Having acne problem which is recurring. Is acne related with dandruff? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
hello Mr. XXXXXXX
which is quiet recurring
we tried all
ellopathy, hemopathy, aurvedic
but not much of a help
recently we visited Baba Ramdev's centre
and we were given sm medicines
like Amla juice
some aurvedic syrup
flood blood purification
even smthing for dandruff
according to them , dandruff too is one of the causes
wt do you suggest?
There is no clear cut relationship between dandruff and acne; however individuals who have oily skin wherein there is overactive sebaceous glands can have both the problems coexisting.
ok, she even tried SP4 face wash
I understand your sister's frustration due to inability to cure acne / dandruff issues;
hmmm she is finding it extremly difficult to socialize
however I would like to inform her that both acne and dandruff are chronic conditions wherein we think of prevention and not cure.
As a clinician with no knowledge of ayurveda / homeopathy, I an not the right person to comment about the effectiveness about other treatments given at Baba Ramdev centre.
However if we can review the treatment received by her earlier
we may be able to draw some suggestions that can prevent the flaring acne issues.
so what is that you suggest now?
If she also had dandruff issues, my simple suggestion is to use good antidandruff shampoo like nizoral or 8x shampoo.
These are medicated shampoo available at any chemist store nearby.
Using this shampoo twice or thrice a day in a week for 2-3 months will reduce the problem.
She can try the ayurvedic remedies given for acne at the BR centre for sometime,
oh ok, so you want her to use Anti-Dndruff for smtime
but if they do not show any significant improvement, she can visit a dermatologist or get back to us
but is'nt tht it leaves hair high n dry
*she may chat with us using your login id
Nizoral you said, right?
can we give any refrence of this chat
when we talk next
Yes, Nizoral or 8X shampoo.
They are medicated shampoo for dandruff and hair fall's.
They have been reviewed good by most users.
She may try it for dandruff problems.
Have you followed what I suggested?
Do you have any other query?
thanks for the suggestion
will get back to you
once we follow wt you said
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
