Taxim O is already an antibiotic. Injections if required will be decided by treating doctor and cannot be given off the shelf. Moreover it should be safe for use during pregnancy. She should consume extra fluids and electrolytes and high calorie diet. If fever does not subside within 2-3 days you must see the doctor.

Plz tell whether masturbation delays period. Masturbation once in two weeks delays periods. please reply.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
Plz tell whether masturbation delays period. Masturbation once in two weeks delays periods. please reply.
Masturbation doesnot influence menstrual periods. So you can continue to do it. From the information you have given, at 5.6 feet height your weight is 85 kg, this is obesity. And in obese persons menstrual irregularity is common. Visit a near by gynecologist to get examined and evaluated for irregular menses. Most probably gynec will sugegst some tests like blood tests for thyroid disorders and hormone analysis and a sonography to evaluate your pelvic organs. Weight loss has been shown to normalise the internal hormonal balance and menses also regularise. So do go to gym and start diet and exercise together to achieve a good weight for your height. Take help of a dietician to plan your diet.

If you have spotting only, there can be chance of pregnancy. Have intercourse during ovulation days will increase chances of conceiving. But still it may take 4-5 moths, so need not to worry. it is absolutely fine, and take care of your diet and do regular exercise, it will help.

Cut down fried food, junk food including pepsi and juices. Have dal, roti/ whole meal bread; skimmed milk; low fat youghurt, chicken and fish, green vegetables. Also avoid high calorie fruits like bananas. If you are a rice eater try to limit it to once a day and eat small portions. Always eat a little that feeling full to help reduce weight. Combine this with exercise like skipping, jogging, swimming.

hi lybrate user, at the age of 48yrs women's egg reserve is very low as she is in menopause. if you want to go for IVF with your own eggs chances will be less than 5%.This further also depends upon how is your endometrium. Their is additional risk of downs syndrome in baby. With diet rich in antioxidants like avocado, DHEA, olive oil will improve quality of the eggs whatever you have.

Homeopath,
Hi , better to take homoeopathy medicines to reduce menopausal symptoms like hot flushes, depressed feeling, hormonal changes etc. Avoid fatty and sugary foods; eat rich iron foods, drink plenty of water, maintain body weight along with medicines. You may consult a homeopath.

Dear Doctor, Every month i get my periods in time frame of 25 to 30 days and this time and this month I have not got my periods and I am living single from past 9 years without any physical interaction so there is no chances of me to get pregnant ans so please let me know what would be reason for such and what steps to follow to get regular periods on time.

MBBS, MD
Gynaecologist,
As you said the possibility of pregnancy is not there at all, and all your previous periods occurring at regular intervals, the most common causes of your not getting menses at the regular time this month may be any one of the following - weight gain, strenuous exercise, no physical activity, change of place, stress or anxiety, hormonal imbalance due to thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. There are of course many other causes of missed periods. Delayed period once in a while is not a matter of concern. You may check on yourself if some of the above-mentioned causes may be operating or not, and then try to alleviate these. For knowing hormonal imbalance, of course, you will have to get some tests done like thyroid tests and ultrasound for which doctor's consultation will be necessary.

Physiotherapy Treatment for Sleep Paralysis

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy), BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
Physiotherapy Treatment for Sleep Paralysis

Physiotherapy and sleep paralysis have a deep connection when you have to treat sleep paralyses the intelligent way. To discover the benefits of physiotherapy in healing sleep paralysis, let's get a clear understanding of sleep paralyses first and then the role of physiotherapy. 

What is sleep paralysis and its common causes?
Sleep paralysis is a sleeping disorder, its symptoms are such  that you suddenly feel in the middle of the night or in mid sleep that you can't move, react, talk, etc. and feel that your body has frozen. This immobility is accompanied with frightful or eerie visions or sounds, which are not the reality and you still hallucinate. 
This is often caused because of the following reasons, which are considered common causes of sleep paralysis:

  • A medical condition called narcolepsy
  • No fixed time of sleeping and waking, thus creating imbalance in sleep patterns
  • Inadequate sleep through the 24 hours
  • Excessive stress and workload
  • Alcohol consumption or drug abuse
  • A bad diet like heavy meals at night before bedtime
  • Extreme caffeine consumption

If any of these things are common, you may get a sleep paralysis.

