What Is Acne

  • Acne, known as Acne Vulgaris, is one of the commonest dermatological complaints.
  • Acne is especially prevalent during puberty and young adulthood, although some people may still suffer from it into their middle years. Acne is known in the general population as "pimples."
  • Acne occurs when skin pores are blocked by excess sebum (natural oil produced by the skin) and by dead skin cells. As the sebum builds up, it causes inflammation of the surrounding skin. The lump that forms under the skin because of this blockage is called a comedo. A group of lumps is called comedones.
  • If not treated properly acne can lead to permanent scarring. Acne also has important psychological implications such as low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, especially in youths.    

What Is Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease. In psoriasis, skin cells multiply 10 times faster than their normal. The volume of underlying cells, which reach the surface of the skin and die, causes red and raised plaques. These are covered with white scales. Psoriasis usually occurs on elbows, knees, and scalp, though it may also occur on palms, soles of feet or torso.

There are mainly five types of psoriasis: plaque, inverse, guttate, pustular, and erythrodermic.

What Is Skin care

  • Skin care is mutliple activities carried on to ensure healthy looking skin devoid of any diseases and deformities.

What Is Wound healing

A kind of injury that is caused by various factors like an accident, surgery and certain diseases is called a wound. The skin may get punctured, cut, or torn to form a wound.

Wounds are classified into five categories, which depend upon their causes.

  • Abrasion: When skin is scraped or rubbed against a hard or rough surface, Abrasion is caused. An example of an abrasion is a road rash. Not much of bleeding is there in abrasion, but one must get the wound scrubbed, and cleaned, to abstain from any infection.
  • Incision: Incision is caused by a pointed or sharp object, like a razor blade, broken piece of glass, and knife. Incision causes a lot of bleeding. An incision, which is deep can cause damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Laceration: A deep and rooted tear, or cut in the skin is called laceration. Accidental cuts with machines, tools, or knife may cause a laceration. In this, wound bleed extensively, and rapidly.
  • Puncture: A small hole may be caused by a pointed, long object, like an ice pick, needles, or nail is called puncture. Even a bullet shot can result in a puncture wound. This wound is enough deep to impair the body’s internal organs, though may not bleed that much. A Puncture wound may need an immediate expert vigilance. In some cases, even tetanus is required to prevent the infection.
  • Avulsion: An Avulsion is an extreme form of a wound. In this, the skin may tear away completely, or partially.  This wound may occur at the time of a vicious accident like a gunshot, explosion, or body-crushing accidents. These wounds may bleed rapidly, and heavily.

What Is Asthma

  • Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition of the airways in the lungs. Asthma can either be allergic (most common) or non-allergic.
  • Allergic asthma is due to an allergic response known as a type 1 hypersensitivity reaction. People with asthma’s airways are hypersensitive to certain triggers. The allergic reaction causes narrowing of the small airways and leads to "air trapping" (known as an obstructive airway disease)
  • There are different types of asthma- childhood onset asthma (usually before the age of 5), adult-onset asthma, exercise-induced asthma and aspirin induced asthma. Some asthma is known as seasonal asthma and occurs only at certain times of the year, usually with the changing of seasons such as during autumn or spring.
  • Asthma is diagnosed with lung function tests. A spirometer or a PEFM (Peak Expiratory Flow Meter) is used in conjunction with a bronchodilator. The meter is used to assess your lung function before and after inhaling a fast-acting bronchodilator. A diagnosis of asthma is made when there is an improvement in lung function of more than 20% (PEFM) or more than 12%(when using a spirometer) after the bronchodilator is inhaled.
  • Asthma is diagnosed when a patient has suggestive symptoms and a positive bronchodilator test.

What Is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

A person affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) finds it difficult to breathe.Prolonged smoking damages the lungs.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a combination of two diseases:

  • Chronic bronchitis means the airways that take air to the lungs (bronchial tubes) become inflamed and produces more mucus. As a result of this, the airways become narrow, and breathing process gets complicated.
  • Emphysema is a condition in which the air sacs get damaged and cannot stretch.  Usually, the air sacs in lungs stretch like balloons. Due to emphysema the air that travels in and out of the lungs become slow and leads to breathing shortage.
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease worsens over the time and the damage caused to lungs cannot be reversed. But you can act quickly to prevent further damage and make yourself comfortable while breathing. 

