That's nature : Many factors, age, diet, stress, environment, etc. In addition, genetically speaking, although similar, you are not identical to your parents dna. In addition your age by itself, and higher levels of hormones may also have an effect on acne.

Please suggest a homeopathic medicine for my mother suffering from interstitial lung disease.?

Individualized: Homeopaths treat the whole person, not specific diagnoses. Homeopathy is highly individualized, so 5 people with interstitial lung disease would likely require 5 different medicines. I advise your mother see a professional homeopath: http://nationalcenterforhomeopathy.Org/resources/practitioners.

Dr. Lessnau, like many doctors, is strongly biased against homeopathy. An objective evaluation of the large body of science on this subject recently conducted by the Swiss government concluded homeopathy is effective.

What can I do to get my left eye to stop twitching?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Jeffrey Gold
Ophthalmology 53 years experience
Eyelid soaks/scrubs: One of the most common causes of eyelid twitches is inflammation in the oil glands of the eyelashes. Search "blepharitis". Hot compresses followed by scrubbing the edge of the eyelid with q-tip wet with hot water and a tiny dab of johnson's baby shampoo and control (but not cure) blepharitis.
