Avatar m tn But for a while now my skin has been extremely dry and irritable especially under my arm pits, my hands, in my groin and buttocks area I also have painful stretch marks that won't go away, this has been 3 months and they are still paining me. I also have some red dots on my forehead and have developed acne on my head. I've also had blocked nostrils since that time and people keep asking me if I have a cold.
Avatar n tn The reaction of the tape to the skin is like an allergy and will make a welt-like red sore that can open up into a painful wound. It starts out itchy and get very painful if the tape use is continued.
Avatar n tn I've played lots of sports over the years, so I figured I just got injured and it just needed a lot of time to heal. I just wanted to share my story so that others that read this won't think that they are alone. I'm going to my dermatologist as soon as I get home for summer break. Thanks for the rest of these comments! They really helped!
Avatar m tn spot on his leg. (He is diabetic). It appeared to be a small sore that had a raised scab on it. It was painful to the touch. I put neosporin and a bandaid on it over nite. The next morning it had bled and when I removed the bandaid, something that appeared to be a small stick (size of the end of a pencil lead and about 1/2 inch long) came out and created a hole in hole. Over the next week, the hole became bigger and bigger.

Avatar n tn I also notice that ever since my rash in 2002, I tend to crop up with alot of blemishes on my skin. The worrying thing is that they do not go away, but instead linger indefinitely and make my face seem alittle older. I am not so vain as to care about the aesthetic side, but they do feel abit sensitive to any scratching.
Avatar m tn If it weren't for the color I would not notice them as they do not itch, burn, or cause any pain. This is in addition to my huge rash on my scrotum that won't go away no matter what the dermatologist prescribes. He ended up last time telling me that it was like "red cheeks" and that if I applied nasal spray it would go away for a few hours b/c he said my problem was that the blood vessels were too close to the surface, but I would have the rash forever/wont go away.
Avatar n tn Follow up to Oct 15 posting. The week before October 23 was more painful than before. I think it was because I'd filed down quite a bit of skin before the nightly applications of ACV. So, additionally, although I was prepared for the wart to resurface, I wasn't sure it wasn't a sign that I shouldn't take a break and then come back to in in a few more weeks.
Avatar m tn Fast forward two years, with the problem coming and going over that time. Recently, I began having scabbing that is very painful and will not go away. It was more crusty feeling, and my nasal passages felt very dry. I tried picking them out, they'd come right back. I tried lubricating the areas, using coconut oil, neosporin, aquaphor, non-petroleum based jelly, I even slept with a humidifier on, nothing worked beyond temporary relief.
Avatar f tn I have not been stressed really or changed any part of my routine. What could be causing this? It won't go away with normal pimple cream like I apply to zits or on it's own.
Avatar f tn I wish i knew why this open sore goes away for three weeks then comes back then lasts for three days then goes away. I made a doctors appontment last week while I had the open sore but when it came time for my appointment the cut had healed up completly so i had to cancel my appointment becuase there would have been nothing for the docotr to see. I am going to keep monotoring this problem. hopefully the sore does not re occur again.
