Dark underarms are generally caused by sweating, improper cleaning, dead skin cells, and friction caused as a result of different qualities of clothes. In some people dark underarms could be due to the alcohol content in the deodorants or the shaving products that they use. Another common cause of dark underarms is plucking and shaving. Every time you pluck or shave it causes micro-abrasions. These wounds on healing cause darkening of the skin. Tips to help you whiten your underarms in a natural manner: - scrubbing your armpits with an exfoliating scrub of your choice for about five minutes daily is the first step to whiten your dark underarms. - aloe vera gel when rubbed over the underarms in a similar manner also has the same effect as cleansing them. - raw grated potato juice helps bleach your skin and whiten your underarms naturally. - cucumber juice also has the same effect. - regularly rub a slice of lemon over your underarms and see the difference. - also, once you are done with your shower, you could take some baking powder and rub it onto your underarms. - another tip of for whitening dark underarms naturally is using a paste made using one tablespoon curd, one teaspoon milk (natural), and one teaspoon gram flour. Add a little turmeric powder to this paste and liberally apply on your armpits. Wash it completely once it dries off. - mixture made from sandalwood powder and rose water can work wonders and help whiten your underarms. - another mixture that can help is lime juice and coconut oil in equal proportions sprinkled with a dash of turmeric powder. Apply this to your underarms and rinse in about 20 minutes or so. If you are wondering how to whiten your underarms overnight try waxing. Waxing helps you get rid of your underarm hair and also help in the removal of dead skin cells, leaving your underarms looking clean. Medication: apply homeoopathic ointment - medisynth's witch hazel.

Alien Hand Syndrome: Causes and Effects

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Alien Hand Syndrome: Causes and Effects

Alien Hand Syndrome or AHS is a neurological disorder that causes the patient's hand to move involuntarily. The individual has no control over the movement of the hand and sometimes, he or she may not even be aware of the action! The patients often report feeling like their hand does not belong to them anymore. The disease has no cure but the symptoms can be treated and reduced. Usually the hand is kept occupied constantly by holding a light object. 

Causes of Alien Hand Syndrome: 
Though the exact causing factor of AHS is unknown, there are a number of instances which have been shown to influence the development of the condition. The chief factors are: 

  1. Brain injury: Injury caused to the brain by blunt force trauma or faulty surgery can lead to Alien Hand Syndrome. This is particularly seen if the frontal lobe (the brain center of voluntary movement) or the corpus callosum (the bundle of nerve fibers connecting the left and right hemispheres of the brain) is affected. These are the areas that regulate motor functioning and the neural pathways to execute the actions. 
  2. Brain tumor: A tumor (a mass of abnormal cells) pressing on the motor centers of the brain can cause involuntary movements of the left hand in a right handed person. This is because the right hemisphere of the brain controls the left side of the body and vice versa. Tumors blocking the neural pathways usually cause errant movements of the predominant hand. 
  3. Neurodegenerative conditions: Diseases like Alzheimer's disease and Creutzfeld & Jakob Disease are characterized by memory loss, rapid changes in personality and growing defects in the central nervous system. AHS could be a complication of such disorders. Effects of Alien Hand Syndrome This is an extremely rare condition. There have been less than 80 known cases around the world since 1908. 

The disorder is often unreported because it is mistaken for a psychiatric problem due to its unusual symptoms and effects. 

  1. The patient may not even be aware of what his 'alien hand' is doing. The hand may even begin functioning of its own accord when the patient is asleep. 
  2. AHS can result in feelings of guilt and shame because of the embarrassing actions of the hand that the patient has absolutely no control over. The hand is often said to be governed by primal animalistic urges of hitting others, tearing clothes off etc. 
  3. The condition often leads to social anxiety, depression and paranoia.

Hi. Let me 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. Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or hairloss- 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 smooking 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 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 me back. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). (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). Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.

Hcg level 61 is abnormal. So, repeat hcg every 48 hours until it rises to more than 1500 (when you should do tvs) or until it falls below 15 (when it means spontaneous resolution of pregnancy).

Fruits for Hair Growth

MBBS, DDV
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Fruits for Hair Growth

For a great head of hair, use expensive hair products. But food can also help the growth of healthy, strong and rich hair. Particularly, some fruits loaded with essential vitamins and minerals can give exceptional results. So, what are these fruits for better hair growth?

