How can I help my doctor assess my eczema?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredYou can help your dermatologist assess your eczema by providing him or her with your medical history. Accurately describe the circumstances under which you first noticed you had a rash and when it started. This can help your dermatologist determine the cause. Keeping a journal logging your eczema flare-ups and any factors that seem to trigger them can also help.

How do I manage my phimosis on a daily basis?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Phimosis generally isn't a painful condition, so many people choose to live with it. Just make sure to keep the area under the foreskin as clean as possible to avoid infection. However, odds are that the condition will cause difficulty with urination and sexual activities and may trigger urinary tract infections. If you are trying to cure your phimosis, you can apply a steroid ointment to the foreskin several times a day to help loosen the skin. In addition, careful stretching of the foreskin can help ease the tightness. Avoid activities that could irritate the foreskin, and never force it to retract, as this could cause scarring.
