Natural Remedies To Treat Sunburn!

Natural Remedies To Treat Sunburn!

Prolonged exposure to the scorching sun is the sole reason for a sunburn and heat rash.

Sunburn and rashes cause itching and redness on the skin and most commonly affects the face, neck, back or the chest due to exposure to temperature extremes.

Here are some easy and effective home remedies, collected from grandmothers’ recipes, for you to try this summer to treat sunburn and heat rashes:

1. Gram flour (besan):

Gram flour or besan smoothens the skin and acts as a cleanser. It helps to remove the impurities, sweat, and dirt that clog the pores from the skin surface. You can prepare a thick paste of gram flour and water/rose water. Apply the paste on the affected area or rashes and keep it for 10-15 minutes. Wash away with cold water.


2. Baking soda:

Baking soda has antibacterial properties that prevent infections and also help to smoothen the burnt area. Mix half a spoon of baking soda and water. Using a soft cloth, dip it in the solution and gently rub over the affected areas. Rinse after a couple of minutes.

3. Raw potato:

A raw potato is a rich source of starchy compounds and helps to reduce the burning sensation of sunburn/heat rash. It acts as an emollient that softens the skin and reduces the redness. Slice a raw potato and place it on the affected area. Leave the potato slice on for 15 minutes and then rinse the face with cold water.

4. Papaya: 

Papaya is a rich source of antioxidants and enzymes that have healing abilities and helps to treat sunburns and rashes. It also acts as an exfoliator to unclog and clear the pores. Slice the papaya and mash it. Apply the paste on the affected area for a few minutes and let it dry. Wash it with cold water.

5. Coconut oil: 

Coconut oil is hydrating and therefore helps to nourish the skin. Anti-bacterial in nature, it helps to smoothen the skin immediately and also renews the skin. Apply coconut oil on the rash or affected area and leave it for some time. The skin shall absorb it and get nourished.

Hello doctor I ma 17 weeks pregnant can I take beetroot juice during this time is it safe.
Yes definitely. Beetroot is rich in folic acid that is essential during pregnancy for the growth of baby and prevention of defects in him/her. Beetroot rich in folic acid helps in the growth of spinal cord in baby. It also helps in protecting the baby from taking up the spinal cord defect.

Trying to conceive for 4 months is short duration, so need not to worry. Keep on trying for 5-6 months during your wife's ovulation days and in the meantime get semen analysis done, it is good to diagnose whether need any medication or report is fine.

What Are The Common STD Diseases?

MD
Sexologist, Srinagar
What Are The Common STD Diseases?

Do you know about the different types of sexually transmitted diseases and how they are caused? STDs are caused mostly by bacterial infections. The bacteria get transmitted while having sex, in the case of most common STDs. There are several STDs which commonly occur in people, primarily because of having unprotected sex.

Causes:

There are various forms of infections, including bacteria like gonorrhea and syphilis, viral STDs like HIV, ghnital herpes, hepatitis B, and genital warts. The germs which lead to the STDs dwell in the semen, vaginal secretions, and saliva. The transmission mostly occurs through vaginal, anal, and oral contact. Certain STDs are caused due to skin contact.

Types of STDs:

The most common STD diseases are as follows:

  1. Chlamydia- This bacterial infection occurs in your genital tract, and it is difficult to diagnose as no early symptoms are always experienced. The disease strikes three weeks after the exposure to the responsible bacteria. Lower abdominal pain and vaginal discharge are indicated as symptoms.

  2. Gonorrhea- This is a bacterial infection, which affects the genital tract. It can also develop in your eyes, mouth, throat, and anus. The symptoms start appearing within ten days of the exposure. Major symptoms include thick, bloody discharge from the penis or vagina. Painful sensation while urinating is also indicated.

  3. Trichomoniasis- This STD occurs from a microscopic, single-celled parasite called trichomonas vaginitis. It is commonly transmitted during sexual intercourse with an affected individual. In the case of men, the disease infects the urinary tract, without showing any symptoms in many cases. In women, the vagina is affected. The condition appears twenty-eight days within exposure. Mild irritation and severe inflammation are common symptoms. A clear white, greenish or yellowish vaginal discharge is likely in women, while discharge from the penis occurs in the case of men.

  4. HIV- HIV occurs because of the human immunodeficiency virus. HIV is a severe health disease which disrupts your body’s immune system, or your body’s ability to fight fungi and bacteria that lead to illness. HIV results in AIDS, which is a chronic, life-threatening condition. Commonly, early stage symptoms are not experienced in case of HIV. An illness which is similar to flu within two to six weeks of infection is likely to occur in some patients. You need to take a screening test for HIV for the diagnosis of this condition.

