I am 19 years old female.I m a student.I have been suffering from hairfall from my 11th class.I have consulted a dermatologist .She suggested me Trigaine with minoxidil(2%).She said that,this solution should be applied 1ml twice a day and take a head bath twice a week.But I have read your answers here...These answers mean that Head Bath should be taken everyday with a mild shampoo.What is correct in this?I also have blood deficiency.So, how long is this solution to be used?

Hello Doctors, I am suffering from hair fall for a very long time now. I consulted a doctor and he suggested tugain 10% and it worked great for me. I left using it for some months and the hair fall started again. Now I am using it again but i havent seen any positive results. All i see is small hairs developing and falling off (eye lid hair sized). And my hair density has decreased too. Now the doctor advised me to use Trigaine. Can you please suggest what is the difference between the two.

I have realised every time i go to the beach and i spend my time tanning, i always get red dots all over my legs. They are no painful or raised or itchy. They are just dots (look a lot like freckles). No-one else i know gets this, they all get smooth tans and then i have red dots all over my legs! I noticed this before when i was younger too.Why does this happen? Can i prevent it because it really doesn t look nice and makes me self conscious

Well,I have a question that is now related to a sunburn I received on my forehead that resulted in discoloration. I do not know where to turn and I can t afford to see a derm =[ Ok, long story short, I went hiking in Yosemite and received a sunburn on my shoulders and forehead (I didn’t wear any sunscreen). My shoulders have peeled and look normal now, however, my forehead actually formed blotches of tender pink. I noticed this a couple days after hiking, that there were a few patches on my forehead that were actually lighter in color than the rest of my face (somewhat pinkish). I then applied aloe vela for the next week, along with sunblock, and stayed out of the sun as much as possible. I never stayed in the sun for extended periods of time. After one week of doing this, the patches on my forehead are no longer pink, but still somewhat lighter than the rest of my face—my face is tan, and the patches are lighter tan. (not terribly lighter, but it is noticeable if you look at it in the right angle) =( Just in case this helps, I am a very tan person and never really get sunburned. My questions are: 1. What exactly happened to my forehead? Is this a normal result of sunburn? 2. Is this going to scar? Will the skin patches on my forehead ever return back to the same color as the rest of my face? 3. Am I taking all the right steps in treating my face? Sunblock, aloe vera? What else should I be doing? Sorry for all the questions, but ANY help/advice would be appreciated. Am I overreacting since it’s only been 2 weeks? It is just making me worry a lot and almost insecure since I am afraid it might last like this forever or a verrry long time. Worried Ron
