Conditions with symptom: 'cracked palms'
I'm 18 and I've always had flat nipples and the actual nipple has always been cracked and crusty, they come out slightly with stimulation but don't stay out and I've not found a cream to stop them from being cracked. is there a cream or something I could try to stop them being cracked?
I'm 20 years old I have really small boobs and its embarrassing I need help
Im 19 & Its Asthough My Nipples Look Like They Are Cracked Its Like Bits Of Hard Skin, Like The Pips On A Buger?! & They Are REALLY REALLY Sensitive Like When I Put My Bra On It Tickles Them, But Im More Conserned About The Cracked Sort Of Thing? Can You Tell Me What This Is & If Its Normal???!
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?
Hi for the last 6 months my palms of my hands have become very very lined and wrinkly looking i was told it might be atopic dermatitis but not sure the tops of my hands look fine but my palms seem to be getting worse i swear they look worse than my 65yr old nans and im only 16 help!
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.
Hi, I have been suffering with what my Doctor diagnosed as dermatitis on the palms of my hands. She has prescribed numerous creams, most of which are steriod based. I have been using these creams for over a year now but nothing is working and the condition is worsening. I always protect my hands with gloves when working. I will upload some pics if someone could tell me how me how to do it. The pain is getting really bad now, my skin is getting large cracks and the condition is spreading to my wrists. Please help me as I am very concerned about the fragile skin on my wrists suffering in the same way as my palms. Thank you Sharon.
mine is the same its driving me mad it gets worse when im hot
I have been suffering from the same thing for over 4 months now and I have tried everything from herbal to steroids tablet form and creams. I had got to the point where it was hard to carry on day to day things in life. Now I found tht it was just on my hands it started to spread to my wrist. You should look into the gloves u wear as this can make it worse even though it may not be the cause to the problem. As the heat and sweating makes it worse. I have been on treatment now called Toctino and this has a very high success rate and I'm half way through and it seems to be working already. If its that bad you need to mention u suggle with day to day things and u may b put on this! I hope this helps?
my friends since teenage aged had a hyperhidrosis. two years ago he had undergone surgery to remove both the sweat glands. before surgery, he had a problem on the palms sweat and feet, but after surgery the sweat on the palms have gone and come out a lot of sweat on his chest up to his feet. he had met with a surgeon to talk about the problem of sweat. but the surgeon told him that he could not do anything. This problem has caused my friends suffer from depression and often blame himselves.
I have got warts some big and some very small and they appear to be many in my palms and under the feet. The problem started back in 1998, and I hoped they will disappear on their own but unfortunately they even multiplied over the years. I have seen my doctor and been referred to a dermatologist, but nothing really helped. I was prescribed tablets, creams but they did not help. I was referred to wart specialist but little was done to try to help me as he only scrub them off, but in few days they grow back again. My hands and feet got lumps due to the warts, at times I have to cut them off using a razor blade, and I can only cut the big ones leaving the small one that I have to scrub every week. My skin has become very hard and rough. I recently found out that my 13 year old daughter she's developing the same problem. She has got them in her hand palms as well as under her feet, even though they are small but they appear to be many. Please could you kindly help.
