Burning rash on abdomen after bf cums on it?

Burning rash on abdomen after bf cums on it?

Dermatitis: Likely a dermatitis (skin irritation/inflammation) as a result of the exposure to the semen. It should resolve on its own; an over the counter corticosteroid can help with discomfort and redness. Otherwise, it's probably best to avoid skin exposure to the semen, as there is obviously an adverse reaction to it. ...Read more

My baby has a red rash on abdomen and upper back, not raised. He seems fine, not irritable. We introduced oatmeal today, can this be cause?

My baby has a red rash on abdomen and upper back, not raised. He seems fine, not irritable. We introduced oatmeal today, can this be cause?

Possibly: You may want to keep a calender of food offerings & the events that come up in the day or days afterward.This might be a food rash or something unrelated. The intensity is not worrisome if the child seems fine. You might exclude the oatmeal for a month and offer again. If the rash returns you know it is related & can nix (permethrin) it for sure. If not, then you won't have to avoid it. ...Read more

17 month old in day care, red spotty rash on abdomen and back, spreading to arms and legs. Temp 39.4 (17 days ago), think that was hand foot mouth?

17 month old in day care, red spotty rash on abdomen and back, spreading to arms and legs. Temp 39.4 (17 days ago), think that was hand foot mouth?

Unlikely: HFM can have spots/blisters in these locations.However, the presentation usually starts with small blisters in the back of the mouth, followed by distinctive blisters (oval and grayish) located in other sites.The fingers/hand/wrist are common as are the foot and ankle.The peri-anal region is also common. The rash you describe is non specific and could have been many things,HFM is unlikely. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage 3 months and now I have developed a rash on my stomach, hands, feet, legs, everywhere! could it possibly be puppp? Also 13 days late.

I had a miscarriage 3 months and now I have developed a rash on my stomach, hands, feet, legs, everywhere! could it possibly be puppp? Also 13 days late.

Not Pupps: Pupps is a condition that occurs in the late third trimester and it resolves spontaneously almost immediately after delivery so this would not be a cause of your current rash. A dermatologist or primary care doctor would be a good place to start of evaluation. If you are late for your period consider doing home pregnancy test. ...Read more

33 weeks pregnant, top of belly broke out in a very itchy red welt rash, allergy,or normal pregnancy symptom? I do not think it is PUPPP rash

33 weeks pregnant, top of belly broke out in a very itchy red welt rash, allergy,or normal pregnancy symptom? I do not think it is PUPPP rash

Hard to say: Being pregnant does not protect you from getting a skin rash and in fact makes you more likely to get strange skin rash. It is however not normal. If it is a raised welt which goes away after a few hours, then consider taking an antihistamine. There is no way to tell at this time whether this is from an allergic reaction or not unless you have noted such an association (food , pet etc) ...Read more

I think I have enterovirus- headache, mild congestion, localized rash on belly that lasted two days.Should I get tested to see if this is what I have?

I think I have enterovirus- headache, mild congestion, localized rash on belly that lasted two days.Should I get tested to see if this is what I have?

Diarrhea???: You forgot the main symptom of enter overall infection---- ie GI symptoms. Anyway, testing for it will not change course of action and management. Sounds like some sort of viral infection ( even if not enterovirus!). All viral illnesses run 7-10 day course--- with or without treatment. Just keep yourself well hydrated. ...Read more

Abdominal rash after surgery?

Allergy most Common.: Always best to inform your surgeon with these types of problems after surgery. Often rashes are allergic reactions secondary to medications used around the time of surgery.

I've been treating an abdominal rash that seem to be ringworm with OTC clotrimazole for three weeks, it doesn't seem to have changed much. What next?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. Since you did the appropriate treatment based on your judgement and it did not work, it would be prudent to see your doctor now. ...Read more

Have a red itchy skin rash on belly and arms?

Rash: Rashes are difficult to diagnose without being seen. Is it flat, pebbly, blistery? How long present? How large an area involved? Any contact with poison ivy personally or a pet?

Cysts are common: It is very normal for wome to develop a cyst from time to time. Most resolve within 6-8 weeks and do not require surgery. For some cysts can be painful. Others do not even know they have a cyst. A rash is unlikely to be related to an ovarian cyst. ...Read more
