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,.

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.

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 Hives Urticaria Treatments

Hi, my name is Molly. This tutorial covers how to treat hives. Hives are welts or wheals raised red bumps on the skin. And they're itchy. Yes, that does look like hives. The medical term for hives is urticaria. That's spelt URTICARIA. Urticaria. Which is Latin for the sting of a nettle. Just in case you needed to know. But most people call them hives. In most cases, hives are harmless but may sometimes be a symptom of something more serious. So if you've had any changes in your skin, it's always advisable to see your doctor.

In severe cases hives can obstruct breathing, which is a medical emergency. However, in most cases they are a harmless but bothersome condition. The hives appear and disappear quickly, usually within a few hours. And they itch a lot. Fortunately they leave no mark on the skin. Unless you scratch at them. So don't scratch. So how do you treat them In most cases the standard treatment is with antihistamines. Now, there are various types of antihistamines, some of which make you drowsy. These are the ones you want to take at night.

The new non sedating antihistamines may be taken during the day. You may also need to take more than one type of antihistamine to provide relief. Or take several in combination. There isn't one best antihistamine that works for everyone. Antihistamines can be purchased over the counter, although stronger ones need a prescription. For them to work, they need to be taken daily as their action is to prevent hives. Antihistamines don't cure hives, by the way, they only ease the symptoms. Use only the minimum dose to control your hives. Just enough for relief.

Why Do Bug Bites Itch

Here's a vexing question asked at picnics and beach parties everywhere Why do bug bites itch And the answer is They don't. Bug bites don't itch at all, sometimes you don't even feel them, and that's pretty amazing because what goes on under your skin when a bug bites you is horrifying. Alright, some insects, like certain kinds of ants, are venomous so their bites can itch because their venom contains formic acid, which can irritate and blister the skin. But let's talk about Nematocera, the suborder of insects that includes black flies and mosquitoes.

These bugs have a long bendable proboscis that they stick into you to drink your blood. The proboscis is made up of six different mouth parts. First you got the mandibles which are hooked and the two maxillae which are serrated like steak knives. These sharp bits go as deep as they can to make an opening for the other two mouth parts to pass through the labrum and the hypopharynx. Those are both long, hollow, flexible tubes and they wriggle around inside of you like a worm while the bug probes around for blood vessels.

Once it finds one, blood gets sucked up through the labrum, and saliva is ejected down through the hypopharynx. That saliva is an anticoagulant it stops your blood from clotting inside the bug's proboscis so that it can keep drinking. It is also the main vector for diseases that are transmitted by mosquitoes like Malaria and West Nile Virus. And it has one other awesome property you are probably allergic to it, and when you're allergic to something your body produces histamine, the protein that triggers inflammation and widens your capillaries to allow white blood cells to pass through them so that they can fight foreign.

Invaders. So, it's the histamine that makes you swell up and itch when you get a bug bite, just like it makes your eyes and nose itch during pollen season. We're not even sure why histamine needs to make you itchy in order to do its job. It might just be your body's way of telling you that something's wrong with your skin. But I'm pretty sure we all wish it would stop. So thanks for asking, and thanks to all of our Subbable subscribers who make this and everything you see here on SciShow possible. If you have a quick question that you'd like.


Laci Ladies, what's up, ladies Actually, this doesn't just apply to ladies. I've gotten so much email the past few years of people asking me how to shave their pubes and have basically always just said, Yeah, no, not gonna do that. Reason being that I don't want to be another one of those forces that pressures people to shave off their pubic hair. I know when I was younger I felt a lot of pressure to get rid of that shit. And on one occasion, I got such bad razor burn.

That I mumbling myself at the gynecologist worried that I had herpes. These days I kinda like pubic hair. I get excited by bushes the size of mount kilimanjaro. Yeah, I said it, haters gonna hate. And we all know what you gotta do about the haters, right Ignore the shit out of them. Which means that if deep down if you don't want to shave your pubes, if it just doesn't interest you, or you get really bad razor burn, or you're lazy, don't do it. I haven't shaved for months but maybe.

