Should I use aqueous cream on an allergic skin rash? Why do they call it aqueous cream?

Should I use aqueous cream on an allergic skin rash? Why do they call it aqueous cream?

Yes if it's eczema: Use creams & ointments on eczema. Lotions & gels contain more alcohol. They soothe & cool the skin by evaporation but evaporation causes dryness. That's the last thing you want in eczema. Creams & ointments trap moisture in the skin - better for eczema. This is less important for contact dermatitis and not at all for hives. Aqueous means ingredients are dissolved in water.

Would using hydrocortisone cream work on a morbilliform skin rash caused by having mono and taking amoxicillin?

Would using hydrocortisone cream work on a morbilliform skin rash caused by having mono and taking amoxicillin?

Unlikely to help: The rash is due to factors that circulate in the blood & effect their cosmetic changes (rash) beneath the skin surface. No externally applied cream or medication will make any difference in the timing of its disappearance.

How do I get rid of my dry skin rashes using just OTC creams?

How do I get rid of my dry skin rashes using just OTC creams?

After you bathe...: ...Apply a good emollient lotion (any brand will do) to your skin while it is still moist, to lock in the moisture. If that doesn't solve the problem, there is more going on than just dry skin, and you will have to see a dermatologist.

I have a skin pingmitation which is called vinea viscolor. I am half black and this dead skin rash is seeming to spread fast. I use liamsel cream.?

I have a skin pingmitation which is called vinea viscolor. I am half black and this dead skin rash is seeming to spread fast. I use liamsel cream.?

May need oral med: Tinea versicolor is a common fungal skin infection which has no real medical consequences beyond skin discoloration. Lamsil cream is good, but diffiult to cover all area, especially on back. Recurrence is common as well, especially if you keep long hair. Consult doc for possible oral med and maintenance treatment--often a medicated shampoo such as nizoral (ketoconazole). Good luck.

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).

Can a moisturizing cream for very dry skin help in allergic skin rash??

Can a moisturizing cream for very dry skin help in allergic skin rash??

Won't help, and: Won't harm, treating an allergic reaction depends on the severity and symptoms, ranging from applying topical steroid /antihistaminic creams, to giving antihistamines orally or by injection, up to hospitalization if need be. Dry skin needs skin care and seeing a dermatologist for better management, best wishes

I used fadeout cream on my face now I have bumpy texture skin and looks like I have red mark rashes on my face for days! How can I get rid of them!?

Redness on face: Use a good skin cream like eucerin as. Your face is probably pretty dry. You can also try a little Hydrocortisone creme on just the red area. Over the counter steroid creame may reduce the redness which is due to inflammation. Good luck. And feel better!

Fungal skin infection. What creams are as good as or better than daktacort. My rashes seem to have got worse rapidly?

Fungal skin infection. What creams are as good as or better than daktacort. My rashes seem to have got worse rapidly?

Med not the problem?: There are dozens of alternative antifungal preparations. However, often failure is due to problem with the medication reaching the fungus rather than which antifungal med used. You may do better with cream than ointment; you may need 3 or 4 times a day instead of twice; the problem may be something more than just a fungus. If initial therapy fails, best to ask pharmacist or doctor for recommend.

Itchy skin rash on back of thighs for over a year using steriod cream but comes back after a week each time. Also using dermol 500 in shower?

Itchy skin rash on back of thighs for over a year using steriod cream but comes back after a week each time. Also using dermol 500 in shower?

Agree and...: You don't give us much information but is it small sandpaper "goosebumps"? If so, may be keratosis pilaris which is famous for coming back again & again. This rash is caused by keratin plugs in hair follicles and is worse in winter & in those with dry skin, eczema. When you see the doctor, they would treat it with retin a, or cream with vitamin d, urea, lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid.

Am having eczema recurrently. Rashes under skin & itching. Can I take defcort for long. Have used betnovate & fucidin still they recur. Any stronger cream?

Am having eczema recurrently. Rashes under skin & itching. Can I take defcort for long. Have used betnovate & fucidin still they recur. Any stronger cream?

No: Those creams are strong enough, please don't self medicate, follow up with your doctor/dermatologist, eczema isn't just treated with topical treatment, other factors weigh in, skin care is important, triggers for exacerbations, diet, hydration and others. Potent local steriod creams can have the same deleterious effects if not used under doctor's supervision

A few choices: Burning in the skin around the eyes can be related to blepharitis, or ocular allergy. More commonly, it is seen with maxillary sinusitis or vasomotor rhinitis. See your family doctor or ENT specialist.
