1735424 tn?1357437158 My husband does not wear a Med Alert tag, although he probably should (something I should be thinking about in the near future) -- unfortunately, when he started treatment a few years back he ended up having to take off the few pieces of jewelry he did wear because everything irritated his skin... even had to stop wearing his wedding ring. The solution we used was to put all his prescriptions and allergies, etc.
Avatar f tn But you probably are just sweating more and developing an irritation or got something on your jewelry that is irritating your skin. You should try getting it cleaned at a jewelry store and see if that's the problem.
Avatar m tn Hello all, I am getting into the jewelry business and buying tungsten carbide rings from a very trusting company in China. They sent me the samples and a friend of mine who has gotten rashes from cheap jewelry before. She had one of the tungsten rings on for 5 days and noticed then it was causing a very bad skin rash with bumps and coloration. I did some research and found many people are actually allergic to nickel.
Avatar n tn Hi, An acrochordon or skin tag is a small benign growth that forms primarily in areas where the skin forms creases, such as the neck, armpit, and groin. In particular, vaginal or anal skin tags are are harmless, although they are sometimes irritated by clothing or jewelry and can interfere with intercourse or other activities. The reason why and how they form is not entirely known, but there are correlations with age and obesity.
Avatar f tn People who suffer from this disorder should avoid contact with triggering factors like soaps, cosmetics, jewelry, clothing, and detergents. Sometimes sweat, changes in temperature and psychological stress are known to trigger these episodes. So, the best way to prevent attacks is to identify those substances which you are allergic to and avoid them. And treatment is with cortisone based creams. Consult your primary care physician for therapy.
Avatar n tn I havn't found any on my legs or my arms, just my chest, throat, and on my jaw line. I have very sensitive skin, but nothing has effected that for a couple years now. The bumps are small and don't have any pus in them, the more i scratch the more red and itchy they get. They dont seem to bother me throughout the day, just when i wake up in the morning.
Avatar f tn Treatment includes hydrocortisone cream or selenium sulfide shampoo on the sore areas. Do you have a red, scaling rash, and did it begin after contact with clothing, jewelry or perfume?It can be irritant contact dermatitis. It's caused by a reaction to detergents, perfumes and other substances.In that case, Avoid whatever you think caused the symptoms and treat the area with hydrocortisone cream or other soothing lotions.
Avatar m tn Also, do not exercise for 4 to 6 hours after you eat. Also wear medical alert jewelry or ID tags describing the condition and sensitive substances and always carry a self-injectable epinephrine kit (Epi pen). I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Avatar m tn This went on for awhile then came the warm weather. Now my skin would itch and my face arms chest and back even legs at times would breakout from me running/warming up or exposure to hot water/hot temp. Seems like all i can drink is water to reduce the itchyness that happens when i warm up or take a hot shower. ive tried claritin benedryl all kinds of hestimine blocking medicine and it seems like nothing works.
Avatar f tn So he sent me to get a blood test for Lyme Disease, Hives, Allergies, and other stuff that may have caused the skin to welt up like it has, but all the tests came back negative! My mom thought it was from my bed fabric, but how can that be if I get them in school too? Then we thought it was bed bugs, negative, we checked the bed and washed the bedding for a few nights but they were still popping up even after changing the bedding.
Avatar n tn Hi, Skin tags usually do not cause any pain. They could become irritated if clothing or jewelry, rubs on them. In your case, the pain and purple colors may indicate compromise of the blood supplying it. I would recommend that you have this evaluated further by your doctor for proper management. Direct clinical examination is essential in the diagnosis. Take care and keep us posted.

Avatar f tn Many of the beauty products and oil essences that women use in the bath these days, may be really great for your skin and sense of relaxed satisfaction, but they can wreck havoc and do tiffany jewelry damage to your jewelry. Baths can do everything from creating seemingly mild, but definitely detrimental chemical combinations that can damage your jewels to actually loosening up the bonding components that hold the pieces together. html">CAV5115.
Avatar f tn I could be doing nothing and the burning is just there, if I go outside and the sun hits me it hurts, if the air conditioning touches my skin it hurts. Clothing, jewelry, bedding, it all is very sensitive to the skin. Then there's the numbness, tingling so bad that if I put my feet together they feel as though they are vibrating. I am currently taking 3600 mg of Neurontin, 25 mg of Prednisone, Arava, Methotrexate, Toprol XL, Norvasc, Vicodin ES, Duragesic Patch, and then on Monday Enbrel.
Avatar n tn When I exfoliate, it gets rid of all those dead skin cells, bothersome bumps, and leaves my skin feeling pretty smooth. #6 Use good lotions right after shower/bath, when skin is still damp. Then instead of drying off with a towel, use a blowdryer. It leaves your skin SO delicious!!!! #7 Put healing ointments on your target areas. Antibiotic ointments such as Neosporin, bacitracin, and others not only keep dry areas moist, but start the healing process.
