What are the symptoms of dengue and its precautions also and one more thing how to loss weight easily.
The principal symptoms of dengue are: -high fever and at least two of the following: -severe headache -severe eye pain (behind eyes) -joint pain -muscle and/or bone pain -rash -mild bleeding manifestation (nose or gum bleed, petechiae, or easy bruising) Watch for warning signs as temperature declines 3 to 5 days after symptoms/fever began, as this is the most dangerous period when platelet counts decline significantly. Report immediately to hospital if any of the following warning signs appear: -severe abdominal pain or persistent vomiting -red spots or patches on the skin -bleeding from nose or gums -vomiting blood -black, tarry stools  -drowsiness or irritability -pale, cold, or clammy skin -difficulty breathing There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection. -Use analgesics with acetaminophen (crocin or dolo -650 mg) and avoid those containing ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or aspirin containing drugs. -Take rest, drink plenty of fluids like coconut water, lime water etc.to prevent dehydration. -Avoid visiting heavily populated residential areas, if possible. -Use mosquito repellents/mosquito nets when indoors.

Dear, home remedy for dry cough: 5 basil leaves, 4 black pepper, 4 munakka, 5 gms liquorice (mulethi), 3 gms banafsha - boil these in 200 ml of water till it becomes 100 ml. Filter it. Add 2-3 patasha in it and drink lukewarm for 3-4 nights. Sleep well covered. Dry cough will be relieved. Also continue to chew mulethi. You can also have steam with vicks although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.

I have a skin infections that's concentrated in my groin area but has spread to a few places across my body. There's a lot of itching in my inner thighs and it started most probably because of ringworm. The ringworm rash is also there on my hand and legs in 3-4 places. The itching in the groin area and even outside the anus is very annoying. Now, there are white circles/patches on my scrotum which don't itch but are still scary.

Hi lybrate-user, Don't worry you need psychotherapy for your problem. First of all I need you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Do it daily for 15 minutes whenever you can.

Mr. Lybrate-user usually ideal bp should be maintained around 120 - 130 systolic and 70 to 80 mm hg of diastolic. Higher than recommended diastolic pressure is no good, does not allow proper relaxation of the heart. As regards triglycerides, which are in control with 128 mg, still it is better to continue the treatment. Also it is essential to exercise regularly, which help in maintaining lipids in normal range. Thanks.

In that case, clean your outer ear with a cloth and try one of the following to remove the blockage: place a few drops of mineral oil, baby oil, water, or commercial ear drops into the inner ear to soften the wax, which will allow it to come out more easily.

I am 28 and having erection problems for the past one year. My penis is not erect enough for penetration. I am planning to get married. I have taken hormone test and free testosterone is normal but on the lower range. My penile Doppler shows arterial insufficiency and venous leak. Even after Viagra 50 mg I am not comfortable. I have taken health supplement such as E Drive and Nurokind LC. They have suggested me for penile implant. I am not comfortable with that. Please suggest me what has to be done.

Hello- Weak erection apart from normal testosterone levels is surely due to weak arterial supply as seen in your penile doppler tests. Over indulgence in masturbation, smoking etc can hurt the blood supply and can be the cause of future ED (erectile dysfunction). Viagra is just like a symptomatic treat, met for few hour, once it passes from the system, penis again becomes limp. Fortunately a permanent solution is available in ayurveda. A few weeks of treatment and exercise schedule can improve your arterial insufficiency hence erection forever.

You can not force anyone to like what you like similarly she can not force you not to like oral. You have ti go slow. Make more understanding. Give more pleasure. Slowly slowly you will get back. Do not expect in one day.
