Avatar n tn He started with one wart on his knee, he now has multiple large warts on his knee and there is a very large circlular red rash that encompasses his entire knee. The skin on the inside of the circle is loosing color-very pale. The rash is red and raised and he said at night especially it itches and gets hot. Any ideas????
Avatar m tn Dyshidrotic eczema is characterized by a sudden onset of many deep-seated pruritic, clear vesicles which itch and then peel off. As a result the skin may also fissure. You should stop using any cosmetic, use mild soaps and lotions and apply some calamine lotion on the rash. If it itches then you can take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin. If the rash spreads then get it evaluated from a dermatologist as you may need oral steroids which should be taken under medical guidance.
Avatar n tn Some products cause a reaction only when they contact the skin and are exposed to sunlight (photosensitivity). The skin lesion or rash at the site of exposure could vary from reddish rash, papules (pimple-like), vesicles, and bullae (blisters). Topical corticosteroid medications may be used to reduce the inflammation. A course of oral antibiotics could also be indicated for the pustules to clear up. Ref:http://www.myonlinewellness.
Avatar n tn The sores outside of the arm pit are about half the size of a penny... however when they heal the skin is about 5 shades lighter than my skin? Weiod... HELP.
Avatar n tn Typical symptoms of dermatitis herpetiformis include burning, stinging, and intense itching and rash consists of small vesicles on the extensor aspects. It is an autoimmune blistering disorder associated with a gluten-sensitive enteropathy. Investigation which needs to be done is biopsy skin which is the only investigation to diagnose this condition.
Avatar m tn It is characterized by a sudden onset of many deep-seated pruritic, clear vesicles which itch and then peel off. As a result the skin may also fissure. It may get aggravated by stress. 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.
Avatar f tn It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and for confirming the diagnosis you should get the rash checked from a dermatologist. 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.
Avatar m tn I am sorry you are having such a bad time with the rash. Your rash may not have been due to the Incivek. It may be a rash from the Ribavirin. I know the sun worked for Mark but, for most of us, the sun makes our rashes much, much worse. My advice would be to get on top of the rash immediately. It can snowball out of control rapidly. If I were you I would make an urgent appointment with a dermatologist and have the derm doc evaluate and prescribe the meds.
Avatar f tn I have had a terrible rash on my neck and chest. Could never fall asleep last night the pain was so intense. Sharp, shooting, searing pain. Called the office this morning and they made an appt. to look at this rash tomorrow afternoon. I asked her if she could order an analgesic script for me until then and she said no, because the incivek rash does'nt have pain associated with it. She said it may be shingles because this tx lowers the resistance.
Avatar m tn I've had a skin rash going on for about 9 months. No idea what's causing it or how to treat it and I haven't been in the position to go to the skin doctor due to lack of money. It started on my left arm down by the elbow. It was only skin colored at first, then it got red and blotchy. As time went on, it slowly spread up my forearm. Then little tiny blister like places showed up on my fingers and hand and then the other forearm and hand started showing the weird rash.
Avatar f tn They are for the most part not itchy. Simultaneously I also developed a rash consisting of small vesicles on my hands and later feet. The vesicles are pin ***** sized with clear fluid inside. They are not itchy, but they slightly hurt (feeling of tightness) and if I pop them with a pin the ones on the feet become very itchy (not on hands though). There are about 6 on each hand and more on the feet. I think they multiply after I itch the ones on the feet.
Avatar n tn My 5 y/o son has had a skin rash on the lower leg for about 2-3 months now; I have taken him to 3 different doctors and he's been treated for impetigo, contact dermatitis, and now fungal infection. The rash is only in one spot my son is african american and it has turned the spot affected completely black. He complaints of intense itching but no pain; vesicles are present with little to no drainage; it appears irritated from him continously scratching the rash.
Avatar n tn For the past 3 weeks I have had a skin rash on my right arm. It appears to be red and blotchy and there are little red bumps all around it. It started out looking just like a pimple, and I bothered it alittle and then it spread all over my arm. At first my mom thought it was ringworm, but it spread much worse after that. I went to the doctors and they didn't know exactly what it was so they gave me some fungal cream and steriods to take away the itch. Didn't work.
