I know yahooanswers is not always the best place to ask health related questions, but this has been concerning me and help would be greatly appreciated. Last month (February 22) a dermatologist determined that a red scaly spot on my neck was eczema. She told me to continue using dermatop (I had it because my doctor prescribed it to me). The dermatop also contained a fungicid. Anyways, after all this time, my eczema still has improved dramatically but it's still not gone! Admittedly, I haven't been using it religiously the way I should have been. I definitely used it twice a day for at least the first four days, but after that, MOST of the time I'd use it only once and sometimes I wouldn't use it at all, other times I would use it twice a day. I've read online that Dermatop shouldn't be used for longer than two weeks. My question is, should I keep using the Dermatop? As I said, I didn't use it to the full extent I should've but I would imagine that the eczema should be gone by now? What steps should I take? Thank you for your help. Answered by Paul Howley 6 months ago.
You should not use it longer than two weeks, but when the doctor tells you to do it, than you better believe what he/she is telling you, otherwise you won't get rid of the eczema at all. Use it until your doctor says stop or dermatop is finished. If than your eczema is gone, fine, if not an other visit at the dermatologist would be necessary.. Answered by Vern Diponio 6 months ago.

Do you want to hide it? Try buying Dermatop foundation, which is a waterproof makeup used to hide blemishes (even tattoos) on the body. I've used it for bruises before and it works. You can get it at places like Macy's. Answered by Kallie Lawall 6 months ago.

My doc said she would but then looked at the dosage i had last time and said it was to dangerous because of the sideeffects. I am wondering if anyone out there as any tips, good creams or ointments. I just need some support i am hoping i will grow out of it. Do you grow out of it? Also beacuse of my age is it hormones Answered by Flo Rippel 6 months ago.
Treatments for Eczema When your child's eczema flares, the typical treatments include topical steroids and the newer non-steroidal medications like Elidel (pimecrolimus) and Protopic (tacrolimus). Keep in mind that there are warnings about using Elidel and Protopic in children who are under two years old or for continuous use over long periods of time. Topical steroids can range from over the counter hydrocortisone creams, which are very mild and may even be used on the face, to stronger mid- and super-potent steroids that require a prescription. In general, super-potent steroids are avoided in children, and intermediate or mid-potency steroids are more commonly prescribed, such as Cutivate (Fluticasone), Dermatop (prednicarbate), Elocon (mometasone), Locoid Lipocream (hydrocortisone butyrate) , and 0.1 percent triamcinolone. Even these can cause side effects, including skin thinning and stretch marks if they are used for to long in the same place though. They should also not be used on a child's face or under occlusion, like under a diaper. Newer immunomodulators or steroid-free topical medications are also available to treat children with eczema, including Elidel and Protopic. They are generally used twice a day in children over age two and can be applied to all areas where your child has eczema, including his face. They may also help avoid flares if you then begin using them at the first sign of itching or a rash. Antihistamines are also often used as part of a good treatment regimen for eczema. They are particularly helpful if itching is interfering with your child's sleep, in which case a sedating antihistamine, like Benadryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride) or Atarax (hydroxyzine hydrochloride), may work well. Cold compresses can also be effective at helping your child control his scratching when his skin itches. Other treatments are also available for very difficult to treat cases of eczema, including using wet dressings, oral steroids, ultraviolet light therapy, and immunosuppressive drugs, like cylcosporin. What You Need To Know * Although there is no cure, many children either outgrow their eczema, or it at least gets better as they get older. * Eczema does run in certain families and can be associated with other 'allergic'-type disorders, like allergic rhinitis and asthma. * You should apply moisturizers on top of your child's other topical medications during eczema flares. * Most experts now recommend that your child take a daily, 10-minute bath to help moisturize his skin. As long as you place a moisturizer or lubricant on his skin within two or three minutes after his bath, it should keep his skin healthy and well hydrated. * Be ready for times when your child's eczema may get worse, including the winter, when your house may be dry, and summertime, when he may be swimming or getting overheated outside. * Keep in mind that skin infections often accompany difficult to treat eczema flares and your child may sometimes require an antibiotic, in addition to his usual eczema treatments. * If your child's eczema isn't improving with standard treatments, see a pediatric dermatologist for further help and treatment advice.

Lydia, hello. Yes, it could be tied to hormonal upsurge (it was in my case for sure) and you may well grow out of it. I suggest that you use Vaseline for moisturizer (it's the most neutral and effective moisturizer). Avoid long and hot showers/baths as they dry the skin out. From my experience I may suggest the herbal anti-eczema remedy (cream and spray combo) from Champori.com: it is steroid-free and works fast.

