Normal 06 Mo Peeling Skin
Breakout every 4-7 weeks in lesions, abrasions, leaves scars and purple bruises. Entire body. Minor burn/ itching and spots darkening in skin. Ideas?
Skin is being weird: I would get to a doctor with this right away. Especially with it leaving scars, you want to get to the bottom of what's going on, even if it's something as simple as acne. Other things that come to mind include staph infections, drug allergies, or other less common systemic skin allergies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

2 small skin blotches on left Breast under nipple. Slightly darker pigment than skin. Flat, not itchy or raised or anything. 32 years old. concern??
Skin blotches: Diagnosing skin lesions over the computer is basically impossible.

Good luck. ...Read more
Pale red dots on cheek. 18 years old. Always wore sunscreen. Never had acne. Hyper pigmentation? Underlying freckles? Uneven skin tone? Narrow down?
Sorry...: But is sounds like you have narrowed down your options about as much as anyone can without actually seeing the lesions that you are referring to. Instead of narrowing it down, I could add other possibilities but that would be fruitless. If you are interested in an actual answer you will need to see a physician (primary care or dermatologist). Take care. ...Read more

HIV: Sounds like you're having some pretty common health annoyances & are worried they're due to HIV. First, the chance of of getting HIV from 1 encounter is very low (1 in 1250 exposures for vaginal penetration). The oral HIV tests are pretty accurate (about 92%) but to be extra sure and give you peace of mind, call your gyn or PCP to get a blood test. It's quick and confidential. Good luck! ...Read more

Yellow constant flakes on chin, peeling lips. What is this? Been dx'ed with perioral dermatitisd (1), seb derm (2), and eczema (1).
Contact dermatitis: A dermatitis confined only to the chin and lips suggests possible contact dermatitis. Perioral dermatitis has red papules and eczema and seborrheic dermatitis should have dermatitis in other areas consistent with the diagnosis. I suggest another opinion by a dermatologist if this persists. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
For days my skin glows, lips are red, face looks healthy. Then skin becomes dull, lips darker and face looks emaciated for a few days. Cycle repeats.
Dermatologist: You need an objective eye to see what you are describing to work on a treatment for your skin and body. Nutrition is a big part of good skin, but science, specifically dermatology, can work wonders with what your DNA has given you for life. Genetics is what we're born with, but if this is not a systemic illness, a dermatologist could help. I suggest you see a GP when your skin is dull, to start ...Read more
My son 9 months old has very sensitive skin. Every mosquito bites seems to have visible red swollen marks. After few days, blisters shows.
Common: The best answer is to protect your baby from the mosquitos. If they come into your home, consider mosquito netting. Protective clothing, as well as bug repellents may also be helpful, although we don't ususually like to use the repellents in young children-if malaria or other mosquito borne illnesses are of concern where you live, talk with his doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I agree that it : May be possible after severe allergic blistering reaction. (but certainly is not classic) bed bug bites may cause no sx's or signs in some except for 2 small points where skin was punctured by bedbug. When there's a reaction, it may show as fast as an hour or it may not show for several days after being bitten. It can cause itchy, pink, swollen, lesions which are clear in center. In cases of >>. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Let it peel : On its own time. Do not try to peel it off too soon. Peeling often happens as a result of a 1st degree burn, like a sunburn. If during burn recovery, damaged skin is peeled too soon, the dermal layer below may be damaged as well. Generally speaking, the skin should peel on its own under nothing more than the pressure of a normal shower. Gentle soap and water applicaiton works best. ...Read more
Yes: If you are talking about the normal peeling of new infant skin in the first month, sure it is fine to do a moisturizer, as long as it is unscented, and preferably a creme rather than a lotion. I recommend eucerin, or even an olive oil based unscented moisturizing creme when baby gets out of the bath, if you are interested to avoid petroleum based products on baby's skin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See below: You may apply an emollient like Vaseline at night to soften the thick skin. Scrape of the layers with a heel scrapper/scrubber available at drug stores, in the morning. You will need to do this on an ongoing basis.
