    Good morning. Itching around the public region, limited to the hairy portion I guess. This may be due to a fungal infection. What you should do first is to shave off the hair. Observe for rash or any form of lesions. For the discomforting itching, you can you antihistamines like piriton or loratidine for now.

    How do I get rid / remove skin tags. I was not having them before before and it's on the increase all over my face neck and breast region. Please what could have caused/triggered it?

    There are different lesions that people generally refer to as skin tags. Most of them are harmless and only remain as mere tag on he skin. Occasionally though, one or two might be a pointer to a more serious condition. What you should do is to see a dermatologist or at least a doctor to look at the lesions for you and tell you if it is something you need to worry about aside the cosmetic effects.

    I react to sulphurnamides. I hope portion does not have it. Any cream to apply?

    If you reacts to sulphur containing drugs you should be careful of what you use. For skin tags, local cream application has not be found to be helpful. best is to seek the service of dermatologist. cheers

    My mum recently relocated back to Nigeria from Uk and she has high cholesterol and she is on special diet. While in UK she was able to manage the diet well but here her options are limited due to non availability of some food items. Please can you recommend some food that are readily available in our environment
    Dr. Babalola I answered:

    Well, if the issue is about high cholesterol, what she needs essentially is to avoid foods rich in animal fat. Lean meat are available at Shoprites and other outlets around. But generally, most of our staple food items in Nigeria are okay, if she can consume them in moderate quantity. So tell her to avoid animal fat, use less of our local palm oil because of the high cholesterol level.
