The best treatment for dry skin is daily lubrication with an emollient (a substance that inhibits the evaporation of water). Because most dry skin is due to external causes, external treatments like creams and lotions can be applied and effectively control the skin problem. Often, dry skin can be improved by applying a bland over-the-counter moisturizer. Once other causes of dry skin have been ruled out, the main goals of treatments are to stop the itching, prevent loss of water, and restore skin hydration. Light moisturizing lotions for mild dry skin Cetaphil lotion Lubriderm lotion Curel lotion Highly moisturizing products (that characteristically do not flow out of the jar when inverted) for severe dry skin Vaseline Aquaphor Topical steroid creams include ( should be taken under medical supervision) hydrocortisone 1% cream (mild strength), Pramosone 2.5% cream (mild strength), triamcinolone 0.1% cream (medium strength), fluocinonide 0.05% cream (strong strength). As a general rule, only mild corticosteroid creams like hydrocortisone should be used on the face, underarm, and groin areas. Long-term application of strong corticosteroid creams like fluocinonide may cause serious adverse effects, including skin thinning, stretch marks, and skin breakdown.

I am suffering from sunburn on my face and hand yesterday so what is precaution for that and which medicine is for that?
Sunburns are bad! They can cause pain, peeling, and pre-mature aging of the skin in the form of wrinkles and age spots. By using sunscreen, wearing protective clothing, and seeking shade, you can prevent sunburns. The following tips are ways to ease the pain of sunburn and possibly lessen the damage: Keep it Cool: Apply cold compresses, such as a washcloth or towel dampened in cool water, to the sunburned skin or take a cool bath. Moisturize: After applying cold compresses or taking a cool bath/shower, soothe the skin by spreading on aloe or a moisturizing cream or lotion. Avoid products that contain alcohol, which can dry out the skin. Do this several times to lessen the peeling and flaking. It may be beneficial to use a cream or lotion with vitamin C and vitamin E. Also using a hydrocortisone cream for a couple of days can relieve discomfort. It is advised not to scrub, pick or peel your skin, or bust blisters. Hydrate: A sunburn pulls fluid to the surface of the skin and away from your body, so it is important to rehydrate your body with extra water, juice, and sports drinks for a few days. Evaluate the Damage: The majority of sunburns can be treated at home, but if the blistering burn covers 20% or more of the body, see a dermatologist. Always use sunscreen, cover up with hats and protective clothing, and try to stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. And 4 p.m.

Don't Ignore Skin Rashes

Rashes on skin? when you need an expert opinion?
To the untrained eye, all rashes may look alike and seem easily treatable with over-the-counter oral antihistamines or hydrocortisone cream. However, it is not always so simple. Rashes can appear as blotches, welts or blisters; they can be red, itchy, scaly, or dry; and they can occur in one area of skin or all over the body.

Although most rashes are not life-threatening, some rashes can signal something more serious. If you have a rash and notice any of the following symptoms, make an appointment with Dr. Khans skin clinic immediately:

1. The rash is all over your body
2. You have a fever with the rash
3. The rash is sudden and spreads rapidly
4. The rash begins to blister
5. The rash is painful
6. The rash is infected

Things You Should Know About Addison's Disease

Things You Should Know About Addison's Disease

While cold and cough are common, diseases like Addison’s disease are rare. It is also known as chronic adrenal insufficiency or hypocortisolism as it is a result of insufficient production of hormones like cortisol and aldosterone by the adrenal glands. This disease can affect men and women of any age.

There are two types of Addison’s disease. These are:

  1. Primary adrenal insufficiency: In this case, the adrenal glands themselves have a problem.
  2. Secondary adrenal insufficiency: If the hormone production in the adrenal glands is restricted by a problem that has started somewhere else like the pituitary gland, for example, it is known as secondary adrenal insufficiency.

