646779 tn?1281996041 Hi, I have a photo of my baby who is 4 weeks old. She has a rash on her face, she's had it for the last two weeks. I've been told by my health visitor that it is very common among newborn babies and is nothing to worry about. Apparantly it is common because newborn babies can't regulate certain functions to do with glands at this age very well, so the result is a spotty face lasting a few weeks.
Avatar f tn I have an allergy to certain foods but have never had a reaction to a face wash. What can I do to get rid of this rash and prevent it from coming back??
Avatar n tn I have a burning rash on the right side of my face. I don't know if I got too close to something yard related - I was weeding my garden the other day (3 days ago, itching started two days ago...). It doesn't itch so much as it is BURNING on my face. It's a raised red rash covered half my face, and going up to my ear. I've tried Aveeno creme, Caladryl, Neutrogena creme, and Gold Bond. All of them seem to make it burn even more and I can't stand the heat generating.
Avatar f tn Little pimples on a baby's face is usually caused by what you eat if you're breastfeeding. Like tomatoes, pineapple, pickles etc. My mother swore that the best and natural way to get rid of it is to use the baby's first morning pee nappy, wipe it in the baby's face, (disgusting I know but works) let it dry and then wipe it off again with a washcloth.
Avatar n tn I noticed yesterday that my child had red blotchy areas on his cheeks when we came in from getting out of the car. He also had areas that looked like a fresh moskito bite on his knuckles of his hands and he was scratching them. Then an area on his ankle too. After about an hour this all went away. No rash on arms, hands other than knuckle area, truck or legs. Today he went outside again today from one house to another and the rash has come up again. What could this be.
Avatar n tn For the last 3 weeks I've had this rash coming and going on my face, when it flares up it feels really hot. In the first week of it my throat felt like it was burning and one of my eyes was slightly red with a hot feeling to it also. These 2 symptoms have passed but the rash has not gone. I have stopped using hair products ie. hairspray etc and just use a mild shampoo/conditioner, there is also a feeling of hotness to the back of my neck.
Avatar f tn For the last year I have been having problems with getting this blistery rash round my nose and down the crease of by face. Sometimes it shows up on my chin. I am 45 years old and it seems like it is the worst when I drink a soda or tea or even have chocolate. It starts out as a bump then turns into a blister. It often feels like they go up inside my nose. They are filled with clear liquid. It gets really bad sometimes where I don't want to leave the house.
Avatar n tn I broke out in a rash on my face in April. It seems to be spreading... It's burning and itching. My allergies have been pretty bad lately so I've been taking Zyrtec. I'm wondering if this is a reaction to the Zyrtec or if the Zyrtec helps it calm down. It does calm down then "flare" back up. It's starting to look horrible. I've never had skin problems and Im embarrassed to go in public. Doctor doesn't seem to know exactly what it is.
Avatar n tn I was treated for graves disease several years ago and have since been taking synthroid. the problem is in the last month or two, i have been suffering from an unsightly rash on my face which won't go away. I cannot figure out what is causing it and i suspect it may be related to my thyroid condition. i do not think it has to do with any other conditions other than my thyroid problem. has anyone experienced the same type of problem with rashes?? what can i do to get rid of it??
Avatar n tn However, they are not on my neck. What can I do to help alleviate this? With the numerous ingredients listed on face products now, is there any way to tell which ingredient may be causing this reaction so I can avoid it in the future? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Can syphillis Rash only be on face? Can rash be due to any other std?
189269 tn?1189755825 If I go back to bed they get worse...so try to move around. Rash is subsiding on neck and almost gone on face...keep piling the lotion and moisturizers on. Hang in there we will eventually beat this!
Avatar n tn It sound like an allergic reaction to something, what have you taken or been in contact recently ? is there any bite marks ? You should go to the E.R. right away.
Avatar f tn So after going to the doctor last Friday she told me that what she had in the face was in fact a newborn rash and that a lot of babies had it and it was going to disappear when she was around 6 weeks. I was so relieved cause I was starting to think she had a milk allergy. Anyways now I just realized she has cradle cap! in her eyebrows and ears (and just a liiiittle in her head, like on the front of it). Does anyone knows how to get rid of those yellow crusty thingies?
459853 tn?1283140514 Even after daily hair washing, the flaky skin is still there, and on my face. I have also noticed now what looks like pencil erase sized patches of rash (though not red) and dry skin. Any help diagnosing this or any suggestions would be extremely appreciated!!!!
Avatar f tn Hello good evening, I have a question I recently developed a rash that is red and spreading on my left side of my face. The rash started with 2 bumps on the left side of my face and started spreading down. It looks as if I have cystic acne but I’m sure it’s not acne, I never had acne in my teen years. And this sort of developed after going to Sephora and letting a makeup artist try on a foundation on my face. I had never had this type of issue though? Could it had been the make up I tryed on ?
Avatar n tn If you have any history of allergies, any recent application of creams or lotions on the face, then this may be case of allergic contact dermatitis. A microscopic valuation of the scales or flakes may be able to help ascertain the diagnosis. A KOH examination may help ascertain if a fungal infection is present. Have you tried using topical corticosteroids on the area?
176741 tn?1295233989 My son is 21 and has had a rash on face, around his mouth, for nearly a month now. It appeared the week after he suffered through a form of the coxsackie (sp?) virus. His ped said the rash was just an 'irritation' and unrelated to the other virus. She said to put Aquaphor on it a couple times a day and it would go away. Nope. Got worse. His allergist says it is not an allergic rash. He said it looked to him like contact dermititis and said to put hydrocortisone on it.
11970398 tn?1443134602 My daughter as a new born had it on her face. You can try cornstarch to help get rid of it. My mother in law told me about this and it worked every time. Just don't pick at it or anything. Gently rub the corn starch on the bump and leave it be. You don't need to rub it in, just enough to cover the area.
Avatar f tn Pardon? Please explain, I don't understand the link between a dark rash on my face and parasites. How would I get these diagnosed? How would they be treated? What part of my question made you think of parasites? Thanks for thinking outside the box, even if you shocked me!
Avatar m tn I have an itchy rash on my face. At first I thought it might some sort of bite until they started popping up all over. My other family members do not have any type of bites either. They are itchy and then after a day or too become extremely dry. I had a few pop up on my arms yesterday too. Could this be hives?
