Cream For Skin Rash
Can I use monstat cream for skin rashes on my belly button and under arm or athletes foot cream is better?
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. ...Read more
Would using hydrocortisone cream work on a morbilliform skin rash caused by having mono and taking amoxicillin?

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.

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

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!?
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. ...Read more
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.

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 ...Read more

Can fluid come out of eczema. The skin is red with rashes that look like blisters, Itching at times but have sugar. All this after a cut. On antib & cream?
A qualified yes: If you meant atopic dermatitis then the answer is unusual. If you meant contact dermatitis, then the answer is often yes. I suspect that you might have used neosporin (or equivalent) OTC ointment on the wound site and have developed a contact allergy to one of the ingredients (neomycin). Try topical HC cream and stop the antibiotic ointment. If problem persists, see your doctor. ...Read more

You may be dealing with an allergy/contact dermatitis. Consider any new lotions, soaps, or products you are using in your private area. Also a new laundry detergent could be to blame. Try over the counter Hydrocortisone cream to the outside genital area a few times a day. Otherwise follow up with your doctor.
Best of luck. ...Read more

I'll be getting a skin rash regularly on my left hand. I see it a lot in summer time. Currently I'm using mometasone furoate cream ip but no result as?
It's not working.:
You are using a corticosteroid cream, helpful in eczema's and general dermatitis. If not effective this suggests the rash may be due to something else, perhaps a fungal infection or a symptom of another disease process.
See a dermatologist, get a skin scraping and then you will know for sure what is the cause and the appropriate treatment. ...Read more
