Discolored Toes And Fingers? Don't Ignore!

Discolored Toes And Fingers? Don't Ignore!

The skin derives its color from melanocytes, which contain a pigment called melanin. Greater the content of melanin in the skin, darker is the complexion. The superficial blood vessels on the skin also add to the skin color.

There could, however, be discoloration which is often bluish, reddish, or a combination of these. This indicates underlying circulatory problems and is a cause for concern. If there was no direct impact or injury which has led to the discoloration, further investigation is required to rule out any serious underlying issue. Read on to know some of the common causes of discoloration and how to manage them.

Causes: While there could be transient reasons like touching something colorful, which left behind a color, the following circulatory problems can lead to bluish-reddish discoloration.

  1. Peripheral artery disease: PAD is where there is a narrowing of the blood vessels due to the accumulation of fatty deposits, in the form of plaque. This causes poor circulation and leads to discoloration
  2. Raynaud’s phenomenon: This is an autoimmune disorder where the arteries go into spasm and reduce blood flow, producing bluish tinged fingers and toes
  3. Blood clots: While blood clots are common due to direct injury in a particular area, sometimes blood clots can travel through circulation and get deposited in another area.
  4. Cyanosis: Cyanosis where there is reduced oxygen level and more of carbon dioxide level also leads to bluish discoloration, especially of the toes, fingers, and mucous membranes. This could be transient in extremely cold weather or high altitude, or could be due to circulatory system problems where the lung function is impaired.
  5. Anemia where the blood’s oxygen carrying capacity is reduced
  6. Heart valve diseases, usually congenital, leading to cyanosis in newborns

Symptoms: Because the body’s oxygen carrying capacity is reduced, there could be symptoms like:

  1. Difficulty breathing.
  2. Rapid rate of breathing.
  3. Chest pain.
  4. Shortness of breath.
  5. Extreme fatigue.
  6. Inability to perform daily routine tasks.
  7. Tingling and numbness of the fingers and toes.
  8. Confusion (due to reduced oxygen to the brain).

The cure for the same would depend on the underlying condition. For conditions like peripheral arterial disease and Raynaud’s, treatment is general, and not specific to discolored toes and fingers. Improvement in overall health will ensure discoloration disappears too.

Prevention involves improving the overall quality of life, including:

  1. Quit smoking, as it significantly improves circulation and provides more oxygen to the entire body.
  2. Control heart disease through a combination of diet and exercise.
  3. Dress warmly, especially if you are not tolerant to cold.
  4. Periodic medical check-ups to ensure overall health status is optimal.

Do not pick at or squeeze the pimples. That will leave behind more marks. Apply a gel based sunscreen in the daytime and kojic acid with vitamin C based gel in the night over the dark marks. As for the acne, it's better to get it evaluated before starting treatment.

Tonsils are in the throat, pharynx to be precise. A pimple around the penis can be an ulcer which in turn could be a sexually transmitted disease or due to trauma. There are some other conditions also which can present as a nodule or an ulcer.

I am 45 year old women and I have observed that a lumps in by left breast. So how I know what is this, or any problem in future?

If you have felt a lump in the breast, it is better to see a breast surgeon or a surgical oncologist. They would examine you and may ask for a mammogram and an ultrasound. If suspicious lump, they would do an fnac or core Biopsy of the same. There are many causes of breast lump. It could be a breast cyst, which is common in 40’s, which we would just aspirate if significant. Or it could be just the fibrocystic disease or fat necrosis, which is left alone if not causing pain. Rarely fibroadenomas may present with a lump, but the age group is usually younger (15-35). Sometimes phylloides tumor or Cancer can present with a lump. Given all the different causes of breast lump, it is best to let the experts decide. If you want to discuss the same, feel free to contact me directly for the same.

Opening The Door To Prostate Health And Enlargement Formulas

Opening The Door To Prostate Health and Enlargement Formulas

There is a little birdie that says Prostate Problems no longer affects only men over 40 but younger men as well. This statement is unfortunately true, however, one need not worry because medical science has improved and the years of research have now finally paid off.

