Thank you for the query. Dengue is basically a type of viral fever. Viral fever is characterised by high grade fever (usually more than 100 F), with headache, bodyache and generalised malaise. Usually a viral fever runs its course and subsides in a span of 5-6 days. Dengue fever (specially the complicated ones) may be associated with symptoms like bleeding (gum, nasal, bleeding spots under the skin), rashes, dizziness and abdominal pain. In very severe cases of dengue, reduced urine output and shock may be seen. In case youare suspecting dengue you may get the dengue profile done- NS1 Ag, IgM and IgG. You can also get some basic blood tests done like Haemoglobin, Total WBC count and Platelet. Drink sufficient fluid and paracetamol can be taken if temperature >101 F or in case of headache. Avoid aspirin group of drugs. Usually an antibiotic is not needed in a viral fever, unless there is a secondary bacterial infection. Please consult a physician for further advice on medications. Regards.

Hello, ringworm is caused by a fungus that grows on the skin. Once the fungus is established, it spreads out in rings. The centre of the ring may clear up, while a new ring of infection develops at the edge of the old ring. Fungi are microscopic organisms that can live off the dead tissues of your skin, hair, and nails, much like a mushroom can grow on the bark of a tree. Medication: take schwabe's tellurium 30/ thrice daily for 2 weeks. Management: good personal hygiene helps prevent the spread of ringworm. Teach your child to practice good hygiene and generally not to share combs, brushes, or hats. Children also shouldn't share towels, clothes, or sports equipment that haven't been properly cleaned. Avoid wearing any wet clothes, prefer cotton clothes, keep the area dry and clean. Never use others towels or clothes as well as don't share yours with others. Ringworm can also be transmitted from an infected dog or cat, so avoid animals who look mangy or have bald spots in their coats. If you have an animal that you think may have ringworm, take it to the vet for treatment.

The anus is full of bacteria. Even if both partners do not have a sexually-transmitted infection or disease, bacteria normally in theanus can potentially infect the giving partner. Practicing vaginalsex after anal sex can also lead to vaginal and urinary tract infections.

Pancreatitis

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Ambala

Chronic pancreatitis in ayurveda.

Introduction.

Pancreas also known as aganashaya/grahani is celebrated as the special seat of agni (fire) in the body. 
 Ayurvedic treatment chronic pancreatitis.

Pancreatitis in the initial phase is vata-pita (air & fire elements) aggravation in rasa dhatu (digestive fluids) situated in agnashaya (pancreas). In the chronic state there is dhatu kshaya (degenerative changes) in agnashaya.
Pancreatitis is one of the most painful conditions. In western thought it refers to a state of inflammation of the pancreas. The changes taking place in chronic pancreatitis are known to be irreversible. Enzymes become activated while still in pancreas, irritating the pancreatic cells causing inflammation and associated signs and symptoms.
Many causes of pancreatitis are known like alcoholism, gall stones, abdominal surgery, medications, smoking, high triglycerides, hypercalcemia, family history of pancreatitis, hyper parathyroidism and cystic fibrosis. Another common cause is idiopathic or simply unknown.

Our approach
We have treated a wide range of cases of chronic pancreatitis including:
•autoimmune condition in kids
•idiopathic
•alcoholic
•necrotising varieties.
Where pancreatitis has progressed to a chronic stage it is better managed with our medicines and dietary guidelines. The medicines vary from person to person depending on the age, body constitution and disease status. All these aspects are assessed by our doctors before deciding the line of treatment. The aim of the treatment is to balance air and fire elements. We don’t admit the patients as panchakarma procedures are not required in these cases.

Ayurveda pancreatitis
#amla-the wonder herb in pancreatitis
In acute cases our medicines could not give the desired results and such cases are better handled with allopathic medicine as the aim of the treatment is to tide over the crisis and give supportive treatment.

•duration of treatment varies from 2-6 months. The patient will first start experiencing a better digestion but the pain might still come. Slowly, over the next few weeks the intensity and frequency of pains will decrease. There is a chance of relapse of symptoms during the treatment if patient does not comply with dietary instructions.

#diet and #lifestyle
#food -
•use satvik diet consisting of vegetables, cereals, fruits and non refined items. More stress should be on cooked rather than uncooked.
•diluted buttermilk (#lassi) and indian gooseberry (amla) are the choicest of foods for chronic pancreatitis in ayurveda. Lassi can be made by mixing 10 ml of curd in 50 ml of water. Cumin powder and salt can be added to taste. Taking curd alone is not good.

The following are to be #avoided -

•foods having pungent and sour taste are to be avoided in general.
•fish, meat, cheese, curd, raw onion, garlic, lemon, hot spicy food
•refined wheat flour, refined sugar, deep fried food, fast food
•refrigerated foods like ice cream
•alcohol and smoking. Ayurvedic drink pancreatitis

#lifestyle
•vajrasana (thunderbolt pose) after food
•avoid daytime sleeping.
•dinner should be very light preferably soups.
