-Dolo-650 mg twice or thrice daily can be taken to lower a fever . -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress. Overdressing can cause temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -Fever can cause severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami,Amla juice etc. ,, -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food

Hi, I want to ask that is masturbation a problem or not and tell me how can I leave this habit.
Masturbation twice per week is healthy. Masturbation should be done when there is no time limit and there is no fear that someone while doing so will catch them. Use start and stop technique in masturbation. Here are the best ways on how to quit masturbation. Remove all the sources that trigger the urge to perform the act of masturbation such as block the websites which allows access to pornographic content. Some toys which trigger the body sexually to perform masturbation must be removed. Try to avoid staying up until late night. Avoid taking hot showers which may also trigger the urge to perform masturbation. Getting socially active is one of the important factors for controlling and quitting masturbation, as living alone promotes the activity of masturbation especially if a person is heartbroken with his relationship. Getting in a social group fills up the leisure time so that the person can optimally control such thoughts. One of the most important things is to try not to touch the intimate part of the body. To ensure this, spend more time in good company and not alone. If any other friend is also experiencing the issues, then it is always a good idea to quit the relationship or friendship. Masturbation also results due to excessive body stress or tension. Exercising regularly helps in relieving the body stress and tension. It is recommended to increase or double the exercise when a person feels depressed or stressed. Try to make the body to adapt abstinence. Initially try not to perform masturbation for a day, then gradually moves to days then weeks. A homoepath can help in finding if there are some underlying causes that entice you to perform masturbation so regularly. If there is some cause then appropriate treatment can be sought.

Dear lybrate-user, the problem with alcohol is it gives too much desire and takes away the performance. If you are consuming daily, probably you are dependent on alcohol. You need to stop alcohol with the help of doctor and medicines. Your sex life will improve after that. Don't say that your friends are having sex after alcohol. Each one has different way of reacting to alcohol. This is your way. Your sex life will improve once you get married to your girl friend. Lot of things, like less time, urgency, guilt of making her pregnant, inferiority complex etc may be playing a role. All of them will improve once you get married. Don't worry - you are able to get erection, you are able to penetrate - these things show you are normal.

not getting menstruation could be due to breast feeding of the baby. if not you have to look for other causes. epilepsy and the medicines used for treating it are not known to cause any menstrual disturbance. if you are not breast feeding pregnancy has to be ruled out and other causes have to be looked in to.

In my opinion you have some allergic factor, which may cause produce mucous in excess. Try to detect it you should make investigation for allergy test. You are practising yoga, it is good, it should be done under expert guru. As medicine you take bibhitak powder3gm morn. And evening with warm water. Avoid dahi, citrous fruits, rice and all refrigerated items. Take ginger treated warm water 250 ml in morning.

Stress is one of the important factors which can lead to recurrent acidity and ulcers in the long run. There are many other causes for ulcers, which can be treated with medicine. However, underlying stress should be identified by a qualified psychiatrist, who can help you identify, explore and evade unwanted stress.

Take 2-3 glasses of warm lime water with honey in morning and go for a walk. You are particular about your diet it seems. Eat dinner early. Take a cup of warm milk before going to bed its good that you are avoiding laxatives. Try isabgol with warm milk at bed time.
