Common Questions and Answers about Dry skin patches on body


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 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 n tn 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 n tn i started to notice this condition a few months after i got eczema on my temples and forehead. i have similar dark patches on my body where i have had bad eczema and i was wondering if these would go away too. however, i am unsure if the dark skin on my forehead was caused by the eczema as my father has also had a similar problem his entire life.
Avatar m tn I have these dry, dark patches of skin that flake a lot and they're located on my back, stomach and neck area. In some places it is a very dark brown color and other it looks very dry and faded. If it matters, I have had eczema when I was very young and still have very dry skin on my jawline, nose and a little on my cheeks since 4th grade (I am now in 6th). I cannot pinpoint exactly when I obtained this skin condition but I know that I didn't have it two years ago. Please help!
Avatar m tn My daily dosage of vitamin C from fresh citrus was very high, and two dry patches on my upper lip (upper left and upper right side) formed which is so dry. I have B-complex supplements too before the dry patches appeared. I will try Tea Tree Oil or other moisturizer as others suggested here and then report back.
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!!

In eczema there are scaly thick patches of dry skin which may occur in flare ups.In keratosis pilaris there are dry skin patches that have reddish bumps. These patches are usually itchy and become worse when air humidity levels are low. They are seen on the thighs, upper arms and cheeks. Conditions like hypothyroidism can lead to dry skin.
Avatar n tn Hello i have small round, oval dry patches on my body at first there was one on my boob and it got bigger then one showed up on my inner left forarm then i found more little ones on both my boobs that fade then come back then some more on my belly then one on my lower back near my hip on my right side then had some small ones on my neck. some of the look like ringworm but fade and disapeare then later come back all red or look like a dry spot. they do not itch or peal.
Avatar f tn I have brown dry patches growing on my stomach, back, underarms, under breast and neck. The dryness is also spreading onto my chest. In the shower the dry skin gets soft and I can scratch it off but it lightens the spots. It still comes back after a couple of days dark. I'm a little overweight but not drastically. It's not itchy unless my skins really really dry. It's just very ugly and I've been dealing with this since I was 16 and now that I'm 19 it has grown all over my upper body.
Avatar f tn Recently (the past 2 year) I periodically get this same itchyness on patches of my scalp (not dandruff). More recently (last 6 months) I get dry skin patches all over my body (leg, thigh abdoman,buttox,waist and upperarms) these are not as itchy. All of these symptoms come and go as they please, I can not make them go away and have been unable to trace down what causes the flare up, they don't always appear at the same time.
Avatar n tn I’ve got horrible a patches of dry, red skin on my chin mainly, my skin used to be perfect. I’ve tried a wide range of moisturizers and creams and e45, but don’t do anything, make it worse if anything. Any ideas what I can do...?

1521856 tn?1291169828 I have extremely dry skin all over my body. I have several darkened extra dry patches on my upper arms and back, and one on my elbow. It doesn't matter how much lotion, vaseline, or anti-fungal creme I put on my skin, it is always dry. I've looked up eczema and psoriasis and nothing seems to be the same as what I have. I am really suffering and in desperate need of some help! I have tried dermarest medicated lotion as well, and it did nothing.
Avatar f tn My doctor informed me that my body was allergic to certain bacteria or fungai on my skin. Other people have this on their skin too but some just don't react to it like others. Anytime I see signs of it, I try to use Selson Blue on it immediately to minimize it from spreading. If it gets itchy or unbarable, the best lotion I have found is GoldBond Triple Action Relief with Methol (green bottle). It can be found at any drug store, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc...
Avatar n tn For years, I've been getting round, dry patches...mostly on my upper arms. It started in the winter months but then even when they would seem to go away, it left my skin discolored in those places. In the summer when I get tanner, those spots remain. They now seem to becoming more frequent and in more places then my arms. For a little background...I received allergy shots for 4 years when I was a kid.
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 m tn Hello, Dry skin results when there is not enough water in the stratum corneum for it to function properly. Too much soapy water, exposure to harsh chemicals, the normal aging process and certain types of skin diseases are some of the causes of decreased amounts of protective skin oils which in turn causes dry skin. The mainstay of management is liberal use of moisturizers after washing with luke warm water. Soap should be used minimally.
1980069 tn?1328916068 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 n tn This caused dry skin on other parts of my body during treatment (especially lips and face). Could this be a side effect? 4. About 15 years ago I remember finding a tube of medication that said something about "Penis Shaft Irritation" that probably belonged to my Father. Obviously I don't want to ask him about it. Is there something that could be hereditary? 5. Or anything else that you could tell me about this condition would be helpful.
Avatar m tn Or do u still think that its not eczema. Let me redescribe my symptoms. A little bit of itching on scrotum.The skin on scrotum is drying.And it was peeling off.The new skin that came after the peeled off skin was red and smooth and itches a little.I used Lotrix Cream once a day.It stopped the peeling of skin,but the dryness is still there and a very little bit of itch near scrotum.My aanus is fine.No itching or rash there or on penis.
Avatar n tn my boyfriend has dry skin on his penis...there are different patches, they dont itch, burn or hurt. We've both gotten checked for stds and have come up clear. what could this be? we have unprotected sex so it couldnt be condom irratation, we do use coconut oil sometimes for lube. thanks :) This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/247053'>flaking dry skin on penis--hsv? anything else?</a>.
Avatar n tn i stumbled across a skin condition called melasma while i was googling contraceptive pills, and realised this sounds exactly like the patches on my skin that i have, but i have it on my back and arm not my face (although my back and arms probably get more sun than my face because i wear hats).
