Would using amlactin reduce redness & bumps of kp?

Would using amlactin reduce redness & bumps of kp?

It helps, but...: Keratosis pilaris bumps don't like to completely go away, but amlactin can help. If the bumps are on both sides of the body (like arms ; thighs) one can use amlactin on one side (and use the other side for comparison). After 3-4 weeks, if the amlactin side is a lot smoother and softer than the other side, then that is a good sign that amlactin has been helpful, and one should use it on both sides. ...Read more

I have a bite that's black and looks like a bump surrounded by redness and swelling. What type of bite is it and should I be concerned?

Exam needed: If there is significant or spreading redness the bite site may be infected. My guess is that this is a spider bite and either the venom or bleeding under the skin caused swelling. Either way redness is of concern and examination by a physician is needed. In the meantime apply warm compresses, pat dry and apply an antibacterial ointment like bacitracin. ...Read more

What causes temporal pain on one side head. It doesn't hurt bad unless I touch it. Should I be concerned? I am 60. No bumps or redness on area.

PainInTheTemple, Oy!: At your age it could be an inflamed temporal artery, which is a marker for inflammation to deeper arteries, some of which could affect your eye and eyesight. So best to go see your doctor right away. A blood test could give a fairly good answer. If it's not that (called "temporal arteritis) then your doctor could try and figure out something else with a sigh of relief that it wasn't arteritis. ...Read more

Non itchy bumps: Since the bumps are non itchy, not red, come and go daily, these seem to represent some type of a reaction to an allergen in your environment. Examine the area for bugs, mites etc. Long term exposure to such allergens can cause chronic problems like asthma etc. ...Read more

Cannot say: Which insect in your particular case.
and, minor itching is helped by benadryl (diphenhydramine) (an antihistamine) that acts pretty rapidly and generally safe.
Spreading redness, warmth, redness and of course purulence implies a more serious condition (infection) that requires antibiotics. ...Read more

Emergency room: Go to the hospital emergency room for evaluation and treatment. It's important to try to get information on the dog (and its rabies immunization status)that bit you and perhaps the local police, local dog officer, and public health department can help as well. Antibiotics are indicated and your status of tetanus protection will be checked. ...Read more

This is the kind: Of thing that you can watch for a few days, but if it hasn't resolved or is in fact worse. "causing more pain". it is time for you to see your Doctor.

Scabies?: When someone has very itchy lesions especially at night involving also the webs of the fingers and toes, the bell of scabies rings in my head. On the other hand, scabies usually affects more parts of the body than the lower extremities. I do agree that you need to see a dermatologist but not a podiatrist since your problem is not confined to the feet. ...Read more

Hi, I recently had a TB test. It looks round and red but no bump. It was read as negative by nurse buy after 5 days, the redness is still there.

No bump = negative: A PPD TB skin test is where one needle injects a tiny amount of material under the skin. It is used to check for exposure to tb. The "bump" is measured, and any redness is not measured unless it is raised above the normal skin surface. A "bump" is positive if 5, 10, or 15mm, depending on the patient's circumstances. If positive or if worried, a blood test is done. Redness resolves in a week or so. ...Read more

Pinworm infection: This sounds like pinworm. Definitely sanitation there might be lower than where you're from-and the pinworm eggs can survive for 2 or 3 weeks outside the body-so easy to pick up. Not sure if you're familiar with the tape test? Where you stick clear tape around your anus first thing in the a.m. (to get eggs) and bring to a doc. Or try empiric therapy-pyrantel pamoate, mebendazole or albendazole. ...Read more
