    I have had an itchy rash over my scalp, neck and face for nearly 2 weeks now and don't know what it is. I have been to the Doctors and have been treated for eczema and scabies but it hasn't made a difference. I also have itchy bumps on my hands and it is spreading further down my chest. It can get very inflamed and when I scratch there is a burning sensation. Any ideas?

    Speaking from experience it is unlikely you have a long term medical problem given that it has only started one year ago. Speak to the doctor about the Iontopheresis treatment it sounds more appropriate. Mind you after the treatment the saliva in your mouth dries up so I would recommend some oily foods to eat.

    Im EXACTLY the same, i get sweaty hands feet and armpits! i went to the ddoctors and they also gave me a rolling thing to roll over my hands, when i put it on my hands dry up but they go all wrinkly and dont stay dry for that long! when i have to do dancing with boys in P.E its embaressing because i have to explain the problem!

    I have been informed of my having Dupuytren`s Contracture by my GP (2012), in both hands this giving me three years in which I`d lose use of both hands. Two others in the family (both Females)also have this condition. My question yet unanswered by anybody is: Why are my hands/fingers being effected in the exact opposite to that of Dupuytren`s? I am unable to bend my fingers so Why is this so, and is it possible that my hands are being effected by two conditions at the same time the second being Carpel Tunnel Syndrome? If so, what treatments are available and what are the prospects of regaining full use of my fingers?

    Sounds like you might have a urine infection if it burns when you pee. Or you may have chlamydia. Go to your doctors, it will be 100% confidential, and explain the problem, they will test you. I have had urine infections, they're not nice. However, I sometimes find after sex, it burns a bit when I pee, for a couple of days, because I get a bit of tearing quite often.

    My hands are constantly getting very hot, to the extent of small blisters that occur in 24 hours of my hands heating up, at first they look like frog spawn until they burst open. They then open therefore the cream that i have been perscribed cannot be put on. The cream only dries my hands and stops the burning. I've been to see a specialist but it didn't lead anywhere. I've had this condition all my life and would like to have it sorted once and for all. It's drastic but the only way i can dry my hands out quickly and stop the pain is to clean, using the cleaning products dramatically dries my hands and is incredibly sore for a few hours but it stops the pain and my hands heating up.

    hey I'm 17 and have really sweaty hands since I was around 3. I have tried dryclore 3 different times but it just made my hands all cracked, red and burning. In the past year I have been reffered to 3 diffrent doctors in a hospital who have not helped and just reffered me to other doctors. I have been told of 2 treatments available. One of which is Botox in my hands and the other is an operation where they cut a nerve in your spine BUT they can only do one hand at a time as they need to puncture your lung! If anyone has any other solutions please help! I get so embarrassed by it especially when people notice it. Thank you to anyone who helps.

    Hi Melanie, Sounds like you may have cystitis which is a bladder infection. If you see your doctor they will be able to give you an antibiotic, if it comes back again you can try and control it by drinking lots of water, cranberry juice & if you are sexually active, urinating straight after intercourse to avoid infection. But check with your doctor. Hope this was helpful!

    Hi, please help I have vaginal burning since the past 4.5 months and it is agony. I do not have discharge but constant burning and now the clitoris is burning too. I have noticed that eating sugary products flares it up and it gets worst before my period.

    hello I have recently got through what I think you are suffering from. At first I thought I had become allergic to my own cervical mucus I was also very itchy and burny on the outside with swelling also. The Dr treated me for thrush, then BV both diagnosis were wrong. I ended up diagnosing myself. I had CV -- Cytolytic vaginosis is a condition and not an infection, caused by the excessive growth of the useful lactobacillus bacteria around the vulva and vaginal area, caused because I had started taking probiotics (actimel drinks etc) so it caused a good bacteria overload in my vagina. As soon as I stopped probiotics it went away hope this helps you

    I have the almost the same problem I have constant burning sensations and sometimes numbness in the vaginal area ..I seen 4 different Dr's who said first was a bladder infection then a yeast infection I\ve been on many meds and nothing cured it ..and I can't get a sex drive because of the awkward feeling and I always feel like I have to empty my bladder even when I just did then the burning gets worse..grrr someone help me

    I was about your age when I noticed my hands were sweating. I had to wear a glove at school because I couldn't hold a pencil. I was in grade 7. I tried all those things too and nothing worked. My mom then took me to see a dermatologist and he prescribed Glycopyrrolate 3mg. WHAT A GREAT MEDICINE. I take one pill a day.I can't believe it! I can now high five and shake hands with everyone! The doctor said that I might out grow it. I,m 20 yrs old now and still take the medication. It has worked wonders!!

    i have problems with my hands sweating, when ever i go to shake hands or hold my boyfriends hand, my hands are always really sweaty and i just dont know how to stop it, ive tried using alcohol gel and washing my hands excessivly but it just wont work, i need help :( and will i have this all my life or is it just a stage in my teens?

