Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for using just answer
what question do you want to ask?
can you send a pic of this, thanks
ok, I'll take a look
ok, the first pic called Hand_pic is really severe dermatitis, not pompholyx
The second pic called healing hands has a more pompholyx appearance
You can try betnovate cream for that
pompholyx is a form of eczema
eczema is a type of dermatitis
So pompholyx can come under dermatitis
Dermatitis is just an umbrella term that covers for lots of skin conditions
But you have contact dermatitis and irritant dermatitis
you have two different presentations here - conact dermatitis and pompholyx
The treatment for both is the same
The betnovate cream should help
Hi, I'm currently at work and had to attend to a patient
Use betnovate twice daily for a week and then stop
If no better, then you'll need a face to face appointment
No worries, I'm free now. any other questions?
You know your body better than me. You should be telling me if this is a flare up. have you not had this before?
I couldnt tell you based on a pic. You just have to see how it develops.
You only use weaning regimen if you have history of frequent flare ups
However, if you think the symptoms have not yet subsided after a week, you can then do once a day the following week, then every other day the week after, then twice a day the last week
Thats a weaning regimen
