No cream no face wash can cure pimples. What you need is proper treatment. I am giving you some advise if you can follow them you can get good results. Wash face with cold water 4-5 times a day. Use mild natural face wash. Use natural fruit pack. Take 1pc carrot, 1 pc tomato, 1 pc apple grind it add some honey and few drops of lemon juice apply on skin. Wash it after 20-30 mins. Eat healthy food, drink 4-5 litrs of water. Eat lots of fruits. With this you must need proper homeopathic treatment for cure. Soo you can contact me through Lybrate.

I have itching problems since 3 months. Is there any solution for this?
if possible send exact location of itch or pics. If you have fungal infection/itching, then home remedies or self treatment wont work to cure it, for fungal itch I will prescribe a schedule of anti fungal medication for your specific problem which have to be strictly followed or the fungii may develop resistance and come back later once cured. Hence never self treat fungal itches with any self prescribed medicines or it may lead to resistance and lifelong problem. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

My face gets very oily after some time. What should I do?
Hi. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium can worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days. Use Bakson's Apricot scrub at least once a week.

What should I do to remove the darkness near neck, underarms?

What should I do to remove the darkness near neck, underarms?
Hi, Dark underarms are generally caused by sweating, improper cleaning, dead skin cells, and friction caused as a result of different qualities of clothes. In some people dark underarms could be due to the alcohol content in the deodorants or the shaving products that they use. Another common cause of dark underarms is plucking and shaving. Every time you pluck or shave it causes micro-abrasions. These wounds on healing cause darkening of the skin. Tips to help you whiten your underarms in a natural manner: - Scrubbing your armpits with an exfoliating scrub of your choice for about five minutes daily is the first step to whiten your dark underarms. - Aloe vera gel when rubbed over the underarms in a similar manner also has the same effect as cleansing them. - Raw grated potato juice helps bleach your skin and whiten your underarms naturally. - Cucumber juice also has the same effect. - Regularly rub a slice of lemon over your underarms and see the difference. - Also, once you are done with your shower, you could take some baking powder and rub it onto your underarms. - Another tip of for whitening dark underarms naturally is using a paste made using one tablespoon curd, one teaspoon milk (natural), and one teaspoon gram flour. Add a little turmeric powder to this paste and liberally apply on your armpits. Wash it completely once it dries off. - Mixture made from sandalwood powder and rose water can work wonders and help whiten your underarms. - Another mixture that can help is lime juice and coconut oil in equal proportions sprinkled with a dash of turmeric powder. Apply this to your underarms and rinse in about 20 minutes or so. If you are wondering how to whiten your underarms overnight try waxing. Waxing helps you get rid of your underarm hair and also help in the removal of dead skin cells, leaving your underarms looking clean. Medication: Apply homeoopathic ointment - Medisynth's Witch Hazel.

Waxing is the best option. If you need a per and t solution, you can later go for laser hair removal to permanently remove it. There is no medicine to control hair growth. It is hormonal. Try getting waxing done once, if you like it, continue with it.
