Hello Mr .Pathan;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since you are 18 yrs now the colour of the skin of face will change because in young age there is tanning of skin due to excessive exposure to sun while travel;play;driving bike and other out door activities.To make it a little better or fair please try to reduce exposure to sun if it is not necessary to do so.Try applying a sunscreen before going out then after that for care of your facial skin you can get a clean up or even facial done and things will improve.If the problem continues or worsens then contact a Dermatologist for further advice and treatment.
Thanks

Hi I am 47 years old and have what I am now assuming is a nasal crease from having some pretty severe allergies for all of my adult life, my allergies are mostly under control but the crease is prominent now and white. I work outside and use sunscreen but still am exposed to tanning rays and while my skin darkens the line is more white than ever, not to mention I have Native American blood so it s very pronounced all year. Is there a cream that would diminish the crease? I m even open to plastic surgery procedures if that would be an option, last ditch effort kind of option. Any suggestions?

I have a stinging red rash on my left shoulder that I do not know where it came from but has existed for three days now and is causing much discomfort including keeping me up at night. I do not know what it could be nor do I want to go to a doctor for a minor irritation. Any ideas about what could cause this?
