Hi, I recently received 1st and 2nd degree burns on my legs from laser hair removal. At first they were darkened scabs over the area now the scabs have fallen off and I am left with white track like marks all over my legs. I am very worried about scarring. I have very dark tanned skin but I have made sure to stay out of the sun and keep the areas covered. It has been three weeks now.
Every time I have sex, my skin on cheekbone burns. And also the area gets dark after few minutes, and it stays on. I have been having this problem for more than two years. Now my skin color on cheekbone is way darker than my normal skin color. it looks uneven and ugly. please can anyone tell me what could be the best treatment?
Apply cool compresses on the area and take bath with cool(not very cold) water. Do not scrub your skin or shave your skin and use a soft towel and gently pat your skin dry.Also use a sunburn Over-The-Counter remedy containing aloe vera and a light moisturizer or a dusting powder to relieve chafing.You can apply silver sulfadiazine (1% cream) on the skin except face and see if it helps.
I felt burn on my skin I thought it might have been from the disinfected solution they soaked those stuff with,I removed those gears and cleaned my face with water and just forgot about it. Lately,I noticed dark spots on those areas where I felt burn from the disinfected solution...it looks like sun damage spots but I can see that it has pattern of snorkling gear mostly above my upper lip which looks very ugly..kinda like mustache and on the side of my right eye.
After a few hours, the brown skin peeled off and left red skin. It didn't hurt. I applied Polysporin which is the ointment and it says that it can heal fast due to Vitamin E. But I'm concerned that it's going to leave a permanent mark on my nose. Please Help!
I peeled off the burned skin and now it is pink skin how can i get rid of tht btw its on my cheek.

My question for you is should I go to a laser surgeon for this? Also, does laser surgery get rid of small flat moles like what I have? I have lots but I also have 13,000 dollars and am willing to spend every penny to have clear skin. Or else I'm never going to live my life. I've also seen this stuff; pixie dust that can grow back limbs. I figured I would chop my arm with the scars on them off and regrow my arm with pixie dust.

I had IPL 6 weeks ago and although I wasn't aware of blistering, I had hundreds of little nicks and surface abrasions on the skin and was swollen and very red for 4.5 weeks. I peeled quite heavily from day 10-14. I went back to the original derm who did the treatment after this, who said that I had developed seb derm and gave me cream for it.
Hi, I had spilled boiling hot water over my thighs 4 months ago and was rushed to the ER. I ended up having some superficial burns and second degree burns in some areas where the skin burned off completely. It had healed very well according to the doctor in the burns and plastic surgery department of the hospital. I also had an occupational therapist which assisted me with preventing the formation of hypertrophic scars through massaging the scar with a gel and the use of pressure garments.
Pain and discomfort is normal after any type of removal surgery, considering they first burned your skin with a laser, THEN used a highly acidic compound on your skin directly after. You shouldn't pick the skin, but let it heal. If you don't mind me asking, you had carbon dioxide laser treatment? I'm considering asking my doctor about this type of treatment for possible urethral warts, but have heard its the most expensive treatment...
razors, electric little machines, waxes, lotions,...you name it. I cannot afford laser removal, so I am still dealing with the hair. If I shave, it grows back on the same day! If I remove it with the electric machine or wax...it doesn't last more than 2 or 3 days, and I get ingrown hairs...really deep inside the skin. I have ugly, horrible scars in my legs from trying to pull ingrown hairs out. I am desperate.
They are now saying that my urticaria caused the burns i have contacted my dermatologist whom said it wouldnt pay any part of getting these burns could you please shed some light on this whether it could have any possibility that my urticaria caused laser burns and hyperpigmentation rather than their incompetent treatment?
i got the sodium bicarb from my mother who works as an admin officer in the hospital. anyways i noticed remarkable positive change in my skin tone!my pigment is coming back!slowly but surely!thing is that i don't really know whats making this change!as i sometimes use hydro cortisone!sometimes i go to the sun!sometimes i only hydrate....so among those solutions i would like to ask which one is the best which can really bring back my pigment completely and for sure!
I do not want to explain to her why mommy is in there. I had my first Laser Hair Removal Treatment on the 27th of June, next appointment is August 2nd and this time they will use numbing cream!!! I'm worried that this will be ongoing for the rest of my life because of the PCOS. My question is has anyone gone through these treatments and if so what was your success do you still do touch ups?
But after a few hours, the redness went away and now there are little circles all over the areas where she got lasered, presumably where the laser touched her skin. They were there last night and are still present this morning. They are reddish brown. My mum says that there is slight burning and that her skin feels 'stretched'. As it is the weekend, we haven't been able to contact the clinic but plan to do so first thing tomorrow morning.
So my senses tell me I should use the mederma on my keloid only and use the aloe vera on my burns. The burns are about 2 months old, Is it too late for the aloe vera, I've heard aloe vera only works on fresh burns? Some other products I am thinking of purchasing are for my keloid (if the mederma doesn't work out which I am starting to think it won't) is the Cica Care patch, it looks pretty promising.
They affect only the top layer of skin (epidermis). Second-degree burns extend into the middle layer of skin (dermis). Third-degree burns involve all three layers of skin. One medicine which has been advised by many dermatologists for scar diminishing is contractubex gel/cream. You can seek your dermatologist/surgeon’s opinion before using this cream. Otherwise you can go in for glycolic peals, laser treatments and pressure dressings.

Most superficial burns heal within about two weeks and don't usually leave a scarf. For these kind of burns; you can apply antibiotic cream such as silver sulfadiazine (Silvadene).It will prevent infection and help in fast healing.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
I don't understand why they haven't when liquid nitrogen was applied before to those areas on my legs and never got like that. I keep reading that ice burns go away just like heat burns do and take time but it's been a month and they are still CLEARLY visible and dark! Summer is here and I'd like to wear shorts so I can let my legs breathe...please advise on what needs to be done to clear up my skin.

Hello, For your itchy rash on face and arms, it can be due to viral rash or urticaria. So please get this possibility evaluated. Till then, take some antihistaminic like Benadryl and apply some calamine lotion. If the symptoms persist then please get an evaluation done by a dermatologist. you may need topical and oral steroids. For the rsah forming after shaving, it can be due to shaving bumps due to folliculitis. Folliculitis and ingrown hair are common after shaving.
Is there anything else that can be done, such as surgery or perhaps laser treatments? Or will these options just compound the problem? I'm devastated and heartbroken. My sex life should not be over at 47! My husband and I had a very active sex life before the cancer and would like to once again.
I have pock marks on my chin as a result of burns from laser hair removal. I'm told laser treatments can help this. Laser is what caused this in the first place !! (Never had acne or pimples in my life). Was this caused by technician error, I was told I was perfect candidate for laser hair removal, fair skinned etc.Within days of the treatments I had raised red areas on my chin with scabs. Treated it with Neosporin but when scabs fell off I was left with deep pock marks.
