Hello, from what I am gathering from the information that you have provided is that you have small blood vessels and increased blood circulation around the eyes which give the look of a circle around the eyes along with puffiness. The best way to get rid of those veins is to laser therapy. Laser therapy along with some skin strengthening creams applied in that area will help you improve the appearance of the skin around your eyes.

I'm having severe hair fall since 2 years unable to control it. Can I have any suggestions to control it effectively?
I hope this message finds you in good health. To prevent hair fall, you can follow some simple steps as listed below: 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, yogurt 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.

itchy scalp might be due to dandruff or any skin infection/skin disease. plz consult once in detail for this complaint , till follow these things. A person loses about 50 to 100 hairs on an average every day. Some people lose much more than that, leading to thinning of hair. This lowers the self esteem and perceived attractiveness of the person. Fortunately, hair loss can be arrested and the earlier it is done, better is the outcome. If hair loss is in excess, then there is a chance to become bald, which can lower down your confidence, but no need to worry as hair transplantation is a permanent solution for baldness. Coconut oil helps eliminate dandruff due to its antifungal properties. It also moisturizes dry scalp and provides relief from itching. 1. Take some coconut oil and mix half the amount of lemon juice in it. 2. Rub it on your scalp and massage for a few minutes. 3. Wash your hair after at least 20 minutes. 4. Follow this remedy two to three times a week. Unhealthy hair habits can cause hair loss. Common culprits for thinning of hair are: 1)Brushing vigorously:- Brushing your hair aggressively puts a lot of pressure on the hair fiber, causing the cuticle to flake and fall away. Combing wet hair is not advisable as it can cause excessive pulling and breakage. 2)Tight ponytails and braids:- Tying your hair in tight ponytails and braids can lead to thinner hair as these techniques cause hair traction. Due to traction large amount of hair gets damaged and may fall out. Sometimes the damages caused by hair traction are permanent. 3) Unbalanced diet:- Well balanced and nourished diet promotes healthy hair. Protein repairs, strengthens and boosts cell growth. Iron and zinc aids in the growth of follicles. Eggs provide supplement to the hair as they are rich in protein and B vitamins which are necessary for growth. Plz follow above mentioned things as much as possible. Take these primary medicines to reduce dandruff and hairfall. 1)Lakshadi guggulu 500 mg twice day 2)Gandhak Rasayan vati500 mg twice day 3) bhrungraj vati 500mg twice day. Take medicines for 30 days, and stop use of market shampoo and conditioner. Instead use shikekai powder+ trifala powder for washing of hairs.(it gives very elegant result as compared to products you are using ). It will reude your hairfall and hairs will be thick, black and silky. Hope this answers your query. Feel free to consult privately for further information and treatment guidelines. Thank you.

For hair fall solution, we have to stop causative factors like improper diet acidity & gas more exposure to sun spicey sour n salty food to much curd day sleep lack of vitamins & other nutrients anger & stress due to previous illness here your medication is also one of reason etc. 1st try to avoid these factors use cow ghee & milk in diet avoid sour buttermilk & curd use trichup shampoos & medicated oil like keshraksha or nilibhrungadi tail must do oil massage in head for thick hair avoid direct sun & air take proper diet we generally start 3 treatment together 1. Medicine for root cause & hair tonic 2. Shirodhara with medicated oil 3. Nashya tretment.

- do not scratch or squeeze the lesions - do not apply creams or oils on face - do not apply hair oils or wash oil within 1 hour of application - take plenty of fluids - wash your face 2-3 times daily especially when it's oily - certain foods can increase acne such as chocolates, oily food etc, avoid these if they increase acne - take plenty of fluids and fruits - dandruff can also increase acne, so use anti-dandruff shampoo if you have acne. - also, for the marks, try to avoid sunexposure as far as possible (use broadspectrum gel based sunscreen, cover the face while outside during sunlight hours)

Causes:: Genetic factors, family history, overall aging process, normal life variations including temporary severe stress, illness, nutritional changes, hormonal changes like those in pregnancy, puberty, and menopause may cause a reversible hair loss. 1. Chop some onions (pyaz) into fine pieces and squeeze out the juice. Apply this to hair and scalp and leave it for 15 minutes. Rinse it with shampoo. 2. Crush a few cloves of garlic (lehsun), add in a little coconut oil and boil for a few minutes. Cool it till it becomes warm and apply it on the scalp with a little massaging action. Repeat two to three times a week for best results. 3. Take coconut milk and add a little water to it. Apply this to the scalp and allow it to stay overnight. Rinse this the next morning. 4. Add two teaspoons of amla juice/ powder and mix with equal quantity of freshly squeezed lime juice. Mix well, apply to the scalp and leave it to dry; then rinse using warm water. 5. Take some flowers of rose (gulab) add some water to it and make a paste. Apply it on hair and keep it for an hour and then wash the hair. 6. Take 2 tab amla twice daily with water.

Mix required amounts of gram flour, lemon juice and curd or yogurt. Apply this paste on tan affected area of forehead and face. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash it with water. This is an exclusive face pack prepared at home to remove tan from your skin in a very easy and effective way. A mixture of egg white, milk cream and honey works excellent against skin tanning.

For acne do the following: wash your face 5-6 times daily. Take one cup of spinach juice every day. If you can, eat only fruits and fruit juices for three days. Apply steam on your face. Do some exercise for 20 mins to 30 mins, which will cause heavy sweating on the entire body. These will remove pimples from his face in less than two months. Also remember no lotion, cream or medicine can actually remove them permanently.
