Walking dandruff in humans

Common Questions and Answers about Walking dandruff in humans


Avatar n tn My daughter rescued a puppy and we believe it has walking dandruff...Me and my daughter are broken out in an itchy rash...Is there a natural treatment that will get rid of this on us?
Avatar n tn This happens without doing strenuous exercise by the way, and there is no sweat dripping in my face, but I have noticed that the region gets humid often, while walking for example. Also, if my sweat is overly salty, how come there are only deposits there? My first concern is that it doesn't look too good. But I suppose it might also indicate some underlying salt related problem. Maybe I'm not evacuating it enough?
Avatar n tn Have a vet do a skin scraping of the bald spots to make sure it's not mange. If it's mange, the mite that causes it will show up on the microscope slide and the appropriate treatment can be instituted. You want to have this done as soon as possible, since some types of mange can be transmitted to humans. Demodectic mange is caused by a mite found in the skin of all dogs. Sometimes the mites begin localized infestations and that's when hair loss results.
Avatar f tn As Dr. Smith recommends, you need to contact your physician about treatment options in humans; as in dogs, some people are more sensitive to the bites. I would also recommend that all mammals in the household be treated with a more reliable insecticide for cheyletiella, such as Revolution, ivermectin, or Frontline spray, as I have had less success with Frontline Spot on. I usually will treat every 2 weeks for 4 treatments, as well as continue environmental control.
Avatar n tn After the itch settles down you could regularly use a moisturizer with sun-screen and keep your face hydrated. Also drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day helps in keeping facial skin healthy.
139792 tn?1498589250 i would add that effect ot trauma can be nullified if we learn to witness the traumatic event in the reverse form.I.e in you are insulted by somebody, visualize that you were apriciated.. Of cource this will be faking. Fake it till you make it. that should be the sloggan.In this way one can reduce the effect of trauatic events and be from the past garbage. Similarly all the failures should be turned into successful.Here also faking is used to vonvert the failures into cuccess.
Avatar n tn When I worked in a cube where lots of people were constantly walking by, I didn't pick my scalp as much. Now I'm in a cube in the corner and I was picking more, because no one could see me. I think its a nervous habit. I googled scalp sores and found several lotions and shampoos made for healing scalp sores. I just started using it today.
Avatar n tn The medical community has not diagnosed this problem. My theory is it is a zoonetic (disease that animals get and has occurred in humans) problem and is a smaller verion of the grub fly that cows get. Second theory is that it is from the biological control agents used in greenhouses that has lead to this problem. "Biological Controls" are organisms developed and sold to manage certain types of pests. The "white fly parasite" theoretically could be transferred to humans.
Avatar n tn Although some lactobacillus species help protect the vagina from certain infections (perhaps including yeast infection), the lactobacilli in dairy products(primarily L. acidophilus) do not colonize humans and have no protective effect.
Avatar n tn I feel them jumping around my ankles and feet when I'm walking in my apartment. I don't think they 'live' under my fingernails but when I scratch, they get caught under my nails & get on my hands. I thought maybe it was fleas but I don't have pets. Then I thought maybe it was bed bugs but when I checked the internet, I'm positive that I don't have those because I thoroughly checked my furniture & beds & saw no signs. I'm so freaked out about these bugs.
288415 tn?1231634102 I too was driving my husband NUTS itching without even realizing I was chronically and continually digging. I am so thankful mine have been in a calmer state since mistakenly getting dandruff shampoo in them. What a blessing!
Avatar m tn it took me months to figure it out, because when you get bitten all you will see is a black speck or a tiny white dot(which just looks like severly dry skin...in your hair will just look like dandruff) after examination IS NOT DRY SKIN/DANDRUFF@ALL!!! It flys when it gets older but, smaller one's crawl all over! It will move and kindof flop up when touched(if you can grab it BEFORE it gets into a pore or hair follicle)...
Avatar n tn I've tried tabs for restless leg symdrome but they made me tired and now I'm booked in for more blood tests. The feeling I get is like someone is walking over my grave but it's felt in the back of my hand. Drafts set it off too - I wear fingerless gloves at home and when sleeping. (Two on one hand as it's only my right hand). And if I still get it I flex my fingers out. I've also got heat treatment cream and ice treatment cream and a small tens machine.
1358341 tn?1282213443 And I am a vegetarian that eats fish and eggs. So that means FISH is safe for creatinine levels, at least in humans. My mother don't like me being vegetarian so I eat fish 2 to 6 days a week. So your cat can eat fish just like he eats chicken (unless you think fish is contaminated with mercury or other pollution). - But anyway I don't advise to change cat food habits often. I tried a slow transition on mine by mixing foods but it didn't work.
