Your symptoms probably have nothing to do with hiv. It doesn't develop so quickly. Also since your tests have been negative I think there is nothing much to worry about. But it would be better to know the hiv status of your partner.

Moisturising is the key to good health of your lips. Well, moisturised lips fasten the cell renewal process, thereby lightening them. Hence, use of glycerin can be a good start as a thin coat of it can help heal your lips.Applying the cream of fresh milk can have dual benefits on dry and dark lips. They not only remove the dryness from the lips, but also lighten their colour.People also rely on clarified butter to soften those parched lips. They are a definitely tried and tested cure to get pink lips

Sir my skin having fungle infection. Please suggest me how to cure my skin by infection.

Sir my skin having fungle infection. Please suggest me how to cure my skin by infection.
Hello, ringworm is caused by a fungus that grows on the skin. Once the fungus is established, it spreads out in rings. The centre of the ring may clear up, while a new ring of infection develops at the edge of the old ring. Fungi are microscopic organisms that can live off the dead tissues of your skin, hair, and nails, much like a mushroom can grow on the bark of a tree. Medication: take schwabe's tellurium 30/ thrice daily for 2 weeks. Management: good personal hygiene helps prevent the spread of ringworm. Teach your child to practice good hygiene and generally not to share combs, brushes, or hats. Children also shouldn't share towels, clothes, or sports equipment that haven't been properly cleaned. Avoid wearing any wet clothes, prefer cotton clothes, keep the area dry and clean. Never use others towels or clothes as well as don't share yours with others. Ringworm can also be transmitted from an infected dog or cat, so avoid animals who look mangy or have bald spots in their coats. If you have an animal that you think may have ringworm, take it to the vet for treatment.

You will need laser treatment for so many problems. Home remedies or creams will not be very effective and can affect the other problem if one gets resolved. Go to a good laser clinic that has a good dermatologist to give you the right treatment.

5 Home Remedies to Get Rid of Dark Circles

Ayurveda, Delhi
5 Home Remedies to Get Rid of Dark Circles

5 home remedies to get rid of dark circles:

1. Almond oil: A completely natural ingredient that benefits skin around your eyes, almond oil helps lighten dark circles. Combine almond oil with vitamin e oil and your dark circles will be history. Plus, these ingredients really something that’s a staple in every household.

Usage

  • Before hitting the sack, apply some almond oil over your dark circles and massage it gently into the skin.
  • Leave the oil on overnight.
  • Wash it off with cold water next morning.

Repeat this every day until your dark circles are gone.
 

2. Cucumber: Remember those hollywood movies where women are seen relaxing at a spa with cucumber slices on their eyes? well, there’s a reason beyond gloss. With skin-lightening and mild astringent properties, cucumbers are completely equipped to fix those raccoon eyes. Better yet, they are soothing and refreshing too.

Usage

  • Cut a fresh cucumber into thick slices and chill it for about 30 minutes.
  • Place the slices on the dark circles for about 10 minutes.
  • Wash the area thoroughly with water.

Repeat this process twice a day for one week to see results.
 

3. Raw potato: Potatoes contain vital natural bleaching agents and used raw, they help lighten dark circles and reduce excess puffiness around your eyes

Usage

  • Grate a couple of chilled potatoes to extract the juice.
  • Soak a cotton ball in the juice and place it on your closed eyes.
  • Make sure the juice covers the dark circles entirely.
  • Allow the juice to sit for about 15 minutes and rinse your eyelids well with cool water.

Repeat once or twice daily for 2 - 3 weeks to see results. 
 

4. Rose water: There’s a reason mothers always advise their children to rinse their eyes with rose water when they’re sore. It not only rejuvenates skin and reduces dark circles but also has a soothing effect on tired eyes. Due to its mild astringent properties, it also works well as a skin toner.

Usage

  • Soak cotton eye pads in rose water for a few minutes.
  • Place the soaked pads on your closed eyelids.
  • Leave them on for about 15 minutes.

Follow this remedy twice daily for 2 - 3 weeks to see results. 
 

