Testis Problems in hindi - क्या होती है टेस्टिस की समस्या?

Testis Problems in hindi - क्या होती है टेस्टिस की समस्या?

इस धरती पर ईश्वर ने इंसान बनाए और उन्हें शक्ति दे दी कि वह खुद प्रजनन द्वारा अपनी जनसंख्या बढ़ाए। पुरुष और महिला दोनों के पास अपनी अपनी प्रजनन प्रणाली यानी अपना अपना रिप्रोडक्टिव सिस्टम है। और जब यह दोनों मिलते हैं तो जन्म होता है शिशु का। तो दोस्तों आज हम बात करेंगे पुरुषों के प्रजनन प्रणाली के एक सबसे अहम हिस्से के बारे में। जिसे हम अंडकोष यानी टेस्टिकल्स नाम से जानते हैं।

अंडकोष यानी टेस्टिस पुरुषों में पायी जाने वाली एक थैली है। ओवल आकार के 2 अंडकोष एक थैली के अंदर मौजूद होते हैं। अंडकोष लाखों छोटे-छोटे शुक्राणु कोशिकाएं यानी स्पर्म्स पैदा करते हैं और उन्हें सुरक्षित रखते हैं। इसके अलावा ये टेस्टोस्टेरॉन हार्मोन भी बनाते हैं, एक ऐसा हार्मोन जिसके कारण पुरुष शुक्राणु पैदा करते हैं। साथ ही टेस्टोस्टेरॉन मांसपेशियों और बालों के लिए जरूरी होता है। इसे मर्दाना हार्मोन भी कहते हैं। कई कारणों से टेस्टिस में दर्द होता है पर वह जानने से पहले हम यह जानेंगे कि टेस्टिकल दर्द क्या है।

क्या है टेस्टिकुलर दर्द

टेस्टिकुलर दर्द एक ऐसा दर्द है जो पुरुषों को एक या दोनों अंडकोष में होता है। इस दर्द की पैदावार कभी-कभार खुद टेस्टिकल्स से होती है, या कभी यह दर्द दूसरी स्थिति में भी उत्पन हो जाता है। जहाँ आपके अंडकोष की थैली में किसी प्रकार का तकलीफ होना या पेट में कोई तकलीफ होना, आपके टेस्टिकल्स के दर्द का कारण बन सकता हैं। टेस्टिकल्स में दर्द एक्यूट यानी काम समय के लिए या क्रोनिक यानी लंबे समय के लिए हो सकता है। वैसे तो कई सारे कारण होते हैं। टेस्टिकल्स में दर्द होने के पर यह जानना जरूरी है कि कुछ कारण ऐसे भी है  जिनके होने पर तुरंत इलाज करवाना जरूरी है। नहीं तो आपका अंडकोष हमेशा के लिए खराब हो सकता है। आइये जानते हैं किन कारणों से टेस्टिकल्स में दर्द हो सकता है।

1. चोट लगना
अंडकोष बहुत अधिक संवेदनशील होता है, और आसानी से उनको नुकसान पहुंचा सकता है। यदि इसपर हल्का सा भी दबाव पड़ता है तो इसमें दर्द हो सकता है। पुरानी चोट भी इसका दर्द बाद में उभार सकती है।

2. इंगुइनल हर्निया
इसे ग्रोइन हर्निया के नाम से भी जाना जाता है। इसमें छोटी आंत का कुछ भाग आपके अंडकोष में आकर दर्द और सूजन पैदा करता है। यह हर्निया अक्सर भारी सामान उठाने के कारण होता है। जिम करते समय सही लंगोट पहने भारी वजन उठाते हैं बिना वह अक्सर हर्निया का शिकार हो जाते हैं।

3. तोरसिओं
इस स्थिति में आपकी स्पेर्मटिक कोर्ड मुड जाती है। जिसके कारण टेस्टिकल्स की ओर जाने वाला रक्त प्रवाह बाधित हो जाता है। यह बहुत तेज दर्द का कारण बनता है। समय रहते इसका इलाज न हो तो अंडकोष हमेशा के लिए खराब भी हो सकता है।

