Looks like spider bite on top of toes, went away and came back within 2 weeks. Painful, skin peeling, blister like with white pus inside?

Looks like spider bite on top of toes, went away and came back within 2 weeks. Painful, skin peeling, blister like with white pus inside?

Maybe: This could be mrsa. It might not be. As long as you've got no fever, there's no penetrating trauma, it's not expanding, and it's not very painful, it is reasonable to see what it does over the next couple of days. Warm epsom salt water soaks, dial soap and water scrubs, and maybe some topical antibiotic ointment would be my home treatment if the above criteria are met. ...Read more

Chances of one having herpes without any blisters or sores but balanitis on foreskin and penis head?

Chances of one having herpes without any blisters or sores but balanitis on foreskin and penis head?

It's main cause is suboptimal hygiene in the uncircumcised. Symptoms will usually resolve when you rinse (unscented) soap completely off the penis. Low dose OTC topical steroid or anti fungal cream may help. Rarely are other antibiotics needed. USE CONDOMS! ...Read more

I’m a runner and I keep on getting blisters on my one foot. The skin keeps on pealing. Fungi?

I’m a runner and I keep on getting blisters on my one foot. The skin keeps on pealing. Fungi?

Second, blistering can occur from ill-fitting footwear; there could be a point of friction within the sneaker against your foot, and the back-and-forth friction as you run can lead to a blister. ...Read more
