Dark circles can be quite difficult to treat. Hereditary seems to play a significant role. In allergy prone individuals, a condition or state of'atopy' exists & these atopic individuals more often than not manifest with'dark circles' under the eyes. It also depends a lot on your lifestyle pattern- diet, sleep, computer / tv use and stress. Stressors/ strain due to working for long hours on computers & lack of sleep play a major role too. Dark circles due to thin under eye skin, the thin skin makes the blood vessels under the skin very prominent and hence this appears dark. You could benefit from using a cream containing vitamin k and retinol (ega cream). Use it once a day for at least 3 months to notice a difference. Another important cause of undereye dark circles is iron deficiency anemia. As can be judged from some of the reasons cited, good hydration, regular 6-8 hours of sleep, addressing stressors and a multivitamin and iron supplement by themselves will go a long way in correcting this issue. Skin lightening cream containing glycolic acid, kojic acid, vit c can be helpful in reducing the appearance of dark circles. Glycolic acid and arginine peels are the two commonly used peels by dermatologists for undereye dark circles. You can try a few peeling sessions (6-8 sessions). Apply adaple c gel over pimples and let me know the response.

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.

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

Chapped or dry lips are a common problem that can be painful and unattractive. Common symptoms are dryness, redness, cracking, flaking, and tender or sore lips.Some of the main causes are vitamin deficiency, allergic reaction, dehydration, smoking, excessive licking of lips, sun exposure and harsh weather. Castor oil is good treatment for dry and chapped lips. • Simply apply castor oil to your lips several times a day. • You can also make a soothing treatment using one teaspoon of castor oil, one teaspoon of glycerin and a few drops of fresh lemon juice. Mix it well and apply it on your lips before going to bed. In the morning, wash it off with a cotton ball dipped in lukewarm water. Repeat this daily until your lips are healed. • Homoeopathic LIP BALM ( BAKSON LAB) Apply twice daily

All About Pityriasis Rosea

Ask Free Question
Pityriasis rosea is a medical condition concerning the skin, which when contracted causes a rash. This condition can affect people of any age but it is usually seen to occur in people between the ages of 10 and 35. Pityriasis rosea is usually harmless. Read on more to find out all about the different causes, symptoms, prevention and treatments of pityriasis rosea.

Causes
Experts are unsure about the exact reason for the cause of pityriasis rosea. It is very different from other skin diseases as it is not caused due to an allergic reaction or caused due to fungal or bacterial infections. The rash is not contagious.

Symptoms

1. Pityriasis rosea forms a rash which begins with a single, oval or round in shape pink patch which is scaly in nature and consists of a raised border. The size of the patch varies and can vary between 2cm to 10 cm in diameter.

2. After a few days of the initial infection, salmon colored patches which vary in size from 1 to 2 cm in diameter appear in clusters in the chest, arms, back and abdominal regions.

3. The patches which occur in the back often form vertically in an angular fashion such that its appearance is similar to that of a fir tree.

4. The affected regions can cause severe itching in almost half the people who are affected by pityriasis rosea. The rash usually is cured in a span of 6 to 8 weeks but in certain cases it can persist for several months.

Treatment
Pityriasis rosea usually does not require any treatment. It usually goes away in the time span of 6 to 8 weeks. Itching can be subdued by using certain skin lotions and lubricants. If the itching is severe, your doctor might prescribe you certain anti-inflammatory medication. Certain antiviral medications also decrease the duration of the rash if they are taken at the beginning of the infection. In some cases exposure to sunlight also cures the rash very fast, but excess exposure to the sun can also cause sunburn and increase the risk of skin cancer. If the rash persists even after 3 months, it is highly advisable to consult a doctor.
