I am suffering from pimples on my face from last 2 years I using a cream name neo clobenate gm.

I am suffering from pimples on my face from last 2 years I using a cream name neo clobenate gm.
Dear Lybrate User, **Avoid more salty, dry, maida related junk foods, more tea, coffee. *Consume more fresh fruit juice. *Practice yoga, meditation, breathing exercise. *To avoid having pimples it is not just necessary to keep your face oil free but your hair shall also not be oily. Leaving overnight oil on your hair can cause pimples as the hair touching your face will make your skin oily. Wash your hair regularly and don’t let them fall on your face. Also go easy on products like hair gels, fragrances and deodorants as they can clog up the skin pores leading to pimples. *Siting an unpleasant pimple makes us want to pop it immediately to get rid of it. But touching and popping pimples can only accentuate the problem. Don’t let your hands touch your face very often. It can spread bacteria, cause infections or further more pimples which you certainly don’t want.

I'm suffering from hairfall 1 year. what to do?

BHMS
Homeopath,
I'm suffering from hairfall 1 year. what to do?
Hi. Let me you about hairfall. We can divide hairfall into 2 types - temporary hairfall and permanent which is called 'Hairloss' rather and leads to bald areas of smooth and shiny surface. In temporary hairfall, hair grows back again from the same hair root, but in case of permanent hairloss, because of formation of DHT (Di- Hydro -Testosterone) around hair root it gets choked up which subsequently affects the blood supply to the hair and thus hair root is lost forever. Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or hairloss- hereditary, post-illness/ ailment, post-delivery, post- chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, hormaonal imbalance, insufficient sleep, sudden loss of weight, stress/ tensions/ excessive anger any other underlying diseases, etc. Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs, pulses, legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnut and almonds), iron-rich food like green vegetables, also take flaxseeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smooking 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). Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga/ gym teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Also, take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200/ twice a day for 1 month and revert me back.

Drink 1-2 ltr water daily... 1. First soak your feet in soapy water and scrub your feet with a pumice stone. 2. Wash your feet and then dry them thoroughly 3. Apply olive oil liberally on your heels and soles. 4. Put on a pair of clean socks and leave them on overnight while you sleep.In the morning, your heels will be noticeably softer. 5. Repeat this for a few days until the cracks in your heels are gone completely.

Was is the symptoms of hair loss and how to prevent loss please tell me I am worried about.

Trichologist
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Was is the symptoms of hair loss and how to prevent loss please tell me I am worried about.
Hair growth and the fall ratio is 80: 20. Always 20 % of hair are in fall phase. We have 1, 50, 000 hair all over the scalp. So loosing 50 to 100 strands of hair while oiling, washing and combing is normal. If the hair comes out even on slightest touch then it is considered as hair fall. If hair fall is since long, then it is important to check signs of thinning as hair fall can be initial sign of thinning. Consult trichologist.

You can always grow new hairs. You can use brahmi and jaborandi mother tinctures and arnica mother tinctures. Mix them together and apply it with oil. If there is no improvement even after 3. Months you can take homeopathy.

What should I have to do to remove acne pimples on my back? Mine back is filled with small pimples.

What should I have to do to remove acne pimples on my back? Mine back is filled with small pimples.
Do let me know if you also have blackheads with pimples? 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 or any self prescribed preparations on scars or pimples. 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.

Firstly start taking a full nutritious diet . A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. A good diet must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health.And what ever we are eating that reflects on our body and skin. 1. Homoeopathic medicine for fair skin is Berberis Aquafolium mother tincture.take 5 drops of it mix with water , twice a day. 2. Apply this tincture in diluted form on your face with cotton once a day . 3. wash your face with besan and curd , mix a pinch of turmeric also. 4. Apply Bio valley's skin lightening cream 5. Apply rose water to your face at night. 6. Apply cucumber juice+ lemon juice+ tomato juice on your back and neck. 7.Apply Multani mitti pack on the face,wash it off after it dries.

I have been suffering from Neurofibromatosis for the last 5 years . The frequent has been increasing month to month.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
I have been suffering from Neurofibromatosis for the last 5 years . The frequent has been increasing month to month.
If you would have presented to me as an outpatient, I would have told that there is no cure for neurofibromatosis and the management is mainly symptomatic. The outlines of management are: 1) tumors can be removed surgically or small ones with laser-for neurological or cosmetic indications. All tumors are not to be removed, like the ones which are attached to such crucial structures which pose a risk to be damaged if the tumor is removed, then such tumors are not removed by the surgeons. 2) chemotherapy can be given in case of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (this has been a debatable issue). 3) laser therapy-i already told, can be used to remove small tumors. It is also used for cutaneous hyperpigmented lesions like port-wine stain. It is not successful for cafe-au-lait spots, however. 4) blood pressure should be monitored and managed as there is high propensity of hypertension due to pheochromocytoma. Pheochromocytoma if present, can be surgically resected. 5) bony abnormalities like scoliosis, pseudoarthrosis may need surgery. Physical rehabilitation measures like braces are also used. 6) periodic eye checkups for associated complications.

Always used Indus valley daily shampoo . It contains alovera also. Its ph level is 5.5. It helps to remove danduruf, itch, and dryness at sourse it increase scalp’s natural resistance and strength hair from root to top and hair become soft and silky. Avoid cosmetic shampoos.
