1 ) Dx :- Tinea incognito. 2 ) D / D :- Tinea corporis 3 ) Precautions on the part of the mother :- For the best prenatal care, assemble a team that includes the following: 1 ) A doctor, trained to care for people with diabetes, who has cared for pregnant women with diabetes 2 ) An obstetrician who handles high-risk pregnancies and has cared for other pregnant women with diabetes 3 ) A pediatrician (children's doctor) or neonatologist (doctor for newborn babies) who knows and can treat special problems that can happen in babies of women with diabetes 4 ) A registered dietitian who can change your meal plan as your needs change during and after pregnancy. 5 ) A diabetes educator who can help you manage your diabetes during pregnancy. Its important to remember that YOU are the leader of your health care team. Keep track of any questions you have and make sure to ask your health care team. 6 ) During pregnancy, your diabetes control will require more work. The blood glucose checks you do at home are a key part of taking good care of yourself and your baby before, during and after pregnancy. Blood glucose targets are designed to help you minimize the risk of birth defects, miscarriage and help prevent your baby from getting too large. If you have trouble staying in your target range or have frequent low blood glucose levels, talk to your health care team about revising your treatment plan. Target blood glucose values may differ slightly in different care systems and with different diabetic teams. Work with your health care team on determining your specific goals before and during pregnancy. The American Diabetes Association suggests the following targets for women with preexisting diabetes who become pregnant. More or less stringent glycemic goals may be appropriate for each individual. Before a meal (preprandial) and Bedtime/Overnight: 60-99 mg/dl After a meal (postprandial): 100-129 mg/dl A1C: less than 6% Pregnancy causes a number of changes in the body, so she may need to change how she manage her diabetes. As she is having diabetes before conception, she may need to change her meal plan, physical activity routine, and medicines. As she will get closer to your delivery date, her needs might change again. i) Rest as advised. ... ii) Strictly follow the advice of Dermatologist, Physician/Diabetologist/Endocrinologist and Gynaecologist. iii ) Good glycemic control as per diet advised by Physician/Diabetologist/Endocrinologist and or Gynaecologist / Help of Registered Diatecian advised by Physician and or Gynaecologist. iii ) To consult ophthalmologists and optometrists for vision problems, nephrologists for kidney disease, and cardiologists for heart disease. If she already experiencing problems from diabetes, she will need those conditions monitored throughout her pregnancy. Precautions on the part of treating doctors and how to manage this patient :- 1 ) Formation of a team as mentioned above and one Dermatologist also to take care of skin lesions. Routine tests of pregnancy, TORCH, Quad screen tests to screens for are Down syndrome and trisomy 18, which are chromosomal abnormalities, as well as neural tube defects, such as spina bifida. The quad screen is done in the second trimester, usually between 15 and 20 weeks of pregnancy. Inj. TT1 and TT2 should be taken. Advice : - For dermatological point of view - Skin scrap for KOH Preparation and fungal culture may be useful. Insulin is the traditional first-choice drug for blood glucose control during pregnancy, because it is the most effective for fine-tuning blood glucose and it doesnt cross the placenta. Therefore, it is safe for the baby. Insulin can be injected with a syringe, an insulin pen, or through an insulin pump. All three methods are safe for pregnant women. If she has type 1 diabetes, pregnancy will affect your insulin treatment plan. During the months of pregnancy, her body's need for insulin will go up. This is especially true during the last three months of pregnancy. The need for more insulin is caused by hormones the placenta makes. The placenta makes hormones that help the baby grow. At the same time, these hormones block the action of the mother's insulin. As a result, her insulin needs will increase. If she has type 2 diabetes, she too need to plan ahead. If she is taking OHA to control her blood glucose, she may not be able to take them when she is pregnant. Because the safety of using diabetes pills during pregnancy has not been established, and her doctors will probably switch her to insulin right away. Also, the insulin resistance that occurs during pregnancy often decreases the effectiveness of OHA at keeping her blood glucose levels in their target range. Only a small number of studies have been published analyzing the safety and effectiveness of oral medications during pregnancy. Unlike insulin, oral medications cross the placenta to the unborn baby in varying degrees. For these reasons, the American Diabetes Association does not recommend their use in pregnancy. However, oral medications are now used more frequently than in the past by some health care providers to manage blood glucose levels that are not controlled by diet and exercise alone during pregnancy. Rx for Tinea incognito : - 1 ) ** NO SYSTEMIC ANTIFUNGALS. 2 ) Good Glycemic control by teamwork. 3 ) Topical Clotrimazole / Ketokonazole / Luliconazole. 4 ) Ketokonazole soap - To use during bath. 5 ) Improvementof personal hygiene.
Well doctors, good answers. 1) diagnosis: TINEA COGNITO. 2) DD: Annular PSORIASIS Erythema multiforme Granuloma annulare Bubonic IMPETIGO NUMMULAR dermatitis Erythema Anuulare Centrifugum. 3) Precautions: Fungal infections and pregnancy is not dangerous It has no detrimental effect on unborn child. Fungi only live on dead tissue on the top layers of the skin. 4) MANAGEMENT: Topical applications of azoles are safe in pregnancy. Among topical azoles, safest is Nystatin (A cartegory) Next Terbinafine, Amorolfine, Ciclopiroxolamine.(B category) Among Oral antifungal ... Amphoreticin B is safest.(A category) Next Fluconazole in low doses( C category ) is indicated after first trimester of pregnancy. Among antihistamines Safest is pheneramine maleate and Hydroxyzine. But cetrizine, fexofenadine and Loratidine may be use with caution only after first trimester.

