DermTV Why Can Birth Control Pills Discolor Your Skin DermTV Epi 267

Music Hello, I'm Dr. Neal Schultz pause and welcome to DermTV. I've been asked why birth control pills cause skin discoloration. The fact is female's hormones can cause the skin to become tan or brown. Generally speaking, it's called melasma or chloasma and when it occurs during pregnancy it's called the mask of pregnancy. The same female hormones estrogens which surge during your pregnancy is what causes the mask of pregnancy and those same female hormone estrogens are present in all birth control pills, hence the chloasma or melasma from birth control pills. Only.

About ten to twenty percent of women will get this from taking birth control pills. When it occurs, it's generally on the face, the breasts and the abdomen and usually on the face it's very symmetric so it occurs on both sides of the forehead, both upper cheeks, the whole upper lip and the chin. When it occurs on the abdomen, it's usually a straight line up and down your stomach and it's extremely sensitive to sunlight so if you have it and you go out in the sun without sun protection you can be sure it's.

Going to get much darker. We understand very well the science of why estrogens and ultravioletb independently and then even together cause the melanocytes your pigment forming cells to form more brown pigment. But what we don't understand is why only those pigment cells in the distribution of this mask on your forehead, on your cheeks, your chin or breasts and abdomen, why only those pigment cells are the ones that are affected. After your pregnancy, or if you stop taking birth control pills, usually the discoloration will fade, not necessarily completely but usually.

It will fade. But whether it goes away but itself or goes away from treatment, it comes back very easily, almost as if you've been sensitized or you're more susceptible. So, if you become pregnant again, or if you start taking a birth control pill again, you can be sure that discolorations are going to come back. But even without those estrogens, once you've had it, if you just go out in the sun without sun protection, it comes back again, almost as if the first experience with those estrogens had sensitized those cells and those areas just to be very sun sensitive.

Is it Normal to Itch a Lot During Pregnancy

Is it normal to itch a lot during pregnancy It depends on where the scratching is. Scratching at the skin on the stomach as it stretches is normal. That's because the skin is stretching out of shape, often so bad you get stretch marks. Those are actually scars from when the skin stretches faster than the underlying area. Does scar removal cream get rid of it No, but moisturizer can reduce the odds of stretch marks occurring in the first place plus relieve the itching. Good to know I can use something, because it seems like doctors say you can't use.

Anything. But you may be able to use something for the allergy reactions. I can That is a relief! It is safe enough for toddlers, and if the itching is an allergic reaction, it is safe enough for you. I don't know if it is allergic. Then it will make it easier for you to sleep until the problem has passed. It is like everything itches. If your breasts itch, it may be the same reason the stomach itches the breasts are growing faster than the skin. The solution, lots of lotion, is the same.

That's hard to use on my palms, since it can make everything as smeared and messy as a toddler would. Itchy palms and soles of the feet are related to the high estrogen levels. That'll go away after you have the baby. I've heard that you'll be so miserable in pregnancy that you look forward to labor, but I never thought it had any credence until now. Regardless of the cause, you could use mild soap and cold showers to relieve the skin irritation. Stay out of hot, humid environments since your body can't regulate heat well.
