I'm facing some issues with my right ear since the last few months. It feels as if it is blocked by water or something. I feel intense pain sometimes and my voice has been varying a bit due to this. There is some little liquid always coming out of the ear. I have used an ear drop to clear up my ear, but it didn't work. Also, I have this problem only when I come to Kolkata. I tried to flush out the water using over the counter remedies but it didn't help much. What am I supposed to do? Please help.

Hi lybrate-user, I am sire you have received the diet you wanted for the multiple problems you are going through including pcod. One thing I am sure and can guess is that your emotional life is in turmoil. Pcod is only treatable and curable with homeopathy. It is a very common scene in the clinic that pcod got cured with homeopathy. I am not talking about relief, I am talking about cure. If your emotional state matches the homeopathic remedy you will certainly get cured. Diet and therapies are just an aid. They just help.

Hello Increasing penis length, girth and enhancing overall appearance is quite possible. This is because the male organ consists of muscles and no bones. As you can develop your biceps, muscles can also be developed present in penis. However, for this, you need to nourish the male organ from both the sides; internally and also externally. There are many homoepathic medicine available. The muscles present in penis are very flexible and strong when they become straight and erected. They are otherwise flaccid in resting position. For this, you should do exercises advised and homoepathic medicines to nourish the entire structure. You can Consult me for homoepathic treatment without side effects.

You are suffering from jock itch. Jock itch is a very common groin rash. Roughly half of jock itch is due to fungus. The remainder is caused by moisture, irritation, and bacterial overgrowth. In most cases, jock itch can be treated at home effectively. You can try the following remedies to get rid of the infection: 1. Apply over-the-counter antifungal cream, powder, or spray to the affected area - our best options include Lamisil, Lotrimin Ultra, and/or Naftin. These are more expensive, but they will get rid of jock itch faster. Prefer Lotrimin Ultra which contains Butenafine Hydrochloride over regular Lotrimin AF which just contains clotrimazole. Studies have shown Butenafine can be faster and more effective than clotrimazole. You can also purchase cheaper creams containing clotrimazole or miconazole. These will take a little longer to work, but they will effectively wipe out jock itch. 2. Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and warm water. 3. Dry the affected area thoroughly after bathing and exercise. 4. Change clothes and undergarments every day. 5. Wear loose cotton clothing. Avoid wearing any clothing that rubs or irritates your crotch. 6. Treat any other fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot. Doing this will decrease the risk for recurrence.

Zolomist is not a drug for permanent treatment of Migraine. It has many serious side effects. It is reserved for only occasional use when migraine can't be controlled with other drugs. Please stop the treatment. Migraine is mysterious disease arising out of poor lifestyle and stress. You need to see a good doctor who can correct your husband's lifestyle and diet. You need some holistic therapy also.

; hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns, normally the foreskin should move or slide over head of penis, if you find it difficult consult a general surgeon you may need a short course of antibiotics plus pain killers, or small cut. Simple procedure. Called circumcision.
