Brief Answer:
click pictures and upload them

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
I would like to see the picture of rash you can click and upload them.
PCOD patients have higher chances of skin problems.
Also I would like to know if
- the rashes have any relation with periods?
- do they itch or ache?
In case they look like acne then just clean your face several times a day and you can apply clindamycin ointment.
If just a itchy patch of redness then apply lactocalamine lotion before sleeping at night and they will go themselves.
Just upload some pictures so that I can advise accordingly.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
acne related to PCOD

Detailed Answer:
Hello, yes they are acne and typically PCOD related as more often errupts just before periods.
These black spots will vanish away themselves in 2-3 months and don't try to pick them in an attempt to remove them as it will worsen the scar.

Just apply clindamycin two tomes a day on newly erupted pimples for 2-3 days.
But in case they worsen then visit your gynecologist so that she can prescribe you pills after examination so as to control PCOD disease process as a whole.
All the best

My daughter was complaining of feeling sick yesterday and was coughing and acting like she wanted to throw up. She threw up a little last night and is still coughing today. She complained that her face was itchy and I noticed she developed a small rash on her cheek near her eye.

My 16 month old has an infected crack on his thumb from thumb sucking. It was red and swollen and had small rashy bumps around it. He received a Rocephin shot in the Dr. office and is now on Keflex for 10 days, this is day 3. The same time this infection appeared, he developed a rash on his feet and legs: red, raised bumps, that do not appear to be bothering him. The rash has now spread to his arms, hands, and face as well. He has also started to have freqent explosive diarrhea that has absolutely NO odor. Could all this be related to the infection? No fever, and the rash started prior to any antibiotic use.

I am a 50 yr old female. I have developed a a rash with about 5 pea sized bumps spread across my arm. The rash itches sometime but not all the time. Then this morning I started feeling nauseous and have been vomiting all day. I also get very dizzy when I stand like my equilibrium is off. What could be wrong?

Hi, doctor My daughter had her 5 year old vaccination on the 10 of January , after a couple of weeks I noticed a red rash on her legs and then her arms and the stomach, basically it spread all over her body except her face. I then took her to a pharmacist and he gave me a liquid form cortazan, medicine name is pre lone , it then started going away and as soon as she was running around and jumping up and down the jungle gyms did the rash come back really aggresively and now on her face it was very red, we then took her to a doctor and he told me she has a allergic reaction to something, but she has never had this before, I never changed her diet or the washing powder, it has been ever since the vaccination. The rash then started going away since giving her the medicine. But 3days now the rash has come back, it goes away and comes back and sometimes worse then the other times, but not as red, but itchy. Please help
