Hii I am a 20 yrs. Old girl. Day before yesterday I was having a pimple on my forehead and so I applied himalaya neem facewash in night and left it for whole night. When I woke up yesterday morning I found that the part around the pimple got red and it was burning from inside. Then I consulted to a doctor on doc prime. She prescribed me silver nitrate gel 0.2% w/w (silverex) and allegra tablet. I applied it yesterday twice on the affected area. Then the affected area got darker in colour but the burning from inside is less. So what should I do? Should I apply it or change it?

Darkening of the spot could be due to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and may decrease over time but there are some precautions you should take and other topical creams can help to lighten the darkened area. Moreover you may benefit from antiacne treatment depending upon how many pimples and how frequently you are having these.

Sir I had a fall and developed a very slight scrape in my face not even a little blood came. But it turned black and then scalp was formed. Once scalp went my doctor asked me me to use silver nitrate gel and I applied. The the scrpae turned to white slowly towards skin color. But all of a sudden it again started to turn black. I believe this was due to exposing to sunlight. Now my doctor gave novalate n cream to be applied with few drops of oil. It's been one month from my fall. I am worried will it cause black scar in my face. Is the cream which I am using is ok or should I use some other ointment to avoid the scar. Please help me.

This gel is meant for treatment of infection and not for treatment of infertility. So it will not help for pregnancy.
