Common Questions and Answers about Skin face disorders


168246 tn?1212066854 i know that alot of people have different types of skin disorders with or without tx. do the bumps itch? ooze? are they in patches, flat or raised? where are they located? did you change any soap, lotions, detergents? hotels have been known to have bedbugs, so there are many scenarios to consider and being on vacation when you you noticed them may make it harder to determine what caused them since you would be using their soaps and detergents and whatnot. hope they go away!
Avatar n tn They are small dilated blood vessels present under the skin especially on the face. It can be due to environmental changes like sun or cold overexposure, skin trauma, overuse of steroids, acne rosacea or venous hypertension. I hope you are not using too much steroids on your face. Sclerotherapy and laser treatment are the two main treatment options. Please discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist and get it evaluated. The brown spots can be due to freckles or lentigo.
Avatar n tn aloe and lavender and calendula not getting the job done and I just don't want to thin the skin on my face w/ a cortisone cream. Thanks! (Btw, I'm riding with you through the end of August. Yes, I've extended.
Avatar n tn was told that I would eventually need a hip replacement due to cart. degeneration. I was prescribe Vioxx. During December of '99, I developed several eruptions on my face. I visited a Dermatologist and was diagnosed with Roscea. I was prescribed Monoxid. Finally, approximately 6 months ago, I began to have episodes of of sleepiness during the day. This became worse...also had symptoms of "feeling as if I was in a dream-like state". Neurologist suspected Narcolepsy.
Avatar n tn There is a pediatric gastroenterologist at Boston Children's Hospital who is wonderful. He does research and specializes in motility disorders. It sounds as if Boston wouldn't be too far to go (possibly closer than Pittsburgh). It may be worthwhile for you to contact him. E-mail me at ***@**** if you are interested.

Avatar n tn what could a burning sensation on my face under the skin mean for off and on for several years... where to seek help?
Avatar n tn good for the people who are, even though at some times they may be a little bitchy (sorry) Women are supposed to have curves, and bigger thighs (even though I absolutely hate it) B/c of our ability to have babys. The weight helps us carry the baby. Skin and bones aren't pretty no matter how much me or you 'falls in love' with them at first. The longer you starve yourself, the more weight your body needs to gain to become stable.
459853 tn?1283144114 It is also seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Very dry skin and disorders of thyroid gland all can precipitate a crawling sensation. The other possibility is Morgellons disease often mimics scabies. The disease is believed to be caused by weak immune systems in people that have contracted the tick-borne Lyme Disease at some point in their life. It can also be a fungal infection like Tinea corporis. Please discuss these possibilities with your doctor. Hope this helps.
7278805 tn?1389792223 Yours is a problem that will require direct, face-to-face, examination by a doctor skilled in the diagnosis of skin disorders such as yours (a Board-Certified Dermatologist) That the problem is limited to your face does, as you indicated, raise the possibility of a contact dermatitis. Infection (with some type of vermin) and acne (perhaps with secondary bacterial infection) would also be prime considerations. Any further speculation, on my part, would be inappropriate.
Avatar n tn In the vast majority of cases, the mites go unobserved, without any adverse symptoms, but in certain cases (usually related to a suppressed immune system, caused by stress or illness) mite populations can dramatically increase, resulting in a condition known as demodicosis, characterised by itching, inflammation and other skin disorders. Blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids) can also be caused by Demodex mites.
Avatar n tn Hi,, The reason for your itchy face could be an allergy or just dry sin. You could take OYC anti-histamines for it and initially apply calamine lotion.After the itch settles down you could regularly use a moisturizer with sun-screen and keep your face hydrated. Also drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day helps in keeping facial skin healthy.
Avatar f tn I also get very tense muscles and tingling on my skin sometimes. I therefore had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Recently however, in the last year my sinuses were causing more and more problems. I was put on antibiotics yet again. My IBS got much worse and I started noticing tingling up the right side of my face and felt pains in the back of my head. I started going to get answers and saw many different Dr.s including a Neurologist and an Endocrinologist.

7746659 tn?1393923237 Sounds like he has an irritated gut too. He needs to be on a bland food that is easily digested. Try cooking up some chicken (no skin) and rice and you could add some vegetable like shredded zucchini. Feed him small amounts 4-5 times a day because the stomach is not emptying fast enough and this also causes pain, possibly gas and bloating. Ask your Vet about giving a probiotic, especially since he was on antibiotics. Can be very hard to treat and various protocols out there.
Avatar n tn This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. Dark circles under the eyes are temporary and caused due to insomnia, smoking, a family history of dark circles, deficiency of vit K in diet, allergies like sinusitis and eczema, and adrenal gland disorders. Take rest adequately and eat healthy nutritious food containing lots of green vegetables.
Avatar f tn Hi, Just wondering if anyone else has had problems with hyperpigmentation of the skin on the face (Melasma)? I have had problems with dark pigmented areas on my face for 10+ years, despite wearing sunscreen religously. However, when researching the hyperpigmentation, I found that a number of people with this problem also have thyroid disorders. I'd love to get some feedback to give to my Endocrinologist.
1523516 tn?1330047857 The strange thing is this is not a red rash, it is clear or skin colored tiny bumps on my face. The first year our church was doing an outdorr yardsale and it was super hot outside. I was out there for about 10-15 minutes and then I felt my skin tightening and then felt all these bumps on my chin and near my mouth. It ended up from my mouth up both sides on my cheeks. At that time it appeared I had sunburn, people that I asked about it said it kjust looked like sunburn.
Avatar n tn It is also seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Very dry skin and disorders of thyroid gland all can precipitate a crawling sensation. Another possibility is Morgellons disease, especially if you had Lyme’s disease in the past. The exact mechanism by which the crawling sensation is produced in these patients is not known. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Is it a pimple that simply does not go away, if not, what could cause this spot? Second, are there any skin disorders or features that show a rapid change when exposed to the sun?
Avatar m tn I scratch my skin till it bleads and it looks like a big graze on my leg/arm. I can pick my skin for hours and hours, i pick the skin on my face,neck, back, legs, arms and scalp. I know i'm usually looking for spots that don't exist but when i pick i have a feeling that i want to get rid of any dirt or yukkiness under my skin, i have a feeling of disgust with it. I even do it to my partner sometimes, which is awful!
Avatar f tn they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin. i blush very easily and when i get hot my face turns ruddy. but they just do not know what this specific area on my nose is being caused by so here i sit w/ more bandages and more of my nose shaved off. i am sorry about not having insurance and having to worry through this alone. I will post if I find anything.
Avatar f tn Hello, These tingling sensations can be due to parasthesia skin. They are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidism. They can also be due to vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition. Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the tingling is gone or not. In case the symptoms persist then consult a neurologist as it can be due to some neurological disorder.
Avatar f tn Does anyone with this condition experience very dry face skin and face pain as well as mouth and eye dryness? My mouth is so dry I experience a burning sensation of the tongue. My face is so dry it hurts - tried all kinds of creams and it only makes my face skin feel tighter. Did having the operation make this dry skin condition go away.
Avatar n tn // You should have patience and trust your doctor for some time and then make a decision as to the need to change or revision of therapy. Hope this helped. Let me know if you may need any more information.
