Hi. I am female, 61 years of age, so-so active, diabetic for about 3 yrs. Lately I am noticing my hair falling out more that usual, white spots on my hands and underarms, fatigued more than usual. I am not due for blood work for a couple of months, but normally everything checks out. My diabetes is usually a little high (6.1 to 6.4). Could I possibly have a vitamin deficiency that could be is causing these issues? Please advise. Thank you. Vicki Harbarger

Hey ... I Have had a Penil problem for months now .. It has been diagnosed as Dermatitis, a Fungus, and now Eczema ... The only time it "burns" when i pee is when im dehydrated and my pee is diluted, and its not even bad, other than that its normal. Im using Protopic Ointment 0.1% But that seems to make my Penis burn like a rash .. and Desonide Ointment 0.05% which is fine. I had a STD test like 5 months ago and it came back negative i was tested for every thing but Herpes. So whats the deal when this problem just WONT go away??

Are all cortisone shots used synthetic anymore and what is the difference in effectiveness when used? I recently had a cortisone shot but no one ever mentions synthetic or natural and I forgot to ask the doctor but will next time. Is the natural hormone still used?

Dear Dr. For months now I have had tiny clear fluid filled blisters on my hands and feet. It started out looking like a foot fungus on my right foot & soon spread to my left hand & then my left foot & right hand. My primary Dr. gave me 20 days of Fluconazole 150mg & my hands cleared up but my feet didn t clear up all the way. It then turned into what looked like a severe burn & began to bleed & crack until I could hardly walk. I was sent to a dermatologist (nurse practitioner) who said it was psoriasis & I was given Clobetasol Propionate ointment & it cleared it up, but then it came right back & the ointment seems to have no effect on the clear fluid filled bumps until they have turned into a red, dry, sore...The ointment does nothing until the blisters have broken & turned into a painful mess. For some reason I don t think it s psoriasis, because the blisters are never filled with puss, just a clear water looking fluid, this has left me unable to even do housework at times & makes me fear working in my yard because of the pain on the bottom of my feet. What do you think I may have & what can or should I do? I also now have pitting on 5 of my finger nails & I think it was caused by those fungus pills, I don t know what I have. What do you think it could be & what should I do?? Please help! Thank you, Rob
