Laser skin burns

Common Questions and Answers about Laser skin burns


Avatar m tn 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. What was the degree of involvement of skin in your case? 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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. 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.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn I peeled off the burned skin and now it is pink skin how can i get rid of tht btw its on my cheek.
Avatar f tn The skin on my hands is beginning to get the coffee granule look, the skin on my arms is getting bubbly (like the freckles are little bubbles, and the skin on my chest is looking very burnt. There are six rectangle head marks which are a greeny colour (I can't see any freckles in them) This morning my jumper brushed on on of the rectangles and a top layer of the skin came off there. Underneath the skin stings and is red but has a whitish centre.
Avatar f tn Just be sure to choose a physician with good and extensive training in Laser therapy as laser when not applied well may cause burns.
Avatar f tn I have sort of a skin tag inside my mouth on the side. My dentist wanted to lop it off but I said no because it didn't bother me. But now it has a black dot on it. Anybody know what that is?
Avatar f tn Silly me attempted to use the Freeze Away/Liquid Nitrogen approach to clearing skin bumps that appear as warts on my inner thighs. Well, I had the treatment applied before in my dermotologist's office so I attempted to do so myself to try to avoid making a doctor's appointment because I thought I was applying the same treatement. Well...come to find out, it turned red, just as the liquid nitrogen did the first time I had it done but THIS time, dark marks remain 1 month later.
Avatar m tn How long does it take a second or third degree burn to heal completely? I got a burn last year when my pants caught fire. The size of the burn it's about the size of a quarter. Now, after months my burn looks red underneath my skin. I'm just curious how long it takes for the skin to recover completely?
Avatar n tn 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 an Over-The-Counter remedy containing aloe vera and a light moisturizer or a dusting powder to relieve chaffing. You can apply silver sulfadiazine (1% cream) on the skin except face and see if it helps.
Avatar n tn razors, electric little machines, waxes, lotions, 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 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.
Avatar f tn Otherwise you can go in for glycolic peals, laser treatments and pressure dressings. Severe scarrings may need skin grafting by a plastic surgeon. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn I did Co2 laser after two months of scar rivision . The day after I have done Co2 laser in wound . I went to message parlour drunk . My skin was bleeding the day before and that day also it was bleeding but too much small . I have encounter with a parlour girl. She rubbed my body and face. and we kiss each other and were very tight and close ( she may have been rubbed several times in my skin). But no sex . Risk of HIV transmission throuhg my injured part.
Avatar m tn I used Nair on my face it says on the bottle i could just not near the eye and i developed burns that turned out to be skin discoloration on my face so the pigment is damaged and cannot tan. I have had this for 5 months and all the creams I've used does not help me get back my color.
Avatar f tn Thank you. I was told that "more spots (laser spots/burns) may be necessary in inactive PDR due to macular edema or lipid leakage.
Avatar f tn I was recently in an accident and was severely burned over 30% of my body and had to have skin grafts on my arms and legs. Fortunately, the burns to my face and neck were mostly 1st degree with a small area of 2nd degree that required little to no care and no scarring. However, 6 weeks after the accident, after my face was already completely healed, I grew some bumps and my cheeks grew red.

Avatar n tn I have 2 pointed pimples at the base of the penis on the skin. I don't have any puss or excretion from the penis. When I wash my penis , it burns a bit at the base of the penis. What is it and what treatment ?
Avatar f tn 1. NV usually requres more laser spots. 2. How many they need varies from individual to individual 3. THere is no minimum and there is no maximum. Some eyes have had over 3000 spots n them. 4. The laser power varies also. Burns are usually "medium" 5. The procedure can be painful and some time anesthesia is given. 6. More spots may be necessary in inactive PDR due to macular edema or lipid leakage 7. # of spots varry 8.
Avatar m tn Typically, seborrheic dermatitis presents with scaly, flaky, itchy, and red skin. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates and is aggravated by sweating and humidity. It is related to the proliferation of normal skin habitant Malassezia – a yeast, which produces toxic substances that infect and irate the skin. Treatment of rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis are different.

Avatar m tn So after almost curing all my burns, i just got one yesterday morning when i woke up. an open sore below my lip, that burns when i touch it. So i applied lotion but I'm getting fed up because on my jaw, one formed during the day, and my neck has a lil slightly burnin sensative spot. I haven't seen a doctor about this because I thought i'd do some research before paying but I feel like it'll just keep reoccuring. 2 weeks and it's all been on my face. Thank you for your time.
Avatar n tn If so, there are a number of treatments available. One very popular remedy has been laser skin resurfacing which helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, lines and hyper pigmentation surrounding the eyes and mouth. It can also be used to treat areas on the cheeks. Laser resurfacing does not cause as much discomfort, bruising, scaring or bleeding compared to other cosmetic surgery procedures.
Avatar m tn The days after sex the burns/cuts turn into flakey white rough patches that flake off. After a week, the skin is normal again, and started right back up after sex... It is killing our sex life. (I should mention that if I spread her lips wide open, it seems to drastically decrease the sharp feeling, leading me to think it is a mechanical cause of pain and not bacteral/fungal). Anyone else had any problems with hair stubble on the labia majora that scratches too much?
Avatar f tn Otherwise you can go in for glycolic peals, laser treatments and pressure dressings. Severe scarrings may need skin grafting by a plastic surgeon. 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.
