Dark circles treatment?
Please suggest me treatment fir the same. I have this problem since 2 month.
Dark circles are because of lack of nutrients. Sleep and weakness. So take proper nutrients and drink plenty of juices and sleep for atleast 7 hours a day. Drink 7-8 glasses of water every day.

How to remove pimples and how I remove dark spots from my face with no side effects.

BHMS
Homeopath,
How to remove pimples and how I remove dark spots from my face with no side effects.
Dear lybrate user, pimples/ acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which develops due to blocking of the hair follicles in skin. These blockages occur due to 4 abnormal processes: 1) excess sebum production due to androgens 2) excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedone formation 3) infection of propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes) bacteria on the hair follicles 4) local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. Neither can you stop the overproduction of androgen or keratin protein nor can you stop the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals because all these processes takes place internally in your skin. However you can stop the accumulation of p. Acnes bacteria on your skin by preventing your skin from getting oily. Always keep a handkerchief with you wherever you go outside. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink a lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation. You can also take homoeopathic calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach also you can apply homoeopathic mother tincture berberis aquifolium q on the dark spots on your skin which are produced after the resolution of the pimples.

Stress is the biggest problem here. If not that it can also be hereditary. You should get a checkup for vitamin d3 and b12. Start taking nutrahair tablet twice everyday to stop your hair from graying. If it is a genetic problem, your hair follicle might have stopped producing melanin. Then you can only repy on man-made hair dyes or natural hair dyes like henna.

Hello, As such normal masturbating doesn't harm you. But if you are obsessed with masturbation, that is not good for you, it somehow makes you feel ashamed, guilt , uncontrollable obscene thoughts which indirectly increases the stress hormones in the body. And these raised stress hormones starts affecting any part of your body - from hair / head to foot! So, don't let it be an obsession! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Staphysagria 200/ one dose daily once for 20 days and Alfaalfa Tonic/ thrice daily for 1 month. (Do some stress-relieving exercises like breathing -Pranayam, Anulom-Vilum, etc.)

Hi make a paste of neem leaves and apply on the targeted pimples. If you cannot get fresh neem leaves, try to get some dried bottled neem leaves, steep for 10 minutes in warm water and use as a paste. Apply pranacharya face glow on your face for 15 minutes then wash it with warm water.

Acne - 10 Home Remedies to Get Rid of it

Acne - 10 Home Remedies to Get Rid of it

All of us have dealt with Acne at some point of time and especially at time when we needed it the least. Remember, the day before the presentation or your best friend's wedding. In order to get rid of acne, one needs to have clear skin as fast as possible. There are both natural methods as well as medicated methods using medicine and chemicals to treat it. 

Once one has acne, one must keep their hair and hands away from acne, as the touching of acne will take the germs to the other exposed parts. Since acne is caused by oil and bacteria one must use an oil-free face wash which contains salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is anti-bacterial and helps removing away dead skin cells that can clog your pores.

  1. One should use hand held facial brush to decrease the skin leaving behind less oil and bacteria and thus, cleaning the clogged skin pores. Usage of oil-free foundation containing salicylic acid prevents base makeup from contributing to new pimples. 
  2. When new pimples pop up, one must treat it with anti-inflammatory ingredient that blasts blemishes. If one has a bright red blemish, then one must use a hydrocortisone cream which helps relieve redness and inflammation.
  3. One can also reduce the swelling by holding an ice pack against the trouble spot and then use the hydrocortisone cream.
  4. One must not pick one's face in case of acne, as it will only result in a scar. If one already have a blemish wound, one must apply a hydroquinone-based cream to the area to help lighten the spot. 
  5. Lemon juice is a natural astringent, which when applied directly on the acne, kills off the bacteria clogging the pores. It also has natural lightening powers that reduces the redness of acne.
  6. Tea tree oil reduces skin irritation and acne. One can coat the acne with some tea tree oil after washing the face twice daily for the best results.
  7. One must avoid milk, chocolates, sweets, desserts, cakes, fat and oil to prevent acne.
  8. The egg white help to get rid of acne fast and overnight. One should apply the egg white and apply to the acne before bedtime and leave it overnight. On washing the face with water next morning, one can see that acne has dried up. 
  9. One can remove acne by putting little honey and leaving it overnight. Honey kills skin bacteria and makes the skin glow.
  10. Baking Soda is the most powerful method to get rid of acne. One should make a paste of a teaspoon of baking soda with water and put it on the acne. On washing the face after three hours, one can see that acne has dried up.

