I had a rash in my hair line in middle of forehead. Went to dermatologist and she really didn t know what it is. She game me a steroid shot and cream. The rash and redness is almost gone but the itch is awful. Got the shot four days ago. The itching is driving me crazy. I go back on Feb. 24, 2016. Any idea what it could be. Started out looking like broken blood vessels. Thanks! The spot is about the size of a quarter. I have some pin head size red spots as well. My entire forehead is itching now.

I also have patches of dry, itchy, redness on forehead and cheeks, they dry and flake up and when I remove the dead skin from the forehead, it looks like a shiny red spot. I ve tried olive oil, baby lotion, tea bags on it. I am on several medications, but will a antibiotic help, and maybe fungus cream. Could this be internal or lack of vitamin. This is very itchy, I have to take benadryl but it only relieves the itching for a while. What can I do.

Hi, I have a spot on my forehead that flares up once every like six months. It s right above my left eye. It starts out being red and itchy and then it starts to get raised up and fill with puss. Over the course of a couple days it becomes a very large bump. I ve had this twice before and went to my doctor. He prescribed me an antibiotic and gave me muniprocin to put on it. I can t remember what the antibiotic was called. Once I start the antibiotic and muniprocin, the puss starts to come out and get crusted. It s yellowish in color. Eventually the spot scabs up and heals, but it takes a few weeks for it to completely heal. I want to know what is causing this and how it can be avoided. Originally my doctor told me it was a pimple that got infected, but that can t be the case since this is the third time it s happened in the exact same spot. I know for a fact I didn t have a pimple there and didn t pick anything. Thanks for your help!

Hi Dr, I am a 45 year old male with a history of factor five laden. But have been off my warfarin for more than 3 years on doctor's advice. Haven't had any additional problems in the last few years, however, the last few days I have a sore lower inner thigh, running from under my groin to knee as a red sunburn or rash that is sore to touch (feels bruised). It has grown from a small patch to the knee in the last two days. The muscle also feels sore. I cycle and did so on Fri and Sat (the bruising feeling started Sat morning) I had originally thought the bruising pain was from my young son kicking my thigh with his shoes on but it seems to be getting worse. Other than that I feel no other symptoms. Can you give me some advice? Thanks

I have what I believe is a brown recluse spider bite on my right shoulder next to my armpit. This happened early Friday morning. I developed a bright red rash like a really bad sunburn Friday night all over my body. I went to the ER Saturday because I was dizzy, had nausea, and red. They prescribed meds for allergic reaction. It started to lesson in redness but this morning. It was just as bright red and has stayed that way all day. I now have purplish spots on my stomach and what look to be blisters on the left side of my stomach.
