3 Common Skin Problems in Teenagers

3 Common Skin Problems in Teenagers

Problems with the skin during the teenage years are very common. Although skin issues can be really stressful, the right skin care treatment can help in controlling the problems you may face during this time. Here are some of the skin issues that you may face at this stage of life and ways to prevent them:

Oily Skin: Oily skin is a very common occurrence during teenage years. To a certain extent, oily skin may be due to genetics but for some, it may be due to hormonal changes that cause excess oil to be produced on the skin surface. In order to not inflame the skin further, individuals with oily skin shouldn't overly scrub their skin as well as not use harsh cleansers to clean the face. More importantly, when you do use a cleanser on your face, you should only do so two times a day. If you go overboard, it would only do more harm than good.

Acne: Whether it is blackheads, whiteheads or spots filled with pus, acne affects about 80% of teenagers at some point in their lives. Teenagers are more prone to this problem because the hormone levels during this time are especially high, resulting in an increase in the magnitude of sebaceous glands and the oil that is produced. When too much oil is produced, this, along with dead skin cells block, the follicles, giving rise to acne. There are certain ways in which you can prevent it from occurring, such as always having a bath after any strenuous activity, not picking or touching the problem areas and washing acne-prone spots only two times a day.

Excessive Sweating: Excessive sweating is another major cause of concern for teenagers. The problem can be due to two different conditions - stress or hyperhidrosis (a condition wherein you sweat excessively on a daily basis). Wearing clothes made from cotton, using antiperspirants as well as avoiding drinks and foods that may cause episodes of excessive sweating are some of the ways in which you can keep the problem in control.

Formaule feed is tailor made for small babies where as cow milk is for calves. It is heavy for baby to digest. Stay with formulae feed ie lactogen.

After evry feed you must clean her teeth. You can encourage her to imitate you while brushing yourself and she will try to follow you. Unless cleaning is done there is no way or medicines to clean teeth. You give logical syrup 5 ml once daily as calcium supplement, keep in touch personally for regular guidance on any health issue.

3 months is too short a period to get worried. You keep on trying and if both of you are normal you will conceive even if a bit late

Please correlate clicinally and evaluate for iron deficiency anemia and hemoglobin disorder. That time hemoglobin level is 6.5% and that time required blood transfusion and that time HB% was-12.20%.

Above report is more in favor of Iron/ multi nutritional deficiency anemia. Blood transfusion increases Hb temporarily. Intermittent fall of Hb may be due to interrupted treatment and lack of nutritional diet as indicated by constant wt at 9 kg. To improve his wt and normalize Hb, give him Iron, B Complex, Vit C and other micro nutrients and continue at least for about 3 months after Hb comes to normal, add oil/ ghee in his nutritious diet for wt gain.

My baby is going to be 3 month old soon. And I have to go back to work. Can I start solid or weaning food for her as I don't want to give her formula milk. I can manage to breastfeed her only once or twice.

Till 6 months not advisable to go towards semisolid feed. For working mother advisable to go for formula feeds or top milk in form of cow milk with added sugar. Word of caution here is, no feed is superior than breast feeds in first 6 months of age of an infant.

My son says that his right side nipple is paining while sleeping. What may be the reason? He has no fever, no swelling any where in body. Nothing. Is there any serious issue?

DNB (Pediatrics), MBBS
Pediatrician, Mohali
Hi, thanks for contacting me on lybrate. At his age, nipple pain is generally a mild problem that does not need specific treatment. If it persists, a pediatric evaluation for any trauma, inflammation etc, may be done. However, in most cases, this will disappear after some time. Warm fomentation and reassurance will generally help in a majority of cases. Warm regards.

It is rather unusual for such tiny infants to get pin worms. It will be better if the child is reviewed first in the clinic as the cause of itching could be something else. Only then any medication can be given to such babies.

There is no medication to increase height. It's as per your parents height. Unless you have some hormonal problem. Size of breast does not increase after the pubertal phase which you already have acc to your history. It increases further during lactational phase. Control your dietary habits. And do exercises to tone your body and muscles.

Hello dr. My baby is of 5 months old she passes urine in lemon yellow color she makes sound while passing urine why is that so?

Pediatrician, Pune
Does she take enough breast feeds, how frequently does she pass urine, a little amount of plain water - 2-3 cups in a day in warm weather, can make the change, the more fluids she has along with breast milk, the urine should become lighter, how is the stream of urine, little sound while passing urine is ok, if she is not crying while passing urine and there is no local redness

Hello, if breathing difficulty is only in sleep position there might be another concern like reflux but still try nasal saline drops for nose when in lying position, give steam inhalation for 5-10 min before sleep but no vicks please. Also, as it is 10 days is long period so see your paediatrician to rule out other concerns like reflux/infection. Take care.

Hi, My 7 year old girl is so attached to us that she sleeps right in the middle of us and always puts us to sleep before she does. No matter what she doesn't want to sleep separately. And you know what. Also is this the right time to talk to her about sex and how much info should be given to her, considering some info could make kids curious and try to know more by experimenting and exploring that is way too unsafe. Please advise. Regards.

BHMS

Try to avoid speaking or doing much about sex in front of her and also slowly make her to get acquainted to sleep separately as this generation is too inquisitive to learn things easily especially with things like these which we try to hide out from them. Don't worry but make her to learn to sleep separately as she is 7 now.