Avatar n tn Never mind it was a skin tag it came off my leg. shrri 100.
Avatar f tn Hi, A skin tag is a small flap of tissue that hangs off the skin by a connecting stalk. Skin tags are benign and are not dangerous. They are usually found on the neck, chest, back, armpits, under the breasts, or in the groin area. Skin tags appear most often in women, especially with weight gain, and in elderly people. They do not cause any pain. However, they can become irritated if anything such as clothing or jewelry rubs on them.
Avatar n tn If you have a rash in neck and upper chest then it could be due to exposure to sun or due to any jewelry that you wear in your neck. If you wear a necklace or the rash started after you wore one then there is a possibility that your rash in due to that. It could also be a metal item in the neckline of your dress. 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 f tn Lots of allergies and asthma as well as Eczema and Sensitive Skin. I have had Eczema breakouts all my life. For the past 5 1/2 years I have been having this really irritating issue with my skin. Any time ANYTHING touches my skin, that area that was touched (usually scratched but sometimes bumped) becomes very red and bumped (hived??) up within minutes. I could play Tic Tac Toe on my arm like that if I wanted to.
Avatar f tn For about a month I have had a patch of skin ( about the size of a kidney bean)under my right eye that starts out red, then swollen, then dry, then flakey. The skin will flake off then my eye will be fine for 2-3 days then the cycle starts over again.
1896537 tn?1381903609 Would inflamed, burning skin on the neck area be linked to MS in any way? Some of the sx of MS are so random so I thought I'd check this out with you guys before bothering my doctor! Basically I felt a patch of burning on my neck on Sunday and it's got worse since. It's not itchy but it's sore & inflamed and the rash is quite course. I didn't think it could be MS related but I thought I best check?
Avatar n tn Dermographism is a normal physiological response of the skin. The term literally means writing on the skin. Firm stroking of the skin produces an initial red line (capillary dilatation), followed by an axon-reflex flare with broadening erythema (arteriolar dilatation) and the formation of a linear wheal (transudation of fluid/edema) termed the triple response of Lewis. Most symptoms can be controlled by taking antihistaminics like benadryl or Claritin or zyrtec.
Avatar m tn Fistulas are tracts which have two openings, one internally into the bowel and another externally onto the skin. This keeps draining fluid. This needs to be treated surgically. Another cause could be Eczema. People who suffer from this disorder should avoid contact with triggering factors like soaps, cosmetics, jewelry, clothing, and detergents. You can control the symptoms with prescription strength mild cortisone creams. Consult your primary care physician for therapy.
Avatar n tn Hi there, I have had symptoms since last June (07) that I have had all infectious conditions ruled out. I am now looking at biopsy of the vulvar skin to uncover some answers, so I wanted to post here to see if any other women have gone to a dermatologist and had results. I have posted on the women's health forums here, but since i have ruled out std's, fungus, bacteris, yeast, hormone levels, strep-B, etc etc, this is clearly a skin issue.

WE consulted doctor and we checked for allergy in blood. the report says no allergy in blood. we r waiting for a specialist appointment. before that i just want to have a discussion in thsi forum. Have any idea what is this due to.
Avatar n tn For years I've been having occasional episodes where small areas of my skin feel sore and tender. It tends to be on my torso somewhere, but I think I've experienced it on my upper legs and rear end as well. Right now it's an area starting at my spine below my ribcage, and wrapping around my side to the front a bit. It's a sensation that my skin is raw, as if it's been scraped or carpet-burned.
Avatar n tn The pain doesn't feel very deep either, it is just on the skin. Now I don't know if this is related to the strange skin sensitivity or not but about 4 days ago I started feeling this really weird sensation behind my left eye. It almost feels like I have to strain to move my eyeball to the left and when I do, I kind of have a dizzy feeling. I know this all sounds really weird but I feel like I have started to fall apart since the new year rang in!
Avatar m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
629993 tn?1242962958 Never mind that, I asked, how can you tell me I'm fine when all the doctors you referred me too have a very different opinion? I don't know where to turn or who else to see. My skin burns so badly when I rub it, it feels itchy - then I scratch - bad mistake!!!! Sometimes, there are the tiniest of bumps on the surface that bleed if I do give in to scratching - but to just look at these arms - there is no visible rash, the bumps are easier felt than seen.
Avatar n tn As for the cream, that is kind of strong to be using in such a delicate area and it really won't do much good for lightening the skin in that area since it works on the epidermis layer of skin not the dermis. What you are describing is normal coloring as most women have dark skin in the pubic/genital area. The bump could be an ingrown hair or cyst. Again, check with your GYN doctor to be safe.
