I am 59 years male person. For the last 15 years I am suffering with eczema on my legs lower side. A black thick skin patch is formed on both legs. Except that place no other place is affected. Some times it is itchy. Two or three times it was completely cured on using certify with with ointments. But for the last six years I am not using medicines regularly as such thick patch is again formed and it is not been cured. I am unable to wear shorts or to wash feet before other people. What are the extreme effects in future? I have to suffer for my life? Or is it curable? If so please advice further course of action.

One more thing I wanted to consult you that is my forehead is darker than my whole face, so tell me something, to maintain even tone of my face.
Peyronie's disease is a male genital problem predominantly found in 3-9% of adult men, especially after 40 years of age. In the disease, a scar tissue is formed in the outer layer of the penis called Tunica Albuginea. Scar tissue is a just plaque inside the penis.
Peyronie's disease causes the penis to bend sideways or upwards and can make sex become difficult due to deformity and erection may be a painful process. It is usually associated with erectile dysfunctions, severe anxiety and reduced testosterone levels. It is worth noting that there are treatments for Peyronie's disease, however, the pain often goes away on its own, generally, in 6-18 months of onset, but the deformity stays.
Here is everything you need to know about this disease:
It is not known exactly what causes Peyronie's disease, however, there are some factors, which make it more likely than others. Here are those factors:
1. Trauma: This is the most common factor which causes Peyronie's disease. It is believed that when someone suffers from tiny bleeding of the penis, which is very common in patients of Diabetes, the plaque starts to build up. The injury or trauma, which causes the bleeding may go unnoticed as well.
2. Genes: Genes are also a possible cause of Peyronie's disease.
The symptoms of Peyronie's disease vary, such as:
1. Pain on Erection: There is usually pain in erection during the initial phase.
2. Bent penis: When the penis becomes hard before sex, it may bend downwards or sideways by more than 15 degree, so the vaginal entry becomes impossible or is painful for the partner.
3. Scars: Tissue may form on other parts of the body, as well including the hand and feet. In fact, it has been said that men who have scarring in the hand, which affect the fingers are more likely to contract the disease as well.
One may see extensive scarring in hands in a disease called Dupuytren's Contracture.
1. Wait & Watch: It is worth noting the acute phase with pain is treated by wait and watch, controlling contributory factors like diabetes, low testosterone and psychogenic factors. Antioxidants are useful. Large number of cases are relieved of the pain in 1 to 1.5 years.
2. Intralesional injection: If the bend is significant enough to interfere in sexual functioning, It can be treated by injecting medicines in the plaque. The medicine, Xiaflex is currently not available in India and other medicines given are not very effective.
3. Surgery: This is a last option when Peyronie's disease has not gone on it's own and medicines are not helping either. The two most common procedures performed are removing the plaque and putting a tissue graft in its place and also removing the tissue opposite the plaque to counter the bending effect. The results are fairly good.
Going for a Penile implant is the last option, which is a permanent solution and is commonly done in India. And, the success rate for Penile implant is also very high. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am suffering from hair fall. Tried lots of oil -shampoo but nothing worked for me till now. I do not want to go with transplant and operations. Is there anything in ayurveda which can grow hair naturally with best result?
For every stage of life!
It’s a bit cliché to say you want to grow old gracefully. The truth is that no woman really wants their skin to sag or get wrinkles. Here’s how to retain elasticity and protect your skin from damage. With a little luck and a lot of planning and prevention, you can stay youthful for decades.
In your skincare routine you should…
Use sunscreen religiously
Make sunscreen an important part of your routine to protect your skin from premature aging, uneven skin tone, dark spots, freckles.
Using sun protection lotions with atleast spf 30 daily will help your skin in the long term.
Use cleansers at least 2-3 times a day to keep your skin oil free clear out the dirt & debris.
Use water based moisturisers if you have oily skin and cream based for dry skin types. We often tend to neglect moisturising routine if we have oily skin type but we should understand that oil moisture are different things! moisture is hydration which forms a protective barrier in our skin.
In your 40s you should…
Retinoids have become the new age skin care essentials. Retinoid refers to a derivative of vitamin a, a vitamin that is proven to boost collagen production, soften fine lines and winkles, and minimizes pores. Vitamin a can upregulate skin cell turnover, meaning that your skin will renew itself more often.
This produces softer, smoother, and more radiant skin. Dark spots start to fade.
Ideally, whatever formulation you choose will contain at least 1 percent retinol, which is the highest allowed in a non-prescription cream.
Consider roc retinol correxion deep wrinkle serum.
You will notice that you’re more sensitive to the sun, so you should either minimize exposure during the initial two week period or wear sunscreen, clothes that protect you from uva and a hat.
Your skin may start to dry out during use. This is normal. Flaking and peeling is also normal. This will pass and, when it does, your skill will look amazing. Once you’ve achieved the results you want, you can discontinue use.
Your doctor can guide you best on use of these creams.
Exfoliate at least once a week
Consider use of alpha-hydroxy acid twice a week. This will boost exfoliation, making your skin brighter and smoother. If you already have problems with dry skin, choose an aha formulation with lactic acid or other moisturizing agents in it.
The next step beyond exfoliation is hydroquinone. It’s not for everyone, but it can make a difference for some. This substance inhibits melanin production, which is a good way to fade out skin blotchiness.
Be cautious to use it without prescription, your doctor will best guide you for its use. The maximum amount of time you should use the product is 3 months. Beyond that time, you should switch to kojic acid or licorice extract.
In your 50s you should…
As you grow older, it gets harder and harder to maintain moisture levels in your skin. So, oil-stripping cleansers and gels should be replaced with moisturizing agents. Hydrating creams will help prevent the natural drying that’s caused by skin cleansers, but it can also help with the side-effects of using retinoids.
One thing you’ll notice from retinoid use is that it’s incredibly drying. After a while, your face will feel like a desert. It’s time to switch to moisturising night creams if you aren’t already using them.
Consider eye cream
Lastly, consider using eye cream for maintenance to lighten, lift, and refresh your under eyes. Sometimes, that’s the best option.
In your 60s you should…
Minimize facial cleansing
Every facial cleanser out there can dry and irritate the skin. Even creamy cleansers can do this due to various drying agents used in them.
Minimize use of cleansers to twice a day.
Use more moisturizers
This is where things get tricky. You need to start using formulas with a high concentration of natural oils which will moisturize your skin. If at all possible, stick with natural oils rather than petroleum-based ones.
Formulations like vitamin c serum to help with moisturizing while also keeping cell turnover up so that you can extend your youthful appearance.
