You should maintain hygiene, and take good protein diet avoid spicy, oily food stuffs. If possible limit your salt intake Maintain a healthy life style avoid stress and if your skin is scaling off and severe itching is persistent then go to gynecologist asap.

Acne can be a painful and embarrassing skin condition, and the scars it leaves behind are an unwelcome reminder of that. A dermatologist can help remove raised or pitted scars. While hyper-pigmented blemishes may fade after several months, you can help speed up the process. Realistically, you will not be able to make acne scars disappear in a single night, but the remedies, products, treatments, and skincare tips will certainly produce a noticeable difference over time. Apply fresh lemon juice. Lemon juice has natural skin bleaching properties, and can help to effectively lighten your acne scars. Simply combine equal parts lemon juice and water and apply this liquid directly onto your scars, avoiding the surrounding skin. Wash off the lemon juice after 15 to 25 minutes or you could put the lemon juice on overnight as a mask. Use honey. Honey is a great natural solution for clearing up pimples and reducing the red marks they leave behind. This is because honey contains antibacterial properties and helps to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. Raw or manuka honey is the most effective. It can be dabbed directly onto the scarred area, using a q-tip. Experiment with aloe vera. The sap of the aloe vera plant is a soothing natural substance which can be used to relieve many ailments, from burns to wounds to acne scars. Aloe vera helps to rejuvenate and moisturize the skin, encouraging acne scars to fade. It is possible to buy aloe vera products in the drugstore, but the best thing to do is buy an aloe vera plant and use the sap from a broken leaf. This gel-like sap can be applied directly on the scarring, and there is no need to wash off. Use an ice cube. Ice is an extremely simple home remedy which can help to fade acne scars by soothing the inflamed skin and reducing redness. To use, just wrap an ice cube in a clean cloth or piece of paper towel and hold it against the scarred skin for a minute or two, til the area starts to feel numb. Sometimes it can burn. For medication consult online in private.

Patchy Hair Loss

Dermatologist, Pune
Patchy Hair Loss

Alopecia areata also called as patchy hair loss is a non scarring type of hair loss. It can affect any area of the body and can present in different patterns. It is a benign condition, however it can cause significant psychological stress in the affected patients.

Causes of alopecia areata:

The exact cause of alopecia areata is still an enigma. It is supposed to be an autoimmune condition. It is believed that the immune system of the body plays a role against the hair follicles.

Various triggering factors like stress, hormones, diet, infectious agents, vaccination are also believed to play a role in pathogenesis of alopecia areata.

Alopecia areata is also associated with certain other autoimmune conditions like diabetes mellitus, vitiligo, anemia, and thyroid disease.

Clinical Features:

Alopecia areata commonly manifests as localised well demarcated patches of hair loss. The patches may be single or multiple in nature.  Scalp is the most common site, although any part of the body may be affected. Alopecia  areata may affect the eyebrows, eyelashes, axillary hair, pubic hair or any other part if the body.

Treatment:

Corticosteroids have been the mainstay in the treatment of alopecia areata. Topical, oral or parenteral preparations can be used.

Intralesional corticosteroids have been the treatment of choice in adults with alopecia areata.

ILS is given in the deep dermis or upper subcutaneous tissue. Injections are repeated every 4 to 6 weeks.

Homeopathic Remedies For Clear And Glowing Skin

Homeopathic Remedies For Clear And Glowing Skin

Homeopathic Remedies for Clear and Glowing Skin
The skin can lose its glow and get dull and discoloured. Sun exposure, Chloasma, freckles and scars due to acne are just a few reasons. Although not a life-threatening issue, people with dull and darkened facial skin usually consider it a life-altering one, leading to feelings of inadequacy and decreased self-confidence. This, in most cases, leads to the haphazard use of cosmetics and medicated ointments. However, only temporary results are usually found and in some cases, the injudicious use of such products may even aggravate the condition.
This brings us to the scope of Homeopathic treatment in such cases. We can confidently say that homeopathic remedies for clear and glowing skin are totally free from any side effects and are extremely effective in treating this problem. The medicines used are all natural and, thus, free from any harmful components. Their selection is based upon the individual constitution of the patient, and success is attained by employing the constitutional remedy internally. No external application is applied or recommended.
As the condition has arisen due to a disturbance in the internal balance of the body and not due to any external factor, the medicine too must work from inside to clear the skin. This result is gained through homeopathic remedies which raise the inner vitality of the person and throw out any noxious agent in the body which may be the cause behind dull and discoloured skin. The result—fair, clear and glowing skin is regained.
