Minimal Basilar Scarring Meaning
Is it normal to have 2 disctechtomys in the space of 18 months? My first has now left substantial scar tissue meaning permanent pain what will help
Often occurs: As the swelling in a surgical site reduces, the feeling often begins to return gradually. At that time nerves begin to awaken, may become extra-sensitive (like when a dental local anesthetic is wearing off). Do not rub the area, as that may irritate the forming scar tissues. If persists, return to treating doctor for exam. Nerve return and itching is very gradual to resolve in many cases. ...Read more
I have mild acne and I'm taking lymecycline and I was wondering if this would get rid of my scars?
Won't touch scars: I'm sorry your acne was neglected and you ended up with scars. You also know not to use just an antibiotic as monotherapy for acne -- you also need a topical agent such as benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid or both. Laser Rx, filler injection, or microsurgery may help the scars. Best wishes. ...Read more

Scar: Scars typically don't open up after 7 years. That being said a suture granuloma could explain this. You should be seen and examined by your plastic surgeon if that is possible. If you have changed areas use the asaps or asps websites to locate a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. ...Read more

For someone who has a mild condition of eczema causing the skin to scar and darken is there anything that can get the skin back to its original color?
Possibly: Eczema is frequently well controlled with cortisone type topical medicines. If there is full thickness scarring then improvement will be limited to the extent of damage. The damage most often comes from the excoriation caused by scratching to relieve the itch often accompanying eczema. Antipruritics therefore are important in treatment. ...Read more

Benzoyl peroxide, which is over the counter, is used for papular and pustular acne, which is the red inflamed acne. Tretinion is used for comedonal acne. Topical antibiotics are another choice for acne. Often, more than one type of treatment is needed depending on your skin. Treatment for the scars varies as well. ...Read more

Tips for scars: If out in the sun, be sure to apply sunscreen to the scar--direct sunlight can make scars very unsightly. Vitamin E oil is great for scars--gently massage it in. I have also seen good results with Mederma. Alternatively, there are compound creams that pharmacies make for scar treatment. These usually have steroids and other medications. Careful with chemical peels, you may irritate it more. ...Read more
22female oily/sensitive skin. Mild-moderate acne. I have a few deep scars. How can I make sure it doesn't get deeper and how to banish them?
Luckily U R young!: The scars affect the collagen layers and can be improved significantly with cosmetic laser. I have seen them completely reversed with the Genesis laser in rebuilding collagen. It will take several treatments over several mos. Your whole face can be treated at the same time. So your pores will be minimized, and you'll have radiant skin again. No worries! Creams & Lotions aren't permanent solutions. ...Read more

First things first: Before you consider doing any of this, get your acne under control with topical benzoyl peroxide and/or retinoic acid. If needed, your physician can add something else. Then, ask your twelve closest friends (some of each sex) whether you should have the scar / "smile lines" lasered. Most will probably say, "Huh? " For a 21 year old man, looking good is about physical fitness, not face touch-ups. ...Read more

Annual chest xray (smoker) always clear no known infect in 10+yrs (last bronchitis) mild scar in left low lobe this year just show now from10yr ago?
May not be scar:
Could be a tiny area of collapsed lung, called atelectasis, which is very common and benign.
Also, technology keeps getting better, so the chest xrays are more detailed, especially digital radiography.
Also, the scar may have been developing all along, and just became big/dense enough to see.
Lastly, make sure your doctor is not concerned about the results - if they are, consider workup with ct. ...Read more
Can a 0.05% tretinoine cream help the red marks, caused by old acne, present on my face + some mild scars? If no, what do I use instead? If yes, time?
Won't work: The red marks will fade only with time. The scars can be managed only by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Manage your disease if still active and I am sorry you were not treated scientifically when you should have been. These marks matter little if you're otherwise living and presenting yourself well. Good luck. ...Read more

Adhesions: Have a general surgeon evaluate you as adhesions or a small incisional hernia could be the problem. This consultation should be carried out as soon as possible in view of the frequency and severity of the symptoms. Don't wait for symptoms of abdominal distension, vomiting or severe tenderness which are advanced and serious symptoms. ...Read more
