Have black patches on cheeks. Which medicine or cream will help? - Online Doctor Chats
welcome TO XXXXXXX
I AM 33 YRS OLD AND HAVING 2 CHILDREN. MY ELDER SON IS 08 YRS & YOUNGER IS 18 MTHS. I HAVE BLACK PITACHES IN MY CHEECKS(JHAY) I HAVE CONSULT TO SKIN SPECIALIST ALSO BUT THIS DOES NOT CURE. KINDLY ADVICE ME.
first and foremost can u tell me what the skin doc, has advised you
HE HAS GIVEN ME LOTION & MEDICINES. THIS IS A MATTER OF 3 YEARS BACK.
the black patches are inside the mouth or on the face ?
FACE . I THINK IT IS PIGMENTATION . AFTER DELIVERY OF MY YOUNGER SON IT COMES.
how large is the patch ? on the skin
NOT LARGE IT IS OF MEDIMUM SIZE. SOMETHIMES IT IS VERY DARK
SIR WHAT IS TERM MELASMA. PL EXPLAIN
it is a skin pigmentation, due to increased hormones during pregnancy
and it is common in many women, and it also has a genetic background
NO SIR MY MOM DID NOT HAVE THIS PROB.
CAN THIS BE CURE.
melasma is not a disease
NOW WHAT U SUGGEST ME.
hence the only treatment , which can be given is creams , etc which help to reduce the melanocyte production , which in many cases , do not help much
there are other alternatives like Dermaabrasion or laser therapy
which can give much better results
OK SIR. THANKS
Most doctors , and dermatologists, will prescribe you low dose steroid creams, to reduce the melanocyte production
but, their efficasy varies, and many women, have different results, based on the genetic make up
since it as been long time since you saw your doctor, i would advise you to see him again
OK THANKS DOCTOR.
and he would help you after examinaing you
I HAVE ONE MORE QUEARY.CAN I ASK U
I HAVE GOLA IN MY HEAD. IT IS MORE THAN 10 YRS & SOMETIMES IT INCREASES A LITTLE.
WGHAT IS THAT
may i know where exactly u have it ?
FROM WHERE THE HEAD STARTS OR CAN SAY ON THE TOP OF THE EAR SIDE
it could be a sebaceous cyst also called a dermoid cyst
this is a slow growing cyst, which comes out , from sebaceous glands of the hair follicles
usually, it is safe, and does not cause any issues
SIR, CAN THIS LED TO ANY TYPE OF CANCER IF DOES NOT CURE.
NO , it does not
but if it gets infected it can cause a ulcer, and pain, and discharge
SO WHAT U SUGGEST ME. SHOULD I OPERATE IT OR NOT
OK THANKS FOR UR VALUABLE SUGGESTION
this is a small surgical procedure, and does not take much time, and can be done , in a walk in day procedure ,
You are welcome
