Doctor insights on: Burning oil in desert storm
Cool/tepid water: Immediately place the burned area (if not extremely severe) in cool or tepid water to stop the burning. Gently washing with cool water & soap will remove residual oil. Do not remove blisters (they provide a sterile "bandage"). If a large area of hand/face/etc is involved, seek medical help at once for definitive treatment to prevent contractures. Do not smear burn with grease/butter/the like. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sort of.: While it's a myth that you can accelerate tanning by applying baby oil, the use of baby oil instead of a good sunscreen lotion will certainly make your skin much more susceptible to tanning and way more likely to burn. Remember, tanning is your body's way of telling you that you're getting too much sun. Baby oil is a petroleum product that contains no sunscreen. ...Read more

I have had burning at the tip of my penis for 2 days now, right after I used emu oil on the area. No discharge, not an std, no other pains?
Possible rxn to oil: Is the burning only with urination or more on the skin of the penis? Since the burning started after using the emu oil, it sounds like that may be the cause, but this is not a common side effect. Push fluids for several days so urine is very dilute, if it doesn't clear, see a doctor to rule out UTI. If irritation is only on the skin area, then use a topical OTC hydrocortisone cream 3x/day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why do I have itchy, dandruff, burning sensation and my hair is falling out and its really dry and my doctor gave me peanut oil to put overnight
Itchy and flaky scalp is a common condition. This is caused by a fungus called malessezia fur fur. Sometimes this condition is called seborrheic dermatitis. Some people are prone to the fungal infection of scalp skin. This causes hair loss too. This is not a harmful condition by any means, but it is a nuissance due to itching.
This condition can be treated with dandruff shampoos over the counter. Shampoo that works for it are selsun blue, t-gel shampoo, Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo, ketaconazole shampoo (pharmacist can show you this if you have difficulty finding this). Apply any of these shampoos to the scalp and leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse it off. Repeat at least twice a week. This will help get rid of the problem. If you keep getting this condition repeatedly then you can use it once a week for maintainance to keep the condition under control all the time. These shamppos usuaully makes hair rough, so it is important to use a good conditioner following the shampoo.
If this is not helping, I recommend that you see your doctor. ...Read more
I used coconut oil for lubricant 5 days ago, and my vagina/vulva is burning, itchy, swollen, painful. I used monostat 1, and still feel uncomfortable.
Allergic reaction: I agree that you should never use coconut oil as a vaginal lubricant. I suggest careful washing with baby soap to remove any remnants and then use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and topical 1% hydro cortisone to the external vaginal area. See your GYN on Monday. Stop th Monistst and use Sitz baths (2 lbs of epsom salts in 6-8 inches of warm water, for 15 minutes 3-4 times a day. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Get second opinion: If the first dermatologist wasn't able to help you then get another opinion. When in doubt certain tests can be performed including a biopsy. Perhaps you are allergic to something like a fragrance or jewelry. Allergy testing can be done. Perhaps it is fungal considering it did not get better with a cortizone (hydrocortisone) cream. Second opinion is often helpful. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
