DermTV How to Treat Under Breast Rashes Infections DermTV Epi 190
Hello, I'm Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Rashes under the breast tend to occur if theskin of the lower part of the breast lies flat against the skin below thebreast. That tends to happen at a certain time in life whether it's fromage, gravity, from having had children or just from the way that you'rebuilt. Whether you know it or not, your skin perspires all the time butwhen skin lies flat against
another layer of skin that perspiration orsweat can't evaporate and moisture accumulates. When moisture accumulatesin closed areas, like skin against skin, it promotes the growth of bacteriaand other germs and that creates odors and that can lead to infections.The most common infections that occur in this context, on the under partof the breast, are yeast infections and bacterial infections. To helpprevent this, very simply, after you shower treat this area with thesame antiperspirant that you use under your arms. If that's not effectiveat sufficiently decreasing the
sweating, then take a thin piece of cottonmaterial and place that thin piece of material under and in the fold belowthe breast on both sides to help absorb moisture. If you actually do developa rash below your breast usually it manifests as itchy little red bumpswith some oozing. Usually this is very uncomfortable. It's probablya yeast infection and the best way to treat it is with milk and water compressesand the instructions, for those is discussed in DermTV Episode 15.In addition, over the counter Mikonazol lotion applied very lightly twoor three times a day, will often
help cure a yeast infection. And by the way,this may seem counter intuitive, but soap in these circumstancesis bad it's not good and soap will actually make the infection worse. Ifthese simple measures don't help improve your rash then see your dermatologistfor further treatment.
HOW TO GET RID OF TINY FOREHEAD BUMPS
Hi guys, welcome back to my channel. I wantedto talk about these tiny, annoying, pesky little bumps on your forehead. You have triedsalicylic acid. You have benzoyl peroxide. You have tried almost every single acne producton the market and they do not seem to work. What is going on?Pityrosporum Folliculitis or Malassezia folliculitis is caused by proliferation of a yeast withinthe hair follicles. What? So, basically it is a yeast. On the surface of the skin, itlooks like it is acne except it isn't. One distinguishable difference between acne andthis yeast is the itchiness it causes. If the bumps you're experiencing are accompaniedby an occasional itch, chances are you may
have this yeast present. However, ironically,acne may be present, too; due to the fact that skin oiliness is one of the factors thatcan lead to this condition, and also, as you know, acne. More on that later.Surprisingly, malassezia or pityrosporum can actually be found on the skin of most adults;the thing is an overproliferation of this yeast is usually what causes this acnelikebreakout to occur, and like any yeast or fungus an overproliferation occurs only when theconditions are ripe. Then things go crazy! One more important point to make. While thetitle of this tutorial is How To Get Rid of Forehead Bumps, this condition can actually be present onthe upper back, the chest, the shoulders,
and the neck. It can really be found in quitea few different places. But I have found when we are talking about acne and when we aretalking about skin care, a lot of people have mentioned this tiny bumplike eruption onthe forehead. How did you get Pityrosporum Folliculitis?Or how did you get Malassezia Folliculitis? Going back to what I said earlier, it canoccur from oily skin. Other factors include obesity, stress, fatigue, or pregnancy. Evena systemic illness that can cause a weakening in your immune system or taking certain broadspectrum antibiotics and medications can also be factors.How can you tell if you have Pityrosporum
Folliculitis? A al diagnosis can bedetermined by either visually observing the area or microscopically having a skin biopsydone. Sounds intense, I know. The good news is treatment is entirely waymore straightforward. If you don't have the time or, let's face it, the money togo see a , determining whether or not you have acne or a yeast present can be assimple as applying a topical treatment to treat yeast, and seeing if it works. NizoralAD Shampoo is a commonly used product used to treat this type of yeast. Its active ingredientis Ketoconazole. Ketoconazole is an antidandruff, antifungal agent. Basically, it treats dandruff,it kills yeast and kills fungus. Apply a thin
layer of this product over the affected areastwice a day â€“ morning and night â€“ for ten days. It is recommended that you leaveit on the skin for ten to fifteen minutes before washing off. If you notice a significantimprovement after the ten day application, more than likely an overgrowth of this yeastwas present and the cause of the bumps you saw on your forehead. If you notice mild improvement,both acne and an overgrowth of this yeast may have been present and may still be present.After a ten day treatment of this product, try treating the remainder of the bumps youhave with acne remedies and acne solutions to see if you notice a difference. Lastly,if you did not notice any improvement at all, more
than likely an overgrowth of this yeast isnot present. It could simply be acne that is causing the bumps on your forehead.
