WHAT’S YOUR QUERY?
Q: I am 26 years old and have been continuously feeling a stinging and burning sensation on my lips for the past one week. I don’t know what could cause this problem because I don’t use lipstick; instead, I only apply petroleum jelly. Please help! Farah
WHAT’S YOUR QUERY?
A:
Dear Farah, it could be due to a fungal infection or dryness. But you should still visit a dermatologist to see if you are allergic to any product, like your toothpaste.

Q: I am 36 years old. There seems to be a patch of skin on my shoulder that has apparently lost its pigment and I feel mild itching on the area. Please tell me what could it be. Mahnoor
A:
Dear Mahnoor, according to your description there is nothing to worry about. This is possibly a part of the skin’s regular ageing process. But there is no harm in getting a physical check-up done, as the doctor will accordingly prescribe relevant medicine, if needed.

Q: My daughter has infected lice from school. Should I treat it with home remedies or use over-the-counter pesticides for hair lice. What will be more effective? Amna
A:
Dear Amna, over-the-counter products can be risky, so avoid using any kind of head lice pesticide. Anti-lice shampoo is a better option comparatively; other than that you must regularly check your daughter’s head and ensure hair hygiene for her.
