You may have been...: ...using a burn ointment or perhaps a bandage who's adhesive you are allergic to. Or perhaps, because the new skin is more sensitive for now, it may be hypersensitive to a moisturizer you're using. Switch to petroleum jelly, hypogenic moisturizer or fragrance-free baby oil. Stick with a mild soap. If the rash doesn't subside, check with your doctor. Best wishes. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Stage 2 Syphilis 1:256 treated w/ penicillin. Rash came back 8 months later. Retest titer1:64. 4fold decrease successful treatment so why isrash back?

Stage 2 Syphilis 1:256 treated w/ penicillin. Rash came back 8 months later. Retest titer1:64. 4fold decrease successful treatment so why isrash back?

Rash: It may not be from the same cause. Obviously, I would suggest being evaluated for HIV (I assume that you have), since acquiring one STI may be associated with another infection. Are you on Remicade for Crohn's? Any new medications? Usually the titers are rechecked after six months for a fourfold reduction which is in your case. Look for an alternative cause - recent antibiotic exposure? Etc ...Read more

Stress caused itchy rash all over body doctor prescribed frenaler cort (10 tablets) rash came back once treatment was over. Can he take another 10 tabl?

Itchy rash: I suggest you see an allergist to see why you are developing this rash, steroids are not safe to take repeatedly, especially with high blood pressure. I would rather take an antihistamine such as Claritin (loratadine) Allegra or zyrtec to control the rash. ...Read more

Can eczema turn into psoriasis? I have a patch of itchy skin on my shin diagnosed as eczema. My GP prescribed Verdeso 0.05% rash came back red & bumpy

Can eczema turn into psoriasis? I have a patch of itchy skin on my shin diagnosed as eczema. My GP prescribed Verdeso 0.05% rash came back red & bumpy

No: In fact atopic eczema and psoriasis are nearly 180 degree opposite to each other in term of the immune reactions. Cortisone is a non-specific anti-inflammatory agent which however may help both conditions although better and safer alternatives may be required. The itchy rash on your chin is likely from a contact allergy with hair preparations being the most likely suspects. ...Read more

I have bad OCD about my health I itch all over with no rash, blood text came back normal internal med doctor does not seemed concern?

Don't worry: You did a good thing to check for physical causes. Since the expert is not concerned - you need not be. But I hear that you still are. So, you might seek an eval and Tx by a psychologist. If you are OCD, there are therapy strategies that help. Not easy, but effective. An eval is a good start. Best! ...Read more

Burning pain left breast tissue and left upper back for 4 months. No rash, breast ultrasound came back normal. Only found a lipoma. What could it be?

Burning pain left breast tissue and left upper back for 4 months. No rash, breast ultrasound came back normal. Only found a lipoma. What could it be?

Many things: Things that come to mind thrombophlebitis of a lateral vein, expansion of the lipoma if it is large and possibly some neuropathic pain from stretching some of your nerves. If the pain does not improve with Ibuprofen or tylenol, (acetaminophen) you should probably see a breast surgeon. ...Read more

Stomach pain, pimple rash=AB & steroids, came back =cipro and for stomach pain=Prilosec. Blk specs in stool. Stomach, colon, intest. Cancer? MRSA spread?

Stomach pain, pimple rash=AB & steroids, came back =cipro and for stomach pain=Prilosec. Blk specs in stool. Stomach, colon, intest. Cancer? MRSA spread?

Nondiagnostic: These symptoms are nondiagnostic without a thorough history and physical examination by a physician. It is unusual to prescribe steroids for stomach pain and a rash and then get another antibiotic prescribed. Your physician who knows all your findings is best to advise you. I doubt that cancer is the problem, however. Further studies seem warranted. ...Read more

2y/o having itchy rashes all over the body. Rashes disappeared yestrday and came back this morning. Could this be due to food allergy?

Yes.: Food sensitivities are closely related to skin rashes in children and aduls. An itchy rash suggests allergic rash or dermatitis, or eczema tours rash. A hydration with lotions and steroid creams will alleviate the symptoms. But if the symptoms are ongoing I suggest having your child tested for food sensitivities and trying some diet elimination trials. ...Read more

After yardwork >rash. Derma gave desonide0.05.After 1 week the rash went away, but came back. How long should I use the med to ensure complete healing?

Continue to treat.: You either have some kind of allergy or contact dermatitis. If it came back yard work then it most likely is something like poison ivy. This often requires a treatment for a longer period. Please continue treatment for 4-5 days more. If it doesn't clear out or comes back then your doctor might need to give you oral medications. ...Read more

My baby has born 10 days back and now she is suffering from rashes on all over her body. Please suggest something?

My baby has born 10 days back and now she is suffering from rashes on all over her body. Please suggest something?

Diagnosis?: An all over body rash in a newborn certainly may be benign rash that is self limited, requiring no treatment. It may also be a sign of something more serious. How is she feeding? Is she sleeping her usual? Does she wake to feed? Does she have some times she is alert and awake. What was your group b strep status? Did you have a fever when she was born? We may be able to help in a prime visit. ...Read more

My whole body is itching since 4-5 days, I had similar itch many years back, it went away itself, it feels as if it is from inside the body, no rashes..

Possible dry skin: For the next two weeks I would try using no soap at all on your back and if possible shower every other day. Put a moisturizing cream on your back before you go to bed and the lotion in the morning. If that doesn't work you should see your internist or a dermatologist. ...Read more

3year old has a rashes red like rash on his back what could it be?

Hard to say: If localized only to the back we think of factors that would put it there, like laying down on a wool mat or wearing a shirt with a colored decal in that location. Much of rash assessment is visual, so since I can't see it and we can't view it on the public site I must leave it a puzzle. ...Read more
