    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?

    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?

    My consultant has put me on aceterin and i now have clear hands the first time in several years but am still loosing skin on feet but this is not painful the only drawback are the side affects but it is nothing compared with the dry cracked hands and bleeding. it takes a while to kick in and the it gets worse before getting better ( i was not told this) but you have to be prepared

    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, I'm 28 and for the past year and a half have had what i describe as a skin condition on my hands and feet. it started on my hands when i handled dusty boxes at work and got progressively worse! it started off as dry skin then got very sore and cracked and bled when i used my hands. now it has spread to my feet and practically all of the skin on my heel has come off and it oozes pus and blisters. I hate going out in public coz i'm so ashamed of it. my right foot has gotten so bad that sometimes i can't even walk on it.

    Hello I am 17 and have the same problems, except the oozing. I went to my GP and the gave me an anti-histamene called cetirizine hydrochloride, you take one daily, and treat the irratated areas with a steroid cream, keep it up regularly and it clears up without you realising. Try and stay away from chemical substances.

    I have very dried cracked skin along my commonly used fingers and some knuckles. Upon going to my doctors i was told that i have contact dermatitis, prescribed Aquarius cream and sent on my way, this did not help the problem and was then prescribed fucibet cream this help the cracked open wounds but not the problem itself! i have had this problem now for 7years ever since i gave birth to my son?? please anyone who knows what this really is or how i can treat it please help!! i work on a kiosk and people see my hands close up on a regular basis and the reaction isn't always nice to.

    Hi Anita, it was my mum who was on the show. She had started treatment which was a tablet called Aceterin. Which really made a massive difference, but there are alot of side affects. She had cracked lips, cracked eyelids, itchy skin, skin falling off her hands. She was only on the treatment for two weeks when it was stopped as they thought she had lymphoma, but it turned out to be sarcoidosis. Also at the time they found a massive ovarian cyst, so she has just had that removed. So when she is recovered we can hopefully start back on the tablets but a smaller dose. Dont give up, my mum was told there was nothing else the docs could do. Thats why we put her onto the show. Hopefully in the future it works for her and yourself. xx

    i'm not sure if it's eczema or not i know i had it as a child but i'm 18 now and have had horrible dry, cracked, sore, itchy, stinging hands since i was about 16 it's worse on the right hand which is the hand i use most if thats got anything to do it being worse i use gloves to for the washing up and hate getting my hands wet as that iritates them but i'm really not sure what it is but it seems to get worse during the winter but for some reason hasn't been getting better since the warm weather recently as it usually only flairs back up badly during the winter but it's always there any sugestions?

    To aj and anyone else with sweating on your hands, feet or armpits, GO HAVE SOMETHING DONE ABOUT IT. Ask to see your GP and get them to refer you to a dermatologist NOW. I have suffered from palmer hyperhidrosis since I can remember (Mine is so bad that my hands don't just feel wet, they look like I've dipped them in water. The skin on my hands is permanently wrinkled, just like if you put your hands in water ALL day long. My feet had been infected with what is basically athletes foot, all over my feet. There so cracked and bad that I've never worn flip flops.) I have now had iontophroesis. I haven't sweat on my hands or feet for 4 weeks now. It's quite a hard slog as it's 7 treatments in 4 weeks, but then after that you can buy your own machine. It's not scary as you can stop your treatment at absolutely any time, during the treatment, after session 4, whenever. I've tried every single powder, cream and drug on the market and it never worked. (If this didn't work I would have to have my nerves cut. However I am a very extreme case) But iontophroesis worked and my nurse said it has had a 100% success rate so far in her clinic. There are way more treatments than you think to deal with the problem and I would suggest to anyone to go and see a dermatologist. They have seen it all before and there NOT bothered by it.

    Try a cold damp flannel laid across the liver area (this cools the blood down). I keep a bowl of cold water at the side of the bed so that I can keep cooling the flannel! Hope this helps!

    I suffer from pustular psoriasis which affect mainly my hands and feet but can affect other areas too such as head,ears and pubic area. It is very painful and when it is at it's worse I can only walk on tiptoes on the ball of my big toe. It does come in flare ups and I can have times where I am free of it completely but my feet are affected at the moment. It starts with little pus filled blisters which then pop and dry out.the blisters all join together and once all popped leave thick,flaky,painful,cracked skin. I just plaster coal tar or other moistening creams on and then overnight put my hands and feet in plastic bags to keep the areas moist as if they dry out it makes using my hands and feet impossible. When I was 17 I had UVB treatment but it doped not help me at all

    hi shug i had the same as you and also had the light treatment i found the only thing to ever work on me was a ointment called diprosalic iontment it is a steroid based oitment but it realy is the best you will me better in no time i have had everything you could possiably think of but it was the only thing ever to work it also is good for elbows and other hard wearing places

    hi all, i'm no doctor ive had this kind of condition for at least 14 years since i was 16 mainly on one hand, it started as small pimples that would itch to the point i was scratching them in my sleep then turned into dry cracked scaley hands that continued to insanly itch, i also was prescribed cortazones, creams and sent to specialists. Im now 30 i stopped drinking beer 8 months ago and my hands have dramitaclly improved, i still get the itches every now and then but that is cause i dont take enough care of my hand, i use a product called hydraderm, moisturising cream, sorbolene cream with 10% glycerol, perfume free, colour free and non greasy also a prescription called clobetasol oint ointment. Again im no doctor everyone is different, watch what consume, touch, but this may be of some help to someone. remember keep those hands moisturised.

    if u have cracked lips, and perform oral sex on ur female partner, can this cause any problems, (ie), thrush. or can the cracked lips bring on any underlying medical conditions?

    i have chronic hand exzema and been put on a drug called toctino,my hands are still cut and cracked and dry,plus 1 of the side effects are that sunlight or any bright lights are making my face bright red and burning,help

    No matter which ointments you're administered, keeping the skin moisturised is also needed.

    i have chronic exzema on my hands and feet, i also get it badly on the back of my fore arms, i am taking toctino tablets ( 30 mg ),i am on my 6th day, my feet and hands seem to be easing and getting softer, still itchy tho,but try not to scratch, taking anti hestameens, but my arms are very red and still sore, they look like burns, they go alot redder wen i get out of the shower, do you know how long these tablets take to work, thanks
