Q: Hi, I am 19 years old and have been suffering with extreme hair fall for the past five months. Please suggest easy and practical home remedies to deal with this problem. Hadia
A:
Dear Hadia, this could be a hormonal issue, therefore, I suggest you visit a dermatologist as soon as possible. Besides, if you want to try a home remedy then you go with a coconut oil and cream mask. Mix coconut and olive oil, and apply it from the root to tip of the hair. Once you have applied the mixture, keep your hair covered using a shower cap and leave it for more than an hour. The mask will not just make your hair shiny and soft, but will also provide nourishment.

Q: I am 29 years old. I have allergy on my feet due to which it always feels itchy. Please tell me how can I get rid of the allergy? Mohsina
A:
Dear Mohsina, you need to keep your feet clean and dry all the time. Wear clean socks and shoes when needed. Buy socks and shoes of breathable material. Keep your nails trimmed and clean. Never go barefoot at public places such as parks, gyms, public toilets etc. Never wear another person’s shoes. If the problem gets severe, consult a doctor.

Q: I am a 42-year-old woman. My hair started to thin since the past few months. Please tell me if this condition indicates vitamin deficiency or is there any other issue? Amina
A:
Dear Amina, it is recommended for you to consult a dermatologist for a thorough physical examination, as that would help in diagnosing the issue accurately. Your hair fall could be because of vitamin deficiency but a hormonal disorder could also be linked to it. Another reason could be regular hair loss either due to stress, a severe illness or a crash diet, but it’s better if you get yourself properly checked.
