Avatar n tn I moved from a very humid climate to a dry, colder climate/higher altitude this winter. Since moving here, we both have developed rashes throughout our body. Dry skin, kind of scaly but not quite, just noticible, red patches some no bigger than a dime some larger. They itch too. I have to assume that this is due to the climate change, but wonder what would be good treatment. I have tried a combination of a good moisturizer mixed with hydrocortisone cream with no luck.

Avatar f tn I am almost 12 weeks, and my hands are really dry, and i have patches on my face that are dry. and on other parts of my face, i am full of acne ( Not fun) I assume it is part of the pregnancy, as I never had any of this prior. I have tried putting lotion (thickly layered on) on my hands and then placing a cotten sock or if you have them, a cotten glove on before going to bed It has worked wonders for me.
Avatar f tn I have dark patches of skin in my armpits. They look like dry, grayish patches of skin under my entire underarm. What is this? And what can I do to get rid of them. I have had them for years. Thanks!!
Avatar m tn It then turned into a small dry patch of skin, until it flaked off and cleared away. I used some hydrocortisone cream on it. Then a few weeks later I noticed another spot on my torso. I immediately used hydro cream on it and it didn't get any bigger than a pencil erasure and cleared up much more quickly. I then got another on my chest which remained even smaller and now I think I see one beginning on my forearm. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Avatar f tn I have had itchy, dry patches all over my upper chest, neck, and upper back, with a few extending to my underarms, lower back, and lower abdomen for over a month, almost a month and a half now. They were very red when they started, a few of them tan-ish, and not near as itchy as they are now. Now they are smaller patches, pinkish, and very itchy. They change a little very day. I have tried antihistamines and cortisone ointment, but that didn't help at all, so it isn't an allergy.

Avatar n tn I'm 15 weeks 6 days. This is my second pregnancy and with my first, I never dealt with dry skin issues. But with this one, I've developed dry skin patches on my back, which are also itchy! I have a doctor appointment December 6 and just wondering if any other moms to be deal with this same problem!!
Avatar m tn Pityriasis alba is not due to a vitamin deficiency and is a common skin condition mostly occurring in children and usually seen as dry, fine-scaled, pale patches on the face. No treatment is required and the patches in time will settle in due course of time. The redness, scale and itch if present may be managed with simple emollients and sometimes hydrocortisone, a weak steroid, is also used. Severe cases may require PUVA therapy.
Avatar f tn I've just recently started developing a couple of round patches of dry skin on my body. First one and now another. They do not repond to any kind of moisturizing, no matter what I use and they do not go away! There are no raised edges nor does there seem to be any abnormal color change to the skin... just the dry patch that feels rough to the touch, kind of like sandpaper. The rest of my body seems absolutely fine so far.
Avatar f tn This pregnancy has done horrible things to my skin. It's sooo dry and it's cracking and bleeding and then it gets wind chapped easier. Can anyone recommend a good repairing lotion or balm??
Avatar f tn I have a dry patches of skin probably feels like dead because when I pinch it i dont feel anything and during summers and rains the dry patches turn into raised itchy bumps. I have been suffering from this problem over a year kindly help me out.
Avatar n tn Hi This may be a tinea versicolor which is a fungal infection.This type of fungal infection may present as white patches on the skin and there may be very fine scales present on affected areas.They are not very itchy and the borders are not as well demarcated compared to vitiligo which may also present with white patches. Applying topical antifungals may help. Keep the area dry and clean. Do not scrub or allow wet clothes to dry on the body.
Avatar f tn Hi - I'm currently experiencing some trouble with my skin that I've had once about a year ago as well. I have mild to moderate acne on my face. I do get nodular/cystic acne, mostly along the jawline, around my ears. Occasionally I get it on my forehead or chin area. Generally I just use an acne cleanser usually twice per day and deal with it. Well a month or so ago my skin started breaking out a little more than normal. I had made no change to any skin care or makeup or anything.
