Does topicort lp cream work discoid lupus?
Asked by Chi Techau 2 years 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!

May Topicort LP be used on sebaceous cysts on the penis?
I have had these cysts for about a year and i had seen a doctor for it at one point and i think he perscribed this medicine but I thought checking here before using it would be better. THANKS.

Desoximetasone is a topical (for the skin) steroid. It reduces the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness, and swelling. Desoximetasone topical is used treat to the inflammation and itching caused by a number of skin conditions such as allergic reactions, eczema, and psoriasis. -I'd say it's okay to use Answered by Alica Segalla 2 years 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 Phebe Henstrom 2 years ago.

Really weird skin rash?
It doesn't look like lyme disease. I haven't felt any of the symptoms and I have had it for several months (Lyme disease's symptoms occur within a month) and the rashes aren't circular.
Asked by Maximo Reynold 2 years ago.
This rash as far as I can tell started on my right hand by a spider bite last summer. The bite stayed for a long time and then around September it started getting bigger on my hand. Now in the past 3 or 4 months, I have a rash on my left forearm and some on my right arm. On my right hand there is a very large spot that is red and bumpy near the thumb. There is also a smaller one on the right side of the wrist area that is very bumpy and dry. On my right arm all that are present are white patches where my skin is discolored but not red or bumpy. My left arm has a large white patch (about 1 inch by 3 inches) and this has some red bumps around the outside of the shape. There is some scabbing there because I got sick of it and itched like a mad man...bad, i know. And just last week I discovered that there is what appears to be a mole on my neck. The mole is next to a knew dark red bumpy rash. They all itch quite badly, but not all the time. I tried using hydrocortizone cream but it Answered by Ronna Connors 2 years ago.

Hi - could be psoriasis, but best to check with doctor. Psoriasis responds well to natural sunlight. If can't get into sunlight, UVB Phototherapy is very helpful.

Removing Beauty Mark?
Alica P thanks I actually went to the doctor about the crater thing he gave me Topicort LP cream to reduce the redness but he mentioned getting it crapped off not sure if i want to do that cause it sounds like I would end up having some scab on my face for some time i think i would prefer to just get all of them...
Asked by Magda Gressmire 2 years ago.
Ok so I recently discovered that i had some thing really small on my nose that looked almost like a little volcano (cause their was like an empty crater in the middle) what ever it is its the only like the width of a toothpick, I also have 3 toothpick width size beauty marks. If i went to the Dermatologist would he/she remove it right away or would i have to schedule another appointment for that and will i have to pay for each mark being removed if so how much do you think it will cost me?

Answered by Trista Levites 2 years ago.
I would have to see it to be sure. (you can always do this just post a link on your to photo-bucket or any) Dr's are great. My guess is they would want to schedule a time for you to come in (they would ask u ? on the phone, does it bleed or have fluid coming out of it, How long has it been there ETC. They would numb it up and take it off now, or if it was no biggie ( and there are several weird things cells can do as they divide. We need to watch them. If you want it off, dr will scrape it off and have it sent in for pathology. Gee then you might get some weird name it officially had I am an Esthetician, not a dr. although find a dermatologist's office and work with them. Make sure that if you don't want to your "specimen" to be sent off to the lab, you don't have to.If your dr feels like its no biigie your fine. if its mole like they will tell u the things to look for.

Don't...it was put there for a reason and getting it removed might cause a scar which could look bad!!!!! Besides anyone that has time to make fun of someones beauty mark is lame!!! Answered by Maris Orochena 2 years ago.
Removing a beauty mark because you don't like it will not be covered by insurance. Since its on your face I would not let a dermatologist do it, I would go to a plastic surgeon. You also need to ask yourself if they bother you enough to risk replacing them with a larger and possibly more noticeable scar. I've had multiple moles removed that were suspected to be cancerous and every single one of them left a pretty significant scar. If you're worried they're abnormal, go to a dermatologist. If you just don't like the look of them I'd go to a plastic surgeon. Answered by Pinkie Kinley 2 years ago.
ok, i got mine removed, what you do is you go to the doctor and they will send you to the hospital to get it removed. i got sent to hospital and they looked at it first to see if they can remove it. you can either have it cut off or have lazer done to take it off. goodluck Answered by Ninfa Hockema 2 years ago.

Has anyone cured there Keratosis Pilaris out there?
I want to know if anyone has actually got rid of it through home remedy, prescription, diet, or actions, and not by age, not by growing out of it. I'm actively trying to cure myself.
Asked by Pandora Vannover 2 years ago.
Treatment To treat keratosis pilaris patients can try several strategies to lessen the bumps. First, the patient can supplement the natural removal of dry skin and papules by using a loofah or another type of scrub showering or bathing. A variety of different over-the-counter (OTC) lotions, ointments, and creams can also be applied after showering while the skin is still moist and then several times a day to keep the area moist. Medicated lotions with urea, 15% alphahydroxy acids, or Retin A can also be prescribed by the dermatologist and applied one to two times daily. Systemic (oral) medications are not prescribed for keratosis pilaris. However if papules are opened and become infected, antibiotics may be necessary to treat the infection. Q:Are there any effective treatments for keratosis pilaris? A: Keratosis pilaris is a common skin disorder. Although it isn't serious, it can be frustrating because it's difficult to treat. Keratosis pilaris occurs most often in children. It results from the buildup of a protein called keratin in the openings of hair follicles in the skin. This produces small, rough patches — usually on the arms, thighs and face. The exact cause isn't known, but it may be associated with eczema. Keratosis pilaris typically causes no pain or itching. Treatment is directed at softening the keratin deposits in the skin and may include medicated creams containing urea or lactic acid. Even with treatment, this condition tends to remain for years. If associated with eczema, keratosis pilaris may improve with treatment of the underlying eczema. betamethasone dipropionate, Diprosone, Diprolene chloroxine-shampoo, Capitrol corticosteroids-topical desoximetasone-topical, Topicort, Topicort LP fluocinolone-topical oil, Derma-Smoothe/FS fusidic acid/hydrocortisone-topical halobetasol-topical, Ultravate hydrocortisone valerate, Westcort omega-3 fatty acids-oral, Coromega, Longs Fish Oil, Max Epa, Omega-3, Salmon Oil, Superepa pimecrolimus, Elidel pramoxine-hydrocortisone-cream, ointment, Enzone, Pramosone pramoxine-hydrocortisone-lotion, Pramosone, Zone-A tacrolimus ointment, Protopic tea tree oil-topical Answered by Yuko Shoumaker 2 years ago.
Usually women are the ones embarrassed by a skin condition but guys get self-conscious too. My keratosis pilaris really got to me in my late teens. I got made fun of by my so-called friends and became dptressed and withdrawn. Comments like, what's that leprosy stuff on your arms? I can't tell you how many dates and social outings I've missed because of keratosis pilaris. I always thought just what if I didn't have this. But thanks to this program I'm almost totally clear.
