For temporary relief of itching, try these self-care measures: use a high-quality moisturizing cream on your skin. Apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area as prescribed by me avoid scratching whenever possible. Apply cool, wet compresses. Take a lukewarm bath. Wear smooth-textured, loose cotton clothing. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan which will cure your itching problem.

* first apply sunscreen on your body, use sunscreen with spf 15. It will make your skin protect more times. * cover the exposed partsof skin like hands, neck and face while going in the sunlight. *apply sandalwood powder (chandan) mixed in rose water to the parts exposed in sunlight in the evening for 10-15 minutes. It will make your skin recover from the damage from sunlight. *you can apply calamine lotion to hands and face once a day. It will recover your skin from redness and irritation. * apply fullers earth (multani mitti) mixed in cold water and apply to the hands. It will recover fastly from the redness and make your skin normal fastly.

Ive a first degree burn I think, it dosent pain at all unless scrubbed. This part had become kind of darker in colour and I think it has lightened enough too, it all happened around 10 days ago and it darkened and lightened in that much time. Now its still kind of dark and it isn't noticeable to others but is to me. What home remedies do I do for it (im applying patanjali aloe vera)

Melasma - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

MBBS, P. G. Diploma in Dermatology Venerology & Leprosy (D. D. V. L )
Dermatologist, Moga
Melasma - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Melasma is a skin condition which causes discoloration and dark patches on your skin. It is more common in women than men. It is also called the ‘mask of pregnancy’ or chloasma when it is caused due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. These patches on the face are darker and symmetrical on both sides of your face. Areas of the body that are exposed to the sun for a prolonged period of time can also develop melasma. It doesn’t cause any physical complications, but it can give you an unsightly appearance.

What causes Melasma?

Doctors and researchers are still not sure what causes melasma although studies have shown that progesterone and estrogen levels tend to affect your skin leading to melasma. Some of the causes of melasma could be-

  1. Pregnancy
  2. Starting or stopping birth control pills
  3. Hormonal changes caused by underlying physical causes.
  4. Thyroid diseases
  5. Stress
  6. Prolonged exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun can also affect skin pigments (melanocytes) resulting in melasma

Symptoms of Melasma:

Brownish patches on the forehead, cheeks, chin and bridge of the nose are signs of melasma.

Treatment for Melasma:

In pregnancy, melasma usually fades on its own after you have delivered your baby.

  1. Avoid consuming birth control pills or change the medication for a change in composition of the drugs. More often than not, it’s the composition of a pill that causes melasma rather than birth control pills in general.
  2. Hydroquinone is an ointment which can be applied on the skin. This lightens the dark patches on your skin caused due to melasma.
  3. Corticosteroids and tretinoin – This medication is generally prescribed by a dermatologist to lighten the patches caused by melasma. This should be taken under a doctor’s prescription.
  4. Topical skin medicines – Medications which contain kojic acid or azelaic acid can also help reduce the brownish patches on your skin.
  5. Procedures – If medicines and creams don’t get rid of the patches, procedures such as dermabrasion, microdermabrasion and chemical peel procedures are advised. These procedures should be done under a certified dermatologist. This also prevents melasma from re-occurring in the future.

I have skin problem. At my face dark spots. Thats generated by pimples on my face.

I have skin problem. At my face dark spots. Thats generated by pimples on my face.
A quick and easy solution can be found in your kitchen or your nearest grocery store — lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 1. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 2. 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.

Hi I am 25 year old boy! my face full pimples how remove it any doctor in kerala?

Hi I am 25 year old boy! my face full pimples how remove it any doctor in kerala?
Acne can be treated easily with facewash, tablets and creams. Some people have more oilyness on the face which results in breakouts. After completing treatment for controlling the active breakouts, tablets can be stopped and creams need to be continued to prevent recurrence. Diet and lifestyle modifications are also important. Please don't do any self treatment such as over the counter Steroid creams. Don't burst the pimples with your fingers as it can result in ugly scars. The marks left behind after the pimples heal can also be treated. Please call me or send your photos through online consult option for detailed prescription and diet advice.
