My face had very much pimples from past 10 years and still occurs erratically. There are marks on my face and black heads on nose which are filled with yellow oil beeds and dirt. Both kind of pimples occur on my face the small yellow ones and the big ones of half inches too. I have used medicines like acnestar gel but the scenario is same as I discontinue the medicine. Also someone has adviced me chemical peeling and dermaroller procedures. Please help me to figure out the best?

Homeopathic medicines can address your issue. There is production of sebum from the oil glands and this clogs the pore of face. Also there is hormonal changes happening in body and all these lead to pimples at your age. Be patient in dealing with this. Do not peel or pinch the pimple. Wash your face frequently with a good face fash, you can use any herbal face wash. Make a paste of gram flour and apply on your face, keep it for 20 minutes and scrub and wash with cold water. Do this once a day before retiring to bed. This will remove the excess oil and remove the dead skin. See a good homeopathic doctor for constitutional treatment which will reduce the tendency to have pimples, reduce the sebum secretion and also improve your health.

Slight curve is normal. If the curve is excessive, causes pain or erection problem, then only it is abnormal.

This is probably sleep apnoea. You need to sleep on your sides (sideward) & quit smoking if you are a smoker. Keep physically fit by exercising regularly.

Hi, since you are diabetic use whole grains and complex carbs and essential fatty aacids like omega-3. Below are some tips for weight gain. If you want to gain weight, you need to combine a balanced eating pattern with regular physical activity. You should be eating at least 6 small meals a day, rather than sticking to 3 square meals. You could divide it as 3 main meals and 3 snacks. You need to be eating every 2-3 hours. Space out snacks during the day so you don't spoil your appetite. Bread, cereal, rice, whole wheat, dalia and pasta: biscuits, and corn-bread are good sources of carbohydrates. Fruits: dried fruits, fruit nectars, and large quantities of fresh fruits vegetables: include, potatoes, peas, corn in your diet. Meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts: beef, pork, lamb, poultry, salmon, omelets, nuts, peanut butter, kidney beans, chickpeas will help you gain weight. Include dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese: milk, fruited yogurts, hard cheeses, ice cream, puddings, custards, milkshakes. -nuts and seeds make a healthy option for snacks. -roasted channas and peanuts are good -peanut butter on the sandwiches are a great mid-meal choice. -you must know that cereals actually contain some healthy calories. Stay hydrated: drinking plenty of water and other fluids like juices, milk, soups etc, will work in your favour. Do not drink water before a meal and in between the meal as it may make you lose your appetite, thus calorie intake suffers. Sleep: at least 8 hours of sound sleep is a must. Since your body is actually building up muscles, while you rest.

Dear user if you have undergone any pathological test recently then kindly update. A fever last more than a months time is of no good prognosis. For now you need to use arnica 6 once daily and ferrum phos 3x - 4 tabs twice daily and update with reports.

I am suffering from fever for 2 days. I'm feeling very tired and pain in my body. What should I do?
Hi, it is normal to have some weakness and body pain while during fever and also post remission of fever. For a speedier recovery, however, I would advise you to have a healthy yet light diet and take fruits/ juices and drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water daily. It is advisable to remain on a fruits only diet, exclusively, for a day or two to begin with. You may take a glass warm milk to which a pinch of fresh turmeric powder and black pepper powder are added. This can provide relief from fever, pains and cough, if any. Then after, gradually you can embark on a balanced diet with due emphasis on fresh fruits/ light cooked green leafy vegetables. Getting enough rest and relaxation are also key to a faster recovery, apart from the ones mentioned above. At the same time, do regularize your lifestyle too. Hope this helps. All the very best & take care.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - Can STDs be the Reason Behind it?

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MRCOG

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - Can STDs be the Reason Behind it?

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, also known as PID, is characterized by an infection that occurs in a lady's reproductive organs. Usually this occurs as a result of a complications arising from a STD. The disease causes severe damage to the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the uterus. It is one of the bigger causes of infertility in women. 

Causes-

The cervix which is the entry to the uterus has the function of stopping bacteria that are present in the vagina from spreading to the other organs. Once infected by a STD, the cervix can no longer perform its function of preventing the bacteria from spreading to other organs. PID develops when the infection spreads from the cervix to the upper areas of the genital tract. 

There are certain factors which increase the chances of being affected by PID: 

  1. Being sexually active 
  2. Already affected by STDs such as gonorrhea 
  3. Past history of PID 
  4. Having multiple sexual partners 

Symptoms-

Women may experience pain while urinating and engaging in sexual intercourse, coupled with sore feeling in the stomach along with nausea. Abnormal vaginal discharge and a rise in body temperature are common symptoms as well. 

Treatment-
Once the disease has been diagnosed by a doctor, a treatment plan is devised. The treatment options that you can avail of are: 

  1. Medications: If the symptoms are mild, then the doctor will prescribe antibiotic medications. Usually the antibiotics are administered by mouth unless the symptoms are severe, when the drugs are administered intravenously. Your partner would also require medications if you happen to be diagnosed with PID, so that he/she does not catch it. 
  2. Surgery: Surgery is recommended by the doctor in case of tissue inflammation and the presence of pus (abscess). The aim of surgery is to get rid of the abscess to prevent any further infection. 

In addition to the treatment methods, there are certain precautionary measures that you can adopt to be safe: 

  1. Have protected sex.
  2. Try and stick to one sexual partner.
  3. Visit your gynecologist for regular checkups.

Hye thanks for the query. If you are following a nutritious well planned diabetic diet then adding a vegetable soup to your meals or as a snack is fine. See to it that soup does not replace a meal. Restriction of diet or excessive carbohydrates restriction will cause more fat gain rather than loss.

My age is 35 years I have problem of erectile dysfunction. so what to do can I take sildanafil 25mg per day.
The drug can give you serious side effects especially if you have hypertension or other diseases. Erectile dysfunction can often be improved by making changes to your lifestyle, such as: • losing weight if you are overweight • giving up smoking • cutting back your alcohol consumption • not taking illegal drugs • exercising regularly • reducing stress Try Kegel exercises This is a great way of strengthening your pelvic muscles and gain strength for sex. It is like going to the gym, but for sex.

Having sexual intercourse by paying money is demeaning and you will not be satisfied. The risk of contracting a serious STD like HIV, Syphilis etc is always there. Try to get a gf with whom you can have a steady relationship.
