Avatar m tn I'm 16 and have uneven blotches of reddish marks on the front of my body, on my neck and also one on my inner thigh.I have had them for as long as I can remember (so I am sure they are not allergic reactions) and I have just assumed they are birthmarks but it is only recently that I have realised that they may be rashes. They look a bit like hickeys and are similar in colour and have no sheen. They are normally flat with the skin but become bumpy if irritated.
97615 tn?1212682189 i've had chronic hives on top of the heat rash for about 1.5yrs now. and that's something very frustrating to accept. i usually just exercise when i know i'm not going anywhere. i know someone who was "allergic" to sunlight. she would blister like crazy..but hers disappeared in three years. so give it some time. if you weren't born with this...there's a good chance it will disappear.
Avatar n tn There is often little or no sweating in the affected areas adults develop miliaria rubra shortly after they're exposed to hot weather, but the rash more often appears after several months of exposure. The best treatment for any form of heat rash is to reduce sweating and wearing lightweight clothing. Once the skin is cool, heat rash tends to clear quickly. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn However, it seems from your description that the lesions might be some kind of allergic eruptions, milia, heat rash, skin infections / contact dermatitis. Hives are usually allergic caused by food and insect stings also besides medication or cosmetics. Sometimes they may also be due to infections, heat, cold or stress (emotional / physical). Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found.

Avatar n tn I have a itchy rash that itches first then welts up in lines then it goes away it usually occurs on my hands from the wrist area to my knuckles, my torso usually back area, and as a strong itchy tingling on the tip of my toes, but is not limited to these certain areas. I have had itching inside my ears, between my fingers, on my legs and feet.
Avatar n tn I've had this for about a year off and on - lately a lot more on than off. I will get rashes anywhere on my body (ranging from arms to legs, torso - everywhere). The skin will become itchy with very slight redness, or sometimes even bright redness. Interestingly enough, when I touch it - it's usually fairly hotter than my body. It's literally warm to the touch. When I scratch it (yes, they get VERY itchy) - it usually ends up in getting bumpy which of course, make it more itchy.

Avatar n tn Is it possible for a ten year old to have shingles without a rash??? He has been unwell for nearly a month now, but has had extremely sore neck front and back,chest and shoulders for about 2weeks. We have had two lots of blood tests all coming back normal. He is in excruiating pain mainly in the evening, he cant even stand water falling on his neck when having a shower and he definately wont let me touch it. He cries himself to sleep because he is in so much pain...
Avatar f tn Since the rash is an inflammation response and heat causes inflammation, ice was the best for me. I have seen numerous doctors and LOTS of tests. I do have Sarcoidosis but the bruises and itching and rash remain a mystery. I need help and don't know where to go now. (I do have celiac and am gluten free). Any cure out there?
Avatar f tn I have had the same problem for the past 2-3 weeks on my tattoo. I have had this tattoo for 10 years with no problem till now. In my case I did the tattoo myself and I know the needles were clean and the ink wasn't cut. It is only on the black ink in my case. has anyone here figured out yet what the cause or cure if any. I itch like crazy and stated off with a few small bumps and now have 30-40 little ones in a cluster. Need more info and help please, anyone!
Avatar n tn I read on a google search this can make the rash go away but not sure it. For now, getting rid of the rash would be good enough for me. Something to note is that the rash did expand a very short bit down my thigh but for the past 5 months or so it hasn't expanded rather stay the same. It also appears to almost rub off when I try off with a towel or apply alcohol to it with a dry rag. Both patchs are around 4 inches long and wide.
Avatar m tn Hello, Without examination, I cannot confirm a diagnosis but it can be contact dermatitis, sweat dermatitis, heat rash or tinea versicolor. Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus that lives in the skin of almost all adults. Factors that can cause the fungus to become more visible include high humidity and immune or hormone abnormalities. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines.
Avatar n tn Milia are formed directly from sloughed-off skin and usually found on the faces of infants and adults. They can result from use of harsh cosmetics or heat stress from sunlight or hot showers. You should consult a doctor (or a cosmetologist) for diagnosis and treatment.
Avatar m tn After taking it, I got this rash which my derm calls some type of dermititis. She checked it for bacteria and fungus and it is neither. I have tried creams, antibiotics, etc. The only thing that helps at all is ellidel, which I was told I shouldn't use long term. IF I skip one dose (2x a day) the rash gets noticeably worse. It isn't as bad in the summer months so i guess dryness, and indoor heat worsens the condition. I am so tired of having this and there being no answers.
