Whenever I feel aroused some colorless liquid oozes from tip of my penis? Is it normal?

Whenever I feel aroused some colorless liquid oozes from tip of my penis? Is it normal?
It is prostetic or mucus. This happens to lubricate the partner also. So normal unless its volume is more or if it is foul smelling then a check up is needed.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes mellitus is a disease due to either insulin deficiency or resistance to its actio or both, particularly if it is t2 dm. In t1 dm there is no insulin at all. Treatment of diabetes depends on the type of the disease. Another important thing to be remembered is that treatment will continue for life time. There is no cure for the disease. I could not follow your query on" elctronic media" to be attached to the body, there is nothing of that sort at least for now. She will need proper treatment with appropriate drugs, diet control and regular exercise and weight control.

It is normal. It will take some times to cope up. Before penetrate you should wait till your partner is more irritated and ask you repeatedly to enter to her. On the hand you should find out how she gets irritation.

What are the symptoms of dengue and what precautions are to be taken in case if we suffer from dengue.

Homeopath, Faridabad
What are the symptoms of dengue and what precautions are to be taken in case if we suffer from dengue.
Hi, Dengue fever, also known as breakbone fever, is a mosquito-borne tropical disease caused by the dengue virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash that is similar to measles. In a small proportion of cases, the disease develops into the life-threatening dengue hemorrhagic fever, resulting in bleeding, low levels of blood platelets and blood plasma leakage, or into dengue shock syndrome, where dangerously low blood pressure occurs. Dengue is transmitted by several species of mosquito within the genus Aedes, principally A. Aegypti. The virus has five different types; infection with one type usually gives lifelong immunity to that type, but only short-term immunity to the others. Subsequent infection with a different type increases the risk of severe complications. As there is no commercially available vaccine, prevention is sought by reducing the habitat and the number of mosquitoes and limiting exposure to bites. The incubation period (time between exposure and onset of symptoms) ranges from 3 to 14 days, but most often it is 4 to 7 days. The characteristic symptoms of dengue are sudden-onset fever, headache (typically located behind the eyes), muscle and joint pains, and a rash. The alternative name for dengue, "breakbone fever" comes from the associated muscle and joint pains. Do’s and Don’t’s for Patients: If you or any other member is suffering from suspected dengue fever, it is important to carefully watch yourself or member for the next few days, since this disease can rapidly become very serious and lead to a medical emergency. The complications associated with Dengue Fever/Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever usually appear between the third and fifth day of illness. You should therefore watch the patient for two days even after fever disappears. Personal Measures: Use of mosquito repellent creams, liquids, coils, mats etc. Wearing of full sleeve shirts and full pants with socks during the transmission season. Use of bed nets for sleeping during day time to prevent mosquito bite What to Do: Give large amounts of fluids (water, soup, milk, juice) along with the normal diet. The patient should take complete rest. Immediately consult the doctor or report at the Health Centre if any of the following manifestations appear:  Red spots or points on the skin  bleeding from the nose or gums  frequent vomiting  vomiting with blood  black stools  sleepiness  constant crying;  abdominal pain  excessive thirst (dry mouth)  pale, cold or clammy skin  difficulty in breathing What Not to Do: Do not wait in case the above symptoms appear. Immediately consult a doctor. It is crucial to quickly get treatment in case of these complications.

Apply ice cold water packs on lower abdomen and fore head. If with this fever does not fall suck small pieces of ice. That will surely control fever. However do not aim at reducing fever below 100. Wait for it to come down naturally. Drink lots of fluids. Water, coconut water, sweet lime juice, Chhachh, any such thing which will not load your stomach.

Lybrate-user, fasting blood glucose level of 247 mg/100 ml is too high. That means after food it will go close to 350 to 400 mg/100 ml. This high level of glucose leads to excess of glucose being excreted from the urine, leading to a great degree of weight loss, tiredness, lethargy, no energy to do work and a host of other symptoms. It will also affect her eyes (retina), small blood vessels, nerves, kidney and heart. So rapid blood glucose control is the only option. She has to be put on appropriate medication and blood glucose levels should be brought down to fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c%<7. Otherwise situation can be dangerous. Please initiate proper treatment, plus diet control and some physical exercise. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, the passage of stone may bring along certain problems like injury to the urethra while passing or residual infection in the urinary tract. Since you report that most of your tests are normal, you may need to undergo a uroflowmetry examination to see if you are voiding well. Eventually some medications that reduce bladder irritability and edema can be initiated.

There are a various causes for stomach problems, treatment depends on the location, severity and type of pain. Laboratory tests such as the complete blood count (cbc), liver enzymes, pancreatic enzymes (amylase and lipase), urinalysis are frequently performed in the evaluation of abdominal pain. If you have h. Pylori infection for which I can prescribe a 14 day treatment plan which will eliminate it. Untreated infection causes ulcers in stomach and may finally lead to cancer. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

'vrushya' category of herbs will make available enough shukra in your body and pain will go if it is due to lack of shukra. To make penis strong pl use genuine classic tila made by vaidya himself or under some arrangements'vrushya' and'tila' if genuine, alone would solve it in a fine way.
