Patient discussion about dermatological

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. will it ever go??? I have acne on my face for several months, and although I went to see a dermatologist and treat it, I still have these ugly pimples and zits on my face. I feel really ugly and sometimes I don't want to go to school, and just want to stat at my room not let anyone see me. Will it ever go away? What should I do?

A. Acne usually abates and disappears with time, but the chances for that depends on the specific type and features of the disease. If you still suffer from lesions despite treatment, you should consult your dermatologist and seek further help.

Q. What are first, second and third degree burns? What’s the difference between them and do they get treated in a different way?

A. Pain management for burns can be difficult since burns differ in type and severity. There are three types of burns:

First-degree burns are considered mild compared to other burns. They result in pain and reddening of the epidermis (outer layer of the skin).

Second-degree burns affect the epidermis and the dermis (lower layer of skin). They cause pain, redness, swelling, and blistering.

Third-degree burns go through the dermis and affect deeper tissues. They result in white or blackened, charred skin that may be numb.
Hope this helps.
