Acne: Causes & Treatment

DDVL, MBBS
Dermatologist, Bangalore
Acne: Causes & Treatment

Acne breakout can ruin the look of healthy skin completely. Sometimes it gets very severe as the eruptions keep happening continually. Acne occurs when oil, dead skin or bacteria block the pores on your skin. Though it is not dangerous, acne can be embarrassing and can leave scars on your skin. Severe acne can also be quite painful. Pimples in the form of blackheads and whiteheads are the main symptoms of acne.

Causes of Acne:

  1. Stress: Stress is a major cause that makes your skin prone to acne. When the body is stressed, it produces excessive testosterone (a sex hormone) resulting in excessive oil production. Stress also impairs the immune system of the body so that it becomes vulnerable to acne.
  2. Cosmetics: Some cosmetics (usually oil based) tend to clog the pores of the skin which may result in acne. Using harsh cleansing agents can dry and irritate the skin. Also, gentle washing of the skin is recommended to avoid breakouts.
  3. Certain medications and drugs: Consumption of specific over the counter medicines like the ones containing bromide and use of recreational drugs like marijuana and cocaine can lead to the occurrence of acne as side effects.
  4. Genetics: Certain genetic factors may also be responsible for someone being more prone to acne than others.

Treatment for Acne:

Cosmetic dermatology procedures can successfully help you do away with acne scars. Blue-light therapy is a procedure in cosmetic dermatology which can work wonders for acne scars. A narrow- band, but high - intensity Blue-light is used to counter Porphyrins released by bacteria causing acne. Porphyrins easily absorb Blue-light and the light leads to radical damage of Porphyrins when used in certain wavelengths.

There are also certain topical creams available, which can improve mild scarring, most of the acne scars are either depressed or raised type and need a combination of surgical procedures and skin resurfacing.

The therapeutic options that are currently available to treat acne scars include subcision, dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, derma rollers, chemical peels, TCA cross, ablative lasers, fractional lasers and dermal fillers.

Take a ripe tomato, mash it and add a few drops of lemon juice to it. Apply it and watch your skin tone lighten gradually. Another great way to make oily skin fair is to apply a mixture of milk powder, papaya, honey and milk to your face.

Best way is to stop doing anything for sometime. Prevent your face from sun and dust etc. Drink lots of water. Keep skin hydrated. After doing above for a month, start applying raw milk enriched with'varnya' gana' herbs for safe and effective but gradual transformation.

To take care of your skin: Use a suitable exfoliation treatment once or twice a week. It must be effective yet gentle and respectful. Choose a pH-neutral exfoliation product, which is perfect for smoothing and purifying the skin while respecting its natural balance. 2) it is important to choose daily moisturizing skin care products that balance the level of water within the skin. You may also use a moisturizing mask regularly, removing the excess with a spring water spray. 3) choose daily skincare products that include solar filters. They reduce the harmful effects of the sun, which accelerates skin aging 4) Pollution, smoke, stress… All these have harmful effects on the skin. Use skincare products to protect your skin against these daily stresses before leaving the house and cleanse your skin thoroughly when you come home in the evening.

All about erysipelas

MD - Skin,VD & Lepxsy, M.B.B.S.
Dermatologist, Delhi
All about erysipelas

Erysipelas is an infection caused by bacteria that occurs in the upper portion of the skin. It is usually caused by the Streptococcus pyogenes bacteria. This bacterium is also responsible for causing sore throat. It is characterized by large and red patches on your skin.

Symptoms-
The symptoms of erysipelas are -
1. You may experience chills and fever
2. Swelling of various glands in the body
3. Presence of red spots on the skin with raised edges
4. You may experience blisters on your skin
5. You may also feel lethargic and dizzy


Causes-
This disease occurs when the bacterium makes its way through the upper layer of the skin. If you have cuts and bruises on the skin, then the bacteria may enter the skin, and thus lead to infection. However, they don't cause any harm if they are present on the skin. Erysipelas may also be caused if you have infections of the throat and the nose. 
Some other causes of erysipelas are:
1. If you are bitten by an insect
2. If you have had a surgical procedure 
3. Certain skin complications such as psoriasis may lead to erysipelas
4. It may also be caused by ulcers
5. If you are affected by diabetes which results in swelling of the legs
6. If you are a used of abusive drugs such as heroin 

Treatment
The age group that is at the highest risk bracket consists of older people and young children. The immune systems of older adults are weak; so the chances of infections occurring are higher. The treatments for this disease include consumption of fluids and keeping the affected part at an elevated position to minimize the swelling. 

