What is urticaria(Hives)?

What is Urticaria(Hives)?

Hives are a red, raised, itchy skin rash that is sometimes triggered by an allergen. An allergen is something that produces an allergic reaction.
It is also known as urticaria, welts, weals, or nettle rash.

When an allergic reaction occurs, the body releases a protein called histamine. When histamine is released, the tiny blood vessels known as capillaries leak fluid. The fluid accumulates in the skin and causes a rash.
Hives affect around 20 percent of people at some time in their life.
It is not contagious.

Types:

There are two types of hives - short-lived (acute) and long-term (chronic). Neither is typically life-threatening, though any swelling in the throat or any other symptom that restricts breathing requires immediate emergency care.

Causes:

Urticaria occurs when the body reacts to an allergen and releases histamine and other chemicals from under the surface of the skin.

The histamine and chemicals cause inflammation and fluid to accumulate under the skin, causing wheals.

Examples of known triggers include:

  • Medications, including some antibiotics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin and ACE inhibitors, used for high blood pressure
  • Foods, such nuts, shellfish, food additives, eggs, strawberries, and wheat products
  • Infections, including influenza, the common cold, glandular fever, and hepatitis B
  • bacterial infections, including urinary tract infections and strep throat
  • Intestinal parasites
  • Extreme temperatures or changes in temperature
  • High body temperature
  • Pet dander from dogs, cats, horses, and so on
  • Dust mites
  • Cockroaches and cockroach waste
  • Latex
  • Pollen
  • Some plants, including nettles, poison ivy, and poison oak
  • Insect bites and stings
  • Some chemicals
  • chronic illness, such as thyroid disease or lupus
  • Sunlight exposure
  • Water on the skin
  • Scratching
  • Exercise

In over half of all cases, people never find the exact cause.

Chronic urticaria may start as an autoimmune response, but why it happens is unclear.

Symptoms:

Symptoms can last anywhere from minutes to months - or even years.

While they resemble bug bites, hives (also known as urticaria) are different in several ways:

Hives can appear on any area of the body; they may change shape, move around, disappear and reappear over short periods of time.
The bumps - red or skin-colored “wheals” with clear edges - usually appear suddenly and go away just as quickly.
Pressing the center of a red hive makes it turn white - a process called “blanching.”

Diagonsis:

A single episode of hives does not usually call for extensive testing. If a food allergy is suspected, consider keeping track of what you eat. This will help you discover whether there is a link between what you’re eating and when you break out with hives.

Chronic hives should be evaluated by an allergist, who will ask about your and your family’s medical history, substances to which you are exposed at home and at work, exposure to pets or other animals and any medications you’ve taken recently. If you have been keeping a food diary, show it to your allergist.

Your allergist may want to conduct skin tests, blood tests and urine tests to identify the cause of your hives. If a specific food is the suspected trigger, your allergist may do a skin-prick test or a blood test to confirm the diagnosis; once the trigger is identified, you’ll likely be advised to avoid that food and products made from it. In rare instances, the allergist may recommend an oral food challenge - a carefully monitored test in which you’ll eat a measured amount of the suspected trigger to see if hives develop. If a medication is suspected as the trigger, your allergist can conduct similar tests, and a cautious drug challenge - similar to an oral food challenge, but with medications - may also be needed to confirm the diagnosis. Because of the possibility of anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction, these challenge tests should be done only under strict medical supervision, with emergency medication and equipment at hand.

In cases where vasculitis may be the cause, your allergist may conduct a skin biopsy and send it to a dermatopathologist to examine under a microscope.

The cause of chronic hives is often difficult to identify.

Role of Homeopathy:

Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that the treatment focuses on the patient as a person as well as his pathological condition. The medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution and so on.
Homeopathy provides natural constitutional remedies for treating this condition from the roots and not just working on the symptom but repairs the derangement which is causing this. It offers excellent treatment which is effective, harmless, and without any side effects. It is also recommended in the most obstinate cases.

