It is a kind of fungal infections, most common infections found in skin, they are little difficult to remove bcz they remain in the skin where blood supply is very little, so it will take time to remove. If you want to cure you have to follow few medicines for 1-2 weeks (it is contaminative disease, may spreads to your near & dear one). please upload it’s photo.

Hi Doctors My question is my sperm (vire) bahut patla hi sperm ko gada karne ki koi dava batane ki krpa kare.

Homeopath,
Hi Doctors  My question is my sperm  (vire) bahut patla hi  sperm ko gada karne ki koi dava batane ki krpa kare.
Dear lybrate user, a single sperm cell takes about 4 months to mature fully before it is being ejaculated. So I would request to continue the following medication for at least 6 months:- 1) add 5 drops of each of homoeopathic selenium 1m + homoeopathic aurum met 1m + homoeopathic zincum met 1m in a glass of water & drink it early morning before brushing your teeth daily. 2) mix 1 tablespoon of ayurvedic dhatupaushtik churna in a glass of lukewarm milk & drink it after breakfast daily. 3) take 30 drops of homoeopathic sterlin-m (repl company) with water after lunch daily. 4) after dinner mix 4 pills of unani jiriyani with 1 tablespoon of unani majun arad khurma in a glass of lukewarm milk & drink it before going to bed. This combination of homeo-herbal-unani remedies have effectively increased the sperm count in about 95% of patients who are suffering from oligospermia as per my experience. Along with the aforesaid medications follow the precautions given below for effective results:- 1) you should abstain from any sexual intercourse or masturbation during the first three months of medication 2) avoid wearing tight underwear 3) avoid driving car/bike for more than 30 minutes continuously 4) avoid any type of addiction if you have any. You have to continue the medication for 6 months continuously but I advise you to check your sperm count by conducting semen analysis after every three months of the aforesaid medication in order to know the progress.

My mom was affected with SAH and later got affected by vasospasm. Right side is paralysed. Latest CT report shows that there is a hydrocephalus formation. Doctor is advising for a surgery. My Question is that we do not have a reclining bed at home and we are giving food through a rayls tube and she is always lying down even when we are feeding her. Does this affect in any way?

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
Hydrocephalus may need a shunt procedure to keep intracranial pressure normal. Continuously in bed may cause bed sores and bladder infection if regular posture changing is not attended. If her bladder is catheterized, outer urine bag emptying should be done properly so that urine from bag does not return through catheter in to the urinary bladder. Apply talcum powder to the back and keep the skin dry, especially in these days of summer.

I am having severe migraine since childhood but it occur only once in a month. How can I prevent it from happening again and again?

B H M S, MD
Homeopath, Thrissur
Migraine is vascular headache which occurs due to spasm of blood vessels of head and brain. Medicines are now available to give relief but will not prevent or cure migraine. Homoeopathy has much more drugs and the suitable drug will eradicate the migraine completely and the suitability of a drug has to be ascertained by studying the genetic make up of a person.

Dear, sleep is a blessing. If a person is able to sleep about 6 hours per day without any disturbance, he is considered blessed. I see you are stressed because of your job. The body rhytm must have changed because of the sleep schedule. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hello. My mother age is nearly 55 years. She is suffering from hypertrophy of turbinates in nose. She is having problem of blockage of air during night. I prescribed her fluticasone.

Enlarged inferior turbinates are one of the causes for blocking of the nose. A steroid nasal spray helps to a certain extent but the mechanical problem has to be rectified. Turbinectomy (trimming of the turbinates) will help by allowing more air flow inside the nostrils & the blocking will come down considerably. Medication will only work if you have an allergic component. Consult an ent surgeon who will diagnose & treat you accordingly.

I ate an entire radish, now I have no taste in the front part of my tongue, it's been around 48 hours since this happened. What should I do?

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Gorakhpur
Put sugar crystals on the front part of the tongue. If you can feel the sweet taste, there is no problem it will return to normal once taste buds get sensitized again. If not, poke your anterior tongue with sharp instrument/ needle carefully. See if you can feel the sensation. If you can it is against ok. If not, you can contact me personally. THANK YOU.

