Adventures in the skin trade

I have a rash I have been dealing with unsuccessfully for the last four months, and need deciding how to proceed. General interest (well, if you're interested in rashes and bug bites and other matters dermatological), but people who know the Baltimore medical scene are particularly invited to read on. Red, blotchy snowflakes inside. [more inside]

Calling all backpackers: help me prevent/cure hip belt rash

When I cinch down my backpack's hip belt enough so that the weight actually rests on my hips, it tends to cause some soreness and, more annoyingly, a bit of a rash after a day of hiking. The pack is not that heavy (around 20 lbs/9kg with food and water - I'm not planning to do backpacking with a tent, just hut-to-hut hiking) and fits comfortably otherwise. [more inside]

What's up with my skin?

I've had a mysterious rash for the past 8 months, starting 2 weeks after my first child was born. Two different dermatologists say probably eczema, and I probably just have to live with it. Should I give up and live with it, or try to do something else? [more inside]

It's the body's biggest organ, you know.

Please help me figure out what's going on with my skin. I have either a rash or acne or something on my face and I don't know why or what to do!

What is up with my skin?

I thought I had mild "papulopustular rosacea." Putting Polysporin on the red bumps helped a lot. Then I took acyclovir for a cold sore and the bumps cleared up completely! None of the online resources on rosacea have indicated acyclovir as a treatment. So what did I have? [more inside]

Bash My Rash

YANAD or maybe your are. I have a mysterious rash / itchy thing going on. Add in that my wife is due with our second child in five days. Two nights ago I woke up several times during the night scratching my pubic area. That morning I put some hydrocortizone on it and thought that was that. Since then, I have been itching all over in random spots. [more inside]

What bit me?

The other day, I developed 3 itchy red marks (they look like bug bites) on my elbow. They're in a triangle formation, and everything I look up online indicates that they could be bed bugs. However, I got them while I was sitting at my desk at work, 6 hours after I'd left my house, and wearing a long-sleeved shirt. Is there anything else that would cause marks like these? [more inside]
