Fsh 64 usually indicates menopause- which is too early for you but can happen. You need detailed investigation to detect the cause of it and then we can proceed further.

I am suffering from fever since last night.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
I am suffering from fever since last night.
Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as one of the body's natural defences against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperatures. Also, the body's defence mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or higher may be dangerous and demand immediate treatments like: -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used for fever in children/ adolescents or during a viral illness. -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress. Overdressing can cause temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -A fever can cause severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami, Amla juice etc. -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food -Wash hands frequently with soap and water especially after returning from public places or public transport. -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

I am type 2 diabetic. How long I will stay healthy if I control deit, with exercise and medication? and how long I may live? I am scared.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
No one can say how long you will stay alive! regarding diabetes, is anyone in family diabetic? ask privately. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (self-monitoring of blood glucose? smbg). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of fasting sugar (fbs) and 2 hours after food (ppbs) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ insulin will be needed. For sugar control there is the need for regular advice and follow up. Just one time consultation or advice is not enough to guide a diabetic in scientifically & medically correct manner. For giving you regular follow up you ask me privately with all details like your daily eating pattern and medicines you take. I assure you a proper guidance. If you keep in touch.

Treating Plantar Warts

MBBS, Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL), DNB (Dermatology), MNAMS
Dermatologist, Delhi
Treating Plantar Warts

Plantar warts are a common occurrence in children, so are palmer warts. These warts are named so according to where they appear in the body. Palmer warts occur on the hands, and plantar warts on the bottom of the foot.

What causes plantar warts and palmer warts?

Plantar warts and palmer warts are caused by a viral infection in the top layer of the skin. The virus strain here is called human papillomavirus or HPV. (Take note that while many strains of the virus exist, those that cause genital warts are different from the ones that cause plantar warts). The resulting warts are non-cancerous growths but are often mistaken to be malignant. In fact, most warts go away in a year or two if you leave them alone without treatment. However, depending on the location they may cause minor pain or irritation. For a self-conscious person, the wart may cause people to shy away from clothes and situations that require their exposure.

How do you identify a plantar wart?
Think of any yesteryear movies where the villains had a distinct look to make them look malicious. Such villains were often planted with a plantar wart! Both plantar and palmer warts are generally small to the size of a small thermocol ball, although some tend to grow bigger. Sometimes, the warts appear in clusters called mosaic warts. Sometimes, a seed like dot appears on the wart as a result of a blood vessel growing into it. Such warts are also called seed warts. Because of the constant pressure from walking and standing, planter warts don't tend to stick about the skin as much as palmer or other warts.

Here are 3 ways to get rid of plantar warts

  1. Try some home remedies: Home remedies described here are quite effective but may take a while before the effects are visible. Also the warts may be painful during the treatment period making it difficult for you to walk. Start by soaking your feet in warm water to soften the wart. Use an isolated nail file or pumice stone to remove the top layer of dead skin. (Make sure you don't reuse the tool for anything else). Next, go for a salicylic acid treatment in the form of liquid, gel or patches. You can also follow this up with a duct tape treatment for 7 days and then remove the duct tape. You can also try freezing the wart with an over the counter medicine like Compound W Freeze Off and Dr. Scholl's Freeze Away. During any home remedy, if the wart starts bleeding, oozes blood or pus or becomes painful you may need an intervention from a medical specialist.
  2. Prevent plantar warts: You get infected with plantar warts through exposure to skin scales that are infected by the virus. Watch for contagious spreading in closed rooms with skin exposures like changing lockers and common showers.
  3. Consult a doctor to try a strong salicylic acid treatment, laser treatment immunotherapy or even surgical options to remove the wart.

I am suffering from flu from 2 days.What can i do?

CCEDM(DIABETES), MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
I am suffering from flu from 2 days.What can i do?
There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. • Do steam inhalation once or twice daily Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily

Please do not compare penis of your son with that of others. This comparison is the root cause of most anxiety which men have about their penis size, and at times, even if the size is normal their anxiety doesnot make the penis get erect to the maximum and this results in erection problems. Having said that, you must understand that puberty is a time when the reproductive organs namely testes, penis and body grow by natural hormonal effects. This will make the penis grow to its' natural maximum length. Each person has a natural inbuilt programming in his DNA which decides the persons height, weight and growth of various organs and its potential can be utilised by good nourishing food and exercise Let the son grow and his body may naturally grow the penis upto its capacity. what you should also understand that "SIZE DOESNOT MATTER" If you are a cricket fan, you must be knowing that in Indian team the players who have the average height and weight score more runs than those who are gifted to be tall or stronger by physique. All this is because of technique. I hope you instill positive attitude in your son and let him grow to his full potential. If the seeds of the thought that "he is inadequate" gets sown in childhood, he will never be at peace with himself , even if nature endows him with the max size. so relax and let your child relax too.

How to control over masturbation? Am having high sex drive. How can I control that? Any solutions?

