I've scabies for last year. I took treatment last year and then it was ok but now its coming back. What should I do?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Scabies is an itchy skin condition caused by the microscopic mite Sarcoptes scabei. It is common all over the world, and can affect anyone. Scabies spreads quickly in crowded conditions where there is frequent skin-to-skin contact between people. Hospitals, child-care centers, and nursing homes are examples. Scabies can easily infect sex partners and other household members. Sharing clothes, towels, and bedding can sometimes spread scabies. This can happen much more easily when the infested person has crusted scabies. You cannot get scabies from a pet. Pets get a different mite infection called mange. Symptoms are Pimple-like irritations or a rash Intense itching, especially at night Sores caused by scratching The infected person's clothes, bedding and towels should be washed in hot water and dried in a hot dryer. Treatment is also recommended for household members and sexual partners.Several lotions are available to treat scabies. Medicines that may be prescribed include: 5% permethrin cream: This is the most common treatment for scabies. It is safe for children as young as 1 month old and women who are pregnant.  25% benzyl benzoate lotion. 10% sulfur ointment.  10% crotamiton cream. 1% lindane lotion.

Haemorrhoids - Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Prevention

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Kota
Haemorrhoids - Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Prevention

Haemorrhoids (also known as piles) are swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum or anus. Typical symptoms are pain, itching and bleeding around the anal area. Treatment and prevention will often involve non-prescription ointments, other home treatments and lifestyle changes. Haemorrhoids that don’t clear up may require a visit to your doctor and, in some cases, minor surgery.

Causes

Haemorrhoids are caused by an increase in pressure in the lower rectum from: 

  • straining during bowel movements
  • sitting for long periods of time, especially on the toilet
  • chronic (long lasting) constipation or diarrhoea
  • being overweight or obese
  • pregnancy
  • anal intercourse
  • low-fibre diet
  • spinal cord injury
  • poor posture.

Haemorrhoids are common and occur in most people at some stage during their lives. They tend to occur more frequently later in life due to age-related weakening and stretching of the tissues supporting the veins in the rectum. 

Signs and symptoms

Symptoms often depend on whether a haemorrhoid is located on the inside or outside of the body. 

Internal haemorrhoids lie inside the rectum and usually do not cause discomfort. However, straining or irritation when passing a stool can damage the surface of a haemorrhoid causing it to bleed. Sometimes, straining can push an internal haemorrhoid through the anal opening resulting in a protruding or prolapsed haemorrhoid, which can cause pain and irritation. 

External haemorrhoids lie under the skin around the anus. When irritated they can itch or bleed. Blood can pool inside an external haemorrhoid and form a clot, which causes severe pain, swelling, and inflammation.

Signs and symptoms of haemorrhoids may include: 

  • pain or discomfort, especially when sitting
  • pain during bowel movements
  • itching or irritation around the anal region
  • bright red blood on your stools, toilet paper or in the toilet bowl
  • swelling around the anus
  • one or more lumps near the anus, which might be tender or painful.

Bleeding during bowel movements is the most common sign of haemorrhoids. Rectal bleeding can, however, indicate a more serious condition, such as bowel cancer or anal cancer.  You should consult your doctor if your haemorrhoids:

  • bleed frequently or excessively
  • do not respond to self-treatment
  • if haemorrhoid symptoms have been accompanied by an obvious change in bowel habits
  • if you are passing black or maroon-coloured stools
  • blood clots have formed
  • blood is mixed in with the stool.

Diagnosis

 A visual inspection should allow your physician to see if you have external haemorrhoids. 

Tests and procedures to diagnose internal haemorrhoids may include: 

  • a digital rectal examination in which your doctor inserts a lubricated gloved finger into your rectum to feel for anything unusual, such as growths
  • a visual inspection of the inside of your anal canal and rectum using a viewing device such as an anoscope, proctoscope or sigmoidscope
  • a colonoscopy may be performed to do a more extensive examination of your entire bowel (colon) if your signs and symptoms suggest that you might have another digestive system disease, or if you have risk factors for colorectal cancer

Treatment

Most cases of haemorrhoids can be self-treated. More serious or repeat cases may require medication or a surgical procedure. Haemorrhoids can recur after treatment; hence, they are controlled rather than cured. 

Self-treatment 

Home treatment is often all that is required to relieve mild pain, swelling, and inflammation associated with haemorrhoids. Home treatments include: 

  • use of non-prescription haemorrhoid ointments, creams, suppositories, or pads containing a mild corticosteroid, e.g. hydrocortisone, or witch hazel extract
  • soak the anal area in warm water for 10 to 15 minutes two or three times a day
  • use stool softeners, which help stools to be passed more easily
  • ensure that the anal area is kept clean by bathing or showering daily – soap is not necessary and the affected area can be dried with a hair dryer
  • use moist towelettes or wet toilet paper (that do not contain perfume or alcohol) rather than dry toilet paper, to help keep the anal area clean after passing a stool
  • applying ice packs or cold compresses on the affected area can relieve swelling
  • taking oral pain medication, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, can help to relieve discomfort.

