Hi make a paste of neem leaves and apply on the targeted pimples. If you cannot get fresh neem leaves, try to get some dried bottled neem leaves, steep for 10 minutes in warm water and use as a paste. Apply pranacharya face glow on your face for 15 minutes then wash it with warm water.

I am 21 years old, I have some infection on the back side of my scalp due to lice. Wat shall I do now?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Treatment is needed only if you see one or more live lice. Empty eggshells (nits) do not always mean that you are infested with lice. Nits can stick to hair even when lice are gone (for example, after treatment that kills the lice). Currently, there are five main recommended options for clearing head lice: -- Dimeticone 4% lotion (trade name: Hedrin). --Isopropyl myristate and cyclomethicone solution (trade name: Full Marks Solution). --Coconut, anise and ylang ylang (CAY) spray. --Malathion 0.5% aqueous liquid (has various trade names). --Wet combing using the Bug Buster comb and method (see separate leaflet called Wet Combing Treatment for Head Lice for more detail). The treatment chosen may depend on your personal preference, and what you have tried before (if appropriate). Each treatment has a good chance of clearing head lice if applied or done correctly and if all affected people in the household are treated at the same time.

Hello, it's always better to stick to one doctor rather than keep on changing different doctors. If your mother has got relief in her knee pain, better go to the same doctor and describe each and everything in detail. (as taking different medicines from different doctors can cause interference in proper treatment of the case) no, the skin problem is not because of switching from allopathy to homoeopathy treatment!

Water melon juice: Prepare watermelon juice in a juicer which does not separate the pulp but converts it into semi liquid so that it can be taken as a part of juice. Cut some watermelon in small pieces of less than half inch. Mix with juice. Have some mint leaves, duly washed and cut. Pour the juice in glasses and garnish with mint leaves. Serve chilled. This delicious juice is a mine full of antioxidants, nutrients and fiber. If desired, one can also add some lemon juice and salt.

The soap is just to keep the skin clean and hygienic. So any soap is ok. Rest everything is only a marketing strategy by followed by companies to promote their products. So you are free to choose any soap that you like.

Apply acnovin cream on the spots before going to bed. 2. Lodhradi churna-use this powder as a face pack mixed with rose water. 3. Cap Tiktamrith-1 cap thrice a day after food. For 1 month. Tips:- 1. Clean & clear the face at least 3 times a day. 2. Keep the face oil free. 3. Avoid heavy fast & junk food stuffs. 4. Avoid spicy & more salty food. 5. Don’t handle the acne like using nails and all. 6. Instead of soap one can use the herbal face pack to clean the face. 7. Don’t rub the face offenly while face wash. 8. Take plenty of fruits

Hi lybrate-user, I would recommend you to use raw oats for that mix with water and rub on your scars for 10 min. After 10 min wash off with normal water. Do it twice a week. OR You could also use tomato pulp and put some lemon juice to in it. OR Aloevera If you wants to know more contact me again.

You can take cord liver oil capsule daily. * Take more anti oxidant foods like fruits (Apple, grapes, melon) and citrus fruits. * Make paste of Papaya and apply this paste on face & exposed body parts and leave it for 15 minutes. It brightens the skin and lower melanin content. For fair skin: • Apply one teaspoon Besan with one teaspoon of curd and a pinch of haldi (turmeric) mix it with water then apply for 15 minutes then rinse off it with water Once a week. • Drink 2-3 liters of water everyday to get hydrated & glowing skin. • Mash half banana mix it with 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice and half teaspoon of sandalwood powder mix it well and make smooth paste apply it for 10 minutes then rinse off with water.
