God bless her long, happy and healthy life. There is no need for any special purchase. No need of shampoo, cream etc. sponging specially of folded areas as arm pit etc is sufficient up to 1 month of age. Do not go for any specific brand. Select yourself with your own skill. Exclussive Breast feed up to 6 months of age is best food.

When ever I use my laptop for 1hr my eyes start hurting and they become red. I will have headache.

When ever I use my laptop for 1hr my eyes start hurting and they become red. I will have headache.
Taking frequent breaks by taking your eyes off the screen (eg, 1 or 2 min every 30 min), gently washing eyes with cool fresh water, cold packs on closed eyes for few minutes, etc, may usually help. Try these measures first. Otherwise, you may need a complete eye evaluation by an ophthalmologist.

I am having problem in my eyes from last 3 years. Eyes always get red fully blood. What should I do now.

I am having problem in my eyes from last 3 years.
Eyes always get red fully blood.
What should I do now.
Hello, Bloodshot eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: Eye dryness Too much sun exposure Dust or other particles in the eye Allergies Infection Injury Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. Other causes of eye redness include Colds or allergies, Acute glaucoma, Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter.

Sir/mam suggest any treatment for shrunken eyes. Am having it for almost one yr. It looks very ugly.

Sir/mam suggest any treatment for shrunken eyes.
Am having it for almost one yr. It looks very ugly.
Hello lybrate-user. There are a few treatment options available for sunken eyes. The option amenable would vary with the cause for your shrunken eyes. Let me enumerate them in brief: (1) injection of fillers. These are substances that can be injected around the eyes. Their effect persists for 3 to 6 months after which they could require repetition. (2) cosmetic usage. The use of cosmetics could probably aid in hiding the shrunken appearance. It would be a good idea to consult an oculo-plastic surgeon (the one dealing with plastic surgery around the eyes). This would enable you to get better help.

Thyroid should stay in control with regular treatment. Do not self medicate or suddenly stop hypothyroid treatment. Not treating thyroid can give rise to many effects eg. Obesity, lethargy. For the dry eyes which can be again observed in hypothyroidism please get screened for any other underlying auto immune disorder and start eye drops for dry eyes based on type of dry eyes .You will need an opthalmologist and an endocrinologist to help you out in this regard. Thanks.

You may be suffering from jaundice. Consult your physician doctor and get a body check up done. You may also require laboratory tests in the form of complete haemogram, liver function tests and kidney function tests. Taking treatment with the physician for your general health condition will improve your eye condition as well. Take care of your self. Refrain from addictions if you have any. Take care.

Don't scratch the wound but see to it that there is decreased inflammation of the wound and after three days a thick dry layer of slough will come out on its own

5 truths about protecting your eyes

Myth: Carrots are the best food for the eyes.

Fact: Carrots, which contain vitamin A, are indeed good for the eyes. But fresh fruits and dark green leafy vegetables, which contain more antioxidant vitamins such as C and E, are even better. Antioxidants may even help protect the eyes against cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Just don't expect them to prevent or correct basic vision problems such as nearsightedness or farsightedness.

How we can gain muscles without gaining a fat. And. How we can reduce yellowish from our eyes.
The yellowish you r talking is normal pigmentation of conjunctiva (a thin membrane covering eye ball). There is no way to get rid of this and its perfectly normal like our skin colour. Do not think about it.

Dear lybrate user, red eyes could be because of many reasons but commonly it is due to allergy or infection. You need to visit eye specialist to differentiate between the two as the treatment is different. Also get your eyes checked for any glass power

After siting in front of laptop for 1 an hour. Automatically some pain occurs in eye. What can I do.

After siting in front of laptop for 1 an hour. Automatically some pain occurs in eye. What can I do.
Eye strain, or asthenopia, is when the eyes get tired from excessive or intense use. It can be annoying, but it tends to disappear with rest. Although it’s not often a serious condition, eye strain could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Eye strain is known to cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and headaches Eye strain may lead to other problems, such as: • Headaches • Difficulty Concentrating • Irritability • Burning Sensation • Watery Eyes • Dry Eyes • Photophobia • Eye Pain 1. The first thing you can do is change your environment and work habits. By doing this you can relieve the pain without spending money on treatment. If you work on the computer, try taking more eye breaks by looking down the hall or out the window, or by closing your eyes for thirty seconds. You should get your eyes checked at least once a year, especially as you grow older. Routine eye exams give you the opportunity to discuss with your Eye Specialist any issues you may be having, and they may enable you to catch any problems in their early stages. Age Frequency 0 to 6 months Minimum of once a year 6 months to 18 years Every 2 – 4 years 19 to 39 years Every 3 – 5 years 40 to 64 years Every 2 – 4 years 65 and older Every 1 – 2 years If you spend a lot of time sitting in front of a computer or reading, you may need prescription glasses solely for those activities. Prevention of Eyes From Straining If you work on a computer, taking eye breaks for five minutes every hour can lessen the strain on your eyes. Simply closing your eyes for a few moments can also do wonders. Try standing up, moving around, or taking a short walk to help regain concentration.Regular eye exercises that involve focusing on different distances can help prevent future straining. Blink often. Blinking refreshes and replenishes your eyes naturally.If you are having trouble with blinking due to the dryness of your eyes, try using Homoeopathic CINELUBE EYEDROPS ( HAPDCO) 3 times daily.
