Why You Should Swap Your Jeans And Vest For A Lungi?

Why You Should Swap Your Jeans And Vest For A Lungi?

The clothes we wear are often dictated by fashion and with our desire to conform with the latest cultural trends around the world. However, from a health perspective, the most important consideration of how you dress should be based primarily on local weather conditions. So it is perfectly ok to pull out your parkas, mittens, scarfs, stockings and jeans if you are located in a chilly and snowy location. In hot and humid India, it makes much more sense to wear light, breezy, thin clothes like dhotis, salwars, skirts, shorts or lungis. You can land up with painful and dangerous medical conditions with clothes unsuitable to your climate. Here's how your clothing could be harming you: 

  1. Increased heat rashes or miliaria. Your vest could be the culprit!: A very common skin condition seen in hot and humid weather conditions is called “miliaria” and is caused by blocked sweat ducts. Thick, tight clothes hamper normal evaporation of sweat into the atmosphere and cause this kind of irritable heat rash. Simple physics dictates that any extra or double layer of cloth, like a vest, would further hamper evaporation and aggravate these rashes. While vests may save your overlying shirt from getting damp, they are certainly bad news for your underlying skin which has to carry the unevaporated sweat on its surface. 
  2. Increased chances of fungal and bacterial infections. Ditch the Denim!: The hot and humid environment within slim-fitting, thick clothes creates ideal conditions for fungi and bacteria to proliferate. Itchy, red rashes like ringworm appear in the groins, underarms and other parts of the skin. Painful boils and itchy, pus-filled folliculitis are common and often require surgery. This kind of dangerous environment is easily created within the skin-hugging denims you see so many people wearing all around you. 
  3. Bacterial and fungal resistance to antimicrobials: Your dermatologist will treat your infections with appropriate antibiotics or antifungals. Unfortunately, in this era of global warming, many patients fail to respond and are tortured by recurrent, severe infections in spite of adequate dosing of medicines. One major reason is clothing and fashion which does not match the environment, creating ideal conditions for resistant, harmful bugs to multiply. You should choose lighter, airier, non-synthetic clothes that let your skin ‘breathe’ and does not allow sweat, dirt and deadly bugs to stick to your skin. 
  4. Increased chances of urinary and genital infections: Tight, synthetic undergarments are thought to increase chances of genital and urinary infections. Tight and ill-fitting underwear can also cause discomfort, soreness and chafing by repeated friction. 
  5. Body Odor: Body odor can be embarrassing and is aggravated by full-sleeved shirts, long undergarments, tight leggings, stockings and skinny jeans. 
  6. Allergic dermatitis: Many individuals develop allergic rashes with certain common items like jewellery, footwear, earrings, cloth dyes, wristwatches and metallic buttons. A combination of heat, sweat and dissolved allergens precipitates these rashes in predisposed individuals. 
  7. Environmental damage! Use minimum clothes: You definitely need to cover your skin, but are you cluttering your wardrobe with clothes that you keep on purchasing and hardly ever use? The apparel industry exploits huge amounts of natural resources like water, plant products, petroleum products, chemicals and electricity. You yourself require quite a bit of water, laundry detergents, and electricity just to maintain your clothes. Is it worth the environmental cost to purchase and maintain clothes that you will hardly ever use?

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Colposcopy - When & Why Do You Need It?

Colposcopy - When & Why Do You Need It?

Colposcopy is a medical diagnostic procedure that your doctor uses to have a good and clear look at your cervix. The word has been derived from the Greek work "kolpos" meaning "hollow, womb or vagina" and "skopos" meaning "look at." The diagnosis is performed with the help of an instrument called "colposcope" that helps the doctor to get to the minutest details of your cervix, vagina, and vulva that are easily missed by the naked eye.

When and why do you need Colposcopy?
Your doctor decides when you need to opt for colposcopy. Usually, abnormal Pap Test results are the chief reason behind colposcopy. Other causes include abnormal looks of your cervix during a pelvic exam and positive HPV test results etc. Sometimes if you experience unexplained bleeding problems, your doctor might suggest you opt for the procedure.

