    Eczema

    Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes the skin to become reddened, dry and cracked. Read more →

    Mine's a little diff, not diagnosed but just checking. (I've pretty bad anxiety issues by the way). My habit since around 5 is that I have to pick the skin on my lips. I cannot stand them dry or rough. Even to the point of bleeding, I have to peel the skin till my lips feel smooth. Usually, they'll end up bleeding and varying red shades. When I pick them, I cannot do or concentrate on anything else, not even reading or walking. It's a vicious cycle, because when I pick them, they heal into rough skin then i have the urge to pick and pick. I tend to do this more when stressed and sort of like the pain when the skin comes off. Is this considered ocd and what can be done? Thanks

    I had my menopause at 39, had 10 years of HRT which did nothing and from 39 to 58 sweated uncontrollably until I could stand it no longer. Last August, my GP again prescribed HRT and I have not stopped bleeding very heavily since. In March I had a hysteroscope and all was normal although I was and am still bleeding very heavily. I have no break at all from bleeding. I am exhausted and really can't put up with this situation any longer. The first HRT stopped the sweats but I changed to another to stop the bleeding. The bleeding continues and the sweats have come back. Please help!

    I had the implant put in last year (I'm eighteen and had it to sort out my generally heavy period) after a couple of months I noticed a significant differenence in my periods. They became more regular as in I would have one every other week, and they became heavier than they had been before. I went back to my doctor and had the implant removed after just one year, they were hesitant because they insisted that the implants cost the government a lot of money. Since then my periods have gone back to the way they were before, on time however they remain heavy. I believe it's just the implant.

    I have been put on the implant last Christmas and have been fine until 2/3 months ago, but I have been experiencing bleeding numerous times a day and it's really heavy. Sometimes I get some pain before bleeding in the bottom of my stomach but it's unexpected and I don't know what wrong with me. I'm only 19 and suffered with DFSP skin cancer last year so I feel like I'm riddled with cancer constantly, I'm getting so stressed out and it's ruining my life.

    This is actually really normal, I got the implant in August and I was fine until about a months go when I got constant bleeding 24/7. I'm only 17 so obviously I panicked and googled it and found that this was really common, go to your doctor/GP and they'll put you on the pill, it worked for me!

    Hi, I had my first mirena coil fitted on 28/11/12 and ever since I have been bleeding, only small amounts, but constant. in january the bleeding started to get heavier so i went back to the sexual health clinic for swabs and it turned out that i had thrush and bacterial vaginosis so i completed the medications for these. this stopped my bleeding for about 3 days. then i started bleeding again very lightly. do you think it will stop by the 6th month mark on its own? or will i have to go back to have it removed?

    I had the coil fitted about a month ago and I havnt stopped bleeding since. It's not heavy bleeding and it doesn't hurt but its just really annoying, iv been on 6 different birth control pills and they didn't stop my bleeding, I went on the injection for a year and my periods completely stopped but I got very bad back acne and gained some weight so iv finally opted for the copper coil, but I havnt stopped bleeding since a couple of days after I had it fitted! Also I'm already anaemic some bleeding continuously doesn't help the situation Please help!

    Hi. I got my lip pierced three days ago. I already have one on the other side that i have had for three years and it healed fine. This time I believe a blood vessel was hit and I've been having problems with it bleeding. Mostly at night when I'm sleeping. I read a lot of things online about excessive bleeding and I'm not to worried. The question i have is now there's a greyish string of something, dead skin i'm assuming, that came from the hole. I put pressure on it while it was bleeding so i think that's why it came out. I just want to know if it's a sign of infection or just dead skin? Also should i cute it off? Thank you. Also it has a ring not a stud in it. And I brush my teeth twice a day and use sea salt rinse everytime I eat or smoke.

    I have had irregular periods, bleeding in between periods, not knowing if I am going to bleed from day to day I can't tell you how many pairs of underwear have been ruined! I have tried to see if there are any patterns to it and I think it happens when I'm feeling stressed or anxious but my doctor said it's usually the opposite??? I have had a colposcopy and soooooo many smear tests I honsetly don't know where to turn next. I do worry that it might be hiding something more serious especially since I seem to be getting other symptoms in that region now. If anyone has any other suggestions please help. By the way, good luck with your baby plans, you are not greedy!

