General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
This is very common during summer either due to allergy or due to heat and perspiration.
Wear cotton clothes so that sweating will be absorbed.
Use zink calamin lotion or good prickley heat powder.
After taking bath clean the skin with towel forcibly so that all spores in the skin remain open.
ok and bye.

Dear Ram Mohan,
Your symptoms suggest of abscess formation or boil, and this is seen during summer season more or it increases in summer, Homeopathy can help you to cure this condition, with out any surgical procedure. Medicines like Hepar sulph 3x, silica 3x etc will help.
Do consult a qualified homeopath near your town..and follow his instructions
thank you

Hello, I am a 18 year old female and i have recently been noticing flat reddish rashes that are at least an inch or two apart from another and have been appearing on my neck, stomach, back, foot(top), shoulder , arm, ear,face, and thigh. Some are small and some are larger but within them they have raised smaller bumps and they do ITCH . At first it looked like a ringworm bt now it does not. I m not allergic to anything (not that i know of) but i have been using creams such as; Cortizone*10 and Tinactin for about a week now. I noticed it started to clear up but it still appears in other places and then seems to come back. At first they just started off as small bumps that looked like normal bumps or pimples, but when i apply the creams they start to clear up for awhile but then they start looking draker and wrinklely. Can someone please help?

i HAVE A SON, WHO IS GROWN, HE HAS ALLERGIES. EVERY SINCE HE WAS A BABY, HE HAS RASHES ON BACK OF NECK, ARM CRESS, AND BACK OF LEG JOINT AREA, ALSO. IT NEVER WENT AWAY, AND HE KNOWS SOME OF HIS TRIGGERS FOR ALLERGIC REACTIONS. BUT he WAS NEVER TESTED FOR ALLERGIES. Now he has an area stretching the length of his back left leg. But it looks different, and he stated it itches, and he scratches it a lot. I advised him to see a doctor, but so far he has not. It worries me a lot, because as far as I know he has never had a skin reaction from his allergies,on this large an area of his body. It is sores with a dark area underneath, and it has obviously spread. He is in the sun a lot, and I was kinda worried. What else should I be looking for??? I am so nervous about this condition, and what it could be.

I m 44, F, 200lbs., 5 7. My medical history includes asthma, which is controlled, I have seasonal allergies, oesteoarthritis, ADD, migraines and some neck and back issues. I ve had recent bloodwork done and everything is fine there. I take medications for asthma, ADD, acid reflux, muscle relaxers and a variety of pain medicine. I m having a few problems all of them about my nose and sinuses. I moved from Ohio down to Alabama 6 months ago. I m getting ready to go back soon. Right before I left I started having problems with my right sinus. When it started, it was just at night but now it sometimes lasts on and off in the day as well. It s as if it s swelling shut where I can t breathe out of it. But there s nothing in it. I m not blowing out anything and there s nothing draining. Another problem is that there seems to be scabbing in both nostrils at the openings and just up in a little way. They re extremely sore. Next is on the edge of nostril towards the tip of my nose, there s a knot or bump. It is really sore. I thought it was a pimple at first or an ingrown hair. Well the scabbing and the bump both went away eventually, but now they have come back again. I don t know what is going on or what to do about it. At least how to make any of it more comfortable until it goes away. I plan on seeing a ENT when I get back to Ohio, but if you could help me out for now I d really appreciate it. Thank you
