Rashes must be seen.: My first reaction to a burning blistering rash on one side of the body is shingles, or Herpes zoster. But every rash needs to be seen in order to be diagnosed.

A 28-year-old member asked:

Ive heard that adding vitamins a and d to diet during pregnancy may help control skin itchiness and rashes. Is this true? How much should I take?

Be careful: The body does need vitamin a and d in pregnancy. However, vitamin a in high doses can cause cleft lip and palate in the baby. Your prenatal vitamin pill should have enough vitamin a. Many people are low in vitamin d. Your doctor can check your vit d level to see if you should take extra. The amount needed depends on the vitamin d level in your blood.

Is my childs coughing related to heart burn? He does not have any breathing problems

Dr. Scott Katz

Possibly: Coughing is a symptom and not a condition, therefore there are many possible causes. Heart burn (also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease or gerd) is a possible cause, especially if there are no breathing problems. Other causes include upper respiratory infections, allergies and asthma. Mild asthma can present as a cough without respiratory distress.

Is there a natural treatment for vaginal yeast infections, nail fungus and jock itch?

Dr. Robert Kwok

No effective ones: There are no truly natural treatments for yeast or fungal infections. Staying slim helps by having less moisture and heat in the skin folds of the groin and armpits, and by avoiding type 2 diabetes. Staying clean helps, such as showering after exercise. Treating fungal infections early, such as treating feet rashes, helps prevent toenail fungus. Eating yogurt with acidophilus may decrease candida.

I'm on vacation in orlando and I seem to have prickly heat rash all over my body. It's very itchy and irritating. I bought gold bond powder but it doesn't seem to be working. What else can I do?

Try over-the-counter: Hydrocortisone cream, but if that doesn't work either, give in and see a doc for diagnosis of what kind of rash: do you need a stronger steroid rash or an anti-fungal? A doc'll have to check out the rash to see.