Primary adrenal insufficiency is more common of the two. This could be triggered as a result of autoimmune diseases or a long lasting infection such as HIV, tuberculosis and some fungal infections. Cancer can also cause this type of Addison’s disease.

Secondary adrenal insufficiency is usually caused by a problem with the pituitary gland or the hypothalamus as they are responsible for the production of hormones that stimulate the adrenal glands. Damage caused to the pituitary gland by tumors or radiation and surgery can also interfere with hormone production. Prolonged and improper use of steroid hormones can also trigger this condition.

Addison’s disease has a very slow progression and its symptoms develop gradually over time. Some of these symptoms are:

  1. Weight loss and loss of appetite
  2. Extreme fatigue
  3. Hyperpigmentation
  4. Low blood pressure
  5. Craving for salt
  6. Nausea and diarrhea
  7. Pain in the abdomen and joint pains
  8. Irritability
  9. Depression
  10. Loss of body hair and sexual dysfunction in women

Treatment for Addison’s disease involves hormone replacement therapy. This aims at correcting the hormone levels in the body. Hormone replacement therapy includes oral corticosteroids and corticosteroid injections. The dosage of these steroids could vary depending on the situation. For example, the doctor may suggest a temporary high dosage when the patient is in a stressful condition. Along with this, sodium is also recommended especially during the summer months and while exercising. This medication must be taken regularly as skipping a single dose can be dangerous.

In some cases this condition can become life threatening. An addisonian crisis causes a drop in blood pressure, sugar and a spike in potassium levels in the body. This requires immediate medical attention and can be treated with intravenous injections of hydrocortisone, saline solution and sugar.

Diaper Dermatitis - Causes And Symptoms

Diaper Dermatitis - Causes And Symptoms

Babies go through a host of problems that we usually refer to as growing pains. This article is of special importance to most mothers who are going through myriad problems like colic, teeth and even diaper rash. Diaper rash is known as diaper dermatitis in medical terms. When the skin of the area within the diaper becomes red and goes through inflammation, it is known as diaper dermatitis. Read on to know more about the condition, and how it may be treated.

Symptoms: The most obvious and common symptom of diaper dermatitis is the signs on the skin which will bear a patchwork of red blotches that may look tender to touch. The baby will also seem more irritable and cranky as the discomfort and pain starts to grow every time the diaper rubs against the rashes. Bleeding, itching and oozing can also occur, in which cause it is imperative to consult a doctor immediately. Also, if the rashes are accompanied by fever, one must get it checked as there may be chances of an infection. Diaper rashes can also cause pain during bowel movements and a burning sensation during urination.

Causes: There are a number of reasons for the occurrence of diaper rashes. Trying out a new product may sometimes give the baby a rash as the sensitive skin of the child may not take to some ingredient. Therefore, it may develop as an allergic reaction. This new product may be a cream, lotion or a new brand or type of diapers. Further, sometimes when we introduce new foods, the baby’s skin may erupt into rashes as a part of an allergic reaction. Also, chaffing or rubbing may cause such rashes, while prolonged use of the diaper without a change is known to be one of the most common causes of this condition. Bacterial or yeast infection can also cause diaper dermatitis. Also, antibiotics can cause rashes as a side effect.

Diagnosis: The diagnosis of the condition is usually done by a dermatologist or a paediatrician based on the symptoms that you list out as well as physical examination of the area. The doctor may also check the baby’s temperature in order to ascertain if there is any fever or any chance of an infection.

Treatment: One should keep the baby’s skin dry and absolutely clean at all times. Also, it would be recommended to use cloth diapers for a few hours a day so that the skin may get a chance to breathe. Further, the doctor will prescribe mild hydrocortisone ointments. Antifungal creams may also be used in case there is an infection. Oral antibiotics may also be prescribed in such cases.

Are You Suffering From Eczema? What Are the Causes Behind?

Are You Suffering From Eczema? What Are the Causes Behind?

