What Is The Best Treatment For Livedo Reticularis
Is there any treatment for livedo reticularis and what kind of doctor do I need to see? Thank you.
Livedo reticularis: You should see a rheumatologist as it could be a manifestation of an underlying rheumatologic disease.
Livedo reticularis: Livedo reticularis = common skin condition which has a mottled & lace-like appearance. See: http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/livedo-reticularis/expert-answers/FAQ-20057864
Livedo Reticularis: There is no treatment for livedo reticularis. Rewarming the area in idiopathic cases or treatment of the underlying cause of secondary livedo may reverse the discolouration. However, over time the vessels become permanently dilated and livedo reticularis becomes permanent regardless of the surrounding temperature.
Is there current info for ideopathic livedo reticularis that is not suggestive of lupus? Have had rhum. Dr do work up. All negative, this was 5 yrs ag
See details: The majority of cases of livedo have no underlying cause.

Different: Raynaud's is spasm of blood vessel with cold or stress leading to white (most important color change) as well as red and blue. Classicially it occurs in the fingers, but also can involve the feet or internal arteries. Livedo is a mottled reticulated vascular pattern that appears like a lace-like purplish discoloration of the lower extremities due swelling of medium veins. The causes can be many.

Panniculitis/Pernio: You may have a special kind of Chillblains that attack the Fatty tissue of outer thighs&arms, low abdomen, chin, in people with extra weight during the cold days of winter when not very well covered, or if left moist. Areas turn red and purple/black and hurt. You need to rewarm them but they will blister and slough off until replaced for the new tissue. Go to a Doctor to check for lupus too.

Could ehler's danlos present w/spontaneous pneumomediastinum? Desperate for answers. Ongoing GI bleeds and low-grade fevers (6+ months) with no explanation, livedo reticularis, definitely hypermobile
A qualafied yes: Ehler-danlos is no just one conditiont. There are quite a few variations lumped together under this term. A vascular sub-type may typically cause bleeding. I suggest either a visit to place like mayo clinic or contact the ehlers-danlos national foundation.See 1 more doctor answer

Have Ehlers-Danlos. Always had dark purple livedo reticularis on legs. Now permanent on stomach, arms, face. Cardio can't figure it out. Concerning?
Suggest DoingYourOwn: Research, e.g. http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/Ehlers-Danlos_syndrome & http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/Livedo_reticularis for starters & consider that your primary physician is always yourself, regardless medical background. You decide what you pay attention to, what help you seek out, from whom, what changes you make & get to live with the outcomes; no one else. Physicians are just fellow humans.
Two questions: Two questions. First is livedo reticularis which is pink vascular skin leg disease with net pattern, associated with diseases like lupus, drugs ; dialysis. 2nd is leg hair loss which can be due to pad, drugs, steroids, skin diseases, thyroid problem, alopecia etc. Please see you doctor for history exam and diagnostic tests.

Your physician would be able to clarify this or may send you to a Rheumatologist to help clarify thr diagnosis and the reason for cramping.See 1 more doctor answer
