gum bleeding is associated with periodontal problem.. tooth problem can be either periodontal or carious lesion,here is the solution for both of them it seems you might be having periodontal problem.. c/as pyorrhea...you need to get rid of it... it needs aggressive therapy...you need to make a habit of rinsing your mouth everytime you eat something and brush regularly (once in the morning before meals and once at night after dinner),add a mouthwash for better oral hygiene.... if the problem persist, you need to consult a dentist for more specific diagnosis and treatment would be tailored accordingly

Please do meditation before going to sleep. Relax - keep calm and believe in yourself. Believe that you can overcome the exams whatever it comes. Take good sleep. If there is some other cause of worry try to keep it aside till your exams are over. For further queries get back to me.

Suicidal Ideas

Suicidal Ideas

Its very common to have suicidal ideas while you are depressed. This is time you must go to a psychiatrist and take medications. Simple advice won't be useful at this level. Simple counselling wont lead to any wonder if you are harbouring suicidal thoughts. Never neglect in this stage as you can save yourself or the one you love.

I am 64 years old I am a regular consumer of alcohol for the past 40 years my daily intake is approx 350 mls of hard liquor I ONLY drink in the evenings, NEVER EVER DURING THE DAY TIME along with my drinks I only smoke 3 cigarettes Please kindly advise as what tonics I can take to maintain and prevent damage Thank you.

Dear user. I can understand. I am really sorry. There are no tonics available to keep your health intact or maintained when you continue taking liquor and cigarettes. 350 ml per day is almost half a bottle or 6 large. This is too much a daily dose. Please quit drinking and smoking. Then we can think about tonics to restore your health. Take care.

It is not uncommon to feel depressed after a loved one, especially a mother's, death. Although heartbreaking I must, as a psychiatrist, say that a week has passed and it seems like you have not moved on. It is very hard to get over the fact that your mother is not with you physically. However, lingering over the fact and becoming depressed is something that needs to be addressed at this point - since it has been 1 week since the incident happened. I hope you book an appointment with me as soon as possible. You can text, call or book an appointment to talk over the webcam if you wish. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

My in laws are always shouting and fighting. Shouting on my kids. I get depressed and angry. Please advise.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
If you are planning to stay with your in laws then it' s important to have open communication with them. Find out what is their reasons for fighting and tell them how it affects your children and you. They may or may not be able to understand you. As a parent it' s your responsibility to ensure that your children don' t undergo undue stress. You might want to keep them apart sometimes yet also let them develop their own relationship with each other. Some children have their own filters to filter out unwanted experiences while others get very much impacted. For more details click on private chat if you are interested.

Hi my husband is addicted in chewing pan masala I want to stop it how can I do it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You cannot stop him: he needs to want to stop this habit and only then he will succeed. You can, however, help him and support him when he wants to give it up. You can share the following information and see how he reacts: Chewing tobacco is really harmful especially because it is known to cause oral cancer and oral submucous fibrosis (SMF). Since it is an oral habit there are many substitutes that can be used to replace the oral stimulation. Of course, since it is a stimulant you cannot get the same effect and that is worth the loss to give up this very addictive habit. A dense fibrous tissue is deposited in the submucosal layer of the soft palate and cheek, causing disabling symptoms like trismus. It contains betel nuts, tobacco, lime, catechu and permitted spices and flavors. The first four substances damage the sensitive mucosa, causing constant irritation and micro trauma to the mucosa. Chemicals that are present act as a toxin. The phenol in the betel nut, with its caustic burning effect, destroys the mucosa, causing oral ulcers. The betel nut also contains tannins, which act as astringents, precipitating protein and damaging the mucosa. Altogether, this substance is known to be physiologically addictive. He can use replacements like nicotine chewing gum (if you want the stimulant effect, especially in the beginning) or ordinary chewing gum, hard candy and any other orally satiating substance, especially when the urge is very strong. He would have got conditioned to the habit to different times of the day and different situations. He must particularly avoid those occasions and occupy himself with something else attractive. He should get regular exercise, eat healthily, and get a good night’s rest every day. Visit a dentist and clean up his teeth and gums to wipe out all the reminders and damages of the habit. You may also get a thorough oral check up and treatment for any damages incurred. If he is unable to give it up on his own, he needs to be admitted into a rehabilitation center nearby until he is completely out of it. They will have him deal with all other issues also. Even after he comes out of the center, he must continue therapy and attend Smokers Anonymous meetings regularly.

Hi, as your son is in his" teens" which is very crucial time period for him, there are hormonal fluctuations which he is going through and at the same time, you do have to guide him properly so that he shouldn't get spoiled in bad company. The important point here is, you should have patience and a good communication with him, just break the ice and make friends with him so that he could able to confide in you and start sharing the things openly with you. But listen to him patiently even if he is going in wrong direction because building up that faith and confidence in you will let you hold his hand and take him in the right direction!

Dear lybrate user. There is no need to get depressed about your future and career. You have to concentrate on your present, study and perform well today. Do everything perfectly today and stop worrying about tomorrow. Automatically you will do well in your future and get good career. At the same time, if you worry about your future, you will not be able to perform today. That means your future will be spoiled automatically. Hope you can understand. You need counseling. Take care.

I want to avoid mental tensions. Can you please let me know the best way to avoid tensions.
Learn to use the replacement method, of changing every negative thought, as it arises, into a positive thought. Don't fight negative thoughts, just divert your attention a positive thoughts or mental images. Write down and keep a list of inspiring and uplifting quotes, and read them several times a day. Think positive and inspiring thoughts before falling asleep. Though it might not be so easy, try to keep an attitude inner detachment in dealing with difficult or unpleasant people. Don't take too personally their remarks or criticism. Don't watch thrillers or action movies on tv before going to bed or falling asleep. Reduce the number of times you listen to the news on the radio or tv. Know what is going on in the world, but there is no need to constantly fill your mind with news that cause you stress or fear. Repeat positive affirmations several times a day. Do so also when you experience stress or fear. -" I feel peace and tranquility filling my mind and body. -" my mind is calm, like a lake on a quiet summer day. -" I feel calm relaxed and peaceful. -" I am a center of peace, calmness and happiness.

Hi lybrate-user! Doctor hope you know the causes of alopecia reasons are many and you are not that old to suffer. Okay first you need to consult a skin specialist as well as cosmetologist to find out the exact reason. I do not know if you are staying with family married or unmarried. Okay first you should see to that you do not get dandruff, and your hair is clean, use herbal shampoo, use natural oil, keep your pillow cover clean, see to that you do not get fungal infection in scalp. Try ayurvedic massage with oil for head else you can even try with coconut oil, castor oil and Gingilly oil warm the oil and after it gets cooled you can apply half an hour before taking hair wash. You can even apply some natural henna lemon drops and curd pack and leave it half an hour and then take hair wash it actually relaxes your head and cleansed your hair. Once in a week you can try. Try to shave the hair on head quite often like 6 months once just to cure fungal infection and dandruff and to grow hair densely. Take care. Be relaxed. Depression also will cause hair loss so stop worrying. Take care. Be relaxed.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Sir I am having bipolar disorders mania and depression can I have problem in marriage life I mean in sex. I have not married.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No, you will not have a problem of the normal kind but you will have a vacillating nature to your sexual drive. During your manic phase you can have a heightened need and desire, and during the depressed phase, you can have a diminished need. Over a period of time, due to the effects of the medication, you could have a loss of sexual need. However, if you do exercise and keep yourself fit you could delay that effect and possibly can be weaned off of the medication if you had an episode-free three years. If you are concerned about it now, do visit a doctor for an examination for sexual functions.
