I have a circular red bumpy itchy patch of skin that just appeared on my stomach a few days ago. There is only one and it doesn t appear to be spreading at the present time. Can you tell me what it might be and if there are any over the counter remedies that I could purchase? I am 61, 5 3 and about 125 lbs. I don t have a medical history because I have always been a very healthy person. I have been under a fair amount of stress as of late but I m not the stressed out kind of person either so I don t know if that could have anything to do with this irritant. Thank you

Hi, I have had UTI like symptoms for 5 years. I have had many, many cultures - all neg. I have also had a bladder ultrasound - again normal, I have tried creams for dermatitis etc. I just read recently that Latent TB can show symptoms of a UTI - 5 years ago - when symptoms first appeared, I was working in an orphanage in Central Asia (ex-soviet state) when drug resistant TB was rife and visiting children regularly in a TB hospital, so I have definitely been exposed. I had terrible pneumonia last year which took a long time to diagnose, and for a while they suspected TB but it didn t show up in my lungs. Could it still possible cause for my UTI - is it worth getting checked?

I am a female and am 12 years old and i have eczema(dermatitis). I have had these small red bumps and a rash on my left inner thigh. It really hurts when I walk. I have looked up a lot of info and some say it can be due to eczema. I usually always have rashes. I have had this rash with small red bumps for one week going on two weeks. I am super scared and nobody knows. I have put a warm washcloth with warm water on it for about a half hour and it just goes down a bit then starts again. I am not in any sexual incourse and I am super scared. Please help me. I dont know if it can get worse. Please.

I have a red rash on my chest. I was wondering if it could have been caused by red rice yeast. I had been taking one tablet until about two weeks ago, my gp suggested I up the dosage to two, then eventually three. I have not changed laundry detergent; in fact, I use the dye-free detergent. Could it be caused by a virus? Or is it dermatitis? I did have a rash on my hand this past spring which I thought was caused by contact with my horses hay. I was careful to use gloves and it went away. It seems to me I remember reading that yeast causes rashes. Thank you.
