Dear lybrate user. I can understand. But there is no miracle drugs or creams which can help you grow facial hair. You can look around you. There are many like you. Facial growth is partially genetic. You don't see your parent and grandfather at their old age. Ask them at what age they had their thick mustache. You will understand. This is normal. Don't waste your time behind such unnecessary thoughts. Take care.

Hi Sameena... My personal advise is not to give such medicines to little babies... Instead homoeopathy is very safe and very fast in action too which is world known... So better consult. You may give her Bryonia Alba 200 just one dose.

When I drink cold drinks or cold water then start my tonsils problems. N then cough will starts immediately. Why.

DORL, MBBS
ENT Specialist, Faridabad
This is because you have dry mouth and do not have mucus layer which is protective layer and gives you immunity so that bacteria does not penetrate, this can be recreated by iron rich diet, as cold drinks produces dryness in mouth due to co2 hence avoid it, avoid spicy and salty food also.

I am 35 years old, had a recent sore throat and cold and after that have dried mucus in nose. It bleeds when I try to clear it. Sore throat is better but dried mucus still keeps forming and bleeding. I have used steam inhalation and nasal spray. It helps some. Do I need antibiotics or other medicines.

Hi, mostly, you would not require antibiotics here to cure your issue of dried nasal mucous. Steam inhalation, 2 to 3 times daily, should help. At the same time, I would recommend using a saline nasal spray instead of a regular allopathic one. You may use paediatrics'nasoclear' saline nasal spray 2 to 3 times daily. Do ensure to clean up your nostrils with the saline spray before you go to bed in night. Use a humidifier in the night time and restrict using acs to the extent you can. Should you be taking any anti-histamines/ anti-allergic tab/ syp, that may also contribute to your dried mucous. So, you may stop the anti-allergic medications unless recommended for long term by your physician. Instead, you may take a glass of luke warm water to which a tsp of honey, a pinch of fresh turmeric and 1 - 2 nos of black pepper (crushed) is mixed thoroughly, post dinner at bed time. Cold foods, hot/ spicy drinks/ foods be best avoided. All the very best. Take care.

From many days I m getting queries like what are the symptom of malaria & dengue and how to differentiate between them so I thought to give an article for this purpose

Malaria & dengue

The onset of monsoon in india always brings about a rise in the cases of dengue and malaria. Both these diseases are transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito. Once infected with either of these diseases, the victims shows similar symptoms of fever and chills, making it very difficult to differentiate between the two.

However for proper treatment, it is important the patient is diagnosed for the right disease. This makes it very important that one understand the differences between dengue fever and malaria fever. Here are a few pointers that will help you understand these two diseases (dengue and malaria) better.

Causes
Dengue: dengue is transmitted by the bite of an infected aedes aegypti mosquito. It can be further spread if another mosquito bites the infected person and then spread it to people. This dengue mosquito usually attacks during the day.

Malaria: malaria is caused by the bite of a female anopheles mosquito. It can only be spread by the bite of a female anopheles mosquito unlike dengue. The malaria mosquito usually attacks during the night.

Incubation
Dengue: dengue symptoms appear 4-5 days after being infected.

Malaria: malaria symptoms appear 10-15 days after being bitten.

Symptoms
Dengue: dengue fever strikes the patient suddenly and remains for a long time. It is usually accompanied with severe headache and bone pain. Dengue fever can disappear soon but it usually reappears with skin rashes.

Malaria: malaria fever keeps reoccurring in shorter duration and is accompanied with other symptoms like joint pain, vomiting, sweating, anaemia etc. Malaria usually occurs in the following stages: chills, heat and sweating.

Diagnosis
Dengue: dengue can be thoroughly examined through a chemical process. The two tests that diagnose dengue are antigen tests and anti body test.

Malaria: malaria is examined by microscopic tests of the visuals of the virus.

What are symptoms of Malaria? What medicines should I prefer? What are causes? What are preventions? What is the cure?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What are symptoms of Malaria?
What medicines should I prefer?
What are causes? What are preventions?
What is the cure?
Symptoms are chills, fever and sweating, usually occurring a few weeks after being bitten.Malaria is a serious, sometimes fatal, disease spread by mosquitoes and caused by a parasite. In general, the drugs taken to prevent malaria are the same drugs used to treat the disease.It's not possible to avoid mosquito bites completely, but the less you're bitten, the less likely you are to get malaria

Loss of Libido / Loosing Interest in Sex? Revive It!

MD-Pharmacology, MBBS
Sexologist, Delhi
Loss of Libido / Loosing Interest in Sex? Revive It!

Your fantasies might have taken a backseat for the time being or might have remained silenced for more than a while. The other processes of your usual life go on perfectly except for a few changes that you either consider as minute or you attribute them to any cause other than lowered libido (interest in sex). 

Loss of libido can create hurdles in a man as well as a woman's life and thus should be corrected at the earliest possible. Even if you don't care much about an impaired sex life, libido loss can affect your overall health that can prove to be harmful in the long run.

Some may say that it’s all in the mind. Yes, but to a certain extent only.  Considering the following causes, you would agree that it is not always in the mind that one loses interest in sex.

The common causes of decreased libido can be listed as below:

  1. While in males, testosterone levels may sharply drop due to aging, in females the estrogen levels may drop after surgeries pertaining to the vaginal tract, after menopause or after childbirth and subsequent breast- feeding.

  2. Exhaustion from prolonged office work or extensive travelling.

  3. An instance of sexual abuse in the past can result in lowered libido.

  4. A lousy lifestyle where you either smoke or drink regularly can prevent you from experiencing sexual desires.

  5. Irregular sleep patterns can be a contributing factor as well.

  6. Illnesses like cancer, diabetes and neurological disorders can hamper your sex drive.

Ways to deal with your libido loss:

  1. Make significant efforts to change your lifestyle. If you have an erratic lifestyle, sexual dysfunction is almost inevitable. You need to follow a routine to prohibit your libido from deterioration.

  2. Meditate and/or workout daily.  Indulge in brisk walk, jogging, yoga, light exercises, swimming, play games like, badminton, table tennis, squash, etc.  Over a period of time, it can restore your interest in sexual activities.

  3. Try and reduce the stress level from your life.  Spend quality time together and with family. Take time out for a movie, an event, a long drive, or a vacation.  Share your day’s activities with each other.

  4. Eat lots of vegetables and fruits. Cut down on drinking and smoking and gradually give them up completely.

  5. Take at least 8 hours of sleep so as to wake up latest by 6:00 in the morning. 

  6. A counseling by a good sexologist can help to a great extent in overcoming this problem. A major part of my treatment for libido loss consists of Counselling. Many of my patients are now happy to revive their sexual life through my treatment. One can consult me in private if they want to say goodbye to Loss of Libido.

However, one must beware of the Quacks claiming to help you get back your “Mardana Taqat and Josh”. Always seek help from a qualified Doctor / sexologist / sexual counselor with a good track record.
