What should be the appropriate time to consult a doctor if the condition of yeast infection happens to occur.

It should be as early as you suspect it. Else it might spread and cause problems. Doctor should also look into the cause of it apart from only treatment so that future recurrence can be avoided.

I have uneven skin tone on my face And childhood dark spots so how can I overcome it?

Firstly start taking a full nutritious diet . A good diet is a nutritional lifestyle that promotes good health. A good diet must include several food groups because one single group cannot provide everything a human needs for good health.And what ever we are eating that reflects on our body and skin. 1. Homoeopathic medicine for fair skin is Berberis Aquafolium mother tincture.take 5 drops of it mix with water , twice a day. 2. Apply this tincture in diluted form on your face with cotton once a day . 3. wash your face with besan and curd , mix a pinch of turmeric also. 4. Apply Bio valley's skin lightening cream 5. Apply rose water to your face at night. 6. Apply cucumber juice+ lemon juice+ tomato juice on dark spots. 7.Apply Multani mitti pack on the affected areas.

Hi I am Prakhar and I have a scar on my face and suddenly it turns that it is not a normal scar it is a keloid. It's about 2-3 cm long. As I have heard there is a solution but there are high chances of side effects also. Please help me out with the best possible solution.

Dear, keloids are formed due to defective healing of body injury. I can suggest you some better tips to get relief from keloids: * boil 100 gm of dry or fresh neem leaves in 500 ml of water and wash keloids with this water daily. * take 2 teaspoon of turmeric (haldi) and 2 tea spoon of mehndi, mix some water in it and make paste. Apply this paste on keloids and wash it after 45 minutes. Repeat it atleast for 20-25 days. * you can take mahamanjishtarishth but only under the guidance of an ayurveda expert. * you can also opt the plastic surgery or radiation therapy by consulting a cosmetic surgeon.

I am having a dry lips situation which doesn't seem reduce. I apply lip balm every day but that's just a temporary solution. After few hours my lips dry again and the lip skin starts peeling off similar to as in the case of dry lips. This happen all seasons irrespective of humidity in the climate. Am I having some deficiency and how can I take care of it if yes?

BHMS

Hello, Lips can become chapped or dry when they are exposed to the sun, wind, and cold or dry air. Licking lips, dehydration, nutritional deficiency and few medication can be other reasons for making the lips dry. Consider these tips: Protect your lips. Before going out in cold, dry weather, apply a lubricating lip cream or balm that contains sunscreen — and then cover your lips with a scarf. Reapply often while outdoors. Avoid licking your lips. Saliva evaporates quickly, leaving lips drier than before you licked them. If you tend to lick your lips, avoid flavored lip balm — which may tempt you to lick your lips even more. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids, and moisten the air in your home with a humidifier. Avoid allergens. Avoid contact with irritants or allergens, such as fragrances or dyes, in cosmetics or skin care products. Breathe through your nose. Breathing through your mouth can cause your lips to dry out. If chapping is severe and doesn't respond to treatment at home, consult your doctor. Rarely, persistent chapped lips may indicate an underlying problem. A lip balm containing petroleum or beeswax will provide a barrier and help seal in moisture. Use Bakson’s Lip Balm.

Fair & dark complexion matters but little. If you have healthy skin then you will appear attractive. So take those kind of food which makes your skin healthy. Take fruits, raw vegetables & fruit juices in your daily diet. Take coconut water. Avoid tea, coffee. In place of tea, coffee, take curd & milk. Use oat meals. Do yoga. Avoid fried food. You can take homoeopathic medicines which will make your skin healthy. Rx berberis vulgaris q/ bd 15-15 drops + 1/2 cup water daily.

My 2 years and 5 months boy seems to hv worms in hs tummy. Could notice 1 r 2 at the mouth of the anus. He could not bear the itching and cries. He was already given a deworming dose on sep16, 2015. What to do pls help me.

PGDMLS, PGDHHM, LLB, PhD Surgery, MS - General Surgery

Yes worm infestation is a common problem in children. I would suggest the following: 1. Repeat deworming dose every 2-3 weeks for 4-6 courses 2. Personal hygiene measures eg. Daily bathing, clean & soft towel, clean & loose clothes, clean socks (even if shoes are not worn), clean toys as the child has a tendency to put toys in the mouth, brushing of teeth, hand washing / sanitizer use & so on 3. Good nutritious food 4. In view of the itching, massage of the skin in general & area around the anus in particular, with oil / cream of your choice will be helpful 5. Periodic check by your paediatrician for this as well as immunizations and preventive & promotive health is a good idea.

Apply Demelan cream for application once in a week at night (very little only) over scars and marks only. Avoid extreme sun exposure during day time. For faster improvement of marks combination peels can be done at skin clinic treatment done by dermatologist.

I am used skin lite for last 2 years. In long use we bad effects for long time use?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Skinlite cream is a strong pigmentation reducer cream and shouldn't be used without a dermatologist's prescription. It contains steroid, hydroquinone and tretinoin. Though initial effects with the cream are good but prolonged use may lead to thin dry skin with visible thread veins, acne, red irritated skin.

Drinking anything organic, is better than taking caffeine in form if tea or coffee. It does not show any miracle but it is surely a good replacement and that will show on your skin.
