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,.
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.
How to Identify a Yeast Infection
How to Identify a Yeast Infection At some time in your life, you will probably need to know what a yeast infection looks like. A yeast infection will have different characteristics depending on which body part it has attacked. In most cases, it looks like a patchy red rash that is not raised at all. After a while, this rash can generate pus. Babies usually get yeast infections in their mouths, where the fungus finds a wet, enclosed space in which to live. This type of yeast infection often resembles a layer of white,.
Milky mucus over a red area of the skin. When the mouth is in this condition, it makes drinking and eating difficult and painful. Babies and children still in diapers may also develop a yeast infection from the wet, warm environment. The more vigilant you are in changing the diaper, the more likely your child can avoid a yeast infection. Dry clothing is key to keeping yeast infections at bay. The yeast infection on a baby's bottom will look similar to the red patches of rash mentioned earlier in the article.
Yeast infections can also occur in the skin between fingers and toes. In this case, it will look red and dry and feel quite irritated. Sweaty socks can often contribute to this problem, so go for socks that provide a looser fit and allow your feet to have some circulation. When found in the ear, a yeast infection looks like a standard ear infection, causing the ear to look red or swollen. There may be a cottony discharge that comes from the affected ear. A vaginal yeast infection has to be the most well known type of yeast infection. Up to.
75 of many women suffer from this condition at least once in their lives. It is important to know what this kind of yeast infection looks like. Often, you will notice a red patch of skin that looks inflamed and swollen. The soft tissues surrounding the vagina may also become swollen and irritated. Excessive dryness of the vaginal area is another indicator that you may have a yeast infection. Other Symptoms of Yeast Infections Vaginal yeast infections also present with a host of other symptoms. A white, thick discharge will most likely occur this will look different from the normal discharge a woman experiences.

Athletes Foot Toe Fungus Ben Wehrli, DPM
Athletes foot is a rash on the skin of the foot and it's the most common fungal skin infection. Dr. Benjamin Wehrli of Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, explains the symptoms of foot fungus. Foot fungus is something that's you know obviously been around a long time and you hear the term athletes foot and what not but essentially it's all the same, you know what happens is you have normal colonization of fungus on your skin I mean it's around in the atmosphere, it's everywhere you go, when your feet sweat or are you know don't allow to air out, sometimes.
That fungus can thrive and grow. If you have any breaks in the skin whether it's from your skin getting too wet we call it maceration or any other breaks in the skin that fungus can invade it and cause an infection. Itchy, burning feet that's a pretty common complaint, it can be flaky a lot of people will start to itch in between their toes and they just think it really itches and it doesn't go away, those are probably signs of fungus. Redness slight redness to the skin can be a sign of fungus. It is contagious you can get fungus.
From anybody but if you have athletes foot, they obviously you're going to have more fungus around in the environment. I tell people to wear sandels if they're showering in community showers, things like that to help prevent it. Obviously sharing shoes and things like that predisposes you to having a higher number of fungus in there and increases your chance of getting it. Dr. Wehrli explains toe fungus. Toe fungus or onychomycosis when it starts to invade the nail we find typically comes initially from a tinea pedis or an athletes.
Foot or you know a foot fungus and so what happens is it's there and it can start to colonize underneath the nail and into the nail. It can be very tough to get rid of but what we have is different treatments that we use, one is a topical antifungal that will help stop the athletes foot. There is pills, Lamisil Sporanox, multiple pills that you can take. They work pretty well, they're pretty efficient in getting rid of it, the down side is that it can raise your liver function test and so it's something to be a little concerned.
With and watch. There's topical nail treatments like Pinlac or Formula 3 and then there's laser treatments. What we find is that we can get rid of the fungus and once we kill it, it takes probably about nine months for your nail to grow out and have a clean nail under there. The risk is that it reinfects the nail so I think a lot of the treatment that we talk about now are more on the preventative nature so I usually have somebody that has had nail fungus and we've cured it, do a topical antifungal to kind of decrease the number.
Of fungus that are there and then I have them do a topical once a day treatment on their nail and they just do that for life. At risk patients could have complications from toe fungus. With toe fungus or onychomycosis one thing that we worry about is that the nail becomes very thick and it can become painful. Most people that don't have normal sensation in their feet when they start to rub and cause problems will know it and will stop wearing the shoes and seek medical attention. Diabetic patients if they get thick in nails and they.
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.
Do I Have Eczema or Ringworm
Do I have eczema or ringworm Both cause red, itchy skin. But ringworm causes round or oval rashes with raised edges and a flat center that may or may not have scaling, whereas eczema can come in round patches or irregular ones. I know they look the same. I want to know how to know what I have. Ringworm tends to have the raised outer edge, whereas eczema tends to be equally rough all over the broken out area. Ringworm as it spreads tends to clear in the center, whereas eczema.
Doesn't. So it is probably ringworm if it looks better on the inside than the edge. Ringworm can be spread by rubbing the affected area with a towel and then somewhere else, or picking it up by rubbing against an infected person or animal. You know it is ringworm if you had it on one arm and now have it other places. Eczema can affect both hands or both arms. Yeah, but it won't spread like a bad rash. Actually, ring worm is a bad rash. Ringworm is a fungal infection. Eczema is an autoimmune condition, so eczema does not.
Spread, though ringworm can. How do I tell the difference Short of a medical test HydroCortisone will help reduce eczema itch, whereas they will worsen ringworm rashes. I do not have any on hand to try. Eczema improves if you use alcoholfree moisturizers, whereas that won't make much difference with ringworm. How can I get rid of it Ringworm clears up after a week or so of antifungal medication taken orally or on the skin, whereas eczema won't react to that treatment. Does athlete's foot treatments kill it There are over the counter antifungal medicines to treat it, yes, whereas over the counter.
Stuff aside from hydrocortisone is not available for eczema. How do you prevent it Eczema is triggered by allergies or stress, but you cannot give it to someone else, and you cannot spread it across the body. Your doctor might give you something to reduce the breakouts. I heard wool clothing, excessive bathing, harsh soaps and contact dermatitis make it worse. Yeah, and the new definition of a bad day is getting ringworm and poison ivy at the same time. Eczema is most common in middle aged men, ringworm in children, so you know.
