What skin infection can make your finger red, hard, and clear stuff comes out? How can I get rid off it at home?
Difficult to say: Without seeing/examining the finger. Is there a hard lump that is draining clear fluid? I would not recommend trying a home remedy without knowing for sure what you are dealing with. It could be a ganglion cyst or a viral vesicle, contact dermatitis, or some other infection, all of which would be treated differently. One safe thing you can do till u see MD, is soak finger in warm/hot saltwater. ...Read more
My scalp tends to stink worse when I have headaches. My friends DO smell it. Fingers smell when touched. Can it be contracted from a dogs skin infection?
Ringworm from dog: I suspect you may have "ringworm", which is a fungal infection commonly contracted from pets. These fungi eat keratin, the material found in the outer layer of skin and hair. These fungi love it even more when it's a warm and moist environment - like now in the summertime. I don't think the headaches are related, but you may need some antifungal treatment - good to show your scalp to a doctor. ...Read more
Hi. I have a skin infection on my middle finger. It feels itchy...Some small small pores like things with water in it have come up on finger.
Dyshidrosis: This is a condition known as dyshidrotic eczema and it is harmless yet annoying. Anti itch remedies including some allergy medications might help but also use thicker emollients (vaseline is thickest) and try to use creams rather than lotions that end up drying your skin. A two week treatment of 1% Hydrocortisone will also help. ...Read more

Treatments are available, but the over-the-counter remedies are likely not potent enough. See a Dermatologist for proper treatment and monitoring. ...Read more

This 65 year old woman was bitten by her cat on the dorsal aspect of the right middle finger. Any risk of infection?
Fluconazole cured my first yeast infection. Then I got another one or it came back after my boyfriend fingered me. Why? We use condoms during sex.
Vaginal flora: The ph (acidity/alkalinity scale) is kept constant by "good bacteria" (doderlein's bacilli) at between 4.5 to 5.5. Mechanical manipulation/sex can change the ph as well as harsh soaps, douches & sex toys. Unclean hands can also contrubute. Local vaginal yeast rx's are more effective than systemic oral meds like Fluconazole that go all over the body before it makes it to the vagina. ...Read more
