Avatar f tn My Mother has had a skin issue going on for almost 2 years. She started with a rash on her hands and face, was given a high dose of erythromycin and became much worse after being out in the sun. She was taken off the antibiotics after going to Urgent Care and since then has visited her pcp, dermatologists, dermatopathologists (2) who took biopsies, rheumatologists, an endocrinologist and no one appears to know what is going on with her.
Avatar n tn The rash of rosacea appears to be thick and this may present with spider like veins on the surface of the skin. When these are present then the rash of rosacea is likely. Topical antibiotics are usually given for rosacea. Oral antibiotics may also be employed for more effective results. Have you been prescribed any antibiotics for your skin condition?
Avatar f tn i have had a strange rash inside the buttocks for about 3 weeks now. its dry and some what red but not very itchy unless touched. Its also on my pubic bone, at first i thought it was an allergic reaction because im living in a very hot tropical climate plus the shaving. Im getting a bit worried that it might be an STD. What is it, i started taking antibiotics, im in cambodia and the medical service is pretty much non existant. What kind of pills should i be taking or cream? Please help.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm female, 13 yrs old and i have had this rash for monthes now. At first I tried my mom's face cream.(olay regenerist microsculpting cream) and I was allergic so I had this huge bumpy red rash, that was crusty and swollen. Only on one side of my cheek. It was swollen so much that i looked like a half sumo wrestler. My lymph nodes were also swollen. So i went the doctor. They gave my antibiotics, allergy cream, and allergy pills.
Avatar f tn Since it came, i started taking antibiotics for a tooth and the rash is slowly progressing. It stopped hurting and swelling went dowm but its now peeling and the skin underneath is shiny and red. I do have HSV1 if that means anything.
Avatar n tn What happened to your rash...I have the same thing..almost a month now..I'm worried their is no treatment..
Avatar m tn A boil, also referred to as a skin abscess, is a localized infection deep in the skin. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out through the surface of the skin. Boil on buttocks is usually due to plugged sweat glands that become infected or by an ingrown hair.
Avatar n tn Hi, Ankle rash could be caused due to various reasons including - dermatitis, dry skin, eczema, heat rash or sweat dermatitis, uncomfortable footwear, etc. It is important to wear lose comfortable footwear and maintain good personal hygiene. Use a powder to avoid sweat collection and apply calamine lotion at the sites of the lesion. You could take oral antihistamine or antiallergic medications for the itching. Apply calamine lotion at the sites.
Avatar n tn Yes. Antibiotics even reach the skin, which is why they are sometimes used for acne. When you kill good bacteria, yeast that is always there goes out of control. Take an internal probiotic once you are done with antibiotics. Natural products that fight yeast are tea tree oil, baking soda, white vinegar. You can use Lotrimin cream. Follow the directions on the tube.
Avatar f tn About 3 weeks or so after stopping antibiotics (Amoxicillin and Biaxin) I developed a flat, red, and sometimes itchy rash on both breasts and my stomach. Sometimes I get shooting pains in my breasts. It has not spread from these areas. I thought it could be a yeast infection, so I started applying Lotrimin cream. I've used it for 7 days and the rash isn't any better. Does this sound like it could be a yeast infection? Does the cream need longer to work?
Avatar m tn I have started to get a rash on my inner thigh and on my pubic bone. The rash looks like separate large pimples and it is sensitive to the touch but otherwise not painful. It is not itchy, although a few weeks ago the area between my thigh and scrotum was itchy. I do not think this is an std because I have been very careful with who i sleep with, and have only had one partner in the past year and a half. I think it may be some sort of fungal infection but I am not sure.
Avatar f tn Hello, Since the rash on breast is spreading it can be due to dermatitis skin or cellulitis skin. Cellulitis is an acute infection of skin and soft tissues characterized by localized pain, swelling, tenderness, erythema, and warmth.It usually follows a break in the skin, such as a fissure, cut, laceration, insect bite, or puncture wound. I suggest you an immediate dermatologist’s evaluation and get the skin biopsied to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Ok, last year i developed a under the skin rash on the philtrum, the skin would feel tight, and often peel, and sometimes be itchy, sometimes sore. The skin never broke or bled. It was generally just red and very uncomfortable to be in public. After many trips to the doctor - antibiotics, anti fungus cream, antibiotic creams and hydrocourtizone, nothing seemed to shift it.
Avatar n tn It is producing a green substance. The skin is peeling in the area. It hurts quit abit like a bad sun burn. It feels like its getting worse as the days go .
Avatar m tn swollen pelvic lymph nodes, red scrotum and a slight drip from my penis. I received antibiotics from my local clinic but after 2 days I still have discomfort and the rash on my testicles remains. I’m really freaked out because the rash is where the girl was grinding on me so now I’m worried that it might be herpes. Is there anything I can do in this situation besides sitting around and waiting to see what happens?
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 f tn Do not apply gauze directly, do dressing with Vaseline gauze, that will not stick with the skin and help in making the skin smooth. At times in case of superficial abrasions no dressing is required.In case when large areas are involved you may need oral antibiotics and analgesics also that will help in faster recovery. Wishing you good health.
Avatar f tn ve been on Doxycycline for almost 6 weeks now and I did feel a little bit better for a while. However, I still have a couple of symptoms left -- one is this burning pain on my skin. I actually feel it on my tongue sometimes, too. It moves around; hard to explain but it feels almost like a freezer burn would feel. It comes & goes in intensity, and it moves around, but mostly affects my forearms and lower legs. It has not gotten any better since on treatment.
