The dark spots and patching could also be a result of ageing that needs some attention by you. Start using retinol products that wonderfully helps in dark spots, patching and wrinkles as well. You may start using Yuguard cream at bedtime and apply sunscreen daily. Also make sure you exercise daily and have lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.

I would like you give me some more details like fasting & pp blood sugar levels, hba1c level, lipid profile and medicines being taken. From your explanation it appears that diabetes control is not good. The swellings that you have mentioned are they red, pointing and painful on touch, if so they must be furruncles and on top this if you have developed foot ulcer then it is more serious matter. If you are not on insulin already, please start it straight away with your doctor's advise. If surgery is advised please get it done. Only antibiotics may not be able to resolve the matter.

It is unlikely, that if you have eaten beef a few times before and never developed a rash that it is due to it. If you are eating in for the first or second time it might be possible. It is more likely that you are allergic to some spice or an ingredient used.

Low level of Testosterone cause very slow growth of beard and moustaches. For fast growth of beard & moustaches apply these very useful methods: • Do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA yogasana daily. You can ask me for the details & steps of these asanas. • Take 1/2 teaspoon ashwagandha powder and 1/2 teaspoon of amla powder mix it and take it with water once in a day. • Do running and jogging daily as it increase the hormones levels. • Do neck massage with oil daily. • you can consult me for Ayurvedic medicines & cream in my package that helps in fastly growing moustache & beards.

We all are aware of the fact that our height increases up to a particular age and then it comes to a halt. Height increases up to the age of 18years in women and up to the age of 20 years in men. Increase in height is attributed to the production of growth hormone, called the HGH( Human Growth Hormone), which is secreted by the pituitary gland called the master gland of our body. It is rather difficult to increase height after reaching adulthood as the production of these hormones slowly stops. In most cases, the epiphyses of the long bones are fused as the last bits of cartilaginous tissue in the bones turn into solid hard bones. This prevents any further growth in longer bones. However, if the hormones are released naturally, increase in height can be observed. Increase in height at your age depends upon a no. of factors like 1.Heriditary factor 2.Recorded any increase in height in last 6 months 3.Amount of effort you are putting in for increase in height 4.How much serious are you for your height 5.Will you give 100% if I show you a direction 6.Just do your bit with full determination and leave the rest to time,exercises and medicines. Consult me Fast for Homoeopathic consultation as you short of time Chapped or dry lips are a common problem that can be painful and unattractive. Common symptoms are dryness, redness, cracking, flaking, and tender or sore lips.Some of the main causes are vitamin deficiency, allergic reaction, dehydration, smoking, excessive licking of lips, sun exposure and harsh weather. Castor oil is good treatment for dry and chapped lips. • Simply apply castor oil to your lips several times a day. • You can also make a soothing treatment using one teaspoon of castor oil, one teaspoon of glycerin and a few drops of fresh lemon juice. Mix it well and apply it on your lips before going to bed. In the morning, wash it off with a cotton ball dipped in lukewarm water. Repeat this daily until your lips are healed. • Homoeopathic LIP BALM ( BAKSON LAB) Apply twice daily

To loose 100 hair in a day is normal as your scalp has hair in all phases so some are in growing stage some in falling stage. If you feel your hairfall is more than that and there is hair thinning please start treatment. Take oral supplememnts and also you can think of taking platelet rich plasma treatment for hair.

Dark circles may be caused by stress and lack of sleep. Ensure you get atleast 8 hours of sleep. Green tea contains powerful antioxidants which can reduce the pigmentation to a certain extend. If skin around the eyes is wrinkled you can go for laser treatment. However it does not help in reducing pimentation. Under eye creams containing niacinamide can be tried which gives good results.

Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity.
