Do no worry. Mostly viral fever to start with is high grade and settles in 3 to 4 days. You can give paracetamol sos. If your child is well looking most fever subside without any antibiotics. If fever is persistent or there are abnormal symptoms like vomiting drowsiness loose motion then consult your pediatrician.

These factors lead to narrowing to blood vessels supplying nutrition to penis and other genitals and fibrosis (making non flexible) of elastic penile muscle which is responsible for stretching during erection. These factors result in weak libido, loose erection and early ejaculation, it can also effect your orgasmic pleasure. You problems can be treated with the help of medications.

For what reason operation was done? was that simple ear drum reconstruction (myringoplasty) or mastoid surgery? it can be due to bppv also which can be diagnosed and treated by a manouvre/exercise. Giddiness may also be due to some ear infection/disease (cholesteatoma) damaging the balance organ of ear. U should consult an ent specialist to find out any underlying pathology.

Tips To Overcome Sugar Addiction

M.Sc -Food and Nutrition, B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist

You can be very much addicted to having sugar that many a times you might find it difficult to cut down on the amount of your intake. You might find it impossible to stop eating sugar. You might crave to have anything which has a lot of sugar in it.

Why is it bad?

Sugar is a fattening compound as it contains fructose. Sugar causes you to overeat, which in turn causes weight gain. It can bring anatomical changes in the brain, which gets you into an addiction. Sugar addiction is just like any other addiction, like that with nicotine or any other drugs. The only difference is the substance being used. Sugar can mess with the chemical balance of the brain to make you crave for it more.

How to overcome it?

To overcome sugar addiction, here are a few steps you can take:

  1. Observe yourself: This is the first step you should take. Observe what you eat, how much of sugar it contains. Take a note of how you feel after having sugar or something, which is laden with sugar. Keep a diary entry of whatever you observe about yourself and your sugar consumption.
  2. Practice self care: It is extremely difficult for any sugar addict to transition into a diet without any sugar or low sugar content. You will have to take it slow and add regular practice of self care. Do not avoid breakfast every morning. Remember to add in the required amount of fats and proteins (learn more about the Importance of Protein). Do not skip out on meals. Drink a lot of water and fluids like fresh fruit juice and sleep for at least 7 hours or more so that you get proper rest.
  3. Be honest with yourself: If you are trying to get rid of the sugar addiction, you have to be extremely honest without yourself. If you succumb to temptation and end up eating a few too many candies, then be honest with yourself and admit it. Make it a point to overcome the temptation the next time.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Some men are indeed endowed with a lot of foreskin tissue, and occasionally this can interfere with normal sexual function. If a doctor confirms what you say by physical examination, a circumcision operation can easily be arranged whereby all your problems would be solved.
