Skin rash after antibiotics

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash after antibiotics


Avatar n tn Many of us here never saw a tick or a rash either, and the symptoms can change over time from not much to really bad or the other way around. It's different for everyone. The doctor sounds like he is paying attention, which is great -- too many drs don't take Lyme seriously. Was your son tested for coinfections -- other diseases that are sometimes carried by the Lyme ticks? That can make a big difference, because the coinfections are not always treatable by the same meds as Lyme.

Avatar m tn hi, am 21 years old, with no history of any kind of skin rash or allergies. I did not even have any pimples that teenagers had. Since more than 2 months now, am having a rash on my face. It started when i started threading the hair on my face in a saloon. They told me that when the hair is growing back it is causing the pimple or reddness. They told me to use fucidin cream after threading directly. It did not work. I stopped threading long time ago now, but the pimples keep on coming.
Avatar m tn She saw one dermatologist and he took one quick glance and all he said was, you have very dry skin. She tried to show him the water pustules under her skin but he refused to even look at it more closely and told her to use lotion. I've attached a picture where her hand is in the stage of very dry and scabbing. I wasn't able to get a clear enough shot of the pustules as they are very small. Is there sort of over the counter medicine she should be trying?
Avatar f tn And appeared yesterday but only 3 red spots, bit ichy, completely gone after i ve taken antihistamine. The rash looks like hives- red patch which turns into bumps.
Avatar n tn If you have diabetes then this needs to be investigated as it can result in skin problems. After a course of antibiotics also it is possible to get both bacterial and fungal infection of skin. However it cannot be an allergic reaction to the antibiotic as that would be more general. Correct treatment will depend on diagnosis, for which you will need to consult a skin specialist. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Now, only a few hours after the sex, I started to notice a rash start to develop on the under skin under of my penis. Red pimples that covered about 75%of the skin under my penis. I panicked at first, but started reading material on the Internet. A common thread occurred, that if a skin rash occurs within hours after sexual encounter, it's not linked to STI or STD. I applied some dermlotion and Goldbound in the mornings. The red pimples morphed into scolded (heat rash) type rash.
Avatar f tn I started experiencing a rash in the anal area and vaginal, just after I spent some days at the beach, that was a relaxing trip, with friends, no sex or foreplay implied, beach bathing and long periods of hot sun expositions, plus I spent a big part of one day wearing my bathing suit under very hot and sometimes dry and sometimes humid conditions.
Avatar n tn Pls consult a dermatologist in that case.Also in future,after waxing apply cold compresses on the skin and then some calamine lotion. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Warm regards.
Avatar f tn Hi, Eczema is a general term used to describe a variety of conditions that cause an itchy, inflamed skin rash. Atopic dermatitis, a form of eczema, is a non-contagious disorder characterized by chronically inflamed skin and sometimes intolerable itching. An individual is more at-risk for developing the condition if there is a personal or family history of atopic dermatitis, hay fever, asthma, or other allergies.
Avatar n tn I would not put neosporin on heat rash if it's not infected. You want the area to stay nice and dry, not all gooey, and there's no need for the antibiotics if you don't have open sores. I've never heard of baking soda being any good. Since you're sensitive to perfumes, use some plain old cornstarch on it to keep it dry and from chafing. If it's itchy, a little hydrocortisone might help.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be contact dermatitis ,sweat dermatitis , heat rash, pityriasis versicolor or pityriasis rosea. Pityriasis versicolor 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. A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best as treatment is different for all.
Avatar m tn I wasn't too bothered but I noticed over the next few days they increased, some were red but most were skin coloured lumps. They have increased in number and a week after them appearing on my left elbow they have appeared on my right elbow too. Now there are many skin coloured lumps clustered all over this area, with a lot red and itchy and sore as a result of me scratching them. I noticed that the area was weeping and crusting over with a yellow residue last week but this no longer happens.
