There is a black dark spot in my forehead and it has not gone till now. It has been about 2 years. What treatment we can do in home?

You need to: See a dermatologist. Hypothetically speaking - how do you know you don't have a form of skin cancer? Skin cancer does not hurt. It also won't go away. On its own. I am not saying this is what you have. However, I can't see your specific lesion. Because of that, you must see a dermatologist for an examination.

Are aquamid injectable filler results actually permanent? While I was researching treatments for some worry lines in my forehead I came across aquamid injectable filler. The company claims the results are permanent. Are these claims true?

Caution!!!: Aquamid is polyacramide gel and is not approved for use in the United States. It is considered a permanent filler as the particles cannot be broken down by the body. Several formulations have appeared overseas and chronic problems have been encountered. Artefill is the ony fda approved permanent filler. Make sure you see a reputable dermatologist, facial plastic surgeon, or plastic surgeon.

I got a line on my forehead and it day by day increases and pains a lot. How do I cure this?

Unclear: It is not clear to me what you mean with this question. If you have a painful skin lesion on your forehead that is getting worse with time, you should see your doctor for a formal opinion. I suspect a picture, in your case, would be worth a thousand words.

How do I prevent spots on my forehead?

How do I prevent spots on my forehead?

Two items: 1) Products with Alpha Hydroxy Acid are helpful and don't require a script. 2) Dr. Oz had this issue on one of his programs that you could look up and it had to do with a lime or lemon mix as I recall. But he cautioned not to go out into the sun after application as it can discolor the skin.

Is been 4 months since having a child by c section and my hair is thinning badly. Why? What can I do? And is thinning mostly around forehead, receding.

Transient problem: A portion of our hair is in the growing phase, a portion in the shed phase. As long as most remains in the growing phase, we have our usual hair as thick as it usually stays. Sometimes major life events, like childbirth, major illness, etc. Can throw most of your hair into the shed phase. Luckily, within 6 mo your body should hit its own reset button and it comes back.Talk with your doc about it.