Fruits for Hair Growth:

1.     Citrus Fruits

You need vitamin C to grow healthy hair and the citrus family of fruits contains large amounts of this antioxidant vitamin. Vitamin C is also important in the production of skin collagen.

Eating lemons, oranges, grapefruits and lime regularly will provide you with enough vitamin C for healthier hair and overall health. You can also benefit by rubbing your scalp with lemon juice to get rid of dandruff.

2.     Berries

Berries contain large stores of vitamin C and other hair-supporting nutrients. Vitamin C protects blood vessels, including those supplying blood to the scalp and to the hair follicles. They also contain B vitamins that aid in the oxygen supply, slow graying and reduce hair loss. Try eating gooseberries, strawberries, raspberries, loganberries and boysenberries as often as possible for healthy hair.

3.     Avocado

Avocado is one of the leading fruits for hair growth. It is a rich source of vitamins B, C, E and beta-carotenes. It helps in the growth of healthy hair, supply of oxygen and strength of the blood vessel walls. The result is healthy scalp and shiny, rich hair.

Besides taking avocado internally, you can use it directly on your hair. Use a ripe fruit to make mashed avocado and apply it to your moist hair after shampooing. Wait 15 minutes before rinsing and drying your hair. 

4.     Pomegranate

Pomegranates strengthen your hair follicles and prevent hair loss. Pomegranate seed oil stimulates growth of thick, stronger hair and is used extensively as a hair massage oil. It combats dandruff and scalp itching.

5.     Banana

Banana supports hair growth and protects against hair loss. It contains lots of potassium and natural oils, which helps soften hair, give it a shine and maintain its elasticity. You can prepare your own banana paste and use it as a conditioner.

6.     Apple

Apple is well known to improve overall health. It also supports growth of healthy hair. Green apple skin and apple leaves made into a paste are used to improve hair growth and treat dandruff. Apples also balance scalp pH and prevent hair loss.

7.     Papaya

Papaya fruit contains hair growth enhancing nutrients that help protect against hair loss, treat dandruff and strengthen hair growth. Extracts from papaya leaves help to nourish dull hair, making it healthier, stronger, thicker and shinier.

8.     Pineapple

Pineapples are a rich source of beta-carotene from which vitamin A is made. Vitamin A aids in production of scalp conditioning oils which support growth of healthy hair.

9.     Peach

Peach is one of the best fruits for hair growth and regrowth. It contains biotin, a natural hair growth steroid that supports the health of your hair and scalp. The peach provides these benefits with no side effects.

10.   Plum

Plums contain bioflavonoid which helps in the maintenance of connective tissues in the scalp and hair follicles. Eating plums promotes growth of healthy, strong and thick hair without the side effects of some hair care products.

11.   Grape

Grape seed oil is a staple in many hair care preparations for the prevention of hair loss and promotion of scalp health. But grape fruits also have antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that support growth of healthy hair. Besides, grapes have a high water content that helps to detoxify the body. 

12.   Guava

Guava fruit is a rich source of vitamin A which supports hair growth. The fruit also promotes scalp health, clears dandruff and protects against hair loss. This makes it one of the important fruits for hair growth.

To make your own hair and scalp conditioner, mash guava fruits, mix with lemon juice and honey, and apply it to your scalp. Repeat every few days and you will be pleased to see the results in a few weeks.

Hello dear Lybrate user. It seems U are handling the Acne vulgaris lesions following which post inflammatory hyperpigmentation had occurred. 1st of all avoid handling of acne lesions. Use a depigmenting agent containing Kojic acid and a good sunscreen containing aqueous gel base formulation and a facewash containing Glycolic and Salisalic acid. Later on if on medication it is not improving much one can go for Trichloacetic acid, Glycolic, Lactic acid peel. Consult me online via chat, audio for full prescription.

Hi, First check your thyroid level, HB level and PCOd and if everything is normal use Bringamala Thailam for external application and use Sesa shampoo for hair wash. Add fruits and veggies in your diet. Avoid spicy and oily food, Ayurveda treatments such as Shirodhara, thalapotochil, shirolepam will help you.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.
