Hello. Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Use home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days.

Hello, Apply Homoeopathic medicine – Thiosinaminum Q few drops mixed in a glycerin solution on scars that are visible (as it is less greasy, so is more easily absorbed into the skin). Also take Causticum 200 orally twice daily for 4weeks.

Apply freshly squeezed lemon juice to your lips and massage them gently. Follow this ritual every night before bed. Sugar scrub: Sugar works as an excellent scrub to exfoliate lips and also helps get rid of unwanted dead skin. Take three spoons of sugar and mix it with two spoons of butter to make a thick paste

I am 40 years aged with two children at 10 years and 7 years of age. I had a polypectomy surgery 10 days ago and I am advised to take thyronorm 12.5 mg tab for one month. I had antibiotics prescribed by doctor for a week. Now I have pain in anal region and it seems that anal fissure is developed. I couldn't pass stools though I took fiber diet and laxative for past two days. I couldn't pressure during bowl movement and feel severe pain. Could you please advise on getting rid of this pain as I am not in a condition to travel and consult the doctor who treated me for surgery.

Hi.• Drink a warm glass of water early in the morning.  • Eat fiber rich diet at least 10-12g of fiber daily; it is found in abundance in beans, oats, barley, apples and citrus fruits.  • At least one or two glasses of fluid should be taken along with every meal.  • Have steamed vegetables daily as it is, or blended into a soup form, this provides the necessary fiber to form the stools.  • Have a banana at breakfast daily. The bigger variety of banana is preferable for this condition  • Cut down on coffee, milk products.  • Regular walks and exercise helps this control this condition. Homoeopathic treatment:  Some dietary changes are suggested along with the medicine. Homoeopathic medicines being mild, with no side effects, are very effective both for the treatment of children and the aged. In cases of constipation due to irritable bowel syndrome, or an underlying thyroid issue, a complete constitutional treatment with proper dietary habits is very effective in cure of this condition. you can consult me online for homoeopathic treatment without side effects.

1. Almond Oil Almond oil is a great natural ingredient that is very beneficial for the delicate skin around your eyes. Regular usage of almond oil will help fade your under eye circles. In addition to almond oil, you can use vitamin E oil to eliminate dark circles under the eyes. 1. Before going to bed, apply a little almond oil over the dark circles and gently massage it into the skin. 2. Leave it on overnight. 3. The next morning, wash it off with cold water. 4. Follow this remedy daily until the dark circles disappear. 2. Cucumber Cucumbers have skin-lightening and mild astringent properties that help fix those raccoon eyes naturally. Plus, they have a soothing and refreshing effect. • Cut a fresh cucumber into thick slices and chill them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Put the slices onto the affected skin area for about 10 minutes. Wash the area with water. Repeat twice daily for about a week or more. • Another option is to mix cucumber juice with lemon juice in equal amounts. Use a cotton ball to apply the mixture on the affected skin. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it off with water. Follow this remedy daily for at least one week. 3. Raw Potato There are natural bleaching agents present in potato that can help lighten dark circles and get rid of puffiness around the eyes. Get Rid of Dark Circles Using this Potato Home Remedy • Grate one or two raw potatoes to extract the juice. Soak a cotton ball in the juice and place it over your closed eyes. Make sure the juice covers the dark circles under your eyes as well as the eyelids. Allow the juice to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse your eyelids well with cool water. Repeat once or twice daily for a few weeks. • Instead of potato juice, you can also use thick potato slices to remove dark circles.

Prostate Biopsies - Ways You Can Avoid It!

Prostate Biopsies - Ways You Can Avoid It!

One of the most common issues with old age in men is the enlarged prostate. Any difficulty with urination (no constant stream, difficulty initiating, or incomplete emptying of the bladder for instance), and the first suspect is an enlarged prostate. These symptoms are followed by a digital rectal exam to check for an enlarged prostate. Once confirmed, the next step is to check for levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA). If both the exam and the PSA are positive, it could mean prostate cancer. As with any cancer, it is believed that sooner it is diagnosed and the treatment is started, the better.