It is also recommended to use medications only after doctor's consultation. In serious cases, antibiotics are administered through the vein. If the disease causes deterioration of healthy tissues in the affected part, then surgery is recommended to treat it. 

The preventive measures for this disease include keeping your wounds clean, maintaining good personal hygiene and using moisturizers to prevent the skin from drying.

Hi im 21 now. I do not drink and smoke bt my lips are black. Please tell me how to make it pink with chemicals.
Follow these best tips to get normal and natural pink lips :- 1. Moisturize your lips you must keep your lips moisturized if you want them to stay healthy and therefore pink. If you are going outside, try applying a bit of petroleum jelly or lip balm and if you are inside, use some Milk fat (ghee). 2. Use Pomegranate Seeds and Milk. Another simple way to lighten dark, dull lips and create a beautiful pink color is using pomegranate seeds. Crush up the seeds and mix it with some milk cream. If you apply this home remedy to your lips regularly, you will start to see them becoming redder and fuller. 3. Apply Cucumber Juice Another great way to reduce any darkness on your lips is to apply a bit of cucumber juice. Simply slice a cucumber, rubbing it against your lips to allow the juices to soak on. If you do this for five minutes each day, you can lighten dark lips to a beautiful pink color. 4. Mix Rose Petals in Milk. Rose petals are another one of the great home remedies for pink lips. Simply soak some rose petals in milk for a little bit of time. Then use the petals to make a paste, adding a few drops of both glycerin and honey. Apply the paste on your lips and wait fifteen minutes before gently rubbing it off using milk. This remedy can produce amazing results. 5. Massage with Lemon Juice Another remedy only requires lemon and some sugar. Cut a thin slice from the lemon, sprinkling a bit of sugar on top and rub your lips with this combination each day. This works well because lemon works to naturally bleach your lips, returning them to their light, pink color while sugar works to exfoliate dead skin cells. 6. Mix Turmeric Powder with Milk mix raw turmeric powder and milk cream to achieve great results. You can also try mixing turmeric powder and gram’s flour to light your lips. Just keep in mind that gram’s flour dries out lips making it a poor option for those whose lips are already dry.

Benefits Of Green Tea For Skin in hindi - त्वचा के लिए ग्रीन टी के फायदे

बात-चीत, मिलन, मन को बनाने या किसी चीज में लगाए रखने के लिए किसी न किसी पेय पदार्थ का सहारा लेने का प्रचलन हमारे सिविलाइज़ेशन के दौर से ही चलता आ रहा है। समय समय पर इसके प्रकार बदले हैं पर जरूरत वैसी की वैसी ही रही है और इसीलिए सिलसिले में आज के समय में चाय सभी की ज़रूरत है आप किसी के यहां जाएं तो स्वागत चाय से ही होता है। मन बनाए रखना है तो चाय की चुस्की का सहारा ले लिया जाता है और हां ऐसा सिर्फ शहरी इलाकों में ही नही बल्कि यही दशा देहात की भी हो चली है। मौका कैसा भी हो चाय तो मस्ट है हम सभी के लिए। और चाय के बढ़ते इस प्रचलन की वजह है इससे मिलने वाली ताजगी। दरअसल-चाय पीते ही आलस खत्म हो जाता है और लगता है कि तन-मन में एक नई ताजगी आ गई है। जब चाय ने जब घर आफिस, मीटिंग्स सब जगह कब्जा कर ही लिया तो लोगो ने नार्मल चाय की बजाय ग्रीन टी पीनी शुरू। ग्रीन टी से तो लगभग हम अभी वाकिफ हैं और हल्का फुल्का इसके फ़ायदों से भी अवेयर हैं पर शायद आप इसके कुछ खास फायदों से अब तक हैं पूरी तरह अनजान। जी हां ग्रीन टी सिर्फ मोटापा ही कम नही करता बल्कि ये शरीर को कई और तरीको  से लाभ पहुंचाने के साथ ही हमारी स्किन को सुधारने के लिए रामबाण नुस्खा है।  
 ग्रीन टी बहुत सी स्किन समस्याओं को दूर करती है।  तो आइए जानिए की कैसे ग्रीन टी हमारे लिए अलग आग टाइप्स की स्किन प्रोब्लेम्स में लाभ पहुंचाता है। 

1. पिम्पल्स को कहें गुडबाय
गर्मियों में मिट्टी और पसीने की वजह से स्किन पर पिम्पल्स होने लगते हैं। इस समस्या से छुटकारा पाने के लिए ग्रीन टी को पानी में उबालें और ठंडा होने पर उसमें 2 चम्मच दही मिलाकर अच्छे से पेस्ट की तरह बना लें। अब इस पेस्ट को अपने चेहरे पर लगाएं। इससे आपके पिम्पल्स जल्द ही दूर होने लगेंगे। और आप फिरें अपनी आकर्षक दमकती त्वचा के साथ इतराते फिरें।

