9 year old has almost like diaper rash on inside of bottom cheek...Been using a&d but still there. She uses flushable wipes to wipe after bowel moment?

Avoid wipes: Wipes do not necessarily "clean" your bottom and the chemicals may irritate the skin. Try a tub bath and plain dove soap. Rinse very well. Keep the area dry, use only cotton underwear. If it is itchy it may be yeast and you could try anti fungal creams. Be careful it does not look infected, it is "honey crusting" or developing areas that look pus filled, if that is the case see your doc asap. ...Read more

Rash: As I've said before, it is difficult do rashes without seeing them. However, my best guess is eczema. Sensitive, allergic skin. Especially if it's itchy. If it's that widespread, I would have it checked out. ...Read more

Why do i get so many rashes and acnes on my butt cheek?

Why do i get so many rashes and acnes on my butt cheek?

Irritants?: You are still young enough to have acne flares but frequent rashes makes me think of external irritants. Wash all your underwear/pants in sensitive skin laundry products. Use a body wash destined for acne. Always apply a light layer of eczema cream to the skin after bathing. If you sweat a lot spray and antiperspirant (not deodorant) on the skin in the morning and wash off at end of day. ...Read more

Hi I have a hard lump inside my cheek below cheekbone? What could it be? There's no pain or you can't see it anywhere inside the mouth I'm worried

Investigate: There's no reason for you to be worried. Probably a simple explanation such as a calcified salivary duct or scar tissue from biting your cheek. This is not a problem that can be diagnosed sight unseen. Please call your Dentist for a differential diagnosis and appropriate treatment. You'll be glad you did. ...Read more

Hi im tasha i recently started getting small red bumps that look as if there rashes on my face by my forehead and cheek area and it's itchy.

Facial rash: Small red bumps on face typically represent a rash. Rashes can be caused by many things such a virus, food allergies, contact allergies and more. If it persists for more than several days I recommend dermatology evaluation. Try to pinpoint what may have caused the rash. Topical corticosteroid creams may help ...Read more

I see rashes near the eye and also burning sensation at the upper cheek which gives me discomfort. It itches me a lot what is happening to me?

Can you have herpes inside the mouth? I have a painful ulcer on the right side inner cheek. I've had canker sores This ulcer is smaller n more painful

Can you have herpes inside the mouth? I have a painful ulcer on the right side inner cheek. I've had canker sores This ulcer is smaller n more painful

Yes: You absolutely can have oral herpes. Except for the initial episode the location is always on the firmer or "attached" tissue, such as the roof of the mouth or areas close to the teeth. Often they appear at first as small circular lesions which expand and coalesce into a bigger lesion. Typically a response to increased stress of some kind - food,liquid,trauma, lack of sleep, being rundown, etc. ...Read more

I have a light patch on my right cheek. It's not a rash and it doesn't itch. It feels like my regular skin but it's discolored. Should I be worried?

Likely Innocent: It's best to examine in person, or to see a photo, to evaluate size, shape, color, context, features of its border, etc. from what you've provided, flat, smooth, non-raised, hypo pigmented, non-itching lesion, most likely innocent, but cannot diagnose without larger context. ...Read more
