Brief Answer:
Possible Bacterial Infection. Use Mupirocin and Betamethasone cream.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

I suggest that this could be a dermatitis. If not, it might be a bacterial infection.

I feel that mupirocin cream with Betamethasone (a steroid) twice daily will resolve the issue.
Mostly, these cream combinations are available over the counter,
So, please apply this cream and let me know how you stay later on.
This should solve your problem.

Thanks,
Dr. Neel Kudchadkar

Hi! I am a 44 year old woman who was diagnosed with Mono approx 1 mo ago. initially I was feeling malaise, exhaustion and my throat swelled up w soreness and I lost my voice. I was diagnosed with Strep, tx with Amoxicillan and then 6 days on the antibiotic I started getting random welts on my body, very itchy and pins and needles type feeling on the palms of my hands and soles of my feet. I then broke out in a rash. So I took myself off the Amox. thinking I may be ahving an allergic reaction and took Benadryl. Being I was away I came home 9 days after tat still feeling malaise. rash not so bad but the itchy palms and feet were still there. My throat swelled up again and I went bk to the MD. he then drew titers for Scarlet fever and Mono. I was then diagnosed with Mono! I was told fluids, bedrest and Zyrtec D as well as Advil for pain. I am starting to feel like myself however, the itcy and pins and needles feeling in both palms of my hands and feet have reappeared. I tend to still get random welts that don t hurt or itch, they just appear like blotches and disappear after some time. I am concerned that these symptoms are not a part of this diagnosis. What else could it be? Thanks...Maria

I had a shingles shot on 1/7/14. The soreness and slight rash has diminished. Lat night I had a headache. This morning I woke up with the same headache and I am dizzy. Is this a side affect and how long will it last? And what can I do about it? Thank you, Donna Means
