I am 31 years old unmarried woman. I am having post nasal drip problem since January 2016. I have taken medicines but it has not been cured yet. I had also taken antibiotics for ten days, prescribed by the doctor but it also did not work. When this problem started in the January, I had also had the throat infection but I had not had fever and any other symptoms and I had been cured within 3 days by the medicine which prescribed by the doctor. I am not having running nose but it is running from inside and that is why I am also having throat congestion. The cough is white and thin. I do not have allergy from dust. I do not have sneeze problem. What should I do?
Anaemia develops when you don’t have enough robust, healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body. The blood cells may lack enough haemoglobin. Anaemia affects one in 10 teen girls and women. It also develops in men and children and is linked to some illnesses.
What Are the Symptoms of Anaemia?
The symptoms of anaemia vary according to the type of anaemia, the underlying cause, the severity.
Symptoms common to many types of anaemia include the following:
• Easy fatigue and loss of energy
• Unusually rapid heartbeat, particularly with exercise
• Shortness of breath and headache, particularly with exercise
• Difficulty concentrating
• Pale skin
• Leg cramps
• Soreness of the mouth with cracks at the corners
• A tingling, "pins and needles" sensation in the hands or feet.
• Lost sense of touch
• A wobbly gait and difficulty walking
• Clumsiness and stiffness of the arms and legs
Dietary Changes needed
Low levels of vitamins or iron in the body can cause some types of anaemia. These low levels might be the result of a poor diet or certain diseases or conditions. Common vitamin supplements are vitamin B12 and folic acid (folate). Vitamin C sometimes is given to help the body absorb iron.
Your body needs iron to make haemoglobin.
Good sources of iron include:
• Red meats
• Spinach and other dark green leafy vegetables
• Peas; lentils; white, red, and baked beans; soy beans; and chickpeas
• Dried fruits, such as prunes, raisins, apricots , pistachio, dates, almonds, figs.
• Prune juice
• Iron-fortified cereals and breads
• Peanut butter
Low levels of vitamin B12 can lead to pernicious anaemia. This type of anaemia often is treated with vitamin B12 supplements.
Good food sources of vitamin B12 include:
• Breakfast cereals with added vitamin B12
• Meats such as beef, liver, poultry, and fish
• Eggs and dairy products (such as milk, yoghurt, and cheese)
• Foods fortified with vitamin B12, such as soy-based beverages.
Vitamin C helps the body absorb iron.
Good sources of vitamin C include:
• Citrus fruits rich like oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, and similar fruits.
• Other fruits rich in vitamin C include kiwi fruit, strawberries, and cantaloupes.
• Fresh and frozen fruits, vegetables, and juices usually have more vitamin C than canned ones.
• Vegetables rich in vitamin C include broccoli, peppers, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, cabbage, potatoes, and leafy green vegetables like turnip greens and spinach.
I am 17 year old male, my hand palms sweat very badly. Can you tell me what is the reason behind. Is there any way to cure this.
How to deal with #insect inside ear
If suddenly one feels a #buzzingsound or an itchy feel in the ear& to horror, one feels a live insect in ear, which can be extremely annoying and is like a nightmare. Insects often get stuck when they enter our ears as they cannot fly or crawl out.
First thing is to confirm if insect is there or not; for which pull pinna upward and backwards in adult and straight down in children below 3 yrs, throw light with torch, if a #mosquito it might come out with light. If other insect use gravity down position so it might crawl out.
#staycool, calm and no panic please being too active may lodge the bug further in your ear or cause it to crawl further back, or cause #damage to the sensitive inner ear or eardrum. Keep objects (like fingers) away from your ears to promote early exit of insect. Sometimes there is no insect or might have come out and just sensation or feeling is persisting. Abnormal sensation can be sometimes due to eustachian dysfunction.
If you are not able to understand&if the foreign object is an insect, tilt the person's head so that the ear with the offending insect is upward. Try to float the insect out by pouring #mineral,#oiloliveoil or baby oil into the ear. The oil should be warm but not hot. As you pour the oil, you can ease the entry of the oil by straightening the ear canal. Pull the earlobe gently backward and upward for an adult, backward and downward for a child. The insect should suffocate and float out in the oil bath, it will #kill the insect by #drowning it. Don't use oil to remove any object other than an insect. Don't use this method for a child if ear tubes are in place or if you think the eardrum may be perforated. The emergency is over once the insect is dead. See your#entdoctor as soon as possible.
One may also squeeze droplets of #alcohol in ear canal, even though painful. The alcohol will evaporate but the smell will pressure the insect to come out.
One may also,#flush the ear with water – using a bulb or syringe (without the needle) if one is available to swish it out. Let the water slowly overflow and watch for the insect to be flushed out. Do not irrigate ear if you think your ear drum has been ruptured or has old hole in drum or has a tube or grommet.
But do not try to remove an insect with cotton swab, tweezers or hair clip or#forceps or any other tool, as it will make the situation worse and can lodge the insect deeper into the ear canal, which can possibly damage the eardrum, middle ear leading to hearing loss and may lead to chronic disease and necessity of #tympanoplasty operation in future. We sometimes get such cases of damage hence please ask only a ent specialist to remove and no one else must attempt removal even though tempting.
Best thing is always visit ent doc & get insect removed fully or if parts are left with. He will also clean debris or infection. Believe me it will be cost effective and safe.
Lastly please ensure less entry of insects in house or office, avoid lying on ground, use insecticides regularly for insect control etc
