Causes And Treatment Of Eczema!

Eczema refers to any kind of superficial inflammatory process that primarily involves the epidermis, and is characterised by itching, redness, vesicles and sometimes crusting and oozing. Another term for eczema is atopic dermatitis. This kind of skin infection can start during infancy and continue until many years. Though there are some people who outgrow the condition, others may have it all their lives.

Causes:

The factors that play a role in causing eczema are:

  • Genetics is one of the factors that may affect the proper functioning of your skin as a barrier against harmful substances. Therefore, if either one of the parent or both suffers from the condition, it is very likely that their children too will suffer from it.
  • Abnormal functioning of your body's immune system can also lead to this skin condition. This is because it's your body's immune system that fights off infections as well as harmful intruders.
  • Dry skin brings down your skin's ability to fend off irritants as well as allergy causing substances from entering your skin, resulting in an inflammatory condition.
  • The presence of the bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus, which brings about sweat buildup, inflames the skin considerably, leading to this condition.
  • Even environmental factors like pollen, cigarette smoke lead to the flaring of eczema.

What are the symptoms of eczema?

Atopic dermatitis is commonly seen as dry patches appearing on the skin and sometimes these patches are extremely itchy and cause discomfort. In the case of infants, the rashes appear on the scalp and cheeks and often bubble up before the liquid oozes out. Rashes commonly appear on the backside of the creases of the elbows and knees in the case of kids above two years, and other places on the body may also be affected. In adults, the rashes can make the skin dry and cover maximum area of the body. It may also lead to further skin infections, skin irritation, and may also cause eye problems.

How can eczema be treated?
Though there is no overall cure for eczema, but the treatments can heal the affected skin as well as prevent flaring of the symptoms. Doctors often suggest a plan of treatment on the basis of the age of the patient, symptoms, and the present state of health. You can opt to take warm baths on a regular basis and apply moisturiser within three minutes. You will have to avoid harsh soaps and instead use the mild soap or non-soap cleansers while washing. It is important to keep your fingernails short so that you don’t scratch the affected area which would further aggravate it.
If you are unable to keep eczema under control with all these preventive tips, then it would be best to consult a dermatologist for curing it.

How can you prevent an eczema outbreak?

It is very common for this skin condition to flare-up from time to time. But you can avoid such outbreaks or reduce their severity by following these very simple ways:

  1. Sudden changes in temperature can cause the skin condition to break out. So, when the weather is hot, keep yourself cool but during cold weather, use a humidifier to prevent the skin from drying out.
  2. Keep sweating in check as it can cause an outbreak very easily
  3. Keep your skin well-moisturized so that it doesn't dry out causing further irritation.
  4. Avoid the use of harsh detergents and soaps, woolen materials as well as the consumption of foods that may lead to flare-ups.

Red Penis: Causes and Treatment

Red Penis: Causes and Treatment

No man wants to whip it out and find he has a red penis. Sometimes, the discoloration is simply caused by the friction of a man's hand, and a bit of redness can be expected after going at it hard (either solo or with a partner). But when the redness doesn't subside and presents with other symptoms, it may be a sign that treatment is called for. Proper penis care dictates seeing a doctor for an accurate diagnosis when a problem arises. The following list of causes does not replace that step, but simply gives men an idea of what may be in store for them.

Contact Dermatitis

If a man develops a rash on his penis composed of small, itchy bumps, it could be contact dermatitis. This is an allergic reaction that skin can have to chemicals, dyes, perfumes, etc. in products we use. Delicate penile skin is susceptible to developing contact dermatitis from soaps, laundry detergents, fabric softeners, flavored condoms and spermicide. Treatment involves identifying the offending substance and removing it from a man's routine.

Balanitis

Balanitis is characterized by redness and swelling of the head of the penis along with the foreskin. It generally occurs in intact men who have not been practicing the best hygiene. Bacteria builds up under the foreskin when smegma is not washed or wiped away often enough, and this can cause an infection. A doctor will determine the best treatment method based on the severity of the condition.

Yeast Infection

Most common in women, men can also get yeast infections that result in a red penis tip, itching and sometimes an abnormal white discharge from the urethra. Generally, antifungal creams are used to reduce the yeast population and restore balance. It's a good idea to get this officially diagnosed, particularly if a man has never had a yeast infection before, because the symptoms of the condition are similar to those of some sexually transmitted infections.

