Common Questions and Answers about Skin rashes kids


Avatar m tn Are the two of you describing the Riba rash or telaprevir rash? I thought your were responding to westcoastgy's description of telaprevir rash, but then wasn't sure. I am going through the tough second month of rash over most of my body and I'm wondering if I might have both going on. Any more thoughts? I have read a lot of threads on the "rashes" and can't come to a conclusion. I know that we all can have different reactions and sides, but I can't help trying to figure it out.
Avatar f tn The first couple rashes were the worst for both my kids, now they are not that bad. My son is potty trained and he doesn't really break out anymore, sometimes he says my butt hurts and a little redness in his butt. All the peds say no its diaper rash but i cant help think it may have been something I passed on to them when I delivered them!
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 I'm 21 weeks my skin just gets red but no rashes. Its really irritating!
Avatar n tn Hi!!! I still have the same rashes that I had while I was on tx. and I've been off tx since Nov!!!! I hope you can find the "culprit" soon. I also was put on a "pack" of predisone that you take some many the first day...and then less the next day...and so on and so on! I was "seeing" when I dozed was like I saw a cat...thru a screen....etc. My 80 yr old neighbor, just happened to come to check on me...
Avatar n tn My skin is itchy, and small flakes only on face, I thought it could be winter skin itch but my head always feels like bugs are in it but there arent any. This is on my face, my chest, my legs, on my eyebrows,my back, sorta all over, but especially on my head and around my eyes.
Avatar f tn After you get her clean make sure her bottom is silky dry, you can even use a hair dryer on a cool setting to get the skin nice and dry. Apply the Lotrimin cream (you can use it 3-4 times per day) and then if you'd like you can use a thick layer of a barrier cream (like desitin, triple paste, balmex, etc) over top of the Lotrimin to create an extra moisture barrier.
Avatar f tn Base her like you would cover chicken to fry. In between changes let her air out for a couple of minutes. Rashes feed off of moisture. So after using the wipes pat her dry with a towel. If the rash is bad and she blisters up. Then instead of wipes, rinse her bottom off with warm water. This will prevent irritating her skin more. The docs will give her meds just call them.
Avatar n tn I mean, I just can't think of any changes that have happened over the last few days. But about 2 days ago around 7PM my skin started itching on my arms. It eventually went away but woke me up again around 2 with my hands and legs itching. Ever since, I'll get spots on my arms, legs, neck, face, ears, almost anywhere that just itch like crazy. Sometimes I get a little bump but it only lasts for about 15 minutes or so and then goes away.
545538 tn?1295995617 I've done this and it helps with the itching but I've noticed the skin inside my ears is dry and flaky. Also, my lips are really chapped. This is NO big deal, but I'm kinda wondering since so many people have bad rashes, etc. on tx maybe where the skin is thinest, the tx causes problems?
867954 tn?1356904463 While there I always kept my jeans on, never shorts so nothing touched the back of my thigh, nor did my Aunt I stayed with have any known skin issue. My eating habits were about the same as home. I came home and started on Swanson Health Products "Fat Burner" which has B6 and Chromium. After night one I had an itching on the back of my left thigh, but the sensation of the itch wasn't so strong until I touched it...
Avatar n tn In the last week I have started to experience compulsive scratching. Rashes have occured on my upper arms around the elbow areas, both elbows I have scratched so they are now flaking. A patchy reddish rash occurs both in this area and around my inner thighs. Was scratching my face in the early days of this condition however, this has slowed up. Am now scratching lower ankle areas, and my fingers and hands!!
Avatar n tn Hi For several months I have been getting this weird sensation that my skin is crawling. This happens just behind my right shoulder blade in exactly the same place every time. It generally happens for no reason that I can fathom. It is a sort of itching sensation and then a sensation that there is something crawling under my skin. When I rub it with my fingers it disappears for a while but inevitably it returns within a few minutes. There is no pain involved.
Avatar n tn that's is most likely not skin cancer at all. it sounds like tinea versicolor possibly. google that term and look at the images. if that's what you have it is a fungal infection that is often times caught in tanning beds. that is absolutely not the only place people catch it, but common. and it is very very common on the chest and back. easily treatable. you'll need a prescription. skin cancer comes by way of scaly sores, weird bumps , lesions etc.
