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.
How to Treat a Dry Scalp DermTV Epi 482
When people think they have a dry scalp it's usually because they see white flakes. But did you know there's virtually no such thing as a dry scalp Let me tell you what it really is and how to fix it. In the DermTV episode on dry facial skin, I explained that flaking on the face, which can look like dry skin, is often dandruff. Sure, the skin on your face can be dry and therefore flaky, especially on your cheeks, but in other places it's often actually dandruff. But what about flaking on your scalp.
Is that a dry scalp, or is it dandruff again This one's easy, because 99 of the time it's not dry skin on your scalp it's almost always dandruff. You see, if you're not bald, if you have hair on your scalp, it's almost impossible to have dry skin there. So if you see flaking on your scalp, it's actually dandruff even if you see flaking that looks just like the flaking from dry skin. Here, it's the result of excess oil, not on the surface of the scalp, but underneath it.
That excess oil causes inflammation which results in a little bit of redness, a little bit of swelling, and then causes the skin to be shed prematurely. while on the other hand, normal skin cells fall off on time and invisibly. But when the skin cells fall off early, they don't have a chance to separate from each other completely so they fall off in tiny mini sheets which are the flakes that you see. Well that's really good news, because if it were dry skin, how could you ever apply a moisturizer to your scalp.
Without really messing up your hair Fortunately, the treatment of dandruffinduced scalp flaking is easily accomplished with shampoos, so we usually don't need to apply lotions or creams to your scalp. Instead, buy an overthecounter shampoo whose active ingredient is either tar, salicylic acid, zinc, or selenium and use it daily for 57 days. To use it, lather it up for a minute, then rinse out, and then lather up again for a half a minute before rinsing a final time. That will usually control the dandruff so you can then use the shampoo less frequently.
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.
DIY Itchy Scalp Dandruff Treatment
Is your scalp itchy Do you have dandruff Ew. I'm kidding. Actually, dandruff is really common amongst all hair types. Even animals can get dandruff in their fur, you know, sometimes. So don't feel bad if you have it. So if you have dandruff I'm assuming you wanna get rid of it, right Well, sometimes it's not dandruff. Sometimes it's just product buildup. You need a clarifying shampoo to remove the buildup, but if it is dandruff, then it's usually a scalp disorder or a fungus that causes your skin to react and.
Itch and flake. And you need to get a medicated shampoo in order to treat it. If it's really serious, you might wanna see a dermatologist to see what you can do. If it's mild though, you might be able to treat it at home using Listerine guys. Weird. I thought so too, but actually Listerine, back in the day, was used to prevent infection during surgery, then it became a mouthwash. And now we're going to use the ingredients to fix our itchy scalps. Yay. Okay, this is all you need.
You wanna get a spray bottle. And you can find these at, I don't know, CVS, $0.10 cents. I'm just joking but, nothing's $0.10 cents anymore. I don't remember. They're really cheap. The little travel size things. Or you can just use like an empty bottle of something else but you need to put it in a spray bottle. Or a cotton swab. You can use those, too. It needs to be the yellow Listerine, okay It cannot be like the green one, or the purple one, or the pink one it needs to be the yellow one cuz that has the, you know, the,.
The right ingredients for this science stuff. Okay. Take your hair out and what you wanna do is with the cotton swab or the spray bottle, is you wanna start spraying it directly onto the scalp. Now, it's okay if it gets on your hair. However, protect the length of your hair, because it dos have alcohol in it, and you don't wanna dry out your hair, unless you just don't care, then just go ahead and pour the bottle over your scalp. Well, you really don't want to just, like, pour the bottle,.
Though, because then you're just going to waste all this Listerine. It's, there's no point. Just save your Listerine, put it in a spray bottle. And then massage it on your scalp. Leave it on your scalp for maybe 1015 minutes. Okay Now, when I tested this out, I didn't feel any burning or tingling or anything like that. However, if you do have scratches on your scalp just be aware it might sting, so you might not want to use it. But if you don't mind the stinging then just, you know,.
Know that it's not going to hurt you. Now while we're waiting for the 10 minutes, what's happening is the Listerine is. You know battling the yeast and the fungus and all you know, those bad things that cause the flaking and redness. So after ten, 15 minutes you can go ahead and wash and condition with your regular shampoo and conditioner, or you can use your medicated shampoo if you want to. And for this process what you want to do is repeat every single day for a week. Or until you see an improvement.
So I wash my hair. You know there is other things too that Listerine helps to treat like animal's problem like I mentioned earlier bald spots, toe fungus, if you have you know, toe fungus issues you can soak your toes. It's really just an awesome product actually. So afterwards, when you're done washing it out, just go ahead and comb your hair out and style as usual. And after a week or so you'll notice you have some soft, beautiful hair. No flakes, I mean depending on the level. I mean this might not work for you.
