Avatar n tn I have the same condition. I'm a 35yo male. The skin crawling, the feeling like something is biting my skin/a pin poking me, the feeling of a lone hair falling across my face and the itching....it's just crazy. I tried Permethrin Cream thinking it was Scabbies, but I have no visable symptoms. I thought the cream worked after two weeks because I no longer had a sensations, but then a few days my foot was itching like crazy which started the whole effect again.
Avatar n tn I work in the car business I was on the lot for 3 straight years hustling selling 15-20 cars a month just waiting in the heat for customers and the spots that got exposed are the spots I’m paying for today. There is no doubt in my mind it is just from the sun burning my white *** neck. Its a done deal now. This is the blog I needed to find and searched oh so damn hard to find. I always feel hot at night in the ears too. Comes and goes. Sometimes one ear hot one cold.
Avatar m tn I'm assuming I shouldn't as my guess is fluctuations are normal? 2) With my genotype and mutation is that low of a viral count considered abnormal? A lot of stuff I read on that combination tended to show viral load at much higher levels and typically much more damage to the liver. 2) Lastly, in my leisure time, I train regularly in a grappling martial art, which at times involves very close contact with someone else. There is no striking, but accidents do happen.
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 f tn Hello, Without examination, confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be a sebaceous cyst or a cutaneous horn. A sebaceous cyst is a closed sac occurring just under the skin which contains a "pasty" or "cheesy" looking substance called keratin.They may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. A cutaneous horn is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn.
Avatar f tn The condition is called Palmo-plantar keratoderma. It is caused by a genetic mutation of the keratin gene that is responsible for skin cell production. I have tried Vaseline which can be great only for cracks. Other than that it dries the hell out of my hands. I always moisturize my feet with Vaseline and wear 100% cotton socks and rarely wear sandals. The recent struggles have been my hands. I work on a computer all day and it has progressed quickly.
Avatar m tn I am still fighting a small number of Morg type symtoms. The funny thing is that my skin is the envy of everyone . Not a single visible blemish and I look in my teens . In fact , my girlfriend is 20 years old, 18 years younger and nobody would ever know that . 6. I litterally gave up the all out attack for months and just kept up the NAC protocol as basic . 7. I recently ramped up the fight as a pre-caution . I made my own topical NAC / VIT C cream .
244899 tn?1313628239 and all the studies show that a hard punch allows for less chance of mutation....which is why there are a number of drugs in trial now that are solely trying to help overcome this problem with riba absorption and get it to absorb more quickly. Indeally we would would like to see all 3 drugs at peak levels on day 1...not day 30.
886824 tn?1253740254 About 1 in 5,000 people worldwide are affected with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS). EDS is a group of genetic conditions that weaken connective tissues. Connective tissues are comprised of proteins that support bones, skin, blood vessels and other organs, like the heart. As such, EDS usually affects the skin, joints and blood vessel walls. Symptoms can range from mild to severe depending on the type of EDS.
Avatar n tn Hi, If your lesions still persist, it would be best to see a skin specialist for a confirmed diagnosis . Nothing can be said with surety without having a look at the lesions and a proper clinical examination. Let us know if you have any other doubts and also about what the specialist advises. Hope this helps. Regards.
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 m tn There is a possibility that it’s rooted on a genetic metabolic disorder or mutation on the liver or a particular enzyme. This is apparent when you contemplate on TMAU. TMAU patients can confront their problem by eliminating gut of all bacteria which is impossible but can be done to control it. TMAU patients use the 3 methods above to control bacteria which produces the TMA molecule but the actual enzymes that oxidizes TMA is just dysfunctional.
Avatar m tn I can handle whatever it is. I have a wonderful husband, and I have Jesus. I just need to know what it is before all of these Dr.'s make me nuts. Sorry for the book!
534800 tn?1217170959 htm#visualContent I have had Tinea Versicolor for years, the humidity brings it out, it is a type of yeast infection. I have very fair skin which is very sensitive. If it is this, it can be treated by over the counter 1/2 % Selinium Sulfite in SELSUN BLue Shampoo, the prescription strength is 1%. Talk to a Pharmacist, they can be very helpful and very knowledgable.
Avatar f tn there is a split in the medical community over Lyme disease. The Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) takes the position that Lyme is a hard disease to get and an easy one to cure with a couple of weeks of antibiotics; IDSA has held this position for quite a long time.
