Ear Infection Symptoms & Treatment Options

An ear infection is one of the most common reasons young children go to the doctor, but a new study shows the best treatment may be no treatment at all. Cleveland Clinic pediatrician Dr. Allison Brindle discusses ear infection treatment options for children including whether antibiotics are warranted immediately or if parents can wait to see if the ear infection symptoms clear up on its own.

Canker Sores | How To Get Rid Of Canker Sores | Mouth Ulcer Treatment

Canker Sores or Mouth Ulcer. This video is on treatment, causes and home remedies to get rid of canker sores.

The mouth ulcer, also known as canker sores or aphthous ulcers. Can be surprisingly painful but the good news is in this video I’m going to teach you how to treat and prevent it.

WHAT IS A MOUTH ULCER:
Mouth ulcers are common and should clear up on their own within a week or 2. They’re rarely a sign of anything serious but may be uncomfortable to live with.

Mouth ulcers are usually red or yellow and appear inside the mouth, on the cheeks or lips. Ulcers can also appear on the tongue. You may have more than one ulcer at a time and they can change in size.

Mouth ulcers aren’t contagious and shouldn’t be confused with cold sores. Cold sores appear on the lips or around the mouth and often begin with a tingling, itching or burning sensation.

If you have several mouth ulcers please visit your doctor if you have any of the following additional symptoms, this can be a symptom of:

• Hand, foot and mouth disease, which also causes a rash on the hands and feet
• Oral lichen planus, which causes a white, lacy pattern inside the cheeks

For pictures and more information on mouth ulcers please visit:
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/mouth-ulcers/

MOUTH ULCER CAUSES:
Various factors have been suggested to precipitate recurrent aphthous ulcers including:

• Oral trauma
• Anxiety or stress
• Certain foods (including chocolate, coffee, peanuts, and gluten-containing products)
• Stopping smoking
• Hormonal changes related to the menstrual cycle
• Iron or Vitamin B12 deficiencies
• A long-term condition – such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), coeliac disease or Behçet’s disease
• Medications – including some NSAIDs, beta-blockers or nicorandil

MOUTH ULCER TREATMENTS:
Mouth ulcers need time to heal and there is no quick fix.

A pharmacist can recommend a treatment to speed up healing, prevent infection or reduce pain, for example:

• Steroid lozenges these can be quite effective at reducing the pain and may even help ulcers heal more quickly.

• Chlorhexidine mouthwash this isn’t quite as effective at reducing the pain however it may help mouth ulcers health more quickly and prevent them from becoming infected.

Chlorhexidine mouthwash causes brown staining on the surface of teeth if used for 4 weeks or longer. This is a type of staining that comes off after scaling and polishing by a dental professional. For more information on this mouthwash please read the information leaflet and speak to your pharmacist.

Whether you use steroid lozenges or chlorhexidine mouthwash for best results it’s always best to start in the early stages of the ulcer that way it has the best chance of preventing the ulcer from developing and speed up the healing process.

MOUT ULCER PAIN RELIEF:
The next treatments don’t really prevent an ulcer from fully developing but are more useful for pain relief. This includes soothing protective pastes, paracetamol, ibuprofen, numbing spray or mouthwashes containing benzydamine and salt water mouthwashes.

To make a salt water mouthwash:
Add one teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and rinse gently around mouth. Remember to spit the water out, It can be done at least four times a day for four to five days.

With all medication always read the information leaflet and speak to your pharmacist to make sure you are suitable to take it.

WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR OR DENTIST:
If your mouth ulcer,
• Lasts longer than 3 weeks
• Keeps coming back
• Becomes more painful and red – this may be a sign of an infection

Although most mouth ulcers are harmless, a long-lasting mouth ulcer is sometimes a sign of mouth cancer. It’s best to get it checked.

