Treatment for Melasma

Melasma is a common skin problem. It typically affects women of 20-50 years of age, causing brownish to blue-grey patches on the face. Most people get it on the forehead, bridge of the nose, chin and above the upper lip. It is uncommon in men.

 

Why do I get it?

 
The exact cause is unknown. It is due to increased number of melanocytes and melanin, therefore the colour.
Sun exposure is a well known risk factor. Ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun stimulates melanocytes.

Molluscum contagiosum is a common condition where small wart looking bumps (mollusca) appear on the skin. It is caused by a pox virus that affects both children and adults.

How do I get it?

This virus can be passed on by skin-to-skin contact.

You can be infected by touching things that have been contaminated by the virus, for example, sharing of towels with someone who has molluscum contagiosum.

Skin tags are small flesh-coloured skin growths that hang off the skin. They can appear on any part of the surface of the body, most commonly on the neck, eyelids, armpits, groin folds and under breasts. They are so common that almost everyone will develop a skin tag at some point of their lives. Sometimes, they can be mistaken for warts because of their similar appearance.

 

Why do I get it?

It is in your gene. Some people are more prone to developing skin tags.

I have been asked this question a few times. Trust me, it is not an easy question to answer. But I am not surprised why people asked this question.

More and more people are aware of the things they can do to look better. Information can be obtained easily and for free via internet, social media and blogs.
