Skin infection leg

Common Questions and Answers about Skin infection leg


Avatar n tn I have a terrible infection on the rear lower right leg. It is red above, around and below the actal site of the infection. My lower leg, ankle and foot are blown up like a balloon. Do you think I will need hospitalization for mega antibiotics or will taking them by mouth do? I'm seeing a dermatologist tomorrow but want to be prepared.
Avatar f tn The surgeon said that the infection is likely to come back in which case all the metal in my leg will have to be removed. The skin over the infection site has been scaley and peeling since the infection first started and now There is swelling, almost like a blister in the exact same spot. Does this mean the infection is back? I had been considering some of my options to help repair my ankle but if it is infected none of them will be possible. Honestly I am scared out of my mind.
Avatar m tn About a week ago my skin on my upper inner thigh on 1 leg and leg/abdomen crease areas and upper inner arm (1 arm) bagan having a burning sensation, like a sunburn, that hurts when touched and sometimes when not touched. A few days prior, I attempted to remove a freckle that I thought was a tick and this problem seems to have started after this attempted removal occurred (not sure if the two are related, but I wanted to mention nonetheless).

Avatar m tn For the last 7 years or so I have had a burning, itching sore on the outside of my bottom leg. I have been to a dermatoligist several times and can't get it under control. The sore is about 2 by 4 inches. And for the last year I have started developing one on the right leg same location. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn staph is usually a skin infection not an internal infection...... what i want to know is how this happenend to me? i am a pediatric er nurse and i have never heard of all this from a routine procedure....
Avatar m tn Then another week after that it started creeping up my leg. Now I have these scabs all over. It seems the scabing is mostly around areas where my clothes touch. For instance the top of my socks is a bad area. Any idea what this could be?
Avatar f tn Okay I have been waking up with these things on my legs that look like a possible bite. At first I thought it was a bite because I had gone hiking and then the day after I woke up itching what I thought was a mosquito bite. Well after i looked closer I noticed it had a white head on it. After popping the white head it stopped itching.
Avatar f tn A few days later, I noticed that the skin around the burn was still warm to the touch (not burning hot but definitely warmer than the rest of my skin) and that I still had a low-grade fever (ranging from 99.0-99.9). Also, I noticed that my entire body felt like it was constantly trembling and that my pulse was constantly rapid. I went back to the doctor and he took a culture and gave me bactroban to put on the burn until the results come back.
Avatar m tn what can cause blisters to appear on my skin. mostly lower leg and fee . I am diabetic and had horrible itchy skin all over but dry and red on my legs .I had a appointment where they took a biopiosy with no conclusive results. I have the itch under control with steroid cream but can not stop the blisters.
Avatar n tn I have a rash on arms, insides leg,lower back, and hands, I am afraid could be related to acute hiv rash.Can you help? This discussion is related to <a href=''>Yeast infection rash</a>.
Avatar m tn It is not possible to catch HIV from this kind of exposure. Condoms work, and skin contact doesn't transmit the virus. And a rash on your partner's leg is not a likely sign s/he has HIV. Your sore throat probalby is just a common cold. But if you remain worried, visit a doctor or clinic and follow their advice about HIV testing. In the future, a single condom is safer than double. Wearing 2 condoms increases the risk that both will break. Good luck and Happy New Year.
Avatar f tn cellulitis an infection under the skin in soft tissue cuased when bactiria gets under skin and spreads in or under the skin can cause warmth pain and redness.
Avatar f tn So i got a positive herps test back in February and beenwith my bf for over 3yr neither of us have had outbreaks but now he has what looks like skin tags between his balls nd leg is that a type of breakout????
Avatar f tn Oh,and no doctor told you it could be a combination of herpes and scabies!!! Scabies is a parasitic infection and herpes is a viral infection. The two have NOTHING to do with one another. Also, if you saw a doctor and they sispected scabies, you would have been treated. PLEASE don't insult my (our) intelligence.
Avatar f tn Hi! I went to the doctor Monday, we are still waiting on the results from the culture he did but he is pretty positive I have genital herpes. I'm having some pretty weird leg pain it pretty much feels like my legs are sunburned my skin all over my legs is very tender. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it related to gh?
Avatar n tn It is an infection caused by bacteria in the skin. Usually the area is red, swollen. You can tell if it is getting bigger by lining the red area with a pen or marker. If the red area starts exceeding the line, you know its spreading. It can be painful and warm to the touch. You would need antibiotics. Or it could also be a staph infection, which should also be treated asap.
Avatar m tn wide where my left leg meets my butocks just under the tesitcles. It is a bit painful and after trying numerous otc meds it's stil the same. I'd appreciate any info you might have. Thank you very much.
Avatar m tn Though infection get transmitted if the resistance is good the chances of trasmission are unlikely.Howevever best to wait for the eradication of the organism.
Avatar f tn Hair follicles that are blocked by greasy creams, petroleum jelly, or similar products are more vulnerable to infection. Bacterial skin infections can be spread by shared cosmetics or washcloths, close human contact, or by contact with pus from a boil or carbuncle. Treatment includes antibiotics and please do not touch or pick them up. If the symptoms persist then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist.
Avatar m tn also the lesions she has is more likely not to be warts because these were not elevated skin lesions, but looked exactly like normal skin but with a fleshy color, none were on her genitals or mouth
Avatar n tn These could be due to irritation, infection and possible skin conditions such as dermatitis or eczema. Try not to scratch to prevent secondary infection. If it persists, have this evaluated further. Direct clinical examination is essential. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Scally fish skin. Itchy. White patches. Red area. Becomeing more wide spread. Never had skin issues until after surgery. Still have post op respiratory infection after doing antibiotics still present as well.
Avatar n tn He had fleas about 6 months ago and was treated by the Vet. Now he is fleas free but has small black patches on the skin between his leg joints and stomach area. The hair has become thin in these areas also. The rest of his skin is red and scaly. I give him oatmeal baths once a week along with an application of hydrocortisone cream, I also give him Benadryl and Zyrtec every night. If I don't wash him at least once a week, he develops a sour smell that is really awful.