We will 'pull the plug' on the bad news about Prostate Cancer and open the doors on ways to improve prostate health. If we understand the purpose of the prostate and the conditions that affect its proper functioning, we will be able to explain the causes, and then find the right formula or treatment for the prognosis. In addition, we will look further into preventative maintenance to keep the prostate healthy for optimum sexual experience. What better place to start our discussion than the bedroom 

The Condition Behind Doors

What happens in the bedroom should stay in the bedroom but sometimes when women are affected by low sexual performances; it is worthwhile discussing outside your private meeting place. Low performance could be the result of the dysfunction of the prostate. The prostate is an organ that expels the semen from the body when men ejaculate. It is found at the start of the urethra and is the size of a walnut, but may become enlarged when inflamed. There are various conditions that can cause prostate malfunction but before we go there, let us close the bedroom door to discuss privately, before more of the secret leaks out.

Mr. Romantic might be experiencing what is called Enlargement of the Prostate. This happens when the prostate is swollen and disrupts the flow of the fluid through the urethra and may trigger multiple symptoms that become complicated if not treated early. One dangerous possible outcome is prostatitis or Prostate Cancer. Anything that stops or slows down the natural expulsion of fluid from the body will lead to other serious complications, not to mention pain and discomfort. But what causes the prostate to grow out of its regular size?

Cause for Concern

The prostate is known to weigh between 20 and 30 grams but when it is inflamed, could weigh as much as 100 grams. Common factors that propagate the enlargement of the prostate are poor dieting and ignoring early warning signals.

Let us look at dieting and habits. One theory is that some of the foods we eat may contain oxidants which contribute to the rapid break down of cells in the prostate. The ability to maintain a proper balance in our hormones; testosterone and estrogen, could also be a factor of this great effect. When we fall short in feeding the prostate with proper nourishment, we are exposed to many conditions that affects the prostate including prostitis, benign prostate hyperplasia, and possible cancer.

The next possible cause could stem from ignoring warning signs. It is always necessary to pay a visit to the doctor if you are a male and approaching 40. Outside of that, once you see obvious signs, it is mandatory that you visit the doctor immediately to have him or her do a prostate exam. Yes, we all know how uncomfortable that procedure is but it's better to be safe than sorry. We will look at these symptoms that are deemed absolutely necessary for a checkup.

