Having darker forehead as compare to skin complexion. Cure? - Online Doctor Chats
I have a quey regarding the skin .I have dark color on my forehead compared to my skin tone. Although am a dark complexion person but on color on my forehead is lot dark.Also its not covered on whole forehead but its present on middle of the forehead. Any procedure or cure to get rid to it asap
Is it associated with any itching or any rash?
I prescribed a Skin Doc last year.. he prescibed me a oinmnet
did it help?
i did get some improvement, but now i dont see any much improvement
I think the most important part of using a sunblock was missed
So I would suggest you use a broad spectrum sunblock for atleast 6 weeks.
na, he prescribed a sun screen also
What was the SPF also?
it needs to be atleast 50-60
So do 1 thing
Apply a sunblock for 5-6 weeks
but i do rarely go on afternoon or when its hot out..
But actually we are supposed to wear a sunblock even in the night
oh ok..then can u please suggest a good sun screen of 50-60 SPF
Thats because a lot of UVA and UVB is present in the atmosphere
Atleast SPF 50 and both UVA and UVB protection
okies. would i get the improvement soon
You use this 20 minutes before stepping out and every 2 hours after that
It will take time XXXXXXX
We're looking at something like 1-2 months
oh ok..will do the same
Actually, MElacare cannot be given long term
Its not recommended
so shud i stop it
I suggest you stop it
Use the sunblocck for 6 weeks
See if it works for you
Then in the final stages of treatment we can add that
Doc,then i should consult you after how many days
Lets see after 2 weeks
there is 1 thing I'd like to tell you
There is no permanent treatment for increased pigmentation
A sunblock will make your skin look the same
with same you mean?
It means you have the same skin color all over the face
whats this glyclic acid peel method
This peel is also only partially effective
So I dont want to promise you the moon and say it didnt work in the end
They use glycolic acid and partially peel of the skin
So the top layer of the skin is removed and it is replaced by new skin
oh...Is it painful
It will be slightly painful
But not recommended at this stage
Lets start with the sunblock
Then we can add Melacare for some time
will use the sunscreen and get bak to you after 2 weeks
we'll take it step by step
Is there anything else I can help you with?
am a new user here..so how i consult back toyou from here
