Good day, i get bitten by mosquitos a lot and i tend to itch them thereby leaving scars all over my arms and leg. How do I get rid of the scars?

Bite marks!: Firstly, don't get bitten! use a lotion with 100% deet, long pants and shirts which are lightweight and put a rubber band arountd your ankles to keep out bugs. The marks left from your scratching will fade with time, if you stop picking at them. Use of topical otc Hydrocortisone will often help the itching and healing. See your doctor if problems persist. ...Read more

How do I get rid of stretch marks on and around my arms? What should I use to completely get rid of them?

Sorry: Stretch marks are tears in the skin cause by weight gain. They can be covered up, but not improved by creams and lotions. The only possibly effective therapy is cosmetic plastic surgery, but that's a big step for a non-health and non-life threatening problem. ...Read more

Unusual: Although enough people may develop pimple-like itchy bumps after exertion, they do not have pus or last for more than a couple of hours. I can't imagine pus coming out in a lesion from exertion. I suspect however that these acne lesions are preexisting and exacerbated by heat (eg rosacea.) Suspect you flush easily. See dermatologist since this is usually controllable. ...Read more

I get hot red splotches on my skin as soon as I get hot (shower, sweater, sun). They leave after a few mins in the cool. How do I get rid of them?

They are: your skin capillary's reacting to the heat (to lower internal temperature by dilating in the SKIN) I do not think you will be able to "get rid of them" but some physician's (including myself) think that BETA BLOCKERS such as Propranalol (inderal) might help! Discuss with your PCP (Preimary Care Provider) Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

I have bumps under the skin of nose what is it and how do I get rid of it ? Its bumps under the skin of my nose I've used pro active everything they wont go away and i don't know how to fix it

It : It is possible that you have folliculitis or possibly impetigo which are common on the upper lip and around the nose. Treatment would typically be a topical antibiotic cream/ointment twice daily. Perhaps try polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) over the counter and see if that helps. If not, i would recommend you get evaluated by your doctor so appropriate treatment can be given. I hope that helps! ...Read more

I have  sun burn  on my face .How do I get the same face colour as before .Thanx?

Temporary injury: Sunburn is basically when the radiation from the sun injures the tissues. Your body responds with inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) which means it is bringing fresh blood and healing factors to the area. Unless your sunburn is so severe that you have blistering, evidence of deeper tissue injury or you self traumatize by picking off dead skin, the color should return to normal quickly. ...Read more

Why do I get zits on my nipples I'm a very clean person? And how do I get rid of them? I don't wear a bra at night.

Why do I get zits on my nipples I'm a very clean person? And how do I get rid of them? I don't wear a bra at night.

Montgomery glands: There are many oil glands on the nipples as well as ducts. Any obstruction can cause the appearance of whiteheads or "zits" . Creams or ointments may make this work. I would first try gentle cleansing with a mild soap and let dry. If this doesn't help a mild retinol may be of some help. Avoid typical,acne creams. If this worsens, you should see a dermatologist ...Read more

Have it checked: It's possible you may have had a local allergic reaction but whenever I hear of sudden outbreak of frequent scabs I think of Impetigo. It's yellow crusted and kinda wet looking. It's due to a germ and will respond quickly to antibiotics. Unusual rashes are best seen by an MD to help determine the cause and the best treatment. For now was skin in sensitive skin mild soap/water. Neosporin to scabs. ...Read more

Remember there are many reasons to have dark spots on the palms, it can be due to bruises, benign nevi(moles), fungus(tinea nigra) or even more concerning lesions. Your best bet is to get these spots looked at in person. ...Read more
