Don't worry. Hair loss and dandruff can be controlled by - 1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your shampoo with reetha at home) 2. Stop using conditioners 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 6. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 7. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain ph balance of your hair. 8. Make sure your diet has lots of proteins, vitamins and minerals 9. Drink plenty of water everyday.

Hi Doctor, I am 32 years male, and I am not used to Allopathy medicines as some of them cause severe allergies and from childhood I am relying on homeopathy medicines. However it is very hard to find good homeopathy doctors for all the problems. My issue is recently I have developed multiple problems and for long time I have been ignoring them as I do not want to go for allopathy at the same time I was under impression that they might go away by themselves. My right arm has developed a patch and hairs from that area are gone. I am trying a gel which is bringing them back but at an extremely slow pace. And suddenly I have also developed pain in the index finger of my lest hand. The pain is not severe until the finger gets inclined at a mild pressure from one of the sides. After few weeks I suddenly developed pain in my left feet. It was so severe for first few days that even a mild touch by my finger caused pain but its better now but not going away. Or may be I am now habitual with it. The worst part is now I have difficulty in Urination and also weight loss. I am an engineer and I use a lot of computers, zero exercise except walking and climbing stairs. Kindly let me know if homeopathy has a good treatment to cure above problems. Incase an appointment is required before diagnosing I will be more than happy to attend. But I am really looking for a good advice and doctor who can understand or help identifying the root problem and help me eliminate it and get back a normal life. Thanks a lot! Rv.

I am 32 years old past 5 five years having hair fall problem. How prevent to stop.

General Physician, Kolkata
I am 32 years old past 5 five years having hair fall problem. How prevent to stop.
Hair growth occurs in 3 phases and hairfall is also one of the phase of it. But a prolonged hairfall of 5 years is really disturbing. I would like to ask you that how much on an average do you have hairfall? Because a loss of approx 100 hair/day is being considered normal. Hairfall can be because of lot of causes. Due to pollution, dust, shampoo chemicals, etc. Or it. Can be because of some disease. Disease of the scalp (hair) or other general problems of the body like stress, anemia, thyroid disorders, etc. You should consult a dermatologist. Meanwhile, you can have a blood test for haemoglobin and thyroid profile. Apply ketomac shampoo twice a week. Hope that helps.

Hello good morning doctor. My problem is how to get rid of pimples and some spots on my face please help me.
Please use Tea tree oil which is excellent for treating acne and pimples. It has antibacterial properties that help fight the bacteria that cause these skin problems. Plus, its soothing properties help reduce the redness and inflammation of pimples. It also helps dry out blackheads and whiteheads. • Just dip a cotton ball in tea tree essential oil and dab it on the affected area. Rinse your face after 15 to 20 minutes. Note: Steer clear of tea tree oil if you have sensitive skin. If you would like to consult with me privately, please click on 'Consult'. recommend me by clicking on recommendation option.

Coconut milk is among the richest sources of tissue-nourishing, plant derivatives. It is an excellent home remedy for keeping the hair soft without depending upon chemical formulations and regenerating dead hair follicles. You can also use a concoction of coconut oil mixed with half the amount of Amla oil. Just add a dash of lemon juice to this mixture and you have an effective, dandruff-fighting and scalp-healing concoction that arrests receding hairline.

I am suffering from JOCK ITCHING. Can you please advise any Cream / Home Remedy / Medications to get rid of it . Thanks in advance for help.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello jock itch is a fungal infection of the skin which usually affects the parts of the body which are moist and warm. It usually affects buttocks, groins, inner thighs and genitals. It is more common in men, especially athletes. It can also affect overweight people because they sweat more. The symptoms of jock itch may include itchiness, rash, redness, patches in a shape of a ring and peeling of the skin. You may also feel warmth or burning sensation on the affected skin. Jock itch is not considered to be dangerous condition, but it is unpleasant and bothersome. It is also contagious, so proper treatment is recommended. Take sulphur 30 ch, 3 drops, once daily in the morning and apply topi sulphur on the affected areas. Revert me after 10 days.

Dark circle under eyss is a symptom of udavarta (improper functions of all vaat). It's mainly due to 1) dharniya vega (urges, should b controlled, but you aren't) like chinta-stress, bhaya-fear, shoka-, krodha-short temper, maan- ego, lobha-greedy etc mental condition you should control yourself 2) adharniya vega (urges that should not be controlled, but you are controling) like sleep, urine, stool, hunger, thirst, yawn, sneeze, vomit etc. Think deeply. It's a very spiritual concept main treatment is to stop causative factor among this. So manage your sleep & time. Also there are some ayurveda medicine, lepa-cream, face treatment, or panchakarma (detoxification) will definitely help you you can use kumkumadi ointment of nagarjun pharma. It will lighten your circle.
