Hi, not to worry about! do consult your gynaecologist and dermatologist to show them your finger immediately as they may recommend you an injection of tetanus toxoid to be taken within 24 hrs. Of burn, so better without wasting time, visit them. Your finger has got burnt, apply homoeopathic ointment - topi can notharis over the affected are 2-3 times a day and take orally (very safe to take during pregnancy or breast-feeding) - arnica 30/ 3 times a day for a week.

I am 20 years old. My periods are late 6 days and I am having white stretchy discharge. I am worried.
Menses can get delayed by hormonal changes or stress or weight gain. Wait for another 15 days. As sticky or stretchy discharge is there means that menses r round the corner. If happened for the first time then no need of any tests or treatment. Thais sticky discharge is nothing but the cervical mucus which gets expelled just before the menses.

It appears the submucosal fibroid is creating problems. You should consider a hysteroscopy which is a minor surgery to assess the uterine cavity and the nature of the fibroid. This should be combined with a endometrial biopsy and resection of fibroid if possible.

Intestinal Worms – A silent Disease " You may be carrying one"

DCH, MBBS (MAMC)
Pediatrician, Delhi
Intestinal Worms – A silent Disease " You may be carrying one"
• Worm infestation is one of the common problems not only in children but also in adults. They are major cause of childhood anemia and malnutrition, which leads to growth retardation, cognitive impairment, and poor academic performance.
• Worm infections are more prevalent among school children aged 5-14 years. They are seen in about 50% in urban and 68% in rural school children.
• Children are carrying worms in their intestine without their knowledge. Worms stick to intestine and keep on sucking blood and other nutrition. There are many types of worm like roundworm, thread worm, pin worm, hook worm etc. which can cause infection.
• Severity of infection depends on worm burden. A large majority of cases are asymptomatic. Infection is first identified when parents notice worms in stool .
• They can cause serious complication like Intestinal obstruction, liver disease, Pneumonia and even brain infections.

How we get worm infection?

• When people defecate in the open, millions of roundworm eggs are deposited in the soil or environment. They cans be carried around freely by dust, wind and rain.
• The infective eggs enter into the human body when we swallow or ingest fecal contaminated water or food. Or we pass onto food by infected hands, dirt under the nails, cups and plates.
• A child playing in a compound picks up infective eggs through dirty hands or play objects.
• Dirty human feet and animals walking in and out of houses bring the roundworm eggs into the home, and thus contaminate the home environment.
• In addition, flies, cockroaches and rats are also common vehicles that carry the roundworm eggs into the home where they infect humans.
• swimming in polluted rivers, eating without washing hands, geophagy (eating soil), eating unwashed fruits and vegetables.

In endemic areas eggs contaminate numerous domestic and public sites, including the following-

• Chopping boards • Coins• Door handles • Dust• Fingers• Fingernail dirt• Fruits and Vegetables
• Furniture • Paper money• Pickles• Public baths and restrooms• Public transportation (eg, buses)
• School rooms• Wash basins

How to prevent it?

• People need to adopt good hygiene habits by washing both hands properly with soap before eating or feeding children and after defecation.
• Wash vegetables thoroughly, especially when eating them raw.
• Cook food and vegetables properly to destroy the worm eggs.

• Hygiene and health education of school children is the most important activity to motivate children to change their behaviors and to take home the good hygiene habits.
• They can be shown photos of worm’s diseases, so that they can be easily persuaded to follow good hygienic habits.

How to identify worm infection?

• 85 % of patients are asymptomatic so it remains undiagnosed.
• Stool microscopic examination, for worms egg is a simple and cheap method of diagnosis .
• If the child is looking anemic, malnourished, weak, stomach pain or having anal itching, get his stool test done.

Treatment –
• Worm Infection can be easily cured. We have very good medicines available for worm infections.
• Consult your pediatrician for medication advice.
• But medication does not prevent re-infection.
• So the main treatment is, Prevention through Education of children and parents about importance of good hygiene.

Diet for Weight Loss and Weight Gain

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Diet for Weight Loss and Weight Gain

Being overweight or obese leads to many health problems and thus, controlling your diet to reduce fat and weight can help you get your life back. However, one the other side of the spectrum, being too skinny can also be unhealthy. You could also be clinically of a proper weight, but might want to put on some muscle. Diets for both the sides will thus vary greatly.

Diet for weight loss:

  1. Include more of dark leafy vegetables in your diet: These vegetables are store houses of many important nutrients, such as vitamins, proteins, fibers and antioxidants and also contain no fats.
  2. Cereals and grains: It is important that we replace refined flour and fried foods, such as parathas or poori and replace them with whole healthy grains. Some examples of these grains are whole wheat bread, brown rice, rotis and oats.
  3. Lean meats: Certain forms of meat, which have been prepared without too much oil and spice are good as weight loss diet ingredients. Chicken, turkey, sweet-water fish among others are good choices.
  4. Fruits: Fruits are also a good option as they have natural sugar within them and can provide a boost of energy without requiring processed sugars. Melons, Oranges, berries, guavas are all good examples as they also help in regulating body functions.

Diets for weight gain:

  1. Peanuts: This ingredient is a good source of protein and unsaturated fats, which will help you build muscle and put on some extra weight. If you are working out at the gym to gain muscles peanuts can provide you with the required calories and protein to put on weight.
  2. Bananas: This fruit is not only a source of potassium, but also a source of good sugar which can easily be converted into energy within the body and can help build muscles and thus enable you to put on weight the healthy way.
  3. Eggs: Eggs, especially egg yolk is known to be rich in protein and fats and can help you gain weight quickly. However, it is advised not to eat multiple eggs and limit its consumption to three or four eggs weekly as it can contribute to bad cholesterol within the body.
  4. Chocolate: Some amount of chocolate in your food also helps you to put on weight although excessive consumption may lead to elevated blood sugar levels. However, chocolates in moderation and regularity will help you put on weight healthily.

Yes lybrate-user! by doing your internal checkup your doctor can know if you've had a previous vaginal delivery. Or if you've had a c-section then your scar can be seen on abdominal examination. Otherwise there are no tests.

My wife had done normal episiotomy delivery before 1 mnth. Nd the suture is absorb properly. Is there can we have sex?

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Yes absolutely. Once stitches of episiotomy have healed, you can have sex very safely. Little bit of reddish discharge is possible to occur, however nothing much to worry about it. It will go away gradually. In case it's painful to your partner, you can use Lignocaine jelly for lubrication. No additional care needs for this.
