Positive ANA and high creatine in blood tests. Chest pain and flutter and skin rash on chest. Are these related? What could cause these?

Positive ANA and high creatine in blood tests. Chest pain and flutter and skin rash on chest. Are these related?  What could cause these?

Could be LUPUS,,: These signs could all point to sle or systemic lupus erythematosus. Your creatinine can mean renal involvement, and the rash, although sle has the malar or "butterfly" rash on the face, not the chest, and heart involvement is inflammation, like carditis, more than rhythm changes, but no two cases are alike. This is seen more in women. It can also be lyme disease. See your dr. For more tests. ...Read more

Can fungal rash on chest be treated with clotrimazole 2%?im not sure that clotrimazole 1% is strong enough.is clotrimazol2% too strong for chest skin?

Clotrimazole works: Either way I think 1 or 2% would be fine and no "risk" from the med of damaging your skin. Controlling the fungal infection is a much more important issue. Question "how" fungus arose is important since going forward u don't want this coming back. Fungus loves moisture so keeping area dry is important. It's summer now so I could imagine heat/sweat providing a breeding ground for these germs. ...Read more

Hope you're reading this now because u need antivirals-- Valtrex (valacyclovir) or Acyclovir. Go to ER now or call MD. I have been able to stop cases like yours when identified this early.

Skin biopsy shows early connective tissue disease. What is connective tissue disease? Why would it cause a chest rash? Or flushing w/ stress, emotion?

Skin biopsy shows early connective tissue disease. What is connective tissue disease? Why would it cause a chest rash? Or flushing w/ stress, emotion?

Get 2nd pathologist: "Connective tissue disease" was an obsolete word for the lupus / scleroderma / dermatomyositis family decades ago. Unless this is a second-hand report of a biopsy that showed nonspecific inflammatory changes that anybody can have, I would ask that the case be reviewed by another pathologist if the rash might be a real problem. Lots of folks flush with stress ("stress urticaria"); it's normal. ...Read more
