Hives itch: Rashes are difficult to describe in words. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine a red spots rash to see what it might be. Sometimes rashes are related to medications, but many times they are not. For unusual rashes, a skin biopsy may be done by a dermatologist. Other causes include viral infections, allergies and autoimmune reactions, chemical irritants, bug bites, etc...

Difficult to tell: Skin issues are very difficult to diagnosis without actually seeing and touching the lesion. Occasionally, doctors may even need to biopsy or culture the lesion to make a determination. Best to see you family doctor or dermatologist to get you the best answer.

No.: You can get infection at the site of hair follicles, but you cannot get sores vaginally. You need to be seen by a doctor who can check your herpes viral titers.

What are some complications of laser eye surgery?

Dr. Andrew Shatz
Ophthalmology 26 years experience
Very Few: While laser eye surgery (lasik, prk) is very safe, there can rarley be complications that may affect vision. Most commonly, the eye may not achieve perfect vision, and an enhancement may be needed later. Dry eyes can occur and last for several months, and small abrasions may be present for a few days. More rarely, surface skin can sometimes grow under the flap, causing blurred vision.

See her doctor: Use of medications like Ibuprofen (advil/motrin) or naproxyn (aleve) started at the onset of her period may help decrease her symptoms. Have your sister see her doctor about other options to improve her menstrual cycles, .

What would cause my son's ear to bleed slightly after having swimmers ear?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Inflammation: Is the cause of swimmers ear. The skin gets wet and boggy and inflamed and it could bleed from that or if he picks it at all it could bleed. If he had a middle ear infection as well and the eardrum perforated it could bleed. None of these are terrible problems. If you are concerned it is always a good idea to have it checked out.
