Avatar n tn Hi, I have spots around my eyes they started of as little white spots & are now red & sore. My skin is also really dry around my eyes (even eye creams sting?). What are they & what can I put on them to get rid of them. They look horrendous.
Avatar f tn for a bout 2 years now i have had dry skin around my eyes - its red and scaly and sore the doctor has given me creams and none of them work - the skin is scaly and inflamed all at the same time anyone had this before?
Avatar n tn dry and itchy on the outside skin around my eyes. I didn't have trouble with my vision or inside of my eyes, at that point. About the 5th month of the meds, the itchy skin and very dry skin was still a problem. My GI prescribed Elidel cream, which helped somewhat but not completely. I also broke out with the rash other places on my body that was a real bother.
Avatar n tn I have the same issue: tiny red bumps around both eyes - sometimes many and sometimes a few, sometimes itchy and sometimes not, sometimes sore. I've had it since July. They also sometimes appear in the creases around my mouth and around my nose. I have no history of allergies, and am generally really healthy. Help!
Avatar f tn Out of the blue, this year I have had three bouts of red, puffy, dry skin around my eyes. It occurs on the inner edge of the eye, next to my nose and flares up above and below the eye. The skin goes red, very dry, puffs up and lines form. I have tried a number of things but Vaseline petroleum jelly so far has worked the best. It doesn’t seem to “depuff” my eyes very quickly but rehydrates the skins and the swelling eventually reduces (about 2-4 days).
Avatar m tn I have alot of health related fears and the main one is HIV I have just noticed red flaky skin around my eyes and eyebrows, it is quite red and sore. I am walk to work everyday in blizzard cold winds, and work in a warm heated building and dont get to drink much water. I was wondering is this a common condition in the winter or is it a sign of HIV? i did a google search and got mixed answers.
Avatar n tn "What causes a blackening of skin around the eyes? I am not talking about dark circles under the eyes but a severe darkening of the skin 'between' the eyes. If you place your thumb and forefinger over the bridge of your nose and touch the inner corner of each eye, imagine that all the skin under the pads of your finger and thumb - is turning black. This condition has recently appeared and is getting worse every day. I sleep an average of 9 hours a night....
Avatar n tn My husband has been having skin rashes around his eyes, raised small red bumps, for several months and just won
Avatar m tn It may spread up around the nose, and occasionally the eyes while avoiding the skin adjacent to the lips. There may be more than one cause of perioral dermatitis. One of the most common factors is prolonged use of topical steroid creams and inhaled prescription steroid sprays used in the nose and the mouth. Overuse of heavy face creams and moisturizers are another common cause. Other causes include skin irritations, fluorinated toothpastes, and rosacea.
Avatar m tn im feeling a lot better now but the only thing is, is that i noticed( at week 9 that my skin looks odd , specially on my torso. the skin around my ariolas of my nipples look like they have stretch marks that look dispersed(almost the same color as my nipples just a hint lighter),my left nipple looks more affected by it. and i seem to be more red, like i had a couple of beers at night. i feel i turn red only at night. im not sure if im seeing things or the light is messing with my eyes, idk..
2064241 tn?1331001644 yes my eyes themselves are dry and irritated and sensitive to light but a few days with the contacts out helps that, its the skin around the eyes that just seems to be getting worse and worse ... i just tried the hydro cream this a.m. too to stop the itching it helped ...
Avatar m tn I feel like I'm running a fever all the time and my body temp averages 97.8 ! I can feel an intense heat in my eyes, in the skin on my head, neck, back, and often feel chilled because of this "feverish" feeling. I have noticed my breath feeling hot, but not daily. I've had anxiety for 7 years. At first I worried about it alot, but as time went on my "health" anxiety issues went on to "bigger and better things" :-) Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn Has anyone ever had swollen turbinates with pressure around eyes and swelling under eyes? My left eye has quite a bit of swelling with a purplish tint to it and my right eye has some swelling but not as much as the left. I feel devistated that this has changed my appearance and I was wondering if surgery has helped anyone with this particular problem.
