Jul 18, 2020 Hive-type rash (urticaria): Sudden appearance of raised bumps on the skin which come and go quite quickly over hours and are usually very itchy. It can involve any part of the body, and often. Flat red patches, raised plaques with a scaly surface, or lumps accompanied by severe itching in some cases can signal lymphoma of the skin, says Debra Jaliman, MD, dermatologist and author of.
Red Blotchy Skin is a condition in which small red patches appear all over the skin. These patches can either be painful or painless. Blotches can occur on any part of the body including arms, legs, neck, chest, hand, nose, around ankles, back of the arms etc. Red blotchy skin can be itchy at times and might turn into a rash. Color that spreads from the border of a spot into surrounding skin Itching, pain, or tenderness in an area that doesn't go away or goes away then comes back Changes in the surface of a mole: oozing, scaliness, bleeding, or the appearance of a lump or bump. The answer to the question if skin cancer can come and go is rather tricky. Skin cancer coming and going would refer to malignant cells being there one day and then withering away shortly.
Red Patch On Face That Comes And Goes Forth
Red Patch On Face That Comes And Goes Together
I am 27 years old, with fair skin, and currently 35 weeks pregnant. Over the last 2-3 weeks I have developed a strange rash/spot of sorts on my face. It began as a small, reddish patch (looked kind of like a small abrasion) on my left cheek, about 3/4 inch below the outside corner of my left eye. It slowly grew over about 5-7 days. It was red, became slightly raised, and was almost perfectly round. It may have had a very faint reddish border, or it may have just been the raised edges that made it appear so. Anyway, it finally reached about the size of a dime. The inside was *very* slightly dry/flaky, and it would only occasionally itch a *very* little bit (almost so as not to be noticed). I tried applying Neosporin from the time I first noticed it -- it didn't seem to have much of an effect. However, after growing to dime-sized, it slowly cleared up. After 3 or 4 days, it was gone.
Then, about 3 or 4 days after it had disappeared, the whole process began again. Exact same spot; it slowly grew (perhaps it was a little bit larger the second time and a little less perfectly round); but overall the same development. I went to my primary care physician, who took a small scraping from it and looked at it under a microscope. He said he couldn't clearly see a fungus, but also couldn't identify it as anything else. He recommended trying Miconazole 2% (Monistat) on it for two weeks. Well, I began applying it, and once again -- about 7-8 days after it reappeared -- it cleared up over 3-4 days. I have, however, continued to use the Miconazole. Nonetheless, the spot is now reappearing, in the same spot...
I am hoping to get referred to a dermatologist, but in the meantime, wonder if you have any suggestions as to what this might be? What kind of rash can come and go, in the exact same spot, like this? Could it be a strange side-effect of the pregnancy? Is it likely to spread or keep getting bigger?
Please help! -- this rash (or whatever it is) in addition to all the normal problems of pregnancy is really stressing me out. I assume it's not eczema/psoriasis because it doesn't really itch; it doesn't seem to be a fungus or bacterial because it hasn't responded to either an anti-fungal cream or Neosporin. I'm worried if it's something that could have an effect on the baby. I've also read that some immuno-deficiency disorders (like lupus, etc.) can cause rashes on the face. Could this be one of those??
