Regularly wash your hair with mild shampoo. 1. Vitamin for hair loss.(a, b and c) 2. Enrich diet with protein. 3. Do warm coconut oil massage. Take coconut oil and heat it up so that it is warm, but not too hot. Massage your scalp with this hot oil for a few minutes. 4. Avoid brushing wet hair. 5. Keep yourself hydrated. 6. Put on a shower cap for an hour then shampoo your hair. It helps to stop hair loss and promote hair growth. 7. Avoid hairstyles that pull on the hairline. 8. Ditch hair tools that use high heat. 9. Be wary of chemical processing. 10. Drink water to hydrate your body. U can mix arnica q and jaborandi q equal quantity. Apply on scalp with the help of cotton. Wash hair next day. Do it twice a week homeopathy is a very effective for this problem n has very encouraging results. You can contact me for a detailed consultation.

Hi! prugo is an antihistamine with hydroxyzine as a main drug. Hydroxyzine is a safe antihistamine (which controls itching) can be taken in a blood pressure patient. Coming to sleepiness, yes definitely prugo causes sleepiness. As most of the patients suffering from fungal infections ,itch in night time, doctors usually prescribe in the night even though it cause sleepiness.

Hi lybrate-user, fungal infections can be because of hot weather. It can aggravate because of steroid creams. Pls stop clopinate gm since it has a steroid in it. Pls apply only antifungal cream like nizral twice a day for a month. Avoid sweating and moisture in affected area. Wear loose, cotton clothes. Pls see a local dermatologist if possible or consult online with pictures for detailed assessment.

Hello lybrate-user agar aapke nail main fungal infection hai sabse important kaam aapko jo karna hai, aapne haathon ko detergent, sabun lagne se jitna bacha sakte ho bachana hai. Agar aap kuch ghar ke kaam jaise ke bartan dhone ya kapde dhone, ya sabjiyan katne ka kaam karte ho toh woh kaam band agar kar sakte ho tih band karo and agar nahi band kar sakte ho to rubber gloves pehan ke kaam karo. Nahi toh aap medicine lete rahoge but koi fayeda nahi hoga. And zocon 150 mg aapko hafte main ek din keni hoti hai yeh yaad rakhna, 3 mahine tak hi.

Dear lybrate-user effective treatment available for fungul infection. Do not use steroid containing combination creams. Steroid based cream lead to repeated case of recurrence and also side effects due to application. Your old clothes (mostly inner clothes), towels may also have fungus so change your fungus contact clothes after taking treatment. Avoid sharing clothes, towels and soap. I hope you find this information helpful. You can send me photos of the affected area for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Hi! presently fungal infections are on the rise and it is spreading as an epidemic for past 2 years due to fungal resistance and usuage of topical steroid creams. All medication should be completed as prescribed by the dermatologist. All precautions to be followed by as advised namely washing the clothes in hot water, drying them in hot sun, taking care of pets if there. Canditral id a good brand of itraconozole which can be safely be taken for 2 months. Use complete course to prevent re infection. Check lft after 2 months for safety reasons.

I am 32 years old married man. I am suffering from fungus infection from past 15 years. There are small small white patches all over the body. It is disappearing and developing again often. Rarely I feel itching. Consulted doctor few times. They had given af tablet and fluconazole cream. If I take tablet and apply cream then these patches will disappear. If I stop taking treatment again after few months it starts developing. From last few years small small skin tags are developing on neck and armpits. It is causing irritation. Please suggest effective medicine for this.

Thanks for your reply, which is quite a relief. I would repeat again my problem. In 2017 had fungal infection which was cured (in the thigh portion inside) and treatment taken for almost 3 months from a dermatologist, who gave canditral 200, later on canditral 100, allegra 180 and onabet for local application. This time after almost 3 year's, fungal infection is on the back middle portion, and slightly on nose and face. Hence repeated same medicine for over a month with canditral 200 only once a day, allegra 120 and onabet for local application. Only 50-60% relief. Due to lighten for last 3 months could not approach the same doctor, as his clinic is closed. Hence please advise.

Dear lybrate-user if it is really a case of t.facie, then lobate-gm is the last thing you want to apply on your face. Not only will it spread the condition further, it will irreparablely damage your facial skin and leave you looking like a hairy baboon. Please share your pictures so that I can help you with a precise treatment plan.
