I have a quarter sized red circle on my breast came a week ago. Its not raised, no texture, not itchy, spider veins coming off it. Not ring worm?

Irritation?: Dermatitis is a red circular rash. It could be that. You can try Hydrocortisone 1% cream 3 times a day for a week. If that doesn't work then you should be seen to find out what it is. Ringworm is itchy and raised, so that is not likely in your case. ...Read more

I been taking clindamycin for two days now I'm starting to get streaks of red itchy lines feeling as if it is a vein?

I been taking clindamycin for two days now I'm starting to  get streaks of red itchy lines feeling as if it is a vein?

Show a doctor now: Red streaks could indicate an 'uncontrolled' infection - such as if the clindamycin is not strong enough or the infection is resistant to the drug. Alternatively, if you have itchiness - it could be a drug rash. The best way to decide is to show this to a doc. I would call the prescribing doctor now, and/or send pics to Health Tap so someone can give you an answer now. These things can worsen BTW. ...Read more

The veins in my wrist are extremely itchy. Why; some sort of allergy?

The veins in my wrist are extremely itchy. Why; some sort of allergy?

Is having a prominent vein in the breast, itchy & swollen sometimes a bad thing?

Is having a prominent vein in the breast, itchy & swollen sometimes a bad thing?

Sometimes: Normally we would not expect the veins in the breast to hurt or be swollen. However, a swollen painful vein could be nothing more than enlargement during the menstrual cycle which doesn't apply to you if you have had a hysterectomy. It could also be due to irritation of the veins in that area or even to a clot forming in the veins in the breast but this also is not common. F/u with your gyn md/. ...Read more

I hv pop up a vein on my forehead left side,no headache no pain but once I touch it gets bit itchy ?

I hv pop up a vein on my forehead left side,no headache no pain but once I touch it gets bit itchy ?

Normal vein: Sometimes you will have these veins that will pop up and then they will go down again as well. They usually are nothing bad and do not cause that much of a problem. They seldom cause any severe pain but they do get itchy due to the skin being stretched and the blood flow in the area. Just ignore unless it causes a lot of pain or drains. Good Luck. ...Read more
