Doxycycline and Topical Clobetasol Propionate for guttate psoriasis flare-up, back and shoulders have stubborn & unresponsive "folliculitis" now?

I'm sorry: but this is the type of specific problem about which helpful advice can only be given if a specialist in psoriasis has the opportunity to examine you and your skin and review comprehensively what treatment has been given and it's effectiveness. Only then can further suggestions for treatment be given. Please continue working with your Dermatologist or get a 2nd opinion. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Indian brown skin. Uneven skin tone. No acne. Micodrmabrasion, Micronedling, Photofacial, PRP, colagen, hyluronc acid or glycolc peel, whch is better?

Indian brown skin. Uneven skin tone. No acne. Micodrmabrasion, Micronedling, Photofacial, PRP, colagen, hyluronc acid or glycolc peel, whch is better?

Leave it alone: None of these are likely to "help". Please forgive my frankness. Many folks have "poikiloderma", skin of varying colors. If you have freckles and don't want them, a sunscreen may help some. Nobody worth knowing cares whether your skin tone is "uneven". Appearance is about physical fitness and how you carry yourself and interact with others. Focus on what you can manage and you'll look fantastic. ...Read more

If I have loads of aks all over abdomen (bikini sun exposure 40yr ago), why wouldn't derm prescribe aldara (imiquimod)?

If I have loads of aks all over abdomen (bikini sun exposure 40yr ago), why wouldn't derm prescribe aldara (imiquimod)?

Not sure: Aldara (imiquimod) is used to treat warts but can also be used to treat ak's. However, there are other treatments that are used for ak's like freezing them off with liquid nitrogen, surgical removing them if irritated or hypertrophic or irritated, or other creams (topical chemotherapy) that are used for ak's. ...Read more

Started Zenatane 4 days ago and scratched nose today, It peeled skin off my face. I've been using a medicated lotion derm prescribed. What to do??

Side effect of med: That is commonly seen with high dose vitamin A. I tell my patients to take Vitamin E 500 IU to reduce dryness of skin, but at this point just put some aquaphor on it and keep it covered. This can happen anywhere as your skin is more sensitive. ...Read more

Hematologist says diflucan (fluconazole) 1x mos. During menses for 4 mos 2 help tinea versicolor & cystic hidritinitis. Derm says doxycycline? Prone 2 infections?

Different diagnoses: I can see why you are asking this question. Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus can be controlled by an antigungal like fluconazole. Hidrinitis can be complicated by a bacterial - this can be treated with doxycycline. Depending what part of the immune system is affected, you could have two processes going on. ...Read more

Obagi/dermesse: Dr. Obagi specifically invented his skin care program to address hyperpigmentation issues as well as fine wrinkling, superficial scarring and enlarged pores. Retin-a is part of the program but hydroxyquinone is the part that addresses the pigmentation problems. There are other doctor prescribed treatments along these lines and treatment and results are pretty darn good. ...Read more
