My son has pityriasis rosea he is very young and cannot be given heavy dose of medicines. Are there any home remedies or lotion which be used to get rid of herald patches over his back.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
My son has pityriasis rosea he is very young and cannot be given heavy dose of medicines. Are there any home remedies...
Typically, pityriasis rosea will usually clear on its own within 6-8 weeks without medical intervention. The most common symptom is itching, which can be treated with topical steroid creams (like hydrocortisone cream) and oral antihistamines (like diphenhydramine [Benadryl], loratadine [Claritin], etc.). Neem is the easiest and most cost effective remedy for pityriasis rosea. It does not cost too much effort too. Boil one bucket of water and add a sheaf of neem leaves to it. Boil for seven minutes then allow the water to cool. Bathe with this water everyday. Neem has superb anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antifungal properties.These properties will not only eradicate the infection but will also alleviate the itching. Within a short time, the patches will begin to fade and disappear.Coconut Oil To get relief from the itching and burning it is necessary to keep the skin calm and well moisturized. Take some pure coconut oil and rub it generously, all over the patches. Keep massaging for ten minutes so that the skin can absorb the oil.Oatmeal has been used since centuries for healing and curing all kinds of skin diseases and disorders. Cook some oatmeal in enough water so that you can get a thick and mushy consistency.Cool the cooked oatmeal and lather it well all over the patches. Let it dry on the skin. It will flake off on its own. Oatmeal will heal the skin rashes and provide tremendous relief in the itching. Remove the gel from a fresh aloe vera leaf and rub it three or four times a day, all over the affected parts. Aloe vera will soothe the itching and will also combat the virus and any other infection as well.

These are the methods to treat pimples fastly - • Do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste & apply on the pimples three times a week. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day.

and also to increase hair growth.
I don't believe that using these oils are good enough to treat dandruff , and hair falling.. You should think of using homeopathic medicines... Try Arnica Shampoo and oil by B&T Schwabe (homeopathic Medicne).

1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home) 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yougurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 9. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. Eat things rich in vitamin c like amla and oranges. 10. Drink lots of water to flush out toxins from the body.

Papaya fruit contains the enzyme papain. Papain helps exfoliate the skin, making way for new skin cells to emerge. Papaya also contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E, so it's a dark spot fading superstar. Papain is most concentrated while the papaya is still green, but you can use riper fruit as well. Peel and remove the seeds from a papaya, and try one of the following treatments: 1. Slice a piece off of the papaya, and lay or hold it on the dark spots that you want to get rid of. Hold it there for 20-30 minutes. Repeat twice a day for best results. 2.Make a papaya facial mask. Cut the papaya into chunks, then use a blender or food processor to blend the fruit into a smooth paste. Apply the mask to your face and neck. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, then rinse well.

I have white hair at the age of 18. kindly help me?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
I have white hair at the age of 18. kindly help me?
Our hair determines our overall appearance in a major way. Long, black and shiny hair is often looked upon with admiration. In fact, in the present scenario, we leave no stone unturned to rid ourselves of various hair problems which we tend to face every day. Whitening or greying of hair is one such common problem. High levels of stress: the modern life along with its comforts brings a lot of stress and tension, whether it is work related or personal. The ultimate outcome is the occurrence of white hair. Genetics: the age at which your hair starts turning white is also determined by your genetics to a great extent. Thus, if your parents or grandparents suffered from premature greying of hair, then you are most likely to suffer from the same problem improper diet: a balanced diet plays an important role in maintaining the health of your body which includes your hair as well. Lack of vitamin b12 is the most common cause of white hair. Thus, to combat this problem it is advisable to increase the consumption of food rich in vitamin b12 such as tuna, sardines, salmon, beef, egg, lamb, cheese and milk emotional shock: sometimes, white hair occurs during a patch of time when a person is undergoing an emotional shock or turmoil. This is a temporary phenomenon and the growth of white hair automatically ceases after sometime. White hair treatment walk barefoot: morning walk is great for our overall health and benefits our hair as well. Walking barefoot on wet grass early in the morning prevents the occurrence of white hair. Eat more iodine rich foods: food rich in iodine help in preventing grey hair. Fish has a high content of iodine. In addition to this, bananas and carrot also contain some iodine. You can replace the sea salt or kosher salt with iodized table salt to increase your iodine intake treatment consult or ask privetly.

Ayurveda,

Eat healthy. That is the magic mantra to treat hair fall. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits like almonds, dates and raisins will help prevent and treat hair fall. Please check to see if you have dandruff. If present treat that first. Warm oil is a great way to treat hair fall. Warm coconut oil and a few drops of lemon, mix, apply on to the scalp, massage it in lightly and wash it after an hour. This works. Do this on alternate days for a month and your problem is solved. If however your problem persists, then please do consult. You may need some internal medications too.

I am waxed with pimples and spots on my face. How can I reduce them naturally without any creams?

BHMS
Homeopath,
I am waxed with pimples and spots on my face. How can I reduce them naturally without any creams?
Dear lybrate user, pimples/ acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which develops due to blocking of the hair follicles in skin. These blockages occur due to 4 abnormal processes: 1) excess sebum production due to androgens 2) excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedone formation 3) infection of propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes) bacteria on the hair follicles 4) local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. In order to stop the formation of pimples the aforesaid four causes should be terminated. Now the bitter truth is neither can you stop the overproduction of androgen or keratin protein nor can you stop the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals because all these processes takes place internally in your skin. However you can stop the accumulation of p. Acnes bacteria on your skin by preventing your skin from getting oily. Always keep a handkerchief with you whenever you go outside. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink a lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation. You can also take homoeopathic calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach also you can apply homoeopathic mother tincture berberis aquifolium q on the dark spots on your skin which are produced after the resolution of the pimples. Kindly note that this medication may not be sufficient enough to take care of your problem. These medicines may need to be complemented by further deep-acting remedies in order to permanently eliminate the underlying cause of the disease. So I would suggest you to consult me privately via lybrate as it is very necessary to diagnose the proper underlying cause of your problem if you are wishing for a permanent relief from your problems. A permanent annihilation of the underlying cause of the disease will not only provide you relief from your troubles but it will also cease any chance of further relapse of that particular disease condition.
