What does dry light coloured rough patch on face indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help?
I am XXXXXXX 29 years old
i have a skin problem
Can you describe your skin problem?
i have some dry light coloured rough patches on my face\
near the chin area and on forehaed which appear mainly dring winter time
they sometimes get itchy too
M furfur is a fungus
I want you to first rule out iron deficiency anemia
n it came out to be fine
Then it may be M furfur
though there can be some less common causes as well
and if it is M furfur then nothing much will work except lifestyle measures
Do you also get dandruff?
what lifetsyle measures??
like taking more of fruits and vegetables
slight dandruff only
and drinking pure water from an RO system
Same organism causes both conditions sometimes
It should with lessening the demarcation between light and dark skin
so is there any ointment available that i can use?
Also avoid stepping out in direct sunlight
It may cause the dark skin more dark
and the demarcation will exacerbate
Do you have a question here?
are there any anti fungal creams avaialbe that might help?
Yes they may help for sometime
can you suggest any?
You can try anti-dandruff shampoo
ok i will do that
But go easy on it
use only on affected areas
ok..and during night or daytime?
Thanks for consulting
