I lead a very healthy lifestyle with proper diet and nutrition but those marks in my arms just doesn't leave me. Those were mosquito bites.

Razor bumps are also known as ingrown hairs, they are small bumps on your skin. These usually happen when some small strands of hair curl back after you shave and grow on your skin. Razor bumps can cause pimples and irritation along with scarring.
Treatment of razor Bumps:
You have to stop shaving in order to treat razor bumps. If the option to stop shaving is not feasible then you have to use a clean needle for removing the hair shaft when you come across the formations of bumps on your face. This may stop the growth of razor bumps. But you should keep in mind that razor bumps return after you start shaving. Severe razor bumps can be treated only with the help of creams like tretinoin and antibiotics.
Razor Bumps from other hair removal methods:
Razor bumps can occur from other hair removal methods like waxing and plucking. But you can get rid of razor bumps if you decide to remove hair permanently with the help of laser treatment and electrolysis. Some hair removal products like depilatories can cause irritations on your skin if not razor bumps.
Prevention of Razor Bumps:
Some of the tips to prevent razor bumps are given below:
- Using a thicker shaving gel when you shave.
- Try to use an electric razor if you are able to adjust to the settings.
- Use a good quality moisturizing cream after you shave.
- Avoid stretching your skin when you shave and use the razor in the direction of the growing hair along with fewer strokes of razor.
- You should soften your hair with water and mild soap before you shave.
- Try to use a single blade razor with good quality pre shaving oil and after shave lotion to reduce razor bumps to improve your shaving experience.
- Aloe Vera is a traditional home remedy for razor bumps which you should try.
Risks of razor bumps:
You are at a risk of razor bumps if you have spiral or tightly curled strands of hair. In any other circumstances anybody can get razor bumps which can be taken care of with proper techniques. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Wrong lifestyle choices and skin conditions tend to speed up the aging process, making one look older than one actually is. The rising air pollution and other environmental factors adversely affect the skin as well, aging it prematurely. However, in this day and age, dermatology is well equipped to control the signs of aging and make you look younger.
Here are 6 ways you might need the help of a dermatologist to reverse the ageing clock.
Reshape your nose without surgery - as we age, the nose becomes flatter and wider, changing the way we look. To tackle the signs of aging on the nose, a filler injection is used, sometimes in combination with a small amount of botox, to make the nose look younger. The injection slims down the nose and corrects in the unevenness of skin.
Alter the shape of your neck - the muscles in the neck are connected to those in the face. As one ages, the neck muscles become larger than they were originally and protrude out, pulling the facial muscles downwards. The trick here is to relax the neck muscles using a botox injection. This not only shrinks the neck muscles but remove wrinkle lines from the face.
Can take care of sagging earlobes - people have always been conscious of their ears. As the body ages, the skin and the muscles sag. This happens with ears as well. The earlobes are one of the first to show the signs of aging. Use of heavy earrings and aging, make the earlobes droop. This problem is tackled with a filler injection to each earlobe, which instantly makes the ears rounder and nicer to look at.
Can give you an even skin tone - sun tans tend to make the skin look darker than it originally is. There is nothing wrong with having dark skin, however, it does not look nice on someone who originally has a lighter skin tone.
Can prevent sagging - as the body ages, the muscles tend to expand and sag. The most prominent areas that experience sagging muscles are arms, buttocks, and thighs. There are methods to make the skin and muscles in these areas firmer, thereby preventing sagging.
Can make the wrinkles go away - wrinkles on the face are one of the earliest signs of aging. With the help of fillers and botox injections, the face lines go away, restoring the youthfulness of your skin.

See a Dermatologist/Family Physician for a diagnosis.
Your doctor conducting a physical examination, the doctor will also ask you a series of questions about your lifestyle to help figure out what's going on. The dermatologist will advise the best course of action for treating your existing dark spots and preventing more from showing up.
Since hyperpigmentation is a common condition for which many people seek treatment, there are a lot of products and treatments on the market promising to make the dark spots go away, fast. Seeing a Doctor will help you sort through what ingredients work and which ones don't.
