    Hair loss.

    For the past couple months I noticed that I was shedding my hair a lot more than normal. When I take a shower and wash my hair my hands are covered in a thin layer of hair. This is for both when I use shampoo and conditioner. I am also shedding during the day a lot more than I usually have in the past. I just need to know if this is something to worry about?? I haven't been able to see a doctor recently (financial reasons) but I'm afraid I might have lupus (I have at least 6 symptoms plus....
  • Non itch red rashes

    I have these non itch red rashes on my legs and arms. First started out on my arms then spread to my legs. Some are big some are small. I have no idea where they came from. They don't seem to be contagious because my husband does not have them. Some are all red and some are just a red ring like circle. I searched up ringworms but I don't believe thats it. How can I post pictures on here??

    Unresolved Hives? Folliculitis?

    Mysterious "hives"... anyone else? My back is scarred from years of red, itchy, raised bumps. They cycle... in the middle of an active phase right now. Probably 6 biopsies have been done over the past few years, 3 dermatologists. They can't conclusively dx ANYTHING! Steroid creams without success. 2 rounds of doxycycline but here they remain. I was dx'd with discoid lupus from a lesion behind my ear. But this is nothing like that. Wish I could post a pic from my phone but it doesn't....

    Unknown blotches..help!

    Help! For years I have had red blotches appearing on my legs, chest, and neck whenever I took a hot shower, exercised, when I became emotional, outside in hot weather, etc. These blotches are flat along the skin, bright red, and hot to the touch! They don't itch and last for about 30 minutes afterwards. I have looked everywhere for an answer but can't find one. Anyone else have this problem or know what it might be??!

    Remove knife cuts marks on arm

    Hi, I have 2 prominent knife cut marks on my arm, with a few hard to see cuts. I would like to know if how to remove the main mark which is very dark brown in color. The cut happened in September 2016 and I have been using Mederma (after reading WebMD) since a week now. Is there any way to get rid of the mark quicker along with Mederma scar removal. The picture of the cut mark is provided in this following link: https://s28.postimg.org/atpvfykh9/photo.jpg Thanks.
  • Eczema and keratosis pilaris

    I've struggled with skin problems since around the age of 12. I'm 36 now and I am now just starting to get on top of these 2 skin conditions I have. Keratosis pilaris is a condition caused by vitamin deficiencies. Mainly oils that are good for the skin like vitamin A and E. I take beta carotene and vitamin E regularly now. What also helps is a lotion called Urea Care 10%. I no longer get eczema on my elbows and knees and is confined to the webbing of my fingers. The bumps on the back of my....

    Red flaky dry skin

    For a few years now it had red flaky dry skin on each side of my cheeks near my nose. It seemed to have started when I got to North/ South Carolina. No matter what lotion I use it never gets better. It has its good day and bad days. If I pick at it it gets worse. With a wedding coming up I need my face to 100%. My profile picture doesn't really show how bad but shows more of the location

    My Hand Got Burned And Now My Skin Is Being Peeled Off

    Hello WebMD, Seven days ago my right hand got burned from boiling water. Since then, I had two small blisters that I bursted unintentionally and treated them with band-aids. However today, a big part of my skin was peeled off, exposing the underlying layers. I have taken a photo to better demonstrate the situation. How bad does it look and what should I do to treat it? Is it a normal part of the healing process? Photo: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_3yc95LITHAcXVTcjdNVkxnNWM/view Thank you!

    Shingles

    I am 52 y/o. I am having the shingles for the fifth time in 7 years. Who ever said you can't get them more than once well guess what you can. My insurance won't cover the cost of the shot. I don't have 275.00 to pay for it.