Colposcopy allows your doctor to identify any abnormalities in your genital area clearly. It helps your doctor to collect tissue samples and fluid samples from the region as well. The doctor can easily distinguish between a normal looking vagina and a vagina with any abnormalities. The sole purpose of colposcopy is to determine what is causing the abnormal Pap test or an abnormal cervical region so that you get the proper treatment.

How is it done and what should be the preparations from your side?
Colposcopy is an extremely safe and hassle free diagnostic procedure. After lying on their back, one has to keep their legs spread as the doctor uses a speculum to keep your vagina open for her to examine. Next, the doctor uses a cotton swab dipped in a vinegar-like solution to clean the internals, which might give a slight burning sensation at first but helps the doctor to identify the abnormal cells and blood vessels accurately. After that, she uses the colposcope to have an illuminated and magnified look at your cervix and vulva.

There are a few things that you should follow from your side, like, do let the doctor know if you have heavy flow amidst your period days, not using any creams or gels before the procedure and avoiding sexual intercourse for the time being. It is also important to let your doctor know whether you are pregnant or not.

Results and after-effects of Colposcopy
The results of your colposcopy determine whether if you have dysplasia which is highly curable in the early stages, or if you have any sorts of genital tissue or blood vessel related infections or not, which your doctor looks into for treatment. If any occurrences like high fever, extended vaginal bleeding, a viscous and stinky vaginal discharge yellowish in color, severe lower abdominal pain, start appearing after your colposcopy report to your doctor as soon as possible.

The Top Things To Know About Delivering A Child!

The Top Things To Know About Delivering A Child!

Pregnancy is one of the most exciting and anxious phase in a woman’s life. There is definitely an information overload from all sources i.e. family, friends, medical team, books, Internet, etc., that is dumped on the mother-to-be. The idea is to prepare her for the delivery. What needs to be borne in mind though is that each delivery is unique and there are no two women who have had the exact same experience.

However, it is good for the mother to know what to expect so that she is mentally prepared and not totally caught unawares when the actual scenes unfold. The following are the sequence of events that she should be aware of and watch out for:

  1. With the due date nearing, she should keep a watch for the water breaking. This is passing of fluid surrounding the baby and is usually colorless and odorless. However, if it is green or brown, it is an indication that something might be wrong. Immediate medical help should be sought in that case.
  2. Along with water breaking, contractions is the next thing to watch out for. This is due to the tightening and releasing of the uterus, indicating that the baby has begun to descend down towards the cervix. If these last for up to a minute, occur every five minutes, and persist for up to an hour, it is a clear indication that it is delivery time and you must head to the hospital.
  3. Two sensations very prominent during delivery are pain and pressure. The pressure is from the baby passing down the birth canal. As the cervix and the vaginal canal expand to allow passage of the baby, there would be a great deal of pain and pressure. It is not just the mother, even the baby exerts significant pressure to come out of the womb during labor.
  4. The process of the baby getting out of the womb is what is medically termed as labor and has three distinct stages to it:
    • The first stage has two parts to it i.e. an initial, gradual phase that may last for a few hours and a later, quicker phase. The rate of progress of delivery is steady.
    • The second stage usually lasts for about two hours, during which the cervix is minimally dilated and pushing begins. This stage lasts until the baby is out of the womb.
    • The third and the last stage is where the placenta is extracted and the umbilical cord is cut.

Some common problems you may expect include injury or tearing of the vagina or cervix, need for episiotomy, vomiting, passing of motion, anesthetic complications, etc. However, what would remain etched in the mother’s memory would be the first sight of the baby. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I'm a breast feeding mom all of suddenly I got fever and cold, doc suggested not to feed baby until I get cured, but unfortunately the milk left over in my breast is paining a lot pls give me Solution urgent I can't handle this pain.

General Physician,
There is no rationale in asking you not to feed. If airborne the infection may/or will spread as you obviously handle a baby. Absolutely no need to stop feeding. Keep on feeding and do not deny baby his nutrition. This will relieve pain and baby gets feed as well.
