Answered questions

Can i use Topicort - I have cold sores on my lips.?
Asked by Vi Ekstrum 3 months ago.

I dont know much about topicort, but if you are looking to get rid of coldsores quick smart go to your local pharmacy and buy some low grade hydrogen peroxide (not the high grade stuff you can bleach your hair with) this type of hydrogen peroxide can be used to treat cuts and stings etc. Apply a small amount to the affected area by using a cotton tip/ cotton bud/ q-tip (depending what you call it). Just dont put it inside your mouth. It will dry up the cold sore very quickly. Best remedy I have found so far. Hope it helps you too. Answered by Danae Sarcone 3 months ago.

Topicort is not meant to be used on herpes and should not be used near the mouth. If you want to use something get a product made specifically for herpes aka cold sores. Answered by Rolland Collis 3 months ago.


Does topicort lp cream work discoid lupus?
Asked by Everett Acoff 3 months ago.

It rather depends on your condition. As someone who suffers from constant skin lesions from SLE, I can tell you that you'll go through a whole slew of creams, before finding one that actually works. What works for one person, doesn't necessarily work for another. And, you won't really know, until you try it for a period of time. For me, topicort was one of the first cream's I've ever used and it didn't work. I'm on ointment #6 - clobetasol. Though, it looks like it work's better on my sister's bf's eczema than it does my rash. When my rash really flare up, I fall back on the steriods shot option. Good luck!

What is Topicort?
my doctor gave me a creme called topicort (topical corticosteroid) for an irritation on my arm. He never tells me what the stuff does but only how to use it. So what is topicort for and what is it supposed to do? Asked by Risa Montis 3 months ago.

just that, basically a cortisone cream to help with the healing of the rash. Cortisone can be very effective for rashes, and certain skin irritations. Answered by Marianne Sumruld 3 months ago.

Topicort is a synthetic steroid medication in cream, gel, or ointment form that relieves the inflammation and itching caused by a variety of skin conditions. When you use Topicort, you may absorb some of the medication through your skin and into the bloodstream. Too much absorption can lead to unwanted side effects elsewhere in the body. To keep this problem to a minimum, avoid using large amounts of Topicort over large areas, do not use it for extended periods of time, and do not cover it with airtight dressings such as plastic wrap or adhesive bandages unless specifically told to by your doctor. Children may absorb more medication than adults do. Do not use Topicort if you are sensitive to it or have ever had an allergic reaction to any of its ingredients. Special warnings about this medication Remember to avoid getting Topicort in your eyes. Do not use Topicort to treat any condition other than the one for which it was prescribed. Long-term use of steroids such as Topicort may interfere with the growth and development of children. They may also develop headaches, or bulging at the top of the head. This drug is not recommended for children under 10. Avoid covering a treated area with tight waterproof diapers or plastic pants. They can increase unwanted absorption of Topicort. If your skin becomes irritated or infected, stop using Topicort and call your doctor. Answered by Zoila Ucci 3 months ago.

that's belongs to a family of medicine caled corticosteroid, which makes the body "ignore" irritation and allergens. so if you have a rash, irritation, or eczema that's the cream for it. but be sure to stop using it as soon as the irritation goes away, too much steroids will thin out the skin.

My boxer has a bump/rash on her head that she keeps trying to scratch. I cant watch her 24/7 so sometimes I catch her scratching it and would like to know if you can put Desoximetasone (Topicort) on it? Or would there be any side effects?

i'm not going to research that drug for you, but generally speaking, I don't recommend putting "human" drugs on animals without checking with your veterinarian first.

Natural treatment is safe and effective. Use of streroid creams harms your skin. SerenaSkin herbal remedies worked greatly for me. I used ointment and spray on the skin, and took extract internally to prevent flare-ups. It is the most effective treatment I've tried. More than a year later I'm eczema free.

T-Gel is made by Neutrogena and does wonders on my hair and scalp. Wal-Mart makes a generic, it's right beside it on the shelf but I can't remember the name. I don't like all generics but this one has the same exact ingredients and works as well. There are a couple of hints to this. #1) I don't know if you have long or short hair but what I realized was that when my hair got longer the dandruff was a lot worse. That's when I figured out that what I thought was dandruff was actually where I was not getting all of the shampoo out of my hair and it flakes on my scalp just like dandruff, only bigger and thicker flakes. The T-Gel gets that cleared up as well. #2)Don't use your fingernails when shampooing to get rid of the flakes. As good as it feels, it actually aggravates the situation. Just use the tips of your fingers to massage the shampoo in and out. This should clear it up in one or two uses. The T-Gel also works great on your eyebrows and beard if you find you may have some dry, flaky skin there too. P.S. STRESS is a big contributor to dandruff believe it or not, have you been extra stressed out lately? hope all this helps. Answered by Lovella Huneycutt 3 months ago.

I also believe that you may have a condition called Hidradenitis Supprativa. It is re-occurring boils/ cysts/abscesses that are often misdiagnosed as ingrown hairs, herpes, being unclean or over weight and folliculitis. This is a newly diagnosed skin condition , but there is a lot of info out there if you are looking. (*All links please COPY and PASTE into search or address bar. When I copy and paste my answer I have gotten complaints that the links don’t work, had to put some spaces between so it wouldn’t dissapear) Here is a link : en .wikipedia.org/ wiki /Hidradenitis_suppurativa or the HS_USA page is .. hs-foundation.org If this sounds like it might be you, READ it, PRINT it out, and TAKE it to your DOC. It’s better to try to start treatment soon, it can spread over the body if left untreated. These boils can become quite large and painful. Sometimes even lasting for weeks or months , do not attempt to POP them they can then tunnel under your skin and spread all over the body. Most common areas are armpits, groin, bikini line, inner legs, and intimate places and basically anywhere that sweats and rubs against clothing. Stress is a big inducer. There is a support group at MSN : groups.msn.com/ HidradenitisSupportClub Here is a few links that I thought it were interesting : mayoclinic.com/health/hidradenitis-sup... DS00818 aocd.org/skin/dermatologic_diseases/ hidradenitis_suppu.html I am open for questions! I have had this for 8 years, I was misdiagnosed for a LONG time, and it was very embarrassing, painful and scary. I am just trying to help out so you don’t have to wait as long as I did. Currently I have 5, 2 next to each other on my right inner groin. 2 in my upper HAIR area, and 1 med sized on my **** on the panty line, and they do come every week or so. I find that certain foods, not having a regular showering regimen, wearing clothing that irritates the area.. And STRESS usually is a precursor to getting one. I also prefer to use NEXCARE bandages.. There are 2 kinds I like for comfort and stay put reasons.. The first is like a clear band aid.... soft on the edges with a small area of bandage... helps with those buggers when they are on bikini line.. Usually stay for me.. Or occasionally on my inner thigh for those I like the foamy sponge like ones that are beige in color.. I think they are 3M. Answered by Sadye Cavagnaro 3 months ago.
