Drink and eat cold stuff like milk based ice creams, shakes, curd, it will reduce burning. And be careful not to have any hard food like chips, biscuits for one week. Sensations will be back by itself.

Cronic, recurrent headache is your chief complaint. Females commonly suffer from migraine which runs in the family. Check if the headache happens on exposure to bright sun. Before periods. Etc. If there is a positive family history. It reconfirms the diagnosis. Usually there are features like nausea/vomiting along with headache. As its been there since many years, it is unlikely that you have not gone for thorough check up. If nothing has been done, consult a physician and do some tests as he /she suggests. There are treatment for migraine. Diagnosing the cause is important.

It seems to be due to sinusitis and for headache take tablet paracetamol 650 mg eight hourly and I will suggest you to buy a steam inhaler machine of crescent company and take a flow of steam (of plain water only) over the forehead through the inhaler and can repeat the process after eight hours as and when required.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, from what you have described, you appears to have what is called a Retro Calcaneal Bursitis and you need to consult an orthopedic Surgeon for Investigation and Diagnosis and treatment. In the mean time you please use loose shoes and have to the following-1. Physical therapy in the form of relaxation exercises of the ankle joint up and down few times each time before walking from rest position. 2.Heat therapy in the form of taking Luke warm Water in a bucket half and dip the foot and ankle and repeat the same exercises under water for 10-15 mts. 3.

As soon as my friend inserts his penis in the vagina after 1 or 2 seconds the erection goes.

BHMS
Homeopath,
As soon as my friend inserts his penis in the vagina after 1 or 2 seconds the erection goes.
Dear lybrate user, kindly note that if you are unmarried & indulge in sexual relation after an interval of minimum 7 days then you are bound to discharge quickly during intercourse but that does not imply that you have any disease. It occurs due to loss of control of the muscles of penis. Normally it is seen that when a person does sexual intercourse daily he gains control over the muscles of penis & can stay longer during sex. You need to take homoeopathic mother tincture salix nigra q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water to get rid of premature ejaculation. But before taking any medicine kindly notice whether you are having a second erection within 15 minutes of ejaculation for the first time. If you are not experiencing any erection within 15 minutes of ejaculation then you are surely suffering from erectile dysfunction. There will be a change of medication in this case. To get rid of erectile dysfunction you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture agnus castus q q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with medicines you can also try a home therapy to boost your sexual performance. Soak 4-5 dry dates (khurma khajur) in a cup of lukewarm milk before going to bed daily. On waking up next morning eat those soaked dry dates & discard the milk. Repeat the process daily. This therapy often gives effective result within 15 days there are many conventional allopathic sexual pills in market such as adegra, viagra, penegra etc. Refrain yourself from using such pills as those pills contain a steroid called sildenafil. This steroid has a unique temporary effect on erectile problems. Patients using these pills for first time often report that their penis remain strong even after ejaculation. Such effects leads the patients to use sildenafil for prolonged course of time as they often feel that a full erection is possible only after taking sildenafil. Moreover it is very low cost & easy availability of this steroid has made it quite common as sexual medicine. But the bitter truth is prolonged use of sildenafil will permanently disable the normal physiological process behind erection & will render your body to become solely dependent upon sildenafil for erection. As a result you won't feel any slightest normal erection without taking sildenafil. This is an irreversible condition & it cannot be treated by any means. Once you attain this condition you become a life-time customer of that steroid sildenafil because you have to take sildenafil in order to satisfy your partner. As prevention is always better than cure I would advise you to check the composition of any sexual pills before buying. Discard any sexual pills which contains sildenafil in its composition. If you are suffering from premature ejaculation then along with medicine & home therapy you can try the kegel's exercise. You have to do this exercise once daily during the first time of urination after waking up from sleep at morning. Kindly note the following steps to perform the kegel's exercise:- 1) start urinating until you feel that you have voided almost half amount of urine from bladder. 2) when you feel you have voided almost half of the urine try to stop the flow of urine by squeezing the internal muscles of penis. 3) you should not use your hands to stop the flow. Your hands should be resting on your waist. You have to stop the urine only by your self control over the internal muscles of penis. 4) try to stop the urine flow by the control of internal muscles up to 20 seconds. On the very first day you won't be able to hold the urine for more than 3 seconds. However, practicing the exercise daily will improve your control over the muscles of penis & after 15-20 days you will be able to stop the urine for 20 seconds by the control of your pelvic muscles. This control of pelvic muscles will help you to get rid of premature ejaculation while you are performing sexual intercourse 5) after 20 seconds is over, void the rest of the urine. Do not stop the flow of urine for more than 30 seconds. N. P.- kegel's exercise is effective only in the case of premature ejaculation & it is not helpful for patients suffering from erectile dysfunction.

