Fungal infection needs to treated with oral antifungals like fluconazole, itraconazole, terbinafine, griseofulvin if it is extensive. Otherwise creams- amrolfine, luliconazole, clotrimazole, terbinafine, dusting powders- clotimazole, soaps - ketoconazole can be used.

It is most likely bronchial asthma due to allergens in the air. She seems to be allergic to the pollens or dust in port blair. Either she has to move out from there to another city like bangalore or take inhalers regularly to control the symptoms. In any case consultation with a good pulmonologist should help.

Everyone has a favourite face cream or treatment, but beautiful skin starts with nourishment from within. Older cells are constantly shed and replaced by younger ones and a steady supply of micronutrients is essential to support this rapid growth. Eat the correct balance of foods and you'll feed your skin the vital nutrients it needs to help it stay soft, supple, glowing and blemish-free.---------------------------------- homoeopathic treatment aucare complexion drops (wolfe dietri) drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily.

For a youthful glow, try these things - a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. B. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. C. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. D. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. E. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. F. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day.  g. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients.

Dear friend, antioxidants are alway good for health. But I feel at your age there is no need for you to take supplements, instead if you increase intake of food those have high quantity of antioxidants like walnuts, fish, most of the fruits and raw broccoli. Best wishes.

I have hypertrophic scar. I had a wound which didn't heal on time, that caused extra scar upon wound. How to treat it naturally? I have found some solutions when I google. 1) Silicone Gel Sheet 2) Baking Soda Will these work? I don't want any steroid injection, needling. Apart from that how can I treat to make it flatter and disappear/cure completely? How many months it may take?

How to treat it...
There is no natural solution to your problem. You will require prescription medicines to flatten the scar. The effect will be very slow and it might take almost 6 months also to see difference. Taking steroid injection within the scar will help in flatten faster but since you dont want injection then you will have to use the topical medicines only.

Hello, psoriasis is genetic disorder triggered due to stressful conditions and irregular life style. 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. Coconut oil is best remedy for dry skin to be applied after taking bath. You can use salytar soap. You should use 3 gms of haldi with milk helps in psoriasis patients.

Always use your umbrella whether its raining or not. Use a cap to cover your head. Protect your eyes with a sunshade. Avoid scrubbing your face. Do not steam or sauna. If you swim, use a sunscreen prior to it and after. Avoid face cosmetics for the time being. You can press powder onto your sunscreen if at all you want to use a cosmetic. Drink two litres of water everyday. Pick up carrots, papaya, pumpkin, black grapes to have everyday. These contain important antioxidants and phytonutrients which vil soften your skin. Do not stress over anything. You can use this do it yourself mask at home which vil give you an instant glow. Mix 1 tbsp puree each of papaya and cucumber with 1 tbsp of curd and 1 tbsp of aloe vera. Apply it across your face or dull body part for ten to fifteen minutes and wash it off without soap.
