    Skin peeling does not sound good... If it is your skin, you should nip in an speak to a Doc..

    Hi, you recently had on the show (a couple of Fridays ago)a patient with Melasma - the skin discolouration disorder or hyperpigmentation I have tried so many things that haven't worked. You mentioned that there is a skin lightening or bleaching treatment for it available on precription - can you tell me what the prescriptive product is called? Warm Regards Melanie

    I'm an 19 year old girl, athletic, and veins bulge out over my shins when i'm quite warm. It is embarrassing for me and makes me self conscious about wearing shorts because I'm scared about them showing when i get warm. Is there any sort of surgery I can have to correct this? I don't think they're varicose because they aren't there all the time! Please help

    you should try taking some omeprazole 20 mg and get it from your doctor.

    I an 39 years old.I developed a skin allergy when i reached 30.Every time i go out in a little sun or the weather gets warm i get a really bad itching raised rash any where the sun hits.the doctors have prescribed antihestimines,which did nothing,they now give me steroid tablets which work after 3 days of taking but i am only allowed to take them for 5 days as they can do more damage to me.Could a sun bed possibly cure my skin problem.Im desperate for an answer as i get married in 8 weeks and go to cyprus for my honeymoon.I would be devastated to have this terrible allergy on my wedding day.

    Don't panic, I've had this problem for about 8 years now and I'm 27. I tried everything but nothing worked until this summer. I booked a holiday to turkey for September and a about 4 months before I went I started using a sunbed. I had a 10 minute session once a week . During the holiday I took strong antihistamines and constantly applied a non perfumed factor 50 suncream to my chest and tops of my arms. For the 1st time in 8 years I came home without in spots. Give this a try

    Hi Jill, I know this has been some time now since you posted this but interested to see how you got on in Cyprus? I developed a rash in cyprus 2 years ago when out getting married & was diagnosed with polymorphic light eruption when I got back. Struggle to sit in the sun now as I get a terrible rash over my face & neck. How did the sunbeds work for you?

    I had what I thought was an insect bite on my waistband area that has now turned into a raised rash. The area has small red spots that have blistered and popped making the skin underneath red and warm to the touch. What could it be and what should I do please?

I have tried steroid creams, emolliants, oils, sunbeds, tablets etc and nothings worked on a few occasions my gp prescribed me creams that burnt my skin now I am afraid to be treated by them again although i need help. my partner has left me in discust, i get around 3hours sleep due to itching, have found myself going to the toilet in work to cry and excessively sweat as im to paranoid to wear a short sleeve top when its warm due to my arms. I recently resulted in trying home remedies such as porridge baths, honey, aloe vera oil, cocunut oil, accupuncture also. I no longer have a social life im embarassed to go out and have left college as I couldn't deal with excuses when it came to other girls my age asking me to go on nights out and I couldnt go cause I would be covered up and too warm

    I am a 27 year old female and I have had a problem with extreamly cold hands and feet for a couple of years now following heavy weight loss - my hands and feet got white and my nails and lips go blue. The rest of me then goes completely cold once it starts. I also get a numb and tingaling in them and it takes me hours to warm up - usually only working when I get into a warm bath and get a stinging sensation when the feeling returns to them. I even get this in the warm summer months and find I sually need to wear a jumper even in the summer. Although I can find on occations I overheat rapidly for no reason. I have been to the GP many times but always get told its just to do with poor circulation but after seeing the show I wonder if it is Raynaud’s Syndrome? I also get very weak and dizzy and didn't know if this had anything to do with this symdrome or not? Are there any treatments availible as I hate feeling so cold all the time. :( Please Help!

    hi i am 22 year old female, i have recently been diagnosed with Reynauds syndrome after my fiance saw the show and going to my gp, (i just thought i was cold), anyway my gp gave me this website to look up, www.raynauds.org.uk it has all the information on Raynauds syndrome you could ask for, plus if that does not help you they have a phone number where you can talk to someone about this condition and you can order a free information pack. I hope this helps. :). xx

    hi im 16 and was diagnosed with raynauds as well as Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) which i got as a byproduct of a genetic condition. See if lying flat helps to relieve the cold and blue extremeties and dizziness, then look up POTS on wikipedia and see if u have any of the other symptoms, hope this helps

    hi i have the problem of chilblains in extreme winters, i try to control myself not to rub while itching. but now i find out that even my son 4 year old has also got same problem of chilblains in toe and he is too small for that to control himself while itching. he goes to school and that he can't avoid ,twice a day i dip his foot in warm water of turnip boiled within and add salt, it gives him releif for sometime. while sleeping whenever his foot gets warm it starts itching. is there any other treatment that we can do. becoz i have gone thru this and i know it goes with the winter only. please give some suggestion for my son .

