Hello lybrate user, - better to adopt simple neck exercise to avoid stiffening and relax muscles. - you can also apply medicated oil like ksheerabala taila which strengthen your neck muscles and bones also relax the muscles. - also better to change the position of neck during work - by adopting preventive measures further progress can be avoided. Thank you.

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.

You can go for following remedy it will help you mix triphala powder in water. Keep it away for half an hour. Add a table spoon of pure honey. Have this in early morning daily. Raw onion dish eaten daily also can fix the matter. Have sweet soup made up of black gram. Combine black gram, rice, wheat and long pepper in equal quantities. Grind them to form powder. Fry the mixture in pure clarified butter so cook it with milk. Eat when adding sugar to that. Causes: consistent with ayurvedic concepts, nightfall is because of vata irritation. Quickness is the primary nature of vata. Its affectability is expanded by over considering sex. So for the curing of nightfall vata ought to be cured and adjusted. Overindulgence in sexual considering, constipation, unhealthy diet, low water intake are likewise a percentage of the fundamental driver of the nightfall. This is very helpful.

Masturbation is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity. In general, the medical community considers masturbation to be a natural and harmless expression of sexuality for both men and women. It does not cause any physical injury or harm to the body, and can be performed in moderation throughout a person's lifetime as a part of normal sexual behavior. It will not affect you or your ability to have children in the future. If you wish to reduce the frequency of masturbation: It originates from brain, due to thinking about sex. Hence: ·     Do not watch adult material. ·     Concentrate more on your studies or work. ·     Exercise regularly.

I am 28 years male. I have suffering from psoriasis last 10 years. Psoriasis In my head. It is red patches and silver colour scalp.

M.D.(Hom.), B.H.M.S.
Homeopath, Kottayam
I am 28 years male. I have suffering from psoriasis last 10 years. Psoriasis In my head. It is red patches and silver...
This is pre-eminently an affection of the male sex; in the case of females it is never attended with sexual disorders. It attacks individuals between the seventh and fiftieth year, and occurs most frequently in the cold season. It cannot be traced to constitutional derangements, since persons who are afflicted with this disease, otherwise enjoy the most perfect health. With the appearance of some constitutional disease, the psoriasis disappears at once, but returns again as soon as the disease is removed. Psoriasis begins in this wise: at various, more or less numerous, scattered spots, the detached epidermis forms a small, white rising-psoriasis punctata. These spots gradually spread from every point of the periphery until they reach the size of drops-psoriasis guttata; on removing the scales, we find the skin underneath slightly red and bleeding. In proportion as the circumference continues to expand, the original spot becomes cleansed of its scales, and a ring forms surrounding a healthy-looking skin-psoriasis annularis; in the further progress of the exanthem, this ring opens, losing its roundness-psoriasis gyrata-and finally disappearing altogether. All these stages, or most of them, coexist side by side in almost every case of this disease. Psoriasis is not attended with itching, or at most only at the commencement, but in no case if it has become an inveterate disease. It may remain stationary, though breaking out in new places, or it may intermit in its manifestations for months and even years. Treatment in selecting our remedies, we must not overlook the fact that psoriasis is not an itching eruption. This seems to have been ignored by many practitioners; hartmann's delineation of the disease is especially untrue to nature. The selection of remedies is rendered particularly difficult by the circumstance that the patient enjoys perfect health, and that on this account we are without any co-determining symptoms. It is wrong and unscientific to try to get symptoms out of a patient by persistent questioning and to hunt them up even among his ancestors in order to realize our dreams about reliable remedies. For this reason we content ourselves with giving merely the names of the remedies that have already been employed in this disease with some advantage, or that may seem adapted to further to trials. We arrange the series in accordance with the practical value of each drug: sulphur, phosphorus, sepia, petroleum, calcarea carbonica, acidum nitricum and phosphoricum, arsenicum and tellurium. Among external remedies the only application which is never hurtful and usually efficient, is the vapor-bath accompanied by frictions with castile soap, or, if the affection has already existed for a long time, with brown soap. Cold bathing is of decided use, although its effect may not be perceived immediately.

Mai 21 saal ki hu. Maine apne boyfriend ke sath 10 baar sex kia hai. Toh ab sex na karu toh kya 1-2 saal tak pahle jaisa ho sakta hai tab sex karne par firr se blood aaega.

MBBS
General Physician, Noida
The hymen is a membrane which tears in initial sex ,which shows as blood in first or initial few times sex, and if you give time gap it will not show any bleeding in subsequent sex; But bleeding not showing up on sex is not an indication that you are not virgin; Hymen tear can happen due to many other reasons also ;so do not worry on this matter

I am suffering from hepatitis-b. How will I recover from this.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Hepatitis b virus infection may be either acute (self-limiting) or chronic (long-standing). Persons with self-limiting infection clear the infection spontaneously within weeks to months. Children are less likely than adults to clear the infection. More than 95% of people who become infected as adults or older children will stage a full recovery and develop protective immunity to the virus. However, this drops to 30% for younger children, and only 5% of newborns that acquire the infection from their mother at birth will clear the infection. This population has a 40% lifetime risk of death from cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma. Of those infected between the age of one to six, 70% will clear the infection. Hepatitis d (hdv) can occur only with a concomitant hepatitis b infection, because hdv uses the hbv surface antigen to form a capsid. Co-infection with hepatitis d increases the risk of liver cirrhosis and liver cancer. Polyarteritis nodosa is more common in people with hepatitis b infection. Besides, some may develop cirrhosis and some may have reactivation. I don't know how and when you have acquired this disease? so gave you a generalised impression. Hope you shall find answer of your question. Better talk to your doctor who is treating you.
