Castor Eye Drop

Castor Eye Drop

Manufacturer: Leeford Healthcare Ltd
Medicine composition: Ciprofloxacin
Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

Castor Eye Drop is an antibiotic that is a member of the quinolone family of medicines. It is effective in treating infections that are caused by bacteria. Castor Eye Drop is used to treat patients with bacterial infections such as pneumonia, anthrax, syphilis, gonorrhea, bronchitis, gastroenteritis and plague. This antibiotic is also used to fight against infections of the throat, skin, ears, nose, sinus, bones, respiratory system and urinary tract.

Castor Eye Drop inhibits the regular synthesis of bacterial DNA, obstructing the process of their cell division. Therefore, it destroys the existing bacteria that are causing the infection, and it inhibits the growth of new bacteria.

Castor Eye Drop is an anti-biotic, which is a member of the fluoroquinolone family. It helps fight against infections caused by bacteria. It is used to treat severe bacterial infections including pneumonia, respiratory or urinary tract infections, gonorrhea, anthrax, gastroenteritis as well as infections of the sinus, bones, skin and joints. It is also effective in treating septicemic plague.

Castor Eye Drop works by destroying the existing bacteria, that cause infections, from within the body and preventing the growth of new bacteria. The regular synthesis of DNA requires the presence of enzymes of bacterial DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV. Castor Eye Drop inhibits the activity of DNA gyrase, thus preventing DNA relaxation, encouraging the damage of double stranded DNA and inhibiting the cell division of bacteria. In this way, Castor Eye Drop is efficient in fighting against bacterial infections within the body.

Castor Eye Drop is available in many forms such as tablets, oral solution, ophthalmic ointment and a solution that can be injected. It is important to read the label of this medicine and follow the exact guidelines of the doctor?s prescription. Do not take an extra pill to make up for a missed dose, if you forget to take a dose. Instead, just continue with the next dose.

Castor Eye Drop can cause a few common side effects like headaches, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, mouth sores, heartburn and fatigue. Consult your doctor, if you notice any of these side effects. Some of the major side effects that can occur in rare cases include loss of consciousness, irregular heartbeats, difficulty breathing, muscle aches, liver dysfunction, increased risk of tendonitis and severe rashes. If you detect any of the symptoms mentioned above, you must seek immediate medical attention. If you are allergic to Castor Eye Drop, you will experience rashes, hives, breathing problems, swelling of the throat, tongue, face or limbs and itchiness. If you notice these symptoms, it is advisable to stop taking this medicine immediately and contact your doctor.

In some cases, patients having certain disorders, who take this antibiotic, are more susceptible to its side effects. Therefore, before starting a prescription of this medicine, you should consult the doctor if you are allergic to Castor Eye Drop, blood disorders, conditions of the heart and low levels of magnesium in the blood.

Hello, I am 28 years and I am suffering from hair loss since last 4 months. please tell me some medicine for that.
Hair tips for better hair growth and prevent hair fall - 1. Having a healthy diet - Having a diet which is full of protein, vitamins and minerals is an important aid towards having healthier hair growth. Consume food which is high in vitamin A, B, C and E. Vitamin B-complex is another very effective vitamin for promoting hair growth. For the minerals, try and consume iron, copper, zinc, selenium and magnesium. Walnuts, beans, flax seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids which are great for hair growth You could also have some juices of fruits and veggies, like orange, grapefruit or carrot, lettuce and beet 2. Castor oil has a high content of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, like omega 9. This is why it is an essential ingredient which helps to promote hair growth. Castor oil is too thick to be applied directly, which is why you must dilute it with oil like coconut, almond or olive. Massage your hair with the oil mix and leave it on for 30-45 minutes. You could also slightly get it heated. Shampoo your hair and condition as regular. 3. Regular scalp massage - When you massage your scalp, it promotes blood circulation which in turn stimulates our hair follicles. Along with that, deep condition the hair once a week with warm oil (use jaborandi oil) treatment or a deep conditioning hair mask. 4. Staying stress-less - Stress is one of the worst factors which contribute to hair loss. Stress disrupts the regular hair cycle and boosts strands of hair to fall out of place. You need to calm your senses and promote lesser stress! For handling stress, try and mediate, do breathing exercises or practice other relaxation techniques 5. Egg masks - Egg is an important ingredient from promoting better hair growth. They are full of protein and are added on with minerals like iron, sulfur, selenium, zinc, etc. Use an egg mask once or twice a month for promoting healthy hair and improved growth 6. Vitamin and herbal supplements - Supplements of folic acid, biotin, flaxseed oil, are some common elements for hair growth. Supplements of folic acid and biotin will have Vitamin B complex which aids to better hair growth. 7. Nourish hair with aloe vera - Aloe vera improves hair growth and protects from hair loss. You also reduce dandruff and restore the natural shine. Take fresh aloe vera gel and add some lemon juice to it Apply and let it soak for 20 minutes Shampoo the hair (with arnica shampoo) and repeat once a week 8. Be hydrated, have proper sleep, do oil your scalp twice a week for more queries and homeopathic medicines, contact us.