What Is Hair fall, Alopecia

  • Hair loss, also called alopecia or baldness, means a loss of hair from part of the body or head. The severity of hair loss may vary from a small area to the entire body. Typically scarring or inflammation is not present. Hair loss may cause psychological distress in some people.
  • Common types of hair loss are male-pattern hair loss, alopecia areata, female-pattern hair loss, and a thinning of hair known as telogen effluvium. 

What Is Indigestion

Indigestion is very commonly known as an upset stomach and is also called dyspepsia. Indigestion is when you have a pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen or the area under the ribs. This is a very common problem that afflicts most of the people at some point or the other. Indigestion occurs occasionally and most often, it is quite mild.

Indigestion is not really a disease but a set of symptoms. It may also be a symptom of an underlying problem such as gallbladder disease, ulcers or GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease. Indigestion usually occurs when the stomach acid comes in contact with the mucosa i.e. the protective lining of the digestive system. The acids break down the mucosa and cause inflammation and irritation and trigger the symptoms of indigestion.

When the acid in the stomach moves into the esophagus, it causes a burning sensation behind the breastbone. This is known as heartburn. Sometimes, heartburn and indigestion can occur together or on their own.

What Is Obesity

  • Obesity is defined as the build-up of excessive or abnormal fat that may spoil health. BMI (body mass index) calculated by dividing the body’s mass by the square of body height, gives a rough idea of the tissue mass in an individual and helps in categorizing the individual as being underweight, normal weight or overweight.
  • Obese people are prone to cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal abnormalities, and various kinds of cancer. Consuming healthy foods and regular physical activities can help prevent or reduce obesity.    

What Is Herpes simplex

Herpes is caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). There are two types of HSV: HSV-1 and HSV-2. HSV-1 is the most common cause of oral herpes, and HSV-2 is the most common cause of genital herpes. However, both viruses can cause oral and genital infections with practically identical symptoms.

The herpes virus normally enters the body through mucous membranes (especially mouth and genitals) and skin. It travels along the nerve endings to the base of spine, where it stays by feeding off nutrients produced by body cells.

What Is Eczema

Eczema also called atopic dermatitis, is a set of skin conditions that cause the skin inflammation and irritation.

It commonly appears on face, wrists, hands, knees or feet. It may also affect other areas.

Eczema is not contagious; hence there is no risk of it getting spread from one person to another.

What Is Kidney Stone

Hard deposits of acid salts and minerals that stick together in concentrated urine are called kidney stones. They are quite painful while passing through the urinary tract. They are usually not noticed till they cause trouble and usually don't cause permanent damage. Many small stones pass out without trouble.

Kidney stones can be of different types: uric acid, calcium oxalate, calcium phosphate, and cysteine.

What Is Skin rash

Skin rash means changes in the color, texture or appearance of the skin. Rashes on the skin change the color, cause swelling, cracking, blistering, dryness, bumping or warming of the skin. The skin rashes can be in a localized area or all over the skin.

What Is Cancer

Cancer is essentially when there is an abnormal growth of cells in any part of the body. Typically, the body forms new cells to replace the ones that die. When new cells start growing even if you don’t really need them and the old cells don’t die, the extra cells may form a mass known as a tumour (leukaemia is an exception, as in this case cancer prohibits the normal functioning due to the abnormal division of cells in the bloodstream.

These tumours are classified as benign or malignant. Benign tumours are those that remain in one spot and do not grow. These tumours are not cancerous, whereas malignant ones are cancerous. The cells from malignant tumours spread via the lymphatic or blood systems and attack the neighbouring healthy tissues. These cancerous cells may also break away and spread to other parts of the body.

There are over 100 kinds of cancers and cancer can affect any part of the body. Most of the cancers are named after the part of the body where they originate. For instance, if it starts from the lung, it is known as lung cancer, etc. and when cancer spreads from one part of the body to another, it is known as metastasis.

