Was it scabies?: Water blisters on the fingers sounds a little different from a scabies infection to the skin. Consider seeing a dermatologist. Otherwise if irritated w/o infection, can try Hydrocortisone over the counter. Good luck. ...Read more

Lubricants: Check out your nearest pharmacy which should have plenty of personal lubricants available for you to try out. Typically, you will become moist enough on your own once you're excited enough. Check out http://goo. Gl/LFVm7Q & http://goo. Gl/5XlSC3 for more education & ideas. Also ask your FamilyDoc or GYN about HPV vaccine to prevent genital warts & cervical CA. ...Read more

Was given naseptin cream however the instructions tad confusing when saying small amount on a finger but is it external or not? And how far do you go?

Naseptin: Is an antibiotic and disinfectant. It is used to treat and prevent infections in the nose. As you note, you place a small amount of cream on the tip of your little finger and carefully apply it inside one nostril and repeat for the other nostril. You can deposit the cream right inside the nostril and then gently rub the outside of your nose to try to move the medicine up a little further in. ...Read more

I have dry chapped, flaky fingers due to contact with washing powder. Tried hydrocortione cream for 2 wks, sudocream and avoidance. Not improved. Help?

Dry skin: Dry skin often results from irritating exposures from soaps and chemicals. Stopping the exposure such as by wearing gloves is imperative. Maintaining a diet and appropriate hydration. Rather than Hydrocortisone or other creams try using unrefined organic coconut oil or 100% pure aloe Vera gel which both work well for healthy moist skin and can be applied safely as needed. ...Read more

Severe frostbite in mid finger. Extreme pain, is it OK to use a numbing cream for the pain?

No more damage...: Although it may sound reasonable to use them, lidocream type creams are not recommended for application to already injured or traumatized skin. The treatment is prevent any further to the frozen skin, blood vessels and nerves in the digit. The pressure of applying, possible allergic as well as unstable skin could further increase tissue damage. Call you doctor for the appropriate medication. ...Read more

How do you neutralize chilli burn on your fingers. Habe tried salt, alchohol, ice and cream with no results.

How do you neutralize chilli burn on your fingers. Habe tried salt, alchohol, ice and cream with no results.

Many possibilities: I am not sure that neutralize is the right word; if you have a burn then it is too late to neutralize it but you can treat it. Treatment for chemical burns is similar to those from heat. My favorite remedies are aloe vera ; calendula cream topically. Homeopathic hypericum, capsicum or urtica urens may help. Take vit c 2000 mg 3-4x/day. Also see http://earthclinic. Com/cures/burns. Html. ...Read more

I have very dark finger joints on my 2 left fingers and 3 in the right. Creams frm my derma doesn't work and im really worried?

Hmmm: Pigmentation can vary from person to person. Should there be a rash or mole contributing to the darkness a thorough exam by a physician would be recommended. The use of Cortisone can lighten some blemishes but it would be best to be examined first. Good luck ...Read more

Cn the dermal ridges on finger stretch/enlarge permanently? Had pipjoint in coban+antiinflam cream 1 month 4 reinjury sprain did also massage&stretchin

The pip joint: Creases on top of the finger can go "missing" for a time if the joint is swollen and stiff. The skin there is very flexible and if the jointis bent a little or the joint is full the creases look different. The creases don't really strethc they just look different until time passesif and when / after the mechanics normalize. ...Read more

I have a wart on my finger and I put on the compound w like it said every day for a week or 2. Now it's like white and smooth not a cauliflower. When do I have to stop applying the cream?

I have a wart on my finger and I put on the compound w like it said every day for a week or 2. Now it's like white and smooth not a cauliflower. When do I have to stop applying the cream?

Think onion: A wart is a multilayered collection of the germ in your tissue. The compound W acts as a toxic agent that kills a layer of wart at a time. You brush off the dead cells & do it over & over until you are below skin level and see raw flesh. If you stop too soon, it re-emerges within weeks/months. It is like an iceberg with a part above & a part below skin level. ...Read more

I put viaderm-kc cream on my finger at night and in the morning. I scratched my eye with that finger, due to an itch. Will my eye be ok?

