Birthmarks treatment and remedies

All about Birthmarks

SKIN – All about Birthmarks

Each and everyone will have birthmarks in one or other places. Since they are usually permanent, they are called as mother’s mark or angel’s kiss. There are two types of birthmarks, i.e., pigmentation mark (Brown or Black) and vascular mark (Red or Blue).
Pigmentation mark is called as mole and vascular mark is called as or Naevi. They can be flat or raised and regular or irregular in shape. Also, both the moles and usually vary in size (from tiny dot to mammoth) and happens to grow slightly after the birth. Sometimes, it may also regress in course of time. They are mostly harmless and painless. But, if any of the birthmarks happens to grow in fast manner, surely one need to be cautious and have to consult a physician immediately, since they can turn to be cancerous by any of the time.
Birthmark is a congenital (developmental) malformation of blood vessels. Medically, it is treated as benign tumour of blood vessels (proliferation of inner lining (endothelial) cells of blood vessels). It is the most common benign tumour of new born / children. “Haemal” is meant for pertaining to blood or blood vessels, “oma” is meant for any tumour and “Angioma” is meant for the tumour whose cells tend to form blood vessels. In general, it is just like having extra or over grown or enlarged blood vessels (with normal cells / linings). It is otherwise called as Infantile or Haemartoma.
INCIDENCES – Its prevalence seem to affect around 5% of children. It is most commonly seen in girls than boys and especially with premature babies. Any how, it can occur even in adult too in any of the time. It commonly occurs as single especially in head or around neck area, but can also occur anywhere (outer or inner parts of the body).
CAUSES – The exact reason for is still unrevealed. Even though s are not usually hereditary, siblings of the affected child often seems to have S.
TYPES – Chiefly there are three types of s Capillary (superficial angiomatous naevi) – Commonly seen in scalp, face, neck, lip, etc and is reddish in colour. They are otherwise called as simplex or Strawberry birthmark or Spider angiomas or Naevi. Cavernous (subcutaneous angiomatous naevi) – are usually deep inside the body and reflect as bluish or bluish red in colour. It is common in lips, tongue, scalp, face, liver, buttocks, etc. Further it is commonly associated with internal organs.
Plexiform (mixed angiomatous naevi) – This form of is some what dangerous if happened to bleed. Most often it occurs in temple area of face.

 – Most of the time, remains only as a cosmetic disfigurement without any other symptom. The appearance of a hemangioma depends on its site, occurrence, growth, involution nature, etc. They may undergo spontaneous regression or involution. Occasionally, it can cause symptoms according to the place and size. 

Commonly, it Occurs congenitally or just after the birth
  • Reddish or Bluish red in appearance
  • Looks like bag of worms (or like spider) with enlarged / engorged blood vessels seen underneath the skin
  • Has active blood supply and is Compressible (i.e., fades on pressure)
Burning / itching / feeling hot over the patch
D IAGNOSIS superficial is simple. Just clinical examination will fix it. Any how, in case of deep s and to rule out complications Doppler study / Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Angiography can help to fix the diagnosis and to plan the treatment. In case of any suspicion of malignancy, biopsy may be required.
COMPLICATIONS - Mostly there won’t be any complications at all. Any how, occasionally there may be
  • Discomfort due to uneven surface
  • Bleeding due to abrasions / Rupture due to injury
  • Ulceration and infection
  • Thrombus (clot) formation due to pooling of blood
  • Life threatening with bleeding or other organ failures due to emboli formations
  • Emotional distress due to cosmetic disfigurement which occurs in throat, lungs, eye, ear, etc may threaten sufferer & compel one to opt for surgical excision at the earliest.

Small s often get fade on its own and large s has more complications with interventions. So, in general, hemangiomas are often left untreated with “wait and watch” line of management. Anyhow, for cosmetic betterment, sometimes conservative treatment will be opted with injection of scelorising chemical agent to get the size reduced along with steroidal pills. Ligation of feeding vessels will also be attempted. The advancement of plastic surgery and laser seems to benefit many hemangiomas, i.e., with excision and skin grafting. Surgical interventions may be in need of compulsion in those cases of involving vital organs and also in those cases of recurrent bleeding and discomfort. Scar formation and keloid growth are few complications with surgical options.
Homeopathic Approach 

Even though is not a serious disorder, it needs proper care to avoid development of complications. Even though pigmentation birthmarks (moles) cannot be treated, vascular birthmarks (s) can be treated well with homeopathic medicines. In homeopathy, is not considered as a pure surgical disease. Also, it won’t just rely on external treatment such as creams / ointments / injections, etc for management, since they all have very little or no value in treatment of . According to homeopathy, localized approach or treatment will usually suppress / mask the complaint for a time being and will fix the disease else where. Homeopathy can fade them with its effective internal medicines & constitutional approach.
To avoid discomfort, pain, itching, ulceration, bleeding & unwanted growth of the , treatment should be taken as early as possible or otherwise, it can only be maintained. Homeopathic medicines commonly used in cases of s are Acid Nit, Aesculus Hip, Apis mel, Arnica, Ars alb, Aurum mur, Baryta mur, Bryonia, Calc carb, Calc flour, Causticum, Graphites, Hamemelis, Hepasulf, Hypericum, Lachesis, Lycopodium, Millefolium, Nat Sulp, Nux Vom, Phosphorus, Plumbum met, Pulsatilla, Secale cor, Silicea, Sulphur, Thuja, Vipera, etc. These Medicines should be taken under the advice and diagnosis of a qualified Homeopath.

What is homeopathy ?
Homoeopathic medicines are very refined and are given in minimal and minute doses, so there are no side-effects.

Homoeopathic medicines can be used in all types of disease, at all ages, in all circumstances. By acting in a natural way it increases immunity. It also removes tendencies, allergies and thus helps mankind to live in a modern world that is highly polluted. It also reduces the impact of hereditary-familial diseases by raising the immunity level. Also, in some painful conditions like peptic ulcer, patients cannot take Allopathy painkillers since the ulcer will get aggravated. But in Homoeopathy we can treat in a better way the painful condition and peptic ulcer. Homoeopathy medicines act through nerve endings in the tongue – the doctor will merely ask the patient to place the medicine under the tongue and let it melt slowly – so they are no way related to the stomach or blood. So, even pregnant women can take these medicines safely.

Wonders of Homeopathy

Best Homeopathy TreatmentHomeopathy is gaining in acceptance the world over due to its nature of treatment. Homeopathy does wonders when applied scientifically. As Homeopathy works on certain principles, it never fails within its limitations. However, a Homeopath may fail in treating the patient when he cannot elicit the characteristic symptom of the patient to match with the drug symptoms for selecting similimum (apt drug in right dosage). Homeopathy usually believes in internal treatment rather than topical applications or external interventions (removal of the disease or its effects using surgery, acids, freezing, burning, banding, laser, radiation, cauterization, ointments, liniments, oils, etc.) since internal medicines can only throw/expel the disease. Internal Homeopathic medicines treat patient as a whole by supporting the body’s own process of healing (immune mechanism) without any side-effects.
