 Nails - How To Keep Them Healthy?

Having beautiful nails is not necessary only for looking good, but they need to be clean for health purposes too. Just like your skin and hair, you need to take care of them so that they are healthy looking. They are exposed to the environment and there are many ways by which your nails get damaged. Thus, here are a few tips that are easy to follow to keep your nails look great and keep them healthy!

  1. Care for your cuticles: During a manicure avoid trimming your cuticles. They are meant to be the barrier for bacteria and when you cut them, it may result in painful infections. With the help of a cuticle pusher, you may moisten them and push them back, but do not cut them totally. Even when you are having a conventional manicure make sure that you protect your cuticles by dabbing some olive or almond oil so that the reaction of chemicals that come in contact with your skin becomes minimum.
  2. Use moisturizer: Even your nails need to be moisturized and hence, while you rub lotion on your hands put some of it on your nail and cuticles too. By using hand wash regularly you tend to dry your nail bed. Thus, after every wash, it is necessary that you use some moisturizer. If possible, use some coconut oil for rubbing on your nails. You can use cuticle cream too and rubbing that every day on your cuticles will help in keeping them moisturized.
  3. Provide nutrients to your nails: Yes, even your nails need nutrients to be healthy. Take biotin that is also referred as vitamin H. Studies reveals that it helps in preventing nails from becoming brittle. It may not grow your nails faster, but it provides the necessary support to your nails so that they do not split, crack or tear away.
  4. Wear gloves to protect your nails: Make it a practice to wear gloves while you are working with detergents, whether during dishwashing or anything else. Detergents have harsh chemicals that will leach away nutrients and moisture from your nails. Thus, it’s better to protect before than taking care later. “Prevention is better than cure” you know!
  5. Avoid using harsh polish: In nail polishes, you will find toxic chemicals like toluene, dimethyl, dibutyl phthalate, and camphor, diethyl phthalates, and formaldehyde. These nail polishes are dangerous for health. Instead, try alternatives that do not contain such chemicals and are easy on your nails. Before you purchase them read the label carefully.

After following all these, if still, you are not satisfied with the quality or health of your nails, it is better to get advice from an expert.

Fever - How To Get Rid Of It?

The fever itself isn’t a disease but a symptom of a disease. It is generally caused when the immune system heats itself to fight the infections that enter our body. One of the most common reasons a person catches a fever is due to Influenza or the common cold.

Though fever is a common symptom, it can aggravate very quickly if not taken care of properly. This article will educate patients on how to take care of themselves if they have a fever. The first and foremost step of taking care is to go to a doctor and get a proper diagnosis.

Upon a proper diagnosis, one can determine the kind of fever they are having. If someone has a fever due to diseases like Malaria then the course of action will be quite different. However, the following are the common steps for most of the fevers:

Do’s: While Having a Fever

  • The first step is to keep a proper check of the temperature every 2 hours. For that, it is advisable to keep a thermometer handy. For better accuracy, it is better to carry a digital one.
  • The next step is to keep the patient hydrated as fever usually leads to loss of appetite. This can cause dehydration and loss of nutrients.
  • Drinking water isn’t enough to battle dehydration, which is why the patient will need to take the ORS solution every 15 minutes.
  • If the temperature rises, one should soak a cloth in cool water and put it on the forehead for a few minutes.
  • If the temperature keeps rising, the patient should take Paracetamol only.
  • Get a blood check by calling a local pathology technician and subsequently send the report to the doctor to get a proper diagnosis.

Don'ts: While Having a Fever

  • Don’t take an Antibiotic unless the doctor prescribes it.
  • The fever may cause temporary body pain and stiffness; don’t take Ibuprofen and other painkillers to get rid of it.
  • Don’t take any kind of NSAIDS without doctor’s supervision.
  • Don’t take any kind of dairy products or junk food.
  • Don’t starve because of the loss of appetite.
  • Don’t agitate by doing any kind of household work or exercise.
  • Don’t sleep with the air conditioning on.
  • Avoid drinking and smoking while having a fever.
  • If the doctor prescribed antibiotics, don’t quit halfway. It is important that one must complete the course of antibiotics.
  • Don’t take a bath while having a fever; it is better to clean the body with a soaked cloth or sponge.