Anyone going thru PUPP rash??
I am 32 weeks pregnant with Twins and didn't even know this rash existed. Does anyone have any advice as to what might work? I have tried Aloe Vera Gel and Gold Bond powder and that works for abt 1-2 hours so I can get a little of sleep. This is so depressing.....
Asked by Meg Ziegler 6 months ago.
Here's some tips I found on what works for PUPP: Try taking an oatmeal or baking soda bath; or applying cold compresses Benedryl and Calamine lotion (the old- fashioned pink kind, not the Caladryl) works. Dermatop by Aventis helps 1- Take a warm shower. 2- Clean your bath tub and fill it half with hot water. 3- Add one cup of (or more if you want to) dry mint leaves. Let it brew. 4- Add cold water to make the water warm and safe for the baby. 5- Stay in the mint-leaves-all-over-bath tub for 20-30 minutes. 6- Before getting out and taking a shower, rub your body with the mint leaves with the help of a sponge - especially itchy areas!- This helps you for about 4-6 hours. You might itch -just like a few mosquito bites here and there- but not all over! Repeat it as much as you need to. I do it in the morning before going to work and at night before going to bed. Use BasisCreme after the shower.(Glaxo-Smith-Kline makes this, your Dr. can prescribe if needed) Take Calcium C tablets regularly. Avoid direct sun Avoid ''allergy known'' food such as tomatoes, orange, peaches Avoid any products that have caffeine. Caffeine can make itching worse. Hope this info brings you some relief from this rash! Good luck! Answered by Felice Stcroix 6 months ago.

There's one place on the top face of my right foot that gets an itch, and no matter how much I scratch or wash it, the itch simply refuses to go away. I've had this recurring itch for, gosh, must be years now. And I get it almost every day. I mostly get this at night when I go to bed. Last night I was awake for HOURS with this itch, I had a damp towel wrapped around it trying to cool it down (it was burning from how much I'd been scratching it) and I ended up with lots of bloodied scratch marks in the morning from the ordeal. I still don't know how I managed to fall asleep... I think I cried myself to sleep in frustration. :( Even though it's gone at the moment, I know I'll get the itch again in that very same place tonight, and I have no idea why I always itch there, or what I can do about it. :( It's driving me MAD, please help. Answered by Sanjuanita Garriss 6 months ago.
It can be a skin issue or a nerve issue. It can be a fungus, a bacteria, or some misdirected nerve impulse. Lidocaine patches help and so do steroids such as dermatop. They stop the inflammation and the itch. Your doctor or a dermatologist can help you. Benadryl as directed can really help too or a combination of all the above. When you scratch it, histamine is released, making you itch worse, so try to press with a cool, wet towel or ice pack if it gets going tonight. Buy some cortisone with lidocaine at the drugstore today and put it on before bed and take an antihistamine. Steroid creams or ointments available with a prescription can be a godsend and are much stronger and more effective than over the counter so call and ask for a script or sample. See your doctor and stop suffering. They may never know exactly what the issue is, but they can make it stop. Sorry you've been enduring this so long. Sounds awful.

I'm allergic to nickel as well, but oddly I only get swelling in my ears from earrings not made from gold, silver or platinum. Obviously, I'm sure you know that jewlery made from these metals is right for you but yes I have one or two pieces made from nickel that I'm fond of as well. There is a solution you can buy to coat the metal (this allergy is highly common!) from some pharmacies. Otherwise a family friend told me that if you get clear nail polish and paint it over it acts as a sort of galvanising agent (at least for the night out). Give it a go and I hope it works for you!

You are much better off not wearing it. Covering all the nickel in varnish might do the trick, but save up and get a good quality one that will last you all your life, not just a term. And why go to the doc if you won't take his advice? Answered by Timothy Breazeale 6 months ago.
Alexa has great advice! My friend has the same nickel sensitivity and she would use clear nail polish to swipe over the surface of her jewelry. It does wear off over time, but you just re-apply.

