Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for the query, There is a condition called as pemphigoid gestationis. It appears just after delivery or in the third trimester and subsides on its own. For now you apply calasoft lotion. This will help in reducing the blister and a faster healing. Going to a dermatologist will be much better than going to obs. I would also like to see the lesions. It will help me in giving a closer diagnosis. Please upload a photograph. Waiting for your response. Thank you

I wouldn't say it is particularly painful, unless I touch the area, than there is mild pain/irritation. It feels similar to the sensation of having a grouping of ingrown hairs.

Hello Dr, Iam a 53-year old woman. My skin is comparatively very dry. Since my teenage I am having some itching and irritation at different parts of my feet and elbows and on right knee. I approached many skin specialists, and tried many ointments. They all give temporary cure. A few weeks back, I consulted with a skin specialist and he recommended to take a biopsy to distinguish whether it is eczema or psoriasis; it is confirmed as psoriasis. I did my LFT and having no problem, sonography of my stomach was also conducted, and having no problem.. Now the doctor prescribed Oncortex 7.5 (once in a week for 3 weeks) and Tablet Folic acid 5 mg twice in a week. When I checked Oncortex in the web, i happened to see its side effects. So slightly confused whether to take or not. I need your advice. My dr also said to consult with him after 3 weeks. Hope nothing will happened to me harmful. I have blood pressure and cholesterol, taking medicines for them regularly. Moreover, I am taking tablets for once in a month for Vit B12 deficiency.

Hello Dr., I continue to have boils even after taking three different type of antibiotics. I have sensitive skin and I m easy to break out.

I have mild lupus. I take Plaquenil, Vit d2 1.25MG, and Acetazolamide. Does having lupus causes this problem and what can I do to stop them?
