Please help me or suggest me what to do.
For grey hair use peel of potatoes. A cup of peel of potatoes take in a bowl of water, boil it. Filter it. Then after shampoo rinse your hair with that water. Let it b dry. 3-4 days a week. For hair fall chng your shampoo into a baby shampoo. Use natural henna dipped in liquor of tea overnight. Nxt day mix curd, whole egg, 10 ml coconut oil, few drops of lemon juice, apply on scalp let it b dry then wash with water do not use shampoo on that day. With this you need proper homeopathic treatment for permanent solution. You can contact me.

If you are worried about the mole then it can be removed with a simple procedure of cautery or excision depending on the size. It usually heals by a weeks time after removing.

Hives is the common name for urticaria. If you tend to have swelling around lips and/or around eyes or any breathing difficulty, hives lasting for more than 24 hours; you need to definitely consult a dermatologist. Mild occasional /rare episode after dust/ temperature change etc can be managed with moisturizers and lactocalamine. Presence of extensive itching severe enough to distract you.

Silica may not be a word you commonly hear associated with diet (or foods that prevent hair loss, for that matter). If you’re looking to promote hair growth and prevent hair loss, however, silica will need to be on your menu. The body uses silica to help it absorb vitamins and minerals; if you’re not consuming silica, eating your vitamins might not be helping much. Silica can be found in bean sprouts and the skin of cucumbers, red and green peppers, and potatoes. Remember, when you eat these foods raw, as opposed to cooked, you’re getting more nutritional value out of them. If you want to keep it, you’d be wise to eat foods that prevent hair loss

A simple and very effective treatment for ACNE (Pimple) for everyone.
Just Follow my instructions.

You can reduce your acne by following these skin care tips from dermatologists.

Wash twice a day and after sweating. Perspiration, especially when wearing a hat or helmet, can make acne worse, so wash your skin as soon as possible after sweating.
Use your fingertips to apply a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser. Using a washcloth, mesh sponge or anything else can irritate the skin.
Be gentle with your skin. Use gentle products, such as those that are alcohol-free. Do not use products that irritate your skin, which may include astringents, toners and exfoliants. Dry, red skin makes acne appear worse.
Scrubbing your skin can make acne worse. Avoid the temptation to scrub your skin.
Rinse with lukewarm water.
Shampoo regularly. If you have oily hair, shampoo daily.
Let your skin heal naturally. If you pick, pop or squeeze your acne, your skin will take longer to clear and you increase the risk of getting acne scars.
Keep your hands off your face. Touching your skin throughout the day can cause flare-ups.
Stay out of the sun and tanning beds. Tanning damages you skin. In addition, some acne medications make the skin very sensitive to ultraviolet (UV) light, which you get from both the sun and indoor tanning devices.
Using tanning beds increases your risk for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, by 75 percent.
Consult a dermatologist if:
Your acne makes you shy or embarrassed.
The products you've tried have not worked.
Your acne is leaving scars or darkening your skin.
Today, virtually every case of acne can be successfully treated. Dermatologists can help treat existing acne, prevent new breakouts and reduce your chance of developing scars. If you have questions or concerns about caring for your skin, you should make an appointment to see a dermatologist.

Since scars are deep, recovering from them require deeper treatments like medium depth peels, dermabrasion, dermarollers, microneedling or laser resurfacing. 6-8 sittings of the treatments most suitable for you as decided by the skin doctor will provide you remarkable results in acne scars.

Use AHA Glow face wash once in a day. Use Sunscreen with SPF 30 daily. Use natural face pack of Multani Mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar for 5 minutes after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- Do not eat Junk, Eat more Vegetables and fruits especially with Vitamin C.