D.E.H.M, B.E.M.S, M.D.(E.H)
Sexologist, Faridabad
How to control over masturbation? Am having high sex drive. How can I control that? Any solutions?
The habit of masturbation is like an addiction. Once you you have started masturbation, it is difficult to quit. It might seem even impossible. However if you have strong will you can quit this habbit. Again if you are doing masturbation once in a while [like once in two days] you should not be worried about it. But stopping it or minizing the frequencing will be a good thing if you can. To stop the habit of masturbation you must first bear in mind what damages it can bring into your life. It will reduce your genital power. You will feel pain in the back and legs. You would not feel at you 100% all the time. You will keep forgetting things. These effects are more salient at a later age. It will effect your self confidence a lot and you might not be able to talk to girls whome you want to talk. All this is because of masturbation. To quit masturbating lets see where most people would masturbate (or thos people who do it so often that they fall in the problem of premature ejaculation which litteraly destroys their whole life). 1.When you are taking bath 2.When you attend bathroom. 3.Before going to sleep at night (every night) 4.When are feeling board and are alone. You do it to kill boardem. 5.When you have a strong fantasy about sex/someone 6.When you see an attractive girl and are alone in home 7.You see beautiful actress on the TV 8.You see a porn movie and unable to control yourself. I have mentioned the cases in order of more dangereous to less dangerous. Look at item 1, you masturbate because you look youself in the mirror and get excited right away. Since you are naked and in right place to masturbate you can't help not doing it. This is one of the harmful way of masturbating [if you doing it all the time when you are taking bath]. Since it is somewhat unintentional masturbation because you are really taking a bath and should not be masturbating, it is really bad. Many people, in their teenage, would take bath just because they get a chance to masturbate. I remember I was not very regular in bath and when I discroved it, I used to take bath willingly. You should try to control over it slowly. Do not masturbate all the time when you are taking bath. Do it only if you are really feeling aroused enough to do it. The second reason is when you attend a bathroom. This is the place where you see yourself naked, getting bored / or sexually excited and go for masturbation. You should not masturbate when you attend bathroom. The reason is you attend bathroom every day which means you will masturbate every day! Masturbating before going to bad is another common type of masturbation. You simply are bored (can'g get sleep) and you masturbate. As soon as you masturbate you fall asleep easily. This also shows the physical effects of maturbation. You are relieved of all tension and your mind becomes free of thoughts. Your body becomes relaxed and somewhat exhausted and you easily fall asleep. Note that a good way to sleep is to free you mind of any thoughts esp sexual thoughts! They keep you aroused and you never get to sleep! The remaining points are also important but not as much as the above three. Because the above three are the most common types of masturbations. Masturbating on sexual fantasies is also a common source of masturbating. You need to lower the frequency of masturbation on fantasies by getting involved in other things. Controlling by Food Food plays vital role in your body metabolism (Metabolism is the breaking down of your food to give you energy). If you eat rich food, your metabolism rate will increase giving you higher energy level. They higher engergies level will get you sexually more excited and you are more likely to masturbate if you eat hot and spicy food rather not non-spicy food. The food is paramount when it comes to controlling your habit of masturbation. Without know what is hot and what is not, it may be difficult for you to control the habit of masturbation. If you are already having a premature-ejaculation problem and want to control masturbation, you are definely required not to eat spicy food. I will provide a list of spicy food in near future. The most basic hot food is eggs. You should avoid it if you are feeling strong urge for masturbation or trying to quit it Other Techniques There are some other way to quite the habit of masturbation. I will mention each of them in separate paragraphs. Change your place: If you are used to masturbating in certain places, just change that place. Avoid going to that places. Like if you have bahroom where you masturbate more likely avoid going to it. If you masturbate all the time when you are sleeping alone in your room, try sleeping with someones else room. Use your relegios beliefs to keep yourself away from masturabation. For example is Islam masturbation is prohibited [ allowed only if there is a strong urge for that]. There might be similar believes in other relegions. Try seraching in 'www.google.com' to find out more information. If you are masturbating with right hand, switch to left hand. You will get a reduced joy and gradually stop masturbating. Avoid seeing pron movies. Porn movies only excites you more. There is not reason to watch porn movies. It distracts you from your studies. Never risk your moral values. Keep yourself busy This is a really good way to avoid masturbation. As a common quote'empty brain is home fo setan' mean that when you have to do nothing you are thinking about wild ideas. When ever you feel bored, do something contructive: give time to stuy or talk to a friend or your mother or father. Read a good newspaper. Watch TV or take some time and go out for palying, for a walk or visit a friend. All these things which might mean nothing keep you busy and it is a good way of spending your life On aspect of masturbating that I would like to metion here is that when you masturbate only with one hand, your penis is getting used to it and it bents in the direction opposite to the hand you are using. This is because you are using same type of unbalances pressure on your penis which causes it to bend. Masturbating with both hand will come over tha problem too. I hope that the information is of some help to you.
