HI Bharat, No, there is no natural way to cure a ranula. Ranula is a type of mucocele present on the floor of the mouth. It is present due to the collection of mucin from ruptured salivary gland caused by local trauma. Its best treatment is surgical removal.

Causes and Prevention of Smelly Feet

Dermatology Backed Expert Skin & Hair Care Solution
Dermatologist, Nashik
Causes and Prevention of Smelly Feet

Smelly feet - the medical name is bromodosis - can affect anyone. It can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. The main cause is sweaty feet and there are simple steps you can take to help prevent this.

What causes sweaty and smelly feet?

The function of sweat glands is to keep the skin moist and therefore supple, and to regulate temperature when the weather is hot or while you are exercising. There are more sweat glands in our feet than anywhere else in the body. However, unlike sweat glands elsewhere in the body, the sweat glands in the feet secrete all the time, not just in response to heat or exercise.

Feet smell when bacteria on the skin break down sweat as it comes from the pores. A cheesy smell is released as the sweat decomposes.

The main causes of sweaty and smelly feet are:

  1. Wearing the same shoes every day. Feet become smelly if sweat soaks into the shoes and you wear them again before they are dry.
  2. Poor personal hygiene.
  3. Hormonal changes can cause feet to sweat more, so teenagers and pregnant women are especially prone.
  4. If you are stressed.
  5. A condition called hyperhidrosis, which causes you to sweat more than usual.

Not letting sweat accumulate inside your shoes is the most logical way of preventing smelly feet.

Preventing smelly feet

The best way to prevent smelly feet is good personal hygiene and not wearing the same shoes 2 days in a row. It's important to wash your feet every day and dry them thoroughly, especially between the toes. Teenagers especially should be discouraged from wearing the same pair of trainers all the time. You should also wear clean socks every day. Cotton or wool socks are much better than nylon.

If you're particularly prone to sweaty feet, you could:

  1. Use a spray deodorant or antiperspirant on your feet. A normal underarm one will work just as well as a specialist foot product.
  2. When you have dried your feet with a towel after a shower or bath, dab between your toes with cotton wool dipped in surgical spirit.
  3. Put detachable medicated insoles in your shoes. These have a deodorizing effect.
  4. Try foot-fresh socks. These are impregnated with chemicals to discourage the bacteria that break down the sweat and cause a smell. Some sports socks have ventilating panels to help keep feet dry.
  5. Wear leather or canvas shoes. In the summer, wear open-toed sandals. Go barefoot at home if you can safely.
  6. Sweaty feet can be treated with an antibacterial foot scrub, but avoid using these scrubs if you have broken skin or eczema.

These steps to prevent sweaty and smelly feet will usually help. If they don't, or you are worried about how much you sweat, seek medical advice.

Athlete's foot can also cause your feet to smell. You can treat this yourself with antifungal treatment available from a pharmacy. Seek medical advice if you're concerned or if the problem is not clearing up.

Migraine needs to be treated medically. You may take green liquor tea with honey once or twice daily. Avoid coffee and other teas. Avoid all kinds of dairy products, yogurt, chocolate, eggs, citrus fruits, meats, cereals as wheat (bread, pasta, etc.), nuts and peanuts, tomatoes, onions, corn, apples, peaches and bananas. Avoid pickles. Among fruits, you should take cranberries, pears, cherries and pomegranates. Avoid extreme hot and cold conditions. Avoid strong odours, bright lights, smoke or dusts, altitude changes like mountain riding or travelling.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Udupi
Dear Lybrate User, *Avoid hot, spicy foods, fermented foods, white sugar, white flour products, and sour or citrus fruits, because they aggravate the Pitta in your body. *Drink more water and eat more fiber, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. *Avoid excessive sugar or salt, refined foods, animal products (meats and dairy), caffeine, tea, and alcohol, as these items will further lead to aggravation of Pitta. *Avoid direct exposure to the sun, as migraine headaches are predominantly a Pitta disorder and can be triggered by the hot sun. *Head massage with Bhringraj Oil is also beneficial. This massage gives a calming effect to your nervous system. *Headaches caused due to tension and worry can be alleviated through deep breathing and relaxation, especially in a lying down position in a quiet place. Inverted postures, or those where the head is lowered briefly, increase oxygen to the brain and can reduce headache-causing strain.

If creatinine is 7.5 and doctor is suggesting dialysis should we go for dialysis? I have heard if you start dialysis once it will be difficult to stop and each time you have to go for dialysis if creatinine increases to 7. Ankle is swollen and some times vomit happen. I am scared of dialysis. How can you reduce creatinine.