Though fever is a fairly common disease, the treatment can go haywire if the usage of certain medicines isn’t done properly. Following the above instructions will help to take care of when someone has a fever and will help to get better. However, if the fever isn’t going down after 2-3 days, one should see a doctor immediately.

Depression - How To Tackle It In Kids?

Depression - How To Tackle It In Kids?

In today’s times, depression has spread within the society like an epidemic. People with depression wake up feeling low, spend their day drowning in anxiety and end the day without any hopes for the future. Although the symptoms may be different, children are not safe from the clutches of depression either. It is more difficult for them to express their anxiety and helplessness due to their lack of understanding of the concept of depression.

Five percent of children suffer from depression worldwide. If not taken care of, the depression can spiral out of control and potentially ruin the prospects of the child as adults. If you start noticing your child slowly retreating into their own world or unable to control their emotions, you must evaluate if your child is suffering from depression and take steps to help them.

Signs of depression in children:

The role of parents in helping a child overcome depression is of primary importance. While occasional bouts of feeling low and cranky is a part of growing up, extended periods of certain signs are cause for concern. They include:

• Being aggressive, sad or unhappy most of the time
• Saying negative things about themselves
• Lack of energy and interest in games
Anxiety, irritability, and fear of social situations
• Disrupted dietary patterns
• Self-harming tendencies

Coping with depression

• It is important to notice unnatural behaviour in children and talking to them about it in a patient, non-judgemental and understanding manner. If the child is unwilling to talk, respect their space and broach the subject later.
• Depression doesn’t indicate the parents are failing in their roles. The cause of depression can be anything from genetic vulnerability to physical health and the immediate environment. The best course of action is addressing the cause and helping the child overcome depression.
• Often it is best to seek the professional help of a therapist or counsellor the child trusts. Forms of therapy including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Interpersonal Psychotherapy can help the child through play therapy, family therapy, and peer therapy.
• Giving the child a conducive atmosphere at home and in school is crucial. You might want to explore the possibilities of bullies or other factors in school, especially if your child is making excuses to not attend school and has deteriorating grades.
• Invest more time in their daily activities and engage them in activities of their choice to relieve their stress and channel their anxiety better.

The average age of appearance of depression in a child is progressively falling lower. In the face of such times, the child needs the parents more than ever to feel safe. It is easy for parents to deny depression in their children as the other alternative is heart-breaking. However, early diagnosis and intervention help the child to combat depression more effectively. A combination of medication, therapy, and support of the family is the best way of helping a child deal with depression and become a happier and successful adult.

Hello, thanks for the query. Madam, hypothyroidism is a hormone (thyroxine) deficiency disorder. It means your thyroid gland is either not producing enough or nil of thyroxine (t4). This is an essential hormone for multiple metabolic functions in the body including proper functioning of brain. Hence it has to be supplemented every day in specific quantity depending upon the need of each patient. Therefore, only remedy is to take adequate quantity of levothyroxine every day for lifetime. Plus tsh needs to be maintained around 3 to 4 mu/l. Amla powder has absolutely nothing do with synthesis of thyroxine by thyroid gland. Thyroid gland takes up iodine from food (salt or water) and combines it with tyrosine an amino acid and synthesizes t4. I hope you understand.

Chemical Peels - Types Of It!

Chemical Peels - Types Of It!

