Ive had bad facial rash for 14 years, does rosacea have tiny white spots, and would the caveman regime (not using anything) work for rosacea? Regards

Ive had bad facial rash for 14 years, does rosacea have tiny white spots, and would the caveman regime (not using anything) work for  rosacea? Regards

Rosacea: Please forgive my frankness. "Caveman regimen?" Look at Photo Guy. You won't want this. If there is any suspicions that you have rosacea, you need to be evaluated by a competent physician, perhaps a dermatologist. Now, with just white spots in this distribution, I suspect you actually have syringomas. They're trivial and can be fixed easily. But please do get seen. ...Read more

I have white spots on my fingernails. What could be the reason why?

I have white spots on my fingernails. What could be the reason why?

Let me explain: They're called "leukonychia" and are very common. Most of the time the white spots simply are a sign of some past injury to the matrix (base) of your nails. By the time the white spot shows up (about six weeks after the injury) you've probably forgotten all about banging or knocking your fingers. Sometimes, the injury can stem from a manicure that put excessive pressure on the base of the nails. ...Read more

I have glaucoma and I've recently been experiencing seeing little white spots after a hard cough. They last about 5 seconds, is glaucoma the reason?

I have glaucoma and I've recently been experiencing seeing little white spots after a hard cough. They last about 5 seconds, is glaucoma the reason?

Likely not: Glaucoma usually causes painless vision loss over a long period of time & the visual field ceases to exist (like trying to see your hand from the back of your head). You're describing 'flashes' due to irritation or excitement of your retina (the film in the camera of your eyes). Although very common, some people have a risk of retinal detachment. See an ophthalmologist to have a dilated exam. ...Read more
