How does nummular dermatitis affect the body?
People with nummular dermatitis usually have extremely dry skin. Oval- or coin-shaped patches of red, itchy and/or burning blisters then develop on the skin. The legs are the most common locations for these rashes, but they can also form on the arms and torso.
How is plaque psoriasis diagnosed?
Plaque psoriasis is diagnosed by taking a medical history and doing a physical exam. A doctor will discuss your symptoms with you and look at your skin. A skin biopsy is sometimes performed simply to rule out other disorders. A healthcare professional may request x-rays if you have joint pain as a symptom.
Are there alternative treatments for phimosis?
In children with phimosis, the primary alternative treatment is simply to do nothing. The foreskin naturally loosens as boys age, and it might take some time for it to become fully retractable. In fact, some boys might not have full movement of their foreskin until their teens. Otherwise, treatment alternatives to medication or surgery are limited to careful stretching of the foreskin. Regular stretching (usually in combination with a steroid cream) with your fingers might help loosen the foreskin, allowing it to eventually retract.