Avatar n tn Its a hard pea-sized bump under my skin, and can be pushed around a bit. I was thinking it was a cyst, but is it normal for it to develop within 8 hours? I normally have a bit of vaginal discharge, but it seems to have increased the past few days. Any ideas for what it might be? I don't think it is an STD because i havent seen my boyfriend since the summer... so haven't had sex since then ( he has been my only partner).
Avatar n tn I have had herpes before, but with this pain I don't get any rash or blisters, just such sore skin. I also can't sit on the toilet especially if its cold. It sounds like if you are run down or stressed the pain comes. Not sure what to do about it though.

Avatar f tn i did ot see a sore on her i looked aroun can a sore be on the inside of vagina a condom was used properly. is it posssible to have more than one expert respond? Vance , waiting patiently. Shoud i go to the clinic right now?
Avatar n tn Hi, Groups of tender small red papules appear most often around the eyes called periocular rash. The surrounding skin may be pink, and the skin surface often becomes dry and flaky.However, i would like to clarify if this sore is not of the blister kind to rule out the possibility of a herpes simplex virus. It is important to keep the area clean and dry. Try to avoid manipulating the area to avoid secondary infection.
Avatar f tn For the last three months he has had reoccurring, sore red and inflamed bumps in different spots on his body. The first time it was a bump on his hand, which then became swollen. Next, it showed up in his eyes, leaving his eyes closed with crust. Now he has three small bumps that are painful on his buttocks, he can not sit down. He has been to Urgent Care 3 different times. The doctor first say it was a spider bite, next it was a bacterial infection and was given antibiotics.

Avatar m tn Hi Doc, I have had a problem with red eyes and dark grey skin color around my eyes since early August. They are extremely red when I awake in the morning or after a long nap, but the redness decreases the longer I am awake. There is no crusting and just a small amount of excess tearing/watering. My vision seems a bit blurry, but nothing very significant. In mid-August I had a brief, low grade fever that abated after five days.
535882 tn?1396580285 i have a cold. runny nose. sore throat, but my eyes this morning were swollen . one more than the other and on the less swollen one the eyelid has a bump in it, . any suggestions? , taking an antihistamine, plus eye drops. allergy, eye drops, plus doing saline nose rinse. ice pack, eyes also itch a little. any suggestion?
Avatar f tn They don't hurt, they're not sore, and they don't itch. They just feel extremely heavy and tired all day long, which could be compared to a burning sensation, I suppose. I'm on allergy medication, don't spend my days staring at a computer screen and I wear glasses that have a prescription that is around a year old. I had a strong bout with anxiety about a month ago and suffered from over breathing/hyperventilating for a couple of weeks. That's been under control for a couple of weeks now.
Avatar f tn I have seen a doctor that works on our campus (I work for a University and my regular doctor was out of town that week), he said it was an allergic reaction to something and told me to use cortisone cream on it. That helped some around my nose and other places, but not the places around my eyes since you can't put cortisone around your eyes. The cortisone did help the places on my face and neck but only for a few days then the rash came back and wouldn't respond to the cortisone anymore.
Avatar n tn I quit that nightshift position 6 months ago, and have taken on a dayshift role, so my sleeping patterns have improved but have seen little improvment with the dark circles and puffiness around my eyes. Often my eyes are sore and ache, and even sometimes when i wake up after a long sleep, they sting and feel very tired and are sometimes even mildly bloodshot. I still do work with multiple screens as i need to for my employment, could that be the problem?
Avatar n tn WOW, we should ALL start a club for people with skin problems around the eyes. I thought I was the only one with this skin condition. Mine started quite a few years ago during the winter and lasted for a couple of months. Somehow it went away on it's own. Then a few years down the line it happened again during the winter and lasted a couple of months and then went away. Well, this past February or March it came back worse then I ever had it.
