Hey. I have problem of blue patches on my skin. Specially on thighs. Please suggest me something.
Dear, blue patches on thigh occurs due to venous flow obstruction meaning lack of proper circulation. To get rid from these blue patches: * make your weight in control specially your belly fat. Make your belly area fat free. * do regular walk for 10 to 15 minutes daily and avoid long hours of sitting. * do pavanmuktasan daily for 5 minutes under guidance of yoga expert. * do massage with mustard oil on your thigh region slowly in upward motion for 5 minutes.

Atopic Dermatitis - How it Can be Treated?

Atopic Dermatitis -  How it Can be Treated?

Out of many different type of skin infections people suffer from, atopic dermatitis is one that is fairly common. This condition often affects infants and young children, but may also persist into adulthood or affect adults as well. Patients suffering from this disease often see it alternate between flares and periods of remission where it may seem like the condition has cleared up completely. In many cases, children who have experienced a permanent remission from it are left with dry skin that is easily irritated.

The exact cause of this skin condition is not clear, but it is understood to be triggered by a combination of hereditary and environmental factors.

  • People with highly sensitive skin have the highest risk of suffering from this condition.
  • It has also been associated with a number of other atopic disorders such as asthma and seasonal allergies along with allergies to certain types of food.

Dry skin, redness and excessive itchiness are common symptoms of this condition. Other symptoms vary from person to person and their reaction to the itching. Ideally, you should not scratch your skin, if you suffer from atopic dermatitis. Scratching and rubbing the skin can worsen the condition. In some cases, this can lead to the development of thick, leathery skin while in other cases it could lead to the development of papules or raised bumps on the skin. Further scratching of these papules can make them infected and crusty.

The treatment for this skin condition depends on the patient’s age, overall health and symptoms presented. There are three main goals of treatment for atopic dermatitis; healing the skin, preventing flares and treating symptoms as they appear. Much of caring for the skin involves developing skin-care routines, identifying exacerbating factors, and avoiding circumstances that stimulate the skin's immune system and the itch-scratch cycle.

  1. Skin care is the first aspect of treating this condition. It is essential to keep the skin clean and follow a simple regimen.
  2. Avoid using multiple soaps, lotions, fragrances etc and have a lukewarm bath with a mild chlorine solution.
  3. Moisturize your skin immediately after your bath before drying your skin.
  4. Pick creams instead of serums and try to pick one that is as free of fragrances and chemicals as much as possible.
  5. Medication for this condition usually involves corticosteroid creams and ointments.
  6. Immune moderators may also be prescribed to suppress the immune system and speed up the healing process.
  7. Antibiotics to treat this condition may also be prescribed in pill or cream form, though the former is often found to be more effective.
  8. In rare cases, the patient may also need to be hospitalized for a few days. This restricts the patient’s exposure to allergens and irritants. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

Some face packs can give a burning sensation. If it is bearable and not causing rashes after rinsing, it is all good. If it causes rashes, apply hh fudic cream to clear the rashes. It will be better to not use it if it causes even temporary rashes.

I am 24 yrs old. Since past few years dark patches have developed on my face over my cheek . As my job is an outdoor one, so due to constant exposure to sunlight they are getting darker. Please do suggest some permanent solution to this problem ?

Dear Scar are the fibrous tissue form on the skin in order to repair broken tissue. When there is an injury the skin produces more cells in order to grow the punctured skin that is known as scar. Scars always occur when the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis is cut and the injury extends to the dermis. The resulting scar does not have good blood circulation, is sometimes uneven and is less elastic. In addition, major variations in color are possible. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com

See there r no 100% effective cream to clear your face but I have developed a cream which will vanish your scars 100% in 3-12 months. U can see the results in 15 days. For a quicker action we give the same medicines used in cream orally also. So I advise u to try both internal and external medicine for scar removal. U will not be disappointed

Acne Vulgaris In Adults

MBBS, Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL)
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
Acne Vulgaris In Adults

Acne vulgaris is a skin disease that causes pimples. It begins in the skin’s oil glands.

Oil travels onto the surface of the skin via a canal called the hair follicle. Pimples pop up when the hair, oil and cells in the follicle form a plug, which clogs the pore. This allows for the bacteria that normally live on the skin to grow and multiply in the clogged pore and when your body’s defense system attacks these bacteria, the area gets inflamed resulting in an unsightly pimple.

Most pimples are found on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders and just about anyone can get these zits. No one knows exactly what causes acne in adults. Contrary to what you may have heard, pimples are not caused by dirty skin, but dirt may aggravate acne and so does stress.

Types of acne

Acne can be two types:

  1. White heads - If the clogged follicle stays beneath the skin and you get a whitish zit, it’s called a white head.
  2. Black heads - If the plugged follicle reaches the skin surface, you get a blackish bump called a black head. The blackness is because the sebum or oil darkens on the skin’s surface due to exposure to air.

Who is susceptible?

  1. Anyone can get pimples, but people who are undergoing hormonal changes like adolescents and pregnant women are more susceptible. An increase in levels of certain hormones during puberty can cause the skin oil cells to enlarge and make more oil.
  2. Adult women become predisposed when they stop taking the contraceptive pill or begin taking it, as this causes a hormonal see-saw too.
  3. Studies suggest that you can also inherit a tendency to have acne. So genes play a role.
  4. Certain drugs can cause acne.
  5. Oily cosmetics can clog pores, leading to acne.

Prevention of Acne
There is no sure way to prevent acne, but try these measures to prevent severe breakouts –

  1. Wash your face often if you have oily skin.
  2. Try oil-free cosmetics. Choose products labeled ‘noncomedogenic’, which do not promote the formation of closed pores.
  3. Always wash after exercising because sweat can clog your skin pores and make your existing acne worse.
  4. Remember to wash your face and other areas prone to acne as soon as possible, especially after cooking hot, greasy food.
  5. If you use stuff like hair sprays or styling gels, make sure that you keep them away from your face as much as possible as these products contain oils that can make acne worse. Always try to use water-based products if you are prone to acne.
  6. If you get acne on your chest or back, avoid wearing tight clothes as these can rub against the acne and cause irritation.
  7. Never try to pop or squeeze a zit as this can push infected skin and pus deeper into your skin, which can lead to more swelling and redness.
  8. Wash hair often if you have an oily or dandruff-prone scalp.

Treatment of acne

  1. It usually takes time to find a product that works for your skin. Over-the-counter (OTC) products come in different strengths. The ingredient that works for most people is benzoyl peroxide. Another ingredient, salicylic acid, is also very effective as it helps to dry up pimples.
  2. It's best to seek a dermatologist's advice if you find OTC products aren't working for you. He or she will prescribe special gels, creams or pills to fight stubborn acne.

Sir, as you have been suffering from major complaint's moreover underwent surgery also, better you should be under that related doctors supervision. But apart of that I suggest you to go for any alternative medicine t/t for other complaints you're suffering from. But mention all other complaints you r having. You have to wait some time to get relief from that eczema.