Hello. It is great that you wish to take up this noble profession. All good things come with some hardships. Remember that your focus should be on the process and not simply the result. If you keep focusing at the end result only then you would not be able to focus on the "NOW" i.e. The studying preparation time. You can make alot of small changes called LIFESTYLE CHANGES. These should be done not only for nowbut for lifelong. 1. Start by making a schedule 2. Do not try to overachieve for e.g. To study 20 hours a day and rest only for 4. Make a balanced schedule for studying and relaxing. 3. Sleep is essential. Adopt sleep hygiene. 4. Stay away from bad habits and excessive stimulants 5. Lastly try to practice 5 minutes of mindfullness each to focus on the now. I must add that anxiety is IMPORTANT to life and not always negative. There is no Cure for anxiety, its a neurochemical reaction and a bit of anxiety helps you focus and study better. (Flight, fright,fight). But if your anxiety continues or worsens and affects sleep, mood and other spheres then please seek consult from a good Psychiatrist & or therapist.

Treatment and Management of Erectile Dysfunction

MBBS, MCCEE, Fellowship in Sexual Medicine
Sexologist, Jaipur
Treatment and Management of Erectile Dysfunction

How to manage it effectively?
There are enough options available which can keep every man sexually active regardless of the cause of erectile dysfunction (ed). Here's how therapy can take place.

Counselling sessions:
As with an electrical circuit, if there are any breaks in the system it will not function as a unit. Part of the process of psychosexual therapy would be to think about the actual emotional and/or psychological issues behind ed, and to attend to these with weekly counselling sessions. This realisation is an important first step for you to begin and resolve your erection problem. The patient normally implements the therapy advice at home, either alone or with a partner, between therapy sessions. This may help you maintain an erection for once, gradually building confidence.

Relieving sexual anxiety:
Telling your partner before you make love that you have this anxiety, and the feelings it causes. As a result, your partner will understand, and the two of you can work on it together.

You can reduce some worries by being more giving with foreplay, even if your sexual performance isn't what you or your partner wanted, your partner will still be satisfied.

Consider regular exercise which brings confidence in your body as your energy is also an important part of overcoming sexual anxiety.

Non-medical therapies
Watermelon juice (nature's viagra) and ginseng (herbal viagra): l-citrulline, an amino acid, present in watermelon can bring about significant improvement in blood flow to the penis, showing an improvement in erectile function. Another herb called ginseng, specifically 'red ginseng,' is known as the 'herbal viagra' that can improve sexual performance. Several research studies provide evidence for the effectiveness of these herbs in ed treatment.

Kegel exercises: pelvic exercises, involving the portion of the body between your waist and thighs, are commonly known as kegel exercises. Three months of kegel exercises twice daily can help to significantly improve your erection ability which strengthens the penile muscle. They also promote urinary control.

Acupuncture therapy: the acupuncture needles are placed in the wall of the abdomen. By stimulating specific acupoints, the practitioner aims to restore the proper flow of energy in the body resolving ed.

