My friend has a dry round patch on his neck size of a half dollar, his skin is a litter lighter in the dry patch he said its not itchy or not red.?
Fungus: This sounds like a fungal infection. This could be "ringworm" (tinea corporis) or tinea versicolor. If it is tinea corporis, then it is contagious. If it is tinea versicolor, then it is more of a nuisance, but can be challenging to control. I would see your pcp or a dermatologist to get an actual diagnosis. ...Read more

I have a small pink-red dry patch of skin that is not itchy or painful on my lower buttock, is it a rash? What could be the cause?
It depends.: You might have been born with it. This happens sometimes, and is usually called a port wine stain, or simply a discoloration of the skin due to lack of pigment. It also might be a lesion/cut/bite that healed long ago and stayed red. If you have others, it could be a skin condition from some disease. It would be wise to see your doctor to be sure, or just be aware of it if you are ok otherwise. ...Read more

I have a small patch of bumpy skin on my face. The bumps are not red, nor do they itch or hurt. Is this just dry skin? Or maybe acne?
Facial lesions: Bumps on the face could be multiple things. Acne will turn red eventually. Eczema (associated with dry skin) can result in bumps that may or may not itch. A fungal infection would gradually spread and may not itch. If the bumps have a small central pit it could be a benign infection called Molluscum that resolves over time. Using steroids like hydrocortisone will worsen a fungal infection. ...Read more

Red flaky skin under eyebrow dry and itchy. Very small raised red patches under eye and corner of eye. It's itchy. Kindly help.?
Eczema: It's possible that you have eczema affecting your brows and corners of your eyelids. This condition can also affect other parts of your body, like behind your ears, elbows, behind your knees, etc. Avoid your eyelids, but you may trial hydrocortisone 2.5% cream to the brows 2-3 times per day to see if you respond well enough. The eyelids require prescription grade ophthalmic ointment. ...Read more
Hi I'm 16 and my right nipple is red and has a small patch of dry skin underneath, and it has been very itchy for about 3-4 days Could it be cancer?
Red itchy nipple: A red rash over the breast can be the first sign of breast cancer but it is very uncommon. CA is found as lump, or on mammogram. At 19 it would be almost unheard of to have breast cancer. Since it itches it's more likely to be a reaction to something like soap, clothes, or even from sweating. Wash the area twice a day with a mind soap, dry off well, hyydrocortisone for 2 weeks. If not clear see doc ...Read more
