DermTV How to Treat Under Breast Rashes Infections DermTV Epi 190
Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Rashes under the breast tend to occur if the skin of the lower part of the breast lies flat against the skin below the breast. That tends to happen at a certain time in life whether it's from age, gravity, from having had children or just from the way that you're built. Whether you know it or not, your skin perspires all the time but when skin lies flat against another layer of skin that perspiration or sweat can't evaporate and.
Moisture accumulates. When moisture accumulates in closed areas, like skin against skin, it promotes the growth of bacteria and other germs and that creates odors and that can lead to infections. The most common infections that occur in this context, on the under part of the breast, are yeast infections and bacterial infections. To help prevent this, very simply, after you shower treat this area with the same antiperspirant that you use under your arms. If that's not effective at sufficiently decreasing the sweating, then take a thin piece of cotton material and place that thin.
Piece of material under and in the fold below the breast on both sides to help absorb moisture. If you actually do develop a rash below your breast usually it manifests as itchy little red bumps with some oozing. Usually this is very uncomfortable. It's probably a yeast infection and the best way to treat it is with milk and water compresses and the instructions, for those is discussed in DermTV Episode 15. In addition, over the counter Mikonazol lotion applied very lightly two or three times a day, will often.
DermTV Very Itchy Fingers, a.k.a. Dishydrosis DermTV Epi '6
Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV. This may be the season for itchy skin, but chances are if it's your fingers that are itching, it's not because they're dry. Most of the time, itchy fingers are caused by a condition called Dishydrosis and the itch it causes can really drive you crazy. And it's not just itching that Dishydrosis causes You actually get little bumps on the bottom and sides of your fingers. And the bumps are actually tiny blisters. Dishydrosis literally means, bad sweating, and it used to be thought that these crazily itchy bumps.
Were filled with sweat. That's why it was named Dishydrosis. But the fluid isn't sweat it's actually serum, which is the clear fluid in your blood. The most common cause of Dishydrosis is extreme stress, although not every outbreak can be linked directly to a stressful situation. On a personal note, I can tell you that I've only experienced Dishydrosis once in my life. It was early in my medical training after a very stressful night of being up all night taking care of a lot of very sick patients. The next morning the hospital dermatologist was making rounds.
And I showed him my hands, and he said, Boy you must have had a really rough night. So. The itching and bumps both finally go away after a few days. As it gets better, there are these really interesting telltale little collars of dead flaky skin that peel off. Those tiny matchhead size collars of dead skin get larger. and then smaller. over a few days and are caused by the bubble of serum as it rises through the higher levels of the epidermis. It's like taking horizontal slices through a sphere.
Starting tiny at the bottom, then getting larger, and finally smaller again. To treat the itching and bumps, topical cortisone creams and antiitch lotions with menthol are best. If that doesn't stop the itch, cold water can usually give temporary relief, but never try to stop the itching with hot water. Even though hot water feels good and stops the itch, it also causes the itch to come back worse a few minutes later. After the itch and bumps are gone, the flaking skin can continue for a week. It can be camouflaged with a moisturizer,.
Can A Yeast Infection Cause Swollen Lymph Nodes
Good day, Eric Bakker here again with another question, a frequently asked question regarding yeast infections. Does yeast infection cause swollen lymph nodes Swollen lymph nodes are a result of a problem with your immune system. There could be many reasons why you have swollen lymph nodes, and where you have the swollen lymph nodes. A common place is the cervical lymph nodes around the neck. You can also have swollen lymph nodes in the groin, around the armpits, so there's various areas where you can commonly get them. Cervical ones are quite common with people.
My questions to you would be do you get night sweats with these swollen lymph nodes Do you have altered appetite or weight loss First thing that you would do is to get a blood test done. Have a complete blood count and have all the white cell parameters, in particular, to see if there's any infectious disease going on. Swollen lymph nodes can also commonly occur with food allergies, I've noticed. Food intolerances or food allergies can occur there. Whenever you've got a weakened immune system, you're going to be more prone to a yeast infection. I would not believe that a yeast infection.
Directly causes swollen lymph nodes, but they would occur as a secondary consequence to a weakened immunity. Swollen lymph nodes need checking out. There could be many different types of problems. You could've picked up an acute herpes problem. It could be something even like Leukemia, so it's very important for you, particularly if it's a recurring problem, you've had it for a long time, is to get checked out carefully by your doctor for swollen lymph nodes to see exactly what this problem is. In many cases, however, these things are selflimiting and acute and they disappear. I've seen it.
