I am having a lot of black heads and i am 18 years old boy what should I do to prevent them.
Blackheads are typically caused by the overproduction of oil, which tends to occur when a person reaches puberty. Clean your face with a good cleanser, ideally, one for oily skin, such as a salicylic acid cleanser. Do not wash the affected area more than twice a day, otherwise you might irritate the skin and make symptoms worse. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Sebaceous Cysts - Common Causes Behind it

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Gurgaon
Sebaceous Cysts - Common Causes Behind it

Sebaceous cysts are also called as epidermoid cysts are characterized by the formation of small bumps beneath the skin, which are, however, noncancerous and can appear anywhere on the neck or face. Usually arising from sebaceous glands, sebaceous cysts are often harmless and take a long time to grow and develop. They normally do not cause any severe problems as such, but if they tend to be bothersome and painful, then you consult a doctor for treatment and diagnosis.

Signs and symptoms of sebaceous cysts include:

  1. Small, round bumps found underneath the skin.
  2. Formation of a thick, yellow, pungent-smelling material that may or may not leak from the cysts.
  3. Formation of small blackheads clogging the opening of the cyst.
  4. When inflamed, the area turns reddish in color and may swell up.

Causes behind it
Sebaceous cysts develop when the sebaceous glands or ducts are either damaged or clogged. Sebaceous glands generally secrete keratin and sebum, oils which are responsible for coating the hair and skin. Whenever they get blocked, these fluids accumulate, resulting in the formation of cysts. Whenever they get damaged, the cysts burst open and keratin oozes out as a thick and yellow fluid. Blockage or damage can occur because of any of the following reasons:

  1. Cuts, scratches and surgical wounds.
  2. Skin conditions like acne.
  3. Genetic problems like Garner's syndrome.
  4. Cell damage because of surgery.
  5. A deformed gland or duct.

A few factors which may make you more vulnerable to growing sebaceous cysts:

  1. If you have a history of acne.
  2. If you receive injuries to the skin.
  3. If you are past the age of puberty.
  4. If you have rare genetic disorders.

If the cysts trouble or bother you in any way, you should consider receiving treatment as they can cause further problems in the near future. These may include:

  1. Boil-like infections.
  2. Genital discomforts such as problems in urinating.
  3. Even when it is not infected, a cyst can get inflamed causing a lot of pain and uneasiness.
  4. Sebaceous cysts can, in extremely rare cases, lead to skin cancer.

Hello , Your oil glands produce too much oil, it might as well cause acne. Before that happens, -take bath twice a day, morning and then in night before sleeping. -use a non moisturising normal soap (not dove or creamy soap) and also use loofa to clean unnecessary sebum from your skin. -do not rub or scrub too much, do it softly. -sleep under a fan/AC or cooler to avoid sweating in the night. -wear washed clothes and change clothes before sleeping. This should help you. Take care.

Dandruff & Oiling

MBBS, Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL), DNB (Dermatology), MNAMS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Dandruff & Oiling

Dandruff is not something that you can catch from someone else. It is an embarrassing condition but also a major cause for hairfall and hair weakening. It is estimated to affect as many as one in five individuals in india. You're said to suffer from the problem of dandruff when the skin renewal cycle of your scalp accelerates all of a sudden. This brings about the development of patches of dead skin on your scalp surface and the resultant dry, skin flakes called dandruff.

The causes of this very common problem can be:

  • Having dry skin can also cause dandruff to develop, which are less oily and smaller in nature.
  • Even irritated oily skin, more commonly known as seborrheic dermatitis can cause you to suffer from these white skin flakes. The problem can be easily identified by its distinguishing yellow or white flakes over the red greasy skin surface.
  • Not shampooing your hair regularly can cause skin cells and oils to build up in the scalp leading to the outbreak of dandruff.
  • Sensitivity to certain hair care products and the presence of Malassezia (a type of fungus) are other causes that can lead to dandruff problems.

Oiling your hair is the most effective measure that you can take against this scalp problem. While the ideal time to do this is at night so that you can wash it off the next morning, one should also remember that hair oil shouldn't be left on the hair for over 24 hours. Additionally, dry scalp makes it very easy for dandruff to develop as the oil-secreting glands found in the scalp's epidermal layers produce low or no natural oil. Application of oil helps in keeping the scalp nourished as well as enables glands to produce oil. But leaving it on for more than the recommended hours can intensify your dandruff problem and further accelerate the hair fall process.

What is ketosis?

CCP, MBA, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
What is ketosis?
Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn't have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones. If you're healthy and eating a balanced diet, your body controls how much fat it burns, and you don't normally make or use ketones. But when you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy. It can also happen after exercising for a long time and during pregnancy. For people with uncontrolled diabetes, ketosis is a sign of not using enough insulin. Ketosis can become dangerous when ketones build up. High levels lead to dehydration and change the chemical balance of your blood.
