For Sinus and Nose problems, try taking steam inhalation for 3 times a day. If problem is not solved in 2-3 days, you may need additional medicines. Techniques to steam 1) Boil a pot of water. 2) Pour water into a large flat pan or bowl. If you use a casserole, water will remain warm for longer duration. 3) Place your head over the bowl at a distance of 1 feet. 4) Cover your head and bowl with a large towel (like a tent), take long breath through your nose and breath out through mouth. Take a break every 1-2 minutes until you feel relatively cooler. Do it for 10 minute twice or thrice a day. If you feel that the treatment is getting too much for you, raise the towel so that fresh air is brought into the area and breathe through your mouth a couple of times and then resume Take care - Take all precautions while dealing with hot water. Also, keep children away and wan others that you are dealing with boiling hot water. Other way is - by an Electric steamer available in market and take steam through it. It is more convenient.

After semen test and hsg, if both are normal, medicines are given from 2nd to 5th day for egg formation. Then an injection may be given around 15th day for ovulation. All this is monitored by ultrasound and most appropriate time is told to you to try for pregnancy. If this method fails for 3 cycles, go for ivf.

HbA1c% 7 means confirmed diabetes. If a person has confirmed diabetes, then proper treatment with anti-diabetic drugs is a must. Diabetes is a preventable disease, but only in pre-diabetes stage. Once it develops, then treatment with appropriate drugs plus diet control and exercise are required. There absolutely no other option. Dry fruits can be eaten but not date and resins. 5 to 8 almonds a day a few pieces of walnuts can be taken. At the most a single date may be taken and about a few resins, that too with excellent blood glucose control. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user, the incident which you stated is really weird. Immediately apply ice on your penis. The ice will have a two fold mechanism. It will decrease the burning sensation. At the same time it will help to make the penis more flaccid than normal stage which may help you to take out the neck of bottle from your penis.
