Can kidney disease or low cortisol levels cause excessive sweating of the face & scalp/head? It happens even in cold weather. Any ideas? Thanks
Yes: In some associated way yes you can get these symptoms from low cortisol and kidney dysfunction.
Excessive sweating of the face and head. I have underactive thyroid and kidney disease. What could cause this sweating only on my face and head?
Hormone excess?: Face and head sweating is more common in women that are taking hormones. It can be from excess sympathetic tone or from volume changes being monitored by internal pressure receptors as might be your case with renal disease. Check hormone levels and consult with your nephrologist or endocrinologist. This link may help but is complicated http://jap. Physiology. Org/content/100/5/1692.Long.

Ana320 homogeneous, sed rate 5, CRP 5, skin rash from sun, hx. 1996 of ana80, CMV igg58, EBV igg>90, liver and kidney cysts, mild splenomegaly?
No simple answer: A postive ANA is not a true marker of disease. Your photosensitivity may be a sign for Discoid lupus. I would suggest seeing a Rheumatologist fresh, and let them perform a full history and physical and not just test. The probability of a severe disease with normal ESR and CRP is lower. They are nonspecific but can be increased in most rheumatological disease. See a good MD, a full exam and historySee 1 more doctor answer
16 days of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) sulfa800mg / trimeth160mg. 44 age male 150lbs. Incredible abdominal, kidney pain. Skin red rash. What can I do/take to counter?
See your doctor: Your symptoms may represent an allergic reaction to the sulfa component of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). This allergic reaction may also affect the kidney and cause kidney injury and hence, it is important that you see your doctor soon. I am also unclear as to why you would be taking Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for such a prolonged period of time.
I've been feeling like a rash on my leg and now it spread to my lower back, it is under the skin and very uncomfortable when I touch it. I can't see it?
See Dermatologist: It is nearly impossible to make a diagnosis of a skin eruption without looking at the area. Seek help of a dermatologist in your area.
I have a skin irritation or a rash on my back that is spreading. Is there a cream or ointment I should use? The rash started on my upper back and spread to my lower back
This: This is very challenging to answer without a clinical examination so I would recommend you see a dermatologist. It could be many possibilities, including tinea versicolor (common on the back), eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, folliculitis, fungal infection, or other possibilities. Read more about these conditions at the link below. I hope that helps a little!
I have a patch of skin pain on my lower back. I have no rash but recently had the flu. I also have fibromyalgia. I feel like my back is on fire!!! ?
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:)
I have pains in my hips, lower back & abdomen in am not pregnant my skin is also very sensitive and tender and can be very itchy with no rash?
Pain: Vague symptoms. Hard to determine the diagnosis without physical examination. Pain can be due to an underlying musculoskeletal problem or a somatic manifestation of a psychiatric problem such as depression/fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain can be due to a lot of things. Have yourself checked by a physician. Best wishes.
