Low level of Testosterone cause very slow growth of beard and moustaches & body hairs. For fast growth of beard & moustaches, body hairs apply these very useful methods: • Do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA yogasana daily. You can ask me for the details & steps of these asanas. • Take 1/2 teaspoon ashwagandha powder and 1/2 teaspoon of amla powder mix it and take it with water once in a day. • Do running and jogging daily as it increase the hormones levels. • Do neck massage with oil daily.

Dandruff is excessive shedding of skin on scalp. There are various types of scaling like psoriasis, pityriasis amentecia, dermatitis, seborrhoeic oleosa etc. It is important to understand the disease and treat it accordingly. Oiling is also must for scalp. Jaborandi hair oil is good for hair. Apply it 3/week at night and wash it daily with scalp cleanser. This will help you to settle with conditioning part of scalp. If scaling still persist then consult trichologist. Diet rich in minerals, protein and iron is good for hair. Drink 3 lit of water/day. Consult trichologist for hair fall.

Hair is the part of the body. It gets nutrition through blood. External applications like oil and shampoo helps to condition the scalp. They will not control the hair fall. They will help to reduce breakages. Hair is made up of minerals, protein and iron. So eat food which is rich in all theses. Drink 3 lit of water/day. Consult trichologist to treat the hair fall.

Tape a piece of banana peel, inner side down, over the wart before you go to bed. A chemical in the peel can slowly dissolve the wart. Or, try the same with a piece of lemon peel. An oil in the peel seems to discourage warts.

How to remove black heads?
Hi. Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days.

For temporary relief of itching, try these self-care measures: use a high-quality moisturizing cream on your skin. Apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area as prescribed by me avoid scratching whenever possible. Apply cool, wet compresses. Take a lukewarm bath. Wear smooth-textured, loose cotton clothing. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan which will cure your itching problem.

Hi, Treating Seborrheic Dermatituis is little time consuming, take slong time to get it treated completely. So, have patience! As you have already used strong Allopathic preparations sp. Steroids, so it would take longer for homoeopathic medication to act upon. Management: - Rinse the soap completely off your body and scalp. Avoid harsh soaps and use a moisturizer. - Avoid products that contain alcohol. These can cause the disease to flare up. - Wear smooth-textured cotton clothing. - If you have a beard or mustache, consider shaving it off. - Avoid scratching. Scratching can increase irritation and your risk of infection. - If your eyelids show signs of redness or scaling, wash them each night with baby shampoo and wipe away scales with a cotton swab. Warm or hot compresses also may help. Medication: Start with the following homoeopathic medicines: Use Schwabe's Anti-Dandruff shampoo and Atni-Dandruff oil regularly (apply oil 1-2 hrs. Before a head wash, leave it in for an hour or so. Then comb or brush your hair and wash it. wash it in the morning as going out with the oil outside can invite more dust, pollutants, etc. Onto the scalp). Take oral medication – Badiaga 200/ thrice daily, Calc. Fluor. 12X/ thrice daily and Thuja 200/ one dose once a week. Take them for 1 month, there after revert me back for further guidance. Take Care.

Excessive use of hair products like hair wax may lead to hair fall & whitening of hairs. So I suggest you to use it occasionally & apply natural oil on hairs only.
