In addition, I would suggest to check with your dermatologist whether it would be useful to do allergy testing (patch testing) to make sure you have not developed skin allergy (allergic contact dermatitis) to exogenous chemicals you may come in contact with in household products or at ...

Re: Darkened Skin on Face

Good evening! I would prefer if you would use a milder steroid for example eumovate or betnovate 1:4 dilution or synalar 1:4 - 1:10 dilution. But if you must to use Elocon , I would recomend to use it sparingly on face and no more that 3-4 times a week. If it does not help, please consult your derma...

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.

You need to see your GP or a skin specialist to establish what it is.

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...
