of patients. It is likely that your physician wants to ensure that no other rheumatological diseases can cause the buttock rash. Fatigue, fever, and weight loss are typically present some time during the course of the disease, occurring in 50 to 100 percent of patients. Joint symptoms occur in over 90 percent of patients at some time during the illness and are often the earliest manifestation.
Avatar f tn when i sit or wear restricting clothes that rub on them. These 'pimples' look like facial pimples, there are about 5 and do not join to one another like 'classic' herpes. There are 1-2 red areas inside my labia near the entrance to the vagina but I cant see if they are blisters or just irritation rashes though they do appear to be raised. I also have a very itchy entrance to my vagina and an off white thin discharge that has no odour. These are my only symptoms and this is my history...
Avatar n tn Carbamazepine is more rapidly metabolized to CBZ-E in children than in adults. In children younger than 15 years of age, there is an inverse relationship between the CBZ-E/CBZ ratio and increasing age; this ratio was reported to be 0.44 in children younger than 1 year old and 0.18 in children 10-15 years of age. Carbamazepine also undergoes aromatic hydroxylation to form 2-hydroxycarbamazepine and 3-hydroxycarbamazepine.
Avatar f tn Sores unbelievabley pop up in mouth, the skin tags on bottom of tounge then on top, then sores travelled to throat (HURT). Was missed diagnosed with 4 doses of Nystatyn and 3 biopsies later, it is not thrush, I've never had anything like that. Eyes extremely dry and hurt. Speach impediment, my words get twisted up and I uesd to be intelligent but feel can't even carry on conversation, lose thought process in middle of sentence, now, sores have moved to outside my mouth.
Avatar n tn No more nothing, perfect intestines now. Celiac in adults is frequently brought on after severe trauma, stress, physical illness. Never crossed my mind this could happen to me, I could eat anything, and I am not allergic to anything otherwise. Don't cross food allergies of your calender. Got to go, hubby is getting a pacemaker tomorrow morning. Ina PS I'll come back to the laser.

748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
Avatar n tn htm The rash of shingles usually recurs in the same area because of the dermatomal or skin pattern the nerve follows. I would suggest that you have this assessed by an infectious disease specialist. This is contagious and it is important to observe frequent hand washing and to keep the affected areas covered. It is necessary that you take antiviral medications during the first 2-3 days of rash manifestation.

Avatar n tn Study of skin rashes after antibiotic use in young children. By Huang SW, Borum PR. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9793729?dopt=Abstract It is what made me want to switch to the dye-free amoxicillin for my baby (which I will hopefully do tomorrow). Hope this helps someone else out there!
Avatar m tn I may not have HIV, but I DO HAVE SOMETHING and the smptoms are very similar to ARS and early HIV infection such as persistent thrush, skin rashes on my face/neck/upper torso that keep me indoors, fatigue, headaches behind the eyes, the symptoms come and go. I also realise that these symptoms can be from other diseases/viruses, but my doctors can't rule out HIV yet due to my weakend immune system. They feel seroconversion is being delayed and my ARS is being extended at this point.
Avatar n tn I went to many doctors who prescribed me topical steroids, drops, they would temporary help but in the end not enough and I now suffer from thinning of the skin around my eyes which is permanent. My skin was steroid addicted. I went cold turkey and stopped using steroids. I searched the internet and tried the many remedies suggested; shampoos, hot compresses..........nothing really helped. My eyes would tear constantly. I was a mess. One day I purchased Dr. Hauschka eye balm. Wow.
Avatar n tn My blisters only last for about a week before they start drying out and turning into thick yellowish itchy skin that peels so that the new skin comes in. The flare ups can also be stress related. Soaking my hands in Aveeno collidal oatmeal bath 3 times a day for 10 minutes help the blisters to dry up faster and when the dry skin comes you must keep your hands moisturized with and ointment like Aquahor and a prescribed medication as well that your dermatologist will give you.