    Hi John, Go to your G.P. I'm not sure if the burning is another issue based on what you wrote. Burning from the tightness or for example burning from peeing. You also might want to try slow masturbation sessions using a long, slow stroke along with the cream might help stretch the skin some but don't over do it.

    I'm 14 now and i've had my hands are like niagara falls. It wont stop sweating which is hard to live with because when i'm at school I feel like hiding my hands because people will think that that my hands are gross. I can't even write something without having my hands sweat all over the paper. Is there a way to get rid of my sweaty palms forever?

    Samuel, your teacher is certainly not educated!! and rude to boot.. Anxiety, keep it in check it makes it worst. Your condition is very very very prevelant. Go and talk to a Dermitologist and get a better understanding of why this is happening and the options to suit you. The water treatment with electric currents, but recently they have been placing a drug into the water and finding it gives a far better result than the original way. Try Dri Chlor over the counter specialized roll on product for the hands. Applied at night prior to be, then place some gloves on or cotton socks over your hands. Do this 3 or 4 nights straight. Sorbeline with glisterne if it gets to dry during day, as you dont want to crack your skin. Your feet,but NIVEA SILVER ION antipersperate and spray and let dry on your feet. Its is the silver in it that what stops it. Samuel, dont be embarrassed about shaking hands, just say politely you rather not and tell them why and be light hearted about it. It is not the 18 century anymore, people are more open, knowledgeable (except your teacher, cant get over that, sorry) and accepting of the differences between us. We dont hide people away anymore. Samuel get up and out and SHINE.

    is it the semen that is burning you? and now you have stopped him coming inside you you don't suffer with the burning sensation? because i get a really severe burning sensation too when this happens.

    I have suffered from severe sweating on my hands since I can remember and I never knew there was an actual disorder until watching the programme! I just thought it was something I had an would just have to deal with. My hands are like the womans on the programme, like they get severly wet that sometimes it is dripping off my hands. I find it embarrasing going to the shops and handing over money because the money is always wet and if people ever accidently touch my hands they always say how gross it is! I am always hiding my hands away and if i am ever in a situation where i have to touch someones hands I start to panick which makes them sweat worse! I really, really would like a solution to this! Has anyone had the surgery? How did it go for you?

    Just like yourself, i had always suffered from sweating on the palms. It became an increasing problem when i went to high school, so i went to my doctor who referred me to a dermatologist. I went through Iontophoresis treatment which wasnt successful and i found it quite painful. Eventually, after trying various gels and creams i was told i could get the operation. In december i had the operation for the right hand, all went well so in january i had the operation for the left hand. A few days after the surgery, my left hand felt clammy, but i phoned the surgeon and he informed me that this could happen but it would soon dry up, and the next day my hand was dry. So i am really pleased with the results and my advise would be to not give up trying to get the right treatment for you. If one treatment fails, theres other treatments out there,dont suffer. My confidence has increased and i can now do a lot more things without worrying about sweating!

    A redness appears on my hands (mainly knuckles), especially when I get hot. It sometimes feels like it's burning and my knuckles go bright red/pink. It seems that the more activity I do the more red they get and also if I have a bath or shower they go very red! Can anyone help.....???

    I have suffered from this vaginal burning for at least 14 yrs. I bumped into a web site only this past week which suggested I up my intake of echinacea 500 mg 4x a day, oil of oregano 500 mg 2x a day, and now I have incorporated incorporated vitamin C 1000mg 3x a day. The burning have subsided tremendously. I feel like finally I'm on the right track to being healed of this horrible burning!

    I am 14 yrs old and I have noticed that from the age of 6 I have had really cold hands. My hand are always a deep red colour. In cold places my hands turn blue, like when i'm outside. My hands, in winter, swell up and then i can't even curl my hands up into a fist. I am very worried and not sure what to do. Do i have Raynaud’s Syndrome or is it somehting else?

    It sounds like you do have Raynaud's. i'm 25 and have had the same problem for years where i can't even bend my fingers as it hurts so much. Went to the doctors and was told not alot can be done for Raynaud's, but best thing is to try and keep them warm. try not to worry, so many people suffer from this.
