White patches are caused by loss if pigment called vitilligo. It needs treatment by a skin specialist. Some other conditions may cause light patches which still retain pigments. So they are not completely white.

I was using minoxidil 5. 0%, noskurf lotion, ketoconazole 2% scalp solution and triflow conditioner. Now I have stopped. aNd I am using ayurvedic medicinee i. E. Hairoyal capsule, shudhvi and prakruti hair oil. Now my hairfall is double the rate. What shall I do?

I think it might not b due to the prakruthi hair oil, but that is a withdrawal effect of those medicines you hav used for stopping hair fall. Sudden stoppage vl result such kind of aggressive effects. Go n see a physician to get rid of this c/o. Its ideal not to go to those previous rx again. Thats longer usage is not good.

Camouflage Treatment In Vitiligo!

Camouflage Treatment In Vitiligo!

Vitiligo is a long term skin condition characterized by patches of the skin losing their pigment. The patches of skin affected become white and usually have sharp margins. The hair from the skin may also become white. Although this disease is not life threatening or contagious, the disfigurement of vitiligo can be devastating to its sufferers, especially the ones with darker skin tone.

There are certain treatment options that can help.

  1. Topical preparations of immune suppressing medications, creams and steroids are considered to be first-line vitiligo treatments.
  2. Next option is to expose the affected skin to UVB lamps with the phototherapy treatment at home or get the Ultra violet (UVA) treatment at a hospital.
  3. In extreme cases of extensive vitiligo the option to de-pigment the unaffected skin may be considered to render the skin an even colour.
  4. However, in mild cases, vitiligo patches can be hidden with makeup or other cosmetic camouflage solutions. If the affected person is pale skinned, the patches can be made less visible by avoiding tanning of the unaffected skin.

Camouflage Treatment In Vitiligo
Camouflage is derived from the French word, ‘Camoufler’ which means ‘to blind’ or ‘veil’. Also known as protective concealment, it means to disguise an object in plain view, for the purpose of concealing it from something or someone. Cosmetic camouflage is the application of make-up creams and/or powders to conceal color or contour irregularities or abnormalities of the face or body. It was pioneered during the Second World War to help pilots who were badly burnt by making use of plastic surgery and camouflage cream. These creams did not camouflage the person but were used to conceal blemishes on the skin so that they were not obvious. This kind of remedial cosmetic skin camouflage is defined as being the ‘the art of concealing a discoloration, blemish or scar with the application of specialist camouflage creams that are matched to the surrounding skin tone.’ Nowadays, it is used to conceal abnormalities from various dermatological disorders, especially vitiligo.

Types of Camouflage
Camouflage may be permanent or temporary.

  1. Remedial cosmetic cover creams help conceal the blemish of vitiligo at least temporarily. A high concentration of pigment is incorporated into water–free or anhydrous foundations to give a color that matches the patient’s skin, thereby concealing vitiligo patches.
  2. Permanent camouflage is obtained with a cosmetic tattoo. Unlike pigments used for ritual or symbolic tattoos, cosmetic tattoos are inert iron oxides that are available in more than 15 shades. The color is implanted into the dermal layer with specialized techniques and cannot be washed off.

Camouflage improves the appearance of the individual, as the focus is no longer on the discoloration that the person wishes to hide, thereby improving their confidence and self-esteem. This makes camouflage the most popular treatment option in vitilgo. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

I am 25 Year old male having dark circle under my eyes? What should I do to remove them.
Some causes behind the dark circles are hereditary, aging, dry skin, prolonged crying, working for long hours in front of a computer, mental or physical stress, lack of sleep and an unhealthy diet. Follow the tips: *Get an adequate amount of sleep. *Drink at least 8 -10 glasses of water everyday. *Eat vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin A to prevent dark circles around eyes. *Avoid stress. *Gently massaging almond oil or olive oil around the eyes during nights can give great results in reducing the dark circles. For medicine consult privately.

I am getting pimples on my face and becoming dark spots sir please tell me how to remove this problem.

I am getting pimples on my face and becoming dark spots sir please tell me how to remove this problem.
Hi, Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e. Cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Prevention: -Take healthy food only and avoid unhealthy ones (although sebaceous glands are not excretory glands then as well!) as what you eat is reflected on your face! -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension as it encourages secretion of stress hormone in the body as thus affects skin or any other tissue of the body. -Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water in a day. -Take 6-8 hrs. Of sound sleep everyday. -Don't use others towels, handkerchief on your face as well as never share yours. -Never ever rub your face as it damages the skin (even towel should be dab on skin softly) and break outs of acne get worsened! -Maintain hygiene, wash your face 2-3 times in a day, changes the pillow covers, bed sheet daily, use cotton bed sheet only (try to sleep on your back). Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 30 days. Also, use Bakson’s Apricot scrub 1-2 times a week on the area.

Important Role Of Homeopathy In Treating Psoriasis!

Important Role Of Homeopathy In Treating Psoriasis!

Psoriasis is a very common type of skin disease and is mainly activated due to a disorder in the immune system of an individual. The disorder causes a rapid production of excessive cells on the skin, which are not shed off naturally by the skin tissue, thereby causing disturbance to the skin and resulting in skin disease. Psoriasis occurs mainly due to viral and bacterial infections. The treatment helps to improve the immune system and reduces the itching and redness of the skin caused due to psoriasis.

Consequences of Psoriasis
The outcomes of the persistent skin disorder include the following:

  1. Red thickened patches on the skin, which typically occur on the elbows, knees, scalp, palms, torso, and soles of the feet
  2. Excess itching, pain and discomfort as it is unpredictable and chronic in nature
  3. Leads to anger, worry, social awkwardness and irritability as the physical appearance of an individual and his or her overall life is affected by this skin disease

It is important to opt for homeopathic treatment for the emotional well-being and good physical health of a person.

Why Opt For Homeopathic Treatment?
Assured and successful results can be gained through homeopathic treatment for psoriasis. The common homeopathic medication that can be used to resolve skin ailments is Staphyagria. Some of the other homeopathic medications that can be used for psoriasis include Kali arsenicum, Kali sulphuricum, Carcinosin, and Mezereum.

Many patients have gained successful results with this treatment and it has the potential to trigger the natural healing capacity of the body. Curative therapy is made use of to treat individuals suffering from the skin disorder and the remedies are highly diluted. Patients can be kept away from any toxicity mainly because of the highly diluted nature of homeopathic medications.

Benefits of Homeopathic Treatment

  1. There are no side effects and the treatment mainly involves the use of medicines attained from natural sources. The homeopathic medicines are safe to use as they do not contain any chemicals.
  2. The approach of the homeopathic treatment for the skin disease is more holistic and the root cause of the skin condition is corrected with this treatment. It also takes care of the emotional conditions like depression and mental stress, which are triggered in case of psoriasis.
  3. The homeopathic medications are effective and have gained proven results. Further, the deviation of the immune system is restored to normalcy using homeopathic treatment.

Conclusion: For psoriasis, the best treatment that can be made use of is homeopathy as it is safe and effective and does not cause any side effects. Homeopathic treatment is very slow, but in chronic cases, it provides long lasting recovery from such adverse health conditions.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