    I have this problem too! I was offered cauterisation, but am not keen as the consultant said everything looks healthy! I'd love to know what causes this as it's very inconvenient and putting me off sex (much to my husbands frustration!).

    I have been bleeding everyday for 10 months ! Im on a contraceptive injection but have been told that the bleeding is different for that and wouldn't last so long. Im bleeding fresh blood. I have now been put on a contraceptive pill as well this stopped the bleeding for two weeks but has now started again. I've been checked out for all stds etc. I'm so fed up with it all ! x x

    hi i was on the jab and had no periods but i did have problems with weight, mood and skin. i was also put onto pill which gave me very irregular cycles. i would suggest you try another form of cotraception.

    I had a similar situation as yours. Normally am 26 days cycle and 2-3days into bleeding. Suddenly everything changed, started having heavy bleeding and very painful. I had to use tampoon and pad at the same time and within an hour i have to change. I went to my GP and referred to a gynaecologist and detected i've got fibroids and have been offered to have the Mirina implant which has helped a lot with the bleeding and the pain. I was also on Tranexamic acid which helps with the bleeding. And because i was bleeding so much i was birder line anaemic and was put on iron tablets. Please as your GP to refer you to a gynae and get it sorted. All the best.

    i have psoriasis on the tips of my fingers it is very sore and often cracks and starts bleeding. this means i have to put plasters on them to stop them bleeding. this too causes me problems as it can pull off some of the skin as well when takuing off the plasters. is there any chnce of advising me of any effective treatments for this as i have tried various steroid creams and moisturisers but they have not worked.

    are you bleeding actually *during* sex? or afterwards? either way you need to go and get checked out. chlamydia will cause bleeding and pain after sex. if you're bleeding during sex then it sounds like he's tearing you somewhere which isnt good - ask the doctor to give you an internal exam to check everything is okay.

    first of all calm down. what do you mean 'bleeding'? do you mean bleeding in between periods? that the bleeding *is* your period? are you losing a lot of blood? what else is going on?

    You should definately see your GP. You may need to see a gynaecologist for further investigation. Any abnormal bleeding should be checked out. Lots of things to consider. Are you on the pill? It can cause breakthrough bleeding. Are you up to date with your smear tests? Polyps can cause bleeding. Please go to your doctor and try not to worry.

    Im 25 years old. im not sure whether i gto piles or not.I even consulted teh doctors...one said i have piles and other said i dont have its just a skin which had come out.But sometime back i was bleeding when i pass stoles and iwas having soem pain but right now im neither bleeding nor getting teh pain. please let me know am i suffering from piles?

    If you look in the betterware magazine. It has a white handle and has a blade at the end to cut it off but not too deep. Works a treat and very cheap. Thanks

    I have been on the Depo Injection for 1year now. In the beginning I had no bleeding at all however, over the past 9 months I have had irregular bleeding and an unusual brown discharge. I have also been bleeding after sex however usually only after climax. Even if it is not penetrative sex. Sex can also be painful. I have had an STI check which is all clear. Although I have been to my GP many times, I do not seem to be getting anywhere! Help! Thanksx

    I am unsure of whether I have Haemorrhoids but I have what feel like small skin tags around my anus. Also, after I pass a stool I bleed heavily, the blood doesn't appear to be coming from my anus but just behind it, and it tends to start bleeding after I wipe. I don't think the bleeding is caused by excessive or rough wiping as there is far to much blood. I've have only experienced these symptoms over the last 2 days but I am worried and too embarrassed to see my GP, please help.

    She may have a condition called endometriosis. I have it, and my periods are very long and irregular, and EXTREMELY painful. I'm on the pill and have an Implanon implant but they're not working. It can only be diagnosed through surgery, unfortunately, but she may want to mention the possibility to her doctor. Try not to worry too much!
