Hii, acne in this age may be due to various causes. It may be due to hormonal changes, any kind of stress etc. The longer it stays on your skin and the bigger it is, greater is the chance of any post acne scarring/ pigmentation on your face. In 15 days, it is not possible to treat acne scars, but it is very much possible to suppress acne flares and new acne on your face. For proper evaluation and for us to guide you proper therapy, you must share your pictures and consult online / offline with a dermatologist. All the best!

Treatment depends on the grade. Acne or pimples. Due to hormonal changes. Oily skin causes it. Common in adolescent age. May occur in adults also. Food like oily foods, ice cream, chocolate and sweets increase it. Treatment depends on the grade of pimples or acne. So, please send photos by direct online consultation as it's a must to see which grade of pimples or acne for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

I am a teenager. My mother (age 49) has been taking d-veniz 50 since 2016 (daily 2 tablets) as prescribed for depression. And sadly, there is hardly any change in her mental health. She is sometimes very happy and again gradually becomes sad, starts over thinking and even cries. And the major concern is that the medication has become her addiction. If she tries to stop the routine of not taking even a single dose, she starts feeling dizzy, feels to vomit, her head pains, she also says that when she feels dizzy, even a slight movement of her head would make her vomit. Why is this so? Please help me. My mother also suffers from involuntary urination during sleep (at night). If you're a doctor reading this, please reply.

I strongly suggest that your mother goes for counseling in tandem with her medication. She can learn a lot of skills, tools, and techniques to help her cope with this condition. In the meantime please make her do the following sincerely because she could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest she does the opposite of what this depression makes her feel like doing (actually, not doing): she will need to fight this condition. She must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer herself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose herself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in her life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If she did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please have her pray and have faith in god to alleviate her sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use her own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, she needs to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love her back, I assume dad is there. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get her out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate her, all the hard word must come from her, and her cooperation with that person is very critical for her success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what she has. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

How To Live Longer With Longer With Heart Failure?

How To Live Longer With Longer With Heart Failure?

‘Heart failure’ is a phrase that can induce fear into anyone. People usually think it is a death sentence but it is not. With proper care, you can survive with this condition and live a normal life.

What is Heart Failure?

Heart failure can happen for two reasons. The muscles of the heart cannot function properly. Either the heart cannot pump sufficient blood to the different parts of the body, or the blood flow to the heart reduces and it cannot fill with enough blood. Heart failure is the outcome of ischemic heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or excessive alcohol consumption.

Most people are not aware that there are several stages of heart failure-

Stage A- It is the pre-heart failure stage. It means that you have a strong possibility of suffering a heart failure unless you live a healthy life. Your chances increase when you or other people that you are related to by blood, have high blood pressure, diabetes or cardiac ailments.

Management of this stage of heart failure comprises-

  • Regular exercise

  • Treatment of hypertension or diabetes

  • Abstinence from alcohol and smoking

  • Sufficient sleep

  • Stress control

Stage B- It is the early stage of heart failure. Your heart is already beginning to show signs of distress.

You can manage stage B heart failure with-

  • All the measures adopted for stage A

  • Medication like enzyme inhibitor or receptor blocker

  • Surgery like coronary artery bypass or valve repairment

Stage C- In this stage, your blood flow is disrupted. You begin to display the symptoms of heart failure like breathlessness, exhaustion and swelling of the limbs. You may even suffer systolic heart failure.

To survive this stage you need to-

  • Follow all the measures adopted for stage A

  • Take the same medicines as for Stage B

  • Reduce the intake of salt and fluids

  • Monitor weight

  • Take diuretics and digoxin pills

  • Surgery such as an implantable defibrillator

Stage D- This is the most advanced stage of heart failure. It takes a lot of care, medicines and surgery to live through this stage. Treatment means-

  • All the treatment options of stages A, B and C

  • A surgical intervention like a heart transplant, implanting a heart pump or ventricular assistance devices

Heart failure in all but the last stage can easily be survived with exercise, medicines, and surgery. The last stage is the most dangerous. However, people still have a shot at life but it requires a lot of care and attention.

It might be due to varicose veins inflammation or it might be due to ligament injury in the knee. The conservative management would be to keep ice in that inflamed area during one time in a day and to wear either knee cap or varicose veins stockings.
