What to do if I got eczema and makes the rashes worse. is there any fake tans that are good for sensitive skin?

Fake tans: contain DHA or dihydroxyacetone. They don't necessarily make your eczema worse but if your eczema is active it can pick up funny in those areas of your rash. I like to mix over the counter fake tanners with gentle lotion (something you find makes your eczema better) with the tanning lotion, to reduce irritation. ...Read more

Try an over-the-counter fungal ointment twice/day and for 2 weeks past when u can't see rash. ...Read more

See a doctor: Eruptions of this nature may be infective, allergic, non-infectious inflammatory and even rarely due to underlying malignancies. Working out the cause for these may take a prolonged investigation by an experienced clinician. See your pcp and if they cannot handle this they may refer you to a dermatologist or allergist. Good luck. ...Read more

Fungal skin infection. What creams are as good as or better than daktacort. My rashes seem to have got worse rapidly?

Fungal skin infection. What creams are as good as or better than daktacort. My rashes seem to have got worse rapidly?

Med not the problem?: There are dozens of alternative antifungal preparations. However, often failure is due to problem with the medication reaching the fungus rather than which antifungal med used. You may do better with cream than ointment; you may need 3 or 4 times a day instead of twice; the problem may be something more than just a fungus. If initial therapy fails, best to ask pharmacist or doctor for recommend. ...Read more
