I am having a problem in growing full beard. I have few bald patches in my cheek area. Pls tell me the treatment I need to grow a thick full beard and fill the patch areas.
I am facing hair problem like dullness, dandruff, hair fall, etc. They are not growing. I am using nuzen hair oil and herbal shampoo.
I had acne all over by back and chest including my face. But as of for now they have reduced to previous leaving a lot of scars and marks which look awful. I'm worried about my facial skin too its been wrecked up due to acne. So I need a way out to have a fair skin. Is it possible only by any surgery or laser treatment or would it be recovered naturally.
My sister skin is dark. She have dull complexion. She want some treatment or cream for fair skin. Her age is 28.
Eczema is not a disease per se, but is a name given collectively to a group of medical conditions, which can cause the skin to become inflamed and irritated. Atopic dermatitis is one of the most common types of eczema.
While the exact cause of eczema is not known, the most commonly attributed reason is an increasingly sensitive immune system. The overactive immune system produces antibodies, which cause these skin reactions. It is also noted that people with allergies including hay fever and asthma are more likely to develop eczema.
There is also a genetic predisposition, and children whose parents have had eczema are likely to develop eczema.
In most people, eczema is present in the form of small blisters, which are filled with fluid and can ooze. Gradually, there could be dryness, crusting, scaling and thickening of the skin with plaque formation. The most common symptom would be itching. The different types of eczema as noted above would have diagnostic features. For instance, when testing for irritant or contact dermatitis, there would be an irritant that is causing this. Stasis dermatitis would have circulatory issues and often affects the lower legs.
For a trained medical eye, diagnosis of eczema is not a tough task. A complete physical examination may be done to assess the extent of eczema spread. Blood tests may be done to test for allergies. In very rare cases, a biopsy may also be required.
The goal of treatment is to reduce itching and improve moisturization. Eczema, unless associated with an infection, is not contagious.
Using copious amounts of creams and lotions help in improving hydration and moisturization, as they are allowed to soak into the skin.
Associated infections like scalp infections and fungal infections should also be treated with suitable products.
Immunomodulator creams are useful by suppressing the immune system and preventing flare up of the allergic reactions.
Cold compresses may be used to relieve itching.
Since there is a strong genetic component related to eczema, prevention is helpful.
Constantly keep the skin moist and hydrated by using moisturizers, especially during winters.
Avoid clothes and metals which can cause allergy- like wool, nickel, harsh soaps, detergents, etc.
Avoid or be careful about food items which are known to cause allergies.
