Possible causes

  • Photosensitivity

    A condition in which the skin is extremely sensitive to sunlight and ultraviolet rays. It can be caused by medications and autoimmune disease (body's immune system attacking its own cells).

  • Urticaria

    An itchy, allergic rash with red bumps, also known as "hives". The causes are broad, ranging from foods and medications to viral infections and bee stings. In most cases, the rash disappears within 24 hours, however medical attention is needed if there is facial swelling or breathlessness.

    Also called sebaceous cysts, these harmless bumps under the skin are more common in men. They can be caused by skin irritation, injury, or surgery.

  • Suppurative lymphadenitis

  • Folliculitis / furuncle / carbuncle

Related serious diseases

  • Venous embolism

    Venous embolism is a condition where a venous clot travels from one location to another. Most commonly, this happens when a deep venous thrombosis (clot) develops in the larger veins of the leg, breaks off, and travels to the lungs (the clot is now called a pulmonary embolism). Causes of venous thrombosis include recent surgery, spinal cord injury or other reasons for immobility, hip or leg fractures or other trauma, cancers, heart failure, stroke, obesity, and inherited risk factors like gene mutations causing blood to clot more easily.

  • Angioedema
  • Cervical lymphadenitis