Another common STD which occurs is genital herpes. This is caused due to a certain form of the HSV or herpes simplex virus. The virus enters your body through tiny breaks in your skin membrane or mucous. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Anemia in hindi - रक्त की कमी

Anemia in hindi - रक्त की कमी

वैसे तो एनीमिया कोई बहुत बड़ी बीमारी नहीं है, मगर ये कई बड़ी और जानलेवा बीमारियों की वजह से जरूर हो सकती है। यह बीमारी पुरुषों की अपेक्षा महिलाओं में ज्यादा देखी जाती है। हमारे देश की लगभग 90 प्रतिशत महिलाएं एनीमिया से पीड़ित हैं। एनीमिया को लोग सामान्य मानकर अनदेखा कर देते हैं, जबकिम इस स्थिसतिब से जान तक जा सकती है। सामान्य भाषा में बात करे तो खून में आयरन की कमी से हीमोग्लोबिन की कमी हो जाती है, जिसे हम एनीमिया के नाम से जानते हैं।  

आयरन की कमी है मुख्य वजह 
विज्ञान की भाषा में इसे ऐसे समझा जा सकता है किम हमारा शरीर तीन तरह की ब्लड सेल्स बनाता है- आरबीसी यानी श्वेत रुधि र कणिका, डब्ल्यूबीसी या श्वेत रुधिर कणिका और प्लेटलेट्स। डब्ल्यूबीसी शरीर को बाहरी संक्रमण से बचाती हैं। प्लेटलेट्स रक्त का थक्का जमाने में मदद करती हैं और आरबीसी का काम आपके पूरे शरीर को ऑक्सीजन पहुंचाना है। हमारे शरीर की कोशिकाओं को एक्टिव रहने के लिए ऑक्सीजन की जरूरत होती है। ये ऑक्सीजन शरीर के अलग-अलग भागों में आरबीसी में मौजूद हीमोग्लोबिरन की मदद से पहुंचता है। आयरन हमारे शरीर में आरबीसी का निर्माण करता है। आयरन की कमी से आरबीसी और हीमोग्लोबिलन बनने की क्रिया प्रभावित होती है। इसके प्रभावति होने से कोशिकाओं तक ऑक्सीजन नहीं पहुंच पाता। हम खाने के रूप में जो कार्बोहाइड्रेट और वसा लेते हैं, ऑक्सीजन उसे जलाकर ऊर्जा पैदा करता है। ये ऊर्जा हमारे जीवन के लिंए जरूरी है। जब शरीर में आयरन की इतनी कमी हो जाए कि शरीर और दिमाग की काम करने की क्षमता प्रभावित होने लगे, तो इस स्थितिल को एनीमिया या रक्तअल्पता कहते हैं।

एनीमिया के कारण 
शरीर में जरूरी पोषक तत्वों की कमी के अलावा इसके पीछे कोई गंभीर बीमारी भी हो सकती है। एनीमिया रक्त से जुड़ी समस्या है। इसके कारण भी अलग-अलग हो सकते हैं। जैसे- रक्त में आरबीसी का कम बनना, हेमरेज या ज्यादा खून बह जाना, आयरन की कमी, विटामिन बी 12 या फोलिक एसिड की कमी। खाने में ज्यादा मात्रा में कैल्शिगयम लेना। हरी सब्जिियां कम या बिल्कुल न खाना। किसी इन्फेक्शन या लंबी बीमारी के चलते भी एनीमिया के लक्षण दिखाई दे सकते हैं।  इसके साथ ही माहवारी (पीरियड्स) के दिनों में बहुत ज्यादा स्राव भी एक वजह हो सकती है। वहीं इसके पीछे अनुवांशिक कारण भी हो सकता है। यहां देखें और वजहें.

1. गंभीर बीमारियों से हुआ एनीमिेया: 
कैंसर, एड्स, किडनी की समस्या और रुमेटाइड अर्थराइटिीस जैसी बीमारियों के जलते आरबीसी का निर्माण प्रभावित होता है।
2. ए-प्लास्टिक एनीमिया: 
इन्फेक्शन, हानिकारक पदार्थों का प्रभाव और कुछ दवाओं के प्रभाव से भी ये बीमारी हो सकती है। ए-प्लास्टििक एनीमिया बहुत कम केसों में होता है, लेकिन ये जानलेवा बीमारी है।

एनीमिया के लक्षण 
एनीमिया होने पर आपके शरीर में ऊर्जा की कमी हो जाती है। ऐसे में कमजोरी और थकान महसूस होती है। अगर लगातार एनीमिया रहे तो न्यूरोलॉजिकल गड़बड़िभयां देखने को मिलती हैं। बच्चों में पेट में कीड़े होने पर उनमें एनीमिया की शिकायत देखने को मिलती है। ऐसे में वह चिड़चिड़े हो जाते हैं और रोते रहते हैं। एनीमिया में सांस लेने में दिक्कत होती है और कमजोरी से चक्कर भी आ सकता है। लगातार एनीमिया रहने पर सिरदर्द, पैरों मे दर्द, जीभ में जलन, हल्का बुखार, गला सूकना, बाल गिरना, मुंह में छाले पड़ना, नाखून पीले पड़ जाना और सीने में दर्द जैसी शिकायतें भी मिलती हैं।

