Patient discussion about facing

Q. Can scabies be on the face? About a week ago, several bumps, red and itchy, appeared on my face. I have had scabies on other parts of my body and although it feels quite similar, it doesn’t really look the same. Can it be scabies? Is it other thing?

A. If you indeed have scabies on your face, it may come from two sources: either from your scalp, where it hides when you treat the rest of your body, or your pillow. First you should be sure it's scabies (have you seen a doctor?) If it's scabies, try to wash all your pillows and change them, and then treat your face.

Q. Is there any way you can lose weight on your face? I am a male and I got chubby cheeks like girls and I don’t like it...is there any way you can lose weight on your face?

A. Hi Christopher, I’m not sure if there is, but you should like your face just the way it is, try some make-up and see how it goes, or rub your cheeks in a circular motion with your hands for about 45 seconds a day. Chubby cheeks can also come from liver problems, water retention from a high salt diet, excessive toxic buildup in the body, and of course poor choices in diet. Try exercise, facial massages, ice packs can help, or natural diuretic herbs like dandilion root extract.

You can try to draw attention to the center of your face: use some blush on your chick's apples, a little on your chin and add a little touch to the end of your nose. It'll shorten your face.