4. अधिवृषण यानी एपीडिड्यमिटिस की समस्या
अधिवृषण एक नली जैसी होती है जो की आपके दोनों टेस्टिकल्स के पीछे की ओर स्थित होती है। इसमें अधिवृषण में जलन होने लगती है और सूजन भी आने लगती है। एपीडिड्यमिस में जलन होने के कई कारण हो सकते हैं जैसे चोट लगना, बैक्टीरिया द्वारा संक्रमण, सेक्स द्वारा फैलने वाला संक्रमण जिसे हम STD के नाम से जानते है। एपीडिड्यमिटिस ज्यादातर 18 से 36 वर्ष के पुरुषों में ज्यादा पाया जाता है।

5. ओरचीटिस
इस रोग में आपके टेस्टिकल्स में जलन होने लगती है, जो की बैक्टीरियल या वायरल संक्रमण के कारण होता है। यह जलन एक या दोनों अंडकोष में होती है और इसमें अंडकोष में सूजन और दर्द रहने लगता है। और यह ज्यादातर 45 या उससे बड़ी उम्र के पुरषों में अधिक देखने को मिलता है।

6. अन्य बीमारियां
पुरुष के अंडकोष में दर्द के लिए कई अन्य बीमारियां भी जिम्मेदार होती हैं। डाययबिटिक नेफ्रोपैथी के कारण अंडकोष की नसें क्षतिग्रस्त हो सकती हैं, यह भी दर्द का प्रमुख कारण बनता है। इसके अलावा क्लैमीडिया जैसे यौन संचारित रोग भी अंडकोष में दर्द के लिए जिम्मेदार होते हैं।

दर्द में राहत के उपाय 

1. आराम करें 
अंडकोष में दर्द और सुजन से ग्रसित लोगों को डॉक्टर की सलाह पर बेड रेस्ट जरूर करें और कोई ऐसा काम न करें जिससे आपके अंडकोष पर दबाव पड़े।

2. बर्फ का इस्तेमाल
दर्द होने पर बर्फ काफी कारगर इलाज है। बर्फ का टुकड़ा रुमाल या तौलिए में लपेटकर दर्द वाली जगह पर हर दो घंटे में थोड़ी-थोड़ी देर के लिए लगाने से आराम मिलता है। 

3. सही माप की लंगोट
हमेशा सही माप का अंडरवियर या लंगोट का इस्तेमाल करें। इससे अंडकोष को प्रयाप्त सहारा मिलता है और दर्द में राहत मिलती है।

4. वजन न उठाएं
यदि आपके अंडकोष में दर्द है तो ध्यान रखें कि कभी भी भारी भरकम बोझ न उठाएं और यदि जरुरी हो तो अपने घर वालों की मदद लें। इससे अंडकोष पर दबाव नहीं पड़ेगा और आराम मिलेगा।

5. चोट से बचना
चोट लगना एक बड़ा कारण है अंडकोष में दर्द या सूजन आने का। चोट कई प्रकार से लग सकती है। खेलों में चोट से बचने के लिए गार्ड या कप का इस्तेमाल करें और सपोर्टर जरुर पहनें।

6. सही समय पर इलाज
एपीडिड्यमिटिस, पथरी, और संक्रमण की स्तिथि में अपने डॉक्टर से जरुरी दर्द निवारक दवा और एंटीबायोटिक्स नियमित रूप से लें। इससे दर्द को कम करने में मदद मिलेगी।

7. सही आहार लें 
कम कोलेस्ट्रॉल वाला खाना खाइए और ज्यादा से ज्यादा पानी पिएं इससे दर्द में आराम मिलेगा।

8. प्रोटेक्टिव सेक्स
STD एक बड़ा कारण है अंडकोष की बीमारी का। इसलिए हमेशा सुरखित यौन संबंध बनाएं।

9. आयुर्वेद का सहारा
आयुर्वेद एक बहुत कारगर जरिया है। किसी भी प्रकार की परेशानियों का समाधान पाने के लिए। आयुर्वेद के अनुसार हल्दी का लेप अंडकोष के बढ़ने यानि सूजन को कम करने में आपकी मदद कर सकता है। अदरक के रस में शहद मिलाकर पीने से लाभ मिलता है। इसी प्रकार टमाटर, सेंधा नमक और अदरक का सलाद के रूप में सेवन करने से भी फायदा होता है।

