Many patients ask questions like yours, Heidi, but I've always been a little puzzled by them. How could an infection (whether from a wart, a virus, a bacteria, or a fungus) come and go over 5 years? And if this were contagious, how could it go so long without being transmitted to anybody?
The answer is that it couldn't, because it isn't an infection. An allergy is also very unlikely (again, what could you be using off and on for years which would correlate with these outbreaks.)
From your description, it sounds much more like eczema, which produces little blisters or bumps like the ones you describe, or else folliculitis ("blocked pores.") Each pf these may pop up from time to time in many people for no particular reason. Stress could be a factor as well, inducing burning and itch.
My advice: go to the driugstore and get some 1% hydrocortisone cream and some Sarna lotion or Benadryl cream. Apply the hydrocortisone twice a day to all affected areas, and one of the other two as needed for itch as many times a day as you want.
Also, make an appointment to show your rash and your baby's to a dermatologist for definitive diagnosis and management.
I forgot to mention.......
The warty appearance only appears on the palms of my hands and fingers. And these bumps seem to not break out as much if I wash my hand like 100 times a day. (Duh!)
My appologies but its been over 3 weeks and I cannot post. I"ve noticed blueness to my feet and toes, no pain involved or anything, i'll simply look down and notice. Saw my Dr and he said it was just an oxegen issue, im a taller woman and says take longer for the ovegen to reach, I was worried about Raynauds syndrom, apparently this is different? Anyhow is this some skin problem or is this nothing? Thanks for your time
Blueness without pain is just physiological (i.e. in the range of normal.) No matter how tall you are, your toes are not too far from the heart to get oxygen. Circulation slows down in the toe tips, leaving more time for tissue to extract oxygen and thus leave the blood looking bluer. Cold accntuates color change. Best advice: don't look.
Now this is embarrassing so bear with me. I've been diagnosed with Genital Herpes. (That part really sucked) But that's not what this is about. I just wanted to let you in on the 'diseases' I know that I have. Anywho, my partner, who's been updated, had a small nodule on her upper pelvic region. I noticed it and asked her about it and she had it checked out. The doc didn't make much of it and pulled the head off and it went away. This little nodule looked like a regular pimple, but looked as it had a small induction in the middle of the head. Her's never returned, but now, I have a small army of these little sucker all over my pelvic region (about nine at least.) All look similar to what she had. Now I've tried to pop the little buggers, like her doctor did, but mine become agitated and simply come back, kinda like a zit that you try to pop. I thought that these might be some kinda warts or something so I tried some Compound W..nothing. the doc gave me something called Condylox (i think fo th treatment of genital warts) All that di was irritate the skin and they didn't go away. Wanna shed some light on this subject??? Please???
For years now I've had little red dots on my thights that will not go away. I have also notice that my sister has them as well. any suggestions on what it could be?
