Conditions with symptom: 'scabs'
Hi I'm not quite sure whether my concern falls into the category of OCD but I can't think how else to describe my problem. What happens is I have a really itchy scalp and i tend to scratch at it subconsciously through-out the day;day after day to the point where scabs form and I will pick at them to stop them from healing. It feels as if this is getting to the point now where i feel it is becoming a part of my life and I am ashamed to go to a hairdressers etc because of the scabs Please any help others could provide me with would be greatly appreciated x
yup its a fairly common form of OCD - go to the doctors, therapies are very helpful in dealing with in and the sooner you seek help the better.
From excessive cocaine abuse not only is the center area the septal, wall is now comoletely gone. The multiple holes that once dotted rhe far depths of my nose begin to connect and eventually the holes cleared everthing out. Niw I have these large scabs that are almost to big to pull out with tweezers . Now when I look inside my nose theres no holes or tissue,just an open area with scabs that I cant pull out..im not sure if it is vone or just a scab.
For the past2 months I have had chronic itching all over my body and I mean all over, from my head to my toes and every-where in between. It's there all the time but worse at night. The rash that appears is like measles. I haven't changed any of my products and have tried all sorts of creams to calm it but nothing has worked. My scalp became full of scabs and the doctor did perscribe some lotion and antibiotics, the scabs cleared up but the itching is still there. I can't sleep (it's now 4am and am up writing this! I don't drink or smoke but I do have high blood pressure which I'm taking medication for, I am slowly being driven mad!
i think you should just stay carm , there is lots of diffrent types of rashes like usally if i get cold i itch really bad and get weird bumbs its totally weird im just saying coming from a 12 year old i would stay carm and then if it does not clear up in a year go and see the embarissing bodies clinic ! :)
On the head of the penis it just keeps scabbing. I have had this issue for aslong as I can remember, I think it started just after I got circumcised when I was a young boy. The head of the penis scabs up and i kind of peel it off, Sometimes when I pull a scab off it bleeds. There is never odd colors or anything like that just normal scabs. I have been to many doctors (approx 5) and they have all had no idea what it is exactly and have prescribed me creams to see if it works but nothing has stopped this problem. I have been tested for HIV, Herpes and so forth and all have come back negative. I have had this for years and it has always been a barrier and I am keen to find a fix for this problem. I hope you can help.
are you going to the same doctor or different ones since maybe another doctor may have an idea if you havent tried that already.
I have noticed for well over a week now that when I go to sleep and during the day a series of scabs will appear in my left nostril, this cause me a lot of discomfort to the point where my nostril feels like it is stuck together and I find my self having to put my finger into my nose and push it outwards to ease the discomfort, this is very embarrassing for me as I attend college and having to do that infront of people isn't very nice for myself or others, it al and it is also painful to touch and everytime I move my nose it hurts, can anybody help me with this? I have been given a cream from the doctor to put up my nostril to clear the scabs but it hasn't helped at all?
Are the scabs yellow. If so its impetigo. I had that a few years back. They can give you cream if you go to the dr
I pick my eyebrows, they then develop scabs which I pick until they bleed. would you say this is a form of Trichotillomania? I'm also embarrassed to say I still suck my thumb at 39yrs!So I tend to suck my thumb and pick my eyebrows at the same time! I do suffer with depression and I am being treated for this, I am feeling a lot better with the medication I am on. Does anyone else pick their eyebrows? I cover the scabs with make up, can be quite embarrassing especially as I am a health care proffessional and despite make up it can still be quite obvious! just wish I could stop doing it!
I have about 4 - 5 'spots' on the end of my foreskin, they look like scabs/walts. They are very dry, but not sore.
How do you get rid of facial scabs from spots naturally without using any products
I get spots on my feet with clear puss in them which then dry out and turn into scabs!what is this?
'spots on my feet with clear puss in them which then dry out and turn into scabs!' WELL THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I GET AND I DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT IT IS!!! KEEPING THE AREA MOISTURISED SEEMS TO KEEP IT UNDER CONTROL, BUT IT STILL WON'T GO AWAY!!! AT LEAST I'M GLAD I'M NOT THE ONLY ONEWITH IT THOUGH!!! *AND ANYONE WHO THINKS THEY MIGHT KNOW WHAT IT IS OR HOW TO TREAT IT PLEASE SAY, MUCH APPRECIATED!!!*
Hi. I get the same thing. I tried athletes foot sprays, creams and powders. They clear mine up every time. Try not to scratch them. It will make them worse.
Small round black scabs around the opening on end of penis. What is this?
