It is wrong to think that Pimple acne or dandruff are skin problems of face or head. These are just symptoms of a body laden with toxins. Therefore no local treatment like applying creams, lotions or face washes can do anything good. Even if by some medicine these are suppressed the body toxins will come out in some other form which will surely be more complicated than the present ones. From the above it is clear that when toxins are removed all such problems will go away. Only Naturopathy can remove the toxins from the body.

Lose weight. Start pranayam. It is the simplest of the exercises and extremely relaxing.  Stop munching on sugar and processed food. All the processed food including breads, cereals, energy drinks, soft drinks, energy bars and health foods are extremely high in their sugar content. Feel like having a dessert. Go for yogurt banana custard which is satisfying enough for the palate. Or, prepare the particular junk food which you feel like munching on at home.  Stop leaning on your elbows and knees and you would see the difference in two days. Always use a moisturizer and little rough body scrub made from honey or oils like coconut, almond, olive and such. They help in getting rid of the dead cells in these areas in an effective way. Sugar and rock salt are obvious choices for the granular part of the scrub. Apply a heavy moisturizer on your legs and arms. They are, generally, the driest parts of the body even if your skin type is oily. Keep the elbows and knees moisturized. Use a loofah at least 3 times a week in your bath if you have sensitive and dry skin and once a day for other skin types. It helps in regular exfoliation of the area and keeps the skin smooth. Applying coconut oil or almond oil is also beneficial as they are best oils for curing dry skin. Use bleaching fruits (fruits good for oily skin) in conjunction with moisturizing agents (liquids good for dry skin) of your applying as a knee packs, elbow pack or scrub. Like, lemon juice with sugar is a good option, even better is tomato juice or pomegranate juice with honey or oils. Fresh Lime (mausambi) juice or orange will give more potent results than lemon. Coconut oil and Walnut powder make good exfoliators for dark skin patches. Another great remedy which surely works is milk cream. Mix milk cream with a pinch of turmeric and apply on the affected areas.  Aloevera (straight from the plant) also shows lightening of the skin. Keep the elbows and knees covered as much as possible.  There should be no deep lines visible on the joints. If you can see lines, that means your skin is dry and you need to moisturize it. Apply oil from Vitamin E supplements topically. Sesame oil is great for moisturizing such areas as it has especially high proportion of essential fatty acids.  Massage the areas with oil daily. That will make the skin soft. (The skin on elbows and knees always look little darker than original skin color because of the folds in the skin which increases if you are overweight. So, to check if the color of knees and elbows have lightened, folds on the elbows or knees and see the color. That should give you the accurate state of your skin. )

1.Take some boiled carrots and mash it up. Apply this paste on the face and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Later clean the face with milk. 2.Clean the face with warm water and pat the skin immediately. Now apply Honey (shahad) to the marks and massage it gently. Leave it for 20 minutes and wash it with warm water. 3.Take 1 spoon each of lemon juice, Honey (shahad), Almond oil (badam) and milk powder in a bowl. Mix it well and apply on face. Leave it for 15 minutes and then wash.

Hi! Lichen planus pigmentosus is a very stubborn condition and the darkening it leaves behind is equally stubborn. Rule out a thyroid problem. You could use melaglow cream or kojivit gel one pea size drop for affected area at night for 2 months. Please use sunscreen like Sunban or photostable 30 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every 2-3 hours. Strict sun protection is of utmost importance in preventing further pigmentation.

A course of tablets and creams is needed for treating your problem depending upon the grade of your acne and your skin type, as different type of acne require different types of treatment. A sebum regulating face wash, will be helpful. A non comedogenic sunscreen should be used. Drink plenty of water daily and also avoid hair oil application. "Please put up 2-3 clear pictures in natural light of the affected area for better evaluation and guidance Regards!

Psoriasis

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi

Hello. I am Dr. Mani Sethi Sawhney. A homeopathy consultant. Prarctising in Preetam pura in rohini fort for more than 20 years. In my practice I have treated many chronic cases like gyne diseases, children diseases, but I have found certain patients of skin problems who hesitation trying homeopathy, so today I have chosen a skin disease, Psoriasis to discuss. What is Psoriasis? Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition in which there is a rapid built up of skin tissues. As a result lots of skin scales are formed on the skin which are rounded by red and inflamed skin. The skin is dry and it sometimes get cracked and bleeds. So the patient has a lot of suffering when he keeps on cleaning the scales from the skin and gets irritated due to the itching. In that case I will advise the patient to take homeopathy which will definitely help them in treating the problem. Coming to the causes of Psoriasis, it is due to an autoimmune disorder and it could be genetic also. The parts which are mostly effected are joints like knees and elbows, and it can also effect the other parts of the body like face, scalp, hands and feet. And rarely effected parts include nails and the genitals. The common symptoms are again the silver and white color scale that are formed on the skin over the hard and dratted and inflamed skin in patches. The nails become brittle and discolored. Then some time the joints are swollen and pain full, and this disorder can also be genetically transmitted to the other family members. The most commonly treatment given is external applications. Like ointments and moisturizers which gives the temporary cure for the disease. In homeopathy what we offer to the patient is a permanent cure of Psoriasis for that you need to visit a homeopath, who with his knowledge and art of case taking can find the true smilimum and correct remedy for your problem. In homeopathy we take that includes mental makeup and psychological problems of the patient which help in finding the true smilum and it definitely give a rapid, gentle and a permanent cure to the patient. So I strongly advise patients of Psoriasis and other skin diseases to try homeopathy with positive mind set to have a permanent cure. For that they can consult me on Lybrate or visit my clinic.
