Treatment Of Bunions

Treatment Of Bunions

Sometimes, the joint that connects the big toe to the feet may develop an unnatural hump. This condition is known as bunions. Sometimes, it may so happen that the big toe move towards the other toes, pushing the base of the toe outward, leading to the development of bunions. There are ways, by which you treat bunions. Some of them are-

  1. Medication: Visiting a doctor is the most prudent step to take in case you are suffering from bunions. The inflammation and the swelling that accompany bunions can be initially treated by medicines and pain relievers.
  2. Heating pad: Heating pad generally treats and manages pain by applying heat on the affected areas. In the case of bunions, heating pad has emerged as an effective way to deal with bunions.
  3. Ice pack: Working on a principle, which is the very reverse of heating pad, ice packs uses refrigerant gel or cold water to treat injuries. 
  4. Wearing the shoe of the right size: Bunions are generally the result of wearing ill-fitting shoes. Therefore, one of the easiest way to deal with it would probably be wearing the right size.
  5. Bunion pads: At the initial stages, a bunion can be treated by wearing a bunion pad. This will help to realign the toe that had deviated as well as reduce the ensuing pain.
  6. Foot exercises: Exercises have always proved to be an efficient way in dealing with various physical deformities, and a bunion is no different. Few foot exercises can work wonders in treating bunions.
  7. Surgery: This is used in the case of extreme situations. When the condition persists, then the intervention of a surgery becomes important to realign the affected toe.

There are some medicines which can reduce breast size little bit, but these have also some side effects. If you take any hormonal pills or eat soya products then avoid it.

It's fungal infection which is called tinea cruris. Homoeopathic medicines can cure this completely within short period of time. Nothing to worry. 100% rapid and effective results. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. Medicines like sulphur, urtica urens, rhustox, etc can cure this very fastly. External application not good to treat fungal infection which gives only a temporary relief. For permanent results you have to take medicines in proper dosage.

Vaginismus - Things You Should Be Aware of

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS

Vaginismus - Things You Should Be Aware of

Vaginismus is a condition characterized by significant pain in the vagina generally during sexual intercourse. This pain occurs on penetration due to the contraction of the vaginal muscles.

Causes

The exact cause of Vaginismus is not exactly known to the doctors. But some researchers suggests that the pain might result from severe anxiety or illogical fears before sex.

Vaginismus can be primary or secondary depending on the concerned woman’s previous sexual experiences. Vaginismus can be linked to an earlier sexually painful experience, sexual trauma or psychological factors. In some cases, the pain tends to exist without any direct physical cause. The causes of the pain might vary from women to women and might occur in some cases with only one specific partner and not with others.

Sometimes the pain might stem from underlying infections or any other underlying complications.

The symptoms of Vaginismus are as follows:

  1. Severe pain during intercourse.

  2. Severe pain during insertion of tampons or during any medical check-ups.

The following treatments can be useful to treat Vaginismus:

  1. If the pain arises due to anxiety or fear, counselling sessions can help you to a remedy.

  2. If the pain arises whenever something penetrates the vaginal walls, progressive desensitization can be useful to treat the pain. The process aims to loosen the vaginal muscles so that you don’t experience any pain during sexual intercourse.

Kegel exercises (at least 20 of them) can help in the initial stage to relax the vaginal muscles. After you exercise for a few days, you should try inserting one finger inside your vagina while doing the exercises. Try doing it gently and if it still hurts, try doing it with a lubricating jelly. This continuous procedure will help in the contraction of the vaginal muscles which eventually relax.

If the hymen is torn during the first intercourse then is there will be bleeding immediately or it can occur after two weeks? If any bleeding takes place after two weeks of having sex for the first time is there any chance of getting pregnancy? I'm confused I have my periods today before 14 days of my normal menstrual cycle. I have my last periods on 16th March and sex on 23rd March. He just rubbed it near my vagina and ejaculated some semen in the vagina. But I had no bleeding that time. I have washed off all the semen immediately. Today 2nd April I had my periods again. Is there any chance of pregnancy?

Bleeding before due date is not exactly a sign of pregnancy. But this csn b a ovulation bleed if it is spottinng, as it is occuring roughly 14-15 days after your periods. Not to worry for being pregnant but jnprotected sex during this time csn makeyou pregnant, even in non insertion of penis, pre ejection seminal fluid contains some sperm.

As you had menses which was heavy on first day you r not pregnant for sure. Even if menses are coming less how does it matter as your primary concern of not getting pregnant is not there any more.

It's difficult to ascertain fertile days with irregular periods. Infact you may need help with medicines to ovulate as you are having irregular periods. See a specialist to check that and Do hormonal tests and Ultrasound as advised

Indulge in more of foreplay. Still if you r having continuous pain then get one good vaginal ultrasound to rule our the possibility of rectovaginal endometriosis nodule. This nodule is very notorious for causing deep intense pain during intercourse.

Hello. Poly cystic ovarian disease means that there are fluid filled bags/ cysts in the ovary. In this condition, the patient has symptoms like putting on weight (which may explain" increase in stomach circumference"), pimples, increased facial hair, etc. The problem really comes up when the couple is trying to have a baby as the patient has irregular periods. So try and lose weight by cutting down on carbohydrates and regular exercise. For medical treatment you need an ultrasound scan of the abdomen and you need to consult a gynecologist. Hope this helps.