Hair Growth Tips in hindi - बाल बढ़ाने के तरीके

हम सबसे ख़ास दिखें ये चाह हम सभी की होती है। और इस खासियत यानी सुन्दरता को बढाने में घने-लम्बे बाल अहम् रोल अदा करते है। सबका हेयर स्टक्चर अलग-अलग होता है। किसी के सर में कम बाल होते हैं तो कोई घने बालों को लहराता नजर आता है। पर सुंदर और घने बाल सभी को अच्छे लगते हैं चाहे वे पुरुष हो या महिला। सभी की चाह होती है घने बालों को अपने तरीके से सवारने सजाने की। पर आज के Pollution भरे माहौल और गलत Lifestyle के कारण बालों की दसा में सूधार कर पाना एक चैलेंज सा हो गया है।
लेकिन आपको चिंता करने की जरूरत नहीं आप बेझिझक ये चैलेंज एक्सेप्ट करें और हमारे बताए तरीको के साथ लग जाएं बालों की ग्रोथ की मुहिम पर। तो दोस्तों आइये हम जानते हैं कुछ घरेलु नुस्खे जिन्हें अपनाकर आप बालों को गिरने से रोकने के साथ ही उन्हें घना और लम्बा भी रख सकते हैं।

1. कोकोनट मिल्क 
एक ब्रश से अपने सर पर कोकोनट मिल्क लगाएं, और सर पर एक टॉवेल बांधकर करीब 20-25 मिनट के लिए छोड़ दें। फिर टॉवेल हटाएं और बालों को ठन्डे पानी से धो दें। बाद में शैम्पू कर लें, इस नुस्खे को हफ्ते में एक बार आजमाने से थोड़े ही दिनों में आपके बाल गिरना रुक जाएंगे। पर याद रहे, सर पर कोकोनट वाटर नहीं कोकोनट मिल्क लगाना है। जो नारियल को घिसने के बाद उसे निचोड़ने से निकलता है।

2. एलोवेरा 
अपने बालों को सादे पानी से अच्छी तरह धोएं। फिर एलोवेरा के पत्ते में से निकले गूदे से पूरे सर पर अच्छी तरह मालिश करें। 15 मिनट के बाद सादे पानी से सर को धो लें हफ्ते में तीन दिन सुबह-सुबह ये नुस्खा अपनाकर देखें। थोड़े ही दिनों में फर्क दिखने लगेगा।

3. आम
आम इसलिए कि इसमें नीम का इस्तेमाल करना है और नीम आपको हर जगह मिल जाएगी। नीम की पत्तियों को पानी में इतनी देर उबालें कि पानी आधा रह जाए। अब इसे ठंडा हो जाने दें। इस बचे हुए पानी को सर पर खूब अच्छी तरह मलें।इसे आप शैम्पू के बाद भी कर सकते हैं। हफ्ते में एक बार ये Formula आजमाएं.

4. आंवला 
आंवले की खूबियों से भला कौन अनजान है। हम सब बचपन से सुनते आए हैं कि आंवला बालों के लिए फायदेमंद होता है। पर आंवला इस्तेमाल करने का सही तरीका पता होना भी जरूरी है। थोड़े से सूखे हुए आंवले नारियल के तेल में इतनी देर उबालें कि तेल काला पड़ जाए। ठंडा होने पर इस तेल को किसी कांच की बोतल में रख लें। हफ्ते में दो बार इस तेल से सर की अच्छी तरह मालिश करें और 20 मिनट बाद शैम्पू कर लें। बहुत जल्द इसका आसार आपको समझ में आने लगेगा।

5. मेथी 
मेथी दाने तो आप किचन में इस्तेमाल ही करते हैं। दो चम्मच मेथी दाने नारियल के तेल में तल कर लें। चूल्हे से उतारकर इसे अच्छी तरह चलाते हुए ठंडा कर लें। ये मिश्रण थोड़ा सा लेकर हलके हाथों से कुछ देर बालों की जड़ों में मलें। और 20 से 25 मिनट बाद सादे पानी से सर धो लें। पर हाँ ऐसा महीने में एक या दो बार आजमाएं।

6. बीटरूट 
बीटरूट यानी चुकंदर के पत्ते, सबसे पहले Beet के थोड़े से पत्ते पानी में इतनी देर उबालें कि पानी आधा रह जाए। उबले हुए पत्तों को मेहंदी की पत्तियों के साथ पीसकर पेस्ट बना लें। इस पेस्ट से सर पर अच्छी तरह मालिश करें और 20 मिनट बाद सर धो डालें। हफ्ते में तीन बार ये नुस्खा आजमाएं और हेल्दी बाल पाएं।

