Underweight is a term describing a person whose body weight is considered too low to be healthy. The definition usually refers to people with a body mass index (bmi) of under 18.5 a weight 15% to 20% below that normal for their age and height group. Low weight may be due to improper diet, reduced assimilation from intestine, illness, metabolism, genetics etc. Thus first we have to rule out any such condition, with this have a healthy diet with more proteins (legumes, eggs, fish, lean meat, vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water and go for regular exercise. A homoeopathic constitutional treatment will definitely help you a lot.

Infants suffer from fever during teething. It is a fact I had read. What's the reason?
Sir, Teething per se will not cause Fever. If child gets infected during teething, child gets fever. During teething, they will have irritation, due to which, they will put their mouth to everything., and get infected.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Homeopathic remedies provide a permanent solution for Anal Fistula. The Homeopathic medicines for anal fistula, which are sourced from natural substances, are of great help in curing Anal Fistula. These remedies help in complete recovery from abnormal fistulous tracts in a very safe manner. Homeopathic medicines are better than surgical interventions when it comes to a permanent cure for Anal Fistula. Initially, the Homeopathic medicines help to reduce acute symptoms of pus discharge from the fistula, pain, burning, soreness and itching in the anal area. Afterwards, these medicines aim to heal the fistulous tract and eradicate the chronic tendency of Anal Fistula.

All About Chicken Pox

Diploma In Dermatology And Venerology And Leprosy (DDVL), MBBS

All About Chicken Pox

Chickenpox is an airborne illness, which spreads effortlessly through sneezes and coughs of an affected individual. The disease is highly contagious and is caused due to an infection by the varicella zoster virus (VZV). The characteristic features are skin rashes that form small, itchy blisters. It may also spread through contact with the person affected with blisters.

Symptoms: The early signs in teenagers and adults (loss of appetite, nausea, pain in muscles and headache) followed by the trademark rash or oral sores and mild fever that indicate the presence of the ailment. In children, there is an absence of the early signs. The rashes begin as red spots on visible areas of the body and thereby increases in severity as time progresses.

At the stage of blister, intense itching occurs. Visible symptoms develop in the oral cavity and tonsil in the form of ulcers, which can be extremely painful. These symptoms appear between 10 to 21 days of contact with the infected person. Since the nasal excretion contains the virus, the infected person becomes infectious around 2 days before the visible symptoms appear. Usually, the condition self resolves in around 2 weeks.

Prevention: Chicken pox can be prevented by:

  1. Maintaining proper hygiene standards. The infected person should be kept in isolation. The virus is susceptible to disinfectants, heat and detergents.
  2. In most top countries, compulsory vaccination is followed to prevent chicken pox. After the first immunization, the second dosage is recommended after 5 years.

Treatment: Easing the symptoms is the main focus of treatment. The infected are advised to remain at home, in isolation, in order to prevent the spread of the disease. Measures should be taken to avoid scratching so that secondary infections are prevented. Good hygiene and using of warm water to clean the skin daily, is mandatory. Paracetamol might be used to reduce fever. Treatment using antivirals (with 24 to 48 hours of onset) is recommended for adults, but not for children. Water intake to reduce dehydration and headache is advised. 

Since chickenpox is more severe in adults than it is in children, parents usually favour their wards receiving the virus at an early age. This is countered by doctors who believe that children are safer using vaccination, which is the virus in a weakened form, rather than the disease that may prove to be fatal.

Chemical Burns - Do s and Don ts You Must Follow

DDVL, MBBS
Dermatologist, Bangalore
Chemical Burns - Do s and Don ts You Must Follow

A chemical burn can occur owing to a number of substances, for instance, if the skin comes in contact with strong acids, bases, irritants, gasoline, paint thinner and drain cleaners then it react with your skin. Chemical burns are also termed as caustic burns. The symptoms usually depend on the intensity of a burn, which include redness, irritation, numbness, pain, the skin turning black and dead or even vision loss, if the chemicals come in contact with the eyes.

What are the Do’s and Don’ts?

  1. Do away with those chemicals, which have caused the burn or wipe off the dry chemicals. It is safe to use towels or put on gloves for this work.

  2. Remove jewelry or any contaminated clothing to avoid further burning and inflammation of the skin.

  3. Rinse off the affected area immediately with cold water.

  4. Loosely wrap the area with sterile gauze or a bandage.

  5. If required, you can even opt for pain relievers such as naproxen sodium, ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

  6. Consider taking a tetanus injection, but at the same time, ensure that your booster is up-to-date.

  7. Refrain from applying an antibiotic ointment over the burnt area or neutralizing it with an alkali or acid. This may aggravate the burn.

When should you seek an emergency care?

  1. When the person exhibits sign of shock such as shallow breathing, pale complexion or is experiencing bouts of fainting.

  2. When the chemical burn pierces through the upper layer of the skin, occupying an area of above 3 inches in diameter.

  3. When the chemical burn has spread to the buttocks, groin, face, feet, hands, eyes or even the limb.
