Discoid lupus Erythematosus: DLE mainly affects skin that is exposed to sunlight and doesn?t typically affect vital internal organs. SLE is more serious. It affects the skin and other vital organs, and can cause a raised, scaly, butterfly-shaped rash across the bridge of the nose and cheeks that can leave scars if it goes untreated. Homeopathic remedies are prescribed by symptoms rather than conditions, as each case of a particular illness can manifest differently in different people. so please explain the symptoms and share a photograph. Use a good sun care lotion with high Spf as a must do thing when you are out.

There could be several external skin condition problems you might be suffering from like including psoriasis, eczema, and seborrheic dermatitis. Or there could be any internal diseases that is troubling you like under-active or over-active thyroid. Loss of the outer third of the eyebrow, in particular, is a characteristic sign of an under-active thyroid.

I have rashes on my shoulder from the last 2 days. Please suggest me what to do. Reply me as soon as possible.?
Skin rashes can occur from a variety of factors, including infections, heat, allergens, immune system disorders and medications. One of the most common skin disorders that causes a rash is atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema. Atopic dermatitis is an ongoing (chronic) condition that causes itchy, inflamed skin. Most often it appears as patches on the face, neck, trunk or limbs. Avoiding harsher soaps and detergents or other irritants, can lessen symptoms or reduce the risk of flare-ups. Medicated creams or ointments can also be prescribed by me after due recall of your medical history. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hello doctor. I am a medico. My mother was diagnosed to be subclinical hypothyroidism TSH 5.9 and was started on eltroxin 25 mcg and calcium .omeze and rantac .diagnosed 3 weeks back and started using. 2 weeks everything went well. Suddenly one evng she went to puja and returned back with URTICARIA. AND it progressed to lip oedema on next day mrng .immediately took her to hospital. Started on prednisolone 10 mg 3 days with allegra and montelukast. 3 days fine. Urticaria decreased. On 4th day again urticaria started now it was generalised (initially on day 1 it was localised) on that day night he developed one episode of tightness throat. But no shortness of breath. Later mrng again we took to hospital. Vitals all normal. Doc said to continue allegra and montelukast .and by evng urticaria increased and consulted dermatologist and started on deflocort and allegra and montelukast .now rashes urticaria less. My QUESTION CAN IT BE DUE TO ELTROXIN? RANTAC? OMEZA? CALCIUM? I MEAN DRUG INDUCED URTICARIA? OR SHE SAID SHE ATE LITTLE PRASADAM AT TEMPLE? CAN IT BE DUE TO FOOD? WHAT IS BEST STEP. ELTROXIN CONTINUE OR STOP?

Hello, It is very difficult to say which of the various drugs mentioned has been the cause of allergy. Usually Thyroxine is very well tolerated by most of the patients. However, allergic reaction can occur to any drug or a substance any time, even after continuous usage. To find out the culprit she may have to stop all medicines for a week or so, then may introduce one by one to see which one of the compound is responsible. Then that has to be eliminated for life time. Subclinical hypothyroidism is not treated with thyroxine. Only if T4 level is low, plus there are some troublesome symptoms of hypothyroidism present then only treatment may be initiated. TSH above 10 mU/L warrents treatment. Thanks.
