Light patches on upper cheeks. Suggest some medicines/ointments to reduce them? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
I am an employee of Deloitte and i need your suggestion/advise on my skin
Proceed with your concerns
I am noticing light patches on upper cheeks just below the eyes
that's the only area i see patches and rest all face is fine
to reduce them*
How big is the patch?
Since when have you noticed it?
not big actually, they are small on both the side of the face but visible if you look them closely
Are you there?
yes they are since one month
Does it itch / burn or cause redness?
Can you approximately specify the size - is it more than 2 cms?
Is it growing?
Are you there?
yes they are more than 2cms but not growing.......actually i wear sun glasses a lot........So my eye area is perfectly alright but the patches are where the sun glasses ends
rest all cheeks area is perfectly alright
There are a few conditions that are possible.
what are those?
The area is relative lighter.
It is not a concerning. And the treatment is to use good sunscreen and moisturizer to prevent other areas from getting pigmented.
If not, stop using glasses and sun exposure uniformly will remove the light patches.
well i tried few creams but unfortunately not working for me.....actually my skin is oily
Here there is loss of pigment forming cells.
would you please suggest me any creams for oily skins to reduce them quickly?
it occurs due to unknown reasons, but does disappear with time.
In addition use good sunscreen with SPF above 25
this was very helpful
one more question
I am actually concerned that i didnt fall ill from past 2.5 years
What concern do you have?
that i didnt fall ill and i am scared anything happen big later
I did not understand that, what you mean by anything happen bit later?
I mean "I just wanted to know everything is alright inside my body" and if you could suggest me some tests to check the same
We recommend test when some one is ill.
i just wanted to ensure that everything is all right inside:0
And not when you don't fall ill.
i understand but just to do a general checkup
I am sure if you keep such thoughts and fears inside you will fall sick very soon...
Other than that no test is required.
ok great.....i will go with your thoughts
