New skin ointment

Common Questions and Answers about New skin ointment


Avatar n tn I'd like to hear from anyone about the dryness of the skin. My skin looks 20 years older if not more. I'm thinking of soaking in baby oil. Of course I am drinking A LOT of water. Just curious as to what others may be doing. Especially, women.
Avatar n tn Six weeks ago, I saw my dermatologist for flaky skin on my face, and he prescribed Elidell, to be used in conjunction with a prescribed hydrocortisone cream (2.5%). I also told him that on a few occasions, I had felt chapped between my legs, under my scrotum, after golfing, but presently was feeling fine. My Doctor said I could use the same treatment for both conditions. The first day I used both creams as directed on my face, and hydrocortisone cream only between legs and felt normal.
Avatar m tn There have also been what appears to be bumps under the skin. This has been only recently, and I have been with the same partner for the past few months, who is STD-free. Is it possible I could be seeing symptoms from being withs someone else that are only appearing now? Or could this be something different than an STD?
Avatar n tn Hello, The lesion that you have described sounds like a scar with post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The treatment for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.Apply hydroquinone cream on this scar and it should go away in a few days to months.If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion.
Avatar n tn Does anyone else have problems with dry skin around the eyes? My eyelids are red, sore, and itchy. I have tried benedryl, lotions and antibiotic ointments. Nothing seems to work. Between the red eyes, my pale skin, and my loss of hair I look very unhealthy right now. My family was very concerned when they saw me on Thanksgiving Day. Also, my scalp continues to itch and flake like crazy regardless of how many dandruff shampoos I have tried. I am a fright! Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with fibroyalgia and am learning to deal with the pain through medication... but, a new problem has come up with my skin. Does anyone else have any skin problems with their fibromyalgia or maybe this is just unrelated?
Avatar f tn I thought it was a pimple behind my ear, but a couple of days later it spread to my hair line from ear to ear. Thought it might be dry skin so I bought new shampoo & conditioner...couple days I have a rash on my back & chest...its not flaky skin or red and it dont itch too bad...its just a bunch of bumps running from my scalp to to my back and on my chest... What could it be??
Avatar f tn I don't know what cause it, but I have rashes in my neck, stomach, arms it started 3 weeks ago. I tried using hydrocortison ointment no help. The rashes comes and goes.Is there something I can use OT that will get rid of the rashes? Can this cause by prenatal vitamins? Or Birth Control pills which I've been taking for so many yrs. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/240758'>Very itchy, red rash spreading from abdomen to arms, legs, neck and face...</a>.
Avatar m tn One doctor thought it was Scabies but what he tried to treat it with (which was an ointment) didn't work at all. He itches everyday, all day and he's had it with all the Doctors. They look like mosquito bites and they very in size. They are all over his body, in between his fingers, back, legs, arms, pretty much everywhere. NOTHING seems to be taking them away. Help please?
Avatar n tn Went back and was presribed Oral Fluconazole 150mg, for four days, along with Fluconazole ointment. Now, my rash has gotten much worse, much more redness, much more raised and at times very itchy. Is this typical, should I continue with the Fluconazole? I heavily suspect I have systemic yeast to some extent. My tongue was white, but after taking Fluconazole it's almost gone. No other side effects observed, no additonal rashes anywhere, no other new symptoms.
Avatar f tn Is my natural brown skin color going to come back? At the moment I'm using Clobetasol Propionate Ointment USP, 0.05% on the affected area which is my chin. I'm afraid to try new products cause I don't know what's the outcome of it. Write back ASAP. Thanks.
Avatar m tn as the 3rd layer of skin began to peel ,my wife noticed one knee peeling or actually encapsulated in a whitish skin, I peeled this off the way you would do a bandage, underneath was new skin. as days gone by the other knee has a very small area beginning to dry and peel. Im someone who never gets sick. I never have any issues. now at 48 this begins...I have seen my doctor, he said that it may be psoriasis, he really doesn't think so because of the lack of blood at the peel area's...
Avatar m tn Be sure to wear sunscreen to prevent discoloration of that new skin. There are over the counter scar treatments (such as Mederma) which can help lessen the appearance of a scar. You could try that as well (follow the instructions on the box). Another option is vitamin E, which can help keep the skin soft and promote healing. Other than these options, you just have to wait and give it time. If you are concerned about the appearance of the skin, you may want to see a dermatologist.
Avatar f tn Just be sure not to exceed the recommended daily dosage, as it can be toxic. Any new skin regimen you try should be given at least six weeks, especially given the severity of your acne. A mild cleanser (such as Neutrogena's grapefruit acne wash), a alcohol-free toner (such as Boots, Neutrogena, or the Body Shop), and a quality facial moisturizer (such as Boots, the Body Shop, Olay, Aveeno) should be used day and night. Rinse your face with cold water to reduce redness and inflammation.
