Hello. I was wondering if my symptoms maybe signs of hiv. I discovered I had a cut on my neck by spraying perfume and experience burning to the cut. T?

Yikes! And NO: OK, for starters, spraying perfume, which contains alcohol, on a cut, is definitely gonna sting. That you would associate this random event with HIV tells me you are obsessed or at least concerned you could have HIV because of an event or events where you think you could have been exposed. Get tested, read up on how HIV is transmitted, and how to prevent it. Most infected go years without symptoms ...Read more

A scar will be more noticeable if it is a different color from the surrounding skin. Tanning will only darken a scar and typically these tanned scars don't fade. Therefor tanning is not recommended. ...Read more

What happens if you get peppered sprayed in the mouth and then do outercourse and then intercourse because me and my partner are burning now?

What happens if you get peppered sprayed in the mouth and then do outercourse and then intercourse because me and my partner are burning now?

Mood killer: If the problem was immediately noticeable, then it might have been from residual pepper spray on your skin. If so, lots of water (shower or bath) and a little time will resolve this.

I have some burn scars from a house fire. I'm wanting a spray tan, what would be the affect on my scars?? They are 5 years old.

Uneven "tan": Spray tans work by absorption and staining of the epidermis (upper layer of the skin). Unfortunately, deep burns usually heal through scarring and loss of the normal epidermal layer. Consequently, the spray tan may not be absorbed evenly and may result in a "splotchy" or uneven appearance. First and second degree burns can usually heal with normal epithelial skin layers and spray tan evenly. ...Read more

What could cause the awful burning sensation after using sudafed nasal spray?

What could cause the awful burning sensation after using sudafed nasal spray?

Common: A topical over the counter nasal spray is usually an Alpha agonist and causes vaso-constriction of the blood vessels of the nose. This initially leads to a narrowing of the blood vessels and a more patent nasal airway. It is not unusual to have a burning sensation for a few seconds. If the burning lasts longer, you may be using the spray too long. Consult an ENT doctor for a proper diagnosis. ...Read more

My husband got a really bad rash under his armpits from using old spice deodarant, what should he do? He used the deodarant stick and also the body spray and his rash resembles burns and is very sore and painful.

My husband got a really bad rash under his armpits from using old spice deodarant, what should he do? He used the deodarant stick and also the body spray and his rash resembles burns and is very sore and painful.

It: It is possible that this is a contact dermatitis due to allergy from a substance such as fragrance or preservative in the deodorant. I would avoid that deodorant and consider using a mild topical Hydrocortisone cream in the area. If not improved in a few days, consider visiting a dermatologist for diagnosis and to discuss treatment options and possible skin allergy testing. I hope that helps. ...Read more

I feel I have skin allergy under arm whenever I use body sprays I feel the burning sensation and also itchy. What is the reason and cure?

Your allergist or dermatologist can test you to the most common culprits, and give you a list of chemicals to which you're allergic. You can then take this list with you when shopping, to make sure that the products you buy do not contain these chemicals, so you won't have this problem and have to throw them out. ...Read more
