After tanning at a salon, if a rash or wound that looks like a bug bite appears that is warm to the touch and painful, there may be cause for concern. Other symptoms, such as high fever, vomiting, fatigue or malaise (a general feeling of being unwell), may accompany the injury. It’s best to see the doctor immediately, since staph spreads very quickly.
Your doctor will take a culture of the inflamed area and send it to the lab for analysis. Antibiotics will be prescribed if necessary. Staph is not always a grave condition; in fact some infections may go away on their own. It must be carefully monitored, however, because any turn for the worse will progress extremely quickly.
The appearance of warts may be a signal of HPV of one type or another and warrants a doctor visit as well. Warts may be flat or bumpy raised areas or sores on the genitals, hands, feet, elbows or knees. They may be accompanied by swelling, itching or pain. Some warts cause no discomfort at all. Even if symptoms and warts disappear, the virus is still present in your body. Treatment may involve freezing warts off with liquid nitrogen or using salicylic acid. Warts may also be burned off (cauterization) or removed surgically.
