Toe fungus. Big one is bleeding/dried blood (recurring) a bit at cuticle corner & the skin around is puffy circle. Best treatment laser or Jublia (efinaconazole)? Or?

See a dermatologist: Begin by defining the problem. Is fungus the primary concern? Oral terbinafine for 3 months is safe and costs $12 cash.It is about 60% effective as judged by result 1 year later. Laser costs $1000, not covered by insurance, uncertain result. You need a year to find out if it helped. The cream costs over $1000 for less than 10% success. You pick one. ...Read more

Anal itching, scratches around anus skin, light bleeding. No pain/normal bowel mov. Rectoscopy normal. Ongoing for years. What is the best treatment?

Clean: Anal itching can be a very tough symptom to cure. However, I have found the following procedure an excellent "almost" cure. Immediately after every bowl movement, wash the area with soap and water. Dry the area well and then either rub in otc Hydrocortisone cream or vasaline petroleum jelly. This routine works great and has been extremely successful with my patients. ...Read more

Popped a zit and now it's bleeding under the skin. Suggestions?

Popped a zit and now it's bleeding under the skin. Suggestions?

Pop! Goes the Measle: Yeah. Leave it alone. You squeezed too hard or with too much pressure with your nails. Now it just has to heal. It may collect some more pus but you'll have to be extra careful getting rid of that. Put some antibacterial ointment on it and give it several days to heal. The blood should resorb. Be careful next time. If a zit won't pop with gentle pressure wait 'till it "matures" more to try again. ...Read more

Tiny red spots on skin. Kinda look like tiny cuts and maybe bleeding under the skin. What could this be?.

Petechiae?: This sounds like petechiae, which actually is small volume bleeding just under the skin. This should be examined by a provider- petechiae have several causes but can be present with platelet disorders, that can affect blood clotting. Occasionally severe infections can cause petechiae, but most people at that stage wouldn't be on healthtap- they'd be in the icu! ...Read more

The sun damages the elastin fibers in the skin as well as the collagen, leading to thin skin that is prone to bruising. The most common sites include the forearms and legs. ...Read more
