How to make red skin go away

Common Questions and Answers about How to make red skin go away


Avatar n tn Be careful to keep the blow dryer 10 to 15 inches away so as not to burn the skin with the heat. Take 25mg of zinc daily. This helps boost your immune system and heal the cellular structure of your skin. Take 300-500mg of L-lysine daily. L-lysine is a natural amino-acid which acts as building block for protein, which help strengthen cell-walls. Optional If you prefer to use over the counter Lotrimin, use it very sparingly. Meaning, only use a very thin layer of the cream on the affected area.
Avatar n tn Hyperpigmentation . What could I do to make it go away? or how long will it take to go away. ive had it for about 7 months .
Avatar n tn First of all stop using this face wash. Use a gentle one which does not make your skin dry. A localized rash can be due to dry skin or it could be atopic or contact dermatitis, psoriasis or even eczema. Once you stop using the face wash, and start applying oil based moisturizers, your skin will get back its essential nutrients. This will help in the long run. Meanwhile consult a skin specialist. Take care!
Avatar m tn It's red and it's swollen right now (it's even more noticeable because i have dark skin) How do i make it go away faster? I tried squeezing it but that just made it worse (i know, it was a bad idea) and i put some of my acne medication on it but it got irritated from that. Can someone please help me?
Avatar n tn The rash is not on the whole area of the band aid just 3 sides of the square outline of the bandaid. Please if anyone has any idea of what it is or how to make it go away I would appreciate it. It is bad enough I have to have a scar on my breat for life but now I am afraid that this rash is going to leave a permanate mark as well and that is very upsetting. It is very unsightly.
Avatar f tn After that i picked very slightly at 2 other small spots that weren't really anything and so my nose had some tiny red spots. I proceeded to put on makeup. Later i noticed the spots had spread to being a splotchy red across my nose. I wasn't sure why but continued to put on makeup. My theories were that maybe sleeping with my face in the pillow caused it, but now think it could be i used old makeup.
Avatar m tn the only thing that will relieve or make the rash go away is prescription ointment. my daughter suffers with dermatitis and nickel allergy. This is an annoying common problem in our house. she has a recurrent rash where the snap of her pants touch her skin. We have to use preventative (creative) measures to avoid the problem. Even have to refrain from some clothing due to metals in the materials.
Avatar m tn I have been through several cortizone base creams and the only thing that seems to help is vasiline or Aquaphor. Nothing seems to make it go away completely. Neural Dermatitis has been mentioned most recently. To complicate things even more I had a hemoroid issue that required they snip a tiny piece of the sphincter muscle. This after 2 years I still feel and all up the urethra on that side I feel like it irradiates. Does anyone have any ideas?
Avatar n tn A few possibilities to your symptoms are dermatitis due to friction or irritation,irritant dermatitis to soaps,detergents etc,balanitis(inflammation of the penis)or cherry angiomas(Cherry angioma is a cherry-red to purple colored benign skin tumor. A cherry angioma is painless and harmless and can be removed by cryosurgery or electrosurgery) Diagnosis can only be confirmed after clinical examination.So pls consult a dermatologist for that. Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn I know this was stupid. Ever since a lump has been there and it won't fully go away. It routinely settles down and then flares up with redness and pus inside. I have been to the Doc he gave me some cream but it still persists. I have even grown a beard to allow my face a rest and let any ingrown hair cycle run it's course.
Avatar n tn They all went down and now they are very small, I can see a bunch of tiny new ones with a magnifying mirror and bright light, otherwise I don't think I would know they were there. Will I have these forever? What can I do to make them go away and to keep them from spreading? What does Aldara do? I can't handle using that, especially on the mucus membranes. I've stopped drinking (wine) and eating sweets in the hopes to build up my immune system. Is that a factor?
Avatar m tn Partly for fun, I am going to new dermatologist on Monday to look at my skin and I am not going to give my history right away just to see what kind of answer I get. I am just going to reveal my current symptoms and let them do a physical exam. I'll update you on that. Overall I'm doing ok and know this soon shall pass.