Some of the best treatments for dark spots are available by prescription only, which is another good reason to see a doctor for further treatment.
Finally, it's important to rule out melanoma or another type of skin cancer as the potential culprit behind one or more of your dark spots. Getting a regular full-body examination every year is an important way to catch skin cancer before it advances.
Start with manual exfoliation. If you've only had the dark spots for a month or two, they may be contained within the top few layers of your skin. You might be able to get rid of them by simply exfoliating your face. Exfoliation is the process of removing the top layer of skin, bringing new skin to the surface.
Find an exfoliating cleanser that contains tiny particles that gently scrub the skin to take off the top layer. You can also make your own by mixing ground raw almonds or ground oatmeal into your regular cleanser(See the Above tips). Apply it to the dark spots in a circular motion.
Electric exfoliators such as the clarisonic dig a little deeper than your standard exfoliating cleanser. They work by gently scraping the dead skin cells from your face. You can find them online or in drugstores.
Try a topical acid treatment. These are available both by prescription and over the counter. They contain alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids or retinoids. The application of these different acids removes the top layer of dead skin cells, allowing fresh cells to grow so that the skin is rejuvenated. These treatments are used to treat hyperpigmentation of all types.
Alpha-hydroxy acids include glycolic acid, mandelic acid, citric acid, lactic acid and others. These acids are often derived from produce and other food products. They exfoliate the skin effectively, but are gentle enough for people with sensitive skin. Alpha-hydroxy acids can be found in serums, creams, moisturizers and peels.
Beta-hydroxy acid is also known as salicylic acid. It's a common ingredient in over-the-counter acne medications and skin treatments. Salicylic acid can be applied in a cream, serum, cleanser or peel.
Retinoic acid is also known as tretinoin, or Retin-A. Retinoic acid is a form of Vitamin A. It's a very effective treatment for acne and dark spots. It is available in creams and gels, only by prescription in the United States.
If you're looking for an over-the-counter product, try to find one that contains a combination of these ingredients: hydroquinone, cucumber, soy, kojic acid, calcium, azelaic acid, or arbutin.
Consider a chemical peel. If surface treatments don't sufficiently fade your dark spots, you might consider a Chemical peel. Chemical peels literally remove the top layers of your skin. They often contain the acids describe above in high concentrations. They are classified by three levels of strength: light, medium and deep.
Light chemical peels usually include alpha-hydroxy acids. Glycolic acid and lactic acid are common ingredients. They're considered the most effective peels for dark spots.
Medium chemical peels include TCA, or trichloroacetic acid. Many recommend this peel for dark spots due to sun damage. For best results, it is usually repeated every two weeks until the spots have sufficiently faded. These peels are generally not recommended for people with darker complexions as they can cause more dark spots to appear after the skin has healed.
Deep chemical peels contain phenol, or carbolic acid, as their active ingredient. They are often used for deep wrinkles, but also for correcting severe sun damage. Phenol peels are very strong, and are administered under anesthesia. It may take several months for results to show as the skin heals.
Try microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a procedure that uses very fine crystals to "sandblast" the dark spots off your skin. A new, fresh layer of skin grows in place of the skin that was removed. Treatments are usually done once a month over several months.
Find an experienced practitioner. Abrading the skin can cause irritation, making the discoloration worse. If someone does it wrong, you might end up very disappointed with the results.
Microdermabrasion should not be done too often, since your skin needs time to heal between treatments.
Look into laser treatment. Laser treatment, also called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, uses quick pulses of light to destroy dark-spot causing melanin. The pigmented areas absorb the light and shatter or vaporize. Your body heals the spot by forming a scab and growing new, fresh, unpigmented skin in its place. Laser treatment is highly effective, but expensive, and can be painful.
Laser treatment is usually the best option when the spots have been there for a long time. Dark spots you've had for a year or longer are deep within the skin, and topical treatments won't be able to reach them.
If you have very light skin, 4 or 5 laser treatments may be needed before the spots are completely gone.
