My husband has Red inflamed Skin blotches on his face, he has had it before. When I change the Shampoo then usually it happens. Something OTC?

Hives: This sounds like a somewhat serious reaction -and I would try to get more information about it. It's possible he is allergic to something in the shampoo, although I would want to know all his exposures. Unfortunately, allergy can become worse with the next episode. Do you know if this time it was worse than before? He should see an allergist or reach out to a doc here on health tap for better care ...Read more

Very red inflamed skin w endless acne cysts for 15 yrs. Sometimes 20+ cysts in face at once. Finally clearing. Could this be from bigger health issues?

Very red inflamed skin w endless acne cysts for 15 yrs. Sometimes 20+ cysts in face at once. Finally clearing. Could this be from bigger health issues?

See a dermatologist: Your acne is hormonal. Do you have normal menstrual cycles? Birth control? Some birth control makes acne better, some make it worse. Spironolactone at 100mg a day is probably where you should be. If not responding after a few months, isotretinoin orally for 20 weeks will rescue you. No acne pills should be used if you are pregnant. ...Read more

I have many pores & looking red skin, as well as smothless, how can I get rid of holes from my face.

I got severely sun burned (red skin) last weekend on my face and body. Other than future prevention how can I counter premature aging from this? It happened, with much regret, I'd still like to work on a solution as I'm concerned about my skin.

I got severely sun burned (red skin) last weekend on my face and body. Other than future prevention how can I counter premature aging from this? It happened, with much regret, I'd still like to work on a solution as I'm concerned about my skin.

Future exposure: What is done is done and you need not worry about one episode of skin burn. Do take care to prevent recurrences. Wear protective clothing and use sun screen when expecting exposure to sun.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Scared for HIV exposure. Red skin under the head of my penis. No other symp. Possible exposure was 5 wks ago. Rash wouldn't just show up now, would it?

Scared for HIV exposure. Red skin under the head of my penis. No other symp. Possible exposure was 5 wks ago. Rash wouldn't just show up now, would it?

This is not HIV: HIV does not announce itself as a rash on your penis in any case. Chances are that this is a minor hygiene problem or perhaps mild allergy to clothing or detergent. If it stays around for 2 weeks or more, get it seen, or if it's painful, get evaluated now for possible herpes. ...Read more

Day 1 white head pimple on lip line pop it with little white fluid day 2 just red skin, day 3 nearly healed - herpes or just my anxiety of herpes?

Anxiety?: From what you describe, it doesn't sound like a herpes infection. If it were, by the way, popping it would just make it spread more. When in doubt, it would be better to just leave it alone or seek a professional evaluation and advice\treatment. ...Read more

Partial ring of red skin just below the head of my penis. It doesn't itch or hurt at all. No stds. I'm circumsized. Irritation from masturbation? Other?

Foreskin Foresight: That's probably the margin where the foreskin was removed during your briss...mazel tov...So any kind of repeated friction could irritate that area. Yes possibly from masturbation, rough sex, a bottle of herring, an empty milk bottle, a sock, a baseball mitt or even a piece of liver (just ask Portnoy).I wouldn't worry too much unless it gets infected & hurts a lot. In that case, I'd lay off the herring. ...Read more

Have sensitive and slightly red skin on my cheeks after using 0.2% betamethasone valerate cream on face to get rid of an excezma like break out?

Have sensitive and slightly red skin on my cheeks after using 0.2% betamethasone valerate cream on face to get rid of an excezma like break out?

Stop using it.: Betamethasone is a strong steroid cream that should not be used on the face. Short-term it will cause sensitivity such as what you experienced; long-term it can cause "rebounds", where the rash comes back with a vengeance when you stop using it, or even rosacea. Try an otc Hydrocortisone cream to get rid of the rash, and if that doesn't work, see a dermatologist. ...Read more

When exercising: clogged ears, raised heart rate, hard eyes, pulsating neck and head, red skin blotches on face, feels like walking on air why?

When exercising: clogged ears, raised heart rate, hard eyes, pulsating neck and head, red skin blotches on face, feels like walking on air why?

? physiologic: During exercise the heart rate, blood pressure, and cardiac output increase and can cause the ears to seem to be "stopped up" and cause the pulsations in the neck. Blood flow increases to the skin to help eliminate heat that the body is generating (flushed face). I suspect you may be hyperventilating to some degree and that causes numbness and tingling around the face, arms and legs. ...Read more
