Dear Lybrate User, Hair growth occurs in cycles. Each cycle consists of a long growing phase (anagen), a short transitional phase (catagen) and a short resting phase (telogen). At the end of the resting phase, the hair falls out (exogen) and a new hair starts growing in the follicle beginning the cycle again. Normally, about 40 hairs reach the end of their resting phase each day and fall out. When more than 100 hairs fall out per day, clinical hair loss may occur. Hair loss have many causes such as:- 1) Shrinkage of the hair follicles due to the influence of androgenic hormones. 2) Under-nutrition of the hair due to fungal infection on the scalp. 3) Effects of Radio therapy or Chemotherapy. 4) Nutritional deficiencies. 5) Autoimmune diseases. Modes of treatment for hairfall/alopecia includes surgical modes, oral medicine & local external application. The minimum duration of the course of oral medicines & external application is 6 months. You can start the following medications:- 1) Take 5 drops of Homeopathic SULPHUR 200, once in a week. 2) Take 5 drops of Homoeopathic SELENIUM 200 every morning before brushing your teeth. 3) Take 4 tablets from Biochemic NATRUM MUR 6X TABLETS, thrice daily. Just chew the tablets as those tablets are sweet in taste. 4) Take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture ACID PHOS Q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Kindly note that this medication may not be sufficient enough to take care of your problem. These medicines are based on the symptoms of your diseased condition & these medicines need to be complemented by further deep-acting remedies in order to permanently eliminate the underlying cause of the disease. So I would suggest you to consult me privately via Lybrate as it is very necessary to diagnose the proper underlying cause of your problem if you are wishing for a permanent relief from your problems. A permanent annihilation of the underlying cause of the disease will not only provide you relief from your troubles but it will also cease any chance of further relapse of that particular disease condition.

As u have recovered from fungal infection, Take preventive measures to avoid reinfection. Keep the affected skin clean and dry. Use your own towel. Use antidandruff shampoo. If it recurs, u may need oral antifungal medicines too.

Hi Doctor, I am 27 years old bald guy. I work in a night shift from 11: 30 pm to 9: 30 am. I feel inconfident as I loosed my half of hair just one year ago. I generally wear cap though my friend says I look good in complete bald head. I do not have much money for hair transplantation so cannot use that. Is there any other solution so I can regrow hair and feel confident. I do have very thin hair lining. One of my friend suggested Unani therapy how is that. Please help.

Hi lybrate-user, wear loose cotton underclothes. Keep the private parts dry. Change underclothes regularly. It may be due to a fungal infection which thrives in humid, wet environments. Apply k-z cream twice a day on itchy areas for 6 week.

Please take fluoric acid 30 - twice daily for next 2 weeks. Apply jaborandi hair oil. Also use arnica shampoo. Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily. Eat healthy and balanced food like pulses, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and nuts etc. Add more vitamin rich food to your diet. Avoid stress and anger by meditation. Cut down the use of hair spray, hair gel. Take sound/good sleep. Avoid too much exposure of your hair to sunlight/ hair styling tools, as they damage hair and cause split ends. Continue treatment.

General Physician,
ACNE ( PIMPLE ) FIGHTING FOODS

Are you someone who has given it up on acne? May be you haven't thought about this. How about trying these harmless yet acne fighting foods?

Though quite contrary to our thinking food takes up only 25% of the damage of skin while the rest are contributed by hormonal chaos, stress, sleep disturbances, environmental pollution, dandruff and so on. But, at least the first 25% is in our control. Apart from a low fat diet, hormone free dairy products and natural home made
food is recommended for acne.

1. Water- Not just water but luke warm water will flush your body clean and to trigger off fat loss.

2. Vitamin A- if you are wondering about the potency of Vitamin A then get ready for the surprise. Accutane, a prescribed drug for acne is nothing but a megadose of this vitamin. Any Vitamin A rich foods (sweet potatoes, carrots, leafy veggies, lettuce) can be consumed to get your daily dose of 10,000 IU vitamin A. Avoid if pregnant or lactating.

3. Vitamin E and C- Vitamin E is familiar to all those who love their skin. These two vitamins are great to soothe skin. For these two vitamins eat citrus foods, papaya, nuts, broccoli and sunflower seeds.

4. Selenium- This is a mineral with antioxidant properties capable of protecting your skin. Eating wheat germ, brown rice, garlic, brazil nuts, eggs and fish like salmon and tuna would give you selenium.

5. Zinc- While local application of zinc is known to cure dandruff, zinc deficiency is also linked to acne. Have almonds, brazil nuts, wheat germ or turkey for a dose of zinc.

6. Omega 3 Fatty Acids- These are anti inflammatory preventing breakouts. Flaxseed oil, walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds and cold water fish can be consumed in moderation.

You never know what works the best for you. Ask us for more!
I would be happy to answer any other queries you might have.Ask me privately

DOCTOR, I go to gym and lift heavy so I have stretch mark on my arms how can I remove it. It does not look good. please give me some oil or cream so it can be vanished.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, There's no way to prevent stretch marks. There are no products on the market that can prevent them, Creams that claim to work on stretch marks are applied to the external layer of skin. But they won't reach the layer underneath, which is the part that stretches. So There's no need to spend lots of money on creams and lotions. Make your Own Stretch Marks Removing Lotion:-For this, mix ¼ cup aloe vera gel and ½ cup extra virgin oil. Break open 6 Vitamin E capsules and 3-4 Vitamin A capsules and add the liquid to the oil and gel mixture. Mix all the ingredients and store it in a bottle. This is your natural lotion to remove stretch marks. Keep this bottle in the refrigerator. Apply daily on the stretch marks. Shake the bottle before use. ***Take Schwabe's Silicea Pentarken, 2 tabs ,twice daily for 1 month.**
