Patient: I am 42 years old and have fair skin, Over the last few years I have really noticed my skin aging severly. I have been out of the sun for several years now, but am seeing damage from years past. YUCK!! A few years ago I went to the dermotologist with bumps or growths( I cant remember the term. he used, but said they were from too much exposure to the sun and that they would dry up eventually and fall off. I have severly dry skin and am constantly using lotions, so would this prevent these growths, from drying up sooner than later? A few have gone away, but I still have a few left not to mention several tiny ones on feet and legs. Is there anyway to speed up the process. It is very embarassing to me and would like to get my skin back to somekind of normal. Putting myself first. Please help if you can. Willing to learn great skin care.
Already Tried: Alpha Hydroxy lotions, Lactic acid lotions, Eucerin, over the counter lotions. Continue reading I am 42 years old and have fair skin, Over the last few years
Patient: My son mentioned to me last night that his arms and legs were itchy. Then this morning, the itching persisted, and seems to have increased in intensity. I do not see any signs on his skin like a rash, mosquito bite like welts, or any redness or swelling that might look like scabies. I’d like to figure out what might be causing it, and how to get him some relief. We’ve tried some 1% hydrocortisone ointment, and some topical Benedryl spray – neither of which of worked to his satisfaction.
How old is he?
Did he come in contact with plants/vegetation?
Is his urine dark yellow?

Patient: I believe I have a rash. I’ve had it since I was 10 years old. That’s when I first noticed it. The rash actually almost went away when I was 19. When I turned 21, I started my own web company in college, so I was under a lot of stress, and the rash got pretty bad. The rash actually started itching and got worse. The rash is only included on my left and right legs (no where else on my body). Please let me know what you recommend. Thank you. Pictures of the rash on my left and right legs.

Patient: I have a rash around my ankles and up the calfs and shins of my leg. I have tried ringworm cream, cortizone cream, nothing seems to work. I had some leftover lamisil pills and i have started taking those also.
Doctor: Then obvious questions are, what have your legs been in? It would almost seem that your legs were in “puddles of water”, or in grass or Continue reading I have a rash around my ankles and up the calfs and shins of of my leg.
