How to remove hyper-pigmentation scars on both my arms which are from 5 years ?

Hi, my age is 33 years and i am single. My height is 5 2 and weight is 52kgs. Have suffered from TB in childhood, had jaundice in the last 1 year and have got hyper-pigmentation scars on both my arms since 5 years. Couple of months back, i got fresh eruptions on my hands and these have again resulted in dark black spots. Please help me to get rid of these scars.

Hi, mday I answer you ouhealrth queries right now ? Please type your query here...my baby had a blood smear with a few acanthocytes. He was born at 36 weeks and small but has gained weight very well and is now 75th percentile. He is otherwise well but has mild persistant jaundice. His platelet count is 725 which is high. He is also being treated for iron and folate deficiency. Donthe acanthocytes always indicate some kind of disease or could it be related to his iron deficiency?

I have hashimoto s with varying symptoms & new changes...for example elevated Bilirubin levels which my doc feels is Gilberts syndrome & not associated with my Hashimotos. I have very high iron levels & high satruation of iron (69% saturation upon last blood test... My GP doesn t seem extremely concerned, we did an iron study to test for Haemochromatatis which was negative... however I am fatigued more then usual, I do have a slight change to my skin colour & an unexplained itchy rash on my elbows & arms which in recent weeks has subsided, I have had more recent vision issues that have fuzzed out my sight & made me feel rather nauseous & giddy for minutes at a time...I do get headaches regularly & I am feeling like there is more going on then just my hashimotos. I do continue to get all the hashimotos related symptoms, I feel the cold & get pins & needles in my fingers & toes, my memory fails me, my hair continues to fall out, my heart rate & blood pressure has been effected & I get abdominal pain regularly but from time to time I will get lower back pain that resembles that of a kidney infection just not as severe... I am concerned & feel there has to be some form of connection between these things...or am i just going mad?
