Doctor, will kojivit gel will give me the same result like melacare forte. Can I use kojivit gel for skin whitening.

Melacare has hydroquinine and kojivit has kojic aid. Both are different. Both will help in achieving fairness. Apply kojivit in morning and melacare at night.

Pimples had become my Friend for the last 5 years i'm trying out my best way to remove it visited many Doctors regarding that matter but its not working at all. I hope I get a best suited answErs through this. Thank you.

MBBS, DNB (Dermatology)
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Hi! Pimples occur mainland due to hormonal imbalances which causes an overproduction of oil and cells inside a skin follicle. They block the opening of the skin pore and cause the follicle under the skin to swell and become red. It usually starts in teenage, but most of the time lasts into adulthood. Use Episoft OC face wash twice daily and apply peroduo gel at night over the affected areas on alternate days. Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water. Have good amount of fruits and salad in your diet.

It includes whiteheads, pimples, blackheads and rashes, and occurs usually on the face, chest.

My hair are so thin, I have regular hairfall from last 3 year and when I rub my hair some scalp are falling out. What should I do for stopping hairfall.

Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL), MBBS
Dermatologist, Ranchi
See main cause of hair fall & hair damage is due to infection in scalp skin, which easily goes into hairs follicles & its root and results in hair fall, thinning of hairs. For control on hair fall you have to control on infections, medicines takes time to remove infections due to less blood supply in scalp skin. It requires proper medicines and care.

Hello lybrate-user. Relax n do not worry. Its a part of hair cycle. Ensure you have healthy food habits, minimum 12 glasses of water, early sleeping time n regular activity levels of the body. Please rinse your hair with mild shampoo after diluting the shampoo with water. Keep your hair oil free n dirt free for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, pls apply the mixture of Almond oil, Keratex Oil, Coconut oil and evion capsule extract on your scalp n evenly on your hair strands. Rinse regularly. Please ensure that you have ample of proteins in your meal and multi vitaminsupplements which will strengthen your hair folicles. If the problem persists even after 1 month, please visit a Dermatologist n Trichologist.

I have stretch marks on skin every joints of my body like knee, Thai, shoulder. What should i do remove them?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
There's no way to prevent stretch marks. There are no products on the market that can prevent them, Creams that claim to work on stretch marks are applied to the external layer of skin. But they won't reach the layer underneath, which is the part that stretches. So There's no need to spend lots of money on creams and lotions. Make your Own Stretch Marks Removing Lotion:-For this, mix ¼ cup aloe vera gel and ½ cup extra virgin oil. Break open 6 Vitamin E capsules and 3-4 Vitamin A capsules and add the liquid to the oil and gel mixture. Mix all the ingredients and store it in a bottle. This is your natural lotion to remove stretch marks. Keep this bottle in the refrigerator. Apply daily on the stretch marks. Shake the bottle before use. Take care.

I m getting irritated by pimples on my face and it does much irritation and my face looks odd by the pimples so can I know how to reduce them.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
These are the methods to treat fastly pimples: • Imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • 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 pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • 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. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day.

I am 21 year old female and my problem is I have lost my hair everyday because of uncontrolled hairfall I tried all the things like herbal and best companies shampoos olive oil etc. But I m not getting rid from my problem I m just too young and I also have gray hair please give me best suggestion what should I do.

Hi. It's normal to lose up to 100 hair per day, and in most people, those hairs grow back. But many men -- and some women -- lose hair as they grow older. You can also lose your hair if you have certain diseases, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or lupus. If you take certain medicines or have chemotherapy for cancer, you may also lose your hair. Other causes are stress, a low protein diet, a family history, use of bore water, or nutritional deficiencies. Need to rule out any causative factor or underlying medical condition. Management: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg, eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin), different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. Walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you fit and young! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, you can take one tablet of multivitamin Folli Hair once daily for 1 month (as premature greying of hair could be due to nutritional deficiency and get your Thyroid Function Test also done). Get your blood tested for CBC, Hb%, S. Ferritin, S. Folic acid, S. Iron, S. vitamin B12, S. vitamin D3, S. Calcium.
