Hi Doctor Maureen, My Question Is For My 12 Year Old Daughter,

Question

Hi Doctor Maureen, my question is for my 12 year old daughter, she has developed some white spots on her back that are now moving to the front of her chest. I initially thought it was fungal and got KEZ from the pharmacy, it has now been a week and it has faded or gotten any less. If it is viral or a lack of something, what should I use?Look forward to hearing from you

Answer

Good day to you and thanks so much for sending me your question. I would really like to help you, so I need a bit more information from you. Are these white spots flat? Or are they raised? Do they seem to contain and fluid or anything? Are they painful or itchy at all? Has she been using any sorts of products or creams or anything on her skin (other than the KEZ)? Does she spray her deodorant or perfume over her back and chest? There are a lot of things to consider in a case like this. Are you close enough to any of our Skin Renewal Branches that one of our doctors can take a look at her? We have 8 branches in Gauteng and 4 in Cape Town. I would really like to help you if I can.

Hi Dr Allem, I have very sensitive lips. When I wear lipstick my lips become extremely dry and they peel the next day. Can you recommend a product to help and maybe even a lipstick brand that I could wear? Thanks so much!

Question from Cindi

Question

Hi, I recently developed a rash on the side of my underarm (just outside of the underarm area). I thought it was just heat or friction, but it has been a week and it has not gone away or shown any change. It doesn’t hurt, but its sensitive, red ans makes me feel self conscious in strappy shirts. Is there something else that could’ve caused this and what is the best way to treat it?

Question

Hello Dr M.

I have major sensitive skin with terrible discoloration, and now I have developed a massive rash that and with all the products that I have tried both natural and chemical based, my face just burns and since it is sensitive to every thing I have tried, it has now gotten flaky and I also have hyper-pigmentation. I was told to get persivate cream and cetaphil clanser and lotion, but my skin burns and dries after moisturizing. what should I do next?