Physiotherapy in healing sleep paralysis:
If it is a one night episode, you will eventually forget this. However, in case you are a victim every night or frequently, you may need some good remedies. Medications may not suit all, but physiotherapy is a safe mode of treatment, which suits all and people of all ages. That is why try physiotherapy for sleep paralysis at home or by going to a nearest physiotherapy center or expert.

How physiotherapy helps
Physiotherapy has some unique benefits like:

  1. It brings a balance in blood circulation through the body, which helps in lowering the blood pressure, normalize mood, reduce stress, and makes the blood flow to the body organs and brain better, thus inducing a good night's sleep.
  2. The exercise induced on to the body through physiotherapy has a dual effect. It makes the muscles workout, and induces the massage effect too. This makes the muscles more mobile, and brings warmth on the tissues. That is why exercising before bedtime can help you get a very peaceful sleep without fearful dreams and interferences of sleep paralysis attacks.
  3. You get a better mood due to increased blood circulation and the feeling of well-being due to the agile and worked out muscles. This good mood and satisfaction after a nice physiotherapy session sometime before you sleep lets the serotonin or happiness and satisfaction hormone build up in the body and brain. This makes you sleep without stress and in a nice mood thus resisting sleep paralysis.

Dermatologists' top tips for relieving dry skin

MD - Skin,VD & Lepxsy
Dermatologist, Hyderabad
Dermatologists' top tips for relieving dry skin
Simple changes can soothe dry skin

Following the same skin care routine year round may not work so well when the humidity drops. Without a change in your skin care, dry air can make fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. Dry skin can itch, flake, crack, and even bleed.

To help heal dry skin and prevent its return, dermatologists recommend the following.

1. Prevent baths and showers from making dry skin worse. When your skin is dry, be sure to:

Close the bathroom door
Limit your time in the shower or bath to 5 or 10 minutes
Use warm rather than hot water
Wash with a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser
Apply enough cleanser to remove dirt and oil, but avoid using so much that you see a thick lather
Blot your skin gently dry with a towel
Slather on the moisturizer immediately after drying your skin

2. Apply moisturizer immediately after washing. Ointments, creams, and lotions (moisturizers) work by trapping existing moisture in your skin. To trap this much-needed moisture, you need to apply a moisturizer within few minutes of:

Drying off after a shower or bath
Washing your face or hands

3. Use an ointment or cream rather than a lotion. Ointments and creams are more effective and less irritating than lotions. Look for a cream or ointment that contains an oil such as olive oil or jojoba oil. Shea butter also works well. Other ingredients that help to soothe dry skin include lactic acid, urea, hyaluronic acid, dimethicone, glycerin, lanolin, mineral oil, and petrolatum.

Tip: Carry a non-greasy hand cream with you, and apply it after each hand washing. This will greatly help relieve dry skin.

4. Wear lip balm. Choose a lip balm that feels good on your lips. Some healing lip balms can irritate your lips. If your lips sting or tingle after you apply the lip balm, switch to one that does not cause this reaction.

5. Use only gentle, unscented skin care products. Some skin care products are too harsh for dry, sensitive skin. When your skin is dry, stop using:

Deodorant soaps
Skin care products that contain alcohol, fragrance, retinoids, or alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA)

Avoiding these products will help your skin retain its natural oils.

6. Wear gloves. Our hands are often the first place we notice dry skin. You can reduce dry, raw skin by wearing gloves. Be sure to put gloves on before you:

Go outdoors in winter
Perform tasks that require you to get your hands wet
Get chemicals, greases, and other substances on your hands

7. Choose non-irritating clothes and laundry detergent. When our skin is dry and raw even clothes and laundry detergent can be irritating. To avoid this:

Wear cotton or silk under your clothing made of wool or another material that feels rough
Use laundry detergent labeled “hypoallergenic”

8. Stay warm without cozying up to a fireplace or other heat source. Sitting in front of an open flame or other heat source can dry your skin.

9. Add moisture to the air. Plug in a humidifier. If you can check your home heating system, find out if you have a humidifier on the system — and whether it’s working.

When to see a dermatologist

Your skin should start to feel better quickly. If these changes do not bring relief, you may want to see a dermatologist. Very dry skin can require a prescription ointment or cream. Dry skin also can be a sign of a skin condition that needs treatment. A dermatologist can examine your skin and explain what can help reduce your discomfort.
