Yellow crust forms after sunburn whilst skiing. What is it? How do I get rid of it?

Yellow crust forms after sunburn whilst skiing. What is it? How do I get rid of it?

Lotion, time: Whenever you get a sunburn there is damage to the skin that needs time to heal. The yellow crust is part of that healing process. Keep the skin moisturized and it will heal on its own in a few weeks. There is no quick way to get rid of the yellow crust. It is protecting the damaged skin beneath it from infection. ...Read more

Not clear: It is unclear from your description. Blisters are common after a severe sunburn and can be present even a week later. They can be yellow and linear too. I suggest a quick consult where someone can take a look. How about seeing your local provider or a HealthTap consult with someone? Just make sure they can see it. ...Read more

I have yellow scabs on my nose from a sunburn. I picked them and puss came out What do I do? (never had this happen before)

I have yellow scabs on my nose from a sunburn. I picked them and puss came out What do I do? (never had this happen before)

Don't pick at scabs!: Don't pick at scabs. Ever. A scab is your body's way of protecting your skin. When you open a scab, you open yourself up for infections. Pus is a cloudy, white fluid of a localized infection (an abscess) that your body is trying to wall off. Only let a doctor open a scab, as the area has to be thoroughly cleaned (& possible antibiotics administered). See a dermatologist (skin doctor) to discuss. ...Read more

I got a really bad sunburn on my lips and they blistered and are now starting to scab. Should I peel off the scab, its a yellow/golden color.

NO: Leave the scab you can put on an emollient that helps retain water like aquaphor or cetaphil but peeling the scab could peel away healthy tissue making a risk for a scar. If they become painful, blister with a foul odor or puss then see a doctor. ...Read more

See Doc for eval if severe. ...Read more

Does Keflex cause yellow teeth? I've also been feeling very dizzy and have a sunburn rash. I do have an allergy to penicillan. Is this related?

Does Keflex cause yellow teeth? I've also been feeling very dizzy and have a sunburn rash. I do have an allergy to penicillan. Is this related?

Certain foods and liquids can also cause yellowing of the teeth. Ask your doc to be sure and to find out what else could be going on that might cause this. We don't know why you are taking Keflex in the first place either. Call your doc! ...Read more

I have pus cells 8-10 and epithelial cells 0-1and pH 5.0 specific gravity1.025 colour yellow what does means kindly tolled me thanks?

What's going on?: A lab test result without knowing symptoms is not helpful here. Why was the test done? Did you follow instructions when you gave the sample? (Clean catch is necessary). If the test was for a routine physical, repeat it in a week. White blood cells in a male's urinalysis is worth further checking, or just repeating if no symptom. Talk to your doc about it. ...Read more
