I have had bad acne for almost a year and have been treating it for five months with no success, it s actually getting worse. Just recently I have developed dime sized puss sacks on my skin , and some turn black underneath the skin. I decided to pop one, and white puss and blood came out, I proceeded to pop it and blood mixed with some kind of black liquid came out. Does anyone know what this black substance could be, and is it normal? I have had black heads, and this I assure you is not a black head.
Hi,thanks for query.It is possible that it might not be a pimple but sebaceous cyst.It is a bag like structure and contains jelly like substance.When gets infected if gets swollen with black point in it and gives rise to pain and discomfort.For your acne there are antibiotics tablets that you need to take on weekly basis for 6-8 weeks,please talk to your doctor about this.Avoid oily food,wash your face frequently.bye.

Friend has a penis that is turning a black color in spots and he has white puss oozing from bumps on the sides. He just quit drinking, of which he was a major alcoholic, and coke, and/or crack addict. He has been sober since, jan. 1st, as far as we know. He said he has no family history of this, and is only 44 years old. I have seen an alcoholics nose turn a blackened color and am wondering if this could have anything to do, with this abnormality. He said his Doctor has never seen anything like this before and are clueless of what to do for him.
My husband is 70. Over the last few years his calves have turned black and he is now getting cyst like pusses on top. His dermatologist and another told him that it was old age, not exercising enough, etc and nothing can be done. His calves will always be black because of circulation issues. He likes to wear shorts and find disgusting but very concerned that circulation might effect his heart. Their suggestion is to wear circulation socks all the time. Is there a specialist that he could consult to get a better track on this? Thank you. Marianne
I was clinically diagnosed with epilepsy a few days ago and I'm still taking time for the news to sink in. I'm feeling very scared and confused, and have one particular reason to doubt my diagnosis and ask for a second opinion.
My first seizure (2 years ago and dismissed as a panic attack) and a subsequent cluster of 7/8? over 2 days last Oct, always begin untypically?
I get a sudden claw like cramp in my left hand and then it bends back on me and I get an excruciating pain, like i'm being electrocuted, which travels up from my hand to my shoulder. My arm 'contorts' as the pain travels upwards and I have no control over it. It's like my arm is not my own and it has the power to push me sideways or down to the floor. While this is happening I have an overwhelming fear that I'm going to die and this terrifies me!
I think it takes about 10 seconds for the pain to reach my shoulder and then I pass out.
I wake up/come round feeling very depressed or in tears and with no memory of what's just happened. After some period of time (have no idea how long) my memory of 'the event' comes flooding back to me, I find I have bitten my tongue, lip and/or inside cheek and can't remember things such passwords or even my date of birth!
All of my hospital tests were clear, but from my description of what was happening to me, the neurologist said it is typical of focal epilepsy affecting and beginning in the right side of my brain (hence the left side symptoms) progressing quickly to a generalised seizure affecting the whole on my brain.
I've done a lot of research about epilepsy, so I understand what was explained to me, but I haven't found any reference to my personal experience of any 'convulsion' or extreme pain before loss of conciousness?
I've been prescribed medication (Trileptal) but I'm reluctant to take it as my last seizure was five months ago. My neurologist asked me if I wanted to take medication and I said yes. She then reeled off the names of three meds so quickly I can't remember what they were. I said I would like the medication with the least side effects, the neurologist then explained about a side affecting contraception, but explained nothing else.
I feel I was in no position to make an informed decision regarding medication and have susequently found that Tileptal is the worst medication for me in terms of side effects regarding hair loss and acne.
Futhermore, my neurologist went on a month's leave the day after my consultation. I rang the departments epilepsy nurse, expressing my concerns but she couldn't help, as the neurologist had made minimal notes!
I really don't know what to do. I live alone with my 2 sons aged 9 and 11, and I don't know how this medication could affect me as it does mention in the advice leaflet that it may increase seizures?
After rushing to make my Dr s appointment yesterday, for a little acne problem, they took my BP and it was 102 over 82. I complain to my doctor about my constant tiredness, but he just laughs it off (like people would kill for your blood pressure ). I am a 74 yr old femaleand it gets harder to get things done (I live by myself). Any drugs or OTC meds I can take to be less tired? Could a low dose of Adderal help? My heart rate is 50 ! Erika
I'm a 25 year old Asian woman. I have had constipation and acne problems all my life. I eat a lot of veggies, fruits and wholegrain. I've been taking fibre supplements too but nothing helped. In the last few years I also have irregular period, but this time its my longest (5 months since my last period). I've seen doctors and did blood test, they think I have pcos, but the ultrasound showed I have no cyist. Lastly I've heard about gluten intolerant, and this can lead to all my problems, is it true gluten can cause constipation, acne and miss period? how do I know for sure that I am allergic to gluten?