Eat right: scientific study at Massachusetts on male aging has found that eating a diet rich in fruit, vegetables, fish with fewer red and processed meat, whole and refined grains decreased the likelihood of having ed. Intake of a daily multivitamin and fortified foods is the best remedies for treating ed.

Walking: just 30 minutes of walking a day is linked to 41% drop in risk for ed. Moderate exercise can help restore sexual performance in obese middle-aged men with ed.

Attention towards vascular health and making body slim: high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and high triglycerides can all damage arteries in the penis along with heart and brain thereby leading to ed. Maintaining a trim waistline is a good defence for ed, as men with a 42-inch waist are 50% more likely to develop ed in comparison to 32-inch waist people.

Avoid excessive alcohol: chronic heavy drinking of alcohol can cause liver damage, nerve damage, and other conditions, interfering with the normal balance of male sex hormone (androgens) levels ultimately leading to ed.

Intake of l-arginine: l-arginine, an amino acid, which is naturally present in the body and helps make nitric oxide, supports a successful erection. Nitric oxide is responsible for making the blood vessels relax, which helps sustain an erection for men.

Medical therapy:
Ed can also be treated with oral medications, drugs insertions or injections into the penis. Oral medications that are normally prescribed to treat the dysfunction work for about 80% of men. They work by boosting the natural signals, which are generated dur

ing sexual activity so as to help you sustain an erection. Alprostadil is a type of medicine that causes blood vessels to expand, increasing blood flow to the penis, thus facilitate an erection. Cialis, Levitra, staxyn and viagra work by a similar mechanism to cause erections. There are subtle differences in how long the drug works and how quickly it works. A vacuum erection device is a plastic tube that slips over the penis, making a seal with the skin of the body. A pump at the other end of the tube creates a low-pressure vacuum around the erectile tissue, which results in an erection.

Ayurvedic medications:
Klaibya in Ayurveda is defined as the inability to attain and keep sufficient rigid (firm) erection which is very essential during sexual intercourse for the sexual needs or the needs of his female partner. Also vajikarana in Ayurveda means producing a horse's vigor. Some of the herbs used in vajikarana include:

  • Bulb of allium sativum (garlic)
  • Root of asparagus recemosus (shatavari)
  • Root of boerhavia diffusa (punarnava)
  • Whole part of Cocculus cardifoli (guduchi)
  • Root of panax ginseng (ginseng)
  • Seeds of myristica fragraus (nutmeg)
  • Leaf and root of withania somnifera (ashwagandha)
  • Leaf and seeds of ginkgo bioloba (ginkgo)
  • Pitch of asphaltum bitumen (shilajit)
  • Dried root of lepidium meyenii (maca)

Amblyopia - How It Can Be Managed?

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Ghaziabad
Amblyopia - How It Can Be Managed?

Lazy eye or amblyopia is a childhood disorder wherein the child’s vision does not develop properly, especially in one of the eyes. If the condition is not treated at the very onset, it can lead to impaired vision in the concerned eye. As the child grows up, the brain will fail to pick up images from that eye.

Causes:

This disorder is known to start when one eye has better vision than the other eye. An example would be if one of the eyes is affected by farsightedness (unable to see objects at a closer range) and the other is normal. In the case of a child, when the brain receives images from both the eyes, it will ignore the faulty eye’s image. When this situation repeats itself over months or years, it might lead to absolute deterioration of vision in the faulty eye.

Strabismus is another cause of amblyopia wherein there is a significant misalignment in the eye; one of the eyes may turn outward or inward. This does not allow the eye to focus properly on an object, thus leading to double vision. The brain again ignores the image from the faulty eye that causes vision deterioration in that eye.

Treatment:

The treatment begins by correcting problems in the affected eye and then putting a patch on the normal eye. Initially, the child may have difficulties adjusting to this new method, but bear in mind that it is absolutely necessary to wear the patch. The entire treatment process may range over a few weeks to even months. Regular visit to the doctor is of utmost importance.