    I use lidocane numbing spray, (it's for waxing and tattooing) i buy it at the local beauty supply store it's like $10 but worth every penny! Also in a pinch Ambesol works too but it's gooey and mint flavored.

    I have been suffering from Shy bladder since high school. I am 48 years old. I discovered when taking a warm bath I had the urge to pee. What I then tried was to use warm water, not hot, warm enough for the skin to bare and pour it over the tip of penis. The sensation enabled me to pee in many stressful moments. The only problem is that warm water is not always available in public toilets, but I hope my suggestion will be helpful if you are struggling to pee and warm water is close by. Ladies I don't know if this will help you.

    I am 60 years old and have had ichthyosis vulgaris from birth. It is probably now the best it has ever been but it will never go away - if I don't do my usual skin regime for a few days it just reverts back to being as bad as ever. I put about two tablespoons of salt - ordinary cheap salt nothing fancy - in my warm bath and I scrub my skin with one of those screwed up plastic things, I think they are called body buffers, then when I'm dry I put on Aqueous cream all over; baby oil or even olive oil are also very good particularly if you rub it in while you are still wet and then pat yourself dry or, if it's warm enough, just let yourself dry! A warm climate always helps my skin, too - shame I live in England! Good luck to you all, I know it's depressing but my skin has definitely got better with time.

    Be gentle with it Steve. Try taking warm baths regularly, as this will soften the skin. Gently try retracting the skin in the warm water and wash the tip as best you can. After a few months of this you should have more movement as it will stretch. Make sure after washing you pull the skin forward again.

    girls, take your time and dont panic.if you want to shave, make sure you shave in the same direction as the hair. iv found the best razors to be the gilette ladies ones(the ones that are really nice colours) and the intuition ones for sensitive skin. they look big and chunky but they have a really nice moisturising block around the blades, and with this one you dont even need shaving cream-just make sure you run warm water over to warm your skin and relax it. if ur cold or tense thats when you end up nicking the skin with the blade, and thats where the itchy red rash comes from. this can also be because you havent wet your skin or put enough shaving gel on. hope this helps x

    Hi there. You might need a steroid cream. Also there is no such thing as extra skin. All your foreskin is meant to be there. Be gentle with it, have a warm bath and manipulate it while the warm water softens the skin. Same thing happened to my husband for a while turned out ge was allergic to the lube we were using, we quit lube and used steroid cream for a but along with stretching exercises and no longer have any issues. Very rarely does a problem like this require anything more. Hope this helps.

    My balls always fell hot/warm and it's really uncomfortable. I also notice that my whole body feels quite warm but my balls being warm are the main problem. What could be causing this and how can I treat it?

    Try boxers shorts

    The doctor diagnosed me with Raynauld's in 2005 but I'm unsure that it is what I have. I get cold very quickly when sitting still and my finger and toe nails go blue. If my hands get cold and I then come indoors where it's warm I can get an awful burning and itching sensation. The worse problem I get is with my thighs. If it's not that warm outside and I go for a walk. My body gets warm but the skin on my thighs and buttocks stays cold. I can feel an attack coming on with a tingling sensation on my skin. If I don't take an antihistamine then soon I will be overcome by the burning and itching from my knees all the way up to my bum. Itching makes it worse but I feel like I need to stick my fingers deep in to my flesh because the itching is unbearable. My skin turns bright red, can appear lumpy like hives and is burning hot to touch. The doctor said there was nothing they could do apart from medication but I would be on this for the rest of my life. Has anyone else tried antihistamines? This helps me. The one a day stuff isn't much use but Benadryl Relief is good as it works quickly.

    I've realised that I have another symptom that I'm not sure is connected. If my feet/legs get cold, even if the rest of me is warm, I suffer will nagging aching legs. I've suffered with this since I was about 7 years old. At the time the doctor told my Mum that I had growing pains. Pain killers don't seem to have much effect and I can find it difficult to sleep with the pains in my legs. I have to try and warm my legs up by wrapping them up with a blanket and using hot water bottles. Sometimes my legs are sweating but still aching! Does anyone else get something like this? Is it part of the Reynauld's?

