Gum Pain Home Remedies
Try Rinse

It is recommended to use a rinse with anti-plaque properties. It helps to reduce the amount of plaque mass in your mouth at any one time. Your best bet is a rinse that contains chlorhexidine. Since such products are only available by prescription, you should ask your dentist whether one would be right for you. Some over-the-counter rinses such as Listerine has been shown to be effective in preventing plaque buildup, but they don’t work as well as those with chlorhexidine.

I am 33 years old person, I had budd-chiari syndrome since 9 years. Is there any permanent solution for my problem, I had some other problems along with this, they are umbilical hernia, inguinal hernia & gynecomastia. Please suggest a solution for my problem.

General Physician,
Budd? chiari syndrome is a condition caused by occlusion of the hepatic veins that drain the liver. It presents with the classical triad of abdominal pain, ascites and liver enlargement. Examples of occlusion include thrombosis of hepatic veins. It occurs in 1 out of a million individuals. The syndrome can be fulminant, acute, chronic, or asymptomatic. The prognosis is poor in patients with budd-chiari syndrome who remain untreated, with death resulting from progressive liver failure in 3 months to 3 years from the time of diagnosis. Following portosystemic shunting, however, the 5-year survival rate for patients with the syndrome is 38-87%. The actuarial 5-year survival rate following liver transplantation is 70%. Any more doubts can be asked privately. Signs and symptoms physical examination may reveal the following: jaundice ascites hepatomegaly splenomegaly ankle edema stasis ulcerations prominence of collateral veins.

To get that clear, flawless and glowing skin, swear by Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising daily. Always apply sunscreen half an hour before going out in the sun. Reapply sunscreen every 3-4 hours till evening. Keep your skin covered with hat and a scarf in pollution and dust. If you think that applying great products alone will give you glowing skin, then you are wrong. You are what you eat. Nutrition plays an important role to keep you glowing inside out. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains. Try to limit intake of junk, smoke and alcohol as this harms your skin the most. One key point I would emphasise here is to exfoliate your skin regularly. Regular exfoliation can be done both by using natural products like gram flour and yogurt or over the counter and safe to use products containing AHAs, BHAs or Glycolic Acid. Before buying these chemical containing cleansers, always go under a patch test by Dermatologist so as to test any possible irritation by them. Using sunscreen after exfoliation is must, so never skip the sunscreen. Exfoliation along with daily moisturisation works wonders on your skin. Pamper your skin once in a week with a good face mask, massage and relaxing bath. If your skin remains dull even after following all the above advices, then do not hesitate to book an appointment with your nearest dermatologist. An expert advise is always recommended to test the underlying causes of skin dullness and help it improve faster.

Tips to Reduce Hair Loss

MBBS
General Physician, Chittorgarh
Tips to Reduce Hair Loss

Hair loss is one of the most common problems being faced today. Though losing 25 to 50 hair strands in a day is normal, sometimes the hair loss can be lot more and rapid causing worry and concern. Here are some simple measures which can help to control hair fall to a good extent.

1. Feed your hair: Have a good balanced diet

Hair requires a good number of vitamins and minerals too.

Vitamin A encourages healthy production of sebum in the scalp and also helps in hair growth. It is found in dark leafy green vegetables, sweet red peppers, mango, papaya etc.

Vitamin B12 found in milk, and milk products, beans etc. is useful for hair growth.

Biotin is very important for hair health. A deficiency of biotin can cause hair fall and hair thinning. So, if you are suffering from hair fall, include foods like dairy products, nuts, green vegetables e.g. cabbage that are rich source of biotin in your regular diet.

2. Give hair their building blocks: Have a protein-rich diet

Proteins are the building blocks of hair. Adequate protein intake promotes hair health and in turn helps curb hair loss. Indulge in a protein-rich diet, which comes in the form of lentils, dried beans, cottage cheese and of course, milk.

3. Hydrate your hair: Have enough water

Keep yourself hydrated. The hair shaft comprises one quarter water, so drink at least eight to twelve glasses of water in a day to stay hydrated and for growth of healthy hair.

4. Pamper your hair: Massage your Scalp with Essential Oils

A scalp massage with essential oil for couple of minutes helps your hair follicles remain active.

Oil can penetrate well within the hair shaft, thereby preventing the hair from losing its moisture. The hair is less likely to suffer damage and stays dense as well as strong. Castor oil especially has excellent hair growth properties and is considered an effective remedy against hair loss.

Warm a little oil for a few minutes. Gently rub it over clean scalp and hair shafts allowing the oil to penetrate.  Leave it on for a few hours, preferably overnight and then wash with a mild shampoo.

5. Nourish your hair: Use hair balms and hair mask

Hair loses moisture quickly. You can use special balms and hair masks to address this problem. Use balm either simultaneously with shampoo or immediately after rinsing it off. The correct way to apply balm is to smear it along the whole length of the hair, while avoiding rubbing it into the skin. Use a good hair mask once in a couple of weeks.

