Common Questions and Answers about Red rash skin cancer


Avatar n tn After developing total body rashes after using Septra and Minocyline they did another biopsy and discovered non-small cell lung cancer(Stage 3) He has begun chemotherapy (gemzar and paraplatin) which has slightly improved the rash but it remains. His skin is very dry and these bumps and patches of red scaly skin, though not itchy, are a great source of frustration for him. Can you recommend any therapy, external and/or internal that could help with this? The oncologist has no suggestions.
Avatar m tn I have a red rash on the shaft of the penis under the foreskin. This red area now goes almost all the way around. I am afraid that I didn't take this seiously enough until now as it has been over a year since I first noticed it. I have tried hydrocortisone creams, tinactin and other yeast cream, also some cream with tea tree oil. Now I am feeling rather terrified, I thought for it to be cancer it has to be bumpy, but after reading I don't think it does.
Avatar f tn The disease can cause a low-grade fever, headache, sore throat before the appearance of rash. The earliest specific sign of the disease is often bright red cheeks thus called slapped cheeks disease. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 16 years old, and I have this red dot-rash on my left breast. It doesn't itch, and there's nothing abnormal about the breast at all, it's just there. I believe I've had it since I was around 9 or 10 years old, but I never really paid any attention to it. And now it kind of worries me...Does anyone have any advice to help me?
Avatar f tn The last node that was removed had already invaded the skin/area. The red rash appeared within 3-4 weeks, mainly as red circular areas in the surgery site. The red rash quickly spread to cover 1/2 of her chest wall. The Xeloda initially seemed to help, making the rash "faint". However, it is now "active" again and beginning to harden in the surgery site area. I know this probably means it is spreading to deeper layers and not good.
Avatar f tn I've tried lotion and foam prescribed from the doctor. I don't have dry skin-it's very oily skin. I was diagnosed with breast cancer on April 23, 2010 and am currently in remission. Nothing seems to be related to that and I'm desperatley wanting some good advice. Please HELP!!

Avatar m tn Other than that Bowen’s disease can cause a red patch and this is an early form of skin cancer. Please consult a PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral to a skin specialist. Take care!

Avatar f tn - Signs and Symptoms of Skin Cancer Most people are alerted to the possibility that they have skin cancer because they notice a difference in the appearance of their skin. Such an occurrence may take the form of a spot, sore, or mole with a changeable size, shape, color, or "feel.
Avatar n tn You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps.For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). These dry rashes can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin.
Avatar n tn Skin cancer is usually a result of too much exposure to the sun. While skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, many types are both preventable and treatable. I think you should concern with the skin cancer specialist to treat and prevent your skin cancer.
Avatar n tn Hi Dr., I have a red pinkish, Non Ichy rash on the head of my penis in which I just noticed one morning. I figured it was just go away but it has not and its been about 3 weeks. Its about 1/2 inch in size and scaly. I am starting to get worried about what it is. Thanks for your response.
Avatar n tn I've had a flat red "dot like" rash that comes and goes. It is on different parts of my body or the whole body and changes areas throughout the day! Sometimes it's light in color and other times they're very red. Though they made fade at times, it NEVER goes totally away. I've been tested by an allergist, a family doctor, and seen by a dermatologist that refered me to the allergist. No one has any idea what this is.
Avatar n tn At first I freaked out thinking I might have skin cancer or something. But they aren't itchy or sore and my health is normal. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn For me its starts at nuts and goes above scrotum and is like a white/slight red rash (dry skin type area) and only itches after intercourse.
Avatar f tn Hello, Since the red rash is around mole, so it can be due to contact dermatitis, allergic reaction or heat rash. Take some Benadryl after consulting your doctor, use mild soaps like Dove and apply some calamine lotion on the rash. Also wear cotton clothes. If however you notice changes in the mole's color, height, size or shape, you should have a dermatologist evaluate it. You also should have it checked if it bleeds, oozes, itches, appear scaly, or become tender or painful.
Avatar m tn but at the same time i tried to look up my symtoms online and i saw a photo of somebodys hand and it looks almost exactly like mines and it was skin cancer which actually worried me alot .....i am Scheduled to see the dermatologist Tomorrow To See Whats going on with my skin .....Any Suggestions On what It May Be?
Avatar n tn Today I discovered that there is a red rash that goes all around my anus. It burns quite a bit and I also noticed that it is red around my genitals but not burning just a slight itching (which was there before this started due to an external yeast infection). Unfortunately, I have been dealing with an external yeast infection for quite a while. I was at the doctors quite a few times and the last time I went she said just keep it clean and dry.
Avatar f tn It's not raised or anything, and looks like it's just red right under the skin surface, almost like a bruise. I have health insurance but a $5000 deductible, so I can't afford to go from dr to dr until I get the right one that might be able to tell me what's wrong with me. Maybe you could advise me what direction I need to go? Also, the rash is not irritating, doesn't itch or anything, just is red. Thanks!
Avatar f tn The final doctor was getting ready to do a skin scraping to see if it was a type of skin cancer when another doctor came in and recognized it at SCABIES. She had little bugs ubder her skin for over a year!!!! None of my other family members had caught it even though it is contagious. It took a ton of Docs to discover this pretty common thing. Pretty gross.... Id def get a 2nd or 3rd opinion if your diagnosis doesnt match up with your symptoms. Good Luck!
Avatar f tn Hope this is the right section, I just have questions to try to make myself understand some things better perhaps. Is there an easy way to tell if a rash is cancer? I have a rash on the aereola (though mine are rather large...) Though I think it may be from the heat. (There's heat rash under my boobs X.X) How many days should I wait to see if it goes away? Does a cancerous rash "go away"? (IE: Turn back to skin color and not be red, I guess.
Avatar n tn I have a red circular rash which does not appear to be ring worm. It is not scaly or itchy but starts as a small red circle and then widens out.
