Paracetamol is the preferred drug for fevers. But combination of paracetamol and ibuprofen are available for use in fever and pain. It depends on the cause of fever too hope I answered your query.

If after meal you are getting too many burps say 8-10 and if it is chronic. What does it indicate and how it can be recovered?

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
It could be because of acidity. Try taking tablet pantop empty stomach in the morning for 10 days. If it improves its OK otherwise stop taking medicine. Get an ultrasound done , if it doesn't show any abnormality just relax. Take a good healthy diet with fruits and salads and plenty of water. Go for a morning walk. Do some yoga.

Dear lybrateuser, -Your problem may be due to weakness because of improper dietary habits -do not skip breakfast , even if you do not have much time have a fruit & milk with supplement protein powder or whole grain cereal it will provide you energy for the whole day, try to have meals on time , include more of fruits & vegetables especially green leafy vegetables, non-veg , fish, chicken if you take, nuts -have sufficient fluids 7-8 glasses per day for proper hydration as even mild dehydration causes weakness & lethargy -get investigated for blood cbc, tsh, t3, t4 & sugar levels & consult a doctor.

Hi. I have problem of heads since three four days, and also I am not sleeping for these days. So what can I do.
Follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer.

If possible send exact location of itch or pics. If you have fungal infection/itching, then home remedies or self treatment wont work to cure it, for fungal itch I will prescribe a schedule of anti fungal medication for your specific problem which have to be strictly followed or the fungii may develop resistance and come back later once cured. Hence never self treat fungal itches with any self prescribed medicines or it may lead to resistance and lifelong problem. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Nausea and vomiting or Hyperemesis Gravidarum in Pregnancy

Hi, I am Dr Tripti Raheja. I am working as consultant obstetrics and Gynaecology in Max Hospital Pitampura.

This video will provide information regarding nausea and vomiting of pregnancy and hyperemesis gravidarum which is a severe form of this condition.

Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy are a very common symptom of pregnancy. Most pregnant women experience it to some degree. Usually it starts very early in pregnancy around 5 to 7 weeks of pregnancy. It settles down by 12 to 14 weeks of pregnancy. In some women it may continue till 20 weeks of pregnancy and occasionally may last until the end of pregnancy. Usually it is most severe in the morning, so, that is why it is called as morning sickness. Though it can happen at any time, day or night. It is more severe if you are carrying more than one baby.

Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy can become so serious sometimes. It can lead to significant weight loss and dehydration. Features of dehydration are feeling very thirsty, feeling drowsy feeling and or change of colour of urine from bright yellow to dark yellow. This condition is called hyperemesis gravidarum. Women with hyperemesis gravidarum may require and should go to hospital. There is no evidence that it can cause any harm to your baby rather if you have vomiting during your pregnancy then there is a less chance of miscarriage. However, in some women who have hyperemesis gravidarum or who have severe vomiting persistently for a long time may have baby there that are lower than expected birth rate.

You can deal with nausea and vomiting of pregnancy by simply doing;

  • Diet changes, proper diet is necessary in order to overcome this problem.
  • You should take small frequent meals at regular interval.
  • You should increase carbohydrate intake your diet and decrease the intake of food. 
  • You should avoid food or smell that can Trigger your symptoms.
  • You can take medicines also with the help of your doctor. These medicines are safe during pregnancy.

In some cases where the vomiting is very severe, persistent leading to dehydration or leading to normality in the blood test patient may require admission to the hospital and treatment by IV Fluids.

If you want to consult me for that you can connect me with Lybrate. You can book an online consultation, you can check, you can do video call or you can fix up an appointment with my clinic person.
