Hi Dipak... The pimples or acne are a kind of skin disease and occurs because of altered internal system of our body and not just external skin. So treating it with local application like cream and face wash will never help... It needs proper internal treatment preferably homoeopathic... You can consult me through lybrate... Till then you may start with Berberis Aquifolium Q 10 drops TDs..

Subcision can be tried in which a hypodermic needle is inserted to break the fibrotic bands attached to the depressed acne scar. Similarly saline injections can be tried which promotes collagen synthesis. Both these give good cosmetic improvement. Another option would be to go for fractional CO2 which gives excellent results. Multiple sittings may be required.

Hello, your symptoms can be due to seborrheic dermatitis which is a severe form of dandruff. Don't use Fucibet for long since it contains a steroid and can give side effects. Please use Salisia KT or Scalpe shampoo for head bath and around nose during bath thrice a week for a month and then as maintenance at least once a week for 2 months. Avoid oiling scalp as fungus thrives in oily scalp. You could oil 1 hr prior to head bath. Apply Tacrovera solution on scalp and around nose at night for a month. Please see a local dermatologist for further assessment if no satisfactory response.

I am having hair loss somecurdy white thing get deposited on my heads scalp it itches.

Regular massaging of the scalp with lukewarm oil helps to stimulate the hair follicles. This is also an easy way to cure hair growth deterrents like dandruff and fungal infections. Regular massaging increases the blood circulation in the scalp. It is also useful for lowering anxiety or stress that is often the underlying reason for thinning of hair. Recommended oils for 3 to 4 times-a-week massaging schedule includes coconut oil. You can alternate this with mustard oil. Keep the oil on for at least six hours before washing it off with a mild shampoo. Other oils that can be mixed with coconut oil in trace amounts for faster results include almond oil.

Most important is hygeine. Keep your body clean and scrubbed, wear cotton clothes. Bathe twice with anti bacterial soap like Cetaphil or Sebamed. Improve your diet, leave junk food. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables
