Got skin discoloration from 1 use of fluocinonide (lidex) cream. Will it go away?
i was prescribed this **** to make a rash on my rib cage go away and no my right side of the body is like super pale white. i obviously stopped using it and called my lawyer but will this go away on it's own? Asked by Caryn Pecatoste 2 years ago.

You called your lawyer? The discoloration will go away, it is a temporary side effect of the medicine. It is listed on a sheet that you were given with the medicine. Every day some of your skin cells die and are lost, and new skin cells replace them that are healthy in most cases. These new cells that are going to be replacing your dead skin cells have not been exposed to the medicine, and will eventually go back to your normal skin tone. Give it a few weeks or months. Answered by Alyce Crummedyo 2 years ago.

You look just fine. However, for African American skin I would not suggest a bleaching or whitening cream. These creams lighten and you end up with a lighter version of the blotchiness. You need something that's going to "even out" the underlying cells that are actually causing the hyperpigmentation. Look up Z. Bigatti Labs. Check out their Enlighten cream. Good luck.

Lidex or prednisone. Your Dr. can give you something to control it, but it will always surface if you are stressed out. No matter what you do, don't scratch it or it will stay broken out. Answered by Agripina Witting 2 years ago.

psoriasis is a genetically inherited disorder of the skin. There is no cure, but there are treatments out there, some very recent. If you have not consulted a dermatologist, I encourage you to do so. Answered by Breann Sivan 2 years ago.

I used to use Lidex. It has the consistency of Vasoline. Have you tried this yet? If not, ask your doctor to prescribe it. Anytime I put it on, the psoriasis would be gone within a couple of days. Good luck! Answered by Johana Deanhardt 2 years ago.

I had a 13 year history of psoriasis, though I was in good health otherwise. But these severe large, thick and scaly excoriated plaques on my neck, ears, trunk and limbs ruined the way I was leading my life. I would be with red, inflamed itchy skin for most part of the year and these silvery scales would seem to be erupting without any reason. To make matters worse, blisters would appear over already red and itching skin. It was living hell. I was treated with various options but nothing seemed to be working. Some of the treatments that I underwent in this depressing period of 13 years included tar preparation, tropical steroids and anthralin. I was also given light therapy many times but everything I tried would give me temporary relief. And soon, after a few days I would be plagued with the situation again. In one of those moments when I was completely lost I stumbled upon this website just by chance. I read it and felt that as if someone had put the story my life on this web page. I was thoroughly convinced that if ANYONE can cure me of condition, it would be you. And was I right, or what. I started recovering within 3 days of starting this treatment. Something that had become a painful part of me for 13 years was actually getting healed! My ears are healed and my neck is smooth again!. I am a month into the treatment and I have never felt better in my life! Psoriasis Revolution? Answered by Annabel Azeem 2 years ago.

First of all you need to make sure there is no secondary infection, if there is you must treat it first. Then you will need Ultrivate .05% ointment to control it, it's the best steroid ointment out there, creams will wash off to quickly. The ointment is used to calm the immune response down that is responsible for the rash, be carefull where you put this stuff, never put it on your face or underarms as the skin is too thin to handle it, all steroid ointments and creams will cause skin thinning over time, but on elbows and knees it should never be a problem, all other non-steriod therapys are barely effective if at all. good luck with the autoimmune stuff because the doctors know almost nothing about it except that for some reason your immune system is in active duty at those spots, The words psoriasis and eczema are just descriptions of what the sympoms look like. Answered by Lise Banton 2 years ago.

You've been doing the exact wrong thing by covering up - if you are where it is sunny, expose all the skin possible to sunlight! Its the best natural healer. Some of us have gone through the hassle of going to get UVA or UVB treatments! I know it's hard to have, I got it when I was 22. Get yourself another dermatologist if you are not happy with your doctor. There are times the skin looks worse with a cream, but it's actually on its way to becoming better. The doctor will be able to give you more options. As for the itching, get him to give you a prescription for a good antihistimine. I tried over the counter ones, and they didn't stop the itch. Now I use Atarax, take one pill just at night, and it eases the itching the whole next day. Also, use all sorts of creams and lotions from the drugstore to find out what eases the dryness for you. Even noname creams in jars are good. Vaseline is the best but it's greasy - try it at night. Vaseline creamy is less greasy. Good luck! Answered by Etta Cenat 2 years ago.

First, stop using the cream since it doesn't work on you and seems to make the psoriasis worse. Expose your affected areas to the sun, it can help greatly. Find a more natural solution since they don't tend to irritate the skin and are easily absorbed in the sin, prompting faster healing. Answered by Linsey Gata 2 years ago.

I have a friend who has psoriasis and she said the same thing so she started looking for altenative remydees and she said putting green tea bags on it helped alot and I've seen a BIG difference. She also says drinking green tea is good for other problems so its two for one in my book. Answered by Laquita Creswell 2 years ago.

I used Mushatts for years and it is simply amazing. There are about 5 or 6 products and they are all natural and have no steroids. Plus its over the counter and not too expensive. I think you can get them on their website mushatts.com Answered by Guillermo Canclini 2 years ago.

I have it on my feet. I take prednisone for psoriatic arthritis and it really helps my feet. Talk to your doctor about that. Of course, there are side effects from prednisone in long term usage. So you have to choose your poison. Answered by Christene Erspamer 2 years ago.

Have you ever tried coconut oil? It'll keep the skin moisturized while helping you not to get all that itchy. My sister had the same problem, but it turns out that it wasn't eczema. It was pin worms that had moved nto her intestines. I know it sounds gross, but you have tomake sure you ,move your bowels every day, otherwise, the germs and toxins from your bowels will escape through your skin. And you can guess that that would be VERY irritating. Answered by Stephaine Latouf 2 years ago.

