Dear sir, I have been suffering from hairfall for 3-4 years. In 2011, I had gone through sinus checkup nd then an operation, since then hair falling started. And now the condition is, I have lost many hairs in the middle of my head. I do BALAYAM regularly 2 times a day of 5 minutes duration each. But hairfall is still not stops. I have tried Tugain 2% sol, 5% solution as recommended by doctor. But result was nill. I have the query that IS THERE ANY SOLUTION TO GAIN OR RETAIN HAIRS BY MEDICINE OR BY OPERATION in medical science? If yes, then is there any guarantee of life long?

Hair fall is not usually caused by disease but is related to aging, heredity and testosterone. Other causes are- hormonal changes for example thyroid disease, child birth and use of birth control pills. A serious illness such as tumour of ovary or adrenal gland. Prolong fever. Medication such as chemotherapy. Permanent hair straightening and excessive use of blow dryer. Emotional stress. Tinea capitis [ring worm of scalp] poor nutrition, limited food intake and deficiencies of certain nutrients. Hair loss is a indication that there is something not well in your body. Take nutritious diet sleep well and avoid stress. Take homeopathic cri-regan 15 drops in half cup of water thrice daily, but this is a temporary treatment. To get permanent cure you should share your complete history privately.

Dear, Pollution can increase pimples but there are many other causes of pimples: • excessive sebum production (sebum is oily secretion from the gland) this secretion increase at young age. • Due to hormonal imbalance. Swelling or inflamed pimples occurs due to infection. So do not touch your pimples with hand. Bacteria transfer through hands to your face. Maintain proper hygiene on your face.

I want launch allergy medicine which molecules is good for allergy. Please advise.
Best allergy medicine is Cleansing of nose with Salt Water, Allergy Occurs when cerebral fluid reduces which protects ENT Membranes and glands. So in order to protect membranes and glands from toxins, pollutants nose has to be cleared daily twice with salt water, Because Salt are metabolizers and hence salt can metabolize all toxins and prevent over reaction of immune system. You can use SOLSPRE (Buy from any chemist) to clean the nose.

Hi. I don't know what shampoos have you used previously. I would recommend you to use ketoconazole shampoo for dandruff. But make sure you keep it for 10mins and then only you wash off.

Low level of Testosterone cause very slow growth of beard and moustaches. For proper growth of beard 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.

Acne or pimples is a chronic disease involving the pilosebaceous follicles. Sebaceous glands are found most abundantly on the face and scalp, though they are present on every part of the skin except the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Though the sebaceous gland is a mini organ, it is anatomically and functionally related to the hair follicle. Cutaneous disorders attributed to the sebaceous gland are really disorders of the entire pilosebaceous unit. The areas most commonly involved in acne are the face, upper chest, and back. Other less common areas include the upper arms, buttocks, and upper thighs. Acne arises from the interaction of 4 factors 1. Excess sebum production caused by androgenic stimulation of sebaceous glands; 2. Outlet obstruction of the sebaceous follicle arising from excess production of keratinocytes (the basic cell of the epidermis); 3. Increased proliferation of the bacteriaPropionibacterium acnes that normally live in the sebaceous follicle; and 4. Inflammation caused by sebum escaping into the surrounding skin. Excessive manipulation by the patient, causing the primary lesions to disappear and leaving excoriated, raw-looking marks. This is called acne excoriée and can cause scar formation. For removal of black marks you can apply pure coconut oil daily before sleeping, don't apply while going out in sun together with this constitutional homoeopathic treatment will give you best results.

Due to hormonal changes, there is a fresh break out of pimples on the face during the pregnancy. Though after some weeks they tend to disappear due to increased blood volume and the pregnancy glow begins to set in.

Scabies is an itchy skin condition caused by the microscopic mite Sarcoptes scabei. It is common all over the world, and can affect anyone. Scabies spreads quickly in crowded conditions where there is frequent skin-to-skin contact between people. Hospitals, child-care centers, and nursing homes are examples. Scabies can easily infect sex partners and other household members. Sharing clothes, towels, and bedding can sometimes spread scabies. This can happen much more easily when the infested person has crusted scabies. You cannot get scabies from a pet. Pets get a different mite infection called mange. Symptoms are Pimple-like irritations or a rash Intense itching, especially at night Sores caused by scratching The infected person's clothes, bedding and towels should be washed in hot water and dried in a hot dryer. Bath with hot water and hand wash with hot water.Treatment is also recommended for household members and sexual partners.Several lotions are available to treat scabies. Medicines that may be prescribed include: 5% permethrin cream: This is the most common treatment for scabies.

How to remove or prevent from black shadow from faces?
What are the reason of it?
A quick and easy solution can be found in your kitchen or your nearest grocery store — lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. 1. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 2. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 3. Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey. You can also use lime juice to get rid of black spots, applying it in the same manner as described above.
