Shampoo and oil helps to condition the scalp.Hair has two parts .Hair roots which are situated inside the scalp and hair shaft which is outside portion of hair.Hair roots are getting nutrition through blood.Eat food which is rich in proteins,minerals,and iron.This is going to give nourishment to hair.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you have not mentioned his height and weight to find out what is his bmi. Plus it would have been better if you had mentioned his blood glucose (fbs< pp & hba1c%) and bp readings. If a person is of 60 plus, then eating 1 to 2 roti per meal is absolutely fine, unless a person does strenuous exercise or excess physical activity. Sometimes if bllod glucose is not in proper control there is a possibility of the person feeling hungry all the while. Ideally when in control fbs -should be ccloser to 100 mg, pp between 150 to 160 mg hba1c%<7. And bp 130/30 mm hg. So please come back with those details. Thanks.

Please stop using panderm plus cream as it contains strong steroids which can serious side effects in the long run. Steroid induced acne, photosensitivity, rosacea, atrophy, stretch marks, pigmentation, dryness etc to name a few side effects. Please don't use any such Steroid containing fairness creams. You will require treatment to slowly put you off this cream by using some substitute as the skin becomes addicted to the steroid. Hence you are facing such a problem. Please call me or send photos through online consult option for proper examination and treatment.

For stopping hair fall and increase more hair growth which shampoo I have to use?

MBBS, DNB (Dermatology)

For stopping hair fall and increase more hair growth which shampoo I have to use?
Shampoos work on scalp and the hair shafts. So shampoos would not be able to grow hair. They can cause hair shaft damage. So choose it wisely according to your hair, season and work profile. Do not change them frequently.

Reduced beard growth can be due to causes like Male Hormone Deficiency , Growth hormone deficiency , Growth factor deficiency, Zinc Deficiency, Testosterone biosynthetic defects. Congenital adrenal hyperplasia, Absent development of hair roots, Alopecia universalis , use of certain drugs etc. The first and foremost thing is to identify the cause by taking a detailed history.The treatment consists of hormone therapy which is given in form of oral tablets or injections or local application as androgen cream.Sometimes steroid injections are suffice to stimulate the hair roots to grow.

By lumps if you mean swellings that appear and disappear on their own, it's difficult to comment on what you have unless you get examined by a surgeon when you have these "lumps".

I am having red circle rashes in my inner thighs such as rings and it grows in size. Also the skin of my scrotum has become dried and scaly. What kind of infection I am suffering from? Suggest any medicine plz.

The way you are describing the symptoms, it is fungal infection. You see that the area is kept dry because moisture worsens the situation. Use some antifungal cream. You can use marham qooba (ointment) or safoof qooba (powder) mixed with coconut oil for local application. These are available with hamdard or any unani medicines outlet.

Hello Lybrate user, 1. See whether you have severe dandruff ? if yes do antidandruff treatment your hair fall will stop. If the scalp is itching you actually have dandruff problem. 2. Start with Biotin supplement capsules one every night for 30 days, it helps to reduce hair fall 3. Apply medicated oil (Nilibhringyadi taila, Vatajatadi taila etc. according to your scalp type) trice in a week to the hair, avoid use of chemicals to your hair like gel, colouring, straightening 4. Dont have oily, spicy, salty food, alcohol, nonveg (meat), carbonated drinks as they increase hairfall 5. Do not often be active sexually with your partner or masturbarate as it increases hairfall (Androgenic Alopecea- type of hairfall common in males) 6. Stress can be a reason, dont get angry or anxious too much. 7. Prefer veg diet and fruit juices. 8. Avoid direct sunlight as it increase hairfall. 9. Washing hair properly is very important as use soft towel to dry them , dont harshly treat your hair 10. Do not have bath over hair with high salty level water (water from borewell, hand pumps) 11. See whether your dad or uncle or brother have same hairfall problem as it can be hereditary 12. If you sweat alot it will cause dandruff in hairs so wash them properly with ayurvedic medicated shampoo. 13. If you have chronic acidity, it will require treatment as it increases hairfall rate. Everyone has a growth of hair but when rate of hairfall is double the grow rate then the hair fall is visible. So it is more important to stop the hairfall first then you can concentrate on hair growth. Having the correct food and supplements assure that you have a proper hair growth. 14. The medicines best of Hairfall depends upon them cause of your problem and there is no straight forward medicines in Ayurveda like allopathy any normal medicine may also be useful if the exact cause is known. Ayurvedic treatment is very effective for above problem to know more get in touch with me on Lybrate!

Full hair loss. What should I doo to stop this hair loos. And how to make my hair stronger nd thicker fastly.
Hello, there can be many reasons behind it like *physical or emotional stress, inadequate protein intake, genetics, anemia, aging, hormonal changes, prolonged illness, deficiency of vitamin b6 and folic acid, thyroid diseases. *hair fall can also result when one indulges in too much drying, blow drying or use of hot curlers. *dandruff can also be great cause behind hair fall. Follow the tips *make a habit of 8-10 glasses of water daily. *eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. *eggs as it is loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amount. *add more vitamin rich food to your diet. *avoid stress and anger. *cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. *take a sound sleep. *avoid too much exposure of your hair to sunlight. *avoid hot hair styling tools, as they damage hair and cause split ends. *it is best not to comb the hair while it is wet as this leads to greater chances of hair breakage
