My query is to a dermatologist. My Name is Mrs. Nair, age- 38 years, female. My problem is listed below:

In 2006 April I started having hyper pigmentation on my face, neck and upper back. I consulted a specialist at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore and underwent blood test. As per the blood test my IGE (immunoglobin E) was 460, high above normal. Therefore, I underwent a patch test and the result of the patch test said I was allergic to PPD and some parabens. So my problem was diagnosed as hyper pigmentation due to contact dermatitis. I had used hair colour since February 2006 and as per this result I completely stopped using the same. I underwent chemical peeling, micro dermabrasion and laser treatment subsequently. My facial skin improved a bit, but not much. I had to shift to Egypt on official assignment and here again I consulted two dermatologists. They suggested a skin biopsy for Macular Amyloidosis and a biopsy was done. As per the biopsy report "bundles of collegen found in the dermis and slightly reactive to congo red staining. diagnosis: Amyloidosis."I do not have any itching on the skin except sometimes which i take as due to dryness. Can you please confirm what is my condition? Is there any treatment for this? I would really be grateful for your reply as I cannot consult a doctor from India face to face now as I am still in Egypt.

Hi, I underwent a laser hair removal session (IPL) around 10 days back. Subsequently I noticed patches of dark marks on some parts of my leg. The doctor who did the procedure said its hyper-pigmentation and has prescribed HH lite for the marks. My next session is due in 4 weeks and I'm concerned if the cream is effective enough to treat the hyper pigmentation in that time period. Can HH lite treat marks so quickly?

I have an anul tag/prolapse that I want to have removed by laser. Is this the best method to have a better cosmetic finish there, as the tag is affecting my sex life. And who can do this operation, my hemorroid doctor who says the tag is a result of a prolapse of a hemmoroid he removed 10 years ago, or a plastic sugeon? Can it be done under local anaesthetic? Thank you in advance
