The treatment includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.
Avatar n tn I was wondering how to treat skin discoloration. I have severe sking discoloration on my upper inner thighs. The skin is darker in areas. I use to heat up heating pad repeatedly and place it in my lap and I thought that may have been the cause. I have stopped heating it up but the skin discoloration is still there. I think it tends to get worse in the cold. I am not sure if my weight loss may be a factor.

Avatar n tn This is a mild skin inflammation which produces temporary discoloration of the cheeks. Cause unknown, treatment largely unnecessary. It is likely to even out over time. Next time she visits her pediatrician, ask for him or her to evaluate it. Best. Dr.
Avatar n tn I've tried a lot of products on the market, some seem to work, others do not. After the acne is cleared, black marks are left on the skin where the acne pimple use to be(skin pigmentation). Is there any products out there that can treat acne and heel skin pigmentation at the same time? It's one thing to get rid of the acne, then you have to worry about skin skin pigmentation. Do guys require a stronger treatment than girls?
Avatar f tn It all began when I tried an OTC acne treatment that irritated my skin. I scratched at it and the area I scratched got read and darkened. Well the area darkened and spread even after I realized what I was doing and stopped scratching. Not it has spread to the area around my mouth too. I took some pictures, hope they help. http://i1130.photobucket.com/albums/m539/c7phantom/5bb044ad.jpg http://i1130.photobucket.com/albums/m539/c7phantom/e2a8cb66.
Avatar f tn I believe abrasion on my skin causes acne breakouts. Ever since using back scrubbers, acne appeared and left acne scars after disappearing. I totally lost my confidence in dressing up for summer and I cant go shirtless, I'm forced to wear a shirt when I go swimming and its bothersome. My self-esteem has hit rock bottom ever since these deep scars appeared. I never knew skin could do that.
Avatar f tn Hello, These can be due to allergic reaction to the medicine, dry skin or seborrheic dermatitis. Topical antifungals and mild steroids are the usual treatment and combination of the two can be used to treat stubborn patches. You can get them prescribed. Also use mild fragrance free moisturizers immediately after washing your face. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn They look like acne almost. I've been with him for 4 months, but have known him for a long time. So it seems that talking to him about this would be easy. But I'm just scared to embarrass him. I brought it up once and he seemed mad that I had asked. And then I also asked him if he would get tested for STDs...and he acted offended. I don't know what to do...Help, please?

Avatar f tn A clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and treatment of your condition. The marks which are left behind after acne could be due to post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation or scars left behind by your acne lesions. In scarring the collagen in the skin is damaged from inflammation. This results in permanent changes in texture in the skin. It is known that cane can lead to permanent scarring which can be disfiguring.

Avatar f tn The skin is also very discolored, I am of asian origin so my skin is light brown creamy colour, but in the upper inner thighs where the acne is it is completely black, which because of the contrast to the skin on the rest of my body makes it very noticible were I to wear something short. I'm a little overweight and i've noticed when overweight it is worse and it reduces when i'm eating healthier and at a good weight for my body, but still it never quite goes away...
Avatar n tn Hello! I wanted to ask you about the acne on my face skin - it appeared before two years. I've tried to remove it with many and expensive products, but with no progress,only more dry skin. I applied a photo to see how exactly it looks and darken it, to see more clearly. Thanks for the answer in advance!

948349 tn?1294383837 Chances are if you fall back into your old habits your acne will also be just around the corner. SUGARY FOODS ARE BAD FOR THE SKIN! Any food that causes an abrupt release of hormones, or causes an imbalance will cause you to break out. Another thing to do to help your body is to detoxify the body. Every morning when you first wake up, make it into your daily routine is to take a lemon and squeeze the juice out, mix this with water and drink it!

Avatar f tn I also have some discoloration on my cheeks from past acne and the deep ones on the sides of my face arent helping the matter. The marks are red and blotchy, they dont itch/burn or anything. Anyone have any suggestions?

Avatar f tn It's not itchy or painful. It looks like splotchy patches of acne without the skin being raised or bumpy. It fades slightly when I go on birth control, and does not seem to be affected by topical over the counter things I've tried. I've tried lighteners and also redness control type cremes. I've never had acne problems that it could be scaring or discoloration from that. I'm just stumped as to what it is and what I can do to fix it. I'd love to be able to go without wearing foundation.
Avatar n tn If the scars still persist, you could consult your skin specialist about dermabrasion or laser treatment. It would be advisable to consult a skin specialist for your symptoms and a proper clinical examination. Let us know if you need any other information and post us on how you are doing. Regards.
