Getting Rid Of Hemorrhoids
Unfortuneately not: There is no easy way to get rid of melasma. The goal is control. Combination therapy is typical. Peels, topicals and laser treatments may be used. Daily spf use cannot be overstated. Consult with a cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist that specializes in melasma and other pigment disorders. ...Read more
Its the valves: Varicose veins are the result of defective valves. The valves within the veins have failed prematurely, and once the valves are failed, they are always failed. Exercise will not help the valves recover. In order to rid yourself of varicose veins, you will need some form or intervention, either laser, radiofrequency, sclerotherapy, surgery, or a combination of these. See a vein specialist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Acne: Don't wash your face with body soap. Also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. Try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena or something with benzoyl peroxide. Following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt. You can try to prevent spreading bacteria onto your face by not touching your face, washing your phone, etc. ...Read more
Scientific Rx: Two weeks trial of topical benzoyl peroxide alone. This clears most mild acne. If not clear, physician's office visit. Options may include topical retinoic acid derivative, topical clindamycin, the oral contraceptive pill for a woman who can take it, and/or an appropriate systemic antibiotic right for the patient. Tough cases referred for isotretinoin. Manage as a chronic disease. Good luck. ...Read more
Not necessarily: "rid" but it can help minimize the appearance of cellulitis, which is related to the fatty tissue right underneath the skin.

Warm compress: A sty or"stye" is a moderately inflamed "sweat ducts" in the eyelid. I tell my patients to get a damp wash cloth and pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Test it on your wrist to make sure it's not too hot. Place warm compress the closed eyelid for about5-10 minutes and re-heating as necessary. 4-6 x a day. If it does not get better in a week or gets worse go to your eye doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sclero, laser, strip: Depends on the varicose veins. Very large veins need to be treated with vein stripping or evlt or evrt (endovascular laser therapy or endovascular radio freq therapy). Small veins can be treated with sclerotherapy. Very small veins can be treated with a yag laser. Loose weight, avoid pregnancy, avoid prolonged standing and choose your parents carefully....Ie, nothing works well for prevention! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Prescription Rx: Get with your personal physician now. You'll use topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day and perhaps additional medication such as a topical or systemic antibiotic. Anything else will disappoint you. This is the 21st century and you have a right to be free of acne. Best wishes. ...Read more
Stye / Chalazia: Heat definitely helps styes to resolve, but may temporarily increase swelling. Sometimes if it is tender, you might have to use a cool compress or ice on the area to help reduce inflammation. Ophthalmic ointment antibiotics may work better than drops. Generally, a warm compress (a reasonably warm clean wash rag) is placed over the closed eye for 5-10 minutes a few times a day. ...Read more
Time: Milia occur when a substance from the skin (keratin) gets trapped under the outermost layer of skin, forming a cyst. Milia can also occur when other debris or damage clogs the pores in the skin. The good news is that milia are harmless, and will eventually go away. Picking at them with a needle can leave a scar. If you really need them removed urgently, i would recommend a visit to the doctor. ...Read more
