Hi and welcome. It would be helpful if you send a photo of such blister. It may be herpes infection, but also, foliculitis, molluscum or allergic reaction. you should apply mild steroid ointment and keep area clean and dry. Also, aloe vera cream maz help and antihistamine cream such as Synopen. Wish you good health. Regards

I woke up with a red mark on my lower lip. It looks like a hematoma, and does not hurt. I get red marks on my arms and hands if I bump into something or hit something. It looks like that on my lip It is not herpes simplex. I have put aloe vera on it and it doesn t seem to help, even tried Abreva.

I have had hemorrhoids for past 5 months...they come and go but for the past one month they were really bad so i took them seriously and got all measures to combat them. I ate raw garlic and applied aloe vera gel and seemingly they have shrunk to 25% of what they used to be. But now I have severe itching after my motion everyday and my anus and surrounding area is a little dry. During my itching i feel the need to stick a finger inside anus where I feel the itch really is...I have taken medicine for pin worm 4 months back and for yeast infection 10 months back. I have never bled during my motion but I can usually see a thin stripe of blood in my stool... Please guide me?

Hello Doctor, My baby is 10 days old and having a white discharge from left eye and rashes of red patches with white in the middle on body. What could be the reason ?

I have already submitted my question to you. Red rash sounds like my symptoms, though it is not Red unless rubbed, aggravated. Clear bumps that get larger, very itchy. I try not to scratch or rub, but the itching is intolerable.

I am a 25 year old female. No history of digestive issues. A few weeks ago, I started having pain associated with my Gallbladder. It wasn't sever enough for my doctor to be worried, but she suggested a diet to help. Along with that diet, I started taking 8oz of Aloe Vera Juice daily. Yesterday, I woke up with sever stomach/intestine cramps. I have had diarrhea that is black. It is chalky... like coffee grinds. The diarrhea continued all day yesterday and this morning. I've read this could be caused by bleeding in the upper GI. Should I be worried or is this a side effect of the Aloe Vera? How long until I should seek medical help?

Hello Doctor! I am a female aged 27 yrs from India. I have sensitive skin since birth which breaks out into rashes in contact with dust, heat, sweat, pollen, insect bite, etc. I am prone to dust and pollen allergy as well. My current problem area is my neck and the base of neck. It started two weeks back when I went out in the strong summer sun. The area became reddish-maroon, itchy and subsequently started burning. I applied ice, aloe vera and other natural cooling agents thinking its a sunburn. It healed after a few days with dead skin peeling off. However, the same problem has resurfaced two days back though this time I have taken all precaution to cover every inch of my skin before stepping out in the sun. Constant sweating due to humid Indian conditions is making my condition worse and the burns more sore. Please help!! The marks look ugly and hurt and burn every time it comes in contact with even clothes!!
