I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Idiopathic guttate hypomelanosis (igh) manifests as small white spots on skin that receives high amounts of sun exposure. This includes areas such as arms and legs. The white spots are painless and benign. Igh is more common in people with light skin and may appear in women at younger ages than it does in men.

My sister got burns near eyes and neck because of caustic soda. What should I do to heal the burns.

My sister got burns near eyes and neck because of caustic soda. What should I do to heal the burns.
Hello. It was an unfortunate event that she had to go through. Chemical injuries of any form can be highly dangerous to the eyes, caustic injuries being the most serious ones. Immediate washing of the affected part (eye and neck) for a long time (20-30 mins) with at least around 1.5-2 litres under running tap water is highly recommended. An eye doctor needs to access the extent of damage to the cornea (most crucial part for vision). The eyes might be needing simple treatment with cmc drops in case of minor injuries or may require aggressive treatment in the form of eye drops, tablets and surgery in more serious cases. Caustic soda is known to cause injury in 3 phases-early, intermediate and late. Even if initially the eyes may be looking completely normal from outside, the caustic soda may continue to cause damage in the other 2 phases later which can have serious long term implications. It is highly advisable to consult an eye doctor (offline or online) at the earliest and not take it lightly. You can provide good quality photographs of the affected eye and seek online help too. As for the skin lesions, you can use simple burnol cream, it will slowly heal on its own if it is superficial. Again one has to look at the extent and depth of lesion to advise further. If it is deep, one might have to consider other options in that case. You can reach me out for anytime for consultation and for further guidance about the treatment. Hope this helps. Thank you.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Minor burns affecting the outer layer of skin and some of the underlying layer of tissue (superficial dermal burns) normally heal in around 14 days, leaving minimal scarring. If the burn's moderate or severe, you may be referred to a specialist burn care service.

No need of silverex oint. Just wash hand with soap and water twice daily and keep hand elevated. Use oint neosporin and preferably send a picture of your hand.

You can use papaya seeds to make a diy face mask which helps brighten your skin. Apply a layer of coconut oil on your face. It will cause the burning or tingling sensation but you need not worry. The enzymes in the papaya seeds cause the burning sensation. But you should not use anything without doctor's advice as it may be harmful for your skin.

In case the burn has healed within 2 weeks it will not leave any marks. Still some burn wounds may need some sort of modulation so that it heals scarless. Its is imperative that you consult a plastic surgeon/burn surgeons for evaluation. After evaluation only you should apply some medication.

Good afternoon. Regarding your query on 5 year old keloids, depending on the size and locations various allopathic options exist. Silicone sheet treatment is indeed one of the options. Contractubex gel at this stage (5 year gap) is unlikely to produce much effect if any. Regarding homeopathic options, I hope a doctor of the relevant field can provide you with an answer.