5. Tomato: Tomato, the fruit that’s used like a vegetable, is known to naturally possess powerful bleaching properties that can lighten skin very effectively.

Usage

  • Mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with one and a half teaspoon of lemon juice.
  • Gently apply this mixture on your dark circles and allow it to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Rinse it off well with cool water.

Follow this remedy twice a day for 2 - 3 weeks to see results.

Hello, yes, it is sun tanning that shocked your relatives. Well, do not worry, you just need to be more careful with your skin, and also be patient, it won't change overnight. - use a de-tan lotion after bath and before bed time. - cleane your face nicely with a facewash whenever your face feels dirty. - use a face scrub and face pack once in 7 days for exfoliation. - wear a good sun screen with spf 30 everyday before going out. - keep wet wipes handy to keep your face clean all the time. - wear sun screen even in monsoon.

I have some white spot on my back from last 6 month. It is spreading day by day on my body. What should I do?

I have some white spot on my back from last 6 month. It is spreading day by day on my body. What should I do?
White spots on can occur due to a number of reasons, of which conditions can be mild or severe. The condition can be mild or severe, and generally covers the majority of the skin on a particular area of the body. They may also cause irritation or itching. The occurrence of whites on the face can be extremely distressing. People affected with this problem should obtain medical advice to diagnose what is causing the condition and the suitable treatment. Causes of White Spots White spots on the face occur for various reasons. Understanding some of these reasons may be beneficial in treating the condition. Furthermore, understanding the cause can also help people avoid certain circumstances that increase the risk. 1. Tinea Versicolor This is a chronic fungal infection of the skin. Also known as pityriasisversicolor, this fungus causes discolored patches on the skin as it interferes with the normal pigmentation. The color of the patches may be darker or lighter than the surrounding skin and most often, affects the back and trunk of adolescent males. Exposure to sunlight, hot, humid weather, oily skin and excessive sweating may aggravate the condition. 2. Vitiligo This is a skin condition that results in the loss of melanocyte pigmentation of the skin. This results in white patches that feel as if it is part of the skin. The cause of vitiligo is unclear although it is believed to be an autoimmune disease. However, mild trauma to any area of the skin including the face can also result in the development of vitiligo. Vitiligo can affect the face, hands and feet, elbows and genital area. 3. Idiopathic Guttate Hypomelanosis White spots on the face may also be due to Idiopathic Guttate Hypomelanosis, a skin condition resulting in 2 to 5 mm flat, white spots commonly found on the shins and forearms. This skin condition mostly affects fair skinned people, although it may occur in dark skinned individuals too. The white spots may occur more commonly in people over the age of 40. 4. Pityriasis Alba This skin condition is common in children aged 6 to 12. It is a rash that appears on the face, neck and arms, and is not easily differentiated between normal skin. The rash may be covered with skin flakes resembling light dust. The cause of Pityriasis Alba is not known and is often considered as a form of eczema. This condition is often mistaken with vitiligo. However, while vitiligo has a distinct border, Pityriasis Alba does not. Treatments for White Spots on Face The medical treatment for white spots depends entirely on the root cause that underlies the condition. There are certain things that you can try to accelerate the process of treatment . Some of these mentioned treatments are professional while others are home remedies. Home Remedies .  For treating vitiligo, consumption of ginger juice is recommended as it promotes blood flow. neem seed oil applied to the affected area will also bring beneficial results.  Idiopathic Guttate Hypomelanosis may not require treatment as it is harmless. However, topical steroids and retinoids may help treat the condition.  Treatment for Pityriasis Alba may not be necessary although the application of a moisturizer or hydrocortisone creams may help the disappearance of these patches.  Washing the face with mild soaps and exfoliating the skin at least twice a week with a honey, rice, turmeric and sandalwood powder paste can treat Tinea Versicolor. So identify your problem of white spots with the help of your local doctor so that appropriate treatment is given or send me your picture depicting those white spot along with the complete hitory of your spots,so that I am clear in making a diagnosis.
