What are the symptoms of chickenpox? What type of diet should is right for consumption?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Most children with chickenpox have the following symptoms before the rash appears: Fever Headache Stomach ache The chickenpox rash occurs about 10 to 21 days after coming into contact with someone who had the disease. The average child develops 250 to 500 small, itchy, fluid-filled blisters over red spots on the skin. The blisters are usually first seen on the face, middle of the body, or scalp. After a day or two, the blisters become cloudy and then scab. Meanwhile, new blisters form in groups. They often appear in the mouth, in the vagina, and on the eyelids. Children with skin problems, such as eczema, may get thousands of blisters. Most pox will not leave scars unless they become infected with bacteria from scratching. Foods to eat: Oranges and other citrus fruits are excellent for the immune system. It is advisable to have one glass of orange juice daily. One important point to remember is that you should stay away from additives in juices. Natural fruit and vegetable juices are good for you at this time. Fresh vegetables and raw fruits are recommended as well. Herbal teas such as cinnamon, basil and chamomile are good too. Other foods that will help are carrots, cashew nuts, tofu, walnut, egg, ginger, garlic, beetroot, and blueberry and so on. It is also advisable to consume raw organic fruits and vegetables. Foods which contain a lot of water are recommended as well since the body can easily digest such foods and process the nutrients in them. Cucumber, tomatoes, spinach watermelon, kiwi, sprouts, and so on fall into this category of water rich foods. Food to avoided: Chicken pox food to avoid includes dairy products, meats, bread or any other kind of heavy food that is difficult for the body to process. Stay away from processed and junk foods as well. They have little or no nutritional value to offer the body. Red meat and fried foods or other similarly prepared foods should also be avoided when following a diet to cure chicken pox. An unhealthy diet with will not help the person’s immune system to produce antibodies to fight the infection.

Kegel - Untold Harmful Effects of The Exercise

MD-Ayurveda, Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Kegel - Untold Harmful Effects of The Exercise

What is Kegel?

Kegel is a type of an exercise that helps strengthen the pelvic floor muscles which support the bladder, the uterus, rectum and small intestine. This exercise can be performed at just about any time of the day, when you are getting bored at work or in bed before sleeping.

this exercise helps cure minor disorders such as stress incontinence (leakage of urine on doing any activity, as simple as sneezing), faecal incontinence (leaking stool) or urinary incontinence.

How to do this exercise?

To understand which muscles are involved in this, firstly you need to flex your muscles to stop urination in midstream. If you do it successfully, you have found your pelvic floor muscles. This is for women. As for men, the muscle that stops you or restricts you from passing gas is the muscle involved in this exercise. The Kegel exercise involves holding this muscle for several seconds and releasing it.

The Harmful Effects of Kegel:

While Kegel can have several benefits, but overdoing anything can cause negative side effects-

  1. Kegel exercises are known to be particularly beneficial for women. But in men, this exercise is shown to cause premature ejaculation. This is because the contraction of the prostate leads to the triggering of the sympathetic system that signals ejaculation.

  2. Using the right muscles for it is essential. If you do not know how to engage the right muscles, it is not recommended to carry on with it. Ask for help if you are unable to do it. Also, it is essential to not involve the abdomen muscles. It can result in more harm than good.

  3. The tightening of the pelvic floor muscles is a gradual process and doing the exercise more often than recommended does not expedite the process. If you do the exercise too often, then chances are you may strain the muscles and it can become tired and not able to do its function properly.

Ayurveda and Kegel:

  1. Ayurvedic drugs such as Ashwagandha (Withania somniferum) are medicines that should be used to treat complications caused due to Kegel exercises. It is a very powerful drug and has aphrodisiac properties as well. If. kegel. performed with the consumption of ayurvedic medicines(like Ashwagandharistha) will be safe and more beneficial.

Natural method of treatment. 1.Prepare coconut milk by grinding grated coconut and squeezing its milk. Apply coconut milk to your scalp by using hair brush. Cover your head with a towel and leave it for 20 minutes and rinse your hair with cold water. Do it once a week 2. Extract pulp content from the stalk of aloevera plant and rub to your hair which is washed before.

You can do once or twice, if holiday thrice. So do not bother about the numbers. Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instill fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

My smegma have been increased since 3-4 month. I wash it daily. But it is not control.

My smegma have been increased since 3-4 month. I wash it daily. But it is not control.
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Please do not panic or worry. The whitish substance is called smegma. Smegma is a combination of shed skin cells, skin oils, urine, sperm cells and moisture. It occurs in both male and female genital organs. In females, it collects around the clitoris and in males, smegma can collect under the foreskin. There is no evidence that smegma causes penile cancer, but its presence over a long period of time may irritate and inflame the penis, which may increase the risk of cancer. It may also make it harder to see very early cancers. Clean the area beneath your foreskin daily twice after pulling your foreskin back. Take care.

Good ​Afternoon, The kind of alarm that you have raised in itself goes to say that the act involved was not a safe one, although I do not have any information about the HIV status of your kind self or your partner whose vaginal fluid you are talking about here. I would advice you to abhor from unsafe sexual practices with unknown women in the first place. To answer your question specifically, the chance your contracting the HIV infection is very low to none at all since you only touched the head of your penis with your hand which was covered with vaginal fluid. I believe that you should get a baseline HIV-I and II testing done now and desist from high risk sexual activity before you get another test (ELISA or western blot) for HIV done after 3 months time which is confirmatory. If you continue to have anxiety or questions or concerns that are not addressed here I would be glad to help you out with those. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Better you go for food supplement i.e. Naturamore male powder, 1 spoon in morning and evening for 1 month. It will definitely give you result. All these starts appearing is due to lack of nutrition and stress in this today's world. Better just go for it. If you are not getting it anywhere, please let me know. I will provide you. Take care :)

As baby is gaining proper weight, it doesn't seem to be a serious issue. Just pat/burp him properly for 10 minutes, then make him lay down in lateral position, means on right side for half an hour. I hope it will be help you. If baby is quite irritable after vomiting and not gaining weight, then you should consult a pediatrician.

If you have recurrent attack of headache1. It could be a tension headache due to anxiety/stress, depression inadequate sleep, low bp/high bp, migraine, prolonged use of cell phone/computer, chronic anaemia, refractive error, chronic sinusitis, organic brain lesion 2.
