Care of nails

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Chennai
1.Trim the nails regularly. While trimming, try to trim nails straight rather than curving sharply at corners especially the great toe nails which are prone to start growing inwards at the sides and become painful.
2. Avoid biting nails or chewing nails.
3. Avoid cutting or pushing the part of skin sealing the space where the nail starts in fingers as they act as barriers to prevent infection.
4. Never rip or bite a small piece of skin next to finger nail or toenail
5. In old people with thick nails, it’s easier to cut the nails after soaking in water for 30 minutes.

How to Avoid Sun Tan?

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Chennai
How to Avoid Sun Tan?
Skin colour becomes a shade lighter with proper and regular use of sunscreens because it will help you lose the sun tan. Sunscreen should be used daily, regardless of whether very sunny or cloudy day. Sun exposure occurs throughout the day. It can be through clouds, through regular glass windows of cars or homes, and even during short time spent walking to nearby shop or picking children from school bus. Try to stay indoors during 10: 00 am to 4: 00 pm. Sunscreens should be applied over exposed areas of body like face, neck, chest, forearms, hands, etc. Most cosmetically acceptable sunscreens need to be applied at least 20 minutes before going outdoors and repeated every 3-5 hourly depending on the sunscreen constituents. You need to also reapply sunscreen every time you sweat or wash off unless you are using special sunscreens which are water resistant. Use water resistant sunscreens while swimming. Even water resistant sunscreens protection wane off in 40-80 minutes and this should be kept in mind while swimming. Consider using sunscreen with atleast spf (sun protecting factor) 30. Please do not apply too little amount of sunscreens.

Psoriasis

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Chennai
Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a common, chronic and recurrent skin disease. There are many myths and stigmas associated with psoriasis. The most important point to remember is psoriasis is not an infectious disease and does not spread from one individual to other by skin contact or contact with the exfoliating skin. Repeatedly, patients ask for cure for psoriasis but unfortunately on cannot guarantee cure as the course of psoriasis is unpredictable. Psoriasis has a chronic persisting nature and has a tendency to recur. Most people have mild disease with usually onset of lesions over scalp or elbows. Some may have disease just localized to scalp or palms and soles for many years, while few may have only nail involvement. But unfortunately, some patients may have extensive and severe disease and sometimes even associated joint disease.
Psoriasis patients may have relatives with the disease but not necessarily inheritance in every generation since psoriasis has polygenetic inheritance. Psoriasis can occur anytime from newborn to seventies but commonly affects young individuals. Severe emotional stress, alcohol intake, smoking, cold climate, infection and certain drugs exacerbates psoriasis. Psoriasis lesions may occur at sites of trivial trauma like scratches, incisions, burns, etc and thus one should avoid trauma to skin. Individuals with psoriasis over scalp should avoid harsh combing with sharp toothed comb and rather use a blunt tooth comb gently. In case of lesions over palms and soles, one should avoid walking barefoot and always use protective footwear as very trivial trauma while walking barefoot may trigger new lesions of psoriasis or worsen the pre-existing ones. If there are psoriasis lesions on beard area, then one should avoid shaving rather trimming may be tried in order to avoid exacerbation of psoriasis lesions. Similarly people with psoriasis lesions over scalp should avoid tonsuring. Regular moisturising of skin with coconut oil or other moisturizers should be done. The oil should preferably be applied immediately after bath over mildly wet skin followed by 10-15 minutes of sunlight exposure in the morning.
Starting an early treatment for skin lesions is beneficial. Limited skin disease usually responds to ointments and light therapy. Extensive skin disease requires oral tablets and sometimes injections and after the skin lesions respond well then treatment is gradually tapered and stopped. Self-medication should be avoided. Even though psoriasis has an unpredictable course and cure cannot be guaranteed but psoriasis can be managed well giving a good quality of life. Obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, high lipid levels and heart disease are the bad companies of psoriasis. One should adapt a healthy active lifestyle to keep the bad companies away as they worsen psoriasis. Balanced diet, regular exercise, meditation or yoga or other relaxation methods are beneficial and in people taking non vegetarian diet, intake of oily fish may be beneficial. It’s not worth worrying about cure instead start early treatment for psoriasis.

Why does acne occur?