Avatar f tn You can also use a barrier cream with zinc oxide paste or petroleum jelly applied directly to wet skin after bathing. If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a gynecologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn A boil usually appears suddenly and presents as a red bump with surronding skin also red and swollen. This usually ruptures and drains and clears out after 2 weeks. Carbuncles, on the other hand, is a cluster of boils that occurs on the neck, shoulder, back and thighs.They cause a deeper infection and heal more slowly and are likely to develop scars.Things that make carbuncle infections more likely include friction from clothing or shaving, generally poor hygiene and weakening of immunity.
Avatar f tn I've been on benadryl and also have been putting anti itch cream and more recently, hydrocortisone cream on, but it isn't gone yet! After 4 days of hydrocortisone cream, the skin now looks brownish more that red! It still itches.My dermatologist is booked until April. Called another local one and they aren't taking new patients!Hoping you can help.Some things I'm wondering if triggered it.... I started on Vitamin D, 1-2 weeks before, as well as Calcium(Oscal).
Avatar n tn Rash is one of the sx of Riba, so as long as you are taking that, you could have the rash. Just keep that cream handy, and at the first sign of a new break out, put some on.
Avatar n tn rash are easy to get, i do have like u said it disperse aroudn my right arm and leg but after the rash i got test for HIV it a negetive...if it HIV rash and i have the same symptoms like u...i considerly my test would be positive...
Avatar m tn I continued to shave there, not really thinking much about it. After a week it had still not gone away, and I noticed I was scratching it almost constantly. The area was red and inflamed, the bumps were puffy. I stopped shaving in that area and did my best not to scratch, it seemed to get better, "drying" up and scabbing over. I woke up in the middle of the night scratching, and the next day it was worse than ever.
Avatar n tn About 2 days after they were no longer in my system I developed a rash. It looks like a heat rash, although it doesn't itch. It is on my legs, arms, and back and has lasted 5 days. I feel fine and the rash does not bother me, but I wanted to see if it is something I should be concerned about since I was recently on antibiotics and Predinsone. Any Thoughts?
Avatar n tn Hello, These small bumps can be due to folliculitis after sun tanning. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case.
Avatar n tn Recently I experienced a rash that lasted quite a while, after weeks of driving myself crazy with my thoughts (which I feel aggrivated the situation incredibly) I went to the derm. which told me that my fear of herpes wasnt the case, he suggested ringworm .. I was relieved but skeptical at best... After doing some research online which is a double edged sward (most sites can get your thoughts driving you crazy in 2.
Avatar n tn Hi Dr., I have a red pinkish, Non Ichy rash on the head of my penis in which I just noticed one morning. I figured it was just go away but it has not and its been about 3 weeks. Its about 1/2 inch in size and scaly. I am starting to get worried about what it is. Thanks for your response.
Avatar n tn I have a very itchy skin rash that continues to spread. It started on my right leg with a couple of what looked like bug bites. But as I scratched it spread to my left leg and looked like impetigo. So my doctor gave me clindamycin. The infection went away but the rash was still there. Another doctor said it looked like mites and prescribed me premethrin, but I broke out in hives after using it. The rash then spread to my forearms.
Avatar n tn I also had a rash on neck and chest. Neck rash started around mid treatment and chest rash started near end of treatment. Got various diagnoses, but the bottom line is that they both resolved around 4-6 months post treatment. I was on various skin meds during that time including topical steroids, Elidel, anti fungals and topical antibiotics. Have no idea which if any helped the rash. Probably time was the best healer but by all means see a good dermatologist if they are bothering you.
Avatar f tn Patch of skin starts as rash turns into blisters ask my doctor he gave a list of issues but now it is coming back we thought spider bite but now that it is returning that is not the problem. Haven't had chicken pox ever, sexually active but married cheating not an issue, did take antibiotics keflex, just had ear surgery. It is itchy in the beginning but once it blisters it is tender any clues?
Avatar m tn i also have this happening to me its very alarming since i was perscribed batrim from a doctor for what was originally said to be a bladder infection. after taking the antibiotics for a couple of days the skin around the head of my penis started to swell along with the head itself. i had gone through this years ago and was told it was a side effect of the antibiotics and that i had a male yeast infection. i also felt very itchy from the bactrim on my hands feet and genitals.
Avatar m tn 3 or 4 days ago I began to develop a skin rash on my face. Small red blisters, they weep a small amount of clear fluid. Not painful. I am in good health, with no previous medical conditions. I am surprised to get this. I am teaching in rural Thailand and there is no medical immediately available. Any clues would be useful. Do I need to see a Dr urgently? Or just wait till it goes away? Or spread something on my face?
