Answered questions

Are pandel hydrocortisone probutate cream, 0.1% the same as desowen cream?
Asked by Jacqui Colabrese 1 year ago.

No they aren't the same. Pandel is stronger than Desowen, it should only be used in the areas that your doctor precribed because steroid creams can cause thinning of the skin if used for prolonged times. Answered by Lavern Martian 1 year ago.

Does anyone know of an otc medicine with desonide? What works well for red and sometimes flaky skin?
A doctor subscribed Desowen and it worked well. I'm just wondering about an over the counter product that might work as well. Asked by King Carfrey 1 year ago.

There aren't any over the counter products that will work as well. There are some that you will waste your money on, but your better off speaking to the doctor again. Answered by Kelsi Dubill 1 year ago.


Just started Accutane...red patches...graduation in 3 days!!! HELP!?
THANK YOU DAD!! ~_~ I will be graduating business school with a proud 4.0 Now..if only my red patches will go away...SIGH Asked by Shelli Korst 1 year ago.

Ask your dermatologist for some steroid lotion, like Desowen. That should help. If your doctor is unwilling to call this in to your pharmacy for you, just try some over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream. Be sure that you are using *very* gentle cleanser, like baby shampoo/wash on your face. Any cleanser for acne or any type of scrub will just make your face more red and irritated. Also, make sure you are using a very light, fragrance-free, sensitive-skin moisturizer (like Cetaphil). Don't using anything scented or with acne-fighting ingredients, or it will aggravate your face further. If you can find some green-tinted moisturizer specifically make to take away redness, this will work best (like Eucerin's Redness-Reducing products). Finally, use make-up that is for sensitive skin -- a powder would probably be best since they are usually non-irritating. (You may want to skip your Accutane for these few days before your graduation -- this shouldn't hurt anything -- you can resume your therapy right after your graduation ceremony. A short interruption in your course of therapy won't make a difference in your final outcome after many months epecially with such a small dose that you're on.) Answered by Sofia Dombek 1 year ago.

hi!!! im a 21 yr old male from south coast australia, n ive been on roaccutane for 2 months now to make my face less oily. The whole process is going good, like my skin tone has evened out, my face is very smooth now n im not getting as much pimples, but my face, n my whole arms r red n the skin is flaking. Ive kinda always had a red face, havent understood why yet but i was jus curious as to wether this redness might clear up after treatment???i would luv 2 hear from any1 who has been in the same situation. thanx Answered by Thresa Crispen 1 year ago.

This is a common side effect. It can be controlled with a steroid lotion, like Desowen (it may be named something different in Australia, but you will have something similar). Contact your physician and request a prescription for it. It will help reduce the redness. Apply a moisturizer on top of the steroid lotion to help control the peeling. Your red/ruddy complexion is likely pre-rosacea. The Accutane will help to slow progression of rosacea, but you may develop rosacea later on (rosacea is more common in people with oily skin, red/ruddy complexions and with a prior history of acne). You may also want to inquire about lowering your dose of Roaccutane, depending on what dosage you're on. To reduce oily skin, 20mg per day (or even every other day) should be adequate if you don't have serious/severe acne accompanying it. Answered by Tynisha Sechang 1 year ago.

I used to get something very similar or maybe the same as excema. It was caused by a certain soap at my daycare. Maybe check the stuff she washes with? Answered by Evie Zieschang 1 year ago.

Urgent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...
i just accidentally scratched my scab off of a bug bite! it bled for 2 or 3 seconds, and now it's stopped because i put some pressure on it...but now, it's lower than the other surfaces of my skin, and it's white (with some blood in it) is it bad? to I need to put something like Desowen or what? Asked by Neoma Habash 1 year ago.

I doubt you should be too concerned. The white is probably just pus, or white blood cells, that are protecting your body from infection. You may also weep, or have a clear liquid ooze from the scab, but this normal too. It you do have weeping, and it doesn't stop, you may have impetigo and need to use anti-bacterial soap like Dial. But this is just in case. Answered by Linnea Fiorini 1 year ago.

