My hair is falling rapidly, I know it is hereditary. I have so many medicines but nothing happened. What can I do to reduce the falling of my hair??

Say no to chemical treatment of hair. Chemical treatments like relaxers do make curly hair look longer, though they drastically slow down the growth of men’s hair.

Dear sir, Meri Puri body par gaanth ho rhi Hai ,can you please tell the reason for it.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
You seem to be suffering from lipomas which are benign tumors of fat cells. They are harmless but are a cosmetic concern for the patients. There are no medicines or diet management plans that can remove them. The only treatment to get rid of them is to go for surgical excision of these lumps. You can upload picture so that I can have a look at it let you know further. I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to clarify any further doubts.

Dandruff is one of the main cause of hair fall, other includes worry, inadequate sleep, lack of exercise, infection etc. You need a comprehensive treatment like local, internal, exercise and some diet advise, you have to keep the patience as treatment is bit of longer duration, if interested let us know.

Hi, am, 22 years old. I want to grow my mooch & beard. I have little bit hairy in mooch & beard. I shave weekly once. But, it doesn't make a difference.

Beard is purely genetic make up. It could be a pituitary issue, hair follicle or their lack of, or could possible even be genetics. To make hair grow you need to stimulate, moisturize, and cleanse. Use a soft bristle scrub brush for the face and use circular motions using a eucalyptus, menthol, and/or peppermint type cleanser or lotion. The invigoration of the brush and cleanser/moisturizer will wake up that hair follicles and gives them a signal to produce. Make a mixture of Argan oil, Jojoba oil, sesame oil and olive oil and massage your beard and moustache daily to grow and maintain black and smooth hair.

Your skin will be healthy and the face will be bright once you maintain healthy lifestyle and disciplined habits. *. Take nutritious and timely food. *. Avoid fried foods and eat fruits, nuts, pulses, greens, milk and whole grains *. Drinking lots of water is good. Keep hydrated by drinking water and preferring juicy fruits. *. Have timely and adequate sleep. Your body will be fresh after good night sleep. *. Be relaxed and avoid tension *. Daily jogging or such exercise to ensure good blood circulation which helps nutrients reaching the skin and all parts of body. Facial massage will also promote good circulation. *. Don’t expose to hot direct sun. Wear cap, full sleeve shirt and shoes which will protect you from sun. Generally 10 AM to 4 PM is the hottest. Avoid exposure at that time. *. When you apply any cream, sun screen and the like, clean your face at the earliest, so that there will be no adverse action of the chemicals on the delicate skin of face. *For your information, many skin creams (mostly fairness cream brands) are considered harmful and banned by Central Govt, Health ministry during March, 2016. The Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists and Leprologists (IADVL) supported the ban. Your skin ‘breathes’ through its pores which are not to be closed for long. *HOMOEOPATHIC medicines are taken internally. Hence, NO DIRECT CONTACT with your delicate and sensitive skin, thereby no problem of skin allergy *Keep hydrated by drinking water and preferring juicy fruits. Your face will look brighter your dark circles will disappear.

To remove acne Use Tea Tree face wash and Toner twice daily. Use AHA Glow face wash once in a day. Use Sunscreen with SPF 30 daily. Use natural face pack of Multani Mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar for 5 minutes after washing your face and splash it clean with water.

Any weather changes r water, neglecting diet in time or not focussing in taking well nutritious diet, sleeplessness, any stress, dust/pollution exposure etc all may cause sudden rise in falling of hair. Otherwise, any h/o recent sickness also may cause. Try to take well nutritious food, mostly proteinaceous, gentle massaging scalp with herbal oil{homeopathically jaborandi+arnica+cantharis, weisbadan], will help, n take head bath also, with the same kind of herbal based shampoos. Use always soft water for hair wash. Don't comb hair when it's wet, don't use hair dryer also, don't go for any colouring, perming, straightening etc. Take egg, milk, soya in any form, n all fruits. Try to start taking weisbada 200 weekly thrice[6-8 pills], along with r-89 or wl-35 drops.