Remedies For Face Fat Reduction - चेहरे का मोटापा कम करने के तरीके

Remedies For Face Fat Reduction - चेहरे का मोटापा कम करने के तरीके

चेहरे ही हमारे सुन्दरता का प्रतिक है. इसलिए चेहरे की देखभाल और सुन्दरता के लिए हमलोग न जाने कौन-कौन सा तरीका अपनाते हैं. लेकिन कई लोगों का चेहरा मोटापे के कारण ठीक नहीं दीखता है. कह सकते हैं कि इससे उनके खूबसूरती में कमी आती है इसलिए इसे कम करना आवश्यक है. चेहरे के आस पास का हिस्सा सबसे नरम होता है. पेट और कमर के बाद सबसे ज्यादा फैट चेहरे पर भी जमा होता है. ज्यादा शराब पीना, डिहाईड्रेशन, अधूरी नींद, मोटापा और असंतुलित आहार के अलावा थायरॉयड हार्मोन की कमी या कुछ अनुवांशिक कारणों से भी चेहार सूजा हुआ नज़र आता है. चेहरे पर उपस्थित डबल चिन, आई बैग्स, और फूले गाल भी कई बार आपके चेहरे की खूबसूरती को कम करते हैं. इसमें गौर करने वाली बात ये है कि ऐसी शिकायत केवल मोटे लोगों को ही नहीं होती है. टोन्ड शरीर वालों को भी फेशियल फैट की समस्या होती है. इसमें सबसे बड़ी दिक्कत ये हैं कि मोटापा को तो कपड़ों से काफी हद तक कवर कर सकते हैं लेकिन चेहरे के मोटापे का क्या करें? इसके लिए ही हम आपको कुछ उपाय बताने जा रहे हैं. तो आइए चेहरे का मोटापा कम करने के तरीके जानें.
1. जीवनशैली को सुधारें
इसके लिए अनुवांशिक या हार्मोनल कारण तो जिम्मेदार हैं ही लेकिन इसके अलावा फेशियल फैट की समस्या हमारी बिगड़ी हुई जीवनशैली की भी देन होती है. इसलिए इसे दूर करने के लिए आपको अपनी जीवनशैली को सुधारना होगा.
2. कैल्शियम और विटामिन के सेवन से
सप्लीमेंट्स लेने की बजाय डेयरी प्रोडक्ट जैसे दूध, पनीर और दही के ज़रीए अपने डायट में कैलशियम की कमी को पूरा करें. इससे आपके फेशियल बोन्स मज़बूत होंगे और चेहरे पर जमा फैट कम होगा. साथ ही दिन में कम से कम 3 अलग-अलग तरह के फल खाएं.
3. पानी पिकरके
शरीर से अतिरिक्त वसा समेत तमाम हानिकारक चीज़ों का बाहर निकलते रहना ज़रूरी है. इसलिए जितना हो सके ज्यादा से ज्यादा पानी पीएं. गर्मियों में पानी का सेवन ज्यादा करें क्योंकि पसीने के कारण शरीर में पानी की कमी होती है.
4. नमक का सेवन कम करें
खाना कम नमक में पकाएं. हो सके तो सलाद में ऊपर से कच्चा नमक न लें. जंक फूड में सोडियम की मात्रा ज्यादा होती है, इनसे दूरी बनाएं. दरअसल, नमक में मौजूद सोडियम शरीर से पानी को बाहर नहीं जाने देता जिससे उसे डिटॉक्स करने में परेशानी होती है. नतीजतन, तमाम हानिकारक तत्व हमारे शरीर में जमा होने लगते हैं.
5. नियमित फेशियल करवाना
ये भी एक तरीका हो सकता हैं कि आप नियमति रूप से फेशियल कराते रहें. सही तरीके से किए गए फेशियल मसाज से चेहरे में खून का संचार बढ़ता है, मांसपेशियां मज़बूत होती हैं और यहां जमा फैट बर्न होता है.
6. पर्याप्त नींद लें
नींद की कमी से शरीर का तनाव बढ़ने के साथ ही शरीर में कई अन्य परेशानियाँ भी पैदा होती हैं. इसका असल ब्लड सर्कुलेशन पर भी पड़ता है और शरीर में फैट जमा होने लगता है. इसलिए रात में कम से कम 6-8 घंटे की नींद पूरी करें.
7. वर्जिश करें
आप जितनी कैलोरी का सेवन कर रहे हैं, उससे ज्यादा बर्न करें. हर दिन व्यायाम करें. 20 मिनट तक टहलने से आप कम से कम 250 कैलोरी बर्न कर सकते हैं. हो सके तो फिटनेस एक्सपर्ट से फेशियल एक्सरसाइज सीखें और हर दिन उसका अभ्यास करें. 
8. एल्कोहल से दूर रहें
अगर आप शराब पीते हैं या  'सोशल ऑब्लिगेशन' के चलते शराब पीने को मजबूर हैं, तो इसकी मात्रा कम कर दें. आप चाहें बीयर पी रहे हों या वोडका, इसका असर न सिर्फ आपके स्वास्थ्य पर पड़ेगा, बल्कि चेहरे में भी सूजन आ जाएगी. ऐसा इसलिए क्योंकि शराब पीने से शरीर डिहाइड्रेट होता है और पानी की कमी के चलते इसमें मौजूद हानिकारक तत्व शरीर के अलग अलग हिस्सों में जमा हो जाते हैं.
