Answer

I’m so sorry you are battling with this problem. Here is what I suggest. Neostrata makes a great product called Problem Dry Skin Cream. I have many great reports on this product and I have even used it myself. It is also very affordable. So that is what I would recommend for you to use on the skin to sort out that dryness. You also need to make sure that you are using a good facial sunblock every single day so that your blemishes do not get worse. Now, for your eye area, we need to be sure if these are in fact blemishes, pigmentation or dark circles caused by poor drainage as we would treat these all differently. In most cases, this ugly dark rings under the eyes can be vastly improved with dermal filler, but if these are due to pigmentation, then we have an entirely different problem on our hands. Would you be able to come and see me or one of our doctors at your nearest Skin Renewal Branch? That way I’d be able to ensure you get the correct advice and treatment.

Good day Dr. I developed dark marks around my mouth in December and tried using everything but they wouldn’t go away,I then went to the pharmacy where the gentleman there mixed persivate with aqueous cream and told me to use it,I used it and they went away however I’m worried about the effect it will have on my skin,I haven’t stopped using it. Is it going to damage my skin and have negative consequences later in life?