Avatar m tn My scalp is sore , my memory --- GONE !! OK--- Here is the best part ..... my neuro is the best and wanted to find out whats going on with me. He ran a PANEL of blood work to o check for Vit D dif, Auto immune disorder, and thyroid . ALL in which come back good. So here I am knowing that all of this is NOT IN MY HEAD !
Avatar f tn The reason it feels like a bump is because it's a little pit, and the bump is the pit itself. The whitish/yellowish color is normal, but when it's more brown, it could indicate an infection and you should talk to your doctor about it. Most of the time these require no treatment whatsoever, but they do occasionally require surgery if problematic. If you get abnormal discharge or any swelling of the pit or the side of your face, you should be seen by a docto as these are all signs of infection.
Avatar n tn Prior history of a tick bite or a skin erythema migrans rash then we first do Western blot is the most definitive serology but needs to be confirmed by a better test===> CSF will positive PCR.
Avatar n tn I think my vagina is very very ugly. the labia minora is a darkened color and it is almost 2 times longer that the outer lips. My boyfriend is a lot more experienced than i am. I've only been with one other guy before him. He says that i am "different", but won't admit whether it turns him off or not. But our sex is still great. i've seen pictures and videos of other people's vaginas and it only makes me feel uglier.
529981 tn?1212853666 My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair.
Avatar m tn this is to show you how your doctor is ignorant, there is no need to be a researcher to know hbvdna alone is meaningless, hbsag quant and liver damage are a must before chosing therapy and even if so entecavir is not the best choice, tenofovir is more potent and safe
535822 tn?1443980380 (NaturalNews) An 11-year-old California schoolboy named Colman Chadam has been banished from his school and forced to transfer to another school because he carries the genetic mutation for cystic fibrosis. The boy shows no symptoms of the disease and appears to be in perfect health. He is being banished from his own school solely due to the genetic code he carries. This is being reported by Fox News, Daily Mail and other news outlets.
Avatar m tn Your FT3 is at 29.2% of the range. Again a FAR cry from a minimum of 50%. An increase of T4 medication IF you convert, should cause an increase in your Free T3 level. Since you are so deficient in FT4, I would not expect much of an increase in the FT4 level even with an increase in your T4 dosage as most of the increase will be used to convert to T3.
Avatar n tn The disease is caused by a recessive mutation in a gene located on chromosome 1 and affects both males and females. About 1 in 100 people in the United States are carriers of the most common type of Gaucher disease, while the carrier rate among Ashkenazi Jews is 1 in 15.[2] The disease is named after the French doctor Philippe Gaucher, who originally described it in 1882.
1035252 tn?1427231433 * She's the result of a gene mutation unique to her. If that is the case, Nmachi would pass the gene to her children -- and they, too, would likely be white. * She's the product of long-dormant white genes, passed on to her by her parents, that might have been carried by their predecessors for generations without surfacing until now.
Avatar f tn Hello, My father started having VERY dry, flaky skin about a year ago on his hands. It's pretty severe... it's on his palms, and fingers mostly. He has tried all sorts of moisturizers (because that's what his family doctor told him to do) but, these have not helped. FYI. He is 54, white, 6'4", 350lbs...has a history of blood clots... he is positive for the MTHFR mutation that makes people prone to blood clots... and he is currently on coumadin.
Avatar n tn Ask yourself how much in a day you are thinking about the yawning, which is a reaction to the obsession. A way we cope or recieve temprol comfort. Your all not dieing which if folks were honest enough is the underlying fear that sends so much in motion. Fear of Death is the king of terrors and we as humans just dont like excepting it yet we are forced to think about it. Then the burden of false shame or embarassment which leaves people suffering in silence. Thats to much of a load to carry.
Avatar f tn But I can't help but notice on my own Internet research that there seems to be quite a number of people with this issue. My hopeful thinking is that this is more common than the medical literature suggests and is just misdiagnosed or ignored by most sufferers.
Avatar f tn I also have a regular doctor, a dermatologist,and a urologist. I have had said laser surgery to remove skin abrasions on face, but it is not a permanent thing. At least it was not with me, but it does help. I do have epilepsy as well,and I have skin lesions such as the white skin patches the skin tumors on internal organs as well as angiomyolypomas on my kidneys. I also have the skin tags,and tumors under fingernails and toenails. Although I did not develop those until later in my teens.
