Has anyone used the topical steroid, TEMOVATE, for hair loss?
Any success/horror stories? Should it be prescribed to a female in her late 20s? I'm very suspicious. Asked by Charlesetta Weigle 2 years ago.

Hi, I'm a pharmacy student and I have quickly looked at some references. I didn't see in any of the references that temovate is used for hair loss. Both references cited the use as "Short-term relief of inflammation of moderate-to-severe corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses," which doesn't seem to me to be related to hair loss. I can't give you a definitive answer here, as drugs are often used for indications they are not actually approved for, but definitely ask your pharmacist about it if you are concerned. Answered by Emory Kolb 2 years ago.

I'm a female in my mid-20s, and I use it, but not for hair loss. I use it on my skin. It's fine as long as you use just a thin layer and skip a day or two if your skin starts feeling red/sore at all. I've got great results. Answered by Jeanene Gauld 2 years ago.


Is temovate safe for dogs?
My vet prescribed it for itchy allergies on my dogs paws, however I can't find any info on the web about it being ok for dogs. She threw up today and I'm wondering if it's from the ointment. The vet says it's fine, but my dogs like my child and I'm really paranoid. Asked by Nina Siqueiros 2 years ago.

Dogs vomit for a wide variety of reasons. They can even vomit at will. If your vet, a professional and an expert, says it's OK to use the temovate and it's OK if your dog vomited, then I think you should accept your vet's word for it instead of asking a lot of non-professional pet owners for their opinions. Sorry if that's a bit harsh but it's the approach I would take. Answered by Dee Ziemski 2 years ago.

Ointment from Mexico is treating my skin condition is that ok?
I live in deep South Texas about 10 miles from the border to Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The medication can be found in any pharmacy. Asked by Rosenda Vair 2 years ago.

I have had what is either exzema or psoriasis, I have heard both from doctors when i was little. I have had this problem since I can remember. Evertime I went to a specialist their prescribed solutions never worked. About 10 or so years ago my mother bought an ointment from Mexico for $25 called (Dermatovate) that was good for skin for cuts and rashes etc. I have been using it ever since because it makes my condition practically disappear when applying small amounts nightly. My elbows and knees are the toughest areas and it has pretty much wiped them out. Once I stop using it the condition starts coming back. I asked my doctor about it a couple of years ago worried of side effects that I havent noticed for as long as I have used it and he said if it works I dont see a problem. Should I still be worried or is the best thing I probably could be doing? Answered by Sparkle Eiche 2 years ago.

Dermatovate, is the same thing as the U.S. drug Temovate, or generically clobetasol. It's a steroidal ointment that is frequently used. I would try the clobetasol available in the U.S. (prescription only) as it might be easier to acquire and is manufactured under tighter controls. In this case it's just an instance of the same thing having multiple names. I would be leary of any drug available in Mexico that is not available in the U.S. There is generally a good reason the FDA may not have approved a certain medication for distribution in the U.S. Answered by Cecil Heafner 2 years ago.

Phone your vet to ask if they carry Derm Caps, which are caplets of oil to put on your pet's food. They're a mix of several oils and are designed to not make the liver work too hard to digest/process them. If they don't carry those (they're about $8 for a bottle of 60 caplets, which last more than 2 months), ask the vet what oil is safe to put on her food. No more than 1/4 tsp (about 5 drops) is needed, only three times a week usually. Do NOT use cod liver oil, that depletes the body of vitamin A. Flax oil is good, primrose oil (both are in the vitamin section of the grocery store), salmon oil and canola oil are all approved for pets, but some dogs may have a problem with one or more of the oils, which is why it's a good idea to ask your vet this question. Answered by Loralee Bozic 2 years ago.

I don't know were you are. I am in Mexico City and am a Cellular therapist. I work with a photo therapy- go to www.bioptron.com to see the effects. In US they just use it for cosmetic but here in Mexico the machine is used for medical purposes and teeth whitening. I treated someone with your problem and she is cured. She just needed three sessions. But maybe you can take Colloidal Silver (Plata Coloidal) You need to intake that also. But...Where are you? If they allow me try to send me a message at (all together) just b happy fevr at yahoo dot com. If not, just check my profile here. Good Luck and try those things. Answered by Jeannie Heft 2 years ago.

if it works for you, then continue to use it. my parents always go to mexico for pills, lotions or remedies that simply don't exist here and nothing bad has happened to them so i don't see what the problem is. if you see no side effects then dont worry Answered by Season Tamlin 2 years ago.

its safe alot of people are starting to go to Mexico for medical treatment so they want to start an med insurance program over there for us to use just like the gasoline problem if we are not going to step up to the plate then foreigners are going to to make money which is going to make U,S. businesses go bankrupt because other people are trying to solve Americas problems instead of ourselves like the cars our companies are simply not caring Answered by Ashton Stonecipher 2 years ago.

