Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. DO HOT FOMANTATION. Paracetamol 250mg OD & SOS x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab OD x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.. Do not ignore .It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
This is become a very common diagnosis in young girls and women who present with a history of irregular/ prolonged/delayed periods. Not usually associated with pain.
Pcos is a genetically inherited condition and usually is linked to a family history of diabetes. It is associated with high levels of male hormones- androgens/ testosterone and hence features of hirsutism which is developing male type hair pattern in female i. E unwanted hair on chest/ face etc// tendency to develop acne and oily skin. It is also usually associated with obesity/ overweight. Usg pelvis shows presence of numerous small cysts in ovary. Many women might find it difficult to conceive as because of hormonal imbalance an egg is not released every month. There is also a preopensity to develop type 2 diabetes later in life.
Almost all the symptoms are treatable with medicines. However as it is genetically linked and has long term health implications the single most important thing is to try and reduce weight and mantain normal bmi. This can be achieved by a combination of exercise and diet.

How to detoxify lungs? When it gets effected by smoking. Please give some suggestion to detoxify my lung.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Perhaps it means that you are already afraid that you have damaged your lungs from years of smoking. The tobacco tar, which is the carcinogenic substance in tobacco smoke, lines your lungs with patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke affects the oxygen carrying capacity of the hemoglobin or red blood cells to make you gasp for breath. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Because smoking uses the respiratory system it gives you a faster kick. The lining of your throat is also affected and damaged over the years that you begin to experience the smokers’ cough. Obviously this tobacco tar is the cancer causing agent and that is horrible way to end your life. There are a host of other dangerous substances in tobacco smoke (in fact 7000 of them) that it is difficult to put the whole list here, and it is not enough to focus on only the effects to lungs. Because cigarette smoke is ingested through the respiratory system, it is the lungs which are directly affected. So you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. You need to now bring improvement to your lungs by doing a lot of aerobic exercise while breathing through your nostrils only. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health.

My arm and lag are very weak, we want know, how to build & grow muscles, which made me strong and fit.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Firstly understand that weight gain is very dependent on genetics and metabolism. It is important to know that just eating just two heavy meals a day will not help. Eating the right foods at the right time is very important. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least thrice a week. Even if you were to take medicines or supplements they will not work in isolation you need to have a calorie and nutrient dense meal.

Nonfat or low-fat milk or milk products if you are non vegetarian then extra-lean meats, chicken without the skin, fish, or cooked dried beans and peas. Also take 8-10 glasses of water.

Skin Problems - Is Dandruff The Cause of it?

DDVL, MBBS
Dermatologist, Bangalore
Skin Problems - Is Dandruff The Cause of it?

Dandruff or seborrhea refers to the flaky condition of your skin or scalp caused primarily due to dryness. It is a very common problem for young adults and middle aged people, but can happen to any person regardless of age. Dandruff itself being an embarrassing problem, can also sometimes lead to other skin problems.

The following are a few skin problems that can crop up due to dandruff: 

  1. Can cause pimple: If dandruff or the white flakes fall on your T-zone region very often, then it may lead to the breakout of pimples on your skin.
  2. May result in pigmentation: The pimples, which can happen due to dandruff can further lead to the problem of pigmentation. This condition leads to the appearance of unwanted black spots all over your face.
  3. Trigger eczema: Dandruff makes skin problems like eczema and psoriasis even worse. Eczema and psoriasis, which causes itching of the skin can get severe due to dandruff.
  4. Rashes are also a possibility: Facial rashes can also develop due to dandruff. Often areas around the eyebrows, nose and ears get affected. Sometimes, in case of men, beard rashes also pop up.
  5. Chest rashes: Dandruff often falls all over your body.This can lead to the problem of chest rashes. This condition results in the appearance of red spots all around your chest region.

Dandruff can be a very distressing problem. If your skin type is oily, dandruff can make conditions far worse. Dandruff is such a problem that cannot be completely cured, but can only be controlled. So, it is highly advisable to take preventive measures as soon as it is detected to avoid further problems.

I am 29 years old male, please give the tips for weight gain.

DUSM
Unani,
I am 29 years old male, please give the tips for weight gain.
One simple substitution you can make when trying to gain weight is swapping your skim milk for whole milk. It?s only 60 calories more a glass as the fat is left in. When you keep the fat in milk, the vitamins and nutrients stay in the solution. Whole milk is high in vitamin D and A. Add whole milk where ever you would use skim, such as in oatmeal, cereal, sauces, or just as a glass of milk. If you enjoy milk in your coffee, you can also use cream here. then Focus on exercise

I have small vaginal opening due to which we cant do intercourse successfully. Please let me know about use of dilators or other means to widen the vaginal opening.

MSc-Psychology, MHSc-Reproductive and Sexual Medicine, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Sexologist, Hyderabad
Vagina is a stretchable organ and no vagina in an adult is small for sex . What you are referring to as vaginal opening is hymen . Hymen in a thin sheet covering the entrance of vagina. It has a small opening. It gets ruptured usually at first sex with minimal pain with or without bleeding . Good number of girls fear pain at first sex and tighten the muscles around vaginal opening . So the problem is in the mind not in vagina. Psychotherapy along with vaginal dilatation is the treatment

This medicine is prescribed for control of seizures. It is safe to use it. I would advice regular check up with your neurologist at least once a year. Small cysts in the ovaries do not affect other parts of the body. They are usually functional and may be related to hormonal changes.

Dear lybrate user, its always good to start on your fitness program. Every step matters. Its never too late. Aim should be to do intensive cardio/aerobic exercises for at least an hour every day. Regular mat based yoga is too slow/light to give any significant weight loss benefits. Better to go to gym and do your own exercises. Or join zumba or aerobic classes. If you are going to gym you can follow following routine. #a. 5 minutes light warm up with side jumps and stretches. #b. 10 minutes treadmill with speeds from 6-8 kmph #c. 10 mins abs and stretches. #d. 10 mins cycling with speeds from 25-32 kmph. #e 5 mins. Light weights and dumbells #6.10 mins treadmill #7.10 mins stretches and abs crunches. Stay fit. Stay healthy. Stay happy.
