Medicines For Vaginal Infections

Sir, I am suffering from fungal infection in thighs near to the penis. It first happened two years back and then it was cured by medicine given by the doctor. But after two years it again started to occur. I have used zimig tablets, zimig cream and onabet cream till now. What medicine should I take orally and apply on fungal infection?

The condition most often occurs when people wear tight-fitting clothing that traps in moisture. Wash the affected skin two to three times a day. Keep the affected area dry. Avoid excess affected skin irritation by wearing 100% cotton underwear. Avoid fabric softeners, bleaches, or harsh laundry detergents. Wash your workout clothes, underwear, socks, and towels after each use. Keep your affected area, inner thighs, and buttocks clean and dry, especially after you exercise and shower. After showering or bathing, dry the irritated affected area by gently patting it with a towel. Be sure to dry your skin thoroughly. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in two cups of warm water. Wash the infected area with this solution and allow it to dry on its own. Another option is to apply a mixture of equal parts of white vinegar and coconut oil on the affected skin. Like hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol can help kill off the fungus that's on the surface level of the skin. You can apply it directly to the affected area listerine: it has antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial properties, which help treat skin problem here are some tips to help you manage the infection: avoid using oily skin products. Reduce your exposure to the sun. Exposure to the sun may trigger or worsen an episode, and a tan makes the rash more visible. Do not wear tight clothing. Wear breathable fabrics, such as cotton, to decrease sweating.

You need to check for your blood sugar levels which is a common cause of yeast infection and therefore itching. In phimosis, smegma under the foreskin cannot be cleaned properly. It can harbor infections. Pl see a skin doctor. Or even a gp.

Hi Sir, Can coconut oil be used to cure tinea corporis in groin area in rainy season?

Dear Lybrate-user, Coconut oli will not cure tinea corporis. It will help you in decreasing the intensity of itching. For the proper treatment of tinea you can take homeopathic medicines as they are highly effective and successful in its treatment. Coconut oil only decreases the itching it will not cure the disease. Since it is contagious you need to maintain the basic hygiene and you will have to wash your clothes in separate bucket. Use different towels and keep the infected area dry since it is a fungal infection so you will have to keep the area moisture free as fungus grows rapidly in moist area. You can take homeopathic treatment for the cure. For more info contact me.

