No matter how frequently you shampoo, your scalp produces the same amount of oil. Cutting back on shampooing will have no effect on your sebaceous glands; genetics and hormones determine the amount of oil they produce. 

How often you wash your hair depends on various factors, Well first of all everyone has different kind of hair. Washing too often, in fact, can do more harm than good, "It's paradoxical, but people who wash their hair a lot to get rid of oil are drying out their scalp and producing more oil Besides avoiding washing every day, there are other things to keep in mind when trying to determine the right amount of washing for you. 

Here are the three main important factors:

If your hair is anywhere from normal  to dry, you probably only need to wash it once or twice a week, if you have a greasy scalp, you probably need to wash your hair more often.

Coarse or curly hair slows down sebum's spread, so if you have hair like this you may only need to shampoo once a week. On the other hand, people with fine, straight hair will likely need to shampoo twice a week or more.

Another thing to consider is the paces you put your hair through styling and treating it. If your hair is processed or damaged by styling, you should wash it less frequently.

Plantar wart 

Often we get confused with warts, corns and callosities. And most of the people start treatment on their own. So its important for you to differentiate what is what!!!! The best judge for this is a dermatologist and to undergo a safe and hygienic treatment.

                                                                                                                                                                                Photo Credit : http://www.brightonpodiatry.com.au/


What are plantar warts?
plantar wart is a viral infection cause by human papilloma virus(HPV).

How do these appear?
At first these appear as a small shining ‘sago-grain’ like appearance with a rough, keratotic surface rounded by a smooth collar with thickened surface.

What are the common sites?
Most plantar warts are beneath pressure points, the heel .  Individuals may be affected by single or numerous lesions. 

Are these lesions painful?
Pain is a common but variable symptom. It may be severe and disabling but may be absent, and many warts are discovered only on routine inspection..

  • What are treatment options available?
  • Over-the-counter topical wart removers with varying amounts of salicylic acid. You can use liquids, gels, or pads. It’s also a good idea to soak the affected area in warm water for five minutes before applying the salicylic acid which will enhance the effects of the medication. It can take anywhere from 2 weeks to a few months for warts to resolve.
  • Cryotherapy Your doctor will use very cold liquid nitrogen to freeze the wart off.
  • Minor surgery  Your doctor may excise the wart (using local anaesthetic) if it has grown deeply into the skin and is causing a lot of pain.
Never, cut off a wart yourself; it can to lead to pain, stitches, infection, and scarring.Warts will eventually dissolve on their own, but it could as long as two years. Even if you successfully remove the wart, it can come back and spread, because the treatment doesn’t kill the virus that causes them.
