Wart is infectious to self and to others. There are certain medicines that can cure warts but that is not always the case if not cured with medicines they can be removed by cryotherapy, electrocautery or laser.

Tea Tree Oil: It is a great moisturizer for the hair; it helps to keep the scalp free of bacteria and fungal problems. Tea tree oil unblocks the sebaceous glands and encourages the flow of the scalp’s own moisturising oils while clearing away dead skin cells. Tea tree oil mixed with other essential oils is especially good as a scalp treatment for relieving dandruff.

Is your hair loss accompanied with greying of hair and have they become very thin? your hair needs a very high protein well-rounded diet. Hair and nails are the last organs to get nutrition in the body, hence only if all the organs get sufficient nutrition and proteins, only then the remaining nutrition would be used for hairs. A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Hence a therapeutic diet prescribed by a registered dietitian can help a lot in hair growth. Besides diet excessive stress, current/past dandruff and some medication are conclusively known to retard hair growth and promote hair loss. - cut down on the use of hair spray, hair gels, and styling creams that contain harsh chemical ingredients, which can dry out the scalp and cause the formation of flakes. Also harsh treatments such as perms, colours, relaxers etc take a toll on the health of your hair. - avoid changing your shampoo and conditioner constantly. Stick to one good mild cleansing shampoo for six months before changing. - excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, rain water and dust without proper protection makes the hair dry, brittle and limp. Use a live in conditioner during the rains to protect it from the humidity and wash and oil it regularly to maintain a healthy scalp. I may also prescribe medications like biotin or minox. That are proven to help in hairgrowth and repair I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Hair fall may be attributed to different reasons like using artificial colors, hair styling, chemicals etc. It may be due to some internal weakness also. Please go for herbal neem shampoo. Use shikakai and amla as conditioner (soak amla and shikakai in water overnight and boil a little in morning). Apply it on hairs. Keep for half an hour and then wash. It will condition the hairs.

Hi hair needs diet rich in proteins as the strands of hair are made up of protein, beside dietary factors other factors like stress, sleep deprivation, medical illness, pollution and some medication are known to cause hairfall. Use of hair styling products, hair gels containing harsh chemicals also contribute to hair fall. Frequent t change of shampoo also causes hair to fall. Pollution rainwaters, exposure to sun makes hair dry and lustreless. Regular oiling and washing cleans the scalp n maintains healthy hair. To prevent hairfall start using arnica hair oil as it helps in checking the hair fall. Start consuming diet rich in proteins and antioxidants, have plenty of water and fruits. You can also apply coconut water at the roots of your hair it will give strength to the hair. For homoeopathic treatment consult at homoeo healing centre.

Psoriasis is an auto immune disorder and we have self made tablets for psoriasis. These tablets prolong ongoing remission, promote regression of lesions and induce early remission of psoriasis. These tablets are predictably effective in reducing itching and flare up of psoriasis. Regards

If you have pain over forehead than it must be because of sinusitis and do steam inhalation with warm water.

I find this one the hardest! caffeine is a diuretic, which makes you urinate out more liquid than you take in causing dehydration. Dehydration of your body and hair roots is another key reason for hair loss. Replace your daily coffee intake with a fruit beverage, milk or any other non-caffeinated drink to those shiny and healthy hair.

Line of treatment for pimples: 1) start with washing the face 5-6 times a day. 2) take an enema for first 6 six days. 3) eat only fruits for these six days. Still better course will be to sustain on plain water for 2-3 days and then start on fruit diet. 4) apply steam on the face once every day for first six days and then twice a week. The method for applying steam is as follows: 5) take a vessel (topia or pateela or bhagona) of about 2 kg capacity. Fill it half by water and put it to full boil. When water starts to boil cover the vessel and put it on a table. The patient sits on a chair and covers his head, shoulders, upper back and the vessel by a thick multi folded bed cover. It should be large enough to not to let the steam escape from sides. Open the vessel cover a little at a time, keeping the face close to the vessel. Inhale steam through mouth and exhale through nose. Continue opening the vessel a little more at a time till it is completely open and the flow of steam stops. Wash the face with cold water. 6) come back to regular food but completely avoid spicy, fried foods. Eat lots of salads (not less than 200 gms with every meal) and fruits. Avoid fried foods, sugar and maida. 7) if you continue this way not only the pimples will go, the general health will also improve. The patients will experience reduced bouts of cold and cough. Sinus congestion will also be removed.

I am 27 yrs, height 6 feet, weight 53. When I was in 6th class at the age of 12 years I started masturbation & around 20 times & more in a month used to do. I kept carrying it on till 12th standard at 20 yrs. But since 20 years I didn't touch my penis for masturbate when I came to know its side effects. Thinking this I recently got my sperm analysis tested & shown it to doctor who says my sperm count is 58.0 million/ml & other details on report are normal. But I didn't tell him my old story of masturbation due to embarrassment. During 12 years to 20 years I did masturbation more than 2500 times now I can see my penis is sprinkle & main veins of my penis (left & right) are bulge assuming that no power is there. However when I feel sex my penis get big & liquid come out but I don't masturbate & try to control. When I didn't start masturbate means at age 9 years I was very fatty even people used to call me fatty fatty. I was very good health. But now after leaving this bad habit it has been 5 yrs. I am 27 years with weight 52 around. I am in a job people who meet me always say you are very thin at this age "if Parents make you marriage now you can't work out & go to bed, they say I think you have some more problem. Sir as say I was very good with health before masturbation even my parents & 2 younger brother are very good with health with small diet but I take diet better than them even I can't recover my lost power. Now situation is that my skin is as loose as an old man of 60 yrs. One day my friend touch my arms & said "yaar tumne masturbation bahut kiya tha kya kabi kitne patla hath h tumhare. Sir I am in big problem. If I suffer any disease like fever etc I can accumulate will power to stand up for work like other who are in fever but they can work. I reduce my weight very fast in fever or if I reduce my diet. I am 27 years I am in big tension when I read a book where it was mentioned that those children who masturbate in teen age can't regain their natural health in future because sperm is very intact at this time if it loose can't be good in health now I am seeing difference in my health & brothers they are naturally fit with less diet. That's why I am not going for marriage after being forced by my parents because If I marriage I can sex with my partner for 1 to 2 yrs. After that I will got to bed because I already lost my power. Sir I am in big tension not happy in life because I can see my future in dark in coming days & the same is doing on. I request you to please suggest me that what should I do How Can I Regain My Health After Years of Excessive Masturbation. Can I get it or not please express your views is there any medicines which can cures me & make me naturally fit & get health as I haven't done masturbation in my life. please express your views.

Scars and pigmentation are common after acne. Use red lentil (massor dal) face pack in milk for removing the pigmentation. You may add to it ayurvedic preparations on prescription to prevent recurrence of acne/pimples.