Hi there. I developed Eczema when I was around 13 and went to the dermatologist like 5 times in which they also prescribed tons of different meds for me at costly prices, and told me to use oatmeal lotions or lotions like Eucerin, and hydrocortizone creams, stuff like that.... They also told me that the older I got the better it would get....Totally wrong! My Ezcema went from the back of my legs to my enitre legs, to my arms, my neck, my face...all over! I had to wrap my legs at night, and wear gloves so I wouldn't scratch during the night...It was so horrible, I did nothing but cry!!! But now that I am 24, knock on wood, I haven't had it in years! I am allergic to a lot of fragrances like perfumes, dish detergents, laundry detergents, and also dust, some dog hair etc..... But this is how I got my Ezcemza under control. There was one CREAM...not OINTMENT!! That my doctor did prescribe to me and it is called DERMATOP! This Cream did wonders. She said it was only to be used on the face, which will clear I mean anything up, I used it for my Ezcemza, pimples, even cold sores! I did use it on my arms and legs and it totally helped! There was anoher cream to but I cant remember the name of it. But anway It totally worked for me! I found out that OINMENTS only make me itch worst! It gave me that "ANTS ON ME" feeling and made it were I would just itch even more. CREAMS ARE WAY BETTER, because they desolve into the skin instead of sit on top! Also Hydrocortizone creams and lotions (BLAH)!!! These did nothing for me..... I used a cream that comes in a big jar that just so happens to be a CVS brand... It is compared to the Eucerin cream but I tried both and the CVS brand is sooooooooooo much better. It kelp my skin moist during the day! It keeps out the dryness! ANd is half the price of the Eucerin! Taking shorter baths, and using only DOVE SENSITVE SKIN SOAP and not using a washcloth (only under the arms and private parts), and making sure the hot water was not too hot and only bathing when needed did help! Wearing comfortable clothings and not getting to hot, inside at home or outside in the sun is a good thing too! Also believe it or not, but eatting PRUINES (DRYED IN THE BAG) eating a couple of those a day also helped me! Oh and I can also tell you that drinking lots of water does not help, as I harldy drink water at all and I dont have Ezcema! I hope all of this helps! P.S there are ways of getting dermatop without a prescription, if that is somthing you wont to consider... If you need the info please let me know! Answered by Thea Raethke 6 months ago.
This is an unqualified opinion, but nonetheless an informed one. Keep his nails cut short, he is probably scratching the area which will cause infection and encourage the eczema spread. It is accepted in the medical community, that their has been a direct medical correlation with eczema, allergies and asthma. Take your son to an Allergist for a better informed opinion. Natural cocoa nut oil, cocoa butter can be useful alongside an oral antihistamine. You could be pleasantly surprised that Nasonex or Flonase could be rubbed directly on the area of the eczema and reduce the related swelling. These therapeutic options reduce swelling and if allergy is associated with the eczema these steps can provide him relief. It would be best to do this when he sleeps. Cocoa butter and or cocoa nut oil keep the skin moist and aid in restoring an even skin tone. When you go to the Allergist, check to see if their are any foods or materials your child could have an allergic reaction to. Children are always going to put their fingers in their mouth and eyes. Encourage he washes his hands frequently, at least 3 times a day. By the way I am not suggesting you ignore the infection, this may need to be addressed immediately, I would strongly suggest that you get the medical opinion of an Allergist or Pulmonologist. A Pediatrician is a good option, but not the trained specialist on what ails your precious baby boy. Peace. Answered by Nannie Trovillion 6 months ago.

Hye I had Eczrma on my face and eye lids to the point my face would peel at night as I was shedding skin! My BF told me I was a mutan and I felt like one. Everything that my doctor tried to recommend, like Eucerin, hydrocotizone creams, ointments (persribed) BIG 0! Did absoultely nothing for me. I had Eczema all over my body and wearing makeup was extremely tough to do, as I did wear it but I would sya by the end of the tight my face was so tight nd my eyslids so raw I looked like a freakin clown! But try this sutff as this is what I did and see if it helps... 1. Buy a sensitive skin face wash... I would suggest DOVE SENSITVIE SKIN FACE WASH, AS I USED THERE SOAP AND IT HELPED MY SKIN A LOT..... DO NOT USE A WASH CLOTH! JUST USE YOUR HANDS, AS A WASH CLOTH WILL RUB YOU RAW! 2. Go to CVS and buy the CVS brand of Eucerin! (THE CREAM IN THE JAR! IT IS LIKE 8.00) This TOTALLY helped my skin as it is not as greasy as EUCERIN, and it feels so good on the skin and keeps it moist ALL DAY! It is in a white jar with Green label!!!!! 3.DO NOT USE OINTMENTS!!! I found out that Ointments just cause you to feel more itchy as they just sit on top of the skin as to cream you can rub in and they desolve inot the skin!!! 4. DERMATOP CREAM WORKS WONDERS!!!! This was something that was prescribed to me, but you can get it off the interent (need to know how let me know)! It helped heal my face, as well as other parts of my body! 5. I know this sounds crazy but eating a few dried pruines a day will help! 6. Now as far as makeup goes...I dont really know how bad your face is broken out. You will need to research and see what all is n them as well as if they are for sensitive skin! Nuetrogen may be good but then again if you have it really bad, this can also burn depending on what kind you get. Best bet is to stay away from any base powders which will dry out your skin and make you look caky You need something that is moisturizing, sensitve skin, and/or light weight! I know that the new minerals make up covers a lot, as i have blemishes and it does amazing wonders for me.... I have dry skin, so waht I do is put a moisturizer on first let it dry..they put the minerals make up on and it leaves my face feeling soft, and breathable, not like i am wearing a ton of makeup!!! Oh the makeup I use is the Loreal Minerals makeup, try it it is usually by on eget one free at a drustore! Hope this might be of some help!

