I have these weird sweat marks on my underarms and below the knee area. How can I get rid of them? Also, can you suggest any remedy for excessive sweating?

I think you mean to say that your sweat leaves a stain on your clothing and also on your skin. There is a presence of certain chemicals in people's sweat that it tends to leave a stain. Try to use over-the-counter antiperspirant deodorants. If the problem persists then you may see a dermatologist. For such patients the ideal treatment is botox. This treatment is a day time procedure with no down time with minimal or no discomfort, amazing results and almost pain-free. Other options that we give are antiperspirant formulations to be prescribed by dermatologist which can be easily dispensed by pharmacies.

So, I have heard that dermatologists provide birthmark removals too but my birthmark is inside my eye. It's like a black mark and it's very prominent and I really want to get rid of it. Is there any possibility or this could be a risky process unlike normal birthmark removals?

Yes dear, we do remove birthmarks but only if they are on your skin. For eye issue please see an ophthalmologist. Sometimes there is an associated nevus of Ota which may appear later in life. So, it’s advised to use a sunblock regularly.

I'm 26 years old and my scalp feels really weak. It's like every time I brush my hair it's really painful. I have excessive hairfall. I try oiling my hair often. I wash them thrice a week and I also condition them after every shampoo. Also, my diet is pretty good. I want to know why does even brushing my hair hurts my scalp and is there any way I can make this stop and make my hair and scalp stronger?

The science behind the pain originates in the scalp. What’s happening is inflammation coming from blood vessels in the scalp is flooding the nerves in the hair follicles and causing them to ache. The pain in the follicle is indistinguishable from the strand, so it truly feels like your hair is hurting. Tight hairstyles are among the worst perpetrators. High ponytails, cornrows, buns, braids, and updos can all pull and even damage follicles, leading to hair loss. Most people use way too much spray in the scalp instead of on the strands. Bacteria can then thrive, especially if they mix with sweat, potentially causing a cascade of inflammation, itching, and pain. Try to use Novophane Sebo-Regulating Shampoo. It will help to regulate the pH and sebum production. If the pain persists, kindly see a dermatologist for further evaluation of the cause.

I’m starting to have this really dry skin around my mouth. Even smiling hurts and it's painful while chewing food. I use Vaseline around my mouth and it soothes it only temporarily. Please help!

Please try to look into the cause. Some people are born with a dry skin. Others get it because they don't manage it well. Certain products disturb the barrier of the skin leading to loss of moisture, eventually drying up of skin. Toothpaste spilling around the mouth may also be a cause. At times there is a deficiency of certain vitamins. Applying a moisturiser will surely help for now but if the cause will persist then the dryness can always come back. In that case, it is advised to seek a professional help by a dermatologist in this regard.