My Melasma Treatment – How I Got Rid of the Brown Patches on My Face

My Melasma Treatment - How I Got Rid of the Brown Patches on My Face

http://AMAskincare.com 949.428.4500 Hi I’m Mina, I am a dentist. I had a hyperpigmentation problem of my face that hit me after menopause. I went to another dermatologist she tried everything to get rid of my melasma. We did many different laser melasma treatments. The brown patches on my face would lighten and within 3 days they would come back. After trying every melasma treatment she had to throw at me I ended up with the same hyperpigmentation symptoms and then I basically gave up trying to find a cure.

One day I stumbled on to Dr. Pien’s website, AMA Skincare. Reading the reviews there were many other women that had the same pigmentation problems and they had gotten to the point where they did not have to wear makeup anymore. So I said, OK, for my birthday present I’m going to try and treat my melasma one more time. We did the laser treatment and I am a special case but the difference with Dr. Pien is that she has every different type of laser. It’s not like when you go to other dermatologists were they have one or two lasers and if you only have a hammer, everything is a nail. So they will try what they have. Dr. Pien has every possible laser to treat melasma that you can think of. She’s high tech and she is very capable but on top of that she is very caring. She cares about the results of her melasma treatments. She cares about the patients.

I was about to give up on getting rid of the brown patches on my face and she told me “you know what, let me try”. We tried little things and I am hyper-sensitive. What would work on a normal person would actually make me hyper react and that could be a very common thing with asians. For me, she worked with me to the point that I have no makeup on right now. Before, if I walked out people would think that I was Pippy Longstockings with all the colors and freckles and brown patches on the cheeks and everything. I would not be caught dead outside without makeup. Now I feel very confident, I can walk around without makeup on. I actually don’t wear foundation anymore I just put on sunblock.

The main thing is that, Dr. Pien is by far the best laser surgeon that is around in this area. She’s a great clinician, she’s a caring doctor. The staff is very caring and very professional. I swear by her. I know there are a lot of women out there that have lost hope on finding a treatment for their melasma. I know that they are thinking I’ve tried all the different treatments for hyperpigmentation and they are all the same. I have a lot of Asian friends who are in my same boat and I keep telling them I’m the guinea pig, look at my skin. I was the worst case. I’m telling you this whole area right here on my cheek was brown. The melasma is gone and it doesn’t come back. This laser hyperpigmentation treatment does work and don’t lose hope but you have to come to AMA Skincare because she will work with you. Everybody is different and requires a different laser treatment for their melasma. Don’t expect the treatment to be the same for everyone. It’s biological, you can’t expect it to be the same for everybody. The fact of the matter is, Dr. Pien will get down to the bottom of your hyperpigmentation problem and she will fix whatever you need to have fixed.

How To Get Rid of Acne | Best Spot Treatment | How To Use Benzoyl Peroxide | Prevent Acne (2018)

How To Get Rid of Acne and Spots on Face | How To Stop Acne For Men and Women | Best Acne Treatment | How To Use Benzoyl Peroxide For Acne | How To Prevent Acne Spots | How To Stop Acne Breakouts | Acne Treatment UK

Acne is a common skin condition that affects myself and most people at some point their lives. In this weeks video I’ve first given a short explanation of why we get acne followed by tips on skincare, treatment and what can make acne worse.

Leave a comment below with how you get on and share any of your own useful tips which other may found helpful too! The most important thing to remember is that acne is treatable and can be improved. So if you have any friends or family who would benefit from this video then feel free to spread the word. Thank you.

TYPE OF ACNE SPOTS:
There are six main types of spot caused by acne,

• Blackheads – small black bumps that develop on the skin; they’re not filled with dirt, but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces pigmentation.
• Whiteheads – have a similar appearance to blackheads, but may be firmer and won’t empty when squeezed.
• Papules – small red bumps that may feel tender or sore.
• Pustules – similar to papules, but have a white tip in the centre, caused by a build-up of pus.
• Nodules – large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painful.
• Cysts – the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they’re large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarring

WHAT CAN I DO IF I HAVE ACNE:
These self-help techniques may be useful:

