Eat lot of fruits & green leafy vegetables & drink plenty of water. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need coronoplasty (smoothen teeth edges) along with t. Rebagen 10, morning one tab & one at night for 5 days, c. Becosules 5 cap, for five days in the morning after meals. Hexigel ointment on the area of ulcer. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash after every meals.

First of all try and find the cause of low iron levels. Once treated your iron levels will rise. Apart from that include food which are rich in iron in your regular meals. Such foods include: dark green leafy vegetables, dates, jaggery, raisins, nuts, legumes, pulses, etc. Increase your intake of vitamin C rich foods such as berries, sweet lime, orange, etc. Vitamin C help is increasing absorption rate of iron in body.

I do not want to go for sinus operation. Can I use otrivin nasal drop whole life because in night I need it to have a sound sleep.

MS - ENT(Gold Medalist), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
U should not use otrivin nasal drops bcz on long term use causes side effect in form of rebound phenomenon called rhinitis medicamentosa that means persistent nasal block for which it is used. Instead of that use flomist nasal spray twice a day for 2 weeks and steam inhalation also twice a day.

Yesterday I swam longer distance than usual. Since then I feel quite out of breath with chest tightness. I'm also quite tired. I am often getting tired sooner than people my age. I often have chest tightness although today it is much worse. I am just lying down this afternoon. Could this be caused by anxiety? Am I making something out of nothing? How can I tell?

Being concerned about ones health issues is not anxiety. Swimming more than your usual, means you crossed your usual physical limits, that is natural to create strain on your physical health. I think rest and relaxation should bring you relief. About your capacities, physical I assume, being less as compared to people of your age ma need some evaluation. Consult your physician for an assessment.

PhD Human Genetics
Sexologist,
I am having a low sperm count and I want to increase my sperm count so pls suggest me some medicine or any treatment?
Yes, there are medicines that can improve the semen quality (sperm count, motility, morphology and seminal fluid properties). Please fix up a paid appointment and upload your recent two semen analysis reports and any hormone, doppler studies that are done till date. I will ask for more information and reports upon consultation and then suggest suitable means to improve semen parameters. And, please try to lose some weight, because it may have some bearing on the semen parameters.

Cheek rashes may e associated with staph infection. Thus nail rubbing increases chances of infection. Better to use calamine lotion preparation if noinfection and wash face two three times with dettol or lifebouy soap. It will help to heal.

lybrate-user, When glucose level goes too low (hypoglycemia), then there is counter regulatory mechanism activated in the body. This leads to release of a hormone Glucagon from alpha cells in the pancreas. That hormone causes breakdown of glycogen in the liver, producing glucose, which in turn increases blood glucose. Body can not tolerate low glucose state for long time. Hence, this counter regulatory mechanism is activated. Thanks.
