You can undergo circumsion at any age if it is giving you pain while retracting your foreskin. Some pain is involved in this surgery. Bed rest is not required, but you have to protect that area under bandage. It takes around 7-14 days to heal the sutures. Intercourse is possible after 3 to 4 weeks and it does not affect ejaculation.

To gain weight you should eat more calories than you burn. Plus not only you have to eat calorie dense food but you have to keep in mind that what you are eating is healthy too. In the process of weight gain you do not want to put weight in an uneven manner and look unhealthy rather than looking bright and healthy. 1. Start with changing your lifestly. Start working out if you are not active. The biggest myth that prevails now a days is that thin people do not need to work out. This is wrong. When you challenge your body, it is forced to grow. But this growth can only be possible if you are eating enough food to let the body absorb and grow in size and muscles. 2. Eat Healthy – Stop drinking and smoking too much if you are indulged in it. Limit your intake of junk food, pepsi, sugary stuff etc. Do not at all starve yourself. Make it a habit to eat something healthy every 3 hours. This means you have to eat 6 small meals in a day. Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. B. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. C. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. D. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. E. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. F. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. G. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain. Try to be patient while you are on the process of weight gain. Results take time to show. Just follow this regimen and you will soon start seeing the results.

I do self shave and not through saloon. I am very particular about my Hygiene. Doctor I would like to grow thick moustache please help me out. I am allergic to intake medicines. Please suggest me some good creams for external application that helps to solve the problems permanently and also enable to help in growth of new hairs in the affected regions.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user,1.Regarding the Moustache - the patchy hair loss in the moustache area could be Alopecia areata (if it is a well defined patch with total loss of hair on the patch) or could be Seborrhoeic dermatitis (which can be patchy without total loss of the hair). The treatment will vary for the two conditions. If it is Alopecia areata, the treatment can vary from creams, lotions to injections over the affected area, for Seborrhoeic dermatitis creams along with medicated anti dandruff shampoos will be of help. 2.Regarding the eyebrows - The scaly dandruff is what we term as Seborrhoeic dermatitis (which could also be the one affecting your moustache area according to me. This can be treated with use of creams along with anti dandruff treatment. To suggest the appropriate treatment, it would be best if you could consult a dermatologist in person as these are conditions that have to be seen to be treated. I hope this answers your query!

Hi. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium tcan worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Prevention: -Take healthy food only and avoid unhealthy ones (although sebaceous glands are not excretory glands then as well!) as what you eat is reflected on your face! -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension as it encourages secretion of stress hormone in the body as thus affects skin or any other tissue of the body. -Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water in a day. -Take 6-8hrs. of sound sleep everyday. -Don't use others towels, handkerchief on your face as well as never share yours. -Never ever rub your face as it damages the skin (even towel should be dab on skin softly) and break outs of acne get worsened! -Maintain hygiene, wash your face 2-3times in a day, changes the pillow covers, bed sheet daily, use cotton bed sheet only (try to sleep on your back). Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 30 days.

Essential fatty acids are specific fats that are critical to the proper function of your body. Your body is not able to produce these fatty acids on its own, so it is necessary that you eat foods containing them. Essential fatty acids from walnuts, flaxseeds, fish and avocado are great foods to eat for healthy hair.

This needs to be dealt with psychosomatic approach. Try to remain light at food, have deep breathing, fresh air walks, meditation etc. Take max leafy greens, grapes/ dried grapes/ almonds. Saraswatarishta and smritisagar rasa will help if taken with mukta pishti. You have to learn to avoid tense situation. Locally try to massage, in circular motions, raw milk cream around dark circles. It should be enriched with barberis aristata, saffron, curcumin and rubia cordifolia for better action. After keeping it for two hrs, wash with clean water
