Symptoms And Treatment Of Keratosis Pilaris!

MD - Dermatology, MBBS, DNB
Dermatologist, Navi Mumbai
Symptoms And Treatment Of Keratosis Pilaris!

The skin has a protein called keratin that protects it from infections and other harmful toxins.  For various reasons, mostly unknown but likely genetic, there could be a buildup of this keratin leading to small, light-colored, hard bumps under the skin that can feel like sandpaper. This condition is medically known as keratosis pilaris.  These pillars of keratin block the hair follicles that open onto the surface of the skin, and when a number of follicles are blocked, it leads to dry, bumpy feeling. In common words, it is also referred to as chicken skin, chicken bumps, or goose bumps.

Occurrence:  The onset is usually in the first decade of life, continues to grow in number in teenagers (80%), and slowly subsides as they grow older (40% of adults).  People with dry skin are more likely to have these bumps than people with oily skin.  The most commonly affected areas include upper arms, thighs, buttocks and very rarely on the face.

Cause: This is a genetic disorder, and the bumps are due to excessive formation and buildup of keratin due to faulty genes.  There could be surplus skin formation under these follicles or hair follicles trapped under these bumps.  There could be a small area of inflammation and redness around the bumps.
Weather Correlation:  Keratotis pilaris is more common and evident during the winter months when the skin is normally drier than in summer months.  Some people could have this condition lifelong, with only manifestation seen in winters and complete absence of bumps in the summer months. 

Symptoms: The condition is usually asymptomatic, except for the dryness, and does not cause itching or medical harm. The esthetic concern, especially if in upper arms, is the only concern.  Some people could be affected by the hard, bumpy feeling of the skin.  There are no long-term medical symptoms or harmful effects of this condition though.

Treatment:  No treatment is required; however, moisturizers may be required to prevent the bumps from drying up. In very severe cases, creams may be used to remove dead skin cells and to prevent plugged follicles.  Alpha hydroxy acid, salicylic acid, or lactic acid containing creams can be used to remove the dead skin cells. These also help moisturize the skin and reduce dryness.  Vitamin A containing creams can be used to unplug the hair follicles.

A word of caution though - these creams can cause itching and redness.  Since this condition is prevalent in children, these creams need to be used only if absolutely essential and with medical prescriptions. The condition is harmless and self-limiting, so no treatment is mandatory.  Patient education is of utmost importance in these cases

Whiteheads - How To Get Rid Of Them?

Whiteheads - How To Get Rid Of Them?

Similar to blackheads are whiteheads, which develop on our skin. Both blackheads and whiteheads are caused due to clogged pores. However, as opposed to blackheads, whiteheads cannot be extracted. Whiteheads are a form of acne that is referred to as closed comedones. They appear on the skin as small round white-coloured bumps. When excess oil is secreted in the skin, oil along with dead skin cells clog the pore area and block the pore opening resulting in whitehead formation. Unlike blackheads that keep the pore open, whiteheads, on the other hand, keep the pores closed.

However, they may evolve into a pustule or other acne lesion when bacteria gets involved.

Causes of whiteheads
Clogged pores are the prime reason that causes whiteheads, and they can occur due to any of the following reasons:

  • Excessive oil secretion or sebum
  • Hormonal changes occurring due to puberty, pregnancy, and menstruation
  • Birth control pills
  • Sweating and humidity
  • Use of certain cosmetics or products that are harmful
  • Eating excessive oily or greasy foods
  • Genetic predisposition

Treatment of whiteheads

With extreme conditions, oral medications like isotretinoin may be prescribed, but these come with potential side effects. Here are some remedies you can try to get rid of whiteheads: Tea tree oil: Dab a cotton swab with tea tree oil and apply it on the whiteheads to prevent bacterial infection.



Self-care tips 
Practising some of the following preventive self-care measures will prevent the formation of whiteheads:

  • Wash your skin twice daily with lukewarm water and mild soap.
  • Don’t squeeze pimples.
  • Practice caution while shaving.
  • Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight.
  • Use oil-free skin products.
  • Remove makeup before going to bed.
  • Opt for non-comedogenic or non-pore-clogging products.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing made of non-synthetic fabrics to let your skin breathe.
  • Wash your hair regularly.
  • Change of pillow covers periodically is essential as oil and dirt may accumulate in the covers.

Here are some remedies you can try to get rid of whiteheads:

The above are just some measures to avoid whiteheads. If the problem persists, then it's time to seek medical assistance and schedule an appointment with a dermatologist to eradicate these pesky whiteheads.

Achalasia - What Causes It?

Gastroenterologist, Hyderabad
Achalasia - What Causes It?

Achalasia is a very rare disease. Normally, your esophagus squeezes food down by making the muscular valve in between the stomach and esophagus relax. Achalasia occurs when this muscular valve is unable to relax and thus the esophagus is unable to squeeze the food down. The most common reason why this happens is because the nerves in your esophagus are damaged. The nerves most commonly get damaged because of abnormalities in the way your immune system responds. Till now, there is no cure to achalasia; however surgery or minimally invasive therapy can make the symptoms of achalasia more manageable.

