There can be many causes of a headache such as physiological changes in the head, constriction of blood vessels, abnormal neuron activity, genetic causes, excessive smoking, excessive drinking, lack of water in the body, oversleeping, overuse of pain killers, eye strain, neck strain, and others. Ginger ginger can help reduce inflammation of the blood vessels in the head, thus providing relief from a headache. Mix equal parts of ginger juice and lemon juice. Consume it once or twice a day. Another option is to apply a paste of one teaspoon of dry ginger powder, also called sonth, and two tablespoons of water on the forehead for a few minutes. You can also boil ginger powder or raw ginger in water, and inhale the vapor. Chew one or two pieces of crystallized ginger candy.

I have health problems regarding anxiety and dehydration. What are these symptoms?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I have health problems regarding anxiety and dehydration. What are these symptoms?
Depression and anxiety disorders are different, but people with depression often experience symptoms similar to those of an anxiety disorder, such as nervousness, irritability, and problems sleeping and concentrating. But each disorder has its own causes and its own emotional and behavioral symptoms Depression and anxiety disorders are different, but people with depression often experience symptoms similar to those of an anxiety disorder, such as nervousness, irritability, and problems sleeping and concentrating. But each disorder has its own causes and its own emotional and behavioral symptoms. Many people who develop depression have a history of an anxiety disorder earlier in life. There is no evidence one disorder causes the other, but there is clear evidence that many people suffer from both disorders.Several forms of psychotherapy are effective. Of these, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) works to replace negative and unproductive thought patterns with more realistic and useful ones. These treatments focus on taking specific steps to overcome anxiety and depression. Treatment often involves facing one?s fears as part of the pathway to recovery. Interpersonal therapy and problem-solving therapy are also effective. Medications can also be useful. Symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders often occur together, and research shows that both respond to treatment with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) and serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) medications. YOu can ask me personally if you need prescription for medicine

If I smell my own armpits then I get sex mood y If I see girls blouse after that I were why It's normal or eels.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
If I smell my own armpits then I get sex mood y
If I see girls blouse after that I were why
It's normal or eels.
There are many men who get aroused by the smell of their own sweat.....and this is NORMAL....perhaps you like what you smell...... Its an inborn thing, perhaps you may have men aged your age who may not like their armpit smell.....this is ok too, or perhaps they are not keeping it hygenic.......and hence they get put off by the smell..... so its okay to have some arousal and sexy mood after smelling your own body part or armpit If you a girls blouse and want to wear it, it could signify that you like to cross dress ........THIS doesnot make you GAY!!!! Please remember while growing up there are many signals which create a deep impact on our psyche and it moulds our behaviour. At your age of 20, it is perfectly natural to have "ambisexual or bisexual beahviour and tendencies" Even if a man have sex with men it doesnt make him gay, it is just a passing phase. If you indulge in this cross dressing and make it a habit to masturbate ONLY after doing this ded, it may make you a bit uncomfortable to masturbate when the "blouse" is not there..... So dont fall into the trap......keep it away as far as possible and try to enjoy your sex and arousal at masturbation WITHOUT wearing the blouse....... DONT make it a habit. or it will be difficult to leave it later when u marry

Majority of the patients like your husband have erectile dysfunction secondary to long standing diabetes, stress, so he needs to be evaluated to find out the cause. Meanwhile while control diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension avoid smoking and alcohol. Exercise atleast one hour a day stress test to rule out cardiac disease if necessary, consult andrologist.

Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. 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.

It is always better to use a reliable contraception to avoid unwanted pregnancy. However if she has very regular cycles of 28-30 days then the first week after starting of periods is safest.

It seems you have fissure in umbilical cord which may be present right from birth or congenital. I am of the opinion you should have a mri scan done and go for surgery so that it cures permanently.
