HIVES

Hives  are itchy welts that can show up anywhere on your skin. They’re caused by an allergic or other type of reaction. They can last a few minutes or several days before they go away. Sometimes they’re a sign of more serious problems, especially when you have trouble breathing. Hives that recur or that last more than 6 weeks are considered chronic urticaria and require further evaluation.

If you have hives along with fever, nausea, stomach cramps, shortness of breath, and a drop in blood pressure after a bee sting, insect bite, or drug injection, that can be a sign of a life-threatening  allergy.Common triggers for hives include:

  • Foods like milk, fish, or nuts
  • Drugs like aspirin or penicillin
  • Food additives like flavorings and preservatives
  • Bug Bites
  • Extreme cold or heat
  • Pressure on the skin
  • Viral infections
  • Skin contact with allergens.

SKIN TAGS

The causes of skin tags vary and sometimes they may appear for seemingly no specific reason. However, there are certain risk factors that may make it more likely that you will get skin tags. Age is a major factor in your susceptibility to skin tags; people who are older than middle age are more likely to suffer from skin tags. Skin tags also commonly appear on those who are overweight. Pregnant women are also more susceptible to skin tags. People with diabetes may also be at a greater risk for skin tags.
Skin tags usually appear in areas where skin rubs against skin, which is why they commonly appear in areas such as the neck, eyelids, armpits, groin, and underneath or around breasts. They can also grow in other areas such as the back and chest. Knowing the causes and risk factors for skin tags is the first step in prevention and treatment.One should visit a board certified expert dermatologist for skin tags removal treatment.Visit our clinics at Malad,Juhu and Bandra in Mumbai for all skin,hair and nail ailments.Call 9004839333 for appointments.

SYMPTOMS OF SKIN INFECTION

The symptoms of a skin infection vary depending on the type. Common symptoms include redness of the skin and a rash. You may also experience other symptoms, such as itching, pain, and tenderness.

See a dermatologist if you have pus-filled blisters or a skin infection that doesn’t improve or gets progressively worse. Skin infections can spread beyond the skin and into the bloodstream. When this happens it can become life-threatening.

Signs of a severe infection include:

  • pus
  • blisters
  • skin sloughing, breakdown
  • dark, necrotic appearing skin, or skin that becomes discolored and painful.

PIGMENTATION

Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Some pigmentation disorders affect just patches of skin. Others affect your entire body.

If your body makes too much melanin, your skin gets darker. Pregnancy, Addison’s disease, and sun exposure all can make your skin darker. If your body makes too little melanin, your skin gets lighter. Vitiligo is a condition that causes patches of light skin. Albinism is a genetic condition affecting a person’s skin. A person with albinism may have no color, lighter than normal skin color, or patchy missing skin color. Infections, blisters and burns can also cause lighter skin.

ICHTHYOSIS

Many things can leave your skin dry and flaky, from cold air to the chlorine in swimming pools. In a small number of people, a group of diseases called ichthyosis causes skin dryness and scaling.

It can’t be cured, but treatments can relieve the scaling and make you feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Ichthyosis is not one disease, but a family of about 20 skin conditions that lead to dry skin. People with this condition lose the protective barrier that keeps moisture in their skin. They also make new skin cells too quickly or shed old cells too slowly. This leads to a buildup of thick, scaly skin.

The condition gets its name from the Greek word for fish, because the skin looks like fish scales.For treatments of all skin,hair and nail ailments visit our clinics at Malad,Juhu and Bandra in Mumbai.Call 9004839333 for appointments.

FUNGAL NAILS

In normal, healthy people,fungal infection of the nails are most commonly caused by fungus that is caught from moist, wet areas. Communal showers, such as those at a gym or swimming pools, are common sources. Going to nail salons that use inadequate sanitization of instruments (such as clippers, filers, and foot tubs) in addition to living with family members who have fungal nails are also risk factors. Athletes have been proven to be more susceptible to nail fungus. This is presumed to be due to the wearing of tight-fitting, sweaty shoes associated with repetitive trauma to the toenails. Having athlete’s foot makes it more likely that the fungus will infect your toenails. Repetitive trauma also weakens the nail, which makes the nail more susceptible to fungal infection.

Elderly people and people with certain underlying disease states are also at higher risk. These include anything that impairs your immune system can make you prone to getting infected with the fungus. These include conditions such as AIDS, diabetes,cancer, psoriasis or taking any immunosuppressive medications like steroids.Visit our clinics at Malad,Juhu and Bandra  in Mumbai for all  skin,hair  and nail ailments.Call 9004839333  for  appointments.

DANDRUFF

Dandruff is a condition marked by flakes of dry skin on the scalp. The flakes can often fall from your hair and land on your shoulders. Dandruff usually results from a dry scalp. If this is the cause, the flakes are typically small and you may have dry skin on other parts of your body.Washing your hair with a harsh shampoo or using a lot of chemicals on your hair can sometimes irritate your scalp and lead to flakes.A fairly common condition called seborrheic dermatitis is the cause of many dandruff cases. It’s characterized by patches of red and oily skin that leave yellowish flakes on the scalp. These flakes are often larger than dandruff flakes that occur from dry skin. Seborrheic dermatitis can also cause flaky, irritated patches elsewhere on your body, which may lead you to think you have psoriasis.For all skin,hair and nail ailments visit our clinics at Malad,Juhu and Bandra in Mumbai.Call 9004839333 for appointments.