My mother, 78 years, has been diagnosed with can pancreatitis and malignant ascites. Doctors have only suggested palliative care and symptomatic treatment to improve her quality of life. We want to have suggestions on 1. What should be the best nutritional diet and what supplements need to be given. 2. When do you suggest paracentesis or ascites tapping. Is it helpful? Thank you very much for all your help and advice.

MCh HPB Surgery, Fellow, European Board of Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Give her normal diet according to her choice and tolerance. You can give a multivitamin supplement and also any protein powder like Ensure etc. Tapping is required if ascites is so much that it hampers her breathing especially when lying down

There are several things you can do to prevent an episode of acidity like: Avoid alcohol. Normally alcohol in moderation is well tolerated but for people prone to acidity even a small amount of alcohol can cause discomfort. Avoid smoking .The nicotine in the tobacco affects the opening and closing of the food pipe allowing back flow of the normal stomach acid into the food pipe. Eat small meals. Instead of 3 big meals, have 5 small meals every 3-4 hours. Eat slowly. Don’t sleep on a full stomach. Try to have an early dinner. Make sure there is a gap of 3 hours between your last meal and bed time. Wear loose-fitting clothes. Avoid certain known foods which cause acidity like, coffee, tea, colas, and citrus fruits, oily and spicy food. If your weight is high – losing a few kilos will reduce acidity too. Keep a gap of 2 hours between exercise and meals. Drink at least 3 litres of water every day. Try meditation and yoga to minimise daily stress.

How To Manage Peptic Ulcers?

MBBS, MD - General Medicine, FCCS,USA, DIPLOMA IN HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT, POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN JOURNALISM AND MASS COMMUNICATION
Sexologist, Jaipur
How To Manage Peptic Ulcers?

A peptic ulcer is usually found in the duodenum, or the first part of the small intestine. These ulcers can also be found in the delicate stomach lining near this region. These are usually painful sores that are caused due to too much acid production in the stomach, as well as excessive smoking and alcohol consumption. The symptoms generally include heartburn, bloating, nausea, vomiting, and even blood discharge in stool and vomiting. So how can you treat these ulcers? Here's a short list of ways to do so.

Medication: The most common way of treating peptic ulcers is to ingest proton pump inhibitors which can be prescribed by a general physician. These medicines will effectively stop the production of acid and reflux in the gastroesophageal band, so as to prevent the growth and production of such ulcers. Antibiotics can also help, especially in severe cases where there is a risk of infection due to the presence of these ulcers.

Upper Endoscopy and Surgery: For severe cases where there is bleeding in the peptic ulcers, an upper endoscopy may also be conducted. This quick procedure can give relief from the bleeding. Also, many specialists might recommend surgery so as to treat an ulcer that has punched a hole in the stomach's wall, in which case the persistent bleeding cannot be stemmed even with an upper endoscopy.

Lifestyle Choices: The presence of a peptic ulcer usually points to tobacco and alcohol abuse. If you happen to be over 50 years of age and are busy drinking copious amounts of alcohol every day and even chain smoking, then you may be at risk. It is best to stop such abuse by giving up smoking and drinking so as to ensure that the peptic ulcer can be treated and does not become a fatality. Also, drinking plenty of water and eating a proper balanced diet along with exercise are some of the best ways of treating these ulcers.

Side Effects: Peptic ulcers may also arise as a side effect of having pain killers too frequently. So it is important to stay away from medication that gives rise to this kind of reaction in the body.

Managing and treating peptic ulcers is a matter of getting the right tests done for diagnosis before discussing further medication or surgery based treatment for the ulcer so that it does not pose any grave danger to the patient's body. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Fatty liver is due to fat deposition in liver cells. Liver enzyme are also raised which is indicative of liver derangement. You should reduce your weight and restrict fatty diet. Exercise daily atlas 30 mt will show you the results. Only medicine will not going to help.

Dear pt, its time to understand that infections are more common with anal sex, and hence you are suffering from redness and itching as well as burning sensation. These are characteristic signs of inflammation, and you can get rid of these problem if you do not have sex for couple of days. No medicines required. If in case, this problem doesn't resolve byitself, you can revert back to me, for herbal remedy solutions. Take care.