In a few weeks I'll decide, Hey, I want a different hairstyle. In which case, here are some things that I've found to help you shave your pubes and avoid the bumpy burny itchy red nasty horribleness. gentle music And before you ever pull out a razor the first thing you wanna do is give yourself a little trim. Get the hair nice and short. Then hop in the shower with a bath. And soak for five to ten minutes. Then take an exfoliator or a luffa and gently remove the dead skin cells from the triangle patch on top.

Close shave is the key to avoid irritation. So, removing all those dead skin cells first it's gonna help you get a little closer. So, in terms of shaving cream, I like to use the kind that's a gel to foam. You want something that's not too thin and something that's not too thick. And then your razor. So, your razor should be sharper than mine. And this is where you don't wanna skimp. You wanna have something that's really, really sharp. Triple blade, quadruple blade, built in chainsaw. This is not the time to pull out that rusty disposable.

That's been sitting in your shower tray for who knows how long. You want something intsense. Then with a very gentle pressure, don't push too hard, you wanna move the razor down in the direction that the hair is growing. Try not to go over the same area twice. That can cause irritation, ingrown hairs. This is why you need a sharp razor. I would advice not shaving really sensitive areas. They're really difficult to shave, easy to cut, and they're even more easily irritated. I have cut my labia before and oh my god.

Do with that what you will. Now, after the fact, pat dry. First, very thin layer of neosporin. Let it absorb, then add a good quality basic lotion that doesn't have any fragrance in it. Let that absorb and then powder. Oh! Not that much powder. And then pull on some boxers or a loose fitting panties, nothing too tight. So, that regime has worked pretty well for me. Everyone's different, though, so you kind of have to find what works for you. There are some different types of creams and gels out there.

None of them have worked for me, they might work for you. The thing that has worked for me though that I actually later ended up using as an alternative to shaving was hair removal creams. These don't get as close as a shave but they do remove the hair. All you do is put the cream on, wait five minutes, and then wipe it off. I'm lazy, so, it works for me. So, I think that's about the basics. If you're one of those people that you try lots of different things and you still find.

Why Does My Acne Itch So Bad

Why does my acne itch so bad Did you accidentally do a face plant in a poisonous plant like poison oak or poison ivy No. I just don't want you to mistake an allergic reaction for acne. For example, you could have acnelike marks because your facial skin is allergic to your laundry soap. I use hypoallergenic stuff. Is there a chance you have bed bugs, and they are biting you on the face That would leave big red welts. Smaller bites and a bunch of them could look like acne.

I don't know if that is better or worse than acne. While it does mean you ought to burn the mattress, hopefully not in your bedroom, it means the problem goes away once you get rid of the bugs. Could I be allergic to the sheets You could be, like an allergic reaction to wool. Then again, you might be allergic to dust mites in the sheets. I'd be sneezing. It might be causing wheezing in bed, instead. For example, an allergic reaction could be the culprit if your friends say you snore in bed but not somewhere else.

I don't think it is an allergic reaction. But I might have allergies, because I have to use hypoallergenic makeup and herbal scrubs. There is the possibility you are allergic to the makeup itself or to the herbal stuff you are using. For example, people who use psyllium tablets for digestive balance and are allergic to ragweed get the runs. I don't think they were planning on a colon cleanse. Acne should not itch. That's why I'm focusing on allergic reactions. What could cause itching if it isn't an allergic reaction.

What Happens to Your Body When You Die Reactions

Listen up viewers, we've got important news for you One of these days, you're going to die. Well, hopefully it's not going to happen today, so now that we've caught you while living, we want to hit you with some science so you're aware of what goes on, after you're gone. Let's say hypothetically that you were to just slump over dead in your chair right now. So, what happens next Well, because your heart is no longer pumping, your blood stops flowing and coagulates forming clots and becoming really thick and lumpy.

As as your blood is no longer circulating, it settles where gravity forces it to a process called postmortem hypostasis or livor mortis. Without circulation, your body temperature also drops and your muscles stiffen in the process known as rigor mortis onscreen text Latin for stiffness of death Now, obviously you aren't breathing any more. No respiration means no oxygen is getting to your cells. Without oxygen in your cells, the mitochrondria inside can't make ATP, a chemical used for a host of cellular tasks. If your cells can't make ATP,.

