Simple you remove with trimming machine care fully. Don't use hair removing cream for blade. Hold hair with hand and trim with trimming machine. Pubic hair growth is natural.

Hi lybrate user, never kept hair remover cream more than 5 minutes. In few persons it make burn and does black the skin. Pl. Avoid that more than 5 minutes. Because it contain high concentrate chemicals. You can use v-johan hair removal cream for it. This has not harmful to skin. After this you can use lotion hq 5% for 5 drop on that area at night for reducing blackness.

Impetigo - 9 Factors that Can Trigger it

Impetigo - 9 Factors that Can Trigger it

Impetigo is a type of skin infection commonly seen in children and rarely in adults. It is contagious in nature; bacteria like staphylococcus aureus and at times, streptococcus pyogenes, are responsible for the occurrence of this infection. Generally, the face, hand and neck regions of the children get affected. Impetigo can be classified into two kinds: non-bullous impetigo or impetigo contagiosa and bullous impetigo.

Non-bullous impetigo appears like red sores, which burst rapidly, leaving behind a brownish yellow crust and is more contagious in nature. Bullous impetigo, on the other hand, is generally painless and the blisters are fluid-filled.

The causes of impetigo are as follows

1. Warm and humid climate may trigger impetigo

2. Contact with an infected child can spread the infection to a healthy child.

3. Cuts or injuries can be responsible for impetigo

4. Sports like football and wrestling can also sometimes lead to impetigo.

5. Insect bite and skin rashes

6. Prolonged use of diapers

7. Skin problems like eczema or burns

8. Skin inflammation may also result in impetigo.

9. At times, animal bites may also result in impetigo.

Impetigo is generally noticed in children belonging to the age group of two-five years. Some of the most common symptoms of impetigo are mentioned below

1. Blisters that are filled with fluid

2. Red colored sores can pop out on the infected region

3. Itching sensation

4. Lymph nodes may become swollen

5. Pus may come out from the sores

6. Sometimes the sores may look like pimples

Impetigo, though easily curable, must not be ignored as it can spread rapidly to the other parts of your body. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Dear Sir, I'm suffering with scalp folliculitis from last 3 yrs. Used Isotretinoin 10 mg and other antibiotics as well but no use. Once I stop taking tablets they were appearing back. My lab report for staphylococcus came negative and my doctor told me that it is sterile pus. Can you pls tell me if there are medicines that cure these pustules getting recurrent in homeopathy. At present I have almost 25 pustules on my scalp with itch and pain. As far as I know, I don't have any serious health problems. But I have severe body heat from many years and my immune system seems to be very weak, I often get cold, fever and food poisonings.

Hair fall, dandruff and tendency for gray hair are dependent on several factors. From stress anaemia to thyroid we have good treatment in homeopathy without causing any side effects. Homoeo medicines are given internally to restore healthy growth of hair and prevent hair fall. Precautions for care of your hair -take nutritious healthy high protin food -have regular vigorous physical exercise so that blood circulation reaches hair follicles and nourishes the hair. -avoid mental stress and smoking and such unhealthy habits. -use warm or cold water for bath and not very hot water. - hard water is harmful. Boiling and cooling will reduce hardness. - when the hair is wet, it is weaker and don't rub too much with towel. - use wide toothed comb so that there is no pulling pressure on the hair.

The procedure is kapalbhati pranayama procedure o sit in a comfortable crossed leg posture, sukasana (using padmasana or vajrasanais the best) and keep your back straight. Rest your hands on the knees using gyana mudra or chin mudra. O inhale deeply trough your nose, this will expand you abdomen. O exhale using a great force so that your abdominal muscles contract to the maximum o these exhalations are similar to your breath outs, but they should be forceful o make sure while exhaling, the air should be pushed out of your lungs by contracting the diaphragm o after exhalation again do inhalation, but this time with out any effort. To do this just relax your lungs, they will automatically expand and fill with air o one cycle of kapalabhati pranayama include one deep inhalation, then forceful exhalation and an effortless inhalation. O a learner can practise up to three rounds, each with 15 exhalations. Small breaks between each round are allowed benefits of kapalbhati pranayama o it helps in detoxifying your lungs and the respiratory tracks o purifies blood by boosting the oxygen supply o helps in reducing belly fat, as it tones your abdominal muscles o usually it is practised before practising yoga poses and before meditation, this will improve your concentration, alertness and calms mind from unwanted thoughts o students practising this pranayama will have great results in thier studies, because it increases the concentration and sharpness of their mind.

Dear Lybrate User, *Application of cucumber juice mixed with juices of carrot or lettuce is an excellent home remedy for pimples. Because of its cooling and soothing effects Aloe Vera is accepted as an excellent herb and is widely used as a natural herbal remedy for acne. It is recommended to apply half a cup of Aloe Vera pulp externally to the skin twice a day. *A paste of fresh fenugreek leaves, applied and washed off with warm water before going to bed is good for removing scars of old pimples *Prepare a mixture of lemon juice and rose water in equal quantities. Apply this mixture on the affected areas and wash off with fresh water after half an hour. About 15 days application helps cure acne, pimples and scars.

Do let me know your current medications to treat acne? Acne is a common problem in teen. Almost everybody will get pimples during their teen years. First, Don't try to self treat acne. Some popular nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products can cause a serious reaction(rare), mostly it is normal to have acne in teenage.For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, Avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin C (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin E on scars. You may have heard that applying vitamin E to a scar will help it heal faster. But according to a study , applying the nutrient directly onto a scar can actually hinder its healing. In the study, vitamin E either had no effect or made matters worse for 90% of the patients, and 33% who put vitamin E on the skin developed a contact dermatitis. Increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids through a diet significantly rich in fish and seafood results in lower rates of an inflammatory disease like acne. A low-glycemic-index diet also reduces acne risk. I being a both a registered dietitian (RD) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications . I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for Rx.