Dear lybrate user, sperm cells are being continuously produced inside human testis. A single sperm cell needs about 4 months to mature before being ejaculated. Masturbating ejaculates many mature as well as immature sperm & results in the temporary deficit of sperm count. This loss of sperm results in the increased production of sperm. A sperm is mainly made up of protein. An increased production of sperm count needs a steady supply of protein. This supply of protein is met from the amount of protein we intake daily. Over masturbation increases the rate of production of sperm to such extent that the demand for protein cannot be fulfilled naturally & it often results in breakdown of protein from muscle tissues. This breakdown of muscle tissues is externally manifested as fatigue, weakness etc. Addiction to masturbation denotes that you are continuously indulged in sexual thoughts. This type of thoughts is common in people who live a sedentary life. If you really have a sedentary life-style you should get yourself out from it immediately. Socialize yourself. Do some physical exercise daily. Drink a lots of water. Create a routine of your daily schedule & maintain it. Stop watching porn in case you have developed a habit of watching it also you can take homoeopathic mother tincture origanum q, 10 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to control your excessive sexual desire. However, you can masturbate for twice in a week. In order to minimise the after-effects of over-masturbation you can take homoeopathic cinchona officinalis 30 or china 30, 5 drops, thrice daily in empty stomach. This medicine will help to fight the seminal debility caused by the sexual exertion created by over-masturbation. Also I would like to advise you to conduct your semen analysis test. It will reveal the abnormalities in your semen if you really have any. If you find any abnormality in your semen analysis report then you should obviously consult me.

Hi lybrate-user. Nose block may be due to many reasons like mass or polyps in nose or deviated septum or polypoidal mucosa due to allergy and this can only be diagnosed after clinical examination. For symptomatic relief you can use nasivion nasal drops and tab. Montair-l daily at night. Steam inhalation will be beneficial for u. For any further queries you can contact me.

Does masturbation cause loss of memory power? Since I am in habit of masturbating abt 4 times in a week.
Masturbation in Men :Myths, Benefits and harms. Masturbation is a kind of topic which is normally avoided by people as they consider it as a taboo. However, masturbation is healthy and completely normal sexual behaviour. There are so many myths associated with masturbation which are really not true. However, masturbating can have some adverse effects but a few. But, masturbation is not dirty and doesn’t make you less as a person, so don’t feel ashamed or bad about masturbation and activities related to it. Masturbation is a process in which a person derives sexual pleasure and satisfaction by stroking or rubbing his/her genitals by his/her hands manually and using sex toys. It is normally done solo but, also performed in relationships to get orgasm and sex arousal. It’s completely a normal activity of humans which has got no harmful physical and emotional effects. Masturbation has got so many benefits to human body and in the case of excessive masturbation it could lead few harmful effects. Myths: Masturbation minimizes sexual performance and libido later in life. Masturbation reduces the quantity of semen. Masturbation badly affects the quality of semen. Masturbation makes semen thin in texture making it watery. Masturbation causes blindness. Masturbation causes mental illness. Masturbation causes infertility. Masturbation causes growth of hair on palms. BENIFITS: Manages your premature ejaculation. Reduces the risk of Prostate Cancer. Makes you pelvic muscles strong to prevent erectile dysfunction. Improves sperm quality and motility. Helps your sexual intercourse to enhance by increasing your sexual longevity. Reduces nasal congestion during cold and flu. Reduces stress and depression. Enhances your mood. Helps to get good sleep for insomnia patients. Makes you aware of your sexuality. Enhances your immune system. Satisfies your sexual desire and strengthens your relationships. Controlled masturbation will not effect height. Eat more vegetables and fruits. Harmful effects: Can cause parasympathetic nervous functions which leads to over production of sex hormones and neurotransmitters which cause side effects like fatigue, memory loss, hair loss, groin pain and blurred vision. Cause obsessive compulsive behaviour like addiction to masturbation. Cause bruises if stroked too vigorously. Leads to hardening of the penis skin. Causes desensitized of penis skin. Can cause seminal leakage. Masturbation is nothing evil or sinful, so no need of getting ashamed of yourself. Rather it’s a matured sexual activity to keep yourself sexually active, sexually satisfied and your mind in control. It is totally normal and safe sexual behaviour for both men and women. It enhances your health in every aspect, but remember too much of anything can be real bad. So, do masturbate more often to stay healthy and keep enjoying!
