Avatar n tn Always searching for an alternative to the cortizone, a friend relayed her story, she had it also except a much worse case went through a radical moist dressing treatment at the Mayo clinic that worked for her using Robathol oil in combination with Vanicream for moisture, gloves at night. I am tying it, it seams to help.
Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that.

Avatar m tn The pH will be neutralized. It is actually a treatment they do use for eczema. But, since you have psoriasis you should probably ask you doc first. You truly won't get a "chemical burn " from it, LOL. Anyway, I hope this helps.
469720 tn?1388149949 Unfortunately, sometimes referring physicians actually feed into this process by telling patients that they need a treatment or surgery without the referring physician necessarily understanding the nuances of the decision making process. The patient shows up saying " I trust my doctor and he said that I need this procedure" One major benefit of the Cleveland Clinic physician compensation model is that all physicians are employed and not compensated on a per case productivity scale.

Medical research shows that the most effective treatment plan involves using a combination of therapies to treat the skin and making lifestyle changes(prevention of triggers and application of lots of moisturizers) to control flare-ups. Doing so tends to increase effectiveness and reduce side effects from medications.
Avatar f tn My son (14) has a IGE level of 33,000 - he has severe eczema, asthma and many allergies. We did have a specialist examine him for Hyper IGE (Jobs syndrome), which he does not have. Is there any other disease that would carry such a high IGE level, or can this just be severe allergies???
Avatar n tn I have been to 7 doctors including a dermo from the mayo clinic. He seems to want to overlook the fact that I have skin lesions and is trying to tell me that I have a pinched nerve. In the 3 years I have had this I have tried nearly everyting. Hydrocortizone, several other steroid creams, anti fungle pills, antifungle creams, imiquimod, antivirals, antibiotics. I'm running out of hope and don't want to have to live with the itching anymore.
Avatar n tn This causes weakness, pain, and a wide variety of sensory disturbances (as you have described). The treatment for this condition is less than optimal. Treatment is generally not durable (has to be repeated on a chronic basis) and does not reverse many symptoms, but rather prevents further progression. Some sucess has been found with combining 2 treatments at once.
1132574 tn?1271676066 Is eczema considered an auto-immune disease too? I was once told the eczema and psoriasis were like cousins. So I think it might be... If so, it may be that it is impacting your ANA. I know the derm and rhumie both said that the ANA can pick up psoriasis. Have you been diagnosed yet or are you still in limbo? It is quite a puzzle.
Avatar n tn i keep on reading that syptoms for hepitatis are on the eyes tongue lips on the body and liver thats why i ask !!!! am i wrong for the tongue i had oral sex without condom and i came in her mouth and i did oral sex on her ..........we had protected sex ........she did an hiv test came out negative and on my tongue i find two small balls no colour on each side of left and right in the same place and i fear its hepatatis from the oral sex i gave her ???? what do you think?
Avatar n tn Also, I much prefer diflucan orally for treatment of yeast. Many of the topical prepartations lead to chronic dermatitis which then need to be treated with steroids. That brings up one more thought, which is have you had biopsy done of the vulvar skin? There are other chronic conditions like lichen sclerosis or eczema or Bechet's that can be diagnosed with biopsy and treated with topical anti-inflammatory agents like Clobetasole.
Avatar n tn My mother has Sjogren's and is doing Dr. Jernigan's treatment... the same treatment that I'm on ! Like me, she's also having some herxing symptoms and slowly making progress. http://www.mayoclinic.

Avatar m tn If you have doubts about this person, you should consider obtaining a second opinion. Secondly, I suggest you visit the Mayo Clinic web-site on Food Allergy: The following information is excerpted from a leading Allergy Text Book. The information may be of interest to you, may answer other questions you have and may prompt you to ask questions that previously may not have occurred to you.
Avatar f tn He did not develop the heart complications and had early treatment. However since then his feet have continued to peel and overgrow skin in a cycle. the doctor said just to moisturise. Sometimes it is painful because the skin on his feet cracks. i feel sure it is to do with the kawasaki because it is similar to what happened during and just after the onset of the disease when is hands and feet swelled up.
Avatar m tn Early detection is key to successful treatment of Lyme. However, following a strict, natural treatment regimen can offer extensive benefits at any stage of the disease.
Avatar f tn Stuff like mastocytosis/MCAD or even something less exotic like eczema could be another consideration. I have eczema, and have problems during flare-ups of the eczema on my hands with the skin "tearing" easily (not sure if I should call it tearing or cracking ... guess it depends on what I'm doing when it happens more than anything ... but it definitely weakens the skin and it will split open and bleed).
Avatar f tn If I remember right, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum said in his book, "From Fatigued to Fantastic" that one out of every six of his patients (CFS & fibro) have parasites. The treatment protocol that I'm doing has formulas for yeast and parasites. I didn't notice any herxing (detoxing) symptoms with the parasite formula, but the yeast formula gave me severe herxing symptoms.
Avatar n tn Its Eczema, otherwise know an Dermatitis.

Avatar m tn • I have a rash on my lower legs and forearms that’ seems to come and go. (Possibly Eczema) • I periodically have blood at the end of my stools. Maybe once every few months or so but it is more blood than you would from just cleaning yourself to hard. • I have an increased sensitivity to motion sickness. Even just driving will make me feel light headed and woozy. • I also tend to shake. My hands literally shake all the time.
Avatar m tn If you are near a world class tertiary treatment center such as the Mayo Clinic you might want to be evaluated there. As for "the state of health care today" if you live in the USA be thankful. Read some of the many posts from patients in Canada and England that are waiting months to up to a year to see even one specialist and may of the tests you have done cannot be obtained there. The cancer survival rate for breast cancer in the USA and the detection is the best in the world.
Avatar f tn Hey you all... I too still have some of the same problems like the peeling lips, swollen lips for about 2 yrs. After doing some strenuous research on the Internet, it seems to me that everyone is experiencing lip eczema. So here's what I found. "Eczema is a Greek word and means " to boil over". It is where skin is inflamed, red, and sore. The skin cracks easily.
Avatar f tn Joe, I hope your numbers are good. I get winded pretty easily. I was running before I started treatment but I had to stop because I sounded like an asthmatic oompa loompa.
Avatar n tn I've taken almost ever antibiotic imaginable. I've been to BOTH mayo clinics. They even put me on a leperacy medication. My face bears ugly scars from how many times doctors have taken a knife and cut deep biopsies off my face only to shake their head and say they have no idea. What I have mirrors impetigo 100%, however it is not impetigo because impetigo is something that goes away in a week after a course of antibiotics. I've given up on doctors.
Avatar f tn Then was switched to Levothyroxine... now this is when I think the Eczema as it's called for me started. I itched like crazy mostly on the shins however, it would move around, disappear and reappear. Over the last 7 years the Eczema is worse, and other symptoms seem to be getting worse. After reading each post on here I realized my Thyroid is probably out of wack and I need a good Endo. I live in Colorado - let me know if you have a recommendation. For the Eczema: Tried clobestral (spelling?
