    hydrocortisone cream seems to help the affected area on the inside of my thighs, it doesn't feel nice but i get relief for a while and i get more choice of what to wear. it's normally used for people with dry or damaged skin (especially eczema sufferers). key thing is never to pick or scratch at things, i know from force of habit that it most deffinately doesn't help :/

    I have itchy bottom for last six months now white scaly patches appeared on the affected itchy area Night the itch is high than day,I apply keto ointment on the skin for relief.what could be the cause and treatment.

    I've recently developed a red itchy rash inbetween my breasts. The skin there is scaly and rubs away quite easily when I scratch it. I do have quite large breasts so I thought maybe it might be some sort of fungal infection because of heat and moisture but i've tried athlete's foot treatments for about a week (twice daily)and it doesn't seem to be working. Please could someone help me out?

    Start off by keeping this area clean and try cleaning it 2-3 times a day or as much as needed. Your skin would be rubbing away easily because of sweat and friction on you skin from clothing and other parts of your body. If rash persists try an anti-fungal cream.

    I have had constant itchy lower legs with what I think is heat lumps , this has been going on for just over a year. it's red and my lower legs are now quite scarred, the lumps are usually red, raised and sometimes quite firm with dry scaly skin from scarring and constant scratching. I've used so many different creams from different antihistamine creams and antibacterial cream and camaline lotion for chicken pox nothing has worked so far , I've been to the doctors and haven't even asked to look at my legs , they've just given me strong antihistamine tablets , I know I've only been taking them for a week but I've seen no improvement, some one please help me I can't take it anymore!!!does anyone know what this may be??

    I started itching with a rash of small red lumps on my arms around 6 months ago. The itching was so intense i would scratch till the lumps would bleed consequently leading to scabs which i would also scratch off with more bleeding. This has now progressed all over my body from the neck down. I must have hundreds of lumps. Like yourself i have used countless creams and antihistamines to no avail. I even treated myself for scabies in desperation ! About a month ago after a referral to a dermatologist i finally had a skin biopsy and some blood tests. i have now recieved the results confirming a condition called Nodular Prurigo. The cause is unknown. I am due to start UVB treatment on Monday. This is the only thing known to help. I hope this works because if it doesn't i will go out of my mind !

    Do you have varicose veins? If the itching is on your lower limbs it could be varicose eczema. A low dose steroid is good for specific areas and compression hosiery can help.

    I am 23 and have always suffered from ezcema. About 2 years ago I developed ezcema on my nipples. It goes through cycles; it starts off as red, itchy and scaly. The skin then sloughs off and it becomes painful and looks like a raw open wound, continually weeping plasma. It has been treated with steroid creams, moisturisers, antibiotics and antihistimines by mutilple doctors and a specialist dermatologist. None of these treatments have had a long term effect. It has continued to get worse, but everytime I go to see my doctor it seems better. The doctor therefore doesn't seem to grasp how painful and upsetting this is. It is very different from the ezcema I have on other parts of my body. Could it be something other than ezcema?

    Hi, I am 16 and I have suffered ezcema since birth and hasn't been easy to cope with. But the cycle that you have wrote sounds normal. I some times had it red, itchy and scaly and it also is really painful but this is normal effects or ezcema getting at its worse stage but if you go to the beach one day go in the sea for about an hour no matter how much painful it is still stay in there and then put on your cream(s) and you would see difference it might not be a lot but it will get better if you apply your cream(s) before and after you have a bath or shower. Your condition is ezcema nothing else I am sure of it. I hope my advice has helped you and answer your question.

    I have suffered with the same problem or years, I am 41 years of age. there is no smell or discharge and Im sick of being told its thrush - been checked for STD years ago just in case!! it starts with an itch always outside my vagina and round my pubic hair, I itch till it bleeds and cracks open - it then heals after a few days with a scaly skin which is so dry it itches and there I go again scratching till its raw - its like being on a roller coaster - I have used allsorts of over the counter creams, this is every minute of the day - I bath in salt water and dont use any smellies doen there. getting really fed up now as I think it may be some form of skin psoriasis? any help would be appreciated and its getting me down. thanks

    I have experienced the same symptoms as for 18 months now. Initially, I was treated by my GP for thrush, then referred to a genito-urinary clinic after 6 months. They did all the usual STI checks and came to the conclusion it was contact dermatitis and gave me a mild steroid cream saying it was due to an allergy. 6 months later, still no improvement so back to the GP. I was still suffering from itching, burning, stinging, bleeding and splitting around the labia/clitoris and now also the anal area. Again, my GP gave me a thrush treatment so I turned to doing my own research. I recently returned to my GP and asked to be referred to a female genitalia dermatology clinic. My own research has led me to believe this could be vulval psoriasis or similar and all the advice shouts to being referred to dermatology NOT gynaecology. I have a hospital appt in a month's time. The white scaly patches (although sometimes a shiny red patch in this area) mentioned by some comments, are a symptom of lichen sclerosis and lichen planus. My GP tells me I haven't got this but as the long-term effects can change the architecture of the vagina, I will take the dermatologist's advice on this!

