I am 16 and really sensitive to sun and have developed redness on my skin with blisters and red visible veins. It pains a lot.Do I have rosacea?

Derm: Many of us have sensitive skin and have to be extra vigilant in protecting our skin from the sun. Sight unseen, it's not possible to diagnose your skin issue. In many cases, a primary care physician (ie: your pediatrician), can make the diagnosis and prescribe treatment. However, if the condition is so severe, you might want to consult with a dermatologist. ...Read more

Protruding vein: Not likely to be a serious health issue. However an Ultrasound of the area with attention to the venous system is a simple, low cost, low risk diagnostic image that can help determine what it is and how to treat. Compression is the first line therapy for bad veins. Be well. ...Read more

A month after i received an anti-inflamatory injection in my wrist (tendon) I have what seems a swollen vein and red rough skin located where injected?

Phlebitis: You probably have a local vein inflammation called phlebitis. Ice 20 minutes twice a day for one or two weeks often helps calm it down sooner. Also for 7-14 days take an over the counter anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen (2-3 200 mg tablets 3 times a day) or Naproxen (220 mg tablets 1-2 twice a day). If not better or improving, see your primary care doctor. ...Read more

Maybe limited form.: Diffuse scleroderma would likely be rapidly progressive, with symmetric skin thickening of extremities, skin and trunk. Visceral involvement is also more likely sooner, like renal and cardiac involvement. Also things like ESR would be elevated. Apparently positive ANA anticentromere pattern would be associated with the limited cutaneous or crest form of scleroderma. See your dr. For more tests. ...Read more