Doc gave me tenovate ointment for the black colour scar due to accident is the cream heplful?
for the scar and how much time does it take Asked by Regenia Piao 2 years ago.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Temovate is not useful in reducing dark color. It is anti-inflammatory, so that if there is ongoing inflammation, leading to increased pigmentation, it would help in that situation. However, once the original problem has resolved, and the pigment is left behind, the Temovate has no use whatsoever. Answered by Rod Bartamian 2 years ago.


Is psoriasis curable? if curable what is the treatment?
Asked by Keely Hopskins 2 years ago.

Psoriasis is a life Chronic Skin disease. Chronic means that it is an incurable disease, 10 percent of the population on earth has this. The treatment options are quoted below as well as the sources in the source list. "There are 3 basic types of treatments for psoriasis: (1) topical therapy (drugs used on the skin), (2) phototherapy (light therapy), and (3) systemic therapy (drugs taken into the body). All of these treatments may be used alone or in combination." Answered by Loren Matczak 2 years ago.

Psoriasis is a condition that can be treated and controlled, but I'm unsure if it is curable. My daughter's scalp and areas around the hair line are affected. There are alot of medications containing tar or other chemicals, but they are usually expensive or smell bad. It helps to have her hair thinned out once in awhile so her scalp can breath. When shampooing lather it twice, use only your finger tips, not your fingernails, rinse with warm water, and dry using a towel to rub the scalp. We found Pert for dandruff, works better than any other product. It also helps with her skin. Sometimes it will flare up when she takes certain antibiotics or medicines. Talk to a dermatologist. Answered by Rico Presnar 2 years ago.

My son has psoriasis, and has had it from when he was 6 months old. We put him on a dairy free diet, and added fish oil and silenium drops to his diet. His skin became much more manageable. There has also been reasearch done into UV treatments to help manager psoriasis. It's not curable, but it IS manageable. Answered by Dot Frabizzio 2 years ago.

Asked by Carmen Harr 2 years ago.

allergic to metal but they still sewed me up with metallic staples. It took 3 months with the help of steroids from my Dr to rid my body of the swelling and "itch." About 2 years after the ops I seemed to get some sort of infection and my Dr described it as vulvadenia. Around the same time I developed something called Granuloma Annulare. This is the generalized version. Since about that point in time I have also developed 'White Finger' and now I have noticed that my toes seem to be going white as well. My legs are either freezing cold or burning hot. To cut a long story short I don't get on too well with my Dr as half the time I get the feeling he only half believes me. I am worrying a lot and wondering what to do. I mean up until 2001 I was physically well altho' I do have an anxiety dissorder. My son was killed in a car accident in 1996 and it made me far worse. The condition of Granuloma Annulare was dianosed by a Consultant. Is there no cure for this? It is so unsightly. Answered by Georgene Demeester 2 years ago.

Zsa Zsa - Thank you for going to so much trouble to answer my problems. I was meaning all the symptoms seemed to start at the same time. Also I have swellings on the inside of my knees and my legs seem to be getting weaker.To look at my skin on my arms, legs and body it has a mottled effect like my blood runs just under the surface whereas before my skin was light coloured 'normal.' I had a biopsy with the granuloma but that was when it was just round my waist - now its all over me except for my neck and face. What I wonder is if all these things are connected? Sorry to go on so. Thank you for your kind thoughts about my son who was killed in an accident which wasn't his fault - a lorry came out in front of him and he had no time to steer away from it. He was only 30. Answered by Abdul Alberty 2 years ago.

