I am selecting the category as Skin Hair and Nails but my question actually relates to multiple.
1. I am suffering from severe hair loss and badly looking for a treatment. I can see the bald patches and have lost most of my hair. I am now looking for a treatment to stop hair loss and cover my bald patches once again.
2. Suffering with skin problems that includes Acne and Pigmentation Problems. I feel my skin is badly affected by Sun light and UV rays for which I never had any precautions. Now looking for a treatment for same as well. Skin problem can be related to my digestion problem as well.
3. Next is what relates to Throat or Lung problem (well that's what i feel). I have cough most of the time and that affects my head directly. Every time I cough I have severe pain in my pain such that I can't even stand and feels sometime (twice it happened) darkness in front of me. Doctor knows it better so may i will require a full body checkup.

I admit my lifestyle is very badly disorganized and that could also cause all these troubles.
May I have consultation from appropriate doctor regarding this.
