How to get rid of fungal nail infection? Is there any good treatment for this infection? I took antibiotic Lamisil for several months and use creams and lacquers. Nothing help. I have it on toe nails and on my finger nails appear dark thin marks. It does
Be sure it's fungus: You should have your nails cultured by a podiatrist to confirm it is actually fungus. Other conditions can cause darkening and thickening of nails and some, like melanoma, are very serious. Also, how long was Lamisil (terbinafine) treatment? For toenails, you need to take it daily for 3 months and then wait an additional 6+ months for clear nail to replace the infected nail. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have fungus under some of my toe nails. Are there alternative treatments (home) to get rid of it?
Maybe?: The reason you hear so many different treatments for toenail fungus is because there is no perfect, sure-fire treatment that works 100% of the time. I've seen vaporub work, as well as other natural oil remedies, but rarely. You can also try laser therapy, antifungal creams, paints, or even oral medications if your doctor deems you healthy enough to take them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: There are many ways to treat the scars, once the acne is under control. These treatments include lasers, peels and microdermabrasion. I like using a non-ablative laser known as fraxel. It works great for these areas and also resurfaces the surrounding skin improving the overall quality. A plastic surgeon or dermatologist will take a look at your skin type and determine the best approach. ...Read more
Get real Rx: Being a young man is hard enough without pimples and even harder if somebody has told you "home remedies / natural" is better. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't done the job, your physician can write for a retinoic acid derivative (great if there's lot of blackheads) &/or topical clindamycin; you're likely eventually to need a systemic antibiotic & if severe, consider accutane. Good luck. ...Read more
Dark circles - eyes: Dark circles under the eyes can be a result of allergies and the resulting congestion in the sinuses that cause a back up of blood in the venous system in the face. Try some allergy medicines and decongestants to see if that helps you. Sleeping on a slight incline may help with "drainage" of the area too- one case where gravity is actually good! ...Read more

Treatment for hair follicles: is there any recent treatment? I use the laser treatment but the hair bumps comes back after some time
Folliculitis : I think you mean folliculitis which is an infection of the hair follicles. But you mention a laser which sounds like laser hair removal. At any rate, removing the follicle will help the infection but you need a topic antibiotic as well. Ees (erythromycin ethyl succinate) pads work well. Make sure you are not allergic to something you are putting on your skin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
