  5. Important to require a transfusion
  6. Obvious scarring or skin breakdown, which happens when recovering skin detaches from sound skin and ought to be removed surgically
  7. Numbness and shuddering from nerve hurt, which may be ceaseless

  3. Everyone is astray.
  4. Each understanding has a substitute result.
  5. Patients will have no under, two visits with the pro and furthermore another person from the therapeutic administrations amass before surgery.
  6. It is essential that a patient be in incredible physical and passionate prosperity.
  7. Abstaining from all nicotine things and keeping up a key separation from utilized smoke for no not as much as a month and a half earlier and afterward a short time later surgery is critical.
  8. Surgical scars are enduring.
  9. Bruising and swelling are brief.

Take coconut oil, olive oil or canola oil and heat it up so that it is warm, but not too hot. Massage your scalp with this hot oil for a few minutes. Put on a shower cap for an hour then shampoo your hair. It helps to stop hair loss and promote hair growth.

My skin is so oily, and have black spots on my face what should we do to get out of this problem?
Hereditary Medications ? Allergies: Allergies cause itching, and this further leads to darkening of the area around the eye. ? Eczema: In case of eczema, the skin becomes darker due to the rub and itch. Anemia: ? Fatigue: Fatigue leads to engorged veins and under eye circles appear. ? Nutritional deficiencies: Unhealthy diet and incomplete nutrition are significantly related to dark eye circles. Diet lacking in essential vitamins A and E that are essential for healthy skin may lead to these dark eye circles. Tomato Tomatoes have bleaching properties that can lighten skin to a great extent. ? Mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with one-half teaspoon of lemon juice. Gently apply this mixture on the dark circles and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Rinse it off with water. Follow this remedy twice a day for a few weeks. Simply using tomato juice will also work. ? You can also drink a glass of tomato juice with some mint leaves, lemon juice and salt. For maximum results, be sure to drink this juice immediately after making it. Drink it once or twice a day for about a week.

Stretch marks can happen at any age. Basically it happens due to sudden stretch or sagging of skin tissues. To reduce it appearance try - 1. Scrub the area daily with natural things like besan. 2. Apply vitamin e oil after that 3. You can mix three foul oils like coconut, olive, sesame to massge during night. 4. Eat food rich in vitamin e. This vitamin is responsible for the elasticity of your skin. 5. The stretch marks do not go away completely. But they fade with time.

Acne is common in people of age group 15 to 20 years but as mentioned your age is 35, there must be some cause for it such as Hormonal imbalance (excess of androgen in body because of PCOD, High level of stress, dandruff,use of heavy cosmetics etc. The medicines which you are using is having side effects such as gastritis and drug eruptions and recurrence is also common once you stop using it because root cause is not treated.

Hello lybrate-user It seems to be Tan. Tan refers to the skin darkening due to exposure to the UV radiation of the sun In many regions, tanning is often done intentionally by sun bathing or other artificial methods Symptoms. • Darkening of the affected skin • Presence of blisters in severe cases Causes: • Sun exposure facilitates production of vitamin D • Excessive sun exposure can cause: Sunburn Weak immune system • Exposure to the sun damages melanin leading to brief skin darkening Remedies Gram Flour Gram flour is very useful in treating a sun tan as it helps remove dead skin cells and leaves your skin bright and young. You can use the gram flour powder available in MARKET or make a paste of whole green gram. Mix the gram flour in water and rub it all over the affected skin area. Wait 20 minutes before washing if off with water. Do this twice a week for a few months. For best results, use rose water instead of plain water. You can also mix some lime juice and yogurt into the paste. 6. Cucumber Cucumber juice also helps reduce a sun tan. Cucumbers have a cooling effect that soothes the skin and helps eliminate a suntan. The vitamin C in cucumbers also will help keep the skin well moisturised. Mix two tablespoons of fresh cucumber juice and one tablespoon of lime juice. Add a pinch of turmeric to it. Mix it well and apply it on the affected skin. Leave it for 30 minutes and then wash it off with water. Can also rub freshly cut slices of cucumber on your skin. 7. Milk Milk or milk cream can also be used for treating sun tanned skin. Put a small amount of milk in a bowl and add a pinch of turmeric and some lemon juice. Apply this solution on the affected areas and allow it to dry completely. Then wash it off with water. This will give you an instant relief from a sun tan. You can also soak a pinch of saffron in fresh milk cream overnight. In the morning, stir it well and apply it on the affected skin areas. This will lighten your complexion and make your skin glow. 8. Sandalwood Sandalwood is a common ingredient in many beauty products. It can also be used for removing a sun tan due to its skin lightening and anti-ageing properties. So, it cleanses your skin and helps you maintain a glowing complexion. Mix equal amounts of sandalwood powder and pure turmeric powder. Add some rose water to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the affected areas and leave it on for 30 minutes or until it dries. Wash it offusing cold water. Do this twice a week. Can also mix sandalwood powder with coconut OIL and almond oil to make a paste to apply on the affected areas. 9. Almond A paste made from almonds will cleanse, scrub and lighten your skin tone. Soak five to six almonds in water overnight. In the morning, blend the almonds with some milk to make a paste. Before bed, apply this paste on the affected areas and leave it on overnight. In the morning, wash it off with cold water. Do this daily for the first 15 days and then repeat it twice a week. 10. Oatmeal Powder Oatmeal has skin-soothing properties and also works as a wonderful exfoliant to cleanse the pores. Thus, oatmeal powder can be used in a couple of ways to reduce a sun tan. Prepare a mixture of oatmeal powder and buttermilk. Rub it onto the tanned areas. The oats will help ex foliate the skin, and the buttermilk will soothe the skin. Can also make a paste with oatmeal powder, ground almonds, ground dried orange peel and milk. Apply the paste on the affected areas and leave it on for 30 minutes. Then wash it off with cold water. Can use these remedies to help reduce sun tanned skin. Be sure also to protect your skin from sun exposure. Tips To Prevent Sun Tan: 1. Cover your hands properly before stepping out in the sun to avoid direct impact. 2. If you can’t cover them, then apply a good sunscreen to keep the skin protected. Apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 liberally and half an hour before sun exposure. If you skip sunscreen because you sweat a lot, look for a ‘non-comedogenic’ one as this will not clog your pores. 3. Drink lots of water. This helps you to keep your skin hydrated from inside out, thus reducing the risk of the skin drying. It increases the cell turnover and lets your skin rejuvenate and renew itself. 4. Moisturise your hands, that is, hydrate your skin externally too by applying a moisturiser that contains natural fruit acids on a regular basis. This will aid tan removal from the skin.

I have gradually losing my hair. Please suggest the way to prevent it from falling ?

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
Hello Dear,According to Ayurveda, hair is a byproduct of bone formation. The factors responsible for building bones are also responsible for the hair re-growth. Ayurveda doctors believe that early hair loss is related to body type and the balance of the mind-body constitution (doshas). Excess pitta in the sebaceous gland, at the root of the hair, or folliculitis can make the person start losing hair. We loose hair after a certain growth and new hair replaces the older one, which means recycling of hair. Hair loss means losing more hair than you naturally lose. As our hair grows under a natural process, so we can take care of growth only by natural resources and methods. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com
