Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

You have not given any details of the dermatitis ...is it itchy,any oozing from the lesion,discoloration,your age,what all cream you have used till now,any other associated symptoms etc.
There are no cosmetic surgeries which can work in case of dermatitis(if at all it is).Plz don't get mis-leaded by any false hopes made by anybody.
regards,
Dr.chawda

I had major AC joint surgery a few years ago on my right shoulder . I tore all three ligaments completely. My movement is good and strength is pretty good although not near as strong as my left. I have started to lift weights again and I think I can get the strength back. However, my biggest concern is cosmetic. The repaired shoulder appears slouched and is nowhere near a broad as the left. Is there anything I can do or any procedures that can be done to fix this?

Hi Doctor..My name is Harshita and I am 27 years old. I reside in Bangalore and will be here till 31st July. I have a brown melasma kinda spot on my right cheek which I got due to application of my mom s old lipstick , when i was in class 3rd. since i used it as a blusher/ruse that time for some function and to wipe it off i used a rough cloth and rubbed it off rigorously ..the portion where i had applied lipstick turned red that time.but next day it turned slight brown as if i had a chemical reaction and my skin got burned slightly (like a sun burn) . since then We ( me n my parents) have consulted all sorts of doctor.. homeopathic. ayurvedic home, remedies. dermatologist , have gone through dermabarssaaion ( 5 sessions) chemical peels (7 sessions) but nothing happened .. Doctors say that it is a birth mark ..but i know it s not as it happened because of application of that old lipstick of my mom . currently I had one laser treatment on 6th pf May ( suggested by Dr. Sujaya Hedge in Bangalore) and the second treatment is due on 15th of July - fractional laser) NOw my worry is she suggested Q- switched NG yag laser but the machine which she used is fractional laser and i didn t see any change since i had my first treatment. I want to know if my spot can be treated using cosmetic surgery and that too 100% .. its not that visible at times but sometimes it is very visible especially in pictures . i want to get rid of it completely as i m getting married in NOvember .. Plz suggest me an appropriate treatment . i would really appreciate if it can go off my face permanently before my marriage without any scars. Thank a lot in advance for your time and valuable advice. I am looking for treatment in Bangalore before 31st of July if possible.

Hi, I have had UTI like symptoms for 5 years. I have had many, many cultures - all neg. I have also had a bladder ultrasound - again normal, I have tried creams for dermatitis etc. I just read recently that Latent TB can show symptoms of a UTI - 5 years ago - when symptoms first appeared, I was working in an orphanage in Central Asia (ex-soviet state) when drug resistant TB was rife and visiting children regularly in a TB hospital, so I have definitely been exposed. I had terrible pneumonia last year which took a long time to diagnose, and for a while they suspected TB but it didn t show up in my lungs. Could it still possible cause for my UTI - is it worth getting checked?

I am a female and am 12 years old and i have eczema(dermatitis). I have had these small red bumps and a rash on my left inner thigh. It really hurts when I walk. I have looked up a lot of info and some say it can be due to eczema. I usually always have rashes. I have had this rash with small red bumps for one week going on two weeks. I am super scared and nobody knows. I have put a warm washcloth with warm water on it for about a half hour and it just goes down a bit then starts again. I am not in any sexual incourse and I am super scared. Please help me. I dont know if it can get worse. Please.

I have a red rash on my chest. I was wondering if it could have been caused by red rice yeast. I had been taking one tablet until about two weeks ago, my gp suggested I up the dosage to two, then eventually three. I have not changed laundry detergent; in fact, I use the dye-free detergent. Could it be caused by a virus? Or is it dermatitis? I did have a rash on my hand this past spring which I thought was caused by contact with my horses hay. I was careful to use gloves and it went away. It seems to me I remember reading that yeast causes rashes. Thank you.

My wife has had sores on her arms and legs for about 1 year. They're not painful unless she picks at them. When she does pick at them, there's a small, hard, round ball that comes off. Attached is a photo. Any ideas what this could be?
