People develop immunity towards rash causing agents. True or false? take this quiz to know more.
A. What could ignored rashes lead to?
- Hay fever
- Contact dermatitis
- All the above
Answer - d: all of the above
A rash could mean more than just what it seems to be. People with asthma may have a rash at the beginning of weather change, which indicates the asthma is on its way. It could also be the first reaction to food allergy or contact dermatitis. Anything that the body’s immune system does not react favourably to, the skin is one of the first respondents to it. Never ignore a rash as just a minor discoloration of the skin; it could be trying to say a lot more.
B. Which of the followings is a good reason for a skin rash to be seen by a dermatologist?
- It appears in the same area repeatedly
- Bleeding or pus discharge from a rash
- Changes in colour to more reddish or blackish hue
- All of the above
Answer - d: all of the above
While rashes per se are a very common problem, they definitely need a little more attention (probably medical) when they appear repeatedly or look different than normal. They also could be indicative of deeper problems, sometimes as serious as cancer. Do not ignore if rashes are appearing repeatedly in the same area or change in colour or appearance.
C. A rash will disappear on its own in a matter of days
Answer - b: false
An allergic rash may disappear once the body’s reaction to the allergy-causing substance subsides. This, however, does not ensure that all rashes will behave in the same way. If the rash is a manifestation of a more severe underlying problem, it could disappear but recur again in a more severe or altered form elsewhere. It could be reddish, blackish, more severe in nature, larger, etc. Keep an eye for repeat rashes or altered forms of a rash; they could meet more than just a contact dermatitis.
D. People develop immunity towards rash causing agents
Answer - a: true
An allergic rash definitely triggers a response from the immune system. This is especially true if the rash developed after an insect sting or after eating some food substance (eggs, chocolates, nuts, etc.) however, physical irritation by a blanket or cloth can continue to produce and/or aggravate the rash. Not just for cosmetic reasons, also look at rash from an overall health point of view.
E. Rashes are always an allergic manifestation
Answer - b: false
One of the most common forms of allergies is rashes, but the reverse is not always true. Rashes could mean anything from a simple allergy to a developing carcinoma. So, do not always ignore rashes to be some allergic reaction to something in the house or some new soap that you switched to. Keep an eye, and if it does not go away, get it checked to rule out any underlying issues. To check if the new soap actually caused an allergy, try going without it for a day or two and check if the rash disappears.
Ever wondered how good it would be if a tooth lost can be placed back in place? That is just what the dental implant does. Unlike the dentures, which replace only the crown portion of the tooth, the implant replaces the crown and the root portion of the tooth.
What’s more the chances of decay are less and there is no fear of mobility. The dental implant replaces the natural tooth to the maximum extent possible, both in terms of chewing efficiency and stability of the tooth. It can take almost as much pressure as the natural tooth, with hardly any restrictions on diet.
When properly fabricated, the dental implant can last a lifetime. However, this longevity depends on two sets of factors. The first is the overall oral health of the patient and the second is the post-implant care.
Oral health: Before deciding that a person is to go for an implant, the following are considered:
The person should have very good jaw bone support: The titanium post that will be used as the root portion is placed into the gum ridge and unless the jaw bone is extremely healthy, it will not be able to support this. Also, the post will be in left in place to get integrated into the bone for about 4 to 6 months. During this phase, the oral health should be maintained extremely well.
Placement: The implant should be done by someone qualified to do an implant, not just by any dentist. Good fabrication of the implant is very essential for its longevity.
Good oral hygiene measures: This is a prerequisite for choosing, if a person is a candidate for a dental implant. If the oral hygiene habits are doubtful, then it would not be worth investing the time, effort, and money on an implant.
Post-implant insertion care: Once the post is absorbed into the bone and the crown has been placed, meticulous care should be taken to ensure there is no plaque formation in and around the implant. The gums have to be maintained healthy through regular brushing, flossing, interdental brushing and frequent mouth rinses. This will ensure the gums are healthy and can support the implant for years to come. Regular visits to the dentist every 6 months and scaling in the dental office are also mandatory when you have an implant.
The overall health of the person also ensures success of implants. Chronic uncontrolled conditions like heart disease, stress, diabetes, and smoking adversely affect the oral health and therefore the success of an implant. These are also associated with a greater risk of gum and periodontal disease. Managing these optimally also adds to longevity of dental implants. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dentist.
Melanoma is one of the most dangerous forms of skin cancer which develops in the skin cells that produce melanin ( the pigment that gives your skin its color). This form of skin cancer is mostly caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiations or it may be congenital in nature.
The cancer is easily detected by the naked eye and in 99% cases, the disease can be efficiently treated if detected during its early stages. Women below the 40 year age benchmark have a higher risk of cancer.
Viagra is a health supplement which is consumed in the oral form to minimize all the signs and symptoms of an erectile dysfunction. Viagra is the generic name for Sildenafil, which is used by men.
What does research say?
A medical study has shown that men who frequently use erection-enhancing drugs are 84% more likely to develop melanoma within a period of 10 years. This does not mean that you are bound to get this cancer if you are frequently using an erection enhancing drugs, but it might increase your probability of getting Melanoma.
Viagra when combined with some other medicine often leads to adverse effects which might lead to cancer as well. It is always desirable that you consult your doctor before taking a Viagra in general. Some of the dangerous factors are:
- Taking Viagra with nitrate drugs such as nitroglycerin, isosorbide mononitrate, and such others.
- If you are experiencing an unreasonably high or low blood pressure
- If you have any kind of a liver disease
- If you are suffering from a kidney disease that requires dialysis (blood purification process)
While taking Viagra, you should always consult a doctor near you. Additionally, you should also follow certain precautionary measures like:
- You should avoid buying Viagra online, as there is a high probability that it is fake
- You should try going for natural alternatives to Viagra. Studies have shown that the medicines with nitric oxide can help you in having a proper and enhanced erection. Additionally, medicines containing L-arginine are also very popular as they help in generating nitric oxide.
