This post doesn’t EXACTLY fit into my blog vision but I do want to share about my freak forehead infection of last week.
About lunchtime, I’d happened to take a look in the bathroom mirror and noticed that my forehead was raised, near my hairline. Over the course of the next few days, the swelling decreased and I was able to make facial expressions with my forehead again!
Take it from a lifelong cellulitis sufferer have some Cipro handy.I currently hae exactly the same swollen forehead.YIKES! I recently had 2 knee surgeries to repair damaged cartilage due to a condition I have called Osteochonditis Dissecans (OCD). The main cause of psoriatic arthritis is unknown although a combination of genetics, the immune system and environmental factors are thought to be the main culprits. Generally, psoriatic arthritis treatment involves a combination of exercise and anti-inflammatory medications (NSAID). The exercise programs can be done at home alone or with the help of a physical therapist and are customized according to the patientв’s condition.
White color is visibly seen on the area between the iris and the upper eyelid if a person has bulging eyes. Graves’s disease, histiocytosis, hyperthyroidism, orbital cellulitis, leukemia or other forms of cancer, perioribital cellulitis and neuroblastoma are some of the other factors that cause proptosis.
Hypothyroidism is the condition in which adequate quantities of thyroid hormone is released in the body since TSH receptors trigger its production. Cancers like leukemia, melanoma and brain tumors can directly affect the eyes leading to protrusion of eyes.
Your doctor will measure the extent of bulging eyes using a ruler or by special instrument called exopthalmometer. Treatment for protopsis depends entirely on the underlying issue, if it is caused by any health factor.
Preseptal cellulitis is an eye infection which is commonly found in children of age group 4-7. Some of the symptoms and sign of preseptal cellulitis are redness around the eye, discharge of whitish fluid from the affected eye, and swelling of eyelids. I was administered an antibiotic shot in my arm (OUCH!!!) and we were on our way with a sheet of paper explaining Cellulitis and a prescription for more antibiotics. In the last 5 years, we haven’t encountered any substantial injuries or sicknesses so this was completely new ground for us.
You'll find my surgery and recovery under 'My Knees' and I regularly post about post-surgery recovery.


The gene marker HLA-B27 is found in about 50% of cases of people with this type of psoriasis. The type of psoriatic arthritis that develops depends on distribution of the joints affected.
If there is progressive inflammation and joint destruction even after NSAIDs treatment, some more potent medications like methotrexate, corticosteroids and anti-malarial medications are used.
Ice application after the exercise routine helps to minimize the post exercise soreness and inflammation. Depending on the underlying health factor a person may get fever, excess of sweat, irritation and headache.
But there are some cases where people acquire this condition due to underlying disease like glaucoma or thyroid problem. Certain serious type of eye infection can cause swelling and protrusion of eyes leading to protopsis. In case if the measurement is out of reach for measuring he may do MRI scanning or ultrasound scan for verifying the extent of damage caused. In case bulging eyes are caused by high blood sugar, medications are given to control diabetes.
The eyelids may get infected or the soft tissue surrounding the eye may develop inflammation. But this would have been totally unlike me – I am very careful to put on lotion with SPF every morning, especially when going to play outside. During dinner, I’d felt a pressure near my eyebrows, like a headache, and reached up to rub it. Causes of Cellulitis are a small scratch (or bug bite) that has gotten infected and swells. He kept calm and comforted me when I was on the verge of tears, he was quick to research the best urgent care and hospital to take me to, held my hand the whole time and asked questions I hadn’t thought to ask. Here you'll find my adventures in the Rocky Mountains, fitness and food endeavors and DIY craft projects.
Psoriatic arthritis is a systemic rheumatic disease that also causes inflammation in body tissues away from joints other than the skin like the heart, lungs, eyes and kidneys. Several other genes have also been identified to be common among people with psoriatic arthritis. There are 5 types of psoriatic arthritis: asymmetric and few joints, symmetrical, spondylitis, arthritis mutilans and distal interphalangeal joints. Psoriatic arthritis photos after treatment look much better than those taken before treatment is administered.


It can be unilateral which is bulging out of one eye and bilateral in which both the eyes are bulging. Some of the other signs of proptosis are discomfort in opening and closing the eyes, difficulty in sleeping or blinking, dryness of eyes, discomfort or pain in making eye movements, scarring seen inside the eyes and excess of white part on the eyes. Similarly for problems like thyroid hormone and other diseases suitable treatments are given to manage the symptoms effectively. I’d likely been bitten by a bug on Saturday (both Alex and I noticed a red, itchy bump on my forehead) and it got infected sometime within the next 24 hours. Anywho, I’ve been trying to find out more about it and when I saw a pic of your forehead, I knew I had to look no further. Certain changes in the immune system are also thought to be factors that contribute to the development of psoriatic arthritis. The arthritis usually develops around the ankles, knees and joint in the feet which then become stiff, swollen, red, hot and painful.
The intensity of bulging of eyes varies from mild to severe and only an eye doctor can assess the intensity of seriousness.
You can detect this by looking at photographs taken some years ago and comparing it with recently taken photo. This in turn develops into swelling of fat cells due to accumulation of fluid forcing the eyes to bulge out from the socket. Glad you look normal again and so glad that my dad won’t be walking around with a star trek forehead for the rest of his life. In some cases, joint inflammation in the fingers and toes causes swelling of the entire digit giving them a sausage appearance. It is believed to be caused by the increased pressure inside the eyes due to underlying disorder.
While I would have rather not spent one of my few Florida nights in the ER, I’m thankful that I ended up in the ER with him by my side. After a quick confirmation in the bathroom mirror, we left the restaurant and started making phone calls – to our parents, to urgent care locations.
