I have a red rash on my penis shaft near my groin area. It is also secreting clear like fluid from the rash. Is it eczema/dermatitis/yeast infction?

I have a red rash on my penis shaft near my groin area. It is also secreting clear like fluid from the rash. Is it eczema/dermatitis/yeast infction?

Not likely: Johns123, it sounds like something you need to have checked out by a physician. Based on the symptoms and signs you have described it could be several things. Eczema typically does not secrete clear fluid, nor does dermatitis. Yeast is a possibility but you still need to rule out other things such as herpatic lesions especially if there is pain associated with the rash.

I have eczema. I've gotten a rash in my groin that has not gotten better with cortisone cream. How do I know if it's a fungal rash?

I have eczema. I've gotten a rash in my groin that has not gotten better with cortisone cream. How do I know if it's a fungal rash?

Tinea cruris?: If fungal, this would be called tinea cruris. It's typically on both inner thighs as well as the groin. It's very itchy, brownish in color, and irregularly bordered. Cortisone may help the itchiness but would not help the rash to clear - that's one hint that it may not be eczema. If it's an irregular, brownish bilateral rash, you may want to try an anti fungal cream.

Itching: Ithcing sources are skin issues, eczema, dry skin, bites, allergies, kidney issues, liver issues or rarely lymphoma. Try hydrating skin lotion like Cetaphil or Amlactin.

How do I know if I have eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis? I have had itchy, scaley rashes around my nose, chin, buttocks and even groin. Help!

A dermatologist: Well indeed some of these diseases have overlapping symptoms. I suggest you see a dermatologist and they should be able to guide you and give you a proper dermatologist. If in doubt, a skin biopsy can confirm it, but it is rarely required.

I have had severe itching in my groin (under scrotum to anus) for 15 years. Inside ears also itch off/on. Eczema cream helps but doesn't cure. Help!

I have had severe itching in my groin (under scrotum to anus) for 15 years. Inside ears also itch off/on. Eczema cream helps but doesn't cure. Help!

See a dermatologist: You may have a type of neuropathy. An exam by a skin expert is essential. If "eczema cream" helps, be sure to review with the dermatologist. Sometimes we need to concede that no cure exists, then settle for the best control. You will need to be specific about all creams or other treatments

I have rash on my arms, chest, waist, groin & underarms. Doc says its eczema. Allergy report says I am NOT lactose intolerant. Can milk trigger eczema?

Eczema: Can be allergic or non-allergic, yes milk can trigger eczema in susceptible individuals, usually infants and children, and the allergy is to the milk protein rather, not to the milk sugar (the lactose). You need to be re-evaluated by the doctor who saw you, or have a second opinion, it's your right, see a dermatologist, goodluck

I have infected eczema on my legs could this cause a swollen lympnode in the groin? I have also had bowel problems due to being 32 weeks pregnant

Yes: Inflammation or infection in an extremity can certainly lead to swelling of the lymph nodes draining that arm or leg. The nodes should recede as the infection resolves. Consult your doctor for persistent node swelling, especially if it is non-tender. Good luck with the eczema

What happens if you put hydrocolloid bandage on a small infected eczema area? Would it heal?

What happens if you put hydrocolloid bandage on a small infected eczema area? Would it heal?

Need more help: First, if, in fact it is infected, you need to treat the infection with something. Hydrocolloid bandage is for healing open wounds It does work well, but not while there is an active infection going on. Once you treat the infection, it should heal up nicely.

Higher dose topical corticosteroid ointments, better skin hygiene, more frequent moisturization, chlorine baths, wet wraps, phototherapy, oral antibiotics, calcium/vitamin D supplementation, or more aggressive systemic medications like anti-inflammatories or immune-modulators.

Can eczema move around your body if you scratch the infected area but then scratch a clean area? Would it transfer

Can eczema move around your body if you scratch the infected area but then scratch a clean area? Would it transfer

NO: Eczema is not an infection. It is not contagious. It does not spread. It is not caused by touching. It is also not caused by food. Not curable but certainly treatable, it can be controlled by creams, sometimes pills. Best result from consultation with a dermatologist.
