Brief Answer:
Skin lesion on finger

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

This skin lesion on your right finger could be due to some fungal infection or dermatophytosis.Is there nay itching or any similar lesion on any other parts of your body?
It is better if you can consult a dermatologist .At least skin scraping can be subject to KOH preparation for any fungal hype .It does not look like any chancre or primary syphilitic lesion.

Hello Doctor,

Thank you for taking up my question.

Itching does happen on the other parts of the body.

Upon Scratching it becomes red and also there appears a small cut like thing especially on fingers.

I also attached another picturewhich is placed on my right arm just above the wrist.

I also feel my left hand is pumping as in some beating vibratons i feel.

Brief Answer:
Skin lesions following unprotected sex

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.
Your skin lesion on forearm above the wrist looks like Molluscum contagiosum which can occur singly and the causative virus may be transmitted
by sexual contact.

Skin lesions following unprotected sex

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

You need to see a dermatologist to confirm diagnosis.

There is no specific systemic treatment for molluscum contagiosum.
In most cases, the disease is self-limited and regresses spontaneously after 3–4 months in immunocompetent hosts.
Topical cidofovir may have some efficacy in the treatment of recalcitrant molluscum contagiosum.

My 68 year old husband has a history of kidney stones. He had a lithotripsy 4 days ago for a kidney stone after having a stent placed for a week prior. The stone was intially lodged in the ureter but was too high to have a basket retrieval so it was pushed back into the kidney for the later lithotripsy. He was taken off Plavix and ASA he takes for 2 prior heart attacks. He was taking Hydrocodone every 4 hours for pain. He also has a hx of prostate cancer successfully treated by proton therapy. The stent was removed yesterday. He developed low abdominal discomfort, lethargy, loss of appetite and a low grade temp. He is voiding without difficulty. IVP was done today along with a urinalysis, CBC and chem profile but all is normal. Waiting on urine culture results. IM Rosefin and PO Ceclor was started today. He continues with the low grade temp, now no higher than 100.8 but has no appetite (is drinkining) and falls asleep at the drop of a hat. He is currently taking Acetaminaphen for the temp above 100, Ceclor 3x/day and Protonix. MD does not think problem could be a fungal infection. Just waiting now for urine culture results but my husband is miserable in the meantime. Any thoughts?

Hello Doc, I ve had an ear infection from past 3-4 yrs. The 1st time i visited a Dr. He gave me candibiotic eardrops for 21 days twice daily. The same came back after 2 months. When i visited the doctor, he prescribed the same medicine for the same period. But since then it keeps coming back. I am worried that the ear Infection(starts with itch then watery and then painful) is not getting cured by that medicine .. More over i feel it might have gotten immune to this particular medicine. He initially said it looks like fungal infection as i had dandruff. Should i continue with candibiotic ?
