The white streaks is actually stretch marks. Sudden gain or loss in weight, rapid growth, heredity factors, stress and changes in physical conditions leads to stretch marks. Stretch marks happen after delivery too. Stretch marks can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable about your appearance. But, don't worry, there are several natural ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The stretch marks fade away with time. 1. Try to scrub the area daily and put vitamin e oil 2. You can also apply some castor oil to the stretch marks and gently massage the area in circular motions for 5 to 10 minutes 3. Use aloe vera gel on the area once a day 4. Use rich cocoa butter before going.

Tanning of skin / hyperpigmentation and homoeopathy

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
Tanning of skin / hyperpigmentation and homoeopathy
Tanning/ pigmentation
Mainly sun-exposed areas of the face are affected. This pigmentation often disappears over several months after stopping oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy or after delivering a child. It may return with additional pregnancies or use of these medications again. The patches gradually fade over many months. In some people, the discoloration never entirely disappears. However, this condition develops unexpectedly in some women who are neither pregnant, taking oral contraceptives, nor hormone replacement medications.

Causes:
Excess exposure to the sun
Pregnancy
Genetic predisposition
Photosensitizing medications
Use of oral contraceptive pills

Appearance of discoloration:

Chocolate and dark brown patches with irregular in shape

Locations:

Most commonly affected area upper cheek, upper lip and forehead.

Homoeopathy remedies: sulphur, lycopodium clavatum, sepia officinalis, thuja occidentalis, argenticum nitricum, cadmium sulphuratum, copaiva officinalis, guarana, caulophyllum thalictroides and plumbum metallicum and urtica urens.


Prevention:
Avoiding the sun and using sunscreen
Avoid irritating the facial skin- no strong soaps or abrasive cleaners - use only a mild soap or cleanser for washing.
Increase intake of foods high in folic acid, dark green leafy vegetables, wheat germ, asparagus, broccoli, potatoes, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
Avoid make-ups, facial cleansers or creams that irritate the skin.
Avoid stress
Exercise and meditation helps fighting stress.

Hello. Heavy pigmentation could be because of many reasons. So, get thorough body check up done, visit a Gynaecologist and share the reports with me. Meantime, you can start using Bioforce's Blooume - 55 ointment (for clear skin) twice daily and also use Bakson's Suncare Sunscreen, 20-30 minutes before stepping out under the sun. And also take Homoeopathic Rx - Caulophyllum 200/ once daily for 20 days. (There is no permanent cure for Chloasma as such, but we can lighten or maintain the hyperpigmentation.)

I am 55 year married male. Since last several years, after shower, my fingers and palm of both hands (front and back) becomes very dry and it shows white patches. After applying coconut oil/body lotion/etc, it matches the natural skin colour as patches are gone because of application of oil/lotion/etc. Also, my skin colour is very dark below my finger nails (till the end of fingers and knuckles) compared to rest of the skin. Pls suggest me some solution for this. Thanks.

You could be suffering from eczema. However, I can not confirm me without seeing the photos of the area. If you have eczema, it is important to take good care of your skin. Take warm (not hot!) baths on a regular basis and immediately applying moisturizers afterward will help keep your skin moist. •Moisturize every day. •Wear cotton or soft fabrics. Avoid rough, scratchy fibers and tight clothing. •Take lukewarm baths and showers, using mild soap or non-soap cleanser •Gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel – do not rub. •Apply a moisturizer within 3 minutes after bathing to “lock in” moisture. •When possible, avoid rapid changes of temperature and activities that make you sweat. •Learn your eczema triggers and avoid them. •Use a humidifier in dry or cold weather. •Keep your fingernails short to help keep scratching from breaking the skin. •Some people with allergies find it helps to remove carpets from their house, and give pets dander treatments.

I am 22 and I am getting black circles near my eyes can you suggest best way to prevent it.
Homoeopathic treatment UNDER EYE CREAM ( BAKSON) Apply at night under the eye in circular fashion GLOWCARE DROPS ( LORDS) 20 drops in 20 ml freh water 3 times daily Take a good Iron rich diet likeApple,Pomegranate,Spinach nd all other green vegetables 2 glass milk daily 6-8 glass extra water daily Try to have a sound sleep HOME REMEDIES Slice up a papaya. Papaya fruit contains the enzyme papain. Papain helps exfoliate the skin, making way for new skin cells to emerge. Papaya also contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E, so it's a dark spot fading superstar. Papain is most concentrated while the papaya is still green, but you can use riper fruit as well. Peel and remove the seeds from a papaya, and try one of the following treatments: 1. Slice a piece off of the papaya, and lay or hold it on the dark spots that you want to get rid of. Hold it there for 20-30 minutes. Repeat twice a day for best results. 2.Make a papaya facial mask. Cut the papaya into chunks, then use a blender or food processor to blend the fruit into a smooth paste. Apply the mask to your face and neck. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, then rinse well.

