I have small size acne on my back, arms, stomach, chest and hips and also have black scars from the last 6-7 years .i have been taking ayurveda med from the last one month. It reduced my acne but my pigmentation is not going. My doctor also gave me quality-GA for removing scars. What is the best treatment of it?
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.
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.
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
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.
