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

I recently had an excision for a superficial spreading melanoma, that did start growing veritically, from my upper right shoulder on my back. I still have stitches and am waiting for this pathology to determine if the margins are clear. Since the excision I have veins that are becoming darker blue under that right arm pit, shoulder and chest area. Even after lots of sunblock and reapplication I did get a sunburn, however the joint of my shoulder and armpit meet where one of these dark blue veins are I burnt around the vein but did not burn on nor about 1/4-1/2 an inch all around this vein. Is this normal or something I should contact the doctor who did my excision? I don t want to bother him if unnecessary, but has been a week since excision and have one more week till I go back to see him.

i am suffering from severe sunburns on my face and hands. Though I apply sunscreen while going out (SPF 50+) I still get sun burns. I am on treatment for curing sunburn. I was applying triglow cream mixed with a moisturizer during day time as well as night about 5 months back as a treatment for hyperpigmentation. I am worried if this sun burn is a side effect of triglow cream. How long will triglow cream have effect on my skin? When will i stop getting sunburns?
