Darier's Disease: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

MD - Dermatology, MBBS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Darier's Disease: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Darier's disease is a skin disorder. It is usually chronic in nature and an inherited condition. This disease is not contagious and affects the surface cells of your skin. Generally, it starts affecting a person during adolescence. In this condition, the skin cells are not properly bound together and as a result, blisters may form on the surface of the skin, resulting in the skin becoming scaly in appearance. However, Darier's disease is not caused due to any kind of allergic reaction.

The following causes can be responsible for Darier's disease:

  1. Calcium deficiency affects desmosomes (skin structure which help the surface cells of the skin to stick together), which can cause Darier's disease.
  2. Exposure to harmful rays of the sun can worsen your condition
  3. Perspiration may aggravate Darier's disease
  4. Darier's disease is hereditary in nature

Some of the most common symptoms of Darier's disease include:

  1. Itching
  2. Rashes may appear on the face, neck, back and chest region
  3. Your skin may smell pungent
  4. Viral and bacterial infection may occur
  5. Your skin tends to become greasy
  6. Warts may develop on the hands
  7. Discoloration of the nails is common

Darier's disease can be treated by the following treatment procedures:

  1. Antibiotic ointment and topical creams (corticosteroids or retinol) can help you to get rid of the itching sensation.
  2. Laser treatments can prove to be helpful in certain cases.
  3. Dermabrasion can be considered as a treatment option. It removes the affected surface layer of the skin.
  4. Your doctor may also prescribe oral medications containing retinoid (compounds having similar effects to those of vitamin A).

Being a homoeopath,I will suggest you a natural way to glow your lips along with a lip balm. Lemon, Sugar Lip Scrub: In a small bowl, mix in 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice and coconut oil. Add in and stir thoroughly 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar, a bit at a time to make thick paste of uniform consistency. If needed, you can add in more sugar. After mixing it well, you can transfer the scrub into a suitable storage container. It can be safely kept in fridge for about one week.Apply a little bit of the scrub to your lips, and scrub it in circular motion. To effectively exfoliate your lips, use a small toothbrush. Rinse your lips with warm water, and apply a LIP balm( BAKSON) on your choice.

Hello, Firstly start taking a full nutritious diet . A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. A good diet must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health.And what ever we are eating that reflects on our body and skin. 1. Homoeopathic medicine for fair skin is Berberis Aquafolium mother tincture.take 5 drops of it mix with water , twice a day. 2. Apply this tincture in diluted form on your face with cotton once a day . 3. wash your face with besan and curd , mix a pinch of turmeric also. 5. Apply rose water to your face at night. 6. Apply cucumber juice+ lemon juice+ tomato juice on your face. 7.Apply Multani mitti pack on the face,wash it off after it dries.

Skin texture and elasticity can be improved by daily exercise, yoga and pranayam. Secondly, taking care of your skin is also important - Use Tea Tree face wash and Toner twice daily. Use AHA Glow face wash once in a day. 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 for 5 minutes 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. At Night - Apply Yugard cream alternatively during bedtime.

Hello. Follow these steps:- 1. Firstly avoid too much spices in your diet. Eat simple food. Too much spices also disturb body. 2. Drink plenty of water. Try to keep body hydrated because water deficiency leads to unhealthy skin. Water deficiency also leads dry skin which lead to itching. 3. Use mild soap. Prefer milk or cream containing soap. 4. Apply good body lotion after bathing. You can apply coconut oil also. 5. Avoid scratching of body. 6. You can take bath with curd twice a week. Apply curd on body and let it for 10 mins. Then rinse off with plain water. Then apply body lotion. It will also give tou some relief. All these will help you. Good luck.

Dark circles are a common problem but the cause for its occurrence has to be determined. Most of the times, it's genetic that is it runs in the family. But inadequate sleep, nutritional deficiency or working on laptop for long hours can also cause this. Please get your hemoglobin checked. Creams can be tried, which are specially made for treating pigmentation on this area. Chemical peels are also another option. Please use a sunscreen. You can consult me for detailed prescription using private chat option on Lybrate. I can tell all other precaution to be taken.
