Just came back from a walk and noticed some blisters at the back of my neck and shoulder. They are itchy as well. What should I do?

Maybe nothing: Probably nothing but it could be a contact dermatitis. If they persist, try a local cortisone cream. If they become a bigger problem, see your doctor or a dermatologist.

Is it advised to remove a 1in keloid on my shoulder that has doubled size in the past 3yrs, and there's a new one growing beside (sun sensitive/itchy)?

Is it advised to remove a 1in keloid on my shoulder that has doubled size in the past 3yrs, and there's a new one growing beside (sun sensitive/itchy)?

Try kenalog (triamcinolone) first: If you have not done so already, most would recommend least invasive to most invasive therapy first beginning with pressure and silastic gel sheeting, progressing to kenalog (triamcinolone) injections with possible off label use of 5fu then to intalesional excision with possible post op radiation therapy. Lasers have mixed results.

I have a very itchy shoulder. It results In raised scratch like marks on my back left shoulder?

Uncertain: This could be due to xerosis (dry skin) and scratching. I would start with a good moisturizer. Other possibilities such as an allergic rash are possible, consider seeing your doctor.

I feel like I got an itch under my skin top right shoulder, like when I move it or walk it feels itchy under it, workout injury? Something else?

Possible nerve: If it is an isolated itch with no associated rash it may be related to a nerve irritation. A peripheral nerve which normally performs a sensory function to a specific area of the skin can sometimes malfunction and create an area of intense itching in that area. It is benign but annoying and usually resistant to antihistamines. Other compounded topicals or pressure with taping may help.

Check it out: Diagnosis first. Everything is not fungal. If it is fungal head and shoulder is not as effective as Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo. Try that twice a week for 2 weeks and if see no change see PCP or dermatologist

I have a hard itchy bite on the back of my shoulder. It is in a rectangular shape is can be painful. What bit me?

Who knows?: I am not aware that any type of insect or flying species that sting have a peculiar shape to their sting. The more important point is how do you feel and what does the wound look like? Is it small and red or has it enlarged and infected? If it has enlarged and begin to widen see your doc for the best treatment.

Blisters: There are about 1000 different causes of blisters on the body. Diagnosis of these depends upon the person's history, look of the blisters, and distribution of blisters. Some people actually misinterpret these being blisters when in fact they're little pustules with infection. In short, you've got to see a dermatologist to get a diagnosis.

I had an itchy insect by 3 days ago. 1 day ago I noticed a painful blister. Today the blister seems to have gotten bigger. What should I do?

Lance it: If red hot swollen like a boil then need to lance it with scalpel by a doctor or urgent care and get antibiotics, if can bring it to a head with warm wet washcloths, 10 minutes 3-4x/day till whitehead breaks open or scrub it with washcloth and it drains spontaneously, it may resolve. People think an insect bit them and it is just an infected hair follical. If not resolved this was see a doctor

Please help! Red spot on shoulder, really itchy, then stopped and turned red after I washed with dove. What is it?

Please help! Red spot on shoulder, really itchy, then stopped and turned red after I washed with dove. What is it?

Bug bite?: The most likely cause of a single really itchy spot this time of year is a bug bite. It could also be a focal (or early) allergic contact dermatitis, such as poison ivy. There are many other less likely possibilities. If you are as worried about this as you sound, let a dermatologist take a look and give you a precise diagnosis.
