Hello, you can take homeopathic medicines 1. Berberis aquifolium q (10 drops in little water) thrice a day for a week. 2. Kali brom 30 (4 drops in little water) thrice a day for a week and revert. Make a habit of 8-10 glasses of water daily. Eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits. Avoid stress and anger. Avoid harsh skin products. Avoid touching your face with your hands as this germs to your facial skin, making it to breakouts.

Betnovte C is not a cream to be applied on the face. Since you have been using it for a long time donot stop immediately. Just decrease the application to once a day for a week then alternate day for a week and then stop. Even if there is a rash on the face donot go back to using Betnovate C. Use a moisturizer and sunscreen daily. Consult a dermatologist in your area if needed.

Patches on my head. I lost so much hair and it is spreading pls give me some remedies.
Hi. Have you been to a dermatologist? If the patches are round, smooth and shiny in appearance without any hair, it could be Alopecia Areata. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder in which one's body's immune system find few hair on the head or the body as a foreign object and rejects them which leads to hairloss in patches. There is no cause for this, in many cases stress or tension is triggering factor. There is no permanent cure for this. But temporary treatment with homoeopathy can make much difference without any side-effects. Take Acid Fluor. 200/ twice a day for 1 month. Revert.

Various types of face wash won't do skin any good. Use face wash as per your skin type. If you have a dry skin, use a mild soap free face wash like moiz cleansing lotion. If your skin is oily, use a mild exfoliating face wash. There are various products available, you can look for these attributes and do accordingly. You can also do home made face masks like orange mask for oily skin and banana or papaya mask for dry skin.

Massage your scalp region as frequently as you can. This stimulates flow of the blow of your head which in turn promotes the growth of hair and better health.

From many days I hav a problem of hair loss Tried many thing but it dosent stops please tell a proper sol for it.
Hi. It's normal to lose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg, eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin), different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. Walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regularly massage head and hair with coconut oil, almond oil (depending upon your scalp type) 1 to 3 times a week. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you fit and young! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica hair conditioner as well after every head wash.

Hectic work schedules often keep us away from spending time nurturing skin
Hectic work schedules often keep us away from spending time nurturing skin. But it's easy to do it at home by simply getting proper beauty sleep.
Sleep affects physical and mental well-being. Sleep allows body to begin the healing process. Good sleep directly leads to fresh looking skin. Try and hit the sack earlier than you usually do and you will see the result within no time on your skin.

Athlete's Foot - How To Prevent It?

IAT, BHMS
Ayurveda, Mumbai
Athlete's Foot - How To Prevent It?

A common form of skin inflammation brought about by the fungal infection is called as Athlete's Foot and is most commonly seen among the athletes. In medical terms, this condition is called "tinea pedis". This generally starts in between the toes and gradually moves towards the toe nails, if left untreated. In the later stages, this infection has the tendency to move towards the palm region of the hands and other body surfaces, if left unchecked. Most often, this condition is referred to as the ringworm of the moccasin feet. 

Statistics have shown that about 15% of the population is affected by this condition. It is important to note that men have a higher chance of contracting this contagious condition than women. Young adults or old children are most likely to take the hit for this condition.

After a serious research, the National Health Service has come out with the finding that, Athlete's foot can be transmitted from one person to another either by direct or indirect contact. Any environment that is warm and moist serves as the perfect breeding place for the fungal species to cause this condition.

Getting them treated before the condition spreads to other parts of the body is a very important step that has to be taken by the person who has been diagnosed with this disease. Instead of worrying about the condition after it has set in, a few remedial precautions can be taken to prevent the onset of this disease. 

Some preventive measures are:

  1. Clean shoes and socks: The socks have to be changed at least twice a day and these must be able to absorb the sweat from the feet.
  2. Using a medicated powder: Normal talcum powder or an anti-fungal powder can be applied to the skin where the irritation prevails and this kills the fungi that might form on the surface.
  3. Precaution after swimming and going for walk: The region between the toes has to be wiped clean after swimming, bathing or going for a long walk. The basic idea is to remove the excessive moisture from the skin.
  4. Using socks and sandals: The sandals must allow some breathing space for the skin on the legs and when at home, socks without shoes can be worn. 

Preventive measures help a great deal in avoiding the complications that arise out of this Athlete's foot.

Dandruff is a generalised term but under this heading there are many other disorders. It can be psoriasis, dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, pityriasis amentecia etc. It is important to use oil. Oil the scalp 3/week and wash it 3/week. If the scaling doesn't improve then consult trichologist.
