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.

1980069 tn?1328912468 Pregnancy hormones bring about huge changes to almost every part of your body. Dry skin during pregnancy is usually brought on by a loss of bodily fluids. That’s because your body is sucking you dry so that it can provide all the necessary hydration for your baby’s development. Because your need for bodily fluids are increasing so much, it is almost impossible to keep up, meaning your skin is dehydrating. So make sure you’re drinking plenty of water at least 8 glasses a day.
Avatar f tn It is not infected, it is not itchy, just looks likesalty patches, and is dry. Is this something to do with a dry scalp that could be flaking onto my forehead and eyebrows?
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 m tn Hi i am a 14 years old male and lately i have notice dry, white patches of skin on my scrotum. This started out about a week ago as discolored patches of skin that flakes off a little at the base of my scrotum. This seem to have spread to my upper scrotum and is now very dry flaky. The flaky do ich but not too intensely. The driest part just peels off exposing a some what sensitive patch of skin. When i tried to scratch it off 2 days ago, tiny blisters the size of rice pellets formed.
Avatar f tn I went doctors a few months ago and they said it was dermatitis, I had small bubbles on one of my fingers and now it's on every finger on one hand. It's now turned to dry skin, when I bend my fingers the skin cracks and bleeds. Inbetween my fingers there's patches where my skin's come off. It's even on my palm in the centre in a massive patch. It can get really itchy but can can also clear up over night sometimes and then it just comes back.

Avatar f tn A few month ago I noticed my scalp being super itchy and I had dandruff, I then notices a couple of small dry itchy patches of skin on my back and upper legs. So I used the cream (Daktacort) on these patches and uses the medicated shampoo. As I work in Dance/Fitness my job requires me to sweat a lot usually 4/5 times a week. 8 weeks ago I began to notice more and more patches and I would start waking up a night with severe itching.
Avatar m tn Then I was given some cream with hydroquinone in it, it worked fine better than all the steriods I have been given but did not clear it completely (i put some of the hydroquinone cream in my body cream Cetaphil) I have acheived the best result so far but yet not completely solved also considering the side effects of hydroquinone, I am probably suffering from the side effects of it because I used it (Clear essence 2% hydroquinione)for years in africa and then stopped it I was never able to find
Avatar n tn It does sound like dry skin has it any 'pattern to it is it raised ?Vaseline is good for dry skin smear it sparingly ,it could be from where she is drooling, perhaps teething ,does she suck on her lower lip at all is she using a pacifier?
Avatar f tn a few weeks ago, my skin started to become very dry all over my body and very rough. I have dry flaky patches and my skin has started to peel on some parts (around hairline, chest, neck, face, breasts, nipples, back, hands, feet) This is very strange. When i shower I have to "bathe" in Eucerin lotion all over or else the dryness is unbearable and even burns. needless to say it also itches, although not horribly.
