How do you treat indian fire rash?

Indian Fire: Indian fire rash is a bacterial skin infection. This rash almost always begins as a small-sized red bump on the skin that is similar to a blister. This then grows and spreads over a larger area of the skin. As it spreads, the indian fire rash turns into a plaque or crust covering and is red, white and golden in color. Antibiotics are the treatment of choice. Anither name is impetigo.

See dermatologist: Antihistamine is not going do anything for this type of rash especially when burning and not itching is the issue. A dermatology consult would be your best bet.

RASH FACE & SHOULDER: DO YOU TAKE ANY MEDICATIONS? PRESCRIPTION OR OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDS? ANY NEW ONES? ANY CHANGES IN YOUR SOAP OR WASHING DETERGENT? IF THIS PERSISTS PLEASE SEE YOUR PCP OR A DERMATOLOGIST. BEST LUCK.

I have a sever rash under my arms, my arpits are raw and feel as if on fire. What could be the cause of this and how do I make it go away?

I have a sever rash under my arms, my arpits are raw and feel as if on fire. What could be the cause of this and how do I make it go away?

Skin Infection: This is very common and it is also very common for both underarms to become involved. It usually starts off as a yeast infection but turns into a bacterial skin infection secondarily. One must stop deodorant and anti-persperant during the infection and most likely will need prescription medications to get this healed.

I have a rash that is only on the back of my hands, not itchy just a little sore and basically feels like it's on fire almost all day long. What is it?

Allergy? Chapped?: I suppose this could be allergy to a soap? In winter could be chapped from the cold and dryness. Could be an allergy to something you contacted. If this is soap allergy would obtain some neutral soap like neutragena which will not remove any more oil from skin. If you want to try a moisturizer, get one without fragrence and one that is hypoallergenic. Best to show this to your primary doctor.

Red vesicular rash: 18 year old with painful burning vesicles on arm. Get a full medical history and in person physical exam ASAP. You can try a consult in your area as well. If the rash is itchy (pruritic) and painful you need to give more history. The differential is large and it could be anything from zoster to contact dermatitis to chiggers or a reaction to insect bites, bedbugs, or scabies. A picture=1k words.

Half way?: If the rash does not cross the midline of the body, then it may be shingles. Contact your doctor to check it out since the severity and duration of the rash, even if it happens to be shingles, can be reduced with prompt Rx with an antiviral drug.

Vomiting: It sounds like you may have had a viral illness and the rash is due to the virus. However not having seen the rash it is difficult to tell. With you being on BP needs, I recommend an evaluation by a physician to make sure you are not dehydrated & to R/o other causes for vomiting. Take care.

Could be shingles: (: Even though herpes zoster/shingles is uncommon in younger people your age, it can happen. The pain comes first; then the blistering rash can occur a few days later. The burning nature of your pain raises suspicion for this. See your doctor ASAP; anti-viral medications may be useful to shorten the course/reduce your symptoms. Best wishes:)

Itching: Where is the itch all over? Or near the bites? Those fire ant bites can itch quite a bite and as the dose of steroids is tapered down you will start feeling them more. Doubt your itching is from the medication. Try to take an antihistamine to see if it helps.

Molluscum: Molluscum contagiosum is a viral skin infection that causes raised, pearl-like papules or nodules on the skin. The virus can spread through contact with contaminated objects, such as towels, clothing, or toys. Cantharidin, commonly called "beetle juice, " is the most common solution used to treat the lesions. Tretinoin cream or Imiquimod cream may also be prescribed.