Ok, I will try & answer all your questions one at a time. First was your Granuloma Annulare diagnosed by a skin biopsy or just a visual inspection? You say a Consultant diagnosed it, was the Consultant a Physician? If a biopsy wasn't done then I would go to a Dermatolagist & verify that it is actually Granuloma Annulare as some fungal infections resemble this condition. TREATMENTS FOR GRANULOMA ANNULARE: Corticosteroid creams or ointments. Your doctor may prescribe corticosteroid topical creams, such as clobetasol propionate (Temovate, others), to help speed the disappearance and improve the appearance of the lesions. Depending on the thickness of the lesions and the strength of the cream, your doctor may direct you to cover the cream with bandages or an adhesive patch. This is because covering the steroid cream makes it more potent. Corticosteroid injections. If the skin lesions are thicker and your symptoms are greater, your doctor may inject corticosteroids (triamcinolone, others) directly into the affected skin to help the lesions disappear faster. Freezing the lesions (cryotherapy). In cryotherapy, your doctor applies liquid nitrogen to the affected area with a cotton-tipped applicator or a small instrument designed for applying extreme cold (a spray device or a cryoprobe). The procedure usually lasts from just a few seconds to one minute. The liquid nitrogen freezes the lesions, helping to remove them and stimulate new growth of cells in your skin. In severe cases of generalized granuloma annulare, your doctor may recommend a special kind of ultraviolet light therapy called psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA). This treatment combines exposure to ultraviolet light (phototherapy) with drugs that help make your skin more receptive to the effects of ultraviolet light (psoralens). Another type of ultraviolet light therapy for treatment of granuloma annulare, narrowband ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy, is under study. However, more research is needed. ****There is some evidence that granuloma annulare is more common in people with diabetes, thyroid disease. This is important as both of these conditions can cause some of the other symptoms you mention. I would suggest getting tested for Diabetes & Thyroiditis Many studies point to anxiety as a big symptom of being Hypothyroid, along with feeling cold all the time. Also,Diabetes could be a factor in the cause of the burning/freezing leg symptoms you describe. Now to your Vulvodynia, doctors don't know what causes this, but contributing factors may include: Injury to or irritation of the nerves surrounding your vulvar region Past vaginal infections Allergies or a localized hypersensitivity of your skin Muscle spasms Changing estrogen levels that occur with menopause Many women with vulvodynia have a history of treatment for recurrent vaginitis or vaginal yeast infections. Some women with the condition have a history of sexual abuse. Vulvodynia isn't sexually transmitted or a common sign of cancer. Treatment of this condition includes: Medications (Tricyclic Antidepressants,Neurotin, & Antihistamines) Injections Estrogen Cream Lidocaine Ointment Physical Therapy Biofeedback Lastly to address your 2 surgeries with staples, I doubt that they are a problem as most are Titanium, but you could always consult with your past Surgeons find out what type of staples were used & discuss with an Allergist. In rare cases, I have read staples could cause an allergic or auto-immune like response. Finally, I am sorry to hear about the death of your son & how it had affected your life. If you haven't sought therapy before, you might also look into getting some help. Even though it has been 12 years since your son's passing, you can carry a lot of internal stress around with you & it can manifest itself into physical symptoms, pain or illness at anytime in your life. Hope this info helps! Answered by Mira Scavone 2 years ago.

My elbows and knees are the toughest areas and it has pretty much wiped them out. Once I stop using it the condition starts coming back. I asked my doctor about it a couple of years ago worried of side effects that I havent noticed for as long as I have used it and he said if it works I dont see a problem. Should I still be worried or is the best thing I probably could be doing? Answered by Keila Strefeler 2 years ago.

Dermatovate, is the same thing as the U.S. drug Temovate, or generically clobetasol. It's a steroidal ointment that is frequently used. I would try the clobetasol available in the U.S. (prescription only) as it might be easier to acquire and is manufactured under tighter controls. In this case it's just an instance of the same thing having multiple names. I would be leary of any drug available in Mexico that is not available in the U.S. There is generally a good reason the FDA may not have approved a certain medication for distribution in the U.S. Answered by Vinnie Sarna 2 years ago.

Phone your vet to ask if they carry Derm Caps, which are caplets of oil to put on your pet's food. They're a mix of several oils and are designed to not make the liver work too hard to digest/process them. If they don't carry those (they're about $8 for a bottle of 60 caplets, which last more than 2 months), ask the vet what oil is safe to put on her food. No more than 1/4 tsp (about 5 drops) is needed, only three times a week usually. Do NOT use cod liver oil, that depletes the body of vitamin A. Flax oil is good, primrose oil (both are in the vitamin section of the grocery store), salmon oil and canola oil are all approved for pets, but some dogs may have a problem with one or more of the oils, which is why it's a good idea to ask your vet this question.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Temovate is not useful in reducing dark color. It is anti-inflammatory, so that if there is ongoing inflammation, leading to increased pigmentation, it would help in that situation.

