Re: Firm white bump on nose

HI

without examining it, it is impossible to say what it is, and whether it is a skin cancer or not.
Non melanoma skin cancers are rare in 30s but not unheard of.
You need to see your GP or a skin specialist to establish what it is.

Re: Jewellery & rashes

Hello, although skin reaction to platinum (allergic contact dermatitis) is rare, it is still possible. Alternatively you may react to nickel contained in the ring.

Re: Psoriasis scarring

Hello when psoriasis resolves it often leaves discoloration which usually fades away with time.

Hi sounds like discoid eczema. You will need a very greasy moisturizer (for example epaderm ointment or hydromol ointment or emulsifying ointment) to apply frequently and to wash with it instead of soap. You will probably also need moderately potent steroid ointment, you may need to try to find a do...

Re: Medical name for bacterial psoriasis infection in buttoc

Hello there is no special name for a bacterial psoriasis infection because psoriasis is not triggered by infection.

HI, it sounds as if you may now have a form of dermatitis. Is it itchy? It's a good idea to continue to use E45 as emollient and a soap substitute but you may need something stronger. It may also be a good idea to ask for referral to a skin specialist, because dermatitis may require a different trea...

Re: Rosacea - treatment

Hello MorrisH, rosacea can last long time but is ultimately self limiting. antibiotics (with or without rozex) need to be taken for long time - months at a time, they help with spots.
