In peyrione's disease are the plaque's or the curving ever on the side? Most sites say it's on dorsal or bottom. Is the side very very rare in this?

Not rare: The plaques are often on the side, causing the excessive curvature. Difficult to treat, but you might try topical application of DMSO (horse liniment) available from a health food store or feed store. Use 70% concentration. Higher concentration may be irritating with repeated use. High dose vitamin E (1, 000 IU) per day has also been used. ...Read more

If I had damage on the right side of my penis, would Peyronie's disease plaque show up on the top (dorsal) of my penis?

If I had damage on the right side of my penis, would Peyronie's disease plaque show up on the top (dorsal) of my penis?

Penile Trauma: If you had trauma on the right side of the penis you would not develop a Peyronies plaque dorsally. I must say, I have never seen a 16 year old with Peyronie's disease and I doubt that what you are feeling is relating to Peyronie's disease. You should see a physician to help determine what you are feeling. ...Read more

What are these strange white flaky plaques on the side of my nose? How do I get rid of them? They pop up especially after shower. Feels "hot."

Rash around nose: The most common scaling or flaking rash that appears around the nose is seborrheic dermatitis, related to dandruff on the scalp. Often the scalp and the area around the nose are inflamed at the same time. Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic skin condition that cannot be cured, but can be controlled with topical medications. Gently washing with an anti-dandruff shampoo helps improve the rash. ...Read more

One of my sons teeth had hard white plaque I think on it cause I has a white spot on the side of his teeth. Is It possible to get it back to normal?

One of my sons teeth had hard white plaque I think on it cause I has a white spot on the side of his teeth. Is It possible to get it back to normal?

That depends: That depends on what is actually going on. Hardened plaque is called calculus. This can be easily removed by the dentist and the tooth returned to normal. The beginning of a cavity can also look like a white spot. This is harder to resolve and may require a filling. Your son needs an exam by a pediatric dentist to determine what is going on and how to solve this problem. ...Read more

I have tremors on right side for 9 years; left side is normal; I have white matter ischemic changes+ lacune infarcts; no significant plaque; Dx?

See a neurologist: Focal tremors could be a sign of Parkinson's disease. You do describe prior strokes, and many lacunar infarcts can also cause tremors. The focality does concern me as I would want to rule out obstruction of carotid or vertebral artery in neck. An experienced neurologist should be able to pin down the causation ...Read more