तुरंत कराएं जांच 

अगर आपको इनमें से कोई भी लक्षण दिखाई दें, तो डॉक्टर की सलाह लेकर ब्लड टेस्ट कराएं। महिलाओं में आजमाएं ये उपाय: 
खाने में ऐसी चीजें शामिल करें जिनमें आयरन प्रचुर मात्रा में पाया जाता हो। इसके लिेए चुकंदर, गाजर, टमाटर, पत्तागोभी, हरी सब्जिियां अपनी डाइट में शामिल करें।

  • अगर मांसाहारी हों तो खाने में अंडा लें। मूंग की दाल और बाजरा भी काफी फायदेमंद होता है।
  • ऐसा माना जाता है किल लोहे की कढ़ाई में खाना पकाकर खाने से भी शरीर को आयरन मिलता है।
  • रोजाना सेव डायट में शामिल करें। दूध और केला भी पोषक तत्वों की कमी को पूरा करता है।
  • ज्यादा मात्रा में कैल्शिलयम भी हानिकारक होता है। बाजार में आयरन की गोलियां मिलती हैं लेकिन अपने आप इनका इस्तेमाल न करें।

As long as you both are comfortable and enjoying and there is no heath issue excessive sex is no problem. But as excess of every thing is bad and it is applicable to sex also, in long run one may loose charm of sex and life may become monotonous, one may not enjoy sex and may do it as duty or compulsory routine. So have it in such a way that you enjoy it for a long long time to come.

Mere presence of fibroid does not need surgery always. Treatment depends on size and location of fibroid and whether she is having any problems or not.

TIPS TO INCREASE SPERM COUNT -

Citrus Fruits
Antioxidants like the vitamin C found in citrus fruits can increase sperm count. Orange or grapefruit juice that contains 100 percent fruit juice will provide the same effect. Males who aren’t big juice drinkers can try squeezing fresh lemon juice into their water.

Bananas
There are some awesome things going on in bananas to help increase sperm count. Bananas have a rare enzyme in them called Bromelain, which has been shown to regulate sex hormones. There’s also a good amount of vitamin B1, vitamin A, and vitamin C which will help increase his stamina and boost his body’s ability to make sperm.

Tomatoes
Tomatoes contain lycopene which also raises sperm count. Since lycopene is also found in ketchup and marinara sauces, most men won’t need much encouragement to add this to their diet.

Beans
A zinc deficiency is one of the leading causes of male infertility. Beans are a versatile, vegetarian source of zinc. To avoid food boredom, get creative with bean dishes. Try making chicken burritos or tacos with black beans, turkey chili with pinto beans, hummus (which is made from garbanzo beans) or lentil soup.

Nuts
Nuts are great for raising sperm count because they contain zinc and the antioxidant vitamin E—both of which can raise sperm counts. Try to have a handful of unsalted nuts like almonds every day.

Dark Chocolate
There’s no sexier food to bring into the bedroom than dark chocolate, but now, it’s not just the seductive taste you’ll want it for. Dark chocolate contains L-Arginine HCL, an amino acid related to the arginine in walnuts. It also doubles your guy’s sperm count and semen volume. Men who eat a little dark chocolate everyday have also noted that they have stronger and more intense orgasms. BONUS: it does that for you, too. *wink*

Meat
Red meat and turkey are other sources of zinc. Neither contain as much as oysters, but they may be easier to consume on a regular basis. Consume fresh turkey because processed meats are high in salt and other preservatives. Since red meat is high in saturated fat, stick to just one serving of lean-cut red meat per week.

Pomegranate
This is the most super of all super foods. It seems like it can truly cure whatever ails you from the common cold to low sperm count. Because of the intense cocktail of antioxidants in pomegranates, the juice can lower a chemical in the blood called malondialidehyde. That chemical destroys sperm, so drinking pomegranate juice is like putting a super hero cape on all those sperm so they can destroy the evil free radicals and get to the egg just in time.

Walnuts
Walnuts contain arganine, which helps the testicles to increase sperm production and also aids in semen volume increase. It also contains Omega-3 fatty acids which improve the blood flow to the penis. These nuts also have twice the antioxidant power over other nuts so they do a great job of protecting the little guys, too. BONUS: eating 7 walnuts a day lowers cholesterol and the risk of heart disease.

Eggs
Eggs contain two ingredients known to raise sperm count—vitamin B12 and selenium. Since it’s often hard to find the time for a sit-down breakfast, hard boil eggs the night before and take them on the go.

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? Can numerous fibroids and an enlarged uterus cause bladder prolapse? Why does my gynecologist think my bladder bulging into my vaginal canal is a fibroid even after I was sent to a urologist for stress incontinence issues?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and enlarged uterus can cause bladder prolapse as its an anatomical variation.
