Avatar m tn I have recently developed a red rash and sinsitive foreskin on my penus (not circumcised). I first noticed it after having slightly painful intercourse with my wife of 38 years (my only sex partner). Now the rash is spreading to the head of my penus and the foreskin is getting tighter and tares slightly when pulling the foreskin back which results in a little bleeding. I have kept everything very clean and the problem seams to be better if I go a day or two without pulling the skin back.
Avatar n tn Hi, It is true that an HIV infection may present with a rash but at this point you may be worrying unnecessarily. HIV rash are red or dark rash that appears to be slightly elevated. I know you are highly anxious about this . The more common forms of skin conditions need to be ruled out first. An allergic reaction is diagnosed based on a complete medical history and also, identification of particular triggers.

Avatar n tn The redness appears to be a rash. The skin is not raised. It has been present for roughly 2 days. I have eczemia, the rash appears to be very similar to eczemia outbreaks I have had in the past. The rash is much more pronounced when i am flacid and is not noticable when I have an erection. I do not have access to immediate medical care. Does this sound like herpes to you?

If it persists, you may need to have this evaluated further to rule out the differentials mentioned. Antihistamine medicationsmay also help.
Avatar n tn Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching. No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months(upto six months) If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.Other possibilities have to be ruled out then. I hope that helps.

On exposure to the allergen, an Immunologic (IgE) or a non-immunologic reaction is set in process, which ultimately releases histamine, which acts at the peripheral receptors, resulting in allergic reactions and rashes. The aim of the therapy is identification and removal of trigger factor.
Avatar n tn The itchiness could be due to contact dermatitis, that is exposure to an irritant like a chemical or metal or anything you are allergic to, it can cause itchiness and rash. The aim of the therapy is identification and removal of trigger factor. It is the most important and the only effective long-term therapy. Local measures like ice packs and antipruritic lotions are helpful. Antihistamines block the histamine receptors and prevent histamine from acting and thus help in preventing attacks.

Women are unable to enroll their children in school or daycare without a birth certificate, or to authorize their child to be treated in a medical emergency.
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.
