Avatar f tn Are they small thin stripes and are they black, blue or really grey? I am not a doctor but just trying to help. Sometimes black stripes can be heart problems. They don't mention gray stripes. There are lots of reasons for the stripes and it sounds like you are immunocompromised by being sick all the time or that you have a viral infection. I'm not sure who to refer you to if you don't have insurance . Have you seen any doctor?

Avatar n tn At first it was just my thumb and middle finger, and now has spread to all my fingers and it then started changing the color of my fingernails..they are now an orange/pinkish color and I can hardly see the white moons of the nail. My symptoms are..Tingling/numbness as it starts building up the skin layers, then it starts cracking and bleeding, next day starts peeling..and then just starts all over again..So I peel every 2 or 3 days.
Avatar f tn I see worms/small white or black spots everywhere! In the fridge, bathrooms, my home desk, and work desk. I have used 50/50 bleach water on counters and floors. I try to use antibacterial wipes on everything, even my self. I also have had toe nail problems for a few years, now I am thinking that it was those bugs that caused it. Vicks helps a lot, so does the wipes. Wearing flip flops after I have cleaned my feet helps as the fresh air seems to help get them off.
Avatar f tn she's an extreme case, but we all started talking abut our little problems we hate and the little things we do..... I will check 3-4 times in the AM thatI've turned the coffee pot off. It's an OCD thing I guess. I have no problem telling people i pick the lint that builds up underneath my big toe nail. I do this on a weekly basis. I refuse to use the same bath towel all week long. It used to drive my ex hubby crazy and does my roomie now, she thinks its disgusting.

So back to surgery for a total wrist fusion.
Avatar m tn For sure is not BedBugs because in the Island i live, there has not been a case in many many years. We dont have bedbugs here.

Avatar n tn I believe this to be a virus. I've always had problems with canker sores in my tongue and right now fighting off a bacterial infection too. When your immune system is down the bumps are much more likely to appear. I agree that stress is a huge factor as well! Good luck all!
Avatar m tn I'm 17 years old, the typical high school teen.I have the compulsion of looking in the mirror and standing there for hours looking at every pore on my face then picking. Then it over turned to my whole body, its gotten way worst since I begun doing this since 1 1/2 years ago.
472570 tn?1274689487 They are tiny and hardly visible to the naked eye but they look like tiny white specks and at different stage they can actually be seen as tiny black specks in your bathroom or in your kitchen, especially around the sinks. They usually don't move so you think they're just specks of dirt except if you disturb them, they will actually hop. You can see them on your white sheets. Disturb them with your fingernail and watch them hop.

Avatar n tn Hi all - have not logged on for a while - EK has been dormat in Aus winter and system problems. The Urea cream I have used successfully for a while now is called DU’IT Tough Hands. It is made by a company called Orbis Australasia Pty Ltd – The product has 15% Urea cream plus Vitamin E and several other ingredients that seem to combine well. I apply it every night and after showering in the morning (both when EK is dormant and also when it is active).
Avatar f tn All of the docs say it is a coincidence that any of my problems started shortly after receiving the implant. I have sent blood in for the Melisa test, but wonder if a reaction will show being I was not able to refrain from using inhalers for five days. The implant has adhered to the bone and looks "perfect". I am ready to get it out and praying I can return to my normal level of activity. Is there anyone out there with some information that could help? Am I the only one????
Avatar n tn But I have this horrible bitter taste on my lips that just won't go away. Like when you use nail polish remover and then stick your finger in your mouth by accident... only I don't wear nail polish and haven't used any polish remover. No household cleaners either... It's just a really horrible bitter taste on my lips. Any clues???

Avatar n tn I had the same problems with my eyelids - ichy, swollen, dry, then the skin would just peel off - it was awful. I went to the doctor who sent me to the dermatologist. They said I was allergic to something but did not know what. I also have RLS (restless leg syndrome) and at night I would take Advil to help alleviate the symptoms. I realize now that sometimes I would take Aleve instead of the Advil and that is when my eyes would swell up and burn and itch.
Avatar n tn And I dn't believe it's Kundalini rising - it's not a sensation going up and down my spine. It's in a 1 inch radius in the same spot on my back. In any case, this posting has helped me because I now feel a little bit better that I'm not paranoid and making this up. I'll make sure I go see a doc.
Avatar m tn Yes i live near the shore and there are MANY kinds of mosquitos here. But the mosquitos, u see them, even do the hide in black clothing/threads and when the light are on.
Avatar n tn MS was ruled out after testing, but I was not diagnosed at that time, and the Neurologist thought my problems were in my head, and that I needed to see a counselor! :( Finally in 2007, I got the courage up again to go to another Neuologist for help, because my symptoms had worsened, and I was having difficulty walking (long term, extreme B6 toxicity side effect).
Avatar n tn Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair? It is located in the area where I shave daily. Any advice would be very appreciated!
