We all fear the changes that old age brings with it, especially in terms of how it changes our appearance. Skin starts to lose its elasticity, dark spots appear on the cheeks and forehead, circles under the eyes grow darker and what not. The battle against ageing is something all of us (especially women) have to prepare for, and the good news is that there are definitely things, which we can add to our armor. Started early on in life, there are skin care measures which can help you combat ageing skin later in life.read more
I am Dr. Punit Pratap, Dermatologist. So winters have come. It is a pleasant weather. We all love this weather. We go out, eat a lot, sleep a lot and what not. But since the moisture in environment comes down, in the winters, drastically so our skin becomes dry and dull. And this can lead to aggravation of many dry skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and some other kinds of skin allergies. As we all know skin serves as a barrier and it protect us from the harmful effects of the external environment.
So when it becomes dry and dull the skin is more allergic to cosmetics, more allergic to thermals or the wollens and for that matter anything which you are using. So these skin rashes can leave some scars if left untreated. So there are some do's and dont's- kya karna chahiye, kya nahi karna chahiye.
Starting with some do's. Firstly, moisturise the skin using some moisturizer and since we all have different types of skin, so moisturisers we need might be different. For this, we must consult the dermatologist. Secondly, we should use very mild soap like Dove, Lux, Pears.
Thirdly, we should take adequeate hydration. Usually hum sardi mein pani kam peena shuru kar dete hain. It should not be like that. Now coming to the don't. We should avoid very hot water bath. Usually hum sardiyon mein bahut garam pani use karte hain. We should use lukewarm water. Halka gunguna pani use karna chahiye. If our skin is very allergic, we should not use deodrants and perfumes on our skin. We should use it on the fabric.
Next, agar hamara skin bohot allergic hai to hame fragnance aur paraben free moisturizer use karna chahiye. Next, we should not use very harsh soaps. We should use rather very mild soap. Lastly if the skin is very itchy and hyper allergy the the we should not be wearing thermals. It should be cotton. In case we develop some skin rashes don't self-medicate. Rather we should consult some dermatologist.

So, today I will be speaking about hair loss. We have almost 1-1.5 lakhs of hair. Among these, 90% of hair keep on growing. Rest 10% hair are in resting phase. So, whenever we have some adverse condition in form of medical condition or medical illness like fever, sore throat, cough, viral infection or in the form of surgical trauma, hormonal factors, we start using these hair which is almost a 10% of total count. We call this a pattern of hair loss. Usually this condition is transient. Once this condition is settled, we start getting back these hair.
This hair loss is the most common problem in females. Underlying causes are inadequate nutrition in form of anemia because woman loses their bloods at the time of menses. The hemoglobin is at the lower side. Apart from that the psychological stress, lack of sleep, inadequate nutrition. This condition is transient and when we maintain the nutrition, the underlying cause is ruled out. This means we get this hair back. So, in males the most common cause is male pattern baldness or we call it androgenic alopecia. Patient may notice the symptom of thinning in hair and converted into androgenetic alopecia. This condition is progressive. Patient may notice the baldness from front. It also takes into the shape of vertex and finally the crown. This condition is irreversible if we don't take any medication. And we eventually get bald for the period of time.
So, to start the best thing is to consult a dermatologist as your medications will be started. We start noticing the hair loss when we see strains of hair in comb or while waking up from the pillow or at the time of shampooing. It can be prevented if the management is good at little earlier. So, we have many other ways like oral therapies, mesotherapy, PRP and the treatment for alopecia which is the most advanced form of the hair loss. This can be managed by the surgical restoration or hair transplantation. So, nutrition is the most important thing usually in females. And the hormonal and genetic factors in males.
Please consult your dermatologist if you see hair loss. So, this can be prevented. Because losing your hair has also an impact on psychological factor. Thank you very much.read more
So, today we’ll discuss about hair loss and Alopecia usually we notice hair fall when we find many number of hairs in comb or while we wake up and on pillow or shower, these are the indicators of hair loss. One should be taken as alarming sign. Hair loss is not just two words, it cannot affect only your looks, it can affect your quality of life and your behavior. So there are many cause of hair loss, which of some are very important like your dandruff, your poor nutrition and underline medical condition and finally Anrdogemetic Alopecia. I will brief this late one and all these cause affect male and female equally.in males you will find the seeding hair like that means like here we call it temporal recession and it form an M pattern. Gradually it goes to the vertex and from their lead the ground. In female, we see the diffused hair loss, okay and we see the space while parting your hair or the thinning of ponytail. The good thing is hair loss is treatable in early middle and late stages. We have many modalities like oral medications, solutions, PRP, Mesotherapy, and finally, surgically restoration by hair transplantation. Dermatologists are the right answers to this problem as in dermatology, trichology is a part of dermatology.
