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 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.
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.

A cold sore can be annoying and painful, but is hardly ever harmful. The herpes virus will remain forever in your body though and can get reactivated at a later time. That's why you can get a cold sore over and over again. There isn't any treatment to get the virus out of your body.
So, what are the do's and don'ts when you've got a cold sore Don't touch the blisters and wash your hands regularly especially when you've touched the blisters by accident.

The virus can end up in the eye or near the genitals in that way and blisters may form in those places. Once the blisters have dried up, the virus can't be transmitted any longer.
Never hug a baby when you've got a cold sore. Babies can get seriously ill from from the herpes virus and can even die because it. That's the reason why it's also called the kiss of death. Sunlight, a reduced resistance, illness, menstruation, or stress can activate the herpes virus so a cold sore can show up. so a cold sore can show up. So avoid being exposed to the sun and use protective lip balm or sunblock on your lips to protect yourself against the sun. Keep your resistance up eat healthy food,.
Exercise regularly and get a good night's rest. Some people find comfort in putting the Vaseline or zinc oxide on their lips to ease the itching and pain. You could use antiviral creams and tablets. The cream hasn't been proven to reduce the symptoms of a cold sore though. Tablets could reduce the symptoms of a cold sore but only if you use them in a very early stage before the blisters have formed. Consult your family doctor when the blisters haven't disappeared after two weeks or when the inflammation spreads. In the last case, bacteria might have gotten.
