I have acne on my face and my skin is also too much oily which medicine should I get.

Dear, These are the causes of acne: • excessive sebum production (sebum is oily secretion from the gland). • Due to hormonal imbalance. These are the methods & instructions to avoid acne: • To control the sebum secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum production and causes acne. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. * Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Use a face pack of fuller's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin. * Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day. *You can apply cucumber juice or mixed with curd for 5 minutes and rinse with water. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • use a mild moisturiser for your skin.

I have heel cracks for past one week. Its very itchy and paining. Suggest some skin ointment?
It is a kind of fungal infections, most common infections found in skin, they are little difficult to remove bcz they remain in the skin where blood supply is very little, so it will take time to remove. If you want to cure you have to follow few medicines for 1-2 weeks (it is contaminative disease, may spreads to your near & dear one). please upload it’s photo.

What is the safe treatment for fungal infection, except Grisonvinfb, atarax
Please suggest safe medicine.
All antifungals are reasonably safe antibiotics, but grisiofulvin is very outdated one and not preferred these days, newer one include terbinafine itraconazole. But these medicines needs doctors expert advice before you consume them.
