Corn Removal Surgery Procedure
Corn surgery is most efficient of all methods in giving a permanent solution and relief from pain caused by corns. It is effective in getting rid of the friction, pressure and any other uncomfortable sensations. Corn removal surgery procedure may be necessary where the corns are severe. This is mostly caused by pressure being exerted on the area of the corn by something else which cannot be treated by normal corn treatments.
Corn surgery shaves down part of the bone causing pressure thus leading to formation of corns. Other deformities that cause corns can also be corrected using surgery. The nature of removal surgery conducted is determined by the severity of the condition and the degree of structural misalignment. Some of these are as follows.
The simplest involves removal of corn with no bone work done. Realignment surgery is not necessary in this one and healing is first and takes between 10-14 days.
In other instances, surgery is conducted together with tendon lengthening. This procedure involves the stretching of tendons to allow for the toes to attain a normal posture in case they were abnormally elevated and thus contributing to formation of corns.
In cases of bone deformity, the surgical process is aimed at correcting this. During the procedure, the doctor makes an incision on top of the toe that is affected mostly the fifth toe. To allow exposure of the head of the proximal phalanx bone, ligaments in the toe are freed. This is then cut and taken away.
Where the toe is curled, the tendons at the bottom of the toe are released to allow the toe to straighten up. Depending on the situation, a small incision could be made at the base of the fourth toe. This will smooth the region. Where a toe is too long, more ligaments are removed to shorten it up.
In some cases, damage arising from soft corns is so severe that fixing the bone problem is not sufficient to heal the affected area. This normally happens when the skin in between the toes is extremely damaged. When this is the case, the skin between the toes that is damaged has to be eliminated.
When this is the case, a procedure known as syndactylism is carried out. It involves getting rid of the damaged skin in between the toes. Mostly the fourth and fifth are the ones that are affected. Once this has been done, the two toes are sewn together. While this may be drastic, there is no loss of the foot’s functions experienced.
Foot Corn Removal Surgery
At times, foot corn removal surgery will require a forefoot reconstruction to be carried out. In such cases, the surgery is complex and meant to correct severe deformity. It involves cutting bones and re positioning them. A complex re-balancing of soft tissues and tendons is required as well.
Toe Corn Removal Surgery
Toe corn removal surgery involves correcting toe deformities as well as removing soft corn tissues. Correcting these deformities helps to get rid of the root cause of the corn. It is a great way of providing pain relief permanently for recurring corns.

Moles, also called as Nevi. Medically, are clumps of pigmented cells that appear as black or brown spots on the skin. They materialize when cells, called Melanocytes which are responsible for the skin’s natural color, do not spread evenly but grow in clumps on the skin. Moles are thus darker than the natural color, and on further exposure to sunlight or during pregnancy, may darken more. Moles are also prone to hair growth on them.
Lighter skinned people tend to be more susceptible to it than those with darker skin, and can have an average of 10 to 40 moles spread on their body.
Our clinic provides mole removal treatment in Bangalore. To check if a mole is malignant, a sample of the tissue is taken. If the result is positive, an excision of the entire mole and its surrounding tissues is performed. A similar procedure is carried out for cosmetic purposes of mole removal, which is generally pain-free and common.
There are two prescribed methods for mole removal depending upon the type.
One method called the “Shave Excision”, which is mostly used for smaller moles, is where the space around the mole is numbed, cut around and beneath, and is thus removed by using a small blade. This procedure does not involve any stitches.
The other method called the “Excision Surgery”, which is mostly used to eliminate prospective malignant moles, is where the mole and space around it, is cut and removed, using a scalpel. This procedure necessitates stitches to seal the skin back.
Laser Mole Removal Procedure
Removing a mole using a laser involves numbing the area using local anesthesia. Afterwards, a laser is used to excise the pigmentation in the mole. The pigment is then cleared away by the body’s natural healing processes. A scab forms over the mole which eventually falls away.
The area may turn darker for a few days after the procedure. However, this can be covered up by cosmetics. Patients should avoid exposing the area to sunlight for at least six weeks and use sunscreen when they are outside.
The procedure is generally safe and the risk of scarring is minimal (about 1 percent). Whether or not it is painful depends a lot on the patient’s pain threshold. Some people report feeling a slight tingling during the procedure that feels like someone is snapping a rubber band against their skin.

