Overview

Anti Snake Injection

Manufacturer: Serum Institute Of India Ltd
Medicine composition: Hemocoagulase
Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

Anti Snake Injection consists of an important enzyme that is obtained from venomous snakes. It is used as a drug that helps in the coagulation of blood, in order to prevent fatal risks of hemorrhages. Enzymes present in the drug convert the fibrinogen present in the body into fibrin by splitting off the serine group present in the fibrinogen molecules. The fibrin then combines with blood platelets to form hemostatic clots that stop blood flow and prevent hemorrhages.

Usually used to stop bleeding after surgeries it can causes side effects like anaphylactic shock in case of severe allergic reaction by the body’s immune system. While these are the possible side effects that can happen, their occurrence is extremely rare. The risk of these side effects however increases in case you have certain health conditions or are using health supplements, over the counter drugs like Reserpine, Sulfadimethoxine, etc. The drug is contraindicated in case of thrombotic or embolic episodes where blood clots may travel to the brain via the blood stream. Before taking Anti Snake Injection you must therefore consult with a qualified doctor to prevent the possibility of any complications, especially so if you are suffering from any pre existing disease or are pregnant, planning a pregnancy.

Foot PainBurning foot pain is a common complaint, usually as a result of damage to the nerves of the foot or leg. It may develop due to an injury or medical condition either of which can cause compression of the nerves. Our nerves are the structures that carry messages to and from the brain. They tell our muscles when and how to work and are responsible for sensation including pressure and temperature. Damage to the nerves affects how these signals are transmitted. Burning type symptoms may be constant or come and go, vary in intensity and be accompanied by other sensations such as pins and needles or numbness. It all depends on what is causing the problem.

Anti Dandruff - Paste

Itchy scalps with white flakes on the shoulders are a common sight. It apparently seems harmless but can be quite annoying not to mention embarrassing!

  • A number of reasons including stress, an oily scalp, sickness or even season change could be responsible for it. Sometimes, it is simply the left over new shampoo that you tried the other day. Doctors believe that dandruff is caused by Seborrheic Dermatitis, a skin condition whose cause is still not known. The skin glands usually produce a lubricant called sebum for waterproofing and lubricating the scalp. In some, this gives rise to a fungal growth which finally causes skin scaling. Some doctors feel it is related to psoriasis.       
  • Whatever be the reason, anti-dandruff shampoos come by the dozen but hardly any of them have the answer to the problem. The itchy flakes go away only to return after some time. Topical treatments often contain steroid which temporarily cure the condition but tend to affect the skin.
  • Herbal remedies are preferably the safest since they are made of natural ingredients like neem leaves, lemon oil, fenugreek extracts, tea tree oil and curd.
  • Make a paste of all above herbs and oil, apply onto scalp leave for 30 minutes then wash with plain water. you we get dandruff free hair in just few applications.
