Needing to see a doctor

Hello - I have 3 children of various ages all of which have eczema. Having lived through numerous flares, (and long nights and no sleep), I am beginning to feel a lot more confident in managing especially when it flares. During lockdown I have not seen our doctor as frequently as I would do as I fee...

Allergy Tests

My daughter seems to get infrequent but unexplained rashes - the doctor each time suggests we treat as eczema but I am not convinced on this as the time in which it comes under control seems to change. Would you suggest some type of allergy testing and if so is there any specific one? I have tried t...

It started on his cheeks, but now has spread to the back of his neck and in his hair. It’s been apparent for 2 weeks now. It flares up when he is warm/distressed and then ...

Moles - should they get checked?

Spent a number of years as a child in East Africa, where the family were careful about protection from the sun. Nevertheless, I have some moles (which are not troubling me) and have never had them checked. Is it a good idea to have a mole check, and if so where in London would be a good place to go ...

The treatment with antibiotics w...

Since double vaccinated I've had a rash from hands, arms, shoulders, legs, outer thighs, sides. The topical steroid my GP usually prescribes for my occasional very dry patches doesn't work and the rash isn't going away although some days better than others depending if I am hot or not. I've had it t...

I saw a private Dermatologist who put me on 4 different steriod creams and told me to stay on them for between 6-12 weeks. Having read all the awful feedback on long...
