Face tan, oily &skin tan.

Hi, I'm a 22 year old male. From years on till now, my skin has become 8 to 10 times darker than the rest of my body. My skin always sweats even after applying top brands of sunscreens. My skin color on face, neck and hands differ much from rest of the body. What should I consider for treatment, homeopathy/orthopaedic?

1. You are tanning (because at 22 years of age I am assuming that you have a job / are in college which exposes you more to the sun), and thus the only way to get your normal color back is limiting your sun exposure. By that I mean that only sunscreens don't work... umbrellas, scarves, full sleeved shirts and if you drive a bike then helmets (that cover your face) work better. 2. All sunscreens (irrespective of brands at times)induce a little amount of sweating after being applied. I usually suggest my patients to dab/dust a little talcum powder after applying the sunscreen so that the sweat gets absorbed. 3. And you need to visit an allopathic dermatologist not an orthopaedician. Orthopedic surgeons treat bone issues. And as an allopathic dermatologist myself I will always suggest Allopathy and not Homeopathy.

But, I will still ask you to stop self treating yourself. There is more to skin care than just sunscreens. So visit a dermatologist and you should benefit.
