Popping Up Sores
« on: August 14, 2010, 12:26:20 PM »
Hi all,   

Lately, I've been getting these weird little sores around my neck and face.  Now these normally don't bother me much, but I just had an outbreak of several of them, and I'm starting to wonder what the heck is up now?  They look like a bug bite (they're not) then some will blister up, open and stay that why for a matter of a few hours to several days, then heal without a noticeable scar thankfully.

Anyway, they started about the ear lobe to half way around my neck as they descended in a sort of a line to my thyroid area where there were several up to my throat area (not bug bites, nor am I allergic to detergent/softener or lotion that I know of). 

I wonder if this could be related to a stomach problem maybe?  Still taking a PPI, and the stomach is still not quite right (on Aciphex twice a day now).

Thanks all for reading!

Take care -

Patze,

Are these just on one-half of your face/neck area?  You don't mention any pain associated with them, but ever had shingles?

Sheltiemum, I was just going to suggest the same thing?

Would that make sense, Patze?

Could be pupura. Are they little red or purple dots starting out?
I miss the good old days. Things were more like they used to be back then.

Hi all,

Nope, never had chicken pox nor shingles either (exposed, but never developed).  And you're right Sheltiemom, they are on the same side of my neck/lower jaw area this time, odd indeed. 

I do get little red pimple like things on my arms mainly, and they look like a pimple, but are very hard like they're completed dried out (they also hang around for two to three weeks as well).

Oh well, hopefully they'll go the way of the dinosaurs soon! :)

Take care -

Hey Patze-

Could it be related to the medication you are taking (or increase of it)?

Hope it goes the way of the dinosaurs soon too...if not...a trip to the doc may be in order so it doesn't get any worse!
