Suggest some remedy for constipation, I have to laxative on daily basis to get relived.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Suggest some remedy for constipation, I have to laxative on daily basis to get relived.
The first line of treatment that almost everyone resorts to is that of taking laxatives. It is likely to be any of the most frequently advertised one bought over the counter. It may even be something recommended by an elder in the family. The biggest disadvantage of such laxatives is that they are habit forming. Once you start takingthem, you cannot leave them. Otherwise, you will not be able to evacuate your bowels in a satisfactory manner. Here, Homeopathy offers the biggest advantage. The homeopathic medicines do not work as laxatives. This means that you should not expect them to work as short term quick fixes. Rather, they work to improve the digestive system which has lost its proper and smooth functioning. The peristaltic movement of the intestines, which is responsible for pushing out the waste matter is often compromised in patients who are constipated. Homeopathy  intends to cure the root cause of constipation. It is therefore natural that these medicines are going to take some time to get things going. Ultimately, it is effective at restoring this peristaltic movement to the normal self You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Back to front or front it is not matter. You wear condom before sperm comes it is important. If your wear in any manner. In that case there is no chance of getting h I v. So please do not worry and do not think about this. You have fear like this it is better to not attend this type of programmes. Better to keep away. Masturbation is very good method to relax yourself. But it may not exceed. It should be also one or two times a week. So do not feel and do not worry. Feel always comfortable and be happy.

I'm a male 30yrs old. My penis length is 5cm when flacid and 11cm when erect. Is this a normal size for an adult or should I consult a doctor for further observation? thanks.

DGO, MBBS
Sexologist,
Penis size cannot be increased, unless you have hormonal problems size of penis varies from person to person, like other physical features like height etc. On an average, it ranges from 3.5 inches to 5.5 inches on erection. In pornographic films they show big penis by injecting drugs etc. Which is harmful, so most people have wrong ideas about penis size.

Dear Sir,
I am suffering from Diabetes from last 5-6 years, but about 3-4 months I feeling very weakness, nervousness.
Jamun is a very good ayurvedic source to keep diabetes in check and so is methi dana and bitter gourd. 1. Mix ½ tsp Turmeric Powder + 1 tsp Amla Powder + ½ tbsp Methi Seeds Powder in half glass of water and take daily in the morning on empty stomach. You can also grow methi sprouts and eat them. 2. Remove the skin and seeds of 4-5 bitter gourds. Crush them to a make a paste. Press this paste on a sieve an extract the juice. Drink this juice on an empty stomach every morning. 3. Boil 1 L of water. Let it simmer for 20 min on low flame. While simmering, add 3 tsp of cinnamon powder. Strain the mixture. Drink entire amount of this water everyday. 4. Take a tablespoon of jamun powder everyday.

Symptoms, Treatment and Complications of Dermatitis Herpetiformis

MBBS, Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL), DNB (Dermatology), MNAMS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Symptoms, Treatment and Complications of Dermatitis Herpetiformis

Dermatitis Herpetiformis is a condition in which there are constant and painful eruptions of rashes and subsequent itching. They mostly develop on the knees, scalps, buttocks and the back. This rash is indicative of your allergy to gluten. A strict adherence to a gluten-free diet is essential for people suffering from this disease. The primary cause of dermatitis herpetiformis is celiac disease.

Celiac Disease:

Gluten is a protein which is present in wheat and rye. People who have allergy to gluten are said to be suffering from Celiac disease. Dermatitis Herpetiformis, in turn, occurs in people who suffer from Celiac disease. An antibody called immunoglobulin, made to combat with gluten proteins reacts with gluten causing violent eruptions of rashes and subsequent bouts of itching.

There are various, perceptible symptoms of dermatitis herpetiformis. Some of them are:

  1. Sensation of Burning: Before visible rashes appear on the body, your skin may suffer from a constant sensation of burning. The area where it does take place is where the rashes erupt later on.

  2. Outbreak of Rash: One of the most common conditions symptomatic of dermatitis herpetiformis is an outbreak of rashes in the elbows, shoulders and scalp. These rashes are an extreme cause of discomfort as they itch continuously. If you notice rashes on these parts of the body that recover themselves only to erupt again later, chances are high that you are suffering from dermatitis herpetiformis.

