My mother has been suffering from extreme itching on her skin for the past 1 yr. Nobody has been able to diagnose her condition. Every doctor we go to give us lotions or external medicine that does not help. She had wysolone for 2 months that did not help. Docs have given her anti fungal, anti parasite cream but none have helped. She doesn't even sleep at night due to itching. She has been a patient of rheumatoid arthritis for 20 yrs. Her skin has no external signs of any kind. Please somebody help us. We are desperately waiting for a cure. Doctors always go for steroids but they do not help. Her skin is very clear but itching is unbearable. She has been taking methotrexate and other related arthritis medications for past 10 years or so. Please help us.

Itching is a normal body response to protect us from harmful external substances or parasites such as insect bites. There are many possible causes but for some people with pruritus no obvious cause can be found. Pruritus may be localised to one area or generalised over the skin. Most common cause of itching is dry skin.  It may also be caused by medicines or by internal diseases affecting the body. When pruritus occurs due to an internal disorder, we have to treat the disorder first as most of the time it will cure the itching as well. If the itching started after you started taking  particular food items then prick test can be done to find the cause of allergy. A few general measures like avoid scratching the affecting area, applying cold compresses go a long way in reducing the itching. Avoid using any over the counter anti itch creams as they may increase your problem moisturizers if they are not suitable to your skin type.

Do not use strong shampoo and conditioner on scalp. You can use any mild shampoo to wash your scalp. You should concentrate on your diet to get healthy hairs. Eat nutritious diet and diet rich in iron. Check your scalp for dandruff because it also causes heavy hair fall.

Hello lybrate-user Chemical peels are absolutely safe as long as a qualified Dermatologist does it. Even though it is called chemical peel, it contains fruit acids.

Why my hair change to white please give some suggestion and instruction to get back my hair to black.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Why my hair change to white please give some suggestion and instruction to get back my hair to black.
Causes for Premature Grey Hair • Graying or whitening of hair earlier than expected usually runs in the family. • Long periods under stress due to work intensity and tension. • A serious disease like typhoid can also act as the catalyst for graying of hair. • Intake of too much of alcohol, tea and coffee can cause graying of hair as well. • Eating too many oily and fried foods is another reason for graying of hair. • Using excessive amount of spices in your food. • Integrating too many food items that are sour and acidic in your diet. • Not having essential nutrients like copper in your food can also cause grey hair as melanin’s production gets hit due to the deficiency. • Lack of Vitamin C and Vitamin B in your diet. Natural Remedies to Reduce Grey Hair 1. Coconut Oil and Curry Leaves Coconut oil and curry juice remain one of the best natural remedies for hair strengthening. Using coconut oil with curry leaves works best and the remedy brings result if the oil is applied consistently over the scalp for 90 days. Just massage the mixture for 15-20 minutes into the scalp. Proper application generally leads to reduction in dandruff and hair loss while also helps in thickening your hair and in enhancing black hair growth. 2. Alma, Curd and Lemon Juice Pack Alma powder works very well with curd and lemon juice and is extremely useful in enhancing grey hair growth and in limiting grey hair. The pack of Alma powder, curd and lemon juice should be applied on the scalp for around 45 minutes before being washed off with lukewarm water. For best results, consistent usage of the pack every alternate day for a period of 90 days is recommended. 3. Almond Oil and Alma Juice Almond oil and Alma juice is one of the most tried and tested natural remedies for reducing graying of hair and for aiding in black hair growth. The overall mixture is great for general health of your hair. It works best when it is massaged over the scalp for 15 minutes for a consistent period of time. Equal amount of almond oil and Alma juice is preferred. 4. Buttermilk and Curry Leaves Buttermilk and curry leaves juice is a preventive remedy that helps with both graying of hair and with loss of hair. Followed as a cultural ritual in the villages in Kerala, this remedy has worked for people of all ages. The mixture is formed by adding buttermilk and curry leaves juice in an equal amount in any small vessel before boiling it mildly. The mixture formed is then applied over the scalp for around 30-35 minutes before being washed off by using lukewarm water. 5. Sesame Oil and Carrot Juice Sesame oil and carrot juice is mixed with Methi seed powder before being left for drying under the sun. After 21 days, the mixture is deemed ready for application. Gentle massaging of the mixture over the scalp for 15-30 minutes every day for a period of 90 days brings the best results. 6. Onion Juice Onion juice is a remedy that was used before hair dyes were introduced to deal with grey and white hair. Simply rubbing onions or onion juice over your scalp can get great results. However, you will have to deal with the smell somehow if you would use this remedy to reverse the process of graying of hair. Natural Home Remedies for Premature Graying of Hair: How to Prevent Grey Hair Having seen the natural remedies that can reverse graying of hair and that can increase growth of black hair, let’s see the change in habits that can help you ensure that you don’t get grey hair anytime in the future either. 1. Quit Smoking The major reason for growth of grey hair prematurely is that the body starts to age prematurely. Smoking is a bad lifestyle choice and causes the body to age before time. The habit leads not only to grey hair but also to a wide variety of complications in life and therefore, quitting it remains integral. 2. Avoid Junk Food, Coffee and Alcohol Coffee, alcohol and junk food all are devitalizing and excessive usage of these items usually leads to premature aging. As a consequence, you start to look older than normal and your jet black hair start to turn grey. So, if you’re serious about preventing grey hair growth then you would have to avoid junk food, coffee and alcohol as much as possible. 3. Ease Stress As already mentioned in the causes, too much stress can cause premature grey hair. People who work consistently under pressure, stress and tension should try yoga and other relaxing techniques so as to avoid premature aging and graying of hair. 4. Exercise A healthy and fit body works naturally to keep everything in shape. Exercising regularly can keep you fit and healthy and can improve blood flow to your scalp as well. This results in better hair growth and in prevention of graying of hair as well. 5. Keep a Healthy Diet A healthy diet ensures that your body gets all the nutrients it needs to function properly. A proper diet so as to prevent grey hair should incorporate food items that are rich in minerals and vitamin A along with iron. Yogurt and cereals are rich in these nutrients while green vegetables and yellow fruits are equally great sources too. Such a diet aided with regular water intake usually ensures that you don’t get premature grey hair. 6. Take Supplements Another measure which can help with preventing grey and white hair is the use of such supplements which are rich in the 8 B complex vitamins. You can either buy a multivitamin that comes with all of the B complex family vitamins or you can get a pill that has all the B complex vitamins for this purpose. However, if you think that such supplements would be out of your range then you should go after a product that has Vitamin B5 as deficiency of Vitamin B5 is one of the major reasons for premature graying of hair.

