Answer

I’m so sorry to hear you are battling with this issue. Pigmentation is a real problem and it requires a combination of good treatments and your dedication in using the correct products to treat it and prevent any more from forming. What we need to do firstly is to treat the pigmentation that is already there, and make sure we get you on to a product that will enhance the results of your treatments while preventing the formation of new pigmentation at the same time. I would have to take a good look at your skin to give you the best advice, but I would in most cases suggest a combination of chemical resurfacing, with some laser and the use of transdermal mesotherapy. You would also have to make sure you use a pigmentation inhibitor, something like Lunixyl or Neostrata’s Enlighten Serum or Skin Medica’s Lytera serum, and of course you cannot go without a good sunblock on any exposed skin (something like Heliocare FX Gel).

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?
