Avatar f tn Too much soapy water, exposure to harsh chemicals, the normal aging process and certain types of skin diseases are some of the causes of decreased amounts of protective skin oils which in turn causes dry skin. The mainstay of management is liberal use of moisturizers after washing with luke warm water. Soap should be used minimally. Moisturizers should be reapplied liberally during the day.

Avatar f tn Its normal skin, patches have no edges for as far as I know but they are irregular in shape. Its at different places on my face like a patch of faded skin. I am on business in UK, with no access to health care. The paramedic did not let me see a doctor after the initial examination ... according to her its not a fungal infection but doesn't look like vitiligo "yet". How long does it take to spread? Is there a way to control if still nascent?

Avatar f tn It's been 2 weeks i have got very itchy bumps, small sized, without any puss or fluid in them, skintone colored, and gets pink only when I scratch. These bumps started with few on my neck and speaded all over my face rapidly within a week. I belong to city where there is no good dermatologist. I googled all the skin diseases but couldn't diagnose mine probably, is it a reaction of any bug bite, cosmetica acne, bad food Or something else?

I have lost some weight but am now gaining because i am eatling alot but the weight is not returning in my face or limbs.
Avatar f tn Over the past two weeks my fiancée and I have been noticing some small bumps on our skin their are located on our chest, back, thighs, and arms. They have become very itchy. We have one of our son's sleeping in our room in his bassinet next to our bed and he hasn't had any of these bumps show up anywhere on his body, but our three year old slept with us a few times and has a few on his forearm. Is it possible that we are all having an allergic reaction or could it be something else?
Avatar f tn ve been on Doxycycline for almost 6 weeks now and I did feel a little bit better for a while. However, I still have a couple of symptoms left -- one is this burning pain on my skin. I actually feel it on my tongue sometimes, too. It moves around; hard to explain but it feels almost like a freezer burn would feel. It comes & goes in intensity, and it moves around, but mostly affects my forearms and lower legs. It has not gotten any better since on treatment.

1805569 tn?1316138010 The lesion really sounds like a cutaneous histiocytoma. Cutaneous histiocytoma are benign dermal masses that occur commonly in younger dogs and will regress on it's own in 2 to 3 months. However, it would be best to have the lesion biopsied to be sure. The following description is from the Merck Veterinary Manual: "These comprise a group of poorly defined skin diseases all characterized by a proliferation of histiocytes (tissue macrophages) in the absence of any known stimulus.
Avatar m tn are they scaly or are the dry red rough patches and do the ever weep clear fluid or develop what look like small blisters if so you may have eczema or psorisis which both can not be cured the symptoms can only be managed so see if your parents can take you to see a dermatologist
Avatar n tn Hi, Xerosis is the medical term for dry skin. It can have many different causes such as too much sun, windburn, harsh soaps and cleansers, aging ,diet and insufficient water intake. You can start to fix your problem by drinking plenty of water.Also applying certain creams and moisturizers will help. Vitamin E enriched skin creams work to strengthen skin from the inside. YOur diet should include Evening Primrose oil, flaxseed oil or Omega 3 oils derived from fish.

Avatar f tn Acne during pregnancy is hormonal, which is good news, because once the hormones are regulated, this usually means that the skin will normalize. In the mean time however, there are other ways to treating skin diseases such as acne, other than topically. Adjusting your diet will help tremendously. during my trimester, i was having acne and whwn it started disturbing me, i took treatment http://www.fairviewcosmeticsurgery.
Avatar n tn Changes in skin color can result from outside causes. For example, skin diseases such as acne may leave dark spots after the condition clears. Other causes of dark spots are injuries to the skin, including some surgeries. Freckles are small brown spots that can appear anywhere on the body, but are most common on the face and arms. Freckles are an inherited characteristic." Source: http://www.aocd.org/skin/dermatologic_diseases/hyperpigmentation.