Non-surgical and surgical procedures 

For an external haemorrhoid in which a clot has formed, prompt relief can be obtained from your doctor performing a simple incision to remove the clot. 

For persistent bleeding or painful haemorrhoids, the following non-surgical procedures to destroy the haemorrhoid can be performed in a doctor’s office:

  • rubber band ligation, involves using a rubber band to cut off the blood supply to the haemorrhoid causing it to shrivel and die
  • injection (sclerotherapy), involves injecting a substance into the haemorrhoid to make it harden and shrink
  • laser or infrared coagulation, which is a type of heat treatment that causes the haemorrhoid to harden and shrivel.
  • If non-surgical procedures are not successful or if the haemorrhoids are particularly large, one of the following surgical procedures may be necessary:
  • haemorrhoidectomy - removal of a haemorrhoid with a scalpel or laser
  • haemorrhoid stapling - removal of a haemorrhoid with a special staple gun that also inserts a ring of staples to close the wound and prevent bleeding. 

Prevention

Keeping your stools soft is the best way to prevent haemorrhoids from occurring. The following steps can help to prevent haemorrhoids from occurring and reduce symptoms of existing haemorrhoids:

  • eat high-fibre foods
  • drink plenty of fluids
  • consider using fibre supplements
  • avoid straining when on the toilet
  • go to the toilet as soon as you feel the urge
  • get plenty of exercise
  • avoid sitting for long periods.

The time taken in mastrubation and actual sex differs. Its always the time in actual sex is more than mastrubation. Because in mastrubation you are just jerking off to relieve yourself. You just wanna ejaculate. Your mind just wanna get things off.     But in actual sex lots of intimacy is involved. You are enjoying it you do not wanna this things to end. You are feeling your partner both physically and mentally. Your whole body is physically involved which not in mastrubation. Here the the sex is more mental. Your partner plays crucial role as you both are invovle in the act. Her intimacy level and her participation decides the time and when you both are in peak you ejaculate. Some times there are mismatches but that can be overcome by proper guidance. Normal average intercourse time is around 10 min to 20min depending on person to person and the average sex period incuding foreplay range from 30 min to 1 hour.

Sir I am face the problem of premature ejaculation and I am talk girl so liquid is come. More quantity.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Sir I am face the problem of premature ejaculation and I am talk girl so liquid is come. More quantity.
Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration or foreplay. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes. It may result in unsatisfactory sex for both partners. This can increase the anxiety that may add to the problem. It is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction. It has probably affected every man at some point in his life. Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can also cause it. In some cases, it may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines. Consult a psychiatrist online or in person Your doctor will discuss your medical and sexual history with you. He or she will do a thorough physical exam. Your doctor may want to talk to your partner also. Premature ejaculation can have many causes. So your doctor may order lab tests to rule out any other medical problem. In many cases premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. Your doctor may recommend that you and your partner practice certain techniques to help delay ejaculation, as well as medications are there to help. All the best.

My mother is snoring when she is sleeping in night and she is not aware of the sounds she is making loud sounds are made by her is this a disease or is there any solution for this to avoid making sounds.

MBBS, cc USG
General Physician, Gurgaon
I am giving you some health tips for snoring problem Lifestyle changes to stop snoring Lose weight. If you’re overweight Exercise exercising your arms, legs, and abs, for example, also leads to toning the muscles in your throat, which in turn can lead to less snoring Avoid sleeping pills, and sedatives because they relax the muscles in the throat Establish regular sleep patterns. Create a healthy bedtime ritual with your partner and stick to it Clear nasal passages. If you have a stuffy nose Keep bedroom air moist. Dry air can irritate membranes in the nose and throat, so if swollen nasal tissues are the problem, a humidifier may help. Change your sleeping position. Elevating your head four inches may ease breathing Sleep on your side instead of your back Consult chest Physician for further management, may require Sleep study test.

Hello lybrate-user, as am able to asses that your issue is more psychological rather than physical, may be you have some kind of anxiety issues back of your mind. Pain in neck and back of head may also a result of stress and anxiety. Lack of concentration is occur due to preoccupation of mind. That's why we feel distracted and disconnected to our surroundings, which leads to unnecessary frustration and anger. Do not feel low and you can recover easily from these kind of issues. You need some help from counselor or any mental health expert near by. But the very first thing accept your current condition and give yourself time to address the core issues. Thank You.