7. ग्रीन टी 
गर्म पानी में ग्रीन टी के दो बैग डालें। पानी ठंडा हो जाने पर टी बैग निकाल लें और उस पानी को पूरे सर पर मलें। हफ्ते में दो बार इसे शैम्पू के बाद कंडीशनर के तौर पर इस्तेमाल कर सकते हैं।इससे बालों को मजबूती भी मिलेगी और चमक भी आएगी।

8. लहसुन 
रोज खाने में लहसुन की 4 से 5 कलियां खाने से बाल घने होते हैं। लहसुन का रस निकालकर सिर में लगाने से बाल उगने भी लगते हैं।

9. सीताफल 
सीताफल ऎसा फल है जो कई तरह से शरीर को पोषण देता है। सीताफल को खाने से भी आपके बाल कुछ दिनों में घने हो जाते हैं। सीताफल के बीज और बेर के बीज के पत्ते बराबर मात्रा में लेकर पीसकर बालों की जड़ों में लगाएं।फल का स्वाद जैसा मन खुश कर देता है पत्ता वैसे ही बालों को खुश कर देगा। 

10. मूली 
मूली हम सलाद के लिए खाते है। पर ध्यान रहे मूली बेहद फायदा करती है खासकर पेट और आपके बालो को घना बनाने के लिए। आधी से 1 मूली रोजाना दोपहर में खाना-खाने के बाद, कालीमिर्च के साथ नमक लगाकर खाने से बालों का रंग साफ होता है और बाल लंबे भी हो जाते हैं। इसका प्रयोग 3-4 महीने तक लगातार करें। 

11. ककड़ी 
ककड़ी में सिलिकन और सल्फर अधिक मात्रा में होता है जो बालों को घना बनाने में मदद करते है। इसलिए जिनके सर पर बाल कम हो उन्हें रोज ककड़ी खानी चाहिए इससे बाल घने हो जाते हैं। ककड़ी के रस से बालों को धोने से और ककड़ी, गाजर और पालक सबको मिलाकर रस पीने से बाल बढ़ते हैं।

तो आप बिंदास उन नुस्खों को अपनाएं और अपने बालों की ग्रोथ बढाएं पर ध्यान रहे अगर आपको लम्बे समय तक इन नुखों को आजमाकर भी फर्क ना नजर आए तो हेयर स्पेशलिस्ट से सम्पर्क करें।

5 Tips On Managing Running Injuries!

Running is a sport that many people indulge in, on a daily basis. For many professional athletes, running is also a part of their job. While it may be an extremely fulfilling experience in sheer physical terms, it also has varied implications in the long run as far as the health of your bones, joints and muscles go. Also, runners are constantly at the risk of getting injured, which can lead to many complications. Read on to know how you can protect the same with these five tips to avoid injuries.

  1. Warming Up and Stretching: Many injuries can happen when you do not stretch before you indulge in a strenuous activity like running. Warming up should be done with the help of a quick brisk walk that should happen a few minutes before you start running. Also, when you are stretching, you should not hold your breath and do it slowly without rushing yourself. Avoid stretching your muscles when they are cold. The stretching exercises should happen after the warm up.
  2. Strengthening Exercises: It is important to indulge in good amount of exercises that will strengthen your quads, calves and feet so that your muscles are strong enough to support your weight while you run without putting undue pressure on the joints, which can succumb to injuries and fractures.Strengthening exercises are given to hamstring muscles as well.
  3. Weight: Managing your weight is one of the most important parts of the regimen for a runner. If you are taking up running professionally or if you are doing it as exercise, you must ensure that your weight is at a normal level as per your ideal BMI so that you do not end up putting pressure on your knees. A good diet and plenty of exercise will help in maintaining a good weight.
  4. Footwear: Your shoes are one of the most important aspects when you are running. You must choose shoes that have a good cushion or gel inside. Be sure to select shoes that are designed for runners specifically, so that the shoes take on the shape of your feet and give you good balance and motion even as the friction with the ground happens. The correct footwear will support the running motion and keep injuries at bay.
  5. Stride Length and Impact: It is imperative to practice the correct stride length and impact when your feet hit the ground as this is where injuries most commonly happen. You will need to ensure that you get professional help from a trainer so that you can gauge and accordingly practice your stride length in keeping with your frame so that the impact is minimal on the rest of the body and its joints. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

6 Myths Debunked About Adult Acne!

MBBS, MD - Skin,VD & Leprosy

6 Myths Debunked About Adult Acne!

Acne can be frustrating and annoying. A lot of unnecessary chaos can be avoided if people get the facts right.

