Suffering from eczema below penis. Took pimecrolimus and Tacrolimus. How to get cured? - Online Doctor Chats
i am suffering from skin disease from past 3+ yrs. I have consluted with many dermatologist regarding the same but still it is not cured. Can you pls elaborate if it can be cured.
can u mention , what exact condition are you having ?
I am having this on the below side of my sense organ they call it eczema with lot of itching, redness and skin got tight with patches.
You mean the nose ?
No it is below the penis.
you meant sex organ , ok
has the medications advised, helped you with regard tot he symptoms
to some extent not exactly
Eczema or dermatitis is a type of allergic skin condition that causes dryness, scaling & redness with intense itching.
With time there occurs flaking and if bacterial, fungal or viral infection is introduced by scratching, the affected lesions begin to ooze.
is it curable?
this is a form of immune reaction in the body , and since this is a reaction of the body, complete cure is difficult
in some cases, complete control can be achieved with medications
You mean it is not curable.
but there will be recurrences, like ups and downs
yes, it is not curable completely, in many individuals
this is due to the fact that, they have a hyperactive immune system
but in mild cases, it can be controlled
so what to do now?
There are many people who claim that way
but i have many patients , who have tried that and failed too
ok so, pls suggest what should i do now.
the medications Tacrolimus and Picrolimus, prescribed by your doctor, are good immunomodulators and are the best treatment options in such cases
in my opinion, you should continue the medications for some time
should i continue with the same
at least , for 3 -4 months
do they have any side effects
Eczema is a chronic condition, but you can control it with treatment, by avoiding irritants, and by keeping the skin well-moisturized.
sorry by irritants you mean....
some irritants, that worsen the condition, include - stress, allergens, mold, recurrent colds, viral infections, dry skin, contaminated water , etc
dyes in soaps, etc
Avoid scratching the rash or skin if you can
Relieve the itch by using a cold compress
Keep the skin moist (called lubricating or moisturizing the skin).
Moisturizers should be free of alcohol, scents, dyes, fragrances, or other chemicals.
Keep water contact as brief as possible and use less soap than usual. Short, cooler baths are better then long, hot baths.
After bathing, it is important to apply lubricating creams, lotions, or ointment on the skin while it is damp. This will help trap moisture in the skin
following these measures, will help to a great extent
I have gone to cowurine therapy's website aslo
ok , i am not aware, how helpful it will be
thanks a lot for your advise.
You are welcome
