You seem to be suffering from chronic allergic rhinitis and some secondary infection causing otitis in the middle ear through the eustachian tubes from throat to ear. Avoid forceful blowing of nose because the internal pressure makes the throat infection to reach the ear tubes. Do hot saline gargles. Prevent exposure to dust and pollens. Get examined by an ent specialist and follow his advice.

Migrae migraine is more of a preventable disease than curative. You have to identify the triggers of your headache and avoid them. Avoid exposure to bright light, loud sound, sunlight. Avoid stress. Avoid chocolate and coffee. Have enough sleep. Drink 3-4 litres of water daily. I can prescribe you prophylactic medicines too if you want.

Put a cold, damp towel on your skin. Do this for 10 or 15 minutes a few times every day. That will help take some of the heat out of your skin. You also can take frequent cool baths or showers to help relieve the pain. As soon as you get out of the bathtub or shower, gently pat yourself dry, but leave a little water on your skin. Then, apply a moisturizer to help trap the water in your skin. This will help ease the dryness.

At the time little excitation in pennis leakage happeniig soon. What is the remedies?

It's called premature ejaculation. Get relaxed as anxiety will increase the problem. Consult doctors. Simple change in techniques often help, if not you can take drugs.