All About Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal refers to a process in which a special laser light is shone upon hair follicles. Pigments in the hair follicles soak up the light and this stops the hair from growing. There are several advantages as well and risks associated with laser hair removal treatment. Here is everything you need to know about laser hair removal.

Advantages:

  1. Precision: One of the biggest advantages of laser hair removal is the fact that you can pick and choose and remove only the hair, which you want to remove, which is not the case with waxing.
  2. Speed: Laser hair removal is relatively quick as an area, roughly equal to the size of one coin can be treated within a second. Therefore, small areas which need to be treated can be treated in under a minute while the whole back can have all the hair on it treated in about an hour.
  3. Reliability: Laser hair removal is very predictable and reliable due to the fact that hair will permanently be gone if this treatment is opted for.

What not to do?
Laser hair removal like any other treatment requires trained professionals as well as some precautions. Here are some precautions you should take before laser hair removal treatment.

  1. Limit plucking, electrolysis and waxing : All of these treatments remove the root of the hair. This is not good as the laser hair removal treatment is meant to be performed on the root of the hair. These should not be done for six weeks before treatment.
  2. Avoid sun exposure: Exposure to the sun creates complications and should be avoided for up to six weeks before treatment and also six weeks after treatment.

Risks:
There are also several risks of laser hair removal, which are pretty common and about which you should be aware of. These include.

  1. Blisters and sunburns: Even though blisters are rare, sunburns are pretty common. You can wear makeup on your face to cover up the side burns unless it has blisters.
  2. Changes in the color of the skin: Sunscreen can be worn to treat this problem.

Dear lybrate user, Applying of herbal treatments such as sage, lavender, tea tree oil and chamomile. These herbs have anti-pruritic and soothing properties which can relieve severe itch. These can also make the skin smoother upon application. Salt water application. This can be done several times in a day to alleviate itchiness. The salt contained in the solution attracts the water contained in the bumps, thus relieving swelling. Herbal medicines containing camphor and menthol can also be applied to the infected area. Camphor and mint have antibiotic properties. Proper hygiene. Daily bathing and cleansing can prevent as well as treat the painful red bumps on the skin.

Autosensitization Dermatitis - How Can it Be Treated?

Autosensitization Dermatitis - How Can it Be Treated?

Our skin is delicate and is the body’s largest or/an. The skin is susceptible to a wide range of ailments and conditions, since it is the most exposed part of the body. Autoeczematisation (generally known as autosensitization dermatitis) is skin inflammation caused by bacteria, which are present in various parts of the human body. The eczema or infection usually begins from the arms and legs before spreading to the rest of the body.

It is also referred to as id response. It is an intense response to a variety of stimuli that affect the skin. These include irritable and infectious skin conditions. The rash that characterises the id response, which is viewed as immunologic in origin, is known as dermatophytid, pediculid, or bacterid. When linked with another infectious disease in the body, it becomes all the more intense.

Autoeczematisation is generally caused when the skin has a reaction to a contamination or infection. The disease might be caused by an infection, bacteria, microscopic organisms or even a parasite. In case the body builds up an infection, the skin responds to it by weakening the immune system. This makes the skin more prone to catching a disease or an illness. This can result in autoeczematisation and make the skin more irritable.

Symptoms

Given below are the symptoms of autoeczematisation:

  • Itching

  • Skin bumps

  • Blisters

  • Red skin

  • Delicate skin

Autoeczematisation usually begins with an infection brought on by microbes, bacteria, or some organism. It will show itself on the skin in about 1 to 2 weeks as an allergy. In typical dermatitis symptoms, individuals experience dry and irritated skin along with wounds or injuries appearing on the arms and legs.

Similarly, as with any skin issue, in case it is persistent and painful, you need to quickly contact your specialist, dermatologist, or autoeczematisation skin care expert.

Treatment

There are three sorts of treatment for autoeczematisation once an analysis has been done. Most doctors treat the origin of the disease or infection. Once this has been fully accomplished, the injuries can be treated.

  1. Corticosteroids: Corticosteroids are creams that you apply to the skin. This cream comes in both over-the-counter and prescription form. They are used to control itching and irritation.

  2. Antihistamines: Antihistamines can also be prescribed and are available over the counter. These are used to control the itching. Benadryl is a common over-the-counter type of syrup and pill that can be taken.

  3. Lotions: Once autoeczematisation has been diagnosed, it's important to keep the skin appropriately hydrated. A mild lotion should be applied on the skin once a day.