Eczema is not a disease per se, but is a name given collectively to a group of medical conditions, which can cause the skin to become inflamed and irritated. Atopic dermatitis is one of the most common types of eczema.

Causes

While the exact cause of eczema is not known, the most commonly attributed reason is an increasingly sensitive immune system. The overactive immune system produces antibodies, which cause these skin reactions. It is also noted that people with allergies including hay fever and asthma are more likely to develop eczema.

Other conditions which can lead to eczema include allergic dermatitis, irritant dermatitis, stasis dermatitis, scabies, fungal infections, xerotic dermatitis, lichen planus and scalp infections.

There is also a genetic predisposition, and children whose parents have had eczema are likely to develop eczema.

Symptoms

In most people, eczema is present in the form of small blisters, which are filled with fluid and can ooze. Gradually, there could be dryness, crusting, scaling and thickening of the skin with plaque formation. The most common symptom would be itching. The different types of eczema as noted above would have diagnostic features. For instance, when testing for irritant or contact dermatitis, there would be an irritant that is causing this. Stasis dermatitis would have circulatory issues and often affects the lower legs.

In fair-skinned people, these lesions begin as red and then turn brown. There also could be lightening of the affected skin area in people with slightly darker skin.

Diagnosis

For a trained medical eye, diagnosis of eczema is not a tough task. A complete physical examination may be done to assess the extent of eczema spread. Blood tests may be done to test for allergies. In very rare cases, a biopsy may also be required.

Treatment

The goal of treatment is to reduce itching and improve moisturization. Eczema, unless associated with an infection, is not contagious.

  1. Using copious amounts of creams and lotions help in improving hydration and moisturization, as they are allowed to soak into the skin.

  2. Topical steroids may be required if allergy is suspected. In most cases, hydrocortisone and corticosteroid creams are very effective.

  3. Associated infections like scalp infections and fungal infections should also be treated with suitable products.

  4. Immunomodulator creams like Elidel are useful by suppressing the immune system and preventing flare up of the allergic reactions.

  5. Cold compresses may be used to relieve itching.

Prevention

Since there is a strong genetic component related to eczema, prevention is helpful.

  1. Constantly keep the skin moist and hydrated by using moisturizers, especially during winters.

  2. Avoid clothes and metals which can cause allergy- like wool, nickel, harsh soaps, detergents, etc.

  3. Avoid or be careful about food items which are known to cause allergies.

Haemorrhoids - Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Prevention

MBBS, MS - General Surgery

Haemorrhoids - Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Prevention

Haemorrhoids (also known as piles) are swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum or anus. Typical symptoms are pain, itching and bleeding around the anal area. Treatment and prevention will often involve non-prescription ointments, other home treatments and lifestyle changes. Haemorrhoids that don’t clear up may require a visit to your doctor and, in some cases, minor surgery.

Causes

Haemorrhoids are caused by an increase in pressure in the lower rectum from: 

  • straining during bowel movements
  • sitting for long periods of time, especially on the toilet
  • chronic (long lasting) constipation or diarrhoea
  • being overweight or obese
  • pregnancy
  • anal intercourse
  • low-fibre diet
  • spinal cord injury
  • poor posture.

Haemorrhoids are common and occur in most people at some stage during their lives. They tend to occur more frequently later in life due to age-related weakening and stretching of the tissues supporting the veins in the rectum. 

Signs and symptoms

Symptoms often depend on whether a haemorrhoid is located on the inside or outside of the body. 

Internal haemorrhoids lie inside the rectum and usually do not cause discomfort. However, straining or irritation when passing a stool can damage the surface of a haemorrhoid causing it to bleed. Sometimes, straining can push an internal haemorrhoid through the anal opening resulting in a protruding or prolapsed haemorrhoid, which can cause pain and irritation. 

External haemorrhoids lie under the skin around the anus. When irritated they can itch or bleed. Blood can pool inside an external haemorrhoid and form a clot, which causes severe pain, swelling, and inflammation.

