Hi,

I am Dr. Kavita Mehndiratta, dermatologist in Faridabad. Today we will talk about one of the common skin problems is heat rash. Normally the children of various ages develop such kind of conditions. This is because of excessive sweating and the blockage of pores and the only solution is applying calamine lotion and giving antihistaminic to the patient. Otherwise, if you have severe heat rash, then consult your skin doctor. Another common problem is ringworm. The ringworm is not due to worm but it is called ringworm formation of ring-shaped lesions and mainly it is due to the fungal infection which is present on the skin. And keep yourself dry as much as possible because the fungal infection grows in during sweating. And the only treatment is to take antifungals and consult the skin doctors. Don't apply steroids in case of ringworm otherwise, that will increase the increase in the severity of the condition.

You will get temporary relief with that but steroid is not the option. Then another common skin condition is Chicken Pox Rash. In chickenpox, patient develops usually vesicular fluid-filled lesions and when these lesions fade away, they leave the rashes after that. But if the patient takes care of the lesions then it won't develop into the rashes. So, consult the doctor whenever you have chicken pox or apply simple calamine lotion and moisturizing creams so that you should not develop the rashes after that. Then we can say another condition is Eczema. Eczema is generally aggravating in the during the changing weather whenever the season is dry then the patient tries to develop these eczemas more commonly. The simple solution is to moisturize the lesions, moisturize the old lesions and if you develop new lesions, then take medications. Another problem in this season especially is itchy back.

The usually the kid's complaint of itchy back in winters as well as the changing weather. So, apply good medicated moisturizing cream in the itchy back that is very common disease and many patients used to develop in this kind of season. Then one of the common disease in children is Impetigo. And normally the fluid-filled lesions develop around the mouth, chest and then it can spread to all over the body. Mainly the hygiene should be maintained in such kind of lesions and you should wash kids' hands properly and maintain the hygiene and apply the antibiotic cream over these lesions. Do not apply steroid over any lesion. And one of another disease we can talk about is contact dermatitis.

These days the usually the patients come with contact dermatitis due to dyes, due to any food. So, dyes are the dyes contain chemicals. So, these are the most common agents for the contact dermatitis in adults normally, adults of any age. So, apply them precautionary and if you develop such kind of lesions then take treatment properly and then leave that salt even. And in case if you develop contact dermatitis then apply then leave that food because the sometimes some food may contain preservatives. I hope you found this video useful for you and if you found any problem and you want to consult me then you can consult me at my clinic in Faridabad and or at the lybrate.com.

Thank you!

4 Causes Of Acne And Its Treatment!

4 Causes Of Acne And Its Treatment!

Acne is a teenager's biggest worry. However, it can occur at any age. Acne or acne vulgaris occurs when oil, dead skin or bacteria block the pores on your skin. Though it is not dangerous, acne can be embarrassing and can leave scars on your skin. Severe acne can also be quite painful. Pimples in the form of blackheads and whiteheads are the main symptoms of acne. These can usually be seen on the face, back, chest, shoulders and neck of acne patients. Apart from these, painful lumps under the surface of the skin and red raised bumps can also be found on the skin of acne patients. 

Acne can be triggered by a number of factors. Here are some of the common triggers for acne:

  1. Stress: The severity of acne can be correlated to the levels of stress a person is facing. While scientists are yet to figure the exact relationship between stress and acne; it is known that the cells that produce sebum or oil also act as stress receptors. Studies suggest that when a person is under stress, these cells produce excessive sebum that clogs pores on the skin leading to pimples. 
  2. Hormones: Hormones play an important role in skin health especially when it comes to women. Androgens or the male hormones present in both men and women, trigger acne by over stimulating the oil glands. Women may also see an increase in pimples during menstruation. This is due to the fluctuating levels of progesterone that stimulate the production of sebum. 
  3. Genetics: If one or both parents have acne, their children have high chances of suffering from it as well. Genes influence the sensitivity of your skin towards hormones such as androgens and progesterone that trigger acne. They also influence the production of anti inflammatory chemicals in the skin and skin's response to bacteria. 
  4. Medication: Acne is one of the side effects to a few types of medication such as corticosteroids and anticonvulsants. However, this is not seen very often. On the other hand, drugs that contain hormones such as androgenic steroids almost always cause an acne breakout. 

Treatment for acne depends on the severity of the condition and its persistence. Mild cases can be easily treated with over the counter medication, but if your acne is severe and not affected by these medications, it best to consult a dermatologist. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Healthy Skin - 9 Habits To Maintain It!

Healthy Skin - 9 Habits To Maintain It!

Healthy skin is a sign of overall good health and vitality. Skin problem is one of the most persistent problems encountered by people. It is imperative therefore, that you take care of your skin to avoid skin disorders. Various factors, such as pollution, smoking, eating processed food and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to unhealthy skin.

There are certain habits, which can be followed by you on a regular basis to restore the health of your skin. Some of them are:

  1. Exercise regularly: Exercising on a regular basis improves your skin health as it increases blood circulation in the body. Consequently, it helps in delivering various nutrients to the skin, which in turn defers aging. Daily exercises also prevent the onset of various skin disorders.
  2. Keeping it clean: You should keep your skin clean to prevent the buildup of dirt. This prevents clogging of the pores and enables the skin to breathe. 
  3. Intake of vitamin C in various forms: Vitamin C is used in the collagen production process by amino acids. One of the most convenient ways of maintaining the glow of your skin is to introduce fruits and vegetables which are rich in vitamin C. 
  4. Quit smokingThe pursuit of healthy skin necessitates immediate disengagement with smoking. This fatal habit should be avoided at all cost, as it triggers and facilitates the aging process. It also aggravates the production of free radicals in the skin which in turn adversely affects the skin.
  5. Less exposure to the sun: Exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun may damage the collagen structure of the skin. It also causes tanning and increases your chance of developing skin cancer.
  6. Avoid sweet food: Consumption of sweets may lead to the formation of various substances, which threaten to damage the collagen structure and subsequently aggravates the aging process.
  7. Antioxidants: Fruits and leafy vegetables are generally packed with antioxidants. A potential damage of the skin can be deterred by including them in the diet
  8. Massage: Skin massages facilitate blood circulation on the skin and eradicates the damaging effect of the free radicals. This ensures that you have healthy and refreshed skin.
  9. Plant proteins: The level of oestrogen falls drastically in women after menopause, leading to the development of wrinkles.Foods, such as soy, nuts and beans minimise this effect by replenishing the level of oestrogen in the body and therefore must be incorporated in the diet.
