Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of dull and rough skin which is due to loss of natural moisture and can occur due to bacterial or fungal infection.

I would suggest you to apply moisturizer throughout the day to retain moisture. You should drink plenty of water and make use humidifier at home and apply vitamin E oil at night. You should eat green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits.You can start honey usage on daily basis.

If condition persists for more then a week or get worse consult dermatologist for proper diagnosis so that doctor can rule out any infection.Doctor may prescribe oral/topical antibiotics or antifungal medications depending upon the condition.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari

All of a sudden my skin from face to feet got hot and red. My hands turned white and the circulation in my hands did not seem right. I got the chills and became very cold and shaky. I took a shower because I thought maybe it was from a body lotion but I have been using it for several weeks. It is called gold bond. This happened on Sunday and again just an hour ago. I have no idea what is going on

I have had deep cysts in my underarms and upper inner thigh area. They are often painful and drain either by pressure or on their own. They typically appear right before I menstruate. I have a cream to apply for treatment but I am wondering if I can get microdermabrasion to help with the discoloration from scarring and for just a smoother unclogged underarm.
