Dear lybrate user, at present you may apply lemon juice on the pimple for one hour daily for five days and wash it. See the results. As you know there are so many causes of pimples and there are different types of pimple as. You must mention in detail so that proper homeo remedy can be prescribed.

Mostly these are allergic rashes, check your food items, avoid curd and non vegetarian food. Requires local and internal preparations, if interested inform.

Mix required amounts of gram flour, lemon juice and curd or yogurt. Apply this paste on tan affected area of forehead and face. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash it with water. This is an exclusive face pack prepared at home to remove tan from your skin in a very easy and effective way. A mixture of egg white, milk cream and honey works excellent against skin tanning. Mix tomato juice with honey or yogurt and apply it daily on skin to remove tanning.

Lichen Sclerosus overview

Quite a rarity, lichen sclerosus is a skin disease, which is typically identified as white, patchy skin that is both sensitive and thinner than the surrounding area. Although it can appear anywhere on the body, it is found to occur predominantly in the skin regions in and around the vulva, the anus and the foreskin of the penis. It is a common occurrence in postmenopausal women.

Symptoms
Mild cases of lichen sclerosus are usually asymptomatic, but moderate to severe cases may have any of the following signs and symptoms:
1. Itching, which may or may not be severe
2. Smooth and sensitive white spots
3. Easy tearing or bruising
4. Pain or discomfort
5. Wrinkled or blotchy patches
6. Painful intercourse
7. Blistering, bleeding or ulcerated lesions in more severe cases

Causes
Although there are no known exact causes of lichen sclerosus, here are a few possible causes:
1. An overactive immune system
2. An imbalance of hormones
3. Previous skin damage at a particular site making it tender and sensitive

Complications
A number of problems may arise from the skin disease, if left untreated. Here are a few complications:
1. Skin cancer may develop, but then again, this is a very rare occurrence
2. Lichen sclerosus on the vulva can lead to the development of vulvar cancer.
3. Sexual intercourse can get extremely painful for women in severe cases, due to intensive scratching and scarring
4. Can cause thinning and tightening of the foreskin of uncircumcised men. This can be troublesome during erections or when urinating.

Treatment
If the symptoms do not show or if your genital area is not badly affected, then you may not necessarily need treatment. However, if symptoms begin to appear, you should probably consult a doctor for treatment. Treatment can help decrease scarring and itching, as well as improve your skin's appearance.
Corticosteroid ointments and creams are the most common form of treatment. Apart from this form of treatment, your doctor may also prescribe the following:
1. Immune-modulating medications
2. Ultraviolet light treatment
3. Topical sex hormones
4. Circumcision or removal of the foreskin of the penis.

10 Expert Tips to Undergo Safer Facial Cosmetic Surgery

Thanks to cosmetic surgery, today, it is possible to alter your facial features any way you want. For some it's a way to reverse signs of aging while for others it may be to restructure a part of their face that they are not comfortable with. Whatever be your reason, here are ten tips to ensure safer facial cosmetic surgery.

1. Have the right motivation: cosmetic surgery will change the way you look, not your lifestyle. Do not undergo such a surgery if you think it will give you a new lifestyle.

2. Have realistic expectations: going under a plastic surgeon's knife can alter your facial feature, but only up to a limit. You may want your nose to look like that of your favourite actress, but the end result of the surgery will depend on the bone and cartilage structure of your nose. Having unrealistic expectations can take away from the satisfaction of plastic surgery.

3. Find a surgeon who shares your aesthetic sense: if you and your surgeon do not share the same ideas on what looks good, you may end up with a result you are not satisfied with. Before deciding on a doctor, take a look at photographs of their earlier clients.

4. Be wary of promotions that offer to pay for your surgery: cosmetic surgery is expensive, but do not try and save money by choosing to work with inexperienced doctors.

6. Meet the entire surgical team: along with the doctor it is also important to meet the other members of the surgical team. Also, take a look at the facilities offered and the type of surgical atmosphere available.

7. Have a clear written plan for the surgery and possible follow up procedures: cosmetic surgeries often require multiple procedures. Ask your doctor for a clear plan with all the costs involved.

8. Ensure that you have an aftercare plan: on the off chance that something does not go according to plan, ensure that you know what is to be done and insist on an aftercare treatment from your doctor.

9. Have a strong support system in place: it will take a few months for the effects of your surgery to be visible. Until then, your face may appear swollen and bruised. Get support from your friends and family as this may keep you indoors for awhile.

10. Be aware of the risks: like any other surgery, this one too has risks associated with it. Ensure that you are aware of these risks so that you can make an informed decision.

11. Don't rush your decision: lastly, take your time deciding on the exact procedure you want. Remember that the effects of cosmetic surgery are permanent.

This must be prickly heat due to excessive heat exposure in summers. •Prepare a paste by mixing together equal amounts of sandalwood powder and rose water. Apply this paste on the affected skin, and leave it on until it dries. Rinse it off with cold water. Follow this remedy twice daily for a week. •Alternatively, mix two tablespoons each of sandalwood powder and coriander powder with enough rose water to make a thick paste. Smear the paste on the affected area and let it dry on its own. Wash with cold water and pat dry your skin. Repeat twice daily for a week. •You can also sprinkle sandalwood powder as a talcum over the affected areas after taking a shower.

Hello Roshan, Now that you are getting very few pimples, you can apply Erytop cream on the pimples in morning, Calosoft lotion at night all over the face and Moiz face wash to wash the face. These three things will reduce the pimples.

Maybe you have polymorphous light eruption or solar urticarial. It's hard to tell without seeing it. What you can do is use a broad spectrum sunscreen with spf30, both indoors and outdoors. Use it before and after a swim. Make sure you apply it even when you r at home or in the car. After every three hours, it has to be reapplied.