Signs and symptoms of haemorrhoids may include: 

  • pain or discomfort, especially when sitting
  • pain during bowel movements
  • itching or irritation around the anal region
  • bright red blood on your stools, toilet paper or in the toilet bowl
  • swelling around the anus
  • one or more lumps near the anus, which might be tender or painful.

Bleeding during bowel movements is the most common sign of haemorrhoids. Rectal bleeding can, however, indicate a more serious condition, such as bowel cancer or anal cancer.  You should consult your doctor if your haemorrhoids:

  • bleed frequently or excessively
  • do not respond to self-treatment
  • if haemorrhoid symptoms have been accompanied by an obvious change in bowel habits
  • if you are passing black or maroon-coloured stools
  • blood clots have formed
  • blood is mixed in with the stool.

Diagnosis

 A visual inspection should allow your physician to see if you have external haemorrhoids. 

Tests and procedures to diagnose internal haemorrhoids may include: 

  • a digital rectal examination in which your doctor inserts a lubricated gloved finger into your rectum to feel for anything unusual, such as growths
  • a visual inspection of the inside of your anal canal and rectum using a viewing device such as an anoscope, proctoscope or sigmoidscope
  • a colonoscopy may be performed to do a more extensive examination of your entire bowel (colon) if your signs and symptoms suggest that you might have another digestive system disease, or if you have risk factors for colorectal cancer

Treatment

Most cases of haemorrhoids can be self-treated. More serious or repeat cases may require medication or a surgical procedure. Haemorrhoids can recur after treatment; hence, they are controlled rather than cured. 

Self-treatment 

Home treatment is often all that is required to relieve mild pain, swelling, and inflammation associated with haemorrhoids. Home treatments include: 

  • use of non-prescription haemorrhoid ointments, creams, suppositories, or pads containing a mild corticosteroid, e.g. hydrocortisone, or witch hazel extract
  • soak the anal area in warm water for 10 to 15 minutes two or three times a day
  • use stool softeners, which help stools to be passed more easily
  • ensure that the anal area is kept clean by bathing or showering daily – soap is not necessary and the affected area can be dried with a hair dryer
  • use moist towelettes or wet toilet paper (that do not contain perfume or alcohol) rather than dry toilet paper, to help keep the anal area clean after passing a stool
  • applying ice packs or cold compresses on the affected area can relieve swelling
  • taking oral pain medication, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, can help to relieve discomfort.

Non-surgical and surgical procedures 

For an external haemorrhoid in which a clot has formed, prompt relief can be obtained from your doctor performing a simple incision to remove the clot. 

For persistent bleeding or painful haemorrhoids, the following non-surgical procedures to destroy the haemorrhoid can be performed in a doctor’s office:

  • rubber band ligation, involves using a rubber band to cut off the blood supply to the haemorrhoid causing it to shrivel and die
  • injection (sclerotherapy), involves injecting a substance into the haemorrhoid to make it harden and shrink
  • laser or infrared coagulation, which is a type of heat treatment that causes the haemorrhoid to harden and shrivel.
  • If non-surgical procedures are not successful or if the haemorrhoids are particularly large, one of the following surgical procedures may be necessary:
  • haemorrhoidectomy - removal of a haemorrhoid with a scalpel or laser
  • haemorrhoid stapling - removal of a haemorrhoid with a special staple gun that also inserts a ring of staples to close the wound and prevent bleeding. 

Prevention

Keeping your stools soft is the best way to prevent haemorrhoids from occurring. The following steps can help to prevent haemorrhoids from occurring and reduce symptoms of existing haemorrhoids:

  • eat high-fibre foods
  • drink plenty of fluids
  • consider using fibre supplements
  • avoid straining when on the toilet
  • go to the toilet as soon as you feel the urge
  • get plenty of exercise
  • avoid sitting for long periods.
