Psychiatrist 's  Response
ANY CLEANSER HAS ONLY ONE ACTION TO REMOVE DIRT FROM SURFACE OF SKIN AND PREVEN KERETANIZATION,THEY ARE AS GOOD AS ORDINARY SOAP.BASICALLY FACE HYGINE SHOULD BE MAINTAINED BY WASHING FACE IN REGULAR INTERVALS AND WHEN COMING FROM AREAS OF DIRT.PEELING CREAM WILL NOT CAUSE ANY ADDITIONAL BENIFIF ,THEY NOT EVEN REMOVE FULL DIRT FROM SKIN PORES,THEY ARE POOR CLEANSER COMPARED TO ORDINARY SOAP.
AVOID THESE PRODUCTS AND MAINTAIN GOOD FACE HYGINE .

hi
clean & clear is good one and will not damage ur skin in future
u can use it 2-3 times a day
cetaphil is best one
peeling cream must not be use without dermatologist advise.
chance of skin damage is there
avoid direct and indirect sun exposure.
u need not to worry about anything if u follow my advise.

I have used dermovate cream in my face for little eczema spots but was told that is very bad...that it is a very strong steroid and will damage my skin. I have done this for years and seen no side effects or problems. The question is therefore two-fold: -should I discontinue using it in this way? -if so what should I use as a replacement?

Hello, I had 2 small patches of dry skin, one on each palm, which gradually grew to encompass most of the area of the palm. Whilst the skin on forms a white border which is slightly peeling in apprearnce, the skin in the centre of the palm has grown in quite tight and ever so slightly leathery. I was thinking this could possibly be a form of eczema, but your judgement would be greatly appteciated. Thank-you very much for your help.

I am having trouble with my feet and hands. extremely dry skin - eczema-like on my hand, and skin is cracking leaving deep knife-like splits in heels, ball of foot, and fingers. My entire right foot is swollen and it is extremely painful to put any weight on it at all. I am afraid the foot is infected. Should I go to emergency clinic? My efforts with Neosporin & wrapping are not working & this has been ongoing for about 2 weeks now.
