I had earlier taken a Isotretion for my acne treatment because of which my skin became really dry and it led me to having Rosacea eventually. Before visiting Dr. Ballani, I visited several other doctors but couldn’t get any relief.
Amazing doctor, soft spoken. I had visited her for the treatment of fungal infection, problem since 1 year back. ( Tenia cruris) also called jock itch. Her prescribed medications was very effective. She prescribed me 15 days medicine but I am OK within 5 days. Thank you Doctor.
