    bug bites while I’m sleeping?

    Something has bitten me in my sleep 3 times now.  Once about every 10 days or so a huge quarter size lump shows up somewhere on my body after sleeping.  It’s only one bite and they’re all like almost 2 weeks apart, they don’t itch the first day or two then they itch like crazy until they’re gone.  I was thinking maybe a spider but I have no clue, any ideas what it could be and how do I stop it

    Can you identify this rash?

    Favorite Answer:

    That looks so itchy, am guessing it's localised and maybe you have reactted to the anesthetic.. But hey don't mess go and see or call your doctor now if you haven't? .  If I remember I was given fucidene when I reacted to something at work and my face was a total unbearably itchy rash. I couldn't even open my eyes in the morning because the fluid seeping out around my eyes had dried them shut..  All my doctor did was give me antibiotics and anti histamines that did nothing really???? 

    The doctor couldn't help me, in the end I payed to go private and I saw a dermatologist   who said keep yourself well hydrated and told me how to take care of it. (She had DERMATITIS TOO) 

    What did help me was to gently wash it with warm camermile and detox myself with fresh ginger shots mixed with apple juice and honey..  In the end I found out I had reacted to an apoxy and that terrible rash that made my life hell for 2 months never came back... 

    Hope your better soon

    Itchy rash on and under boobs ?

    So I got new sports bras, and I wore one of them for two days. I went to the mall yesterday and I was swearing bc it was really hot. My boobs started itching. I got home and didn’t think anything of it. I went to sleep took the bra off and when I woke up I had a rash under my boobs where the band of the bra was and on top of my boobs where it sat. It’s like red and blotchy and it itches. Should I see a doctor? Any advice? Any creams I should put on it?

    Is it normal to cry every time I wash my face? (And I mean every single time) ?

    I have sensitive skin. Very sensitive eyes. It annoys the crap out of me because all I want to do is moisturize after I wash my face but my tears keep washing it away. I’ve resorted to chapstick on my eyes because they would get so dry from crying that it would cause an eczema outbreak on my eyelids. The tears are literally uncontrollable and fall to the outer corner of my eyes, unlike other tears that well in my eyes

    What could be going on?

    Lately, I've been experiencing cold/hot sensations. Around 3pm every afternoon, I become very cold which lasts about an hr. I then start to warm up then become extremely warm quickly to the point where my face, neck & ears will become red & the skin is almost to the point of burning. This will last a half-hour or so.

    This doesn't have anything to do with menopause, or hormones. I do wonder if perhaps my thyroid is acting up or something else is going on. I don't have allergies that would cause this, & my medications aren't to blame either.

    I made my doctor aware of this, but she thought it could be a reaction to something. I think I should contact my doctor again?

    Why is it that our feet get smelly but our hands don't?

    Favorite Answer:

    Wearing socks/shoes makes for a warm, moist environment that's perfect for bacteria and fungus to grow. Your hands are constantly exposed to the air, so no bacteria, no stink.

    Is there any service that can remove a facial wart?

    Or is it something you just have to put up with and hope it goes away by itself?

    UK if that helps.

    How can I cure my toenail fungus for good? There HAS to be some solution.?

    I have tried tea tree oil, Vick’s Vapor rub, some highly reviewed stuff I ordered from Amazon, went to a podiatrist who claimed that removing the nail might make things worse, etc. I mean, with all of the advancements in modern medicine, there isn’t a cure for toenail fungus? What am I missing?

    By the way, I’m not big on taking pills and though that may be a solution, I’d rather get other solutions, preferably quick-working ones.
