Laser Skin Resurfacing

M. Ch. (Plastic Surgery), MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Hisar
Laser Skin Resurfacing

Are you bored of how your skin appears? Well, there are techniques to give it a new life. Your skin’s natural baby look can be back with techniques like Laser Resurfacing. It is a technique that can improve the appearance of the skin. It can improve the skin on the face, neck or hands. It is an effective method of reversing the damages that have been caused due to sun exposure, raging and unhealthy lifestyles. It can be ablative or non-ablative. In the ablative technique, rapid pulses of light, which have high intensity, are used for removing the layers the have been damaged by sun rays. Non-ablative lasers are usually non-wounding in nature. In this method, collagen growth is activated and catalysed. This gives a tight look to the skin.

When to Go For Laser Skin Resurfacing?

There are certain conditions that need to be considered prior to taking up this method. Here are some of the conditions listed below:

  • When you find your skin to be sun-damaged and there are wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, it is a good idea to go for this treatment.
  • You can go for this treatment if you have experienced certain irregular changes in the colour of the skin. There could be blotchiness or brown spots even.
  • You can opt this if your skin’s beauty is getting marred by scars. The scars can make your skin surface look uneven and rough.
  • This is useful to get rid of precancerous skin growths.

Well, every beautifying technique has some advantages and unavoidable disadvantages. One must consider all the aspects involved in the process before deciding to opt for it. Here are the pros and cons of the process:

Pros

  • It helps in smoothing and tightening of the skin.
  • It can leave you with long-lasting improvements in the present quality and texture of your skin.
  • It can also be useful in getting rid of facial hairs and hairs on the neck, chest and hands.

Cons

  • It can lead to scarring and pigment changes.
  • It can escalate skin disorders. It can also aggravate allergic reactions or cold sores
  • The process is not effective for wrinkles. It is quite natural that the wrinkles caused by movement of the facial muscles will have a tendency to reappear.

These are some of the most important aspects of this treatment. But, you must consult your dermatologist or surgeon before deciding to go for this surgery. He or she will tell you what suits you the best. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon.

Ayurvedic Treatment For Gastric -गैस का आयुर्वेदिक इलाज

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Ayurvedic Treatment For Gastric -गैस का आयुर्वेदिक इलाज

गैस की समस्या अपच की उप-उत्पाद है। यह या तो आंतों के दर्द का कारण बन सकती है या रिव्यूम से अप्रिय गंध के साथ रिलीज हो सकती है। कई बार, यह गैस हास्य का कारण बनती है, लेकिन जनता में यह बदबूदार गैस छोड़ना शर्मनाक हो सकता है। 
गैस के कारण
बिगड़े हुए पाचन और छोटी आंतों में खाद्य पदार्थों के खराब अवशोषण से पेट फूलता है। कुछ परिस्थितियां, जैसे इर्रिटेबल बोवेल सिंड्रोम, कब्ज, क्रोहन रोग या बृहदान्त्र कैंसर, भी पेट फूला सकता है। इसके अतिरिक्त, एक कम फाइबर आहार और एक गतिहीन जीवनशैली के कारण अपच या अमा (श्लेष्म) गठन होता है, इससे भी गैस की समस्या हो सकती है। 
गैस का आयुर्वेदिक इलाज
पेट फूलना, आयुर्वेद में आधनाम के रूप में जाना जाता है, वात और पित्त दोष की असंतुलन के कारण होता है। गैस से छुटकारा पाने के लिए इन आयुर्वेदिक उपचारों का उपयोग करें:
1. पुदीना चाय:
पुदीना प्रभावी ढंग से आपके मंथन युक्त पेट को शांत करता है और गैस और दर्द से राहत देता है। इसके सगंध तेल में मेन्थॉल है, जिसका पाचन पथ की मांसपेशी पर एक एंटीस्पास्मोडिक प्रभाव होता है। आप अपने भोजन के बाद इस हर्बल चाय का एक कप पी सकते हैं।
2. इलायची:
यह किसी भी पाचन तंत्र विकार के इलाज के लिए बहुत उपयोगी है। इसमें मौजूद वाष्पशील तेल गैस और अपच सहित कई पाचन विकारों को ठीक करने में मदद करता है। यह अम्लता को राहत देने में भी मदद करता है। आप इलायची के बीज का उपभोग सकते हैं, या खाना पकाने के दौरान भुने हुए इलायची के पाउडर को सब्जियों में जोड़ सकते हैं। इलायची की चाय अपच और गैस की वजह से सिर दर्द का इलाज करने में भी मदद कर सकती है।
3. अजवाइन:
आधा या एक चम्मच खुराक को गुनगुने पानी के साथ लें। यह गैस के दर्द से राहत देता है और बीमारी का इलाज करता है।
4. सौंफ के बीज:
मसालेदार या वसायुक्त भोजन के कारण गैस और अपच से पीड़ित होने पर, सौंफ़ के बीज का सेवन आपकी समस्या का इलाज करने में मदद कर सकता है। इन बीजों को सुखाएँ, भुने और पाउडर बनाने के लिए पीस लें। इस पाउडर के आधे चम्मच को पानी के साथ दिन में दो बार लें।
5 काली मिर्च:
हमारे पेट में हाइड्रोक्लोरिक एसिड की कमी की स्थिति के दौरान, काली मिर्च समस्या का इलाज करने के लिए बहुत प्रभावी हो सकती है। काली मिर्च गैस्ट्रिक रस के प्रवाह को बढ़ा सकती है और इस प्रकार पाचन में मदद कर सकती है। पीसे हुए गुड़ के साथ पीसी हुई काली मिर्च अपच के दौरान छाछ के साथ ली जा सकती है। आप पाउडर काली मिर्च, पाउडर अदरक, धनिया बीज और पुदीने के पत्तों का मिश्रण भी तैयार कर सकते हैं और हर दिन इस मिश्रण का एक चम्मच खा सकते हैं।
6. लौंग:
लौंग आंत गतिशीलता और गैस्ट्रोइंटेस्टाइनल स्राव को बढ़ा सकते हैं जिससे पाचन में मदद मिलती है, और गैस और अपच समस्याओं का इलाज होता है। आप पेट की समस्याओं का इलाज करने के लिए लौंग सीधे खा सकते हैं।
7. गरम पानी:
अकेले गर्म पानी भी आपको गैस और अपच से राहत दिला सकता है। 
यह हमारे शरीर से सभी जहरीले पदार्थों को निकल कर हमारे शरीर को साफ करने में मदद करता है और भोजन को भी तोड़ देता है, ताकि हमारे शरीर को पचाने में आसानी हो। हर सुबह गर्म पानी का एक गिलास पीना, एक स्वस्थ अभ्यास है और आपकी पाचन प्रणाली को ट्रैक पर रखता है। इसे अधिक शक्तिशाली बनाने के लिए, इसमें नींबू का रस जोड़ें।
8. हींग:
यह एक प्रभावी उपाय है जो पेट की समस्याओं, पेट में दर्द और कब्ज जैसी कई पाचन समस्याओं को ठीक कर सकता है। आप गर्म पानी के एक गिलास में हींग की एक चुटकी डाल, दिन में दो से तीन बार पी सकते हैं।

Autosensitization Dermatitis: Symptoms and Treatment

MBBS, MD - Dermatology, F.C.P.S.(Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy), Diploma in Venerology & Dermatology (DVD), DNB (Dermatology)
Dermatologist, Pune
Autosensitization Dermatitis: Symptoms and Treatment

Our skin is delicate and is the body’s largest organ. The skin is susceptible to a wide range of ailments and conditions, since it is the most exposed part of the body. Autoeczematisation (generally known as autosensitisation dermatitis) is skin inflammation caused by bacteria, which are present in various parts of the human body. The eczema or infection usually begins from the arms and legs before spreading to the rest of the body.

It is also referred to as id response. It is an intense response to a variety of stimuli that affect the skin. These include irritable and infectious skin conditions. The rash that characterises the id response, which is viewed as immunologic in origin, is known as dermatophytid, pediculid, or bacterid. When linked with another infectious disease in the body, it becomes all the more intense.

Autoeczematisation is generally caused when the skin has a reaction to a contamination or infection. The disease might be caused by an infection, bacteria, microscopic organisms or even a parasite. In case the body builds up an infection, the skin responds to it by weakening the immune system. This makes the skin more prone to catching a disease or an illness. This can result in autoeczematisation and make the skin more irritable.

Symptoms-

Given below are the symptoms of autoeczematisation:

  • Itching

  • Skin bumps

  • Blisters

  • Red skin

  • Delicate skin

Autoeczematisation usually begins with an infection brought on by microbes, bacteria, or some organism. It will show itself on the skin in about 1 to 2 weeks as an allergy. In typical dermatitis symptoms, individuals experience dry and irritated skin along with wounds or injuries appearing on the arms and legs.

Similarly, as with any skin issue, in case it is persistent and painful, you need to quickly contact your specialist, dermatologist, or autoeczematisation skin care expert.

Treatment-

There are three sorts of treatment for autoeczematisation once an analysis has been done. Most doctors treat the origin of the disease or infection. Once this has been fully accomplished, the injuries can be treated.

  1. Corticosteroids: Corticosteroids are creams that you apply to the skin. This cream comes in both over-the-counter and prescription form. They are used to control itching and irritation.

  2. Antihistamines: Antihistamines can also be prescribed and are available over the counter. These are used to control the itching. Benadryl is a common over-the-counter type of syrup and pill that can be taken.

  3. Lotions: Once autoeczematisation has been diagnosed, it's important to keep the skin appropriately hydrated. A mild lotion should be applied on the skin once a day.

Hello lybrate-user, discoloration, uneven skin tone all ruin your complexion. This is known as hyperpigmentation in medical terms. It’s a condition caused by increased levels of melanin, the pigment in the body that determines skin color. They are usually common in people who have acne and develop black spots when acne resolves. It is also caused due to sun exposure, certain over the counter medications, hormonal imbalances and certain food groups. There are a wide range of treatments for hyperpigmentation. The success depends on the cause of the hyperpigmentation. Strict sun protection and use of sunscreen are required in order to prevent worsening and recurrence of hyperpigmentation before, during and after treatment. Visit a dermatologist in your area so that he/she can access the extent of your hyperpigmentation and make a customised treatment plan. The treatment for black spots could include topical medications, use of serums according to your skin type and cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels & laser pulsed light therapy. Please visit good dermatologist.

Stockings won't help now as itvis already grade 3 and blackening had already started. You have 2 choices either to go for Sclerotherapy or laser ablation. Sclerotherapy has much recurrence in future, so laser therapy is the ultimate option remains now. Even you need to have grafting also. For further assistance contact me.

It seams to me a coincidence for the two to happen together. Missing your periods is a separate issue. As far as bleeding with stool is concerned, it could be due to number of causes but looks like piles in your case. Avoid constipation would help in that case. Take plenty of fluids, fibre and fruits. Additional fibre like ispabagole 3tsf with a glass of water will help. In case it doesn't help, please have yourself examined by a surgeon. Thanks.
