For a recurring subaceous cyst if its hot to touch is it too late to use turmeric or should I just get cut open again. It on lower back?

Infected?: Is it hot and red? If so, it may be infected and may require both antibiotics and surgical excision. See a doctor immediately to ascertain what is going on. Turmeric will not help an acute infection. Besides, turmeric hasn't been definitively proven in human studies to have any specific reliable benefits. Also, not well absorbed without piperine. ...Read more

I keep reading about the use of turmeric for help in the prevention of cancer, specifically pancreatic. Any truth to this and if so, how to take it?

Flavor: Turmeric may prevent cancer, but you should use it for flavor rather than its ability to prevent cancer, which may or may not work out. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Can I get rid of acne spot Using turmeric powder with yoghurt face mask? I want to use natural ingredient because I cannot afford high end product

How severe is it?: Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related disease that is a grave personal and professional liability. While pregnant, topical benzoyl peroxide is your best friend and is about as cheap as toothpaste at a pharmacy. Price is not a concern if you fail a job interview because of acne -- right or wrong, people regard it as a sign of poor self care. Do right by yourself and your family. Best. ...Read more

I have acne & can I use an Ayurvedic soap free acne face wash which contains neem & turmeric as main ingredients and it has also no harmful chemicals?

This sounds okay: Dr. Baker is one of my favorite teammates here and he's almost certainly right about when it's okay to use ayurvedic remedies as your major treatment and when they're only adjuncts. Retinoic acid is a mainstay of acne treatment and as a vitamin, it may also appeal to you. Enjoying your body is not a health problem and not the cause of your acne. Embrace who you are and be healthy. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I could use orange peel, neem, turmeric and milk face pack for acne scars?

It won't work: No "pop" remedy will help. I'm sorry you ended up with acne scars in the first place. It means your disease was neglected -- all acne is manageable nowadays using scientific rx. If it was neglected because someone "believed in natural healing", I hope this helps you see through the sham. A dermatologist or plastic surgeon can use microsurgery, laser or filler to make the scars less visible. ...Read more
