Sir my skin having fungle infection. Please suggest me how to cure my skin by infection.
Hello, ringworm is caused by a fungus that grows on the skin. Once the fungus is established, it spreads out in rings. The centre of the ring may clear up, while a new ring of infection develops at the edge of the old ring. Fungi are microscopic organisms that can live off the dead tissues of your skin, hair, and nails, much like a mushroom can grow on the bark of a tree. Medication: take schwabe's tellurium 30/ thrice daily for 2 weeks. Management: good personal hygiene helps prevent the spread of ringworm. Teach your child to practice good hygiene and generally not to share combs, brushes, or hats. Children also shouldn't share towels, clothes, or sports equipment that haven't been properly cleaned. Avoid wearing any wet clothes, prefer cotton clothes, keep the area dry and clean. Never use others towels or clothes as well as don't share yours with others. Ringworm can also be transmitted from an infected dog or cat, so avoid animals who look mangy or have bald spots in their coats. If you have an animal that you think may have ringworm, take it to the vet for treatment.

Honestly speaking. Please don't play with nature's blessed complexion at this tender age of child. If at all you want please never. Never. Never apply harmonal fairness creams. Instead some soft minerals and choornas may be given with honey and some soft pure extracts of rose etc may be applied.

Dctr my hairs are falling alot I consult one dctr and he said ita alopecia please tell what to do.
Alopecia patients can start medications under the guidance of dermatologist. Meanwhile, you can follow some home based remedies - 1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home). 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yogurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. 4. Apply raw amla juice on hair thrice a week. 5. Rub your scalp with the juice of white onion. 6. Use a paste of bhringraj on hair. 7. You can use some good hair packs like - fenugreek and yogurt, egg and green tea. 8. You can rinse your hair with organic apple cider vinegar after washing your hair to maintain pH balance of your hair. 9. Hair health depends on the amount of protein in your diet. Foods like chicken, eggs, fish, nuts, dry fruits gives you the required nutrients to keep your skin and hair healthy. So consume plenty of them. Eat things rich in vitamin C like amla and oranges. 10. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to flush out toxins from the body.

I have big big pores in my face
Please suggest me some ways or home remedies to remove pores from my face.
Hello •Start by cleaning your skin using a special cleansing gel or oil. Do not use products that contain alcohol or acid since they can damage your skin further. Steam your face for about 10-15 minutes to open clogged pores. Add a few drops of basil or rosemary in the water for a rejuvenating effect. •Next, gently exfoliate your skin. Use a gentle face scrub of a known brand. You could even make your own natural scrub by combining ground sugar and a little milk! This process will help you remove dirt, dead cells, blackheads and whiteheads that block your skin. •The third step involves using a good toner that would close the open pores, thus diminishing their appearance. Along with closing pores, toners also help to remove soap residue and makeup, which often render a large appearance to the pores. •Finally, use a light moisturizer, preferably a water-based one that would reduce the oiliness of your skin.

If its due to weather changes, you should observe which season is more inconvenient for u. So that accordingly you have to take measures like. If you feel skin is sensitive to sun, you should take precautionary measures like applying sunscreen lotion before you go out, washing vth cold water immediately after you com home. etc. If its in winter, you have to go for a moisturizer. In the same way.

Your problem could be keratosis pilaris, or acne or contact dermatitis or keratosis follicularis. This can be determined only on an examination. Each one has a different line of management. Rubbing and scrubbing should be avoided. Do not use any form of wax, creams, blades on it. Do not rub lemon, garlic or any other caustic agent on it. You vil require treatment.

You can eat Non vegetarian food but it should not be too much spicy. Hookah has no relationship with fungal infection, but hookah is not good for general health.

When the skin gets dirty or exposed to sun, it will start appearing dark. Whenever you go out, apply sun screen. Wash your face with skin Dr. Derampolish facewash whenever you feel you look dark or anything. There are some light or mirror setting that can give you a different skin tone, example, one mirror can show you fair and the other might show you dark.

General Physician,
I have allergy all over body and skin become so dry and rough and too much itching. So many problems on my skin.
Dear lybrate-user, Don't worry such things happen during Summer. This is because of heat and moisture. Have bath more than twice a day and apply lotion. If there is any redness or skin is scaling then please get in touch with me. Please take good care of yourself. Be healthy and be well.

To prevent hair fall, we have to stop causative factors like improper diet acidity & gas more exposure to sun spicey sour n salty food to much curd day sleep lack of vitamins & other nutrients anger & stress due to previous illness etc. 1st try to avoid these factors use cow ghee & milk in diet avoid sour buttermilk & curd use trichup shampoos & nilibhrungadi oil must do oil massage in head for thick hair avoid direct sun & hair take proper diet we generally start 3 treatment together 1. Medicine for root cause & hair tonic 2. Shirodhara with medicated oil 3. Nashya treatment.