• Don’t wash affected areas of skin more than twice a day. Frequent washing can irritate the skin and make symptoms worse.
• Wash the affected area with a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water. Very hot or cold water can make acne worse.
• Don’t try to “clean out” blackheads or squeeze spots. This can make them worse and cause permanent scarring.
• Completely remove make-up before going to bed.
• If dry skin is a problem, use a fragrance-free, water-based emollient.
• Change your pillow case and face towel daily with a fresh laundered one. When not washed frequently, pillowcases and towels can contribute to acne breakouts because of the accumulation of bacteria, dirt, and oils. These come from the environment and from our own skin and hair from daily use. This small tip helped me a lot with my acne.

Although acne can’t be cured, it can be controlled with treatment that are available at pharmacies.

WHEN TO SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE:
Even mild cases of acne can cause distress. If your acne is making you feel very unhappy or you can’t control your spots with over-the-counter medication, see your GP.

Also see your GP if you develop nodules or cysts, as they need to be treated properly to avoid scarring. Try to resist the temptation to pick or squeeze the spots, as this can lead to permanent scarring.

Treatments can take up to three months to work, so don’t expect results overnight.

HOW TO REDUCE SKIN IRRITATION OF BENZOYL PEROXIDE:
If your skin does become irritated then stop using it until the irritation goes. Then try again with a lower strength, or reduce the time it is left on your skin before washing off. To prevent skin irritation, the following may help:

• Most people can tolerate the 5% preparation but if it irritates then try the 2.5% once the irritation settles. If you wish to increase the strength, do it gradually.
• Use a water-based preparation (rather than an alcohol-based one).
• Apply once daily at first and wash off after several hours.
• Gradually increase the length of time left on the skin.
• Aim to put on twice daily when you get used to it.

For more advice speak to your pharmacist.

Chicken Pox Treatment | How To Treat Chickenpox | Symptoms of Chickenpox | Signs Of Chicken Pox

Hey all, this weeks video is about Chickenpox and how to treat it. I think I have had over 300 messages from parents to do a video on this topic so without further ado here it is.

Leave a comment below with how you get on and feel free to share any of your own useful tips which others may found helpful. If you have any friends or family who would benefit from this video then feel free to spread the word.

WHAT IS CHICKENPOX:
Chickenpox is a highly contagious infection, which means it spreads easily from person to person. If you’ve not had chickenpox before and someone in your household gets it, it’s very likely you’ll catch it too.

Chickenpox is a common infection caused by the varicella zoster virus. It causes an itchy, spotty rash. The spots start flat then become raised and blistered, before crusting over. For most people, chickenpox isn’t serious. You’ll probably feel better after a week or so.

You can catch chickenpox at any time of year, but it’s most likely in spring. It’s most common in children under 10, but you can catch it at any age. Once you have had chickenpox, you’re very unlikely to catch it again. About nine out of 10 adults are immune as a result of catching chickenpox when they were a child.

If you’ve had chickenpox, the varicella zoster virus will stay dormant in your body for the rest of your life. At any time later in life, the virus could be reactivated, causing shingles.

SYMPTOMS OF CHICKENPOX:
1. Chickenpox starts with red spots. They can appear anywhere on the body.
2. The spots fill with fluid. The blisters may burst. They might spread or stay in a small area.
3. The spots scab over. More blisters might appear while others scab over.

Other symptoms:
You might get symptoms before or after the spots, including:

• A high temperature above 38C
• Aches and pains, and generally feeling unwell
• Loss of appetite

Chickenpox is very itchy and can make children feel miserable, even if they don’t have many spots. Chickenpox is usually much worse in adults.

If you’re not sure it’s chickenpox you can also visit the following link which includes pictures that will help:
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/chickenpox/
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/rashes-babies-and-children/

IMPORTANT INFORMATION & WHEN TO SEEK URGENT MEDICAL ATTENTION:
• If you have chickenpox don’t be around pregnant women, newborn babies and people with a weakened immune system, as it can be dangerous for them.
• Don’t use ibuprofen unless advised to do so by your doctor, as it may cause a serious skin infections called necrotising fasciitis.
• Don’t give aspirin to children under 16.

