Bactroban for psoriasis

Common Questions and Answers about Bactroban for psoriasis


1113779 tn?1269167331 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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..
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Or should I get oral antibiotics for staph...and who should I go to for that? A normal doctor or a dermatologist?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn Hi, This could be seborrhoeic dermatitis. It is a skin disorder affecting the scalp, face, and trunk causing scaly, flaky, itchy, red skin. It particularly affects the sebum-gland rich areas of skin. Side effects to inflammation may include temporary hair loss. If severe outbreaks are untreated for extended intervals, permanent hair loss may result, because of damage to hair follicles. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn (3 times a day for 20 min) Apply Bactroban/municoprin ointment to affected area after bath and also apply pure coconut unrefined (a good quality brand) use this after every bath Apply Eczema lotion for itchiness. Gold bond has a good one and Aveeno. Also purchase a pro biotic of good quality and take it daily to replenish good bacteria. After one week of this regime I can stop crying bc my baby is looking soooo much better and actually has an appetite again.
Avatar n tn I do, however, was diagnosed with psoriasis on my scalp last year, with the problem being present for the past 2-3 years. I may have psoriatic arthritis starting to appear in my lower extremities (mother had psoriasis, brother has it, and my son has it), don't know if that would have anything to do with it ??? Thank you your replies and suggestions. I will take your advice and seed medical attention for the blood and urine tests, and a biopsy. Have a great night.
Avatar f tn 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.
288415 tn?1231634102 Av, its horrible. Mine has been going on for three years. The only benefit is that I do not hear my husband's snoring. I lay down and they immediately clog. I did used to get really nasty smelling crud out of them every morning. I have had times when my jaw is so sore, or my ear, or below my ear. This has been such a pain in "the ear" for me. Richt now the itchiness is truly driving me nuts.
Avatar n tn Okay, I just found some information, but I will leave it up to you to read all of the information : ) "Problems that affect other parts of the body also may affect the vulva. Psoriasis, for instance, is a skin disease that can appear on the vulva as red, thick, scaly patches that may itch. Vulvar Dystrophy A vulvar dystrophy is abnormal skin on the vulva.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn looking substance called keratin.They may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. A cutaneous horn is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. Cutaneous horns usually are asymptomatic.But sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn The treatment of choice for impetigo is an anti-bacterial ointment such as mupirocin (Bactroban) or bacitracin (Polysporin).
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
