I ave a serious problem about nose. Bleeding happen continuously. Within 5-7 days. What is d solution for this?

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Delhi
Bleeding from nose happens either due to dryness and crusting in the nose or maybe due to other illnesses with medical problem. Generally people of your age have a habit of excessively cleaning their noses with finger or tissue, this leads to erosion of the crust or fine lining of the nose and thus bleeding. If this is the case, then please keep your nose lubricated with some vaseline, cream etc and do not manipulate your nose. If this is not the case, you need to see an ent consult.

I have very much itching in my covered area, I wear cotton clothes normally. This itching is occurred only in summer or rainy days; after itching the targeted area turned into blood red and after first day it turns into black. My doctor gave me'Occlo GM' cream and keto soap but didn't work. I have this itching problem approximate 20 years. Please suggest me some solutions.

General Physician, Cuttack
1. Apply panderm plus ointment twice daily for (1-2 week) 2. Take one tablet of levocetrizine (5 mg) at bed time if itching is severe 3. Thoroughly dry the area after taking bath and keep it dry and sweat free. Apply talcum powder in the area 4. Use loose cotton under wear instead of tight synthetic one 5. Change the under wear daily and use clean and washed one 6. Maintain personal hygiene

My dad 58, is having high acidity from past some days. Dr. has given some medicines but once medicine is completed acidity reoccurs. What care should be taken for this to get cured and which food he should eat and which to avoid?

Ms. Counselling & Psychology, BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
If you have a problem in your gastrointestinal system, one of the first remedies you should always try is yogurt. Most of the issues in the gut have to do with a bacterial imbalance, too many or too few. Yogurt contains probiotics that stimulate the cultivation of beneficial bacteria, which will help keep the right levels of acid in the stomach, and prevent conditions like high acidity, and avoid spicy food and should have ginger tea daily and do consult a homeopath for complete cure.

Hi lybrate-user, your pregnancy tests done twice, both negative, so I do not think you are pregnant. But as you are worried, you may go for blood examination for beta hcg or tvs ultrasound for confirmation.

It won't effect your children but try to complete your family asap as being diabetic may affect your potency and virility in future. Moreover take hood care of your sugar levels to ensure longevity and to avoid future complications of diabetes.

I am 56 year old male. I am diabetic NID since last 15 years. Can exercise like swimming benefit me in control of the diabetes?

PGP In Diabetologist, Fellowship in non-invasive Cardiology, MD - Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Yes, definitely. Swimming and other outdoor activities like brisk walking or playing tennis/badminton can help in improving insulin sensitivity. One of the most powerful antidotes for insulin resistance is exercise. Regular exercise paired with healthful eating can quickly improve insulin sensitivity. This change causes a host of health benefits, from lowering body weight, blood sugar and blood pressure to improving lipids. Remember: walking for just 30 minutes most days is what's recommended and the easiest exercise for most people to fit in.
