Skin infection on face

Common Questions and Answers about Skin infection on face


Avatar n tn Hi If the blisters are reddish bumps with yellowish centers then these may be acne or folliculitis. Folliculitis refers to a bacterial skin infection that involves hair follicles. They may appear as reddish bumps that may be tender or painful. They are also contagious. If you shave frequently, then this increases the risk of acquiring folliculitis. Cuts on the skin may facilitate bacterial infection. Acne is a likely differential here.

Avatar n tn Hello! I'm 14 year old boy. I have problems with my skin. I have an infection, but i don't know, what kind of infection it is. I have red spots on my face and in places these spots are surrounded by a small wall. Skin is sometimes dry (especially with some creams) and desquamates. Sometimes it's more ruddy and sometimes less. It's on my cheeks, nose and chin. I had it on my head too. Or i think, that it was the same. I had there red spots, but not anymore.
Avatar f tn Hello, The commonest causes of such kind of blisters on face are contact dermatitis, bullous staph infection and herpes zoster. Herpes is caused by HSV. Pain, burning, tingling, or itching occurs at the infection site before the sores appear. Then clusters of blisters erupt which break down.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctors Hook & Handsfield, I have what seems to be an issue with HSV2 on my face. I spent hours typing out a long series of questions but was stopped by character limit. PLEASE SEE MY LONGER POST IN STD Forum "HSV2 On Face".12/15/12 – Most likely exposed to HSV2 virus on face via oral sex with wife of 20 years. My wife & I both have Genital HSV2. We have never had symptoms on our face. 12 hours later noticed rough dry skin spot on side of lower lip.
1414174 tn?1304680526 Have you tried putting lots of lotion on your face? Most people get very dry skin while on tx, and since the skin on the face is more fragile than the rest of your body, it may react more drastically to the lack of body oil.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be acne, bullous staph infection or even the possibility of impetigo and herpes need to be ruled out. Impetigo is a highly contagious bacterial infection and causes blister like sores on the body. Primarily caused by Staphylococcus aureus and sometimes by Streptococcus pyogenes. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated.
Avatar m tn Hello, These spots can be due to pityriasis versicolor. 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. You should get it examined from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis. 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 Hi White spots of skin over the face in children may be due to tinea versicolor which is a fungal infection or pityriasis alba which is a benign skin condition. As part of the differential, vitiligo should also be considered. I suggest that you continue with the sunscreen as this in many ways offer skin protection. Bring your child to a dermatologist to have this white patches assessed. I do not think these white patches are caused by the sun. Are these itchy? Do these bumps scale?

Avatar n tn Hello, Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky, dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp. under the nose or anywhere on face. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily). Active ingredients in these shampoos include salicylic acid, coal tar, zinc, resorcin, ketoconazole, or selenium.
Avatar f tn Is it possible to get syphilis this way, and can syphilis live on intact skin (on hands), or does it die immediately like on other surfaces? I'm really freaking out and I don't want to somehow spread it to my family. Thanks to anyone who can help me.
Avatar n tn Also, if they are little warts on my face, when I touch my face to wash it or put moisturizer on...will that spread the warts all over my face? Thats mainly what I'm worried about is spreading them. I worry too much about everything to begin with...but its to the point where I'm worried to dry off my face after the shower because of spreading it.
Avatar f tn Since then, I have had two more show up on my legs and another on my face. They look similar to a burn blister. The first one I received has scabbed over and is getting bigger. It is now the size of a dime. The blisters itch a lot and ooze a clear liquid even once they have scabbed over. I have tried to treat them using peroxide and antibiotic ointment to prevent infection, but they seem to only be getting worse.
