What are causes and treatments for a nose that swells becomes tender and turns red?
I live in Canada and we've had one heck of a warm front come in here for weeks, so trees are budding up, so are flowers and the allergies are flying through the air. Allergy meds are flying off the shelves. If you live in a warm state (or even had a warm trend in your State) it could simply be your allergies. If you have had allergies before and dread another bad bout, please look up "Intra" on Google and consider buying this product. Many of us in British Columbia use it because it's natural, you put a few drops in fruit juice or even water and you're off and running and yes, it most definetly helps stave off allergies big time and also helps build the immune system. If you have a red nose that is also red on each side going into the cheeks (the butterfly effect) then you may have Rosacea which is a chronic skin disease with a genetic predisposition. It is more common in women than men. It tends to occur in people with fair skin and may appear as early as the teens. In your earlier years it can be mistaken for a case of acne, visible manifestation of alcoholism, or even simply "rosy cheeked." The redness would make you feel as if you had a burning sensation on the skin. As you get older and it reaches the middle stages, the redness becomes ruddier and occupies more of the facial area. Pimple-like bumps and noticeable facial pores may appear, along with swelling in the area close to the nose. Rosacea can give you eye problems such as "dry eyes" burning and itching (often mistaken for allergies.) They can feel gritty as if having sand in the eyes. Eyelids may become swollen and red as well as sensitive to light, causing blurred vision at times. There are no known reasons for having Rosacea, but I am certain it is to do with some hormone issues. Stress certainly can trigger this if you are prone to Rosacea. Menopause can also bring it on as well as strenuous exercise (because it seems to attack the tiny blood vessels in the face.) Sunlight also is not good, so put a hat on (baseball hat, etc.) There is no known cure for Rosacea, but it can certainly be controlled. Keep a journal as to when you get these flare-ups and what foods you have eaten. Make notes of what activities you were doing before the outbreak. Use sunscreen with a high SPF daily but be sure they are non irritating to the skin (usually will say on the bottle.) I am not a doctor, so you may well have allergies, but please see your doctor and if it isn't allergies then have your doctor test you for Rosacea because early detection is the best thing you can do for you. Good luck Marcy

Alcohol dilates the blood vessel in the skin. Every time you have a drink, the blood vessels will dilate and remain permanently dilated until they lose their tone. Excessive d…rinking will lead to the development of telangiectasias or chronic dilation of the capillaries and a permanent flush on the face. Another effect of drinking alcohol is "blood-sludging" where the red blood cells clump together causing the small blood vessels to plug up, starve the tissues of oxygen, and cause cell death. With this increased pressure, capillaries break, create red eyes in the morning, or the red, blotchy skin seen on the heavy drinker's face
One reason for our ears to turn red is that at times our sympathetic nervous system kicks in on its own and causes our bodies to release adrenalin and noradrenalin. Noradrenal…in is the chemical responsible for relaxing the smooth muscle in the walls of the blood vessels. When the smooth muscle in the blood vessels relaxes the diameter of the vessel increases and the volume of blood passing through the blood vessel also increases. This is referred to as vasodilatation. When this happens the skin feels warm and may have a pink or red colour.This usually happens when we feel nervous or stressed and is part of the "fight or flight" mechanism, even though the only "threat" may be social. However, in some people the sympathetic nervous sytem is overactive. This can be caused by inherited genes. We have no conscious control over the sympathetic nervous system so it kicks in without our decision to be "embarassed."The sympathetic nervous system is part of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), the control system for the body that keeps all our internal organs functioning properly. These maintenance activities are primarily performed without conscious control or sensation, The nerves report directly back to the brain stem and can keep functioning even when the conscious mind is no longer working, hence the ability of some brain-dead patients to continue to breathe. The ANS controls heart rate, digestion, respiration rate, salivation, perspiration, diameter of the pupils, micturition (the discharge of urine), blushing, sweating, and erection.Uncontrollable blushing is also called Idiopathic Craniofacial Erythema. Treatments include anti-anxiety medications, clonidine (inhibits the action of noradrenaline), beta-blockers, hypnosis, psychotherapy, and as a last resort, surgery.Sweating is also controlled by the ANS and the cause of hyperhidrosis has been traced to overactivity in the sympathetic component, as opposed to the parasympathetic component, of the ANS. There are other causes of flushing and sweating. Some people sweat excessively because they are obese or they may be suffering from an overactive thyroid gland. Menopause is another obvious cause of both flushing and sweating. Flushing and sweating can also be prominent physical symptoms associated with the mental health condition known as social phobia. Flushing is almost never due to a serious medical condition with one notable exception, which is the rare condition known as carcinoid syndrome. Medication may also give rise to flushing. The list of possible culprits includes various hormonal treatments for prostate cancer; gylceryl trinitrate, which is used in the treatment of angina; tamoxifen, which is used in the treatment of breast cancer; raloxifene, which is used for treating osteoporosis; calcium channel blockers, which are used to treat high blood pressure and chlorpropamide, which is used for treating diabetes and can cause flushing if the person takes alcohol concurrently.
blood is going to the heart and organs instead of your hands, feet, nose, and ears depending on the weather.
It could be a bacterial infection, or it could be a yeast infection. Either way you need to get this treated by a medical professional. It may not even be related to t…he unprotected sex, but it is best to be sure.
Because of blood vessels flowing through the nose to keep it warm.
Squeeze your nose with ice for ten minutes. * Arnica (homeopathic remedy) taken orally or Arnica cream applied locally (to the nose area) is excellent for reducing swel…ling and bruising after an injury or surgical procedure (anywhere on the body). Arnica works in the same way for animals, too. In the UK and India, for example, many surgeons are giving Arnica both before and after surgery. Arnica can be purchased from any good health store.
Acne caused Cystic legion It could be what is called a cystic lesion, commonly caused by acne. It is generally a hard lump under the skin located on the fac…e, back, or neck (but can appear anywhere). Heat compresses are recomended. However whenever there is a hard lump anywhere on your body it should be seen by a doctor. Even if it is caused by acne a lot of times antibiotics are required to get rid of infection.
Could the herb arugula used in salads cause irritation on lips resulting in swelling and tenderness inside the mouth and lips?
Test yourself for an allergic reaction to this herb. Ask your doctor for advice on the correct and safest way to do this. It involves isolating the ingredient and elimin…ating all other factors that could cause these same symptoms.
could be from bowels and or uterus..you could possibly have IBS-constipation-uterine polyps-uterine fibroids-endometriosis-pregnancy etc there is so much involved in all… this i would just need some more information from you..like are you bleeding? are your bowel movements normal do you have any swelling that you can feel or see? etc
Any number of conditions could cause this, so do not try to copewith it on your own. See a doctor or Specialist Clinic. Your mindwill be set at rest if some of your more feare…d infections areruled out. Do not be frightened to attend a sexual health clinic.Times have changed and we can now talk more freely about our sexualparts. For self help I recommend Aloe Vera mixed with a drop of TeaTree, spread over the affected area. It may sting a little but itwill settle and cool. Do this after your bath or shower. And youcan consult online doctors, such as Dr Lee Xiaoping, before you goto the hospital.
This is something that you need to see a physician about.
If your dog's nose is swelling shut and there are sores present inside of it, there could be a variety of things wrong. Your dog may be having an allergic reaction to some…thing, it could have some type of autoimmune disease, or it could have a tumor or mass.
Your arm pits may be tender due to a sensitivity to your deodorant. You also have lymph nodes in the area which can become tender and sensitive at the beginning of any sic…kness.

Likely an infection. Call your doc for an antibiotic