Here are all the causes and symptoms of achalasia:

Symptoms

1.  Difficulty swallowing
The difficulty you face when swallowing food is the most common symptom of achalasia. Both liquid as well as solid food will be hard to swallow.

2.  Regurgitation
If the food is regurgitating in the night, then the lungs may have been inhaling some food. This is very serious and you should see the doctor immediately if this occurs.

3.  Chest pain
You may suddenly experience chest pain from a completely unknown cause. 

4.  Weight loss
You may also suffer from sudden weight loss if you have achalasia. This is due to the reduced amount of food you will be consuming.

5.  Heartburn
Heartburn is when you have a very intense burning pain in your chest just behind your breastbone which is most commonly caused by regurgitation in your esophagus. 

Causes

The exact cause of achalasia is not yet known. However, there are some theories on what causes achalasia. Here they are.

1.  Genes
The most common cause of achalasia is genes. 

2.  Autoimmune disease
An autoimmune disease is when your immune system attacks your body's own cells. Achalasia is a type of autoimmune disease.

3.  Infection
There have also been a lot of claims that infections are the cause of achalasia.

The Different Methods Of Surgical Facelifting!

The Different Methods Of Surgical Facelifting!

Facelift surgery is a procedure that allows you to knock years off your face with the help of an incision and refashioning your face. The effects stay for 10 years, and in most cases surgery causes minimal pain and discomfort, and a very short downtime ranging anywhere from a day to a week before resuming normal daily activities.

However, like any good medicinal procedure, you have to customize the procedure to your exact personal needs to obtain the best results possible. Here are the choices you can flip through and make a decision:

  1. The deep plane lift: This has been considered the most reliable sort of face-lift surgery by popular opinion, as it keeps the face in the post-surgery state and appearance till the longest time among all the methods. It works by penetrating the skin through a cut or ‘incision’ until it reaches the ‘deep’ level. There, it works to remove excess fat tissue and wrinkles to give a naturally youthful look.
  2. Short scar lifts: These are done in case it is imperative for you to have only a short scar as remnant of your surgery, and not a longer one. It also is usually the best for you if you are in your 40’s or 50’s. In most cases, the scar left behind is ‘S’-shaped.
  3. Endoscopic facelift: The specialty of this method is that 2-3 tiny tubes with cameras are inserted into your face carrying cameras (the endoscopes) and your face is pictured onto a screen to operate on the areas most requiring improvement. This treatment only helps cheeks look younger, though.

Facelifts are common and risk free surgeries, but there exist different varieties to give results or either the whole face (say the deep plane lift) or specific parts only (the endoscopic lifts only the cheeks). Choose one judiciously, as they are permanent and therefore should give only the desired results. Wishing you a safe surgery!
 

Glycolic Peels - The Many Advantages You Should Know!

Glycolic Peels - The Many Advantages You Should Know!

There is no denying the fact that everyone wants to enjoy a healthy and younger looking skin sans the wrinkles and blemishes. Unfortunately, skin aging is a natural process that will catch up sooner or later. But that does not mean you should not take care of the skin. In fact, a proper skin care can go a long way to slow down the skin aging. In this context, it is important to mention about the chemical peels. Packed with chemicals, the chemical peels when applied will exfoliate the skin, leaving it fresh, rejuvenated and younger looking.



A chemical peel often used as part of a skin care routine is the Glycolic Acid Peel. As the name indicates, the main chemical used in the peel is glycolic acid. Derived from sugar beets, sugar cane, or pineapple and a part of the Alpha Hydroxy family, glycolic acid are known to be extremely beneficial for the skin. Glycolic acid leaves your skin deeply exfoliated. The signs of skin aging, as well as skin pigmentation, can be taken care of by the glycolic acid. In fact, dermatological conditions such as freckles, melasma, Peri oral pigmentation and facial rejuvenation, to name a few, can also be successfully treated using glycolic acid.

Steps to apply the glycolic peel?

  1. Before the application of the glycolic peel, it is important that a person cleanses his/her face thoroughly.
  2. Apply a thin layer of the peel evenly all over the face and the neck (avoid the area under the eyes). The glycolic peel comes with a neutralizer (used to neutralize or terminate the action of the acid).
  3. After the stipulated time (as mentioned in the guidelines), apply the neutralizer solution using a cotton ball at the areas where the peel was applied.
  4. Wash your face thoroughly with water to get rid of any traces of the acid and the neutralizer.
  5. Pat dry the face with a soft towel followed by the use of a good moisturizer.

Advantages of the Glycolic peel

  1. The glycolic peel enhances the production of collagen, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles to a great extent.
  2. As stated earlier, the glycolic peels act as a great exfoliator getting rid of the dead skin. As a result, the skin appears smooth and radiant.
  3. The glycolic peels can be a great relief for people with acne problems (provided your doctor recommends the same).

Precautions
The glycolic peel may come with many advantages. However, one should be careful before using the peel.

  1. Read the instructions thoroughly before you use the glycolic peel.
  2. The peel may cause skin irritation, flaking or even redness. It is best to go for a patch test before applying the glycolic peel.
  3. The glycolic peel can make your skin sensitive to sunlight. Thus, always use a sunscreen after using the glycolic peel.
