Contact dermatitis: Some cases of contact dermatitis can continue erupting for 3 weeks after initial contact, like poison ivy.

Here are some ..: Not all skin disorders can be disappeared forever; in fact, most will recur but could be managed. Yeast infection may recur if topical environment is right for its growth; all pruritic(itchy) disorders have their underlying causes such as allergy, infection, malignancy, etc. So, you may need continual care with topical agent beside keeping the care as clean/dry as possible + healthy lifestyle. ...Read more

Dryness on penis, now with redness + pimple like marks and few cuts noticed. Doc said dermatitis so apply cortisoid creams & moisturizor. Not curing.?

Doctor can evaluate: If a new rash has not resolved with some over-the-counter Hydrocortisone cream and some moisturizer, a dermatologist or a primary care doctor can re-examine the rash. Common eczema should get better with cortisone, so if symptoms persist, the doctor(s) can check to see if it is a more serious type of rash, and also look for signs of skin infection (such as a fungus). ...Read more
