I got the bullous myringitis last year on my right ring finger. It was a bit of a bump, but it was a good bump. I had surgery on the same finger in August and I am healing well. I do have a scar, but it is healing well and I am back to my normal self.
Bullous myringitis is a rare autoimmune condition. Patients develop a rash, often on the face, hands, and feet, and sometimes in the ears. It’s similar to the rash that accompanies lupus. In bullous myringitis the skin lesions are red, but they don’t spread, so the rash is not a characteristic of the disease. It can happen on any part of the body.
Some patients react to the bullous rash by scratching or biting themselves. They then become more active and more prone to infections. Some do not. I have never had this happen to me, but I have had others.
Bullous myringitis can occur as a result of a variety of factors, including infection or trauma. Bullous myringitis can especially affect the skin of the face, hands, and feet. The rash is usually red, but can be a combination of red and purple. One of the things that you can do as a doctor is to take an examination of the patient and to look for other possible causes. You can try to do a blood test or to take a skin biopsy.
The best way to figure out what happened is to have a dermatologist or other professional do a full skin exam. The doctor will look for any injuries, scrapes, or lesions on the skin. Then they will run a full blood test, which will show results in a few hours. The doctor can also do skin biopsies, which are more invasive, but can help pinpoint a specific cell type involved.
The most dangerous thing that can happen to a bullous myringitis patient is that the area can become infected and cause problems. If you notice any lesions on the skin, they should be taken care of immediately. In this case, it’s important to stay calm and do what the doctor says. If you’re having problems, it’s probably a good idea to call a dermatologist, who will be able to give you the proper treatment.
The problem with bullous myringitis is that it is often confused with psoriasis. In fact, the two are very similar. In bullous myringitis, blood vessels on the skin are inflamed (which is why you see the red part on the skin). Psoriasis is generally caused by skin cells getting out of control and forming small red lesions.
Bullous myringitis is caused by tiny blood vessels that develop around the skin of the hair follicles. It is an inflammatory condition, so the doctor usually treats it with antibiotics and steroids. With psoriasis, the condition is usually treated with heat. But if you do see the doctor, they can also give you a cream that is designed to stop the inflammation and possibly shrink the blood vessels. This is called laser therapy.
With bullous myringitis, the doctor wants to get the blood vessels to shrink. The doctor usually does this with a laser. It’s not common but the doctor will prescribe it to you if you’re having pain in your ears or skin.
Not to be confused with bullous pemphigoid, bullous pemphigoid is a much more rare condition and usually is treated with a steroid. If you see a doctor, they can prescribe you some steroid cream or give you an injection to get it under control. The only difference with bullous myringitis is that your ear or skin will be red and puffy.