Avatar n tn Viral load back up to 350,000. So going to C Doc after Columbus Day week-end and will discuss new choices. Incivik or Victrelis. I guess NIC is shorter tx and have had excellent results. Worse sides than VIC. Anyone out there tried either one and what was it like. Want to make right decision on tx. The only sides I had on Peg & Riba was fatigue for the whole 48 weeks and slightly itchy skin. What should I expect from either treatment?
1293913 tn?1272344842 This will be a three part question regarding relatively new skin conditions I have been experiencing. 1) I will get these red spots that will randomly appear on my face. They are about the size of a dime and are very red with a large white center much like a mesquito bite. The redness tends to go away within a day and leaves a pimple size bump with a very tiny white head much smaller than that of a normal pimple.
Avatar f tn the products are so natural that I use them not only on myself but on my 2 year old daughter and I recommend for new borns too! it is all natural making it healthier for yours and your baby's skin, even healthier and more recommended than JOHNSONS AND JOHNSONS baby lotion and soaps. hope it helps and if you need any more information on it inbox me!!
Avatar m tn Usually If i scratch my skin the skin inflammates at these places - my skin is like that from childhood. I had a history of skin troubles from childhood, like white flaky skin on cheeks and warts, but they had been cured before.
1510461 tn?1290080520 5% I know she isnt putting her head into anything as we have a big slabbed area for her with nothing there, I think its going to be a difficult one but i will try the things you have listed I do bath her neck in bakeing soda and water and dry it off and put tea tree on as i read this on the internet and it does help to sooth it, but its like she has a flare up every now and then, she doesnt go into any grass or feilds only on hard standing, We have also bought new beds on numourus accassions
Avatar n tn Hi - I was wondering if anyone else experiences skin problems. I have terrible itching from time and time and sores that break out on my upper arms and at my wrists. Very frustrating. FYI, I have Hep C, geno 1, grade 3 liver damage. Tried Peg-interferon (wish I wouldn't have) and am now on Dr. Zhang's (out of New York) herbal regime. I have had Hep C about 30 years and feel very good overall. The primary side effect for my is fatigue, but not to a dysfunctional degree.
Avatar n tn Another substitute for Elocon is Cutivate Lotion. If you like being your own skin detective, here's an excellent skin site with lots of pictures and a decent search engine: Just key in your symptons or hunt around. You might start with the usual suspects like Seborrhoeic Dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, scabs, etc.
Avatar f tn The area is red, raised about a millimeter, and the edges of the bump are harder than normal. I am worried about allergies to the ointment (I switched from the original ointment to Gold Bond Healing to Aveeno moisturizer to no avail), allergies to the ink (but when will the reaction stop? I took a bit of Benadryl one day and nothing happened), but what I found recently on the internet worries me most--cellulitis.
Avatar m tn Two years ago, the prescribing doctor had me using Renova .02% daily on fair skin for several months. When my skin felt tight (I had no clue this meant I was dehydrated but I didn't like the way it felt) I reduced my use down to 3 days a week for 6 months and then to 2 days for several months, finally down to 1 day a week. My skin looked great, until about 6 months ago when it started getting lots of crepey lines. My esthetician said this was caused by the dehydration.
Avatar n tn I am getting an extreem reaction after a nice soak in our new hot tub! My skin breaks out in little blisters that are terrible itchie! Is this what they call priclie heat? Someone suggested taking sulpher tablets as that would open the pores?
Avatar m tn I now have it bandaged with ichthammol ointment. I've never seen anything like this. The part sticking out looks like new skin, very pink and soft, and is definitely coming up out of the wound. Someone else suggested it might be a fungus. Can anyone help me with this? Is what I'm doing o.k.?
Avatar f tn I desperately need HELP! I have a horrible skin condition. My skin is sticky all over and there is a waxy sort of film. My hands and feet are the worst. It feels like soda or honey is coating my hands and feet, with a lighter feeling on the rest of my body. My socks stick to the bottoms of my feet. It is worse after showering, washing hands etc. I use a green kitchen scrubber on the palms of my hands and soles of my feet but it doesn't get the film off.
149918 tn?1208132344 Just be aware that oftentimes skin conditions mimic each other and even professionals sometimes have to biopsy the skin before making a definitive diagnosis. Also, this is a New Zealand site, and we may treat some of the same conditions differently here. Has your study nurse and/or doctor seen the rash lately, in it's current form? If not, you might want to make a special appointment and show it to them.
Avatar m tn I am 25 and have acne prone skin for over 10 years that has dramatically improved in the last 5 years. All of a sudden my ENTIRE body is breaking out, places I have never has acne. The only thing i have switched is using only the Neutrogena transparent soap on my skin and retin A in spots at night. Please let me know what I can do to help this.
Avatar f tn I have finally gotten the combination that brings lasting relief so your beautiful Westie can enjoy life free of skin irritation and you can stop worrying. I went through everything mentioned above plus! Skin infections, long term steriod use, playing with homemade meals and this kibble and that kibble, intense skin odors... It all came down to (@ first) A shampoo: Ketochlor. After the first shampoo...all sores and flaky patches gone. I couldn't believe it!!!
