After one week of antibiotics for a tick bite, it still itches and it's a little red and firm, what should I do?
Steroid: Rub in a steroid cream. You may have a tube for poison ivy. Otc Hydrocortisone 1% is weak but may be enough. Don't be afraid to rub in several times a day. No need to wash before or after. If not ok in a week, see a dermatologist. Avoid antiseptics and antibiotics.If you have Bacitracin or neosporin do not use on this. Peroxide or alcohol will make it worse. Do not use a bandage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi,my umbilicus itches and has grey discharge with very bad smell.Been doing alcohol swab for a week but didn't work. Should i apply antibiotic cream?
No: Omphalitis on an adult is usually due to a very deep umbilicus [persistent urachus may be the cause] and a hairy abdomen. The hairs have tiny barbs which cause them to line up and insinuate relentlessly into the base of the navel. This is very irritating. The remedy is to use a clamp which will enable removal of all the debris in there. I recommend Castellani solution. Alcohol and gentian violet w ...Read more

I have an insect bite that turned into an open sore & now itches, hurts and oozes occasionally. Tried antibiotic cream hasn't helped. What should I do?
Itching can be part: of the healing process. That is why cuts on the skin often itch while they heal, daring you to scratch it and risk breaking it open again. That is why sometimes a completely healed over scar can still itch. Having said that, worsening itching for weeks after an infection may also mean allergic or hypersensitivity reaction. So monitor the duration of the itch. ...Read more

There : There are several possibilities including psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, and skin allergy. I would recommend that you only use a gentle cleanser when cleaning your hands (like cerave or cetaphil), and use a moisturizer cream such as aquaphor, cetaphil, eucerin, or cetaphil cream twice daily. If not better after a week or so, consider a trip to a dermatologist who can make an accurate diagnosis and formulate a good treatment plan for you. You might need a steroid cream/ointment to clear this up. I hope that helps! ...Read more
