    Rash after being dishwasher for 9 months. Stopped working in Nov but rash has stayed and gotten worse

    I worked as a dishwasher for about 9 months until November of 2016, it has now been about 5 months since I stopped working there. When I started working there I got a rash on my hand that I have been treating with Cortisone 10 Intensive Healing Formula. It used to help but it now only calms it for a little bit and it comes back on a regular basis. Now it dries up worse and turns white. It gets itchier than I ever remember it being. It is starting to look like a huge scar on my hand. I'm not sure....

    Plastic Surgery - Doctor’s opinion

    I would appreciate if any of the doctors or specialist are able to help me with these questions. My concern is rhinoplasty and breast augmentation. 1.

    My scalp is driving me crazy

    6 years ago I developed this patch of flaky skin about the size of a 50 cent piece half on my face and half in my hair. It did not itch or ooze it just looked gross and I could not get rid of it so I went to my GP and was told that it is eczema and given a topical cream to put on it which I was hesitant to use because it says in the pamphlet that came with it not to use on the face because it can cause loss of pigment. I did eventually use it and the part on my face cleared up but the part on my....

    Eczema on difference parts of body

    About 4 years ago, I started to get eczema around my eyes, like a full circle that would cover all my eyelid, then go all the way round to underneath my eye, I've had it ever since and it only goes away when I use a small amount of hydrocortisone cream on it, I've tried using moisturisers for months at a time, but all it ever did was make it not itch for a few hours, never made it any less dry, the hydrocortisone will make it go for months at a time, and after 4 years, It will return as bad....

    Black Toenail

    4 months ago I was in cross country and running a lot and my second biggest toe started to rub against the biggest toe and it got ginger and bruised. I kept running and one day the toenail of the second biggest toe had a dark green color. The color stayed the same for a while and as the months went on, the toenail became a little more raised and more grotesque. Today I made the mistake of trimming that toenail, finding that the entire “toenail” was like a cover for a black thing underneath the shell....
  • Help with scabies...

    I was diagnosed with scabies about 2 months ago. I used the cream, it was better for a while but then it came back. I followed the instructions carefully, and washed all my clothes and bedding in hot water. So my questions are.. I've read online that scabies have recently become increasingly resistant to permethrin cream. Is this true, or just internet hoax? I've been using tea tree oil as a home remedy but it does not seem to be working either, as I'm seeing new rashes develop. Would....

    Aging skin

    Can anyone provide data regarding the best methods of washing your face daily? My skin keeps breaking out with red patches and my dermatologist suggests I am sensitive, use soaps made for babies. I have tried this but am not seeing much luck. I was told soaps are very harmful to the skins ph balance. Any suggestions on daily cleansing?
