Your husband is most probably suffering from fungal infection. There are excellent ayurvedic medicines available for chronic skin diseases which give complete relief without reccurences if taken full course along with suggested diet restrictions. This occures due to lot of sweating so to prevent that he should take bath twice or thrice a day. He should keep the affected area dry by frequent application of abzorb powder. He should follow healthy diet such as lots of fruits vegetables salads and bland diet. He should avoid oily fatty spicy and sour food items. Avoid eating junk food and outside food. Avoid non veg and food made from besan maida and urad. Stop milk and milk products. Medication. Capsule neem 2-2 syrup purodil 2-2-2 triphala guggul 2-2-2 kaishor guggul 2-2-2 vidangatishta 2spoons twice orally with equal quantity of warm water. Take all these for 6 months. You can follow me up after a month.

I want to know how to give first aid to one who gets heart attack ?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

First aid for a person who suffers heart attack 1. Ask the person who had an attack to be calm. If he or she is already at a stage of calmness, that same person should be able to sustain that for a longer period. Allowing the person who had an attack to sit upright may also help. 2. In case the person who had an attack is wearing tight clothes, free him or her from it. Loose clothing, especially around the neck area, can help even out the patient's breathing. This would also help him or her to be in a more stabilized state. 3. Try to talk to the person who had an attack. Make inquiries about his or her medications. Ask about other medical precautions as well, if any. Meanwhile, knowing about his or her overall health condition may also help determine what your next step should be. 4. If the person who had the attack is unconscious, immediately call 911.5. An important part of heart attack first aid is conducting cpr. However, if you are not trained to do it, you might ask other people to do it, instead. If there is nobody else available, call a doctor and get specific instructions while waiting for the aid of the 911 crew. Things that you must not do while giving first aid in light of giving first aid treatment, you should also take note of the things that you should not do in case heart attack emergencies arise. Otherwise, the condition of the patient just might get worse. 1. Make it a point to stay with the victim. Do not leave his or her side even if you get anxious while waiting for help. 2. Do not wait for the symptoms to be more manageable because chances are, it will not be that way. In fact, if an attack is already occurring, the heart attack itself might worsen and become more severe. In such cases, death may be the consequence. 3. Do not give the person who had the attack anything to ingest by mouth. If the victim chokes on what you give, his or her condition is likely to worsen. Additionally, it may cause the symptoms of heart attack to worsen at the same time.

Early repolarization pattern in ecg is normally found in young persons. Its harmless. Do not worry. Its possible that you are having acidity. If you are still concerned get a troponin test done. If thats negative then stay assured of not having heart problem.

Dear lybrate-user, cholesterol medicine is given to patients who have moderate to high risk of developing heart problem. Risk is calculated from age, sex, history of diabetes, high bp, smoking, family history etc. Otherwise unless cholesterol value is very high no cholesterol medicine is required. Only diet and exercise will be enough. As regards diet she can take almost all home cooked foods. Avoid oily and high carb foods.
