  • red, itchy rash, what is it?

    I've had this red itchy rash on my neck for a little over a month, it feels more velvety than dry. I'm a 22 year old female, and I have been putting Vasoline on it for about two weeks (I try to do it as many times a day as I can, but some days I forget so it might only be once before bed). Vasoline...

Whenever I have a sore, I avoid picking it and use treatment for it, but sometimes no matter what I do it still scars and I don’t understand. I will rarely have a sore that actually heals and...

  • Have Been Using Eumovate Ointment For 4 Years

    I've been using the Eumovate Ointment every day for 4 years until the doctor told me the revelation that I wasn't suppose to use it like that. Because I've been using the ointment every day for 4 years, does this mean I've permanently damaged the health of my skin, like long lasting...

  • Port whine stain

    I've had mine since I was born and yes I grew up being teased that I had a disease but when I am cold is only wen it's noticeable. Why? But I'm 46 now and I couldn't care less what people think so don't do surgery. It's a part of who you are and makes you unique!
