I am suffering in some kind of scabies but I do not know what is that. This scabies is on right hand finger. So can I do?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Karimnagar
Hello lybrate user, scabies is an infection by parasite. Most commonly occurs in conditions where there is over crowding eg in hostels, poor body hygiene, using common clothes etc. It can spread from person to person through contact, sharing clothes. The parasite burrows below our skin and moves during night times. This is the time we feel itchy sensation. We need to soak all of the clothes in warm water and wash them properly and apply ointments for cure.

Hello, Take Schwabe’s Alpha-CF and Biocombination-11, both after every 2 hourly for 4 days. Management: -Sponging or bathing with tepid water. The use of a fan or air conditioning may somewhat reduce the temperature and increase comfort. If the temperature reaches the extremely high level of hyperpyrexia, aggressive cooling is required. -Take rest and drink plenty of fluids. -Take light, bland, properly cooked home-made healthy food only. For Hairloss: Take diet rich in protein like non-veg, eggs (it's loaded with essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamin b12, iron, zinc and omega 6 fatty acids in large amounts and biotin), different pulses & legumes, sprouts, nuts (sp. Walnuts and almonds); iron-rich food like green vegetables, dates, carrots, prunes, green peas; also oats, shrimp, take flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, green tea, soyabean, fruits, salads, etc. Take low-fat dairy products (they also contain whey and casein, two high-quality protein sources) take proper 6-9hrs of sound sleep. Give up the habit of smoking and excessive alcohol intake. Avoid junk food and any kind of beverages (tea, coffee, aerated drinks, cold drinks, etc.) avoid canned/ tinned food or food that contains preservatives (eat fresh ones). Avoid use of hard water to wash the head rather use boiled water for head wash. Avoid use of harsh hair colour, hair treatment like rebonding, straightening, perming, etc. Avoid vigorous exercises or any supplements provided by the gym! cover your head with scarf or cap while stepping outside. Use rose wood/ any wooden hair comb to brush your hair. Regularly massage head and hair with coconut oil, almond oil (depending upon your scalp type) 1 to 3 times a week. Regular exercising is also one of the important point, but should be done under some good, qualified yoga teacher or instructor for proper guidance; it also releases the stress/ tension in the mind and the body and keeps you fit and young! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica hair conditioner as well after every head wash.

