Suggest treatment for skin allergy on face - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
This is regarding a allergy over face.
I see. When did it start?
I had applied a sunscreen to my face this Saturday morning.
I see, you must have had a reaction to the sunscreen
Is it getting worse?
Have you had any difficulty breathing?
Actually, a skin specialist had visited our office on Friday.
What did they do?
And I told him about boils getting over my face occassionally.
For that, he suggested me to apply sunscreen.
The boils may be happening due to sun..
But, after coming home, on Saturday, I thought I will try it out.
Well, at the moment we must deal with the boils.
After that we can look into what is causing the sun allergies and how it can be dealt with in the long term
And applied a cream that was suggested for my husband.
I think that sunscreen did not suit my skin
Agreed, i do not think it suited you at all
I applied it only once on Saturday morning, before going out. I did not apply it again.
It is Suncros Aquagel.
So. I would suggest you buy a steroid cream for the face and use it until the boils have receded
It is curable, right?
The boils? Of course!
Can you please suggest a steroid cream?
where do you live?
ok, i will name a few brands for you
but if you simply go to the pharmacy and tell them you want a hydrocortisone cream they will have any one of a hundred different brands
But that wont cause any other kind of allergy, right?
steroids are chemicals which stop the whole allergic process, it's very very very rare to actually be allergic to a steroid
it's possible, but incredibly unlikely
I think I have Lycor 1% (Hydrocorisone Cream BP 1.0% W/w)
Will it reduce the itching too.
And how long will it take to make my face look normal?
give it a few days
apply the cream after shower in the morning and before going to bed at night
Oh. So, should I not be going to office tomorrow?
you should be back to normal in 3-4 days
It all depends on how you feel
Do you practise in Bangalore?
At fortis and Sakra
but i'm a neurocritical care expert
not a dermat
Can you please suggest a good dermatologist?
sure, do you have a preferance on kormangala or some other area?
kormangala...i had gone XXXXXXX hrudayalay's Reviva which is in HSR ....there they have suggested this cream for my husband.
At fortis Marathalli there are dr. Kushalappa and Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
I have worked with Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX in the past and he is competent
Oh. OK. Will note down their names and try to visit them, once I get rid of this allergy.
she has her own practice in 4th block koramangala
First left after sony world junction
That is when you are heading tword Johns and the BDA complex
Is it a clinic? or hospital?
Hers is a clinic
Do you know the name of the clinic
i have heard the name often, so i thought i would mention
I have never actually worked with her
Oh. OK. I will then try to reach out either Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX or Dr XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Well, doctor, I have another question
Can I be applying face wash for cleaning my face, until I am applying this Lycor cream for treating allergy?
I mean for the next 3-4 days
you can, but after you use the facewash, you must reapply the steroid cream
and face washes have a tendancy to dry out skin, so do steroids.
so be careful, you can cause your skin to peel
OK, Dr. I already applied it few minutes back, and I am feeling bit relieved from itching.
I mean the Lycor
it will help
Anything else I can help you with?
Thank you doctor, Just wanted to ask, what do Neurocritical care experts do? I mean, what are the areas of subject you concentrate on.
I am askiing, just in case, if it would be helpful to visit you for my parents,
in any case
we don't see outpatients, we only deal in ICU level care
God forbid that your parent need my services
Thank you, doctor. It was really helpfull. I tried to reach out to many dermatologist over phone for my allergy. But everyone seems to be closed due to festival.
yup, true, Ugadi today, so everybody has shut down
Yes, I was looking for a doctor who could cure my mother's headache.
no worries, am always happy to help
A good neurologist will help your mom. She needs a detailed exam by one such and they will be able to guide you further
Ok. doctor. Will take your leave.. Thanks for the quick suggestions.
Sorry, I read your last message now.
Have a wonderful holiday and my best to you and your folks
You mean, you can look into headache, too>
She tried out all kinds of treatments
But in vain
It is not advisable, neurology is all about skill of examination and observation. We can rarely diagnose issues over a chat or email
In fact my father is also a doctor, but even his treatment does not seem to cure her headache.
Yes. I know.
My parents will be coming to Bangalore, next month.
I was thinking I will get a treatment for her
Good idea, have her see a neurologist at a large hospital, there, if a CT or MRI is needed you can get it done in one shot
Will try to visit a neurologist, once they come here.
Ok. Doctor. Thanks. It was a very useful chat.
always happy to help
Thanks for coming to HealthCareMagic
You are Welcome.
