Clean Dry 1% Cream is an anti-fungal medication used to treat vaginal and skin yeast or fungal infections, rashes, oral thrush, athlete?s foot, jock itch, ring worm etc. It can be either taken orally as a medicine or can be applied as an ointment to the skin.

Clean Dry 1% Cream prevents yeast and fungi to produce ergosterol, an essential component to form their cell membrane. It causes holes to develop on the cells and result in cell contents to leak, thereby weakening the cell membrane and finally leading to death of the micro-organism.

Disruption in its production leads to development of holes in the membrane and leakage of cell component, therefore resulting in the death of the bacteria.

    If the teeth are yellow in colour since childhood then it is because of high level of fluorine in water consumption. There is no effective treatment for that but you can go for bleaching which can lead to little significance.

    9 Ways to Get Naturally Gorgeous Skin!

    Healthy skin is a sign of overall good health and vitality. Skin problem is one of the most persistent problems encountered by people. It is imperative therefore, that you take care of your skin to avoid skin disorders. Various factors, such as pollution, smoking, eating processed food and a sedentary lifestyle contribute to unhealthy skin.

    There are certain habits, which can be followed by you on a regular basis to restore the health of your skin. Some of them are:

    1. Exercise regularly: Exercising on a regular basis improves your skin health as it increases blood circulation in the body. Consequently, it helps in delivering various nutrients to the skin, which in turn defers aging. Daily exercises also prevent the onset of various skin disorders.
    2. Keeping it clean: You should keep your skin clean to prevent the buildup of dirt. This prevents clogging of the pores and enables the skin to breathe. 
    3. Intake of vitamin C in various forms: Vitamin C is used in the collagen production process by amino acids. One of the most convenient ways of maintaining the glow of your skin is to introduce fruits and vegetables which are rich in vitamin C. 
    4. Quit smokingThe pursuit of healthy skin necessitates immediate disengagement with smoking. This fatal habit should be avoided at all cost, as it triggers and facilitates the aging process. It also aggravates the production of free radicals in the skin which in turn adversely affects the skin.
    5. Less exposure to the sun: Exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun may damage the collagen structure of the skin. It also causes tanning and increases your chance of developing skin cancer.
    6. Avoid sweet food: Consumption of sweets may lead to the formation of various substances, which threaten to damage the collagen structure and subsequently aggravates the aging process.
    7. Antioxidants: Fruits and leafy vegetables are generally packed with antioxidants. A potential damage of the skin can be deterred by including them in the diet
    8. Massage: Skin massages facilitate blood circulation on the skin and eradicates the damaging effect of the free radicals. This ensures that you have healthy and refreshed skin.
    9. Plant proteins: The level of oestrogen falls drastically in women after menopause, leading to the development of wrinkles.Foods, such as soy, nuts and beans minimise this effect by replenishing the level of oestrogen in the body and therefore must be incorporated in the diet.

    Tennis Elbow - Who Is At Risk?

    Lateral epicondylitis, which is the medical name for tennis elbow, is a condition wherein the tendon in the upper arm develops a tear due to repeated motions. This is a very painful condition and can make your daily life difficult. It usually tends to affect your dominant arm i.e. the arm that you use the most.

    Who does it affect and why does it happen?
    As mentioned earlier, tennis elbow occurs due to repetitive similar movements of the elbows, forearms and wrists over a prolonged period. The common name for this condition came due to repeated occurrences with tennis players although it can happen to players of other sports as well as people in other profession too. Some of the people who are most susceptible to this could be from the following fields:

    1. Sporting activities such as squash, tennis, fencing, cricket and many other sports where repeated arms movements are required.
    2. Carpenters
    3. Painters
    4. Musicians playing certain instruments
    5. Typing
    6. Knitting work
    7. Chefs and waiters
    8. Cleaning
    9. Road and construction workers

    Symptoms

    1. A slow exacerbation of pain over a period and gradual worsening can be a major symptom.
    2. In certain cases, the pain may manifest suddenly which will make any movement very difficult.
    3. Moving your arm may become very difficult, especially during any up or down movement of the arm.
    4. In some cases, the pain may be experienced only when shaking objects or actions wherein squeezing or hard gripping is required.
    5. Performing daily activities such as a tooth brush, trying to open jars or even trying to use a knife or fork can get extremely difficult.

    How it can be treated?
    Most treatment methods include keeping the elbow in a resting position and giving it time to heal automatically. However, some medication may also be given to relieve pain and quicken healing. Some of these are mentioned below.