Can I Get A Yeast Infection From Dirty Gym Equipment
Good day there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher with another question I get asked from time to time. Can I get a yeast infection from dirty gym equipment I've been getting a few of these dirty questions lately. Can I get an infection from a dirty towel Can I get an infection from a dirty toilet seat or dirty gym equipment or dirty Jacuzzis or dirty whatever I think it's important for you to look at the fact that you need to understand it's not about catching illness from something. It's about building up your resistance so.
You don't become susceptible to different diseases. There are always paranoid people that walk around not touching handles of doors, not willing to walk around airports or public places in fear of disease. So fear is not a good thing. People that have got strong, powerful, vibrant immune systems don't usually get sick. It's the weak people, the susceptible people that get sick. I often draw a line on a piece of paper when I get a new patient in and explain that we've got susceptibility on one side and we've got resistance on the other. So when this seesaw.
Becomes tipped, for example, once resistance increases susceptibility drops. And once susceptibility increases resistance drops. And the little triangle here in the middle, the fulcrum, I write the word stress on that triangle. And we've also got things that push the triangle one way or the other. So stress, for example, not sleeping enough, smoking and drinking alcohol, arguing with people or being angry, these are all what I call health busters. And these things decrease your resistance by increasing your susceptibility. They reduce your immune system's power. Health builders, on the other hand, are things you do to nourish and build health. Eating.
Good foods, getting enough sleep, being at peace with yourself and other people, exercising, drinking pure water, breathing nice and slowly and deeply, meditating, relaxing these are all health building events that are going to increase your resistance. So I think these are important concepts which I'd rather you look at than living in a constant fear of catching some kind of disease. It's not a good thing. Medicine's full of fear. We're told if we don't get injections and vaccines all the time or take drugs, we're going to get sick. So I tend to call this the sick building business.
I can't see why they call it the health care business. So you need to think carefully about those concepts. Taking drugs is not the answer to getting better. The answer's in your hand by increasing your resistance and decreasing your susceptibility. So don't live in fear of catching disease. All right So I hope that answers your question. What was your question again Can I get an infection from dirty gym equipment You potentially could but you wouldn't exercise on equipment that's dirty that you would have a concern about anyway. And remember don't live in the fear factor. It's not a good way.
Can I Get A Yeast Infection From A Public Shower
Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher. And another question for you coming your way regarding yeast infections. Can I get a yeast infection from a public shower I'm not sure what you mean by yeast infection for a public shower, but I think that you mean an athlete's foot or toenail fungus. You're certainly more susceptible if you're going to walk around bare foot in public facilities, particularly if you don't dry your feet properly and put clean socks on. I've been involved in gym for many years of my life and have never had athlete's foot.
From the gym. I have known people who've complained to me about athlete's foot who frequent gyms. I tell you what, I think a key thing in this situation is to make sure that you always have clean cotton socks, you have multiple pairs of shoes, you rotate shoes, and when you come home, you take those socks and shoes off. You don't walk around with socks a lot. It's people who tend to wear sneakers or shoes and socks all the time and particularly guys who drink beer or eat pizza or have yeasty or sweet foods who tend to have smelly sort.
Of sweaty bodies and don't dry themselves properly. They're much more prone to a fungal yeast infection of the feet. So I don't think you would catch other kinds of yeast infections from showers apart from infections of the lower extremities. You wouldn't get a vaginal infection from a public shower nor would you get a throat infection or a mouth infection. So I think we're talking about a foot infection. So if you're concerned and you've been to a public shower, make sure you dry your feet properly and put clean cotton socks on. And a clever trick is to put one.
Or two drops of tea tree oil in your shoe rub them around your feet. And the best tea tree oil is the Australian tea tree oil. Don't be fooled. Melaleuca alternifolia, or the Australian tea tree oil, is the only tea tree oil to use. There are a lot of scam products on the market that claim to be Australian tea tree oil, but they're not. So make sure it's the real Aussie tea tree oil. So I hope that answers your question about the infections in the public showers.
Diaper Rash Treatment Parents
Even if you're super vigilant about changing your baby's diaper, you probably won't be able to dodge diaper rash forever. With a few simple strategies you can clear it up quickly. To keep the rash clean change your baby's diaper as soon as you realize it's wet or dirty. Even mild baby wipes can irritate sore skin. So use just water and a washcloth or soft paper towel to gently wipe the area. When you are done, if you have time, let your baby roam around without a diaper to allow the rash to dry out. Just be sure to put a.
Waterproof mat underneath your baby in case he pees. If you're short on time shake a little corn starch based baby powder into your palm away from baby and apply it to his bottom. Finish by applying a thick coat of diaper cream all over to form a barrier between the baby's skin and the diaper. Finally, watch for anything unusual. If your baby gets a rash all over his bottom he could be allergic to the diaper itself. So switch to a different brand. If he develops blisters call your doctor. They can signal if it's strep or staph infection.
