Skin infection dark

Common Questions and Answers about Skin infection dark


Avatar f tn Dark scaly spots on the skin can be due to a localized skin infection, most commonly bacterial or yeast, less commonly ringworm/fungal infection or demodex mange mites. The increased licking (which is the way dogs scratch themselves when they are itchy), suggests infection is causing itch. The skin increases pigment as a protective response due to the inflammation.
Avatar f tn When the stubble grows back in, it may curl, growing back underneath the skin and causing an irritated bump. Consult your doctor about your ingrown hairs, and if he approves, you can use home remedies to treat them. Washcloth Rub Prep your vaginal area for shaving by gently rubbing the skin with a washcloth, recommends the Mayo Clinic. To help soften ingrown hairs and get them to stand up straight, wet a washcloth with warm water.
Avatar f tn Hi and thanks for using the forum. The redness around the anus is not uncommon and is not a sign of infection. If you are having pain, swelling, or drainage- these would be symptoms of infection. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn This summer I thought I had acne, but I just went to the Doctor and I have a staph infection on my face. I have been on antibiotics for the last five months and have taken various forms of antibiotics(Keflex, doxycycline, minocycline, tetracycline) and I was wondering how long does it take for the blisters to completely stop?
Avatar n tn From your post, it seems that the dark spots on your inner thigh and under your breast are post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Perhaps you had a skin infection like a fungal infection on those areas. Fungal infection is common in areas with moist skin like the inguinal or axillary area, or the area under the breasts. I think you need to consult your dermatologist for evaluation. You should also keep those areas you mentioned dry. Take care.
Avatar n tn ve had a passing fever last week for one day. I also have very dark urine, all day long fatigue and a yellow skin for 2 days. Thank you.
Avatar n tn It is a common skin infection caused by the yeast Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates. If the lesions turn itchy, painful, dark or starts having a burning sensation then please get an evaluation done from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn A million things have been running thru my mind in relation to the dark spots. Could it possible be a strain of herpes or staph infection? I even think maybe its some type of skin cancer. I have an upcoming appt scheduled with an african american derm dr who specializes in skin of color. Hopefully I can get some answers to what is going on with my skin because as of now I haven gotten any.

Avatar f tn My two year old Rhodesian Ridgeback (male, castrated), who has always been healthy and never suffered from any skin problems seems to have developed dark patches of skin under the white fur on his chest. Seems to only be under the while bits of his coat. The patches are not angry irritated or raised, just darker, black or brown. The colour of the hair has not changed and remains white. Is this a common occurance?
Avatar n tn i have small dark buttons that itches and spreads on my skin. I have taken Terbisil? What else can i take or what do you suppose it is? The doctor says it maybe a fungi infection.
Avatar f tn If so yes that happens a lot esp depending on your natural skin tone.. If your tan to dark the excess skin will bunch up basically making you look darker once its gone and your toned up you will get your beautiful radiance color back .. Pregnant with my second ^.
Avatar n tn Hi, This is a condidtion called Hyperkeratosis.Hyperkeratosis is a thickening of the skin that occurs in women with brown skin. It is due to excessive accumulation of keratin in the outer layers of the skin. Thickening of the skin protects it against rubbing, pressure and irritation. The majority of the forms of hyperkeratosis are painless. Although hyperkeratosis may occur anywhere on the skin, there are several areas that are typically involved.
Avatar f tn Sounds like you have a few skin concerns- have you been tested for any thryoid issues or given a reason for the hair growth? I have a feeling the skin conditions may be pointing to something else going on that's not skin related, but it would be better to go ahead to a doctor (you may consider starting by going back to the dermatologist or going to your PCP), and digging for more answers with them.

18471869 tn?1469397785 Lips have become dark and scabby when dry for about 5-7 days now. I have medicated lip balm and HPlecern and been using for about a week. When I am out in sun and for get to put chapstick with spf my lips are dry and itchy for the next few days, howerever this time it has become dark and scabby on top and bottom lips in the center. I played Volleyball for a couple hours about 2 weeks ago. So I'm thinking this isn't related to being in the sun.
Avatar n tn I have dark brown/black round circle patches over my arms and elbows and more of them keep growing around that area and sometimes get bigger over time. what could this be?
Avatar m tn The dark discoloration on the back is due to pityriasis versicolor which is a sort of fungal infection and Nizoral is an antifungal used for it. It is a common skin infection caused by the yeast Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates. If the symptoms persist then oral antifungals may be needed.

Avatar n tn hi, i have dark brown skin and in the past year i have noticed a dark patch of skin appearing on my skin. This patch is much darker than the surrounding skin and takes the shape of a band which includes my temple on each side and my forehead. i started to notice this condition a few months after i got eczema on my temples and forehead. i have similar dark patches on my body where i have had bad eczema and i was wondering if these would go away too.
