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.
Why is My Belly Button Brown After Pregnancy
Why is my belly button brown after pregnancy Maybe you have not had enough time after having a newborn to properly clean out all the lint. I have to bathe more than once a day because the baby peed, puked, pooped or put some other bodily fluid on me. If you just had the baby, the linea negra or dark line may not have faded yet. What causes that Linea negra is a dark line on the abdomen and even belly button you get due to all the melanin inducing hormones during pregnancy, sometimes causing dark splotches on the face.
And dark nipples too. I did not get a dark line like that. Around three quarters of women do get it, and it could lead to a dark belly button until all those hormones flush out once the baby is born. The kid is out and about, trying to roll around the floor. Remember that pregnancy stretches the abdomen immensely. That's where stretch marks come from it is bruising of the skin from the pregnancy. It is actually scarring. Even body builders can get stretch marks, also known as permanent scars, from growing their muscles too fast.
So you think my belly button is scarred. The skin underneath it is, yes, which could leave it brown even after it goes back to being an innie from being an outie during the pregnancy. After all, if it had to pop out to make room for the baby, discoloration afterward is reasonable. What can I do about it During pregnancy, you can try to fight fluid retention and weight gain beyond what is healthy so the body does not stretch too much. Moisturizers can help reduce it, but you cannot reverse.
It. A lot of beauty creams would say otherwise. But you're asking me what to do about it. If it is not linea negra that is going to fade by six months post partum, it is scarring that won't. Then you think skin lightening cream won't make a difference. Tanning would make more of a difference. The white lines left under the folds of flesh would make it look weirder. Try washing the skin with soap and water and making sure it dries thoroughly, just in case the dark patches are due to fungal or yeast infections of the skin.
Side Effects Of Fluconazole
Thank you for tuning into my tutorial today. Today I'm going to talk about Fluconazole. Fluconazole is a pharmaceutical antifungal drug. It's also known by the name of Diflucan. Fluconazole is also present in a vaginal cream called Canesten that many women tend to use. I've seen many patients over the years who've taken Diflucan. Some with reasonably good success, but in most case, the drug has been taken recurrently with very, very poor longterm results. The best result you're going to get from any pharmaceutical drug usually is the very first time you take it. The body's not used to the.
Drug. It will have a powerful effect and give the desired result. But then what happens is the drug is discontinued, so then the symptoms come back, and the drug is used again and again and again. And eventually, the body builds resistance to Diflucan. The resistance is well documented. I've seen some patients who take this drug weekly or monthly for years on end with bad results. And in many cases, they end up with significant side effects, particularly hepatic or liver side effects because Diflucan affects Phase II or the glucoronidation pathway of the liver and it can make a person quite nauseous.
Or sick. They can get skin reactions. They can get headaches. They can get insomnia. They can get a whole range of different side effects from Diflucan. I've got a pharmaceutical drug guide here and I'm going to read out some of the common side effects of Diflucan or fluconazole. Side effects include gastrointestinal upset, headaches, elevated liver function test, abnormal vision, skin odor, skin rashes, hot flashes, weakness, thirst, shaking in the body, polyuria, which means urinating a lot, renal pain or pain in the lower pain, kidney pain, dizziness, seizures, skin itching, sweating, fevers,.
Drug eruptions, more skin rashes, sleeping disturbances and insomnia, nervousness, pain, female sexual dysfunction, menstrual disorders, respiratory disorders, deafness, heartburn, high blood pressure, liver damage. Why the hell would you want to take a drug that creates all these problems just to give you some temporary relief from a vaginal yeast infection or some kind of a yeast infection you might have There are natural ways you can get on top of these infections without resorting to drugs. Have a look at yeastinfection for some natural solutions. If you're thinking about an antifungal drug and you want to get some.
Results but don't want the side effects with it, have a look at the product I developed called Canxida. It's going to be more powerful than fluconazole. You don't need to take it for years on end. You're not going to get all of these side effects that I've just read out here. It's certainly worth a shot. Think about it. If you're going to take fluconazole, take it once, but don't take it recurrently. There's no point in it. You're wasting your time doing that. You're only going to get drug resistance and also liver toxicity from.
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,.
Vaginal Discharge During Menopause
I need your input on vaginal discharge during menopause. When you're going through menopause, you'll have your period less often or less intensely before it finally shuts off. I know menopause isn't an off switch but more a slow fade. When you're going through menopause, you'll see similar shifts in vaginal discharge like white and sticky to dry right before your period, but you may not see the clear and slippery phase for ovulation. Because I might not ovulate. However, when you're going through menopause, there's still a chance you'll get pregnant.
And have a kid with a higher risk of health problems. Or multiples. As your eggs hit their expiration date, the body offsets it by releasing multiple eggs. What other vaginal discharge should I expect during menopause If it starts to smell sweet down there, you're probably developing diabetes especially so if the urine smells sweet and looks like syrup too. A rash of repeated yeast infections can be a symptom of diabetes too. And your odds of adult onset diabetes go up with age. What else should I know.
With age, the vaginal discharge goes down, which is why older women tend to need lubrication, since the body doesn't make as much. And while a lack of lubrication and make you more sensitive to yeast and bacterial infections, using too much lubrication can alter pH levels and do the same. You'll know you have one of those infections by the foul smelling discharge if it is bacterial and the fish smell with yellow and solid masses if yeast based. Fortunately, I haven't had to do a smell test to see what is wrong.
If you get red or brown vaginal discharge, you'll probably want to talk to a doctor. We already discussed how your period fades away at this age. Yes, but red blood that's constant indicates lesions or a serious infection, while brown blood can be a period that's not complete or internal bleeding. Okay, that's a reason to talk to the doctor. And just because you don't have to use birth control anymore doesn't mean you don't have to use birth control. Menopause is all natural birth control. Just because you can't get pregnant anymore doesn't mean you can't get a sexually.
