Laser skin interaction

Common Questions and Answers about Laser skin interaction


Avatar n tn It looks just like the type of skin tags some people sometimes get in their armpits. It is skin colored, sticks out maybe the thickness of a pen tip. It doesn't hurt or anything, it's just there, and in a bad place. Does anyone have any idea?
Avatar n tn Its a hard pea-sized bump under my skin, and can be pushed around a bit. I was thinking it was a cyst, but is it normal for it to develop within 8 hours? I normally have a bit of vaginal discharge, but it seems to have increased the past few days. Any ideas for what it might be? I don't think it is an STD because i havent seen my boyfriend since the summer... so haven't had sex since then ( he has been my only partner).
Avatar n tn They seem harmless, a bit itchy sometimes, and I am not sure it the action taken to avoid potentially spreading them is worth the loss of interaction with my family. What have the doctor around here said?
Avatar m tn I have what I believe to be a wart on my forehead. Its quite raised, redish and looks much like a pencil eraser. A few days after using a freezing kit I bought at CVS, the surface was covered with what I'm guess are dead blood vessels, as they look like dead-skin colored "hairs". The "hairs" are only visible close up. The wart stil remains , but I've just given it a second treatment and was a little more thorough this time so hopefully it takes care of it.
Avatar m tn After some thinking, he did state that many people have atypical symptoms and the reddened skin on my penis might be that. He suggested an IGM test. I told him that from what I have read here that this test was not useful. I asked if he could swab the red areas and he said that they were not wet and would not yield any results. I was also able to speak to the stripper with whom I had the contact and she denies having genital herpes.
Avatar m tn How do I differentiate penile cancer from genital warts? Recurrences in the area where there are dozens use to involve the skin cracking and bleeding, but now just turn bright red and itch like crazy. Please recommend something, I am an intelligent rational person but I am becoming indifferent to continuing my life with this challenge.
Avatar f tn I live in New Orleans and there is a place called Laser Center of LA. , they laser certain parts of your body, I forgot which, instruct you to drink plenty of h2o for a week, and the nicotine cravings leave. They do follow up txs if needed, it really works , but he has to want to quit.
Avatar f tn I have just started with this itch on my upper arm and I have scratched my skin so bad it looks horrible!!!! I keep ice and topical creams on at night and gel/cream during the day but the itch does not stop. It's much worse at night. This just started two months ago and I have no idea where it came from or how to stop it. :( If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it!
156085 tn?1204330585 When they locally encounter an HCV invader on its slow way in , eg at the mucosal entry site in the superficial tissue after sex, or in the skin after kittys infected claws have scatched, they engulf the invading virus - like in the old days, because their grandfathers were macrophages, predator cells, that know how to atttack and "eat and digest" and process its proteins/antigens in a highly specific fashion, cutting them into short specific peptides either 10 or 20 amino acids lon
Avatar n tn Honestly, there are many people who have this problem and if your skin is as light as mine, unfortunately it is far more noticeable. The only thing I can tell you is, if you know when it will show up then wear a turtle neck that day. My daughter has to do presentations with the type of job she has and that is what she does and just laughs it off if someone mentions it. It's kind of like having "white coat syndrome" except it shows up in your neck and chest.
Avatar n tn Mesosilver is a big no no, as far as I'm concerned--silver accumulating in the body turns the skin gray, and how salubrious could that be? After you research quite a bit more you'll probably agree that you should avoid this stuff at all costs. However, there are safe and sensible alternatives out there. After my monotherapy failure I relied on Traditional Chinese Medicine and a rigorous herbal protocol for fourteen years to halt fibrosis progression and to dispel pain and fatigue.
Avatar n tn So is it the lip gloss I've been using that I had for a while or is it from dry skin? And I also had a dry patch of skin under my bottom lip. Any suggestions on what to do?? Should I use blistex to make sure my lips are not dry?
Avatar f tn After doing some research, I believe it is an over production and build up of sebum on the scalp. I have had acne problems, have rosacea, and my skin and hair is very oily. I found balancing shampoos on line that are supposed to prevent sebum build up. Aveda is one of them, but I haven't tried it. Sebum: substance with an oily consistency produced by the sebaceous glands. It lubricates hair, is an antifungal/antibacterial, and imparts waterproofing properties to the skin.
Avatar f tn hi, i'm not sure but i hope somone can help -all i can think of is a nerve issue, it may not be at the site if the pain -i suffer from very sensitive and painfull skin in my groin area and this is due to nerve damage at the spine... all the best T.
