What Can You Do To Stop Itching In The Hand If You Have A Fracture
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

There: There are several possibilities including psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, and skin allergy. I would recommend that you only use a gentle cleanser when cleaning your hands (like cerave or cetaphil), and use a moisturizer cream such as aquaphor, cetaphil, eucerin, or cetaphil cream twice daily. If not better after a week or so, consider a trip to a dermatologist who can make an accurate diagnosis and formulate a good treatment plan for you. You might need a steroid cream/ointment to clear this up. I hope that helps! ...Read more

How do I treat a partly healed second degree burn? My husband burned the back of his hands with a sedilien torch a couple weeks ago. We've been treating it with neosporin ointment. It still stings and itches him. What else can I do?
Since the burns involve his hands, you should probably have a doctor look at him. The itching can be part of normal healing, but the stinging is concerning. In the meantime, I've listed some basic burn information below.
There are three burn classifications which will help you know what to do.
1) first degree burn: usually just redness swelling and pain. Unless it involves large areas of the hands, face, groin, feet, buttocks, or major joint, you can treat the area as a minor burn. If the burn does involve the areas listed, you should call your doctor or go to the emergency room. First degree burns may have discoloration of the skin for a few months, but do not usually lead to permanent scars.
2) second degree burn: pain, redness, swelling and blistering. As long as the burn is less than 3 inches wide and doesn't involve the body parts listed above, you can treat it as a minor burn. (it sounds as if your daughter has a small 2nd degree burn) you should call your doctor or go to the emergency room if the burn is larger than 3 inches or involves the body parts listed above.
3) third degree burn: is the most serious and the area may not hurt (from nerve damage) and can appear either black or white and dry. This needs emergent medical attention and you should call 911 or go to the emergency room.
Treatment of minor burns:
1) cool the burn by running it under cold water for 10-15 minutes or applying cold compresses (do not use ice).
2) cover the burn loosely with a gauze
3) take an NSAID such as Ibuprofen for treatment of inflammation and pain relief.
4) do not apply butter or ointments. Do not pop any blisters.
5) keep area clean and dry. Watch for sign and symptoms of infection such as increased redness, swelling, drainage, pain or fever.
6) once the burn has healed completely, the best way to avoid scarring is to keep the area out of the sun for the next 6-12 months. Sun avoidance is the single most effective way to avoid scarring.

If this does not work then I suggest seeing your doctor for an exam. ...Read more
