Has anyone had a severe yeast infection before?


Like, with a bad rash and lesions/sores? Specifically called "cutaneous candidiasis"?
I've already had one, and it was HORRIBLE. It lasted for about 2 weeks. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced it and how bad theirs was
----------

I've had odd thigs happen to my vagina all the time.
Have you shaved recently down there? Sometimes that can be a cause of things.
I've been checked constantly for infections and I've had:
Rashes
Lesions/Sores
Aches
Irritation
Bumps
Even Pimples

It depends on how long you have yours though. If it's been like...three weeks and it hasn't gone away, that is a bad sign. My advice is to wait for a few more weeks and see if it goes away. If it worsesn then obviously see a doctor.

48hrs after a CT scan with contrast medium I have developed a body rash. How long can I expect this to last.?


The CT scan was looking for lymphomas as a couple of skin lesions removed from my arm recently may be cutaneous lymphomas or nothing more than pseudolymphomas.
The rash developed four days ago and is still very prominent; although it is not so itchy now.
Many thanks

You need to go to the doctor. Your rash has been there too long. You probably need Benadryl and a shot of steroids for the inflammation. Make sure you inform your doctor of your allergy to the contrast. The next reaction could be very serious.  (+ info)

what is sucrose cutaneous medicine?


I think you mean subcutaneous medication. This is a medication given by a shot into the area just beneath the skin. Insulin, enoxaparin, filgrastim are just a few of the drugs given by this route.  (+ info)

how is it that someone can contract cutaneous anthrax without getting pulmonary at the same time? ?


asuming that the person didnt cut themselves and pour sheep blood containing anthrax spores on the cut, how could a person contract cutaneous anthrax without contracting pulmonary at the same time? also if you could tell me if you know the rate at which an animal gives off spores through the air (which we could inhale). and the rate at which they travel. because if these two numbers were small, then you would need prolonged exposure to contract pulmonary anthrax. but since the average (a very rough average) of lethal pulmonary anthrax is 10,000-20,000 spores inhaled.

well they could contract the anthrax at a time they weren.t dealing w/sheep.........a sheep farm that has sheep shedding off a bunch of anthrax is going to have plenty of anthrax in the soil........they could get into the skin thru microtears in it........or they can sit around for a while waiting for an opportunity and a weak spot in the skin.........  (+ info)

Question about Cutaneous larva migrans (hookworm)?


If you have ever had this or known someone who had it did the medication for it work? How long did it take for it to go away? And did any of the complications from it that doctors say are rare, happen? Like the larvae moving into the intestine an/or lungs cuasing diarrhea, nausea, coughing, pheumonia, anemia?
----------

We went to Jamaica a few years ago. A few months after returning my 9 year old daugher noticed little red lines on the bottom of her feet. Her pediatrician diagnosed her with cutaneous larva migrans. He froze both ends of the lines on every line there was. The lines went away after that. I assume their gone. The only reason I'm searching on this topic now is because I was watching a documentary last night on parasites and how they can travel through your blood stream and attach to your organs, etc. I'm wondering now if she should've taken something to make sure none of them traveled? I'm very concerned. Anyhow I hope this helps you in some way.  (+ info)

God this sounds so scary.

An extract from the above reads this:

Cutaneous anthrax, like the more deadly inhalational anthrax, is treated with antibiotics. The CDC recommends first-line treatment with ciprofloxacin or doxycycline. Other recommended antibiotics are erythromycin and penicillin. At this point the best course of action is to treat with ciprofloxacin and obtain bacterial cultures to test for specific antibiotic sensitivities. These results, usually available after 72 hours, can direct further antibiotic therapy. Cases of naturally occurring cutaneous anthrax are treated with a 10-14 day course of antibiotics. However, a full 60-day course of antibiotics is recommended.

My advice would be to keep visiting skin doctors until you get appropriate treatment.  (+ info)