    1. Elbow straps: These fix the elbow in a comfortable position and don’t allow it to move helping it heal on its own.
    2. Ice treatment : This is the most common home treatment prescribed to relieve pain. You can use homemade icepacks or even buy gel pack, which can then be held against the area to relieve pain.
    3. Painkillers: Ibuprofen and aspirin can be used to lessen the pain, although it is advisable to consult your doctors first.
    4. Various physical therapies: Physiotherapy, acupuncture or specific doctor recommended exercises could be done to not only relieve pain but also quicken healing and to strengthen the tendons and the muscles of that area.

    Patient Safety - 4 Tips You Must Always Remember!

    MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS

    Patient Safety - 4 Tips You Must Always Remember!

    Patients look up to doctors as their life-savers, they expect them to give the best treatment and to restore their health completely. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the doctors and the entire medical staff to serve patients with complete adherence, so that patients can recover at the earliest and their health problems are treated to the best. 

    However, doctors are humans and humans can make mistakes. And, a mistake committed by a doctor can have serious implications not only on a patient’s life but on the lives of the people associated with them, therefore, be avoided at all costs. A report by the WHO stated that medical errors are amongst the top ten killers. It is said that 1 in every 10 patients admitted to a hospital experiences an adverse event. Even a slightest mistake by the medical staff can actually jeopardize the life of the patient while a few safety measures can save their life. The WHO has put down certain guidelines for patient safety, which all doctors and medical staff should be careful about.

    4 Things that doctors and medical staff must remember.

    1. Prevent the spread of infectionsAt any given point of in time, 5.2 million people in India suffer from one or the other infections due to medical errors. Offering single bedrooms are an effective way to limit the transmission of infections from one patient to another. Also, it is important to pay attention the air filtration system and provide multiple hand wash stations. Simple measures can also help reduce blood stream infections associated with a central line. Whenever, a venous catheter needs to be inserted, wash hands, clean the skin thoroughly, remove unnecessary lines and only then perform the insertion.
    2. Pick Blood Donors Carefully: Many surgical procedures and treatments require blood transfusions. If attention is not paid to testing blood before it is administered to the patient, there could be serious complications. It is the duty of the hospital to provide safe and sufficient blood supply. For this, the World Health Organization recommends a proper assessment of blood donors and testing their suitability to donate blood at each occasion. Blood transfusion services should also be able to screen for diseases that can be transmitted through transfusion.
    3. Use Good Design Principles: A fall from a chair or bed can elongate a patient’s recovery. Hence, pay attention to how the hospital has been designed to reduce the risk of such events. Avoid steps and slippery tiles as far as possible. Sensitive bed and chair alarms could also be used to alert a nurse whenever a patient needs assistance. Nurse stations should also be decentralized so that the nurses have easy access to the patients. According to WHO guidelines, a hospital’s ventilation system should provide a minimum average ventilation rate of 60 l/s/patient for general wards.
    4. Prevent Surgical Infections: Surgical infections are rare but they still can happen. To reduce the risk of surgical infections, doctors and nurses must sanitize their arms up to their elbows with antiseptic soap before performing surgery. According to WHO guidelines, hands must be washed for a minimum of 2 minutes before any procedure. Special, gowns, masks, hair covers and gloves must be used by anyone in the operation theatre. After surgery, the caregivers must again wash their hands and forearms with antiseptic soaps, even though their skin did not come in direct contact with the patient.

    Maintain Your Hair Health With These Quick Tips!

    Hair is technically dead tissue and considering that, we spend a whole of a lot of time and currency on our hair. That is probably because hair plays a big part in our appearance. Changing your hair color or merely getting a different hairstyle can change your appearance to an extent that some might find you unrecognizable. On the contrary, you can go into a week-long depression, if your hair stylist has let you down with the bob-cut your favourite celebrity has sported so beautifully. Like nails, hair is an extension of the epidermal layer of the skin and is mainly composed of proteins. Apart from adding to your appearance, it also provides warmth and protection to your head.

    So it is obvious that maintaining healthy hair is something we all want and would like. Here are a few tips that will help that mane flow beautifully-

    1. Ripe avocado: Mash some ripe avocado without the pit, mix it with an egg and apply it to your hair. Wash it off after 20 minutes. Avocados are rich in essential fatty acids, minerals and vitamins that help add lustre to your hair. This is advised to be done once a week if you have damaged hair or once a month for healthy hair.
    2. Apple Cider Vinegar: Adding one part apple cider vinegar to two parts of lukewarm water and applying it to your hair can help balance the pH of your scalp. It may not make your hair smell like a dream, but it will help bring out the natural red highlights in your hair.
    3. Lemon Juice: Apply lemon juice to your scalp to get rid of dandruff and get clean scalp.
    4. Egg and shampoo: This combination can help strengthen your hair. This mixture adds protein to your hair. Take an egg and mix it with a small amount of shampoo and lather it up for 5 minutes and rinse well.
    5. Essential oils: Add some essential oil to your shampoo to get a beautiful lustre to your hair.
