Common Questions and Answers about Skin rash cancer


Avatar n tn im worried i may have some kind of skin cancer. Thank you.
Avatar n tn After developing total body rashes after using Septra and Minocyline they did another biopsy and discovered non-small cell lung cancer(Stage 3) He has begun chemotherapy (gemzar and paraplatin) which has slightly improved the rash but it remains. His skin is very dry and these bumps and patches of red scaly skin, though not itchy, are a great source of frustration for him. Can you recommend any therapy, external and/or internal that could help with this? The oncologist has no suggestions.
Avatar n tn I started looking up my symptoms of irregular color on my vulva and the only thing that pops up is skin cancer. The growths are not raised at all and look cauliflower like. I do not feel like it looks like the pictures of melanoma I saw. Could it be something else?
Avatar n tn I have metastatic brain cancer from breast cancer and am being treated every 4 weeks with cisplatin and caelyx. I have developed a rash on my thighs and upper arms. Is there anything I can do about it?
725805 tn?1231053513 Hospice benefits elected after the last round of chemo nearly killed her and her cancer was deemed not curable. Last week a rash developed on her feet. It started as pin sized dots that looked like pettechia. Within 2 days she had developed progressive swelling to the feet and lower legs. The rash is now spread to all extremeties and now has large raised reddish purple spots with blisters. There is no itching, just some discomfort from the rash.

Avatar f tn I've tried lotion and foam prescribed from the doctor. I don't have dry skin-it's very oily skin. I was diagnosed with breast cancer on April 23, 2010 and am currently in remission. Nothing seems to be related to that and I'm desperatley wanting some good advice. Please HELP!!
Avatar n tn there's a big long strip of them from my ankle to above my knee. Along with the rash i have bruising at the bottom of the rash on my ankles. I'm really nervous as to what this could be... please offer some advice, i'd really appreciate it.
Avatar n tn Dear sassbells, More likely this is a skin condition, however without more information and ability to ask questions, and examine it is difficult to say. A first place to start would be to bring this to the attention of your doctor, who can evaluate and make appropriate treatment suggestions.
Avatar n tn Time to get this checked out. It might be skin cancer (not melanoma and not nearly that lethal), or maybe even lupus.
Avatar f tn Hi, Skin rashes are very common among breast cancer patients on chemotherapy. A good percentage of my patients develop skin problems including reddening, darkening, peeling, rash, burning sensation, nail changes, mucus membrane changes etc. Please consult with your oncologist, who may prescribe medication like anti-histaminics or even a short course of low dose steriods. (In fact you may already be on steroids for a few doses after Taxotere.) All the best and God Bless!

Avatar n tn You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps.For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone as dermacort), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). These dry rashes can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin.
Avatar n tn You should reconsult with your doctor to rule out the following possible causes - 'Perfumes, chemicals, or dye on toilet paper can cause an allergic reaction. Moisture from sweat or diarrhea may cause itching. If the anal skin stays wet, the skin begins to break down. Some foods irritate the anus when they are expelled during a bowel movement. The most common culprits are caffeine, chocolate, beer, nuts, dairy products, and spicy food.
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 f tn Some of these things maybe that they changed an ingrediant but I know I can't use certain product and I used sunscreens all my life to prevent skin cancer and now I can't find one I am not hypersensitive to .If you had the lymph nodes swollen since you were a kid it probably isn't anything to worry about and it isn't new. But were the groin ones new? So I would ask to be sure. I'm glad you CBC was normal. That rules out a lot of things.
Avatar n tn Skin cancer is usually a result of too much exposure to the sun. While skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, many types are both preventable and treatable. I think you should concern with the skin cancer specialist to treat and prevent your skin cancer.
Avatar n tn the raised ones are the ones that itch like crazy. the rash will come and go throughout the day but usually looks worse when my skin is warm (after showering or sitting outside, etc). i'll tell you what she told me... it's caused by a virus but they're not sure which one. it's common in children and young adults, but more in girls than guys. it will clear up by itself in usually 6-8 weeks but can last longer in some cases.
Avatar m tn I'm concerned because I know that cancer can spread to your lymph nodes and then to the rest of the body. Is this rash any indication of that? And if not, what could the rash and her tired symptoms be? Please get back to me, I'm very concerned. Thank you.
Avatar m tn but at the same time i tried to look up my symtoms online and i saw a photo of somebodys hand and it looks almost exactly like mines and it was skin cancer which actually worried me alot .....i am Scheduled to see the dermatologist Tomorrow To See Whats going on with my skin .....Any Suggestions On what It May Be?
Avatar n tn The rash resembles an X. The skin is discolored forming the X, but the rash part comes and goes and the discoloration does not. It stays that way. Well now, I have the circular patches that keep appearing all over that resemble psoriasis but I have never had that. I just hope someone can help me figure this out. I have no insurance and cannot afford to see a doctor. Thanks in advance for any help offered!
Avatar f tn I am a guy, I just started having strong itch during night. I have tried 2-3 different kind of medicine from my doctor nothing works. I am going to use Soap loofah and try gluten free diet like other have mentioned in the forum. I had it last year and when I tried antihistamine it worked. this is it not working as the weather changed. I will share what I find.
Avatar f tn The dermotologist is now saying he believes this has been misdiagnosed and I had a further 3 biopsies 2 weeks ago. I am now very concerned that this may be skin cancer. Are there any forms of skin cancer that resemble Granuloma Annulare in appearance?
Avatar f tn Hope this is the right section, I just have questions to try to make myself understand some things better perhaps. Is there an easy way to tell if a rash is cancer? I have a rash on the aereola (though mine are rather large...) Though I think it may be from the heat. (There's heat rash under my boobs X.X) How many days should I wait to see if it goes away? Does a cancerous rash "go away"? (IE: Turn back to skin color and not be red, I guess.
