Maybe not laser: Large varicose veins after pregnancy might be able to be treated with endovenous laser or rf, but often times these veins are too twisted and close to the surface of the skin in order for laser to be used safely. I would see a board certified phlebologist for a complete vein evaluation, including ultrasound vein mapping, in order to know how to best go about treating the vein problem you have. ...Read more

Here are some...: Whenever possible adverse effects from a drug is suspected, stopping & reusing such drug with caution is the only way to prove if it should be blamed.

I have dark marks on my face that I just can't get rid of. They are mostly near both sides of my nose due to wearing glasses. What can I do?

Ecchymosis: If the marks are in fact due to constant pressure from the glasses, you will need to consider changing your glasses, using contacts or giving your skin as much rest as possible and changing the rest position of the glasses often. You can also try applying Arnica lotion you can get from health store (GNC, Whole foods, etc.) since it may be due to ecchymosis rather than PIH. ...Read more

Veins: The bulging veins use the are as the result of blood flow in the venous system going backwards down the leg. To adequately treat this a venous Doppler ultrasound should be done to determine if there is a vein that is abnormal, and then treatment should be directed at the underlying abnormal vein, not of the vein of the foot. ...Read more

Hello sir iam around 24 years old and my face has blackheads and because of removing it i have holes there how can i make it normal?and also my lips h

See a dermatologist: "Blackheads" are not dirt. They are comedones [sebum plugs] in blocked oil glands- open to air. Oxidized sebum is black. It is OK to pinch them out. Pitted skin is not your fault. The scars are not caused by squeezing. You can begin therapy with a retinoid such as tretinoin or adapalene gel. When you control the acne the skin will gradually heal. Most people need nothing more. ...Read more

Folliculitis: This is called folliculitis and is caused by constant shaving. There could be irritation or infection of the hair follicles. This can be treated with topical or oral antibiotics. Cleaning or changing the razor frequently also helps. If it keeps recurring despite using clean razors, then a longer term solution would be laser hair removal. ...Read more

How do I get rid of veracose veins and spider veins? I am a runner and veracose veins/spider veins run in my family. I have recently gotten them around my knees and i don't want my legs to look like my mothers. What do I do?

Have a vein eval.: There is a strong hereditary component to varicose veins and the pounding from running in the presence of refluxing valves will most likely worsen the vein problem. You should be seen by a vein specialist and have a reflux venous ultrasound to diagnose the location of the refluxing valves and help to formulate a plan of treatment. Once the valves are sealed you should be able to resume running. ...Read more

Combo treatment. : If you have plantar fasciitis, and hurt most with the first few steps in the morning, the more you can do together, the better: #1: supportive shoes. #2: firm inserts or orthotics. #3: oral antiinflammatories (check with your doctor). #4: stretching your foot and calf. #5: icing (10 min at a time). You may also need physical therapy or cortisone injections, or eswt if available in your area. ...Read more
