How did white skin evolve

Common Questions and Answers about How did white skin evolve


Avatar n tn I too have white circles under my eyes. Unfortunetly, I also have redness on my cheeks and nose so it always stands out. Total raccoon eyes! I'm a 47 year old male and the white circles have been there for years. I too thought it was from sunglasses, which I no longer wear. I've not talked to a doc about this yet. I eat a strict paleo diet and have been for six months. No grains, no sugar. No omega 6 oils. Everything we eat is made from scratch. It has not helped.
Avatar f tn Did anyone ever find out what is causing this and how to get rid of it? I have the exact same symptoms as everyone else, inner thigh, inner upper arms, left side of stomach and lower stomach beneath belly button. Am itching and bruising in all these places. Haven't been to dr yet.
Avatar n tn I am seeing an intermittant flash of white light in my left peripheral vision that looks like a moving circle or C. I can see it with my eye open or closed and it seems to be worse at times. Sometimes I don't notice it, but if I am in a dark ambient environment, I can sometimes see it flash every few seconds. Sometimes I don't notice it at all. I am 47 y.o. and it just started a few months ago. Any ideas?
Avatar m tn I suspect it is old-school think, by docs who at that point in history did not know how troublesome Lyme is, and how difficult it is to get rid of an established case of Lyme. Does it look like a Lyme bite, you ask. Dunno. They all look different. But anything that even vaguely looks like a possible Lyme tick bite, I would get treated. Again: the risk of dealing with an established Lyme infection vs the risks of a [10] day course of doxy are a no-brainer for me: take the doxy. Now.
Avatar n tn I hate these withdrawls and I feel like maybe I shouldn't have gone cold turkey so I keep telling myself that maybe I should get these pills and try to come off of them slowly. Does anyone know how long these withdrawls will last? Any advice? PLEASE!! Thanks!
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 30 years old white male. A pigmented spot appeared on my glans during the last 3 months and is now 3mm wide. I visited my dermatologist, but he said the spot is quite new and have not a clear structure yet so he suggested 4 possible diagnostics that we shall validate over time: 1)Nevocellular nevus 2)Genital Lentigo 3)Pigmented papilloma 4)Incipient Melanoma Obviously I am very scared about the 4th diagnosis so I wonder what are the odds my pigmentation to evolve to melanoma?
529981 tn?1212853666 My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair.
Avatar n tn I was wondering how I would be able to distinguish HPV from Herpes. What I have are visible genital warts, including a few clear white bumps in my genital area. Is it possible to have herpes and not have any pain? Additionally, I don't have any sores on other parts of my body besides my genital region. The urologist just did a visual test on me and determined that I had genital warts but didn't mention anything specifically about herpes. Just asking the question for peace of mind.
Avatar n tn Molluscum presents with an umbilicated center and they usually are skin colored. I do not see any depressions or umbilications in the bumps. For how long have you noted this? Has this been present for months? I suggest that you have blood tests taken for STD's nevertheless given a significant sexual history. At this point, you may continue to observe the symptoms if this is something of recent onset. The bumps may evolve in appearance which can aid better diagnosis.
Avatar m tn I did put baby rash cream on them and it instantly turned these red spots into white blisters overnight. I have done a lot of research on this matter ansd the conclusion I have came to is that it must be candidaisis or herpes. The marks do look very much like balanoposthitis which i beleive it a form of a yeast infection and since they do not hurt it is leading me to think that it may not be herpes.
Avatar n tn It actually kind of burned my mouth and I noticed I had vey small vesicles on the lips, mainly upper, they show as white spots and are visible only when I push with my tongue to stretch the skin, my guess is they are underneath several layers of skin . I looked at that, and thought I have had this before. It doesn't show when my lips are just closed . I doesn't hurt, doesn't tingle nothing. I only paid attention to it since I have been checking myself like crazy for weeks.
Avatar n tn If this was your first episode of herpes, the culture should be positive. The fact that the rash did not evolve to form small blisters, makes it somewhat unlikely that this was herpes. In terms of sorting this out, there are many different things that could casue such a rash. I would think that that seeing a dermatologist would be a good idea at this time. The sooner the better. As for a blood test, it is a bit early for the test to be positive.
2015036 tn?1333001388 I simply can't have iron at all because the rash gets so bad that it blisters and the skin comes off as if it's been burnt. Hope you find something that works for you.
