Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My skin changed from thick to velvet in two weeks. There are lesions on the cheeks, neck, lumps under the skin on the jawline, and two lumps in the throat. Skull appears smaller and is now covered with large indentations. A computed tomography scan was taken three months before that showed a nasal mucous cyst. Hard lumps dug out from cheeks. There are white spots on the gums in the front and difficulty swallowing, severe fatigue, nausea, and bone pain. My weight reduced from 394.62 Ibs to 224.87 Ibs in five months. Skin unravels or melts when pulled, and low-grade fever intermittently. Blood tests showed calcium and protein in blood with low creatinine and anemia. Immunoglobulins G and A (IgG and IgA) were found at normal levels. There is random bruising and dizziness that makes me fall. Circulation is partial in the arm. Light sensitivity burns the eyes badly. All freckles and moles have raised bubbles now; some are very dark. Kindly help.

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. It is seborrheic dermatitis, according to your symptoms and reports.

My advice:

Consult your specialist doctor, talk to them, and take medications with their consent.

  1. Apply cream Miconazole (Miconazole Nitrate) twice daily in the morning and evening on red lesions for two weeks.
  2. Wash the scalp with a Ketoconazole shampoo twice weekly for six weeks.
  3. Apply ointment T-Bact (Mupirocin) at night for ten days on the red lesions.
  4. Bath with Cetrimide soap for one month.
  5. Gargle with Povidone Iodine solution diluted in lukewarm water twice daily for ten days.
  6. Take a Vitamin-C tablet once daily after breakfast for 30 days.
  7. Apply Benzocaine gel on the erosions in the mouth before eating for ten days.
  8. Use Photostable (Octyl-methoxycinnamate) sunscreen 20 minutes before going outdoors and avoid direct sunlight.

Increase intake of Vitamin A and C-rich foods in the diet and consult a dentist for the lesions on the mouth.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.
