I am suffering from severe headache and viral flu and feel depressed give me some suggestion from get rid of this.
For viral fevers you need to give anti viral drugs with in first 2 days. But most of the viral fevers heal spontaneously and no antibiotics will work in viral fevers. Take paracetamol 500 2-3 times a day for fever and headache. And take plenty of hot liquids. Reduce spices in food.

I got itching on my foot fingers getting pimples from past two days could you suggest any medicine.
This can be happen because of many reasons like humidity or any kind of fungal infection. First of all you have to clean the skin/wash foot with clean water regularly. And you can apply CANDID B OINTMENT at the affected region.

Good morning Doctor, I'm 28 years old & have a baby girl of 7 months. My current FBS is 211.60 & PPBS is 237 (Tested on 30th August) & my gynaecologist has prescribed Metformin 500 mg. However, she has asked me to confirm with a physician. My personal skepticism is, if it would have any adverse effects on milk production or on any other count. In addition to Metformin, I'm on Thyronorm 50 mcg as well. Kindly advise and oblige. Regards.

I have a problem with hair loose please give me support.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I have a problem with  hair loose please give me support.
Hi. Let me tell you about hairfall. In layman's language, hairfall can be divided into 2 types - temporary hairfall and permanent which is called 'Hairloss' rather and leads to bald areas of smooth and shiny surface. In temporary hairfall, hair grows back again from the same hair root, but in case of permanent hairloss, because of formation of DHT (Di- Hydro -Testosterone) around hair root it gets choked up which subsequently affects the blood supply to the hair and thus hair root is lost forever. (There are different pattern of hairloss, because of different reasons like Alopecia Areata, Telogen Effluvium, Scarring Alopecia, Traction Alopecia, etc.) Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or male/ female pattern baldness - hereditary, post-illness/ ailment, post-delivery, post- chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, hormaonal imbalance, insufficient sleep, sudden loss of weight, stress/ tensions/ excessive anger any other underlying diseases, etc. Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs, pulses, legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnut and almonds), iron-rich food like green vegetables, also take flaxseeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200/ twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. Use Rose wood hair comb to brush your hair. (N.B.: With the help of homoeopathic medicines, we can only prevent further progress of the hairloss, means it will get arrests in the present condition in case of progressive baldness. But, in case there are areas of baldness which has gone smooth and shiny, you will have to choose an option of Hair Transplant along with theses medications!).

Having lots of acne marks. How to get rid of it also my face became dark these days.

