What do you do if your boyfriend has a hickey in which turned into a rash, and seems to look like it's becoming a scar?

Local trauma: A hickey is a discolored area on the skin that results when small blood vessels break under the skin, causing a type of bruise (purpura). The appearance of the bruise will normally change in appearance and color over time. Small red dots (petechiae) may also appear. These types of injuries rarely scar, but may stay discolored for a fair amount of time. ...Read more

The most likely: Cause would be a candidal skin infection. It is a bit puzzling that it does not itch or irritate at all. A quick look by a physician is probably in order. Over-the-counter antifungal creams that are often recommended include clotrimazole (Mycelex), miconazole (Monistat), and tioconazole (Vagistat). This type of treatment can kill Candida and reduce the spread of the infection.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor if it does not go away in a week or so.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I have. Rash on both sides of my neck. It does not itch showed up around menopause time. Looks like hickey?

Needs to be seen.: It's hard to diagnose a rash here, without seeing it. How long has it been there? (not sure when menopause was for you). Any other symptoms? I would recommend seeing your own doctor or a dermatologist, or doing a HealthTap Prime consult, so that one of us can look at the rash and be able to help you better. ...Read more

Hive?: Sounds like this is new for you. If the spots come and go within a 24 hour period, then almost certainly hives. Watch out for new foods or personal care products that may cause them, but most of the time a cause cannot be found. If you have no contraindications, you could try otc cetirizine that is longer acting than Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and less sedating. If persistent, evaluation by an Allergist can help ...Read more

I am experiencing rash on chest. It started two weeks ago and they are now beginning to look a bit like bruises/hickeys. Help?

Nice try: Appreciate your trying to describe your rash, but you really have to be seen to be diagnosed. Duration of the rash also signals that you need to be examined. Please talk to your GP's office and ask if they want you to see a skin specialist, a Dermatologist. ...Read more

I have had a hickey like rash on my thighs and arms for about a year now. It didn't bother me that it was there until my pain specialist mentioned it.

Ask them 1st: Since the pain specialist has observed it and knows more about our conditions, seems you might ask them for their recommendations. If there's been no change in such a long time, it's not likely to be an emergency - but do ask at you first opportunity. I hope (and expect) it's nothing difficult. Best! ...Read more

This sounds like a: Possible viral infection. Without seeing the rash, though, it is hard to tell. I would recommend that you see your doctor today or tomorrow. If you have HealthTap Prime, you can also do a consult with one of us, where we can actually see you and/or see photos of your rash. ...Read more

My son gets skin rashes that look like scratch marks. The scratch marks just appear and they are not from him scratching. What can it be?

Need to see it.: It is always difficult to try to diagnose a rash without being able to actually see it. I would advise you have your pediatrician look at this. Some possiblities are that he is actually scratching (usually at night) when you are not observing him. How old is he? Where are the marks? Are they actually abrasions or are the more like raised welts? Again, hard to try to diagnose without seeing it. ...Read more