Is psoriasis curable? if curable what is the treatment?
Asked by Modesta Mate 2 years ago.

Psoriasis is a life Chronic Skin disease. Chronic means that it is an incurable disease, 10 percent of the population on earth has this. The treatment options are quoted below as well as the sources in the source list. "There are 3 basic types of treatments for psoriasis: (1) topical therapy (drugs used on the skin), (2) phototherapy (light therapy), and (3) systemic therapy (drugs taken into the body). All of these treatments may be used alone or in combination." Answered by Londa Dicello 2 years ago.

Psoriasis is a condition that can be treated and controlled, but I'm unsure if it is curable. My daughter's scalp and areas around the hair line are affected. There are alot of medications containing tar or other chemicals, but they are usually expensive or smell bad. It helps to have her hair thinned out once in awhile so her scalp can breath. When shampooing lather it twice, use only your finger tips, not your fingernails, rinse with warm water, and dry using a towel to rub the scalp. We found Pert for dandruff, works better than any other product. It also helps with her skin. Sometimes it will flare up when she takes certain antibiotics or medicines. Talk to a dermatologist.

allergic to metal but they still sewed me up with metallic staples. It took 3 months with the help of steroids from my Dr to rid my body of the swelling and "itch." About 2 years after the ops I seemed to get some sort of infection and my Dr described it as vulvadenia. Around the same time I developed something called Granuloma Annulare. This is the generalized version. Since about that point in time I have also developed 'White Finger' and now I have noticed that my toes seem to be going white as well. My legs are either freezing cold or burning hot. To cut a long story short I don't get on too well with my Dr as half the time I get the feeling he only half believes me. I am worrying a lot and wondering what to do. I mean up until 2001 I was physically well altho' I do have an anxiety dissorder. My son was killed in a car accident in 1996 and it made me far worse.

I had a biopsy with the granuloma but that was when it was just round my waist - now its all over me except for my neck and face. What I wonder is if all these things are connected?

He was only 30. Answered by Lauren Sipla 2 years ago.

Ok, I will try & answer all your questions one at a time. First was your Granuloma Annulare diagnosed by a skin biopsy or just a visual inspection? You say a Consultant diagnosed it, was the Consultant a Physician? If a biopsy wasn't done then I would go to a Dermatolagist & verify that it is actually Granuloma Annulare as some fungal infections resemble this condition. TREATMENTS FOR GRANULOMA ANNULARE: Corticosteroid creams or ointments. Your doctor may prescribe corticosteroid topical creams, such as clobetasol propionate (Temovate, others), to help speed the disappearance and improve the appearance of the lesions. Depending on the thickness of the lesions and the strength of the cream, your doctor may direct you to cover the cream with bandages or an adhesive patch. This is because covering the steroid cream makes it more potent. Corticosteroid injections. If the skin lesions are thicker and your symptoms are greater, your doctor may inject corticosteroids (triamcinolone, others) directly into the affected skin to help the lesions disappear faster. Freezing the lesions (cryotherapy). In cryotherapy, your doctor applies liquid nitrogen to the affected area with a cotton-tipped applicator or a small instrument designed for applying extreme cold (a spray device or a cryoprobe). The procedure usually lasts from just a few seconds to one minute. The liquid nitrogen freezes the lesions, helping to remove them and stimulate new growth of cells in your skin. In severe cases of generalized granuloma annulare, your doctor may recommend a special kind of ultraviolet light therapy called psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA). This treatment combines exposure to ultraviolet light (phototherapy) with drugs that help make your skin more receptive to the effects of ultraviolet light (psoralens). Another type of ultraviolet light therapy for treatment of granuloma annulare, narrowband ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy, is under study. However, more research is needed. ****There is some evidence that granuloma annulare is more common in people with diabetes, thyroid disease. This is important as both of these conditions can cause some of the other symptoms you mention. I would suggest getting tested for Diabetes & Thyroiditis Many studies point to anxiety as a big symptom of being Hypothyroid, along with feeling cold all the time. Also,Diabetes could be a factor in the cause of the burning/freezing leg symptoms you describe. Now to your Vulvodynia, doctors don't know what causes this, but contributing factors may include: Injury to or irritation of the nerves surrounding your vulvar region Past vaginal infections Allergies or a localized hypersensitivity of your skin Muscle spasms Changing estrogen levels that occur with menopause Many women with vulvodynia have a history of treatment for recurrent vaginitis or vaginal yeast infections. Some women with the condition have a history of sexual abuse. Vulvodynia isn't sexually transmitted or a common sign of cancer. Treatment of this condition includes: Medications (Tricyclic Antidepressants,Neurotin, & Antihistamines) Injections Estrogen Cream Lidocaine Ointment Physical Therapy Biofeedback Lastly to address your 2 surgeries with staples, I doubt that they are a problem as most are Titanium, but you could always consult with your past Surgeons find out what type of staples were used & discuss with an Allergist. In rare cases, I have read staples could cause an allergic or auto-immune like response. Finally, I am sorry to hear about the death of your son & how it had affected your life. If you haven't sought therapy before, you might also look into getting some help. Even though it has been 12 years since your son's passing, you can carry a lot of internal stress around with you & it can manifest itself into physical symptoms, pain or illness at anytime in your life. Hope this info helps! Answered by Wilda Kawano 2 years ago.


