Avatar n tn My daughter was recently involved in an auto accident (10 days ago), and the paramedic made a comment to me, that air bags contain cyanide. Her burns on her arms are healing, but did develop a rash. I thought it was from the neosporin, or possibly the bandages themselves. So we have left it unwrapped and the rash is drying up. Today, she is developing a mild rash on her face. Could this be from the airbag? You can respond to me at ***@**** Thank you.

Avatar f tn It itches really bad, it also burns and I get these little white puscules that ooze until it dries up. Now I have been to see my PCP and dermatologist and I get a different answer from both of them. Along with the rash I have started developing painful boils that come and go. Not only do I get boils but my skin literally slices open in the creases of my body. I have been on antibotics, creams and everything under the sun. I get a diagnosis of, eczema, adult acne, peridontal syndrome, etc.

Avatar n tn Vaginal itching Vaginal discharge that may be thick, white and lumpy like cottage cheese Vaginal soreness, irritation or burning Rash or redness on the skin outside the vagina Burning on urination Painful vaginal intercourse That something else could very well be a fungus whose technical name is Candida, and which causes what is often called a "yeast" infection.

It if is the same thing, the only relief I found was to turn the shower up as warm as I could stand and just stay in there. It burns at first but eventually calmed down. Wife used coconut butter on my face to prevent scarring, that really burned. It did calm down the skin though.

Avatar n tn Take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin and apply some calamine lotion on the rash. Also wear cotton clothes and keep the skin sweat free. If the symptoms persist then please get it examined from a dermatologist. 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.

The itchy of the skin maybe the signs of many other disease.But if your wife`s symptom become even more serious that you should go to the hospital and see the doctor.
Avatar f tn He says that it burns and is painful only when touched. I noticed that it only seems to be at the base of hairs(every bump has a hair coming out) and the skin is peeling a little around it. Neither of us has ever had unprotected sex.
Avatar n tn It seems that when I lay down it is worse on my back and in the crease of my abdomen when seated. The rash is gone but it still is bothering me. Sometimes I think the skin is warm to the touch too. It seems to be worse when I am active. It is not too bad when I first wake up in the morning. Not looking forward to going to the doctor and having him tell me I am nuts. Any ideas?

Avatar n tn Hello, A rash which is generalized and appears all of a sudden is mostly due to allergic reaction or a viral infection but for your hands and feet symptoms, pompholyx should be ruled out. The exact cause is not known and excessive sweating can be one of the reasons. But some triggers like allergic reaction to soaps, detergents, foods, latex, nickel etc may trigger the symptoms. Apply some calamine lotion on the affected area and keep the area well moisturized.

Saw the doc, took some allergy tablets, had unprotected sex, took morning after, bleed and the rash came back in no time. This time it was itchy a d pain could be felt when touching it. It spread towards my who,e body and itchy. When burst it burns if I passed my hands on it.
Avatar f tn I have a rash that began on my legs, arms, stomach, and back, so I imagined that it could be a food intoxication, but then it started to disappear from the stomach and back and now it is only on the arms and legs. The rash is internal though, there are no bumps on the outside. I have been like this for two days and the places where the rashes are feel hot to the touch. They do not itch, except once in a while, but it mostly burns.
