Hi. It's normal to loose 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. aManagement: 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. 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 Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, 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. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month.

I have a pimples problem and dark spots in face in summer their are soo many pimples came out the face.
Dear Lybrate User, *wonder product which you already have in your kitchen and it can help you fight against pimples is baking soda. A mixture of baking soda and lemon juice can be applied on the skin to make it pimple free. Baking soda is an amphoteric compound which means it can work both as an acid and as a base. It helps in neutralizing the skin’s pH, imbalance in which is often a cause behind acne. It also dries the skin removing any extra oil and mixing some baking soda with water works wonderfully in cleansing and exfoliating our skin. *Avoid spicy, maida, junk foods. *Consume more fresh fruit juice. *Practice yoga, breathing exercise.

When I stand too long my back Nd body pains. Im suffering from heavy hai fall. Nd there is rarely any hair left now. I went to consult many ENT doctors But I didn't get a proper answer for it, just gave lots of medicines. I tested thyroid. Nd I dont have it. Pls help me.

Good to know that your thyroid is normal & I am sure if you get other basic tests like cbc for hb & infection in body, blood sugar may also be normal. At 20 you are suffering from anxiety and it happens with lots of girls because the formative years towards a mature womanhood takes longer in absence of proper guidance. Please do not take any anti anxiety medicines, you will be hooked for life. Modify your lifestyle. Face the fear of sunlight but do get your eyes examined. Do write back your hb. Hair fall can be due to general weakness or a local infection on scalp. Use ketaconazole shampoo, easily available on any shop-this shampoo does remove impurities from scalp. Home remedy is to apply either of these & wait for an hour, shampoo later clearing every area of scalp of these 1) curd 2) vinegar 3) lemon juice but it can be drying for hair, though it is an excellent antiseptic 4) henna powder mixed with water only. Initially the hair loss will be more, do not get upset as they are the weak hair & they have to fall. But hair growth of new hair will be healthier.

do let me know if you also have blackheads? and what current medications and remedies you already tried 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.

Hii lipomas are a collection of fat in a localised area. If it's causing any discomfort, or any pain, or if it's of cosmetic importance than you can get it removed. There are various techniques to extrude it. It hardly takes a few mins and the wound heals in a few days.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I have thik hair type. From many months I am having hair fall, there is also dandruff. Please help.
Dear lybrate user, hair growth occurs in cycles. Each cycle consists of a long growing phase (anagen), a short transitional phase (catagen) and a short resting phase (telogen). At the end of the resting phase, the hair falls out (exogen) and a new hair starts growing in the follicle beginning the cycle again. Normally, about 40 hairs reach the end of their resting phase each day and fall out. When more than 100 hairs fall out per day, clinical hair loss may occur. Hair loss have many causes such as:- 1) shrinkage of the hair follicles due to the influence of androgenic hormones. 2) under-nutrition of the hair due to fungal infection on the scalp. 3) effects of radio therapy or chemotherapy. 4) nutritional deficiencies. 5) autoimmune diseases. Modes of treatment for hairfall/alopecia includes surgical modes, oral medicine & local external application. The minimum duration of the course of oral medicines & external application is 6 months. You need the following medications:- 1) take 5 drops of thuja 1000, once in a week. 2) take 5 drops of homoeopathic acid flour 200 every morning before brushing your teeth. 3) take 4 tablets from biochemic kali sulph 6x tablets, thrice daily. Just chew the tablets as those tablets are sweet in taste. 4) take homoeopathic mother tincture jaborandi q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

