I couldn't find what type of ointment ( prescription or OTC) what you named was. If you have scaling, red bumps, flaky white skin (like dandruff), it MAY be Psoriasis. Psoriasis an inhereited medical disease that can be treated by a number of different methods depending on the severity. Go to a Dermatologist, and/ or seek another opinion.

Aloe. My grandparents kept an aloe plant on the porch just for me when I was a kid. You may also want to try Eucerin, it's not too expensive and you can get a small tube of it to keep in your car or something. Answered by Van Vanoflen 1 year ago.

The dermatologist said she didn't know what it was cause she couldn't see anything. Well she is blind! But it's worse now. Any other suggestions? Answered by Delois Dickinson 1 year ago.
Try applying a cool compress to the areas! It will help with the itching. Try not to take hot showers and before drying off apply some baby oil and then towel off but don't rub to hard. Drink a ton of water and try some cortisone 2%. You can get it over the counter. If your sikn has sores from scraching then try some medicated Neosoprin it works really good but its drying as well so ues sparingly when it get bad. Hope you feel better.

I was diagnosed with Prurigo Nodularis but...?
I have found that the Thalidomide did not work. Also the cortizone cream did not work ( also I have heard that prolonged use can stunt your growth).

Asked by Rosetta Assante 1 year ago.
I went to a dermatologist and found out that my open wounds and scars were due to PN. I have a lot of open cut or scabs that never fully heal because I pick and scratch, which is supposedly due to the PN. However, I never thought the scratching had to do so much with the itching, but the annoyance of them being there. I have tried a great number of treatments and none seem to have an effect. Is there something I can do to stop picking for good? It's very hard to stop picking. Is it still PN if I do not feel the itch? Can anyone suggest anything? (I know sun is important and is suppose to work but where I live it's rarely sunny). Answered by Pei Stride 1 year ago.

Initial treatment is often potent prescription steroid creams. If these help, a milder cream can be used for longer-term control. Antihistamine creams (Zonalon, Pramoxine) or pills (Atarax, Periactin) are often added for additional relief. Intralesional steroid injections, anti-depressant pills, and non-prescription Zostrix cream helps many of those not improved with the usual treatment. Severe and resistant cases can be controlled with cryotherapy (freezing the sores with liquid nitrogen spray), oral steroids or PUVA. Of course, try not to scratch the spots. In resistant cases blood tests and biopsy of the sores may be needed to look for a cause driving the PN. Answered by Stan Hustead 1 year ago.

Prurigo nodularis is a condition that we know very little about. Most doctors treat it with potent prescription steroid creams, antihistamine creams (Zonalon, Pramoxine) or pills (Atarax, Periactin).

Answered by Karyl Clevenger 1 year ago.
he lacks energy. I find that when i get tired in the afternoon at work its cause im lacking energy. i find the best cure, go for an hrs walk every day either after noon or morning. also any cardio workouts. anything to get the heart pumping. this will carry more oxygen to the brain, get the blood flowing and metabolisim going. trust me he will feel a lot better. but he may need encouragement and help. so maybe as his friend you should join him. do something with him. even if its a simple walk for an hr. you should find he sleeps better at night and feel refreshed in the morning and have a longer attention span in afternoon. also doesnt sound like he works if he sleeps till noon and then the afternoons. he needs to get active and stop being so lazy. plain and simple!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Answered by Sondra Winters 1 year ago.
OK, there is NO simple answer here. If it is bothering him, he should see a doctor. It could be a great many things. Thyroid problem (kind of rare in men, but still happens), anemia, stress (good and bad can cause sleeping disorders), sleep apnea, etc. The only thing that can really be done is for him to have a sleep study. I wish him luck. God Bless! Answered by Alfonso Tenant 1 year ago.
Perhaps he stays up late? Sometimes people who do very little to no exercise and eat a poor diet can also exhibit fatigue like this. Depression is another possibility or any of the various sleeping disorders. Why don't you talk with him and see if anything is troubling him. Answered by America Gillham 1 year ago.
he could be unhappy or he could be just tired... that sounds like a stupid answer, but sometime when you sleep too much, you get really really tired. You should ask him why he sleeps so much. If it is because he is depressed then he should go see a doctor. If it is just because he is tired, then tell him to make a 9 hr. or so sleep night from like midnight to 9 or so. Answered by Rozanne Leggitt 1 year ago.
It's one of the downfalls of depression. When I'm in a low (down mood) I sleep tons. I can't control it, and it sucks. You should talk to him about getting on some prozac or something to help deal with these lows. Answered by Russell Meads 1 year ago.

