Bactroban for psoriasis

Common Questions and Answers about Bactroban for psoriasis

bactroban

I have been to several doctors, and have just about given up. Some doctors have said it is tinea, and another said it was psoriasis, because my SED rate was elevated which could have meant rheumatoid arthritis. None of the medicines I have been prescribed have really worked, and it just won't go away. I know this isn't very explanatory of my condition, if needed, I can take pictures to show you. This skin condition made me drop out of school because I was too embarrassed to go.
My son first broke out with this in mid-December and has since broke out in the same spot about 4 other times. Each time we use the Bactroban he was prescribed and it usually goes away within a few days. This last break out a few days ago happened practically over night and was a lot worse than the times before. We took him in and his doctor again said that it was Impetigo and prescribed Trimox and more Bactroban.
I washed all patches and applied vinegar followed by bactroban hoping to kill anything contagious. What is this and how do I treat? I'm worried it will spread.
Hello, For such dry skin, apply plenty of non perfumed good quality moisturizer. Soap should be used minimally. Moisturizers should be reapplied liberally during the day. You can also use a topical cortisone (steroid) cream or ointment like dermacort(hydrocortisone). Adding a humidifier to the central heating system of your home or using a humidifier also helps.
The Dr thought the first sore was cancer and i was on bactroban, didn't work, then i was on doxycyclin for 3 months, then i saw a dermatologist 5 mo later who took a skin sample finally but it came back inconclusive, i tried trymacinalone which took away the itchy lumps but they always come back.
Sure does look like a bacterial folliculitis,if so would respond to a course of antibiotics.Guttate psoriasis could be another possibility for i would have expected the folliculitis to be more localised.But then if so, still would respond to antibiotic,and this condition starts with a sorethroat and is generally self limiting.
I was born with and sadly it is the most troublesome disease to treat as what may work for me may not for you and location of where you live plays a big role. In most cases I would recommend Soriatane at 25mg a day to start and if you see no improvement than 50mg might help. It is however very expensive at nearly 1,700 to 2,000 a month so it's best to have really good insurance.
i recently shaved my pubic region never do it normally and i experienced instant itching i have psoriasis which i think has spread down there im on neotigason as a drug to combat it.. a few days later i noticed 3 brown perfectly smooth lumps around my shaft not even 3mm wide very small each with a hair folucle coming out. I thought HPV for sure so i cut them of with nail clippers.. i know i shouldnt have but since then 1week now no change just healing up..
After having lice removal treatment at the age of 15 my mother checked my hair and noticed a cluster of red bumps on the back of my neck. My father suggested maybe warts but since my syster worked for a dermatologist we asked her. She went on saying how it is from a "fat roll" on my neck...I don't have a fat roll on my neck. When I was 18 one of my friends said it looked like her other friends psoriasis on her neck. I do not know. I cannot see them but I have been told they are red.
He's still convinced it appears herpetic although the IGG tests were negative for both types and I've never had a cold sore or genital lesion. I do have psoriasis so he thinks it could something along the lines of herpeticum. I was reading up about it and it seems pretty rare. Would it be accompanied with fever if it were indeed herpeticum?
My dermatologist originally gave me a shot of cortisone in the area when the zit was still there and had prescribed Locoid (for the scarring?) and Bactroban (for the infection). The infection went away about three weeks ago and the area looked like it was getting better (the red mark was fading, though it looks like there might be a scar there - or a red blemish under the skin). I went to my doctor this past Tuesday for a follow-up.
Or should I get oral antibiotics for staph...and who should I go to for that? A normal doctor or a dermatologist?
Then, they sortof went a way for a couple weeks. Now, in the beggining of Sept, i noticed that i started to itch again, and this time, i would get weird plaques of skin and my skin was really dry and flakey. This went on, until a couple days ago, when I started my period again. Well, now i shaved again, and i have HORRIBLE itchy red bumps. they itch so bad, it disrupts my daily life. ALSO, i have little white looking zits too, scattered.
Insteadk, wash daily with Hibiclens (OTC antiseptic), apply bacitracin ointment to each boil after washing and also in your nostrils to suppress the growth of staph germs. Consider also seeing a doctor for a prescription for an oral antibiotic for a short while. It's not a vitamin deficiency. Best. Dr.