1. Myth: Adults do not suffer from acne problems
Truth: While acne outbreaks are common amongst teenagers, adults are not spared either. In adults, the acne problems are essentially of two types; the late onset acne and the persistent acne. In many cases, it has been observed that the acne problems appear at a later period, mostly after 23 to 25 years of age (late onset acne). At other times, the unwanted acne outbreaks that mark its appearance during the teenage years linger for a longer period (persistent acne type).

2. Myth: A person's eating habits and lifestyle has no role to play in acne
Truth:
Lifestyle and eating habits can influence a person's health. Excessive intake of sweets and simple carbohydrates can worsen the acne. Stress, fatigue, lack of proper sleep, can also aggravate the already frustrating acne problem.

3. Myth: Acne results from dirty skin, with adult men and women being equally affected
Truth: The Pilosebaceous unit of the skin plays a pivotal role in acne outbreaks. The oil producing gland (Sebaceous gland) of this unit acts as the main control. Certain hormones regulate the activity and size of this gland. An increase in the size of the sebaceous gland results in an increased oil secretion. The skin pores become very sticky. These pores serve as a host, into which the acne causing bacteria, P. acnes multiples.
Adult women are more prone to acne than their male counterparts. This is because, hormonal imbalance or alterations affects adult females more. Women often suffer from acne during menstruation.

4. Myth: Acne can spread from one person to another
Truth:
More than often, acne is seen as a contagious dermatological problem. Though caused by the bacteria P. acnes, acne is not contagious. It is rather foolish to maintain a distance from the affected individual.

5. Myth: Acne is a minor problem and needs no medical intervention
Truth:
Going for self-medication can do the acne more harm than good. Acne is influenced by a number of internal as well as external factors (stress, hormonal imbalance, unhealthy lifestyle). For an effective treatment, it is important to identify the root cause. It is best to consult a dermatologist at the earliest.

6. Myth: In case of acne, the face should be frequently washed and cleansed
Truth:
Ideally, the face should be washed twice daily with a gentle cleanser. Some people get eternal pleasure in squeezing the heads of the spot. This can damage your skin beyond repair.

Do not allow acne problems to affect your self-confidence. Acne can be cured. Do not fall for the baseless myths.

I am 27 years old unmarried. I had my first period when I was 15. I have irregular period cycle. I have one or two month gap in my periods and also have lower abdomen pain on first day of period. Will it be a problem in my pregnancy after marriage?

BHMS, PG(hom) London, MBA (Healthcare)
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
I am 27 years old unmarried. I had my first period when I was 15. I have irregular period cycle. I have one or two mo...
Hi The reasons for the irregular period are one of the following: Low functioning Thyroid, PCOD- polycystic ovarian disease, hormonal imbalance, obesity, depression or anxiety or any kind of mental stress. However, as long as you are ovulating you can still get pregnant so to regularise your period you need to undergo tests to clear these diagnoses and then start a specific treatment. If you have already been through all these tests and taken treatment without any success I would suggest that you take Jonosia Asoka mother tincture ten drops in 15 ml water three times on empty stomach for three days before the expected period date and also Senecio aureus 30 five pills weekly once for regularising your period Take Plenty of water and do exercise that makes you sweat for at least half an hour for five days a week minimum, take a diet rich in iron and vitamin D like dry fruits especially almonds, dates and figs, green leafy vegetables and fruits like papaya and pineapple.

Know More About Laser Hair Removal!

We all want to look our best. Being well dressed and presentable boosts our confidence and equips us to deal better with any professional or personal obligations that we may have. Someone who’s sharply dressed, well done hair, properly done eyebrows, no trace of facial or body hair, will make a better first impression than someone who’s unkempt. And it is a commonly agreed upon fact that the first impression on someone will speak volumes about our future interactions with them.

One of the most observable feature of our entire getup is facial and body hair. Imagine being completely updated with the latest trends while choosing an attire, but then your body hair shows through! It will be a little disconcerting and plays down all our efforts. Understandably, going to salons for waxing/threading or even tweezing on a regular basis can be time consuming and many times, we might also feel too lazy to step out for the sole purpose of hair removal. Rather than going to the parlour for hair removal every month (and in some case, once in every two weeks even), it makes more sense to find a more permanent solution to this. Opting for laser hair removal can rid us of this headache (Learn more about headache/migrain problem).

