I had scleroderma and it left a scar that resembles a burn/discoloration. I sometimes get depressed due to color. What's the best cream to be normal?

Morphea: It sounds like you had the localized form (also called morphea). Retin-a (tretinoin) cream will sometimes help with those types of scars, though it is an off-label use, and improvement is slow. There are plastic surgery options too, depending on where the scar is located. A dermatologist can help you decide on the best course of action. ...Read more

You : You do sound depressed. Are your parents aware that you tried to kill yourself last year ? If not, please tell them right away. Have you been treated by a therapist ? If not, it is important that you get help. Using drugs and cutting and burning yourself to distract yourself from your pain are not healthy coping skills. If you are feeling like you want to kill your self right now, please let your parents, a guidance counselor, a responsible adult know so that you can get immediate help. If you are thinking right now that you want to kill yourself and you already have a psychiatrist, psychologist or therapist - please call your provider without delay. Depression is associated with feeling low emotionally. You may feel sad, angry, irritable, afraid. Your energy level and drive to do things may be low. You might sleep alot or sleep very little. Your appetite may drop or increase. Losing pleasure in life's activities can also be a sign of depression. Regardless of your diagnosis, it is clear that you are in a lot of emotional pain. There is excellent treatment available. Please do not lose hope. ...Read more

Using an acne pen gave me a very depressed red rash which looks like a skin burn. Its just been a day; what shall i try to cure it?

Acne pen: You may have had an allergic reaction or simply an intense response. Stop using the pen. Since it is only one day, i'd watch and see how the lesion progresses. If symptomatic, you can use a topical cortisone cream. Best, of course, is to see dr if problem persists or gets worse. ...Read more
