Gums with sugar should be avoided. Sugar-free chewing gums are non-harmful. Some may claim that it helps fight activities however no scientific evidence exists. Also, not all sugar-free gums are good. Be aware that non-sugar sweeteners sometimes cause bloating, diarrhea or flatulence. So your decision lies in what suits your body. If you don't have such side effects and you are addicted to it, then go for it. Better avoid gums if you can. Chew neem sticks instead.

Please take a dose of acid phos 1 m single dose and revert after 2 weeks. Lifestyle changes 1. Along with a healthy hair diet it is important that you exercise properly as it will ensure that there is proper blood flow to your scalp and will help in the growth of hair. 2. Treat your hair delicately. Avoid unnecessary brushing, combing or handling. Use a soft, round bristles brush. 3. Have a weekly scalp massage to provide stimulation to the hair follicles. 4. Have regular trims to eliminate split ends and allow the hair to look and feel healthier. 5. Get plenty of rest and sleep to allow your body to grow hair.

There is a possibility that consuming a large no. of medicines can dry up your mouth. Consider increasing your fluid intake or using an artifical saliva product or chewing a sugarless gum after a meal so as to keep your mouth from dryness and generate moisture.

You do not need any medicine for this, its just either the hearing aid programming not done properly or hearing aid fitting problem. Get it checked.

Hi consult a speech therapist near by you. Go through the complete speech and language evaluation. Then and only your speech therapist can guide you what to do for your baby. If he is suffering from any associated disorder with speech delay (means speech language development is not age appropriate) then go through speech therapy, it will definitely help him.

Looks like you have oesophagitis, gastric ulcer or acid peptic dyspepsia, I would advise healthy life style, regularity of food, avoid spicy fried food intake. Avoid medicines causing acidity, tobacco, alcohol. If above medications taken for 4 - 6 weeks continuously does not help. You may require investigations like upper gi endoscopy, ultrasound abdomen etc. See a consulting gastoenterologist.

you must get yourself an pure tone audiometry test done along with an bp monitoring done. If there is conductive hearing loss you will need medicines but if you have sensory hearing loss you will need a hearing aid.

Hello dear according to your symptoms you have got ear infection as well as tinnitus (ringing sensation in ear) which causes hearing loss. Get checked up with ent for ear infection and audiologist for hearing loss.

Presently my age is 55 years and my left ear was undergone surgery for the same problem in the year : 1982 (33 years ago). Surgery success and hearing developed a lot. But subsequently, my left ear was also reduced the hearing. Presently, using hearing aid for left ear. Right ear is totally hearing loss now. Please suggest me - whether I can undergo any surgery for my right ear.

Hi, Thank you for the question. You have not mentioned why did you undergo for surgery for your left ear. I hope you had middle ear infection (ear discharge, ear pain, reduced hearing, ringing sound, ear blocked, etc.) for which you might have undergone surgery. If middle ear infection is present in your right ear too then depend on the severity you might have to undergo surgery. Kindly visit to a professional "Audiologist" for further detail Audiological evaluation (hearing testing). Depend on your current audiological report Audiologist would recommend you to go for digital hearing aid or surgery. Regard Surender Gupta Audiologist and Speech Language Pathologist

Do you see yourself get angry often? Well, the good news is that anger is a normal emotion like any other emotion. But mismanaged anger can be very detrimental to your health, relationships, decision making and clear thinking capacity. Anger is a secondary emotion, hiding many primary emotions like fear, embarrassment, hurt, rejection, irritation. Try to identify your primary feeling and use that to explain yourself rather than expressing your anger and see your relationships blooming and health improving. Have a great day!

Treatment for congenital deaf mutism needs to be done during early childhood. Unfortunately nothing much can be done at the age of 22 if your brother is having complete deafness.
