Conditions with symptom: 'lesions'
do the lesions always itch with this condition? I have dry lesions on my lower legs that are getting more with age, and have not faded in 2 years, but they don't itch. My GP has no idea what they are - could it be this?
The lesions can itch when overly dry or hot but it's not usual. If your GP doesn't know what they are then get a referral to a dermatoligist and don't wait until they get worse. good luck
i have had a M,R,I done and it shows i have several tiny white matter lesions within both cerebral hemispheres the largest is in the deep white matter of the right frontal lobe and measures 7mm most are located in the deep white matter but there are periventricular lesions adjacent to both lateral ventricular trigones and there are a few subcortical lesions. there is sparing of the temporal lobes. no brainstem or cerebellar lesion. there is a tiny lesion in the left anterior corpus callosum. no mass effect or restricted diffusion. no cerebellopontine angle mass. the fifth,seventh and eighth cranial nerves appear normal with no mass or significant vascular compression. so have i had a strok
I also suffer from HS, but my condition is getting worse. I have been on antibiotics on numerous occasions and I am due to get the lesions surgically removed from under my arms. The difference with mine is that when they do burst, the skin around that area is soft and weak due to the strain of the build up of puss underneath. So, when the lesions do finally burst, a chuck of flesh hangs out from the opening. Now I have two small chunks of flesh hanging out from under each arm and I am really concerned. It will greatly increase my risk of acquiring further infection and also causes hygiene issues. Is there anything you would recommend? I have tried silver from the GP to help close the wound but nothing to date has worked effectively.
Australian Tea Tree oil wash. QVC sell this in litre bottles - quite expensive but can be diluted. This not only is an antiseptic wash - but stops the nasty niffs too.
thas exactly like mine its like something eating your flesh away its quite upsetting,i do bath using tea tree oil to try and keep it clean as mine is constantly drainning with puss,my gp has tried aquacel with me its a seeweed lint stuff and apparently its supposed to heal the holes that this skin complaint is leavingxxi have been suffering with this since the age of 14 im now 43 and a specialist did say smoking dosent help itxx
I have also lesions under my eyes, can you tell me whats the best treatment for it, please I really need help.
My stretch marks on my inner thighs are starting to become red, raised and even turn into lesions, with the skin opening and becoming unbearable to touch. I'm only 20, a size 12 with no big weight gain or loss...is there anything I can do to stop this from happening?
On the program it does not mention how to stop the itching of DSAP. Have suffered constant intense itching without relief since lesions first appeared on legs only following heart bypass vein removal. diagnosed by dr but only prescribed e45 cream which is no help.
I've had DSAP for a few years now, mainly on my arms but also to some extent on my lower legs. My arms can itch quite intensely, particularly after sun exposure. My friend gave me some Doublebase cream to try, and this is the best treatment that I have found up to now. I lather it on morning and night, and during the day if necessary, and it certainly does calm the itching. Not sure if it is available on prescription only??
I have been diagnosed with DSAP, only this morning. I had biopsies over a year ago that came back as Bowens desease and Aktinic Keratosis, there were many lesions and I was treated with cryotherapy and Efudex cream every couple of months but it didnt really improve, My dermatologist has now prescribed Neotigason capsules wich are a retinoid have I got all three problems I am a bit confused
I too have been advised I have DSAP, the itching is driving me mad, has anyone got any useful tried and tested advice to help ?
I have had psoriasis since being a child and now I'm 20 its at its worst. I have large scaley lesions everywhere, from my scalp to my face to my legs. Ive tried numerous creams from tars to steriod creams but nothing seems to work! I have been referrred to see a dermatologist but the appointment is not for another 10 weeks and I am in so much pain as its continuously itchy, sore and bleeds quite a bit. Is there anything that anyone knows that I can use to calm it down until I see the dermatologist as its really getting me down. Many Thanks
I have the same problem and it is also driving me mad. I am taking 3 a day of neem and sarsaparilla, 2 of omega 3 and 3 of quercitin all of which I got from a health food shop. They are expensive but I think have helped a bit with the itching. I am hoping to have some uvb treatment at the hospital which worked for a bit the last time i tried that treatment, 15 years ago. I dont think the steroid or non steroid creams tha tyou get from the doctor make any difference at all apart from making you more depressed by looking at yourself whilst you are putting the cream on. I dont really know what else to suggest, I haev tried it all! I am seeing a homeopath as a last resort at the moment as he helped hugely with my asthma. Anything is worth a try. Good luck with it.
how can i exercise when i cant feel my body form the neck down i find it hard to walk never mind run i have had an M,R,I on th 14 march 2012 and in bref it shows multiple small white matter lesions. appearances are nonspecific but the differential diagnosis would include demyelinating disease and smal vessel ischaemia. all i know is i am 5;10 and 16 stone and have a bmi of 32.2 and i need to find a way to lose some of it i have tryed eatting less and eatting as good as i can but still i am stuck at 16 stone
I am so embarrassed by the lesions on my legs. Going to a dermatologist was not fruitful. Why is no research being done on this? I started getting the skin circles on my lower legs in my lates twenties, which twenty years later are now numerous and a brown/purple colour, with the tell tale plug in the middle. I am now seeing pale circles on my cheeks. I am worried that these will become more pronounced in colour. Can anyone recommend a concealer for legs and face? I dread the summer season where everybody has legs on show....
I also have a classic case of DSAP which I inherited from my father. I diagnosed myself 25 years ago at the age of 37 when no GP or dermatologist could - I researched my symptoms on the internet. I try to stay out of the sun and keep covered - not fun in summer. I have found that Derma Blend ( purchased at the makeup counter at The Boston Store) conceals very well particularly for the less noticable lesions on my lower arms. I first apply a non greasy sun screen and then the Derma Blend which does come in different shades. You have to experiment to find the shade that works best for you and I often mix shades. I cover the area with a light dusting of baby powder which helps seal the Derma Blend. I wait 5 minutes then brush off the powder with a makeup brush. It works pretty well and lasts for a few days as the Derma Blend is water proof. My DSAP has gotten worse over the years no matter how I protect myself from the sun. It has covered most of my lower legs but thankfully only a small portion of my arms. I do have a couple of spots on my upper forehead but hopefully they are due to age not DSAP. Good luck to everyone coping with this unusual condtion.