Today homeopathic remedies are the best non surgical solution for all.

What is Pneumonia?

What is pneumonia?

Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs. It can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Bacterial pneumonia is the most common type in adults. Pneumonia causes inflammation in the air sacs in your lungs, which are called alveoli. The alveoli fill with fluid or pus, making it difficult to breathe.

Causes of Pneumonia:

Micro organisms including bacteria, virus, and fungi can cause pneumonia. The common bacteria for pneumonia include streptococcus pneumonia, Hemophilus influenza, and klebsiella pneumonia. Influenza virus causes pneumonia of viral origin, and adenovirus and rhinovirus pneumonia from fungi affect immuno-compromised patients. Fungi such as candida albicans, Histoplasma capsulatum, and Apergillus fumigates, are the fungi that are involved in causing pneumonia. Cigarette smokingasthmaCOPDliver disease, and a weak immune system are risk factors for pneumonia.

Symptoms:

The symptoms of pneumonia include a productive coughchest pain on taking deep breaths or while coughing, difficulty in breathing, shortness of breath, fever, and chills. The phlegm may be rust-colored, blood stained, purulent, yellowish or greenish. Other attending symptoms are nauseavomiting, and fatigue.

Diagnosis:

  • A blood test- This test can confirm an infection, but it may not be able to identify what’s causing it.
  • A sputum test- This test can provide a sample from your lungs that may identify the cause of the infection.
  • Pulse oximetry- An oxygen sensor placed on one of your fingers can indicate whether your lungs are moving enough oxygen through your bloodstream.
  • A urine test- This test can identify the bacteria Streptococcus pneumonia and Legionella pneumophila.
  • A CT scan- This test provides a clearer and more detailed picture of your lungs.
  • A fluid sample- If your doctor suspects there is fluid in the pleural space of your chest, they may take fluid using a needle placed between your ribs. This test can help identify the cause of your infection.
  • A bronchoscopy- This test looks into the airways in your lungs. It does this using a camera on the end of a flexible tube that’s gently guided down your throat and into your lungs. Your doctor may do this test if your initial symptoms are severe, or if you’re hospitalized and your body is not responding well to antibiotics.

Role of homeopathy:

homeopathic treatment for pneumonia. It works well when chest pain accompanies pneumonia. The pain is stitching in nature. Chest pains get worse on coughing and deep breathing. While coughing, the patient needs to hold the chest because of the intense pain. Expectoration of rust or brick colored sputa is another characteristic feature. Along with these symptoms, there is difficulty in breathing, and there may be fever accompanied by chills.

Sexual Disorders - 7 Aphrodisiacs That Can Help!

Ayurveda is a field where the medicinal properties of the various herbs used have been proven scientifically, over the years. This ancient life science also brings in a knowledge base that can help in treating a variety of ailments. Sexual dysfunction is one such ailment which can leave a person with a less than stellar sex life. The various phases of sexual activity from stimulation to excitement and gratification can suffer due to such ailments which can prevent any or all phases from occurring in the first place. The disorders can affect the ejaculation, potency, orgasm and arousal as well.

There are a variety of herbs that act as aphrodisiacs in ayurveda that can help in treating sexual disorders in males and females, as follows.

1. Nutmeg: nutmeg powder and extract can be used by men who are suffering from sexual dysfunction. It can also increase the potency and the libido of the male patients who ingest it. This herb can also be used by women who are experiencing lack of libido and stimulation. Many women in Africa have used this herb since ancient times to build better sexual health.

2. Date palm pollen: the pollen from date palms can help in increasing the sperm count of the male patient who has a low sperm count. This aphrodisiac also improves male fertility. 

3. Ashwagandha: this is a good aphrodisiac for both male and female patients who are undergoing sexual disorders. It can help in sexual stimulation even as it fixes issues like lack of libido and erectile dysfunction. 