Has anyone used the topical steroid, TEMOVATE, for hair loss?
Any success/horror stories? Should it be prescribed to a female in her late 20s? I'm very suspicious. Asked by Lester Matthees 2 years ago.

Hi, I'm a pharmacy student and I have quickly looked at some references. I didn't see in any of the references that temovate is used for hair loss. Both references cited the use as "Short-term relief of inflammation of moderate-to-severe corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses," which doesn't seem to me to be related to hair loss. I can't give you a definitive answer here, as drugs are often used for indications they are not actually approved for, but definitely ask your pharmacist about it if you are concerned. Answered by Melinda Bahm 2 years ago.

I'm a female in my mid-20s, and I use it, but not for hair loss. I use it on my skin. It's fine as long as you use just a thin layer and skip a day or two if your skin starts feeling red/sore at all. I've got great results. Answered by Chara Pacewicz 2 years ago.

Dogs vomit for a wide variety of reasons. They can even vomit at will.

What is Temovate used for?
Asked by Kenny Vitucci 2 years ago.

Are you seriously going to wait hours for an answer when a Yahoo or Google search gives a gazillion hits on Temovate? Answered by Theresia Kutella 2 years ago.

It is used to treat diseases such as eczema and psoriasis, where it is used on the scalp and body. Also dispensed to counter auto-immune presentations, such as Alopecia areata (hair loss due to auto-immune diseases) and Lichen planus (auto immune skin nodules).

To my question, has anyone ever used this and if so did you have really great results? if you have some zits or any type of other problems like that you should honestly go see a dermetalogists and ask for this its incredible.

You should be careful using that stuff on your face. I read the website and it says that it is for scalp and you shouldn't use it on your face or other body parts. Answered by Marilee Wadlington 2 years ago.

Ointment from Mexico is treating my skin condition is that ok?
I live in deep South Texas about 10 miles from the border to Reynosa, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The medication can be found in any pharmacy. Asked by Stormy Lutao 2 years ago.

I have had what is either exzema or psoriasis, I have heard both from doctors when i was little. I have had this problem since I can remember. Evertime I went to a specialist their prescribed solutions never worked. About 10 or so years ago my mother bought an ointment from Mexico for $25 called (Dermatovate) that was good for skin for cuts and rashes etc. I have been using it ever since because it makes my condition practically disappear when applying small amounts nightly. My elbows and knees are the toughest areas and it has pretty much wiped them out. Once I stop using it the condition starts coming back. I asked my doctor about it a couple of years ago worried of side effects that I havent noticed for as long as I have used it and he said if it works I dont see a problem. Should I still be worried or is the best thing I probably could be doing? Answered by Bart Snellen 2 years ago.

Dermatovate, is the same thing as the U.S. drug Temovate, or generically clobetasol. It's a steroidal ointment that is frequently used. I would try the clobetasol available in the U.S. (prescription only) as it might be easier to acquire and is manufactured under tighter controls. In this case it's just an instance of the same thing having multiple names. I would be leary of any drug available in Mexico that is not available in the U.S. There is generally a good reason the FDA may not have approved a certain medication for distribution in the U.S. Answered by Damaris Beyal 2 years ago.

