My skin is peeling off in a powdered form(like dandruff) particularly in winter season. Local doctors says it is deficiency and no medicine. Medicine?

Face?: This may be seborrhea, which can respond to topical antifungals such as nizoral, (ketoconazole) Eurax lotion which decreases the demodex which lives in the pores. Depending on efficacy this is a better approach than chronic steroid use which is only suppressive. In severe cases a trial of oral Nizoral (ketoconazole) may put this into remission. ...Read more

See a dermatologist: Probably you should get oral therapy. Notice certain things about tretinoin [RetinA] and adapalene: There are various formulations and strengths. Initially they tend to be irritating but the skin will tolerate them better after a couple of weeks. Start using only 2 or 3 times a week, tiny amounts, wait 20 minutes after exposure to water, avoid all other acne products, no scrubs or harsh soaps. 2-3 ...Read more

How to get rid of acne forever? Benzyol peroxide or retin-a can't help n cause my skin to peel off, and acne will come out from the same place again!

Not curable: Dr. Ferguson has given you good advice. You need to accept that acne is not a curable disease but will remit at some unknown time. I was able to stop using meds when i was 50. If you can't tolerate the meds you listed, perhaps a combination of a salicylic acid wash and a topical or systemic antibiotic chosen by your physician, or spironolactone or the oral contraceptive pill will clear you. ...Read more

Can using candid B cream on vagina or labia cause infertility? My skin started peeling off a bit. Does this cream affect fertility?

Can using candid B cream on vagina or labia cause infertility? My skin started peeling off a bit. Does this cream affect fertility?

Not likely: Topical anti-fungal cream like miconazole will not affect fertility. There may be small risk for toxicity to embryo and fetus if used during the first trimester because imidazoles are absorbed in small amounts from the vagina. Oral medication of this type should be avoided unless your welfare is at risk from the infection, and the medication is prescribed and closely monitored by your obstetrician ...Read more

Why is my skin peeling off inside the mouth on the cheeks?And have small pimple like bumps on the cheeks that give out salt like fluid when pierced?

On my cheeks: You may be unconsciously biting your cheeks which also irritate minor salivary glands where the ducts get blocked and cause the formation of mucoceles (mucous retention cysts) that are harmless. However, we cannot diagnose this over the internet, sight unseen. You will need to see a dentist to confirm my suspicions as there are other possibilities, some of which require treatment. ...Read more
