Itching on my both legs.

MD - Pathology
General Physician,
It can be allergy due to some local problem or a part of generalised allergy. Could be your clothing irritating legs. May be hot weather. Do you have any rash? in any case anti allergic tablets and local application of calamine lotion will help. If persists after 3 days show it to dermatologist.

General Physician,
Thanks for your query. Every drughas some side effects which doesnt mean that you should not take it since everybody will get that side effect. Your doctor will be able to decide for every drug if the benefits are more better than adverse effects and treat accordingly. Please dont presume such things by reading somewhere. If you have any further query please ask.

Hi i Am 20 years old, continuously am getting cough. What should I do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
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.

Please give valuable suggestion abt how to get cure from this problem of scia...
Pain that travels from the lower back or from the hip through the back part of the thigh to the lower part of the leg or to the foot is usually very indicative of sciatica. Sciatica is not a disease in itself but a symptom of the sciatic nerve being irritated or compressed along its course. Homeopathy is able to treat the pain very effectively and is able to rectify the compression or irritation on the sciatic nerve. The key to prevent sciatica is to prevent any damage to your lower spine. 1.Exercising regularly - This can strengthen back and abdominal muscles, thus preventing damage to your vertebral column. 2.Good posture - Maintain a good posture while sitting and use an ergonomically designed chair which properly supports your hips and does not press upon your back of the thighs and knees while sitting. The Homeopathic treatment is completely safe without any side effects and proves to be of immense benefit in the long run. Consult me for further evaluation and treatment. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

I am 23 years female. I want the diet chart for my age?
Hello , hope you are doing good. 1. You need to add green leafy vegitables in your diet for best hemoglobin level. 2. Drink 2glass of milk for calcium which strength your bone. Female bones are weak compare to male. 3. Add more protein by eating atleast 2 eggs in a day. Wheat and soya also preferred. 4. Add dry fruits like badam for more fiber in your body, which helps you to avoid gas, obesity problems. Let me know if can help you with more information in my private consultation. Fee: 90/- rs only. Have a nice day.

I had breathing problem due to cough. What should I do?

CCEDM(DIABETES), MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. • Do steam inhalation once or twice daily Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily

The fever may be because of viral infection which is common now a days you may take tab paracetamol 500 mg three times a day. But in the mean time you should consult your family physician for better understanding of the problem. It is important to know whether you are having cough, cold etc and to examine to know your blood pressure etc.