Phone your vet to ask if they carry Derm Caps, which are caplets of oil to put on your pet's food. They're a mix of several oils and are designed to not make the liver work too hard to digest/process them. If they don't carry those (they're about $8 for a bottle of 60 caplets, which last more than 2 months), ask the vet what oil is safe to put on her food. No more than 1/4 tsp (about 5 drops) is needed, only three times a week usually. Do NOT use cod liver oil, that depletes the body of vitamin A. Flax oil is good, primrose oil (both are in the vitamin section of the grocery store), salmon oil and canola oil are all approved for pets, but some dogs may have a problem with one or more of the oils, which is why it's a good idea to ask your vet this question. Answered by Andrew Lemonds 2 years ago.

I don't know were you are. I am in Mexico City and am a Cellular therapist. I work with a photo therapy- go to www.bioptron.com to see the effects. In US they just use it for cosmetic but here in Mexico the machine is used for medical purposes and teeth whitening. I treated someone with your problem and she is cured. She just needed three sessions. But maybe you can take Colloidal Silver (Plata Coloidal) You need to intake that also. But...Where are you? If they allow me try to send me a message at (all together) just b happy fevr at yahoo dot com. If not, just check my profile here. Good Luck and try those things. Answered by Rene Jellis 2 years ago.

if it works for you, then continue to use it. my parents always go to mexico for pills, lotions or remedies that simply don't exist here and nothing bad has happened to them so i don't see what the problem is. if you see no side effects then dont worry Answered by Emory Dalhart 2 years ago.

its safe alot of people are starting to go to Mexico for medical treatment so they want to start an med insurance program over there for us to use just like the gasoline problem if we are not going to step up to the plate then foreigners are going to to make money which is going to make U,S. businesses go bankrupt because other people are trying to solve Americas problems instead of ourselves like the cars our companies are simply not caring Answered by Geraldine Polek 2 years ago.

Doc gave me tenovate ointment for the black colour scar due to accident is the cream heplful?
for the scar and how much time does it take Asked by May Fiacco 2 years ago.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Temovate is not useful in reducing dark color. It is anti-inflammatory, so that if there is ongoing inflammation, leading to increased pigmentation, it would help in that situation. However, once the original problem has resolved, and the pigment is left behind, the Temovate has no use whatsoever. Answered by Amalia Gutman 2 years ago.


Is psoriasis curable? if curable what is the treatment?
Asked by Bee Rumsey 2 years ago.

Psoriasis is a life Chronic Skin disease. Chronic means that it is an incurable disease, 10 percent of the population on earth has this. The treatment options are quoted below as well as the sources in the source list. "There are 3 basic types of treatments for psoriasis: (1) topical therapy (drugs used on the skin), (2) phototherapy (light therapy), and (3) systemic therapy (drugs taken into the body). All of these treatments may be used alone or in combination." Answered by Maile Haist 2 years ago.

Psoriasis is a condition that can be treated and controlled, but I'm unsure if it is curable. My daughter's scalp and areas around the hair line are affected. There are alot of medications containing tar or other chemicals, but they are usually expensive or smell bad. It helps to have her hair thinned out once in awhile so her scalp can breath. When shampooing lather it twice, use only your finger tips, not your fingernails, rinse with warm water, and dry using a towel to rub the scalp. We found Pert for dandruff, works better than any other product. It also helps with her skin. Sometimes it will flare up when she takes certain antibiotics or medicines. Talk to a dermatologist. Answered by Ardelia Marvier 2 years ago.

My son has psoriasis, and has had it from when he was 6 months old. We put him on a dairy free diet, and added fish oil and silenium drops to his diet. His skin became much more manageable. There has also been reasearch done into UV treatments to help manager psoriasis. It's not curable, but it IS manageable. Answered by Corie Minarik 2 years ago.

Asked by Jed Weyler 2 years ago.

allergic to metal but they still sewed me up with metallic staples. It took 3 months with the help of steroids from my Dr to rid my body of the swelling and "itch." About 2 years after the ops I seemed to get some sort of infection and my Dr described it as vulvadenia. Around the same time I developed something called Granuloma Annulare. This is the generalized version. Since about that point in time I have also developed 'White Finger' and now I have noticed that my toes seem to be going white as well. My legs are either freezing cold or burning hot. To cut a long story short I don't get on too well with my Dr as half the time I get the feeling he only half believes me. I am worrying a lot and wondering what to do. I mean up until 2001 I was physically well altho' I do have an anxiety dissorder. My son was killed in a car accident in 1996 and it made me far worse. The condition of Granuloma Annulare was dianosed by a Consultant. Is there no cure for this? It is so unsightly. Answered by Tereasa Nusom 2 years ago.

