Itchy skin cures

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy skin cures


Avatar m tn My GI doctor advised me to use Aquaphor ointment (over the counter) for itchy skin. It is a really thick icky stuff that you put on after showering, and then cover up (so you don't get grease on your furniture). It sounds awful, but it really really makes my skin feel better for a while. Once a week that really helps, but be prepared, it is kind of icky, like vaseline...

Avatar n tn ve found is a topical solution of 97% rubbing alcohol with a cotton ball, twice daily to kill the bacteria. Follow this with a mild moisturizer so that your skin does not dry out. If the symptoms are really bad, do the treatment 3 times a day. The problem never actually goes away as it is systemic (whole body) and the bumps are but just one sign, but the treatment keeps it under control and your skin will have less redness and bumps afterwards.
Avatar n tn I read that dabbing itchy legs with neat Dettol once a day cures the problem. And so it has for me. It makes sense. Bacteria breeds in patches on warm damp skin, and makes it itch. Scratching carries the infection - as do tights, socks, the contents of jars of unguents kept in warm bathrooms. Maintain scrupulous hygeine - boil your tights or replace! - and both the rash and the itch disappears. .
Avatar n tn Hi, Vitiligo is a condition in which your skin loses melanin. This occurs when the cells that produce melanin die or no longer form melanin causing slowly enlarging white patches of irregular shapes to appear on the skin. However, there is no cure for vitiligo. The goal of treatment is to stop or slow the progression of pigment loss. Using sunscreen and applying cosmetic camouflage cream may help improve the appearance of the skin.
Avatar n tn Every spring for the past three years, a skin rash has appeared on my shins, starting with my left leg, eventually moving to my right leg and minimally on my forearms. The rash consists of small red bumps that look similar to acne, it is extremely itchy, then is blisters and pops (whether I itch it or not) leaving a scab. It does not spread to any other areas of my body, my spouse and children don't catch it from me and it is not in my underarms or genitalia.
Avatar n tn About three months ago I started getting an itchy groin. Nothing severe, just chalked it up to summertime sweating. Fast forward to now and it's uncontrollable. So severe I can't even sleep. Both my urologist and dermatologist ruled out "jock itch" and basically said it's probably from sweating or general moisture. I have NO rash or redness. The doctors cure? Just use some jock itch spray or maybe some cortisone. They both dismissed it like it's nothing.
Avatar f tn I have had for the last year on an off an acne like skin rash on my neck both sides and on the jaw line. It comes and goes can be itchy and red and makes my skin feel rough even when its not visible. Does anyone else have these experiences and are there any cures or creams or is that the way it is now as I can not stop taking the thyroide medication and when I stop selenium and iodine I get very tired and my hair goes very thin and brittle. Any ideas anyone?
Avatar m tn Besides the jock itch, I feel like the skin around my anus is sometimes crawling, tingling, or itchy, maybe wet but when I feel it, it's not. I have had three series of STD/STI test and tested negetive for everything including a blood test for HIV, Herpies 1&2, Hepetitis, ect. I'm currently being treated by a Urologist P.A. with Alfuzosin and Uroblue? some medicine that turns my urine blue-ish. This is for an irritation in the urethra and sometimes at the tip.
Avatar n tn I am an 18 year old female and have had a semi non itchy red rash on my chest, upper back and upper arms for about 2 years. The rest of my skin is smooth and clear and my doctor prescribed me Westin cream and it was not effective. I have changed soaps, lotions, luandry detergent and clothing and none of those elements seem to be the problem. It gets better at times and worsens at others but never fully goes away. It started on my arms, then went to my chest, then my back.
Avatar m tn I first started having small, clear, itchy blisters on my hands/ around my fingers and then they spread to my feet. They small under the skin at first and then seem to band together and get bigger and bigger. Ultimately, they got so big on my feet that I couldn't work for 3 weeks and they were protruding out from my feet about an inch. It was the most horrific experience ever. I was put on Prednisone and every other cream out there for this problem.
Avatar f tn In both the cases antibodies are made against skin appendages. This causes inflammatory reaction in skin and scalp. Taking care of one should to some extent help in the other disease. You need to find a mix and match of medications like steroids and plaquenil, using anti-allergic pills, skin soothing lotions containing menthol and calamine and cool compress. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.

It started on my eyelids, and the doctor prescribed me a cortisone cream, but the problem is recurring to this day. Then 4 years ago, i developed a skin rash in my groin area around my testicles and on the inner thighs and around the anus. then this year, the problem has spread to my lower stomach, underneath the elbows, and the sides of my neck.

Avatar f tn Hello, Treatment options for vitiligo include steroids,psoralen photochemotherapy(PUVA),depigmentation and surgical therapy like skin grafting,micropigmentation or tattooing and autologous melanocyte transplants.However the choice of therapy depends on the number of white patches; their location, sizes, and how widespread they are and the option that is convenient to you.I would suggest you to discuss these options with a dermatologist.
Avatar n tn I have redness and pain, though not balantitis. Do not overuse over counter or pres cream, heard can thin skin, so use caution do not use for many days.
Avatar m tn I had thought it strange that the itchiest parts were right where the back of the rivet on the button of my jeans where it hit my skin was the itchiest. The metal contains nickle and was irritating my skin. This condition finally spread throughout my body and after seeing several dermatologists, the one I last saw at the Mayo Clinic performed the allergy patch testing. Finally, a determination of what was making me break out in a rash.
