The only site which answers questions soon in the best way possible. So am a 22 year old female. Considering doing chemical peel for hands, legs and feet nd back. As am heavily tanned and normal bleaching in parlour never worked. Will it remove my tan completely and make me fair? And I have these dark marks caused due to my cat scratching and biting will that go too? How much might it cost? And are skin whitening treatments and chemical peels the same?

Skin whitening can have many types, laser, microdermabrasion, chemical face packs etc. Chemical peeling removes the upper layer off and the new skin takes place, it is certainly very effective. Laser de tanning is recommended if your tanning is so stubborn. Whilst you are going for the treatment, you can get the marks and scars (by your cat) removed by the same treatment. Your skin needs to be analyzed by a dermatologist before deciding what treatment will be effective. Bleach has chemicals but the effect is not as great as you need to remove a skin tan that has been there for too long. Your skin is prone to tanning, so please a apply a sun screen whenever you go out in sun.

Hello lybrate-user, the pigmentation you are suffering from is called melasma. Melasma is a kind of hyperpigmentation seen mostly in females of middle age and is dictated by hormones and sunlight. It treatment is challenging but with proper regimen good results can be achieved. Usually the treatment is divided into clinic based treatment and home based. At clinic, I suggest series of chemical peels like glycolic, jessner, tca with or without microdermabrasion. At home you can apply cream containing kojic acid, arbutin, etc and vitamin c serum for maintenance. Use high spf sunscreen on regular basis. Use glycolic acid based facewash. Hope this will take care of your issue. Let me know if you require any help from my side. Dr. Hardik pitroda.

Use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use sunscreen with spf 30 daily. Use natural face pack of multani mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar with mother for 5 mins after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

SKIN CARE
Winter is the worst season for Skin- flaking, itchiness, pimples, redness, dullness is usual and neglect of daily care can easily lead to habitual dehydration, with sensitive skins and red patches. But it is so difficult to care for skin in winters with chilling cold, numb fingers, freezing water. Keeping these factors in mind here are some tips-
Despite the cold do not forget drinking lots of water-preferably warm water
The glow is not superficial. Its deep. Make it a point to drink any one type of fresh fruit juice in the morning. Best pick- strawberry juice!
Apply few drops of warm olive/coconut/apricot/almond oil on face, soles and navel at bedtime for great detox!

Cholinergic Urticaria is a medical term used to describe a subcategory of physical urticaria (hives). It is characterized by a hypersensitive response in the skin as a result of the body increasing in temperature (passively or actively), or the precipitating release of sweat. Individuals with this physical heat hives condition often ask, “Why do I itch when I get hot or exercise?” This is the most common symptom experienced by sufferers. Individuals may experience a cholinergic urticaria reaction in response to any activity that increases overall body temperature (or causes a sweat release). Some examples include the following: Taking a hot shower or bath Eating spicy foods Exercising or doing physical activities that increase body temperature Stress or anxiety Emotional responses (sadness, anxiety, anger, laughter) Transitioning from a cool environment to a hotter environment without allowing the body time to slowly acclimate to the temperature difference (such as walking from a cold room to a hot room). Cholinergic Urticaria Treatments There is no cure for Cholinergic urticaria, and treatment options are often limited. Some common treatments include taking antihistamines (such a Allegra, Zyrtec, or stronger ones), avoiding known triggers (such as hot weather, physical activity, and spicy foods), corticosteroids (only for extreme cases), anabolic steroids, UVB therapy, sweat/exercise therapy, diet changes (such as avoiding known trigger foods), and more. To view a more comprehensive list, visit our cholinergic urticaria treatment page. Cholinergic urticaria often changes, much like season allergies or other allergic conditions. Individuals may experience periods of heightened sensitivity, as well as periods of almost no reactions or very low sensitivity. This can sometimes be affected by seasonal weather, as well as other unknown factors. This condition may last for months, years, or may even go away and come back sporadically throughout one’s live. In one study, the average duration was approximately 7 years, although some people had this condition (on and off) for up to 30 years. Even though this condition may be long-lasting and highly variable, individuals suffering with this can often find treatment regimens that enable them to live a relatively high quality of life and go on to work, go to school, and engage in other activities. This is not considered a terminal disease, and it is not known to shorten life span, cause early death, or any other immediate dangers. The only exception is that in rare cases, people with a severe case of cholinergic urticaria may experience anaphylactic shock (severe swelling), which could be life threatening. This is very rare, and if this happens, please call a doctor or hospital immediately.
