Hi,thanks for query.Normally after chicken pox in most the cases the scars clear ups well.In case of deep scars sometimes they remain.I will advise your to wait for 2 more weeks and then go for any treatment.In case of facial scars microdermaabrasion gives good results.For that please see a dermatologist.

Respected Sir, This is to inform you that I suffered from Chicken pox 2 years ago, after it was recovered i had dark patches over my Forehead and cheeks and neck. It made me look as if i have attained a black skin over my face. I consulted many doctors but was in vain Atlast i COnsulted the Dermatologist in Jipmer SHe gave me Cream COnsisting of Kojic Acid and Vitamin C. I started using it for two months literally there was a very little improvement. But then i went on myself to hydroquinone cream(HYdroquinone + Tretinoin + Molasmate Fuorate) Wonder as if my skin turned very lightened in 3 weeks but with disadvantages with skin irritation, red pimples over face. So I stopped using it but my all brown patches reappeared noe with the same dull colour, What should I do now Which cream should I use again to regain my Original Colour Kindly Help......

I am a 40 year old female living in Chennai. I had a severe attack of chicken pox 3 weeks back and have recovered now. I now have more than 50 dark spots on my face alone, and have about 200 dark spots all over my body. These dark spots are are not deep. As suggested by a doctor on this site I am using Kojivit cream and Sun Cross UVA cream for the past one week. I am indeed worried whether these dark sports would go off and wonder whether I should go in for any laser treatment for removing these spots on my face, at this stage. Kindly advise me on this, and if you would suggest laser treatment, please also suggest a good clinic providing this treatment in Chennai, how long will it take for a complete cure and the approximate cost for the same.

I have a rash in random places on my body. Around my breast and sporadically on my torso. A few spots on my back and now I noticed between my butt cheeks? I ve had shingles in the past so this DOES NOT look like that. I took my valtrex just in case out of concern. Any thoughts on this rash? I have a diaper rash cream and I m getting ready to take a bleach bath. I don t have a primary care right now, but could see my OB if you think I need a prescription cream.

I have mallorets meningitis, I have struggled with it apparently since I was about 2-3 years old due to varicella and a bad blood infection. About a month ago I had symptoms of meningitis again... Went to ER and was admitted to hospital for a week and a half for antiviral therapy via IV... The day before I was discharged the doctor in charge of my care ordered a picc line to continue IV therapy at home... After 2 additional weeks of antiviral ivs.. Picc line was removed. This was a week and a half ago.. Two days ago I awoke in the middle of the night running a low grade fever and right shoulder and right side of neck was swollen, I developed a cough and now everytime I cough it feels like someone it sticking a hot poker in my right lung and right frontal aspect of my neck, is it possible I ve developed an infection internally?