Your cells stop working. In otherwords, you're dead. With your cells now kaput, they start to break down and release all sorts of stuff including enzymes. That makes for an environment that is very attractive to bacteria and fungi, which eventually enter the mix and start decomposing, or putrefying the body. This process certainly isn't pretty, but it's definitely normal. Now before you're buried or cremated, your family may want a funeral. To slow the decomposition process and keep you looking tidy, chemistry comes in handy via a process called embalming.

The embalming process happens in two steps. First, your body is going to be loaded full of preservative chemicals like formaldehyde or glutaraldehyde using a pump and your circulatory system. Next, all your stomach contents get sucked out and all the dark nether regions untouched by the circulatory system are filled up with the same chemicals. While the embalming process does offer more time for your family to bid farewell to a you that mostly looks like you, it is only temporary, then it's back to decomposition. During the decomposition process,.

A huge array of chemical byproducts are spewed out by bacteria. Two in particular, putrecine and cadaverine smell absolutely disgusting, I mean really, they smell like a dead body. Sulfur containing compounds are also produced, which smells like rotten egg and skunk, along with countless other gases that work together, to temporarily make you more bloated than you ever were while living. Ok, so we've heard that some say that your hair and nails keep growing after you die. But, let's see what morticianr Caitlin Doughty from The Order of the Good Death has to say about that.

The hair on your head grows a tiny amount everyday, But when you die those processes stop. For thousands of years, people thought that the dead's hair and fingernails kept growing after death, because that's what it looked like to the naked eye. But it's not that the hair and nails are growing, it's that the rest of your body is shrinking. When you die, your body dehydrates and the formally moisturized plump skin shrivels. Revealing not growth but what was already there to begin with. Okay, so now you've got a.

Good sense of what happens when you can sense no more. And while it may seem like a dark topic, just remember, live life to the fullest!

How to Shave with Acne and Oily Skin Mens Skin Care Tips

Today I'm going to show you a couple of ways to help avoid shaving irritation if you have acne or oily skin. Please note, if you have severe acne that's heavily inflamed or infected you should consult a dermatologist. Many pimples and inflammations are caused by sebum, a natural oil produced by your skin. Problems develop when the oils on your skin combine with dead skin cells and clog your pores. This can lead to infections that swell and then get nicked when you shave. So to get the most comfortable shave you got to control these excess oils.

And that starts with properly washing the area to be shaved, in this case your face and neck. The key to a good wash is a facial wash or scrub that will not only clean but also exfoliate, getting rid of the dead skin and oils that clog your pores. Apply the product to your hands and work it gently into your face and neck. As you do your hair's will soften, making them easier to cut and less prone to uncomfortable tugging when you share. After rinsing off your face you may want to further hydrate your hair.

By splashing your face and neck with warm water, or by soaking a towel with warm water and holding it against your skin for up to three minutes. Now that your face is clean and well hydrated it's time to apply shave gel. But not just any shaving cream will do. Choosing the shave gel that's right for you is key. If your combating oily skin or acne you'll want to use a shave gel designed specifically to remove dirt and oil. Take a moment to check the pimple prone areas of your skin.

Rub the shave gel into an even lather over your beard and neck. Now you're ready to start shaving. When shaving over the temple prone areas of your skin use a multiblade razor like this one that has blades spaced closely together. The closer the blades, the less opportunity for skin to get caught between the blades. Use light strokes and avoid going over pimples more than once or twice. Make sure that your blade's good and sharp. A dull blade is more likely to nick pimples. So if you feel tugging or discomfort consider swapping your blade out.

For a new one. Or if you have an indicator strip on the back of your razor check to see if it's faded to white. A white strip means that your blade has dulled and may need replacing. Shave in the direction that you're most comfortable with. Many guys feel that first shaving with the grain of your hair, that is in the direction that your hair grows, and then following up with strokes in the opposite direction provides the closest, smoothest shave. However, since facial hair tends to grow in different directions.

You'll almost always be shaving both with and against the grain. An advanced razor like this one will deliver a close shave even against the grain. Finish by rinsing your face with water. Try finishing off your shave with a light moisturizer or aftershave product to calm and comfort skin. A good moisturizer will leave skin soft and smooth and help maintain the skin's natural moisture barrier. And there you have it. No cuts. No nicks. Feels good, doesn't it So let's recap. Wash and hydrate your hair. Use the right shave gel.
