DO NOT GET SCARED OF H1N1medias are creating lot of panic in the society, and getting the sms stating that there is a prevention in the homeopathy and influnzinum is the medicine for preventtion of H1N1, it is not the fact, homeopathy treat's the person not the disease,and there is the concept of Genus Epidemicus IN HOMOEOPATHY,we have to take the current disease picture and have decide on the medicineplease do not get panic,What Is Swine Flu?Swine flu, also known as the H1N1 virus, made headlines in 2009 when it was declared a pandemic (Dandagi & Byahatti, 2011). Pandemics are contagious diseases affecting people throughout the world or on multiple continents at the same time. H1N1 has already been seen in 74 countries across the globe. (Dandagi & Byahatti, 2011).H1N1 is highly contagious, allowing it to spread quickly from person to person. A simple sneeze may cause thousands of germs to spread through the air. The virus can linger on tables and surface areas like door knobs, waiting to be picked up.The swine flu causes many symptoms similar to regular influenza. Diagnosis can be made by testing a swab of mucus from the nose or throatRisk Factors for Swine FluSwine flu is unusual because it does not target the same age group as the rhino virus (typical flu). The disease focuses on young adults. This is unusual because most flu viruses attack those who are elderly or very young. Some form of immunity to swine flu may exist in the elderly due to previous flu exposures.Other risk factors for swine flu include:• compromised immune system (from a disease such as AIDS)• pregnancy• past history of infectionsCause of Swine FluThe swine flu is caused by a strain of influenza virus that usually only infects pigs. Unlike typhus, which can be transmitted by lice or ticks, the main transmission is not from pigs to people, but rather from person to person.Swine flu is very contagious. The disease is spread through saliva and mucus particles. People may spread them by:• sneezing• coughing• touching a germ-covered surface and then touching their eyes or nosePart 4 of 8: SymptomsSymptoms of Swine FluThe symptoms of swine flu are very much like those of regular influenza. They include:• chills• fever• coughing• sore throatPart 5 of 8: DiagnosisDiagnosing Swine FluA diagnosis is made by sampling fluid from those with swine flu. To take a sample, a doctor or nurse may take a swab of the nose or throat.The swab will be analyzed using various genetic and laboratory techniques to identify the specific type of virus.Treating Swine FluAs of 2009, the CDC has recommended healthcare workers in contact with swine flu or suspected swine flu patients should take precautions. Precautions against infection include:• wearing gloves and/or gowns• using eye protection• wearing face masksIn known cases of swine flu, patients should be isolated to prevent the spread of H1N1. Outlook for Swine FluSevere cases of swine flu can be fatal. Most fatal cases are in those with underlying conditions, such as HIV/AIDS. The majority of people with swine flu recover and can anticipate a normal life expectancy.Preventing Swine FluEasy ways to prevent swine flu (in addition to being vaccinated) include:• washing hands frequently with soap or hand sanitizer• not touching your nose, mouth, or eyes because the virus can survive on telephones, tabletops, etc.• staying home from work or school if you are ill to keep others healthy• Avoiding large gatherings when swine flu is in season. Flu season shifts a little bit from year to year, but in the United States it generally peaks in January, although it often starts in October and runs until as late as May. It is possible to get the flu year-round.

7 Benefits Of Regular STD Check Up

7 Benefits Of Regular STD Check Up

STIs or sexually transmitted diseases are infections whose transmission to a healthy person from an infected person happens through sexual contact. However, with modern medicine and diagnostic techniques, there are ways to prevent, detect and cure them effectively and quickly.

Not all diseases are curable though and it is best to follow preventive measures. Also, for sexually active adults it is an absolute necessity to get tested regularly for their health as well as the well-being of their partners.

Why do people tend to avoid getting tested for STIs or sexually transmitted infections?
One of the major factors that avert people from regular tests is the social stigma attached with sexually transmitted diseases. It is absolutely imperative for sexually active adults to go for regular checkups so that if they have any infections or diseases, it can be diagnosed quickly and remedial measure can be taken appropriately.

The benefits of regular checkups
Some of the benefits of regular checkups are mentioned here:-

  • Regular checkups can detect problems at a stage when the conditions may not have progressed too much and this will make it easily treatable.
  • With HIV positive patients, the quicker the testing gets done the quicker the treatment can be started. Thus, can prevent the onset of AIDS.
  • Regular checkups can control the progression of the diseases such as Chlamydia, which if left untreated can cause permanent infertility.
  • Getting a prospective partner tested is also a good idea as this can enable one to protect themselves from STIs.
  • Symptoms for certain STIs can be similar to many other non-sexual or non-venereal diseases. Thus getting tests done is the only way to get to know if there is an STI or if it is some other nonsexual disease.
  • HPV or Human Papilloma Virus can be detected easily with regular STI checkups and thus appropriate treatment can be started. If HPV isn't detected early, it can manifest much later in the form of cancer, which makes it more important to get yourself checked early on.

Can we cure diabetes permanently, present we do only supplication is there any way. Suggest medication of diabetes.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetes at present can only be controlled by medications and exercise plus diet control there is no cure at least for now. May be for next few decades. Medication for a diabetes patient depends on blood sugar levels, type of dm, severity and weight. It has to be individualised. No common treatment can be suggested.

