Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

You have got a sever sun tan because of long hours of sun exposure.The best thing is to wear full sleeves along with a good spf sunscreen daily. You should use the sunscreen every three hours in the day.This would protect you from further damage.

For treatment ,you can go for chemical peels ,along with topical application of hydroquinone cream at night.You can consult a dermatologist who is experienced in doing chemical peels .

regards,

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? It is not a place where it could be sunburn but could be a bug bite of some kind since we went camping
