Question: My pores got a little swollen

 Mariella - Fri Aug 20, 2004 9:19 pm

My pores have become in the last week a little red and swollen and even itch. I don't know if that is an allergy. It started yesterday in my right hand, the arm and the left hand the same; the left foot too. Today in the evening after i took a bath with hot water, it started in my bottom and a little bit in my stomach skin too.
I don't have fever, but i see my skin as if it were something that is for the hot and cold changes. maybe the air conditioning... i don't know exactly... maybe the sweat due to the summer?
I had this before (2 years ago, when i came) but it was not so intensely or maybe it was gone faster than i imagined?
Weeks ago i had the glands behind my neck, kind of swollen. Is this related??
I hope you really give me some counseling. Thanks. Mariella. :)

This is something you should see your physician about so he can evaluate if the rash is from exposure or inner allergy. He should also be consulted since you have lymph gland involvement.
