Sneezing, sore throat, a stuffy nose, coughing - everyone knows the symptoms of the common cold. It is probably the most common illness. In the course of a year, people in the united states suffer 1 billion colds. What can you do for your cold or cough symptoms? besides drinking plenty of fluids and getting plenty of rest, you may want to take medicines. There are lots of different cold and cough medicines, and they do different things. Nasal decongestants - unclog a stuffy nose...i.e ................ nasal dop/spray.....nasivion Cough suppressants - quiet a cough...................................... syp. Brozedax Expectorants - loosen mucus so you can cough it up.............syp...zeet expectorant Antihistamines - stop runny noses and sneezing.....................tab/syp....levocetirizine Pain relievers - ease fever, headaches, and minor aches and pains.......tab..flucold plus . Here are some other things to keep in mind about cold and cough medicines. Read labels, because many cold and cough medicines contain the same active ingredients. Taking too much of certain pain relievers can lead to serious injury. Do not give cough medicines to children under four, and don't give aspirin to children. Finally, antibiotics won't take. for weekness you can take cap. zevit once a day.

Masturbation is very common. There are no health risks with masturbation. Skin irritation (rashes) is possible, but using plenty of lubrication will keep that from happening. If you worry that you masturbate too much, ask yourself this question: Does masturbation interfere with my daily functioning? If it interrupts or gets in the way of your job, your responsibilities, or your social life, you may need to consult with a doctor. Masturbation does NOT make sex organs shrink or grow or change color, texture, or appearance. Masturbation does NOT cause infertility — men and boys will not run out of sperm. What to do to get rid of this masturbation: -Use Library for study if you are student. -Do not be alone at home/ room. -Read good books/ avoid watching porn movies. -Remember god in morning/ sleeping time. -Keep portrait of some your family member or god in your room. Feel free to consult again, I will suggest you some other techniques too when u start on working on these.

It may not be due to b12 deficiency. 1. Take one tablet of crocin pain relief sos after food upto a maximum of 3 tablets daily 2. Apply volini gel twice daily 3. Give warm compress locally 4. Take rest if you have recurrent attack of neck pain a) take x ray/mri cervical spine to exclude spondylitis and consult orthopedic specialist b) sometimes it could be due to bad sitting posture while reading or working on computer. Adopt proper sitting posture, put neck rest, use soft pillow while sleeping c) do physio therapy and neck exercise after consulting physiotherapist.

What is the main reason of AIDS? Because I'm suffering from AIDS for four months? So please help me about my health?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, The HIV infection is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus . After HIV is in the body, it starts to destroy CD4+ cells, which are white blood cells that help the body fight infection and disease. HIV is spread when blood, semen, or vaginal fluids from an infected person enter another person's body, usually through sexual contact, from sharing needles when injecting drugs, or from mother to baby during birth. Most people who have become recently infected with HIV will not have any symptoms. They may, however, have a flu-like illness within a month or two after exposure to the virus, with fever, headache, tiredness, and enlarged lymph nodes (glands of the immune system easily felt in the neck and groin). These symptoms usually disappear within a week to a month and are often mistaken for those of other viral infections. During this period, people are very infectious, and HIV is present in large quantities in blood, semen, and vaginal fluids.

I am 16 years old. I am suffering from cold for 2 days. What should I do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Scabies is an itchy skin condition caused by the microscopic mite Sarcoptes scabei. It is common all over the world, and can affect anyone. Scabies spreads quickly in crowded conditions where there is frequent skin-to-skin contact between people. Hospitals, child-care centers, and nursing homes are examples. Scabies can easily infect sex partners and other household members. Sharing clothes, towels, and bedding can sometimes spread scabies. This can happen much more easily when the infested person has crusted scabies. You cannot get scabies from a pet. Pets get a different mite infection called mange. Symptoms are Pimple-like irritations or a rash Intense itching, especially at night Sores caused by scratching The infected person's clothes, bedding and towels should be washed in hot water and dried in a hot dryer. Treatment is also recommended for household members and sexual partners.Several lotions are available to treat scabies. Medicines that may be prescribed include: 5% permethrin cream: This is the most common treatment for scabies. It is safe for children as young as 1 month old and women who are pregnant.  25% benzyl benzoate lotion. 10% sulfur ointment.  10% crotamiton cream. 1% lindane lotion.

I want to know about pancreatitis. What is the chance of life risk for any symptoms of pancreas. What is the reason of pancreatitis, as wel as I want to know about pancreas stone and gallblader stone and there life risk chances. And reason of the problems. And what is the best way of cure?

MD - General Medicine, Diploma in Diabetology
General Physician,
Pancreatitis means inflammation of pancreas. Pancreas is the organ which produces enzymes which helps in digestion of food and it secretes insulin and anti insulin hormone. If there is pancreatitis patient will have severe abdominal pain nausea vomiting, intolerance to fatty food, as it helps in digestion of fat. In long run patient will develop diabetes. Gallstones n pancreatic stones are are formed in the ducts through which bile and pancreatic enzymes pass through n opens in the initial part of the small intestine called jejunum where food which has been partially digested by enzymes in stomach needs to be alkalized as it's too acidic and prepared to be digested and absorbed. Some time stones in these passages can cause obstruction alone to the flow of bile then jaundice will develop. If stone is in distal part where pancreatic duct joins the bile duct that just before the opening in to intestine in that case flow of bile and pancreatic secretion will be blocked and along with jaundice, pancreatitis will develop, which is very severe and dangerous situation. People those who take too spicy and oily food, and drink excessive alcohol stand chances to develop pancreatitis and gallstones. Obesity too is a risk factor to develop pancreatitis.
