What are these itchy bumps at my chin area and my jaw area?? they've been there for months! Grows puss, clear, then repeat. Folliculitis? What are they

Folliculitis: Definitely sounds like folliculitis. Try better shaving technique. Make sure to use hot water to open pores and try shaving daily with a sharp blade to prevent curly beard hair from growing back into skin which can set up these types of reactions. Moisturize area after each shave to keep skin healthy. If there are signs of infection might need topical bacterial ointment. ...Read more

Could be fungal: Usually rash that starts around sweaty areas of the body (under the breast, around the groin, etc) are fungal in nature. The medical term is tinea. It is usually itchy as well. You can try over the counter lotrimin (clotrimazole) cream. If you get worse or any concern, then see your private doctor. ...Read more

Your age?: It is hard to tell without you giving us any detail on the history or even your age. Although itching often points to an allergic contact condition (hair preparations especially black hair dye), it may also be from a skin cancer. Best to get them checked especially if you are over age 50. ...Read more

What are these itchy bumps at my cheecks and chin area?? they don't seem to go away. Its been a month?? and my lip line too? B12 defficiency? :- (

See doctor: It is hard to tell what you have from the vague description. If you flush easily, this may be from rosacea. Otherwise contact allergy (shampoo, conditioner) may be a potential cause. These lesions are not a part of vit B12 deficiency. You need to check with your doctor to see what can be done. ...Read more

Here are....: Does your foreskin cover your head of penis? If yes, make sure to pull back foreskin for cleansing with no overuse of soap or physical stimulation and drying daily especially after sex. And see if improving. If necessary, anti-fungal/steroid cream may be used lightly daily for 3-5 days. If not helping, see doc timely for detail.

May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

Will using permethrin only where the itchy bumps are located on my body eliminate the scabies? It worked last time. Head to toe seems overkill no?

Will using permethrin only where the itchy bumps are located on my body eliminate the scabies? It worked last time. Head to toe seems overkill no?

Not overkill: Scabies is not like a simple mosquito bite. Scabies is an infestation of the skin by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei.
Transmitted by close person to person contact or by fomites (clothing, linens). To prevent transmission treat with Permethrin 5% cream. Apply to all areas of the body from the neck down and wash off aprox 8-14 hours later. Simultaneous treatment of close contacts advised. ...Read more

Itchy bumps inside of my vagina mainly where I shave they look like they have a red head on some of them does this sound like herpes? I am on my period and it does feel kinda sore there are multiple

Unlikely: This sounds more like irritation from shaving. I often recommend not to shave as skin in this area is extremely sensitive, and prone to rash and blister-like lesions. Usually herpes has bumps that are clustered/bunched together, and the bumps look like they have water in them almost. Usually this is very painful but not always. I would go get a physical exam. ...Read more

If: If patient has a new rash with a headache, then consulting their physician would be the next appropriate step. There are multiple, multiple conditions that can cause rash. The concern with rashes is that it could just be a skin process, but other processes must be considered. It is very difficult to diagnose a rash online, so a medical evaluation is typically warranted. ...Read more
