    Nails on ring fingers

    My ring fingernails, grow a certain length and then my nail beds start to hurt, thus causing me to clip them to ease the pain. I have trimmed my cuticles, but this doesn't help. I can't wear fake nails, because the pressure will cause me to remove them immediately. I really want them to grow like the rest of my nails. What can I do to fix this?

    Do I have to get rid of all makeup after a stye?

    I am prone to getting styes in my eyes. It especially happens if I haven't been sleeping well -- I think it's a combo of no sleep and then rubbing my eyes more. My question is, do I need to throw out all of my makeup brushes and eye makeup after I get a stye? Or is washing the brushes and just replacing mascara enough?

    Skin Irritation: Eye Area

    I'm going to need a dermatologist and an allergist for this one. I have this irritation around my eyes and it has been bothering me for quite some time now. I have pet allergies and I have a dog, but I've never had a reaction this severe; just runny noses and itchy eyeballs. That has me unsure if this is even allergy related at all. Symptoms: * Redness (especially under the eye) * Dryness * Itching * Burning sensation * Flaking and peeling skin (especially around tear ducts) * Creases and....

  • What are these bumps on my skin, and are there any remedies or medicines I can use to get rid of them?

    I've had these flesh colored bumps on my skin for at least 3 years. They just appeared out of nowhere. They rarely itch, if ever. I was given an ointment cream called Triamcinolone Acetonide 0.1%, and another ointment called Mineral oil/petro - (Hydrocerin) - Top cream. I have been taking both of these for a month with no signs of improvement at all. The bumps are only on my torso and neck, nowhere else, and not on the back of my body.

  • Dry reddish brown rash with scaly, flaky skin

    Hi, I'm posting in the hopes that someone is familiar with what I'm experiencing, someone who has the same issue or perhaps knows what it could be. I've always had very dry skin. Many years back, when I was maybe 14/15 or so, I got this brownish patchy skin between my breasts that was very dry, thick, and flaky. It would go away and come back without me doing anything other than applying thick moisturizer. Eventually it came and never left, maybe around age 18/19. I am 22 now and is still....

    Skin problems

    Help with diagnosis I visited the clinic today because I was having major skin issue. In my t zone the skin was very red and painful to touch. I might have accidentally over cleansed and dried the skin out too much. Its been about 5 days and was not getting any better and my skin was refusing to rehydrate. So I went to the clinic and he said I have an infection and wrote me a script for doxycycline hyclate. 100 mg 2 a day. I am acne prone. But he rushed me out too fast to ask what kind of infection....

    Drooping lower eyelid and bad scar.

    Four years ago I went out to have some drinks at a friend of a friends place. It was more of a "party" scene I suppose. I was 20 years old. Anyways long story short.. a man who I didn't know or even talked to threw a mason jar hard as possible at my face. It connected just a little below my left eye and shattered on impact. I had pretty bad lacerations and was rushed to the er which I live In a small town and they took me to a larger hospital in Iowa City where I had my surgery. I had....

    My Hair is Falling out

    For about the last 6 weeks my hair has started falling out by the handfuls. I have always had constant hair regeneration and some loss but not to the point where it comes out in handfuls like it is now. I had a fall recently and had to take a steroid medication for a bulging disc in my neck. I am wondering if that could have caused the hair loss.

There's not a lot of them just 3-5 in a cluster and they come and go randomly. My husband doesn't have any and we've checked for bugs, I've....
