Your Questions About Eczema

Susan asks…

My hands start to crack, turn red, and bleed during the winter. What do I do?

admin answers:

That happened to my hands. Carry around a really good lotion. They’re just dry.

I also took gloved and basically filled them with this lotion for eczema and put my hands in them.

Make sure to wear really good gloves when you’re outside.

Richard asks…

What is the driest skin known to mankind?

I have dry skin so severe and so extreme that in just 6 hours my hands can go from normal to cracking and sometimes bleeding. It will then take two weeks, if I’m lucky, of daily moisturizing for it to even begin to look almost normal again. This led me to wondering, what is the worst and most dry skin disease known to mankind?

How do I deal with dry skin from the cold weather?

My hands and face are all dry and rough and my wife has started to comment about how bad it looks. How can I stop this? it looks unsightly and like some sort of eczema condition. I always get this in the winter but in the warmer months my skin is soft and supple, thanks.

Inside with plenty of water, outside with a moisturiser – use something like E45 for the really dry flaky bits, and a mild Men’s skincare product for the rest.

Hey There

Nickel is a silvery-white metal that can be found in nature. It is usually mixed with other metals to produce alloys. For example, nickel-iron, which is used to manufacture STAINLESS STEEL, is the most common nickel alloy. Other nickel alloys are used to make coins, costume jewelry (i.e., earrings, watchbands, rings, necklaces, necklace clasps, bracelets), bra or girdle fasteners, zippers, snaps, buttons, suspender clips, hair-pins, studs, eyeglass frames, pens, handles, utensils, paper clips, keys, and tools. Nickel is tightly bound up is stainless steel, especially surgical stainless steel.

A nickel allergy is a reaction that develops after initial and/or brief, or repeated and/or prolonged, exposure to nickel or nickel-containing items, depending on the individual’s susceptibility. Degree of reaction also varies by person. Specifically, nickel allergy is a contact allergy, which is an allergic skin reaction in response to being exposed to a contact allergen or irritant, such as nickel. A nickel allergy can occur at any age, and typically manifests a few days after first contact as eczema (allergic contact dermatitis), which appears as an itchy, dry/crusty, and red/pigmented skin rash with watery blisters. The affected area is usually restricted to the site of contact, although it could also be found on other parts of the body. Once a nickel allergy has developed, it is usually a chronic condition, often being life-long.

One can be tested for nickel allergy by going to a dermatologist for patch testing. Patch tests are safe skin test procedures, which involve the direct application of tiny quantities of several suspected contact allergens, to the skin of the upper back using hypoallergenic tape. The concentrations of these allergens are low so that they won’t cause irritation or reactions in non-allergic individuals, but are high enough to cause a positive response in sensitive individuals. The allergens are in contact with the skin for 48 hours, undisturbed, and then examined at 48, hours after application. An individual is allergic to nickel (or other contact allergen) if a positive reaction is noted. However, patch tests may produce vague or unclear results that may require further examination. This means that sometimes, the cause cannot be determined.
Hope this helps

George asks…

Why are my hands darker than my arms and the rest of my body?

I think I have eczema on my hands as they always crack and bleed in the cold, but I’ve always had a noticeable difference between my hands‘ and my arms’ skin tone. It’s like there’s a permanent tan line around my wrists. In the winter my hands will always turn much redder, and it will stop at the wrists. I’ve got not idea why this might be.

You may have a condition called Raynaud’s disease. It usually maifests itself in response to cold, but it can also show up in response to stress. Check here.


Jenny asks…

Why do i have a red smooth spot on my penis ?

It is on the tip of the penis, on the top. It has been there for 4 months. I think it has gotten bigger since then. I know its not an STD because I am still a virgin. I think it may be eczema. I have eczema on my arms and I scratch them sometimes and maybe I touched my penis directly after scratching the eczema on my hand.
I have tried using Euricin but I haven’t seen any difference. I am only 15, I think it would be embarrassing to tell my Dad this. Like I said, it does nothing to me. It doesnt hurt to pee and there are no bumps. It itches sometimes, but other than that it does nothing to me and it been there for 4 months. Its like its just there.

admin answers:

If it’s been there for four months, why haven’t you done anything about it before now ~ See your doctor
