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 brownish yellow spots on my hands. Can a laser remove them without scarring?

Yes: One can never expect spots to become invisible, but the laser will lighten them. Scarring would be a rare complication especially in experienced hands.

I have a spot on the palm of my hand. At first I thought it could be a bite/wart but it looks full of yellow puss. What is it and how can I get rid?

I have a spot on the palm of my hand. At first I thought it could be a bite/wart but it looks full of yellow puss. What is it and how can I get rid?

Small infection: Maybe you got poked by something? Maybe with a little splinter underneath the skin? If have multiple on palms as well as other areas of skin, call doc for eval asap as it could mean systemic illness such as gonorrhea etc. If just only one, get a clean needle, clean area with rubbing alcohol and lancet/open it to allow draining of the puss. Then keep clean, dry should do it. Consult doc. Good luck.

I had unprotected sex with my partner and come to find out she has vaginal bacteria and I have yellow and white wet spots and her nail cut me?

I had unprotected sex with my partner and come to find out she has vaginal bacteria and I have yellow and white wet spots and her nail cut me?

Bacterial vaginosis: I assume you are referring to bacterial vaginosis. The yellow/white wet spots are on the penis? It would be unlikely to be related. However, having bacterial vaginosis can be associated with with risk for other STDs so would be reasonable to get tested for other STDs.

For MD: Nails break very easily. At times can see layers of nail at the edge. Parts of nail look thinner, I see small depressions /tiny cracks form where polish gets stuck once I remove it. They are not yellow, no white spots. Why? Natural remedy?

Nail health: I don't think that your nail symptoms are caused by any serious health issues. If you're overly concerned, consult a dermatologist. If no pathology is diagnosed, see a skilled cosmetologist or beautician for advice about nail health and care.

Trigger finger?: If you have the sensation that your thymb is catching or clicking, this is common and is referred to as a trigger finger. This may improve with splinting or a cortisone injection. The yellow spot concerns me. Could be a cyst, but could it be an infection. If this gets worse, get it checked out by your doctor.

Need more info: Hard to tell what the problem was due to without seeing it. But if it went away without a trace and you feel well I would only continue to inspect your body for any other outbreaks then if it happens again you should see a physician right away.

Any ideas on what could present with a raised hand rash AND neurological symptoms (brain fog, tremor, loss of balance?)

Did you take: Anything for the rash that may have caused side effects like benadryl (diphenhydramine)? Did you get bit or stung by something? Are you running a fever? Best have yourself looked at if your situation is worsening or does not resolve quickly.
