Colour is determined by genes. Some fair children become dark after exposure to sunlight. Practice applying sunscreen abundantly before exposing to sunlight.

Since April, I was under ayurvedic treatment for fissures but had to discontinue due to acidity. I was under impression that ayurveda is safe. Acidity stopped within a week after discontinuing ayurveda. I have relaxed sphincter tone, anal swelling on one side, it shrinks after taking Chirulvilvadi kashaya but acidity stopped from continuing. Mild occasionally rectal pain is there.

lybrate-user, for anal fissures and fistula the most important thing more than a medicine is the food. You should completely avoid spicy, hot and sour food. Ad curry leaves, fibre food to your diet. 1 glass of water + half glass of milk + 3 small onions - boil it and and then grind it in mixi and have it on empty stomach. Elephant yam is good for fissures. You can do sitz bath. Sit in luke warm water mixed with little salt for half hour take more fruits and fruit juices. Chiruvilwadi kashayam is very good for fissures. Check your diet and take kashayam regularly.

Melasma - What Causes It?

MBBS
Dermatologist, Pune
Melasma - What Causes It?

A common skin condition which causes the discoloration of your skin in patches across the face, melasma is more of a social embarrassment and cause for distress rather than being a serious condition. Although it affects men as well, studies have shown that over 90 percent of patients are women. It is also known as the mask of pregnancy as many pregnant women develop this skin condition.

Causes of Melasma
Primary causes of melasma have been attributed to various hormonal changes within the body. Let's look at some of the factors that may cause this disorder:

  1. Pregnancy - This is often attributed as the leading cause of melasma, the primary cause has often been attributed to hormonal changes that a woman may experience due to pregnancy.
  2. Treatments that may change hormonal balance - Women on contraceptive pills or who have implants such as intrauterine devices may also develop this disorder. This is due to the balance of estrogen and progesterone being changed within the body.
  3. Sun exposure - Continued sun exposure may also lead to melasma. This is due to the activation of melanocytes within the body which start producing more melanin.
  4. Stress - Long periods of stress on the body can also trigger hormonal changes and cause melasma.
  5. Thyroid problems - If someone suffers from Hypothyroidism or low levels of the thyroid hormone, it can trigger other hormonal changes and also cause this skin disorder. 

It has also been noticed that people with generally a darker skin tone tend to get melasma and it is less common in people with fairer skin.

Certain Characteristics of Melasma
Melasma develops in certain patterns which can be easily diagnosed either as spots on the skin similar to freckles or brown patches of skin that grow bigger. Some of these patterns are:

  1. Malar pattern - This grows on the nose and cheeks
  2. Mandibular pattern - Starts growing around the jaw line
  3. Brachial melasma - This grows on the upper arms and shoulders
  4. Lateral cheek pattern - Grows on the cheek on both sides of the face
  5. Centrofacial pattern - Nose, upper lips, forehead and cheeks

Treatment of Melasma
Most women who develop melasma during pregnancy report that it goes away after childbirth. However certain forms of melasma may appear in non-pregnant women due to hormonal changes. Treating the underlying hormonal changes usually resolves the problem. However certain other methods may be required to resolve the issues such as skin creams, chemical peels, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Take the finely ripped papaya and peel its skin. Make the papaya into slices. Now mesh the papaya into a creamy paste. Apply this paste on the face. Leave it for 10-15 minutes, then wash with the water. Papaya contains the enzyme named papain, which exfoliates the skin and easily removes the dark spots on the face.

In order to solve your problem , you need to make healthy lifestyle choices, and a great place to start is with the foods you eat such as including nuts, berries, tender coconut, cheese, avocado,oats, green vegetables,papayas, mangoes, peaches, pineapple, strawberries, squash; yellow, green and red peppers; tomatoes (raw green tomatoes are poison), cantaloupe, apricots, carrots, sweet potatoes, beets, dark green leafy veggies, seaweed (including brown seaweed called ecklonia cava).Drink plenty of water. Since you have already tried the skin treatments form various doctors ,I would like to suggest you to go by home remedies now.

You can use moisturizers for dry skin. Avoid use of soap on face as it causes dryness. You can use mild face wash. Application of coconut oil before bath also helps in preventing dry skin.