Dear lybrate-user hairfall is usually caused by a combination of various factors. You must consult a dermatologist and get a scalp analysis done to determine the pattern of hair loss. Meanwhile you can start taking multivitamins containing biotin, folic acid etc. For dandruff it is important to use a medicated anti dandruff shampoo at least twice a week for 8 weeks.

I have lip vitiligo on my lower lip. It has developed in less than one year time. I am 43 years male. Don't have any habit of chewing or smoking or drinking. None of my parents or grand parents have this problem in my family. Kindly suggest suitable medicine.

Hello lybrate-user, Vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder. It is an acquired disorder where there are autoantibodies against pigment producing cell leading to depigmentation. It's not necessary to have a family history. You should use sunscreen over the lips and tacrolimus ointment 0.03% ointment twice daily. Try using this and see if it helps.

Hi effective method to treat dandruff would be to combine 2 tablespoons of fresh apple juice with 2 tablespoons of warm water. Dab this on the hair and keep it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. Do this for once or twice a week to cure dandruff. Apply ketoconazole lotion on your scalp once in a week. Apply bhringraj oil on your scalp then give hot water fomentation. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take pranacharya allergin capsule 1-1 twice a day. Take lots of proteins like soyabean. Egg white. Etc.avoid tea. Coffee.spicy food. Fermented food. Junk food. Apply only ayurvedic shampoo on your scalp. Do pranayama early morning.

As you explained your profession and change in environment since 1 month, if you are relocated to the work place it might be change in the atmosphere. Secondly may be your diet is lacking on the part of fat contains as ghee, butter and other substances which keeps skin moisturized from inside and prevent dryness and some fungal infections. Do take proper amount of water which keeps the skin hydrated. Be cautious that over hydration may causes other health problems.

Hi, 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. Prevention: -Take healthy food only and avoid unhealthy ones (although sebaceous glands are not excretory glands then as well!) as what you eat is reflected on your face! -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension as it encourages secretion of stress hormone in the body as thus affects skin or any other tissue of the body. -Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water in a day. -Take 6-8hrs. Of sound sleep everyday. -Don't use others towels, handkerchief on your face as well as never share yours. -Never ever rub your face as it damages the skin (even towel should be dab on skin softly) and break outs of acne get worsened! -Maintain hygiene, wash your face 2-3times in a day, changes the pillow covers, bed sheet daily, use cotton bed sheet only (try to sleep on your back). 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 30 days.

Hello lybrate-user Hair fall problems can be due to various reasons. They can be reversible or they can be irreversible in nature. As you have shifted to a new location your hair fall problems could be due to change in water, change in climatic condition, your adaptation to a new place could also give your hair fall problems. Make sure that there is no hard water as this can also cause hair fall problems. If the hairfall is at a severe level and your scalp is becoming visible then you have to take steps soon before it is too late as this generally suggests that it will take you towards baldness While you are making note of the above things its important that you do not compromise on your diet and sleeping habits.
