When the skin is subjected to stretching beyond its elasticity it results in stretch marks. It is a common problem seen in pregnant women. In the last stage of pregnancy when their skin is stretched to its greatest force, it leaves several marks on the stomach and lower abdomen.
The Other Major Factors Are:
- Sudden weight gain
- Muscle Building
Previously there were no proper treatments for getting rid of stretch marks completely, but with the advancement in technology now there are various laser treatments being done to treat the same. Depending on the scar depth the treatment is suggested by the dermatologist. As these treatments are are too expensive most of the dermatologists suggest ways by which the marks can be lightened, these include:
- Using creams or products that has Vitamin E content
- Keeping your skin moisturized
- Having a control over your body weight
- Massaging the affected area with aloe vera gel can also help treat stretch marks
To avoid any kind of skin infections/disorders it is advised that you take proper care of our skin and keep it clean and moisturized always. Whenever you come come across any symptoms visit the doctor and get it treated immediately.
Razor bumps are a common skin condition that occurs as a result of shaving. The condition is more common in men and usually occurs on the face. Razor bumps are more than just an annoyance; in some cases, they can cause permanent damage if they’re not treated.
Razor bumps can occur anywhere that’s been shaved. Waxing, plucking, and removal by chemical depilatory may cause the condition in some cases, too.
They’re most likely to occur in the following areas:
- face (particularly the chin, neck, and lower cheeks)
Causes and risk factors
The bumps occur when curly hairs get stuck inside the hair follicles. Instead of growing straight out of the follicle, hairs meet resistance from dead skin at more steeply angled pore openings and the hair curls back around inside the pore.
Razor bumps are fairly common and can usually be diagnosed with a physical examination.
Irritated red bumps can be treated with a combination of:
- prescription antibacterial lotions
- warm compresses with green tea bags
- spot treatment with over-the-counter steroid creams
- Sterile incision and extraction of the hair are sometimes necessary.
- Laser hair removal or electrolysis is also an effective option in some cases. Find out which option is best for you.
If treated early, most serious complications from razor bumps can be avoided. In some cases, however, if the bumps aren’t treated, there’s a risk of scarring. This can include keloid scarring, which consists of hard, raised bumps. In rare cases, abscesses may form, and you may need surgical intervention.
Photo and natural aging occur through many mechanisms. Skin tone, color and texture are compromised by exposure to sun and tanning beds. Time induced volume and bone loss occurs, resulting in sunken in cheeks, eyes, mouth corners, etc with sagging skin and deep wrinkles as a result. Overactive muscle activity leads to upper face wrinkles.
Natural Aging Changes
- Loss of Elasticity
- Loss of Muscle Tone
Photo Aging Changes
- Pigment changes
- Keratoses (rough growths)
- Loss of elastic fibers and collagen
- Accentuation of natural aging
- Fine wrinkles
- Skin texture change (roughness)
- Thinning skin
- Visible vessels
Consider non-invasive treatments to slow down the aging process.
You will look and feel great!

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a futuristic, natural and non – surgical concept of regenerative medicine. It adopts a modern approach of revitalizing the skin. PRP therapy helps to reduce the signs of aging, lessen acne and decrease fine lines & wrinkles without any surgery, Botox or fillers.
Here are the five benefits of a PRP therapy for Anti-Aging
- Absolutely Natural Procedure
Because the plasma used in this procedure is derived from your own body, it is a completely natural procedure. No artificial chemicals or substances are used to process.
- No Surgery
No invasion is involved in this procedure. The doctor would only give you a topical or local anaesthetic to numb the area. Then your own processed blood, which is now platelet rich plasma, is injected into your affected areas of your face using an insulin syringe.
- Completely Safe
Since the plasma that is injected in skin is taken from your body only; therefore there are no risks or side effects of this procedure. Nor there are any non-compatibility allergies. Some patients have mild swelling, bruises or redness that goes away within 24 hours. So this is a completely safe procedure.
- No Recovery Time
PRP therapy for anti-aging is a simple and non complicated procedure. The treatment takes around 30 minutes. After the treatment, you can leave the clinic & continue with your daily routine for the rest of the day.
- Long Lasting Results
The results of PRP are long lasting. A patient needs to undergo 3 to 4 PRP sessions. After you undergo one session, the other session is scheduled after 3 to 4 weeks although some patient might need a maintenance session once a year. But the results are visible and last for years.
So if you are suffering from wrinkles, fine lines, acne or signs of aging, PRP is the perfect solution for you.
Herpes is an infection caused by HSV (herpes simplex virus). This virus affects the external genitalia, anal region, mucosal surfaces, and skin in other parts of the body.
In this article, we discuss the symptoms of herpes, how to treat it, and how to avoid it.
