Q: I am 20 years old and have extremely tired-looking, puffy eyes every morning. My eyes constantly feel like they are swollen. Please tell me why is this happening? Nighat
A: Dear Nighat, you should visit your primary care doctor to sort this issue, if the symptoms are persistent for a long time now. This could be because of sleeplessness, insomnia or excess sleeping. However, the treatment you receive will focus on the reason you can’t sleep or stay asleep for long hours.
Q: I often get skin inflammation around the cuticles of my nails. I generally keep my hands clean and moisturise them regularly, but my
cuticles often seem puffy and red. Please tell me why is
that so? Uzma
A: Dear Uzma, without any physical examination, it is difficult to tell if your cuticles or fingernails are just swollen or infected. It could be a case of paronychia – an infection that can be treated using antibiotics or surgical drainage. You can get it checked with either a general physician or a dermatologist.
Q: I am 22 years old and have too much facial hair. I once used an electric razor to trim some fuzz and ever since then the facial hair has grown back darker and longer in most areas. How to treat this? Samra
A: Dear Samra, depilatory creams or waxing can help you get rid of facial hair for a longer time, but they eventually grow back with time. As for a permanent solution, you can opt for laser or electrolytic hair removal methods.