There are broadly 5 groups of cancers:

  • Carcinomas: They occur in cells that cover the external and internal parts of the body such as colon, breast and lung cancer.
  • Sarcomas: These are caused in the cells located in the cartilage, bone, connective tissue, muscle, fat and other supportive tissues.
  • Lymphomas: These cancers usually begin in the immune system tissues and lymph nodes.
  • Adenomas: These are cancers that originate in the pituitary gland, thyroid, adrenal gland and other glandular tissues.
  • Leukaemia:  These cancers begin in the bone marrow and accrue in the bloodstream. 

What Is High Cholesterol

Dyslipidaemia or high cholesterol indicate the imbalance of fats (or lipids) in one’s blood system.

High cholesterol or dyslipidaemia, means that there is an imbalance of fats (or lipids), circulating in one’s blood stream. The body uses cholesterol (the fatty substance) to metabolize food and also make hormones.

The following three different measurements are used to determine one’s overall lipid health:

1.    Low-Density Lipoprotein (bad cholesterol, LDL): The higher LDL, the more is the risk of cardiovascular disease. LDL obstructs the proper blood flow into the heart and other organs by building up plaque in arteries.

2.     High-Density Lipoprotein (Good cholesterol, HDL): HDL brings back the cholesterol to the liver from other parts of the body, thus removing the harmful cholesterols from your body. The higher the HDL, the better it is for the heart.

3.   Triglycerides – Also referred to as fat in the blood. This type of fat is usually found in eatable animal fats and vegetable oils. High levels of Triglycerides signify the increased risk of cardiovascular disease as it also contributes to building up of a plaque in one’s arteries

What Is Immunity building

Immunity building refers to any measures taken to assist and strengthen the body’s immune system to function optimally and to help ward off disease. Proper functioning is necessary for us to maintain ideal health.

The state in which the immune system is functioning sub-optimally is called immunodeficiency. Immunodeficiency states can have serious consequences e.g. predisposing to life-threatening infective diseases or cancer. Overfunctioning of the immune system is also common. Conditions in which the immune system over functions are hypersensitivity reactions or allergies, as well as autoimmune diseases (when the immune system recognises the body's cells as "foreign" and starts to attack them).

The immune system is intricately and very detailed in its design. The system is divided into innate and adaptive immunity. Innate immunity is the body’s first defence against external factors. These include physical defence mechanisms such as skin, mucosa and cell walls, as well as scavenger immune molecules that catch foreign particles in the blood and lymphatic streams.

 It is an immediate defence mechanism and non-specific. It does not adapt over time. White blood cells called macrophages and phagocytes form part of the body’s innate system. Once the innate immune system recognises a threat to the body, these cells activate a system called the complement cascade which leads to further activation of more of the immune system's cells.

The adaptive immune system is more focused and contains antibodies that are formed after exposure to specific foreign substances called antigens. Antibodies are called immunoglobulins, and lymphocytes are the cells responsible for activation of the innate immune system.

Poor diet, fatigue, stress as well as certain substances or medications can all lead to over- or underperformance of the immune system. Organs that form part of the immune systems include your spleen, tonsils/ adenoids, lymphatic system and bone marrow.

What Is Varicose veins

Varicose is also known as varicosities, and it is a very common condition that occurs in almost 25 percent of adults all over the world. Backflow of blood occurs generally due to damaged valves. Whenever the veins get dilated or enlarged, they fill up with blood and look swollen. They generally are seen in legs and feet of people. Varicose veins are more common among women than men. It is a chronic issue which means it can last for the lifetime and cause a lot of pain whenever they occur. 

What Is Head Lice

Head lice infestation is medically called as pediculosis capitis. Head lice (louse) are small, blood-sucking tan colored parasites without wings found on human heads. It is a commonly occurring insect, which attaches itself to the scalp and sucks human blood. Lice are minuscule and moving, hard to spot insects especially in thick hair headed persons. Eggs of these lice are called nits. Nits are very tiny and difficult to be seen. Lice lay their eggs (nits) on hair roots; the presence of white nits confirms the implication of a head lice infestation. It should not be confused with any bacterial or viral infectious diseases. Head lice also do not produce any viral infections in the human body. The manifestation of nits also circumstantiates active head lice, even when one doesn’t find any live louse or nymph (infant louse).

What Are The Symptoms Of Varicose veins

The most common symptoms of varicosities are aching or pain in the area that signifies a blood circulatory issue beneath. For a few people, it is some sort of discomfort they cannot explain. For others, it is simply a cosmetic issue. Usually, the veins are seen bulging out from underneath the skin of the affected area. This happens near the legs or feet.