The truth is, hair fall is a complex problem. In fact, ayurveda believes, its the effect of an internal imbalance. Identifying and addressing this internal imbalance will: reduce hair fall & damage reduce hair maintenance effort heal dry, brittle & lifeless hair in order to understand the root cause of your current hair fall, it is important to find out which internal imbalance is causing it losing 20-100 hair daily is normal. Any more than that and you should start treatment. There can be several factors behind hair loss such as environmental effects, aging, too much stress, excessive smoking, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, genetic factors, scalp infections, use of wrong or chemically enriched hair products, certain medicines and medical conditions like thyroid disorder, autoimmune diseases and chronic illnesses to name a few. Do not use shampoo and apply coconut oil and only dry excess oil if any without soap or shampoo in order to have a healthy volume of hair on your head, the rate of hair loss and replacement should be in tandem. With age, your hair growth cycle shows signs of slowing down and factors like age, disease, and hormonal changes among others affect the pace at which an individual hair follicle moves through the 3 phases of the hair cycle. A disruption in your hair cycle can give rise to loss of hair that’s rapid and unexpected. Hair loss or alopecia can affect both men and women. The causes of your hair to fall at an alarming rate are the reasons behind hair loss could be many, but here are 6 major ones: 1. Lack of protein in your diet when you exclude protein from your diet, your body starts to conserve the protein that it has by altering the growth cycle of your hair. In such cases, your hair enters into the resting stage, resulting in zero hair growth. In india, 9 out of 10 people are said to suffer from low amounts of protein in their diet, with 91% vegetarians reporting protein deficiency. 2. Iron deficiency iron plays a very important role in the transportation of oxygen to the different organs of the body. Lack of iron in your diet (which is the principle reason behind anaemia) can give rise to several health problems including hair loss. Your body attempts to direct oxygen to important organs so as to support their functioning. As a result, your scalp witnesses a low supply of oxygen, which causes hair loss. 3. Vitamin d-3 deficiency deficiency of vitamin d-3 gives rise to a type of hair loss called telogen effluvium (te). This is a temporary hair thinning phenomenon that takes place when the all the hair on your scalp enter the resting phase at the same time, subsequently causing you to shed a large amount of hair later on. 4. Smoking smoking can also affect the health of your hair, especially the rate at which it falls and the number of strands lost in a day. A research carried out by the harvard school of public health has revealed that smoking can cause a rise in a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (dht). An increase in dht level prevents new hair cells from growing and causes hair follicles to reduce in size with each hair cycle. As a result, the area on your scalp that gets affected by dht experiences a lack of hair growth. 5. Use of testosterone supplements in gym intake of testosterone in the form of supplements and injections to build muscle mass can trigger hair loss in men. This takes place when the testosterone in these supplements gets changed into dht, thereby affecting your hair loss rate and amount. 6. Past illnesses (dengue, tb and typhoid) falling of hair can also be brought on by illnesses such as typhoid, tb and dengue as the hair growth cycle comes to a stop. Hormonal or metabolic stress that is experienced during the course of such diseases may cause hair to fall. The treatments available to cure hair loss are many like 1. Hair transplant hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical technique that transfers hair follicles taken from other parts of your body to the balding area. Known by the name of follicular unit transplantation, this hair loss treatment can help to bring back the natural appearance of a fuller head of hair. Hair follicles are harvested using two procedures- follicular unit extraction and strip harvesting. The procedure can vary from 4-8 hours or more depending on the case. 2.platelet-rich plasma (prp) platelet- rich plasma (prp) is another treatment alternative that can reverse hair loss. It’s a simple non-surgical procedure that lasts about 60-90 minutes. In this form of hair treatment, the patient’s own blood cells, more specifically blood platelets are injected into the scalp. Usually, 8 sittings are required with each sitting being 2 weeks apart for better results. 3.lowlevellaser (revealed its effectiveness in encouraging hair growth in both the genders. Light) therapy (lllt) this form of hair therapy utilises light energy of a specific wavelength and threshold to stimulate cellular activity, thereby promoting hair growth. Do not use shampoo and apply coconut oil and only dry excess oil if any without soap or shampoo hair fall is a very common phenomenon that plagues millions of people around the globe. Most of you take supplements of vitamin on a regular basis as it aids the build-up of new hair and skin cells. Read on to find out how exactly do the various vitamins help your hair: 1.Vitamin a: this vitamin controls the production of retinoic acid in your hair follicle. It is not only helpful for skin care but stimulates hair growth. It is immensely fruitful in moisturizing your hair and keeping it healthy. Vitamin a is usually found in sweet potatoes, carrots, tuna, lettuce, mango, sweet red peppers, green leafy vegetables and spinach. 2.Vitamin b: variants of this, such as b12, aid in hair growth by managing stress. Vitamin b is found in fruits such as oranges and papayas, and beans. 3.Vitamin c: this vitamin helps you absorb iron from the food you eat which is an absolute essential for hair growth. It also boosts the synthesis of collagen that is required to repair the damage and sustain the structure of your hair. Fruits such as papayas, guavas, lemons, sweet lime, orange, kiwi, vegetables such as broccoli, yellow bell peppers and leafy vegetables are replete with vitamin c. 4.Vitamin d: this vitamin rejuvenates the hair cells in order to form new shafts of hair. Vitamin d is found in dairy products, mushrooms, soy milk, tofu, and cheese. Vitamin d is also naturally made by your body when you expose your skin to the sun and is called the sunshine vitamin. 5.Vitamin e: this aids in stimulating capillaries and enhancing blood circulation on the scalp. This additionally contributes to hair growth due to its high anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidant content. Certain foods loaded with vitamin e are pumpkin, broccoli, olive oil, sunflower seeds, almonds, avocado, tofu and spinach. 6.Vitamin b5: it is also known as panthenol, is a vital ingredient that is used in medicines to regulate hair fall. Foods enriched with vitamin b5 are sweet potatoes, sunflower seeds, avocados, cheese and mushrooms. Other ways to help hair- we have gone over the vitamins that may be important for the health of your hair. But lifestyle changes can help just as much. Try: 1.Cutting back on gels, blow-drying, and brushing hair when wet 2.Lowering your stress by exercising at least 30 minutes a day 3.Drinking enough water, 6-8 glasses a day being mindful of the foods and drinks you consume, the products you use, and the way you manage stress, can all help improve the well-being of your hair. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can ask the safe and natural ways to reduce the hair fall and induce hair growth is to do yoga for hair growth this will keep your mind and body calm and relaxed as well and hence can be described as a total remedy for body and mind. Balayam is a nail rubbing exercise and it is a union of two hindi words bal and vyayam where bal means hairs and vyayam indicates exercise. In simple language ‘balayam’ means an exercise for hairs. To be more specific, balayam is an acupressure therapy in which a person rubs his/her fingernails of both hands against each other to stimulate the scalp’s activities. This stimulation if done correctly, frequently and for a longer period of time is known to boost natural hair growth and cure mpb (i.e. Male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia) observed in some men and women. Method: rub four fingernails (except thumb) of both hands (as hard as possible) against each other. The surface of fingernails should rub hard against each other. Since roots of hair follicles on the scalp are connected to fingernails, this pressure creation will help in pumping required nutrition to the scalp if you rub the tip of fingernails of one hand against the surface of fingernails of another hand, then it accelerates hair growth on ears. If you rub surfaces of only both thumbnails against each other, you can notice faster growth of moustache and beard. (so women should avoid it) if you rub nail tips of one hand with the surface of other hand’s nails, hair in ears will grow. So, it is important to rub without causing friction to nail ends and avoid thumbs. Apart from this exercise, try to quit smoking and have control over alcohol consumption. Also add at least 80-100 gms of protein (soy is preferable), 30 gms of iron and enough sulphur. Drink plenty of pure water, which can help to remove toxins from your body. If you are suffering from anaemia, increase your iron intake. Do this at least for 10 minutes (increase time limit if your hair fall is more) in the morning, before breakfast and 10 minutes in the evening, before dinner. Along with this yoga, practice prithvi mudra for 40 minutes each day. People having high blood pressure should avoid balayam. It may aggravate the condition. Letting your hair get enough sunlight every day is also important. Balayam may not be effective in types of baldness like alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, alopecia universalis etc. Within 3-6 months, you will see a noticeable change in your hairline. After 12 months of regular practice with a proper diet, your lost hair should be restored.