So, the next time when the acne pops up just before the occasion, just use any of these methods and get rid of acne in a jiffy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.

Hello, there can be many reasons behind it like mental worries, nutritional deficiency, hereditary and anaemia. Make a habit of 8-10 glasses of water daily. Eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. Eggs as it is loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amount. Add more vitamin rich food to your diet. Avoid stress and anger. Cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. Take homoeopathic medicines 1.Acid phos 30 (4 drops in little water) every morning for 7 days 2.Weisbaden 200 (4 drops in little water) thrice a day gap for 7 days and revert. Apply jobarandi hair oil.

To soften rough hair, use fenugreek seeds. Powder the seeds and add water to make a thick paste. For visible results, apply regularly on the scalp for a month at least. You can also apply warm oil with lime and egg on the scalp. Wrap head in a warm towel. Leave until it cools and wash thoroughly. Repeat twice a week to soften hair.

I have psoriasis last 8 years, I need to cure please help me. Starting it's red color then it's turn into white patches.
Psoriasis is genetic disorder triggered due to stressful conditions and irregular life style. We are treating psoriasis using ayurvedic medicines. Psoriasis has three stages. First stage is when disease remain on skin and there are scaly patches. Second stage comes when there is pitting on nails and in last stage it enter the joints and there is pain in small joints. Generally patient use steroidal application on patches which give temporary relief and disease reappear after 2/3 days. In severe cases methotrexate is used which is not a safer option and is liver toxic. Ayurveda has got a complete remedy for psoriasis. It is a safer option and can be used for longer duration without any side effects. Ayurvedic external application give very quick results with sun exposure in clearing the scales and internal treatment does not allow the disease to re appear. Psoriasis is a manageable disease and can be managed with ease and effectively using ayurveda. You should use 3 gms of haldi with milk helps in psoriasis patients. For more info you can contact clinic.

It is a common problem in your age due to hormonal changes. Use foaming face wash with salysilic acid (1%) saslic face wash will control the oil. Also take isotretonoin tablet, every alternate day. It will be better to show the problem before taking this medicine to know the proper dosage, as it can have side-effects. Do not use any cream, if your skin feels stretched or tight, you may use aloe vera gel. Use an anti acne cream on the acne (do not spread) before bedtime. If acne has been troubling you for long and you also have acne scars, laser treatment will help you.

First of all I will suggest find the reason of fungal infections. Mostly it happens because of unhygienic conditions or bad dietary habits. Say, if their is overindulgence into beer, fast foods for over a period of time. Root causes should be corrected otherwise it will keep coming back again and again. I suggest use tea tree essential oil wash daily twice. Never ever use essential oil neat. Put 5 drops in a mug of water. Wash the infected area with this water. You should feel the difference within three days.

7 years is preety log period. Tell her to use sunscreen on daily basis from 9 am-4 pm to prevent further darkening. She can apply a cream containing combination of hydroquinone2% & hydrocortizone over affected area two times a day for 20-25 days. Then she should stop it without consulting consulting an expert.

Treatment for tinea versicolor may include: Medicine applied to the skin: This is the most common treatment. There are anti-fungal shampoos, soaps, creams, and lotions that can keep the yeast under control.  Oral therapy is also effective for tinea versicolor and is often preferred by patients because it is more convenient and less time consuming. Of course, oral therapy can be used in consort with topical regimens.  Oral therapy does not prevent the high rate of recurrence, and treatment with an oral or topical agent may need to be repeated intermittently throughout the year. Because tinea versicolor is a benign condition and oral therapy is not without risk, the decision to treat with an oral agent should be made only after a complete discussion of the risks involved. Treatment of this problem is long. Dietary alterations have not proved successful in the treatment of tinea versicolor. While choosing homeopathic medicines the various factors are evaluated for example, genetic predisposition, poor immune system, summer aggravation and so on. Homeopathy treatment, which gets to the root of the problem will reinforce the immune system and gradually restore the normal skin color and texture. Homeopathy treats the disease from its root ensuring the patient not suffering the similar problem in the future.