Homeopath, Delhi
Hi sir! Can you please suggest me some home made remedies for clear and baby pink skin.
Thanks in advance.
Hello Lybrate-user Always remember what goes in your body, shows on your skin. So maintaining a healthy diet and physical activity level is very important. Some of the effective home remedies for clear skin are- 1-Detox Water-2 liters water+ sliced 1 cucumber+sliced 1 lemon+ a handful of mint leaves- mix everything and keep on sipping it entire day 2-Coconut Oil- you need virgin coconut oil and Cotton ball or cotton pad Lightly warm up the oil. Dot the oil all over the skin with your fingertips and massage the area for a minute or two. Let the oil soak in for a couple of minutes. Wipe away the excess oil with a cotton ball/pad Coconut oil is an excellent natural moisturizer for the skin. Its antimicrobial properties will keep the skin clean and infection-free. The phytochemicals present in it are powerful antioxidants that scavenge free radicals and impart a natural and healthy glow to your skin 3-Apple Cider Vinegar You need- 1 part apple cider vinegar 1 part water Cotton ball Mix the vinegar with water and soak the cotton ball in it. Apply this on the skin and leave it on overnight. Wash the area as usual in the morning. You can also add a teaspoon of ACV to a glass of water and drink it every morning. Do this every night before going to bed. The acids present in ACV exfoliate the dead skin cells and reveals a fresh and healthy layer of skin cells. ACV is also an astringent and will prevent your pores from getting infected and inflamed 4-Green Tea Daily consumption of green tea is recommended for a healthy body and also for healthy and clear skin. Green tea is full of antioxidants that will nourish, heal, and detoxify your body. The condition of your body from the inside is reflected on your skin. Green tea is also good to reduce blood cholesterols levels and maintain optimum heart and bone health 5-Lemon Take a lemon and cut it in two halves. Take one half and rub it directly onto your skin in a circular motion. Do this for five minutes. Rinse your face with cold water Lemon juice is a rich source of vitamin C, which helps in skin lightening. This remedy helps you to get rid of spots and blemishes and paves the way for clear, flawless skin 6-Honey On a clean and dry face, apply a thin layer on the skin. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then, rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat this every day for glowing and clear skin. Honey contains vitamins and minerals that nourish the skin. It also contains antioxidants, called flavonoids, which give you youthful and glowing skin. Its cleansing properties will keep the skin pores clean 7-Aloe Vera Take a leaf from the aloe vera plant Remove the thorny sides and the green outer covering from the aloe vera leaf. Cut the gel into small cubes. In order to use the gel, you can either grind the cubes to a pulp or rub the cubes directly onto the skin. Include the aloe vera remedy in your daily skin care routine for spot-free, flawless skin. Aloe vera is known to have skin-friendly and antiseptic properties. It is a well-known moisturizer and helps in clearing the skin of blemishes and spots 8-Olive Oil You need- Extra virgin olive oil Soft washcloth Hot water Take a few drops of this oil, and apply it thoroughly on the skin. Follow this up with a gentle massage in circular motions. Leave it on for a few minutes. Then, wipe it off using a washcloth dipped in hot water. Repeat this every night before going to bed. Olive oil contains vitamin E that hydrates the skin and restores its freshness and elasticity (13). The oil will absorb all the impurities, leaving a clean and clear skin 9-Oatmeal You need- 2 tablespoons oatmeal 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon honey Mix all the ingredients to form a thick paste. Add a little water if required. Apply this mask on the face and neck, and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Apply this mask twice a week. Oatmeal soothes the skin and exfoliates the dead skin cells. It also moisturizes the skin, thus keeping it at its optimum health. The anti-inflammatory compounds and antioxidants found in oatmeal are added benefits for the skin 10-Rose Water- Place the rose water in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Apply it all over a clean face and neck using the cotton ball. Let it air dry. Moisturize as usual 11-Potato Cut the potato into round slices. Take a slice and rub it onto your skin in circular motions. Rub the slices for five minutes and wash it off with cold water. Follow this routine once daily for best results. Potatoes contain natural enzymes that have bleaching properties. Hence, using a potato slice for treating spots, blemishes, and discolorations can help you get clear, flawless skin 12-Turmeric Mix two tablespoons of turmeric with water to make a thick paste. Apply this paste over your face. Let it stay on for about five minutes. Then, rinse your face with cold water Turmeric is a natural antiseptic and is widely used to treat minor cuts and wounds. It also has skin lightening properties due to which it can get rid of those spots and blemishes 13-Tomato Make a pulp of the tomato and mix it with two teaspoons of rose water. Apply this mixture on your face and keep it on for 10 minutes. Wash your face with cool water and pat dry with a soft towel. Apply this pack to your face and skin daily to reap maximum benefits. Tomato has antioxidant properties that keep the skin youthful and also help in lightening spots and blemishes on the skin Additional Tips To Get Clear Skin Apart from the home remedies listed above, here are a few tips to get radiant and spot-free skin. Drink Water – Drink lots of water. It will flush out all the toxins and help maintain your skin’s hydration levels from within. This will help you get clear, glowing skin. This is a clear skin secret that works for everyone. Eat A Balanced Diet – Speaking of tips to get clear skin, it’s time to talk about your diet. A balanced diet plays a vital role in getting clear skin. Include fresh fruits/juices and green leafy vegetables in your diet.

Psoriasis And Its Causes!

MBBS, MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Faridabad
Psoriasis And Its Causes!

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease where the skin cells form a mass of scales. These patches of skin are dry, red and itchy. It is an autoimmune disease which usually occurs on the skin of the back, scalp, palms, knees, elbows and around the fingernails and toenails, but some people have the diseased patches of skin all over the body. The patches may also crack, flake and bleed. The condition has no definite cure but the symptoms can be treated and managed.

Causes of Psoriasis

The following factors are proven to have contributed to cases of psoriasis:

1. Genetics
More than 32% of the cases of psoriasis have been linked to genes. In case of identical twins, if one twin has the disease, the other has a 70% chance of getting it too. There are several genes associated with the disease and most of these genes are related to the immune system. T cells (lymphocytes which affect cell specific immunity) can also cause psoriasis.

2. HIV
Human Immuno-deficiency Virus adversely affects the immune system and increases susceptibility of all kinds of infections and diseases. HIV-positive individuals have been found to have an increased risk of psoriasis than HIV-negative people.

3. Other diseases
Diseases like strep throat, chronic infections, skin infections and stress may be responsible for the condition. Other factors like obesity, alcoholism, skin dryness and smoking can also lead to psoriasis.

4. Medication
Anti-malarial, anti-inflammatory and blood pressure medicines can cause psoriasis as a side effect. The disease is also an effect of withdrawal from topical steroid creams and other steroid-based medication.

Symptoms of Psoriasis

The symptoms of psoriasis may vary from patient to patient. However, if more than two of the following signs are seen, it is likely that psoriasis is the causative condition:

  1. A whitish and silvery mass of scales surrounded by red patches of stinging, itchy skin
  2. The appearance of blisters or rashes on the dry scaly skin and also along the nails
  3. Bumps on the folded skin like back of the knees, armpits etc.
  4. Diseased patches of skin can crack, peel and bleed
  5. A sharp and localized pain in the joints accompanied by stiffness
  6. Soreness in the throat
  7. Tiny depressions in the nails or large brown patches under the nails
  8. Swelling and tenderness of the limbs
  9. Dental plaque
  10. Muscle pain due to the swollen bands of connective tissue. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.
