If you notice yellow patches of fat underneath the skin, usually on or around the eyelids. You might have xanthelasma. While they are neither harmful nor painful, these minor growths may be disfiguring and can be removed.

 

The condition is rare, but you can sometimes get it if there are high levels of cholesterol or other fats in your blood. It's also possible to get it even if your cholesterol levels are normal.

 

 

Women, unlike men, do not expect to lose their hair, so when it happens it can cause immense trauma. Several factors can be responsible for causing bald patches along with thinning of hairline.
Some of the biggest contributors to hair loss in women include pregnancy, polycystic ovarian syndrome, use of some types of birth control pills and genetics.

Less common causes of hair loss in women include excessive stress, alopecia areata (autoimmune condition), infections that affects both men and women.

Treatment options include 
Topicals including Minoxidil, Tinctures, peptides etc
Oral Supplements containing Biotin, Calcium pantothenate etc. 
Procedures like mesotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma etc  
The treatment is tailor made according to underlying causes and deficiency if any.

ITCHING IN PREGNANCY

Post in Blog
by Dr. Neetika Paul

 

For many women, pregnancy isn't as smooth as it is for others.

As pregnancy progresses, the skin stretches and tightens. This leads to dryness and itching on the skin.  Pregnancy itching can actually play havoc on your skin.

Sometimes you cannot prevent hormone induced rashes on the skin but can soothe the skin using:

·       Some ice on the body to cool the skin.

·       Applying calamine lotion.

·       Using Aloevera on skin.

·       Moisturizing and applying oatmeal paste on the body.

·       Using humidifier in your room if it’s too dry.

·       Taking lukewarm water bath (as hot water makes skin more dry).

·       Using mild fragrance free soaps.

Most skin rashes disappear after your delivery. Sometimes it stays for upto 3 months before it disappears.

 

Pregnancy is a wonderful thing for every women. Don’t let these little rashes disturb you. Consult a dermatologist if you experience persistent and severe itching and simple home remedies don’t seem to work for you as it could be due to an underlying liver problem.

SUNSCREEN

Save your skin with the right sunscreen applied the right way.

 Apply Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen. Look for a product that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.

 Look for Zinc Oxide. It’s the most effective ingredient for protecting your skin. Titanium dioxide is a good second choice.

 Choose SPF 30 or Above. That means you can stay about 30 times longer in the sun for the same exposure than if you were wearing nothing. It will also block about 97 percent of UV rays.

 Re-apply After Water, Reapply once every hour if you’re exposed to water, and once every two to three hours if you’re out in the sun continually.

 Avoid Peak UV Hours. Try to schedule activities for the morning or evening – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. is the greatest danger zone for UV exposure.

 

• Look for Sun-Protective Clothes. Hats, umbrella, shades and long-sleeved shirts are great choices, especially clothes with built-in sun protection – look UVF fabrics.