Avatar n tn However, in the past 2 to 3 months i have developed rashes on my face. Little small rashes some look like pimples some look like blotches but they are all for the most part dry patches in texture and some by my eyelids are flaky. This problem is only occurring on my face. The problem now is that my face burns. If i sweat it burns, if I put lotion on it it burns, not just a little but enough to make me extremely flustered.
Avatar f tn ive researched it but cant seem to figure out what it is and now im worried becouse it seems to be spreading but only on the skin in and around my tattoo. these spots look like if you had a mosquito bite that you never stopped scratching. my skin around it seems to feel a little thicker and kind of numb. they are flat and not bumpy. anyone have anything like this or any idea about it.
252492 tn?1205612898 I've got a negative test out to 7.5 months -- but I still have the rashes and now an ugly ringworm on my wrist. I can't help but freak out all over again. I go to the rheumatologist on Monday for the swollen lymphnodes. Anyone read anywhere that ringworms are bad signs? I've *never* had one before.
Avatar n tn Hi, Hi, Eczema is a persistent skin conditions that presents with swelling, dryness and recurring skin rashes which may itch or bleed. There is no known cure for eczema, thus treatments aim to control the symptoms: reduce inflammation and relieve itching. However, it is difficult to diagnose without direct examination of your eyelid. It will also help if you have this checked by an eye specialist or opthalmologist for further evaluation. Take care and keep us posted.
140622 tn?1190102529 It cured my hair by making 80% of it fall out and it cured my skin by giving me mega skin rashes and things that are still resolving. OY VEY. But in the course of life...the hair DOES grow back better than ever and the rashes with the help of a good dermatologist are resolving. And these problems are NOTHING compared to liver I figure it's stuff we have to deal with for now. Plus - I'm LOVING all my beautiful wigs...I don't know WHY it took me SO LONG to get them.
Avatar n tn I havent heard of a hemmheriod skin tage before.I have known other people with regular skin tags that looked like moles that had them removed. They didnt say it much.I guess if it's in the anal area it may be a bit more painful though.
750120 tn?1252458630 I was so tired that I think I slept through most of last summer and now at forty-six weeks, I'm tired but not like at the beginning. Skin rashes with blisters, mouth sores--mouth is still sensitive to anything the least bit spicy including toothpaste, couldn't eat much at first and lost weight, rages, weeping, pains in my legs, aches all over, thinning hair...etc., etc. The good part was that the sx didn't come all at once lol.
Avatar n tn is the lay term for skin fungus--no worms involved. If your family's rashes are all related--likely but not certain--the probable cause would be fungus caught from the dog. Most fungus comes from soil, not pets, but animal fungi can be more inflamed and harder to treat. Harder, but certainly not impossible. First, each of you (and the dog) should have scrapings and cultures done to establish the diagnosis.
Avatar m tn I have been experiencing a horrible skin rash that covers most of the trunk of my body, and extends down extremities. It has been flaring up during summer and after swimming in my pool. It has been getting progressively worse. I have had Hypothyroidism for years and have been taking (varying dosages of) Levoxyl and/or Synthroid. Most recently at .150 mgs. A recent blood test shows that my TSH level is now at 50.4.
Avatar n tn To decribe more when i retract foreskin like on the other side theres yellowish.circles.verysmall.packed together almost just little spaces. All over my skin id say i got 20 littlecircles.. Man ive got lots of things on mind and i want kids and i want a life one day. Please.. help me. Im a guy by the way ifu didn't notice yet,, This discussion is related to <a href=''>uncircumcised penis problem</a>.
Avatar n tn The pain doesn't feel very deep either, it is just on the skin. Now I don't know if this is related to the strange skin sensitivity or not but about 4 days ago I started feeling this really weird sensation behind my left eye. It almost feels like I have to strain to move my eyeball to the left and when I do, I kind of have a dizzy feeling. I know this all sounds really weird but I feel like I have started to fall apart since the new year rang in!
Avatar n tn I cannot itch it better, but this is what my skin screams for. I feel like I could take a knife and cut off the top of my skin so that I can get to the actual itch. I wonder if it is stress related in any way. I don't have any "known" stresses at this moment, but maybe there is something. It has been about one hour now and the burning is subsiding a bit. Any help on this would be great. by peepot, Jan 23, 2004 12:00AM help!!!
427258 tn?1266448842 Let them know you're pregnant and are worried it could be Fifths Disease or chicken pox (especially if you've never had chicken pox). Kids also get heat rashes during the summer. But those dots are tiny and usually pink to red. These look more like chicken pox bumps to me!
