Hello Sirs and Maams, I have two ugly lines of black patches on both sides of my face on the sides of my nose where my cheeks fold. I have them since childhood and even after doing facial scrubbing it does not fade. Is there any way to remove it? Besides, the portion of my face where beard grows it is very dark complexioned and looks ugly whereas other parts are fair and glowing. Is there any solution to this problem?

Apply almond oil on your face and massage for 3-5 min at night. By doing above thing you will get good result.

Hi thanks for your query. I would suggest that you must visit a dermatologist and get skin scrapping done for microscopy of fungal elements and culture sensitivity for aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and fungal infections. Based on the reports you must get the treatment. You will require topical and systemic antifungal according to lesion for varying duration. Keep the area clean and dry and avoid submerging in water for long duration.

My pimples are cured and became black marks in my face. I tried using a cream called skin lite. But still I'm facing this marks issue. Can you please suggest some tips to reduce this.

My intestine is sore. Because I can feel pain and it is little out in my anus and it's almost 3 days now that I can't poop. I don't know if it's OK that my intestine is coming out in my anus. And I don't know the cause why I feel pain. My intestine I feel that it's little out when I was in college but I never tried to see a doctor because I don't feel any abnormal or pain but now I'm kind of worried cause of the pain and I can't poop. Hope you could help me. Thanks.

Hello LENIE I guess you are suffering with hemorrhoids. The symptoms match with your described findings. I suggest you to take high fibre diet, avoid hot and spicy foods. Start taking sitz bath for 10-15 minutes for 3-4 times a day. Don't be afraid to get yourself examined through a surgeon. A detailed history and clinical examination will help to properly identify the diagnosis and thereby the treatment. Hope this helps. Thanks.

In order to enhance your skin you need to take care of your skin from outside. You may use a cream or moisturizer that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid's (AHA's) like glycolic acid, lactic acid etc. AHA's exfoliate superficial dead skin cells and renew it with newer younger cells. Continued use of AHA's keeps skin in a state of continued renewal. This renewed skin is healthier, lighter and brighter. You may also opt for a few sessions of chemical peeling, particularly glycolic peel, from nearest approachable dermatologist. Glycolic peel utilizes a higher concentration of glycolic acid as compared to that present in creams/ moisturizers. The concentration that is available in peels is 20%, 35% 50% and 70%. Whereas creams contain just 6%, 8% or 10% of glycolic acid. I also suggest you to use a broad spectrum sunscreen, throughout the day. It should have both UVA as well as UV B coverage. Regular use of broad spectrum sunscreen would prevent tanning and also delay skin ageing i.e appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some sunscreens are also fortified with vitamin C which has skin lightening as well as antiageing properties. Besides topical creams and chemical peeling sessions you may also take a few sessions of microdermabrasion to achieve the desired results. I suggest you to visit a dermatologist in your vicinity for more details and the needful. Regards.
