Rhinitis is an irritable medical condition where the mucous lining of a person's nose swells up. The term is more of a category and less of a definitive way to describe something specific. Rhinitis involves a host of other conditions that affect the mucous membranes of your nose. If you were not aware, common cold is also a kind of rhinitis. Rhinitis can cause acute touchiness in the inner lining of the nose leading to continuous discharges from one's nose. It can also lead to clogging of your nose or inflammation of the internal tissues.
Rhinitis can be divided under two main types; allergic and non- allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis, popularly known as hay fever is caused due to contact with allergens that are usually undamaging. However, in case of non- allergic rhinitis the symptoms take after that of the allergic type but no particular causal factor can be identified.
Factors that can increase your propensity to suffer from rhinitis of any kind are:
- Pollen from flowers
- Inhaling certain substances can be harmful; smell of certain chemicals is bad too.
- Both active as well as passive smoking can be detrimental
- High levels of air pollution contributes to the risk
- Weather conditions affect your health; a windy yet humid weather can aggravate rhinitis.
Common symptoms of rhinitis can be listed as below:
- A person suffering from this condition might catch a cold all of a sudden.
- People, usually little children, might even face high fevers.
- Your nose tends to be runny. After the infection subsides, chances of a thick, sticky discharge are more.
- Exhaustion is also felt in combination with headaches and teary eyes.
- The nature of your nasal discharge tells the doctor if you are suffering from an allergy or from a viral infection.
A few preventive measures to aid you against rhinitis:
- Rhinitis can be communicable and in most cases it is so. Therefore a person should not share his or her utensils and other personal things such as towels or handkerchiefs with any other person.
- One should not be in close proximity of another infected person.
- Hands are the most common sources of infection. One must wash his or her unclean hands before touching the face. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Ent Specialist.

As many as 30-40 % men across the world including India experience problem of PE at some time of life. In Part 1, we learnt about the condition called Premature Ejaculation (PE). In this 2nd part, let’s understand about it’s diagnosis & types of PE - why and how it happens.
How to Diagnose PE:
The specific criteria for premature (early) ejaculation are as follows:
- In almost 75-100% sexual activity, the experience of ejaculation occurring during sexual intercourse within 1 minute after vaginal penetration and before the individual wishes it.
- The problem has persisted for at least 6 months and is a cause of mental stress to the person.
- The dysfunction cannot be better explained by any other nonsexual mental disorder, any medical disease, the effects of a drug or medication, etc
Severity of PE:
The severity of premature (early) ejaculation is broadly defined as follows:
- Mild (occurring within approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute of vaginal penetration)
- Moderate (occurring within approximately 15-30 seconds of vaginal penetration)
- Severe (occurring even before sexual activity, at the start of sexual activity, or within approximately 15 seconds of vaginal penetration). In such cases conception will not be possible unless artificial insemination is used.
TYPES and Characteristics of P.E :
Premature ejaculation can be Chronic (lifelong) or Acquired (recent).
- Chronic PE: With chronic (lifelong) premature ejaculation, the person has been experiencing premature ejaculation since he became sexually active (ie, post puberty).
- Acquired PE: Acquired (recent) premature ejaculation means that the condition began in an individual who previously experienced an acceptable level of ejaculatory control and only recently has developed PE.
What are the Causes?
The causes of PE can be divided into two broad sub-heads, which are psychological or biological cause:
1. Psychological Causes:
Premature ejaculation is believed to be a psychological problem and does not represent any known organic / physical disease involving the male reproductive organs or any known defect in the brain or nervous system. It is usually due to a pattern that is hard to change and is a result of your previous sexual experiences.
One of the most common reason is childhood habit of reaching climax/ ejaculation quickly because of fear of discovery when masturbating or during early sexual experiences with a female partner. This pattern of rapid attainment of sexual release is difficult to change in later stage of life (in marriage or long-term relationships).