In mild cases, an eye drop called ‘atropine’ may be prescribed for the good eye. The child may also require glasses to improve focus. In case of cataracts, a surgery might be needed to treat it.

The treatment should begin early, as it can get difficult to treat the condition once the child crosses his/her 7-8 year mark.

Man to Man: Talking to a Friend About Penis Health

MD - General Medicine

Man to Man: Talking to a Friend About Penis Health

Guys love to talk about everything and anything, but they seem to have serious problems talking about penis health. Since good penis care is so important to a man's health, sense of well-being and sensual satisfaction, it stands to reason that a guy would be more than ready to talk about it; however, that's not the case. So how can a man get to the point of feeling comfortable with talking about the equipment with another guy?

Fortunately, there are lots of good answers to that. Here are a few.

1) Look for friends who are open-minded. Everybody knows how it works; some friends are those that keep their feelings close to the vest and never say much of anything, but there are others that start talking about sex and everything related as soon as they open their mouths. It's those latter friends that a guy might be tempted to talk to about penis health, but don't discount the quiet ones. They are the deep thinkers who might have some valuable insights. The idea is to find someone who is open-minded enough to know that talking about penis health is simply a matter of daily life, just like penis care is.

2) Choose the right time to talk. Two guys working hard on a construction site might not have the time or the inclination to talk about penis bumps or rashes. But two men sitting over a few cold beers might be more likely to discuss all matters below the belt. Wait until a chosen friend seems to be quite relaxed and talkative.

3) Broach the subject carefully. Don't just jump into the discussion, as that might get all kinds of side-eye. Instead, frame the situation as a story of sorts. "So the other night, I was getting ready to go out on a date with that hot girl and I looked down in the shower and saw these weird red marks on my penis." That's going to get the friend's attention, because this is a situation that he might know very well, and who doesn't want to help out a friend with their dating issues?

4) Back off if necessary. No matter how open a guy seems to be, if he tenses up and closes off when penis health is brought up in any way, it's time to back off. He's not ready to talk about it, and might never be. But at least now it's clear, and a man with questions can look to some of his other friends for advice.

5) Return the favor. If a man is open to talking about penis health, he's likely open to talking about his own problems as well. So when he does mention something like that, drop everything and focus on what he's saying. This is the kind of discussion that strengthens and solidifies a great friendship, so it deserves full attention.

6) Say thanks. Sometimes a guy might talk about penis health even though he's not really comfortable with it, just as a way to help make his buddy feel better. Whether or not that's the case, don't forget to thank that listening friend - profusely! "You've really set my mind at ease, man. Thank you so much!" is a great way to make him feel valued and helpful.

Speaking of helpful, a man can help ensure the best penis health by using a specially formulated penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . A crème that contains a wealth of nutrients, such as vitamin A to fight odor and vitamin C for overall health, is great. Other important ingredients include Shea butter and vitamin E, both of which provide hydration that leaves skin smooth, supple and ready for action.

Arthritis - Ayurveda Is Indeed The Best Line Of Treatment!

Arthritis  - Ayurveda Is Indeed The Best Line Of Treatment!

If you are looking for natural remedies for arthritis, you should opt for Ayurvedic treatment. Arthritis is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disease causing damage to your joints and connective tissues. The knee gets commonly affected. There are three primary types of arthritis, which occur in your knees. Ayurveda is ideal for arthritis treatment, and there are several Ayurvedic remedies that you can opt for.

How Does Ayurveda Approach Arthritis?

Ayurvedic treatment for arthritis is based on the understanding of the various doshas or humors of the body. According to Ayurveda, there are four main humors in the body and it is these that govern our health, wellness and our proneness to disease. Arthritis, as per Ayurveda, is a condition caused due to the aggravation of vata dosha (air). The body produces ama – a toxin that is released as a by product of improper digestion. When ama is produced, it circulates in the body and gets deposited at sites that have already weakened. So when the vata is already stirring up, ama finds the perfect place to build up. That is why you experience arthritis in fingers or knees. For most people, arthritis in the knee is more painful than in the fingers because knees are load bearing joints. If you have arthritis in your knees, you will have trouble moving and the range of motion in your joints will be severely restricted. You may have to depend on people or walking aids to make even the smallest of movements.

