In boys ,reduced beard growth can be due to following causes: Male Hormone Deficiency , Growth hormone deficiency , Growth factor deficiency, Zinc Deficiency, Testosterone biosynthetic defects. Congenital adrenal hyperplasia, Absent development of hair roots, Alopecia universalis , use of certain drugs etc. The first and foremost thing is to identify the cause by taking a detailed history.The treatment consists of hormone therapy which is given in form of oral tablets or injections or local application as androgen cream

I am 18 years old. I got corn on my right leg. I got it removed thrice by operating it, but was of no use it has again developed on the same place. I have also have another on my knee. I have also applied corn caps but it didnt work too. What should I do?

Corns take time to treat, you should try homoeopathy for that. Take antim crud 30, 3 pills 3 times a day, hypericum 30 if they are painful and salicylic acid for local application on the corn. Take these and you will never face this problem again. Review after 15 days.

Hello, wear loose cotton underclothes. Keep the private parts dry. Change underclothes regularly. It may be due to a fungal infection which thrives in humid, wet environments. Apply k-z cream twice a day on itchy areas for 6 weeks. If no satisfactory improvement, please see a local dermatologist for further assessment.

Commonly dandruff or any other infection and lack of hair nourishment are the main causes for hair fall, many times this is accompanied with pimples or acne. This requires both local application for dandruff or any other infection and local massage with oil to increase circulation and internal consumption of herbal preparations as nutrients for hair growth.

If your hair loss is due to hormonal dysfunction, foods rich in vitamins can help set that right. Vitamin A-rich foods such as mangoes, carrots and other yellow-colored foods can be a rich source of this important vitamin. However, too much intake of vitamin A can cause hair loss too, so be careful to not overdo it. Chickpeas are also said to work miracles in reducing hair loss, since they contain zinc and vitamins A and B6. Soybeans also contain valuable minerals that can aid in growing healthy hair.

Brow Lift Surgery - Should You Use Makeup After that

Brow Lift Surgery - Should You Use Makeup After that

Ageing gracefully is a matter of taking care of the signs of ageing as they begin their advent over our skin, hair and body. While many people turn to the regular use of cosmetics and creams, there are others who go in for regular visits to the salon for various kinds of facials and other such methods. Yet, there are other long-term and more effective methods of dealing with these signs of ageing that may show up on the skin. With the advent of technology in this matter, we now have cosmetic surgery that can help you in dealing with these signs of ageing.

Let us find out about the brow lift surgery

What is it about

This kind of surgery is usually carried out to correct the sagging skin of the forehead, which may eventually manifest as deep wrinkles. This surgery also takes care of the surrounding area like the eyelids and the eyebrows. It has been seen that many people go in for this kind of surgery when they are getting their nose fixed with a cosmetic procedure.

Procedure of Brow lift

There are two kinds of brow lifts that one can choose from, the classic brow lift and the endoscopic brow lift. While the classic lift involves one long cut that goes from your ear level across your hairline, the endoscopic lift needs a few shorter cuts in the scalp, through which a tiny camera may be inserted for the procedure. This involves better recovery and minimal scarring as well. Before the surgery, you may be asked to limit your use of painkillers, if you happen to take them on a regular basis. The doctor will also ask you make a few lifestyle changes where you need to give up smoking, in case you indulge in the same on a regular basis.

Recovery: After the procedure, you will need to keep plenty of ice on hand so that you may apply the same to bring down the pain and bruising. There will be some amount of redness that you may experience for a few days and weeks as well. The cosmetic surgeon may also prescribe some medicated ointments for application to the incisions. You will also have to keep your head elevated with the use of pillows so that you can recover faster. Also, your doctor will instruct you on how best you can change your bandages at home.

Make up: After a brow lift, you may want to use some amount of makeup to cover up the bruising and redness. Yet, you should stay away from these harsh chemicals and too many layers of makeup in order to, give your skin enough time to recover. A light powder will be sufficient to cover up the bruises and keep your skin comfortable. Use make up only a few weeks after the surgery.

Sunscreen is the real fountain of youth
Sunscreen is the real fountain of youth. Get into the habit of applying sunscreen or a lotion with minimum spf 15 to 30 protection daily. Remember that the sun's rays can still be damaging in winter months as it reflects off snow.

Toothpaste should never be applied on skin. You skin has inflammated due to reacrion. Put some ice 2-3 times a day till it gets better. After skin is properly treated, use aloe vera gel daily.

Please note the following in respect to your queries: You should maintain a routine of your work and follow it Take balance diet. Cut-off non-veg items for some weeks completely - especially eggs/chicken/mutton. If you are having any stomach related problem that needs to be sorted out asap. Please take Rhus tox 12 - every 6 hourly. 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 lots of water to avoid constipation. Avoid pricking the pimples or popping the sebum as it may lead to black pigmentation & permanent scar formation. Continue treatment.