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Noida
Having lots of acne marks. How to get rid of it also my face became dark these days.
If your acne have cleared and cured and dark acne marks are there, they can be removed by the application of Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream 2-3 times daily for 1-3 months, This cream will remove darkness only restoring original skin colour without any effect on scarring if acne marks are scarred. Scarring go by itself over years to some extent or you may consult some cosmetic plastic surgeon for scar treatment. Scar Treatment When the skin is in the process of recovering from an injury, whether the result of an accident, surgery, a burn, or acne, scarring will occur wherever multiple layers of the skin have been affected. Once a scar forms, it is permanent but may be made less visible or relocated surgically. Is Facial Scar Treatment for You? The goal of facial scar treatment is to disguise the scar, relocate it, or minimize its prominence. Important factors to be discussed with your surgeon include: Skin type and color Ethnic background Individual healing rates Age Different types of scars respond to different plastic surgery techniques. A person considering facial scar revision must understand that there is no way to remove scars completely. Timing of surgery is another important choice. Some surgeons advise against any scar revision in cases of injury for a period that might extend up to a year after the injury. This interval allows the body enough time to heal fully. Making the Decision for Scar Treatment What you should expect: Your surgeon will examine the scar in order to decide upon the proper treatment and inform you of outcomes that can be expected from facial scar revision surgery. The agreement between you and your surgeon on how to proceed is a prerequisite for successful surgery. After you both decide to proceed with scar revision, your surgeon will inform you about: a. Anesthesia b. Surgical facility c. Supportive surgery options d. Costs Because scars are highly individualistic and the patient's attitude toward scars is so personal, maximum improvement in facial scars may require more than one procedure. More than one technique may be employed. Understanding Scar Revision Surgery Following is a general description of the surgery. Remember, each patient’s individual needs and features are considered before surgery. When a scar is of the contracture type, surgery generally involves removing the scar tissue entirely. Skin flaps, composed of adjacent healthy, unscarred skin, are then lifted and moved to form a new incision line. Where a flap is not possible, a skin graft may be used. A graft involves taking a section of skin tissue from one area and attaching it to another. Time must be allowed following surgery for new blood vessels and soft tissue to form. Z-plasty is a method to move a scar from one area to another, usually into a natural fold or crease in the skin to minimize its visibility. While Z-plasty does not remove all signs of a scar, it does make it less noticeable. Dermabrasion and laser resurfacing are methods a surgeon uses to make "rough or elevated" scars less prominent by removing part of the upper layers of skin with an abrading tool or laser light. Clearly, the scar will remain, but it will be smoother and less visible. Keloid or hypertrophic scars are often treated first with injections of steroids to reduce size. If this is not satisfactory, the scars can be removed surgically, and the incisions closed with fine stitches, often resulting in less prominent scars. Treatment of Pimples:- Acne/pimples are easily treatable within 7 days to 1 month. Even dark spots would go away themselves within 3-6 months or you may use Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream for 1 month to get rid of black spots once pimples have got cured. Salicylic acid should never be applied on pimples as it being acid would cause damage to nearby skin and may cause scarring and black spots. Acne or Pimples result due to hypersensitive skin, arrested growth of sebaceous glands, high androgen production, high sebum production, frequent blocking of sebaceous glands with subsequent bacterial infection of sebaceous glands. You are producing more androgens but that is good for your sexuality. Excess androgens may cause both hyper-sexuality or night-falls and pimples but we can't give you ant-androgens because they may cause feminization of your body and mentality. Androgens cause more sebum production in sebaceous glands of your skin of face and cause pimples. More sebum production causes oiliness and dust particles stick easily to oily skin closing pores of sebaceous glands and sebum is stuck inside causing enlargement of gland as pimple. If it gets infected, it may develop pus making white heads. Some times skin is very sensitive and applying chemicals or drugs in the form of cosmetics and may result into pimples. In some people, skin growth is slow or arrested along with being oversensitized or associated with high production of androgens. This result into development of reddish pink pimples which grow very slowly but new ones keep on erupting and the whole face is filled with hundreds of reddish pink pimples. In some cases, pimples spread beyond face to neck, shoulder, back and even chest. If you pinch pimples, nearby skin gets damaged and heals by growth of new skin that contains more melanin due to overgrowth of melanocytes resulting into blackish pigmentation with or without scar. For pimples you do following things: Wash your face with mild soap like Lux, Rexona etc 3-4 times in day time, at the time of sleeping, at least once in night if got awaken and just after getting up from sleep. You should keep your face free from oiliness due to sebum on your face. Take AD capsules (containing fat-soluble Vitamin-A) 20 capsule every week. Vitamin A will diminish sebum production and enhance growth of skin and pimples and pimples will be shed off rapidly. (you get a bottle of 1000 AD capsules for around Rs100/-) You can also apply local cream or gel of Adaptalene (marketed by the name of acnelene) on your face. If you apply they refrain from sunlight. Adaptalene is also a retinoid like Vitamin -A. With Vit-A or adaptalene, pimples come outwards rapidly giving impression that problem of pimples is being enhanced. But keep patience. Pimples will shed off within a week. Tretinoin is also used for pimples but don't use it as it causes hyper-pigmentation. If the pimples get infected with pus, take Azithromycin 500 mg on empty stomach once daily for 5-days under medical supervision. Never pinch pimples but let them shed off or fall themselves otherwise blackening will occur and scar may also be formed. Do not apply cosmetics, cleansing lotions, sun-screens, chemical lotions or solutions or medicated soaps to already over-sensitized skin of yours. Use mild soaps like lux, rexona etc or cetrim soap congaing cetrimide. Or you may use besan paste or multani mitti to remove oiliness from face. Take less fats that provides triglycerides in blood which get converted into sebum in sebaceous glands. Take plenty of water to keep you hydrated. Consume green vegetables, salad and fresh seasonal fruits. Consume Green tea regularly. Divert your mind from sexual activities and pornographic literature or wash your face frequently during these activities as these activities increase androgen secretion in body which increase oiliness of face. Take proper and regular sleep in a disciplined life. Remain happy. Get rid of anxiety & tensions. Control your ambitions, envies and jealousies. Do regular morning evening walks and/or exercises. Black spots or pigmentation of acne/pimplea may subside itself within 3-6 months after pimples have cured. You may apply Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream for 1 month to get rid of them.

Pimple never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin e on scars. You may have heard that applying vitamin e to a scar will help it heal faster. But according to a study, applying the nutrient directly onto a scar can actually hinder its healing, like daily apply night microbenz cream daytime use ahaglo facewash.

