Dear sir I face the problem about skin allergy for whole body for last 6 month, so please give me consultation about this problem.
Here are Cause, Symptoms and Treatments of Vitiligo
Hello, I am Dr. Shailnder Dhawan from Kayakalp from Faridabad, today we will be discussing about Vitiligo which is Leucoderma. This is a very important issue that the society is facing these days and I have chalked down a few points that we will be discussing today.
The first most important point is what is Vitiligo?
Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease and a long term skin condition. It is characterized by patches on the skin that lose pigment, like the way toxins arise from blood, they go in the body and attack the skin and this leads to the formation of white patches. This is also known as a genetic disorder which is born out of stressful conditions, it is viewed as a taboo in society.
There are many causes for Vitiligo, according to modern theory it is a genetic disease and cab trigger due to a stressful condition but in Ayurveda we have got many new replies to the question as to what can trigger Vitiligo. According to Ayurveda, certain food items like milk if taken along with any pickle, lemon or radish can trigger Vitiligo. The other point I will be making is what are the treatment options? This is very important, as one you get a disease, you should know how to cure it. In Allopathy we have got external applications for the pigments. In Homeopathy, healing is a slow process since the patches might increase or decrease. In Ayurveda we have got a very good reply to this disease, the medicines given to the patient in this treatment acts directly on the toxins in the blood that are responsible for the white patches, which further neutralizes the toxins and the external application helps to generate the pigment, hence within 3 months we get very good results to this disease, especially for those with black hair.
The combination of Allopathy and Ayurveda also gives very good results. Another point is, that what are the expected results, if the hair follicles are black then within three months, 25%-30% recovery is possible and if the patient is having white hair, the recovery period is a little bit slow. Finger tips and lips are difficult areas to be treated, in case of a marriageable case, we can have a surgical procedure along with some other options. Vitiligo is not only a skin disease, it affects other organs also like Thyroid amongst others. So, in most of the case, almost 30% patients, we are observing that most patients are having a thyroid involvement in this disease. So we guide our patients to have a liver function test along with thyroid profile. Genetic is huge issue in patients, so most patients ask if this disease will be carried forward to their children. The answer to this is , that in our medical practice we have observed that 2-3% of the patients that have Vitiligo who have a genetic history are also having genetic problems.
So if you want then you can contact me via Lybrate, you can discuss things, you can send photographs to me via Whatsapp or you can visit the clinic. Thank you
Hi may hair is very thin. Its not at all growing. Hair fall is uncountable so wat to do for this problem.
Hello my father hairs have whitened. He has tried every hair dye whether homeopathic or normal dye. He has also been eating amla for 2 years still no results please suggest me something.
Ever felt that your skin has lost its radiant glow? or that it's feeling a little too dry (or oily)? do you feel like in the midst of friends, work and relationships, there's absolutely no time to head to the spa for a facial? well not to worry, you can now give yourself a fabulous facial at home. So read on, and give these facial tips at home a try.
To prep yourself for a facial, you need to start by washing your hands. Remember, you'll be using your hands to massage and treat your face. So they must be clean. Wash them with warm water and a simple bar soap. Your hands carry germs that can lead to breakouts on your skin.
Tie up your hair:
Tie you hair back (use a hairband to hold back stray strands or bangs). You need your face to be clear of any obstructions for a through facial.
Remove your makeup:
Now we move onto cleansing your face thoroughly. You can either use natural ingredients like milk or you can go for a gentle makeup cleanser (choose the cleanser that suits your skin type best.) use cotton balls to gently wipe off the makeup from your eyes, cheeks, lips, face and neck. Move the cotton ball in gentle circular motions. Around the eyes, be careful and use gentle strokes (don't tug at the skin!)
This is an important step. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin, reduces large pores and prevents fine lines and wrinkles. Spread the exfoliator on your palms and massage your skin in circular motions. You don't need to press the exfoliating beads into your skin, just a gentle amount of pressure is fine. Avoid scrubbing the exfoliator around your eyes. If you don't have an exfoliator, take a cup of milk and add a teaspoon of granulated sugar, this works just as well!
Take a clean washcloth and run under hot water. Place it over your face and let it rest for five minutes. Alternatively, you can fill a pot of water till it is boiling. Then stand with your face above the steaming water. Drape a cloth over your head to prevent the steam from escaping. You can add drops of rosemary oil to add to the cleansing process. Steam your face for 10-15 minutes, not more. If you have sensitive skin, try and avoid this step as it can exacerbate the problem.
The fourth step of this process is to apply the facial mask. It is vital to choose a facial mask that suits your skin type. For oily skin, you can try a mud or clay mask to absorb the extra oil from your skin. For dry skin, go for a hydrating or creamy face mask. Combination skin needs both these elements. Cover your face in a light mask, avoiding the areas around the eye. You can soothe your eyes with cucumber slices. After 15 minutes, wash off the mask with plenty of water and pat it try.
To maintain the texture of your glossy skin, use a moisturiser after wiping off the face mask. For oily skin, you can choose a water-based or light moisturiser, while for dry skin you can use a denser cream. For sensitive skin, avoid a product with heavy fragrances or acidic ingredients. These can cause breakouts or rashes.
