Rash: Suggest you try Hydrocortisone cream for a face rash. This is available over the counter. Alcohol tends to be drying, often irritates rashes, and is unlikely to help it heal. ...Read more

Itchy red, alligator like feeling, swollen rash on cheeks, neck & chest. Swollen eyelids. Dr. Said allergic reaction, steroid medication is not helpin?

Up the treatment: I see in your medication list that you are taking Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) an h1 antihistamine, and were prescribed a steroid cream. You can try an over the counter h2 antihistamine Loratadine along with the above. You may need to be switched from the steroid cream to steroids by mouth, so a followup with your doctor would be the next step. If you have lip/mouth symptoms, go to Emergency Dept. ...Read more

I have a faint rash to my neck/cheek, asthma diagnosis 2 yrs ago requiring freq streriods, migraines, and chronic neck/upper back pain. Could this be lupus?

Need evaluation: Lupus is an autoimmune disorder where the body "reacts against self" for unknown reasons. Lupus can be difficult to diagnose and requires blood tests. Almost all patients with lupus have joint pain/arthritis and many have chest pain, fatigue, fever, hair loss, mouth sores, sensitivity to sunlight and rash on face. Almost any body organ system can be affected. Asthma is not associated with lupus. ...Read more

My 1mo has a rash on her cheeks, ears, head, and neck. Is that normal? What can I do in order to go away or calm down?

Baby rashes: The most common reason for those bumps is the use of the so called "baby products" like Baby Magic and Johnson and Johnson. While they smell nice, the give a large percentage of babies a rash. Wash the baby with dove sensitive skin soap (liquid or bar) and in between just wash with warm water. Nothing else is required. This also can be baby acne which is an effect of your hormones/no treatment. ...Read more

My 8th mnt daughter has skin rashes on head,elbows,knee,bumps,cheeks,neck,arm.her dad has psoriasis..cud it be d same n is it serious?using cetaphil.

Itchy?: At this young age, I would be more suspicious of eczema (atopic dermatitis) which may be linked to food allergies as well as airborne allergens. If these rash itch, then eczema is more likely. If you are using Cetaphil lotion, be sure to use it regularly and apply it within 3 mins after bathing. Talk to your pediatrician. A discussion of eczema can be found elsewhere. ...Read more

1 week into having shingles. Rash only 7 spots bottom cheek and starting to fade. Throat now inflamed and neck glands swollen. Is this still shingles?

Pharyngitis: You're describing a pharyngitis which is unrelated to shingles. I wonder "why" at your young age you're under attack from shingles followed by a nasty throat infection. I hope u can get yourself checked to find out "why" this happened to u. There could be something wrong with your immune system or you're under way too much stress. Hope u feel better soon! ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to be sure without examining you, however, what you described could be dandruff. Wash your scalp daily with any shampoo. If the lesion does not improve in 3-4 weeks, please consult your doctor.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

My head is itchy lots! I found 1 dead bug combing through my thick curly long hair. It was long and skinny. I have a rash on the neck. What bug?

Possibly lice...: Lice start out as eggs, but they can hatch and become long and narrow bugs. That would be the most likely answer, but you really need a dermatology evaluation. Treating it is complicated, because you need to use the right shampoo to kill it (http://www.ridlice.com/lice-killing-shampoo.php), AND you need to properly wash and/or dispose of linens, stuffed animals, blankets, etc. ...Read more
