How to manage severe dandruff and fat boils?
Q: In every winter, my hand and leg skin peels off. Initially it starts with small boils with lots of itch on paws. I have a lot of dandruff on head and shoulders. I get pimples all over my body, mainly on shoulders, back, head and face. Recently I started getting small fat bolls at all muscle areas. Once I had been to a skin specialist. He gave me medicines for dandruff and pimples. But he said about the fat bolls as hereditary. But still I am worried as I am finding them in new places regularly and growing slowly. For very less time dandruff was in control after that again it became as usual. I even tried Homeopathy medicines. But no results. Please suggest a remedy.
A:Fat boils may be lipomas. No need for treatment unless for cosmetic purposes. Treatment for dandruff - ketoconazole shampoo - daily use for 3 weeks, followed by twice weekly use for 3 weeks, and then maintain with once weekly use. You should shampoo daily (non medicated shampoo - on interval days) and not use any hair oil/creams or gels.
