725805 tn?1231049913 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 m tn m hoping someone out there who has experience with this problem or have any ideas what is going on. I have this skin problem for 7 days and it appears only at this area which is the left side of my abdomen. This happened to me on the same day when I have GERD. Is it normal to have this skin rashes after GERD or this could be Shingles? Please help.
Avatar n tn I have dermatitis on my breasts and had all the affected skin removed from one of them for testing to rule out cancer. After my scar healed, within just a few days the dermatitis or rash came back and is now worse than what it was to begin with. If all the affected skin is removed, how quickly can the skin develop into dermatitis or a rash?
Avatar f tn only once on my face, it skin cancer or some other type of disease i should be worried doesn't hurt or itch.they burn looks flat and smooth with my skin not rough.what is this or should i be very afraid?
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 m tn Rash or pimple on the shaft may be attributed to irritation, inflammation, skin infection or skin issues such as dermatitis. This does not necessarily be caused by a bladder infection. There may be an association with blood in the urine though especially if there is history of urinary stones. Management for bladder infections usually involves antibiotics. If the symptoms persist, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I suggest that you see your Dr. for an examination in regards to the itchy rash you have. It is true that there is one type of breast cancer that has skin symptoms but what you describe doesn't sound like that. You might even think about seeing a Dermatologist about the skin rash. Regards ....
Avatar m tn 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 n tn s had no symptoms up to this point and her liver biopsy showed no signs of cirrhosis or cancer. She has had a facial skin rash on the sides of her face, neck and around her mouth for a year and a half. The dermatologist is perplexed and doesn't know what it is. Ofcourse she wasn't aware she had Hep. C at the time. Is this facial rash a symptom of having Hep. C? She says it feels like it's coming from undrneath her skin or from within. Not so much on the surface.
Avatar f tn thinks it is blood clots under her skin and no oxygen or nutrients are getting to her skin so the skin is dying and developing into rashes. He is considering blood thinner to reduce the blood clotting under her skin but what about bleeding out if there's no skin?
Avatar n tn Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. 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 I have been researching on a new type of breast cancer called Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC Inflammatory). If your sister has breast cancer you may want to get checked, just in case. You can go to and type in IBC inflammatory and watch the video on this and go to and read about this type of breast cancer, because it is sometimes not seen in a mammogram or and in most cases you will not have a lump.

Avatar f tn t hurt nor does it itch I always wonder what could it be and want to know If it could be treated ? I also got this weird skin rash beneath my penis and on the bottom of balls could this be penile cancer or some sort of cancer or what ?
Avatar f tn // Yes, it does often involve issues starting with the skin of the penis. What about seeing a dermatologist? That would be my next stop if I were you. A biopsy and imaging would make sense. Has either of those been done?
Avatar n tn In general, it does not go away. Skin on the breast is like skin on any other part of the body and is subject to a variety of abnormalities, many of which are much more common than IBC. If you remain concerned, you should have your doctor evaluate again.
Avatar f tn m worried about skin cancer. It is pink the same color as my skin for the most part, but when I take a shower it reddens. My mother has been telling me its just dry skin, but recently I made a dermetologist appointment... can someone please help me..
Avatar m tn This is the one type of breast cancer where there are symptoms and this is how it is usually diagnosed. What you have posted seems more like a skin problem but I'm sure the Breast Surgeon will clear this up for you. The skin on the breast is the same as skin on any other part of the body and subject to the same problems. IF IBC is suspected then a skin biopsy could be done to prove or disprove this diagnosis.
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 m tn When i go out in the cold and return into a room that is warm/well heated my skin breaks out in a rash. The dermatologist said it might be some type of allergy. He has prescribed numerous medications and i am still getting the rash. I'm starting to worry it might be a symptom for something serious. I have been looking online for answers and have seen posts suggesting cancer all the way to hiv. Any suggestions? Am i over reacting?
442270 tn?1208026321 My aunt has breast cancer and is going through chemo at this moment and she said she had these bumps as well and since the chemo they went away and it just worries me especially seeing that breast cancer could start out as a eczema like rash. I am going to get a doctors appointment as soon as I can.
Avatar f tn Of course I googled eveyrhing and convinced myself I had inflammatory BC. But I dumpling orange peel or nipple issues. And the rash is under my breast skin and went down torso and other side. Now I’m really freaked out so I feel like my shoulder hurts and underarm. Am I making myself crazy and feel these things or is it legit? Also cooks my skin issues be connected ?