If it was scabbed over, and you scratched it off, it will be a little lower than the rest of the area around it. Wash it out (as you would with any scab) a little peroxide, and ointment and it should heal just fine. Answered by Alisha Bertch 1 year ago.


HELP! Any Eczema sufferers here, or people who study med?
angel1966, I've thought about adjusting my diet before. I'd like to send you a private message but your setting does not allow it. Could you edit your profile message setting and allow me to send you a message? I really want to ask you something, thank you. :( Asked by Janice Bergfalk 1 year ago.

Let me try to give you the solution for your problem. This solution is very simple but needs discipline, it seems that you eat too much white flour, bread, pizza, cakes, etc. When a person eats white flour, this is not digested immediately, it takes your body around ten days to get ready of the waste, while the white flour is in your body, your liver and kidneys are working over time, your intestines are getting " intoxicated" with the waste and the easier way for your body to get rid of the waste is pushing it out through your skin, some people suffered acne some other people like you suffer eczema, when the toxins are spelled out through the skin, the skin gets red and hot with dry, rough patches. Let me give you these diet, and you will see de difference within days; 1 No white flour, that means no cakes, no pizza, no pasta, absolutely no white flour. 2 No white sugar, no candies, no sodas (diet or regular0 and no caffeine 3 No cheeses or milk, at least until your metabolism start working again 4 eat a lot of salads, try to not eat a lot of fuits for the first week specially bananas, mangoes and grapes (very high in sugars) Try this diet, it will work I promise, please let me know in about ten days how are you doing Answered by Rolf Enzenauer 1 year ago.

My little boy had eczema on his cheeks. I was not sure what method to use but I didn't want to make my boy go through any surgery treatments at this young age. 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 Debra Panther 1 year ago.

Your condition is possibly a long term chronic one. Either course of action may be acceptable. Find a Doc that is willing to experiment. Dermatologists see many patients most conditions are cookie cutter. Approach him with the info. If he is as curious as you are ( a good trait) he should be willing to try an alternative. I mean its not like its going to kill him. I understand your frustration, but medicine is an art first. The science part is strictly for the pharmacists. So he does what works for most first. Alot of the steroid side effects are based on massive oral doses, not topical application, but yet it can still cause long term skin changes. But so can the exzema. But why are you staying home from work again? You say its mild. If there are other issues, you may need to see someone to clarify some of your values. Answered by Liliana Yanagi 1 year ago.

your best bet is to go see a second doctor for a second opinion. relying on the web will only lead you to circular logic and make you think the worst. This means more unwanted stress instead of problems being solved. I'm not trying to put you down or anything, as I am sure you must be very frustrated with your situation.

Asked by Rubye Gilham 1 year ago.

Hello, sorry I never took anything like you but did work in GNC overseas. I had a baby and mom come in my store and we looked up what they can use that didn't cost an arm and a leg. The baby's face was bleeding from him rubbing it on the carpet ti scratch it was bad. ANYWAY we found that popping a Vit.E cap and squeezing it out, then rubbing it on your face worked!!! they came in about a week later the moms was gone and the baby's look 100 times better by the time they came back for other items it was GNC and you could never tell. Vit.E is 1.99 at Walgreen's or 7.99 in GNC get 1000EU Answered by Dinorah Nodarse 1 year ago.

My daughter has eczema and i dont use no steroid cream, In the beginning i used 1% hydrocortisone because that is what the doctor told me but i stop, now i use aquaphor on her face and body and put on aveeno lotion alot throughout the day. Eczema usually worsen with the season, so maybe u breakout more during the winter, i would suggest just putting aquaphor on it, its like vasline. Just a little so the skin doesnt look dry or patchy.

you shouldn't make a medical decision without consulting your doctor first, they had to study this stuff for years before they where allowed to become a doctor, they know what there talking about. i have eczema and they have prescription creams for it. look in your local pharmacy.
