Hi, my two year old daughter always has one pimple with a white tip somewhere on her body at all times. Once the pimple pops and starts to heal another one shows up somewhere else on her body. She has had them on her face, legs, chest, and butt. This has been going on for about 7 months. There is no other rash or any other symptoms. Any idea what this could be from. Thanks, RC

My 89 year-old husband has heart congestion, before and after, a cardio-thoracic 12 - hour surgery (12/12) by Dr. Gregory Dehmer at Scott-White Hospital,Temple, Texas. He has made a slow but pretty good recovery in spite of his many health issues. Right now the primary health issue is a heavy rash that could be identified as Hives, the little red bumps on his chest, neck, arms and legs turn into whelps and glow red hot at night and early in the morning. We have been trying to relieve the terrible itching by spraying those areas with Walgreens spray bottle of Burn Relief. It is just barely keeping him from clawing through the skin. I first identified the rash as poison oak, poison Ivy or poison Summac. since he is spending much of his time in the back forty, and just resting on the porch.The docs here laugh at my diagnosis, but really I am pretty sharp on just figuring out the pfoblem The latest wise guess from the docs is that it might be hives, but from what resource? He s taking two Claritins in a 24-hour period; he has been injected three times with steroids, ha has taken one round of Prednisone. Can you give me any ideas on what it really might be, because I know we wont be able to successfully help the condition until we do. Phyllis R. Moses

Well,I have a question that is now related to a sunburn I received on my forehead that resulted in discoloration. I do not know where to turn and I can t afford to see a derm =[ Ok, long story short, I went hiking in Yosemite and received a sunburn on my shoulders and forehead (I didn’t wear any sunscreen). My shoulders have peeled and look normal now, however, my forehead actually formed blotches of tender pink. I noticed this a couple days after hiking, that there were a few patches on my forehead that were actually lighter in color than the rest of my face (somewhat pinkish). I then applied aloe vela for the next week, along with sunblock, and stayed out of the sun as much as possible. I never stayed in the sun for extended periods of time. After one week of doing this, the patches on my forehead are no longer pink, but still somewhat lighter than the rest of my face—my face is tan, and the patches are lighter tan. (not terribly lighter, but it is noticeable if you look at it in the right angle) =( Just in case this helps, I am a very tan person and never really get sunburned. My questions are: 1. What exactly happened to my forehead? Is this a normal result of sunburn? 2. Is this going to scar? Will the skin patches on my forehead ever return back to the same color as the rest of my face? 3. Am I taking all the right steps in treating my face? Sunblock, aloe vera? What else should I be doing? Sorry for all the questions, but ANY help/advice would be appreciated. Am I overreacting since it’s only been 2 weeks? It is just making me worry a lot and almost insecure since I am afraid it might last like this forever or a verrry long time. Worried Ron

My husband has been having a burning sensation on the upper left side of his head for the past month or so. He asked me to check his head out, and when I looked, it was a little red, almost like a sunburn. When I got to looking closer, I noticed that there were a few pimple-like bumps there. He says that he is miserable, and can t get it to go away. He has tried easing the burning sensation with a cold wet cloth, but that only lasts temporarily. I, myself am worried for him too. We are almost positive that this isn t sunburn, due to the fact that this has been occurring for over a month now. If this helps to know-- in the year of 2000 he was in a very traumatic car accident. He was a marine and was on leave and got into a wreck on his way home. His car flipped off of the overpass on the highway and he was in the backseat. He died on scene and got rushed to the hospital, and died several times, but the doctors were able to bring him back. From this accident, he was diagnosed with head injuries and was unable to return to the corps and finish his service in for the U.S. I don t know if that has anything to do with it, but I thought I would add that in there just in case. Please help!