I've got it, due to allergies. For control I use zyrtec, benadryl, and am taking allergy shots to try and get a handle on the reactions and this is helping to reduce the severity of the eczema. Another thing that seems to work is eating yogurt with live cultures, I'd read about it somewhere and tried it and surprisingly it has helped reduce some of the rashing and itching. Avoidance is only possible if you actually know what is causing the problems, and for some things no matter what you do you're aren't going to be able to avoid the trigger (like if it's from heat or clothing). Stress can also make it worse and isn't something to easily avoid. As to the wearing make up, I gave up wearing that because no matter what I tried I'd end up so itchy and miserable it just wasn't worth wearing. Avon sells some that is supposed to be good for sensitive skin. Look for things that are for sensetive skin, hypoallergenic, and wear it sparingly.

the best way to control is avoidance. allergens differ from one to another so you should put a list to any thing u develop allergy to and don't use it again. you should know if any of your family is allergic to something u may be allergic to it as well. if you are going to try a new thing try to put a very small quantity on your skin and wait 1-2 days to make sure you are not allergic to it.

I have these red bumps on my right cheek for about a year now. If I leave it alone, blisters start forming and spread all over my cheek. After a few months of trial and error last year, this skin guy told me to try using a corticosteroid cream called dermatop. It made it go away within a few days. But when I asked an actual dermatologist about this, he said if it were herpes, dermatop should make it worse. The last time I went to see him again he said it's definately herpes and when I brought up the whole thing about the dermatop making it better not worse, he denied it. I don't know what to think anymore and I booked another appointment with him, only I have to wait another month to actually see him because he's all booked.

Asked by Jenee Sczygiel 6 months ago.
I feel your pain! Here is the plan of action I have taken to heal my eczema as much as possible. 1) Go to your family doctor and get a recommendation for an allergist (if you don't already have one). 2) Get allergy tests done, especially a patch test, which tests to see what chemicals you are allergic to. You may be surprised of what things you are coming into contact with that you are allergic to. For me, it was fragrance. 3) From your allergist, get a recommendation for a dermatologist. My allergist's solutions for my eczema were very temporary and honestly, not that helpful. My dermatologist was amazing in helping me work on my eczema. I was prescribed 2 different topicals for my face and body. For my face, it was Cutivate, and for my body it was Dermatop. The Dermatop worked wonders. Now that the sores and redness are healed up, I moisturize every day after I get out of the shower. Keeping your skin moist is essential in preventing future itchiness. I use Cetaphil cleanser and cream because it is hypo-allergenic and free of skin irritants. It is more expensive than typical cleansers (about $7-$9 a tub or bottle) but the cream lasts for a long time. It is also available at Wal-Mart, so it doesn't have to be purchased online. (BTW my Wal-Mart is not a SuperCenter, so it shouldn't be too hard to find). Avoid any irritants. The best tip I can give for you is to moisturize.. I can't stress it anymore! My eczema is at least 95% gone now. I'm still fighting a patch on my foot, but feet usually take longer to heal. I wish you the best of luck! It can get better! Answered by Chang Buesing 6 months ago.
I've had eczema since I was a child. I've seen many dermatologists and a naturopathic practitioner over the years and have been told there are two main types of eczema. Contact (caused from substances outside the body) and atopic (caused by sensitivity to certain foods). The naturopath told me it was a yeast problem in my bloodstream. Anyway bottom line: Lidex ointment from the dermatologist knocks it right out! I must warn you, that is a heavy duty cortisone ointment, but it is also available in a cream. You could get a lesser percentage of cortisone, since cortisone can thin your skin with continued use. There are other choices your physician will make the best one for your condition. You can also use Keri Lotion after your bath or shower. Follow the directions for Keri bath oil/lotion - it should help a lot with the dryness, as well as keeping the moisture in after you bathe. Keep your skin hydrated as best you can from the inside as well as the outside. Coffee and other caffeinated beverages are dehydrating because of their diuretic effect..

Some suggested a plastic surgeon since it was in a very visible location but our family doctor recommend this natural guide. Best Eczema Treatment? Answered by Concepcion Pellowski 6 months ago.

My infant son had severe eczema. The dermatologist recommended Cedaphyl Cleanser & Lotion. Also, he can't tolerate any products with perfumes, such as launry detergent or lotions. We use dye & perfume free laundry detergent & dryer sheets. Within two weeks his skin was completely clear. Don't be fooled...if I use Dove Sensitive Skin on my son just one time he has another outbreak. Be consistent & don't give in to the temptations of those wonderful smelling body washes & lotions.
