I'm a 21 years old female. I have extra skin around my anus for an year now it used to go back last year when I pushed it in. I bled while passing out stools so consulted my doctor for. He told it was an anal fissure and have me a cream without any external examination. Problem subsided after a week. But from 2 months I'm having extreme pain while passing out stools, stool has blood lining sometimes. The skin around anus is itchy and uncomfortable while sitting. It has changed texture now .It doesn't go back in. There is little pain if I touch it. I visited my doctor again and he gave me fiber husk supplement and asked me to increase fiber intake. Im on a bland not at all spicy diet, eating lot of fiber and fruits and drinking so much water from past 2 weeks but I see no difference. The stool has softened but pains a lot when passing out. The external skin is not reducing even after soaking it in warm water everyday and applying apple cider vinegar. Please help me.

Three to four common possibilities can be considered when person feels the tag near the anal verge. The most common possibility is the anal tags which can easily be ignored and never cause any problem. Second common possibility is a sentinel pile accompanied by the fissure in ano. It is a guarding pile which develops just at the lower end of the fissure. When the fissure is acute it causes severe pain. I consider this to be strong possibility in your case. Local examination will clinch the diagnosis. When local anesthetic like Lignocaine jelly does not help and pain is unbearable it is better to undergo Lord's procedure which is a surgical procedure under general anesthesia and doesn't involve any knife or stitching work. Purpose of the procedure is to give dramatic pain relief to the patient by releasing the internal sphincter muscle spasm. Other possibilities like prolapsed piles and skin lesion like condyloma can be considered. Local examination will help in getting the accurate diagnosis. Pinpoint diagnosis will help you get the relief.

PCOS Can Trigger Infertility - Do You Think It Can Be Treated?

PCOS Can Trigger Infertility - Do You Think It Can Be Treated?

PCOS is a disorder characterized by enlarged ovaries and the formation of tiny cysts on the outer sides of the ovaries. Polycystic Ovary is a hormonal condition that stimulates surplus production of androgen in women. Androgen being a “male hormone,” causes development of muscle mass and hair in men, and it has similar effects on women as well when present in high amount. They trigger acne and excessive growth of body hair in women accompanied by irregular or lack of ovulation in the form of absent or erratic menstrual cycle. Hence, owing to troubles in ovulation (discharge of ovules from the ovaries), one may experience difficulties in getting pregnant.

Many women suffering from PCOS are unaffected by the influence of the hormone ‘insulin’, which indicates, that it requires a larger amount of insulin to sustain a normal blood sugar level. High levels of insulin as a result of insulin resistance, in turn drastically boosts androgen production.

Symptoms of PCOS include:

  1. Irregular Menstrual Cycle. Women with PCOS may miss periods or have fewer periods (fewer than eight in a year). Or, their periods may come every 21 days or more often. Some women with PCOS stop having menstrual periods.

  2. Excessive hair. Excessive hair on the face, chin, or parts of the body where men usually have hair. This is called "hirsutism." Hirsutism affects up to 70% of women with PCOS.3

  3. Acne. Acne on the face, chest, and upper back

  4. Hair Loss. Thinning hair or hair loss on the scalp; male-pattern baldness

  5. Weight Gain. Weight gain or difficulty losing weight

  6. Skin Darkening. Darkening of skin, particularly along neck creases, in the groin, and underneath breasts

  7. Skin tags. Skin tags, which are small excess flaps of skin in the armpits or neck area

Treatment for PCOS:

There is apparently no procedure to cure PCOS and improve fertility; but the treatment is tailored as per the symptoms of the condition:

  1. A lack of ovulation and menstrual cycles hinders the secretion of progesterone (a hormone preparing the uterus for pregnancy), thus hampering conception. In this case, the treatment is directed at maintaining a regular ovulation and menstrual cycle which can be fixed by consuming birth control pills. These pills comprise of both progestin and estrogen which aid to bring down androgen production.

