Common Questions and Answers about Skin rashes uk


Avatar n tn I had it on holiday and assumed it was heat rash although I have never suffered with it before. But since being back in the Uk im still suffering! Somewhere itches - I scratch it - the bumps come up - then after half an hour they go away. And it will happen one day - at some point in the day each part of my body will itch and come up in a rash. Then I wont itch for perhaps 2 days. This has been happening on my hands, ankles, arms, back, neck, legs and its driving me crazy! Any ideas?
Avatar m tn I have had rashes and dark skin on and around scrotum and inner thigh for last 5-6 years. In the beginning rashes and small cuts used to appear between inner thighs and they would heal themselves but they left dark and loose skin when they disappeared. But for last 2-3 months these rashes and cuts started appearing again in ferocious way and these have extended on testicle skins too. When they appear it itches too much results in small cuts with small blood. i m very depressed.
551343 tn?1506834118 While it is uncommon to develop Lyme rashes late in the disease, it is possible. More common is rashes showing up with antibiotic treatment. This is the site of the doctor featured in Under Our Skin mentioning it part way down this page. You might find other sites as well to convince the person at Porton Down that they are uninformed. (I Googled "Lyme rash after antibiotics")
Avatar n tn Hi I wonder if you can help? I have been experiencing a severe skin reaction after a session of surfing. It leaves the skin on my face and neck (but no where else), extremely red and itchy with some lumps also (mainly on my neck) and I get an exteme burning feeling after about 5-10 mins of being out of the sea. My face will often look as though it is sun burnt but I have been surfing in the UK over New Year and trust me it wasn't sunny!
Avatar f tn But then out of nowhere i felt an itch, i started to scratch it then damn it grew again but now they were on my arms. My skin started to form blood dots on my skin and rashes too. I put alot of alcohol then the itch stopped for a while. I bought anti histamine that night and took one. The itch never came back. But the morning I wake up, i got big bruises all over my thighs.
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 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.
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.
Avatar n tn Also the second symptom is 4 months ago i developed small red rashes on my penis and testaciles externally on the skin this would develop into a blister highly irratable and when scratched it would have a hard centre and clear liquid would come from it but these blisters leave permanent scars. They tend to form in hair folicles and the pattern is a couple a time and when they heal a couple more would develop.
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.
Avatar m tn I'm a 19 near old Caucasian male living in the UK that has problems with my facial skin. This will be quite extensive. Ever since till about age 17, my skin has changed for the worse. I used to have oily skin that looked very nice and was easy to maintain with cleansing the skin twice a day. Even doing so did not require a moisturizer at all. About one year ago my skin turned from oily to dry in a month.
Avatar n tn Wow, 5000iu, I'm in the uk and my doc has only put me on 800iu. Having said that, my skin is completely fine now.
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 m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
937617 tn?1314215791 Hello - Those with FM do have multiple chemical sensitivities so rashes and hives can be a result of this. Your dermatitis on your hands sounds like either a reaction to a substance of some kind or dry weather conditions. Do you wash them frequently or have them in water a lot? Do you live in an area where the climate is hot and dry? Do you garden or anything like that? Try using a pair of gloves when you need to expose your hands to water or any environmental situation...
Avatar n tn I have extremely sensetive skin myself and had to resort to baby lotion and shampoos to keep me from overdrying my skin. Many lotions make the skin oily rather than truly moisturize. Cetaphil is a good lotion, but I use Aveeno baby lotion. It seems to do the trick. What soaps do you use? Dial AB or Dove, ?? ?
Avatar m tn Three days ago I started feeling like whatever this was is now in my skin (I'm certain of it), It's under the skin on my face, my scalp, my back, my toes, and my feet. I can feel it crawling in and out of my anus at times also. Went to the dermatoligist today and of couse he says it's my imagination, some people get it. He's subscribed me some DEXEPIN for depression. :( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up.
Avatar n tn It may work by soothing the skin. Other possibility is of erythroderma.It is a generalized skin disorder characterized by reddening and scaling of the skin and produced by several skin diseases, such as psoriasis, contact dermatitis, drug reactions, and mycosis fungoides (a cutaneous lymphoma). I feel that an examination by a dermatologist will be the best.Other conditions like liver and kidney disorders,diabetes, iron deficiency anemia and thyroid disorders also have to be ruled out.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar n tn 3 months after a possible HIV/STD exposure I have gerealised itching and a red rash, which is not raised or itchy on my abdomen at the bottom of my rib cage. My general practitioner seemed to think it was a herald spot, possibly pityriasis rosea, although it hasn't spread and she seemed vague. I have been extremly worried and anxious for the last 3 months and am wondering if this could have been brought on by this as I have tested negative for STD's and HIV at 3 months.
Avatar n tn Hi, Like most men I suffer with hair between my bum and around mu anus which causes me to sweet and thus suffer from sweet rashes. Can anyone suggest a safe way or product I can use to either permanently remove the hair or trim it so is not a problem.

Miliaria is a common ailment in hot and humid conditions, such as in the tropics and during the summer season.

Avatar f tn clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). These dry rashes can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin.If the symptoms persist then pls get it evaluated from a dermatologist and get a biopsy done. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.

Avatar n tn and no STD or HIV can be transmitted by contact of the penis with hands, breasts, or other skin except genital or anal -- regardless of psoriasis or other rashes. All is well. You don't need testing for HIV or any STD on account of that event.
Avatar f tn I took a oral rapid test about 4 weeks later as I developed a very sore throat red and confirmed oral thrush. I also have had severe migraines (never had) skin rashes and strange indentations from just touching things or even the fabric on my shirt. I don't believe this is edema but I don't know. "just very sensative" I decided to go over to his house and ask him... Before I could he showed me a large rash on his trunk "chest" and dry skin all over.
Avatar f tn I also suffer from almost sensitive skin on both inner thighs, pubic area and lower belly.. if I wear tight clothing it'll irritate the skin and the skin then feels itchy and sometimes bruised but no marks/rashes etc show. I also get slight tingling in the groin area and sometimes lower tummy.. usually at least 10 tingling per day which last no longer than 5 seconds.
Avatar f tn I believe you do need to obtain the testing privately in the UK. Note though that the UK has one of the lowest incidence levels of HSV2. It is quite improbable based on all you describe that you have HSV2. No, there is minimal if any virus in bodily fluids that doesn't survive long away from the skin's surface.
454046 tn?1244569193 I looked at the photo -- tough to tell what that is -- may be a skin reaction to some topical used - that's not a scar from surgery, unless the technique in the UK is very different from what I am used to.... If the endo does not know, consider seeing a dermatologist, but in most cases these rashes/etc post-surgery will resolve with time.
