There is no quick cure for lichen planus. However, it is likely to clear in time. Treatment aims to relieve itching and improve the appearance of the rash until it goes away. No treatment - is an option if symptoms are mild. Antihistamine medicines - may help to ease the itch. An antihistamine that makes you sleepy, taken at bedtime, may help you to sleep if the itch keeps you awake at night. Emollients - are often also given to provide moisture to your skin. These can also help to reduce the itching. A steroid cream or ointment - is commonly advised. Steroids reduce inflammation. The effect of steroid creams and ointments is variable. They work in many cases to ease itch but may not actually clear the rash. Steroid pastes or mouth washes - may help to ease painful mouth ulcers. A course of steroid tablets - may be advised if lichen planus is severe. This may clear, or greatly reduce, the rash. Steroid tablets taken for longer than a few weeks are not usually advised due to possible side-effects. Therefore, the rash may reappear after the tablets are stopped. However, a course of steroid tablets may help to tide you over a particularly bad spell. Immune modulators - such as imiquimod and levamisole may be advised by a specialist if lichen planus is severe. These work with the body's immune system to help fight damage to the skin. Skin irritation, headache, nausea and tiredness can be side-effects. Puva - this is a special light therapy that may be advised by a skin specialist if you have extensive and severe lichen plants. Laser treatment - low-dose lasers are sometimes used to treat lichen planus in the mouth. In general outlook is good as it is most of the times self limiting and goes away with time in around 6 months to 2 years.

Enjoy Your Motherhood - But It Is Important To Find A Balance!

Enjoy Your Motherhood - But It Is Important To Find A Balance!

Motherhood is one of the most honourable and challenging adventures of a woman’s life. Every mother in the world has her dreams of being a perfect mother and running a perfectly balanced household. The dream involves a spotless, sparkling clean beautiful home with shiny kitchen faucets, clean dishes, folded clothes, clean happy children and a happy satisfied husband. It would be great if you could all have that perfectly balanced picture perfect life, but unfortunately, that is not the case. Every single day, every mother is faced with a challenging question – what is more important, a clean house or time with the family, or time for herself.

  1. Set time aside to take care of yourself. Mothers who do not take care of themselves will eventually have nothing else to give. Investing in yourself is an investment in your family. You have to struggle with sleep deprivation and exhaustion, in addition to not having any time for your own self.
  2. You must not waste time on complaining about the heavy load. On the contrary, you should focus on finding ways to make it work. You must make a routine and follow it without fail for one month. Later, you can continue to add other routines one at a time to streamline the things. A regular routine will reduce the stress of last minute thinking and it will free up the time as well as mind for other activity.
  3. You must learn to say NO, without apologies, explanations, or guilt, to requests that infringe on family time. It is important for you to realize that by saying yes to one thing means saying no to something like a meaningful conversation with spouse, playing a game with their children, or catching up on laundry.
  4. Keep your expectations low as you will be pleasantly surprised when things work out better. Kids like to be kids and do not live their lives according to parent’s dreams. Some of us have always been a little bit of a control freak. We like to do things ourselves and we don’t like to wait for help. If you know that you can be distracted easily then you must try to do the most important thing in the day, before you give way to the other distractions and stresses of the day. If everything seems chaotic and you do not know where to start, then you should set your priorities and do the first things first.

Most of the time it is not the motherhood, it is the attitude. You should not make children an excuse for not challenging yourself to the fullest as you did when you were younger. Your passion for life and your dreams evaporate if you sit back and give up. Clothes will always need washing and the dishes will always need cleaning, but babies won’t always be babies. You would rather want the kids to remember their mother playing with them than remember that clean house was an order of the day.

It can be physically, emotionally and mentally draining to be a mother. It is also not a highly valued position in the world we live in. Your children will probably never be truly grateful for the service you render every day until they are out of the house, on their own and having children of their own.

For weight gain proper nutrition is a must. 1) you can start including more milk, cow ghee, fruits & vegetables in your diet. 2) stop eating junk & processed food. 3) make a habit of consuming one well ripen banana with a cup of warm milk with a tsp of ghee. 4) eat soaked dry grapes or dates soaked in warm milk over night. 5) boost up your apettite by working out daily for atleast 30 mins. 6) massaging whole body with vata balancing herbal oil (ksheerabala oil) is very beneficial 7) reducing stress level, sleeping comfortably for long hours and afternoon naps are very essential to increase body mass.

