Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** ***** I have a rash kind substance on my fingers and toe since birth. It disappears a little some times and re appears agiain. I was told my parent did everything to solve the problem. But I later tried myself by visiting a dermatologist who said it's " Cairo pofolix" I might not have gotten the spelling right though. He injected the spots and the rash left. But later appeared. I was also told my mum has it on her ankle too

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

It itches me once in awhile especially when it's coming out

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

The itching isn't serious per se. It's just the embarrassing site. I have applied several cream that sometimes make it vanish and surfaces after a while. Even the dermatologist injected the spots, it healed like after effect of fire burn. It was whitish . But came out again after a long while. My late mum has same thing

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My mum has it too. My fear is for my kids not to come with it

Do you happen to have pictures of what this rash looks like?

What you are likely referring to is called pompholyx which I am very familiar with.

It can be genetic so it's possible to pass it on to kids but not always.

Please let me know what questions you have about it.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
