Fear of holes in the skin

Common Questions and Answers about Fear of holes in the skin


Avatar f tn I also was given the mini pill which I took religiously. Still in the back of mind the fear was there though. A few months later it returned with a vengeance as if it had been growing in my mind, waiting to explode. Again the persistent testing began, the googling everything and convincing myself I was pregnant. Obviously I wasn't but it never stopped the voice in my head. I began seeing a psychotherapist who diagnosed me with OCD.
Avatar n tn Have you spilled chemicals over your gloves? The holes that you have noted over the palm may coincide with the texture of the gloves you are using. Some chemicals may seep through gloves and may cause some skin reactions. Another differential here is a dyshidrosis. These appear as bumps or vesicles and they may be itchy. They may result from prolonged exposure to water or wet environments. You have mentioned of your palms sweating with the gloves on. This may contribute to your condition.
Avatar f tn the rash that i am getting started only in the red of my tattoo. The more i scratched it the more it spread. its little blister like bumps and itches like crazy. I have had this tattoo for about three years without a problem and my other tattoos with the same color in them don't do this.
Avatar n tn About six years ago, I noticed nasty little puckers and crepiness in the crook of my elbow. About six months ago, the skin under my underarm (on the inner side of my arm) started to look saggy. I have an antiaging blog and have used this to document everything logical to be done about this since many of my readers are experiencing the same.
Avatar n tn it's called desquamation Chronic mercury poisoning is most often due to occupational exposure or to industrial pollution of the environment. Depending on the amount and length of exposure and the age of the victim, symptoms include weakness, tremors, (my muscle spasms) progressive incoordination,(sometimes I feel like I might fall right off my bike) and paralysis. Numbness in the fingers and toes is an early sign of poisoning. Mental changes include lethargy and intellectual dullness.
Avatar n tn , [8] who have reported the presence of HPV 6/11 in 88% of the skin tags in Caucasian patients using PCR-RFLP technique. These observations strongly suggest that HPV, along with other cofactors, may be involved in the pathogenesis of these cutaneous lesions. Dianzani et al. [8] observed low quantity of HPV DNA in soft fibromas and explained their association with the clinical evolution of these lesions.
Avatar n tn In the middle of my first pregnancy at the age of sixteen, fifty-four years ago, this "thing' about the size of my little fingernail popped out at the front of my anus. I've just lived with it. But recently I've been thinking about having it removed. Have a small hemorrhoid pushing out at the side of it, and have also had outer veins in the anal area swelling and causing a lot of pain, itching, and misery. My "tag" has never caused any problem, physically or otherwise.
Avatar n tn I too have an indention in the back of my head, it is at the top and a little to the left. I started having headaches in October everyday. This is right about the time that I was laid off from my job. I noticed the indent probably about a year ago but it had never hurt and wasnt sensitive. Since October i have had the headaches and my head is very sensitive to the touch. One touch and the headaches start...
Avatar n tn They lay thier eggs on the skin hair and thier larva burroughs itself under the skin for ese of blood sucking. They come out from the skin pours in the night time or to take little fresh air during day time. The larva keeps crawling and bouncing on the skin surface when they come out.
Avatar f tn Infection of bearded skin may be the result of autoinoculation from tinea pedis or onychomycosis.” In other words, the mess on my face that had caused me so much grief and been misdiagnosed for decades was caused by the same fungus that gave my feet a problem.
936016 tn?1332769204 Consequently, interventions to reduce the spread of HIV need to be universally applied and the notion that the highest rates are in the poorest countries is part of the picture. Vickerman etc al, writing in the journal Sexually Transmitted Infections (2010:86:163-168) used mathematical modeling to estimate the impact of periodic presumptive treatment on the transmission of sexually transmitted infections and HIV amongst female sex workers.
Avatar n tn I have had TWO CLEAN MRI's of the BRAIN.(even after increase in symptoms) ...i know we talk about the 5 percent that dont show lesions........But i am lookin upon it as good news. Just wondered what people thought......Sorry its so long.
Avatar n tn I never would call it High for me but it was the ability to work like hell all day and still feel great at the end of the day get up in the morning and do it again that kept me going and now here I sit needing them to even feel normal im sure that is what draws many into the trap
Avatar m tn NOT sure about that, but I did hear that that sensation in the legs is a symptom of that, and that in some cases, the skin crawling sensation can occur all over the body, not just the legs, and still be considered RLS. Undecided about RLS possibility. The only other things I have going on that MAY be related, is an upper back pain/numbness... unknown cause. Been going on for years though. No diagnosis. So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane.
Avatar m tn • PART II 7. WHERE THE PROBLEM BEGINS You’ve got holes in your head. The sinuses are hollow spaces in the bones of your face. They help you breathe, by making the air warm and moist. They help you smell, by letting odors and fragrances waft up to your olfactory nerves, which transmit the smells to your brain. If you are using your voice correctly, you can feel your sinuses vibrate with sound.