Ayurvedic treatment for arthritis aims at balancing and stabilising the Vata component of your body. This is done by strengthening your alimentary canal and metabolic pathway. This makes sure that your circulatory channels do not get blocked by impurities, and are functioning properly. You need to drink a lot of water in order to detoxify your body. There are several Ayurvedic home remedies for arthritis treatment as well, which help in improving your motion range.

Treatment Tips:

  1. You should start your day with a big glass of lukewarm lemon water every day.
  2. You should opt for fenugreek which is an ideal natural inhibitor of ama and corrects your Vata dosha. This natural arthritis remedy can be taken in various ways. You can take these seeds in your food. You can also grind them, mix mustard oil to it, and apply the mixture to your joints. This provides warmth and relief to your joints.
  3. You can opt for an Ayurvedic hot oil massage of your joints. This is effective, especially during the winter. You can use castor oil, and sesame seed oil for massaging your arthritis affected joints. Do not apply pressure while massaging your joints as applying pressure goes against the principles of Ayurveda.
  4. It is recommended for you to meditate regularly for relieving stress and coping with anxiety. These factors are responsible for the development of ama in your body. Regular meditation makes your body relaxed and calm. You should practice yoga as it involves several breathing exercises which help in initiating you into meditation. Having effective control over your breath, your meditation will be more effective.
  5. It is important for you to sleep early and wake up early. The disruption of your sleep cycle causes aggravation of all your doshas and causes stress and fear. A healthy sleep cycle helps you in keeping away from obesity. This improves the health of your load bearing joints, as the chances of them getting extra load because of obesity are prevented.

If you are looking for Ayurvedic remedies for arthritis, it is important for you to consult an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner. He will be able to prescribe you Ayurvedic remedies which suit your symptoms and stage of arthritis.

Drop the Razor and Go in for Laser Hair Removal

Drop the Razor and Go in for Laser Hair Removal

Those were the time when it was deemed tempting for a man to be hairy. With hair almost everywhere, the manlier was the line of thinking. Unfortunately, those days are gone. Today, men don’t want the odd patches of hair on their shoulder or back of the arms and don’t even want chest hair anymore. So, just like ladies, men want their wanted hair removed as well.

There are DIY hair removal kits available, which people really don’t get attracted to. When it comes intense skincare treatments, many prefer to let professionals work wonders, rather than getting some random kit from any local store. Clinic Dermatech offers laser hair treatment for both men and women and has attained the for their work and excellence in the field.

Why choose permanent laser hair removal?

When it comes to hair removal, women have always had a myriad of options like shaving, waxing, and plucking. Men, on the other hand, have been at a loss as they have close to no option other than shaving. Shaving of hair on the face is done but what about the other parts of the body. Getting rid of hair on the chest, the back or elsewhere has been somewhat a mystery. Razors are the easy available but they are also not a permanent solution as the hair tend to regrow. Laser hair removal doesn’t present these problems. Let us check out some benefits of laser hair removal for men:

• It reduces hair growth permanently
• It eliminates ingrown hairs
• It saves you from razor burn and razor-caused bumps

How Does It Work?

Basically, the laser beam causes localized damage to the hair by concentrating light on the hair follicle, while not affecting the rest of the skin. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the laser beams, and this destroys the hair. It takes just a fraction of a second to destroy many follicles of hair at one time. However, permanent hair removal depends on many factors including skin colour, hair colour, and the strength of the laser the particular person can tolerate.

What is the cost of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is not really that expensive as people might think. Initially, when laser hair removal was first starting out, it was extremely expensive. Even if a small area was to be treated, like the upper lip, it would cost a large sum of money. Now with the advent of better technologies and the fact that the treatment is more common, the price has fallen down substantially. The cost also depends on the size of the area to be treated. So, getting both the legs treated will be more expensive than doing your underarms.