Speak to a GP if:
• You’re not sure it’s chickenpox.
• The skin around the blisters is red, hot or painful (signs of infection)
your child is dehydrated.
• You’re concerned about your child or they get worse.

Tell the receptionist you think it’s chickenpox before going in. They may recommend a special appointment time if other patients are at risk.

Ask for an urgent GP appointment if:
• You’re an adult and have chickenpox.
• You’re pregnant and haven’t had chickenpox before and have been near someone with it.
• You have a weakened immune system and have been near someone with chickenpox.
• You think your newborn baby has chickenpox.

In these situations, your GP can prescribe medicine to prevent complications. You need to take it within 24 hours of the spots coming out.

If you have any further questions please speak to your pharmacist or other healthcare professionals.

Laser Scar Removal Treatment – Get Rid of Scars

Laser Scar Removal Treatment - Get Rid of Scars

http://AMAskincare.com Our proprietary laser scar removal treatment protocols will engage your own natural physiological regenerative capacity and your skin will remodel itself. Fading those scars away. Blending those scars back into your skin. With each laser scar removal treatment you will watch them fade away.

If you have a stubborn hypertrophic or keloid scars, especially on areas of your body that you don’t want to conceal such as your face, you may have tried a variety of ineffective treatments to get rid of that scar that may have left you disillusioned and depressed.

At AMA Skincare, we understand the frustration that scars cause our patients. This is why we have developed a unique, multiple-modality approach to delicately and artfully get rid of your scar. Gradually blending it in with the surrounding skin. This gives or patients the dramatic scar revision results they are hoping for.

All of our scar removal treatments are comprehensively customized for each patient, due to the fact that every scar, hypertrophic, keloid, is different in composition and structure from all other scars. Essentially, every scar is an anomaly. Most of our scar treatment regimens will require about 5 or 7 laser treatment sessions and a specific combination of non-laser modalities, such as Physiological Regulating Medicine (PRM), Collagen Induction Acupuncture (CIA), and hyperbaric oxygen treatments.

Our multiple modality approach to getting rid of scars is what makes us able to deliver superior results over other scar removal treatments and creams. It’s all about our artful laser remodeling of the scar. Delicately and gradually our laser scar removal treatment will blend the scar with the rest of your skin.

3 to 4 different lasers are used per session as well has many non laser modalities in a typical laser scar removal treatment protocol. To even out coloration and blend the scar with the surrounding skin a laser color blending treatment is administered. If the scar is red in color due to excess vascularization, we target the micro vasculature to eliminate the redness using a different type of laser. Once the redness is gone, an intense collagen laser treatment utilizing 2 to 3 different lasers is administered to stimulate the production of new, healthy collagen. This will fill the scar with new collagen from the inside out. Finally, an epidermal resurfacing laser is used to smooth out the surface of the scar removing it’s roughness, discolorations, wrinkles and other imperfections.

After the discoloration has been corrected, the natural production of collagen within the scar is stimulated with carefully selected, intense collagen treatments. These treatments have been designed to accelerate the removal of old, deteriorated collagen fibers deep beneath your skin that are beyond repair through your body’s own physiological processes as well as remodel less-damaged collagen with new, younger collagen. These collagen treatments are also capable to encouraging the fibroblast cells that exist through your dermis to produce new, young, and healthy collagen within two to three procedures.

The final step of each scar removal treatment is to smooth out the surface of the scar and the skin with an epidermal resurfacing laser, or as it is more commonly known, a laser peel. Laser peels have the ability to create smooth skin by removing a predetermined section of your skin’s surface layer (the skin cells that make up this top layer are technically dead) and along with it, any imperfections, fine wrinkles, discolorations, and/or roughness that exist on it. Permanently getting rid of that scar.