A spotless, flawless complexion is what we all crave for. But owing to several environmental and genetic factors, your skin gets affected and gradually loses its glamour. Chemical peeling is a cosmetic treatment used to improve your skin’s appearance. Chemical peeling can effectively treat the following skin conditions-

  1. Fine lines and wrinkles
  2. Age spots
  3. Sun tan
  4. Acnes and scars
  5. Melasma
  6. Hyperpigmentation

Types of Chemical Peels-
Chemical peels are of three kinds, namely-

  1. Superficial/light peel- perforates the outer layer of the skin by using mild acids such as alpha-hydroxy acid.
  2. Medium peel- this is more effective for repairing damaged cells. Medium peels use glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid to penetrate the outer and middle layers of your skin.
  3. Deep peel- uses trichloroacetic acid or phenol to reach the middle layer of the skin and repair skin cells that are damaged.

How is the treatment done?
Chemical peel is an out-patient procedure, meaning the patient does not have to stay overnight at the hospital after the treatment is done. Here is how chemical peels are done-

  1. First, your face will be cleansed and your eyes will be covered with a gauze or goggle.
  2. Your doctor will apply a chemical solution typically made of trichloroacetic acid or glycolic acid or salicyclic acid (depending on the type of chemical peel you opt for) on the face. The solution is left on for a few minutes.
  3. Once the treated area begins to whiten, your doctor will apply cold compress or a neutralizing solution on the skin.
  4. For patients opting for a deep chemical peel, local anesthesia or a sedative is given to numb the treated portion.

Post-treatment Guidelines-
After the procedure, patients will likely notice redness or swelling on the treated portion. For that, you must follow these measures-

  1. Apply an ointment, say petroleum jelly, on the skin
  2. Apply ice packs to soothe the skin
  3. Use over-the-counter painkillers to get rid of the pain (as prescribed by the doctor)
  4. The new-age chemical peels usually take about two weeks to replace the damaged skin with healthier, smooth skin, and the best thing about the procedure is that there is no age bar. Anybody can opt for this treatment.

So now that you know why chemical peels are the secret to perfect skin, what are you waiting for? Consult a dermatologist, feel free to have a detailed discussion on the skin condition you want to get treated for, and bid adieu to age spots an dark patches, forever.

FUE For Hair Transplantation - Know Merits Of It!

FUE For Hair Transplantation - Know Merits Of It!

FUE or Follicular Unit Extraction is a very popular hair transplant technique. When this technique was introduced in 2002, it was considered as the breakthrough technology in the hair transplant industry. In the Follicular Unit Extraction method, a small ‘punch’ is used for extracting follicular units from the scalp. There is no visible scarring because the follicular units are directly extracted from the scalp one by one.

There are various advantages of this highly evolved hair transplant technique.

  1. Invisible Scars: In Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT), linear incisions are made on the back of the head. It results in long linear scars, which are difficult to hide. However, in Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), round, small punches are made on the back of the head. These small punches which consist of one follicular unit leave dot-shaped scars on the head. It is easy to hide these dot-shaped scars as compared to the long scars from FUT. Even if you have short hair, you can easily conceal the scars from FUE. If you shave your head completely, only then will the scars be visible.
  2. Minimal pain: The pain after the procedure of FUE is minimal as small punches are made on the back of the head. During FUT, an incision is made particularly on the skin where hair bulbs are present. The incision can cause pain for several days. In the procedure of FUE, you won’t need medication for pain after the procedure.
  3. Less time for healing: The small punches do not take a lot of time for healing, unlike the long linear scars from FUT. As there are no scalpels and stitches involved in the procedure of FUE, the wounds will naturally heal within a few days.
  4. Natural looking hairline: You get a head full of thicker hair and a natural looking hairline after undergoing Follicular Unit Extraction treatment. The transplanted hair that you will get after FUE will look completely natural.
  5. Less complication: The process of FUE is not only less painful but also has less risk of infections. Moreover, your routine won’t get disturbed as the FUE method requires only a few hours. Therefore, you can go back home the same day and get back to your normal routine.

Thus, you can see that there are so many advantages of the Follicular Unit Extraction method. Plenty of people face the problem of hair loss these days. FUE is a very successful hair transplant technique that can solve your problem easily. Therefore, if you are embarrassed because of your hair loss problem, opt for FUE.
