Dear patient, you should not allow an abscess to remain so long as it might get further deteriorated. You also need to check your blood sugar. The abscess needs to be completely drained and would dressed following all aseptic measures. You also need to take tetanus injection if not taken. Pls do not neglect and meet a surgeon.

Hi i am 27 year old, I have married 3 yrs back after 6 months of marriage i am getting heavy periods, and have lots of pimples on face, suggest me solution please.

Being overweight, using certain medications such as blood thinners and having a hereditary bleeding disorder also put you at a higher risk. There are many possible causes of heavy menstrual bleeding, including hormonal imbalance in the body, fibroids or noncancerous tumors of the uterus, uterine polyps, miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, use of blood thinners and a side effect of using an intrauterine device (iud) for birth control. Blackstrap molasses is another effective remedy to control heavy bleeding. Being rich in iron, it aids in the production of red blood cells and may help regulate the amount of blood lost during menstruation. In addition, it helps reduce blood clots and soothe the muscles of the uterine walls to reduce pain? add 1 to 2 teaspoons of blackstrap molasses to a cup of warm water or milk. Drink it once daily? another option is to add tablespoon of blackstrap molasses to a glass of lemongrass tea. Drink it once in the morning and once at night before going to bed. Follow either of these remedies for a few months to notice improvement in your condition. 3. Apple cider vinegar you can also try apple cider vinegar to overcome the problem of heavy menstrual flow. It works as a tonic to flush toxins out of your body and maintain hormonal balance. It can even be helpful in treating symptoms like cramping, headaches, irritability and fatigue. 1. Mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. 2. Drink this solution 3 times a day during the menstrual cycle for best results for medicines consult privately.

Period problems may be due to many factors. Maintain a healthy life style, regular balanced diet, avoid junk foods, regular exercising and proper sleep for 7 - 8 hrs. You have to go for ultra sonography of lower abdomen, hb%, t3, t4, tsh to rule out any cyst or hormonal imbalance. If proper homoeopathic treatment is taken, you will definitely get relief. You can consult me for further suggestion.

It is good that you are looking for spacing options rather than being faced with the dilemma of an unplanned pregnancy. Various options are available-these include birth control pills, copper iucd, hormone injections (every 3 months) and condoms. They have different efficacy rates, advantages and disadvantages. Which method is suitable for you as a couple will depend on your medical history and other relevant problems in the past. You may consult with me privately to discuss further.

Sugarcane juice is very beneficial for the major organ of the body called liver as it helps in treating jaundice which is a liver function disorder.

Disadvantages of Sugarcane Juice

As sugarcane juice has a lot of health benefits, it also has various health risks because of its unhygienic conditions it is prepared in. Sugarcane juice is considered as the best culture medium for the various microorganisms. That's why it is recommended that drink only fresh juice or the one kept in the freeze. Never drink already made juice or the juice kept outside the freeze.
The person may be infected with the Chagas disease if he drinks sugarcane juice from the roadside stalls. Drinking sugarcane juice from such places may also be contaminated with the feces of insect vector which may lead to the serious health hazards.
Mostly the engines used to crush the sugarcane are used a lot of oil to get moved easily. These oils have harmful effects on the health.
How much Sugarcane Juice should you Drink a Day

Having sugarcane juice on a daily basis depends on the individual need and health of the body. A person suffering from jaundice can take more than one glass a day of sugarcane juice (according to the doctor advice) but in the limit as it may cause some infections. However, one to two cup of sugarcane juice is enough for a normal and healthy person.

Hi, during very early pregnancy urine pregnancy test can be negative so you should go for blood test- beta - hcg to detect pregnancy. However if blood test is also negative it means you are not pregnant & should wait for spontaneous onset of period.