Sometimes portions of skin surrounding one or more veins get inflamed. Other times it could be swelling occurring in legs after sitting in a particular position for a long time. It could also get started by standing for long period of time. Even the place around the veins starts to itch at times. There will be red discoloration around the swollen/ affected veins area.

What Are The Symptoms Of Head Lice

Head louse is a condition, which is almost asymptomatic, but the itching is the most common symptom.

  • Itching on and near the scalp, and on nearby areas commonly occurs because of an antigen production in reaction to the saliva of the louse. In the first infestation, one may not feel the itching for a month or two.
  • Visible Lice in hairs: Since the lice move very fast, they are troublesome to be seen, but sometimes they can be diligently spotted.
  • Nits on the hair roots: The lice eggs attach to the hair strands, although they are very difficult to be seen, as they grow in size they become tangible. They can be spotted mostly in the neck hairline and the hairs behind the ears. White nits or light-colored nits are empty and fairly easy to spot as they stick on the hair strands. Though the occurrence of nits doesn't determine a head lice infestation, yet soon they will grow to become lice.
  • Head lice also cause a tickling and feeling of some movement in the hair due to the crawling of the lice.

Causes of diseases where APIFIL LOTION 100ML is used

What Are The Causes Of Acne

  • Causes of acne are multifactorial. There are many myths surrounding causes and home remedies.
  • Genetics play the largest role (estimated in 80%) of acne cases.
  • Hormones, especially increased testosterone during puberty, play the second biggest role. Androgens increase the production of sebum by the skin’s oil glands as well as an increased production of cells found in the skin’s epidermis (top layer).
  • Hormonal changes during normal menstrual cycles, as well as pregnancy also play a role in women.
  • The bacteria, Propionibacterium Acnes, which is usually found on the skin, is another important role player. The areas of inflamed skin surrounding comedones make it easier for bacteria to accumulate and grow.
  • Although there are many myths surrounding diet in acne, there are few scientific conclusions around its actual role. Carbohydrates and milk products have shown some suggested links, but none are definitive.
  • Facial hygiene is important, but plays a small role, especially in severe acne.    

What Are The Causes Of Psoriasis

  • Weak immunity, in which white blood cells start attacking skin cells mistakenly.
  • Genetic.

What Are The Causes Of Asthma

  • Mostly asthma starts in childhood and is often outgrown in early adulthood. Some asthmatics may, however, need treatment lifelong.
  • Asthma has a strong genetic component and is part of the so-called "atopic triad" in childhood which includes allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis (eczema) and asthma.
  • Early insult to a child's lungs such as neonatal pneumonia or bronchitis may play a role in developing asthma later.
  • People with asthma have individual triggers. These triggers are commonly sensitivities to house-dust mites, grass, pollen, animal dander, dairy, wheat, nuts and soy products. Chest infections, cold air or air pollution can also trigger an attack.
  • Adult onset starts in the early twenties. There is speculation about possible causes; genetics, smoking and a history of allergies seem to play the biggest part. It affects females more than males.
  • Asthma can be caused/ triggered due to any of the following reasons:

                 1. Airborne substances like pollen, dust mites, pet dander or particles of cockroach waste.

                 2. Respiratory infections such as common cold

                 3. Exercise-induced asthma

                 4. Cold air

                 5. Air pollutants like smoke

                 6. Certain medications including beta blockers, aspirin, ibuprofen  and naproxen

                 7. Strong emotions, stress

                 8. Foods which contain Sulphites and preservatives

                 9. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

Asthma is a combination of environmental and genetic factors, as many people live in same conditions. Still, some people get asthma and some don’t.

What Are The Causes Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Some of the  factors that may cause Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are as follows:

Tobacco Smoking causes Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in developed countries. But in the developing countries, along with smoking, fumes also from burning fuel in homes and industries lead to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Up to twenty to thirty percent of persistent smokers develop clinically apparent Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Most of the smokers with smoking histories for many years might produce a reduction in lung function.  Some of them develop a less frequent lung conditions. Without thorough evaluation, it’s hard to diagnose Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Know how lungs get affected

Via two large tubes called bronchi, the air travels down into the windpipe called trachea. The tubes get further divided into many branches like tree branches inside the lungs. The smaller tubes called as (bronchioles) and they end in a collection of tiny air sacs called alveoli.

