Fungal infection or Ring worm.. when occurs in groin, called as jock itch.. Usually fungal infection is common in moist areas of body like skin folds..It's mostly circular or round in appearance.. May be red or black in colour.. Treatment depending on the type and severity.. Avoid sharing clothes, towels and soap; sweating also increases it..As it has to be differentiated from eczema and infection, its a must to see and confirm the diagnosis for proper treatment..So, please send photos of the affected area by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

First of all, I wud like to suggest you not to self treat acne. Wash your face twice daily to remove impurities, dead skin cells, and extra oil from your skin's surface, avoid touching your face or picking up the pimples and blotches as it further spreads the bacteria. A dietary therapy with the right medications for pimples can also help a lot. Drink lots of water. Consult a dermatologist for proper treatment.

I am 53 years old. For last 17 years I am taking Zyloric tab to control the level of uric acid my kidney and liver function is OK. Can Benzoic acid (homoeopathic medicine) lowers the uric acid. My uric acid level is always between 6 and 7. My cousin also have this problem. What is the difference between Aamvat and Vatarakta.

I am a ayurvedic doctor, so don't know about benzoic acid. Vatrakta is compared with gout and aamvata with rheumatoid arthritis. According to ayurveda you r suffering from vatarakta.

Constipation is due to our bad dietary habbit eating high fibre diet like good amount of salads leafy vegetables. Those who don't take dietary precaution will develop constipation as soon they stop laxatives and take low fibre diet.
