On a waiting list to get the next test done (at the hospital) about two months ago I was told I have leison on cervix. Still on public waiting list to find out what stage. No diabetes I have no health issues in that sense
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago
Thank you for your message.
Why should there be a waiting period for further diagnosis and management when on PAP smear it shows a cervical cancer cells?
Have you taken a course of oral anti fungals for the present skin lesions you have?
This looks very much like Tinea corporis infection ( dermatophyte Infection) .
This could be so extensive in its spread due to lowered immunity caused by the cervical cancer

Could it be staph infection on the face? I am on a public waiting list - have been waiting a while now and still haven't got an appointment, how would I know if the cancer has progressed in stages if I am on a waiting list, how quickly does it usually grow??
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago
Thank you for your query.
Can you send me a photo of the face area?
I have a photo only of the forearms.
The cervical cancer can grow in a few months and can cause lowered immunity which can result in extensive tinea ( fungal infection )

Here are two photos of my face
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago
Thank you very much for your photo sent.
Yes , the infection or a stye of the lower eyelid swelling is associated with Staphylococcal infection and does need an oral antibiotic course for 5 days with topical application of fusidic acid ointment twice a day for 2 weeks to heal.
The skin lesion on the forearms and the buttock does indicate a extensive fungal infection. ( tinea corporis ) and would need an oral anti fungal like terbinafine taken for around 3 weeks with local application of topical miconazole applied twice a day for 3 weeks.
The fact you are getting widespread fungal infection and the staphylococcal infection of such a moderate grade nature on the face , I would suggest that you should try and get an earlier appointment as it is a sign that your immune system is weakened. This can be due to the cervical cancer and you should not wait for a longer time to get the appointment. If possible you can visit the ER or casualty to get early care telling them you have a positive PAP smear showing cervical cancer , skin infections as above. and blood in phlegm.
Would it be possible for you to go to the ER as I have mentioned to get an earlier appointment? I recommend this would be essential.
