It can b a black hair y tongue or a lichen planus. This treatment is good enough. You vil have to avoid spices and hot beverages. Do a saline gargle of the mouth. Scrape tongue lightly after that. Apply mouth paint. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Also, have riboflavin supplements.

Hairfall can be due to many reasons, like excessive pitta in the body or sinus problem or loss of asthi dhatu. So proper treatment is necessary according to symptoms. So please see some ayurveda physician near you personally. Till then you can try these home remedies. 1) start taking 1 amla everyday. 2) Apply paste of trifla, bhringraj & methi seeds on head before washing & wash after 1 hr. 3) Increase the qty of milk & ghee in your diet. 4) Have a good sleep. 5) Go for shirodhara, a panchakarma treatment for reduced stress & better hair growth 6) Reduce the amount of salt & spices in your daily diet 7) wash hair with trifla & neem kadha 8) Make a Hair pack mixing fine powders of triphala 50 gm, nagaramotha 10 gm, methi seeds 40 gm and mehendi or hena (Lowsonia inermis) powder 150 gm in water and apply from the root to the tips of the hair. This pack is kept for about 2 hrs and washed clean. 9) Take 1/3rd cup of aloe vera juice daily 10) Alcoholic drinks have animosity with good hair so you should better avoid it.

For skin problem in my penis. Tight for skin penis bahar nhi aata h dard hota h. please help me.
Phymosis is the condition. Answer to it is surgical correction by urologist or gen. Surgeon. It is required for two main reasons - 1. To clean the area behind glans (head of penis). 2. During proper sex in which vagina puts pressure on skin and if it does not go behind then it would be painful and your erection will fall. Both are important so get it done at appropiate time.

Home remidies garlic is majorly known for controlling hair fall. It boosts the circulation in the scalp and regenerates hair growth. Boil 7 to 8 cloves of crushed garlic with olive oil and apply it to the roots of the hair -follicles. Repeat this thrice a week to notice the difference. Hair loss of varied etiologies, including telogen effluvium (temporary hair loss in the resting phase of the hair growth cycle), anagen effluvium (hair loss on the scalp in the growth phase of the hair growth cycle), alopecia areata, drug-induced alopecia including chemotherapy, radiotherapy and diffuse hair loss hair fall due to dry and itchy scalp prevents hair fall and promotes hair growth: hairzone prevents follicle degeneration and stimulates hair growth. It also enhances hair tensile strength, promotes hair follicular density and hair follicle count. Hairzone inhibits chemotherapy-induced dystrophic changes in growing follicles and premature regression of severely damaged hair follicles: provides symptomatic relief: hair fall is a common symptom associated with a dry and itchy scalp. The natural ingredients in hairzone are potent antimicrobial and astringent agents. They effectively manage fungal, bacterial and viral infections of the scalp, which reduce itchiness, dryness and hair fall. Apply hair 4u 2% any querries inform me and stop omnacartil tab.

The eruption of pimples, acne, black heads, dark spots, scars, pores and oily face are due to excessive sebum secreted by sebaceous glands and hair follicles especially on the face. Precautions- * Don't scratch or pinch your pimples. This will cause more damage and scars.. * Avoid fried and oily foods. * Prefer fruits and green vegetables. * When you apply any cream, sun screen and the like, clean your face at the earliest, so that there will be no adverse action of the chemicals on the delicate skin of face. *Your skin ‘breaths’ through its pores which are not to be closed for long. Blocking pores by creams may cause more pimples. HOMOEOPATHIC medicines are taken internally. Hence, NO DIRECT CONTACT with your delicate and sensitive skin, thereby no problem of skin allergy. Homoeopathy has good treatment without causing adverse effects. The medicines work internally, tackle the root of the problem unlike face cream which is a surface treatment. Take Antim crd 200—once daily in the morning.

Gynecomastia can be due to many reasons - drug intake, endocrinal( hormonal) problems , metabolic causes or pubertal gynecomastia . Here there is enlargement of breast due to fatty or glandular component of breast. Get serum testosterone, prolactin and thyroid profile done. Medicines can correct gynecomastia only in cases of hormonal problems otherwise they are not effective. Surgical correction of gynecomastia can be done by liposuction and sos gland incision . It's a safe and near scarless procedure . Consult a plastic surgeon for that. You can go in for a private consultation where you can share your problems in more details along with the photographs also.

1. Apply a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar directly on the scar. 2. Gently massage the area so that the apple cider vinegar can be absorbed fully by the scar. 3. Allow the apple cider vinegar to dry up on its own. 4. Once you are sure that it is dry, repeat the process. 5. This can be done several times. Results can be seen after about a month of doing this process every day.

Pimples occur only to those who have oily skin and can occur anywhere above waistline. Keep your face free from oil. Use a face wash containing salycylic acid like ahaglow s face wash. Topical benzoyl peroxide and clindamycing helps in curing but should be applied only after a dermatologists prescription. Regards.

Is there complete cure for psoriasis? What is the best treatment method, homeopathy or ayurvedic?

Is there complete cure for psoriasis? What is the best treatment method, homeopathy or ayurvedic?
Hii lybrate-user, psoriasis is genetic disorder triggered due to stressful conditions and irregular life style. We are treating psoriasis using ayurvedic medicines. Psoriasis has three stages. First stage is when disease remain on skin and there are scaly patches. Second stage comes when there is pitting on nails and in last stage it enter the joints and there is pain in small joints. Generally patient use steroidal application on patches which give temporary relief and disease reappear after 2/3 days. In severe cases methotrexate is used which is not a safer option and is liver toxic. Ayurveda has got a complete remedy for psoriasis. It is a safer option and can be used for longer duration without any side effects. Ayurvedic external application give very quick results with sun exposure in clearing the scales and internal treatment does not allow the disease to re appear. Psoriasis is a manageable disease and can be managed with ease and effectively using ayurveda. You should use 3 gms of haldi with milk helps in psoriasis patients.
