Folliculitis?: Superficial skin infections usually are due to common skin bacteria, sometimes staph or strep. Surgical wounds can increase skin bacterial growth which might persist after healing, so conceivably related to the mole removal. But this is a common condition regardless of past surgery and that makes no difference now in prevention or treatment. Try antibacterial soap, see a doctor if nothing changes. ...Read more

I'm having symptoms of bloated stomach , rash under breasts and back , terrible acne on face and just a achy body. What is this?

At least 3 issues: Your physician needs to manage your acne. The rash under your breasts may simply require good skin care. Aches need to be evaluated -- one problem that's often missed nowadays is dietary calcium and/or vitamin D deficiency. Obviously we can't make the call here, but we can wish you the best -- and urge you to take a proactive approach to your own wellness. Best wishes. ...Read more

Chronic chest,back acne, phlegm,often inner ears itch,pimples start to arise in abdomen, throat check shows lumpy round epithelial,What's the issue?

Different issues: Acne rosacea, and acne vulgaris are usually caused by propionic bacteria. However there may be folliculitis resulting from inspection of the hair follicles by normal flora/bacteria on the skin, which can be secondary infection resulting from staphylococcus species. On the other hand, throat infection is usually cause by streptococcus or Staphylococcus species, which are different mechanisms. ...Read more

Could changing acne products actually lead to rashes or more acne?

Could changing acne products actually lead to rashes or more acne?

Sometimes: When you switch products for your acne, often you will experience a worsening of your acne until your skin has a chance to acclimatized to the new product. This can be frustrating. Also, most acne products are drying so switching products might mean you are now using something "more drying" than before. This would give you a reaction/rash. The key is to go slow when switching regimens. ...Read more

I used benzoyl peroxide10% for acne for 5 days it gave me red rashes with swalloen skin is it normal? Will the marks fade with time? plz help

Not normal: Some people have local skin reactions with the use of a benzoyl peroxide. The red rash & swelling is not normal. I would stop the medication & call your doctor. As far as "marks" heal, it would depend on how bad the reaction is & how well you heal. Usually there shouldn't. ...Read more

Need doctor's help! will mupirocin be used on acne and rashes?

Need doctor's help! will mupirocin be used on acne and rashes?

Terrible choice: This is an over-the-counter antibiotic. It will do little for acne except encourage bacterial resistance; you should be using something scientific like topical benzoyl peroxide plus if needed prescription-strength medication from your physician. It's worse than useless for contact dermatitis, eczema, and if you self-treat an undiagnosed rash, you ignore possible serious illness at your own peril. ...Read more
