Dry skin elderly

Common Questions and Answers about Dry skin elderly


Avatar f tn After each incontinent episode you must clean the skin thoroughly with a good cleansing soap like Dial, Ivory or some type that does not contain fragrances. Dry the skin by patting it dry and not rubbing. I would then suggest some kind of a protective skin barrier like A&D, Vaseline or baby "diaper" products. You can discuss this with your pharmacist as he/she will have the best suggestion for these products.
Avatar m tn For a few years, I've had these small dry bumps on the skin beneath my eye like it shows in the picture. I also have some discoloration at the skin on the corner of my eye, where it's a bit pale and white. I'm mostly concerned about the bumps, but if someone has a suggestion for the discoloration too, I'm all ears. :) P.S. I wear glasses, if that's of any help!
Avatar f tn the skin was dry and from experience i knew that new skin had started to form.now 48 hours later the skin is completely dry but the terrible itch still remains. i have cut my nails short to lesson damage from scratching.i find that the loose skin should be left alone to shed itself without my interference.because when i remove loose flaking skin, part of what i am peeling off. is new skin still being formed.the wetness (though not runny) appears again.
1904757 tn?1355329935 Hello, If there is any appearance of a rash like dry skin or fish like skin then the possibilities of psoriasis and icthyosis should be ruled out, otherwise it should be left as such. A biopsy skin can confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn About 2 months prior, dry skin developed a sore on the left leg shin about six inches above the ankle. The skin area was very dry and a round spot (about the size of a half dollar coin) of the skin began to break down until it became a open sore. It took over a month to heal with treatment. Now that same area is developing blisters. I developes evenly as one blister. It doesn't hurt. I put ointment on it to relieve dry skin and it broke open. Water came pouring out.
Avatar m tn I have a 17 year old Maine Coon kitty who usually develops dry and itchy skin in the fall and winter but this year the symptoms have been more severe, he keeps itching himself (he does it in a quick, flailing way too where his whole body will shake) until he has severe bald patches and bloody places on his body.
Avatar f tn Now I am starting to see redness on my school age child that resembles this condition as well as dry skin in the ear lobe. It seems like a rare condition from what I have read. Ive been told its not contagious but now they've started getting this on their face and their scalp is fine. Could my overgrowth go on to things like pillows, the couch, bed and cause this? Being so rare should we be worried there's something underlying causing this?
Avatar f tn I work at a clothing retailer and today an elderly Middle Eastern woman fell and began bleeding profusely. I’m only 17 years old and have never really had any first aid training. I felt really bad so I jumped into action and did the best I could. I got gloves and some bandages from our office and helped her. There was a lot of blood, but I don’t think I came into contact with it through the gloves.
Avatar m tn t know if all of these relates, but I also have acne prone/dry (combination) skin. I am very scared that I have skin cancer. I will be seeing a dermatologist soon but if anyone knows what may be causing all these problems please let me know!
Avatar f tn She is losing hair around eyes, head, nose line, tail tip is bald, and now has dry scaley patch on her back. Took her to vet they did 3 scrapes 1 deep and couldn't find anything. They put her on steroids that made her sick. I'm at a loss of what this is. Oh and her breathe is a bad odor, not bad breathe, but smells funky.

1980069 tn?1328912468 Rinse your face twice daily with a gentle cleanser specially for dry skin. Soaps removes natural oils from the skin, so try using a moisturizing body wash. This will maintain the essential oils for your skin. For extremely dry skin, try using a mechanical exfoliate once a week to get rid of any flaking skin. When moisturizing choose an emollient moisturizer and don’t forget sun block, not only will sun exposure worsen dry skin, it will also put you at risk for skin cancer.

Avatar f tn Try putting coconut oil on your face. I have very dry skin and sensitive skin and that the only thing that doesn't make me itch. Maybe also put a cool mist humidifier in you room at night. Try to drink some more water. Those r the 3 things that help me.
