Skin layers

Common Questions and Answers about Skin layers


Avatar n tn Symptoms can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin. During the day, hydrate and protect hands from sun damage with a protective and moisturizing cream. At night, repair them with creams formulated from glycolic acid—a must for improving skin texture and tone. For a more intensive nighttime treatment, apply cream and then cover hands with gloves or socks.
Avatar n tn Also, procedures such as micro dermabrasion and chemical peels only remove thin layers of skin. Laser resurfacing uses a laser to treat deep layers of skin. The procedure is performed in an outpatient facility or, at times, in a hospital. An individual might receive general anesthesia for treatment of deeper layers of the face, and recovery time can take from a few minutes to a few hours. The doctor moves the laser over the area that requires treatment.
Avatar m tn hi, i was wondering if the skin inside your mouth will always recover/ grow back to its original surface? like if they get scraped off by a toothbrush while brushing, or by a strong mouthwash...etc i know losing a layer or two may not make a difference but what if its like 5 or 6 layers (felt like 5 or 6 layers anyway) gets scraped off at once? will it grow back like its original or remain that scaped off state forever?

But I saw a video which has many layers done two layers for uterus, 1 layer for internal skin peri.. something and again one for internal flesh and 1 for skin finally. According that if I count there are 5 layrrs of suture done. What is the correct way of c section. Thank you.
Avatar f tn You are fine to use it. It does not penetrate all the way into the skin. It stays on The top layers.
Avatar n tn The vet said to just keep it clean or we could have a skin graft. Is there anything special I can do besides the skin graft to help her heal properly. I am thinking this happened because the vet had the stitches atop one another on both layers, causing the top outer most layer to not have as good of a healing base.
Avatar f tn Mange is a disease of mange mites that affects the top layers of the skin. The insects live part of their lifecycles in the hair follicles and in the top layers of the skin in burrows. The most common kinds in dogs and cats are demodex and scabies. Scabies cause extreme itching and can be transmitted. Demodex mites are not contagious, usually. Both mites can be normal inhabitants of the skin in very low numbers. They don't cause problems unless they are in very high numbers.
Avatar f tn In the hands of a skilled person, the procedures are generally safe. But there are lots of unqualified people wielding needles so you have to be careful of that. You have to remember that if it doesn't turn out how you want it, you could be walking around with someones mistake, unhappy. Permanent makeup is similar to tattoos. It involves using a needle to place pigmented granules beneath the upper layers of the skin.
Avatar f tn t have the patience to continue, and they would sort of turn red, a little irritated, and I would pick at them (bad, I know), and they would lose their top layers of skin but then grow back. Recently I decided that i've had enough so I started applying DuoFilm, which initially the skin turned white and I removed the top layers etc, except after a few days, some spots of red turned up, like dry blood. Now i'm starting to think that maybe they're not even warts afterall....

Avatar f tn Absolutely not. Your skin has SEVERALLLLL layers, including layers of fat, then the burn would have to go through your uterus and some magical way through the amniotic fluid. As long as you don't get stabbed or punched in the stomach I wouldn't worry about anything lol.
Avatar n tn It is due to excessive accumulation of keratin in the outer layers of the skin. Thickening of the skin protects it against rubbing, pressure and irritation. The majority of the forms of hyperkeratosis are painless. Although hyperkeratosis may occur anywhere on the skin, there are several areas that are typically involved. Treatment of hyperkeratosis depends on the type, location, severity and cause. Most treatments are aimed at softening the keratin and removing the thickened skin.
Avatar f tn After so long my skin became paper thin and any side to side motion will tear the layers leaving horrible blood spots under the skin. It also tears so easy! My arms look like I'm 80 years old! It doesn't help that I suffer from low protein from mal-absorption due to gastric bypass 10 years ago. A dermatologist a couple of years ago put me on huge amounts of vitamin C and Lac lotion to no avail. He biopsied my skin and found the layers to be paper thin with weak collagen.
Avatar f tn s a all-day process but also I put on my head regrowth treatment to get the dry dry layers of scalp hair off that would grow back into my skin so it was like I was creating barriers and layers hard hard cover.
Avatar f tn quit smoking cigarettes. the nicotine can affect your body temperature. When you are cold, drink cool/cold liquids and bundle up. invest in heating blankets or heating pads. They sell ones that heat up in microwave and ones that plug into the wall. I would get another test to see if you test positive for lyme disease still. Best of luck.
Avatar m tn Now i am missing a few layers (like 5) of skin on my penis and it really hurts. What can i do!!?
Avatar n tn Blisters are usually caused by injury to the skin from heat or from friction, which create a tear between the epidermis—the upper layer of the skin—and the layers beneath. When this happens, the surface of the skin remains intact, but is pushed outwards as serum seeps into the newly created space between the layers. Short periods of intense rubbing can cause a blister, but any rubbing of the skin at all can cause a blister if it is continued for long enough.
Avatar m tn s cannot go through layers of clothing. Genital to genital or skin to skin contact (depending on the std).

Avatar f tn So I have had dry skin all my life. But since I've been pregnant it is so much worse. No matter how much lotion I put on it doesn't help! Any suggestions?

Avatar f tn sliced 2-4 layers of skin off my finger by a deli meat slicer when i put new dressings on it,it still bleeds
