Avatar n tn The rash on the scalp get red and tender at times with intense itching. No discharge. The rash on the arms is an area of about 5 inches on the same place on each arm. Intense itching and feels like something biting every once and awhile. No discharge.
Avatar n tn It usually causes a rash made up of circular patches with raised, red edges that resemble worms. The rash spreads from these edges, often leaving the center clear, giving it a ring shape. Topical antifungal drugs containing miconazole (Daktarin, Micatin & Monistat), clotrimazole (Canesten, Hydrozole), terbinafine (Lamisil), butenafine and tolnaftate (Tinactin), many available without a prescription, are used to clear up the infection.

Avatar n tn For the last year I have had a red rash on the side of my nose (one side only) and cheek. I have been to two different dermatologists who both gave me something different to use. This time around I was given ketoconazole and if I use it for a couple of nights it seems to go away only to re-appear a few days later. Now it gets flaky and itches and if I scratch it it burns.
Avatar m tn Psoriatic rash may involve the scalp and they may present with some patches of scales. There are cases of psoriasis which do not present with the scales. As for seborrheic dermatitis, they may present with some dryness and flaking of the scalp. The flakes of skin are greasy and yellowish. Do these apply to your case?
Avatar f tn Also I had terrible nipping feelings in my scalp and a red creeping rash behind both ears. The doc gave me itracnazole and then terbinafine and also ketaconazole shampoo. (not that he definitely diagnosed a fungal infection - I think I suggested it and he went along with the idea, basically I think the family doctors just guess). I also did not mention that my mum is going to through very similar symptoms.
Avatar f tn What causes a red, itchy pimple-like rash on scalp with subsequent hair loss? I have been treated with Ketokonazole shampoo, steroid liquid applied to scalp, chemical- and fragrance-free shampoo and conditioner (Free & Clear), stopped coloring my hair, etc. and so far nothing has taken this away. I am now losing my hair! Can anyone help me?
Avatar n tn I discoverd a couple of days ago a red rash on my neck. It itches like crazy. The back of my neck, around my hair line, has been itching for months. I have always just assumed it was dry skin, or my scalp was dry. There are like 6 different spots on my neck. I am wondering if it is Psoriasis? If anyone has any information, its greatly appriciated.
1815939 tn?1377991799 What would be best to use on it? I am not excited about putting that greasy fluocinomide ointment on it. I already use very mild organic herbal shampoo. I could probably live with it if it did not get worse at night and itch like crazy, just like the other hot spots on my legs and ankles. I thought maybe someone on the forum has found a good remedy for Riba rash on the scalp.
Avatar n tn Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus. Initially, a primary plaque, called a herald patch, is seen.
Avatar m tn Approximately 9 days after first and 4 days after second exposure I developed a solid red rash on the tip of my penis. It is irritated and red, not itchy. It flares up after ejaculation and urination. I still have the rash today, 5 months later. Not really better or worse. I have undergone several tests and taken the following medications.
Avatar m tn flare ups this time of year red around cheeks and nose and red patches on forehead running into my scalp need help
Avatar m tn has your 'rash' spread, or is it localized? did it start out as one 'red area' and then spread? are you allergic to anything, have you changed laundry soaps, bathing soaps, is the rash painful, or just 'itchy'? do the areas 'leak' and if so, what is the 'color' of the drainage? if there is 'drainage' does it have an odor? if so ,what is it...
Avatar n tn Some months ago I got a rash on my inner wrist which by now has completely cleared up. The rash on the scalp and penis remain. The penis end his quite red and has a sort of short of dry shrivelled appearance as if the surface skin has lost some of its elasticity. On close inspection there seems red nodules beneath the surface. The overall picture looks as if the penis tip has been dipped in a strong solution of salt and is beginning to crystalize.
Avatar m tn No, HIV can not be transmitted through skin to skin contact, no way
Avatar n tn The rash is elevated, red, not painful and it would seem winter is when it acts up. Its usually gone by summer time. I also get the same rash behind my right ear. I've been using betamethasone on both my elbow rash and behind right ear rash on it and it's clearing up now. I can't for the life of me figure out what I might be allergic to.
Avatar n tn Then a month ago i noticed a rash appearing on my chest,my shoulders,my stomach,the tops of my thighs and my lower back along with another patch of dry,red skin on my left hip. All the rash covered areas do become itchy if not moisturised but this does not seem to be the case of dry skin as the redness still persists. I have changed my clothes detergent and soaps etc but nothing seems to work.
Avatar f tn an inflammatory rash of uncertain cause that is commonly seen on the scalp, behind the ears and in the skin folds. -thrush (candida): this infection is probably the most common. -contact allergy: constituents of skincare products. Penile yeast infections can present as red dots on the glans. This can be treated with anti-fungal medications like Monistat applied on the affected areas.
Avatar f tn He has on the scalp of the back of the head a circle of red rash looking spots ...almost on the crown of his head...should i be worried?
Avatar m tn I also get red blotches on my scalp and the back of my neck. My LLMD said the blotches on my neck looked like a Babesia rash. Oddly, a lot of my rashes either only first appeared, or greatly worsened, when I started antibiotics. I never had a bulls eye, though.
Avatar m tn I just want to add that the rash is at least twice as red as the one you see in the picture above.
Avatar n tn Seen several doctors in the past 8 months and no one can tell me what I have. At the same time this rash appeared so did psorisis on my scalp. The look like two different things but seem to progress at the same time. Help! This discussion is related to <a href=''>itchy rash on chest, stomach, breast has been spreading</a>.
Avatar f tn About 1 week ago i started to get a small rash on my testicle. Since then ive had numerous red rashes/ bumps in various places including my scalp, hand, inside my ear, in my bellybutton. Some have already disapeared . The ones on my scalp have been itchy. Ive also had a dull pain in my right testicle which sometimes spread to my lymph node in my crotch. It also sometimes spreads to the left side, but not often. I can only imagin herpes? Possible some sort of bug biting my scalp aswell???
Avatar m tn (hives, wheals, confluent hives, little red bumps, big red bumps, flat red spots, large red/purple spots, tiny red spots, tiny bumps, skin cracks and fissures, eczema type lesions, psoriasis type lesions, weeping lesions, and more) The over the counter medications were useless.
Avatar n tn It is one large patch, not a collection of patches, with a faint red definate outline- inside the outline the main body of the rash itself is very slightly red, and a slightly darker tint of my natural skin colour- It almost looks like a damp stain in structure- and it's spreading about an inch every week and a half or so. The red outer line does disappear into my pubic hair but from what I can tell does not effect / originate from my genitals.
