Avatar n tn Hi, This could be an allergic skin rash.Eczema is a chronic skin disorder that involves scaly and itchy rashes. Eczema is also called atopic dermatitis. Eczema is due to a hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) in the skin, which leads to long-term inflammation. The inflammation causes the skin to become itchy and scaly. In adults it is comon around the joints. Dry skin often makes the condition worse.
Avatar n tn Seborrheic dermatitis is the condition which is common for both the locations.Scabies is uncommon in adults on the scalp,while commoner in children.Pediculosis is commoner on the head but not so on chest.
Avatar m tn Hello, These non itchy red rashes on legs and arms should be evaluated and possibilities like dermatitis skin and psoriasis should be ruled out. Psoriasis is a long-term (chronic) skin problem that causes skin cells to grow too quickly, resulting in thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin. It is thought that psoriasis occurs when the immune system overreacts, causing inflammation and flaking of skin. Without a biopsy skin it is very difficult to confirm a diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Hello, Unfortunately the picture is not very clear but it can be a rash due to friction rub due to less lubrication or molluscum contagiosum. In adults, molluscum infections are often sexually transmitted and can transmit from one site to other skin sites by aoutoinocultaion. Treatment includes physical destruction or manual extrusion of the lesions, cryotherapy, and curettage. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist. I hope it helps.

Avatar n tn It is a common skin infection caused by the yeast Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climate. Most cases of fungal infection respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine, ketaconazole and clotrimazole. You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients.
Avatar m tn Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus that lives in the skin of almost all adults. Factors that can cause the fungus to become more visible include high humidity and immune or hormone abnormalities. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. 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 dermatologist.
Avatar n tn Hello, Lamictal has shown skin adverse effects in the form of contact dermatitis,dry skin and increased sweating.So if the skin biopsy has shown the skin rashes in your case to be due to lamictal then its witdrawl can help you with the symptoms.You can also apply calamine lotion on the skin as it will help in soothing the skin. The half life of a drug means that the time it takes for a substance (drug, radioactive nuclide, or other) to lose half of its pharmacologic properties.

Avatar n tn When topical corticosteroids do not provide relief, sometimes the doctor may consider prescribing some more potent corticosteroids for some period, in adults with may be needed for adults with eczema on the scalp, limbs, and trunk or those with chronic/ lichenified eczema. Newer two topical eczema drugs like pimecrolimus (Elidel Cream) and tacrolimus (Protopic Ointment) are reserved only for cases where corticosteroids have not been effective.
Avatar m tn hi..... I have odd type skin rashes or swelling..... I live in cold county(canada). I get rashes only in the hands(from fingers to wrist only) that too only if go out only. Inside the house,I'm pretty normal. but once I go out(where the temperature will be in minus) I get rashes only in hands which is not covered, rest of my body will be covered with jackets and winter shoes. so which made me to think. whether this rash is because of the climatic change (this sounds really weird).

Avatar m tn I have been getting skin rashes from my early childhood. These Rashes tend to come mostly during the Summer months of the year. They usually seem like a mosquito bite. They first occurs behind the ear, then around the neck, head scalp and spread to the back. Finally i get them even in my face. They are very itchy . They usually seem to have a cycle like 24 hours. They start by afternoon and get intense by evening and disappear while i sleep. The body gets heated up so much during that time.
Avatar f tn They're on my arms, legs, and mid section
Avatar n tn Hi, Bumps that suddenly develop in the face or the body may be due to hives, a skin reaction to allergen, medication or infection. They are pink to red bumps or slightly raised patches of skin which may last for a few minutes or hours. In this condition, it is important to determine and avoid the trigger that could be causing this. Are there other symptoms present? Since the location is at her back, buttocks and thighs, it may also be due to an irritation or possible allergic reaction.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to eczema skin which presents as red, dry itchy flaky rash in response to an allergic reaction. 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).
Avatar f tn I don't know what cause it, but I have rashes in my neck, stomach, arms it started 3 weeks ago. I tried using hydrocortison ointment no help. The rashes comes and goes.Is there something I can use OT that will get rid of the rashes? Can this cause by prenatal vitamins? Or Birth Control pills which I've been taking for so many yrs.

Avatar m tn 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 f tn Hello, It can be due to cold urticaria. Cold urticaria is a chronic, reactive skin disorder. The population most affected is young adults age 18 to 25 years Severe reactions can be seen with exposure to cold water or cold things.This can cause a massive release of histamine resulting in low blood pressure, fainting, shock, and even death. This allergic response can take several forms, from rashes to wheezing, hives, swelling and redness.