Fungal infections can affect any part of the body. Fungi are normally present in and on the body alongside various bacteria. When a fungus begins to overgrow, you can get an infection.
Onychomycosis, also called tinea unguium, is a fungal infection that affects either the fingernails or toenails. Fungal infections normally develop over time, so any immediate difference in the way your nail looks or feels may be too subtle to notice at first.
Common signs of a fungal nail infection include:
a distorted nail that may lift off from the nail bed.
an odor coming from the infected nail.
a brittle or thickened nail.
Who Is at Risk for Fungal Infections?
There are many different causes of fungal nail infections, and each cause has a treatment of its own. Although many of the causes of a fungal nail infection are preventable, some risk factors increase the likelihood of developing it. You’re more likely to develop a fungal nail infection if you:
have a disease that causes poor circulation.
are over age 65.
wear artificial nails.
have a nail injury.
have a skin injury around the nail.
have moist fingers or toes for an extended time.
have a weakened immune system.
wear closed-toe shoes, such as tennis shoes or boots.
It is the most common surgical procedure performed on the nail unit. It is the excision of the body of the nail plate from its primary attachments, the nail bed ventrally and the PNF dorsally. Avulsion of the nail plate may be initially performed to allow full exposure of the nail matrix before chemical or surgical matricectomy. Other indications for performing nail avulsion are to treat recalcitrant onychocryptosis; to excise tumors of the nail unit; to allow full examination and exploration of the nail bed, the nail matrix, the PNF and the LNF, and the nail grooves for the presence of pathology; or to use as a preliminary step before performing biopsy on the nail bed and the nail matrix.
An ingrown toenail is caused by the pressure from the ingrowth of the nail edge into the skin of the toe. Once the edge of the nail breaks through the skin, it produces inflammation. Initially presenting as a minor discomfort, it may progress into an infection in the adjacent skin (cellulitis) and/or become a reoccurring problem. Ingrown toenails most commonly affect the large (great) toes. An ingrown toenail is medically referred to as onychocryptosis.

When skin is injured, fibrous tissue, called scar tissue, forms over the wound to repair and protect the injury. In some cases, scar tissue grows excessively, forming smooth, hard growths called keloids. Keloids can be much larger than the original wound. They’re most commonly found on the chest, shoulders, earlobes, and cheeks. However, keloids can affect any part of the body. Although keloids aren’t harmful to your health, they may create cosmetic concerns.
Keloids occur from the overgrowth of scar tissue. Symptoms occur at a site of previous skin injury.The symptoms of keloids can include:
a localized area that is flesh-colored, pink, or red in color
a lumpy or ridged area of skin that’s usually raised
an area that continues to grow larger with scar tissue over time
an itchy patch of skin
Keloid scars tend to be larger than the original wound itself. They may take weeks or months to develop fully.
While keloid scars may be itchy, they’re usually not harmful to your health. You may experience discomfort, tenderness, or possible irritation from your clothing or other forms of friction. In rare instances, you may experience keloid scarring on a significant amount of your body. When this occurs, the hardened, tight scar tissue may restrict your movements.
Keloids are often more of a cosmetic concern than a health one. You may feel self-conscious if the keloid is very large or in a highly visible location, such as an earlobe or on the face. Sun exposure or tanning may discolor the scar tissue, making it slightly darker than your surrounding skin. This can make the keloid stand out even more than it already does. Keep the scar covered when you’re in the sun to prevent discoloration.

