See main reason of hair fall is infection in scalp skin, which easily goes into hair's follicles & causes hair fall, thinning of hairs, for control on hair fall you have to control on dandruff and infection.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

Treatment of Pimples:- Acne/pimples are easily treatable within 7 days to 1 month. Even dark spots would go away themselves within 3-6 months or you may use Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream for 1 month to get rid of black spots once pimples have got cured. Salicylic acid should never be applied on pimples as it being acid would cause damage to nearby skin and may cause scarring and black spots. Acne or Pimples result due to hypersensitive skin, arrested growth of sebaceous glands, high androgen production, high sebum production, frequent blocking of sebaceous glands with subsequent bacterial infection of sebaceous glands. You are producing more androgens but that is good for your sexuality. Excess androgens may cause both hyper-sexuality or night-falls and pimples but we can't give you ant-androgens because they may cause feminization of your body and mentality. Androgens cause more sebum production in sebaceous glands of your skin of face and cause pimples. More sebum production causes oiliness and dust particles stick easily to oily skin closing pores of sebaceous glands and sebum is stuck inside causing enlargement of gland as pimple. If it gets infected, it may develop pus making white heads. Some times skin is very sensitive and applying chemicals or drugs in the form of cosmetics and may result into pimples. In some people, skin growth is slow or arrested along with being oversensitized or associated with high production of androgens. This result into development of reddish pink pimples which grow very slowly but new ones keep on erupting and the whole face is filled with hundreds of reddish pink pimples. In some cases, pimples spread beyond face to neck, shoulder, back and even chest. If you pinch pimples, nearby skin gets damaged and heals by growth of new skin that contains more melanin due to overgrowth of melanocytes resulting into blackish pigmentation with or without scar. For pimples you do following things: Wash your face with mild soap like Lux, Rexona etc 3-4 times in day time, at the time of sleeping, at least once in night if got awaken and just after getting up from sleep. You should keep your face free from oiliness due to sebum on your face. Take AD capsules (containing fat-soluble Vitamin-A) 20 capsule every week. Vitamin A will diminish sebum production and enhance growth of skin and pimples and pimples will be shed off rapidly. (you get a bottle of 1000 AD capsules for around Rs100/-) You can also apply local cream or gel of Adaptalene (marketed by the name of acnelene) on your face. If you apply they refrain from sunlight. Adaptalene is also a retinoid like Vitamin -A. With Vit-A or adaptalene, pimples come outwards rapidly giving impression that problem of pimples is being enhanced. But keep patience. Pimples will shed off within a week. Tretinoin is also used for pimples but don't use it as it causes hyper-pigmentation. If the pimples get infected with pus, take Azithromycin 500 mg on empty stomach once daily for 5-days under medical supervision. Never pinch pimples but let them shed off or fall themselves otherwise blackening will occur and scar may also be formed. Do not apply cosmetics, cleansing lotions, sun-screens, chemical lotions or solutions or medicated soaps to already over-sensitized skin of yours. Use mild soaps like lux, rexona etc or cetrim soap congaing cetrimide. Or you may use besan paste or multani mitti to remove oiliness from face. Take less fats that provides triglycerides in blood which get converted into sebum in sebaceous glands. Take plenty of water to keep you hydrated. Consume green vegetables, salad and fresh seasonal fruits. Consume Green tea regularly. Divert your mind from sexual activities and pornographic literature or wash your face frequently during these activities as these activities increase androgen secretion in body which increase oiliness of face. Take proper and regular sleep in a disciplined life. Remain happy. Get rid of anxiety & tensions. Control your ambitions, envies and jealousies. Do regular morning evening walks and/or exercises. Black spots or pigmentation of acne/pimplea may subside itself within 3-6 months after pimples have cured. You may apply Benoquin (Hydroxyquinone 2%) cream for 1 month to get rid of them. If you have deep scars. You need Scar treatment by creams, laser or plastic cosmetic surgery.

Hello lybrate-user, use biotin based supplements. White Hair or greying hair mainly occurs when your hair follicles stop producing melanin, the pigment that gives hair its color. Though, ageing is the primary reason of grey hair but premature greying of hair in early 20’s or 30’s is now common. Genetic factors, stress, lack of nutrition, chemicals, smoking or any underlying disease like thyroid or anemia can also lead to premature greying of hair. All these factors lead to underproduction or zero production of melanin that leads to grey or white hair. Lack of minerals like zinc, copper is one of the most underestimated yet one of the most analysed reason of grey hair. Turning already grey hair into black is not possible, but you can always control further greying of hair. A balanced diet is the most effective solution to control greying of hair. Include lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, protein rich sources of food in your diet. Load up on food items containing antioxidant and vitamin C like gooseberry, oranges, lemon etc. Try to stay stress free, limit your on-screen time, do exercises and yoga that will increase oxygen in your body and hair. Some cost effective hair care tips at home can also give you wonderful hair and prevent further greying - Give warm oil massage to your hair with different oils like sesame, olive oil, castor oil. Put protein rich hair packs made of egg. If you want to stay chemical free than you can try some natural conditioners like thyme, rosemary tea, chamomile tea or sage tea to rinse your hair post hair wash. Start a good hair regimen by selecting right shampoo and conditioners. A professional hair and scalp analysis to get right hair care products for you is worth than spending time and energy on wrong products. Make a visit to your nearest dermatologist soon to get head turning hair.

