Does niltan by dr.Reddy helps clean acne scars?

Does niltan by dr.Reddy helps clean acne scars?

Acne scar treatment: I have no experience with niltan. It appears to be a product of an indian pharmaceutical company.

For facial acne scars, common treatments include fraxel and fractionated co2 resurfacing, and sometimes subcision. I'd suggest seeing a dermatologist to help determine best treatment options. ...Read more

I used a new line of products on my face/had bad allergic reaction/breakout to: Tea Tree Blemish Kit by The Body Shop, ingredients online! help!!!!!

Allergic Rash: If you are concerned about a possible reaction to a beauty care product I would make an appointment to see an Allergist for patch vs skin testing to determine risk. Take a picture of your reaction and bring the product in with you to appointment. Sometimes people can become sensitized (allergic contact dermatitis) to various ingredients commonly found in products used at home. ...Read more

Hi docs, would beclomethasone, dipropionate, neomycin sulfate and miconazole nitrate cream helps in removing scars mark?

Doubtful: The three drugs that you mentioned are a steroid, an antibiotic and an anti- fungal medication. I do not think these meds would reduce a scar mark which is a manifestation of a healed wound or healed infection. ...Read more

Is homeopathic slaves good for razor bumps?

Slaves?: As a homeopath, I have never heard of homeopathic slaves (people forced to produce homeopathic medicines?) but am guessing you mean salves. Calendula is an herb commonly used in homeopathy and tends to be very soothing for a wide variety of skin irritations, so you can try a salve with calendula (other homeopathics like uritica urens may help too- some salves include multiple remedies). ...Read more

Seen 2 derms-no answers.Rash mostly on back/sides.Itchy bumps when scratchd follow ¼-2" cut line under skin.Crawly on face.Antifungal wash helps some.

A photo would help: The key to dermatology is the appearance. The 'story' behind it helps lead one in the right direction. Finally, if all of that doesn't make the diagnosis a biopsy is necessary, where a doctor (pathologist) can look under a microscope and tell you what it is. You might want to send an image to a Health Tap doc-there's a new feature about tough to solve cases, maybe you would be a candidate for that ...Read more
