Common Questions and Answers about Skin infection fever


282804 tn?1236837191 The following symptoms have been approved and agreed upon by the powers that be. What I want to know is why fever is not among them. I had a low grade fever off & on for a month last time and I knew it was back when my fever hit 102 for a week and a half at the end of August. Gilda talked about her fevers in her book. Has anyone else had this as a symptom?

Avatar f tn But you are within range of normal, I do believe, and the body has a way of self-regulating itself, as in you getting red-faced, that's the blood vessels near the skin releasing some heat to get your body core temp back down where it should be, which may be accompanied by sweating, which is same thing. If you get coolish, you'll begin to shiver, or you'll go put on a bathrobe or sweater, because you're feeling too cold.
647391 tn?1275020233 How do you know when you have a skin infection? Is it possible to have a skin infection and not a fever? I have been dealing with a lot of sweats, but no fever. Part of that could be that I have to wear a cervical collar because of neck fusion surgery a week and a half ago. THis incision is at the base of my neck.
Avatar n tn Other possibilities are viral fevers, dengue, typhoid, malaria, and H1N1 infection. It can be due to measles, chicken pox, or due to group A streptococcal infection. However, all these cause at least mild fever. Please ask them to consult another doctor regarding this. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn why do I get an itchy skin infection on my breast when I get a chest infection?
Avatar m tn The term eczema is broadly applied to a range of persistent skin conditions. These include dryness and recurring skin rashes which are characterized by one or more of these symptoms: redness, skin edema (swelling), itching and dryness, crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing, or bleeding. Atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis) is believed to have a hereditary component, and often runs in families whose members also have hay fever and asthma.
Avatar n tn Sometimes when you scratch the skin, you get a staph infection because of bacteria under your fingernails. You need antiobiotics for that kind of infection. Go to the doctor, get a note from him/her and present it to your employer.
Avatar f tn The last stage of color change is when the skin appears to be dark red or purple. The infection can cause the skin to feel warm and may also cause it to swell. As the infection invades the tissue, inflammation occurs. Inflammation on the skin can be painful because the tissue is swelling. The bacteria that is infecting the skin often produces a gas around the swollen area. When the skin is touched or pressed on, the skin may dry out or crack.
Avatar f tn It was slightly red but seemed to heal well. Three days ago she started not to feel well.She is running a fever and had alot of pain under her arm and mastectomy scar.No swelling.She woke up this morning and the area around her scar was pink and alittle tender. The doctors don't know what it is.. Her blood work is normal,but she is running a fever. They gave her antibiotics and she must return tomorrow.Here is my question.
Avatar f tn Having a swelling with dry skin over it does not say that it is due to infection. In infection the skin over the swelling would be tensed, red, and warm to touch. Yes, you are right in thinking that if you have swelling then it would be mean that any treatment would fail. This could be a localized swelling due to extravasations of fluid from inflammatory response around. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.
Avatar n tn Aside from the burning sensation and red spots, are there other symptoms present like itchiness or fever? Skin rashes or lesions could be due to a variety of conditions including irritation, infection and skin diseases. If it persists, it is best that you have it directly examined by your doctor for proper evaluation. Direct clinical examination is essential for diagnosis. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Rheumatic fever is an inflammatory disease that may develop two to three weeks after a Group A streptococcal infection (such as strep throat or scarlet fever). It is believed to be caused by antibody cross-reactivity and can involve the heart, joints, skin, and brain. Acute rheumatic fever commonly appears in children ages 5 through 15. Anti streptolysin O titre, ASOT is not the only criteria for diagnosis, it is a minor criteria.
Avatar m tn The next day my sperm came out more chunky and i had a hard time pushing out my urine, which i believe is a urinary trac infection from mixing germs(after about 1 week i could pee normally and sperm came out fine.). Anyway i had a burning pain on the head of my penis as well, this started about a week after sex. It would only burn when i touched it and i noticed a small 2mm size semi-circlular line which almost looked like a piece of skin was missing and was lighter that the rest of my head.
Avatar f tn i have fever more than 8 fever is fever comes and goes all the day..sometimes i feel very cold..and the other time very very hot..what should i do?
Avatar n tn 15 days back his Dr.gave NSAID tab (etrocoxib) and the fever stopped.But when he stopped the NSAID tablet fever has again come.He lost weight 6-7 kgs initially but now he maintains his weight.He has High BP and under went Thyroid operation 8 years back and he takes regular medication for both.He also had Cataract surgery on his left eye 6 months back. Can anyone please guide how to treat him for possible cure.
Avatar f tn Could of he had a high fever and I did notice? Could the fever come and go? Can you have scarlet fever with no fever? How long can you have scarlet fever before it turns into rheumatic fever?
Avatar n tn A few days into this I developed a fever at about 101, which left the next day after taking some tylenol. The bumps were never really itchy. I was convinced it was folliculitis but the fever threw me off. I'm a little concerned it might be herpes, but wouldn't the first outbreak take place on the penis? And wouldn't it have been incredibly painful?
Avatar n tn I agree. It sounds like your immune system is fighting an infection. Since many links aren't allowed, I sent you a link on "rashes accompanied by a fever" that may be helpful to you. Check your inbox (located to the upper right hand corner of your screen), if you would like this website address.
Avatar m tn If this was herpes, would I have lesions in these areas and would I have had them at the same time along with the fever? or would they come after the fever? Could this be skin irritation from the neopsporin, cortizone or tinactiin spray? I'm sure it could also be stress and anxiety which I have a lot of right now. Appreciate your opinions.
Avatar n tn hi 2 weeks ago i had unprotected fellatio performed on me, and now for the past 5 days after two weeks, am having high fever with loose stools, and there's a lot of reddening on my skin on my chest area.

Avatar n tn She gets headaches and fatigue with the fevers. She often gets a 'gurgly belly' with the fever. She recently had a severe fever and fatigue response to a steriod treatment she received (4 days in bed and/or the shower). I dont know how to help her. She hasnt had a 'family doctor' to watch and diagnose any issues (she goes to Kaiser). How do we find what's up?
Avatar m tn 2 weeks later I had a small skin rash my doctor diagnosed as contact dermititis on my wrist. 3 weeks later I had a fungal skin infection on my butt/tops of my legs. I also had a bad sunburn in this area which I heard can attribute to this. I have had no fever or swollen nodes that I know of. I had a bump/sore under my tongue which my Dr. attributed to my anxiety of this situation. I'm terrible scared....especially since the rashes have shown up. I've never had rash problems before.
Avatar f tn Boil or furuncle is a skin disease caused by the infection of hair follicles, thus resulting in the localized accumulation of pus and dead tissue. The symptoms of boils are red, pus-filled lumps that are tender, warm, and/or painful. A yellow or white point at the center of the lump can be seen when the boil is ready to drain or discharge pus. Boils are generally caused by an infection of the hair follicles by Staphylococcus aureus, a strain of bacterium that normally lives on the skin surface.