The alveoli have a thin wall made up of small blood vessels called capillaries. The oxygen passes through the capillaries and reaches the bloodstream during the inhaling process. Simultaneously, the carbon dioxide comes out during the exhaling process.

The natural flexibility of the air sacs and bronchial tubes pushes air out of the body.  Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease makes the air sacs and tubes lose their flexibility. This leads to some air getting trapped in the lungs while exhaling.

Lack Of Alpha-1-Antitrypsin Protein

Close to one percent of the population gets affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease may result due to the inherited disorder. The lowering level of alpha-1-antitrypsin protein happens due to a genetic disorder. Liver prepares the Alpha-1-antitrypsin and secretes into the bloodstream. Thereby, protect the lungs. Lack of Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein will affect not only the liver but also the lungs. Such damage affects both children and adults due to passive smoking.

For adults with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease due to lack of Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein can be treated the same way others get treatment for the disease. Along with that replacing Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein can protect lungs from further damage.

What Are The Causes Of Hair fall, Alopecia

  • Male-pattern hair loss may be caused by a combination of genetic factors and male hormones.
  • The cause of alopecia areata is autoimmune diseases.
  • The causes for female pattern hair loss are not clear.
  • The cause of is telogen effluvium (common following pregnancy) is mostly a psychologically or physically stressful event.

What Are The Causes Of Indigestion

There can be several reasons for indigestion:

Diseases

  • Ulcers, pregnancy, stomach Infection

What Are The Causes Of Eczema

Exact causes of eczema are still unknown, but it is often triggered by an overactive response by body’s immune system to an irritant. People who have the family history of certain allergies or asthma are more at risk of developing eczema.

Certain foods like nuts or dairy products can also trigger eczema. Environmental factors or pollens also trigger eczema in some patients.

What Are The Causes Of Kidney Stone

 Though there are no exact reasons for kidney stones, they are formed when:
  • Urine contains more oxalate, calcium, and uric acid, the crystal-forming substances than the fluid in urine can dilute.
  • Urine lacking substances which prevent crystals from sticking together, thus creating a good environment for kidney stones to form.

Certain factors that increase the risk of kidney stones are:

  • Dehydration, obesity’
  • Certain medical conditions cystinuria, renal tubular acidosis, hyperparathyroidism, some urinary tract infections.
  • Certain medications, family history of kidney stones
  • Digestive diseases like chronic diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease and surgeries like gastric bypass surgery can cause changes in the digestive process affecting the absorption of water and calcium, increasing the levels of stone-forming substances in the urine.

What Are The Causes Of Immunity building

Causes of reduced immunity can either be intrinsic/ hereditary or acquired.

Intrinsic or primary immunodeficiencies are inborn genetic errors. There are more than hundred different types and forms of primary immunodeficiency syndromes described. These include immunodeficiency syndromes such as selective IgA deficiency, DiGeorge syndrome and Ataxia Telangiectasia.

Secondary or acquired immunodeficiency states can be due to diseases or conditions such as:

Systemic disorders:

  • HIV/AIDS

  • Alcoholism

Physiological states:

  • Pregnancy is a normal physiological state of lowered immunity.
  • Ageing is also a natural process that causes lowered immunity.

What Are The Causes Of Varicose veins

There are several causes of varicose veins. Below are the most common reasons why people suffer from swollen veins:

  • The most common causes for varicose veins are the valves in the body that allow for blood backflow. Increasing venous pressure causes the superficial veins to swell or twist. As there is not much muscular support for the top veins it causes them to become varicose.
  • Reasons that could cause varicosities are standing for too long or excessive abdominal pressure. Other reasons include chronic constipation, pregnancy, obesity and also tumours. However, tumours are the most uncommon causes of varicose veins.
  • Heredity is another factor why varicose veins could occur. This means that if you have a close blood relative who has this health issue then you may have this issue. So genetics also plays a role in the cause of varicose veins. The causes could also be any pressure inducing activities or conditions like pregnancy, constipation or obesity. This is because of excess pressure on the legs area.

