Hi again ,

The chances of improvement is bleak ,but you can try out lasers at your place.Consult a dermatologist who has a laser practice .

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Well the treatment depends upon the look of the scar.If it is raised you would need a injectable treatment .If it is flat and ugly looking then probably a laser surgery.
If it is depressed the a filler injection.

I don't think any surgery would help you here ,because any surgical intervention would again leave a scar there.

I being a laser specialist ,can suggest you not to go for any laser ablation also ,as such lasers don't work good below face region.
So,its better too leave as it is ,but any way if you can describe me the look of the scar then I can suggest you the best option if any.

Good Day Dr Krueger, I am a bit concerned about my husband he had melanome cancer about 5 years ago. Had operation, mule removed and had chemo in the form of an injection he got 3 times a week for 18 months. He went for test SB100 and it was said he is fine last followed up a year ago. About 3 weeks ago he became aware of a lump at the side of his neck in the vicinity of the lower jaw. We live in a very small town and going to see the GP tomorrow but how can we make sure that the necessary test is done to make sure there is no gland or any other serious problem. His oncologist was in Pretoria but he is not registered as a oncology patient at the medical aid. Please give me an idea what is the next step to follow. Is a SB100 test reliable to be sure. In fact we told the GP this was the test done and according to that he did the test. Thanks I am a very worried wife and do appreciate your assistance. Rina Swart

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