First of all you need to make sure there is no secondary infection, if there is you must treat it first. Then you will need Ultrivate .05% ointment to control it, it's the best steroid ointment out there, creams will wash off to quickly. The ointment is used to calm the immune response down that is responsible for the rash, be carefull where you put this stuff, never put it on your face or underarms as the skin is too thin to handle it, all steroid ointments and creams will cause skin thinning over time, but on elbows and knees it should never be a problem, all other non-steriod therapys are barely effective if at all. good luck with the autoimmune stuff because the doctors know almost nothing about it except that for some reason your immune system is in active duty at those spots, The words psoriasis and eczema are just descriptions of what the sympoms look like.

You've been doing the exact wrong thing by covering up - if you are where it is sunny, expose all the skin possible to sunlight! Its the best natural healer. Some of us have gone through the hassle of going to get UVA or UVB treatments! I know it's hard to have, I got it when I was 22. Get yourself another dermatologist if you are not happy with your doctor. There are times the skin looks worse with a cream, but it's actually on its way to becoming better. The doctor will be able to give you more options. As for the itching, get him to give you a prescription for a good antihistimine. I tried over the counter ones, and they didn't stop the itch. Now I use Atarax, take one pill just at night, and it eases the itching the whole next day. Also, use all sorts of creams and lotions from the drugstore to find out what eases the dryness for you. Even noname creams in jars are good. Vaseline is the best but it's greasy - try it at night. Vaseline creamy is less greasy. Good luck! Answered by Shamika Vanstone 2 years ago.

First, stop using the cream since it doesn't work on you and seems to make the psoriasis worse. Expose your affected areas to the sun, it can help greatly. Find a more natural solution since they don't tend to irritate the skin and are easily absorbed in the sin, prompting faster healing. Answered by Antonina Krumbein 2 years ago.

I have a friend who has psoriasis and she said the same thing so she started looking for altenative remydees and she said putting green tea bags on it helped alot and I've seen a BIG difference. She also says drinking green tea is good for other problems so its two for one in my book. Answered by Terrie Donne 2 years ago.

I used Mushatts for years and it is simply amazing. There are about 5 or 6 products and they are all natural and have no steroids. Plus its over the counter and not too expensive. I think you can get them on their website mushatts.com Answered by Darren Faver 2 years ago.

I have it on my feet. I take prednisone for psoriatic arthritis and it really helps my feet. Talk to your doctor about that. Of course, there are side effects from prednisone in long term usage. So you have to choose your poison. Answered by Carlena Shepheard 2 years ago.

Have you ever tried coconut oil? It'll keep the skin moisturized while helping you not to get all that itchy. My sister had the same problem, but it turns out that it wasn't eczema. It was pin worms that had moved nto her intestines. I know it sounds gross, but you have tomake sure you ,move your bowels every day, otherwise, the germs and toxins from your bowels will escape through your skin. And you can guess that that would be VERY irritating. Answered by Del Waltman 2 years ago.

Got skin discoloration from 1 use of fluocinonide (lidex) cream. Will it go away?
i was prescribed this **** to make a rash on my rib cage go away and no my right side of the body is like super pale white. i obviously stopped using it and called my lawyer but will this go away on it's own? Asked by Erminia Guerini 2 years ago.

You called your lawyer? The discoloration will go away, it is a temporary side effect of the medicine. It is listed on a sheet that you were given with the medicine. Every day some of your skin cells die and are lost, and new skin cells replace them that are healthy in most cases. These new cells that are going to be replacing your dead skin cells have not been exposed to the medicine, and will eventually go back to your normal skin tone. Give it a few weeks or months. Answered by Mario Wainio 2 years ago.

You look just fine. However, for African American skin I would not suggest a bleaching or whitening cream. These creams lighten and you end up with a lighter version of the blotchiness. You need something that's going to "even out" the underlying cells that are actually causing the hyperpigmentation. Look up Z. Bigatti Labs. Check out their Enlighten cream. Good luck.

I got psoriasis for 5years on my palm ,without any recovery,what is the cause of it .is there any remady ?
I am fed up of it and want to suicide ,is there anyone to help me. Asked by Marc Urenda 2 years ago.

Lidex or prednisone. Your Dr. can give you something to control it, but it will always surface if you are stressed out. No matter what you do, don't scratch it or it will stay broken out. Answered by Reiko Gasque 2 years ago.

psoriasis is a genetically inherited disorder of the skin. There is no cure, but there are treatments out there, some very recent. If you have not consulted a dermatologist, I encourage you to do so. Answered by Edna Sroufe 2 years ago.

I used to use Lidex. It has the consistency of Vasoline. Have you tried this yet? If not, ask your doctor to prescribe it. Anytime I put it on, the psoriasis would be gone within a couple of days. Good luck! Answered by Jenise Ashauer 2 years ago.

I had a 13 year history of psoriasis, though I was in good health otherwise. But these severe large, thick and scaly excoriated plaques on my neck, ears, trunk and limbs ruined the way I was leading my life. I would be with red, inflamed itchy skin for most part of the year and these silvery scales would seem to be erupting without any reason. To make matters worse, blisters would appear over already red and itching skin. It was living hell. I was treated with various options but nothing seemed to be working. Some of the treatments that I underwent in this depressing period of 13 years included tar preparation, tropical steroids and anthralin. I was also given light therapy many times but everything I tried would give me temporary relief. And soon, after a few days I would be plagued with the situation again. In one of those moments when I was completely lost I stumbled upon this website just by chance. I read it and felt that as if someone had put the story my life on this web page. I was thoroughly convinced that if ANYONE can cure me of condition, it would be you. And was I right, or what. I started recovering within 3 days of starting this treatment.
