Dr. Keegan Duchicela

Cause of headache: The best way to tackle a headache is to figure out what's causing it in the first place - is it a migraine, from not eating breakfast this am, from skipping a dose of a medicine, from not getting enough sleep? There can be many reasons. For the run of the mill dull headache, i usually like to try some Ibuprofen and/or tylenol (acetaminophen) first and see how it feels after an hour or so.

What is cause: It is necessary to determine cause of the dispigmentation in order to properly treat it. Many people try over the counter products and peels performed by salon and spa personnel. A visit to a specialist should help get you on the road to a more even complexion.

It really depends on: the cause of the hyperpigmentation. If this is melasma there is no cure, but sun avoidance and lightening agents will help. Also you can see dermatologist for peels or lasers. Other causes of pigmentation have other treatment options. See dermatologist for diagnosis