Fungal Infection treatment.
Fungal infection is a common infection in the tropics. There are different types of fungal infection but most of them favour areas of the body which are moist and sweaty like the feet, toes, groins, buttocks and nails. Some people with depressed immune response like diabetes can also have more recurrent or widespread fungal infections.
Fungal infection may be treated with creams if it is not severe. If it does not respond to creams, oral medication with anti-fungal tablets may be required. These are prescribed for 1 week to 3 months, depending on the site and severity of infection and the type of medication used. Sometimes skin or nail tests may be performed to confirm the fungal infection before starting treatment.
Tinea versicolor usually does not cause any symptoms but sometimes causes itching. However, it does cause many tan, brown, salmon, or white scaly patches to appear on the trunk, neck, abdomen, and occasionally the face. The patches may join to form larger patches. The patches do not tan, so in summer, when the surrounding skin tans, the patches may become obvious. People with naturally dark skin may notice lighter patches. People with naturally fair skin may get darker or lighter patches. Tinea versicolor is a mild infection and is not considered contagious.
Antifungal creams applied directly to the affected areas (topical), such as ketoconazole or terbinafinecream, may be used, as well as terbinafine solution spray. Prescription-strength selenium sulfide lotion is effective if applied to the affected areas (including the scalp) for 10 minutes a day for 2 weeks. Prescription ketoconazole shampoo is also effective. It is applied and washed off in 5 minutes. It is used as a single application or daily for 3 days. Other treatments include applying topical ketoconazole daily for 2 weeks and bathing with zinc pyrithione soap or sulfur-salicylic shampoo for 1 to 2 weeks.
Antifungal drugs taken by mouth, such as ketoconazole or fluconazole, are sometimes used to treat a widespread infection (see Table: Overview of Fungal Infections : Treatment). In addition, some people prefer the convenience of a drug taken by mouth. However, because these drugs may cause unwanted side effects and because tinea versicolor is a mild infection, topical drugs are usually preferred. Drugs taken by mouth do not prevent recurrence.
To lower the chance of recurrence, many doctors recommend practicing meticulous hygiene and using zinc pyrithione soap regularly or one of the other topical treatments monthly.

Rosacea is a common, chronic, incurable, adult acne-like skin condition that is easily controllable and medically manageable. Rosacea commonly affects the central third of the face, especially the nose, and has periodic ups and downs (flares and remissions). Rosacea symptoms and signs include redness of the face (easy facial blushing or flushing), tiny red pimples and fine red lines (telangiectasias) on the facial skin, rhinophyma (an enlarged, bulbous red nose, like W.C. Fields), and eye problems, such as swollen, red eyelids,conjunctivitis, and rosacea keratitis.
Rosacea (ro-zay-sha) is a common, acne-like benign skin condition of adults, with a worldwide distribution. Rosacea is estimated to affect at least 16 million people in the United States alone and approximately 45 million worldwide. Most people with rosacea are Caucasian and have fair skin.
The main symptoms and signs of rosacea include red or pink facial skin, small dilated blood vessels, small red bumps sometimes containing pus, cysts, and pink or irritated eyes. Many people who have rosacea may just assume they have very sensitive skin that blushes or flushes easily.
Rosacea is considered an incurable auto-inflammatory skin condition with periodic ups and downs. As opposed to traditional or teenage acne, most adult patients do not “outgrow” rosacea. Rosacea characteristically involves the central region of the face, mainly the forehead, cheeks, chin, and the lower half of the nose. It is most commonly seen in people with light skin and particularly in those of English, Irish, and Scottish backgrounds. Some famous people with rosacea include the former U.S. President Bill Clinton and W.C. Fields. Rosacea is not directly caused by alcohol intake, but it is presumed to aggravated by it. Rosacea is not considered contagious or infectious.
Rosacea may be mistaken for rosy cheeks,sunburn, or quite often, acne.
Rosacea triggers include alcohol, hot or spicy foods, emotional stress, and heat.
Rosacea can be a very bothersome and embarrassing condition.
Untreated rosacea tends to worsen over time.
Prompt recognition and proper treatment permit people with rosacea to enjoy life.

