Skin :: Itchy Red Rash On My Butt?

I've been dealing with this rash on my butt for a few years now. It only shows up in a sort of red "ring" where the cheeks touch. It's a little itchy (my anus is not itchy or red) but mostly just painful. Sometimes it will go away for about a week but it's generally there in some level of severity.

At the advise of a doctor (I went in about a year ago), I tried using clotrimazole 1% for two weeks at a time. It doesn't seem to do a whole lot of good.

Any ideas? I'm really tired of the near constant rash.

Skin Rash Breakout - Moved Into New Apartment

I wish I knew what this was, but I honestly don't know. I recently moved into an apartment in southern Indiana from Northern Indiana. Within the first week I started getting small itchy bumps on my hips, and my roommate did too. I had my fiance come spend a weekend here and she developed the same rash. After 3 months of living here, it has now spread to my hands, both the tops and the palms, my inner thighs, my penis, my legs, especially behind my knees, my arms, my chest, and my back. My face is still okay (thank god, I might have to leave work if it spreads there), but the itching is unbearable. The bumps aren't too noticeable and my leg hair covers most of them on my lower half, but they are there none the less. The itching is especially bad around my ankles and on my feet. I've scratched both feet raw in places, I can't sleep, showering is unbearable, and I guess the rash actually hurts for my fiance. I went to my parents' house for the weekend a while back and they didn't get the rash, oddly enough. My roommate has been to her university's on campus clinic and they didn't know what it was, but they prescribed her Triamcinolone Acetonide, which hasn't really helped anything but temporary relief from itching. It's not contact dermatitis, no one else in our complex seems to have this problem so I doubt it's the water, we have a pet rabbit but it's never been outside or around other animals, and none of our furniture is not made of anything that fleas or bedbugs could live in (water bed, air mattress, leather couch.) It's actually killing me right now as I type this, and I really really need some help with this.

Skin :: Red Rash On Side Of Face I Sleep On?

I keep getting red, blotchy and sometimes dry skin on the side of my face that I sleep on (i.e. the one I rest on the pillow). It is usually there when I wake up in the morning and it's getting embarrassing because one side of my face is clear while the other one is red and blotchy. It extends to my neck occasionally too.

Ramipril :: Hives / Rash - Skin On Fire

I've just switched from 2.5 to 5mg Ramipril, when I suddenly had an allergic reaction.

Very swollen feet, ankles, wrists and hands.

Now the following day I'm covered in welts, hives and a rash.

My doctor has put me on a course of steroids and antihistamines, but my skin feels like it's still on fire!

Have been taking Andopoline for about 5 weeks, and was then prescribed Ramipril 2.5 two weeks ago, then up to 5mg last week.

Took the first 5mg on Thursday, and started getting the symptoms first thing Friday morning

Has anyone else suffered from this, and how long does it last?

Dermatology :: Peeling Skin And Rash On Ankles

I have been suffering from a rash on my ankles. The major symptoms I would say are a very itchy rash that waters when I scratch, and more prominently, 'dead' skin forms around my ankle and peels. The skin also seems to be getting tougher (maybe due to the scratching).

I have been to 2 doctors so far. The first felt it was contact dermatitis and gave me a corticosteroid (mometasone furoate) which cleared it up for some months but then it came back again. I've been to another doctor 2 weeks ago who gave me an antifungal cream (daktarin), but after 2 weeks of applying, I can't see any significant improvement to be honest. In fact, the infection spread to the left ankle only after I had started this treatment. I don't know if there's a connection. I would be seeing a specialist next if this treatment fails but I would like to have a good idea of what it might be.

Skin :: Itchy Rash/bumps Starting On Penis --spread To Inner Thighs

My penis started hurting at the bottom of the head, then it started itching like mad after a day. I itched it real hard. The next day my inner thighs started itching and it has spread to a couple itch bumps on my stomach, many on my waist area / lower abdomen. I tried to refrain from itching intensely.I've done a buttload of research, eczema is all I've found to fit so far. It doesn't seem to be mites/bed bugs/scabies/chiggers. Jock itch doesn't fit. Neither does yeast infection, or any other fungal/bacterial infection.My penis has become less itchy but more try. The skin on the head is flaking. I've been using ice cubes to temporarily relieve the itch but it's not too much help. My sleep is becoming very disturbed.

Glaucoma And Macular Edema?

2 years ago I had a piece of steel melted into my eye. I went to the emergency room and they called in an eye specialist. After a dew painstaking hour They got all of the steel removed from my eye. But the specialist tells me i need to see another doctor because it looks like I got glaucoma. So finally I got the nerve to go see the doctor. I don't like to go to doctors. Any how, she said i do have glaucoma after 3 visits to her. Also they had a specialist there at the last visit. They brought a different machine with them. They took a bunch of tests to confirm I have glaucoma and other problems. Macular thickening, leakage of fluid inside my eye, aneurysms, cotton walls. They have appointments scheduled all over the state with specialists now. I am 40 years old. They tested me for diabetes and high blood pressure. All negative. They are not sure why I am having such bad eye problems. Any thought? The eye doctor told me they will start a treatment for the glaucoma in a couple weeks after I see the next specialist.