What Are The Causes Of Head Lice

Few causes of the lice manifestation in the head:

  • Head lice are highly contagious. The cause of head lice is not related to one's hygiene or cleanliness issues. Head lice have been around for thousands of years and being social is something humans cannot let go of.
  • They transfer from one person to another due to a head to head contact directly or indirectly.
  • Since lice can survive for a short time on hair brushes, hats, and clothing, thus these are often held responsible for spreading of infestations.
  • Sleeping in the same bed with a person who has lice. Since lice cannot fly, they can crawl from one’s head to the bed, and finally, to another human's head.

  • Acidic Drinks and Foods

At the end of the oesophagus, a ring of the valve is formed. Due to improper locking of the valve, the acid in the stomach moves to the oesophagus. This causes heartburn, and common heartburn frequently occurring during the week indicates acid reflux disease. People suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease will find acid reflux increasing their current symptoms. Make sure you don’t consume acidic food and drinks. Spicy foods, coffee, tomato sauce, citrus fruits, and juices must be strictly avoided.

  • Aerated Drinks

  • Saturated fats: Red meat, whole-fat dairy products, eggs, vegetable oils, such as palm oil, coconut oil, and cocoa butter. Saturated fat can increase your levels of "bad" LDL cholesterol and at the same time lowers triglycerides and nudges up levels of "good" HDL cholesterol. Hence, saturated fats should be taken in moderate quantities.
  • Trans fats: Pies, cakes, cookies, donuts, French fries, chips, Margarine, samosa, muffins, pan cakes, fried chicken and other fried items.

What Are The Worst Foods For Immunity building

  • Sugar and refined carbohydrates. High glycemic index carbohydrates and sugar wreak havoc on your body's immune system, by causing insulin spikes and blood sugar surges, increasing inflammation and lowering immunity.

  • Alcohol beverages: While studies are on to find out the link between alcohol and varicose veins, it is probably one of the worst foods to consume as it aggravates the problem. So avoid and try to stop consuming alcohol.
  • Foods containing Salt BPA: Bisphenol A is also known as BPA. This works as a chemical like an oestrogen that has been linked to greater risk of swollen veins. Several canned foods are stored in plastic cans containing BPA. So check the label for Bisphenol A and avoid eating too much of such foods.

What Are The Worst Foods For Head Lice

Few foods that are bad for sores and scabs formed by head lice:

What Are The Symptoms Of Head Lice

Head louse is a condition, which is almost asymptomatic, but the itching is the most common symptom.

  • Itching on and near the scalp, and on nearby areas commonly occurs because of an antigen production in reaction to the saliva of the louse. In the first infestation, one may not feel the itching for a month or two.
  • Visible Lice in hairs: Since the lice move very fast, they are troublesome to be seen, but sometimes they can be diligently spotted.
  • Nits on the hair roots: The lice eggs attach to the hair strands, although they are very difficult to be seen, as they grow in size they become tangible. They can be spotted mostly in the neck hairline and the hairs behind the ears. White nits or light-colored nits are empty and fairly easy to spot as they stick on the hair strands. Though the occurrence of nits doesn't determine a head lice infestation, yet soon they will grow to become lice.
  • Head lice also cause a tickling and feeling of some movement in the hair due to the crawling of the lice.

Causes of diseases where APIFIL LOTION 100ML is used

What Are The Causes Of Acne

  • Causes of acne are multifactorial. There are many myths surrounding causes and home remedies.
  • Genetics play the largest role (estimated in 80%) of acne cases.
  • Hormones, especially increased testosterone during puberty, play the second biggest role. Androgens increase the production of sebum by the skin’s oil glands as well as an increased production of cells found in the skin’s epidermis (top layer).
  • Hormonal changes during normal menstrual cycles, as well as pregnancy also play a role in women.
  • The bacteria, Propionibacterium Acnes, which is usually found on the skin, is another important role player. The areas of inflamed skin surrounding comedones make it easier for bacteria to accumulate and grow.
  • Although there are many myths surrounding diet in acne, there are few scientific conclusions around its actual role. Carbohydrates and milk products have shown some suggested links, but none are definitive.
  • Facial hygiene is important, but plays a small role, especially in severe acne.    