Laser hair removal is a modern technology developed for the increasingly chic and conscious population that likes to be always ready to go out without worrying about a disturbing view of stubble spoiling their look. Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that removes unwanted hair from our body without major side effects, by using a long pulsed laser. Lasers can cause localized damage by selectively heating dark matter or melanin. Hence, it targets the hair follicle, while not heating the rest of the skin. General side effects include mild itchiness, temporary redness and swelling, pain, tingling or a temporary feeling of numbness. (Learn more about Laser Hair Removal Treatment)

But, be careful as to do careful research before finalising your specialist. It’s imperative to hold thorough discussions with the team that carries out the hair removal and be assured of their competence. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

Migraine headaches

Migraine is a form of headache that is known as Sooryavata according to Ayurvedic principles. Such headaches worsen during sunrise, peak during the afternoon and tend to reduce during evening. Migraine occurs because of an excessive stimulation of blood vessels in the brain. A person affected with migraine is likely to experience nausea and vomiting, along with a throbbing headache on one side of the head.

Does Your Friend/Relative Have Binge Drinking Problems?

Does Your Friend/Relative Have Binge Drinking Problems?

Binge drinking is a problem that has been noticed nowadays in many teenagers and youngsters. Whether it is at an event or a party, drinking high doses of alcohol in one sitting is known as binge drinking.

Binge Drinking in Women Is Different from Men

Binge drinking for men is the consumption of more than five alcoholic beverages in one sitting. But the case is different for women. For women binge drinking is defined as a woman consuming more than four alcoholic beverages in a single sitting. Also, it has been found in a survey that almost 75% of the binge drinkers are college students. Among these, the ratio of men is much higher than women.

What Leads to Binge Drinking?

  1. Lack of control: One of the most common reasons is, of course, the lack of control. When such a person comes in contact with alcohol, they tend to over drink because they have no control over their drinking.
  2. The weekend fun: Secondly, another reason is seen in the case of youngsters between the age of 18 years to 35 years. These are youngsters who have a tendency of meeting friends and going out on weekends after the week’s toil. They know that after this weekend they will be able to enjoy their favorite bottle only in the next weekend. Hence, they binge drink.

Results of Binge Drinking

It becomes difficult to check how much alcohol will affect a person, because it depends on various factors, such as height, weight, age and also at times, alcohol tolerance of the person. But of course, there are some common results of binge drinking. Some of such results are:

  • Unintended and unprotected sex leading to pregnancy or even STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) in some cases 
  • Accidents that may lead to severe injuries and even death at times
  • Physical or mental assault of others that the person may regret later on.

When Is Help Required?

When the person has a habit of driving after drinking, neglecting family and doing harm to others as well, help is surely needed. Here, short 4-5 sessions with a therapist may help. A regular drinking habit is no doubt a reason to worry. But binge drinking is another reason that can lead to bigger problems and hence, needs to be examined closely too. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Cherry Hemangioma: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Dermatologist, Ahmedabad
Cherry Hemangioma: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Cherry Angiomas are benign skin growths comprised of abnormal proliferation of blood vessels. They are also alternatively known as Campbell de Morgan spots or senile angiomas. Cherry Angiomas are a rather common skin disorder.

The Cherry Angioma appears bright red, oval or circular in shape and are small in size. They can either be smooth, and close to the skin's surface, or they can be marginally raised. They mostly appear on the arms, shoulders and torso. If the Angioma is agitated (scratched, cut open or rubbed), it might result in intense bleeding in some cases.

Causes:
The exact cause of Cherry Angiomas is unknown. Genetic predispositions are usually believed to be a major cause. Other than that, pregnancy, climate and chemical exposure have also been said to cause Cherry Angiomas.
An obvious link, however, has been established between age and the appearance of Cherry Angiomas. Usually, people over 30 develop Cherry Angiomas, which only seem to augment in number and size with age.

Symptoms:
There are no other specific symptoms of Cherry Angiomas, except for the benign growths on the skin. The skin growths are usually characterised by:

  • Vivid, cherry-red colour
  • Small sizes
  • Smooth growths which are close to the skin's surface, or are raised

Treatment:
Cherry angiomas usually does not need any treatment, but if you want, you can remove them for cosmetic reasons. You can also remove the Cherry Angiomas if they appear in places on your body where they can get easily irritated (such as, on the hands), and cause bleeding.

