Can someone please advise on conditions/diseases that have multiple skin involvement (psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema all at the same time)?

Can someone please advise on conditions/diseases that have multiple skin involvement (psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema all at the same time)?

Unclear question.: Do you mean whether one can have (atopic) eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis at the same time? Since eczema is used loosely, it may mean a skin rash including allergic contact or irritant dermatitis, then the answer is that it can exist with psoriasis or atopic dermatitis (the latter actually increases the risk in developing contact dermatitis). Psoriasis does not co-exist with atopic eczema. ...Read more

I have to have two heart valves replaced.MITRAL AND AORTIC are these the worst ones? Also together at the same time plz

RHD?: I assume you have rheumatic heart disease? At your age, if your general health is good, kidney function normal, no lung disease, your surgery should be very low risk and very successful. Be sure your teeth are in good condition before surgery or get them repaired beforehand as dental infection poses a grave risk to your new artificial valves. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

I have ra. Is it necessary for me to take my meds once over a flair up? All the meds have a lot of side affects & pose more risk the longer you take

I have ra. Is it necessary for me to take my meds once over a flair up?  All the meds have a lot of side affects & pose more risk the longer you take

Risks and benefits: It depends on how often and how severe are your flare-ups. If they are frequent or severe, it would be better to remain on the medications to decrease both frequency and severity and prolong the development of RA complications. It sounds like your symptoms are either or both frequent and severe because you need 2 potent medications to treat your ra. Good question for your rheumatologist. ...Read more
