DermTV Syringomas White Hard Bumps Under Your Eyes DermTV Epi 224
Hello, I'm Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. Today's topic comes from one of Siobhan'sviewers from the YouTube LetzMakeUp channel, that's LETZ MAKEUP. And the question is what are those white hard bumps around the eyeéThey don't act like pimples and they don't respond to treatment like pimples.There's a very good reason they're not pimples. They look like whiteheadsbut they're not. First of
all, they're usually below the eyes, notnext to the eyes or above it, it's usually on the lower lid and they can be whiteor yellow, they can be round or oval and they can be flat topped or sortof dome shaped. They have a special name; they have nothing to do withacne, they're called syringomas and syringomas are really enlargements ofsweat ducts, having nothing to do with oil glands. Let me show you. This isour favorite diagram of the skin and this sweat gland is down here in the middleof the dermis, the middle layer of the skin and when it makes the sweatit has to get the sweat up to
the surface of the skin. So it sends it upthrough this tube which is called a sweat duct and as it comes out ofthe dermis, the middle layer of the skin, it enters the epidermis, the upperlayer of the skin. And when that duct, that tube, going through the epidermisbecomes enlarged, it forms a syringoma. The enlargement of thispart of the duct forms that white, hard, round bump. If you squeeze them,nothing comes out, if you put a pin in them, nothing comes out because they'resolid, they're just enlargements of those tissues and cells thatmake the channel. How do you
treat theseé No creams or skincare productsmake any difference. If you come to a dermatologist's office, each oneindividually has to be operated on, either electrically cauterized or cutout but there's no cream that's going to make a difference. So, if you havethese little, white, round bumps of the lower lid and they bother you,see a dermatologist and he or she can help remove them but no cream is goingto help take care of this one.
I Have Little White Bumps On My Penis Could This Be A Yeast Infection
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher with another question. I have little painless white bumps on my penis.Could this be a yeast infectioné It most probably is. A good thing to do ifyou're uncircumcised is to roll the foreskin back and have a look. If it's intensely itchyin particular, and small white bumps, it could well be a yeast infection. If in doubt, getchecked out. That's my saying. So go and see your and get a swab and get the areachecked and to see if the can culture any yeast. If Candida albicans can be culturedfrom this swab, then it most certainly is a yeast infection. But you could be dealingwith any one of different types of conditions.
But itchiness, irritability to that area,small white bumps, generally will signify a yeast infection. A good home treatment would be to give ita good wash with tea tree oil soap and to keep it dry and clean. And to take precautionswith sexual relations, use condoms of course, until you really know what you're dealingwith. So to answer that question, would these littlewhite bumps on the penis be a yeast infectioné They probably are, but get checked out justto be sure. And if you're told they are yeast infection, always consider internal treatmentas well as external treatment.
You can read a lot more in the fourth chapterin my book, Candida Crusher, if you're a male particularly with what to do with these typesof infections. They'll give you lots of different solutions and ideas, so do read that chapterin my book. So I hope that answers your question. Thankyou.
