Hi, I suffered from jock itch for a few months, I initially tried the Candid Dusting powder which helped a little but the itching was always back so then I took a anti fungal cream from pharmacy named Clobiprop NM which helped reducing the rashes but still they came back as soon as I stopped applying the cream. So after multiple Attempts I applied a stronger cream Clop GM which reduced the rash and itch but now the skin is turned white and it hurts and itches. Please suggest some cure or medication.

it's no use of applying stringer chemical medicines. Now is the time to switch to the ayurveda. Initially do it for a month and see results yourself. First of all clean surface preferably with neem water, let dry, apply marichyadi tel all over. Better do it twice. Also one tip that scratch skin a bit and then apply this oil. Check tendency of your skin to catch such infection/ allergy etc.

Good day lybrate-user. You have not mentioned your weight, whether you are married and had children. And poly cystic of what. Kidney or ovary. If it's ovary. You need treatment to reduce your pain and menstrual problems if you got any. And usually the treatment is life time or till your menstrual cycles stop. But if you have severe symptoms then you may need surgical intervention. If it's kidney. Then you need to regularly monitor your second normal kidney function and blood pressure. Keep your weight in control, do some regular exercise consult your physician regularly for further follow up and management.

Stockings won't help now as itvis already grade 3 and blackening had already started. You have 2 choices either to go for Sclerotherapy or laser ablation. Sclerotherapy has much recurrence in future, so laser therapy is the ultimate option remains now. Even you need to have grafting also. For further assistance contact me.

If now you feel ok let go. Always use fresh and light food. Avoid oily spicy and fast food. Stomach should not empty more than 4 hrs. Take plenty of water fruits and keep yourself active. Mahashankh vati 1 tab chew 3 time a day will be helpful.

Weakness and fatigue

If you have generalized weakness and fatigue along with other symptoms, evaluate those symptoms. Home treatment for your other symptoms usually will improve your weakness and fatigue. Mild generalized weakness and fatigue that occur with a viral illness usually improve with the following home treatment measures.

Get extra rest while you are ill. Let your symptoms be your guide.
If you have a cold, you may be able to stick to your usual routine and just get some extra sleep.
If you have the flu, you may need to spend a few days in bed.
Return to your usual activities slowly to avoid prolonging the fatigue.
Be sure to drink extra fluids to avoid dehydration.
If generalized weakness and fatigue are not related to another illness, follow the guidelines in the prevention section and be patient. It may take a while for you to feel energetic again.

Listen to your body. Alternate rest with exercise. Gradually increasing your exercise may help decrease your fatigue.
Limit medicines that might contribute to fatigue. Tranquilizers and cold and allergy medicines often cause fatigue.
Improve your diet. Eating a balanced diet may increase your energy level. Do not skip meals, especially breakfast.
Reduce your use of alcohol or other drugs, such as caffeine or nicotine, which may contribute to fatigue.
Cut back on watching television. Spend that time with friends, try new activities, or travel to break the fatigue cycle.
Get a good night's sleep. This may be the first step toward controlling fatigue.
Eliminate all sound and light disturbances.
Do not eat just before you go to bed.
Use your bed only for sleeping. Do not read or watch tv in bed.
Get regular exercise but not within 3 to 4 hours of your bedtime.
For more information, see actionset. Gif insomnia: improving your sleep.

Symptoms to watch for during home treatment
Call your doctor if any of the following occur during home treatment:

New symptoms develop along with the weakness and fatigue.
Symptoms last longer than 2 weeks.
Symptoms become more severe or more frequent.

Palpitations are the sensation of your heart beating and are common. Most cases are harmless. They usually only last for a short time and can be accompanied by other symptoms such as breathlessness, dizziness, chest tightness and a feeling of anxiety. Palpitations that are severe or don't settle quickly may need urgent medical attention. The most common causes are mentioned below.

It is one of the very common complaints in male and mostly it is not because of any illness. Its usually because of sensitivity, anxiety and lacking proper understanding. U can use Damiagra homeopathic preparation by SBL. And one more advuse is that while having an intercourse don't hold your breath. Keep breathing properly and at a normal rate.