Asked by Katia Vay 1 year ago.
I do not want this condition. I just think that I have it. Trust me itching so bad that I cannot drive and have to pull over on the side of the road to scratch is not fun. I have been at work for 7 1/2 hours tonight and have been looking into this and it is the only thing that makes sense. It was pointed out to me in another question I asked earlier tonight. The only question I have is for anyone that has had this, how do you stop the itching? Answered by Dominique Terheggen 1 year ago.
Most of the more effective treatments are prescription in nature: Ursodeoxycholic Acid - UDCA (Actigall, Urso) UDCA is one of the most important treatments for ICP. Its natural bile acid composition improves maternal liver function by replacing the more toxic bile acids in bloodstream. Studies have shown that it also improves bile acid transport across the placenta, which may greatly reduce the risk of stillbirth (intrauterine death of baby)associated with ICP. Vitamin K Vitamin K therapy is a suggested course of treatment for all ICP patients whose PT levels are low. Choleastasis reduces the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins which can lead to Vitamin K deficiency, possibly resulting in serious complications including hemorrhaging in the mother and intra-cranial hemorrhaging for the infant. Oral, water-soluble Vitamin K supplements are recommended in mothers when needed and the newborn should receive an injection of Vitamin K. Breast milk contains little to no amounts of Vitamin K and therefore should not be relied upon for treatment purposes. Steroids Raised bile acids increase the risk of premature labor. This threat coupled with the fact that all ICP babies should be delivered by 36-37 weeks often prompts the usage of steroids to increase the probability of lung maturity at birth. Research is strong that steroids given before 32 weeks gestation have a profound impact on fetal lung maturity. In addition to improving fetal lung maturation, there is some indication that steroids may also curtail some of the itching associated with ICP by suppressing hormone production. Also there is DOXEPIN (Topical) with a brand name of Zonalon. Short couse of Antihistamine. Do not use any cholestorol reducing agents as they have been found dangerous. I'm afraid most of the antipruetic over the counter remedies will likely not be greatly helpful. You could try oatmeal baths which are used in the hospital for severe itching, clear caladryl, lotion, extra strength benadryl cream, Milk in bath, peppermint in bath, Rub Vicks on your skin the menthol relieves the itch. There are many others but I have listed those I think will work best for you. I would guess your physician will prescribe something at your upcoming appointment, if you can wait that long. Good Luck and take care. Answered by Alla Hatley 1 year ago.
How far along are you? You do not want this condition as there are a lot of risks involved with it. You usually will deliver at 38 weeks. The cause is unknown but to be diagnosed with it you will have blood tests and ultrasounds. EDIT: Sorry-didn't mean to sound like you wanted it! It just is a scary thing. But you definitely could have it, your symptoms sound very severe. Answered by Deetta Duvel 1 year ago.