6. Go green : Rub green tea into your hair 

Go Green !

Studies have shown that rubbing green tea into hair may help curb hair loss problem. All you need to do is brew two bags of green tea in one cup of water, leave to cool and thereafter, apply it to your hair. Rinse your hair thoroughly after an hour.

7. Keep hair clean: Shampoo regularly

Regular hair washing is a part of preventing hair loss by the way of keeping hair and scalp clean. By doing so, you are lowering the risk of infections and dandruff that may lead to hair breakage or loss.  Do not hesitate to shampoo hair on a regular basis.

8. Do it correct: Shampoo Correctly

Comb your hair thoroughly before washing. The quantity of shampoo to be used depends on the length of your hair. Be careful not to use too much.

Put shampoo onto your palms, and rub them together to whip up the foam. Then apply the shampoo to the roots of your hair. Use massaging movements, making sure to only touch the skin with your soft fingertips (and not with your nails, to avoid causing scratches).

9. Be gentle: Avoid hot water

Hair is a delicate structure. Do not use excessively hot water to wash your hair. Hot water strips your hair of colour and activates the oil-producing glands. Use lukewarm or tepid water which will help dilute the oil glands’ secretions, remove dirt, and improve blood circulation.

It’s best to end with a cool or cold shower. Such a finish will stimulate circulation at the hair roots and make your hair look smooth and shiny.

10. Be tender: Avoid brushing wet hair 

Wet hair is very weak. Brushing wet hair increases chances of hair breakage. If you must comb wet hair, use a very wide-toothed comb. Use your fingers to undo tangles, not a comb or brush. 

11. Know what is bad for hair: Avoid blow drying

If you want to keep hair healthy, you must know how to take care of them. Avoid rubbing your hair dry with a towel. Rather, let hair dry naturally. 

12. Let your Hair Breath: Avoid Smoking 

Smoking reduces the amount of blood that flows to the scalp and this causes a reduction in hair growth. 

13. Vitalize your Hair: Exercise Regularly

Make time for physical activity every day. Walk, swim or bike for 30 minutes a day helps balance hormonal levels, reducing stress levels thereby reducing hair fall. 

14. Keep your hair happy: De-stress yourself

Meditate. Have a good hobby or listen to soft music to reduce stress. 

15. Keep your head sweat free: Use a Bandanna

For men who wear helmet, the sweat accumulates in the pores and weakens hair roots causing hair loss. Wear a cotton bandanna or handkerchief over your hair under the helmet, so the sweat is absorbed and hair breakage prevented.

16. Be hair friendly: Chose a good hair style

If you are losing your hair, you must loosen up your hair. Hairstyles such as ponytails, braids and artificial hairstyles pull hair or tug hair follicles, and can eventually cause hair loss.

17. Keep hair healthy: Take care of your health 

Health problems are harbingers of hair loss. Ensure you deal with chronic illnesses, high fevers and infections properly to ensure healthy hair. 

18. Be watchful: Keep an eye on your medications 

Certain medications like cholesterol reducing medications, blood thinners etc may cause hair loss as a side-effect. Be in touch with your treating doctor and your dermatologist

19. Be nature friendly: Avoid chemicals

Harsh chemicals and permanent hair colour products could be damaging for hair health. When you are experiencing hair loss, it is advisable to reduce the frequency of hair colour or other hair treatments.

20. Regenerate your hair: Get your beauty  sleep 

Healthy sleeping patterns can help you solve many hair problems, so get a good 7-8 hour sleep everyday.

21. Protect your hair: Cap it !

Hair fall can also be caused due to exposure to the sun rays. Harsh sun rays can make the hair shafts dry, brittle causing hair fall. The best way is to cover your hair when you are going out under the sun.

22. Be Soft: Avoid sleeping with your hair down

If your hair is long or medium-length, you should braid it before going to bed. This will prevent it from becoming tangled and frizzy. It will also prevent hair breakage and hair fall.

23. Power up your Hair: Practice Yoga

Pranayam and yoga revitalise every cell of the body. 

Yogasanas like Suryanamaskar, Vajrasana, Sarvangasana, Halasana and pranayam rituals like kapalbhati, and anulomvilom help hair growth. These asanas cleanse our system and open up blockages allowing proper oxygen and blood flow, which results in nourishing hair follicles.

24. Stimulate your Hair: Acupressure

Acupressure is known to stimulate hair growth considerably. Balayam, which is an acupressure therapy increases circulation in the scalp and stimulates hair growth. For this pose, you should sit in the padmasana pose and place your fingertips facing each other. Let your thumbs be away from your fingers and rub the nails of one hand with those of the other hand. Make sure you rub only the broadest part of the nails together.

25. Get it Right: Visit your Dermatologist

Do not hesitate to see your Dermatologist if your hair loss is sudden, or continuous and gradual; or you notice hair shedding in large amounts after combing or brushing, or if your hair becomes thinner or falls out.
