lumpy skin?

the skin on my upper arms is kind of lumpy lately and i dont know why or how to get rid of it!! help!

It may be a common skin condition called keratosis pilaris. If the bumps do not look like acne, characterized by puss and irritation, this is most likely what you have. The following link may assist you in deciding if your condition is indeed karatosis pilaris. Either way, it may be a good idea to have your health care provider evaluate it and suggest a treatment.  (+ info)

Lumpy skin?

Tiny little lumps on body? Is it diet? Also whenever I bend down when I stand up I get like these red lines(two thin red lines where my skin gets creased when I bend down one just above my belly button and one where my belly button is lol) and they do disappear after a while and I know it wouldn't bother most people but I wanna be a model but I probably can't if I don't know how to get rid of these weird lines? And what about the lumpy skin? I think it's either poor circulation or diet? I dunno please help? Thankyu.

i have the same problem with skin, thanks karen L, i finally know whats wrong weith my skin now, pity no much can be done to abolish the symptoms though.

the way i combat the lumpy skin, is by exfoliating with an exfoliation glove with body scrub on it, and the only moisturiser that works on the affected part of my body ( arms, upper and lower legs) is actually johnsons baby oil gel, normal oil is too runny and cream moisturisers do not hydrate my skin at all.  (+ info)

What skin disease similar to vitiligo causes lightening of skin, but not total loss of pigment?

I have lighter color dots of skin on my body, but they are not white. Someone told me there is a less severe form of vitiligo or a skin disease the lightens the skin, but doesn't totally loose all its color or pigmentation, only lighter skin. What is this disease called? I would like to know more about the disease. Thank you.

go see your doctor it mite be mild vitiligo one of my relatives has mild vitiligo and he has little blotches on his arms and legs where the skin has lightened and the back of his palms and feet are lightened as well.  (+ info)

What disease is this that affecs the skin so badly?

This disease affects the skin of the patient, he/she has tiny, skin-coloured bumps portruding from the skin all over the body, including the face. But it doesn't seem to be contagious as I see people who had this disease around quite often, so they must have been cured of the disease?
I don't know if it's psoriasis, the bumps are slightly larger than a huge pimple. And they are skin coloured, not red or anything.

is a noncontagious, lifelong skin disease. According to the National Institutes of Health, as many as 7.5 million Americans have psoriasis.
About 10 percent to 30 percent of people with psoriasis also develop psoriaticarthritis, which causes pain, stiffness and swelling in and around the joints.  (+ info)

How common is it to get the skin disease vitiligo?

I have a very distant cousin who has it, and I'm wondering if it's genetic. Also, is this a rare disease, or is it actually very common and just not talked about? I'm African American and proud of my color, so naturally, I don't want to lose it. Not to mention the cost of treatments, and the possible need to bleach my skin to even everything out. I know it's silly, but I'm nervous about it. Does anyone have any information?

1% of the world's population gets this disease so I think it is rarer than other auto immune diseases.but here is a link that may help you understand.

I don't believe that there is a 100% effective treatment for Keloids. Check with your dermatologist to see what treatments are available.  (+ info)

How do I keep a skin disease from spreading?

I was told it was a disease you can get from walking around bare foot alot. I'm a big hippie about that but all they ever do is burn it with acid and it should stop growing. Well, it hasn't stopped and I clean it and cut the extra skin off. I'm not growing another foot or anything but how can I stop it if they have tried burning it three times already?

Are you talking about a wart? I got a wart in college (btw, I didn't normally go barefoot back then, I probably picked it up in the showers but I wore boots everywhere else -haven't had a wart or anything else in the ten years I've been completely barefoot). The dr tried freezing it twice, I used wart-off and tea tree oil and many things but what finally helped was urine. Put a drop on every time you're at home and go to the restroom (use a q-tip), let it dry, and keep doing this for a while after it appears to be gone (so you know for sure it's gone completely, not just shrank to a size too small to see, even a few cells will grow back). Seems gross but it was the only thing that finally worked.
If you're talking about another skin problem, yes I will need to know what it is!  (+ info)

Is there a skin disease where the skin heals really quickly, but can easily cause cancer?

I was talking to someone and they said they had a disease where the skin heals extremely quickly, but leaves bad scarring which supposedly can also lead to cancer.

Is there anything like this?

Never heard of such a thing. The skin healing fast means the immune system is functioning well then. I doubt that this could or would happen then. I don't hear ever of scarring any causing cancer.  (+ info)

What is the name of the disease when skin darkens and burns after Bone Marrow Transplant?

My sister went under a bone marrow transplant but her skin burned 3 months later. Her normal skin tone is tan/white but now her skin is burned and is constantly burning and its very dark. I cant seem to find the name of this disease or how long it will take to heal. The doctors say she is cancer free and her blood in fine except the issue with her skin being burned and dry. Any help to find a website about this would be highly appreciated. THANKS

I wonder if she has graft v host disease. Did her transplant use a donor? I have had problems with chornic gvhd that effect my skin, but its not burnt. I get a rash that looks similar to eczema. Its red, itchy, and dry in splotches.  (+ info)
