It could be due to fungal infection. 1. Apply panderm plus ointment twice daily for (1-2 week) 2.. Take one tablet of levocetrizine(5mg) at bed time if itching is severe 3.Thoroughly dry the area after taking bath and keep it dry and sweat free.

My 5 year old daughter has asthma. What the effect of using an asthma preventer long - term? I heard that using it for years might cause bone shrinkage. Is it true?

MD - Pulmonary Medicine
Pulmonologist, Khammam
Hi. Prevention n avoidance of triggers play the most important role in asthma management. Novel medications are available now for asthma are inhalers. Regular usage of these keeps your asthma in control. Side effects are negligible compared to oral pills. Bcause they are a part of targeted therapy. Work at the site of disease with out altering other systems. Thanq.

The initial choice of treatment is a steroid ointment that is locally applied. (This can be suggested by a doctor after you are examined in person.)The ointment softens the foreskin and is applied for up to 6 weeks. When full retraction is possible the ointment is stopped. If this treatment is unsuccessful, a circumcision (surgical removal of foreskin) may be advised.

Vitamin D Deficiency - 3 Symptoms Of It!

Diploma in Diabetology, MBBS

Vitamin D Deficiency - 3 Symptoms Of It!

Vitamin d deficiency is caused when your body does not get enough exposure to the sun that is the primary source of vitamin d for your body. It is crucial for the health of your bones, skin and neurological system, therefore, its deficiency may lead to a number of problems and risks such as rickets, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis etc.

Here is a list of four symptoms that can help you to identify if you suffer from a deficiency of vitamin d.

1. Bone pain and muscle weakness


Adults who suffer from a deficiency of vitamin d feel a lot of achiness and pain in the bones and muscles of their body. Also, they are troubled with joint stiffness and fatigue that lowers the overall quality of their life.

2. Fits of sadness and grief

Exposure to the sun (and hence, vitamin d) improves the level of the neurotransmitter serotonin in your body that is responsible for lifting your spirits. However, deficiency of vitamin d prevents you from having a more positive outlook towards life. So, another symptom that can help you identify that your body is deficient in vitamin d is that you've got a lot of blues.

3. A lot of head sweat

If your head sweats a lot, you can be assured that you suffer from an acute deficiency of vitamin d. Head sweating is another prominent symptom associated with vitamin d deficiency. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

Hi Frozen mutter is known to have higher nutrients when compared to fresh ones. Their vitamin c levels are high when compared to fresh peas. It is high in proteins, hence suggested for diabetics.

*Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed*Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. *Prefer fruits and green vegetables. *Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don’t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day’s action. *Don’t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. LCD screen will also have adverse effect. *Day’s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. *A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. *Low volume music also induces sleep. *Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. *Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. *Don’t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee Drinking a glass of milk before going to bed is fine. The problem can be treated by homeopathy and without adverse effects. Take homoeopathic medicine Nux vomica 200 twice daily in the morning and evening.

My mom is 57 years old .on his right leg has fractured tibia and fibula now she is fine now the broken bone has healed but now because she doesn't make movement she has now blocked knee and ankle so what she can do for the blocked knee and ankle for realising it easy and fast please ask something please.

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, There is usually stiffness that gets developed after any fracture as the patient does not move much. Prolonged immobilisation causes stiffness in the joints. It is utmost necessity that you should meet a Physiotherapist who would assess your mother's problem in detail and prescribe you a course of Physiotherapy which would involve mobilisation of the stiffened joint and exercises would be prescribed accordingly. The more you delay the stiffness develops faster. Wishing your mother good health and a speedy recovery.
