Why did comes energy in private parts and it's comes night very hard no itching spots wat reason for this problem.
Fungal infection or Ring worm. When occurs in groin, called as jock itch. Usually fungal infection is common in moist areas of body like skin folds. It's mostly circular or round in appearance. May be red or black in colour. Treatment depending on the type and severity. Avoid sharing clothes, towels and soap; sweating also increases it. As it has to be differentiated from eczema and infection, its a must to see and confirm the diagnosis for proper treatment. So, please send photos of the affected area by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Ac use is not related to fairness of skin. In fact people who stay in ac regularly are more prone to skin problems. Ac is not recommended for fairness or skin health at all. Next for fairer skin, make a face pack mixing multani mitti+ chandan powder+haldi+ lemon juice + rise water and apply daily once till you t dries. Then wash with warm water. Always use a sun scree with spf 30 or more before stepping out in sun.

Acne Problems - Know Everything About It!

Acne Problems - Know Everything About It!

Acne is one of the main problems teenagers and young adolescents have to face in their day to day lives. It is not just an esthetic issue but also a psychological one as the condition can really affect the people emotionally. The main cause for this is the hormonal changes that occur with teenage but also the changing food habits that set in at this age. The oily skin of some people makes it conducive for developing acne, than in people with normal or dry skin.

Types: They can be classified based on severity and type of lesion

  1. Based on severity, they can be mild, moderate, and severe.
  2. Based on the type of lesion, they can be whiteheads, blackheads, bumps, nodular, or cystic.
  3. Based on duration, they can be acute or chronic. The acute phase is more infective and can also be cystic or pustular.

Management: Acne problems can be managed in both therapeutic and preventive mode. Treatment is undertaken to address the issues in the acute phase. Preventive measures can be taken to ensure the incidence of acne is reduced.

Treatment: From a topical treatment point of view, three compounds are commonly used to treat acne.

  1. Retinoids: These are vitamin A derivatives and are useful in treating both blackheads and whiteheads.
  2. Benzoyl peroxide: This over-the-counter product is aimed at reducing the bacteria on the surface of the skin, which in turn reduces the acne.
  3. Antibiotics: In the case of cystic or pustular acne, antibiotics can be prescribed to deal with the issue. These also can be used along with the retinoid or benzoyl peroxide for better effect.

Acne scar removal: For people with severe acne, the scars become a huge cause of concern. These can be removed by:

  1. Laser: A beam of laser is used to get rid of the darker tissue on the surface as a result of acne. This reduces the bacterial concentration and sebum content in the skin, both of which lead to severe acne.
  2. Photofacials: The outer layer is cooled and the inner layer is heated through a probe. This causes the production of collagen, which promotes skin regeneration and helps in getting rid of the scar tissue.

The skin may appear red and swollen for a couple of days, but will gradually improve with time.

General tips to reduce the effect of acne:

  1. Reduce the use of irritants (creams, perfumes, and deodorants in the area of acne).
  2. Stay away from harsh sunlight, or do so with sufficient protection.
  3. Avoid oily food, which worsens the condition.
  4. Drink sufficient water to keep the skin hydrated.
  5. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables for better skin.
  6. Use natural scrubs like fruit peels and reduce chemical use. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

There are falling my hair near side of head. Are you have any ideas to save this.

There are falling my hair near side of head. Are you have any ideas to save this.
Hello, there can be many reasons behind it like *physical or emotional stress, inadequate protein intake, genetics, anemia, aging, hormonal changes, prolonged illness, deficiency of vitamin b6 and folic acid, thyroid diseases. *hair fall can also result when one indulges in too much drying, blow drying or use of hot curlers. *dandruff can also be great cause behind hair fall. Follow the tips *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 a sound sleep. *avoid too much exposure of your hair to sunlight. *avoid hot hair styling tools, as they damage hair and cause split ends. *it is best not to comb the hair while it is wet as this leads to greater chances of hair breakage.

These are the methods to treat pimples - •Steam your face to open the pores ,which in turn clear the skin .steam your face for a couple of minutes. • 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 face again & again 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. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTSHODHAK syrup of BAIDYANATH company once a day after meals

For real obstinate cases of dandruff where regular anti-dandruff shampoos don’t work, include zinc and essential fatty acids which guard against dandruff and a dry scalp. Foods such as whole wheat, oats, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, cashews, soybean and vegetable oils are good sources of zinc and essential fatty acids."

For skin problems, we need to see the case to come to any conclusion. Without visualizing the condition, it is difficult to come to any conclusion regarding skin disease. So if possible, do visit the clinic or book an online appointment for the treatment. Fungal infection usually occurs recurrently, so the type of infection needs to be analysed. It may be either allergic, scabies, fungal, urticaria, eczema, psoriasis, lupus or any other disease. For this, you need to take proper homeopathic treatment along with maintaining of hygienic conditions.
