I am a 30, uncircumcised male and raised in a very conservative household where stuff like this wasn't talked about much. I recently discovered through online reading that the foreskin is supposed to eventually detach from the glans at around ages 10-15 but mine hasn't. I've masturbated all my life and I regularly clean under the foreskin in the shower. My erect penis does not retract. When flaccid, I can retract my foreskin to about a cm below the full glans so the head is revealed but I noticed that a part of it is attached to the glans. I did some research on it and discovered that this is unnatural. So, I came here for your suggestions on how I can go about getting the foreskin to detach naturally. Or do I have to get it operated? Thank.

Dear Lybrate user. Phimosis is a congenital narrowing of the opening of the foreskin so that it cannot be retracted. Phimosis is a very common problem. In most of the cases you can clear the problem yourself. Phimosis could cause moderate to severe pain while having vaginal intercourse. Apply oil on your foreskin and on the glans. Move the foreskin forward and back slowly without hurting you much. Because the oil is lubricant, it will be easier than without oil. Do this forward and back movement 20 times several times in a day. Repeat the same every day for around one month. You will get the elasticity and you will be able to retract the foreskin completely. In case if there is no result from the above massage, you can always go for a minor surgical procedure called circumcision. Take care.

Feeling light fever every time.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Feeling light fever every time.
Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as one of the body's natural defences against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperatures. Also, the body's defence mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or higher may be dangerous and demand immediate treatments like: -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used for fever in children/ adolescents or during a viral illness. -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress. Overdressing can cause temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) bathsmay help bring down a fever. -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -A fever can cause severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami,Amla juice etc. -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food -Wash hands frequently with soap and water especially after returning from public places or public transport. -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

If my child has a fever, can I give them paracetamol and ibuprofen at the same time?

If my child has a fever, can I give them paracetamol and ibuprofen at the same time?
No, paracetamol is enough for a small child, never to use two same drug group at once. Do tap-water sponging to lower the fever. Consult a doctor and start some antibiotics if any other issues are also there.

Mr. Lybrate-user, the levels mentioned are exceptionally high, need urgent reduction. It shows that the present treatment is not at all beneficial. Ina controlled diabetes fasting is closer to 100 mg and pp about 150 to 160 mg / 100 ml and hba1c% <7. The above levels can rapidly lead to serious long term complications related to diabetes. It is better if he is shifted to insulin injections. Otherwise it is difficult to control the sugar levels. He should also undergo an eye examination to see if there is diabetic retinopathy. (eyes to examined after dilating the pupil). If you are willing to shift to newer treatment,

Good diet for swimming and how I can increase inspiratory reserve volume (IRV. So I can swim for long time without breathing problem.

MBBS
General Physician, Kolkata
Hi lybrate-user its great to see such a term being used by the patient. You must be studying human biology really well:) coming to the point. Your breathing capacity will increase only through practice. The more you practise swimming, the more dedication you give, the more it will increase. It will not happen in a day. You can try yoga, and do some breathing exercises. For diet take lots of fruits and vegetables. I am not sure if you are a vegan. If not you can take chicken, fish, egg. But avoid red meat. And avoid fast food. There is no special diet for swimming. You just need to take a healthy balanced diet. And you being a good biology student, I am sure, you know what I mean by that.

Mr. Lybrate-user, this could be a simple coincidence, because usually no pain killer can cause such a serious problem, unless it is an anaphylactic (very severe acute allergy). Plus there is no mention of her other ailments. She may have had some other ailments or conditions related to heart which is not mentioned. So no explaination can be given.

My wife has been taken a rubella vaccine yesterday. That doctors tell us, do not be physical with each other before 28 days after vaccine taken. what if we get close to each other ?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
She should not get pregnant for that time. You should use oc pills like novelon for the whole month to achieve that. Pregnancy should be avoided for 1 months after vaccination, ideally, not until immunity is confirmed by a blood test. The rubella virus in this vaccine is alive, so it can harm the fetus if pregnancy occurred during this time.

Dear lybrate user, you may be suffering from a clinical condition called phimosis. The most conventional method to get rid of it is surgery. However, if you are unwilling to undergo surgery then you can try the following process at home. 1) buy any local anaesthetic gel (e. G. Lidocaine, lignocaine, xylocaine) from allopathic retail shop. 2) apply a little amount of that anaesthetic gel at the lower part of the prepuce of penis where the foreskin remains attached. 3) after application of the gel, retract the foreskin backwards as far as you can. Due to the anaesthetic property of the gel you will be able to retract the foreskin backwards to some extent more than you can do in normal condition. 4) release the foreskin when you feel pain 5) again repeat the same process. Do it continuously for at least 30 minutes in a day. Within a month you will feel that your foreskin has become loose.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.
