Doctor my mom has lots of blemishes on her face. Please suggest me medication for it.
Blemishes can occur due to prolong sun exposure, picking on acne and also as a part of ageing. Kindly consult a dermatologist so that he or she examines your moms skin and prescribes a medication. Anything randomly given can give rashes on the skin. She can start using medicated sunscreen meanwhile.

I have a problem in my foot.in all season under foot surface dark and hard and skin from surface remove all time.
Hard skin under the foot is known as Keratoderma. It is due to various factors ,some times with itching and some times without itching. If it is associated with itching it is type of a allergy and you have to show it to dermatologist, if not itch then apply Xerina ointment two times in a day for one month. It will make your foot soft and smooth.

Actually, since last two weeks I have been noticing a little white patch on my skin which is lighted than my skin tone. I have also consulted a dermatologist but I am still worried about it. My doctor suggested me the candid cream and said there was nothing to worry about and it could be just a yeast infection on my skin or due to sunburn. Now my question is that, actually everyday I apply Multani matti on my face to keep my skin fresh. Can I apply the candid cream after using the face pack only on the affected areas? And also, using candid cream is right? Please provide me some quicker and fast effective tips to help with these patches. Please.

Hello lybrate-user I completely understand your concern. It's good that you are so aware about your skin. Firstly ,light patches can be due to many reasons. Fungal infection, vitiligo,eczema and many other causes. I need to see your photo in order to guide you correctly. You may start an online consult for that. Secondly there is no issue in applying Multani mitti as long as you are comfortable with it. You may apply candid cream after that. Use a good sunscreen with atleast 15 SPF to protect your skin. Take care :)

First. One needs to rule out any hormonal issues eg. PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease) by doing a regular blood test for the PCOD profile &/or an abdomino-pelvic ultrasound to rule out secreting ovarian cysts. Medicines' will only help if there is a hormonal imbalance. Next. If this is ruled out, go in for laser hair treatments' & will be about 90% effective .using either an Diode, IPL or Nd-Yag lasers' in that order of preference going by my clinical experiences. For all this, you will need to be 'assessed' in person by a dermatologist.

Many persons, especially young boys and girls are worried about dark spots on the face. However they tend to ignore food habits, managing stress and pollution exposures as well as facial care. I would say that a lot of material is available on net and by careful selection of herbal combos and credentials of advising doctor can bring them relief. However, a lot depends on individual skin nature and conditions but there is not much detour.

Tips to Cure Dark Spots on the Face (Its only external applications. For oral medicine (Safe Ayurveda formulae) you have to consult for added advantage and speedy normalization of skin.

Lemon Juice:
One of the most popular forms of home treatment due to its ease and quickness is lemon juice. Lemons can be bought locally at your nearest store or you could be lucky enough to grow them in your own garden. Lemons are rich with essential vitamin C that can help lighten dark spots.
Squeeze some fresh lemon juice on to a cotton ball before gently rubbing it directly on to the black spots. Allow it to dry on your skin before washing it off with water. Continue to apply lemon juice to the skin for at least two weeks until you eventually see the dark spots fade.
Buttermilk:
Buttermilk is a great product that can help defeat black circles. Similar to lemon juice, it also helps to gently fade any red blemishes and also black spots.
Take just four teaspoons of buttermilk while adding two teaspoons of tomato juice into a bowl.
Mix the two ingredients together before applying the mixture onto your skin. After 15 minutes, wash off the ingredients.
Oats:
Oatmeal powder is ideal for exfoliating the skin. This is why many individuals choose to apply an oatmeal mask onto their face in order to remove any dead skin and also any unwanted black spots.
Simply grind half a cup of oats before add four tablespoons of lemon juice in order to make a thick paste. Scrub the paste on to your skin and allow it to dry. Once dry, gently wash off the paste using warm water. It?s recommended to perform this treatment up to twice a week