Arm Lift Surgery - What Patients Need To Know?

There are many changes that take place in our face and body as we start ageing. While the face starts to show the signs of ageing earliest-in the form of wrinkles and fine lines as well as a sagging chin and neck, the effect of ageing on the body might be slightly late. The skin may sag or you may end up putting on weight in various parts of the body like upper arms, which may look unsightly and bring down your level of confidence as well. Signs of ageing can often make you shy away from living your life to the fullest.

For the sagging upper arms, one can always get a procedure called an Arm lift. This is also called a Brachioplasty. This is a cosmetic procedure that can be conducted to tighten the skin of the arms from the elbow upwards. Let’s see how this procedure works.

What does it do?

  • Excess fat tends to accumulate in both arms togather with weight gain. Person face laxity in this area after massive weight loss or with body ageing.
  • Arm Lift is a surgical procedure to tighten the skin in the arms through the removal of excess fat deposits as well as skin.

Who can opt for this surgery?

Any person who is medically fit having arm disfigurement can opt for this procedure. Patients who have signs of ageing or excessive weight gain are the best candidates for this kind of surgery. Also, it may be used by the patients who are suffering from sagging skin after losing a great deal of weight which may lead to an appearance of bat’s wings on the sides.

How is this procedure conducted?

This surgical procedure is conducted by a Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon. It’s a day-care procedure. The doctor begins by marking the various areas of concern having excess fat and flabby skin. Thereafter, the doctor proceeds to remove the excess skin so that the arms are tightened getting more youthful look. This is done under anaesthesia to make patient pain-free. The skin that is removed is usually shaped like an ellipse. In many cases, there may be a need to conduct a liposuction if the patient has excess fat as well. Once the excess skin has been removed, skin edges are approximated with meticulous sutures with various Plastic Surgery techniques.

Recovery usually takes 5-7 days. Person can resume routine activities from very next day. Sometimes you might be advised a pressure garment for better outcome. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Why Is Cancer the Biggest Threat to India

Why Is Cancer the Biggest Threat to India

Cancer is the one of the biggest threat to the young Indian population because of the factors that cause cancer, but also due to late detection. However, certain bad habbits and the factors increase the risk of cancer in India.

Causes of cancer in India:

  1. Overpopulation and the problem of nutrition: As per records, India is the world's third most populous country. However, it lacks in resources to feed the multiplying number of mouths. Nutrition plays a key role in deciding the quality of a person's life. Nutrition has therefore emerged as an essential branch of research and medical care in the last few decades. Lack of nutrition directly results in weakened immunity. Your body becomes prone to diseases, some of which can be fatal. To fight off cancer cells, one must have a strong immune system that comes from the right kind of nutrition.
  2. Smoking is a recurrent habit among children and adults: Smoking can cause cancer. Every cigarette packet reads the same warning messages but it doesn't actually deter smokers in any way. Smoking is prevalent among people of all age groups in India. From poor children to conscious educated adults, all are seen smoking.
  3. A Tropical country and its woes: Tropical countries are known to face the wrath of the sun. While most places in central, western, partly eastern and southern India experience extremes of temperature in summer, other places with moderately hot summers are not exempted from the harmful UV rays. Ultraviolet rays can be very harmful for one's skin, as it can cause skin cancer. Indians have a high amount of melanin, which protects them against sun rays, but the threat exists nonetheless.
  4. The concept of fast food: A global economy has opened avenues awaiting your attention in the realm of food. To suit the tones and moods of a fast life, fast food has been made available to you. We take pride in consuming things that can be prepared in an instant: instant noodles, soups and even curries. Packaged food and junk food are sources of cancer cells.
  5. Lack of awareness regarding the most common types of cancer: Breast and cervical cancer are the two most common types of cancer eating away the health of Indians. The problem lies in being unaware about the root causes, symptoms and treatment procedures related to these kinds of cancer. Social repression turns health concerns into matters of insignificance. Women fear social alienation after coming in the open with their problems.
