Hi,

As per your query you have symptoms of sore skin patches that look like scrap which seems to be due to infection of a hair follicle and the surrounding skin. It could be due to low immunity in general or due to some underlying disease.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you consult a dermatologist for proper examination and rule out any underlying condition. The doctor may prescribe antibiotics like clarithromycin at least for a week along with anti-inflammatory and vitamin supplement to boost the immunity. For now apply warm compresses, apply kojic acid cream on the patch and eat a healthy diet for immunity. If the patch doesn't go then go for laser therapy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist

All of a sudden my skin from face to feet got hot and red. My hands turned white and the circulation in my hands did not seem right. I got the chills and became very cold and shaky. I took a shower because I thought maybe it was from a body lotion but I have been using it for several weeks. It is called gold bond. This happened on Sunday and again just an hour ago. I have no idea what is going on

I have had deep cysts in my underarms and upper inner thigh area. They are often painful and drain either by pressure or on their own. They typically appear right before I menstruate. I have a cream to apply for treatment but I am wondering if I can get microdermabrasion to help with the discoloration from scarring and for just a smoother unclogged underarm.
