It may be fungal infection due to humid and wet climate. Wear loose and cotton clothes. Keep the private parts dry. Change underclothes regularly use ironed cloths, apply oil after bath. Take anti fungal treatment. For professional advice please consult privately.

I live in Ooty Tamil Nadu. I had recently had a small wound at the back of my right foot,(a little above the heel), apparently caused due to a shoe bite. I have no problems while walking, but seem to be having pain either while sitting or lying down. I had consulted a general physician, here, who had prescribed tablets for the pain to subside. It has been about 10 days, but the pain still continues, while walking. I have now been asked to consult a surgeon for his opinion. I'm concerned as to what might be the problem. Is there chances for any growth in the wound itself, that might need to be surgically removed? Thanks in Advance.

Natural remedies/Home tips for Unwanted Facial Hair:
1.Lemon juice is a natural bleaching agent. Mix gram pulse flour (besan), wheat flour, milk cream, a few drops of fresh lemon juice, mustard oil and water together. Rub this paste in circular movements and wash it off. Do it regularly. Start this treatment from an early age as hair is soft and fine at that time.
2.Mix sugar, water and lemon juice to a thick paste. Apply it and wash it off when it dries. Do this once a week to prevent hair growth.
3.Mix 2 tsp of barley powder with little milk, few drops of fresh lemon juice and make a paste. Apply it on your face, remain for 15 minutes and wash it off with warm water. If done regularly, you can get of fine facial hair.
4.Take equal quantities of moong dal powder, neem leaves powder, kasturi manjal powder and few kuppai meni leaves. Grind it to a paste with very less water. Apply on skin and leave it to dry. After 15-20 minutes, scrub your face gently in the direction of hair growth to remove unwanted fine hair.
These natural remedies, if followed regularly, discourage hair growth over a period of time. It also helps to get rid of very fine facial hair on upper lips and chin.
Electrolysis and laser treatment are also effective ways to remove hair and reduce hair growth but should be done by licensed professionals in that field.

Sea Vegetables - If you have a thyroid issue sea vegetables are highly recommended for an underactive thyroid. An underactive thyroid can cause thinning of the hair and even the eyebrows. These sea vegetables include kelp, nori, and dulse (see the link below for the amazing health benefits of sea vegetables, also known as seaweed). If you east sushi it is often wrapped with nori. It is also sold in dried forms and can easily be sprinkled over foods. Add them several times per week. They are also sold in supplement form.

I am 22 years boy. My lips are becoming dry in all seasons and cracks are also forming. Moreover my lips are black in colour. What should I do to overcome this problem.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu can apply ghee or coconut oil to make the lip smooth and not dry . Sugar Scrub: This natural scrub works as an excellent lips exfoliant. Whereas the sugar helps in getting rid of unwanted dead skin cells present on your lips, the butter helps to improve the color and enhance gloss on your lips. Make a thick paste by mixing three spoons of sugar powder with two spoons of butter. Use this mixture as a scrub over your lips. Try this natural beauty tip two to three times a week to get lighter lips.

Hello lybrate-user, the question you have asked is somewhat like this:- in colgate and pepsodent, which one is better? you know the answer, both are multinational companies, which are selling their products in the market. Instead of purchasing a shampoo, better consult an ayurveda doctor for the same. Get amla powder + mehndi powder (herb, not the chemical which you get in market)+ bhringraj powder mix them in equal quantity and heat them adding water in a iron vessel (kadahi), apply the paste after cooling it for few minutes. Keep it for 1 hour, then wash with plain water. Can contact me further for more details.

If you want to recover, the following information can prove vital: • How often do you masturbate? • How severe is your current hair loss? Do you experience any health conditions that could cause hair loss? • Do you take any medications? • What does your diet consist of?
