The skin on my fingertips has been peeling for the last 4 months. Moisturizer helps a little but the peeling continues. It's not itchy. What causes?
Probably water loss: Most people that suffer from peeling fingertips wash their hands all the time. As water molecules leave the skin, more piggyback or get pulled out of the skin too. This leaves the skin dry and peeling. A great way to reverse this is whenever your hands are wet, thinly rub in petroleum jelly for thirty seconds, then towel dry. This traps the water in your skin, stopping the peeling. ...Read more

I've been having itching on the soles of my feet, the palms of my hands and now my scalp is itching. No sign of any rash, bumps or anything visible.
Itching palms/soles: Usually, the first thing we think of , if it is new and sudden onset - with palms and soles involved, is a drug allergy. Usually with a rashl. Any new medications? IF it is chronic- and the skin peels it could be dyshydrotic eczema. This generally responds well to steroid creams and ensuring skin is not overly moist ( i.e. sweating in socks). This type of eczema is usually between fingers/toes. ...Read more
All of a sudden my wifes foot starting itching really bad. It began to swell just underneath her toes. The swollen area turned a white color and the area around it is red. Mild discomfort a lot of itching. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sounds like she : Might have a bacterial or fungal infection between her toes which is causing an abcess or cellulitis. She should see a podiatrist asap. He would be able to make a quick diagnosis and if infected place her on appropriate antibiotics. If this what she has, i would recommend oral antifungal agents as well. Until she gets an appointment, she should elevate her foot, and try and stay off it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had itching around my lips and redness. The area has become very sensitive. What could it be and what can I do for it?

First off, you don't: Report any medical history. In the event you are diabetic you must see a foot doc. In the event you aren't, still a good idea but often can manage o your own. It is possible the purple is secondary to some blood. If the skin hardened you can file it down with an Emory board. Any open areas cover with a bandage and monitor for infection. ...Read more

I have a very red rash in the inside creases of my upper thighs burns and itcheS hydrocortizone helps itching and burn but not redness. ?
Rash and steroids: Hard to know the cause of the rash. However, dermal fungal infections typically prefer skin folds because of optimal heat/dampness. Hydrocortisone would tend to exacerbate fungal infections (even despite improved itching). One might want to see a physician to confirm diagnosis and set course of optimized treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