Avatar n tn If you can't get to the vet within an hour or so, put the sample in the fridge. There's no need to jump to the cancer conclusion just yet. In the meantime, don't feed a bunch of fatty foods. If you feed steak, cut off any excess fat. If your dog has a pancreas problem, fat can be deadly. Are there any other symptoms you've noticed? Increased or decreased water intake? Constipation or diarrhea? Bowel noises? Gas? Any observations will help your vet with a diagnosis.
Avatar n tn My son has to use several different dandruff shampoos in the shower, which could be contributing to his EK. I will encourage him to use gloves when shampooing. Also, is there anyone who is willing to post photos of their condition? Thanks.
Avatar n tn Since I was a teen, I have had these random sharp pains throughout various parts of my body that will occur in concentrated bursts of pain in a particular area for short periods of time. Sometimes pain will re-appear in the same area throughout the day and other times it will appear at seemingly unrelated part of my body. For example, it happened today and began with concentrated burst of pain half way up my inner left thigh.
948349 tn?1294383837 or places on their body that are much much less likely to get in contact with the sun??? Not only that, but acne is also most common in adolescents!!! Gotta have sufficient vitamin D levels to grow those bones and absorb sufficient amounts of calcium, and they really growing at that age. We are lacking sun!, We are wearing clothes! We are now wearing sunscreen because we're worried about skin cancer... We are a vitamin D deficient society! VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY IS THE CURE FOR ACNE!!!
Avatar n tn One doctor told him to use eye wipes that take away an oil residue. i found the wipes in the eyecare section in a pharmacy. i hope this will help it atleast alittle bit.
Avatar m tn By the end of that week I had tingling all over boxer short area The following week I had trouble walking due to the pain and tingling, this eventually turned into burning in the urethra and scrotum lasting two to three additional weeks. No noticeable blisters ever formed.I also suffered nerve like pain from buttock down back of right leg.
Avatar m tn A crawling sensation in skin is seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Very dry skin (you rule this out) and disorders of thyroid gland all can precipitate a crawling sensation. The other possibility is Morgellons disease often mimics scabies. The disease is believed to be caused by weak immune systems in people that have contracted the tick-borne Lyme Disease at some point in their life. It can also be a fungal infection like Tinea corporis.
Avatar n tn Within a few minutes of entering a room, people begin coughing and/or sneezing.(By the way, it's always 2 coughs in a row.) I am not sick at all but everyone around me becomes sick upon meeting me. Doctors have told me that it's just allergy season, but this has been going on for a couple years! Besides the endless coughing and sneezing, other symptoms that people develop include: itching around the eyes and nose, acne (on face and neck), sores on the outer lips, and fatigue.
Avatar f tn 11- Oh and if you have pets in your house, wash them well and do not let them enter the bathroom or the bedrooms for a while. Although pinworms can only live in humans, animals like to play around on the floor, so they might pick up eggs on their fur, and you can imagine the various ways you might inhale those eggs. I had to shun my beautiful cats for a long time :( If you do all these things and still get reinfected, there might be a problem. So the last step is the colon cleanse.
Avatar n tn my eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
Avatar f tn I check my temp when I get these episodes and its perfectly normal. I do not have a infection or am not sick. Im not even in a cold environment. Everyone around me is not cold. Its the weirdest thing, and I cant find a answer for it. Its like my body is messed up and sending these chills for no reason. Please help.
Avatar n tn Some of the weird parts are that the shakiness seems to be seasonal - coming in spring and lasting thru summer and its miserable like a tingling pins and needles sensation thru out my body. I have also been getting what some doctors seem to diagnose as recurring sinus infections- like 10 a year- i take anti biotics and i feel slightly better until the next infection but i still have the other symtoms while I am on the medication. I have hay fever and allergies to mold dust...
Avatar n tn My itchiness has been getting progessively worse for the past few years. I'd say almost 3 yrs now. It's to the point where I can't even engage in intercourse with my partner, go shopping or even go out in the sun. I keep hearing and reading how Urticaria, usually has signs on the skin surface but I don't, except for the really bad itchy feeling.
Avatar n tn Also, they don't last very long and aren't as impressive. Measuring, I've only lost .25 inch in length but an entire 1.5 inches in girth when arroused! (I used to be pretty well endowed) I also can't get them from visual stimuli anymore. I've had blood testing done and nothing has indicated that I should have any problems. I am perplexed as to what caused/is causing this and am desperate for a solution. I have to literally try everyday to prevent it from making me go insane.