If creatinine is 7.5 and doctor is suggesting dialysis should we go for dialysis? I have heard if you start dialysis ...
Renal failure is two types. Acute: recently, due to some reversible cause creatinine is increased. Chronic: over months to years creatinine is increased and irreversible. In first case (Acute renal failure) kidney damage is temporary and may require few dialysis only. In others case (chronic renal failure): kidney damage is permanent. Regular permanent Dialysis or kidney transplant is the answer. As you have symptoms you need to start dialysis as early as possible and then continuation depends on type of renal failure you have. Your fear is common and We do see many patients and take alternative medicines. They come back to us with much more serious condition and poor outcome. Choice is yours!

Penis enlargement penis-enlarging exercises like jelqing and kegel exercises can be really helpful for strengthening erections. If done properly, they can strengthen the entire pelvic floor and groin region. They can improve blood flow to the groin region and strengthen it. However, it is not clear if they can offer any tangible increase in penis size and length. Homeopathic treatment is safe and effective way to provide permanent cure in 3-4 month of course, if you are willing to take homeopathic treatment, just let me know through private conversation in lybrate. -it help to increasing your penis size - it helps increase your testosterone production and improves blood circulation to the groin, -it help to improving the health of the entire pelvic region.

All about Hypersexuality

All about Hypersexuality

When a person is preoccupied with physical fantasies to the point of dysfunction for at least six months, he or she suffers from hyper sexuality. Hyper sexuality is also known as nymphomania or compulsive sexual behavior. These sexual fantasies are usually combined with a compulsive pursuit of non-intimate or casual sex, excessive masturbation habit, pornography, objective partner sex and romantic intensity.

It is more complex than just having an unusually high sex drive because sexual activity gives the addict an intense feeling of euphoria, suppressing other thoughts which cause distress, self-loathing and shame. This interferes with the daily regimen of activities. Treatment and management of sex addiction is imperative because it is disruptive and harmful not just to you but also to others.It also damages relationships, careers and self-esteem. 

People suffering from hyper sexuality exhibit the following symptoms: 
1. They engage in compulsive masturbation
2. They frequently hire prostitutes
3. Usage of phone sex services excessively
4. They have multiple extramarital affairs
5. They plan out sexual activities excessively
6. They engage in one night stands frequently
7. They are emotionally detached from their sexual partners
8. They prefer unprotected sex
9. They obsess about an unattainable sexual partner
10. They show tendencies of paraphilia

The primary and identifiable causes of hyper sexuality are as follows:
1. Biochemical imbalances in neurotransmitters and nervous system disorders
2. Medical conditions that damage certain parts of the brain of affect brain functioning
3. Overproduction of hormones such as androgens (present in males and females) 
4. Being predisposed to hyper sexuality due to genes 
5. Altered neural pathways
6. Suffering from childhood abuse
7. Dysfunctional family dynamics

Sexual addiction is believed to be a dysfunctional adult response towards emotional or character regulatory deficits and innate personality as well as abuse, early detachment disorders and trauma. Hyper sexuality is a symptom of a lot of mental disorders such as bipolar disorder, adult attention deficit disorder or obsessive compulsive disorder. 

Sex addicts usually do not seek treatment for their addiction until the consequences of their activities are dire and have an overt negative effect on their health, relationships, finances and career. Since addicts feel ashamed and despise themselves, they usually do not seek help until they hit rock bottom. However, it is crucial to treat this disorder in order to lead a happy and fulfilling life where one is not controlled by their addiction.  You can also take the package for having safe sex.

Hyper sexuality can be treated using the following methods:

  1. Psychotherapy
  2. Group Therapy
  3. Family and couples therapy
  4. Support groups
  5. Self-help groups
  6. Medications
    1. Antidepressants
    2. Anti-androgens
    3. Luteinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH)
    4. Mood Stabilizers
    5. Naltrexone

If you wish to discuss about any specific sexual problem, you can consult a specilized sexologist.

Hi, you haven't mentioned about the dates when these abortion has taken place. Do share the reports (if you do have any). The reason can be simple general weakness of the body after abortions. Don't worry, besides having healthy, nutritious and balanced food and enough of rest, take homoeopathic medicines - ignatia 200/ one dose once a day daily; five phos. And alfaalfa tonic - take both 3 times a day daily. Take them for a month and report me.

Suffering from type 2 diabetes and mild blood pressure. Also rheumatic arteritis.Please tell.
Hi I am sure you must be on treatment for all these conditions. It very essential to achieve good glycemic control, otherwise it can lead to various problems (long term complications) associated with diabetes. Even rheumatoid arthritis like diabetes is a disease that can only be controlled. Apart from drugs treatment it is necessary to be physically active to keep healthy and fit. Exercise will also help in reducing blood sugar. Thanks for the question.