Avatar n tn Perhaps, I've never learnt how to properly cleanse my face. Could you please tell me a daily skin-care regimen to prevent and maybe even get rid of this chronic problem? Also, what are the most effective methods to eliminate the scars??? Please help.....I'm pushing 40 now, I'd love to be free of this by then!!! Thank You!!!
Avatar n tn I also notice that ever since my rash in 2002, I tend to crop up with alot of blemishes on my skin. The worrying thing is that they do not go away, but instead linger indefinitely and make my face seem alittle older. I am not so vain as to care about the aesthetic side, but they do feel abit sensitive to any scratching.
Avatar m tn However, I had already been ignoring it before I saw him with no results. I'm hoping to go in for another visit soon, but does anybody have any idea what this could be and how make it go away? My doctor said he was sure it is not any sort of STD.
Avatar m tn For a couple weeks now, randomly, I have been getting red blotches under my skin on my hands. These episodes only last from a minute, to ten minutes and then usually go away. I don't think it's an allergic reaction. I am 14 years old, and wondering if I should go see a dermatologist about this. I just want to make sure nothing is wrong so I can stop being so paranoid.
Avatar f tn Without treatment, this usually takes about 6 months to resolve and for the skin color to go back to its normal color. Topical treatments with acids and chemical peels can be effective but can take a while for the skin to totally revert to its normal color. Microdermabrasion can also be done, but this might require several sessions. Skin resurfacing using lasers is also an option.
Avatar m tn Sorry to read this - skin issues can be a nightmare! Definitely make sure you go to a new dermatologist - they specialize with skin issues and can nail a solution so much faster than a general prac or others that don't specialize in this. (Try a dedicated derm office.) Check into dermatitis - typically takes a round of antibiotics and gel to apply apprx 2x/day for quite some time. Dermatitis can be aggressive and take time to manage.
Avatar m tn It does not itch, but it feels like an overall irritation and will get red if I am messing around down there. The skin does not hurt at all to the touch. During the day when I look at it (I am obsessed) it seems to look different every time. I went to the doctor about the irritation and he did an exam. He gave me hydrocortizone 2.5% to put on twice a day. It seems like more of the red dots are popping up under the skin. I have only been putting it on for 2 days.
Avatar f tn I do occasionally pluck, and have tried waxing but generally shave. How could I make this go away? I hate being so self conscious of my legs, especially in the summer.
Avatar m tn I went to a doctor in mid December and he said i might want to get a culture test to make sure if it's fungal infection and yes so I did go to the lab. It was confirmed fungal infection by culture test. The doctor gave me a cream and told me to use it for 2 weeks beside anti-fungal oral drug called ketoconazole. So yes, this time I used his cream and this anti-fungal drug for 15 days even though the redness itself had subsided in about a week.
Avatar m tn And how long will it take for the mark to go back to my normal skin colour? So in January 2015, I went running in a non-sports bra and the cup of my bra was digging into both of my breasts. Eventually, a scab formed on both of my breasts. Then, the scab fell off. After the scab fell off a pink mark, showed up in the same spot as the scab used to be in. I started using Mederma but I didn't think that this was having much of an effect.
Avatar n tn I know the internet is the worst tool as it relates to self diagnosing, but pictures of this seems to look most similar to my skin. I am discouraged, but going to try to find an answer. I'll let you guys know what I find out! Thanks for your thoughts!
Avatar n tn The wrinkles should go away after tx as they are cause more so by dehydration of the skin cell, from what I have been told. Again drink lotsa water and try the Aveno.
Avatar n tn (Sorry for the spelling)it was a little itchy They gave me prednisone and I took that for 6 days the rash got worse the doctor advised me that it may take awhile to go away but, I finally decided to go back to the doctor and that time they told me that I needed to see a dermatologist, and set me up with an appointment the next day (which scared me because in my area the wait to see someone is about 3 months).
Avatar n tn I was wondering if you have any recommendation of anything i can do to make the fungus and itching to go away and to heal the small cuts i have that i think reopen when i get an errection. I really don't want to go back to my Dr this week because I cant afford it and he will probably just tell me to go see a dermatologist which I cant afford. Thanks for your time and help, it Is greatly appreciated!