Jock Itch

This highly itchy rash of small bumps has sharply-defined edges and can spread on the groin folds, thighs, buttocks, penis and testicles. It's caused by a fungus called tinea cruris and is most common in men who sweat a lot in the nether region. An antifungal cream, along with steps to reduce moisture and heat in the area in the future, are usual treatments.

Psoriasis

If a man has psoriasis on other parts of his body, he may notice it develop on the penis as well. It manifests in rough patches of skin that itch. Steroid creams are often prescribed to deal with this skin condition, but some may be too harsh for the penis, in which case alternative moisturizers can be tried.

Since there are different treatments for different causes of penile redness, it's imperative for a man to nail down the true source first. Some men are self-conscious about going to a doctor for a penile problem, but medical professionals are there to help people solve physical problems. And besides, it's highly unlikely that a man is bringing something to the table that would surprise or shock a medical professional.

Taking proper care of one's penis can prevent some causes of redness, soreness and itching, such as jock itch and balanitis. Along with washing regularly, a man may consider using a penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) as part of his daily hygiene routine. A crème with vitamin A can help reduce bacteria on the manhood. Also, natural moisturizers like Shea butter and vitamin E should be included. These are gentle on the delicate skin, and, by keeping the skin hydrated and smooth, they can help reduce the risk of infections, since cracks in dry skin provide a harboring zone for fungi and bacteria. A man can show his love for his tool by taking good care of it.

Causes And Treatment Of Diaper Rash In Children!

Causes And Treatment Of Diaper Rash In Children!

Your baby's skin is soft and sensitive. Being cautious can reduce the chances of skin infections but it doesn't in any way refute the possibility altogether. Hence, you must be overly careful. Your baby could face intense discomfort if you happen to neglect the appearance of diaper rashes. Persistent rashes on your baby's bottom can make him or her irritable. Look into the causes and remedies of diaper rash in children to keep your baby cheerful.

Causes of Diaper Rash in Babies-

1. Friction and lack of air circulation between the skin and the diaper can make your baby suffer from rashes. Make sure the baby doesn't rub against a diaper for too long; existing rashes can go worse in that case.

2. You should never let your child remain in a dirty diaper for more than a while. A dirty diaper increases the risk of bacterial infections on your baby's bottom.

3. Skin chafing could also be the reason behind diaper rashes.

4. Yeast infections could surface in the form of rashes on a baby's bottom. Yeast or fungus is present in small amounts in every person's body. It can be easily developed in the moist yet warm atmosphere of a child's diaper. Being the mother, if you are on medications, your child's chances of contracting skin rashes is likely to be more. The side effects show in children as they are breastfed.

Ways to Treat Diaper Rash in Babies-

1. Each time a diaper is changed; the area must be washed with lukewarm water and cleaned with a soft piece of cloth. The area should then be dried completely. It is best to avoid soaps as they can be harsh on sensitive skin.

2. Applying ointments or petroleum jelly can soothe diaper rash. Powder can keep the area dry; it can also remedy itching.

3. Feed your child liquids like cranberry juice; it makes his or her urine less concentrated. Concentrated urine can cause severe bacterial infection.

3 Causes Of Lupus (Skin Rash) And Its Treatment!

Lupus is an inflammatory disease that is chronic in nature. It occurs when your tissues and organs are attacked by your body's own immunity system. The inflammation that this disease causes can affect the other parts of your body as well, like the joints, kidneys, skin, brain etc. It is often difficult to diagnose because it lacks distinct symptoms. However, one of the most identifiable symptoms of lupus is a ring-shaped rash on the face.

Lupus can be caused by a number of factors like:

  1. Excessive exposure to sunlight
  2. Susceptibility towards infections
  3. Certain anti-seizure, blood pressure and antibiotic medicines

Symptoms
The symptoms are neither distinct nor regular. However, some common symptoms could be-

  1. Fatigue and fever
  2. Pain in the joints, stiffness and swelling
  3. Ring-shaped facial rash
  4. Skin lesions on exposure to the sun
  5. Chest pain and shortness of breath

What else can lupus lead to?

Several complications may arise if lupus is left untreated. Some of them are-

  1. Kidney damage and failure
  2. Hallucination, seizures, strokes and several other problems associated with the brain and the central nervous system
  3. Anemia, blood clotting, vasculitis etc.
  4. Increased susceptibility to pneumonia
  5. Increased risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases

Treatment
Lupus is a significantly dangerous disease and medical help should be immediately sought if you think that you have symptoms associated with it. Treatment depends on the signs and symptoms of individual patients. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
