Currently using betaderm cream, I have itchy red skin with small white bumps around nose, mouth, & eyes. Occurs randomly, what is this issue called?

Stop the cream.: First of all, betaderm (which contains betamethasone) is a strong steroid cream that should not be used on the face. Stop using it. Your pimply rash could be due to the cream itself. If it was there before you started applying betaderm, the most common causes are adult acne and rosacea, both easily treatable by a dermatologist, once he or she makes a precise diagnosis. ...Read more

I have an itchy vagina and anus. Raw red skin around anus and red raised bumps around both. Scabies?? Small tear around anus from being constipated.

Yeast infection?: The most common cause of such symptoms is candidiasis (yeast infection, thrush). If so, it seems more severe than average. Herpes might be possible if you are sexually active. Scabies rarely occurs in these locations, but might be possible if you have typical scabies elsewhere (hands, elbows, waist, etc). See a doctor or clinic ASAP for professional diagnosis and treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Show your physician: It's impossible to diagnose a rash without looking at it. Next time it flares up, don't take any medicine for it and don't apply anything topically-- these can change the rash and make it difficult to diagnose. Then have your physician look at it right away. ...Read more

I have an irritating red skin rash (no bumps) on the left side corona of my penis. Its been there for 24 hours and I haven't had sex in over 5 weeks.

Dermatitis: Without and major history of recent sex, etc., it may be a simple contact or irritant dermatitis. Rashes are difficult if not impossible to truly diagnose over the computer, so to get a definitive diagnosis, get the area evaluated so the right diagnosis can be made and then the best treatment can occur for you. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hi, I have been having this rash? There aren't distinct bumps. But the skin under that toenail is really itchy, slight red and swollen. No pain.

Hi, I have been having this rash? There aren't distinct bumps. But the skin under that toenail is really itchy, slight red and swollen. No pain.

Toe Watch: Redness and swelling are the first two steps in the inflammatory cycle, your body's defense program. This means that something is irritating your toe, be it animal, vegetable or mineral. Remove nail polish. Soak the toe in a solution of water and vinegar (2TPS).Start applying a steroid cream mixed with an anti fungal cream twice daily. You still may have to see a specialist if no improvement. ...Read more

I have itchy skin every where no dry skin and when it itches it starts to burn and get red but no bumps or rash what is this?

I have itchy skin every where no dry skin and when it itches it starts to burn and get red but no bumps or rash what is this?

Well: It gets red and itches then goes away, no rash or bumps. It could be a rash or what is called idiopathic urticaria, release of inflammation due to stress. Oddlly enough sometimes an h-2 bkocker like tagamet for the the stomach can help. It may be allergic reaction or something else and I would not avoid seeing a doctor. I would trey Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night and tagamet is pretty cheap. Look up idiop. ...Read more

I have a rash on one armpit, its little red bumps with heads and there is one bump that is very swollen even under the skin. It is painful and itchy?

This Is The Pits...: You may have the beginnings of an infection in that area. If it gets too advanced it could become a real problem that's hard to get rid of and at that point it would be called :hidradenitis suppuritiva" which means a recalcitrant infection of the armpit (s). Best to get it looked at and treated right away. It's not likely to go away on its own and that big lump is a sign of that. ...Read more

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