4. Fadogia agretis: this herb can help in increasing the testosterone level which is responsible for better sexual stimulation and other sexual functions in male patients. 

5. Lepidium meyenii: this is a herb that has originated in peru and is also known as maca. This herb can help in fixing infertility in male and female patients. It contains various elements like sterols, campesterol and sitosterol among many others that can improve fertility.

6. Saffron: this herb is known to boost the libido by leaps and bounds and is even used to garnish a hot glass of milk just before bed time, as it acts as a good aphrodisiac when combined with milk. A strand or two can work wonders, as per ayurvedic practices. 

7. Passion flower: this is considered as a good aphrodisiac because it helps in reducing anxiety and stress which can soothe a person and create a better environment for stimulation and excitement. It can be used by male and female patients alike. 

There are many herbs as per ayurveda, which can be used as aphrodisiacs in order to cure sexual disorders. These can be taken on a regular basis, in moderation. 

All About Low Sperm Count!

Doctor In Unani Medicine(D.U.M.B.I.M)

All About Low Sperm Count!

 

Low sperm count- Low sperm count means that the fluid (semen) you ejaculate during an orgasm contains fewer sperm than normal.

A low sperm count is also called oligospermia (ol-ih-go-SPUR-me-uh). A complete absence of sperm is called azoospermia. Your sperm count is considered lower than normal if you have fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen. Having a low sperm count decreases the odds that one of your sperm will fertilize your partner's egg, resulting in pregnancy. Nonetheless, many men who have a low sperm count are still able to father a child.

Symptoms-

The main sign of low sperm count is the inability to conceive a child. There might be no other obvious signs or symptoms. In some men, an underlying problem such as an inherited chromosomal abnormality, a hormonal imbalance, dilated testicular veins or a condition that blocks the passage of sperm may cause signs and symptoms.

Low sperm count symptoms might include:-

  •     Problems with sexual function — for example, low sex drive or difficulty maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  •     Painswelling or a lump in the testicle area
  •     Decreased facial or body hair or other signs of a chromosome or hormone abnormality

I'm 18 years old. I'm suffering with masturbation addiction still from 4 years. It increases day by day. I'm getting very weak and I want to stop it. What should I do for this?

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, First of all I would like to emphasize that Masturbation in itself is not pathological, it's a natural process by which one seeks sexual pleasure. However, making it a very ritualistic behavior is dangerous as it leads to preoccupation, inability to enjoy other sexual pleasures & fatigue. Try setting a time bound pattern of getting into masturbatory act & not to get preoccupied with it all the time. Remember Sexuality is only a part of our lifestyle & other things should also be given due share. If you still feel troubled do take a personal consultation.

Diabetes - 10 Exercises That Can Surely Help!

Diabetes - 10 Exercises That Can Surely Help!

Exercise has a considerable number of benefits to offer people who have diabetes. As a result of doing exercise on a regular basis, the blood sugar level stays in check. Managing diabetes without indulging in any physical activity is near to no good as exercise is the backbone of diabetes treatment. Here are the ten exercises that prove to be great for people with diabetes.

  1. Walking: Walking is considered to be one of the best exercises for treating diabetes and the most prescribed physical activity for people with Type 2 diabetes. A daily brisk walking of at least 30 minutes can be the easiest way of increasing one’s physical activity level.
  2. Running/jogging: By jogging or running daily, people can control their blood pressure and ensure good heart condition. It proves to be extremely beneficial for diabetes people who often develop risks of heart attacks or high blood pressure.
  3. Weight training: As regular weight training helps in building the muscle mass, opting for this becomes necessary for people with Type 2 diabetes. Because losing muscle mass means difficulty in maintaining the blood sugar levels.
  4. Tai Chi: Tai Chi helps in relaxing the body and mind as well as ensures trouble-free body movements. Tai Chi plays a crucial role in reducing stress and nerve damage, which is a common complication in diabetes.