  3. Bumps: Along with rashes, another important symptom of dermatitis herpetiformis is the eruption of even sized bumps all over the body. They are filled with liquids which have the ability to heal themselves but they quickly re-appear, leaving behind a purple color mark on the body.

Though various treatments have developed to treat dermatitis herpetiformis, there are many medical complications that this disease entails. Some of them are:

  1. Intestinal Cancer: Celiac disease causes damage of the intestines. Therefore if you are suffering from it for a long time, the continuous inflammation of the intestine causes intestinal cancer.

  2. Anemia: If you are suffering from dermatitis herpetiformis, the intestines refuse to absorb nutrients. If such a condition persists, chances are you may suffer from anemia and deficiencies of certain vitamins.

If you wish to discuss about any specific skin problem, you can consult a specilized dermatologist and ask a free question.

I am 32 years old, weight 50 kgs, my penis bend while putting inside the vagina during the time of intercourse.

If you didnot have a bent penis from before and if this bend has happened after a particular act, it could mean the penis has become" fractured" there is no bone in the penis. The penis gets its hardness due to the blood supply to the penis which swell s up the penis into a hard erection. Erections need not be bone hard (like forehead) but they need to be firm (like the tip of nose. To enter the vagina. Often some men complain of a bend after a sex act, because the tube which are to hold the penis have got" weakened or torn" as a result the erect penis appears as if bent at a spot. In some men the loosening of the erection could also be a problem and it could be due to the penis getting drained off the blood prematurely, befor ejaculation! for differentiating between these conditions, you must visit a urologist. Who can help assess the conditions after doing some etsts liek doppler studies of penis and examination. Do not neglect this. Meet a urologist asap.

Hi Doctors, My 3 years old son is started stammering since last 4 months. Please Suggest what to do.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stammering can be made lesser only and only by Speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, I'd suggest you to visit a Psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

Diabetic Macular Edema - Know More About It!

DOMS, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Diabetic Macular Edema - Know More About It!

 Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) is an accumulation of fluid in the macula(part of the retina that controls our most detailed vision abilities)due to leaking blood vessels. DME develops in eyes wth diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a disease that damages the blood vessels in the retina, resulting in vision impairment. Left untreated, these blood vessels begin to build up pressure in the eye and leak fluid, causing DME.

DME is associated with: 

  1. Those who have had diabetes for an extended amount of time
  2. Severe hypertension (high blood pressure)
  3. Fluid retention
  4. Hypoalbuminemia (low levels of protein in body fluids)
  5. Hyperlipidemia (high levels of fats in the blood)

Symptoms: Common symptoms of DME are

  1. Blurry vision
  2. Floaters
  3. Double vision
  4. Eventually blindness if it goes untreated

Who is at risk of diabetic macular oedema:

About 1 in 3 people with diabetes develop macular Eedema. People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at a higher risk of getting diabetic macular oedema. Also other risk factors are:

  1. Poor control of blood sugars
  2. High blood pressure
  3. High cholesterol level
  4. Pregnancy
  5. In smokers

How is diabetic macular oedema detected:
Diabetic macular oedema can be detected during regular visits to the doctor. Patients with diabetes should be offered screening tests. Digital photographs of the patients can be taken as they show the early signs of diabetic macular oedema, though changes in vision might not be noticed at this time.

What happens when you attend the medical retina clinic:
When you go for an eye checkup you will undergo a comprehensive examination which includes:

  1. Visual acuity test: This is a sight test which measures how well you can see the different distances
  2. Eye pressure test: This test is done to measure the pressure of the eyes and usually drops which numb the eyes are used when this test is conducted
  3. Dilated eye examination: In this the drops are placed in the eye to dilate the pupils and then the back of the eye is examined.
  4. Fluorescein angiography: This is a diagnostic test in which an injection of fluorescein dye is given in the hand and then the photographs are taken.
  5. Optical coherence tomography: This is done to measure the retinal swelling

How to reduce the risks of diabetic macula oedema:
The risk of diabetic macula oedema can be reduced by quitting smoking, and to make sure that blood sugar and cholesterol levels are under control. This is achieved by regularly measuring the cholesterol and blood sugar levels. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ophthalmologist.