    In about March 2010 after masturbating and then sleeping without washing the next day I had developed white patches on my penis head (glans). Well I regret it now but basically I panicked and scratched the skin badly and left my self with scar marks there, almost like deep lines on my penis head. Ever since the skin on my penis can be very dry. The skin now a days looks ok when my penis is flaccid and it can be ok when I get an erection. But after I get an erection and the penis goes flaccid again the skin looks withered, dry, wrinkly and scaly. The skin goes like this also after ejaculatio. After being to the doctors I have used Canesten but to no affect. I am now using Bio OIl to try and stop the skin going like this but im not sure if this will work, I am a virgin so I know the problem is not an STI. Does anyone have any advice?? Thanks.

    I am 52, had a hysterectomy at 47 and gradually I have had increased itching round the vulva area. The skin looks very pale and a bit scaly and also sometimes splits. The itching seems to intensify 10 fold during the night when I could scream as the need to scratch is so awful. It keeps me awake half the night unless I use Eurax which will numb it for around 4 hours but a second dose doesn't seem to work then. I am going out of my mind with this constant itching. Is this normal for a woman who is going through the menopause? It puts me off sex as well as the skin seems to taut and likely to split. Any ideas from anyone with a similar problem will be gladly received! The hair in this area has gradually started disappearing as well, as over the years I presume it more skin is turning into scar tissue

    I recently went for a walk through a heavily wooded area in Delaware (not sure if this is a red herring). Within a couple days, I noticed 1) about 20-25 small red (only slightly itchy), raised bumps on my left leg (only a couple on the right), 2) about 10 somewhat scaly, red oval-shaped rashes on my upper right thigh in the crease adjacent to the scrotum, and 3) a scaly red scab on the sulcus (just under the left corona) of my penis. The bumps on the leg are slowly fading (it's been three weeks or more). I take vitamins, naproxen, fish oil, but no illicit meds. I have tried anti-fungal foot spray, aloe, and hydrocortisone, with only little benefit.

    I think I may have this condition too, the descriptions you all give sounds like mine, I have 1 patch on each eye lid. I have found that the last 3 times that I have had a cold they seem toget bigger and puffyer, has any one else had this problem? This time Iv just had a cold they puffed up but have now gone dry and scaly, I dread to think how Im going to live with this if when the scaly bits heal the marks are worse than they were. I found makeup accentuated the marks and only dark eye shadow hides them but that wears off within 30 mins. Coincidently I developed mine just after Id had a baby too. The doctor didnt know what it was and gave me chloranphenical ointment, obviously didnt work. Its just not fare.

    My son 18 months has x-linked ichthyosis, i don't know the cream used on tv but we use balneum plus cream and balneum bath oil which has urea and lauromacrogols in and helps break down the scales we also use hydromol intensive which i think is newish it hydrates his skin and also has urea in making his skin smoother and less scaly in appearance, and for his scalp we use oilatum shampoo, not sure about the spellings but these work well for us, i have been to the doctor loads of times when he was a baby and tried loads of cream combinations until we found the right one for his skin, if you get referred to a dermatologist they have sample creams to try. These creams don't make the problem go away we use them 3 or 4 times a day just to control the problem and in the winter his skin gets drier and more scaly, it reduces the appearance of his problem but it is still there, and as his condition prohibits him from sweating we have also been advised to use sun sense sunscreen just thought id mention it as i had never heard of it and summers approaching so his skin will need protecting i hope this helps someone.

    Embarrassing Bodies TV Programe lits up my hope again... I am now 27YO, and i have suffered scaly skin on my entire body, especially my legs are full of scar marks since i was little girl. And these marks won't fade away, and i find that is really hard for my skin to recover from injuries like mosquito bite, abrassion and so on. I had tried to consult doctor before, and he said my case are more likely to Hyper-pigmentations. My skin problem has totally affected my social life with friends, because i couldn't wear swimsuit or shorts during summer, because of scare to show my scaly legs. I was hoping my wish can be heard, and i was hoping there is a solution for me, to change the condition of my skin appearence and i wish i can wear shorts together like normal people will do daily. Addition, i am currently using Derma Blend body covered creme to covered my scar, when i really need To expose my legs. Really hope to hear a good news from u. Thank you very much.

    Well if you had your foreskin removed your glans will become dry and eventually keratinise what leads to loss of sensitivity.

    Not yet. Keep up the treatment until your foot has no more dry scaly skin or scabs. You are almost cured, you are almost there. Goodluck, because I know this skin ailment is a pain in the butt.

    both my areolas are large and nipples are inverted, one of my areolas is swollen, red and was scaly and im only 16 help!!!

    I have had a problem with scaly type cracks as if the skin is delaminating on my feet they also seem very dry. Lamisil cream helped a bit but it has come back. It is really hard to explain but when you are swimming you feel as if the water gets in and its is creepy and can get sore.
