Avatar m tn It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. I suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. If it is scabies, then you may need permethrin and oral Ivermectin. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn My skin is very sensitive, I've dealt with odd rashes all of my life, mostly from soaps and detergents. About 2 years ago when I was in a relationship the guy told me that he would have this stuff on his back appear every once in a while and his doctor gave him special shampoo to control it. I never quite found out what it was. later into our relationship I noticed this rash on my back that just keep getting worse espeacially when it was hot outside and I was sweating.

Avatar m tn Warts are tumours or growths of the skin caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV).They are contagious when in contact with the skin of an infected person. It is also possible to get warts from using towels or other objects used by an infected person. Exactly what it is can be confirmed only after examination and biopsy. My sincere advice would be to get it examined from a dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
1798727 tn?1315739792 Seborrhoeic Dermatitis is believed to be an inflammatory reaction related to the proliferation of normal skin habitant Malassezia – a yeast, which produces toxic substances that infect and irate the skin. The disease is neither contagious nor related with diet but it may be aggravated by other illness like Psychological stress, immune compromised patients, neurological diseases like Parkinsonism and stroke.
Avatar n tn Blisters can be part of many rashes. Insect bites can potentially result in blisters. Other rashes that have blisters include: Contact dermatitis, which is an allergic reaction to something applied to the skin. Herpes infection, either a cold sore (Herpes simplex) or shingles. Most of the time shingles occupies a larger area than a cold sore, but that is not a hard and fast rule. Both of these should be treated with an antiviral medication.
Avatar n tn Ever since, Bumps and rashes would appear on the side of my hip. Then, I started to itch almost everywhere, and when I did, a bump or two would appear there.

I am 14 years old, FYI.

Avatar m tn About 2 1/2 years ago, I went to a local dermatologist for the skin condition that I had developed. I was told that is was Pityriasis Rosea and was given a cream to apply. It seemed to help, but then the reddish roundish spotscame back. I was told that this condition is fungal, but of unknown causes. I was still breastfeeding my baby daughter at the time, but was told that it wasn't contagious.

Avatar n tn Some people propose it to be genetic in nature. Hepatitis is not contagious through skin to skin contact and hence this being the cause of lichen planus are very less.

For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn I used to get heat rashes from working out in the summer and of course, I get super sweaty and if I scratch my skin rashes will form. I've been experiencing heat rashes for 4 years now. I used to not get them when I was active in sports back in high school. I get rashes when I super work out. Over time I learned to not scratch my skin after working out so the rashes went away.
Avatar m tn If it is painful then herpes is an important possibility.

1083321 tn?1256272312 Today (10/22/09) I developed a sudden itchy rash that turned the skin on my arms and knees hot and bright pink. There are small portions of raised white skin that look similar to mosquito bites of different sizes, but I haven't seen bugs recently (it's cold out) and I don't remember being bitten. I change my sheets and towels once a week.
Avatar m tn He says that it helps a little but he is still getting the rashes. A few years ago he had contact dermatitis on his back and this rash sort of looks like that but just in various places now like his arms and legs. At night when we get into bed he is scratching so bad he is leaving marks on his legs and I am concerned. It doesn't seem to be contagious or anything because I am not having the problem with itching so I am not sure what in the world is going on. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Skin rashes sometimes are psoriasis in which are not contagious. They would clear up on their own. Hard to say without looking the rash. Because it has been 2 mos. a dermatologist is recommended.
Avatar f tn Have the rashes swabbed and a PCR test performed to determine whats causing these rashes. Genital rashes are often fungal related.
