Hello,

It could be a pustule. Nothing much to worry and it will heal once the fluid is cleared.
If there are signs of infection, antibiotics have to be started.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I saw my family doctor about 8 weeks ago because I had a mild rash on my arms above the elbow , in addition to one on both ankles. He gave me a cream to use, triamcinolone acetonide . So far, it hasn t made a lot of difference. Then, just in the last three weeks, I developed a raised, leathery red rash on my lower back and buttocks . None of this really itches other than occasionally on my legs. I normally have an itchy dry rash in the winter months when the humidity is low. I think my doctor thought this was dermatitis .

I am a 57 year old lady. Last year during a general check up my ECG revealed myocardial ischemia. My cholesterol and triglycerides levels were well within limits. I have been taking cardace 1.25 mg and ecosprin 75mg since then as advised by my physician. This year, that is on 2nd March I again opted for a general check up and found to my dismay that my total cholesterol (278 mg/dl) and triglycerides (189 mg/dl) levels had gone up. I have been now prescribed Lipikind. Also I have been given iron supplement as my Haemoglobin is 10.3 gms%. On the morning of 4th March (1 am to 2 am) I was having racing heart syndrome with heavy palpitation and very high pulse rate. My hands became numb and most part of my body had become cold. I became normal after 45 mts after my husband pressed/massaged my foot and leg. During the period when I had the syndrome I was constantly talking loudly about safety of my family etc. I visited the toilet immediately therafter and was completely relieved for the night. On the forenoon of 6th March around 11 am when I was just relaxing lying down after lunch the symptom of palpitation started. Immediately I pressed each palm with the other and massaged my fingers. The symptom died down after 10 minutes. My search on the Internet only shows that there are many out there having the symptom and have been living with it for even up to 3 years. But I just want to rule out some of the oft mentioned causes such as Thyroid problem, Magnesium deficiency and Mitral valve prolapse. I am told by a relative that a doctor in Mumbai says that this may be due to the new drugs (Lipidkind) I have started taking only some 4 days back and that this symptom will wear off soon. But please advise me.
