    I have a a really red rash for over 2 months now. My doctor first thought it was fungus but it did not respond to any of usual fungus remedies. I went to dermatologist and she took biopsy. Biopsy showed that is proabably a medication that I am taking. Triameterene HCTZ for blood pressure. Stopped this med over 3 weeks ago and started using a steroid cream. I am experiencing improvement on the spots where I apply the cream, but I continue to have new areas that are involved. Would it take this long for the effects of the drug to get out of my system?

    I have very irritating skin itch. No Dr has yet diagnosed my condition. I’ve seen dermatologists, allergists, etc and no relief (except prednisone which I’m afraid of any long term use. I’m age 86 and in reasonably good health otherwise. I can get relief for usually about 24 hours taking one dose of 400mg of ibuprofen and 25 mg of benedryl. Is it Ok to continue this regimen?

    Moisturizing has been the basis of my cure for eczema. Lots of creams, daily, or twice daily has made such a difference. I’ve become a moisturizing queen!