Primary infection symptoms
Primary infection is a term used for an outbreak of genital herpes that occurs when a person is first infected. The symptoms can be quite severe and may include:
- blisters and ulceration on external genitalia, in the vagina, or on the cervix
- vaginal discharge
- pain and itching
- tender, enlarged lymph nodes
- pain when urinating
- high temperature (fever)
- malaise (feeling unwell)
- cold sores around the mouth
- red blisters on the skin
In most cases, the ulcers will heal, and the individual will not have any lasting scars.
When HSV is present on the surface of the skin of an infected person, it can easily be passed on to someone else through the moist skin that lines the mouth, anus, and genitals. The virus may also spread to another individual through other areas of skin, as well as the eyes.
- having unprotected vaginal or anal sex
- having oral sex with a person who gets cold sores
- having genital contact with an infected person
The virus is most likely to be passed on just before the blister appears, when it is visible, and until the blister is completely healed. HSV can still be transmitted to another person when there are no signs of an outbreak, although it is less likely.
If a mother with genital herpes has sores while giving birth, it is possible that the infection will be passed on to the baby.
There are a variety of treatment options. These include:
- taking painkillers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen
- bathing in lightly salted water helps relieve symptoms
- soaking in a warm sitz bath
- applying petroleum jelly to the affected area
- avoiding tight clothing around the affected area
- washing hands thoroughly, especially after touching the affected area
- refraining from sexual activity until symptoms have gone
- If urinating is painful, apply some cream or lotion to the urethra, for example, lidocaine
Some people find that using ice packs can help. Never apply ice directly to the skin, always wrap it in a cloth or towel first.
No drug can get rid of the herpes virus. Doctors may prescribe an antiviral, such as acyclovir, which prevents the virus from multiplying. Antiviral medications will help the outbreak clear up faster and will also help reduce the severity of symptoms.
To reduce the risk of developing or passing on genital herpes:
- use condoms when having sex
- do not have sex while symptoms are present (genital, anal, or skin-to-skin)
- do not kiss when there is a cold sore around the mouth
- do not have many sexual partners
Some people find that stress, being tired, illness, friction against the skin, or sunbathing may trigger recurrences of symptoms. Identifying and avoiding these triggers may help reduce the number of recurrences.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Sun exposure: Continued sun exposure may also lead to melasma. This is due to the activation of melanocytes within the body which starts producing more melanin.
- Stress: Long periods of stress on the body can also trigger hormonal changes and cause melasma.
- 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:
- Malar pattern: This grows on the nose and cheeks
- Mandibular pattern: Starts growing around the jawline
- Brachial melasma: This grows on the upper arms and shoulders
- Lateral cheek pattern: Grows on the cheek on both sides of the face
- 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.
Melanoma is a cancer that develops in melanocytes, the pigment cells present in the skin. It can be more serious than the other forms of skin cancer because it may spread to other parts of the body (metastasize) and cause serious illness and death. About 50,000 new cases of melanoma are diagnosed in the United States every year.
Because most melanomas occur on the skin where they can be seen, patients themselves are often the first to detect many melanomas. Early detection and diagnosis are crucial. Caught early, most melanomas can be cured with relatively minor surgery.
- Moles, brown spots and growths on the skin are usually harmless — but not always. Anyone who has more than 100 moles is at greater risk for melanoma. The first signs can appear in one or more atypical moles. That's why it's so important to get to know your skin very well and to recognize any changes in the moles on your body. Look for the ABCDE signs of melanoma, and if you see one or more, make an appointment with a physician immediately.
- The benign mole, left, is not asymmetrical. If you draw a line through the middle, the two sides will match, meaning it is symmetrical. If you draw a line through the mole on the right, the two halves will not match, meaning it is asymmetrical, a warning sign for melanoma.
- A benign mole has smooth, even borders, unlike melanomas. The borders of an early melanoma tend to be uneven. The edges may be scalloped or notched.
- Most benign moles are all one color — often a single shade of brown. Having a variety of colors is another warning signal. A number of different shades of brown, tan or black could appear. A melanoma may also become red, white or blue.
- Benign moles usually have a smaller diameter than malignant ones. Melanomas usually are larger in diameter than the eraser on your pencil tip (¼ inch or 6mm), but they may sometimes be smaller when first detected.
- Common, benign moles look the same over time. Be on the alert when a mole starts to evolve or change in any way. When a mole is evolving, see a doctor. Any change — in size, shape, color, elevation, or another trait, or any new symptom such as bleeding, itching or crusting — points to danger.
Many kids have allergies., As a parent, you'll want to know what to expect. For instance, if your child has a mild allergy, such as hayfever, you can expect symptoms such as:
- Watery, runny eyes
- Runny nose
- Runny nose
- Nasal congestion
These symptoms can make your child feel bad, but it's not life-threatening.
But sometimes a child can have what's known as anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction that needs immediate medical treatment. Many cases are caused by food allergies, medications, or insect stings
Most anaphylactic reactions have symptoms in two or more areas of the body.
