Rash (Definition)

Most bumps and blotches on a newborn baby are harmless and clear up by themselves. By far the most common skin problem in infants is diaper rash.

R/O Fibromyalgia: 42 year old lady with 14 year history of fatigue, low grade fever, cold extremities, joint pain, facial flushing and digestive problems. You may have fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue syndrome. It is far from being "all in your head" it is a real condition affecting up to 5 million people in the United States according to the CDC. People with fibromyalgia experience extreme fatigue, widespread joint pain without inflammation, digestive problems such as IBS, and several other issues. While it is difficult to entertain a diagnosis such as fibromyalgia with only a presented medical case, I think this is likely your diagnosis. There are diagnostic criteria set forth by the American College of Rheumatology and I would personally encourage you to visit an academic medical center in the Bay Area that is convenient for you. UCSF, Stanford, and UC Davis are all outstanding medical facilities where you can discuss this more. In my opinion, flushing and vasospasm need separate evaluation. ...Read more

How about applying clindamycin solution and betamathesone w/ gentamycn on my face? Is it effective for redness rashes on my face?

Might not work: The common redness rashes on the face are rosacea and eczema. Topical antibiotic alone works for rosacea but not the one with topical steroid. Eczema might just need topical steroid but Betamethasone is too strong for the thin skin in the face. Also, there are many other skin diseases that looks red too. Since you get prescriptions for those meds, you should see your doctor for correct diagnosis. ...Read more
