Yes. It could be piles. More likely it would be a fissure. Drink lots of water and have significant amount of fiber in your diet. Make it a habit.

Maintain proper posture and proper distance from your computer. You need to take eyes relaxation therapies. I will suggest you one. Take triphla churan dip it in water over night and filter the water. Irrigate your eyes with that water daily.

Hello 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. 5. Apply rose water to your face at night. 6. Apply cucumber juice+ lemon juice+ tomato juice on your face. 7. Apply multani mitti pack on the face, wash it off after it dries.

There are powerful homemade treatments used to remove accident scars naturally without causing any side effects to the skin. 1. mix curd or frozen milk and turmeric. Frozen milk is a good exfoliating agent and it nourishes your skin and leaves your skin glowing once you wash off the paste. If you have a sensitive skin then you can add a few drops of lemon juice and rose water. Facial scars from accidents can be easily removed by using the above mentioned natural home remedies. 2. you can also use the one part of baking soda with two part of water to create a paste. Baking soda is a natural exfoliator and helps in the gentle scraping of the scar tissue layer by layer. Scrub (avoid vigorous rubbing) this paste on your scars for a minute or two and after that you can rinse it off with cold water. 3. Mint juice is also effective to remove old accident scars. You can use the juice of mint on your face leave it for 5 minutes and wash that off. If you are doing the same procedure for a month then you can see visible results. The old accident scars will become lighter in color on regular usage. It is a good practice to apply vitamin E oil on car accident facial scars to fade out spots and scars. Use it before going to sleep every day.

I am male 22. I am suffering from back pain from many days, the pain is allover the back middle, upper,shoulder blades. I also have pain on the lower part of the right rib but sometimes pain spreads to lower part of the left rib as well. I also feel that something is stuck in my throat. Few months back I was diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease. Sometimes I also feel chest pain, heartburn and acid via food pipe. Whenever I rest laying straight the pain increases and lastly the pain gets worse after eating something. I was wondering if all these symptoms including back and rib pain are because of GERD .please help.

My wife diagnosed with lichen planus. She is being medicated for various skin specialist but there is not any relief yet. In summer lot of skin itching takes place in leg and under arm. There is now mark for itching. Pl suggest permanent solution.

There is no quick cure for lichen planus. However, it is likely to clear in time. Treatment aims to relieve itching and improve the appearance of the rash until it goes away. No treatment - is an option if symptoms are mild. Antihistamine medicines - may help to ease the itch. An antihistamine that makes you sleepy, taken at bedtime, may help you to sleep if the itch keeps you awake at night. Emollients - are often also given to provide moisture to your skin. These can also help to reduce the itching. A steroid cream or ointment - is commonly advised. Steroids reduce inflammation. The effect of steroid creams and ointments is variable. They work in many cases to ease itch but may not actually clear the rash. Steroid pastes or mouth washes - may help to ease painful mouth ulcers. A course of steroid tablets - may be advised if lichen planus is severe. This may clear, or greatly reduce, the rash. Steroid tablets taken for longer than a few weeks are not usually advised due to possible side-effects. Therefore, the rash may reappear after the tablets are stopped. However, a course of steroid tablets may help to tide you over a particularly bad spell. Immune modulators - such as imiquimod and levamisole may be advised by a specialist if lichen planus is severe. These work with the body's immune system to help fight damage to the skin. Skin irritation, headache, nausea and tiredness can be side-effects. Puva - this is a special light therapy that may be advised by a skin specialist if you have extensive and severe lichen plants. Laser treatment - low-dose lasers are sometimes used to treat lichen planus in the mouth. In general outlook is good as it is most of the times self limiting and goes away with time in around 6 months to 2 years.

Is the faiza cream useful for Whitening the face. My face is getting darker than my body. I have oily skin?

Dark circles can be really troublesome. They may be genetic or due to nutritional, lifestyle and stress factors. Eat lot of fruits, keep hydrated, sleep for 6-8 hours daily at schedule and exercise. Skin lightening creams, Peels and electroporation, RF or ultrasound can help but you need to take 8-10 sessions weekly or fortnightly.

Hirsuties coronae glandis (also known as "hirsutoid papillomas" and "pearly penile papules") are small protuberances that may form on the ridge of the glans of the human penis. They are a harmless anatomical variation. Homoeopathic constitutional treatment does miracles when given in small dose but the medicine should be  selected based on constitution and detailed  symptomatology You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

1. Prevent baths and showers from making dry skin worse. When your skin is dry, be sure to: Close the bathroom door Limit your time in the shower or bath to 5 or 10 minutesUse warm rather than hot water Wash with a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser Apply enough cleanser to remove dirt and oil, but avoid using so much that you see a thick latherBlot your skin gently dry with a towelSlather on the moisturizer immediately after drying your skin 2. Apply moisturizer immediately after washing. Ointments, creams, and lotions (moisturizers) work by trapping existing moisture in your skin. To trap this much-needed moisture, you need to apply a moisturizer within few minutes of: Drying off after a shower or bathWashing your face or hands 3. Use an ointment or cream rather than a lotion. Ointments and creams are more effective and less irritating than lotions. Look for a cream or ointment that contains an oil such as olive oil or jojoba oil. Shea butter also works well. Other ingredients that help to soothe dry skin include lactic acid, urea, hyaluronic acid, dimethicone, glycerin, lanolin, mineral oil, and petrolatum. 4. Choose non-irritating clothes and laundry detergent. When our skin is dry and raw even clothes and laundry detergent can be irritating. To avoid this: Wear cotton or silk under your clothing made of wool or another material that feels roughUse laundry detergent labeled “hypoallergenic”8. Stay warm without cozying up to a fireplace or other heat source. Sitting in front of an open flame or other heat source can dry your skin.  5. Add moisture to the air. Plug in a humidifier. If you can check your home heating system, find out if you have a humidifier on the system — and whether it’s working.

Itching may be due to irritants over the skin surface. Avoid dust and other air borne particles. Bath with an antiseptic solution and use scrub to rub your skin. Take steam bath. Apply mustard oil and stay in the morning sun around 7 am for 30 min. Drink lots of water, exercise daily.
