DermTV Itchy Bumpy Red Skin Chicken Skin Or Keratosis Pilaris DermTV Epi 161
Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. If I told you that I'm going to help you understand and treat your keratosis pilaris, you'd say, What's he talking about But if I told you that's a fancy medical term for chicken skin, which is that rough, itchy skin that occurs on the top and outer parts of some people's arms and also on the front of their thighs, then it might ring a bell. It's particularly common in teenagers and young adults, and it itches but, more importantly,.
It looks really funny, because you have all these little white studded bumps on your skin with pink skin in between. It's not dangerous but It certainly looks funny and doesn't feel good. This is another situation where exfoliants to the rescue, because these hard little bumps represent overgrowths of dead cells on the top of the hair follicle. All you have to do is literally dissolve them away with a chemical exfoliant, whichever one you use for your face, you can use on your arms wherever you have your chicken skin, and use it twice a day, and it will result over a period of.
Why Do I Have Zits on My Scalp
Why do I have zits on my scalp Technically, the scalp is skin. It is possible you have more than you realize, because your hair usually hides them. That does not tell me what to do about it. Putting too much moisturizer and products that make your shower smell like a rain forest can cause the scalp to break out. And that's assuming what you think are scalp zits are not an allergic reaction to the exotic things I cannot pronounce on the ingredient list. The ingredients are all natural. So is ebola, but that does not mean you want it. Remember that you can get moles on your.
Scalp just as you can on your face, though it is more common on your arms and legs. These are red and small, not big, brown and eliciting screams of horror. If you have red bumps on the head and neck that itch, I'm going to guess you have lice, not acne. If you've also got stubborn white bits on the hair that are hard to get out, those are nits, not dandruff. I'm not two. Your scalp produces oil just like the rest of your skin, but if you do not wash your.
Hair to rinse it away, you get an oily scalp that is as certain to cause a breakout as wearing tight sweaty gym shorts all day. You're mistaking me for my roommate. What can I actually do about it Dandruff shampoo actually contains salicylic acid, which clears both the oils and treats scalp acne if you have it. Be careful of using facial acne treatments on your hair because some of them will bleach your hair. Good point. I do not want to have to explain the random appearing white streaks in my hair.
You could try tea tree oil as a shampoo additive or on its own to try to treat the scalp breakout. Or just not use the shampoos intended for dry scalps. The red bumps could be due to a reaction to something, whether it is a wool cap or the dye in it. Conversely, you could have an infection called seborrheic dermatitis, where extra oil on the skin and yeas causes red bumps. So wearing a hat all day to hide the condition of my scalp may make the condition worse.
Assuming it did not trigger it in the first place. And that's assuming you didn't get an infection of the follicles. What could I do to treat that You may use standard shampoos with zinc or salicylic acid. You may just need a multivitamin with extra zinc, since a lack of that causes rashes and exacerbates hair loss. That's why some people shave their heads. You could get scalp bumps due to shaving your head, especially with a notsonew razor putting infectious agents in the skin. And I thought the worst part of the hair salon was the bill!.
Acanthosis Nigricans DermTV Epi 452
The skin condition called Acanthosis Nigricans fortunately is uncommon, but pseudo Acanthosis Nigricans unfortunately isn't. If you were formally schooled in Latin, you know exactly what I'm talking about. But if you weren't, stay tuned! Let's start with what Acanthosis Nigricans, which I'm going to refer to as AN in this episode. Start with what it looks like, which'll then make you want to know more. And just to make it a little more interesting, the real Acanthosis Nigricans and faux Acanthosis Nigricans, which is the more common Pseudo Acanthosis Nigricans, look essentially identical.
Since Acanthosis just means a thickening or overgrowth of the upper layer of your skin and Nigricans really means dark or black, if we put this together its really a descriptive term from which you expect to see a dark overgrowth or thickening of your skin. Acanthosis Nigricans appears as tan to dark brown velvety surfaced plaques with parallel lines which when even deeper look like velvety parallel ribs like the nap of carpeting. You usually get it on the parts of the body where skin tends to rub against skin,.
Such as underarms, neck and upper inner thighs, but it can occur in other areas as well. Because these brown, raised, unattractive patches and plaques don't itch or burn or in any other way bother you except cosmetically, which is personally important and a real quality of life issue, the medical importance of Acanthosis Nigricans is why it occurs and whether it reflects something important internally. Most cases of Acanthosis Nigricans are not true Acanthosis Nigricans, but fortunately the Pseudo form which occurs from being overweight. The real Acanthosis Nigricans comes from certain endocrine diseases.
Such as diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, other less common hormonal imbalances, But and most importantly, Acanthosis Nigricans can be a reflection of an internal cancer which most commonly are malignancies of the gastrointestinal tract, uterus and sometimes even the lung, prostate, breast or ovary. And last there are some people who have Acanthosis Nigricans with no apparent associated disease and are not overweight. For the first group whose Acanthosis is associated with obesity, endocrine problems or cancers, treating the underlying condition will result in a remarkable improvement of the Acanthosis, but what about those people who fortunately don't.
Do I Have Eczema or Psoriasis
I've got red, dry, itchy skin and a persistent rash. Do I have eczema or psoriasis Eczema usually arises before you start school. Psoriasis tends to show up in adulthood. I've had this since adolescence. So I guess it could be either one. Psoriasis tends to occur on the thicker skin on the body, such as on the palm, elbows, knees, soles of the feet, face and scalp. Eczema tends to occur on the face, neck, knees, ankles and the inside of the elbow. So both can cause rashes on my face, but only eczema will occur on my feet.
Kind of. Psoriasis and eczema both get worse with stress and when you're immune system is flared up when fighting a disease. Do they have the same cause Psoriasis is primarily an autoimmune disorder. Eczema tends to be an allergic reaction. How can I tell the difference Without paying to see a doctor. Eczema sometimes causes lesions and blisters, which is rarely seen with psoriasis. Eczema may have moist pustules, while psoriasis is always dry. Gross, gross, gross. I feel like I've got the plague. There's a lot you can do. Both eczema and psoriasis can be improved by using moisturizing.
Creams. Oh, man, I'll end up smelling like a girl. They've got eczema creams for babies, so you could just hit the baby aisle. And antihistamines help eczema. So I need to get drugged up on Benadryl. My parents gave that to me as a kid to make me sleep. I guess it's better than brandy. A doctor can prescribe ointments to treat either condition, no matter what you have. I just want to walk around during the day without wanting to wear a Phantom of the Opera mask. You should walk in the light of the sun. UV light can help clear up both.
Avoiding Shaving Irritation Mens Skin Care Tips
Regardless of which way you prefer to shave, there are a few steps you can take to get the best results. First, it's important to wash your face before you shave. Use a face wash, or better yet a facial scrub. This will remove oil, dirt, and dead skin that can block the razor's path, and prevent a smooth glide. You can further hydrate your hair by splashing your face with warm water or by soaking a towel with warm water and holding it against your skin for up to three minutes.
This really reduces the force you'll need to shave because it softens your hair and makes it easier to cut. Next, put on a great shave gel like this one. Re lather areas before you shave them a second or third time to help defend your skin against nicks and cuts. And always make sure to rinse your blades every few strokes to keep the blades from clogging up. Finally, shave your neck last of all, in order to give the gel more time to soften the hair there. The neck tends to have the most sensitive skin.