Avatar f tn I went to a reputable plastic surgeon and he told me that even if I do have lipo, which is what I went to him for, the skin might not tighten up since its been stretched out for so long and I might have a flat front but sagging skin...Not sure what I should do. I will say, however, that I have had wonderful men in my life and wonderful sex and it has never been an issue with men.
724734 tn?1230944872 I don't know! When it comes to vision, maybe laser eye surgery would be the only treatment. With the lightheadedness, I am on medications so this could be a side effect of something. Unfortunately it's hard to figure out which one! For insomnia, I've gone down to just prescription Restoril. I slept better than I thought I would, but took longer to fall asleep. Better one medicine than five. I think I could adjust to it, it will just take some time.
Avatar n tn Of course if I don't move just right everything is fine, but when I do something that is just right it feels like something has ripped through my skin, muscles, bone, etc. It really is painful sometimes. I was searching in the hopes that someone else not only had the same issues, but had a diagnosis as I am getting tired of spending $20 for my doctor to say take some motrin.
Avatar f tn Placing permanent metal dental implants in allergic patients can provoke type IV or I reactions. Several symptoms have been described, from skin rashes and implant failure, to non-specific immune suppression. Objective: Our objective was to evaluate the presence of titanium allergy by the anamnesis and examination of patients, together with the selective use of cutaneous and epicutaneous testing, in patients treated with or intending to receive dental implants of such material.
Avatar f tn I will tell you she is a nervous wreak at the vet, especially since the toe mass/amputation, which turned into 2 surgeries to get it to close (he was working with very little skin and a large tumor). She begins shaking as soon as we get in the car, so I know this has an impact on her BP readings at the Vet. At the emergency vet, they used a Doppler BP and were able to get a normal reading. Is it "normal" for the protein to change (decrease) in the urine?
Avatar n tn There were symptoms that came gradually such as headaches, bouts of fever attributed to 'flue', occasional skin irritations, allergies, then came irritability, depression, joint problems, tingling sensation under the skin (neuropathy), muscle cramps, fatigue, slight foggishness or mental overactivity, stomach problems, kidney problems, even boils and swolen lymph nodes.
Avatar f tn What's more, I did not have the hallmarks of either Scleroderma or Lupus (no hard skin, no mylar rash, no photo-sensitivity). Things did not quite fit together in my head or in my heart. I was praying a lot for direction (and because I felt so bad) and I started to research what other things might be caused by my "very specific" Nucleolar pattern.
Avatar n tn I guess I would describe it as if a cold metal object were touching the skin there. Do I have prostatitis? I am 23 years old. I had a follow up appointment with the doctor about the cramping on Wednesday, and I told her about the pressure pain, and she didn't know what it was and checked the radiology report and said my prostate was good and stuff, but I have another follow up on Tuesday. If she does not believe I have prostatitis, should I seek another doctor?
Avatar n tn He had tried cold turkey many times and suffered the horrible w/d symptoms, sweating, leg cramps, insomnyia, edgy feelings, skin crawling, restless legs, double sneezes, yawning. He went online searching for help and even went into a rehab center where he wasn't treated nicely. They all required around $6,000.00 for detox which we could not afford. When he told me I was relieved to find out what was going on and began immediately to find a way to help him.
Avatar n tn Also it feels not like a muscle pain, but only skin deep, despite the extremeness of the pain. Someone suggested to me that a pinched nerve can cause this- the nerve being pinched by tight clothing. So, I have, today, worn the loosest pants that I own and so far so good. I hope your thigh pain has ceased. and I hope this will end my thigh pain. I just got a new job and cannot afford to loose it... Let me know if or how you resolved your leg pain.
Avatar f tn its miserable, as you all know. the crawly feeling, the teeth crushing together thing, the skin feeling thick, ect. I guess I can be glad I don't LOOK like a freak, I just FEEL like one. no one would know my chin and lips were numb unless I told them. im able to master eating and talking normally. chances are, its permanent and no vitamin, or heating pad, or anything will help it. its NERVE damage. nerves are what makes people basically live. when a nerve is damaged, its damaged.
Avatar n tn And I did wonder whether the tachycardia was a delayed allergic reaction to the skin test but it was a good 7 hours after the test when things started. I'd better not miss the after christmas sales because of all this! :P P.S. Do you have to take xanax all the time or only when you feel a panic attack coming?
298579 tn?1192250448 Yet another woman here, relieved to find she's not alone. I've had the same symptoms since age 33, and I'm 53 now. Mine started when I had a botched laser cone biopsy of my cervix which left my cervix a mass of scar tissue. I always assumed that my pain had something to do with my screwed up cervix. My symptoms were so weird that I never mentioned them to my doctor. I've done a bunch of Google searches but never got the right one to get any information.
