Hello. Start hair vitamin tab kerablak after breakfast and tab keraglo after dinner for 3 to 6 months to prevent further greying. Have more proteins in diet. Avoid stress. Get investigations like hb, tsh, vit b12 and d3 done. Apply altris gel or melitane gel on scalp daily evening for 6 months. It may stimulate hair root pigment cells to reduce greying.

Medicines can not bring you confidence back nor can they improve complexion. For you to be happy and fairer you need to make new friends, or meet your old ones again. Talk to your brother or sister about your feelings. Attend some parties. All anger and anxiety will vanish.

I have a problem of pimples on my face. I have dry skin. So tell me the solution of this problem.
Homeopathy for Dry Skin The purpose of skin care in homeopathy is to provide necessary vital nutrients to the skin to keep it nourished and moisturised. Dry skin is observed due to lack of lipids in the epidermis, formed because of excessive bathing with hot water and harsh soaps. Application of topical moisturising lotions however maybe recommended, but the underlying root cause is lack of healthy fats in the diet. Hence, consumption of olive oil, nuts, avocadoes and omega -3 rich fatty fish varieties are suggested as a part of the treatment plan for dry skin types. Aloe sap comprising of moisturising properties can be used for dry, oily and combination skin types. While Green apples could cause irritation on a dry skin, avocadoes can only worsen the condition in oily skin types.Skin conditions like Acne,acne scars, hyperpigmentation, ageing skin due to diseases like psoriasis, eczema, allergic rashes, urticarial rashes, , skin discoloration, ulcers and other skin disorders of mild or serious nature find a perfect cure by homoeopathy without side effects. ..consult me by clicking on consult option for homoepathic treatment

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 when ever 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. Kindly note that this medication may not be sufficient enough to take care of your problem. These medicines are based on the symptoms of your diseased condition & these medicines need to be complemented by further deep-acting remedies in order to permanently eliminate the underlying cause of the disease. So I would suggest you to consult me privately via lybrate as it is very necessary to diagnose the proper underlying cause of your problem if you are wishing for a permanent relief from your problems. A permanent annihilation of the underlying cause of the disease will not only provide you relief from your troubles but it will also cease any chance of further relapse of that particular disease condition.

Shampoos and creams may act temporarily and hence should not be used daily . Hair fall is natural upto some extent . If there is severe nutritional deficiency or any major illness, the hairs falls faster for some time and again grows back with time . Other times it is genetics which is causing baldness . So proper food intake is the secret behind good hair growth .