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Chennai
Why does acne occur?
Hormonal changes at adolescents trigger increased sebum production. Sebum is a kind of oil produced by skin to maintain its moisture content. Excess sebum can clog the skin pores. Propioni bacteria acnes, is normally present over skin, overgrows in areas with high sebum and releases mediators that lead to inflammation of skin. Minimal inflammation increases thickening of the lining of pores and finally blockages resulting in blackheads and whiteheads. Increased inflammation may lead to a deeper blockage in the pore causing a raised skin lesion (pimple) and an even deeper blockage can cause painful bigger skin lesions- nodules or cysts, the most severe acne lesions. Nodules and cysts very often result in pigmentation and scarring and require early treatment. While a simple pimple may or may not leave pigmentation and the pigmentation left behind by them is milder and tend to resolve faster. The whiteheads if improperly removed cause ice pick scars and hence should avoid removing them. Sometimes in trying to remove whiteheads, one actually ends up irritating the pore causing more inflammation and bigger pimples.
Please do not rupture or squeeze your pimples.
Minimal handling of the skin with pimples is advised.
Nodules and cysts require early treatment.

You are loosing hair, do you see lot of hair falling completely form the root or are they breaking off? how long you are having hair fal and how many hairs average per day? you could use voluminizing shampoos there is one availbale by pantene, but that just gives a visual feel of volume but you need to look into your hair fall. Watch your diet, include lots of fruits and vegetables. Check your hemoglobin, serum ferritin, b12 levels and thyroid function tests - if there are within normal limits. If the hair fall continues and loosing too many hairs consult a dermatologist.

What is the easiest way to get rid of corn? is surgery only option or there are other solutions to the problem mentioned above? cost of remedy and name of medicines to be taken.

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Chennai
First it needs to be ascertained that it is corn and not its mimicker, wart. Apply corn cap regularly and it would gradually resolve. If not resolving with corn cap- soak the area in lukewarm water for 30 minutes followed by patting it dry and applying keratolytic ointment daily at bed time for 2 weeks for it to soften. The it can be pared. But paring should be done by doctor. Please donot ry paring at home. You need to look at your footwear laso. Make sure they are not too tight and having hard sole. Go for softer soles, they are plenty available in the market and it should be comfortable to wear. Proper footwear and regular foot cae can prevent repeated corn formation.

Postinflammatory hyperpigmenation tends to occur commonly at sites of insect bites, but pigmentation and site needs to be seen. It usually subsides slowly on its own, but if persists beyond 2-3 months then consider consulting dermatologist.

General Skin Care

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Chennai
General Skin Care
1. Daily cleansing of skin should be done, but avoid regular use of antimicrobial soaps.

2. Skin folds or creases (groin, underarms, abdominal folds) need to be kept clean and dry. Increased moisture and warmth in these areas may act as a good environment for microbial proliferation.

3. Wear cotton clothes in summers. One should preferably use a footwear with good aeration if frequently getting foot infections or use powder prior to wearing shocks and try to remove shoes and provide aeration to feet during recces time.

4. Skin rashes can not only be due to infections, but also be caused by allergy to footwear, cosmetics, tapes, soaps, fabrics, color leaching out of fabric, jeans buttons or sometimes due to irritant dermatitis on coming in contact with irritants like certain highly concentrated disinfectants, etc whole body rashes could result from food or drug allergies or viral exanthem (viral fevers). Consult a dermatologist to ascertain the type of rash and take proper treatment. Avoid self medication as it may complicate your condition. E. G. A rash of hepres zoster may be mistakenly treated by self medication and when it does not respond one reaches the doctor late when actually the treatment should have better results when started within 72 hours, and best if started within 24 hours. The risk of postherpetic neuralgia that is pain persisting after treatment for herpes zoster skin rash is higher when treatment not started early.

5. Use moisturizing creams or ointments for dry skin. Avoid alcohol based products over dry skin as it will cause further dryness.

6. For people with urinary and stool incontinence- use good diaper and change them frequently. Change diapers immediatley on soiling with stool. Urine and stools can irritate the skin and damage the skin barrier and cause breakdown of skin- red rashes, raw areas.

7. Avoid frequent use of excessive talc powders as they can" cake up" and keep moisture in and thus promote microbial growth in folds especially over neck fold of small children.

8. Use proper fitting footwear with soft soles to avoid hardening of skin at pressure points. Regularly use moisturizer over feet at bedtime to keep the feet soft and supple. Weekly soaking the feet in lukewarm water for 20 min and pat dry and apply moisturizer at night would keep feet softer. For diabetics if they have neuropathy use plain tap water or lukewarm water should be checked by someone else to ascertain the water temperature is just warm.

9. In old people with thick nails, its easier to cut the nails after soaking in water for 30 minutes.