Other reasons are situations in which one may have hurried climax/ ejaculation in order to hide any problem or feelings of guilt that make you rush through sexual encounters. Also, psychological causes include anxiety and relationship issues which can also result from deep anxiety about sex that relates to bad experiences encountered by the patient during development (eg: incest, sexual assault, conflict with parents, etc ).
2. Biological Causes:
A number of researchers have found differences in nervous stimulations and hormonal differences in men who experience premature ejaculation compared with individuals who do not.
Some believe that some men have hyper-excitability or oversensitivity of their genitalia.
Abnormal functioning of the ejaculatory system can be attributed to:
- Thyroid problems; infection or inflammation of the urethra or prostate.
- Nerve damage occurring due to trauma or surgery (a very rare cause).
- Abnormal levels of hormones and/or neurotransmitters (chemicals present in the brain)
- Higher free and total testosterone levels or varied other biochemical markers

Penis Protection Mistakes - 6 Jock Strap Fails That Could Wreck the Penis
A jock strap is designed to protect the penis and testicles from injury when some sort of athletic activity is in progress and the action is fast and furious. Since a jock strap keeps delicate tissues tucked up snug against the body, and perhaps even protected by a plastic cup, a man can play the day away without worrying overly about penis care at the end of it all. However, this intense protection can only be provided if men choose the proper type of jock strap, and unfortunately, men make these 6 support mistakes over and over again, leaving the equipment vulnerable to all kinds of injuries:
1. Not Wearing One at All
Obviously, the biggest mistake a man can make when it comes to his athletic supporter is refusing to wear the product at all. These athletes may think their reflexes are so sharp that they'll be able to deflect a projectile with a hand or a thigh, making the extra underwear layer unnecessary. Unfortunately, these men might quickly find out that their reflexes aren't as finely honed as they might believe. When they're led, limping, off the field of play, these men might wish for a jock strap do-over.
2. Skipping a Cup When It's Needed
A standard jock strap provides plenty of support, but sliding a cup into the front of the sling adds an extra layer of protection that can deflect flying objects. That plastic addition can be uncomfortable, but it's vital when men are playing sports like:
3. Leaving the Cup in for All Sports
Some sports involve a lot of running, with very little chance of a direct hit. Leaving the cup in place during these activities could lead to serious chafing and discomfort. Running in track-and-field events, for example, or flying up and down the basketball court, might not require the help of a cup, but a standardized jock strap is still a suggested part of a man's wardrobe to keep the testicles tucked up against the body.
4. Choosing a Piece With a Flimsy Waistband
Products with razor-thin waistbands can look stylish, highlighting a man's toned abs and rolling thigh muscles. However, these products can also shift and sway, marginalizing the protection they can provide. In general, products with thick waistbands tend to stay in place just a little better during periods of heavy activity, and while they might not be as visually appealing, they might offer a deeper level of protection.
5. Looking for Loose Leg Straps
Sure, it might be uncomfortable for men to deal with the thin elastic threads that come on most jock straps. After all, most men aren't accustomed to dealing with elastic back there, and they might mitigate their discomfort by choosing a product with loose, floppy bands. Unfortunately, when the bands are too loose, they tend to twist and roll, and that can pull a strap out of place, leaving the jewels open to serious injury.
6. Refusing to Try the Fit.
Jock straps shouldn't be tested on the fly, in the midst of fast-moving objects and clumsy co-competitors. Instead, these products should be tested in a dressing room, and there should be a little movement involved. Slipping a jock strap over compression shorts, and sliding in that athletic cup, can give a shopper a good sense of fit, and walking around a bit (or even running in place) can make the decision a little easier to make.
Wearing a jock strap is an important part of any man's penis protection protocol during game time, but there are other steps that can also be vital in keeping the tool ready for playtime of a different sort. For example, a penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) can nourish the nerves down below, ensuring that they're prepared to deliver signals of pleasure. The soothing quality of these products can also help to soothe skin that might be roughened up during constant contact with a jock strap, so that skin is ready for anything that might happen when it's go time in the bedroom. Massaging in a bit of creme could be a vital part of the cool-down period after sports, as well as the heat-up interval before intimacy.