Avatar n tn Bacterial Vaginosis and Yeast Infections may cause inflammation and small cracks in the folds of the skin, they do not cause cuts in center areas of the skin, and they heal without reoccurance once the infection is treated. An anal fissure can sometimes occur in the center area of the pernium (between the front and back) because of straining or constipation.
Avatar m tn About 2-3 weeks back I was eating a bag of chips, where I burped up a little of what I was eating and it felt like some of the chips got stuck in between where my sinus cavity meets the back of my throat. At the time there was a lot of pressure back there, and I kept swallowing in hopes to alleviate the problem. It worked until now. Now it feels like I have something stuck back there for the past 2-3 days. No pain really, just a very uncomfortable feeling.
Avatar n tn About 5 or 6 on each foot, and they're all in the same vicinity, on the callouses of the balls of my feet and big toe. They're extremely uncomfortable, not exactly painful, but they do hurt, especially when direct pressure is applied. Definitely not something I'd want to attack with clippers... It's not a wart or pimple. Doesn't match any pictures I've looked up for typical foot warts and the like. Mine aren't very big, not even the size of a pea.
Avatar m tn We had sex for around 30 mins and it went well , she was nice and condom stayed on , didnt notice any holes , etc. Yesterday as Im in the shower I notice raw skin / burn mark on the shaft of my penis , and I got terrified because I have no idea if that mark was actually covered by the condom .
Avatar f tn Hi! And welcome to the forum. I know exactly what you are going through. I went through the same thing. I was on a dangerous cocktail of oxi's/trams/and vicodins. For 3 years. You are on day 3 and are definitely in "The thick of it", which means, the worst part. I was jumping out of my skin around that time of my detoxing. Didn't get off the couch and ate chocolate all day!! Was my only pleasure. Regarding the RLS, you need to take hot Epsom salt baths.
Avatar m tn when in fact she had a type of rosecea that can give the feeling of bugs under the skin, it is the result of a virus, and yes u can get it in private areas....it drove her nutz...check out this site and see if it fits...the flies in ur home may be playing into what u r feeling...but do check this out. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn They seem to meld into the general pattern of scrotal folds when I let the skin go. There also seems to be a patterned area of skin that looks a little drier than the rest of that side of the scrotum. There are also what look like a few hair follicles without hairs? coming from them (you know those whitish bumps) that look like they have no tops, so that they look like they might have small, (and I mean very small), scabs or dry skin on top).
Avatar m tn I pick at everything, but only with my fingernails, never with needles or tweezers or anything, but I also bite the skin on my lips, the inside of my lips and cheeks, and the skin on my fingers. I guess this will be one more thing to talk to the therapist about...
Avatar m tn My Oral Thrush has formed after 8 days of taking Antibiotics.. I still have uneasy feeling , sick every day in the morning.. Can Oral thrush be early symptoms of HIV?? Am I at risk for HIV??
624074 tn?1263877407 First, the cerebral tonsils that r low lying in a chiari malformation patient is not the same and the ones u have stones in...we have 2 sets of tonsils.One in the skull and the other in the throat. May I ask did u ever have an injury to ur back or neck..whip lash?...something along those lines? There r sooooooo many conditions that have the same symptoms but r so different in the way they r treated and can be diff to dx .
Avatar f tn -) The dissemination in time component of the MS diagnosis is what the contrast helps with. In the presence of contrast lesions that are currently active, or have been active in the last 30-40 days will light up. If you have an MRI in which some lesions light up and others do not, you have proof of dissemination in time. Another way to prove this is to have repeat MRIs, at least 40 days apart. If there are additional lesions in the second MRI you have proof of dissemination in time.
429155 tn?1205676864 I went to my GP complaning of no sense of smell, saw a surgeon and surgery was recomended, I was given a prescription for Prednisone, a steroid, this gave me some sense of smell, and here's the but, I had the operation and still could not smell, so more Prednisone, well the upshot is that the steroids have caused my Osteo-Necrosis, this is when the heads of the long bones die, so have now had core decompression on one hip and the other totally replaced. Oxycontin.
Avatar n tn If so, what is the main reason of the fear? I am trying to decide if I should go. I have posted on here and to the doctor; my risks are so low that I should not even be worried about it. The same incident happen last year and it destroyed me for two months. Now its going on again, I can't go a day with out thinking of HIV. Am I just feeling guilt about my sexual behavior behind my girlfriends back? I drink to much and I live a sexually active life behind my girlfriends back.
Avatar m tn Every time one of our billions of cells uses oxygen to create energy, whoosh, out pop free radicals, mostly in the form of electrons looking to bond with another atom. Even after death, chemical reactions in the decay process form free radicals, so there's no escape. Experiments with mice have shown increase/decrease in free radicals has no difference. They have existed as long as life and from conception we are putting up with them.
