My daughter(age 10) just mentioned she cannot see for a couple of seconds because of some white spots in her vision . I asked her further questions and she says she gets some pain in back of head towards the neck and the white spots are bright. It happens frequently like almost every day. She wears glasses for near signtedness (+1) and astigmatism(1.25). Her eye pressure is also borderline high despite adjusting it to corneal thickness (21-22). Both pain and white spots incident occur together and lasts only a couple of seconds. It sounds very scary. Should I rush her to an ophthalmologist or general practitioner? Or is it normal?

i was diagnosised with thyroiditis 3 years ago. I have been on synthroid for almost 3 years. But before that, I had an infection and was placed on oral doxycycline. we have a pool and i was out in the pool all weekend with sunscreen on. Then my daughter and i went to the beach, stayed about 2 hours, walking around and sitting on the beach. no problems. then on our way home, i started to get sick, nausa and diarrhea. by the end of the night, i was having chills and teeth chattering. thought it was from dehydration, but i was hydrated through out the day. ever since then, every time i am in the sun and get a slight redness, i go through the same thing again. it has been going on for 3 1/2 years. no one seems to know what is the problem. i have been tested for lupus, and so far it has come back negagtive. I also had a ct scan to rule out carsonoid syndrom. That was negative also. I am going to be tested again in december for lupus. not sure if anyone else has anything similar to this. my doctor doesn t know where to go from here, but she keeps trying to find something by reading.... so for now, i mainly hibernate in the house on hot days. boo boo, cuz i like the sun! also something i forgot, I am on hormone replacement and it has helped with alot of the red face with being in the heat. so who knows what is the problem... any suggestions?

hi! so im a tan addict and i tan alot. i recently was tanning (in a tanning bed!) using a tingle lotion and a day later i noticed little white spots everywhere on my tummie and back. I googled this and realised that it could possibly be Tenia Versicolor. But is it possible that its just a reaction from the tingle lotion and i shouldnt worry? however, if it is tenia versicolor, i already know i can use antefungal creams (Etc) but i also know that isnt gonna make it go away for ever. is there a way that i can get rid of tenia versicolor for ever? a pill or shot maybe?
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.