Avatar n tn As of this morning, things have settled back down a bit, but it looks like a few of them (the ones clustered on the shaft under the lip of the head) have a bit of white scabbiness to them. Most of them are less red and some have almost gone away. So, my questions: 1) Does this sound like herpes to you? 2) Would I have an outbreak that would be visible 4-6 hours after masturbating - how long does an outbreak take to show up after something like that?
Avatar n tn I had 2 tiny warts (one in the public hair line and directly below) and promptly had them frozen off. My skin is currently healing up and am using Aldara on those areas.
Avatar m tn - two very swollen lymph node (size of large bean) sticking out in middle of right neck.
Avatar m tn got out, went to try and I always check myself out and omg, all around my urethral opening was blood red,, and the white line of skin going down from the spot was also turning and went blood red. Has scared the hell out of me, first time that has happened. Redness has died down now but pain is worse.
629189 tn?1225405848 People with this disorder have attacks that cause the blood vessels to narrow. When this happens, blood can't get to the surface of the skin and the affected areas turn white and blue. When the blood flow returns, the skin turns red and throbs or tingles. In severe cases, loss of blood flow can cause sores or tissue death. Cold weather and stress can trigger attacks. Often the cause of Raynaud's is not known.
1530342 tn?1405020090 This is a move so that more people's voice actually gets heard. I live in NY. Not gone to a R since Ronnie. Yet for the most part NY votes R, yet because NYC holds so many people it's a D state. So my vote does not count. In my life time my vote for President has not counted. Now if an EC for my district went to the Pres. then my vote would could. I actually floated this idea out on a thread a while ago, before the election. It is 100% fair.
Avatar f tn My parents had some serious prejudices though they would not say so if you asked them, it was clear by many of the things they said to me about other peoples. My Mom did try to move out of it and I am proud of how hard she worked to be a better person. I had an awareness as a child of these things but had I not see her grappling with her own prejudices, I may not have worked so hard on it myself.
868575 tn?1250191618 Did the docs confirm Sarcoidosis? What has the treatment been? How are you today? I just received a preliminary diagnosis of cardiac Sarcoidosis from my cardiologist. I am a runner and out of the blue, I started having an irregular heartbeat...much like what is listed above. I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and Raynaud's phenomenon. The docs have found, in a completely healthy heart (structure wise), a massive nerve block on the right side of my heart.
Avatar n tn I have personally found exercise to increase my body weight,My muscles get bigger and I eat more and feel terrific,my muscles are taught and tight and very sexy and I look great,whereas if I have had a binge on Heroin all of my muscles dissapear and my skin looks white and deathly,my Brain dissolves into a self mutilating pleasure seeking machine and my body dangles from it like an unnecessary extenstion.
Avatar m tn I would assess risk profile as at least moderate for type2. Activities involved only genital to non-genital contact to visibly clear skin, close body contact, with no intercourse (of any kind) but involved multiple partners of unknown status. There was only one episode of oral to near-genital contact (no entry). Seems now I cannot tell whether my results are due to HSV1, HSV2, both, or neither of these viruses.
Avatar m tn One last question, what’s your dosage and how long have you been doing it to be cured as of now? Say roughly, how long did it take you? Thank you. Thank you for sharing your cure. I’d like to add that ‘saccharomyces boulardii’, SP, is used in the medical community and traditional medicine to control bacterial based problems only. SP as a yeast, doesn’t attack other yeast (candida), it attacks other bacteria.
Avatar n tn I have no plants inside my office or house. There are trees outside,and I have ivy growing on my house. But it just feels like they are constantly around me personally. Thank you for replying Paul.
Avatar m tn new symptoms of newcomers, and then our similarities in symptoms afterwards - when we read about them and think the whole time and trying to find symptoms ANYWHERE) This forum is really a big threat - I want the only thing - That there will be only my comment in the whole thread - You will understand everything, just read more I was searching through my whole idea about deep breathing and how it helps.

Avatar n tn A child who has contracted scabies can also develop a bumpy red rash. Scabies is contagious, and is usually transmitted by skin-to-skin contact or through sexual contact with someone else who is infected with it. The infection spreads more easily in crowded conditions and in situations where there is a lot of close contact — like child-care centers or nursing homes.
Avatar n tn I tried everything from changing soaps, detergents, how I wash, lotions, etc. But I did notice something this weekend. I stayed at the Hilton hotel in SF & they have a water softener in their hotel water. When I showered & shaved, I had very minor itching. It didn't bother me at all. I'm now wondering if its my city water & whats in it. The itch is mainly on my legs & a little on my arms. I'm hoping I hit on a solution as this has been very trying for me.
