This may be duebto viral infection. Do regular warm gargle. Have homemade freshly prepared lemon juice which is rich in vitamin c thereby increasing your body autoimmune which prevent infection. Things will be alright.

I am aged 23 (F) and having severe ulcers in my tongue which don't seem to go even after applying smile on them regularly and having Vitamin B12 capsules daily since last 10-15 days. Please advise. Thanks.

First thing we need to notice the reason behind these ulcers. In most of the cases it heals by vitamin b complex. Not just vitamin b 12. If not responding after that there must be a local reason like sharp edges or rough surface of tooth. Which inturn not sllowing ulcers to heal. Reduce amount of stress if any, take plenty of water.

For Premature ejaculation #Generally average sex time ranges from 5 to 15 min. #Sex time differs from person to person. Individual capacities. No comparisons. # lots of Causes for PE including sex harmones imbalances, neuromuscular weaknesses, Infections,Stress ejaculatory system problems etc. # Treatment depends up on the cause of PE. # Advices 1.Excercise -kegel's, pelvic floor excercise 2.Yogasanas- Dhanurasan, Vajrasan,Halasan, Bhujnagasan,Pavanmuktasan 3.Start stop sex method. 4.Penis squeeze method 5.Managing stress anxiety 6.Wearing thick condoms 7.

I am a recently diabetic patient. I have tention very much regularly and then please tell me simple care tips.
For a diabetic it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Exercise and stay active. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well. It's all a matter of discipline.

Dear lybrate-user First of all please be assured that masturbation is completely nornal process and has got no sideeffects so far your myths areconcerned. Yes something's which we need to know is that masturbation is bettr to be done with full errection stage. Next the spermatogenesis is a continuous process, so far as your nutrition is ok, sperms will be healthy. More over there are also tests for sperm count and motility, but I ll advise not to go for that now. Marry soon, have a great life & keep smiling. Hope this helps welcome for further queries.

Sir,
I have hemorrhoids. will be having more pain in during long time in travelling. Please help.
However, the management depends on grade of piles: 1. Grade 1, 2 and 3(asymptomatic) requires nonsurgical measures which includes avoidance of NSAIDs (painkillers), and spicy fatty food. Increased dietary fiber and adequate water/ fluid intake. Seitz bath: Fill the bathtub with about 2 to 3 inches of warm water. It doesn’t take a lot of water - only a couple of inches. Don't add shower gel, bubble bath, or any type of soap. The temperature should be lukewarm and comfortable to the touch. Sit in the tub, making sure your private area is covered. Soak up to three times a day for 10 to 15 minutes. Afterward, gently pat the area dry using a soft towel. Grade 3 symptomatic and grade 4 piles requires surgical intervention.

Dear lybrate user, sperm cells are being continuously produced inside human testis. A single sperm cell needs about 4 months to mature before being ejaculated. Masturbating ejaculates many mature as well as immature sperm & results in the temporary deficit of sperm count. This loss of sperm results in the increased production of sperm. A sperm is mainly made up of protein. An increased production of sperm count needs a steady supply of protein. This supply of protein is met from the amount of protein we intake daily. Over masturbation increases the rate of production of sperm to such extent that the demand for protein cannot be fulfilled naturally & it often results in breakdown of protein from muscle tissues. This breakdown of muscle tissues is externally manifested as fatigue, weakness etc. Addiction to masturbation denotes that you are continuously indulged in sexual thoughts. This type of thoughts is common in people who live a sedentary life. If you really have a sedentary life-style you should get yourself out from it immediately. Socialize yourself. Do some physical exercise daily. Drink a lots of water. Create a routine of your daily schedule & maintain it. Stop watching porn in case you have developed a habit of watching it also you can take homoeopathic mother tincture origanum q, 10 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to control your excessive sexual desire. However, you can masturbate for twice in a week.

Hi, premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes. Pe is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction. It has probably affected every man at some point in his life. The main symptom is an uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after intercourse begins. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Premature ejaculation may occur with a new partner. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can also cause it. In some cases, it may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines. In many cases premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. For some men, stopping or cutting down on the use of alcohol, tobacco, or illegal drugs may improve how well they can control ejaculation. We recommend that you and your partner practice certain techniques to help delay ejaculation. For example, 1. You may learn to identify and control the sensations that lead up to ejaculation. 2. You may learn to communicate with your partner to slow or stop stimulation. 3. You can try using a condom to reduce sensation to the penis. 4. Or you can try a different position (such as lying on your back) during intercourse.

Reap DSR is not antibiotic. It is having antacid action reducing acid secretion in your stomach. If your symptoms are relieved, it is ok. But it is always better to take any medicine only under expert advice after consulting a doctor at least in the future.

If my penis is small than the average penis size is there any cure for it and does women pleasure depend on penis size.

BHMS, DEMS
Homeopath, Pune
If my penis is small than the average penis size is there any cure for it and does women pleasure depend on penis size.
The length is not enough the act of sex should be satisfying from the point of view of both girl and boy. Boys' penises start to grow during puberty achieving between 2 and 5 inches (5 - 13 cm) in length. Penis with length of 3 inches or below while erection is termed as micropenis. With micropenis one cannot satisfy his female partner with penis only. Penis size 3-5 while erection comes in category of small penis, but these persons can satisfy female partners though females get a sense of somewhat short/lacking length at times. In homeopathy there are many remedies who help to increase sexual intercourse time and improve the penis health. Homeopathy helps to remove the problems from the root level. Homeopathic remedy easily removes the main cause from the root level according to the proper symptoms. Then the sexual intercourse time improves automatically and male organ become strong and thick.
