Betnovate usage for so many years has done harm to your skin. Unless needed, it shouldn't be used for such long period of time. You start by taking fresh aloe vera leaves, take out pulp, put a little turmeric and lemon drops. Make a liquid in a mixer. Pour this into ice tray and make ice cubes. Clean your face with one cube in morning and one night. Use a face pack made of- chandan powder+ multani mitti+ rise water+ honey few drops. Apply on face once a day and wait till dry. Then wash with warm water. Scrub your face with a mild scrub every alternate day. Drink 3 liters of water daily and don't step out in sun without a good sunscreen application.

Breast augmentation like silicon insertion are permanent or needs to be replaced over the period? Like 10 years to 12 years after insertion.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Breast implant usually come with a guarantee of around ten to fifteen years, after which it might need a replaced. The current breast implant technology has been around for approximately thirty years, and a large number of women have had these implants for thirty years now and report no problem. In some cases, a revision is needed, especially if there have been complications, but so long as breast implants are looked after this may not be necessary. Regular follow up with your doctor needs to be done because silicon implant may shows sometime rupture silently without showing any symptoms and may cause infection, so need to be cautious about so.

I am 25 year old male. Suffering from dark circles around eyes. Please tell me how to remove it?
treating dark circles around eyes 1.Drinking lots of water is good 2.Take nutritious and timely food. 3.Avoid fried foods and eat fruits, nuts, greens, milk and whole grains. 4.Have timely and adequate sleep. This is one of the major reasons for sagging of skin 5.Be relaxed and avoid tension 6.Daily jogging or such exercise to ensure good blood circulation which helps nutrients reaching the skin and face. Facial massage will also promote good circulation. 7.Don?t expose to hot direct sun. Wear cap, full sleeve shirt and shoes which will protect you from sun.. Generally 10 AM to 4 PM is the hottest. Avoid exposure at that time. Keep hydrated by drinking water and preferring juicy fruits. Your complexion will improve and dark rings will disappear. For any further help, we have good treatment in homoeopathy. If you are interested, please let me know along with any related problems. You may opt for private consultation. I will prescribe which will be available in homoeopathic shops.

Pimple is a disorder of sebaceous glands on the skin. You need proper treatment for betterness of acne and for prevention and treatment of complications of acne. For eg: hyperpigmentation, scars etc. Treatment depends on the severity of acne and thus need proper examination of the types and no. Of lesions. So I would adv you to meet a dermatologist for proper management.

One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. The association between diet and acne isn't clear but some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin c and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. I am a registered dietitian and a doctor who will help you in your skin problems do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Calcium in the epidermis helps regulate the skin's pigment cells, allowing it to tan in sunlight to protect itself from harmful UV rays. Thus there is no role of it in clearing complexion.Apply a sunscreen in the morning.If you wd like to go for a more natural approach, you can try rubbing the slices of lemons, potato, tomatoes, cucumber which are also found to be beneficial in clearing the complexion. Just keep in mind, though, that the effectiveness of the treatments mentioned depends largely on your skin problem and skin type.