Four years ago you were in your late adolescence and it is a very suggestive time for all such substances. I am glad you want to stop it now and hopefully forever. Marijuana has varied findings and claims, many of which are dubious, and some for medicinal uses that are authentic. But each person reacts differently to these substances and you definitely sound like someone who is not reacting well. These drugs can precipitate underlying anxiety, quite innocuously. In the meantime, you must go on a regular exercise program, eat well and sleep well. A personality course will certainly help. Do Yoga and meditation too. If the addiction is in any way covering up some deep-rooted pain, you need to work on that and clear that out of your system. I hope you are aware that people who are addicted are often spiritually bankrupt. It would be wise for you to touch base with your faith and turn to some spiritual exercises to reform your path on the right track. I am sure it will help. Do not delay any action by denial: a typical reaction of all addicts. It comes in the form of over-confidence, some arrogance, and denying the existence of any problem. Stopping weed is like any other habit like smoking and has to be done immediately, promptly, and abruptly. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning and the high you get from the weed. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking weed to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. Though there are contravening information percolating from researchers of various kinds expounding its benefits. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation, even though you are into weed. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers of weed and cigarettes for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a refill, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Jelqing is the most effective way add size to your manhood. Coupled with a water based pump, it’s the fastest way to get a thicker penis hands down. Here is a basic guide for newbies who want to start using this exercise right away. Step 1: Rub down your penis with a quality lubricant. The best lubricant for Jelqing is one that will not dry out fast, allowing you to complete several strokes before needing a second application. (I suggest astroglide) Step 2: Give yourself a partial erection, 50%-70% of your full erect state. Your penis should not be erect enough to have sex, but it should be erect enough to where you can feel blood moving in and out when you Kegel. Step 3: With your dominant hand, make the “OK” gesture while wrapping your thumb and index finger around the base of your penis. You should get as close to your pubic bone as possible. Step 4: Squeeze the “OK” grip at the base, and slide your hand upwards towards the head of your penis. You want enough pressure in your grip that you feel the squeeze, and feel the blood being forced upwards into the shaft and head of your penis. If the grip is painful at all, you are squeezing to tight, or are using an improper gripping technique. Step 5: Continue to the glance of your penis, and stop just under the outer mushroom edge of your penis glance (head). You have just completed one Jelq. Each stroke should take no longer than 3 seconds, and no less than 1 second. From One Jelq to Jelqing: From here you want to alternate hands, keeping as much blood as possible in the penis while reapplying the OK grip with your other hand. Each stroke lasting no longer than three seconds, and gripping firmly enough to create pressure inside the penile shaft. Basic Jelq- The OK Base Grip Basic Jelq- The OK Base Grip Basic Jelq- Sliding OK Grip to Penile Glands Basic Jelq- Sliding OK Grip to Penile Glands Basic Jelq- Completing the Jelq Stroke at Glands Basic Jelq- Completing the Jelq Stroke at Glands Safe Jelqing Rules Always use a lubricant! If you are circumcised, the amount of friction can cause damage unless you are uncircumcised. Always “warm-up” for a few minutes to ensure you are 50-70% erect. Never jelq while you have a full erection, this will damage your penis. Never ejaculate while jelqing, the firm OK grip will prevent your semen discharge and create a painful situation. If you are Uncircumsized, you need to read about the different variations of jelqing. Five Minute Sessions Once you get the hang of it, you should have no problem completing 100 Jelqs in 5 minutes. Use this simple routine for your first 30 days. You will immediately notice your erections are harder, and your penis will appear thicker and meatier. Week 1: One 5 minute session – 100 strokes (100 Total) Week 2: Two 5 minute sessions – 100 strokes each (200 Total) Week 3: Two 5 minute sessions – 150 strokes each (300 Total) Week 4: Two 10 minute sessions – 300 strokes each (600 Total)

There are two parts to the pumping action of the heart. The first part is called diastole, when blood collects in the lower heart chambers (right and left ventricles) as it is pushed through the tricuspid and mitral valves. Once the ventricles are filled with blood, the second part of the pumping action begins. The ventricles contract and blood is pushed from the right ventricle into the pulmonary artery and from the left ventricle into the aortic valves. This part is called systole. Diastolic dysfunction refers to when the diastole part of this action is abnormal. The ventricles do not properly relax and become stiff meaning they cannot fill with blood properly. The main causes of diastolic dysfunction are: Chronic hypertension Coronary heart disease Aging Aortic stenosis – the narrowing of a heart valve Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy – thickened and stiffness in walls of the heart Restrictive cardiomyopathy – where scars or deposits have led to stiff heart muscles your doctor will find out the cause.

Hello- Diabetes patient needs special care when they suffer from sexual problems due to their slow body metabolism and the conditions of other vitals. Normal aphrodisiacs available in market is of no use in diabetic patients. Ayurveda has advised some specific aphrodisiac supplements which can boost up the sexual potential in a diabetic person. And yes, exercise and yoga play a major role in improving the body metabolism and increasing blood flow towards the genitals. Take brisk walk if you are over weight, go for jogging if your weight comes under healthy BMI. Don't over exert as it may further worsen your condition. You can do Pawanmuktasana or bhadrasana to increase your vigor.

Hi, The following are some of the natural remedies for cold and cough: - Add a pinch of turmeric and 1/4 tsf of black pepper powder to hot milk and drink it twice a day. - Mix 1 tsf of honey to 1 tsf of basil leaf juice; take it twice a day. - Prepare a decoction by boiling one glass of water containing 1 tsf of coriander powder, 1 tsf of pepper powder and 1/2 tsf of ginger powder; reduce it to quarter glass and take it three times a day. - Apply turmeric paste on the forehead. - Do steam inhalation twice a day by adding 1-2 drops of eucalyptus oil to hot water. - Keep 1 grain of crystal salt and 2-3 black pepper in a beetle leaf, roll it and chew it. This relieves cough. Amla is rich in vit. C and vit. C is good for cold. But if you get throat irritation when amla juice is consumed. Avoid it.
