Check your urine for albumin creatinine ratio. You are young and have renal impairment which is not a good news. Are you on insulin therapy. That is your best medicine. You can consult me with this report.

My face is very oily. I have acne problems after so many treatments also there is no good result. What should I do.

General Physician, Faridabad
Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning black.

I got a small tooth cavity over my second premolar. Its paining since morning when I brushed with cold water. Since I am having exams I can not do any procedures right now. Please help me. Is it fine to take ibuprofen/diclofenac if its paining for two weeks. Is it good to do warm saline mouth gargle for this. Please reply.

MDS - Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentist, Chennai
You can take a painkiller if it is very severe pain. But its not advisable to do that for more than 2 or 3 days. Warm saline will help to a certain extent in reducing infection. But it may not help with pain. Please visit a dentist. He will just prescribe antibiotics and painkiller for three days and then you can start the treatment after exams as soon as possible. It is safer to use the drugs prescribes by the dentist and will also be effective reducing pain and infection temporarily.

Am 49 years old now am facing Sexual problem that not wakeup my penis am taking tablets for some mental problem like depression anger. Is this side effect if it is when I get back my Sexual power pls give me answer.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear Lybrate User, As far as sex is concerned body and mind are like - hardware and software. When there is a problem in your software (mind) the hardware (body) cannot function properly. Your current problem appears more like the "software" problem. You mentioned that you are on medication for anger and depression. I think, you need to deal with these issues first. Along with medicines, please seek help from a Counsellor so that you can understand what is causing your anger and depression. The Counsellor will help you to understand and manage your anger and depressive feelings. Once these emotions are taken care off, your sexual problems might reduce, because of mind-body connection. The Counsellor may refer you to a other professionals if any further investigations/assessments are required. Take care.

I have so much hairs on my face. What can I do to remove unwanted hairs from my face permanently?

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, there are different types of laser therapies (like nd-yag, quantum ipl, etc.) for hair removal treatment which are available in the market. So, you can visit any of the dermatologist or the clinic/ hospitals which specialises in these treatments. Get it done from a renowned and an expert hands only. Frequent number of sittings are required for hair removal (single sitting is not sufficient) which is recommended as per the type of machine they do have and the indian and the type of hair & skin you have. The reslts vary from person to person and it makes the hair more thinner, finer like a vellus hair which is not much visible or noticable and the more importantly they become bleachable! rate depends upon the size of the area to be treated, the no. Of sittings required and the machine which would be used for this purpose. (e. G: may start from rs. 500-700 per sitting for upper lips area and so on). (if there is any underlying medical condition like hormonal imbalance, would need more number of sittings and or there after maintenance for long time).

common causes of dry coughs are as follows: Viral infections we know as the common cold and flu. Allergies can also lead to a dry cough. Asthma,Hay fever, an allergy to grass and tree pollen, causes irritation to the eyes and nose and when the throat is affected, a cough results. Sensitivity to other particles such as animal fur, known as allergic rhinitis. Air pollutants can irritate the back of the throat causing a cough. This is the situation seen when non-smokers enter a smoky room. Treatment depends upon the underlying cause of dry cough. Home remedies such as honey soothe the lining of the tissues at the back of the throat. Conventional medicines such as cough suppressants reduce the activity of the cough reflex.

The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the can Consult me for homoepathic treatment without side effects.
