Recurring skin eruptions in same location on both sides of face.?

Recurring skin eruptions in same location 
on both sides of face.?

Describe these: The term "eruptions" can have many different meanings to different doctors. If you could describe these (flat, elevated, small, large, colored, itchy, tender, pus-filled, and so on) it would be far easier to have some idea of what they might be. The best solution, however, is to have your local doctor take a look at them.

How to rid my face of pimples and blackheads and new eruptions?

How to rid my face of pimples and blackheads and new eruptions?

PIMPLES BLACKHEADS: SOUNDS AS IF YOU HAVE STUBBORN ACNE. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU SHOULD STOP ALL CHOCOLATE FOODS, NO NUTS WHATSOEVER, AND CUT DOWN ON DAIRY PRODUCTS. NOW! WASH WITH AN ACNE SOAP AND APPLY BENZOYL PEROXIDE LOTION 5% ONCE DAILY. IF THIS DOESNT HELP SEE A DERMATOLOGIST. BEST LUCK

Can a fixed drug eruption on penis head stay more than 7 months? Mine is gradually becoming better. All meds stopped.Does sexual activity prolong it?

See below : Diagnosis of fixed drug reaction is based on history, physical exam, and exclusion of other causes of penile lesions. Most common drug classes implicated: analgesics, muscle relaxants, sedatives, anticonvulsants, and antibiotics (sulfa, PCN, tetracycline). Acute Rx: stop drug, topical or oral steroids, antihistamine. Not uncommon to have residual hyper pigmentation after acute lesion resolves.

Marks: Whenever the skin gets inflamed it will heal lighter or darker in color. People with medium skin tones (not extremely white or not extremely black) have the most troubling pigmentary alterations because they are noticeable either way. See your dermatologist to treat your acne to minimize this process.

Bp plus more: Make sure your facewash has benzoyl peroxide. Make sure you use noncomedogenic makeup. Dont use a hard scrub on your face. If that is not helping, you may need prescription medications for your acne so you would need to see a doctor.

I get itchy, pus filled, red-toned eruptions on my face, which then settle as these black spots. How can I stop it? And how to remove black spots?

I get itchy, pus filled, red-toned eruptions on my face, which  then settle as these black spots. How can I stop it? And how to remove black spots?

Facial Eruption: Once a pore becomes clogged, it traps skin oil inside. Bacteria grows in this oil and can cause an inflammatory response in the skin. Acne lesions can be small and hardly noticeable, have a small white or black head, or can appear red with a white/yellow center. Sometimes a clogged pore will become so inflamed that it can lead to larger, more painful lesions called nodules or cysts. See your derm.

Hard lump on pubic mound 2 days. ER= too soon to lance. No head, no heat, tender. Satellite eruptions on butt clearing up. RX= Keflex Scared of MRSA?

Hard lump on pubic mound 2 days. ER= too soon to lance. No head, no heat, tender. Satellite eruptions on butt clearing up. RX= Keflex  Scared of MRSA?

Simple tests: A surface culture and PCR analysis of the local area or skin scrapings would help to identify the presence of MRSA, versus MSSA( multiply-sensitive Staph Aureus), but this needs to be performed by a licensed OB-GYN, who can examine the pubic area for telltale signs of infection and help in your treatment

See neurologist: I don't believe you have shingles with so many areas of the body involved. However if you have painful blisters , it may be a serious condition and a dermatology consult is recommended.

Some people flush: Probably you also flush if you swallow alcohol. So what? You can apply cool water. You can get afrin (oxymetazoline) (or the cheaper generic) and apply a few drops to your face before exercise to constrict the blood vessels.