Foods Helpful In Accelerating Hair Growth

Spinach: spinach is a great source of iron, vitamin a and c and protein. Iron deficiency is the main cause of hair fall and spinach is not only iron-rich, it also contains sebum which acts as a natural conditioner for hair. It also provides us with omega-3 acid, magnesium, potassium, calcium and iron. These help in maintaining a healthy scalp and lustrous hair.

Carrots and sweet potatoes: sneak carrots in your diet for those long and lustrous locks. Carrots and sweet potatoes contain beta -carotene that also improves hair growth a deficiency of vitamin a may lead to dry and itchy scalp.
Eggs and dairy products: milk, yogurt, cheese, eggs etc. Are loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids. Dairy products are also a great source of biotin (vitamin b7) that is known to fight hair loss.
 
Oats: include a big bowl of oats in your morning meal to bid goodbye to hair fall. Oats are rich in fibre, zinc, iron, omega-6 fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids (pufas) that stimulate hair growth and will make your hair thick and healthy.
 
Walnuts: add walnuts to your diet to prevent hair loss. It is the only known nut to contain biotin, b vitamins (b1, b6 and b9), vitamin e, plenty of protein and magnesium, all of which strengthen hair cuticles and nourish the scalp

Lentils: lentils are loaded with protein, iron, zinc, and biotin. Besides this, lentils are full of folic acid which is necessary for restoring the health of red blood cells that supply skin and scalp with the much-needed oxygen.
 
Strawberry: strawberries contain high levels of silica. Silica is a trace mineral vital for hair strength and hair growth. Other silica rich foods include rice, oats, onion, cabbage, cucumber and cauliflower.

Yogurt: yogurt is packed with vitamin b5 and vitamin d that are known to promote hair follicle health. Alternatively, you can also use yogurt to make a hair mask every once in a while.
 
Foods rich in vitamin-c: vitamin c supports the absorption of iron in our body, the deficiency of which may lead to hair loss. Vitamin c is also known for its antioxidant properties which reduces the damage caused by free radicals that may make your hair brittle and weak. Add fruits like oranges, papaya, blueberries, lime and kiwi to your diet. Vitamin c also helps in the production of an essential protein called collagen which strengthens blood vessels that supports the hair shafts.

Topical treatments for psoriasis include: Salicylic acid. Some doctors recommend salicylic acid ointment, which smoothes the skin by promoting the shedding of psoriatic scales. Using salicylic acid over large areas of skin, however, may cause the body to absorb too much of the medication, leading to side effects.

Coconut milk is among the richest sources of tissue-nourishing, plant derivatives. Grind the grated coconut and squeeze it to remove its juice. Massaging coconut milk (juice) on the scalp can also help in the management of hair fall.

You will require a lip reduction surgery where the excess tissue will be removed. However in conditions like a condition called mucocele there might be recurrence and repeat surgery may be required.

Premature greying of hair is greying before the age of 30 years and after that it is natural physiological process. Nutritional deficiency, stress, thyroid problem, not conditioning the scalp can cause greying of hair. It is important to check extent of greying and condition of hair follicle. Pigment melanin is produced by melanocytes under the influence of amino acid. Amino acid is derivative of protein. Sprouts, beans, nuts are excellent source of protein. Green leafy vegetables are good source of iron. Oil the scalp 3/week and wash it 3/week. Consult trichologist.

Use potato for Black spots

Use potato for Black spots
Potato is a vegetable that grows under the ground and is the most commonly used food item in making curries. Since you can get potato easily at home, it will be easier for you to make a paste with potato or simply apply the slice over the dark spotted skin layer. One of the ways of applying potato over your skin will be washing the face with luke warm water at first and then apply the slice of potato rubbing over it. Then leave it for 10 minutes and them remove it with luke warm water.

There is also another way of applying the potato over your skin. You need to make a pulp by grating a medium sized potato and add few spoons of honey in it. Mix them and apply it over your face. This will be much more effective in removing the dark spots and blackish skin tone easily.
