Please take a dose of acid phos 1 m single dose and revert after 2 weeks. Lifestyle changes 1. Along with a healthy hair diet it is important that you exercise properly as it will ensure that there is proper blood flow to your scalp and will help in the growth of hair. 2. Treat your hair delicately. Avoid unnecessary brushing, combing or handling. Use a soft, round bristles brush. 3. Have a weekly scalp massage to provide stimulation to the hair follicles. 4. Have regular trims to eliminate split ends and allow the hair to look and feel healthier. 5. Get plenty of rest and sleep to allow your body to grow hair. Consult me for homeopathic treatment.

All You Need To Know About Keratosis Pilaris

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy
Dermatologist, Panipat
All You Need To Know About Keratosis Pilaris

The skin is the largest organ in the body and is one of the five sense organs, helping us with ‘touch.’ The first outer layer is called the epidermis and the underlying layer is called the dermis. The skin has a protein known as keratin, which protects it from various external toxins and infections.

In some people, due to unknown reasons, there could be pile up of this protein in the deeper layers, producing small bumps, which feel like sandpaper. Literally, the term keratosis pilaris (KP) refers to piling up of keratin pigment. It can block the hair follicle that would normally open into the skin. When there are multiple blocks in the same area, there could be a sandpaper-like rough feeling to the touch. This gives this condition other names including goosebumps, chicken skin or chicken bumps. Though it is a cosmetic issue, it is medically a benign and very common condition.

Cause

KP, as it is popularly known as, is believed to be a genetic disorder with faulty genes leading to excessive accumulation of keratin. These appear as red, small bumps that are usually seen on the hands, arms, thighs, buttocks, and rarely on the face. The surrounding skin may be inflamed if there is a buildup of skin under the pile of keratin.

The onset of KP is usually in the first decade of life, worsens during puberty, and reduces during adulthood. There are, however, instances where the onset happens during adulthood. Twins and people with atopic dermatitis are more likely to have KP.

KP is more common in people with dry skin as oily skin seems to offer some protection.

There are also studies that give it a correlation with weather, with winter seeing more of this condition than summer. This is because our skin tends to dry more in winter than in summer. There could be some people who are completely normal during the summer months but will develop these bumps during the winter, which again subsides with the season.

Signs and Symptoms

As noted above, KP is a medically benign condition. There is a cosmetic concern if it is in the visible areas like arms and hands. Also, the area could feel rough and dry, but the affected person may not experience any itching or other harm. People with atopic dermatitis and eczema are more likely to develop KP; hence these other skin conditions require proper management.

Management

Patient education is the most important. This disease does not require any treatment and is usually self-limiting. It is very rare for KP to affect the whole body. Creams containing alpha hydroxy acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or vitamin A may be required to remove dead skin cells and to prevent clogged follicles from the bodies of the affected people.

. You need to take around 5-6 almonds and soak it overnight. Now take out the skin of the almond with a knife or a sharp substance. Now grind the soaked almond in the morning and add the ingredients like half spoon of honey as well as sandalwood powder. You need to mix them and get a fine paste out of it. This is now ready to be applied over your face and the skin where dark spots have formed and you are willing to remove it entirely. You can remove the paste once the time of 30 minutes is over.

Hair transplant does require care and protection but it is not as risky as you think. Hair transplant cost in india depends upon the methods which are applied to the patients for hair transplant, the area of baldness and the number of grafts. The range is in between 350000 to 80000 rupees. Per graft basis, the cost of transplantation is 25 per graft to 45 per graft.

Hair loss happens due to various reasons and to treat it correctly the cause has to be known. There are temporary and permanent types of bair loss. You can try taking a multivitamin supplement with iron and zinc for a month to see if it helps. If your hair loss doesnt reduce with this you should consult a trichologist for further investigation as early treatment is the key to successful results in hair loss. Hair follicles once damaged or dead are difficult to be revived back so do not waste much time on trying shampoos or oils instead look for internal causes of hair loss. Have a healthy balanced diet and include sprouts, green tea, almonds, walnuts and flaxseeds and leafy greens in your diet. Avoid red meat, ghee, cheese, butter, smoking, fried food and sweets. Exercise regulary to improve the blood circulation to your scalp.

Your excess weight is causing the blackness of your neck, that's what we call acanthosis nigricans in medical terms. You may be having pigmentation on you fore head and cheeks as well. Lose weight under a bariatric physician's (specialist doctor in weight reduction) treatment and supervision. Your neck blackness will reduce automatically.

I have very much hair fall for that I went hospitals but no use tell me that how can I reduce hair fall?
Dear lybrate user, according to ayurveda, when pitta (hot property of the body) increase in the body, it damages the roots of hair and ultimately hair fall starts. For that follow below instructions:- take more and more green leafy vegetables which contains vitamins, minerals, etc and they are easy to digest. Don't eat fast food, junk food, heavy food, oily food, spicy food, fermented food, potato, rice etc. Drink more water at least three litres in a day. Manage the stress and anger. It is the most necessary advice for hair fall. Take enough sleep. Sleep is the main factor for general health. Regular do yoga / pranayam / deep breathing exercise can help you. Walking for an hour 5 days in a week. Shitali and shitkari pranayam can sure help you. Because they increase cold property in the body. Take a glass of milk two times in a day. As milk contains vitamins, minerals etc. Don't use chemical base hair oil and shampoo etc. Always use herbal base hair products. For more details consult me.
