I have a pimple on my face. What are the causes of that pimple? How can I avoid this? And how I remove pimple mark?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
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 tcan 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.

Atopic Dermatitis - Homeopathic Remedies for it!

BHMS
Homeopath,
Atopic Dermatitis - Homeopathic Remedies for it!

Atopic dermatitis or as it is commonly known as, eczema, is one of the most common and recurring form of skin disease. Some of the common symptoms of eczema are redness, swelling of skin, temporary discoloration and dryness among others. It not only causes a significant amount of irritation, but is extremely persistent in its occurrence. Combating atopic dermatitis is a rather cumbersome task, often leading to anxiety and depression. It is indeed one of the most problematic skin hindrances. Dermatitis usually occurs due to the inflammation of the epidermis. 

Some of the more obvious causes are exposure to ultraviolet rays, familial predisposition, prolonged exposure to the offending allergen, latent infection, indigestion, hormonal imbalance among others. Occurrence of eczema considerably lowers the skin resistance and makes you vulnerable to various other skin troubles. Atopic dermatitis is especially congenital in nature. It has reported greater frequency in individuals whose family has some record of eczema or the other. Past incidents of asthma, hay fever may also act as triggers. Signs of eczema are usually manifested in itchy patches in the neck, scalp and palms. 

Symptoms of Eczema or Atopic Dermatitis

  1. The usual symptoms of eczema are redness, itching, scaling and thickening of the skin.
  2. Itching is the most predominant symptom. At times the itching is so intense that one is forced to scratch the area till it bleeds.
  3. A thick crust like layer is formed on the skin which may give a leathery look to the skin.
  4. In some cases, there may be oozing of a discharge from the affected area. The discharge is often watery and sticky. This is known as wet eczema.
  5. In other cases, there is no oozing of any discharge and the skin remains dry. This is often known as dry eczema.

Role of Homeopathy in treating Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic Dermatitis is very efficiently treated with natural Homeopathic medicines. The medicines firstly help in decreasing the severity of disease, itching and the frequency of relapses. And with the constitutional natural Homeopathic remedies selected solely on the basis of individual symptoms, there is a promise of eradicating the disease from its root. The Homeopathic medicine selection is based upon totality of symptoms. The totality includes the site of eruption, the type of eruption, the worsening and relieving factors, time of itching, desires and aversions regarding food, sensitivity towards heat and cold, and the peculiar mental symptoms if present in a high degree. Homeopathic remedies help in eradicating Dermatitis from the root by increasing the patient’s immunity to the optimal level so that there won’t be any hypertensive flare-ups. The Homeopathic treatment for Atopic Dermatitis is not instant and does take time though, varying from months to a year depending upon the severity, duration of Dermatitis, plus the individual response to the remedy taken.

Given the commonness of the disease, there are numerous remedies for it as well. However, many vouch for the efficacy of homeopathy in curing such skin ailments. Homeopathy not only offers natural solutions to eczema but also detoxifies the system from within to curtail the frequency of such outbursts. Homeopathy also averts any kind of side effects. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

Is gatsby hair wax harmful for my hair does it lead to thinning of hair and hair fall.

MD - Dermatology
Dermatologist, Pathanamthitta
Yes,this can damage ur hair.stop using it.Hair fall could b significant or just physiological without any systemic involvement. Firstly, don't stress over it. Meditate. Practice yoga. Relax yourself. Stress vil increase your hairfall. Drink two litres of water. Eat plenty of pulses, meat, fish and milk. Avoid hair cosmetics. Wash hair twice or thrice a week. Shampoo should be done to wash dirt, dust and grime and not for anything else. Don't use dyes, bleaches or straighteners. Massage scalp to improve circulation. After a bath, don't blow dry your hair instead naturally dry hair. If any scalp infection, get it treated. Any allergy should be taken care of.

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
No special diet is needed for vitiligo as it is autoimmune disease. As far as high bp is concerned low salt and low fat diet is recommended. Avoid fried foods, ghee, butter, and other animal fats. Consume toned milk in your daily routines. Salt restriction is very important; so avoid any kind of extra salt in salads or in the form of snakcs and namkeens of any type.

MBBS, MD - Dermatology , Venereology & Leprosy

Dandruff can be treated with lotions and shampoo (not commercial ones). Some people do have more oily scalp which cause visible flakes which we cause dandruff. There are some other conditions also which can present like flaking of the scalp. Do not apply oil on scalp as it will increase the problem. Please contact me with photos through online consult option or visit me for treatment.,

Hi lybrate user, all these symptons including excessive levels of cortisol, indicating cushing's syndrom. For this you can try allopathic medicines initially to get immediate improvement but that will not be a permanent solution. So, you can opt homeopathic medicines paralally, on long time intake of these medicines you can reduce the dosage of allopthic drugs n later permanently with observing improvement in your condition, symptoms n suffering wise, gradually can tapper the allopthic drugs. But in homeo, you need to continue medication for quite long time as its related to harmonal imbalance,&a kind of auto immune dissorder/metobolism.