Some methods of removing Cherry Angiomas include:

  1. Electro-cauterization: In this method, the angioma is burned off by an electric current that is passed through a tiny probe.
  2. Cryosurgery: In this procedure, the angioma is frozen with liquid nitrogen; the angioma is destroyed by the severe cold. This is a relatively easy and quick procedure.
  3. Laser surgery: In this procedure, pulsed dye laser is used to remove the angioma. The pulsed dye laser (PDL) is an undiluted yellow laser that is hot enough to damage the growth.
  4. Shave excision: In this procedure, the angioma is removed from the surface of the skin by a sharp razor. Shave excision is a substitute to invasive surgery that would require an incision to remove the growth and then sutures (stitches) to close the laceration. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Acne can be treated easily with facewash, tablets and creams. Some people have more oilyness on the face which results in breakouts. After completing treatment for controlling the active breakouts, tablets can be stopped and creams need to be continued to prevent recurrence. Diet and lifestyle modifications are also important. Please don't do any self treatment such as over the counter Steroid creams. Don't burst the pimples with your fingers as it can result in ugly scars. The marks left behind after the pimples heal can also be treated. Please send your photos through online consult option for detailed prescription and diet advice.

Menstrual Problems - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

Menstrual Problems - Homeopathic Treatment For It!

For some women, a period can be more than just uncomfortable. There are a number of menstrual problems that could affect women. These range from irregular periods to excessive bleeding and premenstrual syndrome. The good news is that homeopathy can be used to effectively treat these problems. Homeopathy is a holistic form of treatment that addresses the root cause of the problem instead of the symptoms. Additionally, it has negligible side effects.

Here are a few homeopathic forms of treatment for menstrual problems:

  1. Sepia: Sepia can be used to treat late menstruation as well as scanty blood flow. It is also helpful is the period is accompanied by pain and a sense of weight in the pelvic area and lower back. This can also be used to treat irritability and depression.
  2. Pulsatilla: Pulsatilla is helpful in cases where menstrual bleeding causes substantial weight fluctuations, bloating and water retention. It can also be used to treat irregular periods and scanty or excess blood flow. Pulsatilla is also used as a form of treatment for the severe griping pains that can accompany menstrual flow.
  3. Cimicifuga: This is used to treat irregular periods and painful periods. It also treats mental unrest, nervousness and irritability triggered by menstruation.
  4. Lycopodium: In some cases, delayed menses can last longer than normal and have an abnormally heavy blood flow. In such cases, lycopodium is an effective homeopathic remedy.
  5. Belladonna: Excessive menstrual bleeding and early menses can be treated with belladonna. This type of menses is also accompanied by intense pain that is relieved by standing and cramps in the back and arms. Belladonna is also extremely useful in acute cases of endometriosis and inflammation of the ovaries.
  6. Creosote: Excessive blood flow that is intermittent and preceded by abdominal bloating can be treated using Creosote. This blood flow is usually dark brown in colour and accompanied by an offensive odor. Creosote can also be used against ulcerations in the female genital organs, burning pain and soreness.
  7. Helonias: Pain extending from the back of the uterus and loss of muscle strength in the genital organs can be treated with helonias. It can also be used to treat leucorrhoea or dark, offensive vaginal discharge as well as displacement of the uterus.

When prescribing medication for a menstrual problem, a homeopathic doctor not only looks at the symptoms presented but also the personality and lifestyle of the patient. Hence what suits one person may not have the same effect on another. Hence, if you are facing a menstrual problem, it is best to consult a doctor at the earliest.

4 Ways To Treat Burns And Wounds!

4 Ways To Treat Burns And Wounds!

The branch of plastic surgery that is generally used for the treatment of burns and other wounds is known as reconstructive plastic surgery. There are numerous surgical methods that fall under this category, which is effectively used to treat these injuries and the related issues that they cause.

What are medical issues caused by burns and wounds?

Some of the most frequently occurring issues that stem from burns and similar wounds are as follows:


- Restriction of mobility

- Aesthetic disfigurement and scarring

- Loss of sensation in the affected area

The different issues are caused by varying kinds of burns and injuries and, hence, each case must be approached in a different manner for remedy.

Different kinds of plastic surgeries that are used for treatment

Depending on the nature of the injury, your plastic surgeon may opt for any of the following surgical methods for treating the problem.

1. Skin grafting

In this procedure, skin is removed from one part of the body and transplanted to the affected area. This method is used for the treatment of burns. There are two types of this surgical procedure - one removes a few layers from the dermis of the donor area (split-thickness graft) while the other removes the entire dermis (full-thickness graft). Recovery time depends on the kind of procedure used. Skin grafting is occasionally used for breast and nose reconstruction as well.

