Hi Lybrate user in Ayurveda I suggest you some facts that ojus dhatu is responsible for glow of our face and it is also responsible for immunity of our body and when ojus dhatu get weakened by our bad habbit (I.e sukra dhatu chhaya ), improper nourishment of our seven vital dhatu then our ojus get weakened. So I suggest you some medicine for initial management which work on root cause of your problems. 1- syu Liv 52 ds two teaspoonful twice a day. 2-saptdhatu pustikar churna 5 gram with cow milk morning and evening. 3-amalaki rasayan one gram twice a day. 4-apply alovera gel mix with 5 drops of Tulsi ark 2-3 times a day. 5-use herbal neem face wash. Avoid red meat and egg, spicy food. Take all medicine after meal. For 15 days. Then consult me for further assistance. Wishing you a healthier life.

Use a salicylic acid/ glycolic acid based face wash. Get your comedones extracted regularly. Use a water based moisturizer, even oily skin needs hydration. scrub your face two times in week. Use a mud mask weekly. Take salicylic acid or glycolic acid peels every fifteen days or month to improve skin texture, control acne and reduce scars and marks. Take a well balanced nutritious diet and exercise daily. Avoid face massages or application of greasy cosmetics and oils.

C- Section - Understanding The Risks!

Orthopedist, Gurgaon
C- Section - Understanding The Risks!

C-section or Caesarean section is a surgery performed to deliver a baby. The baby is taken out from the abdomen through an incision in the abdominal wall. This surgery is performed when there is some sort of physical difficulty in natural childbirth through the vagina. Other reasons for performing a C-section are when the mother is carrying more than one baby, or the health of the baby is in danger. It could also be because of an undesirable fetal position, or when the mother is physically unable to push the baby out of the uterus.

Procedure followed in C- Section

The procedure is most often done when the mother is in her senses and awake. However, epidural or spinal anaesthesia is provided to numb the body from chest to the feet, before the surgery is performed.

An incision is made on the lower abdomen, above the pubic area. A cut is made through the uterus and amniotic sac. The baby is pulled out from this opening. The umbilical cord is cut and cleaned. The fluids are cleaned from the baby’s mouth and nose. The infant’s breathing rate, heart rate and other vitals are kept under observation.

Recovery from a C-section can take several weeks. The stitch wounds need to heal, including the recovery of pelvic muscles. It is important to walk around and do some very light exercises to boost the healing procedure. Doctors may prescribe painkillers in some cases and advice on effective post-operative care. Though the surgical procedure is quite safe now, with the use of highly advanced technology, there are risks that cannot be entirely ignored. 

 

Risks associated with C-section

  1. Infections: Any surgery has some risk of infection associated to it. In the case of a C-section, an infection can occur around the site of incision that may rapidly spread in the uterine wall and other internal pelvic organs.

  2. Haemorrhage: Blood refuses to clot and dangerously high quantity of blood is lost in the process. In such a case, it requires immediate transfusion and intensive care.

  3. Injuries: The mother or the baby, both have a risk of getting injured during the surgery. Although these are rare, but the infant may suffer nicks and cuts while being manually pulled out from the womb. Other organs of the mother located near the pelvis may suffer minor or major wounds.

After the C-section, the mother and child will be retained in the hospital for 2 to 3 days, under intense care and constant monitoring. It is important to exercise and take the medications as advised by the physician to prevent any complication. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

It can remain life longvas this is a tendency not a disease per say. Use a good moisturising cream which should contain urea and lactic acid likw moistrex cream twice a day it will help you to reduce it to a great extent.

Vinegar is a natural exfoliate and you can use either apple cider or white vinegar to exfoliate your skin. Using clean pad, apply some vinegar on the face and rinse it off after five to 10 minutes with cool water. If your skin is sensitive, you can dilute the vinegar with water. You can also freeze the vinegar into cubes or chill it for a cooling effect. This treatment can help control oily skin and acne but you will need to use the vinegar consistently before bed for about two to three weeks for best results. Aloe vera We all know that Aloe Vera has various healing powers. This miracle plant is great for the skin and you can grow it naturally and then slice it to get the gel or purchase the gel from your nearest department store. You can apply aloe gel on your face three times a day and you do not even need to rinse it off.

You should go for few sessions of chemical peel which will help you to get rid of pigmentation around your neck. You may be advised certain topical medication to reduce darkness. Always apply sunscreen whenever you are exposed to sun.

You can use transplanting hair for eyelashes .For dark circles Mix one teaspoon of tomato juice with one and a half teaspoon of lemon juice. Gently apply this mixture on your dark circles and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Rinse it off well with cool water. Follow this remedy twice a day for 2 - 3 weeks to see results.

Skin light has very serious side effects. It contains hydroquinolone which will make your skin dry and more dark once you stop it. Instead use herbal preparation.
