What std causes red and white spots on palms and burning sensation on palms of hands?

What std causes red and white spots on palms and burning sensation on palms of hands?

Probably no STD: Syphilis can cause a skin rash that involves the palms and soles, but unlikely to cause burning; and syphilis is rare in women in your part of the country. Probably this is something other than syphilis or any other STD. But STDs wouldn't be on your mind if you weren't at risk, so get tested. Play it safe and see a doctor for diagnosis and possible treatment. Good luck!

May be related: The white spots may be related to the blisters on your fingers. There are many different things that can cause that type of rash. If it persists, you should have the rash checked.

Vasospasm?: Does this happen when you expose your hand to cold or you are under stress? It sounds like Raynaud. To read about it click here ---> http://www. Mayoclinic.

Photograph?: A picture's worth 1000 words. In your case, an examination by a dermatologist may be worth 2000 words. What materials have you handled in terms of chemicals? Solvents? FOODS? Materials of an unusual nature? Organic causes could relate to adrenal or thyroid glands. Do you smash bugs at all with your hands a lot? Write me or send photos at: www. Healthtap.

Red spots on palms: Some of the causes of red spots on your palms include dyshidrotic eczema (pompholyx), contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, fungal infection, psoriasis, syphilis, and rocky mountain spotted fever, a tick-borne illness that can cause rash on the palms. You really should be evaluated by a doctor.

Capillary cirulation: The autonomic (automatic) nervous system controls circulation by a "dilate/constrict" balance. This suggests that lower brain controls are unevenly distributed. Depending on whether there are other symptoms (if I am right there always are) a high sugar diet and/or cow's milk would do this.

Blotchy hands: It is normal to have intermittent spots/blotches/patches in your palms. They are usually caused by unequal circulation in the skin due to variable state of constriction and dilatation of the veins.

Strep throat, prescribed amoxicillin. Then red spots on top of hand, rash along both bottom sides of arms. Doc says unlikely allergic relation. STD?

Strep related: There are at least two forms of rash associated with strep. One is related to a toxin released by living strep germs, typically flat, sand papery and rosey. Anther is a hive like eruption (bumps) that can be associated with it. There are a few STD associated rashes, but what you describe is not how they appear.

I have white spots on my leg, arm, and hand. Is it possible to be sun damage? Should I be worried about ir?

Tinea versicolor: It's possibly tinea versicolor. It's caused by a fungus, which blocks the sunlight from activating the melanocytes (pigment cells) in your skin. With sun exposure, the skin around it tans but the fungal area stays white. You'll need a doctor's examination for a diagnosis. Http://www. Aad.

I'm 38 weeks and noticed my acne getting out of hand and it looked infected so I put a bit of hydrogen peroxide on my face, and noticed white spots?

I'm 38 weeks and noticed my acne getting out of hand and it looked infected so I put a bit of hydrogen peroxide on my face, and noticed white spots?

Acne: The hormones in pregnancy make acne much worse for a lot of women. There are many over the counter acne facial washes and topical medications that may help. Hydrogen peroxide is not one of them that will help. After delivery you should see improvement as the hormones return to normal levels. A dermatologist post partum can offer other treatments as well.

Numbness in left hand, bottom part of arm, bottom part of leg and left side of face. Mri showed white spots on brain, LP was negative for ms.

Numbness in left hand, bottom part of arm, bottom part of leg and left side of face. Mri showed white spots on brain, LP was negative for ms.

MS or not MS?: Iit is hard to find the cause of a symptom of tingling. The changes on your MRI could be related to your symptoms. When the LP is negative, it does not mean you do not have MS, but one must consider other causes, such as a virus of some kind, or other medical illnesses. It may help you to have some symptomatic treatment of your symptoms, maybe a nerve conduction study and a follow up mri.

Doctor queried Down syndrome in my baby (72 hrs old). Echo test is ok, no short hand, no groove between toes, no white spots in eye, mother age 20, ears ok?

Doctor queried Down syndrome in my baby (72 hrs old). Echo test is ok, no short hand, no groove between toes, no white spots in eye, mother age 20, ears ok?

Any age mom: Ds can occur at ang maternal age but numbers climb a lot for older moms. If doc suspects some unusual issue it is best that s/he be up front about it and do appropriate screening or specific tests to define it. Proper diagnosis can either relieve you or make sure early treatments are started.

Tinea versicolor: Google for images of tinea versicolor. Its a yeast that can do this. Prescription meds work great, over the counter zinc or selenium sulfide products as well.

Getting white spots on the skin?

Getting white spots on the skin?

Several Causes: White spots on skin have many causes. In folks older than 40, the main cause is sun damage called " idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis". It happes mostly on the forearms and shins. Other causes include vitiligo, postinflammatory hypopigmentation, medication or chemical leukoderma, and finally hypopigmented mycosis fungoides (a type of skin lymphoma). I would have you see a dermatologist.
