I have rashes in my pubic area. Its also itching badly. Can elica cream be used for that?

I have rashes in my pubic area. Its also itching badly. Can elica cream be used for that?

No: This is a potent topical corticosteroid cream. The pubic area is a sensitive area and I would avoid using a cream this potent as you can have significant side effects like skin atrophy, prominent blood vessels, and stretch marks if you don't have a pathology in that area that requires this. Please consider seeing a dermatologist for a diagnosis and treatment options. Best of luck. ...Read more

What can cause a 1 year old child to develop alergies and rashes on its skin from mosquito bites? Does any skin cream help?

What can cause a 1 year old child to develop alergies and rashes on its skin from mosquito bites? Does any skin cream help?

Mosquito bites: That's what mosquito's do - cause those huge local reactions, and in a rare person, even more widespread reactions. If I get a mosquito bite on my leg, it will often swell to the size of a small cup saucer. It's due to histamine release locally. Sometimes cool compresses to the area are helpful, but for such a large reaction, topical anti-itch meds probably won't do much. Could try oral benadryl, (diphenhydramine). ...Read more

How to get rid of rashes on side of neck? Have it for 5 months now, and have tried some creams and they haven't worked. Please someone help me!!

Absent that a few reasonable things to try would be: 1% Hydrocortisone cream, organic unrefined coconut oil, lavender essential oil All of these are over the counter and available at a health store.
