Avatar f tn I just started to feed her baby food. She developed what I thought at first was cradle cap. But I don't know if it's just dry skin. It's not waxy, greasy, crusty, or yellow. It's just dry, flaky white skin. I just use shampoo but no conditioner. The dryness is just at the back of her head. I live in West Texas, the desert. Is it cradle cap or dry skin? Also, is severe generalized seborrheic dermatitis all over the body? And what is severe?
Avatar m tn For the last few years I have been dealing with dry skin only on my lower lip, it does not affect my upper lip at all. My lower lip will will dry and the skin will flake off. Or it can actually be peeled off if i use lip balm. I have been taking multi vitamins for atleast a year daily, with no change. I use lip balm daily just to hide it (Burts Bee's). I drink water like a guppy (4-5 cups a day). Im really at a loss here as I cant seem to figure out what could be causing it.
Avatar f tn Both can cause pimples, acne, dry skin and brittle hair. Hence get your thyroid profile done. For PCOS, you can get tests like 2 hr GTT, serum androgen and testosterone levels, LH-FSH ratio, prolactin levels, TSH levels,17-hydroxyprogesterone levels and 3D ultrasound uterus done. Secondly dandruff itself can cause clogging of pores and hence flaring up of acne. Try medicated shampoos for dandruff. There are a number of over-the-counter shampoos available that can help.
Avatar f tn Tea tree shampoo by paul mitchell works great, but you have to by it from a salon or a beauty supply store becuase they sell knock offs that dont have the same ingrediants that work at drugs store and convinent store! before you use try to sratch of as much dead skin as you can with a brush or something!
Avatar m tn i have the same thing - i'm in week 10 same dose as you. i remember my nurses saying dry skin was a sx of tx, so i have been very dilagent about moisturizing my face and body with a "heavier" lotion then i normally would use - but found i still had dry cracked skin in corners of my mouth. then i remembered somthing i used to use for my kids (recommended by our beach lifeguards) when they got really dry, crakced lips from the ocean.
Avatar f tn My fiance has very thick dry skin on the palms of his hands and the bottoms of his feet; it's like the whole palm or sole is callussed. I know it's genetic, almost everyone on that side of the family have it. What is it?
Avatar f tn The brush of my clothing hurts, and when I touch it I feel like it's raw. It is not red, nor is dry. My skin is quiet pale and I do have poor blood circulation. I have had many sunburns ones that lasted for weeks in pain. I have no idea whats wrong, but it does not stop hurting and I swear it feels worse now then an hour ago but that just could be because I have been feeling it for awhile. Please help.
Avatar n tn Hello, Itchy skin that isn't accompanied by other obvious skin changes, such as a rash, is most often caused by dry skin (xerosis). Skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, fungal infections and hives, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders, diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals, wool, soaps, cosmetics and certain foods can cause itchy skin. You can apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctors with all kinds of symptoms. Dry eyes and blepharitis is what has been diagnosed. But it seems that there is no cure for either of these. I am in my 20's and all of a sudden I now have 2 incurable diseases. Does this mean I will have it for life? They get sore, itchy, red and irritated especially at night. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I soak my feet in a hydrogen peroxide and water mix then use a scrub type brush to slough of the dead skin. There is a product that was originally for cows udders (go ahead and laugh) called bag balm. It works wonders and is a thick cream not a watered down hand cream. Gotta wear my sandals, flip flops and go barefoot in the summer.
Avatar n tn Don't shower or bathe too much for the same reason, you body isn't putting out much natural oils and bathing will dry your skin. Don't use very hot water. Warm is much better. And three times a week will usually be enough. I used Olay body wash with shea butter and used a brush to reach the middle of my back because it would get itchy where I couldn't reach. You may need help to get the lotion to those areas. Well, I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Helped some but still achy, horrible dry mouth. Dry skin, dry eyes. Drink contantly, used all kinds of things for dry mouth. I feel like they are under treating the thyroid. An endo. told me dry mouth was not a symptom. How come it's listed all as one all over the internet? I am going to try a thyroid supplement. Hope you find a solution soon. You're not alone.
Avatar n tn The area is about half a centimeter across, feels dry and a bit numb, similar to when I have some dry skin built up, but no dead skin comes off if I rub it, and the skin is thin and tender. I haven't tried to stretch the skin (as sk00 did). The color is not unusual. I'd been thinking I'd leave it for a few days to see if it would shrink. Would you consider it to be more urgent that I see a dermatologist about this?
Avatar f tn I had my thyroid removed 2 years ago because of cancer. I am experiencing dry skin all over and I get an itchy burning sensation around my nose. As trival as this sounds after what I've dealt with for the last two years, the itchy burning around my nose gets very uncomfortable, it drives me nuts to be blunt. This has been going on for about 3 months. I was wondering if this was a problem with my Synthoid or simply menopause.
