Hello,

It is unlikely to be due to PMS. As a first line management, you can apply low potency steroid creams like Betamethasone for symptomatic relief. If the lesion persists, it is better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.

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

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician

Started out as several small pea sized bumps under the skin on my upper labia majora (sp) on Thursday. These bumps did not cause pain but felt bruised when I lightly pushed on them and there was visible swelling on the right majora. It covers approx. a quarter size, but more of a rectangle or oval. in three days it has stayed the same size but the bumps have gone away and now it is just raised puffy skin (looks like a hive) that is a little dry & red. I took a hot bath and the the bumps under the skin are still there but not as prevalent and only have the bruised feeling when I press hard. The skin is rather smooth. It has never caused pain, itching, or discharge , I have been paying close attention. Additionally, I do not know if this matters but I feel ill to my stomach and not very hungry, but I could be PMS ing too.

Since last year, I ve been getting hives all over my face. After I take a shower, my face would always show it. It is always so itchy, red and you can see a patch of red skin that juts out, which I believe are hives. I ve been to my doctor, but he believes it is just my eczema so he has prescribed me some medicated lotion (pms-desonide cream 0.05%) and pills if my face gets uncontrollably itchy (hydroxyzine hcl). But since then I ve been using the lotion a lot and I m worried that I m using it too much on my face... Especially on my eyelids since I ve read on the internet that I shouldn t be using it too much. I want to find out if this is really eczema or is it something that I am allergic to? I don t want to keep on using the lotion on my face nor taking the pills. I am also wondering if I should go see an allergist to test what I may be allergic to? Thanks for your help!!!
