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 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 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 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 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 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 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?
Avatar f tn t red though , just skin colored). Do you girls know what this is? is it still considered a newborn rash if its on the legs and arms? (not on the torso though) I'm unhappy, my poor baby!
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 n tn I have had a "rash" that started on my chin, and has now spread across my face and into my ears. It is very itchy and has watery blisters that dry up and flake off (my skin is very red around this area). I've seen my GP and a dermotologist to no avail. Anyone have any suggetions?
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?
Avatar n tn i scratched them a lot. the next day i have what appears to be a red flat rash on both sides of my scrotum. I am 27 years old and married. The itching has been worse in the evening and early morning. I am typically good with hygiene i.e showering daily until recently since my wife and i have a newborn daughter and time has not allowed for much time other than to take care of her. the rash has never produced anything "pimple like" or anything of the sort.
Avatar n tn I have had a rash for several years on my face (across nose and cheeks) as well as on my chest (neckline). A doctor told me that it was tinea versicolor. In looking at the images on the net of tinea, I do have spots of it but it is not what the rash on my chest and face is. The rest of the rash is not circular and does not respond to any of the creams or medications given to me. This rash is just a general redness.
Avatar m tn I have had this rash on my face for some time. I'd say 18 months, to 2 years. Symptoms: I have this red rash (as seen in the picture) that sometimes peels, and on rare occasions itches. It often becomes sore if I wash it with any kind of soap. If I just leave it alone most of the skin appears smooth, but in the crease on the side of my nose dead skin flakes off. Peeling rarely happens anywhere else. It use to be just on the side, and end of my nose.
