Hi doctor! 
How effective is neostrata glycolic acid face wash (18%) for grade 2 acne scars?  I underwent 30% salicylic acid peel thrice. Not much use. So if the face wash is effective then Please suggest a regimen too.
Thank you

Forget this stuff: Nothing you can do on your own is going to touch the acne scars. I'm sorry your acne wasn't treated as it should have been, but you do have the option of getting seen by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who may offer laser work, filler, or microsurgery. Best wishes. ...Read more

You may want to assess how much each of them can understand/how much you'd like them to know & sit w/them individually. Allow time for processing & let them ask questions.

My son is 2yrs and he is likely to be under weight. What I can give him to eat?

Healthy choices: Has your doctor actually said that your son is underweight? Most children at this age don't eat a lot all the time, and they get picky about what they like. Offer a variety of healthy foods, especially ones he can feed himself, and don't worry too much about how much he eats at each meal. Offer healthy snacks when needed as well. Kids will usually eat what they need. Don't make meals a battle. ...Read more

I am 160cms height and 76kgs in weight.please I need to lose 2kgs per week, please help me with diet and excercise.

Your BMI is 29.3: which is considered "overweight." However, you can't SAFELY lose 2 kg a week. If you succeed in losing that much weight, much of that weight will be water and much of the rest will be muscle. That doesn't get you closer to being at a healthy weight. Be skeptical about any diet plan that claims otherwise. Dr. Anne ...Read more
