Hi Soham... This is the biggest mistake of the patients that they want to cure pimples by just a cream which is never possible... Like any other skin disease they need to be treated by proper internal medicine which cures it from roots... And Homoeopathic treatment is best. So my suggestion to you is to start proper homoeopathic treatment for that... You can consult any good Homoeopath around you or can consult me through lybrate... Till then just take Berberis Aquifolium Q 10 drops TDs..

It is called hair in-growth. You have in-grown hair near your jaws, you might also get bumps or injuries while shaving. -use a face wash with salicylic acid. -use warm water for shaving -do not reverse shave -moisturize the area, don't leave it dry. -while shaving that area, do not put pressure to shave the hairs inside the skin. Move your razor very softly.

Chapped or dry lips are a common problem that can be painful and unattractive. Common symptoms are dryness, redness, cracking, flaking, and tender or sore lips.Some of the main causes are vitamin deficiency, allergic reaction, dehydration, smoking, excessive licking of lips, sun exposure and harsh weather. Castor oil is good treatment for dry and chapped lips. • Simply apply castor oil to your lips several times a day. • You can also make a soothing treatment using one teaspoon of castor oil, one teaspoon of glycerin and a few drops of fresh lemon juice. Mix it well and apply it on your lips before going to bed. In the morning, wash it off with a cotton ball dipped in lukewarm water. Repeat this daily until your lips are healed. • Homoeopathic LIP BALM ( BAKSON LAB) Apply twice daily

It will take time to fade away pimple marks. You can use home remedies to fade marks without any side effect, it includes: 1) Aloe vera gel-apply aloe vera gel on face leave it for 30 min and you can wash it off and apply good moisturizer. Just mix a few teaspoons of baking soda with enough water to form a thick paste then massage into skin where scars are present. Once applied, you should leave the mixture on for a minute or two. This will allow the soda to cleanse pores and help prevent further blemishes. After a couple of minutes, wash your face in lukewarm water and apply a good natural moisturizer like rose hip seed, jojoba, or olive oil, apply coconut oil on face massage and leave. You can consult a dermatologist if it severe and prolong.

Dear lybrate user, pimples/ acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory skin disease which develops due to blocking of the hair follicles in skin. These blockages occur due to 4 abnormal processes: 1) excess sebum production due to androgens 2) excessive deposition of the protein keratin leading to comedone formation 3) infection of propionibacterium acnes (p. Acnes) bacteria on the hair follicles 4) local release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the skin. Neither can you stop the overproduction of androgen or keratin protein nor can you stop the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals because all these processes takes place internally in your skin. However you can stop the accumulation of p. Acnes bacteria on your skin by preventing your skin from getting oily. Always keep a handkerchief with you wherever you go outside. You should wipe off the slightest amount of sweat from your face as soon as you perspire on entering your room from outside wash your face with an oil-free, non-moisturizing face wash. Take a low carbohydrate diet. Do some exercise daily. Drink a lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation. You can also take homoeopathic calcarea phos 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach also you can apply homoeopathic mother tincture berberis aquifolium q on the dark spots on your skin which are produced after the resolution of the pimples.
