Natural oils such as coconut, olive, jojoba, almond etc. Can be used to massage the scalp for countering hair fall. Gently massage the scalp prior to head bath twice a week. Also check hemoglobin for anaemia and thyroid status with serum tsh. Have more proteins and trace minerals like copper, zinc, selenium in diet. Start taking a hair nutrition supplement. Keep stress away with regular exercise, yoga, meditation. Get the underlying scalp condition like dandruff treated.

Take homeopathic medicine baryta carb 200 (5 drops in little water) one dose and revert after 2 weeks. Apply jaborandi hair oil. 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. It is not necessary that the eczema will move/spread to head. However it needs to be treated also.

In addition drinking a warm glass of milk containing a spoon of cow before going to bed will enhance your ejaculation and most effective green salad like tomato white onion cabbage collard greens use dark chocolate daily and use ayurvedic treatment see to proper sexologist doctor.

My son age 5 month 15 days, weight:- 5. 3kg, he had suffered the whole of heart (size-6mm). So what I can do?

Hello thanks for the query the hole in heart can be in the atrial septum known as atrial septal defect (asd) or in the ventricular septum known as ventricular septum defect (vsd). The future outcome depends on multiple factors like type of septal defect, ventricular size and contractility and pulmonary artery pressure. We can wait for 6 mm asd if not causing any hemodynamic overload while 6 mm vsd may need medical treatment and closure as this may cause recurrent respiratory illnesses. The hole can be closed by a button through a wire or may need open heart surgery. This also depends on the location. So I request you to give history in detail like weight, growth, feeding difficulty, frequency of respiratory illness and to attach the report so that I better able to help you out. Regards.

Something is obviously not right with him and he needs help immediately. Take him to a counselor and if that person advises him to meet a doctor have him meet him too. Some people go blank when they are very angry and they have a temporary blackout at that time. So he may need anger management classes apart from some medical intervention.

Sometimes vaginal infection is not completely cured if both the partners are not treated simultaneously. Consult a doctor and get both of you treated irrespective of the fact whether there are any symptoms in the male partner or not.

Don't make your relation addiction, because then its really hard to get out of it. This relation is just a part of your life its not your whole life. So try to detach yourself from the relation, prioritize things in your life and deliberate try tor educe conversation and your meetings. Make a schedule, get yourself busy in things, exercise and find other motivations in your life. If you feel this relation is not helping you talk mutually and end it. It may be hard initially but no feeling stays forever, so it will change for good. Take counseling if required. Consult me for same.
