Dear lybrate user Oily skin (seborrhea) is caused by excess skin oil (sebum). During puberty, increased androgen levels, which are male hormones present in both males and females, signal the oil glands of the skin to mature. At this time the body begins producing much more skin oil.A constitutional treatment in Homoeopathy will give you good results also eat more vegetables and whole fruits and drink plenty of water

Use a good face-wash meant for oily skin and use it at least twice a day. Don't forget to use it after you come home from outside. If you are using hair oil, use only once a week and that too only for 1-2 hours, and wash off your hair. Please check if you have dandruff, the sticky type, as it may be a part of your overall oily tendency. Some restrictions on your diet too: avoid oily food, ghee, spicy food. Eat more of fresh fruits, curd, vegetables, salads. For any other queries, please revert back. Take care.

I have black black skin near eye bottom. I am used glayvera shop last 1 year. So what should I do?
Hello, Common reasons for dark circle are aging, genetics, nutritional deficiency (of vitamin A, C, K, E), sleep deprivation, worm-infestation, anemia, smoking & drinking, dehydration, sun exposure, allergies, stress/ tension and hormonal changes. Dark circles are linked to anemia, and liver diseases. So, in case of dark circles which are there due to some underlying cause can be get rid rid of once the causative factor is rectified. But the dark circles which are inherited from our genes can't be removed completely, to some extent can make slightly better. Diet and Management: Always take a balanced diet rich in green leafy vegetable, dairy products and all types of fruits to keep your body healthy. It is advisable to have at least 10-12 glasses of water and include fresh fruit daily. It is also advisable to restrict the intake of caffeinated drinks such as tea, coffee, alcohol and other caffeinated drinks as it aggravates dehydration. Take enough of 6-8hrs. Of sleep. Avoid taking stress/ tension. Do daily exercising regularly as it increases oxygen carrying capacity of the cells and tissues. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines – Schwabe's Cina 1M/ one dose at night for 10 days; Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos. - both twice daily for 20 days. Revert me there after.

You need to show how it appears. Warts are harmless but if they change their color, appearance or size, you should see a doctor. It will have to be removed by laser. Hair will grow if it is a small area.

Tips to Manage Pitted Keratolysis

MBBS, Diploma in Venerology & Dermatology (DVD)
Dermatologist, Delhi
Tips to Manage Pitted Keratolysis

Pitted keratolysis is a skin condition that affects the soles of your feet. As a result of this disease, the skin on the forefoot or heel turns white with pitted clusters. This is often accompanied by an offensive odor and is worse when the skin is wet. This odor is the main reason patients seek treatment for this skin condition. If left untreated, this can last for many years.

People who suffer from excessive sweating and those who wear closed shoes for extended durations have a high risk of suffering from this condition. Pitted Keratolysis is a bacterial infection where the bacteria multiply in moist conditions and release enzymes that destroy the horny cells of the foot soles. 

With time, this turns into characteristic crater like pits on the skin. They also produce sulphur compounds simultaneously that lead to the odor.

Treatment for this skin condition can be categorized under medicinal treatments and home remedies.

Medicinal remedies:

  1. One of the ways to treat this disease is to treat the hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating that triggers it.
  2. Topical fusidic acid ointments or clotrimazole ointments can also provide some relief.
  3. Your doctor may also prescribe oral antibiotics to clear stubborn lesions.
  4. Other treatment options include anti-bacterial soap and injectable botulinum toxin. Using a strong antiperspirant with aluminum chloride can also resolve the issue.

Home remedies:

  1. The first thing you must do if you suffer from this condition is keep your feet dry. Wearing socks with your shoes is a good idea as this keeps your feet dry and ventilated. Thus, keeping the bacteria from multiplying. After having a bath, pay special attention to drying your feet. You could even use a hair dryer on your feet.
  2. Wash your feet with soap and water at least twice a day. You could also use an antiseptic cleanser or antibacterial soap.
  3. Try and reduce the number of hours you wear closed shoes. Whenever possible, wear open toed sandals. Do not wear the same shoes for two days in a row without giving them time to dry out.
  4. If possible, change your socks at least once in the day.
  5. Do not share footwear or towels with anyone else.
  6. Apply antiperspirants to the soles of your feet.
  7. Soak your feet in half a bucket of water with 15-20 drops of tea tree oil.

Light coloured clothes r the best for sunny days since they reflect light. Tanning devices are a big no. The us fda has even banned the use of tanning devices starting this year due to the increased incidence of melanoma skin cancers. The more you stay away from them, the safer you are.

Hi lybrate-user I am sorry to say that no fairness cream or treatment can make a permanent change in your skin tone. All treatments are temporary, some general measures can be taken like avoiding too much sun light to prevent melanin formation in excess, good hydration, proper diet which is healthy in general, washing your face often etc. Skin tone is determined by genes only and they can not be changed with any local treatment. You should feel confident about yourself and start loving yourself as you are; then you will not even bother about the skin tone. Skin tone does not make a person what he or she is. It is you who can make a difference.
