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 m tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination,but it can be due to seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp under the nose or anywhere on face. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily).
Avatar f tn I wash my face with warm water to wash off the dead skin cells , then mosturise , but i dont know if this is just dry skin or an actual skin condition that requires medical advice. After i wash my face the area above my eyebrow leaks and is sticky? I dont know if this is my natural oils or not. Even after i moistuise it , it leaks and looks like little water droplets on my skin? I do not use things like face washes that aggravate my skin , its just really dry.
Avatar m tn I noticed after I came out the shower my skin wash really dry (looked like a dry river bed), it was not red nor itchy just scaley and it only appeared on my cheeks. The doctor prescribed me daktacort cream which I used over 2 weeks.....this resolved the problem but my skin still goes dry after showering or swimming, its not like before just looks dry and flaky but no redness, i use an oil free moisterizer which takes the dryness away.
Avatar n tn I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 2 months ago. Recently, the skin all around my vagina has become very dry, and itchy, especially near the perineum. I’ve always had some dry skin in the area, but it has gotten exponentially worse. I don’t know if this to do with an STD, or more in relation to the change in weather. (I’m prone to dry skin, and the heater and winter conditions do not help.) The itching and dryness go away, temporarily, with the application of Vagisil.
Avatar m tn Lately the dry area has been spreading to the edge of my lip. The area gets real dry, the skin hardens and it became darker than the rest of my shadow on my face. I can natuarlly get darker in the summer due to my puerto rican/south american descent. I've always used cream on my face and hands. It is very dusty here and the water isnt like in the states. Is there anything you can tell me about this? Its becoming very annoying. Can you give me any suggestions? Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have rough itchy dry skin on my ankle nothing has helped. What is it and what can I do to get rid of it?
Avatar f tn Hello, It can be due to dermatitis skin. You need to get it examined from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment is diagnosis specific. You should also maintain hygiene and try to keep the area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid deodorant / cosmetics. You can also use calamine lotion or cream with zinc oxide paste applied directly to wet skin after bathing.
Avatar n tn I have a nagging problem of dry and flakey facial skin on forehead, around the eyes and cheeks and on chin. I have tried several mosturisers it will not go away.
Avatar n tn I have a question and it is rather embarassing. I have very dry skin. I can't really afford to go to a dermatologist and if I could I'd be much to embarassed to show my face. I have under my arm pits skin irratation that I believe coems from the type of deodorant I use and scratching. The skin is breaking and it's showing the pink meat of my skin. I'm very embarssed to wear sleaveless or get undressed because of it.

Avatar n tn It is a skin disorder affecting the scalp, face, and trunk causing scaly, flaky, itchy, red skin. It particularly affects the sebum-gland rich areas of skin. Side effects to inflammation may include temporary hair loss. If severe outbreaks are untreated for extended intervals, permanent hair loss may result, because of damage to hair follicles. http://en.wikipedia.
506570 tn?1215839900 I have tried researching skin conditions in Malamutes and found a lot of information on zinc-responsive dermatosis in Alaskan Malamutes. I would love to know if anyone else is giving their dog zinc supplements and how you went about finding out that your dog has zinc-responsive dermatosis. I have spoken to my vet about this and they didn't seem to know a lot about it. Also, the dandruff flakes are on his sides and body in general.

Avatar m tn Hello All, for many years (about 6) I have had a sever problem with dry skin. At first I thought it was dandruff, but as the years progress it has started to affect other areas. The main areas that have dry, flaky skin are: Hair (especially at the hair line), on the sides of my nose, in the ear in between eye brow, in eye brow, and recently I have noticed behind the ear.

I'm 22 years old and for the past 6 or so years, I have had dry ITCHY as all get out, flaky skin on my outer labia moreso on the left side than the right. I came across this website because of a thread (http://www.medhelp.org/forums/WomensHealth/messages/2890.html) but, unfortunately, the thread was closed for commenting. So, I have made this new one to hopefully get some answers.

Internal causes include hormonal imbalance, poor health, poor hygiene, allergic hypersensitivity, lack of rest, emotional stress, excessive consumption of sugar, fat or starch, fungal infections and heredity predisposition.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I have sensitive skin but for months I have had really bad dry skin under my beard. It's so bad that if I rub my beard, chunks of skin fall out. This also happens in my eyebrows. It is effecting my life greatly, very embarrassing. What can I do to cure this ??
Avatar n tn You can also use a barrier cream with zinc oxide paste or petroleum jelly applied directly to wet skin after bathing. If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. 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 doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
1516332 tn?1360769186 Hello, It can be due to dandruff skin. Dandruff can cause either an overly dry scalp with itchy white flakes that may be waxy or greasy, or it can manifest as an oily scalp with scales. Eat a healthy diet. You can also take vit B6 and vit A and E which are good for hair and skin. Try medicated shampoos for dandruff. There are a number of over-the-counter shampoos available that can help.
