Hi lybrate-user Yes there are certain natural ways of removing blackheads from nose. Steam your face and den scrub it with powdered rice with milk to make it a thick paste which acts as a natural scrub. Also you can put raw egg white on your nose and then apply a thin sheet of tissue on it, keep it for 15 mins let it dry. It will become stiff. Then gently peel it off. This will also remove blackheads from nose. Takcare.

Hair loss, also known as alopecia or baldness, refers to a loss of hair from the head or body. Baldness can refer to general hair loss or male pattern hair loss. Hair loss and hypotrichosis have many causes including androgenetic alopecia, fungal infection, trauma (e.g. Due to (trichotillomania), radiotherapy, chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies (e.g. iron deficiency), and autoimmune diseases (e.g. alopecia areata. Hair loss severity occurs across a spectrum with extreme examples including alopecia totalis (total loss of hair on the head) and alopecia universalis (total loss of all hair on the head and body). The most common cause of alopecia is *Androgenetic alopecia (male-pattern or female-pattern hair loss) *Androgenetic alopecia is an androgen-dependent hereditary disorder in which dihydrotestosterone plays a major role. This form of alopecia may eventually affect up to 80% of white men by the age of 70 (male-pattern hair loss) and about half of all women (female-pattern hair loss). Other common causes of hair loss are *Drugs (including chemotherapeutic agents) *Infection (eg, tinea capitis, kerion, cellulitis of the scalp) *Systemic disorders (disorders that cause high fever, SLE, endocrine disorders, and nutritional deficiencies) *Alopecia areata Less common causes are primary hair shaft abnormalities, autoimmune diseases, heavy metal poisoning, and rare dermatologic conditions. Homoeopathy offers best and permanent solution for hair loss ,the medicine should be selected based on symptom totality and correct individualisation, some medicines such as Sulphur, Lycopodium, Merc Sol, Nitricum acidum, Calcarea carb, Graphites,acid fluoric are very effective in treating hair loss.

You have Phimosis, which in your age, the foreskin should still be forming so may be easy to treat. Stretching exercises, when erect just pull it back as far as it will go and hold for 5 mins. Do this a few times daily.. in the shower helps, and you should see results within days/weeks. Could also try, if its possible to pull back a bit, pull it back, grab the glans( top cap of penis) with two fingers and roll the foreskin up over the two fingers as far as it will go (when the ring of skin turns white). hold it there for 5 mins. Lubricant helps with this!. . It's fairly common, and this should help. Also try rubbing vitamin E( Add few drops of olive oil )around the top and inside the foreskin, which may help elasticate it.

I have a lump inside my butt cheek for several weeks, and it won’t go away. I was applying some medical creams, but they didn’t work. The lump is hard, painful and red. First I thought it was just a big pimple, but a pimple would disappear long time ago. My hygiene habits are excellent, so comments on this subject would be unnecessary. It crossed my mind that many hours of sitting in. Maybe the sitting has worsened my circulation and caused a lump.

You are most probably having bacterial infection. You will need to take antibiotics to decrease the inflammation along with application of antibiotic cream.

Steroid abuse: this cream contains few harmful ingredients and hence it may cause a lot of unwanted side effects like irritation, hair growth on face, thinning of skin, wrinkles on face, pimples and even steroid dependence. You should stop using it immediately. If your skin has become addicted to it, leave it gradually. Apply alternate days for a week, then twice a week for next week and then stop. Never use any over the counter cream on your face without consulting your dermatologist.

When you are suffering from hair loss, the first thing is you should focus on the food what you eat. Many people often goes for various hair care products but it doesn't get results well. What really matters is what you eat. The best way to prevent hair loss and to improve the hair growth is to keep a close eye on what you are eating. Here we list a super foods that promotes good hair growth and prevents hair loss. Sunflower seeds: sunflower seed are the rich sources of copper, zinc, magnesium, calcium, iron, biotin, protein, omega-6 fatty acids. These supplements helps to prevent the hair loss. A handful of raw sunflower seeds were enough for healthy hair growth. But don't eat in excess because too much consumption of sunflower seeds can even lead to hair loss. Nuts: nuts are very important to promote hair growth as well as to prevent hair loss. Nuts like peanuts, almonds, cashew nuts, walnuts contains wide variety of protein, vitamins, minerals, iron, zinc, healthy fats which helps to prevent the hair loss. So make sure to take nuts in your diet. Eggs: for a healthy hair growth, protein is a primary constituent. As we know egg is a good source of protein. Eggs also having biotin and b vitamins which helps in controlling hair loss. So try to eat atleast 1 egg/day. Spinach: it is a good source of vitamins like b, c and e, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids, iron and it is enriched with a good amount of nutrients and antioxidants, which helps to promote hair growth. Carrots: many people known that carrots are good for eye sight but it also good for hair growth. Beta-carotene is the important nutrient that carrots have which promotes healthy hair growth.

Hello. White patches/ dots on your skin are a common type of depigmented skin lesion associated with an infection, allergy, or autoimmune disorder. One common cause of white spots, or hypopigmentation, is a fungal infection of the skin known as tinea versicolor (associated with other symptoms, such as itching or dryness on or around the white patches). This fungal infection is not contagious and can be treated easily with over-the-counter medications. The white spots and patches can also be because of deficiency of vitamin d (for which 15-20 minutes of exposure to early morning sunlight without sunscreen is needed, 3-4 times a week). Or else they could be idiopathic (i. E, without any cause). Vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder which can be treated with homoeopathic medicines, but chances of relapses are also there. Please tell me other symptoms like about sensation on the area, since how long do you have this patch, any family history of white patch, etc. Meantime, you can start with homoeopathic medicines - cina 1m/ one dose daily at night and ars. Sulph. Flavum. 200/ twice daily for 20 days (it is safe). Apply a good brand's sunscreen with spf 40 on the skin (specially on the white patches/ spots) 20-30 minutes before going out under the sunscreen and reapply it after 3-4 hrs. Again.

They are supposed to be effective and quite good. Results though are ambiguous. However, they need to be continued for 4-6 months for the result to be visible. Generally, there is decrease in the progression of the problem and there may be some repigmentation of the hair.

Hi. Let me you about hairfall. In layman's language, hairfall can be divided into 2 types - temporary hairfall and permanent which is called 'Hairloss' rather and leads to bald areas of smooth and shiny surface. In temporary hairfall, hair grows back again from the same hair root, but in case of permanent hairloss, because of formation of DHT (Di- Hydro -Testosterone) around hair root it gets choked up which subsequently affects the blood supply to the hair and thus hair root is lost forever. Many factors are responsible formation of this DHT or hairloss- hereditary, post-illness/ ailment, post-delivery, post- chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies, hormaonal imbalance, insufficient sleep, sudden loss of weight, stress/ tensions/ excessive anger any other underlying diseases, etc. Take diet rich in protein like non-veg., eggs, pulses, legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. walnut and almonds), iron-rich food like green vegetables, also take flaxseeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smooking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) Avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you FIT and YOUNG!! Also, take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200/ twice a day for 1 month and revert me back.
