How much a dermatologist charge for treating scars. And which is the best surgery for it.

How much a dermatologist charge for treating scars. And which is the best surgery for it.
It is a very broad question, you will have to be a little more specific. For small single scar, one can remove it and stitch the skin back. For multiple small acne scars, stretch mark scars, chicken pox or injury scars, laser resurfacing, dermaroller, chemical peeling will be required. Charges of which can vary from 2000 -30, 000/-.

Hello lybrate-user. Dark circles have various causes like 1.genetic 2.lack of sleep 3.allergy- certain allergies trigger blood vessels to dilate and since the skin under eyelids is thinnest in the body causes swollen blood vessels to appear darker compared to other part of face.

All About Acne and Scars

All About Acne and Scars

Acne is one of the most common skin problems. As many as one in two people suffer from the condition. Acne vulgaris is the most common type followed by acne rosacea and more severe acne conglobate. More boys than girls suffer from acne and it often co-occurs with the onset of puberty, as testosterone levels rise. It is likely that there is some hormonal involvement in the condition, yet dietary and environmental factors, stress and gut health can all cause acne.

It's a disease that affects the skin's oil glands. The small holes in your skin (pores) connect to oil glands under the skin. These glands make an oily substance called sebum. The pores connect to the glands by a canal called follicle. Inside the follicles, oil carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin. A thin hair also grows through the follicle. When a follicle clogs up, acne grows. Acne is not a serious health threat, but it can cause scars.

How Does Acne Develop?

Sometimes, the hair, sebum, and skin cells clump together into a plug. The bacteria infect the plug and causes swelling. Then, as the plug starts to break down, it leads to acne. There are many types of acne. The most common types are:

  1. Whiteheads. A whitehead is a type of acne that forms when dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria become trapped within one of our pores.
  2. Blackheads. Blackheads are a specific kind of dark acne lesion, so-called because they contain oxidized melanin, the pigment made by skin cells called melanocytes.
  3. Papules. These are small pink bumps that can be tender.
  4. Pustules. This type of acne is red at the bottom and has pus-filled head.
  5. Nodules. These are large, painful, solid acne that are deep-rooted in the skin.
  6. Cysts. These are deep, painful, pus-filled acne that can cause scars.

Who Gets Acne?

Acne is the most common skin condition. People of all races and ages get acne. But it is most common in teenagers and young adults. An estimated 80 percent of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 have acne outbreaks at some point. Some people in their forties and fifties still get acne.

What Causes Acne?

The cause of acne is unknown. However, there are certain factors that might cause acne:

  1. The hormonal surge in teenage (this can cause the oil glands to plug up more often).
  2. Hormonal changes during pregnancy.
  3. Use of birth control pills.
  4. Heredity (if your parents had acne, you might get it, too).
  5. Certain types of medications.
  6. Greasy makeup.

Here are some tips for acne-affected skin:

  1. Clean skin gently.
  2. Try not to touch your acne affected area.
  3. Shave carefully.
  4. Protect your skin from sun-exposure.
  5. Choose makeup carefully.
  6. Shampoo your hair regularly.

What Can Make Acne Worse?

  • Changing hormone levels in teenage girls and women 2 to 7 days before their period starts.
  • Pressure from bike helmets, backpacks, or tight collars.
  • Pollution and high humidity.
  • Squeezing or picking at acne.
  • Hard scrubbing of the skin.

Acne Scars:

Acne may or may not lead to scarring. Some people are more prone to scarring than others. A person may have rather severe acne without a scar in sight. For others, even a benign little blemish can leave a depressed pockmark. Early treatment is the best way to prevent scars. If you are highly prone to scarring, see a Cosmetic physician or dermatologist right away to discuss acne treatment options. He or she can layout a treatment plan, to heal breakouts and prevent or treat scars.

Treatment of Acne and Scars:

Acne is treated by a cosmetic physician or a dermatologist. Treatment attempts to:

  • Heal acne.
  • Prevent new breakout.
  • Prevent scarring.

Acne requires a proper medical treatment and post acne care for dark spots/scars which are commonly associated with acne. If your skin is acne prone, you may develop dark spots and scars too. All these conditions can be treated. Apart from medical treatment which includes ointments for local application and oral medications if required, for long term benefits advanced treatments are available. These are, Chemical peels, RF therapy and enriched oxygen therapy. These are highly recommended. These treatments help acne as well as spots and scars.

Fungal Infection In Nails - Best Ways To Treat It!

Fungal Infection In Nails - Best Ways To Treat It!

If you are experiencing symptoms such as swelling, inflammation, thickening, yellowing and crumbling of your nails, toenail fungus or onychomycosis is indicated. This is a very common problem, which is usually painless, unless the infection gets spread. The fungus thrives under certain conditions like abnormal levels of pH in the skin, a weak immune system, poor hygiene, diabetes and a continuous exposure to moist or damp environment. If not treated properly, toenail fungus can lead to cracking, splitting or total loss of your toenail. There are various ways of treating fungal infections in the nails. Some of them are as follows:

  1. Tea Tree Oil: Tea tree oil contains antiseptic and antifungal properties, which help in treating toenail fungus. You need to mix some drops of tea tree oil with coconut oil and olive oil. Using a piece of cotton, apply the mixture on your affected nail, keep it for 10 minutes and scrub off the nail with a toothbrush. For ideal results, you must repeat this process more than twice regularly.

  2. Baking Soda: Baking soda is a commonly used remedy for fungal infections in your nails. It also helps in neutralizing foot odor. Add baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and Epsom salt in hot water, add vinegar to the mixture and soak your affected nail in the solution. After this, wash your feet with water. Repeat the procedure twice a day for several weeks.

  3. White Vinegar: This is an ideal ingredient for the treatment of toenail fungus. It helps in restoring the pH balance of the skin and fights against infections. Add one part of white vinegar to warm water and soak your affected toenail in it for about 10 minutes. After this, you must wash it off. Carry out the process twice a day for effective results.

  4. Oil of Pregano: Oil of oregano is considered effective because of its antibacterial, antiviral, analgesic and antiseptic properties. It is an ideal way for treating fungal infections in your nails. Mix oregano oil with olive oil, apply the solution on your nails and leave it for over 30 minutes. Repeat the process thrice a day for good results.

  5. Listerine Mouthwash: Listerine mouthwash is another important home remedy for treating fungal infections in the nails. This mouthwash contains certain compounds along with alcohol, which have very strong antiseptic properties and help in eliminating harmful fungi and bacteria from your nails. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

My lips are becoming very dark day by day. How can prevent it at least a little bit from becoming dark.

BHMS
Homeopath, Secunderabad
My lips are becoming very dark day by day. How can prevent it at least a little bit from becoming dark.
Lips in many people often become a little darker in tone over time. If it doesn't create any problem then you need not worry. Also check if you are using any strong /harsh lipstick or balm. Being fit and healthy overall should be your concern. Eat healthy and exercise every day to be healthy. If still you feel confused, please visit a doctor and convey your concerns and get a solution. You can follow up with me if required.

Whats can be possible causes of rectal bleeding at the age of 14? He has diarrhae and bleeding since 2 week.please help

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
Instead of brooding to know the causes of bleeding per rectum, I advice you to see a physician who will treat his diarrhea with blood, if both are present it is called dysentery and a physician is the right person to treat him, it is most likely he has infection in his intestines. A surgeons opinion can be sought at a later date if there is no response.
