24 y/o F Dxd w/ RRMS. Arm in sun skin turned hot, red, & itchy. Same thing on my chin later but a hive was visible. Super sun sensitive? Allergy?
Not simple: Typically there is not a relationship between RRMS and allergy. However, taking immune modulating drugs (e.g. prednisone) could change that (for better or worse). Are you implying you had symptoms only on one side (one arm) while exposure was bilateral? If so, you might be revealing an autonomic inequality, which might relate to your MS. (PS.

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger.His balls became red after poop & painful on touch.What should I do?
Possible irritation: Poop can often be very irritating to the skin. If the redness is limited to his scrotum following his poop, that is probably the cause. I would wash him with mild soap and water and use a moisture barrier such as vaseline or desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) on the red areas. If the irritation persists, plan on seeing his pediatrician in the morning. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have light Brown Asian skin, recently I went in the sun, jogging + got pigment marks on my skin, now using Sun block but when will marks fade?
Yes, with time: It will take time, may be even a few months for the pigmentation from sun exposure to lighten up. Use sun screen as you have started doing and if feasible, keep the area covered to avoid incidental sun exposure. I would recommend that you take supplemental vitamin D3 at a does of about 2000 units/day. ...Read more
