Hello lybrate-user, as you are facing scalp psoriasis problem in the age of 25, we can manage scalp psoriasis in a better way.

You can apply same oil on scalp on sunday or holiday and sit in sun for 15 minutes. We can manage it like that the disease does not come back. Internal ayurvedic medicines will be provided for blood purification.

Hope ur having a pleasant Sunday...here are few tips i promised to share in my last post about sleeping well. there are few Basic principles one need to understand for sound sleep- One that body should be adequately tired by the time you go to bed and Second that your mind should be relaxed before u go to bed. there are Various DOs and DONTs one can follow to achieve the same
1. Do exercise/walk daily atleast for 1/2 hr (but not late evenings)
2. Fix a routine time for sleeping and getting up (preferably sleep by 11 pm or earlier if possible)
3.Avoid lying in bed while watching TV and Reading
4. Dont drink Tea or Coffee before going to bed
5. Sleep in a peaceful and dark room with comfortable clothing and bedding 6.Avoid eating very heavy meals at night
7. For some people a warm water bath and glass of warm milk helps in relaxing before going to bed
8. Avoid reading/watching very exciting content before going to bed because the chances are ur night will be filled with dreams related to that content causing non-refreshing sleep

Dealing With Skin Rash

Fellowship In Hair Transplantation, DNB (Dermatology), Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL), MBBS

Dealing With Skin Rash

A rash is a distinct change noticeable on the skin. The change may be on the skin color or the skin texture. It might make your skin scaly, itchy, lumpy and even irritated. You might get skin rashes if you are allergic to a particular substance, or if you are under some medicine which may have a side effect. Many cosmetics may also trigger skin rashes. Certain diseases like chickenpox or measles also cause the appearance of skin rashes.

In order to deal with skin rashes, here are a few things you could do and use:

  1. Care at home: With a sudden outburst of rashes, wash the affected area with water and mild soap to cool it down. Make sure you don't scratch there even if it itches, as that may cause infection. You may also apply ice to help it cool down. Avoid sunlight as much as you can, as it will aggravate the condition. Wear loose fitting clothes so that there is minimal contact of the fabric and the skin as such contact may make the rash itch. Avoid using perfumes or deodorants as even they might set of the itchy feeling. Use a mild soap while bathing.
  2. Use hydrocortisone cream: Hydrocortisone cream is also known as anti-itching cream. It helps to reduce the itching and redness as well as lessen the swelling. Hydrocortisone is a mild form of corticosteroid. Make sure you don't use it if the affected part is infected or sore because then the results will be the opposite from the one you want.
  3. Use calamine lotions: Calamine lotions will give you relief from the pain caused due to the skin rash. It will also relieve you of the itching and the irritation, which the rash causes. It will also help ooze dry and watery discharge from the rash. If you are pregnant or lactating, consult your doctor before using calamine lotions.
  4. Have antihistamine tablets: If the skin rash is due to an insect bite, then you can take antihistamine tablets for it. These tablets reduce itching and lighten the rash until it disappears.

Even when you are using any of the above medicines, make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients of the medicine as that will just cause more complications. So consult your doctor before using any medicine.

Dear,Masturbation is a very common behavior among men and women. Having a sexual pleasure or orgasm without a partner of opposite sex is called ?Solosex? or ?Auto erotic sexual behavior. When a person feels this kind of solo orgasm in awakened state, then its called ?Masturbation. Masturbation habit slowly kills the physical, mental and sexual health because masturbation is an unnatural and abnormal activity. Visit us at www.Malhotraayurveda.Com