2. एन्टी-एजिंग
बढ़ती उम्र को भला कौन रोक सकता है , पर किसी भी महिला को अपनी उम्र दिखाना अच्छा नहीं लगता है। लेकिन अगर आप भी अपनी उम्र को छुपाना चाहते हैं तो ठंडी ग्रीन टी में कुछ बूंदे नींबू के रस की मिलाएं और रात को सोने से पहले इस मिश्रण को चेहरे पर लगा लें। सुबह ठंडे पानी से चेहरा धोएं। कई दिन तक रोजाना ऐसा करें। कुछ ही समय में आपकी उम्र में इजाफा होगा पर बुढापा नही नजर आएगा।

 3. ब्यूटीफुल स्किन पाएं
अगर आप सुन्दर, बेदाग त्वचा पाना चाहते हैं तो ग्रीन टी में थोड़ा-सा गुलाब जल मिलाकर अच्छे से मिक्स करें ताकि टी अपना रंग छोड़ना शुरू कर दें। अब कॉटन की मदद से इससे पूरे चेहरे की सफाई करें। रोजाना ऐसा करने से आप खूबसूरत त्वचा पा सकते है।

4. सनबर्न से सुरक्षा
चेहरे पर सनस्क्रीन लगाने पर भी सनबर्न की दिक्कत अगर खत्म नहीं होती तो आप नहाने के पानी में चाय की पत्ती डाल लें और तब नहाएं। इससे आपको सनबर्न से होने वाली जलन, खुजली आदि से राहत मिलेगी।

 5. स्किन प्रोटेक्टर
ग्रीन टी स्किन के लिए बेहद ही फायदेमंद होती है। इससे आपकी स्किन टाइट रहती है। इसमें एंटी-एजिंग एलिमेंट्स होने के साथ ही ग्रीन टी में एंटी-ऑक्सीडेंट्स और एंटी-इन्फ्लामेंटरी एलिमेंट्स भी है जिसकी वजह से यह स्किन को प्रोटेक्ट करती है। ग्रीन टी से स्क्रब बनाने के लिए व्हाइट शुगर, थोड़ा पानी और ग्रीन टी को अच्छे से मिलाएं। यह मिश्रण आपकी स्किन को नरिश करने के साथ-साथ सॉफ्ट बनाएगा और स्किन के हाइड्रेशन लेवल को भी बनाए रखेगा।

6. आंखों की सूजन करे कम
चाय पत्ती आंखों की सूजन और थकान उतारने के लिए परफेक्ट उपाय है। इसके लिए आपको मशक्कत करने की ज़रूरत नहीं, बस दो टी बैग्स लीजिए और हल्के गर्म पानी में गीला करके 15 मिनट के लिए आंखों पर रखिए। इससे आपकी आंखों में होने वाली जलन और सूजन कम हो जाती है। चाय में प्राकृतिक एस्ट्रिजेंट होता है, जो आपकी आंखों की सूजन को कम करता है। टी बैग लगाने से डार्क सर्कल भी खत्म होते हैं।

7. एक्ने प्रॉब्लम से छुटकारा

चाय एंटी-बैक्टीरियल, एंटी-फंगल, एंटी-ऑक्सीडेंट होने के कारण सूजन को कम करती है। चेहरे के मुहांसों को दूर करने के लिए ग्रीन टी परफेक्ट है। चेहरे से मुहांसे खत्म करने के लिए रात में सोने से पहले ग्रीन टी की पत्तियां चेहरे पर लगाएं। 
 
 8. पैरों की बदबू का इलाज

ग्रीन टी की महक स्ट्रॉन्ग और पावरफुल होती है। इसकी महक को आप पैरों की दुर्गंध दूर करने के लिए यूज़ कर सकते हैं। यूज़ की हुई चाय पत्ती को पानी में डाल दें और उसमें पैरों को 20 मिनट के लिए डालकर रखें। इससे चाय आपके पैरों के पसीने को सोख लेती है और स्मेल को खत्म करती है।

इस तरह खुद को फिट रखने के लिए सुबह ग्रीन टी पिएं और बताए गए तरीकों से अपनी त्वचा पर प्राकृतिक चमक और सुंदरता लाएं, और आप हमेशा नजर आएंगी हसीन और जवां।

Does gerd cause anxiety and motion sickness And when we leave home do we feel urge to empty the stomach.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Lybrate user, Actually it is the opposite way. Anxiety created GERD and motion sickness. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy.
