You have Phimosis, which in your age, the foreskin should still be forming so may be easy to treat. Stretching exercises, when erect just pull it back as far as it will go and hold for 5 mins. Do this a few times daily.. in the shower helps, and you should see results within days/weeks. Could also try, if its possible to pull back a bit, pull it back, grab the glans( top cap of penis) with two fingers and roll the foreskin up over the two fingers as far as it will go (when the ring of skin turns white). hold it there for 5 mins. Lubricant helps with this!. . It's fairly common, and this should help. Also try rubbing vitamin E( Add few drops of olive oil )around the top and inside the foreskin, which may help elasticate it.

Dark circles are because of lack of nutrients. Sleep and weakness. So take proper nutrients and drink plenty of juices and sleep for atleast 7 hours a day. Drink 7-8 glasses of water every day.

If you suffer from acne, pimples, blackheads & dark spots it means that the pitta dosha (heat in body) is increased. For that you need proper ayurvedic medicine along with following diet & lifestyle changes. 1) avoid eating salty, spicy & sour foods 2) have milk & ghee twice daily 3) green tea has antimicrobial and antioxidant compounds that can help fight acne. To get its effects, use a cooled cup of green tea as a face wash or lay the bag over the affected area. 4) apply a teaspoon of honey to affected areas, or make a mask by mixing 1/2 cup of honey with 1 cup of plain oatmeal and leaving it on for 30 minutes.

A Breath of Fresh Skin

MD, ExSR Dermatologist AIIMS New Delhi
Dermatologist, Delhi
A Breath of Fresh Skin

Oxygen provides a host of benefits to the skin; it brightens, speeds up healing, boosts circulation, reduces stress, and helps eliminate toxins. The treatment is designed for all skin types so everyone can reap the benefits, even pregnant ladies like me. The O2Lift also infuses peptides and high concentrations of enzymatic botanicals into the skin. It leaves you with luminous, refreshed and rejuvenated skin.

The facial itself takes 45 minutes:

Step 1: A Gel to Milk Cleanser is massaged into my skin. It gently cleans the skin, no stinging or drying sensation, it is milky soft. The therapist takes her time working the product in and then removed the cleanser using a warm cloth/sponge

Step 2: An Enzymatic FacialPeel is applied. The gel smell is lovely and is also well massaged into the skin for a few minutes before it liquefied.

Step 3: An Oxygenation Masque is then applied. This is where the magic happens. The product goes on like a gel and then starts to foam. It is the weirdest feeling - like fizz, actually effervescent might be a more appropriate word. This is how it delivers the oxygen into the skin.

Step 4: A StemCell Enhancer is then massaged onto the face and neck. This is a serum loaded with high doses of stem cells, vitamin C and botanicals which penetrate deep into the skin.

Step 5: Prevention+Tinted moisturizer is then applied to the skin.

I have black spots and pimples are heavy in my face I feel pain full and irritating.

MBBS, DNB (Dermatology)
Dermatologist, Mumbai
I have black spots and pimples are heavy in my face I feel pain full and irritating.
Pimples occur mainly due to hormonal imbalances which causes an overproduction of oil and cells inside a skin follicle. They block the opening of the skin pore and cause the follicle under the skin to swell and become red. It usually starts in teenage, but most of the time lasts into adulthood.  1. Avoid breaking the boils  2. Use a good sunscreen properly  You can start with the following  1. Erytop gel apply twice a day on entire face

What is the cost of glutathione injections treatment and is it helpful for permanent skin lightening.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S

What is the cost of glutathione injections treatment and is it helpful for permanent skin lightening.
The amount of IV sessions of glutathione depends on how many shades lighter you want your skin tone to be. One round of treatment is 5 IV’s that will be performed once a week for 5 weeks. Typically one round of treatment (05 IV’s) can lighten the skin from 1 to 3 shades lighter. Depending on how light you would like your skin, you would need to commit to more rounds of treatment.

Tomato juice for skin has a lot of benefits. It helps in getting rid of tanning, counters discoloration of skin, helps in treating and preventing acne, shrinks open pores and regulates secretion of sebum in oily skin. Apply tomato juice for 20 min daily. And see the result. Avoid using skin light cream. Hydroquinone has many side effects.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. In diabetes particularly if not we'll controlled, fungal infections are very common. Hence, it most important to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% < 6.8%. Then one has to use antifungal medication both local & systemic. Since the information given is very general, it difficult to give any suggestions. Plus in this communication no prescriptions can be given, so please come back in a private conversation with all necessary details. Thanks.
