Hydroquinone: Hydroquinone can take a few months to slowly fade the dark spot. Sunscreen is very important as well. I would first follow up with your dermatologist to make sure that it deemed to be the appropriate treatment for the dark spot, though. I hope that helps. ...Read more

Will vitamin E cream take to heal scars?

Possibly but...: Vitamin e cream is a common home remedy for scars but there is little evidence it works; still many people have found it helps- applying oil from natural e capsules may work better than cream. There are many other remedies that may help, including calendula cream (my favorite), peanut oil (advised by edgar cayce), tamanu oil, raw honey & aloe vera. See http://www. Earthclinic.

Is there any scar removal or lighting cream that actually work on acne scar?

Is there any scar removal or lighting cream that actually work on acne scar?

Not reliably: First priority is to treat the acne. Once this is under control, the scars can mature, and hopefully fade. If the scars do not resolve see a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon for available treatments. There are many, because none are prefect. Bleaching creams, even the best ones, work about 1/3rd of the time with proper, long term use. ...Read more

Which scar cream would work better for flattening on an old keloid scar?

Which scar cream would work better for flattening on an old keloid scar?

Really none.: If you have a true keloid scar the best first line treatment is steroid injection. If that fails to improve the keloid to your satisfaction the next option is excision which comes with very high recurrence rates (and can come back worse than the original) and a postop regimen of silicone, pressure, and in severe cases even radiation treatment. ...Read more

Does contractubex gel works on depressed scar from scratch or I can use silgil cream on it (this is for 4 year old boy)?

Does contractubex gel works on depressed scar from scratch or I can use silgil cream on it (this is for 4 year old boy)?

Contratubex first: Contratubex antiinflammatory and moisturizing properties should benefit scar remodeling over time, ameliorate and blend appearance, and hopefully keep scar from entering a hypertrophic stage. That said, silicone creams/tapes/films work indirectly by inducing a relative hypoxemia/collagenolysis thereby softening a hypertrophic scar over time. Both require consistent, long term application. ...Read more

Dime size skin discoloration from old scar on top of shin where skin is most vulnerable. Derma prescribed hydroquine 4 cream. Will it work to lighten?

Dime size skin discoloration from old scar on top of shin where skin is most vulnerable. Derma prescribed hydroquine 4 cream. Will it work to lighten?

Yes, but be careful: Two things to keep in mind with whitening agents is that they are potent, and can whiten areas you didn't want whitened. So you have to apply sparingly with gloves, and just go to border of this area, and make sure to keep sun off of it while on hydroquinone.Also, check ewg. Org skin deep to see what's in the formulation too. You may want to reconsider, and see if time will help fade the discoloratn. ...Read more

Why does tretinoin cream 0.1 makes ance worst for the worst few weeks? And how good do you think it works for acne and scars after the first few weeks

Why does tretinoin cream 0.1 makes ance worst for the worst few weeks? And how good do you think it works for acne and scars after the first few weeks

Acne and patience: Acne treatment virtually require long term follow up on a regimen as any cream or emollient will cause initial reaction to inflammed skin. Generally three month patient trial of one regimen is warranted before another medication is tried. Tretinoin creams can work on mild-moderately severe comodomal acne, in conjunction with long term antibiotic, usuallu ally Tetracyclin family. ...Read more

Is retin a (tretinoin) cream is works better for acne scars on face?

Not for scars: I'm sorry your acne was neglected and you ended up with scars. Nothing you can apply will touch them. If you want them less visible, a plastic surgeon or dermatologist can do laser, filler, or microsurgery. Several Hollywood male stars have kept their scars for "tough guy" roles, and depending on your self-concept, they may be a plus. ...Read more

Is circumcision the only options for a case of phimosis with scar tissue? Is it the only option? The only thing to do? Or would the alternative treatments/options work? The steroid creams - betamethasone, stretching, preputioplasty, etc? What about partia

Is circumcision the only options for a case of phimosis with scar tissue? Is it the only option? The only thing to do? Or would the alternative treatments/options work? The steroid creams - betamethasone, stretching, preputioplasty, etc? What about partia

You choose: The choice of treatment depends directly on the risk/benefit assessment and your personal opinion. I agree with the respondents. A circumcision will be curative. Steroid creams work quite well and should be tried first if you desire an "intact" prepuce. If these fail, and you still do not want a circ, then you can opt for operative stretching/slit/or partial circ all of which can recur. ...Read more
