Will a flat spot on a child's head, older than 2 years old, continue to minimize over time as their head grows? We were told our sons head would round
The practice of: putting babies to sleep on their backs has contributed to more "flat heads." Some have treated this with a helmut, usually at 4-12 months of age, though it is not clear this is more effective than trying to avoid lying on back during the day.As the child and his skull grows, the flattening will improve. It may not be perfectly symmetrical, but is not a cosmetic/social/brain development problem ...Read more

I have some new small freckles around my mouth, cheeks, and chin after spending a month close to equator (w sunscreen). Will they fade with winter?
Most Likely: Probably, be sure to use sunscreen every day from now on too. If they don't, IPL does a nice job of lightening sun damage with no down time. It does require regular treatments to maintain results. Some chemical peels can lighten sun damage. Fractionated laser does a really nice job of lightening pigmentary issues, but there is some downtime. Hydroquinone and lightening creams are other options. ...Read more

Androgenic effect: Elidel (pimecrolimus) is a cream -prednisone based for eczema and I don't think it is contibuting to your rows of eyelashes.

Hi, I am a female (22) with thin hair and a Y-shaped bald pattern on the crown. The hair just splits at the crown, what to do? dry,little itchy scalp

You're shedding more than the usual 100-150 hairs a day. I assume by "Y" pattern you meant a "V," which is thinning on each temple area, called "male pattern," for obvious reason. Lotsa causes, lotsa possible cures. See a hair doc! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