Usually be fine: Most of the cream will be absorbed by skin especially it's overnight. If you don't feel any uncomfortable, that would be fine. Otherwise you'd better wash it immediately and go to see doctor. ...Read more

I accidently licked my finger which I just used to apply a fungal cream and now I having weird feel with panic attack and haevy head feeling?

Don't worry: Although these creams are not meant for the use per mouth, but the amount that you had will not cause any harm. Please relax and always use some cotton when applying any cream, so that your fingers will be spared.

Good luck. ...Read more

Eczema on finger for yrs, recent mths spread, worse, and to finger next to it; very itchy, topical cortisol creams don't really help. What else to try?

Eczema on finger for yrs, recent mths spread, worse, and to finger next to it; very itchy, topical cortisol creams don't really help. What else to try?

Reduce stress levels: Is important with eczema as it's an inflammatory condition. Tthat's priority number #1. Then make sure you aren't using non organic soaps. Harsh antibacterial soaps & cleansers will irritate already sensitive fingers. Don't use static cling-free wipes in dryer as that affects your whole body. If not bleeding, try raw, virgin coconut oil. Change ur diet off fried, processed or sugary foods &, sodas. ...Read more

Right index finger is itchy & ''swollen'' (wider than left index) for the past few months & hydocortisone creams barely work to halt the nonstop itch.

Right index finger is itchy & ''swollen'' (wider than left index) for the past few months & hydocortisone creams barely work to halt the nonstop itch.

Finger swelling: You probably need to have someone look at the area that is bothering you. If you have been using the cortisone cream daily for such a long time, unfortunately, it can have a paradoxical effect: it can cause it's own skin irritation, rather than helping the problem. Stop using it. Use moisturizer (thick one) 4-5x/day. Use an antihistamine to stop the itching (like loratadine). If no better, see Dr ...Read more

Hi. I have very dark finger joints on 2 fingers on my left and 3 at the right. Its been bothering me since the cream my dermatologist gave me didn't wo?

See your physician: The only problem that I can find that might fit your complaint is an iron overload syndrome called hemochromatosis, but that is usually associated with pain in those joints. Ask you physician to look at your hands and to test for that. He/she might have alternate suggestions. ...Read more

My fingers and lips become swollen when I touch ice and drink cold water or eat ice cream.?

Cold "urticaria": This is called cold "urticaria" although your case is better described as cold angioedema. Can you tell us how soon after the exposure the swelling happens? If this develops hours after the exposure, the problem may be more complicated. Have you tried taking an antihistamine 1-2 hrs prior to the exposure to see if this helps? No swimming or showering in cold water please. ...Read more

I burnt my finger whilst cooking I have used burn gel, creams, water and cling film but nothing's stopped the burning.

I burnt my finger whilst cooking I have used burn gel, creams, water and cling film but nothing's stopped the burning.

It takes time: Burns injure not only the skin, but also the nerves under the surface of the skin. Most simple, superficial burns heal on their own and pain is gone in a few days; deeper burns may take up to a few weeks for the pain to completely go away. Ice applied to the site for 20 min at a time, and ibuprofen, can help manage the pain until your wound heals. See a doc if it's bad! ...Read more

Eczema hands: You probably already know these things but...
1. Don't over wash hands
2. Avoid all hand sanitizers
3. Avoid all hand lotions
4. Use gloves when washing dishes/cleaning
5. Lubricate hands daily with the thickest ointment you can tolerate (vaseline is best)
6. Several nights per week coat your hands with ointment and wear cotton gloves overnight.
7. See if your doc can prescribe a compounded med. ...Read more

I had a whole body rash 3 days ago, which now has gone thanks to some cream. Now I have aching in the fingers. Can an insect bite cause this?

Cut finger on dirty fork in dishwasher yesterday, very slightly red today, no pain really, don't want it to get infected, can I use mupirocin cream?

Cut finger on dirty fork in dishwasher yesterday, very slightly red today, no pain really, don't want it to get infected, can I use mupirocin cream?

Low risk: The chance of infection from this sort of cut is low, especially is the fork did not penetrate deeply. If there was any detergent in the water, the risk is even lower. Even a trace amount of common dishwashing detergent would kill most infection-causing bacteria. I don't think you need mupirocin; just keep the wound clean. ...Read more
