Common Questions and Answers about Dry skin patches


Avatar f tn They start out just looking like dry skin patch then it's apears to Scab over. I've been to my doc. Numerous times. I have went to a specialist and they took a sample an the answer wasn't definitive but they "thought" scabies and gave me some lotion and a steroid. Which didn't help. They actually kind of went away on their own. But they seem to spread an I have noticed them now on my testicles an one on the shaft of my penis an now Im worrying much more.
Avatar n tn A week or so ago, I discovered two reddish, dry patches of skin on my penis. One on the front, the other on the back. Each are about 1cm in diameter. These patches are covered in some dry, flaky skin and are reddish in color, and are more noticeable when flaccid. My first thought was that these were caused by excessive and agressive masturbation, since I hadn't been using any lubrication. Will these skin patches clear up? Will there be permanent marks?
Avatar n tn I recently noticed some patches of what seems like dry skin, but I have had this for about 2 weeks now and I am starting to get nervous. The patches are red about 1cm and a half in size with flaky skin on top. Can you tell me what this might be and whether I should go to a doctor for treatment right away? Thank you.
Avatar n tn i have been having a problem with dry skin patches on my leg and shoulder which bothers me when i have clothing on it. the area on my shoulder gets irrated if my bra strap is directly on it. i also work in a retail store which is sometimes very hot and dry which between the clothing and the heat seem to make me perspire and irrate these areas. i also work with boxes in my receiving room and clothing where it is dusty and some of these boxes are from all over the world.
Avatar n tn And also I have almost perfectly round dry skin patches on my body. On my ribs under my arms, one is under my chin, on my breast, here and there. Maybe 15 or so... They aren't in patches, they are spread out. It does seem like on the inner most part of the circle it's fine but there is kinda blistery bumps also. No puss or anything just bumps in the circle, but definitely dry skin.
Avatar m tn A few years ago, before I lost my virginity, I would develope patches of dry skin on the head of my penis. They do not hurt, and seems to not be centered in one area other than the head. How ever when I lost my virginity and started having sex regularly, it went away. How ever a year later and now single, I found it coming back again. I'm thinking it may just be chaffing combined with he turn of the seasons/ drying out. But I am curious, is there some type of STD that would cause this?
Avatar n tn In particular, eczema is a type of inflammatory skin condition and may present as rough and dry spot on the skin on one part of the body to raw and bleeding patches of skin in various spots on the body. On adults, eczema usually occurs on the neck and face, as well as inside the crook of the elbow, ankle and knee. If it persists, have this evaluated by your doctor for proper management. Direct clinical examination is important to determine the diagnosis. Take care and keep us posted.

Avatar f tn You may need to have this assessed first as fungal infections may also present as dry patches of skin which may actually be itchy (but not always). Did these dry skin patches appear only after taking the pills?

Avatar n tn I have some strange areas or patches of what appears to be real dry skin. I cant tell if you would describe it as scaly or rash like. Its not red but the areas are rough and looks like small tiny hard bumps patched together. So far they are really only on my arms but I am concerned what they could be. Could it just be dry skin or does it sound like something more serious.
