Customer Question
I have had a...

I have had a rash on both palms for 2 days. It itches intensely, and small blisters are forming.

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

2 days... scratching relieves it momentarily; Gold Bond anti-itch cream for a while longer.

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

Getting a rash is an infrequent occurrence for me

What is your question about this rash?

Can you attach a picture?

What is it symptomatic of? How can I get rid of it? How can I avoid getting it again?
No
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

We can not diagnose a rash, and particularly without a picture anything is conjecture, and treatment requires your doctor...not us.

I can give you possibilities as to what it might be and how your doctor would treat it.

Are you saying , no, you can not attach a picture?

Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

Sorry?

Not sure what you are talking about now

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I'm saying no, I can't send you a picture.
What you're saying makes sense, but the last time I went to the walk-in clinic with a rash, the NP told me there were probably about 70 possible causes, and it was impossible to tell which it was. I don't think our dialogue is going to be much more productive, and I apologise for taking up your valuable time. What started out as an offhand question turned quickly into a transactional arrangement which I don't want to enter into at this time.( I don't have a smart phone, for one thing ) Sorry
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

Actually, I can focus you and direct you explicitly and give you the most likely causes.

But, I need a few more questions answered.

Does this come and go?

Does it ever happen on your feet?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.
