Skin Problems - Is Dandruff the Cause?

Skin Problems - Is Dandruff the Cause?

Dandruff or seborrhea refers to the flaky condition of your skin or scalp caused primarily due to fungus. It is a very common problem for young adults and middle aged people but can happen to any person regardless of age. Dandruff itself being an embarrassing problem, can also sometimes lead to other skin problems.

The following are a few skin problems that can crop up due to dandruff-

  1. Can cause pimples: If dandruff or the white flakes fall on your T-zone region very often, then it may lead to the break out of pimples on your skin.
  2. May result in pigmentation: The pimples which can happen due to dandruff can further lead to the problem of pigmentation. This condition leads to the appearance of unwanted black spots all over your face.
  3. Trigger eczema: Dandruff makes skin problems like eczema and psoriasis even worse. Eczema and psoriasis which causes itching of the skin can get severe due to dandruff.
  4. Rashes are also a possibility: Facial rashes can also develop due to dandruff. Often areas around the eyebrows, nose and ears get affected. Sometimes, in case of men, beard rashes also pop up.
  5. Chest rashes: Dandruff often falls all over your body.This can lead to the problem of chest rashes. This condition results in the appearance of red spots all around your chest region.

Dandruff can be a very distressing problem. If your skin type is oily, dandruff can make conditions far worse. Dandruff is such a problem that cannot be completely cured but can only be controlled. So, it is highly advisable to take preventive measures as soon as it is detected to avoid further problems.

Male or Female Pattern Baldness - Know Everything About It!

Male or Female Pattern Baldness - Know Everything About It!

One of the major problems with hair, especially as you age is the thinning of hair, which exposes the scalp, although it is regularly seen in younger people as well. The surprising thing is that baldness, which is primarily associated with men, can affect women as well.

Male pattern baldness
Male pattern baldness tends to occur in the form of receding hairline that can be accompanied by loss of hair on the top of the head as well as the back. Some of the reasons for male patterns baldness are:

  • Genetic factors such as baldness among the male members within the family
  • Androgen hormonal issues
  • Surgery or major illness which may trigger hormonal changes

Male pattern baldness doesn't only affect men and is known to affect women as well. It is just a type of pattern, which is prevalent more among men although women with high levels of androgen are also known to suffer from it.

Female pattern baldness
The female pattern of baldness is quite different from male pattern baldness. Female pattern baldness primarily spreads from the parting of the hair and then follows a widening pattern. It is not as severe as male pattern baldness where patches may start growing or bald spots may develop. However, the area around the crown may start showing the scalp due to severe thinning. Some of the causes for this could be age, especially in women after 40, hormonal imbalances within the body and some of the similar issues with male pattern baldness as mentioned above.

Treatment
The treatment for male and female pattern baldness tends to be similar in many cases, although certain specific treatments may be administered in other cases. Some of the common treatments include:

1. Minoxidil solution of varying strengths
2. Hair replacement or transplant in certain cases
3. Spray or inked Cosmetics to cover up hair loss
4. Oral medications to kick start hair growth
5. Hair pieces and other appendages to hide bald spots etc.

With female pattern baldness, depending on the underlying factor, hormonal treatments may be required to resolve the problems. Once the underlying problem is resolved, topical and oral medicines can then help in hair re-growth. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

U have to understand one thing that vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder means your own body cells are reacting against your pigment producing cells which produce melanin ,due to destruction of these cells you get vitiligo that is white patches .Vitiligo sometimes can be associated with thyroid disorders and many times its genetic .Treatment depends on whether its stable or unstable ,stable vitiligo means there are no new patches from last 1 year .Treatment is in the form of creams and tablets and later stage surgery if it doesn't respond to creams and ointment.

I have stretch marks on my body (arms ,back ,legs) and used bio oil ,olive oil recently I am using aloevera .haven't seen any improvement yet.

MBBS, DVD

Stretch marks occurs due to lack of collagen so whatever you r using won't boost up collagen synthesis. Anti stretch marks creams ate given along with treatment like fractional laser and microneedling .Microneedling procedure involves penetration of microneedles into dermis, this offers collagen remodelling and France reduce the stretch marks.

Retino a can cause irritation on face ,so best way to use it start initially with lesser time of application, later you can increase the timings n if no redness or irritation you can keep it overnight. But use retino a only in night and use sunscreen on full face in mornin and afternoon to prevent irritation.