Asked by Darwin Tomita 1 year ago.
do you have a compormised immune system? if so... People with compromised immune systems may not develop antibodies to the mites and may develop crusted Norwegian scabies. In this case, the scabies are taking over. These cases require additional treatment options to ensure a complete kill. Ivermectin is a single oral treatment of choice in these patients combined with any other topical treatment. ----------*---------- Medications  Topical Permethrin: Another pesticide, lacks carcinogenic and teratogenic testing in humans although animal tests showed no signs of carcinogenic or teratogenic effects. Toxicity may resemble allergic reactions. Eurax (USP Crotamiton) Malathion Applied for 24 hours; effective in killing both adults and eggs. Lindane (Kwellada): For use with patients where permethrin has failed or is contraindicated. Lindane is FDA approved as safe and effective when used as directed for the second-line treatment for both scabies and lice. Serious side effects are rare and have almost always resulted from product misuse. Lindane is registered for use in 50 countries, with restricted-use status in 33 of these countries. The latter includes the U.S. and Canada, which support public health uses of pharmaceutical lindane but no longer allow agricultural applications. Lindane should be washed off with warm, and not hot, water to avoid absorption through the skin. There is some evidence that a 10% sulfur ointment in petroleum jelly applied topically is effective. It is cheap and readily available over-the-counter. It also has the advantange of being able to be used in pregnant women and infants under two months of age. Neem oil is deemed very effective in the treatment of scabies although only preliminary scientific proof exists which still has to be corroborated, and is recommended for those who are sensitive to permethrin, a known insecticide which might be an irritant. Also, the scabies mite has yet to become resistant to neem, so in persistent cases neem has been shown to be very effective. Tea tree oil in one study was more effective than commercial medications against the scabies mite in an in vitro situation.   Oral A single dose of ivermectin has been reported to cure scabies. In 1999, a small scale test comparing topically applied Lindane to orally administered ivermectin found no statistically-significant differences between the two treatments. As ivermectin is easily administered (not requiring rub down of whole body like lindane or permethrin twice per treatment), compliance is much better. Ivermectin is used in eradication programs of many parasites of both human and animal.  Preventing reinfestation All family and close contacts should be treated at the same time, even if asymptomatic. Cleaning of environment should occur simultaneously, as there is a risk of reinfection. Therefore it is recommended to wash and hot iron all material (such as clothes, bedding, and towels) that has been in contact with scabies infestation. Cleaning the environment should include: Vacuuming floors, carpets, and rugs. Disinfecting floor and bathroom surfaces by mopping. Cleaning the shower/bath tub after each use. Daily washing of recently worn clothes, towels and bedding in hot water, drying in a hot dryer and steam ironing.  Itchiness during treatment Options to combat itchiness include antihistamines such as cetirizine. Prescription: Doxepin (Sinequan - oral or Zonalon - topical) or Hydroxyzine (Atarax).

Scabies On Back Answered by Loyd Brockus 1 year ago.
I think it can be different approach for different people! Permethrin made them 'mad', it came back stronger. First ivermectin: they calmed a BIT. Tried Naturasil....some itch relief only.....THEN to a nutritionist who is prescribing Ivermectin again bit stronger dose and intervals are longer coupled with a whole body parasite cleansing detox with only vegetables, protein powder, enzymes, diatomaceous earth, minerals: all at very strict intervals. Already seeing a big difference so I'm sticking with a nutritionist from now on for any problems! Thank the Lord! Answered by Freddie Hoo 1 year ago.
OIL OF OREGANO-is what you want. I went to dermatologist and had a biopsy-Lamisil pills,creams etc for over a year-no cure. Beleive me, I prayed hard for a cure. This is it, beleive me for skin conditions, candida, allergies everything.The Bible calls it Hyssop-a cleanser for everything, but, really, mis-translation-its Oregano. The least expensive and undiluted (this is powerful and you have to dilute it or it burns!) is from Oreganoworld.com: $19-1oz/free ship. I just bought a 2nd bottle-you can give them a call-nice people,too. This cured that dumb rash in a matter of days-and stops all itching-completely. Kills bacteria, parasites, viruses-everything. Please do yourself a favor and order some. You must dilute it-take by mouth and on the rash. It won't hurt you. I was going crazy and it cured me. Jesus Christ is good-HE told me the cure in an interesting way-I could hardly beleive it was for me-I turned on Coast to Coast radio-at a time I usually don't listen to-it was 'any can call about anything night'-and, the man calls in just as I tune in: and said, 'Oil of Oregano will cure rashes-just about anything." I was shocked and it took me a couple more weeks-till I reluctantly checkec it out-figured I'd tried everything else-might as well-give it a shot. I found the least expensive-undiluted-full strength-the real thing-wow! its amazing. This is your answer, I wish you the best. Answered by Angila Odneal 1 year ago.
My daughter battled with it too. I got to the point where I went into each room and ANYTHING that she had been with was washed with super hot water and bleach if possible. washcloths, towels, pillow cases, stuffed animals, sheets, blankets, clothes, the pillows on the couches and so on. I sprayed her mattress with a product from Norwex made for mattresses, and I washed her pillows in my front loader washing machines sanitary cycle. We had been to the dr 5 times. After I got crazy with the cleaning, they were gone!! Very frustrating though. Good luck. Answered by Anitra Patuel 1 year ago.
