I am losing hair very badly. I apply shampoo and oil twice a week and i'm taking vitamin-e tabs one per day but no result. Please suggest me what to do!

Hair fall may be attributed to different reasons like using artificial colors, hair styling, chemicals etc. It may be due to some internal weakness also. Please go for herbal neem shampoo. Use shikakai and amla as conditioner (soak amla and shikakai in water overnight and boil a little in morning). Apply it on hairs. Keep for half an hour and then wash. It will condition the hairs. Too much shampooing can lead to more hair fall. Start using amla bhringraj oil on your dry scalp. This will increase the density & stop hair fall. Eat amla (indian gooseberry) in daily routine in any form whether it is candies, juice or raw. This habit will help in hair re-growth. Amla is a good source of many vitamins & it also increases absorption of iron from gut. For females above 40 years of age iron, calcium is must for stopping hair fall. Avoid using comb in wet hairs.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Do not relate alcohol with sex. Alcohol in the initial stages improves perception and sensory sensations. More alcohol creates problems. In fact, if you have more alcohol, your sexual pleasure will be less. Quit alcohol. Take care.

My heart rate is consistently above 100 at rest. On lying down its 103 and on sitting its 112. I also feel dizzy and weak. Is it a cause for concern?

M.P.H, B.H.M.S
Homeopath,
Many factors influence resting heart rate. Genes play a role. Aging tends to speed it up. Regular exercise tends to slow it down. Stress, medications, and medical conditions also influence the heart rate. You can slow your resting heart rate by doing things that are also well known to help maintain a healthy heart: exercise more. Reduce stress. Avoid tobacco products. Lose weight. Still if your hear rate is more or increasing visit your doctor. Use manual method to find heart rate.

There could be many factors that lead to premature ejaculation in men; studies indicate that in most cases, it is emotional factors that lead to this problem; however, at times, premature ejaculation and low sexual stamina could occur due to physical factors too. Some of the most common factors that lead to premature ejaculation in men include: ? Excessive stress ? Leading a hectic lifestyle, which causes fatigue and tiredness ? Nervousness or anxiety about something ? Lack of self confidence ? Following an unhealthy diet ? Sedentary lifestyle or lack of adequate physical activity during the day ? Aging ? Obesity or a high Body Mass Index (BMI) In some cases, it is possible that premature ejaculation and a low sexual drive could be an indication of a deeper underlying condition. Hence, it is important to consult a doctor to identify what the premature ejaculation causes are and the treatment that should be adopted. Medicenes like increwses sexual power cap-rejospermin and tab-rejovate these are herbal pills these heplfull to cures early ejaculation and increase sexual time also Sexual Stamina Foods and Drinks There are certain foods and beverages that work as an aphrodisiac and therefore increase the sexual drive for men. Some of the most commonly recommended food items for increasing sexual stamina include garlic (capsules or fresh), celery, raw oysters, almonds, liver, mangoes, strawberries, peaches, avocado, bananas and eggs. It is a well-known fact that chocolate is an excellent ingredient for increasing sexual drive and performance and this could also include hot chocolate. Alcohol should be strictly avoided as it could have the opposite effect.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

General Physician,
Heavy sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) is a very real and embarrassing problem, but there are some effective ways to treat it. What Is Hyperhidrosis? Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness. An estimated 2-3% of people suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start in late adolescence, while palm and sole sweating often begins earlier, around the age 13 (on the average). Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life. Sweating is embarrassing, it stains clothes, ruins personal contact, and complicates business and social interactions. Severe cases can have serious practical consequences as well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands. Causes OF Hyperhidrosis:- Although neurologic, endocrine, infectious, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause hyperhidrosis, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all their waking hours, regardless of their mood or the weather. Antiperspirants This may be the first treatment that a dermatologist recommends. It is affordable. When applied as directed, an antiperspirant can be effective. Your dermatologist may recommend a regular or clinical-strength antiperspirant. Some patients need a stronger antiperspirant and receive a prescription for one. Iontophoresis (the no-sweat machine) If excessive sweating affects your hands, feet, or both areas, this may be an option. You will use this treatment at home. It requires you to immerse your hands or feet in a shallow pan of tap water. As you do this, a medical device sends a low-voltage current through the water. Many people obtain relief. Some people dislike that this treatment can be time-consuming. Uses: Hands and feet It works by the electric current shuts down the treated sweat glands temporarily. Side effects: Some people develop: •Dry skin •Irritated skin •Discomfort during treatment Prescription medicine Some patients receive a prescription for a medicine that temporarily prevents them from sweating. These medicines work throughout the body. However we cannot prescribe in open question answer session as a rule but you can ask in consultation. These medicines prevent the sweat glands from working. Athletes, people who work in a hot place, and anyone who lives in a warm climate should use extreme caution when using this treatment. The body may not be able to cool itself. Uses: These medicines can effectively treat sweating that involves entire body. This medicine also can be an effective treatment for post-menopausal women who sweat excessively only from their head. Side effects: The medicines that prevent the sweat glands from working can cause: •Dry mouth •Dry eyes •Blurry vision •Heart palpations (abnormal heartbeat) Surgery If other treatments fail to bring relief, surgery may be considered. Surgery is permanent and carries risks. The following surgeries can stop excessive sweating: •Surgically remove sweat glands •Sympathectomy A dermatologist can surgically remove sweat glands from the underarms. This surgery can be performed in a dermatologist’s office. Only the area to be treated is numbed, so the patient remains awake during the surgery. A dermatologist may use one or more of the following surgical techniques to remove sweat glands from the underarms: •Excision (cut out sweat glands) •Liposuction (remove with suction) •Curettage (scrape out) •Laser surgery (vaporize) Sympathectomy is another surgery used to treat hyperhidrosis. This is major surgery, which a surgeon performs in an operating room. During sympathectomy, the surgeon tries to stop the nerve signals that your body sends to the sweat glands. To do this, the surgeon will cut or destroy certain nerves. To find these nerves, the surgeon inserts a mini surgical camera into the patient’s chest just beneath the underarm. The patient’s lung must be temporarily collapsed so that the surgeon can cut or destroy nerves. Uses: •Surgical removal of sweat glands is used to treat the underarms •Sympathectomy is mainly used to treat the palms.

Hello. Am in serious trouble from past 4 years and I see no hope. I am a 22 year old male. During my puberty every thing was normal. Hormonal changes in my body were completely normal. My muscles. Body hairs. Voice deepening every thing took place. I was like a normal male attracted towards, girls, having good sexual instinct and completely active. But when I reached 18- 19 years. Suddenly my sexual instinct started declining, my libido became very low, I started feeling lethargy constantly with lower back pain. My sperm thickness got reduced. I was shocked with the fact that how it could occur at such age. But the truth I am in serious trouble. Have never been in depression, neither I have obesity and I am very active person. From past four years I am suffering with extreme low libido. What could be the reason behind it? My family doctor made me do some urine test and he told me that I am totally fit. But it know that something is seriously wrong.
