Hi I.m 30 and have had a breast enlargement. Everything went well it was done 5 months ago. Over the last month or so my nipples have become really dry and flaky they feel all cracked, I still have no sensation since my op I know this can be normal. There is no pain really just a slight ache very rarely. Is this normal for them to be so cracked and dry?

The docs just sent me for a camera in each end ,which found nothing . Also go to loo more frequentley than I should .I also get dry cracked skin on my hands and little bubbles/blisters on some of my fingers at the same time as the temporary eczema
Your question sounds like a setup for a coeliac disease diagnosis! I had all these symptoms which are now all clear with a gluten free diet, and for eczema which I also had on my hands it was cured by Tissue salts for skin disorders (Scuessler brand works for me)
Since I have started the menopause 2 years ago (I now no longer have periods, just hot flushes) I have found sex with my partner extremely painful. It doesn't hurt inside, it just stings outside around the entrance to my vagina almost as if the skin is going to tear and feels a bit like when you have cracked lips - it's it's fine until you stretch the area and then it splits slightly and starts to bleed. It's not dry like cracked lips though. i've tried lubrication but it doesn't help. My partner is being very understanding but I am getting very frustrated and upset.
I too have had this problem and much stinging after sex. I found that using a lubricant made it less uncomfortable, there's one you can get that lasts a few days from one application which is better than having to interrupt proceedings. But I think it would be best to see your GP about bleeding, just to reassure yourself that the problem is delicate skin. Hope this helps.
im 14 and for a year now i always seem to have sweaty hands i went to the doctors and they gave me a rolling thing to put over my hands but this just dried it up and made my hands sore, my armpits and feet always get hot to im terrified of injections what else can its sooooo embarrassing??
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! PLEASE can someone help me find a cure for this, i hate it and i dont want to have it for any longer! :(
please can you help me, 15 weeks ago I gave birth to daughter #3, and 3 days after she was born my hands and fingers started to itch like crazy and tiny little blisters appeared, these blisters burst and the fingers have very deep splits and are bleeding, the skin is rough and sore and now the pads on my fingers have become rough and is now splitting, and becoming like deep cuts. they almost heal up when they start itching again, I have tried everything even going to the doctors and having creams and steroid creams/ ointments even tape, I can't wash my hands in anything including plain water as it burns. it is now starting to spread up my arms and I have patches on my legs. I have suffered with eczema on my face for the last 24 years, could this be part of it. Having my 3rd child was a bit of a shock. the birth was only 6 mins and she came 9 days early. I hope you can help me as I am really depressed, I can't even open a bottle lid without my pads on my fingers splitting open. I can't use soaps or any creams, remedies as they all burn and make my skin even more sore dried and cracked, and cause the tiny blisters to come back ten times worse.
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?
I have dupthrens and going to have surgery to have the facia removed.yes you can have it in both hands usally.from the ring finger to pinky.but do not have the needle down it dosent help had it done on the left hand.and.carpel tunnel has a lot to do with it. The needle is just a tempery fix but even after surgery.it can still come back. Oh this can.even go.to your feet the toes
