Check you are diabetic or not, and wear somewhat very loose underwear everyday. If it hard and small cyst with a small pinhole then it is mollasum contagiousum and rest of the other kind we need a photo or exact diagnosis for the cyst. Check as well whether you have any liver problem because those persons will also have intense itching. If the itching cause is fungus then 60% cause is diabetic because diabetic patient easily prone to fungal disease. 40% cause in not a neat underwear and pant which you are wearing so clean your dress and dry it well under sun then you wear it. Take care.

Acne can be very stubborn and you need regular treatment with regulation in diet too. Avoid oily, junk and fast food. Do drink a glass of lemonade early morning empty stomach daily as it will detoxify your body. Take homoeopathic treatment along with it for better and fast results.

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. In order to stop the formation of pimples the aforesaid four causes should be terminated. Now the bitter truth is 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 whenever 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.

Can anyone help me how to get rid of under arms bad smell because everyday I take bath but still it smells.

Sweat itself is virtually odorless, bacteria use it as a breeding ground and multiply rapidly. What you smell is the products related to bacteria breakdown of keratin protein on the surface of your skin. When you work out or move around in the heat or sun, your body produces sweat. Sweating is the body’s way of regulating temperature. When sweat meets the bacteria on the surface of your skin, it produces an odor. That smell is what we call body odor. If you want to be "odor-free" consider the following tips: 1.Apply an antiperspirant at bedtime. This gives the product a chance to work while you sleep and are not sweating. If you apply antiperspirants after showering in the morning, the sweat you accumulate will wash away the product and render you defenseless against daytime sweating. Remember, deodorants do not prevent sweating. They mainly mask the smell of the sweat on your skin. Antiperspirants are chemical agents that reduce sweating. Many antiperspirant preparations also contain a deodorant, which helps to mask the smell. Check the product you use to make sure it contains an antiperspirant. 2.Try a solution of hydrogen peroxide and water to fight body odor. Use 1 teaspoon of peroxide (3%) to 1 cup (8 ounces) of water. Wipe this on affected areas (underarm, feet, etc.) with a washcloth. This may help destroy some of the bacteria that creates odor. 3.Change your diet. Sometimes, fatty foods, oils, or strong-smelling foods such as garlic, curry, and onions, can seep through your pores and cause body odor (always see your doctor or dietician before making drastic dietary changes). 4.Shaving your underarm regularly will help prevent the accumulation of bacteria and can reduce sweat and odor. The best way to fight body odor is through prevention. Proper hygiene like washing well and applying an underarm antiperspirant or deodorant should be enough. If you have excessive sweating talk to your doctor. There are a few treatment options for those with more severe sweating who desire more aggressive treatments. Also, certain medical problems can lead to excessive sweating. Your doctor can make a diagnosis and prescribe treatment. You can consult me online via Lybrate for homeopathic medicines. Made of natural substances and completely safe with no side effects, Homeopathic medicines are given after taking note of unique individual symptoms. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

I do not advise you to color your hair at this age. If your hair is greying, then improve your diet. For beard - use tea tree face wash and toner twice daily. Use aha glow face wash daily use sunscreen with spf 30 daily. Use natural face pack of multani mitti and lemon 2 times a week. You can also use apple cider vinegar with mother for 5 mins after washing your face and splash it clean with water. Most important is diet- do not eat junk, eat more vegetables and fruits especially with vitamin c.

Sweating is not bad for skin. Your skin is getting dark, because you stay in sun for a long time that has created tanning. Mix required amounts of gram flour, lemon juice and curd or yogurt. Apply this paste on tan affected area of forehead and face. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash it with water. This is an exclusive face pack prepared at home to remove tan from your skin in a very easy and effective way. A mixture of egg white, milk cream and honey works excellent against skin tanning. Mix tomato juice with honey or yogurt and apply it daily on skin to remove tanning.

Biotin is good for hair and there are no such higher limits. Minimum requirement is around 30-80 mcg / day I cannot suggest any brand. Advise is to take other vitamins also and you could think of taking homeopathic treatment.