Avatar n tn Hello. I am 18 years old, and just graduated high school. I have had skin problems for as long as I can remember. They have hindered my confidence since grade school and continue to today. I try to hide my arms and avoid any contact with people because of the small red bumps that cover most of my upper arms; friends have suggested that it may be eczema. On my face, I only have slight acne. I break out occasionally, but it has progressively gotten worse.
Avatar n tn Hi. I have a question? Has everyone's hair grown back beautifully? I still am having issues with that. It's getting better, but still "broken off & flyaway" -which, again, I always had extremeley beautiful wavy but not frizzy hair (not trying in any way to be conceited - honest - we all have at least one thing that stands out in a good way on us, & mine was my "Leo-the lion mane").
Avatar n tn what's going on what should i do the doctor perscribe me with a fungas cream It relieved the itch sometimes but i felted the cream was'nt working so I just used my palmers skin success with coca butter and vitamin e but this isn't doing anything for my skin either I already have a dry skin problem alway's did and alway's used a coco butter lotion what should i do now.....
Avatar f tn An aunt of mine is on steroids for her bronchial tubes and over time they have thinned her skin really badly. She only has to brush past something and the chances are her skin will tear. I am unsure of the actual meds that can do this as a side effect but if you post a list of his meds I will look into this for you. Has your son never been evaluated by an endocrinologist? If not then maybe try and get him evaluated by one and have him do a full hormone panel.
Avatar n tn Rosacea is a medical condition presenting with redness, swelling, discoloration and sometimes pimples and dry skin over the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. The exact cause of rosacea is not known. The basic process seems to involve dilation of the small blood vessels of the face. To confirm the diagnosis get an examination done from a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Check with your physician first to be sure there won’t be any drug interactions. Brush Your Teeth Dry mouth can lead to cavities because it can harm tooth enamel, warned Joseph S. Levy, DMD, a Manhattan dentist, so it’s important to take good care of your teeth. If you have problems with dexterity, try the toothbrush recommended by Rumeena Reshad, Dr. Levy’s dental hygienist, G-U-M Summit Sensitive/Ultrasuave, which has an easy-to-hold handle.
Avatar f tn they said it was from coffee and letting toothpaste get on my chin while brushing. I brush with hot water and this was irritating my skin mixed with the toothpaste. I have to admit I am a messy brusher, I brush in the shower so this was making my problem worse. Something about the heat because they said lay off the coffee too. I got this cream called Metronidazole. Gone! Thank God! Not really sure what the coffee was doing. It's not like I was drinking it and letting it run down my chin???
Avatar n tn I noticed some skin peeling on the inside of my mouth, inner cheeks, but close to the opening of my mouth, its hard to see, but I can bite bits of the skin off. Its on both sides of my mouth just inside, starting not too far from the corners of my mouth. Don't notice any bleeding. I feel fine overall. I did notice a spot on my upper gum that looked like a bit of skin, but when I gentling brushed the area while cleaning my teeth, it came off. No pain with any of this either.
Avatar m tn Hi Thanks for the reply but this is not a mouth problem its all over my skin my fingers head and general secreation through the skin , with slight dry mouth . I will be going to see Doctor A.S.A.
Avatar f tn My two-year old has eczema and her pediatrician believes it is directly related to her dry, itchy scalp. She is constantly (vigorously) scratching her scalp (even immediately after washes). Her ped recommending using Selsun Blue no more than twice/week. I use Selsun Blue naturals and find that her scalp is still dry and itchy if I only wash it twice/week. It's better if I do it daily. However, she is African American and I'm afraid that the daily washes will dry her hair.
Avatar n tn Hi, i have VERY dry skin. Its so dry that after a getting wet i can feel my skin tighten. I have to use my hands to scrub the dead skin off my face at least one a week. Shaving doesnt even help get all the dead skin off. I saw on this one program they had some brush they used to remove dead skin on the forehead and face( was a small flat metal handle with short bristles). Ive tried to find dead skin removal brushes but most things are chemical peels. I dont want those.
Avatar n tn When I excercise and sweat they feel quite hot and a little burning. Can you please give me an idea what this could be? I have now started to dry brush my skin towards my heart in hope that I can help,if it is toxins, to get out of my skin. But I have now had this for many months and I am very concerned. This discussion is related to <a href=''>Skin Rash on arms</a>.
377493 tn?1356505749 The infection went away, but his skin started to move in a rolling motion. I thought it was fleas or dry skin. His back had a lot of dandruff and the skin rolled. Especially at night, he would suddenly bite his back and tail then ran like someone was chasing him. I was very worried about that and took him to see the vet multiple times. The doctor said he might have injured his back, or he might have allergy or fleas.
