Masturabtion or stopping it has not any relation to prostate and you can do mastrubation for your good feeling and it is normal and safe It is a good exercise .Like every other kind of physical activity, sex burns calories, too! Sitting and watching TV burns about 1 calorie per minute. Having sex increases your heart rate and utilizes various muscle groups, burning about 5 calories per minute. Regular sex cannot replace sessions at the gym, but a having an active, healthy sex life is a nice way to get some extra physical activity. Sexual activity helps keep levels of hormones, like oestrogen and testosterone, in check. When these hormones are out of balance, conditions like heart disease and osteoporosis may develop. When it comes to protecting heart health by having sex, more is better. One study in men showed that those who had sex at least 2 times a week were 50% less likely to die of heart disease than their less sexually active men.

My face is fair and my body is dark. I use skin lite for my face. Is there any cream for the body to get equally fair?

Skinlite, melalite. Melacare etc are for specific skin conditions, which should be used only on prescrepition of a dermatologist. Over the counter usage of these creams for longers periods will lead atrophy of skin. Solar purpura, stria, acne, hypertrichosis etc and more blue black pigmentation (onchronosis) on long term usage. So it is strictly contraindicated for daily usage as a skin lighetening cream.

Hello sir mam is smoking effect our face skin and wt we should do to take care of our face skin.
Dear user. I can understand. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

I am suffering from face acne from 8 years. My skin is oily. Now it's become dark spot. Please tell me any solution.
it's a very common problem with a lot of solutions. These acne pimples if broken leave really dark marks. So steer clear from them. Don't pick at them. Avoid cosmetics and over the counter face products. Overwashing won't remove pimples or spots. You need to use cold water and wash face with a salicylic acid containing wash twice a day and not more. It vil help reduce the oiliness to a large degree. Avoid milk and milk products, you can have them occasionally. Instead, you can have tea or coffee. Do not stress over your problem its treatable. Stress vil only increase chances of more pimples. Exercise. You can practice meditation, it vil take your mind of your problem and create all the right chemicals in you. Make a mask of orange pulp, honey and curd-apply it across your face for fifteen minutes and wash it off. The orange vil decrease the oil, honey vil moisturise and curd vil hydrate.

How to Select Right Sunscreen

MD - Skin,VD & Lepxsy
Dermatologist, Hyderabad
How to Select Right Sunscreen

When selecting a sunscreen, make sure the label says:

  •     Broad spectrum: the words 'broad spectrum' means that the sunscreen can protect your skin from both types of harmful UV rays - the uva rays and the UVB rays.
  •     Spf 30 or higher: the aadmerican academy of dermatology recommends that you select a sunscreen with an SPF rating of 30 or higher.
  •     Water resistant: dermatologists also recommend that you look for the words 'water resistant.' this tells you that the sunscreen will stay on the wet or sweaty skin for a while before you need to reapply. Water resistance lasts either 40 or 80 minutes. Not all sunscreens offer water resistance.

I am a pure vegetarian, and blood is coming in my stool for 2-3 days continuously. And it is at least 10-12drop. There is no difficulty in passing the stool. It has also occurred to me 3-4 month before but it was 1-2 drops at that time and it occurred me for 4-5 days with 1-2 days gap between. It was suddenly alright. But now from 2-3 days it is continuous. And in excess. Is it a sign of having piles or just a sign of having it in future. Pls sir/mam tell me what do do in this situation. What diet should I take and medications along with it.

With all its moisturizing action, aloe vera is one of the most effective skin soothing agents. When you rub the gel over an itchy spot, it helps reduce the skin irritation in that area and provides quick relief from itching. Just break a leaf from the plant, cut it lengthwise using a knife and using a spoon, scoop out the jelly-like substance inside. Apply a little of this gel to the itchy area and leave it on for a few minutes.
