Evaluation : without seeing the area of concern, it would be impossible to give an accurate assessment. Suggest you visit your primary care doctor or dermatologist for an annual skin assessment, so they can evaluate your concern in person. ...Read more

Carbs most readily: stored as fat; e.g. the cereal & fruits are high carb; most readily converted by liver into triglycerides & stored as fat. To ? body fat, you need to burn it, i.e. go into ketosis, a state of burning fat, not storing fat.

I mixed smoothie with apples, grapes, berries, raspberries, romaine spinach, almonds, and flax seeds. Will this help my skin? & do I drink it 2 a day?

I mixed smoothie with apples, grapes, berries, raspberries, romaine spinach, almonds, and flax seeds. Will this help my skin? & do I drink it 2 a day?

Maybe (not) . . .: I'm not aware of any randomized double blind placebo controlled trials demonstrating any benefit from a smoothie as described above in an adequate sized population of otherwise similar men & women. Nor am I aware of any dosing recommendations. However, I'm sure it's better than eating junk food! ...Read more

24 y/o F Dxd w/ RRMS. Arm in sun skin turned hot, red, & itchy. Same thing on my chin later but a hive was visible. Super sun sensitive? Allergy?

 24 y/o F Dxd w/ RRMS.  Arm in sun skin turned hot, red, & itchy. Same thing on my chin later but a hive was visible. Super sun sensitive? Allergy?

Not simple: Typically there is not a relationship between RRMS and allergy. However, taking immune modulating drugs (e.g. prednisone) could change that (for better or worse). Are you implying you had symptoms only on one side (one arm) while exposure was bilateral? If so, you might be revealing an autonomic inequality, which might relate to your MS. (PS. If image appears with this answer - not mine.) ...Read more

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger.His balls became red after poop & painful on touch.What should I do?

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger.His balls became red after poop & painful on touch.What should I do?

Possible irritation: Poop can often be very irritating to the skin. If the redness is limited to his scrotum following his poop, that is probably the cause. I would wash him with mild soap and water and use a moisture barrier such as vaseline or desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) on the red areas. If the irritation persists, plan on seeing his pediatrician in the morning. ...Read more

I have light Brown Asian skin, recently I went in the sun, jogging + got pigment marks on my skin, now using Sun block but when will marks fade?

I have light Brown Asian skin, recently I went in the sun,  jogging + got pigment marks on my skin, now using Sun block but when will marks fade?

Yes, with time: It will take time, may be even a few months for the pigmentation from sun exposure to lighten up. Use sun screen as you have started doing and if feasible, keep the area covered to avoid incidental sun exposure. I would recommend that you take supplemental vitamin D3 at a does of about 2000 units/day. ...Read more
