Use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use aha glow face wash daily 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 with mother for 5 mins after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

Hello- This is due to the toxins (Chicken pox virus) which was not eliminated by the blood,so hair gain treatment is not resulting properly in your case. Try this treatment instead- A) Avoid spicy and salty food, junk food, fried food. B) Avoid late night sessions and go to bed before 10 c) Do not use harsh chemicals like shampoo and dyes if using. D)Try this remedy- amla+mehndi + bhringraj-take these three herbs in powder form and make a paste by adding water>> apply this paste and old iron kadhai and leave it for three night >> daily add some water to the paste to Avoid dryness of the paste. Use this paste on your hairs it will not only remove toxin from your scalp but also prevent your hairs from greying and falling in the near future. You can also use some good ayurvedic hair oils and medicines like, Nili bhringadi hair oil, Narsimha rasayana for internal purpose.

After having sex so much of acne in face .so Please tell any tablet after sex to be taken or not.
Hello lybrate-user, If you are consuming any tablet like Viagra or any other ayurvedic tablet to increase your sexual stamina then it surely is going to leave a mark on your body mechanism. I would advice you to stop taking any tablets for gaining sexual strength or vigour. Have plenty of fluids especially milk mixed with Khajur after sex to gain your list strength. But keep away from any medicines. For your pimples just wash your face regularly and let your body flush out the toxins on it's own. Give your body some time to get cured. If it doesn't get cured on it's own then you may require medicines to get rid of pimples. You can consult any doctor on Lybrate. I hope I have cleared your doubts. Tk care.

Exfoliative Dermatitis (Peeling of Skin) - Can it Be Treated?

MBBS, Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL), Diploma in Venerology & Dermatology (DVD)
Dermatologist, Nanded
Exfoliative Dermatitis (Peeling of Skin) - Can it Be Treated?

The term exfoliative dermatitis literally means peeling or shedding of the skin. It is also known as erythroderma. This condition is characterized by the reddening and peeling away of large patches of skin all over the body. The skin may also turn rough and scaly and feel painful or itchy. Exfoliative dermatitis is caused by a skin cell disorder, which causes a rapid turnover in skin cells. People suffering from chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis, autoimmune diseases, eczema and seborrheic dermatitis are at a high risk of suffering from this condition.

Apart from affecting a person’s appearance, the shedding of skin cells can also cause dehydration and nutritional deficiencies especially of protein and vitamin A and D. The loss of skin cells also makes you vulnerable to serious infections and damage to muscles and bones. It can also lead to hair loss and thickening of nails. Thus it is important to treat this condition as early as possible.
Treatment for this condition depends on a number of factors including the patient’s age, overall health, tolerance to specific types of medication and procedures and extent of reaction. When treating this disease, it is important to identify the root cause as it resists treatment until the root cause has been treated. To do this, a skin biopsy may be needed along with a physical examination and blood tests.

Patients suffering from acute exfoliative dermatitis may also require hospitalization. Hospitalization may also be suggested for elderly patients or people living alone. This is in cases where the condition has affected the patient’s fluid levels and internal body temperature. Emergency treatment can include:

  • Discontinuation of medications that may be causing this condition as a side effect
  • Application of petroleum jelly on the affected area to reduce fluid loss and prevent secondary infections
  • Non adherent dressing of the affected areas if the skin is crusting or weeping
  • Correction of body temperature through cooling baths or heated blankets
  • Antibiotics and intravenous fluids to combat dehydration

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist and ask a free question.

Avoid cosmetics and over the counter face products. Overwashing won't remove pimples or spots. You need to use cold water and wash face with a salicylic acid containing wash twice a day and not more. It vil help reduce the oiliness to a large degree. You can also use a natural face pack of orange, honey and curd for fifteen minutes once a week and wash it off. This vil decrease the the oil, whiten and moisturise your skin.
