hi its me, the buggy stressed out lady. i have been on keflex 500mg 4x a day for 20 days, then 3 for a week, then 2, now last week 1 a a day. i went to a dermotilogist she spent about 10 minutes total. no blood or any tests, she said it was stress. my sores start as itchy blisters. i scratch, clean with soap. do this 2-3 times, then a scab forms. the scab has hard dot in it. if left alone the sores get to the size of a quarter, hard and purple. the ones "i pick to clean and get dot out" seem to be healing. although, the skin will peel around wound and the color is grayish. if i squeeze it will fill with puss. now. today, i picked a new one on my belly, out of 1 pore came a thread like sticky string. about 1mm wide, but although it broke in pieces, about 5 in long. and it left a perfect round sore down to the silver skin.once the silver skin showed, no more blood. i think i need to see a infectious diease Dr. any comments? please...........,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,
pss. i needed more stress so since xmas i got 4 puppies. i noticed the sores after getting the second one. all have a clean bill of health. also, last comment promise, i had some permethrin cream left from the 1st dr so i put it on my hands which have sores for months and hard, i can't relieve them at all. i put the cream on, and with in a hour the dot came out easy.
It could be eczema, sweat dermatitis, allergic reactions or eczema.
You need to wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.
Apply calamine lotion at the site of the lesions and see if it helps. You could take some oral antihistamine medications like cetrizine or loratadine. You need to maintain a good personal hygiene .
Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin.
For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide).
Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms.
