I had what started out to be a spider bite consisting of a red raised circle with a dark spot in the middle. The next day 3 clear filled nodules appeared scattered within an inch of the place. This was on the front of my thigh and underneath the whole thing was a feverish looking red whelp. The next day whelp was larger and had 3 more clear nodules. Red whelp much larger. Now the muscle in my leg is spasming an internally hurts. The front part of my leg has been untouchable the whole time. Unable to wear slacks due to pain. One doctor said spider bite but puzzled by clear liquid filled nodules and the dermatologist doesn't know. Does anyone have a clue? This came up 2 or 3 days after vacationing in Orange Beach Al.View Thread

Just to give you a back story ill start from the beginning. I attended a wedding in early april and the following day I noticed my nodes on my neck were severely swollen. I received antibiotics and was told it would subside in 2 weeks but instead it was getting worst and I was having fevers throughout the day. I got several blood tests done and kept me in the hospital for a whole day since it's now been 3 weeks with a constant fever and my anxiety levels were really high. Eventually the fever subsided after a month and was determined as a viral infection but within that month I had high stress levels with a weight loss of 15 pounds. Two months later I start shedding excessive hair and literally everywhere this is a strand of hair and my floor is covered in hair! In the shower it's not as bad but when I comb my hair literally clumps come out. Its soo embarrassing having to try on clothes in the change room and leave with a puddle of hair on the floor. Its been a month and my hair is now thin and not the long hair that I use to have. I've gotten all the blood tests done and it came out normal so I'm now panicking thinking what if its chronic telogen but I'm hoping its not..please help with any thoughts or comments.View Thread

I am 32, 5'10", 150 pounds. I have been a vegetarian for about 15 months and since moving to Ireland from the states, I do drink more on the weekends. Other than that I eat healthy (more often than not) and I walk quite a bit. Anyhow, the issue is my skin seems to be getting worse and worse by the month when it comes to sagging. From my neck to my bum. I have lost weight in the past, which might explain a bit...but the worst has been happening over the last year and I've been around the same weight. I'm self conscience and feel horrible most days. I know it effects the relationship with my husband, besides myself. He loves to swim and is in great shape and I have been trying to avoid any outdoor activities that requires a bathing suit. I have even stopped working out at the gym over the last couple months over frustration, depression and hopelessness. Are there steps I can take to help firm my skin? Vitamins? More water? Thank you so much for your time.View Thread

I have been wearing glasses for a long time now, and for a few years I have noticed that the skin on my nose is about two or three shades darker than the rest of my face. I've always been too embarrassed to actually take off my glasses, and the skin on my nose hasn't gotten lighter at all over the years. Is there permanent damage to the skin on my nose? How can I even out my skin again? Please help!!View Thread

I'm a 30 year old male, and I've been actually trying to grow my hair for the first time since I was a teenager. I never paid much attention to hair shedding before, but lately it's become almost an obsession.
First off almost all hair I notice that comes out, whether I'm combing it or running my fingers through my hair , hair the bulb on the end.
Lately I've been getting an itchy scalp at times, and I scratch. Today tho I pulled the hairs where it itched, not too hard , but basically grasping the area between my fingers and pulled. I had about 15 hairs between my fingers. I've just lost that many hairs in a spot of one inch around.
I use shampoo and conditioner every other day or so. I don't use products, I don't style it, just a simple combing, and I let it air dry . As well I have a lot of hair I'm always told I'm very lucky.
I'm aware people lose from anywhere from 100 to 200 hairs a day, I seem to be at the higher end of that spectrum, but seeing these hairs come out like that frightened me. This is the second time it's happened and it's in my crown area.

I was just prescribed minocycline to treat my cystic acne - 50mg capsules, twice a day. I am worried about the possibility that the antibiotic will cause significant tooth staining. Is this something that usually occurs when one takes minocycline? Does doxycycline work the same way?View Thread

Recently, I've been having allergic reactions to everything I wash my face with. In September, I washed my face with Proactiv... a couple days later I used it again and my whole face broke out, was swollen, stinging, dry, and flaky... I started using some Olay face wipe I've used before and the same thing... Finally, I switched to Aveeno face wipes and it was fine. This week I ran out of Aveeno so I used some foaming face wash my mom had that I've used before, even since I broke out from the other and now my face is itchy, swollen, dry, flaky, and red. What could be causing this?? Someone told me it's because I quit smoking and my body chemistry is different.... could this be a factor? And how do I know what's causing the breakout so I can avoid it in the future?View Thread
I recently noticed a large (~ 1 cm in widest spot), asymmetrical, multicolored mole with irregular borders on my grandfather's face. He is a 92-year-old "redhead" who was a deck officer in the Merchant Marine during WWII, so he spent some time on deck shirtless around the equator, without the chemical sunscreens that we have now, and suffered some severe burns. For a while he was getting his moles checked regularly, and suspicious lesions were frozen or cut off, but when I commented on how suspicious his mole looks he admitted that he hasn't seen a dermatologist in one or two years. After a couple of reminders he scheduled a dermatology appointment, but it's not until the middle of July (about a month away). I'm suspecting that he did not tell the receptionist that he has a large, atypical mole. I really think he shouldn't wait a month. Given the size of the mole, his age, his sunburns as a youth, and the fact that he's a redhead, should he get his mole looked at/removed immediately, or is it OK if he waits a month?
I don't know how long he's had the mole. I did not notice it before last week but my sister is now saying she noticed it around Memorial Day. It is on the upper part of his cheek, partially obscured by his glasses so no other family members have noticed it.View Thread

My skin gets so oily that when my niece tries to pinch my cheeks her little fingers just slip off. And that's 30 minutes after washing moisturizing, etc. I use all oil free products and oil absorbing: moisturizer, makeup primer, powder, blotting papers, but nothing seems to work! I've also struggled with acne but it's been better as I've reached my mid 20's. Does anyone have any ideas or products that work to cut the oil slick on my face?View Thread
I am a very pale person, and actually I would be fine with that if I had pretty skin. But my skin is anything but- the main problem I have is small red bumps on my arms, mostly on the top near where the bicep is. (Always been like that.) At other places, there are just splotches and unevenness. Besides constant spray tans or intense tanning lotions that cover all the color of the natural skin, is there anything I can do to fix this? Thanks!View Thread
