Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The breaking out of sores all over the body after taking meth indicates that he might be allergic to the effects of meth. When you know the reason of scars it is better to avoid the causative agent. Still if he feels a compulsion then take an antiallergic and steroid half an hour before taking meth.

My little sister has lost about 40lbs, she gets hives of some type all over her body that swell up and pop but they disappear the next day leaving scars. She has a white blood cell count of 2000, docs just did bone marrow biopsy, waiting for results. She also has a very sore neck and her lower back hurts all the time. Could this be lukemia or multiple things?

Hello, I am a 25 year old African American woman. I have noticed small black spots (possibly moles although they are not raised) that have appeared on my back , sides, and stomach during the past few months. I also have scars along my back, parts of my chest , and around my armpits. I am unsure of these causes as I usually do not feel any itching, or even notice any bumps that would usually occur prior to the scarring. Any idea what this could be? I have yet to receive medical care due to low income and no insurance, so this is the first time I am seeking any form of assistance.

im not sure if i have herpes or a yeast infection i have had a dry throat for almost 5 weeks now, i often almost constantly have weak calves and sometimes my forearms also feel weak. i also get back, neck and chest (pecks) pain. at this stage i have no blisters or sores anywhere though i have had a small cluster of tiny white dots on my lips for almost this whole time. i also get an ichty anus and have mild constipation. it doesn t hurt when i urinate though my penis does sometimes randomly itch and sting. im scared and i cant find a defining factor on the internet because both have similar symptoms. i have had blood test for herpes but i know that was pointless because that was only two weeks after possible expossure.

My husband has sores very similar to herpes on his penis, testicles & groin area...he has seen an infectious disease dr. who thought it was a fungus. He has treated him w/anti-fungal cream but it is still here after 4 1/2 months. A culture of 6 scrapings have come up w/nothing...I do not feel this dr. has much concern or interest in his case??? We are frustrated & completely befuddled. He is 56 yrs old I am 50 (going through menopause-for about 3 yrs). In the past 2 yrs during sex there has been a dozen times that I have experienced very painful sensation to the clitoris during cunnilingus (feels like a razor blade cutting)? The dr. says it s not related. He says my husband s condition is not contagious even tho he doesn t know what is happening. This is the second outbreak, 1st one we thought was a herpes outbreak, that was last fall. But now this second is 4 months going strong? The outbreak looks mimics herpes in sores turning pustular then breaking open, very painful then healing over & the skin sloughing off...but it s ongoing! Please any information is greatly appreciated.

Dear Dr. Srinivasan

Name - Nitin

Age - 36

I have had recurring problem of red spots (isloated) on my penis head for 3-4 years. I have consulted many docs with varied diagnosis.

I was single then and made to believe it was fungal, it comes on its own and have been getting treated accordingly by a dermatologist.

Recently i got married and again recurringly had red infection on my penis. Along with this, my wife also developed infecion and was put under Gynea treatment, again for fungal infection and Fas Kit prescribed to both along with aplication of fungal infection creams. For the reason not transfering infection bw me and wife, we have stopped having intercourse (unprotected) however my wife was ok but I kept developing these red spots/ infection.

However on repeated occurances we consulted a different dermatologist and he suggested Herpes but blood test reports ruled out. However he insisted that indeed it is Herpes and sometimes the medical reports do not show the same. I was put on Famtrax 250 for 1 week along with application of topical anti-biotic(fusidic acid cream). The red spots kept going and coming but doc clamed it is Herpes geting cured and that takes time to cure as in past i have been exposed to steriod in form of anti-fungal creams. Post a week of Famtrax, i was put on antialergic and anti-biotic cream for a week.

the red spots have gone but now there is recurring white spots (small pimple types) which come and go. On showing to doc, he said its miliaria of penis and common and due to non drying of the area. I was asked to take urine test (culture and routine) and culture cam normal. Routine test pointed to some epidrmal cells (UT infection, I have mild recurring burning sensationtoo) and doc asked me to take Disodium Hydrogen Citrate (Alkasol) for a week. I am currently on Alkasol and Antialergic.

But the white spots are coming and going everyday still. I am not sure if im cured yet but doc says im fully cured but the white spots can be ignored and i can have unprotected sex with my wife.

Problem is i want to start a family soon but am confused due to various diagnosis. I do not want to pass on to my wife and abstain from sex.

Please suggest cure for white spots.

i wll be very greatful.



Kind regards

Nitin
