I am having so many blackheads. How can I remove it permanently.

Dermatologist,
I am having so many blackheads. How can I remove it permanently.
You have to understand that pimples & black heads are basically infections in your skin pores (glands) in which sweat is forming. If you want complete cure of pimples you have to be infection free, as skin have very little blood supply, so take time to remove infections.For further assistance you can concern me privately.Please upload its photo.

I have a lots of black spots on my back. So what I should do to remove them?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath,
I have a lots of black spots on my back. So what I should do to remove them?
Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion Lemon Juice A quick and easy solution is lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. 1. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 2. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 3. Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey. You can also use lime juice to get rid of black spots, applying it in the same manner as described above. 2. Buttermilk Buttermilk is also beneficial in getting rid of dark spots. Like lemon juice, it also helps fade blemishes and black spots but without causing burning sensation. 1. Take four teaspoons of buttermilk. 2. Add two teaspoons of fresh tomato juice. 3. Mix the two ingredients (both have excellent bleaching properties) and then apply. 4. Wash it off after 15 minutes. The lactic acid in milk too, will gradually reduce skin pigmentation, and brighten and tone your overall skin complexion. So, if you do not have buttermilk, simply apply soak a cotton ball in milk and dab it directly on your spots. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wash it off Put milk on a cotton ball and dab it directly on your spots. Repeat this procedure twice daily for four to five weeks. You can also prepare a solution by mixing milk and honey and apply the solution to your dark spots, leaving it on for 10 minutes. 4. Oats Oatmeal powder is considered good for skin exfoliation. Hence, you can apply an oatmeal mask on your face and neck to remove dead skin and black spots. 1. Grind half a cup of rolled oats. 2. Add three to four tablespoons of lemon juice to make a paste. 3. Scrub it on your skin and wash it off with warm water when it dries. If it becomes messy, use a clean cloth soaked in warm water to remove the mask. Follow this treatment once or twice a week.

Hello, mix a few drops of lemon juice, one teaspoon of milk and two teaspoons of milk cream. Rub it on your under arms. Leave it on for a while before you take a shower. Do this once daily. Add enough milk cream to three to four tablespoons of gram flour to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on your face, hands and legs. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Do this once daily. Make a scrub with brown sugar and lemon and rub the dark areas with it. Gradually the darkness may become light.

My anal area burns while defecating in the morning is it because of the spicy food I eat? Please help me.

Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS, FICS
General Surgeon, Delhi
It could be because of an abrasion or cut in the anal mucosa.(ref. Anal fissure) spicy food aggravates such a condition. You must avoid constipation. Take plenty of fruits, fluids and fibre rich diet. Avoid non-veg, spicy and fried food. Take some laxative for few days at bed time. If the problem doesn't subside please consult some surgeon in person.

I am 35 years old and have few marks on my face and mole on my neck which seems to be growing is it cancerous. Can this mole be removed and how ?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda, Gulbarga
The overactive melanocytes in the body produce excess melanin, which gives rise to the mole? moles are usually caused due to excessive exposure to sunlight. The pigmentation of the skin cells propagate and spread to other areas of the body with over-exposure, leading to mole formation this is home remedies crush a clove of garlic to make a paste. Apply it on the mole and leave it overnight wrapped in a cotton cloth. Do this several times a day for 3 weeks for best results. Continual usage will provide you with quick results. Application of garlic paste can lead to scab formation. Do not disturb the scab formation with your hands. Any queries inform me.

Ayurveda,
What is cure about black spot under eye?
Dear I think you asked for dark circles if yes then here are tips for dark circles. If you have any other problem pls send snaps of affected area. 1. Boil two green tea bags in one-half cup of water for 10 minutes 2. Remove the tea bags and cool them in the refrigerator for half an hour. 3. Put the cold tea bags over your eyes for about 15 minutes. 4. Follow this remedy twice daily for at least 10 days to get positive results. 5. Lightly massage five or six drops of almond oil into the delicate skin under the eyes before going to bed. Leave it on overnight and wash it off with cold water the next morning. Follow this remedy daily until the dark circles disappear almost entirely. 6. Alternatively, mix five or six drops of almond oil with one tablespoon of raw honey. Apply it carefully on the skin under the eyes before going to bed. Leave it on overnight and then wash with lukewarm water the next morning. Repeat daily until you get the desired results.

Dark Spots - Laser Treatment for it!

MD - Dermatology, MBBS
Dermatologist, Faridabad
Dark Spots - Laser Treatment for it!

Some people are lucky enough to get a dark spot in the exact place as Cindy Crawford's mole. For the not so lucky others, the only way out is to get rid of them. Zap it, buzz it and eliminate it permanently. One way to do it is with lasers. Laser is a focused beam of light that has just one colour. When directed towards a problem area on the skin, it destroys that particular pigment or tissue without affecting the surrounding areas. Laser is being used to treat brown spots, scars, unwanted hair follicles, and for tattoo removal. Lasers are also used to treat and remove brown and red spots, liver spots, age spots, sun spots, broken capillaries, birthmarks and angiomas.

Most women continue to lead a normal life with dark spots until they start feeling conscious about it. If dark spots are leading you to run from the sun and undervalue your looks, get them treated easily with laser.

  • How to choose your practitioner?: When you consult a doctor for treatment, the only way to know if the doctor is right for you is by asking a lot of questions. Ask them about their training and their experience in treating particular types of spots. Another wise thing to check is the number of lasers the clinic has. Some small set ups have just one type of laser, which they recommend to all their patients. It is not just a question of experience and skill but also trust, which will ultimately help you choose the right doctor for your treatment. Also, you may be tempted to try a particular laser treatment since it worked wonders for your friend. Refrain from doing so.
  • Types of laser treatment: Your type of treatment will typically be chosen depending on the severity of your dark spots - how dark they are, at what depth in the dermis do they occur, what amount of area they cover, and how old they are. The dermis is six layers deep, so the depth where the spots start can determine what laser your face will need in order to get rid of them. If your spot is fairly new and is only on the top layer, the doctor will start with the first level. Because laser can reach deep down in the dermis, it works where other treatments don't. The treatment does involve a degree of pain and sore skin, but it can yield good results if done right.
  • Cost of laser treatment: Laser treatment will cost less than all the money you spend on over-the-counter skin lightening creams over years. It will also cost lesser than the amount of money you spend in buying high quality concealers over time. The cost will typically depend on the type of set up (spa or clinic) and the expertise of the practitioner.
