Simple analgesics like paracetamol will help. 2. Migraine : episodes of headache, geŕnerally one one sided and with nausea or vomiting, photophobia. Migraine treatment requires lifestyle modifications and painkillers. 3. Headache can be due to refractive error (vision defect ). Simple vision check and wearing spectacles accordingly can help. 4.

This is very common to have dry cough after fever esp after taking a strong anti pyretic like dolo. This may take some time. If it's unbearable and affecting your daily routine you can take medicine after consulting a doctor. It will decrease the severity. Along with medication keep doing gargles with saline water. Avoid taking fried and highly spicy food. Drink Luke warm water.

Study Suggests Paracetamol Can Alter Fertility of Female Offspring!

MBBS
General Physician, Fatehabad
Study Suggests Paracetamol Can Alter Fertility of Female Offspring!

As per a study conducted by the Copenhagen University Hospital, it was revealed that consuming paracetamol during pregnancy can be detrimental for your baby, as it can weaken the development of the reproductive system of female offspring. The research was published in Endocrine Connections journal.

Although, paracetamol is an over-the-counter treatment for pain relief that is commonly taken by pregnant women worldwide. The study was conducted on three individual rodents and the results indicated that the rodents, who were given paracetamol during pregnancy at doses equivalent to those that of a pregnant woman may take for pain relief, produced female offspring with fewer eggs.

Further, Dr. Kristensen said, "Although this may not be a severe impairment to fertility, it is still of real concern since data from three different labs all independently found that paracetamol may disrupt female reproductive development in this way, which indicates further investigation is needed to establish how this affects human fertility."
