Dry Skin Pain When Lotion Is Put On
Very itchy, sore rash on nipples. When I stop using the ointment my Dr. prescribed, the skin on my nipples gets dry and the rash comes back.
What are you using?: Is the triamcinolone for your nipples? Do you have eczema? I assume you are not nursing. Do you have asthma? Do you use something for dry skin? Do the nipples itch? You should continue triamcinolone until you see a dermatologist, bringing along all ointments, creams meds, vitamins, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it safe to use cetaphil moisturizing lotion on the face? I have a rash near my mouth and it is causing flaky skin
Cetaphil good!!!: Cetaphil will HELP your face. Throw away the polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin).

My eyelids are red and burning. I have relief when i put vaseline on them. Is it safe to apply vaseline on the eyelid, covering the eyelashes?
Yes, temporarily: Vaseline won't hurt your eyes, but there are probably better things to put on there, depending on your problem, which could be anything from blepharitis, to eczema to hzv/hsv infections, etc. Vaseline is probably just masking your problems, and not treating it. See your ophthalmologist and get the right treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How long?: If this just started, think about anything that you have recently changed, such as your laundry detergent, fabric softener, shampoo, hair dye, etc., etc. If you have been outside a lot it could also be something airborne, such as dust, pollen, or dried leaves. Don't rule out your soap and body lotions either - "unscented" is not the same as "fragrance free". ...Read more

The skin on the back of my hands turns red and hurts when ever it is exposed to cold. It becomes dark and rough and burns when I apply any moisturizer?
Common: This is common and wearing gloves can help.
