Avatar n tn Hey doctor. Well I've gone a Laser Skin Removal center to remove a bit of moustache hair I've had and well, the amount of hair has lessened but I left my upper lip skin a paler color than my face. Do you have any idea what happen and how i can return to my normal skin color? I would really appreciate it.
Avatar m tn Hello, Pre-laser tattoo removal methods include dermabrasion, salabrasion (scrubbing the skin with salt), cryosurgery, and excision which is sometimes still used along with skin grafts for larger tattoos. However, laser tattoo removal using Q switched laser is the preferred method nowadays. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn Currently, I do not have full health care coverage (only catastrophic insurance) so it is not feasible for me to go see a dermatologist. I called the laser treatment center who told me that the laser light probably traveled to the mole area. They suggested to keep my eye on it to monitor its healing, and to call them back if it gets worse or seems odd and that they will send me to their dermatologist (free of charge).
Avatar n tn with close examination you can see a tiny whole/indentation in the center. it looks like a very swollen pore. and the skin in the center sometimes peels, which is when i find it becomes the most red. at first i just thought it was acne, but after a few weeks of it not going away i went to see a dermatologist (this was 11 days ago). she said that it's possible that it could have started out as acne, but that it isn't anymore.
Avatar f tn I am hoping someone can help me identify a strange spot on my skin that doesn't seem to disappear. I got it about a month ago...looked like a small scab...so I picked it. Since it hasn't comepletely healed...now the center of the spot is white and the rim is red with tiny bumps. It doesn't hurt or itch. It peels every once in a while. It has gotten a little bigger since the scab occured last month. Do you have any idea what it could be or any advice on how to treat it?
Avatar f tn I am a 21 year old girl, I have 2 flesh colored circles about the diameter size of pencil top erasers on my left inner thigh, both have lines down the center. They have been here for a very long time, years. I didn't think anything of them until recently in which I've become very scared. Why aren't they going away?
Avatar m tn If the infection doesn't go away or keeps coming back, laser hair removal may be an option. Laser treatment destroys the hair follicles so they can't get infected. How can you prevent folliculitis? There are many things you can do to prevent folliculitis or keep it from spreading. Bathe or shower daily with a mild soap. Also, bathe or shower after you exercise and after you work around chemicals. Avoid sharing towels, washcloths, or other personal items.
Avatar f tn Hi, Just wondering if anyone else has had problems with hyperpigmentation of the skin on the face (Melasma)? I have had problems with dark pigmented areas on my face for 10+ years, despite wearing sunscreen religously. However, when researching the hyperpigmentation, I found that a number of people with this problem also have thyroid disorders. I'd love to get some feedback to give to my Endocrinologist. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I realize that bacteria can affect the skin, but I am wondering how it works. If bacteria gets under the skin, can it really take a while to 'work its way out' to the surface? (can it present this way & why?) Would it only come out in hair follicles, or anywhere in the area? what are the "number of things" that could present as small red bumps? I might be over thinking this, but I just want to understand what it was.
Avatar n tn As the spots seemed to spread, so did the mottled, pink/red skin. Soon, all the skin on my legs was affected. When pressed, the places would blanche and my feet would return to normal if I raised my feet. I tried different things, but the color would return as soon as I stopped. I decided to consult my primary care physician. He ran a series of tests for various toxicities and did a 24 hour urine. The results did not provide any clues. Also, he ruled out Raynaud's.
163305 tn?1333672171 She even slipped in a little cosmetic laser work on my face, using as a pretext my diagnosis of an autoimmune skin condition. We've joked that she's going to do my facelift off the cuff, but actually I'd rather pay a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon for that. One more comment about Canada - there are two Canadian families on my block. Because of a drop in real estate prices in the early 90's I was able to buy a house in a pretty ritzy neighborhood, so most of my neighbors have lots of dough.
Avatar n tn After the internal hemorrhoids were all taken care of we scheduled the skin tag removal. My skin tags would regularly swell up and protrude and hurt and really put a damper on my social life as well as my sex life. I was really self-conscious and its hard to have a good time when you're in pain and not feeling 100%. So, I had the procedure yesterday. I went into the room, undressed from waist down, covered up with the sheet, Dr. came in and had me lay on my side.
Avatar n tn that's is most likely not skin cancer at all. it sounds like tinea versicolor possibly. google that term and look at the images. if that's what you have it is a fungal infection that is often times caught in tanning beds. that is absolutely not the only place people catch it, but common. and it is very very common on the chest and back. easily treatable. you'll need a prescription. skin cancer comes by way of scaly sores, weird bumps , lesions etc.
Avatar f tn my spots stoped but discolorations of the skin never disapear. last mounth my doctor recommanded to do IPL in the center of the laser. Not also they didn't disaoear, but also they are increasing. Now it isn't important for me to disapear of age spot, I've just wanted not to be red, because the redness is mor than their place.(my face looks as if I go to sking) todays I use Acnalen 0.1% and ACNE derm(Azelaic acid 20%).These are cream for decreasing redness. Are these OK for my skin?
Avatar m tn I just noticed yesterday that the skin on the outer corners of my eyes are kind of loose. I could see the side of my eyeballs from just looking in the mirror, and it's freaking me out a little bit. I was wondering what might have caused this, and how can i make the skin fit my eye again?
Avatar n tn ) to see if I could get it taken care of. I had read online that using laser treatment to remove it was probably the easiest procedure as it keeps the bleeding to a minimum and healing is relatively quick. However, once I saw the doctor she told me that unless it was really large, swollen, painful and otherwise causing additional medical problems it wasn't big enough for her to recommend that it be removed.
Avatar f tn ive researched it but cant seem to figure out what it is and now im worried becouse it seems to be spreading but only on the skin in and around my tattoo. these spots look like if you had a mosquito bite that you never stopped scratching. my skin around it seems to feel a little thicker and kind of numb. they are flat and not bumpy. anyone have anything like this or any idea about it.
Avatar f tn I just had a skin tag removal done yesterday after 10-12 years of intermittent hemorrhoid issues. It became too uncomfortable to simply just deal with any longer, particularly after an extremely painful thrombosis. I have been going to the Center for Colorectal Health and am pleased for the most part. I read so many horror stories online that I was actually really nervous going in. Thankfully, I came across Mummymico's post and it really put me at ease.
Avatar n tn One is on the top of my right middle finger, between the first and second joints, the other is on top of the joint on my left thumb, positioned slightly off center. They continuously produce dead skin that just grows and grows until I either pick it away, or take nail clippers to them to cut them down and make them flush with the rest of the skin on my fingers, this lasts for a couple days, then the dead skin just grows back again, right over where I clipped it.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar n tn if you have food or pollen allergies it could be in your skin care routine. Hope I could be of some help because this forum helped me and made me feel better knowing I wasn't alone :) Thanks All!
