I have used all of medicines to remove my pimples and for these pimples my forehead are full of pimples mark so please tell me how I can rid of this marks and these pimples.
Here is cause,symptoms and treatments of Pigmentation
Hi, I am Dr. Deepa Kanchanl practicing Dermatologist and Cosmetologist from Mumbai since the last sixteen years. Today I would like to talk on an important topic which is of aesthetic importance to a lot many people that is Pigmentation. Pigmentation on the skin can come because of excessive production of melanin by the cells of the skin. Normally there is increase in production of melanin by stimulation of the cells by ultraviolet rays coming from sunlight or other sources. This can lead to tanning that is generalised increase in the pigmentation or it can be patchy skin but other than ultraviolet rays there can be other reasons for increase in pigmentation like deposition of certain proteins under the skin, drug reaction or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, post burns or chemical injuries, acne or any other liaison appearing on the skin.
So, when you want to get rid of pigmentation finding of the most appropriate cream depending upon the cause is very important. Generally, it is seen that people end up using creams suggested by their friends or somebody who have used it and have got good results but they don’t know what are the contents and how each cream acts and what are the side effects and eventually end up using the cream in excessive quantity for a long period of time. This can lead to a lot of side effects like increase of hair on the skin or the thinning or redness of skin, pimples or paradoxically increase in the pigmentation on the skin, this is known an Ochronosis which occurs because of deposition of the same depigmenting cream underneath the skin this can be very difficult to treat or rather impossible to treat.
So it is my suggestion that whenever you want to get rid of pigmentation it is important to analyse the cause of it and how the cause can be removed, what protection can be taken so that there is no further increase in the pigmentation and have a realistic expectation as to how pigmentation can go away as people generally are looking for a quick fix reply as to how this can disappear completely and forever without coming back again. People are not bothered about protection, whereas protection is the key in pigmentation, so protection from the UV rays by application of sunscreen or protection with a cloth or avoidance of sunlight in the peak sun hours is very important. How to use the sunscreen, how much quantity and for what duration to be applied? All these play a very important role.
So protect more than curing for further information you can contact on lybrate.com. Thank you.

Lipoma can be clearly understood as that fat tumour – like protrusion on your hands, which disappears when we put a finger on it. This is a very benign tumour that occurs in the body. It is caused due to the accumulation of fat cells. In most cases, these tumours are painless, although, these might be pain causing too.
Furthermore, the most common parts of the body where this growth develops are the hands, shoulders, neck and upper limbs. Lipoma can be treated with the help of homeopathic medicines. In case you find a lipoma growth anywhere in your body, the best option is to seek professional help. Some of the common homeopathic treatments that can cure lipoma are:
Calcarea Carb: This is the best medicine to treat lipoma in those who are overweight. A few symptoms and tests need to be performed on the patient before administering this medicine. The three parameters which are assessed before prescribing this medicine are excessive sweating through the head, sensitivity to cold air and special eating habits like craving for a particular kind of food. Apart from these three parameters, which are the main ones to be checked, it is also seen if the patient suffers from constipation and acidity. If these symptoms match with that of the patient, then Calcarea Carb is prescribed for treating lipomas.
Sulphur: The next in line to treat lipoma would be sulphur. In fact, sulphur and Calcarea Carb are mostly at par with each other. However, it remains to be seen which medicine suits who depending on the constitutional make of the person. Those patients with high intake of sweets in their diet, excessive sweating, sensitivity towards heat and dislike towards bathing are the best candidates for administering Sulphur for treating lipoma.
Belladonna: Though lipoma is usually painless, at times it can be painful too. In such situations, the pain is aggravated on touching the lump. Belladonna not only helps in subsiding the pain but also in dissolving the lump fully.
Thuja: This helps in dissolving any fatty lumps developing anywhere in the body. In case the patient suffers from high cholesterol, then this is the best medicine to be administered.
Lipoma is a very common condition, which develops in people due to the formation of a fatty lump. It is a condition which needs to be treated immediately, but with effective treatments, it can completely disappear.
