You can wait and watch .Keep checking the BP and temperature. If he active and eats properly with good digestion and bowel movements then not much to worry. Is the headache tolerable? If he feels sick and uncomfortable then he needs to be clinically checked by a physician so that proper guidance can be given.

Hello, thank you for posting on lybrate. It seems your friend is suffering from tinea cruris and corporis, a kind of fungal infection. I usually recommend proper course of oral anti-fungal drugs like fluconazole or itraconazole along with anti-fungal cream like luliconazole for local application at bedtime. You can additionally use antifungal dusting powder containing sertaconazole during day time and a soap containing ketoconazole for rinsing of affected areas. Take oral antihistaminics for itching as required. Maintain hygiene over those areas and avoid wearing tight undergarments. Hope your queries are resolved and wish you best of health. If you require any further assistance in future, you can reach me directly by using the option of'private question' on lybrate. Thank you Dr. Hardik pitroda.

I am 42 years old. Problem- hair fall, white what to do for black and dense hair.
Dear lybrate-user, start taking black til (seasam) with a glass of lukewarm milk early morning. Avoid pickles, spices, oily, greesy food items, too much of salt in food shud be avoided. Start avle ka murabba daily. Also have a high protien rich diet e. G. Pulses, dry fruits, black gram, ground nut etc, white of egg (if you eat egg). Also oil your hair with good herbal oil and wash with herbal shamppoo - avoid shampoos with high acid contents. As far as ayurveda's therapy is concerned - start with shirodhara with herbal oil and nasyam therapy for atleast 15 days. This will greatly help. Do gentle massage with herbal hair oil daily night for 15 minutes. Please update with your valuable feedback.

Premature greying of hair is characterized by circumscribed or general lack or loss of normal pigment. Greying of hair is due to the gradual loss of the melanocytes pigment – melanin. Causes of Greying are: Genes play a major role. Vitamin B-12 deficiency or Problems with your pituitary or thyroid gland can cause premature graying that’s reversible if the problem is corrected. A faulty diet is the two primary causes of premature greying of hair. It is mainly due to the lack of iron, copper and iodine in the daily diet that this hair disorder is caused at a young age these days. Mental worries, stress produce an extraordinary tension in the skin of the scalp which interferes with the supply of vital nutrition necessary for the health of the hair. Similarly, anxieties, fear, and failures have adverse effects on the hair. They dry out the scapular marrow, the vital part at the root of the hair. Unclean conditions of the hair weaken the roots of the hair as the pores are blocked by the dirt. Washing the hair with hot water and drying them in electric dryers which emit a blast of hot air. Use of hair dyes in earlier stages also increases the problem. Homeopathy can be a boon for those suffering from grey hair. Its is a holistic system of medicine. Detailed case history is taken and depending on the cause, the medicines are prescribed. Homeopathic medicines are natural and completely safe without any side-effects. Homeopathic medicines are prescribed after in-depth analysis of symptoms. You can consult me online via Lybrate for medicines. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

These are the methods to treat pimples - •Steam your face to open the pores ,which in turn clear the skin .steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily . • Do not touch your face again & again because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste & apply on the pimples three times a week. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp .Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTSHODHAK syrup of BAIDYANATH company once a day after meals

Hi. I am 20 years old. Im suffering from acne. I think its because of unclean stomach. I need suggestions for the same.

Firstly, don't try to self treat acne. Some popular nonprescription acne lotions, cleansers and other skin products can cause a serious reaction (rare), mostly it is normal to have acne in teenage. For pimples it's important to wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or propping your cheek or chin on your hands. Not only can you spread bacteria, you can also irritate the already inflamed facial skin. Never pick or pop pimples with your fingers, as it can lead to infection and scarring. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Kojic acid (a natural skin lightener derived from mushroom extract), arbutin (also called bearberry extract), and vitamin c (ascorbic acid) are great alternative ingredients to lighten scars left by acne. Don't use vitamin e on scars. You may have heard that applying vitamin e to a scar will help it heal faster. But according to a study, applying the nutrient directly onto a scar can actually hinder its healing. In the study, vitamin e either had no effect or made matters worse for 90% of the patients, and 33% who put vitamin e on the skin developed a contact dermatitis. I am a registered dietitian and a doctor who will help you in your skin problems reply back for private consultation.

I am suffering from hair fall, how to stop my hair fall. Please suggest me for cure.

I am suffering from hair fall, how to stop my hair fall. Please suggest me for cure.
Loosing 50 to 60 strands of hair while oiling, washing and combing is normal. If the hair comes out even on slightest touch or if lot of hair is seen on pillow after getting up in morning then it is considered as hair fall. We have to check scalp and even hair. There are lot of reasons for getting hair fall. Nutritional deficiency stands on top, apart from that any acute illness like malaria, typhoid or chronic illness like diabetes, thyroid also contributes hair fall. Hair needs protein, minerals and iron. Protein rich diet like sprouts, beans, nuts along with green leafy vegetable will support the hair. Drink 3 lit of water/day. Oil the scalp 3/week and wash it 3/week. These all will help to correct basic functioning of hair. Consult trichologist if problem persist.

I am 22 yrs Female, My hair's density on my Fore head side  is less. How to increase the density of the hairs.
Women lose hair on an inherited (genetic) basis, too, but the female pattern tends to be more diffuse, with less likelihood of the crown and frontal hairline being lost. More women have underlying causes of hair loss than men. These include treatable conditions like anemia and thyroid disease and polycystic ovary syndrom. first of all you should start taking a healthy and balanced diet. Hair fall is a result of any deficiency of any essential nutrient. 1. Eat colourful fruits and green leafy vegetables. 2. Include more protien rich supplements to your diet. 3. Take phosphorus 200, 5 drops , morning empty stomach, once in week. 4. wiesbaden 200, 5 drops , daily morning empty stomach. 5. Apply Arnica hair growth oil (B &T) on your hair and scalp, thrice in a week. 6. Wash hair with Arnica montana herbal shampoo (SBL) 7. Drink minimum 10 glasses of water per day. 8. Take 10 ml amla juice mixed with half cup of water, at daily night.

Your problem could be keratosis pilaris, or acne or contact dermatitis or keratosis follicularis. This can be determined only on an examination. Each one has a different line of management. Rubbing and scrubbing should be avoided. Do not use any form of wax, creams, blades on it. Do not rub lemon, garlic or any other caustic agent on it. You vil require treatment.