  2. PCOS along with insulin resistance warrants the use of certain medications such as metformin which are prescribed to enhance insulin sensitivity. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Homeopathy For Complete Removal Of Gallbladder Stones!

Gallbladder stones are mainly characterized by the hardening of the digestive fluids that gets deposited in the gallbladder. The gallbladder stones formed may comprise of undissolved cholesterol with a yellowish appearance (Cholesterol Gallstones). The hardened digestive fluid (bile) may also contain an elevated amount of bilirubin with the stones appearing black or dark brown (Pigment Gallstones).

As is the case with most other types of stone formations (such as kidney stones), people with gallbladder stones often experience excruciating abdominal pain, restricting their movement. Some people also experience pain between the shoulder blades. Fever, nausea, and vomiting are also common in patients suffering from the condition.

Homeopathy for the removal of gallbladder stones effectively-
Homeopathy comes as a breath of fresh air for many people whose lives have been jeopardized by the gallbladder stones. Homeopathic treatment has a very positive approach to treating gallbladder stones. It evaluates all the possible factors (physical or mental condition) that can result in the stone formation. With a proper diagnosis and identification of the trigger, the treatment then uses natural medicines to treat not only the gallbladder stones but also the symptoms that come tagged along. As compared to the conventional approach (including surgeries), Homeopathic treatments are safe and noninvasive. Though time-consuming, homeopathic treatment goes the extra mile to provide permanent relief from the gallbladder stones.

Some of the Homeopathic medicines that provide noteworthy results in the case of gallbladder stones include

  1. Calcarea Carb works to deal with gallbladder stones in obese people with elan. Some of the associated symptoms taken care of by Calcarea Carb include extreme sensitivity to cold, sour vomiting, or increased sweating (especially of the head region) triggered by the gallbladder stones.
  2. Lycopodium is beneficial for people who complain of gallbladder stone induced gastric problems such as acid reflux, a feeling of fullness even after eating a small quantity of food, and increased gas formation.
  3. Chelidonium works wonders to alleviate the gallbladder stones associated with abdominal pain. There is also a pain in the shoulder blade (right side).

While the homeopathic medicines are helpful, the patient also needs to bring about positive changes in their lifestyle and dietary habits. These changes, recommended by most Homeopaths, acts as a catalyst elevating the overall effectiveness of the Homeopathic treatment in treating the gallbladder stones.

  1. Obesity is one of the underlying triggers for the formation of gallbladder stones. Thus, maintaining the body weight and getting rid of the extra fats are essential. Exercise and physical activities can produce fruitful results. However, refrain from strenuous exercise or strict dieting.
  2. Choose your diet wisely. While increased intake of cholesterol can worsen the condition of gallbladder stones. Limited consumption of Good Cholesterol or HDL (High-Density Lipoproteins) is indeed healthy for the body. Whole grains, olive oil, legumes, flax seeds, fibrous fruits, fish (such as Salmon, Mackerel, Tuna, Sardines), nuts, flax seeds, play an instrumental role in elevating the levels of HDL in the body. Opt for anti-inflammatory and high fiber foods such as fruit, legumes, nuts, seeds.
  3. It is also essential to keep the body hydrated.

Everything You Need To Know About PCOD

Everything You Need To Know About PCOD

Everything you need to know about Polycystic Ovarian Disorder (PCOD)PCOD affects almost 17 percent of Indian women.

PCOD in India

This hormonal imbalance affects many women in India. A pan India survey was recently conducted by the Metropolis Healthcare Ltd, on 27,411 samples of testosterone over a period of 18 months. Out of these 27,411 samples, around 4,824, (17.60 percent) of the females faced hormonal risks including polycystic ovarian syndrome.

What is Polycystic Ovary Disease (PCOD)?

