Recently had skin peel off scrotom and penile shaft. Almost like sunburn peeling skin. What causes this?
uncomfortable probl: At the risk of oversimplifying a potentially complicated problem, this sounds like an inflammation or irritation of the skin in that area causing the peeling.

Something came in contact with that particular area to cause the inflammation and irritation and so the key is to try to identify it and then, avoid it.
I have peeling skin on my face and it looks horrible due to sunburn! Should I put any creams/lotions or will it make it worse? Face looks really dirty
Apply unscented: Moisturizing lotion. Do not try to peel the skin yourself. Although that may seem to help, it will just peel more and possibly lead to bleeding, infection and scarring. Be careful of any makeup you apply, which could make the peeling worse. Also, stay out of the sun until this is healed and then make sure you're diligent with sunscreen and re-applying for the future.
Scratching sunburned-peeling skin that causes fliud to come out? What is this fluid? Aloe vera after sun lotion was used beforehand.
Tissue fluid: Damaged, burned tissue exudes fluid leaking out of ruptured cells. Not dangerous. Nothing magic about aloe. Any lubricating oil or ointment will be beneficial. Water is also useful. Avoid antiseptics and antibiotics. Avoid bacitracin, neosporin, etc. Next time prepare to better protect yourself from sun damage.
Mother developed splotchy patches of swelling on only the face for a few days, then dry, peeling skin like sunburn. Any ideas as to what it is?
Topical allergy: Most likely she got something on her skin that she was allergic to or an irritant such a chemical could have gotten on her face. Assuming she did not have any other systemic reactions i.e. Fever, chills, headache, these would be the most likely causes. The peeling skin is the way the skin heals itself. They are generally self limited and nothing to be concerned about unless she gets it again.

Don't Pick & Peel: The best thing to do after a burn is to apply cool compresses and Hydrocortisone cream. Once the peeling begins, it is best to keep the affected areas as hydrated as possible by application of copious amounts of moisturizers. Avoid picking or peeling away the skin so that the new skin is given a protective covering under which it can heal.See 1 more doctor answer
MOISTURIZE!: Use a water based cream. I like dml lotion and dml forte cream. They are unscented and hypoallergenic. They can be used topically anywhere on the skin as well. Http://www. Personandcovey. Com/productdetail. Asp? Productid=19.See 1 more doctor answer
My son got severe sunburn all over his back 8 days ago It blistered all over but now gone. Skin peeling and very red. Can he swim in chlorine pool?
Wait: Until the burn is completely healed before exposing him to a chemical. He needs to wear a shirt as well as strong sun screen to avoid the sun. It is too risky. All the best.
Sunscreen: Daily application of a broad spectrum sunscreen will help prevent this predicament. Once a sunburn has occurred, it is important to use an oil free moisturizer to encourage recovery of the epidermal and dermal damage. Use of an oil free cosmetic may be used to camouflage any spots until the skin heals.
