Salt water soaks: You may try salt water soaks but whatever you do, do not try to squeeze or pop it yourself. Take 1 table spoon of salt to a pint (large glass) of warm (not hot) tap water. Soak a wash cloth in it then let it sit on the "boil" for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times each day. This may help. ...Read more

Non latex bandages cause raised/red skin and lasts for a while after taking off. Can i be allergic to the adhesive or something else?

Probably not: The adhesive is irritating to the skin and commonly causes skin changes such as these. If it disappears within 48 hrs, probably nothing to worry about. Non-latex contact allergy to adhesive is possible and can be diagnosed with testing if the problem worsens. ...Read more

I have a raised red skin blotch on my arm that disappears and comes bacj?

Red skin blotch: Not enough information to guess a diagnosis. Does it come and go in minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years. Is it a single spot? Does it have scale? Or any symptoms like itching or burning? When it leaves can you tell that anything was there? Does it start small and grow or does it appear fully formed right away? These are some of the factors your dermatologist will take into considera. ...Read more

Red bump: This may be a hemangioma which is a benign growth of tiny blood vessels called capillaries. These don't blanch when touched and are not likely to change or disappear. Of course a physician or dermatologist would have to inspect the spot to be sure. ...Read more

I have an itchy vagina and anus. Raw red skin around anus and red raised bumps around both. Scabies?? Small tear around anus from being constipated.

I have an itchy vagina and anus. Raw red skin around anus and red raised bumps around both. Scabies??  Small tear around anus from being constipated.

Yeast infection?: The single most common cause of such symptoms is candidiasis (yeast infection, thrush). If so, it seems more severe than average. Herpes might be possible if you are sexually active. Scabies rarely occurs in these locations, but might be possible if you have typical scabies elsewhere (hands, elbows, waist, etc). See a doctor or clinic ASAP for professional diagnosis and treatment. Good luck! ...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

I have itching in my scrotum with red skin.And whitich scars from infected hair follicles after shaving which was itchy and still.Whats the treatment?

Itching scrotal skin: Hi without seeing the sores I have to guess this is either a fungal infection or a folliculitis (infected hair follicles--usually caused by staph). I would try an over the counter anti-fungal for a day or two unless it is worsening. Then one would need to be seen by a good medical provider. ...Read more

This : This rash could be a few different things. - impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria - either streptococcus or staph. This needs to be treated with antibiotics. - contact dermatitis is skin inflammation. It can be caused by plants such as poison ivy or poison oak or it can be from contact of a chemical or item that a person is particularly sensitive to. This is usually treated with steroid creams or oral steroids. - viral illness such as chicken pox, shingles or herpes can also cause painful blisters on a red base. This can be treated with anti-virals or just needs to run its course depending on the severity of the infection. The best thing to do is to contact his doctor and have him seen, since each possible problem requires different treatments. Good luck. ...Read more
