Facial skin abrasion treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Facial skin abrasion treatment


Avatar n tn There are some areas where i peel off large pieces of dry brown skin and under it is smooth pink skin (like under a scab) and in some spots the skin is bright red (doesnt look like new skin). Also there are a couple of dime sized spots where scabs (clear scabs, not like dried blood) have formed and under it are soft pink areas sensitive to the touch (again definitely not new skin). I cannot tell how severe these burns are.
Avatar f tn there is a spot on my nose that i've rubbed raw washing, trying to get these "things" out of my pores. these are not whiteheads, nor blackheads. these are clusters of white or fleshy hard and sticky plugs-- not filled with anything, but they stick straight out from the pores. They are not bumps. If I rub the area w/ a towel they do not rub off at all. I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin.
Avatar n tn Curiously, my facial skin and skin tone looks like that of someone in her early 30s. The elasticity in my face is still there but my arms can be pinched and stay pinched due to breakdown of elastin fibres. As I see it, there are two things happening: loss of subcutaneous fat (associated with menopause) and loss of elasticity associated with the aging process and particularly glycation. It's frustrating as all h*ll.
Avatar n tn The cause is often times over-moisturizing the sensitive eye-area skin or using facial moisturizer around the eye area. The eye area (skin) is very delicate and should be treated with more care than the remaining facial skin. I see these bumps appearing from time to time and I use a lighter eye moisturizer. They eventually clear up. Be careful to not further abuse the area with harsh treatments.
Avatar f tn You can tell its dead hair because it doesn't pull the skin from the razor. 3 weeks later, my face is very smooth! I only had one treatment. I will say though that i did experience some swelling in my face and redness due to the heat of the laser. However, it cleared up in about 3 - 5 days. I have no regrets. I love the results. I have had my legs lasered and they look great. I plan to laser other parts of my body as well.
Avatar m tn Muscle still burning and some areas feel as if the skin is missing like a deep abrasion. Saw Neuro for nerve conduction test which was normal, and Neuro left it at that with no follow up. My Primary Care provider then wanted and MRI for muscle burning which shows results below at bottom of thread, Neurologist states the symptoms I was having doensn't appear to be related to the ares which are noted in MRI results, but that I may have Neurosarcoid as well, which to me means they are related?
Avatar n tn I think that the methol makes the area feel cool and a bit tingly (and the alcohol hurts if you have broken skin) so you feel something else other than the itch. The aloe helps heal the skin. The salicylic acid exfoliates the flaky skin and lightens it. I am not a doctor, and I know that this product is intended for facial use, but it worked for me. I do not use it a couple of times a day anymore. Now I use it a couple of times a week.
Avatar n tn I am searching for a mild facial cleanser simply to remove my make up in the evenings and moisturize my skin. Prescriptives has discontinued their line, which is a major bummer. The Aloe facial cleanser was perfect, gentle, and always had people asking me what I used for my skin. I have not found a good replacement yet, and I am so disappointed that Neutrogena products have this many people experiencing these problems. I am 36 and simply want to maintain healthy skin.
363110 tn?1340924019 I have lately been exfoliating way to much just to keep them from looking so bad but my skin is getting very dry - Is there any treatment for this - has anyone out there had success in treating this?
Avatar n tn The ONLY times it has completely cleared was when I would get a cortizone injection in my bad shoulder as well as the one time I was put on a Prednisone treatment for an eye infection. That's it. I live with it. But I would like to know if anyone has an idea as to what brings it on in the first place. Why, out of the blue, does it appear? I have no allergies nor exposures past or present to chemicals or the like. Any ideas? Any treatments that work? Thanks!
Avatar m tn My palm feels like it's burning, my fingers feel swollen but they are not, my finger tips are numb, my whole hand feels tight like I'm wearing a glove that's too small, the back of my hand feels supersensitive, and the underside of my forearm feels like one big abrasion on the skin. I'm on 2700mg/day of Neurontin. I tried going higher with no additional effect. I tried going lower and the sensations were a lot worse.
Avatar n tn Sitting on hard chairs aggravates the symptoms, especially the burning, clammy sensation in the upper thighs and scrotum (sometimes it feels like a blow torch is burning my scrotum, although skin remains normal in appearance). Possible related symptom is a slight but constant numbness in my right thigh above my knee and an occasional dull pain in the inside of my right thigh. No discharges, sores or rashes ever presented (other than for an occasional pimple).
Avatar n tn techno72, in your other comments on hpvfaq.org you mentioned that harsh skin abrasion seems to be a factor in the transmission. The day I performed that fateful act I had lip chapping and had put vaseline on. My upper lip was especially bothersome and I scrubbed away a lining of dead skin. Perhaps this is why my upper lip is "infected" and my lower lip isn't, but it seems a majority of online commenters with this complaint are similar in only the upper lip being affected.
Avatar n tn I notice that when running, sweat is sometimes highly irritant and causes my skin to really burn. I would say my skin has a tendency to dryness, with very mild eczema. I think this is behind the root cause of my eyelid problem (rather than any blocking of oil secretion ducts around the eyelids as with blepharitis. I read the following web page which had some useful information about dry skin, particularly the issue about a lack of specific nutrients.
Avatar n tn I'm interested in whether you and your partner were trying a new type of condom, diaphragm, lubricant oil, sex toy, or anything else that came in contact with your vaginal vault in the area that you are describing -- then you might have had an allergic reaction locally to this. (In which case, obviously, antibiotics wouldn't help you.) It could also be caused simply by abrasion (if you and your partner were having "rough" sex or repeatedly throughout the day.
Avatar m tn I also have extremely cold sensations on my skin. Mainly my face and the backs of my arms and hands, but today I had the sensation on my thighs and fronts of my shins. It is like a freezing cold ' sunburn'. I am aware how this sounds, as I am talking about cranial nerve damage caused by a dental implant, but perhaps the vagus nerve can be affected too and I know it originates in the head and innervates the whole body.
288415 tn?1231634102 No running in ears but still maddening external itching. Crusty **** can be scraped off the itchy area. Its like dried onion skin. C'mon I know I am not the only one with this ****. Help!
Avatar n tn Vulvar Dystrophy A vulvar dystrophy is abnormal skin on the vulva. The skin can be too thin (lichen sclerosus), too thick (hyperplasia), or a mixture of both." I am obviously not a doctor and am in no way diagnosing any conditions, but maybe you could research these further and seek out a dermatologist or a gynecologist with some experience in this area.
Avatar n tn Yes, I do have fair, sensitive skin. I never tan and always burn. I have to be careful about any products that I use on my body. I can't use tampons or soap in my vaginal region, because of the sensitivity. Urination when I have one of the lesions can bring tears to my eyes and sometime it is difficult to sit down.
147426 tn?1317269232 A spinal lesion would have to be very large (and obvious on the MRI) for this to be MS. They would have to have a different set of lesions on their brainstem for the facial numbness - again in the "exact" same spots on each side. We hear people with this type of complaint frequently. What this type of pattern suggests is something "systemic." The nerves throughout the body are affected and irritated.
Avatar n tn I can put my hand to my throat and grab my hyoid between thumb and forefinger at any time, and feel both back ends right under the skin. They are just about exactly as wide as the vertebrae behind them, and they seem to bump up and down along the muscles surrounding the spine as I swallow. Without pulling forward, I can twist the hyoid from side to side, causing one end or the other to protrude from the side of my neck far enough to get a fingertip behind the protruding end.
Avatar f tn Will I be able to go for a facial or will that further bruise the nerves? Any advise would be much appreciated. Thanks!