Hello doc, I'm 22 years old and I masturbate twice a day, I cannot sleep at night without masturbating, I started masturbating at the age of 6, nobody guided me about masturbation, so I found myself a way to masturbate, which is to rub my penis against the bed when it is not erected and suffocate it till it ejaculates, my sperm gets collected in my foreskin. (Which means I don't need an erection to shoot my sperm) I move my body up and down ,making my penis rub hardly against the bed or on the tiles or somewhere hard surface, and I am still following this method! Because I'm not being able to masturbate using my hands, even my girlfriend cannot make me ejaculate using her hands, but I can shoot my sperms while having sex, and also I had a penis sized almost 7 inches also strong and thick but now it has comparatively become small and the thickness of my penis is reducing. Please help, I used to have sex on a daily basis also but now it depends on my erection, and these days I'm avoiding sex because I know to masturbate without an erection also, and it's spoiling my sex life .(p.s- I smoke and drink also )I used to boast about my size and strength but now I don't know what's happening, if now itself I start facing this problem by the time of marriage will my penis even erect?

Excessive of anything is bad same applies with masterbation. 2 things happen when one masterbate excessively 1. Premature ejaculation you can correlate when you started mastrrbation what was time and check current timing. You will find time to ejaculate might hv reduced significantly. Some people even ejaculate while rubbing in bed 2. Second problem is weak erection. Over a period you will feel lesser or weaker erections. One may feel shrinking penis due to this. Consult to cure side effects of excessive masterbation. Results within 10 days once you start treatment.

If the pain is there there is more chances of that you may be suffering from a anal fissure and not the piles. I would advise you the following: please read carefully, understand each point and follow strictly. It is you who have to take a proper care and treatment: You can try the following method of treatment and you may NOT need surgery. High fiber diet. Avoid all the foods and beverages and stress-like conditions which gives constipation or any problem related to gastrointestinal system. Laxative for softening the stool- never allow the dose too much to cause liquid stools. You can try Liquid Cremaffin plus 2 teaspoonfull to be taken at bedtime (night only). Sitz bath- sitting in a tub with warm water. This is the most and very important- to be done just before passing a stool and after passing a stool. Clean the area very clear of the fecal soiling that remains after cleaning; use cotton soaked in the same water to clean. You can apply liquid povidone iodine locally. Apply nothing else. 5 day course of an antibiotic and Metronidazole (You need a prescription of a local Doctor) as I can not give a prescription on internet. Also take probiotics and multivitamins. Avoid stress and mental tensions at any cost; this is a very important factor. Continue this for 3 weeks and most probably you may not need surgery. If the results are positive you have to continue doing all this and take proper care. Per-rectal and proctoscopy examination by a General Surgeon to get the exact cause/causes is also very important step. Get this done and give me feedback of the diagnosis told and the effects of the treatment I have suggested. I hope this answer helps you.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, first of all, pls calm down, this doesnot appear to be a serious problem. A lot of people experience numbness, redness and slight swelling on hands and arms while walking. This is because, while walking, most of the blood flow is diverted to legs. What you can do is that while walking, open and close your fists repeatedly. This will increase your blood flow. You may keep smileys balls in hand and squeeze them repeatedly. If this doesnot work, then you may get an ecg done, although, I doubt you will need it. So relax and keep walking. Thanks!

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. May be viral pharyngitis. If so, there is no specific treatment for viral pharyngitis. You can relieve symptoms by gargling with warm salt water several times a day (use ½ teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water). Taking anti-inflammatory drugs or medications, such as acetaminophen, can control symptoms.

Know More About Bronchial Asthma

MD, MBBS
Pulmonologist, Delhi

Hello friends, I am Nikhil Modi. I am a consultant specialist respiratory medicines, working in Apollo Hospital, Delhi. Today I will be sharing some words about Bronchial Asthma.

As we all know that due to the rising pollution, a rise in smoking habits, breathing problems are on a rise. One of the major breathing problem which is coming across all age groups, especially with children running into early bronchial asthma. It is a type of a chronic lung disease which is allergic in nature and can be caused due to exposure to dust, smoke, pollens and air pollution. Due to rise in this pollution, the number of cases of asthma is on rise.

How do we identify this condition?

Common symptoms we see in patients are;

  • A cough, which may be variable during the day, it may be more in the early morning or at night or it can be hacking chronic in nature which may be dry or sometimes thick scutum associated with it.
  • Breathing difficulty. Patients feel breathless even while sitting. And it increases while they do daily activities. The daily routine activities like washing, running, going to the office is hampered due to breathlessness.
  • Also, there is some wheezing or whistling sound which is observed by the patients.

Sometimes these symptoms are more in the night time or in the early morning. And patients are too uncomfortable even while sleeping with it. So, if any of these symptoms are there, especially when you note these symptoms during the change of season. More in the winters or while exposure to dust, pollution, if these symptoms aggravate then you may be suffering from bronchitis asthma.

Treatment of this is simple. Now a lot of effective treatments are coming up which help in treating this. But one thing you need to know is that this disease is controllable and not easily curable. So, the treatment may be a long term. With time, as your symptoms are less, the medicines can be reduced to a minimum, but we do not allow these symptoms to crop up again and again by taking infrequent medicines as this can permanently damage your lungs. This damage may be irreversible and this damage may not be curable again. For these newer drugs like inhalers have come up with anti-allergic medicines. But these should be prescribed after full examination by a specialised physician, especially the chest physician so that the amount and doses of the drug can be individualised. As different patients need different types of drugs for the cure.

Once the treatment is started, there is regime to step up or step down the regime with which we can easily control the symptoms and patient can lead a very healthy life.

Further, sometimes, it is important to identify the allergens and exposure to them are prevented can reduce the symptoms.

With this, I thank you all and if you have any query, you are free to contact me through Lybrate platform.