    Sure sounds like your having an allergic reaction from a medication. I have rashes and symptoms like u at times and benedryl helps. I know its because of the infusions I get. Benedryl helps with allergic reactions. I'd ask your doc to try a different drug and see if that helps.

    I have suffered for a number of years. Only yesterday a new doctor told me to keep my legs warm, as warm socks are just not enough.As your legs have a much bigger surface area you need to keep the blood warm and flowing to keep the circulation going in your feet.I will get some thermals and try ;).

    your own urine rubbed in will take away itch cover with vaseline area as well to keep it moist and white cotton socks before bed

    Warm baths or showers, and pull skin back slowly until just when it feels uncomfortable. Then keep it pulled like that in the warm water for five minutes. (with tension) I realize it may not pull back at all, but if you do this every day, little by little it will start retract. Don't worry, 13 is still within the norm to not be able to retract it all the way yet. It will take time.

    I fully understand how you are feeling. I have vitiligo where there is no pigmentation. It's what's on our insides that matters rather than what's on our outside. Im sure you are a very kind, obviously sensitive and loving person. Concentrate on developing a beautiful personality, this will shine through your pigmentation areas... other people warm to warm personalities. Don't worry about how you look, no one is perfect.Try to develop your giftings instead, and lm sure you will soon start to concentrate on these rather than your skin pigmentation.All the best...

    I wear gloves etc and tend to keep warm as much as possible, however i lost just over 6 stones around 3 years ago, prior to this there were never any issues, i always had warm hands and feet. I also never done exercise. I am now fitter and healthier and do exercise on a regular basis, the down side being my hand sand feet are cold most of the year, only occasionally do they warm up, and i don't even realize it

    it is from shaving, you have very sensitive skin. i would quite for awhile and trying getting it professionally wax, the European style. from pretty kitty or a well known high review place. if you do decide to keep shaving, make sure you warm up your skin and get the razor hot with hot water (be careful) shave with the grain of skin, then use a nice moisturizer to smooth the skin. also helps to use cold water after done shaving so to close the pores of the skin. also wear loose close or something that wont rub up against the skin for at-least a day right after shaving.

    When you say excema? Is that medically proven or are you just talking about dry skin? If its the case of dry flaky skin, It may be that you penis is growing and building new skin which is not uncommon at 14. I recall being 14 myself and having very dry cracked skin on my penis while it was growing. My suggestion is if it is getting uncomfortable, go to the doctor. Also, many soaps are too harsh. the penis doesn't need soap, just warm water. I hope it helps.

    Have you tried soaking your feet in a bowl of warm salted water? Once the skin is soaked it'll become soft. Then you can use a pumice stone, or something similar, to rub on the problem areas to remove dead skin.

    that is natural it is from the heat warm you may see it so small at times that is it is all nice and cool but when it gets warm it gets big like you just said no need to worry about that but as for the other bit you may need to see a doctor i am not to sure on that one

    Hi I had sex with a casual encounter at the week end Unprotected now the for skin is tight and it is sore Iv been washing in warm water but there is a white Dry film under the forskin and it hurts when I try to peel The skin back the glans is swollen pls what's going on I'm 40 and have never had this before

    Is it a white lump? If so, it may be a blocked milk duct like mine. Using a warm flannel or soaking in a warm bath helps to draw it out

    warm bath n clean ur foreskin with warm water ever day

    You probably have Raynauds syndrome. Your arteries that supply blood to your skin narrow, which limits blood circulation. It is usually not serious. My fingers used to be like that. Now that I turned 54, it's become severe. One finger turns completely white on one hand, the next day a finger on the other hand will. Yours may always be mild. . Make sure you where gloves on cold days. You can help the circulation go back to normal by soaking your fingers in luke warm water, never hot! I hope I gave you enough info...keep warm!

    There are basically two ways to get your foreskin back, one slow and natural, the other quick and unnatural. 1) Natural methods involve stretching the skin. Some guys do this by pulling on the skin while bathing in warm water twice a day. This will obviously take a few months. 2) Surgical alteration. With this approach, the skin at the base of the penis is cut (in the hair line so that the scar won't show), then all the skin of the penis is slid down towards the head to form a new foreskin. Skin from other parts of the body is harvested to repair the incision made at the base of the penis.
