Hey doctor. How are you? I want to ask you that I had been suffering from chicken pox and now am totally fine. But my chicken pox marks are still there on my face. So can you just tell me name of any cream or something so that I get rid of my chicken pox marks. Thank you. Have a nice day.

Chicken pox marks require time and patience to fade off. Apply nuteg paste in milk just the way chandan paste is made by rubbing and apply it on the scars at bed time. To analyse the results take a closeup photograph in similar lighting condition after a month. Deeper ones might take more than 4 months of patience.

What is Masturbation?

Masturbation is the self-stimulation of the genitals to achieve sexual arousal and pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm (sexual climax). It is commonly done by touching, stroking, or massaging the penis until an orgasm is achieved

Is Masturbation Normal?

While it once was regarded as a perversion and a sign of a mental problem, Masturbation now is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity that is pleasant, fulfilling, acceptable and safe. It is a good way to experience sexual pleasure and can be done throughout life.

Masturbation is only considered a problem when it inhibits sexual activity with a partner, is done in public, or causes significant distress to the person. It may cause distress if it is done compulsively and/or interferes with daily life and activities.

In addition to feeling good, Masturbation is a good way of relieving the sexual tension that can build up over time, especially for people without partners or whose partners are not willing or available for sex.

Is Masturbation Harmful?

Masturbation has been part of the daily life for some people. Although Masturbating itself is not a bad thing to do, but the addiction gives lots of bad impact to one’s life. When someone Masturbate more than once a day or more than three times in a week or he doing that daily, then it could be classified that person is addicted to Masturbation. You will feel more satisfied with your self-service sexual needs than with your spouse. Moreover, the mental bound between you and your mate will be no longer tight and everything could fall down like the domino effect afterwards.

Side Effect of Excessive Masturbation

The main problems are of mental imbalances. Men who Masturbate too frequently will develop an addiction-like attraction for the habit. They will not be able to spend a single day without Masturbation, and will probably want to have a go at it whenever they can afford. The result is that, the person is not able to focus on work, which naturally suffers. Over Masturbation can also make a person sluggish in society, a slow learner and a person who is so wrapped up in his addiction for Masturbation that he does not show any kind of progress.

A very shocking side-effect is that people who Masturbate a lot develop such a strong affinity to the habit that they do not get the same kind of arousal through normal heterosexual intercourse. This, if anything, will affect the reproductive capability of a person.

Excessive Masturbation causes weak Erection and leads to Premature Ejaculation.

Excessive Masturbation also causes Seman Leakage and then it leads to overall weakness of a person and if the problem is not treated then it leads to Impotence.

Besides weakness it also causes other health problems like stress,fatique,memory loss,headache,blurred vision,hair loss, liver dysfunction etc

Am I Addicted?

The defining characteristic of any addiction is that it interferes with one major area in your life and that you are unable to stop despite strong efforts to do so. Some common symptoms that you may be addicted to masturbation include:

Seeking out increasingly graphic, extreme or violent pornography
Feeling ashamed of your masturbation habits
Having trouble in a relationship because of masturbation
Having trouble with sexual arousal or in-person sexual interactions because masturbation is easier or more pleasurable
Masturbating in inappropriate locations such as at work, in the car or in public
Legal trouble because of masturbation or other sexual behaviors
Difficulty with time management
Feelings of frustration, anger, sadness or depression when you can’t masturbate
Trouble spending time with your children, enjoying your hobbies in other tasks you previously enjoyed
If you think you might be addicted to masturbation, don’t despair. Hope is available, so contact us.

Dear doctor. I have sleeping disorder. No matter how much ever I try but I do not get sleep at all. Most of my days and nights goes sleepless. In a day with great difficulty I may manage to get sleep for only 2-3 hours. I am married since 8 months but I am totally ignored by my husband. My husband has even left me to stay with my mother and has no intention to take me back. He comes to meet us every week. But we never spend time together. This attitude of his is putting me in a depression. Whole day and night I keep crying and sulking about it. He doesn't even allow me to work. I don't have any idea what to do? Sometimes I feel like quiting my life. I tried speaking to my husband about this issue many times but he doesn't find this topic important and gives me deaf ears treatment. Which is very hurting. And I feel this is the major reason which is pushing me to sleeplessness and depression. Kindly advise what should I do?

Dear, you may think of your husband's behaviour as the reason for your sleeplessness and depression. Probably you need to think what had made him to behave that way. If it is something in you, you have to try to correct it. If it is not due to your behaviour, then you should plan your future with such a husband. What will he do, if you go for a job? in what way he is going to prevent you? just think of your life before 8 months. You had some goal and you were working towards it. Please catch up with it now again. Since you are already thinking of quitting your life, it is better that you consult a psychiatrist, get diagnosed and treated. She/he may treat you with antidepressant tablets, electroconvulsive therapy and/or talk therapy. It may take few months - but it is worth. You may have to go to psychiatrist repeatedly to adjust the treatment according to your need. You will back yourself before marriage. Your husband also will see a bubbling lybrate-userinstead of a sulking taniya. Who knows, he may visit you daily and even take you to his place, if he spends happy time with you.

Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also -- soak a washcloth in cool tap water wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase.

You have to switch to a high fibre diet rich in whole grains and green leafy vegetables. A high fiber diet includes more than 25 g of fiber per day. Addition of fiber supplements to already existing diet is a good plan. Stool softeners can be taken to soften stools if there is hard stools which can cause undue straining while going to toilet. Adequate water intake. Adequate amounts of water can ease the passage of stools.

Dear Shrividya, Welcome to lybrate. Stammering is "speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or "say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses". Stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is Vocal cord misalignment. Second is Psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ENT Specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ENT specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, You should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

Hello, it is difficult give an opinion from a distance regarding such acute conditions. However, if bp is near normal and blood glucose also in good contro, then by giving adequate fluid intake electrolytes can be managed. Same is the case with urea and creatinine. Best is to abide by the on the spot clinical expert, who can be the best judge. It may best to shift to a better equipped hospital as in bangalore.
