I've got stinging burning itchy red skin on my joint areas for 2 days now?? I have no allergies and it just started randomly. Any ideas what's wrong?

Which joint areas: are you referring to? And are the burning itchy red skin areas associated with prolonged sunlight exposure? Or have they been through friction or some rubbing action recently?

Otherwise you would need direct hands-on examination for diagnosis. ...Read more

Very red inflamed skin w endless acne cysts for 15 yrs. Sometimes 20+ cysts in face at once.finally clearing. Could this be from bigger health issues?

Very red inflamed skin w endless acne cysts for 15 yrs. Sometimes 20+ cysts in face at once.finally clearing. Could this be from bigger health issues?

See a dermatologist: Your acne is hormonal. Do you have normal menstrual cycles? Birth control? Some birth control makes acne better, some make it worse. Spironolactone at 100mg a day is probably where you should be. If not responding after a few months, isotretinoin orally for 20 weeks will rescue you. No acne pills should be used if you are pregnant. ...Read more

Hard to know: The orthopedist/physician that has seen you previously and that has performed physical examination will know better; but infection of the joint or misalignment would need to be considered. Perhaps more likely that this is normal progression of healing (depending on severity of findings you mention). Have it checked out to be sure. ...Read more

After intercourse, i found a crack under the foreskin, at the joint of glans and foreskin. It was with blood and pain. There was also redness of glans. Is this due to some skin disease?

Skin issue: If none of what your described was present before the intercourse and appeared after, i would think that the intercourse caused it. I don't think of any sexually transmitted disease if you discovered it right after the intercourse. It sounds like an intercourse related trauma. ...Read more
