Avatar f tn My baby had a low brth weight but everything else was fine. However my baby now has different skin tones with a distinct dark skinned body and a light skinned face. Could this have been caused by those creams I used and if so what can I do to correct it?
Avatar n tn The treatments vary from melanin blocking agents combined with topical medications such as Retin A which causes the body to exfoliate the skin to rid the body of the hyperpigmentation while prohibiting new melanin production to laser treatments. The treatments wholly depend upon your needs and skin type. For standard non-hormone induced hyperpigmentations Hydroquinone usually reduces or removes hyperpigmentations very effectively. It is a bleaching agent.
Avatar f tn My skins alot lighter on the parts of my body that are not exposed to the sun as much such as my upper thigh area. I tried some skin lightening creams and got no results. I also heard vitamin c lightens skin is this true? So I was hopeing to seek professional advice on which products I could use and what sunblock is most effective or any medical procedures. Thank you!
Avatar n tn Hi, Hyperpigmentation Removal treatments are used to eradicate darkened areas of the skin which may result from hormones, sun damage, injuries, skin-type characteristics, medications and more. Hyperpigmentation lesions can be anything from melasma/cholasma often attributed to pregnancy or hormonal imbalances to freckles. There are several creams availale over the counter. They are Hydroquinone 2-4%, Creams containing Azelaic acid or Kojic acid and also Vit A based ointment called Tretinoin.

Line I said, it works for me, but then..., I am very very white! So, that's what I do to deal with vitilago. I don't know what other people might do, or might be able to reccommend as I do not know any other individuals, (who are white), who have this type of condition.
Avatar f tn What would you recommend for a black male 18 who is trying to lighten and even out the skin tone on the whole body
Avatar n tn If tyou are a dark-skinned individual then it is difficult to treat the whole body and reduce pigmentation. There are skin lightening agents available which can be used on areas of hyperpigmentation, but these will be only on some parts due to some predisposing factors. They are Hydroquinone 2-4%, Creams containing Azelaic acid or Kojic acid and also Vit A based ointment called Tretinoin.
Avatar f tn Hi. Lots of companies make products which are indicated for sensitized acneic skin. Some of the best are: La Roche-Posay, Eucerin, Avene and Lutsine Hydrafnia. I use Estee Lauder's Sparkling Clean cleanser and toner and their Clear Difference oil-control hydrator morning and night. It depends what you want the lightening cream for. If you want to fade acne scars or uneven pigmentation, use Clinique's Even Better Skin Tone Corrector, which is non-irritating and suitable for all ethnicities.

Avatar n tn Also certain areas of skin darkening is partly due to your genetic make-up.The flaking skin is due to the dryness of the skin in the area. The active ingredient in skin lightening products is called hydoquinone. The maximum prescription strength is 4% hydroquinone, which contains twice the amount of active ingredient as over-the-counter bleaches. Some hydroquinone products contain sunscreens or sunblock, so you don’t have to bother with applying a separate sun protection product.
Avatar f tn Hello, Before deciding the treatment we have to find out what is causing this skin lightening or hypopigmentation. It can be due to post inflammatory, fungal skin infection or vitiligo. Vitiligo is a pigmentation disorder in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin are destroyed. As a result, white patches appear on the skin in different parts of the body.

Avatar m tn Hi! I was wondering if you could help me with a problem I've been having for a few months now. About five months ago, in April, I tested positive for having the HSV virus through my OBGYN. I had gone in for a pap-smear and for possible hormonal imbalance blood testing that I thought might have been causing small bumps on my lower buttocks/thigh area. The bumps were small-dime sized and itched, especially if I sat on one wrong.
Avatar m tn Dear Sir, I am applying electric current to my body regularly for last 7 months. I started form a voltage source of 5 volts and know I use a voltage source of 130 volts. I feel more energetic and sexualy strong when I do this. My question is that what are impacts of doing this on my body in short and long term. Should I continue doing this.
Avatar m tn Hello, For the past year or so I can see that my face skin looks really unhealthy. When I look in the mirror, my face looks kind of dirty. The rest of my body skin is clear but my face has small dark-brown scars, a few (7-10) black dots. Most noticeable are the dark patches (about 1-2 inches) on my cheeks. IS there any way of clearing this and having a clear and normal skin? btw, I am 25 years old male. I am british asian so have brown skin.
Avatar m tn If the bleach is left on your skin for an inordinately long period of time, it can cause pigment lightening and permanent tissue damage. What the bleach has done is pigment lightening or post inflammatory hypopigmentation. The pigmentation may return but it may take months or years depending on the intensity of contact and the part of the body. Secondly since the white spots are on the chest it is important to rule out pityriasis versicolor as well.
Avatar n tn My son, 29 years of age, has dark patches that started just on his side, but are now spreading all over his body. He is half Italian, and dark skinned anyway, but these large patches of skin are noticably darker. They appear and feel somewhat raised, as if the skin is thicker there, but no itching or rash. Any idea what this could be??
Avatar n tn At this point, you may apply Vitamin E cream over the area at least thrice a day. This has skin softening and lightening qualities. A gentle Vitamin C exfoliant may also be used to remove dead skin which may also contribute to the dark color. Avoid prolonged sun exposure. Papaya, licorice and cucumber are some natural ingredients that have skin lightening properties.
Avatar n tn i am having difficulty deciding what cream is suitable for my skin color, i use to be very dark but i believe it is as a result of the creams i was using at childhood, so i tried lightening creams which have really made me fairer but resulted in dark knuckles, knees and elbows. i am currently using fair and white skin perfector but the black areas seem to be getting more dark. I want to maintain this color i have achieved without the dark knuckles etc.
Avatar f tn The reason I had to have fusion is because the disks blew out and I was having severe left arm pain and numbness and the pain was so bad I can only describe it as 'lightening' like being struck by lightening down my left arm. I have permanent pain and numbness issues now in my left arm. On top of that, separately I have a low spine issue around the sacrum/SI joint on my right. I have right hip pain and numbness and it's now going down to my right foot.
Avatar n tn For discolorations of the skin you could ask your skin doctor to prescribe a healthy topical lotion for gently lightening the skin.
Avatar m tn It's really depressing because no matter how great of a shape I am in, it's difficult to be fully confident when showing different parts of my body. Is there a vitamin, mineral or a food that I can eat that decreases the chance of scarring. Also, I have been using shea and cocoa butter for 11 years and there has been some lightening, but very little. Please help!
Avatar n tn I won't take anything that can have that much effect on my skin, body or mood. Not worth it, there are other ways... I don't know why the health professionals seem to know so little or be totally unconcerned with all of the side effects....
Avatar m tn Hello, The Mayo Clinic reports there have been reports of skin discoloration of either lightening or darkening, and facial redness after use of Accutane , but the incidence of occurrence of these side effects is unknown. What you are having are side effects of the drug Accutane and when you are taking Accutane, you should avoid going out in the sun.
Avatar m tn We did a lot of clothed grinding on my bed, which during the course of these actions, caused one layer on the skin of my penis to chafe off near the glans. The skin on near my glans looked like fresh dermis (not the outer layer of skin) after getting a nasty scratch. I wasn't aware of this yet; so she proceeded to perform oral sex on me. I don't know the extent of this girl's testing history; so I am concerned that she may have something like HIV.
Avatar m tn Many guys like you want to become fair and it can be dangerous if you are using skin products that may have some adverse effects on your body.
