Hello, r n My father has a white skin disease on the skin of the face, neck, armpits. After 18 years suffering from this disease. In 2010, he had been treated by a skin specialist who was given a liquid delsoralent drug and was cured … now it has grown again in 6 years. medication given daivobet prescription medication and there is no change. because now liquid delsoralent is no longer available. the question is whether daivobet and liquid delsoralent are drugs for the same type of skin disease? thank you doctor.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are various types of diseases that can make the skin color of the face, neck and armpits become vaginal discharge, including:
Vitiligo (damage to melanocytes, which are skin pigment-producing cells)
Post-inflammation hypopigmentation (skin color that fades after inflammation)
Nevus anemicus (paler colored moles)
Tinea versicolor (tinea versicolor), or other fungal infections
Syphilis (king of lions)
Leprosy (leprosy, Morbus hansen)
Psoriasis, and so on
Each of the above conditions can be clinically very similar to each other. Therefore, knowing what diseases cause your father's complaints needs to be done with a direct physical examination by an expert, namely a doctor or specialist skin and genitals.
Need to be clarified beforehand, after checking your father to the doctor, according to the doctor, what disease causes your father's complaint? After giving the medicine, did the doctor recommend that your father undergo re-control in relation to his illness?
The two types of drugs that you use are clearly different. Liquid Delsoralen contains the active ingredient methoxsalen which functions to overcome the problem of hypopigmentation on the skin (including due to vitiligo or proriasis), relieve itching, and overcome allergic symptoms. Meanwhile, Daivobet has active ingredients of calcipotriol and betamethasone dipropionate which are more commonly intended to relieve inflammation and irritation of the skin, as they appear in the form of itching or peeling skin found in sufferers of atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, and various other diseases. Without checking your father directly, we are not authorized to judge whether the treatment that the doctor gave your father is appropriate, or not.
If you find that your father's condition does not improve after undergoing treatment from a doctor, we recommend that you check him back to the doctor or dermatologist nearby .. Some examination procedures, such as allergy tests, skin biopsies, laboratory tests, etc. may be a doctor do in an effort to establish the right diagnosis. Meanwhile, in order to minimize complaints, your father can do the following tips first:
Take regular baths in the morning and evening with mild soap that suits your skin type
Do not over-rub the body, especially those with leucorrhoea rashes on it
Do not exchange towels, clothing, or other personal items with others
Do not provide careless handling of skin rashes that appear
Protect your skin from being exposed to direct sunlight, for example by using sunscreen, wide hats, umbrellas, or brightly colored clothing
Hope this helps ...
