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?
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

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

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.

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.

I have red rashes all over my virgina and near the sides, why is this happening to me it goes away then comes back this is been going on for two year?
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
