There are over 2,000 different skin conditions. Skin problems not only affect the appearance but also affect your self-confidence and quality of life. Skin is the longest and the most exposed organ of our body, and tends to fall prey to medical conditions. It is also the mirror of your internal health; an apparently small skin problem is usually indicative of a deeper more serious systemic problem. For example, excessive dryness of the skin may suggest a thyroid imbalance. Frequent non-healing boils point to diabetes, and a scaly skin could mean an autoimmune disorder. Many skin problems are psychosomatic and result from stress and anxiety. There is a strong connect between the way you feel and the way your skin looks.
Some of the common skin conditions that we treat are:
Acne : Acne is one of the most common skin problems affecting people globally. It is commonly referred to as ‘pimples’ or ‘zits’. The condition is not life-threatening, but can lead to scarring of the skin. It can be an indication of a deeper problem like polycystic ovarian syndrome. It causes more damage to the patient's psyche than to the skin, and therefore needs immediate and effective acne treatment.
Eczema : Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is a chronic skin condition that is characterized by red, inflamed and itchy skin. It is commonly seen in children but can affect adults as well. Eczema skin disease tends to flare up periodically and may be accompanied by asthma in some cases.
Psoriasis : Psoriasis is a autoimmune skin condition that speeds up the life-cycle of skin cells. This results in rapid buildup of the cells on surface of the skin leading to rapid accumulation of extra skin cells that further lead to formation of scales and red patches. These psoriasis patches are most often associated with itching and can be sometimes painful.
Vitiligo : Characterised by white patches on skin, vitiligo occurs when skin loses a pigment called melanin which imparts skin with its native colour. It is a chronic condition that can cause extreme emotional stress in people suffering from it. In many people, vitiligo also leads to social rejection, trouble in relationships and marriage.
Lichen planus : Lichen planus is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the skin, mouth and genitals. It is characterized by rows or clusters of dark, raised and flat-topped skin lesions.
Warts : Warts, also known as verruca, are small, non-cancerous, usually painless growths on the skin. They are caused by a virus called the human papillomavirus. Though skin warts are harmless, they can be quite disfiguring leading to low self-confidence.
Our doctors can identify skin diseases based on the visible signs and symptoms, your medical history and examination of the skin. A diagnosis is done through the ultra-violet rays as well. Fathima Homoeo Speciality Centre clinics* also have India’s first 3-D Imaging device for accurate analysis and evaluation of your skin. Based on an advanced optical technology developed by scientists in Dublin, 3-D Imaging device captures the condition upto 10 mm below the surface of the skin. This helps to know the problem at least 12 weeks in advance before it can be seen on the skin by the naked eye. This helps to prevent the problem and even saves on the treatment time.
Genetic Assessment : In many cases, our genes are responsible for skin problems. At our clinics, we have developed the world’s first gene-targeted homeopathic therapy called Geno Homeopathy. It is carried out through a simple saliva test that not only helps us predict the probability and the chances of having skin problems but also helps in treating them from the root. It reduces your chances of getting skin problems through preventive medicine, appropriate diet and lifestyle changes. Since Geno Homeopathy is based on your individualized genetic predisposition, it is, therefore, the most individualized and customized treatment for your skin problems.
