Hi, my apologies in advance if this is a profoundly stupid question but I've been searching for an answer to it on the web for 3 days now, without success, so thought I'd try HU!
I have been trying to identify small itchy scaly patches I have on my face (just under my eye) and on my nipple for a while now. Paget's Disease of the nipple has come up, and it looks like a possible match, but I see no mention of it for the face. Additionally I've had what I thought was thrush for 5 months now, but I am wondering if it might be the other manifestation of Paget's Disease (of the vulva).
My question is, is the Paget's Disease of the bone connected in some way to the skin versions? If so, how, exactly? If not, does anyone know why they have the same name? Is this entirely coincidental?
Also, anyone who knows about the skin versions, and whether it's possible to have them both, or whether the facial skin can be affected - I'd be super-grateful. I don't want to put myself through the indignity of a doctor's visit for all my rude bits if it can humanly be avoided! Many thanks...
P.S. Also does anyone know if there is a forum dedicated to the skin versions - I haven't been able to find one - thanks!
