Homoeopathy can help you. Start below mention tips and homoeopathic medicines. 1. Eat healthy and balanced food like pulses (soyabin is best for hair), egg, green leafy vegetables, fishes, fruits and nuts etc. 2. Drink more water (12 to 15 glass per day) 3. Avoid stress and anger 4. For prevention of fungle infection in scalp wash your hair regularly with some good shampoo. You can use conditioner for smoothing of hair quality. 5. Avoid combing of wet hair. 6. Do not share your towel or comb with other people. Try these tips. For homoeopathic medicine consult me on private.

Hormone level change during youth or puberty makes the scalp oily and causes dandruff. People think applying oil in hair will help them get rid of dandruff though it is not true. Oil doesn’t help remove dandruff in any way.

Lubricate your hair. Using a moisturizer greatly reduces the chances of split ends and promotes hair growth by diminishing breakage. However, to avoid overtly oily hair, use only a little moisturizer or try lubricating your hair a couple of hours before hair wash. Moisturized hair will attract dust if you go out.

You can try Homeopathy as it is safe and without any side effects. You have to take care of what you eat and maintain good health and overall fitness. Maintain good hygiene. You can use a mild shampoos once or twice a week. Eat healthy food (more natural and organic foods ). Avoid all junk food and bad habits. Do go for a routine checkup and check your blood sugar, CBC, thyroid etc. Have daily fruits and vegetables.

The oiliness of the skin cannot go completely but it can be reduced. Splash plain water on the face4-5 times in a day. Have more of fruits, salads in between meals. Consume less of oily, fried food and do regular exercise for the glow on the face.

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. Also, use Bakson’s Apricot scrub 1-2times a week on the area.

Hi. It seems to be an allergy. So, take homoeopathic medicines- Rhus Tox. 200/ one dose once a week and Urtica Urens 200/ one dose daily for a month. Along with these homoeopathic medications, follow the management part as well: - Avoid direct contact with the detergent soap or powder - Keep your hands moisturised always, use aloe vera cream - Also apply sunscreen with SPF- 30 liberally means apply a thick layer of the sunscreen 20-30 minutes before going out in the sunlight on the exposed areas and repeat it's application again after 3-4hrs. - Don't use any harsh hand soap, use hand soap with aloe vera in it. - Apply mixture of glycerine mixed with sugar every night. - Keep yourself hydrated always, drink at least 12-15 glasses of water daily (and in case there is excessice exposure to sunlight, increase the intake). - Take food rich in Vitamin A, C, E and protein. (If there is no improvement even after taking these medicines, need to look into the matter).

It is due to dry air causing allergic eyes, which creates a burning or itchy sensation or the feeling that a foreign object is in your eye. The cause may be the lower humidity levels inside your home or office when the windows are closed. Spending time outside on windy days can also have a drying effect. People who wear contact lenses are the ones most likely to experience this problem, but it can affect anyone, Over time, dryness can cause blurred vision or damage the cornea, which can also lead to blurriness.------------------------------ 1. Moisten your eyes. Drink extra fluids and use a hot- or cold-air humidifier while you’re awake and your eyes are open.----------------------- 2. Add tears. Lubricating eye drops provide comfort. These help supplement the natural tear layer and keep the tears from evaporating so quickly,------------------------- 3. Blink more. When you’re concentrating on a complex visual task, such as using a computer, you just don’t blink as often, which can exacerbate dryness, If your eyes feel dry at work, make a point of blinking more often.----------------------- 4. Wear glasses. If you’re outdoors on a blustery day, sunglasses will protect your eyes from the drying effects of the wind.-------------------- Homoeopathic medicine----------------- CINELUBE EYEDROPS (HAPDCO) Pour 2 drops 3 times daily.
