Dermadoc :

hello

Dermadoc :

thanks for using just answer.

Dermadoc :

i will be glad to be of assistance.

Dermadoc :

in order to let me help you better , it will be very helpful if you could answer a few questions regarding your condition.

Dermadoc :

i would like to know:-

Customer:

thank you Dermadoc,

Dermadoc :

1. since how long do you have these blisters?

Customer:

approx. 4-5 weeks

Dermadoc :

2. do they contain clear fluid? or is the fluid blood tinged?

Customer:

clear fluid, i have rubbed serveral of them and they broke

Dermadoc :

3. are they present anywhere else other than the areas you mentioned? like on your upper thighs, neck?

Customer:

no

Dermadoc :

will it be possible for you to post a photo here at your convenience?

Dermadoc :

that will aid me in better diagnosis of your condition.

Dermadoc :

also a few more questions:-

Dermadoc :

1. what is the size of these blisters? and any blisters in the mouth?

Customer:

I really do not have the capability to do so...I did not tellyou that the area is red...I have stopped wearing a bra but the breasts still sag over the rash, the one on the scar is covered by my abdominal hanging skin,

Customer:

no mouth blisters, the blisters are very small

Dermadoc :

thanks for this valuable information.

Dermadoc :

are these blisters only on one side or on both sides?

Customer:

both sides

Dermadoc :

thanks again, you have been extremely patient. i value your inputs.

Customer:

I do have a history of herpes simlex , mouth area

Dermadoc :

i had a few possibilities in mind regarding your condition based on your description:- 1. herpes simplex 2. candidial skin infection. 3. a vesiculobullous disease. 4. contact eczema or allergy

Dermadoc :

i ruled out herpes simplex based on the duration of 4- 5 weeks.

Dermadoc :

herpes simplex episode would last for a week at the most.

Customer:

another bit of confusing information, around the same time the first rash appeared I was put on a Humalog insulin pen, insulin lispro protamine, could this be a reation??

Dermadoc :

this doesnt seem to be a reaction, if it were a reaction it wouldnt be limited to just the areas which are occluded by opposing skin folds.

Dermadoc :

the reaction would be more widespread.

Dermadoc :

in my opinion, this seems to be a candidial i.e a yeast infection, with associated hypersensitivity to the candida , its called an id reaction.

Dermadoc :

i will like to offer a few recommendations to treat the condition:-

Dermadoc :

1. lotrimin cream mixed with cortisone cream to be applied twice daily over the affected areas for 5 days.

Dermadoc :

2. after 5 days, the cortisone cream can be discontinued and the lotrimin to be continued for a week more.

Dermadoc :

3. also it will be important to keep the affected areas dry after bathing as moisture may lead to further growth of candida.

Dermadoc :

4. after the treatment , that i recommended for 12 days is over, you can use an antifungal dusting powder after bathing.

Customer:

thank you so much, I will take your advice and hopefully this will clear up.

Dermadoc :

5. also for the itching, an antihistaminic tablet will be useful if taken at night.

Dermadoc :

6. all the medications i mentioned are available without a prescription over the counter.

Dermadoc :

you are welcome, i hope my recommendations will be helpful to you. it was a very pleasant experience interacting with you.

Dermadoc :

please let me know if you have any queries.

Customer:

Now I will put all this into use tomorrow.

Dermadoc :

if you are completely satisfied with my answer, please click on the green accept button. thank you.

Dermadoc :

ya sure.

Dermadoc :

take care.

Dermadoc :

regards.