ABC OF : NAIL DISORDERS. ( I ). MAY BE USEFUL. *** ANONYCHIA is the absence of nails, an anomaly, which may be the result of a congenital ectodermal defect, ichthyosis, severe infection, severe allergic contact dermatitis, self-inflicted trauma, Raynaud phenomenon, lichen planus, epidermolysis bullosa, or severe exfoliative diseases....... *** PSORIASIS can also affect the fingernails and toenails, leading to thick fingernails with pitting, ridges in the nails, nail lifting away from the nail bed, and irregular contour of the nail....... *** LICHEN PLANUS of the nails can cause brittle or split nails, and the affected nails may have ridges running lengthwise....... *** FUNGAL nail infections are common infections of the fingernails or toenails that can cause the nail to become discolored, thick, and more likely to crack and break. Infections are more common in toenails than fingernails.....by some dermatophytes, Candida (Monilia) species, etc....... The technical name for a fungal nail infection is “ONYCHOMYCOSIS.”....... *** SPOON-SHAPED or spooning fingernails refers to a concavity in the fingernail itself, resulting in a depression in the nail that gives an appearance of a spoon shape to the entire nail. This growth disturbance in the nail is known as KOILONYCHIA....... In particular, koilonychias is associated with IRON DEFICIENCY. *** Fingernails are made by living skin cells....... So a skin condition such as eczema may lead to fingernail ridges. Skin dryness can also cause these ridges. If the body is low in protein, calcium, zinc.......or vitamin A, a deficiency can sometimes be revealed by ridges in the fingernails. ** HORIZONTAL RIDGES run from side to side on nails and are often referred to as BEAU'S LINES may be a sign of previous injury, underlying health conditions, or in rare cases, arsenic poisoning....... Horizontal ridges can be caused by trauma to the nail and may be deep or discolored. The can also indicate malnutrition, psoriasis or a thyroid problem....... ** VERTICAL RIDGES are usually harmless and a consequence of ageing.......nail injury, or trauma, or underlying medical conditions....... *** The ECTODERMAL DYSPLASIAS (EDs) are genetic disorders affecting the development or function of the teeth, hair, nails and sweat glands....... ** ED is not a single disorder, but a group of closely related conditions of which more than 150 different syndromes have been identified....... *** Nail CLUBBING, also known as digital clubbing, is a deformity of the finger or toe nails associated with a number of diseases, mostly of the heart and lungs. ... Hippocrates was probably the first to document clubbing as a sign of disease, and the phenomenon is therefore occasionally called "Hippocratic fingers"..... ** Lung cancer is the most common cause of clubbing. Clubbing often occurs in heart and lung diseases that reduce the amount of oxygen in the blood. ... Heart defects that are present at birth (congenital) Chronic lung infections that occur in people with bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, or lung abscess....... *** While the NAIL BITING and picking seems to be such a common problem, the psychological and medical research does not agree on the exact motivation for the action. However, it suggests that nail biting can be the result of STRESS, VARIOUS MEDICAL DISORDERS, LEARNED BEHAVIORS, OR JUST PLAIN HABIT....... *** SPLINTER HEMORRHAGES : They run in the direction of nail growth. They are named splinter hemorrhages because they look like a splinter under the fingernail. The hemorrhages may be caused by tiny clots that damage the small capillaries under the nails. Splinter hemorrhages can occur with infection of the heart valves (endocarditis)....... *** YELLOW TOENAILS in an infection by a fungus that attacks the nails..... or, in some cases, they may be a sign of skin cancer. The fungal infection is caused most often by dermatophytes, which eat keratin to grow....... One of the MOST COMMON CAUSES of YELLOW NAILS is a FUNGAL INFECTION. As the infection worsens, the nail bed may retract, and nails may thicken and crumble. In rare cases, yellow nails can indicate a more serious condition such as SEVERE THYROID DISEASE, LUNG DISEASE, DIABETES or PSORIASIS....... *** WHILE NAILS ( LEUKONYCHIA ) : CAUSES : Iron deficiency anemia. Cirrhosis of liver. Kidney disease. Heart failure. Diabetes. Problems with the digestion of proteins. An excessive loss of proteins in the intestines. zinc deficiency........etc....... *** RED NAILS :- CAUSES : LUPUS patients get quirky, angular blood vessels in their nail folds. PSORIASIS starts in the nails up to 10 percent of the time and CAUSES SPLITTING and PITTING of the nail bed. HEART DISEASE can turn the nail beds red....... ** If the NAIL BED is RED, it could be caused by a high content of fatty acids and cholesterol, due to an excess of dairy products, sugar and salt in the diet. This can lead to an underactive liver and blocked arteries....... To keep the system healthy by replacing refined foods with wholegrain rice and bread, and flush out the system with plenty of fresh vegetables and at least five glasses of water a day....... *** HALF PINK and HALF WHITE nails can be a sign of kidney disease....... *** BRITTLE NAILS :- CAUSES : AGING. CHEMICAL/TOXIN EXPOSURE. LONG-TERM USE OF NAIL POLISH AND POLISH REMOVE. LOW HUMIDITY ENVIRONMENT. MALNUTRITION. NAIL-PATELLA SYNDROME. PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO WATER. TRAUMA. ** B complex vitamins (especially biotin), calcium, and zinc have all been implicated. There are other medical conditions which can cause brittle nails such as ANEMIA (low blood count), THYROID DISORDERS, and skin disorders such as LICHEN PLANUS and PSORIASIS. ** ONYCHOSCHIZIA includes splitting, brittle, soft or thin nails. Onychoschizia is MORE COMMON IN WOMEN. Only VERY RARELY are INTERNAL DISEASE or VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES the reason (IRON DEFICIENCY is the MOST COMMON).......Dr. Puranjoy Saha39 Likes37 Answers
