I am a 58 year old male with no health problem and 62 kg of body weight. I have a painless swelling in the area of about one squire inch on the middle of my forehead for the last ten years. It does not look good on my face. I want to know how I can get rid of this unwanted swelling. Please advise me.
Hi Doctor, I am 28 years old, around 4 months back I was suffering from chronic migraine and was put on Sibelium 10 mg tablets (1 every night) and Ciplar LA 40 mg Tablet (1 every morning). As suggested by the doctor I had to take the medicines for 3 months straight to completely eradicate the migraine issue. I completed the medication course last month and now feel better. But all of a sudden I’ve realized that I have completely lost my sexual desire, I am not having any desire for sex, not having any orgasm and suffering from erectile dysfunction however hard I try. I tried to masturbate once with marginal erection and noticed that my sperm density was very low and it was plain liquid. I read online that Ciplar has side effects which includes Decreased sexual function, Decreased libido. My question how long will it take for the side effects to go away and I get back to normalcy with regards to my sexual function. Is there anything to worry and should I see a doctor, if Yes which specialist would be helpful.
Has your child been coughing frequently? Is the cough chronic in nature, making your child breathe rapidly and does he/she complain about a tightened chest? These symptoms signify that your child is having asthma. Asthma is a medical condition characterized by paroxysmal wheezing respiration dyspnoea. It is common in children and an affected child experiences difficulty in breathing, and a whizzing sound is produced, especially during expiration. Asthma may lead to severe health complications and needs immediate diagnosis and treatment.
Diagnosis: The diagnosis of asthma is based on the symptoms, medical history and a physical examination of the child.
The different modes of asthma diagnosis are as follows:
- Medical history and symptoms: You must tell the doctor about any history of breathing trouble with your child or whether there are chances of other inherited health conditions. You must explain your child's symptoms properly, which may include coughing, wheezing, chest pain or tightness and others if observed.
- Physical examination: A physical exam will be carried out in your child where the doctor will listen to his heart and lungs, and look for eye or nose allergies.
- Medical tests: A chest X-ray of the child has to be carried out, along with a simple lung function test known as spirometry. This test measures the amount of air present in the lungs and determines how fast it can be exhaled. Spirometry enables a doctor to determine the severity of the asthma. Some other tests are also carried out for the identification of asthma triggers. They include allergy skin testing, blood tests and X-rays to know if sinus infections are affecting the asthma. An asthma test determines the amount of nitric oxide in your child's breath.
Treatment: Based on your child's severity of asthma symptoms and his medical history, the doctor will provide you with an action plan to treat the same. This action plan explains all the medications your child requires, the dosage and schedule of the medicines. The plan also includes points on what to do when the asthma worsens and when an emergency treatment is required. Anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed to children who require bronchodilator medication. All asthma medicines used by adults can be used in case of children but in lower dosages.
You should give the asthma medications to your child using a home nebulizer or a breathing machine. A nebulizer delivers asthma drugs by transforming them from liquid to a mist. The child gets the drug by breathing it via a face mask.
In order to control and manage asthma in children, they must avoid the triggers and should keep away from any source of smoke. A doctor must be consulted to know about the best diagnosis and treatment methods.
