The yellow thing that you see is plaque accumulation, which also leads to bleeding gums and bad breath. You need to visit a dentist and get scaling (cleaning) done. In the mean time you can use a chlorhexidine mouthwash in a aqueous base twice a day.

You need to get scaling (cleaning) done so as to remove all the plaque and calculus, the gum bleeding, pus (if any) and bad breath would regress over a period of 10-15 days. Also do clean your tongue properly and use a good mouthwash as well. Please do not use mouthwash like listerine which contains alcohol as the base use a aqueous base mouthwash which does not desiccate the mouth.

Dear lybrate-user, bad smell from mouth is most of the time from the oral problems and some times its due to problem of stomach (digestion or else) or due to lung. You have to concern dentist first. If its from oral problems then cleaning of teeth can works otherwise that dentist reffered you for gastric or lung doc. Thank you

Skin Care For Children - Know The Right Moisturizers For Them!

The skin is a multifunctional organ of great importance that promotes, through skin barrier function, mechanical protection, thermoregulation, immune surveillance, and prevents the loss of bodily fluids. Skin is a complex tissue derived from both embryonic mesoderm and ectoderm. The development and growth of human fetal skin is marked by a series of sequential, patterned steps that are tightly controlled and dependent on a variety of interactions of the numerous cell types that compose the organ. It was previously thought that the skin barrier function reached its maturity at about 34 weeks of gestation.

However, recent data show that it continues to develop until 12 months after birth. The skin of the neonate is subjected to a gradual process of adaptation to the extra uterine environment, and special care becomes necessary during this period. The skin is more vulnerable in the pediatric population, especially with regard to the differing sensitivities between adults and children. 

Skincare Products For Children-
Due to the characteristics of the skin of newborn babies, infants, and children, cosmetic products intended for their hygiene and protection require special attention in their formulation. Their skin care products should seek to preserve skin integrity, prevent toxicity and to avoid exposure of the skin to harmful chemical agents. These differences and issues in the skin types have inspired people to come up with different skin and hair products for adults and kids in the market.

So here are a few dos and don’ts to keep in mind before buying the skin care products for children.

  1. Products which are free of artificial fragrances, animal fat, parabens, harmful chemicals, petroleum derivatives, colour additives and alcohol are safe for kids.
  2. Use fragrance-free bath oil or a mild, gentle non-soap cleanser if required while bathing your infant in warm water every day. Avoid bubble bath as it removes natural oils from the child's skin.
  3. Avoid antibacterial and perfumed soaps as they may irritate the baby's thin and fragile skin.
  4. Apply a nappy rash cream - A thick layer of aqueous creams should be applied at every nappy change.
  5. Use a good quality moisturizer, purchased from a pharmacy, such as aqueous cream immediately after the bath to keep the skin hydrated. Thicker creams and ointments are more effective than lotions. If your baby's skin usually seems dry, a moisturizer may need to be applied two to four times a day. Make sure there are no hidden carcinogens, estrogens or caustic detergents in the moisturizer. If you find it difficult to choose the right moisturizer, prepare a homemade natural skin moisturizer for your toddler.

Always consult a pediatric dermatologist if your child’s skin is easily irritated and is less resistant to bacteria and harmful substances in the environment.

10 Facts About the Cornea and Corneal Diseases

10 Facts About the Cornea and Corneal Diseases

The cornea is a highly organized and advanced tissue present in the eye. It is one of the few tissues in the body that doesn't contain any blood vessels. It nourishes itself from the aqueous humor (or tears). The cornea has three different layers with two membranes embedded in it. Every membrane has its own set of functions.

Here is a list of 10 important facts about the cornea and corneal diseases:

  1. The cornea plays a pivotal role in helping the eye to focus on the light rays that enter it. Approximately 70 percent of the focusing power comes from the cornea. The cornea, along with the lens, is responsible for reflection and refraction in the eye.
  2. The epithelium is the outermost layer of the cornea. It restricts the entry of foreign particles into the eye and absorbs oxygen. This membrane is followed by the Bowman's membrane. The third layer is known as the stroma. It is responsible for the eye's elasticity and strength. The fourth layer is called the Descemet's membrane. This is a protective layer that safeguards the eye from any injury. The last layer is known as the endothelium. The primary task of this layer is to pump excess fluid into the other layers of the eye.
  3. Tears play a key role for an eye to function properly. Tears have three layers, namely lipid, aqueous and mucin. It helps the eye to heal any possible wounds and infection.
  4. The cornea, for the most part, heals by itself. Deeper injuries of the cornea can result in vision loss. Some of the common symptoms of corneal diseases are light sensitivity, pain in the eye, redness and reduced vision.
  5. The most common of eye allergies are caused due to pollen. This often happens when the weather is dry or warm. Some common symptoms include burning sensation, redness, tearing and stinging.
  6. The eye encounters a condition called 'dry eye' wherein the quantity of tears reduces, thereby creating a problem for lubrication. An ophthalmologist should be immediately consulted if this condition is encountered.
  7. Corneal dystrophy is a condition that clouds the cornea. It is a gradual progression and often affects both the eyes. It is usually inherited and can affect healthy individuals as well.
  8. Keratoconus is an eye condition that thins the cornea over a period of time. It is mostly prevalent among young adults. This condition results in changing the shape of the cornea and development of an outward bulge.
  9. Shingles is a recurrence of the viral infection caused by the Vatic El - La Zoster Virus. This virus has the capability to remain dormant inside the eye. It can become active after many years of dormancy and affect the cornea by travelling through the optic nerve. Doctors mostly prescribe an oral antiviral treatment to avoid inflammation.
  10. Some advanced treatment for corneal diseases includes corneal transplant surgery, anterior lamellar keratoplasty and endothelial lamellar keratoplasty