Zsa Zsa - Thank you for going to so much trouble to answer my problems. I was meaning all the symptoms seemed to start at the same time. Also I have swellings on the inside of my knees and my legs seem to be getting weaker.To look at my skin on my arms, legs and body it has a mottled effect like my blood runs just under the surface whereas before my skin was light coloured 'normal.' I had a biopsy with the granuloma but that was when it was just round my waist - now its all over me except for my neck and face. What I wonder is if all these things are connected? Sorry to go on so. Thank you for your kind thoughts about my son who was killed in an accident which wasn't his fault - a lorry came out in front of him and he had no time to steer away from it. He was only 30. Answered by Milan Pellum 2 years ago.

Ok, I will try & answer all your questions one at a time. First was your Granuloma Annulare diagnosed by a skin biopsy or just a visual inspection? You say a Consultant diagnosed it, was the Consultant a Physician? If a biopsy wasn't done then I would go to a Dermatolagist & verify that it is actually Granuloma Annulare as some fungal infections resemble this condition. TREATMENTS FOR GRANULOMA ANNULARE: Corticosteroid creams or ointments. Your doctor may prescribe corticosteroid topical creams, such as clobetasol propionate (Temovate, others), to help speed the disappearance and improve the appearance of the lesions. Depending on the thickness of the lesions and the strength of the cream, your doctor may direct you to cover the cream with bandages or an adhesive patch. This is because covering the steroid cream makes it more potent. Corticosteroid injections. If the skin lesions are thicker and your symptoms are greater, your doctor may inject corticosteroids (triamcinolone, others) directly into the affected skin to help the lesions disappear faster. Freezing the lesions (cryotherapy). In cryotherapy, your doctor applies liquid nitrogen to the affected area with a cotton-tipped applicator or a small instrument designed for applying extreme cold (a spray device or a cryoprobe). The procedure usually lasts from just a few seconds to one minute. The liquid nitrogen freezes the lesions, helping to remove them and stimulate new growth of cells in your skin. In severe cases of generalized granuloma annulare, your doctor may recommend a special kind of ultraviolet light therapy called psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA). This treatment combines exposure to ultraviolet light (phototherapy) with drugs that help make your skin more receptive to the effects of ultraviolet light (psoralens). Another type of ultraviolet light therapy for treatment of granuloma annulare, narrowband ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy, is under study. However, more research is needed. ****There is some evidence that granuloma annulare is more common in people with diabetes, thyroid disease. This is important as both of these conditions can cause some of the other symptoms you mention. I would suggest getting tested for Diabetes & Thyroiditis Many studies point to anxiety as a big symptom of being Hypothyroid, along with feeling cold all the time. Also,Diabetes could be a factor in the cause of the burning/freezing leg symptoms you describe. Now to your Vulvodynia, doctors don't know what causes this, but contributing factors may include: Injury to or irritation of the nerves surrounding your vulvar region Past vaginal infections Allergies or a localized hypersensitivity of your skin Muscle spasms Changing estrogen levels that occur with menopause Many women with vulvodynia have a history of treatment for recurrent vaginitis or vaginal yeast infections. Some women with the condition have a history of sexual abuse. Vulvodynia isn't sexually transmitted or a common sign of cancer. Treatment of this condition includes: Medications (Tricyclic Antidepressants,Neurotin, & Antihistamines) Injections Estrogen Cream Lidocaine Ointment Physical Therapy Biofeedback Lastly to address your 2 surgeries with staples, I doubt that they are a problem as most are Titanium, but you could always consult with your past Surgeons find out what type of staples were used & discuss with an Allergist. In rare cases, I have read staples could cause an allergic or auto-immune like response. Finally, I am sorry to hear about the death of your son & how it had affected your life. If you haven't sought therapy before, you might also look into getting some help. Even though it has been 12 years since your son's passing, you can carry a lot of internal stress around with you & it can manifest itself into physical symptoms, pain or illness at anytime in your life. Hope this info helps! Answered by Genna Grala 2 years ago.