This disease is due to abnormal Skin pigmentation. In the lower layers of epidermis of our Skin, special cells called melanocytes cells form melanin pigment. The color of skin depends upon the quantity of melanin pigment produced by melanocytes. Larger the quantity of melanin pigment darker is the skin. In the diseased condition some or all of melanocytes get damaged or become non functional. Due to lack of melanin pigment, skin becomes white in affected parts. These affected parts have white spots in form of irregular patches of different sizes. White patches in skin may be symmetrical. Vitiligo also known as leucoderma or white skin disease may appear on any parts of human body and are not restricted to any particular organ. The vitiligo treatment is divided in 2 parts – 1st part to stop the disease from spreading with help of laser, PUVA and medicines & then treating the patches with melanocyte transfer or skin grafting commonly known as Vitiligo surgery.
Also Melanin is very important pigment in skin as it protects skin from harmful rays coming out from sun which have potential to cause skin burns and skin cancer. Vitiligo is not a communicable disease. White patches generally grow in size by the time.
This disease is found to be related with many other diseases such as alopecia, diabetes, typhoid, pernicious anemia etc. in some cases. The most disturbing and embarrassing consequences of vitiligo are lack of self confidence, inferiority complex, and many other social and psychological problems.
Vitiligo is found in almost all races in equal proportion irrespective of age and gender.

The exact cause of dandruff, also known as scurf or Pityriasis simplex capillitii, is unknown. However, most experts agree that dandruff is not caused by poor hygiene.Dandruff is a condition of the scalp that causes flakes of skin to appear and is often accompanied by itching. In some cases, it can be embarrassing and not easy to treat.
The following are factors that may contribute to dandruff:
1) Seborrheic dermatitis (irritated, oily skin)
People with seborrheic dermatitis are very prone to dandruff. Seborrheic dermatitis affects many areas of the skin, including the backs of the ears, the breastbone, eyebrows, and the sides of the nose.
The patient will have red, greasy skin covered with flaky white or yellow scales.
Seborrheic dermatitis is closely linked with Malassezia, a fungus that lives on everybody’s scalp and feeds
on the oils that our hair follicles secrete. Generally it will cause no problems at all. However, it can grow out of control.
When this happens, the scalp can become irritated and produce extra skin cells. These extra skin cells die and fall off; they mix with the oil from the hair and scalp and turn into what we see as dandruff.
2) Not enough hair brushing
People who do not comb or brush their hair regularly have a slightly higher risk of having dandruff – this is because they are not aiding the shedding of skin that combing or brushing provides.
People who are sensitive to yeast have a slightly higher risk of having dandruff, so it is logical to assume that yeast may play a part. Yeast-sensitive people who get dandruff often find that it gets better during the warmer months and worse during the winter.
UVA light from the sun counteracts the yeast. Some believe that, during the winter, the skin is drier because of exposure to extreme temperatures – hot rooms and the cold air outside – making dandruff more likely.
4) Dry skin
People with dry skin tend to get dandruff more often. Winter cold air, combined with overheated rooms is a common cause of itchy, flaking skin. People with dandruff caused by dry skin tend to have small flakes of dandruff; the flakes are not oily.
5) Not enough shampooing
Some people say that if an individual does not shampoo enough, there can be a buildup of oil and dead skin cells, causing dandruff. However, many experts doubt this is true.
6) Certain skin conditions
People with psoriasis, eczema, and some other skin disorders tend to get dandruff more frequently than other people.
7) Some illnesses
Adults with Parkinson’s disease and some other neurological illnesses are more prone to having dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis.
Patients recovering from heart attacks and strokes and some people with weak immune systems may also have dandruff more often than other people.
8) Reaction to hair or skin care products
Some people react to certain hair care products with a red, itchy, scaling scalp. Many experts say that shampooing too often may cause dandruff as it can irritate the scalp.
Some experts say that people who do not consume enough foods that contain zinc, B vitamins, and some types of fats are more prone to dandruff.
10) Mental stress
Experts believe there may be a link between stress and many skin problems.
One study found that 10.6 percent of people with HIV have seborrheic dermatitis.
