I am 24 years old female and I am having hair fall issue from past many months.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath,
I am 24 years old female and I am having hair fall issue from past many months.
Taking care of your hair 1 take nutritious healthy food 2 have regular vigorous physical exercise so that blood circulation reaches hair follicles and nourishes the hair. 3 avoid mental stress and smoking and such unhealthy habits. * have adequate rest and timely sleep 4 use warm or cold water for bath and not very hot water. 5 when the hair is wet, it is weaker and don't rub too much with towel. 6 use wide toothed comb so that there is no pulling pressure on the hair. Hair growth is dependent on several factors. We have good treatment in homoeopathy without causing adverse effects. These medicines are given internally and they improve the system to promote healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. If you are interested, please let me know- 7 what is your height, weight, profession and whether it is a touring job? 8 since how long you have this problem? 9 do you have dry skin? 10 do you have dandruff? 11 have you history of any serious illness. 12 do you have anaemia? can be checked from report of blood test. 13 is it hereditary in your family? based on your symptoms and other particulars, I will prescribe appropriate medicine.

could be because of many reasons but commonly it is due to allergy or infection. You need to visit eye specialist to differentiate between the two as the treatment is different. Also get your eyes checked for any glass power

My skin gets tanned what I have to do?

MD
Dermatologist,
My skin gets tanned what I have to do?
Hi. You should use some good sunscreen having spf of 30 in morning half an hour before sun exposure and you have to repeat its application again after three hours till 4 pm. This will prevent the further tanning. For already tanned skin use kojic acid at night time. You can also use lemon and honey twice a week which are natural bleaching agents.

General precaution = stay out of the sun so that these areas don’t darken even more. If you can’t avoid the sun, wear hats, cover up. Along with it, eat a well-balanced diet, avoid cosmetics, avoid direct exposure of skin to sunlight. Use Richfeel Anti-Blemish Cream . For better result kindly consult .

Is there need for me to take any vitamin?
Follow these best methods for treatment of hair fall • Add protein containing items in your foods for healthy hair growth such as take a bowl of cereal daily and a glass of milk or 100 gm cheese or 1-2 eggs.. • Stress is one of the main cause of hair fall. To reduce hairfall, Practice Yogasana like SHIRSHASANA and SARWANGASANA only under the guidance of Expert. • you can use MAHABHRINGRAJ TEL of BAIDYANATH COMPANY and apply it 3 times in a week massage your scalp for 10 to 15 minutes daily. It increases blood circulation in your scalp and enhances hair growth. • Avoid the excess use of products such as hair colours or shampoo as they cause destruction of hair follicles. * Take Vitamin-E rich foods like dry fruits (Almonds, Pista etc) daily. * Apply the egg yolk to the scalp atleast once a week. It gives nourishment to hair root and enhances hair growth.

I have a number of acne, I used many medicines but it's of no work. What should I do?
These are the methods to treat fastly acne - • Imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. * Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste & apply on the pimples three times a week. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day.

I think I am addicted to masturbation. How do I control it? Is masturbation a reason for acne?

I think I am addicted to masturbation. How do I control it? Is masturbation a reason for acne?
If you masturbate frequently because you feel lonely, find ways to be as socially engaged as possible. This means that you should join as many clubs or activities as you can, accept and give more invitations to people, and go out of your way to make more friends. If you want to date someone, consider asking a friend to set you up or join an online dating site. •Another thing you can do is to limit the times when you are likely to be home alone. If you tend to masturbate in the hour or two before your parents get home from work, go for a walk during that time, or do your homework in a coffee shop. •Even if all of your friends are busy, you can still limit your impulse to masturbate by going out in public. For instance, instead of watching the game at home by yourself, watch it at a sports bar. Even if you're not hanging out with friends, you will not be alone, ultimately having no time for masturbation. Stop watching porn on your computer. Yes acne can be related to hormonal changes in body.