Avatar n tn I started hunting today for a reason for my burning and found you all here... Like you, I have no rash. The spot on my back feels like a knife is inserted in it and burns like crazy.. This is on my left side of my spine.. This has been going on, on is spot for about 6 months.... It is always there but some days the pain is less than others... About 2 months ago I started the same thing in my upper thigh ( left side ) when the burning is sever it is enough to take me to my knees...
Avatar m tn It comes and goes but now stays for weeks or months at a time. No rash just the marks and scabs I create with the scratching. I did the thyroid tests and was a bit low but thyroid meds didn't stop the itch nor did primrose oil or omega oils, anithistimines, or any nutrition type rememdies. It wasn't dry skin either as I tried loads of different lotions and cremes, not sun exposure or any other thing I could find on the net that seemed to help other people.
Avatar f tn It was 15 months after the rash. I had severe neuro issues, MS- like symptoms already. I only took treatment for 4 months and then tired of driving out of state so I stopped going. I still don't think I would be be cured though. I recovered over several years to about 90%. Then it all came back again. I personally think early is at the time of the rash. I will say though, my neighbor had it and she thinks she was infected for several months prior to treatment.
73878 tn?1214056807 I'll be wishing minor sx and major viral load reductions for all. I'm heading out on my first vacation in a while and my very first on treatment. Heading for Cape Cod I demanded a room with a balcony on the bay in case. I figured if I do have a bad week I might as well have it reclining in a beach chair on the balcony and watching the sailboats. I'll eat a couple of lobsters for all ;-) Good luck to folks doing their first shot this weekend. You'll be off and running before you know it.
Avatar n tn I also have a large red patch under my right breast that stays red and sore. When I went to the doctor he just said it was heat rash. I asked him why if my breast were the same size I am only getting the heat rash under one?
Avatar m tn There are a lot of us who are doing treatment, some of us more than once, We all respond differently to treatment, for me the first two times were not so bad, I didn't feel great, but continued to work and carry on. This time the drug is different, harder on my body. With that said, every BODY is different, we all have different chemistrys, different attitudes, different concerns, that need to be addressed.
Avatar f tn McNabb felt it would be best that he go to a local Children’s Hospital for further treatment. In the Emergency Room at the Children’s Hospital they performed a head scan, blood work, urine test and x-rays which all came back normal. He was referred to their pediatric GI specialist. The GI Dr. placed him on Prevacid twice daily and Raglan. He began to break out in a rash after taking the Raglan one night, thus we discontinued it.
Avatar n tn Do you think that most people would find this an acceptable choice or would you go else were for treatment. Second, you say that any ethical psychatrist should send an addict to a 12 step group. I could not disagree more. The more we learn about addiction, the more it is becoming obvious that the source is a biochemical disorder of the brain. As an example, there is a treatment available in Europe called ibogaine therapy. The entire process takes about four days.
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar f tn The lesions can be due to some kind of allergic eruptions, milia, heat rash, skin infections / contact dermatitis. However, it seems from your description that the lesions might be a skin condition called milia. Milia, also known as milk spots are pearl-like whiteheads (may look like small grains of sand). They occur across the upper cheeks, under eyes, nose or chin and sometimes on the genitalia. They are benign, keratin-filled cysts seen in people of all ages.
Avatar m tn It's good that you are a researcher by inclination and experience -- that will do you well in this situation. ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) is the main voluntary group for MDs who think bigger thoughts about Lyme disease and its co-infections than other docs -- there is a huge split in the medical community about Lyme and how to treat it.
Avatar f tn If you are in serious pain and can't wait hours for it to kick in you can put a heating pad on the fentanyl patch, the heat releases the fentanyl from the patch alot quicker, there for reducing the waiting period substantialy. Also..normally you will change the patch every 72 hrs, but at the end of 48 hrs you can put another patch on, and remove the old patch as directed, usually after 72 hrs. This will keep a continous level of fentanyl in your system, and according to my experience and my Dr.
Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be contact dermatitis, allergic reaction, folliculitis, cysts, scabies( intensely itchy), heat rash or warts. Apply warm compresses,Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it.You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lumps persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