Historically, the best way to rule out the prostate cancer had been to do a prostate biopsy. This is a minor invasive procedure, wherein biopsies are taken from various regions of the prostate which are known to develop cancer (about 12). A disadvantage of this procedure includes missing out on the front part of the prostate which can also develop cancer. Secondly, it is not a very pleasant experience and given a chance, most men would not want to have it done.

There is good news for these men who would like to avoid prostate biopsies. The first is the multiparametric MRI which uses no x-rays and is considered very safe with extremely accurate results. This MRI exam requires about an hour, and once the images are obtained, the doctor will analyse these images and check for several parameters to assess for prostate cancer. The absence of cancer can be confirmed with up to 90% accuracy, which is far greater than with usual biopsies. If there is a possibility of cancer, then a biopsy can be done to confirm it.

Also, these images indicate the exact region where cancer likely is, and this guides the doctor to biopsy only where absolutely essential. The chances of false positive and false negative results are reduced drastically. The one disadvantage here is that MRI detected biopsies usually tend to be of a higher grade which requires immediate treatment.

Another way to reduce chances of the biopsy by 30% to 50% is by the 4K test. It helps detect a variety of prostate issues including cancer. It can be used once higher levels of PSA is identified and before going for a biopsy. It combined 4 prostate-specific biomarkers with clinical information to accurately provide men with a risk of developing prostate cancer. It can be used even after negative biopsies to confirm the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

These two measures can drastically reduce the incidence of prostate biopsies, which is neither pleasant for the patient nor very effective for the doctor.

Gastric Bypass Procedure - Precautions and Associated Risks!

Gastric Bypass Procedure - Precautions and Associated Risks!

The risk of developing heart problems has increased to a great extent and this is mainly due to obesity, which leads to other diseases. A gastric bypass surgery is a medical procedure, which is commonly known as Roux en-Y surgery. It aids in reducing the size of the stomach. The reduction in the size of the stomach makes an individual feel full even when they have eaten very little.

Gastric Bypass Procedure
The stomach bypass surgery is generally known as a bariatric surgery and it guarantees weight loss of about 30-40% within a year. For this procedure, the patient has to be in the hospital for 4-5 days and it takes about 2-3 hours for the medical procedure. It is through this procedure that the size of the stomach is reduced permanently and is performed laparoscopically.

Five small holes are made in the stomach under general anaesthesia. The procedure is conducted only after tests like ECG, blood and urine tests, chest X-Ray chest, abdominal scan and echocardiogram are carried out.

The patient can be discharged from the medical centre on the fourth day. However, it is necessary that calcium, vitamins and supplements are included in the diet plan, mainly to prevent malnourishment and tiredness. In the medical procedure, the surgeon divides the stomach into two sections using surgical staples. The sections are divided into a small upper pouch and a large remnant. The medical procedure makes use of surgical staples, which is why the procedure is sometimes referred to as stomach stapling.

The small intestine is re-arranged in a manner that the stomach pouches are connected to the intestine. The intake of food is reduced by the reduction in the functional capacity of the stomach and by the re-arrangement of the small intestine that causes food to go through the first portion of the small intestine. The procedure is mainly targeted for people with body mass index of 50 and above. It is important that the individual should not drink water for next 24 hours of surgery.

Benefits of Gastric Bypass Procedure
Results in reduced calorie absorption and helps in weight loss. It is generally advised for people who are unable to accomplish weight loss through diet and exercise.

Risks involved in gastric bypass procedure

  1. Inflammation of the stomach lining
  2. Nausea and vomiting
  3. Bleeding
  4. Nutritional deficiency
  5. Development of gallstones. This occurs mainly due to loss of significant weight within a short span of time.

The procedure is a little expensive, but it is a reliable medical procedure for weight loss. It is always better to know about the risks involved in this surgery before opting for a weight loss program. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