Hi.I am on antidepressant nexito 10 from almost 6 years now. I feel side effects like fatigue and my weight has also increased. I want to get rid of this medicine but as soon as I lower the doze like I take 5 mg .I feel terrible withdrawal effects. .Plz help me like how can I get rid of this medicine without feeling any withdrawal symptoms.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

First of all do not attempt to self-regulate the medication. Only a psychiatrist, who is not only qualified but also knows the various drug effects on different people to correctly taper the dosage. My concern is that you have not been into counseling along with the medication. Without that kind of support, it is near impossible to come off of the medication. Therapy will help with the knowledge, skills and the development of some coping mechanisms to enable recovery. For weight loss, there are some very good supplementary products that will help, but you need to exercise too. Depression is the only condition that you need to fight against all the tendencies that are peculiar to this disorder. Never give in to the fatigue, wake up early and exercise, especially the aerobic type, stay upright all through the day, meet people, do active things, socialize, and follow a healthy diet full of fiber.

Although dandruff can sometimes be caused by a fungal infection or other skin disease, in most cases it is produced when the scalp doesn’t receive a sufficient supply of blood. Consequently there is a lack of protein in the skin, which becomes dry and flaky. Dandruff may also be due to a deficiency of vitamin B-6, or to an excess of vata dosha, which also makes the skin dry. You can try the following home remedies to get rid of dandruff and prevent hair fall: NEEM OIL: To improve circulation to the scalp, massage for a few minutes daily with neem oil (in a sesame oil base). If a fungal infection of the skin is causing the dandruff, the neem oil, which has disinfectant properties, will help heal this also. EGGWHITES: Another option is to use some eggwhite mixed with lime juice. Put two eggwhites in a small jar or container with the fresh juice of one lime, mix together, and apply to your hair. Let it stay in your hair for a half hour, then wash the hair with neem soap. The egg-white will provide the scalp with the lacking protein, and the dandruff will soon disappear. FENUGREEK: Soak 2 tablespoons of fenugreek (Methi) seeds in water overnight. Grind it to make a paste and apply it on the scalp. After 20 minutes wash it off with shikakai or any other herbal shampoo. This is one of the oldest and most effective remedy in treating dandruff. ALOE VERA: To reduce pitta and preserve the health of your hair, drink Aloe Vera juice (⅓ cup preferably with a pinch of cumin) 3 times a day for about 3 months. You can also scrape out the gel from an aloe plant with a spoon, and apply to your hair and scalp (and face too). ONION PASTE: Onion paste helps you cleanse your scalp and increases hair growth. You just need to add onions in the mixer and prepare a paste. Apply the paste on your scalp. Leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with water. GUAVA LEAVES: Add guava leaves to hot water and boil it for a few minutes till the time the water turns black. Using cotton, apply the solution on your scalp. Repeat this process two to three times in a week. AMLA JUICE: Amla does wonders to the hair and is one of the best cures for baldness. Take equal portions of fresh Amla juice and Lemon juice and apply the mixture on your scalp. Leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse off. Hope this helps.

Hello If you want to reduce your weight, following things will aid you in your goal: 1.Cut down the excess carbs. If you want to lose weight you should start by avoiding sugar and starch (like bread). A low carb diet reduces your hunger and makes it easier to eat less. And it might even increase your fat burning at rest. 2.Don’t skip meals. Skipping meals will not make you lose weight faster. That strategy backfires because your body thinks food is in short supply, so it slows your metabolism in order to conserve energy. Over time, the result is that when you do eat — even if you consume the same foods as always — your body will be slower to use the calories as fuel, thus creating a backlog of unwanted pounds. 3.Stay hydrated. You've heard it before, and you'll hear it again. That's because drinking 64 ounces of water daily is one of the easiest ways to speed up weight loss. Your body needs water in order to efficiently metabolize stored fat. When you shortchange your supply, you're likely to slow down that process, meaning it's more difficult for you to burn calories. An easy eight glasses a day (at least!) will keep your system running smoothly. 4.Start exercising. Strength training builds lean muscle tissue, which burns more calories — at work or at rest — 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The more lean muscle you have, the faster you'll slim down. How do you start strength training? Try some push-ups or a few squats or lunges. Use your free weights to perform simple biceps curls or triceps pulls right in your home or office. Do these exercises three to four times per week, and you'll soon see a rapid improvement in your physique. 5.Go for an evening walk. An evening activity may be particularly beneficial because many people's metabolism slows down toward the end of the day. Thirty minutes of aerobic activity before dinner increases your metabolic rate and may keep it elevated for another two or three hours, even after you've stopped moving. What that means for you: Those dinner calories have less of a chance to take up permanent residence on your hips. 6.Take adequate rest. You should also make an effort to get enough good sleep, preferably every night. Strive to wake up refreshed of your own accord, independently of the alarm clock. If you’re the kind of person who always gets brutally woken up by the alarm ringing, you might never be giving your body adequate rest. 7.Supplement vitamins and minerals. Nutrient-dense, good food is certainly the foundation of weight loss. But an adequate amount of vitamin D can be difficult to ingest via food. In the case of a lack of sun (such as during the darker months of autumn and winter), it’s wise to supplement for multiple health reasons – and perhaps even for your weight.
