1. Keep yourself hydrated. 2. Get extra rest for some days till you feel more energetic. 3. Avoid watching television for long hours. Indulge in relaxing activities. 4. Avoid stress and too much physical exertion. 5. Take a nutritious diet with more protein items in homemade food like soya, sprouts, dals, paneer, milk, seasonal fruits. 6. Do light physical activity, meditation and yoga. 7. Take one good multivitamin tablet after food for 7 days.

3 Quickies To Soften Hard and Black Knees

M.D., D.P.H.,
Dermatologist, Secunderabad
3 Quickies To Soften Hard and Black Knees

Within the human body, there are certain parts, which are more prone to stress and friction than others. All joints are susceptible to this, but even within the joints, the knees are even more of a stress point.

The skin on the knees, as well as the bones, the joint and the cartilage, are highly susceptible to wear and tear. Due to frequent rubbing and friction, the skin can be put under much stress and thus, may cause skin conditions as well.

One of the most common skin conditions that many face is the hardening and darkening of the knees.

This may happen due to,

- Continuous friction from clothing
- Playing sports out in the sun where the knees may be exposed
- Excessive keratin on the skin on the knees
- Resting on the knees for long periods of time
- Other physiological conditions that may result in skin pigmentation

There are some quick remedies that can be used to rectify or at least lessen the dark patches on the knees.

  • Cleansing or exfoliating - Dead skin cells may build up in layers and cause the darkening of the knees and, thus, it is important to regularly exfoliate or scrub with a gentle soap. In mild cases, this alone can take care of the problems of dark knees.
  • Using lemon juice - Applying lemon juice 2 times daily for a few days regularly will reduce the dark areas and lighten the skin.
  • Moisturizing the skin - Applying a moisturizer regularly on the skin will keep it hydrated and also help in reducing dead skin cells piling up. This will prevent and also lessen the darkening of the skin on the knees.

However, home remedies or treatments may not be the solution in all cases as there may be underlying physical causes, which need to be treated at a deeper level. In such cases, it is prudent to seek dermatological treatment.

7 Botox Myths - How True are They?

7 Botox Myths - How True are They?

Botox is no longer confined to the celebrities and the rich and famous, it has become quite common in indian households today.

It is a minimally invasive procedure and a number of myths are associated with it. If you are thinking of having botox treatment for yourself, then let us help you make an informed choice:

7 botox myths how true are they?

A number of misconception are involved with botox, just do not believe them unless you get information from a reliable source like a dermatologist who is actively involved in giving botox treatments.

Some of the common myths are as under:
1. Botox will freeze the face
A common hearsay is that botox will freeze your face. You will lose your natural facial expressions. Botox does not make your face entirely expressionless, botox helps in curbing your dynamic wrinkles and prevents them to become static.
2. Wrinkles are barred forever
Botox temporarily delays the wrinkles and smoothes your face. It removes facial lines for some time, obviously not forever. The effect of botox wanes away in 3 to 6 months. It gives you a wrinkle free face but temporarily.
3. Botox is for older women
Another common myth is that botox is for older women. But this is not true as botox offers tremendous help in cases of premature aging and wrinkle development. It helps you in maintaining your youth and at the same time gives you confidence. Everyone is aging but botox helps you to age gracefully.
4. Botox is dangerous
A general notion is that botox is dangerous. There is simply not true. Instead botox is quite useful in the treatment of debilitating medical ailments like headaches, back pain cerebral palsy, etc. You need to get the botrox treatment done from a trained and qualified dermatologist or cosmetologists to get the best out of the treatment.
5. Botox will make the face immovable
This is perhaps the commonest misconception about botox. It is true that botox restricts muscle movement to some extent but this is temporary and goes off in a couple of days. Your face is back to its normal movements and expressions. Frozen face is no longer common; provide you get the treatment form a qualified doctor.
6. Swelling, pain and bruising
You may experience pain and redness at the injection site. They are completely gone in 2-3 days. Botox gives you great phenomenal results and minimal discomfort.
7. Botox has a lot of side effects
It is general perception that a number of side effects are associated with botox injections. This is completely false. The common side-effects are fatigue, nausea or headache. Rest all is wrong.

If possible send exact location of itch or pics. If you have fungal infection/itching, then home remedies or self treatment wont work to cure it, for fungal itch I will prescribe a schedule of anti fungal medication for your specific problem which have to be strictly followed or the fungii may develop resistance and come back later once cured. Hence never self treat fungal itches with any self prescribed medicines or it may lead to resistance and lifelong problem.

Hi lybrate-user, yes, tomato/egg white/ and lemon rubbing is good for your skin, it will improve your colour of the skin. I would also recommend you for glowing skin use a apple, Apple has alpha hydroxy acid. It improves skin colour and elasticity. Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face. Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water. Or You can also mash a banana and blend it with honey and apply it on your face. Wash it with lukewarm water after 15 minutes. Drink enough water and citrus fruit juices to make the skin fair and healthy. If you wants to know more then contact me again.