my problem is very similar to gayboi. I am taking Cephalexin and Bactroban cream,for two weeks ,it didn't seem woking for me. I am so frustrated... please I am so desperately for help!
I alerted my doctor who thought the sore more symptomatic of recurrent staph infection or psoriasis and saw no reason for concern that it might be HSV related and no reason to re-test. Yet I can't get over the lingering feeling of dread. Objectively I know I have little reason to suspect I have HSV 2, but I still have panic attacks over the matter. I want to be healthy, and none of this seems to make sense.
The second outbreak, a few months later, the GP took a sample and told me it was Genital Herpes. The only medication I remember ever having for the outbreaks is Bactroban topical ointment. Several years ago I discovered Lycine and started taking 500 or 1000 mg daily with my other vitamins. My outbreaks were only once or twice a year prior to lycine, and have been less since.
i too have had these same frustrating, insanely, itchy areas, which first started on my left palm, i've had that for months.... its a bit different than the bumbs i get on my legs... but my palm is getting better. at first it just started iching. then i got some bumbs. it gets real dry and started like it was peeling. from the beginning, i've put all kinds of lotions on it. it'd help, i'd get some relief but it never went away. after a while i thought it must be some form of eczema.
My ENT doc thought it might have been due to diabetes, but my tests came back clear of that. I wish I had suggestions, but for now I share your pain.
The treatment of choice for impetigo is an anti-bacterial ointment such as mupirocin (Bactroban) or bacitracin (Polysporin).
I have been using it for about 3-4 weeks now and the little bumps on my penis head have gone away but now i have noticed an itchy bump on the side of my penis which is a bit bigger.. also there is a bump on the edge of my penis head that had peeled and gone away for a few days and re-appeared in the exact same spot which seems to have formed as a bump/scar(not as itchy)... ...i have very itchy bumps on my inner thighs and butt cheeks that seem to be getting worse.
Shamefully, for almost 8 years I have been getting very small itchy blisters on various spots on my arms and legs. The small blisters develop and immediately itch intensely, which is how I know they're there. They have a clear fluid inside, with no puss. When I scratch them in my sleep or when they break, they often weep a little amber colored liquid. Also, when I scratch them, more tiny blisters will develop around the original blister, signifying an infection.
But then I became more and more worried, and began to research it and that's when I came across this website. After reading everything I decided to go see my OBGYN. He of course tested me for Herpes, and even though I had read everything that you have all been through, and knowing that none of your tests had come back positive, I was still nervous. He also tested me for a yeast infection.
I am 36 years old and have had the same partner (faithfully) for 11 years. About 10 years about I started having these sores develop in my vaginal region. They almost looked like little blisters. I will just call them Vaginal lesions. When they are about to show up the area will start to itch and burn slightly. Then the vaginal lesion arrives there is considerable pain. It will last for about a week then go away.
I was told in order for it to go away I had to establish a mositure management for my hands. I am still working on other solutions. I still have the blisters but not as many.
try cleansing your belly button with a q-tip dipped in tea tree oil twice a day for a week... it's great for clearing up bacteria and fungus and will likely resolve it. good luck!
Every article on the internet has to do with Strep B in prenatal women (when it is very dangerous for the baby) and nothing about Strep B for regular women in their 40's like me :) Thanks, I'd love to hear from anyone who has ever been treated for this disease or any doctors out there.
In addition to the compresses, she recommened cleansing with an antibacterial soap and prescribed Bactroban. It is a cream I put in each nostril for five days once a month. I will be very interested to see if this provides any relief. Neosporin with pain relief helps quite a bit. I too had endometriosis prior to my hysterectomy and ovarian cysts, but I have no idea if there is a correlation.
My husband has been having skin rashes around his eyes, raised small red bumps, for several months and just won
I found a person on the MSN body odor support forum who had a bad odor for a long time and then the odor went away after being treated for H. Pylori, but then the coughing and sneezing started after that. Interesting. Another person on the MSN board said he was also treated for H. Pylori and then the coughing/sneezing started! Question: Do any of you burp a lot? Here is a thread that should be read: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=561071#i Read the replies to that link also.