Avatar f tn Some of the red bumps had pustules, some developed vesicles or blisters, and now they are starting to ooze with yellowish discharge that dry up into crusts. My scalp is also very bumpy and crusty. Itching is intense and they now feel like open sores after 2 or 3 weeks from the initial outbreak. I also have some bruising in some areas of my body--like on the lower left side of my abdomen. I've been scratching all day and all night and it's driving me crazy! I can't take it anymore.
Avatar n tn Hi These rash may in fact be ringworm. Ringworm or tinea corporis may present as a well demarcated red circular rash over the skin. The rash may present with small vesicles and the center may present with fine scales or a clearing. An evaluation of skin scrapings for the area using KOH examination may be able to help In the absence of any excoriations and open wounds in the area, you may opt to apply a corticosteroid and antifungal preparation thinly over affected areas and see if it improves.
Avatar m tn Although there may be no initial reaction, repeated contact with metals or chemicals in the dye used for the tattoo can cause eventual sensitization and reaction to the product. Skin lesion or rash at the site of exposure can range from redness, rash, papules (pimple-like), vesicles, and bullae (blisters). Initial treatment includes thorough washing with lots of water to remove any trace of the irritant that may remain on the skin.
Avatar n tn it sort of looks like poison ivy but i havent been around any of that and the rash isnt speading to any other fingers of anything it just keeps spreading on my ONE finger... can anyone help me figure out what it could be?
Avatar f tn Hi there I have this vesicular rash all over my abdomen and I have no idea what it is. It's slightly itchy but not anything major. Please could somebody help.
Avatar n tn Any contact with the area feels exactly as if I'm touching raw tender skin (probably less painful) and the discomfort seems to be just skin-deep. There is never a rash or injury of any kind, and I can't trace it to any kind of lifestyle thing, activity, detergent, etc. It's been going on for years, never lasts more than a few days, and is never more than mildly annoying.
Avatar m tn However, it never went away and when I got home, it continued to itch and I noticed a few more spots on my butt. They were raised and skin tone, but when I scratched them, they became red. Then, I noticed some on my hips and waist-band region. I went to the doctor where he thought the rash was atopic dermatitis, so he gave me a cortisone shot and a steroid cream to use. The cream didnt work so I was given steroid pills.
Avatar f tn Hi, In all cases HSV is never removed from the body by the immune system. Following symptomatic or asymptomatic primary infection the virus enters the nerves at the site of primary infection, migrates to the cell body of the neuron, and becomes latent in the trigeminal ganglion. Orofacial herpes affects the face and mouth. Infection occurs when the virus comes into contact with oral mucosa or abraded skin.
Avatar n tn However I used a lube a few days that dryed out the skin around the top of my lips. On my bikini line and now the front of my vagina where i shave alot had some red slightly itchy bumps. Some of them have puss in them. I feel like when I recently had sex i irriated the skin since it was kind of raw. Is this a std? How can i make this better? Because it's grossing me out.
Avatar n tn This would increase your chance of contacting herpetic infections as herpes is spread through direct skin to skin contact. These red bumps need to be assessed. Although this does not sound like herpes, I would suggest an early assessment just to be sure. Herpetic infections are usually clustered vesicles on a reddish base. Is this similar to what you have? Have you informed your guardian or parents about this just in case you need physician consult?
Avatar m tn The problem: I'm uncircumcised and a small rash has started to form about a finger's width below the head of my penis. It consisted of a lot of very small blisters and looks extremely similar to poison ivy; although, I don't think that's what it is. I've been taking isotretinoin in the form of Claravis for over three months. Originally a very similar rash appeared on the backs of my hands, but they went away with lotion.

554744 tn?1215407646 Hi This appears to be an eczematous skin condition. Eczema may start as vesicles or blisters on the skin. These blisters may pop and become itchy. The itchiness may result to an itch scratch cycle which may later on cause excoriations. These may even involve normal skin. Have you tried applying topical corticosteroids for these? Any known allergies to deodorants or perfumes?
Avatar m tn   Im afraid for my life and pray to god its not.. and just skin rash. It doesnt hurt. Nor am I swelling or have a flu or any abdominal pain... what could this be??? Link to pic
