Avatar_f_tn What is the best treatment for vaginal Eczema. I have this for years now, it comes and goes. I use Calendula gel when I have symptoms, it seems to help but not completely. Is there something that I can use that is more effective. It is very uncomfortable. Burning sensation, etc. I had a biopsy done a few years ago and results came back (SPONGIOTIC DERMATITIS) which I been told is like ECZEMA. Can you please help or have any comments regarding this condition.
Avatar_f_tn What your photograph shows is typical 'Atopic pleat' or 'Dennie-Morgan fold' found below the eyelid and is very characterstic identification for atopic dermatititis(atopic eczema).
Avatar_m_tn 24 Year Old Male - In Good Health Many months ago I had started exercising at a gym. I went about 5 days in a row, used the treadmill, weights or bike there for at least an hour each day. I worked my *** off. I usually run at home, but I really started to go to the gym to lift weights and since I was there I worked hard on the treadmill too so I could do it all at once. A few days after going, I had noticed a few very small irritated spots on my abdominal area above my hips.
Avatar_n_tn Ive had a red postule that is maybe half a centimeter in diameter for three months now in my pubic area. I originally thought that it was just an ingrown hair but i could never fish out any hair, ive tried to find any hair and there is nothing there. Also, it fills up with pus. It hasn't really gotten any bigger and it is the only one that i have. It doesn't hurt too much unless it rubs against something hard or i pop it.
Avatar_m_tn Skin is easily irritated (even by a bit of make up) and some times burns. I also have eczema on my vagina and have done for many years but its inside the lips and I use a cream so it causes me now problems. I also get thrush a lot. Please help.

For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used and also use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin. If still the symptoms do not improve then please get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist and get seborrheic dermatitis and dermatitis ruled out.

Avatar_n_tn Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema.
Avatar_m_tn Hello, From your symptoms the chances of eczema are more. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Wash the areas several times with fresh water and do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps.
Avatar_m_tn ive had this for about a week now, and has not gone away .there is no pain and my testicles allways itch ,especially when they hit the open air what could this be ?

Avatar_m_tn Hello, From the symptoms the possibility of fungal infection and eczema and for the bumps, the possibility of folliculitis needs to be ruled out. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful.

Avatar_n_tn Almost seems like keratosis pilaris. My dermatologist told me I have type 2 Eczema, but I'm not sure this is eczema. For the most part they seem like pimples, If I squeeze them white liquid comes out, and they are on all of my hair pores. I do have severe dry skin, and my body is covered with red patches(rashes im guessing). I don't know what do to, I've tried all the lotions wal-mart has to offer, and still nothing.

Avatar_m_tn Recently I masturbated 2 times in a day and my skin on my penis didn't like it, as it started to become really irritated and started flaking, like eczema. The skin was dry and cracked, and the next day I masturbated and used a certain moisturizing cream and the next day after I started to feel an irritation on my penis right where the skin was broken and dry 2 days prior. The skin was still not totally back to normal but it wasn't cracked and broken.
Avatar_f_tn Hello, It can be due to folliculitis. Keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar_n_tn The spots are not raised. They've been there for the past few days and appear to be fading. They're not painful, just making me wonder.
Avatar_m_tn Hi, for the past few years I have been getting red spots on my head, generally around the nape of my neck and above my sideburns (all within an inch of my hairline). They're not sore to touch and don't have a head, but ever now and then they do get sore to touch. I do shave my head yet my mother has the same issue and of course she doesn't. I've never suffered from acne, but still have the odd bout of eczema every now and then..
Avatar_n_tn You can apply an anti-bacterial cream like mupirocin and seeif it helps.Try it 2-3 times a day for a week on the lesions.Never try to pop lesions because they can definitely get infected. He could also dust the areas with anti-fungal powders available OTC. If it does not subside with either he could try corticosteroid ointments, creams or lotions.

Avatar_m_tn Hi I had a question about a problem I have been experiencing in the area of my belly button. My belly button for the last year or so has been developing this yellowish crust on a consistent basis which I end up yanking out of that area a multiple times a week. In addition there is a scaly/flaky skin layer that I pull out as well. I often seem to find belly button lint in there sometimes. I am freaking out what could this be??
Avatar_f_tn Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms. Folliculitis is infection and inflammation of the hair follicles. The condition may be superficial (i.e., on the surface of the skin) or deep within the follicles.The most common cause of folliculitis is infection by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus.
