Not easy to achieve: The first thing you need to do is get the consultation of a dermatologist and a plastic surgeon who also offer laser and chemical peel options. There are ways to achieve this, including prescription creams, laser treatments, and chemical peels, but they are costly, take time, and can be painful.

I see myself pale I have kidney stones can this be affecting my complexion?

Maybe: Your other question indicated light-headedness, and if you are pale as well, i'm hoping that you are not having some serious bleeding from the stone or somewhere else, or have become anemic. Pain itself can decrease cardiac output by a vagal mechanism and make you pale and light-headed. Today we have lots for kidney stones and i hope it works for you. ...Read more

My 41 year old daughter has been on methadone for 7 years and she has lost all her finger nails difficult time urinating she looks very pale almost gray and is not ini good physical health who can help me.

Its not methadone: She may have any of a number of health problems. The most common are hepatitis c, hepatitis b and HIV (aids). She may also be using other drugs, particularly methamphetamine, which can cause many problems. Or, it may be totally unrelated. Your daughter needs a good medical evaluation, but only she can decide to do that. You can attend alanon meetings which can help you understand her addiction. ...Read more

Need ABG....: you need to get an arterial blood gas test (ABG) to see what your oxygen level is. There are many factors that could render a pulse ox test inaccurate. In order to get an accurate measure of your oxygen level, and to see if the pulse ox test is accurate or not, have your doctor order an ABG. The test can be done as an outpatient. Good luck!! ...Read more

My 16 yr old daughter just showed me that both of her little toes have turned pale grey and hurt. What to do??

Pale grey skin..: ...suggests a lack of oxygenated blood. Skin which is getting a good blood supply is nice and pink. This requires immediate medical attention. She may have a problem with the circulation in the foot, such a Raynaud's disease. I presume she has not been in the cold: frostbite. Other inflammatory conditions or even breathing problems could contribute. See doc now! Good wishes:) ...Read more
