Can home-made or natural remedies be trusted? Are they a better alternative to visiting a dermatologist?
It’s a common tendency among patients to follow home-made or natural remedies suggested by their friends and family when they notice a skin or hair problem. However, you should know that such remedies are questionable when it comes to results. They may show results in some people, whereas others’ conditions could unaffected. What’s more, you never know if a remedy is suitable for your skin or hair type or not. If you are allergic to a particular remedy, things may only get worse for you.
Another fact about such treatments is that they produce slow results, if at all. Because of which, they are good as precautionary measures, but not as treatments!
Dermatologists often get patients who had followed home-made remedies but didn’t see any results. But by that time, their condition had even worsened.
So visiting a dermatologist is the right thing to do when you notice a problem. It would save your time, efforts and your skin/hair.
