Should I start antiviral for shingles? I had a blister on my lip 2 days ago now have an earache + rash on right side of face but lip blister dried up

UnlikelyShinglesBut?: Blister on the lip which healed in 2 days is unlikely to be Shingles. What kind of rash you have on right side of face is more important. Does it looks like multiple blisters Is the rash painful. I suggest have your doctor look at it& get he proper diagnosis, as you do need a prescription for AntiViral Antibiotics, &may need follow up as the neuralgia it causes can be very painful&need to be addressed ...Read more

Re-evaluation: Sounds like you should reconnect with your doctor for a recheck. If the initial tx didn't help s/he may have had an alternative DX in mind but won't know you're not improving unless you let them know. Based on the way it's evolved, it sounds like you may have a fungal infection & I suspect your doctor can prob tx that without much problem, or will connect you with the right physician. Good luck! ...Read more

I've been on lLamictal for 7 years with no problems. Two days ago an itchy rash appeared on the right side of my face. Could this be a Lamictal rash?

I've been on lLamictal for 7 years with no problems. Two days ago an itchy rash appeared on the right side of my face. Could this be a Lamictal rash?

Unlikely: Usually, as you are I think surmising, the Lamictal rash comes on when you have begun this medication. It can be localized on the face alone, but usually it is more diffuse on the body. Again, it typically comes within weeks (not years) of administration. However, given the potential seriousness of rashes with the drug, I would get checked out with a dermatologist as soon as you can. ...Read more

You: You should visit your primary care provider or an allergist to have allergy skin or blood testing done. In the meantime try benadryl, (diphenhydramine) if that works then you can be more confident that it is allergy related. Also consider new lotions, detergents or soaps that you may be using.
Best of luck. ...Read more

? rosacea: I think you have rosacea, nickname-adult acne. First, avoid factors that cause a flare. Always wear an SPF 30+ sunscreen. Protect your face in cold weather with scarf/ski mask. Avoid touching your much. Wash with gentle cleanser (Dover, Cetaphil). Avoid skin products with alcohol. Some possible alternative medicines: chrysanthemum indicum, niacinamide, & azelaic acid creams. Good wishes! ...Read more

Saw PCP for shingles, right side of face. No rash. Prescription Valtrex (valacyclovir). Asked to watch for rash on tip of nose. "Bump" today, but on left side of tip. ER?

Antiviral treatment: There is 'one level higher' in terms of antiviral treatment for shingles -& that's intravenous acyclovir. It's heavy duty stuff and you would need to go to the ER to get that going. The real question is though, is that 'bump' at all related to shingles Y/N. Given that this can be serious - affecting the face and possibly the eye, I think you should get it seen today. If there's an ID doc, ask 'em ...Read more

Blisters/rash on right side head of penis. Tested negative for herpes and syphilis. Doctor prescribed me antibiotics/fungal cream. Wut else could it b?

Reaction?: If any contact with bowl cleaner or other chemical, could be a local reaction (/"burn") from that, which may look infected on exam (hence abx/anti-fungal). The warm/moist environ slows healing. Should keep dry & aired as able (don't get arrested!) while using ointments as rx'ed. Give it a week. If not improving, get re-checked. ...Read more

I have developed like a rash on my side of face I've never had anything like this before?

Dr. Can examine skin: Skin rashes are hard to describe with words. A rash that looks worrisome, lasts more than a few days, or keeps recurring should be examined by a primary care doctor or a dermatologist. A doctor can start treatment, or he can do additional testing if the diagnosis is uncertain. Face rashes include acne, allergic reactions, rosacea, seborrhea, etc. Sometimes, internal disease can cause a face rash. ...Read more

Really itchy rash on one side of face that was in the sun. What can I do to even out color and stop itch?

Depends: You should treat the symptoms with a mild topical steroid and see if that helps. If this is really one-sided then this may be a sun-sensitivity problem, meaning something other than a sunburn. The change in skin tone may even out with time. You should probably see your doctor. ...Read more

My 18 month old son has a rash on the right side of his head/forehead. It's a little itchy to him but it doesn't hurt. I'm not sure what it is?

A localized rash on: One side of the head is most consistent with a contact allergic rash or dermatitis, especially if it is itchy. To confirm, a photo or exam is most helpful. Those usually clear in a week or so, but in the meantime, topical creams for itching, which can include hydrocortisone cream, may be helpful. A fungal infection, ringworm, is usually coin shaped, and impetigo is moist and crusty. ...Read more
