I have many pimples on my face. I will use face washing creams. What should I do sir.
Do nothing but wash face with normal water at night. Smear fresh aloevera gel and keep it overnight or for two hrs at least. Wash again normally. After three days add daruhridra powder, turmeric powder and kesar powder pinch in this aloe vera, mix well, smear on face for two hrs and wash as before. You will get benefit with this only in few days but for complete treatment and removing scars.

Dear sir I advise you to get these hydrocele operated it is very simple operation under local anaesthesia doctors will take out the fluid from the sac so that you won't have any recurrence in future. You may not have to get hospitalised even also you are fully conscious and you can watch the procedure on screen yourself during operation, otherwise you may consult some homeopathic doctor. But it may recur again. So consult your family member and have their opinion. The operative procedure is very easy provided you don't have any other diseases like heart ailments liver ailments etc

Massage butter oil into your scalp and hair daily before your shower. Eat sesame. Regularly wash hair with a gram flour and milk/curd mixture. Rub hair regularly with onion paste, and it will turn black. Take a multivitamin containing minerals like zinc and copper, which prevent premature graying.

Hello,Homoeopathic medicines are less invasive and have more herbal approach towards gaining the weight. There are a number of homoeopathic medicines, which treat the root cause behind the body’s inability to gain weight or bulk up. 1. Take alfalfa tonic(wsi), 2 – 2 tsp. Thrice a day, half an hour before meals. 2. Calcarea phos 200, 5 drops , once in aweek , morning empty stomach for 2 weeks. 3. Take eggs, milk, butter, bananas, potatoes, mangoes, figs, oats, soyabean and dry fruits. 4. do light exercises regularly to keep your body active. These homoeopathic medicines and dietary addition will increase your appetite and give your metabolism a healthy boost. ***If you do not get results with this treatment then please revert me i will suggest you to go through some tests.***

My age 25 weight 50 I'm very thin how can I become fat and normal person as for my age?

My age 25 weight 50 I'm very thin how can I become fat and normal person as for my age?
Gaining weight is as difficult as losing it, if you are naturally thin. Skinny people complain that they can't put on any weight.If you want to build up weight, don't just eat high-calorie junk foods and rely on unnecessary supplements. Choose foods that are energy-dense and nutrient-dense whenever possible. Following are some tips to follow to increase your weight. You will take some time to gain the weight you need, but be patient. 1. If you have a rapid metabolism, then you must increase your daily intake of healthy foods (increase your intake of carbohydrates) to compensate for the rate at which you burn energy. Eat six smaller meals a day You should also eat more energy dense foods like healthy oils, dry fruits, seeds, nuts, pulses, etc. along with some starchy foods like potatoes, cereals, bread, pasta, rice, etc. 2. Consume more calories than you burn. Choose healthy calorie-dense food to add calories. Drink healthy beverages to add calories. Mangoes are rich in calories and carbohydrates, include them in your diet. 3. Eat healthy food frequently, 5-6 times a day - 3 larger meals and 3 smaller meals alternately. Separate them by at least 3 hours so you can digest each meal fully. Don't go without food for 5-6 hours after having a major meal. For example, if you wish to consume 3000 calories a day, you may eat 3 larger meals of about 650 calories and 3 smaller meals of about 450 calories. 4. Have a balanced diet. 5. Exercise regularly for putting on weight. Some thin people think that exercise is not good for them. This is not true, it keeps the metabolism high. Remember that eating alone is not sufficient. You don't want to gain fat but lean mass, so exercise is important. Resistance training exercises will help to increase your muscle mass, which in turn will increase metabolism. Learn to distinguish between weight gaining exercises and weight loss exercises. Note that if you do not get enough amino acids during exercise, the existing muscle may break down. Amino acids come from protein foods so you should eat such foods after exercise. Keep in mind that excessive exercise without putting back the energy you have used will not help you to put on weight.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Not that everyone who gets constipated or has hard stools gets hemorrhoids (pilles). But most often over straining, badly constipated stools are possible reasons. Precautions to be taken are_ Increase the intake of green leafy vegetables, fruits, salads. Avoid highly spicy foods, take plenty of water and juices. Develop good bowel habits, visit the toilet as you get the urge. Do not allow stools to become hard. Some times with all the precautions still hemorrhoids do develop. Thanks.

What You Need to Know About Neck Sprains and Strains

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
What You Need to Know About Neck Sprains and Strains

A neck strain and sprain is not a serious injury. However, they can still cause significant dysfunction and pain.
Causes of Neck Strain
The anatomy of the cervical spine is such that it not only houses, but also protects the spinal cord. Along with this it supports the head and allows it for mobility and motion. But this area, which allows the spine to be flexible can also leave it vulnerable for injury.

Triggers for the onset of neck muscle strain can be:

  1. Too much time spent in an uncomfortable position, such as humping over the steering wheel while driving, bending over the computer monitor, talking on the phone while placing it in the crook of the neck.
  2. Sleeping on a very high or too firm pillow can lead to an uncomfortable position of the head thus leading to the strain of the neck
  3. Carrying heavy objects on one side of the body
  4. Any trauma that might have impacted the neck, such as an accident, whiplash or a fall that might have had a head landing

Most events of a neck muscle strain or the soft tissue sprain, such as the tendons and ligaments lead to stiff neck along with pain in shoulders. There is also pain and difficulty in moving the neck or head.

Neck muscle strain remedies

Minor strains in the tendons, ligaments and muscles of the neck usually heal within a day or two. But till the symptoms subside, there are a few self care remedies that are effective in reducing the stiffness and pain. These are:

  1. Application of cold or ice packs: The cold reduces the inflammation, which in turn allows the strain to heal. This ice pack should be applied for 20 minutes interval in the first 24 hours.
  2. Application of heat: Heat helps in bringing the nutrient rich blood to the affected area in order to stimulate a healing response. Moist heat as well as heat from a hot shower or bath can be used. Some people might find relief from applying heat wraps such as thermacare.
  3. Over-the-counter or OTC medications: Anti-inflammatory medication, such as naproxen and ibuprofen reduces inflammation, thereby leading to the reduction in pain. Pain relieving medicines such as acetaminophen can also be taken as this reduces the perception of pain.
  4. Massage of the affected area: A gentle massage in the affected area helps in stimulating the blood flow of the area which in turn helps in a quick healing.

Hello. It's too early to come to the conclusion. Better wait for another few more months. As the bay grows, the vellus hair falls of and they are replaced by the thick hair. The number of hair follicles (roots) he is born with will remain on his scalp, so feed him properly for good healthy hair. Now, after 6 months, can introduce him top foods like 'mashed moong/ masur dal', 'khichri', mashed banana, mashed apple, mashed potato, suji halwa, par-boiled egg, etc. Apart from the diet, do give him Homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe's Biocombination- 6 (which contains calcium & iron both for good built) - 2 tablets thrice a day for 3 months. Get back to me only after an year or so or else even before that. All the best!

My cycles started on 16th April. Now which are the safest days for having unprotected intercourse.

My cycles started on 16th April. Now which are the safest days for having unprotected intercourse.
If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. That is UNSAFE PERIOD during which you should not have it. Period other than this fertile period in a menstrual cycle is considered as SAFE PERIOD.
