Surgical Scars Non Itchy Rash

by Andrea

I had gall bladder surgery over a year ago. About 6 months after the surgery I started getting a local rash around each one of the small scars on my abdomen (except the one in my bellybutton which was healing better than the others), and also on my wrist where the IV was for the operation.

The rash does not itch around those scars. However, for the first time since living in Africa (very hot most of the time), I have started getting a similar rash on my breasts and belly from time to time. It seems to happen when I am hot, and it is sometimes raised a little, but doesn't itch.

I asked a medical intern who happened to be staying in my house about it and she said it is probably just that my skin is sensitive.

Why would my skin be sensitive in only those places? Could something have happened (allergy, etc.) during the operation? It was done here in Africa, by the way. Am I just getting older? I just turned 40 this year.

I really want a solution as it seems to be getting worse and I have another year here in the heat. Anyone?

Itchy Rash on Gallblader Surgery Scar?
by: Anonymous

I have a rash where my gallblader surgery scar is located - right below the left breast. It is raised and itchy. Does anybody know what can cause this? I had breast cancer on that same breast 16 years ago. Could it be related?

Reccuring Hive Type Skin Rash

by Darrel
(Bakersfield Ca.)

I have suffered from a severe rash that covers spots as large as a saucer and larger over many parts of my upper body. I have been to 2 dermatologists and 2 allergist and have been treated with steroid creams of nurmerous types. The only thing that temporarily clears the rash is oral prespcription prednisone. The rash usually returns after a few days to a couple of weeks after the treatment finishes.

I've had a few skin test and I have already tried to determine if the rash was caused by products such as laundry soaps, etc. After about 6 years there is still no permanent relief. The current treatment the dematologist has prescribed is something called light treatments. I've had only 2 so far but they seem to be basically like a tanning bed. It's been a frustrating struggle and the light treatments have not caused the rash to clear. It has become almost impossible to lead a normal life. It's my hope that no one else ever has to suffer as I have.

For those suffering from a hives rash, usually characterized as a colourful, itchy, and bumpy rash, then the following natural treatments may help:

Mononucleosis Skin Rash

by Anonymous

I have been on amoxicillin/clavulanate (augmentin) for 5 days and then yesterday I thought I got poison ivy doing yardwork. Today when I woke up my groin area was covered in a rash and I thought it was from chafing while going on a long bike ride yesterday. I stopped the medicine but wonder about the rash. Based on some of the internet reading I've done, it seems it's possible that I have mono and that is what is causing the rash, with the antibiotic. It's not itchy, so I guess it could be worse, but I am just not sure what it is or what to do.

Itchy Hives and Welts Skin Problem

by Anonymous

I have been having this itchy problem for 4 months now. Four months ago I would wake up itchy, usually on the back of my legs and I would get welts that are very itchy. I would usually get the problem in the evening. The skin problem consists of very itchy welts that grow large and spread all over my body. My eyes and lips even get swollen. This skin problem happens every night except the swelling of the eyes and lips does not always occur, it's just the hives all over the body that are more consistent.

I tried to change the food I eat everyday to find out what is causing it and even change how I wash my clothing and sheets but I still get it. I delivered a baby last February by a Cesarian section. I just wonder if it could be from the injections I received. I need help before I go see a doctor.

Flaky Skin After Penicillin

by Andrew
(The Netherlands)

Hello, my name is Andrew Barker and a couple of years ago I had a sore throat. After a few nights I thought now was the time to see the doctor. Within minutes of seeing the doctor he came up with the master plan, penicillin.

After taking the penicillin, sure enough my sore throat was getting better but something unusual was happening. My skin started to go red all over my hands, arms, and face, basically anywhere there was skin. After a day or so my skin started to flake off. I think I must have lost at least two or three layers of skin. The doctor just said I was allergic to penicillin, nice of him I thought. The thing is it took roughly 5-6 weeks before I could even go outside again because it was so awfull to look at and people would just stare.

The skin has never really recovered and in winter time it is so thin that my hands and face look 30 years older. They bleed if I put my hands in my pockets too many times and small parts of my skin still flake in the cold. The dryness, pain and feeling you get in the cold isn't nice but at least I know now I am allergic to penicillin.

Small White Circles Rash and Hot Water

by Mike
(New Jersey)

Recently, my joint custody 12 year old daughter has experienced a chronic rash. After using hot water, small white circles that you can barely see will break out on her legs and she says it really itches. Medical allergy testing for the rash was negative for allergic reactions to a number of items. However, at the medical exam, hot water brought out the small white circles. The doctor did not prescribe any medicine. The mother has been giving her Benadryl and Cortisone anti-itch lotion. They seem to have accepted this condition and continue with this over-the-counter treatment. I have attempted to communicate that this should hopefully not be a life long condition of heat rash and she needs further testing for treatment to fully heal and resolve this condition. I have told them, maybe it's parasitic, bacterial or viral. I do not know.

Today, I have just began researching this condition for my daughter's health. I need to communicate with others who may have the same condition: hot water bringing out small white circles and find out if there is a treatment or cure. Any ongoing feedback is most highly appreciated. Thank you

Sincerly,
A most Concered Dad, Mike.

Itchy Raised Rash Caused by Ticks

by Susan
(Wantagh, NY USA)

I was in Virginia in the woods and went home that night and took a hot shower and washed my hair. I was on the look out for ticks but found none. I put my dirty clothes in the suitcase. Next day nothing still and looked for ticks and saw nothing for 2 days. I then came home and took a pair of clean pants from the suitcase and wore them. I took a shower and didn't see anything. The next morning I found 25 ticks on me and went to the doctor who put me on Doxycylean.

Five days later I broke out in a raised red rash that first looked almost like a red mosquito bite, but then looked almost like a little blister (but nothing really in it if broken). The rash is on my feet, ankles, legs, and back so far and is very itchy.

Chiggers are supposed to show up 3 - 6 hours after being bit. My brother was with me who never saw ticks and didn't have any rash until five days after being in woods. I can't figure out what it is and the doctor is not sure either. I live in NY and was visiting in Virgina.

Benadryl and Prednisone not Calming Itch

by Shani
(North NY)

It all happened in a little less than a day. I woke up on a Friday with itchy hands. Throughout the day, it started spreading up my arm. The itch was relentless. I went to bed, woke up the next day, and found it had spread to my legs. After changing my bed sheets and vacuuming the house, I went to the doctor. He gave me Benadryl and Prednisone to calm and reduce the rash but it didn't help. I found myself waking up in the middle of the night to let my nails do their job. When morning came, my legs and arms were burning and covered in even more blotchy, itchy beasts from hell. When I wouldn't scratch them, the blotches were reduced to red "circles" that would disappear only to reappear at the slightest touch of loose clothing. What is happening?

Antibiotic Skin Rash After Taking Zythromax

by Joel
(Puerto Rico)

In 2006 I had a throat infection and was prescribed Zythromax. After a week of taking the medicine I developed a skin rash that resembled acne all over the body. It took several weeks to clear up. Recently, I had another throat infection and was prescribed an antibiotic again. I thought it was a different one but it was a just a generic brand of Zythromax and now I have the same skin rash but worse. I haven't had a serious problem with acne since my teenage years and it is frustrating to have this problem now. If anybody has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated.