My aunt has dark circles by birth. Now my siblings are also getting dark circles? Medicines prescribed by dermatologists are useless. Please mention some homeopathic treatment of it?
A glowing and clear skin is something that we all aspire to have. Irrespective of age, gender or profession, having a skin free of acne, black heads, white heads and marks is something that is a welcome sight, for your own self as well as others who see you. A lot of people are blessed with impeccabbly flawless skin but they are many others who may have to go through treatments or medications to make sure that they are able to achieve the look that they desire the most.
As the year's pass, they tend to take a toll on our body as well as our skin. One of the most prominent areas, where the skin starts showing signs of aging is our face. We have many ways with which we can manage to stop this wear and tear and look younger for longer. One of these methods is the use of chemical peels.
How it works:
Chemical peels are basically very light acids which are formulated into a peel with help of other chemicals. It works by dissolving the dead cells of the topmost layer of the skin. This procedure reveals a new layer of skin, which is visibly brighter and younger. After the application of the peel, a neutralizer is applied to cease the action of peel. Different skin types and skin issues may require varied concentrations of and type of chemical peel and only an expert in the field may be able to decide the exact need.
Since, the skin may become a bit sensitive after the treatment, it is essential that anyone who undergoes peeling treatment ensures following precautions:
The skin may become sensitive to soap, which is why washing the skin with soap needs to be avoided for 24 hours or as instructed by the specialist.
If there is mild redness of the skin, a cold compress can be used to ease the irritation. However, if the irritation or redness is excessive, it needs to be brought to notice of the doctor.
Bleaching, waxing, facials or other such treatments should be avoided for at least a week or as suggested by the dermatologist.
It is also advisable to avoid heavy makeup for a short period of time after the chemical peel is carried out so that the skin gets enough time to recover itself.
Chemical peeling has several advantages:
It is a safe an effective procedure with minimal complications.
It is inexpensive and totally affordable.
It can be easily combined with other modalities like micro-needling and microdermabrasion.
Many peels can be done as a lunch-time procedure and patient can resume work immediately.
With advent of wide variety of peeling agents, a large number of problems can be addressed and peels can be customized according to needs of the patients. With the best medically approved cosmetic practices at your disposal, you may have to look no further for the glowing and radiant skin
5 Ways to prevent skin conditions in athletes
Given their nature of work, athletes are at an increased risk of acquiring skin infections. These infections can lead to serious consequences if they are left untreated.
Here are 5 ways in which skin conditions in athletes can be prevented.
1. Keeping the bruises clean and covered - It is important for you to keep the cuts and scrapes clean as well as covered with bandages until they heal because such openings in the skin weaken its defence against germs and increase the possibility of infections.
2. Taking care of the blisters - Make sure that you prevent blisters as much as you can because they make your skin susceptible to infections. Use gels, sprays, ice pads etc. and try to avoid getting sunburnt to prevent dangerous skin conditions.
3. Be mindful of what you wear - It is important for athletes to wear moisture-wicking clothes because sweat, if not made to dry, can lead to growth of germs that can cause a number of skin diseases and infections. Also, not wearing foot wear outside the field can lead to infections on the feet.
4. Maintaining good hygiene - Take a shower after every practice session and game using an antimicrobial soap. Besides, use a clean towel and avoid sharing your personal care items like razor, soap etc. with other athletes. This is extremely important in order to reduce the risk of bacterial infection.
5. Disinfect all your equipment and go for skin checkups - Make sure that you disinfect all your equipment like the protective gear, gloves, socks etc. after every use. Also, get regular skin checkups done, especially if you are associated with high-risk sports like wrestling, boxing etc. There is an increased possibility of skin injuries, sores, swelling etc. in athletes associated with such sports, which exposes them to a greater risk of skin conditions. So, disinfection and clinical checkups on a regular basis become all the more important for them. Ensure that you never use sandpaper or bleach simply to pass a skin check up. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.