- Trouble breathing or noisy breathing
- Coughing, wheezing Sneezing
- Tightness in the lungs
- Chest pain
- Low blood pressure
- Weak, rapid pulse
- Dizziness, fainting
- Hives or welts
- Itchy skin
- Swelling of the throat, face, lips, or tongue
What Happens During Anaphylaxis?
The person's airways narrow and their throat swells, which can make it hard to breathe. Their blood vessels widen, making their blood pressure fall, sometimes to dangerous levels. A child who has had a severe allergic reaction should carry an emergency kit that includes an epinephrine auto-injector or an epi-pen. As soon as possible after the allergic reaction starts, give the child at one shot of the drug and call for an ambulance.
The injection isn’t a cure. It won’t stop a severe allergic reaction. Even if your child seems OK, emergency medical care is a must. Restock any items you use from the emergency kit so it's ready at all times.
Hives (urticaria), also known as welts, is a common skin condition with itchy, pink to red bumps that appear and disappear anywhere on the body. An individual lesion of hives typically lasts a few hours before fading away, and new hives can appear as older areas disappear.
Hives can be triggered by many things, including:
- Infections with viruses, bacteria, or fungi
- Environmental allergies such as insect bites, pollen, mold, or animal dander
- Physical exposures such as heat, cold, water, sunlight, or pressure
- A medical condition such as gland diseases, blood diseases, or cancer
- Food allergies, such as strawberries, eggs, nuts, or shellfish
Signs and Symptoms-
- Hives can affect any skin surface.
- Hives are usually an itchy rash that can also burn or sting
If you are experiencing mild hives, you might
- Take cool showers
- Apply cool compresses
- Wear loose-fitting clothes
- Avoid strenuous activity
- Use an over-the-counter antihistamine such as diphenhydramine or loratadine
When to Seek Medical Care-
If your child's hives make it difficult to breathe or swallow or if your child feels lightheaded, call an ambulance.
In other, non-urgent, situations, see your doctor if the hives do not improve with treatment or if they continue to appear for more than a few days.
Treatments Your Physician May Prescribe-
After confirming that you have hives, the doctor will work with you to discover the possible cause. The doctor will take a detailed medical history and may do blood tests, urine tests, or X-rays.
Obviously, the best treatment for hives is to discover any triggers and stop your exposure to them. However, most people with hives do not know the cause, and they require medications to get rid of the hives.
The most common medications for hives include:
- Sleep-causing (sedating) type-1 antihistamines such as diphenhydramine, hydroxyzine, or cetirizine
- Non-sleep-causing (non-sedating) type-1 antihistamines such as loratadine, fexofenadine, or desloratadine
- Type-2 antihistamines such as anitidine, cimetidine, or famotidine
- Montelukast, zafirlukast, or zileuton
In rare situations, the doctor might prescribe a short course of oral corticosteroid pills.
1. Wash Up: It is important to keep your skin clean with simple washing up of exposed parts of the body a few times a day. However, never over-do it and never scrub your skin. Skin is a delicate organ and needs gentle cleansing. Use soaps and cleansers which are mild and do not leave your skin feeling dry.
2. Moisturize: You can never over-do this. Do not count the number of times you apply a moisturizer, the idea is to keep your skin healthy and soft. There is only one rule in moisturizers: Do not use oil. Oils do not act the same way moisturizing creams do. Also, all reputed brands of moisturizers are safe and there is no substantial difference between expensive and in-expensive moisturizing creams.
Wash Up & Moisturize
3. Sun Protection: Exposure to moderate sunlight has its health benefits, however, prolonged exposure can cause substantial damage to the skin. Remember to always protect yourself adequately when going out in the sun. Always wear sunscreen when going out into the sun as it guards you against the harmful UV rays of the sun. SPF factor of a sunscreen is a number to look at, higher the better, however, it is not the only factor. As long as the sunscreen is from a reputed company it should be safe to use. Basics of Sun protection
4. Diet: A good healthy diet is all that matters. Get adequate proteins, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates from your food and of-course hydrate with water as needed. Things that do not matter are the myths about foods that produce ‘heat’ in the body. Non-Vegetarian and Sugary foods are not your skin’s enemy, however like all things in life consume all foods in moderation.
5. Exercise: Moderate exercise of your choice on a daily basis is proven to release ‘endorphins’ in your body and also it helps in increasing the blood circulation. These factors definitely affect the health of your skin and keep you looking young. Eat Well and Exercise!
6. Don’t Stress: Stress is now medically proven to affect your health adversely. It is also an established fact that stress causes aggravation of skin ailments and also makes you look older!
7. Catch your ZZZs: Sleep is a big factor in overall health and also the health of your skin. In addition to getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep also try establishing consistency in the time you go to bed and wake up. Sleep increases collagen in your skin, the component that helps keep your skin looking younger. See a Doctor when in doubt.
The 8th Habit: Know when you need a doctor. Never ever ignore any skin ailment; a small thing today can blow out of proportion tomorrow. Use your sensibilities and approach a dermatologist whenever in doubt.
