There are n number of reasons for hair problems viz. Washing your hair with hot water, late nights, stress, excessive salt intake. Unless you stop these factors, every medicine is futile. Ayurved Tiktaksheer Basti and Shirodhara therapy can help in your problems.

You can treat most ingrown toenails at home. Here's how: Soak your feet in warm water. Do this for 15 to 20 minutes three to four times a day. Soaking reduces swelling and relieves tenderness. Place cotton or dental floss under your toenail. After each soaking, put fresh bits of cotton or waxed dental floss under the ingrown edge. This will help the nail grow above the skin edge. Apply antibiotic cream. Put antibiotic ointment on the tender area and bandage the toe. Choose sensible footwear. Consider wearing open-toed shoes or sandals until your toe feels better. Take pain relievers. Over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve) may help ease the toe pain.

Hair Routine Stack the odds in your favor by switching up your hair care for the better. Decrease the chemicals and heat. Try to not make it worse by styling, coloring, or bleaching, and go easy on the hair dryer and flat iron.

I have got tiniya (ringworm). It has been more then a month. What shud I do for its cure?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
tart taking homoeopathic medicines - Tellurium 200/ twice daily for 2 weeks. Revert me back there after. Ringworm is caused by a fungus that grows on the skin. Once the fungus is established, it spreads out in rings. The centre of the ring may clear up, while a new ring of infection develops at the edge of the old ring. Fungi are microscopic organisms that can live off the dead tissues of your skin, hair, and nails, much like a mushroom can grow on the bark of a tree. Good personal hygiene helps prevent the spread of ringworm. Teach your child to practise good hygiene and generally not to share combs, brushes, or hats. Children also shouldn't share towels, clothes, or sports equipment that haven't been properly cleaned. Ringworm can also be transmitted from an infected dog or cat, so avoid animals who look mangy or have bald spots in their coats. If you have an animal that you think may have ringworm, take it to the vet for treatment.

What are the main reason for hair loss. Whats all things need to do to avoid that ?

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
What are the main reason for hair loss. Whats all things need to do to avoid that ?
Is your hair loss accompanied with greying of hair and have they become very thin? your hair needs a very high protein well-rounded diet. Hair and nails are the last organs to get nutrition in the body, hence only if all the organs get sufficient nutrition and proteins, only then the remaining nutrition would be used for hairs. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress, current/past dandruff and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I may also prescribe medications like biotin or minox. That are proven to help in hair growth and repair.

Hi make a paste of neem leaves and apply on the targeted pimples. If you cannot get fresh neem leaves, try to get some dried bottled neem leaves, steep for 10 minutes in warm water and use as a paste. Apply pranacharya face glow on your face for 15 minutes then wash it with warm water.

Acne cannot be totally cured. It is because of hormones and dandruff. You should continue using facewash and anti dandruff shampoo prescribed to you. In case of acne start using the anti acne creams immediately.

Oil your hair and scalp thrice a week and wash it the next day. Eat kaju, a handful every alternate day. If problem persists, Homoeopathy can surely help you.
