Avatar f tn I went and saw the dermatologist yesterday and she advised me to use Dermatop twice a day and that it was a skin irritation. Now my question, since I have started to use Dermatop my skin has become itchy and the redness has increased... is this normal? Does dermatop work this way and if so, how long till I see results? Thank you very much.
Avatar f tn Simple daily routines like bathing, applying soaps and scrubbing yourself dry can decrease the moisture in the skin. You will have to choose a moisturizer suitable for your skin and apply it 2-3 times in a day. Also AC and heating depletes the skin of moisture, so if you stay for long hours in AC or heaters you should use a humidifier too. Use warm water and a mild soap for bathing. Petrolleum jelly used at night along with glycerine can help keep the skin supple and moist.
Avatar n tn It may be something else entirely, but, sometimes skin becomes: - sensitized to detergent residue (re-wash linen a second time but without any detergent or other additives, to rinse out the residue); - as winter approaches, indoor home air becomes dry, tending to irritate skin that's dry (of skin oils), which can lead to progressively worsening itching.
Avatar m tn is 3 or 4 flat round circles that itch from time to time but dont sting and nothing oozes out but when i scratch them, skin seems to come off like it is dead skin or something and then sometimes if i scratch too much it will bleed a tiny bit.

Avatar n tn That could be a skin irritation from dye or your underwear rubbing. It can also be the toliet tissue you use. Sometimes the perfume or dyes in it can do the same thing. If you wear thongs, that can definitely rub. When you have your period and you wear pads, you are putting something sterile between you and the underwear. It can also be that wiping with dry toilet tissue is not cleaning the crevices totally and it irritates your skin.
Avatar n tn Secondly, It can be due to STD’s like Chlamydia or thrush(red,sore,itchy vagina along with pain during sex and slight increase in the vaginal discharge may be present), Gonorrhea(Itchy, red, or swollen vagina and Pain during intercourse, urinating or abdominal pain may be present),Trichomoniasis(red, very itchy vagina along with greenish, frothy discharge is present) or Lichen sclerosis which is a non-infectious inflammatory skin disorder which affects the vulval and perianal skin(Symptoms inc
Avatar m tn aswell as the same type of stuff under the head(its like a ring in the deepest part of the skin folds when unerect between the bottom of the head and circumcision scar)... The stuff on the underside of the shaft cleared up within 3 1/2 days... Also upon closer examination the skin between the head and the circumcision line seems to have like tiny vains all over.. Not like the ones that carry blood in your body but like tiny red threadlike vains everywhere...
Avatar m tn First off I have no reason to believe I have an STD be that as it may I have an irritation around the head of my penis and a burning sensation along the seam of my penis there seems to be a white spot looking like dead skin that hurts as well could it be a male yeast infection or what am I looking at I want to have sex again
Avatar f tn My skin has been irritated for about a week down there...this has happened before no bumps no sores so I'm kind of confused as to what it could be!can herpes just cause irritation with no bumps or sores?
Avatar m tn Sometimes sex or masturbation causes irritation on the skin. Don't have sex or masturbate for a week. if it keeps up consult a doctor.
Avatar n tn hi, My dad has had his diabetes contition well under controlll for over 13 years now. recently he has developed a skin irritation which is very itchy. Cld anyone advice what this is and how to alleviate the problem.
Avatar n tn The skin is shiny and smooth, almost like a burn, but painless. It does not itch, even though the skin is peeling. I believe that the cause f the irritation came from the fact that immediately prior to intercourse, my girl friend removed a tampon that she used that day, though her flow was light. We also used a water based lubricant during sex. My question is, could the combination of lube with the remnants of chemicals present on the tampon have cause a chemical burn of irritation?
Avatar m tn I have had this skin irritation for 2 days. It first appeared on my 2 arms with itchy small red spots. I took Benadryl and it did not resolve the problem. The day after, it moved from my arms to the back, lower back, legs, and along 2 neck lines. It is still very itchy! What products would help resolve this problem?
Avatar f tn Your issue sounds like dry skin. Very common as the penis skin is thin and sensitive. Try a mild perfume free soap and try warm water in the shower. Hot water will dry skin quickly. Also try some lotion. No scented lotion. Something mild for dry skin. Soaps can strip the skin of essential oils. This is all normal and nothing to worry about.
