Hi there. I have a patch of skin near my nose that is really dehydrated/oily. It shows dehydration lines. What should I do?

Seborrheic dermatiti: Your condition sounds like seborrheic dermatitis, but without an exam I am only guessing. This sometimes responds to a moisturizer, but usually one needs something with an anti-inflammatory action or acne type med. I would suggest starting with clotrimazole cream twice daily for several weeks. Hydrocortisone cream 1% will work really well but temporary only. See MD for acne type Rx. ...Read more

Hi, can you offer advice on Skin issues related to epiduo please? Skin seems stipped, red, extremely oily in t-zone but dehydrated skin. Help please

Drying, irritating: Epiduo can be effective but irritating and very expensive. Over $300 for 1 tube! Both benzoyl peroxide and adapalene are much less costly if used separately. Even cheaper if tretinoin instead of adapalene with similar result. Benzoyl peroxide is drying. Adapalene is especially irritating during first few weeks, so it is often started at just 2 or 3 times a week. The skin tolerates it better after ...Read more

Despite my best efforts, cleared blackheads will return within 2 days. Is there something i'm not doing right? I've oily but dehydrated skin. Thanks!

Despite my best efforts, cleared blackheads will return within 2 days. Is there something i'm not doing right? I've oily but dehydrated skin. Thanks!

Blackheads do return: A person with typical acne, which includes blackheads (open comedones), will find that the blackheads return. The skin pores that make the dead skin cells that form blackheads continue to stay active, producing more skin cells daily. Acne medications such as Retin-A or differin (adapalene) gel can help decrease blackheads. Seeing a professional to do a facial can also help get rid of blackheads. ...Read more

How can I tell if im dehydrated I have a terrible head ache, can barely eat/drink I've been dehydrated b4 but it was much worse, could this b the start?

Only way to know for: Sure is to do blood tests. But if you have had little oral intake and have been losing fluid through diarrhea, perspiration, or bleeding, you probably are indeed behind on fluids. The quickest way to replenish, if you can't take oral fluids, is intravenous fluids. Go to emergency dept now, so doctor there can tell for sure and treat immediately. ...Read more

My 5 year old son has a fever and headache. When he drinks water, he says it makes his head hurt worse. Is this a sign he is dehydrated?

My 5 year old son has a fever and headache.  When he drinks water, he says it makes his head hurt worse. Is this a sign he is dehydrated?

Dehydration: If he doesn't have diarrhea or/and vomiting, he would not be very dehydrated provided his fever is not very high. The signs of dehydration would be dry skin, sunken eyes, decrease in tear and saliva production, decrease in urine production. Mild dehydration would manifest in concentrated urine (dark brown color), thirst, etc. None of the described symptoms by you sound like dehydration. ...Read more

Several common...: Both psoraisis or eczema\can cause what you decribe. Eczema appears drier and less scaling than psoriasis. Some other less common problems may be to blame.

Noticeable Diarrhea 7x/days, 3-5x/day, abominal pain, headache, clammy skin, temperature 99.3-99.5. Nauseated, dehydrated, and feelings of weakness?

A product called bio-oil, they said for scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging&dehydrated skin, how far its write and do you recommend to use it?

A product called bio-oil, they said for scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging&dehydrated skin, how far its write and do you recommend to use it?

Nothing special!: There's nothing wrong with bio-oil except its claims to cure everything from acne to scars, to wrinkles and age spots. Wow, that must be some great stuff! but really, all it does is moisturize and lubricate dry flaky skin. Any good lotion will do the same. If it really did all it claims, it would be regulated as a pharmaceutical by the fda. If sold as a cosmetic, it's proven not to "work" as drug. ...Read more

Hang in there, as these side-effects usually ease up in a couple days (but not always). 5. Talk to your prescribing doctor; he or she may have other suggestions.

Diarrhea, light headed, head ache & hot flashes. Could I b dehydrated. Or vitamin C interaction from 1 tablet last night? Didn't eat much today...

Diarrhea, light headed, head ache & hot flashes. Could I b dehydrated. Or vitamin C interaction from 1 tablet last night? Didn't eat much today...

Certainly could be: Dehydration is always a concern with diarrhea and would be the most likely explanation for developing light-headedness after/with a period of diarrhea. The headache and heat intolerance may be related as well but are less likely to improve simply with hydration. The vitamin C is not a likely cause here. Drinking plenty of fluids, water, sports drinks, thin soup/broth, will be important. ...Read more