2. Microsurgery

This type of surgery makes the use of a microscope in reconstructive procedures for working on minuscule veins, arteries, and nerves for repairing damaged areas. Microsurgery is often used alongside other surgical procedures for re-attaching body parts, relieving paralysis of the face and in the reconstruction of breasts.

3. Tissue expansion

This method is used to induce the growth of extra skin on the body that can be used for reconstructive purposes. This is done by inserting a balloon expander underneath the skin that slowly gets filled with saline solution and makes the skin swell. This excess skin is then used for correction or reconstruction of the affected area.

4. Free flap procedure

This procedure involves the transfer of skin, bone, muscle and blood supply from the donor area to the damaged area for repairing purposes. Microsurgery is often performed alongside this treatment method, which is used most frequently for breast reconstruction or after the removal of cancer from the neck or head. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon.

Anxiety Disorder - 5 Symptoms Of It!

Anxiety is a very normal emotion, which gives rise to feelings of nervousness every now and then. An anxiety disorder is a serious medical condition in which people experience a high degree of distress and mental trauma, which causes difficulties in leading a normal life. People suffering from this medical condition experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness almost all the time. Here are the symptoms that indicate you're suffering from anxiety disorder.

1. Excessive worry - This condition persists if you worry about the day to day activities a bit too much on a regular basis. It is identified when you start taking too much stress about very petty things, which tends to affect you in an adverse manner. A noticeable sign of excessive worry can be too much fatigue.

2. Sleep problems - Problems falling asleep at the right time and problems in maintaining a sound sleep are two signs that indicate you have an anxiety disorder.

3. Irrational fears - This symptom is not generalized; instead, it is specific and subjective in relation to a particular thing or situation. The fears that are experienced under this category are sudden and unexpected in nature and there is no fixed rationale behind these fears.

4. Muscle tension - Muscle discomfort and pain is one of the leading physiological causes of an anxiety disorder. The pain felt is chronic and pervasive, and is very common among people facing situations of anxiety. If you are exposed to constant periods of anxiety, you will experience fatigue, muscle pains and unwillingness to work.

5. Chronic indigestion - Problems related to the digestive system are also a sign of anxiety disorder. In this case, you may face constant digestive problems accompanied by a common disorder called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). IBS refers to an anxiety situation in the digestive tract, which is characterized by stomach aches, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhea.

Apart from the above-mentioned symptoms, other symptoms of an anxiety disorder include stage fright, self- consciousness, panic attacks, memory flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviors, self- doubt, and such others. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Vaginal Hygiene - How To Maintain It?

Vaginal Hygiene - How To Maintain It?

Maintaining proper vaginal hygiene is imperative to ward off any sort of STDor STI, even before any sort of irritation, infection or disease occurs. The normal vaginal pH balance helps cater to the growth of useful bacteria. Some useful tips to maintain proper vaginal hygiene can be:

  1. Douching (spraying a mixture of water, baking soda, vinegar or iodine on the vaginal area) is strictly discouraged. It can interfere with the normal pH levels of the vagina and can make the area extremely acidic, which sets the stage for the growth of bacterial infections.

  2. A balanced, healthy, nutritious diet is recommended for a healthy vagina as well as for good reproductive health. Certain fluids such as cranberry juice can help prevent the onset of any yeast infection.

  3. Safe sex should be practised in order to keep harmful bacteria away. Using a condom during a sexual intercourse helps prevent the occurrence of any sort of STI or STD.

  4. Gynaecological check-ups should be done every four months or so to be on the safe side regarding any doubts about unhealthy vagina. Prevention is always better than cure in the long run.

  5. Petroleum jelly should not be used for lubrication during sexual intercourse as such fluids tend to damage the latex in the condom and may even lead to a possible infection.

  6. Clothes should be chosen carefully to keep the vaginal area clean and dry. Cotton underwear is generally the best option in this regard as it can help prevent any bacterial infection by keeping the area clean and dry.

  7. Certain simple sanitary habits such as changing of tampons or sanitary pads every four hour during one’s periods, proper washing of the genital area after relieving the bowels, can go a long way in nurturing the health of the vagina.

  8. Opt for gentle skin care products to wash the vaginal area as that area is extremely sensitive. Avoid scrubbing the vaginal area as well. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.
