Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing in.

Habit of having pricking pimples may give rise to scars or dark spots on the pimple XXXXXXX lasting for long time.

Go for face wash 3-4 times a day with branded face wash lotion.

Apply Meladerm cream on affected part as per instructions given on card.

Use Kojic cream or lotion on face.

Use Kojik soap for bath.

Apply some moisturizing cream or lotion on face.

For the time being you can apply some steroid cream on the affected parts.

Take vitamin A, D multivitamin supplements.

Hope, I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask. I will be happy to help.

Wish you good health.

Hi XXXXXXX,

Thanks for writing back.

As you started using Clinxa-A gel, it will do.

For oily skin, frequent face wash will work to remove oily material from your facial skin.

Dandruff may produce pimples or some skin lesion on face, neck and nose.

So, for dandruff use Selsun or Selen shampoo as directed on instruction card.

As you are 23 and height is 5.1, your weight should be between 42kg-52kg. Therefore, you require few more kg increasing your weight.

Take high nourishing protein food like, milk, pulses, cereals, puddings, cheese, paneer, butter, Ghee etc.

Take some multivitamin supplements and Iron capsules.

Hope, I answered your query.

If you do not have further query or clarification, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.

Thanks.

Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing back.

For this, you consult your dermatologist and get the spots examined.

It depends upon how many spots are there and how many sittings can be done and keeping few side effects of laser therapy like burnt skin, redness on the spots etc. he will advise accordingly.

Thanks.