What Are The Causes Of Psoriasis

  • Weak immunity, in which white blood cells start attacking skin cells mistakenly.

What Are The Causes Of Asthma

  • Mostly asthma starts in childhood and is often outgrown in early adulthood. Some asthmatics may, however, need treatment lifelong.
  • Asthma has a strong genetic component and is part of the so-called "atopic triad" in childhood which includes allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis (eczema) and asthma.
  • Early insult to a child's lungs such as neonatal pneumonia or bronchitis may play a role in developing asthma later.
  • People with asthma have individual triggers. These triggers are commonly sensitivities to house-dust mites, grass, pollen, animal dander, dairy, wheat, nuts and soy products. Chest infections, cold air or air pollution can also trigger an attack.
  • Adult onset starts in the early twenties. There is speculation about possible causes; genetics, smoking and a history of allergies seem to play the biggest part. It affects females more than males.
  • Asthma can be caused/ triggered due to any of the following reasons:

                 1. Airborne substances like pollen, dust mites, pet dander or particles of cockroach waste.

                 2. Respiratory infections such as common cold

                 3. Exercise-induced asthma

                 4. Cold air

                 5. Air pollutants like smoke

Asthma is a combination of environmental and genetic factors, as many people live in same conditions. Still, some people get asthma and some don’t.

What Are The Causes Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Some of the  factors that may cause Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are as follows:

Tobacco Smoking causes Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in developed countries. But in the developing countries, along with smoking, fumes also from burning fuel in homes and industries lead to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Up to twenty to thirty percent of persistent smokers develop clinically apparent Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Most of the smokers with smoking histories for many years might produce a reduction in lung function.  Some of them develop a less frequent lung conditions. Without thorough evaluation, it’s hard to diagnose Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Know how lungs get affected

Via two large tubes called bronchi, the air travels down into the windpipe called trachea. The tubes get further divided into many branches like tree branches inside the lungs. The smaller tubes called as (bronchioles) and they end in a collection of tiny air sacs called alveoli.

The alveoli have a thin wall made up of small blood vessels called capillaries. The oxygen passes through the capillaries and reaches the bloodstream during the inhaling process. Simultaneously, the carbon dioxide comes out during the exhaling process.

The natural flexibility of the air sacs and bronchial tubes pushes air out of the body.  Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease makes the air sacs and tubes lose their flexibility. This leads to some air getting trapped in the lungs while exhaling.

Lack Of Alpha-1-Antitrypsin Protein

Close to one percent of the population gets affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease may result due to the inherited disorder. The lowering level of alpha-1-antitrypsin protein happens due to a genetic disorder. Liver prepares the Alpha-1-antitrypsin and secretes into the bloodstream. Thereby, protect the lungs. Lack of Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein will affect not only the liver but also the lungs. Such damage affects both children and adults due to passive smoking.

For adults with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease due to lack of Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein can be treated the same way others get treatment for the disease. Along with that replacing Alpha-1-antitrypsin protein can protect lungs from further damage.

What Are The Causes Of Hair fall, Alopecia

What Are The Causes Of Varicose veins

There are several causes of varicose veins. Below are the most common reasons why people suffer from swollen veins:

  • The most common causes for varicose veins are the valves in the body that allow for blood backflow. Increasing venous pressure causes the superficial veins to swell or twist. As there is not much muscular support for the top veins it causes them to become varicose.
  • Reasons that could cause varicosities are standing for too long or excessive abdominal pressure. Other reasons include chronic constipation, pregnancy, obesity and also tumours. However, tumours are the most uncommon causes of varicose veins.
  • Heredity is another factor why varicose veins could occur. This means that if you have a close blood relative who has this health issue then you may have this issue. So genetics also plays a role in the cause of varicose veins. The causes could also be any pressure inducing activities or conditions like pregnancy, constipation or obesity. This is because of excess pressure on the legs area.

What Are The Causes Of Head Lice

  • They transfer from one person to another due to a head to head contact directly or indirectly.
  • Since lice can survive for a short time on hair brushes, hats, and clothing, thus these are often held responsible for spreading of infestations.
  • Sleeping in the same bed with a person who has lice. Since lice cannot fly, they can crawl from one’s head to the bed, and finally, to another human's head.
