Hi, I am suffering from photosensitive dermatitis. I used zempred also but it's not going away and the cherry on the cake is now I am having secondary tinea infection. I am a medical student but still I am scared.

don't worry..Fungal infection or Ring worm.. when occurs in groin, called as jock itch.. Usually fungal infection is common in moist areas of body like skin folds..It's mostly circular or round in appearance.. May be red or black in colour.. Treatment depending on the type and severity.. Avoid sharing clothes, towels and soap; sweating also increases it..As it has to be differentiated from eczema and infection, its a must to see and confirm the diagnosis for proper treatment..So, please send photos of the affected area by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

When you keep your skin healthy, you can prevent dryness, itching, redness, and maybe lessen the need for medication. Plus, it feels good to pamper yourself. Try these tips: bathe only in warm water. Hot water dries out skin. Wash with a gentle cleanser instead of soap. Don't use body scrubbers or washcloths, which can be irritating. Pat dry with a soft towel instead of rubbing, and be sure to leave your skin damp. Apply moisturizers daily. Do it right after you bathe or wash your hands. Choose fragrance-free moisturizers that won't irritate you. Try using a thicker skin cream or ointment that has more oil at night, and wear cotton gloves or socks to lock in moisture. Gloves can also keep you from scratching in your sleep. Avoid too much bathing and hand washing. It will dry out your skin. Steer clear of alcohol-based hand cleaners, too. Limit your contact with skin irritants. Household cleaners, laundry detergents, perfumed soaps, bubble baths, cosmetics, and many other things can make rashes worse. Learn what irritates your skin so you can avoid it. Choose cotton clothes that fit comfortably. Wool and synthetic fibers can be irritating. Also, be sure to wash new clothes before you wear them for the first time. Use fragrance-free laundry soap, and rinse your laundry thoroughly. Avoid getting overheated. When you’re hot and sweaty, it can trigger itching and scratching. After a workout, rinse off right away in a warm shower. Know your triggers. Many people with rashes react to allergens such as pollen, dust mites, animal dander, and mold. Ease stress. It can be hard to find time to relax, but lowering your stress level will help you avoid symptom flare-ups.

I have nummular eczema on both of my thighs. I had first flare about 6 months ago. It is ugly with significant discoloration and is very bumpy. Dermatologist put me on prednisone, 50 mg tab x 5 days. I had an allergic reaction to prednisone. Swelling and bruising and severe itchiness all over my body. It even spread to my face. I still have ugly rash on both thighs and now on my elbows. What can be done to stop this eczema cycle. Dermatologist have given no suggestions.

Hi, I am a 35 year old woman. This january, I went to a homeopath doctor for my dust allergy which was quite st that time. The doctor gave me some liquid (25 drops) to mix with 50 ml water to drink. And three pills to be taken 3 times a day. I started taking it. After 2 weeks or so I started getting severe itchy bumps on my arms and legs. During my second visit to the doctor on february, I informed him. He said that the medicine will bring out the allergy in the body outside. After a month my skin became very itchy with lots of rashes and those rashes became eczema. I am so worried. It is irritating me a lot. It is very painful too. Kindly answer me what would have gone wrong with the medicines. The itch is totally out of control. I stopped the medication for the past 2 weeks fearing the eczema. My skin looks very ugly. Kindly help me.
