Treatment for All Skin Diseases
There are over 2,000 different skin diseases that not only affect the appearance but also affect the self-confidence and the quality of life. Skin is the longest and the most exposed organ of our body; and tends to fall prey to different medical conditions. It serves to protect our bodies from harmful elements every day and is also a mirror to our inner health. It is usually indicative of a deeper, more serious systemic problem. For example, excessive skin dryness may suggest a thyroid imbalance. Frequent non-healing boils point to diabetes and a scaly skin could mean an autoimmune disorder. Many skin problems or skin diseases are psychosomatic and result from stress and anxiety. There is a strong connection between the way you feel and the way your skin looks.
Some of the common skin diseases that we treat at Dr Batra’s™ are:
Acne : Acne is one of the most common skin problems affecting people globally. According to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information, acne affects approximately 9.4% of the world's population, with the highest prevalence in adolescents. It affects over 90% of men and 80% of women in all ethnic groups. It is commonly referred to as ‘pimples’ or ‘zits’. The condition is not life-threatening, but can lead to scarring of the skin (acne scar). It can be an indication of a deeper problem like polycystic ovarian syndrome or thyroid disorders. It causes more damage to the patient's psyche than to the skin and therefore needs immediate and effectiveacne treatment .
Eczema : Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema is a chronic skin problem that is characterized by red, inflamed and itchy skin. It is commonly seen in children but can affect adults as well. According to the National Centre of Biotechnology, children with atopic dermatitis or eczema have higher levels of emotional distress and more behavioral problems than healthy children or children with minor skin problems. Eczema skin problem tends to flare up periodically and may be accompanied by asthma in some cases.
Psoriasis : Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin disorder that speeds up the life-cycle of skin cells. This results in rapid buildup of the cells on the surface of the skin. This further leads to formation of scales and red patches. These psoriasis patches are most often associated with itchy skin and can sometimes be painful. Psoriasis symptoms usually occur on the scalp (scalp psoriasis), elbows, knees, lower back and genitals. In some cases, psoriasis can also affect the fingernails (nail psoriasis).
Vitiligo : Vitiligo is an autoimmune skin problem characterized by white patches on skin, A pigment called melanin produced by melanocytes imparts skin its natural colour. When melanocytes die or are unable to function, it results in the loss of melanin (or loss of skin pigment). This loss of pigment results in milky white patches or vitiligo. It is a chronic skin disorder that can cause extreme emotional stress in people suffering from it. In many cases, vitiligo has also lead to social rejection, trouble in relationships and marriages.
Lichen planus : Lichen planus is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that affects the skin, mouth and genitals. It is characterized by rows or clusters of dark, raised and flat-topped skin lesions. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information,lichen planus is an autoimmune skin disease that affects almost 0.5 to 2% of the world’s population.
Warts : Warts, also known as verruca, are small, non-cancerous, usually painless growths on the skin. Warts skin disease is caused by a virus called the human papillomavirus. Though skin warts are harmless, they can be quite disfiguring, leading to low self-confidence in patients.
At Dr Batra’s™, our homeopathic doctors diagnose skin diseases based on the visible signs and symptoms. They take into account the patient’s medical history and conduct a detailed examination of the skin problem. Dr Batra’s™ uses India’s first 3-D imaging device for accurate analysis and evaluation of the patient’s skin disorder. Based on an advanced optical technology developed by scientists in Dublin, this 3-D imaging device captures the skin’s condition up to 10 mm below the surface of the skin. This state-of-the-art technology helps to diagnose the skin problem at least 12 weeks in advance, even before visible symptoms appear. This helps to prevent severe skin infections and even saves on the treatment time.
Genetic Assessment : : In many cases, our genes are responsible for skin problems such as vitiligo, eczema, acne etc. At Dr Batra’s™, we can predict the occurrence of skin diseases years before it actually appears with the help of Geno Homeopathy. This treatment requires a simple saliva test that not only helps us predict the probability of suffering from skin diseases but also helps in treating the root cause. It reduces the chances of its occurrence through preventive homeopathic medicines, appropriate diet and necessary lifestyle changes. Since the diagnosis in Geno Homeopathy is based on individualized genetic predisposition; it is, therefore, the most individualized and customized treatment for skin ailments.
