    I have a rash that appeared about 4 or 5 days ago. It started just above my butt crack, around my tailbone and yesterday I noticed it started spreading and today it seems to have spread even more. Now it s going around to my stomach. It is very itch, but hurts when I scratch it or even touch it at times. I ve been putting hydrocortisone cream on it which helps with the discomfort, but isn t stopping the rash. What could be causing this?

  • Noticed a lump between inner left thigh and scrotum. Initially there was pain, I applied pressure to the area and pus surfaced. What to do?

    Best answer: You should see your doctor, sir, for a physical examination.

    As pus was present, there's an obvious infection. Your doctor will be able to determine whether you have actually developed an abscess or not, plus s/he will likely prescribe antibiotics.

  • Boils on butt ? No insurance, please help?

    I’m a 20 yr old girl, who has had a boil problem. They always appear on my bum, specifically like where I sit. They cause the worse scars & always pop up in the general area.

    I’m a 20 yr old girl, who has had a boil problem. They always appear on my bum, specifically like where I sit. They cause the worse scars & always pop up in the general area. Never has it been close to my anus or private area, but I mean they’re on the butt cheeks. I don’t particularly eat unhealthy. They’ve been happening for a few months now. I know I should see a doctors but to be completely honest, I don’t have the money or the insurance. They hurt when I wear jeans & I have not found a cure. I’ve searched the web, & people say it may be a staph infection . I have no idea what to do. I feel lost and miserable. I’m too embarrassed to have a sex life, (oh forgot to mention, I’m not sexually active) because the scars are so bad.

  • I rubbed a pumice stone too hard on my legs!?

    Best answer: Of course it will come back... Skin is constantly growing (and shedding) new layers, it will heal.

    I have back of neck eczema, vagina thrush, tinea versicolor and athlete's foot and fungal based perioral dermatitis and I must shower twice daily to reapply my topical medications. My step-dad said I should only use the shower in the morning just cos it's making the shower blinds wet and it doesn't dry overnight properly. Is this wrong?? Why should i stop using it when topical medication should be used twice a day instead of once!

    A couple months ago my lips began this cycle of dryness that i havent been able to solve. This is more than just chapped lips and i am not sure what to do about it. For example, if i carefully brush off the dead skin it will come back in a couple of days in pieces that peel easily. When they get wet, they become white and easily fall off. This causes the skin to come off when i shower or brush my teeth. I have been to a dermatologist and used 2 prescribed ointments so far and they havent worked. Has anyone had this problem or know any way to fix it?

    For almost 3 years now, Ive been having severe itchiness on the lips of my vag, and in and around the anus. (Not really inside vagina, rarely ever) Ive gone to a specialist and she told me I don’t have lichen sclerosus, Ive also tried many yeast infection medications but nothing has worked. There is no rash, no bumps, no patchy scaly skin- everything looks normal but the inchiness is INSANE. Does anyone else relate/have the same symptoms? What could it be?

  • Pen ink on skin, will it still be removed or not?

    Best answer: If she stops doing it the ink will come off. Even if it's permanent, it may last longer but it will still come off.

  • I accidentally popped a blister on my foot and it is red and hurts. What should I do?

    Best answer: I’ve heard that once you get all the puss out and pressure from it, it will heal up and feel better. So try to get as much out as possible and keep it as sterile as possible.

    Bacteria is probably what’s causing it so that’s why it hurts. Happens with teeth too.

    They haven’t taken me to get help for depression even though my school’s social worker told my mom I needed help a few years ago. My skin on my face has always been extra red and I used to cry and beg to go to a dermatologist but they never took me. I have acne and scars on my back and my mom won’t take me for help because she says I’ll “grow out of it”. I haven’t gotten the shots I legally need to go to school this year and I’m worried I’ll get kicked out. I haven’t had a checkup since I was 11. Or gone to the dentist. I have warts on my left hand that they won’t help me with either. I’ve also had breakouts of hives, heart palpitations, and muscle twitches from stress but my parents don’t care. Im almost 18 but I don’t know what to do. Please give me advice. Thank you.
