The base of my spine sticks out since loosing weight, the skin is sore and broken what can I do to avoid it keep happening?

The base of my spine sticks out since loosing weight, the skin is sore and broken what can I do to avoid it keep happening?

Pressure over bones: Our skin is made to take pressure, deeper tissues are not. When you lost weight, you also lost some of the deeper fatty protective tissue and now any pressure/friction /shearing directly pushes your skin into the spine causing injury. You need to protect this area by applying a good protective skin cream or simple dressings until healed. Reposition yourself frequently or use a cushion to the area. ...Read more

Hi I'm maria and I suffer itchy and burning hands and feet to the point it swells up ...idk if its a sign of a change of my allergies.. But I want to know how I can handle it especially during the summer..

Hard to know: Is there a rash? Does it usually worsen during the summer? Can you describe the allergies? In general, seasonal or food allergies do not cause isolated cutaneous symptoms on the hands and feet. A metabolic, toxic or nutritional neuropathy can cause hands/feet burning without rash. Insect exposure at night (if only the hands/ feet, head are exposed) might present this way. Just thoughts. ...Read more

I bite the skin around my nails. I know I have to break the habit, but in the meantime is there anything i can put on the skin to ease the pain?

Lubricate: Carry vaseline or aquaphor. Rub in a tiny amount every hour or more. Avoid use of neosporin, bacitracin, triple antibiotic, etc. These are less than useless. They are common sensitizers: they cause allergic reactions without any chance of any benefit. ...Read more

How many times can I wash my hair and how i protect it from the sun ? Tell me doctor that is important to me because my hair became dry and fell down

Every other day: Some people wash every day and that is ok. But it is recommended to wash probably every other day and it should be ok. Too much shampoo removes some natural oils necessary for healthier hair. If it is too oily you can use a powder or dry shampoo to absorb the excess oil. Use hair products with sun protection and/or uv protection spf 10-15. Use conditioning treatment once a week to lock in moisture. ...Read more

STDs possible if at risk; from the topic tags you chose, you're awre of this. Treatment is a prescription antibiotic, so get care ASAP for diagnosis, STD testing, and Rx.

It : It is possible that you have folliculitis or possibly impetigo which are common on the upper lip and around the nose. Treatment would typically be a topical antibiotic cream/ointment twice daily. Perhaps try polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) over the counter and see if that helps. If not, i would recommend you get evaluated by your doctor so appropriate treatment can be given. I hope that helps! ...Read more
