My seven year old son is suffering with urticaria from last twenty days and I have consulted with few doctors in alopathy but he is not having relief. I want to consult in homeopathy. Kindly suggest the best treatment.

Homeopath, Bhilai
Please go to any homeopathic physician near you but before that you can use camphor mixed in cocconut oil for soothing only and stop any type of non veg as it causes allergic condition in his body. Thank you for coming to private question as I also want to know his skin symptoms during the attack.

Hello Goutam If you ejaculate within a minute of penetration,you are diagnosed as a case of premature ejaculation. This problem leads to dissatisfaction in sex life and low self esteem. It's easily treatable but more details are required. Consult privately through Lybrate for treatment.

I am 24 years old and unmarried. I am 5.1 ft height and weight about 40 kgs. I want to gain weight. Just from 2 days I started this plsn of gaining. So in the morning at 8 I drink 1 glass of milk, 2 boiled only white part and 1 banana. Then I continue with doing cycling for 20 minutes and skipping 10 minutes. I am feeling a bit pain in my stomach. I think it might be due to skipping after my stomach full. Do you think my plan of gaining weight is right? Does it have any side effects? Would you like to suggest me a better idea?

Dear friend, in my opinion you should follow these____ make a time table for your break fast, lunch and dinner. Take balance diet and a lot of water daily. Add some salad, fresh and dry fruits, and milk in this. Taking some extra proteins is also good. Don't do heavy exercise, aim of exercise is to digest and assimilate food. Time of exercise should be empty stomach, before breakfast. Gradually increase the diet and exercise. Take proper rest and try to avoid stress as possible. Tell your progress after one month to guide further. Or you may ask if any questions or doubt. There are some ayurvedic medicines to help you.

He's facing night fall problem 3-4 times a week. What to do please suggest.

You will not actually lose anything when you release your semen during the night while sleeping. After attaining adolescence our bodies will change due to the increased synthesis of male hormones (in case of males) like testosterone. Testosterone is a steroidal hormone which is responsible for sperm production in the testicles and development of our secondary sexual characters. When the semen produced in the body is too much to hold in the testicles themselves, it is released voluntarily or involuntarily, as in wet dreams or night fall (during sleep). There is nothing to worry about as it is absolutely normal and natural. The body has to get rid of old semen in reserve to produce new semen. The homeostatis (automatic balance) of the body is responsible for regulating these functions involuntarily (without our conscious control). If you want to prevent this at all, then you can wash both your feet in cold water (down from the knees) and drink two glasses of water. Wet dreams will be reduced to some extent. For nite fall medicenes are tentex forte tab 2 times a day and triphala churna and dhatupusti churna 2 times a day.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have confirmed diabetes then taking anti - diabetic treatment is the only option, to control blood glucose. In addition to appropriate medicine regular exercise for more than 1 hour a day and diet control also are equally important. As regards food intake, you should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries and other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks (colas) and fructose corn syrup containing products. Consume good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits like papaya, pomegranate, orange, sweet lime, apple, pear and guava. With good glucose control fruits intake should be about 100 g a day. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines and no prescriptions. So if you want specific drugs to be prescribed please come in a private communication with all details like Fasting, PP blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, present drugs if any, dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. Based on those details I will be able to guide. Thanks.

I am too slim, even I don't work too much. Also I eat balanced diet. But I don't exercise daily. Stamina is good.

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Chandigarh
To gain weight you need to combine a balanced eating pattern with regular physical activity. You should be eating at least 6 small meals a day, rather than sticking to 3 square meals. You could divide it as 3 main meals and 3 snacks. You need to be eating every 2-3 hours. Space out snacks during the day so you don't spoil your appetite. Bread, cereal, rice, whole wheat, dalia and pasta: biscuits, and corn-bread are good sources of carbohydrates. Fruits: dried fruits, fruit nectars, and large quantities of fresh fruits vegetables: include, potatoes, peas, corn in your diet. Meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts: beef, pork, lamb, poultry, salmon, omelets, nuts, peanut butter, kidney beans, chickpeas will help you gain weight. Include dairy products like milk, yogurt, and cheese: milk, fruited yogurts, hard cheeses, ice cream, puddings, custards, milkshakes. -nuts and seeds make a healthy option for snacks. -roasted channas and peanuts are good -peanut butter on the sandwiches are a great mid-meal choice. -you must know that cereals actually contain some healthy calories. Stay hydrated: drinking plenty of water and other fluids like juices, milk, soups etc, will work in your favour. Do not drink water before a meal and in between the meal as it may make you lose your appetite, thus calorie intake suffers. Sleep: at least 8 hours of sound sleep is a must. Since your body is actually building up muscles, while you rest. Weight gainers have long term side effects.

Itching between fingers with small vesicular erruptions can be due to Sweat or there are chances of Scabies-a skin disease. Maintain proper hygiene.

Mother's dengue is not related to child's ill health. You have not mentioned the age of the child. Children less than 5 years usually have less immunity and some children fall sick frequently. Dengue most of the time is a mild illness. Rarely it goes for complications.
