Superficial wound under eye, doctor said to wash it with soap everyday and apply antibiotic oinment before sleeping. Worried about getting water in it?
Depends what you: mean by superficial wound. If it's a laceration that's superficial or skin abrasion on your lower lid, the antibiotic ointment will prevent it from getting water on it. Superficial abrasions heal quickly. Would not worry about it. Deep lacerations are the more serious to worry about. ...Read more

Hist. folliculitis. Derm put on Minocycline 1 month. I get boils and can scrape off white skin when I shower. Tried hydrocolloid bandage. Any tips?
Used retin A (tretinoin) twice on penis head...skin burned, reddish and sore patches. applying Vaseline, moisturizer for 3 days. can I apply Betnovate ointment?
Stop: I have no idea why you want to put Retin A (tretinoin) on your penis head since there is no wrinkle there. If anything, try topical hydrocortisone for a few days to calm the inflammation down (I presume however that Betnovate is a brand of cortisone containing betamethasone . If so, it is ok to use it once a day for 3-4 days but no more). ...Read more

I cleansed eczema on my face with an alcohol wipe then applied betamathasone 0.05% to reddened areas. Just want my skin to clear up already. Bad idea?
Moisturize!: If you have eczema, you must keep your skin moist. Anything that dries your skin will irritate it more (alcohol wipes are included here). Most dermatologists recommend inert emollients, such as vaseline. Strong steroids, such as betamethasone, need close monitoring and direction by a physician, particularly on the face where desonide is usually preferred. ...Read more

Am using bactroban (mupirocin) for skin rashes from which some fluid comes after a cut on toe.Was wondering if I put neosporin powder over bactroban (mupirocin) will it harm?
1) there is no : Point in doing that. 2) I would recommend you see a doctor. It sounds like you are self doctoring. The reason is it sounds like you have an infection and then you say a rash. So there may be two problems. If your not getting better with the bactroban (mupirocin) you may need an oral antibiotic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If minor..: You are going to hear varied opinions on wound care. Treatment of a specific wound is very visually based ie. It needs to be looked at by the person treating it.
