What’s the difference between the way normal moles and growths feel, and the way precancerous or even cancerous ones feel Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV. Recently, a viewer wrote in, I have a mole that’s uniform in color and shape but it itches. Can a non cancerous mole itch Or does that mean it’s surely cancerous Well. What do you think Does the way a mole or growth feels really help you determine if it’s normal or abnormal The answer is usually not. The way your moles or growths feel offers very little reliable info.
About whether it’s normal or not because both normal moles and growths and precancerous and cancerous ones usually don’t have any symptoms you can feel. They don’t itch, burn, hurt or bother you. They don’t feel like anything! But occasionally, regardless of whether they’re normal or abnormal, if they become injured or inflamed, then they can itch, hurt or burn. Actually, the symptoms of itching, hurting or burning are usually typical of inflammation in general. That can occur if it gets scratched, rubbed, hit or just bumped into. When that happens, it may temporarily, rapidly swell,.
Get red or even become warm, somewhat like a twisted ankle, but again, has nothing to do with normalcy. Because your body repairs the inflammation or injury that causes these symptoms, they are usually temporary, lasting only a few days or weeks. If they persist longer, then it’s time to get it checked out, just to be sure. These harmless temporary symptoms of inflammation should never be confused with the actual dangerous warning signs of abnormal growths. Those include bleeding, crusting, gradual increase in size, change in shape or changes in nonred colors like brown or black.
Effectively Treat Psoriasis Eczema with Naturopathic Medicine Dr. Shannon Sinsheimer, ND
Psoriasis and eczema are both skin conditions. They present very similarly on the body. Psoriasis presents as large, scaly, white patches of skin that itches, and when you scratch it, will produce pinpoint bleed marks. Eczema will start out as smaller bumps that are vesicles that when you scratch, they ooze and, over time, will create larger white plaques on the skin. Conventional medicine treatments for eczema and psoriasis are most often topical creams, such as hydrocortisone creams. When these creams are applied to the skin, the plaque diminishes in size over time. However, when you stop using the cream, the plaque.
Can return. When a patient comes into my office for eczema or psoriasis, I first begin with a medical intake to find out how long they’ve had their symptoms and how severe they’ve been. I take a look at their skin, and then I order a blood test to find out about any food sensitivities, their liver function, and total cholesterol levels. Diet plays a significant role in the development of psoriasis or eczema, therefore, based on lab results. My first step is to eliminate foods the person is sensitive to, and instead, I recommend.
Whole, organic foods that are nutrientdense and are less likely to aggravate the skin. Stress or high stress levels are known to increase inflammation in the body. Psoriasis and eczema are both inflammatory conditions of the skin, therefore, unmanaged or highstress levels will increase the problem of psoriasis or eczema. Stress management is necessary to help deal with psoriasis and eczema, therefore I prescribe stress management techniques, such as exercise, yoga, meditation, and deep breathing. I’ll also prescribe a number of supplements. They include fish oil for its antiinflammatory properties and ability.
To support the skin vitamin A for its skinhealing properties milk thistle for its ability to detoxify and support the liver and vitamin D to support the immune system. Depending upon the symptoms, I may also prescribe a topical ointment, such as a homeopathic cream to decrease inflammation and increase healing time, or a vitamin and mineral infused cream with vitamin A and zinc to support the skin’s healing process, or a calendula ointment, which can decrease the appearance of plaques and decrease the itchiness. Naturopathic medicine is about treating the root cause of disease, so when I treat the root cause of eczema or.
Psoriasis, I see significant to complete reduction in my patient’s symptoms. For example, I had a patient come in who had psoriatic plaques covering nearly his entire back, the backs of his legs, and almost all of the backs of his arms. After three months, we saw a significant reduction in the size of the plaques, and after six months, the only symptoms present were some light pink discoloration on the upper part of his back. Another example is a young child I saw who had such bad eczema on his feet and inbetween his toes, he was.

Radiation Therapy for Skin Cancer at Waters Edge Dermatology
Skin cancers are extremely common. Some need something as simple as a little scraping or treatment with liquid nitrogen. Some need surgery and some benefit from radiation. Radiation therapy offers patients a very unique, nonsurgical management option. People confuse radiation therapy with chemotherapy, and they’re completely different. Radiation therapy is Xray treatment, or, what we use, electron beam treatment. It is not internal. It’s not absorbed. It’s a very thin, superficial treatment for skin cancer. Chemotherapy is often either a pill or an intravenous drug used for the management of cancers that are internal,so they’re completely different.
Water’s Edge offers all options and management, ranging from local treatment to surgery to Mohs map surgery to radiation. I think this needs to be discussed as one option that people may not know about. It’s a reasonable choice in many circumstances where surgery could leave less than a desirable cosmetic outcome. Often they treat cancers on the tip of the nose or the ears or the eyelids. Our cure rates are anywhere from ninety to almost ninetyeight percent, depending on the cancer location. And many, many patients are pleased with the cosmetic outcomes and clinical outcomes.
There are a lot of different technologies in the application of radiation. I selected electron beam treatment because of its safety and its efficacy It involves several painless sessions. Radiation is delivered through a machine called a linear accelerator and it’s delivered on a daily basis. Patients can have anywhere from two weeks to up to six weeks of treatment, depending on size the cancer and their desired outcome. The treatment itself takes less than two minutes, it’s painless. It doesn’t interfere with any activities. The type of radiation we use at Water’s Edge is a nonpenetrating, thin beam it can be stopped by a quarter.
DermTV Very Itchy Fingers, a.k.a. Dishydrosis DermTV Epi ‘6
Hello, I’m Dr. Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV. This may be the season for itchy skin, but chances are if it’s your fingers that are itching, it’s not because they’re dry. Most of the time, itchy fingers are caused by a condition called Dishydrosis and the itch it causes can really drive you crazy. And it’s not just itching that Dishydrosis causes You actually get little bumps on the bottom and sides of your fingers. And the bumps are actually tiny blisters. Dishydrosis literally means, bad sweating, and it used to be thought that these crazily itchy bumps.
Were filled with sweat. That’s why it was named Dishydrosis. But the fluid isn’t sweat it’s actually serum, which is the clear fluid in your blood. The most common cause of Dishydrosis is extreme stress, although not every outbreak can be linked directly to a stressful situation. On a personal note, I can tell you that I’ve only experienced Dishydrosis once in my life. It was early in my medical training after a very stressful night of being up all night taking care of a lot of very sick patients. The next morning the hospital dermatologist was making rounds.
And I showed him my hands, and he said, Boy you must have had a really rough night. So. The itching and bumps both finally go away after a few days. As it gets better, there are these really interesting telltale little collars of dead flaky skin that peel off. Those tiny matchhead size collars of dead skin get larger. and then smaller. over a few days and are caused by the bubble of serum as it rises through the higher levels of the epidermis. It’s like taking horizontal slices through a sphere.
Starting tiny at the bottom, then getting larger, and finally smaller again. To treat the itching and bumps, topical cortisone creams and antiitch lotions with menthol are best. If that doesn’t stop the itch, cold water can usually give temporary relief, but never try to stop the itching with hot water. Even though hot water feels good and stops the itch, it also causes the itch to come back worse a few minutes later. After the itch and bumps are gone, the flaking skin can continue for a week. It can be camouflaged with a moisturizer,.