Polycystic Ovary Disease (PCOD), is a condition where a woman develops enlarged ovaries and small follicular cysts that are of the diameter 0.5-1.0 cm. This leads to a collection of eggs in the ovary that cannot be discharged from the body. “A woman with PCOD will also have symptoms that reflect imbalances in reproductive and other hormones. Here, the ovaries make more androgens (male hormones) than normal. High levels of these hormones affect the development and release of eggs during ovulation."

pcosss_1441095494.jpg The following symptoms of PCOD, which large affects women of all age groups and may vary:

  • In adolescent women, PCOD symptoms include infrequent, absent, and/or irregular menstrual periods and hairfall.
  • In reproductive age group, women face fertility issues, requiring assistance in form of fertility treatments. In fact, PCOS is the most common cause of female infertility.
  • Hirsutism— increased hair growth on the face, chest, stomach, back, thumbs, or toes.
  • Cysts in the ovaries can also cause acne, oily skin, or dandruff.
  • It may also lead to weight gain or obesity, usually with extra weight around the waist and male-pattern baldness or thinning of hair.
  • One may also notice patches of skin on the neck, arms, breasts, or thighs that are thick and dark brown or black skin tags — excess flaps of skin in the armpits or neck area.

"Changes in lifestyle, lack of exercise, dietary habits, exposure to environmental pollution, stress levels and loss of work life balance have become the primary causes of PCOD which can also lead to hypertension, diabetes mellitus, increased risk of uterine cancer and even cardiovascular diseases," she says.

Remedies for PCOD

Experts suggest that if symptoms are identified at an early age and brought under control, it can help reduce the chances of having complications like diabetes and heart disease. "However, the primary steps are eating right, exercising and not smoking.

#1 Lifestyle modification

"Many women with PCOD are overweight or obese, which can resultantly cause many health problems. The way to manage PCOD is by eating healthy and exercising to keep weight at a healthy level,". You can do the following:

  • Limiting processed foods and foods with added sugars
  • Add more whole-grain products, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats to your diet. "This helps to lower blood glucose (sugar) levels, improve the body's use of insulin, and normalise hormone levels in your body. Even a 10 percent loss in body weight can restore a normal period and make your cycle more regular," she says.

#2 Dietary changes

  • Avoid foods laden with too much sugar. Remember that the worst offenders are soft drinks, cookies, cakes, chocolate, sweets, and processed breakfast cereals.
  • Avoid foods containing unhealthy sugar compounds such as high-fructose corn syrup.
  • Increase the consumption of vegetables and include a minimum of five servings of vegetables daily.
  • Limit processed grain-based foods such as boxed breakfast cereals, white bread, and pasta and choose small amounts of whole grain alternatives.

breakfast-991821_1280.jpgYou must include whole grains in your daily diet to make up for the needed amount of protein

  • Fiber contributes to improved blood sugar control and healthy bowel function. Aim to eat 25-30 grams of fiber per day.
  • Protein helps balance your blood sugar and can help tame a sweet tooth. Include fresh fish, lean red meat, organic chicken, organic eggs, whole grains, and legumes in your diet, which are all good sources of protein.
  • The type of fat in your diet plays an important role in assisting with insulin reception at the cell level. Use cold-water fish, organic eggs, avocados, extra virgin olive oil, and raw nuts and seeds that are rich in essential fatty acids.
  • Ensure you eat regularly and choose healthy snacks mid-morning and mid-afternoon to balance your blood sugar levels between meals.
  • Also make sure you add fruit, nuts, seeds and natural yogurt- all make for healthy snacks.

#3 Birth control pills

You can also ask your gyneacologist if you can include birth control pills and if so, which one's suit you best. For women who don't want to get pregnant, birth control pills are extremely helpful. They do the following:

  • Control menstrual cycles
  • Reduce male hormone levels
  • Help to clear acne

#4 Diabetes medications

"The medicine Metformin (Glucophage) is used to treat type 2 diabetes. Metformin affects the way insulin controls blood glucose (sugar) and lowers testosterone production. It slows the growth of abnormal hair and, after a few months of use, may help ovulation to return,"

She adds that recent research has shown Metformin to have other positive effects, such as decreased body mass and improved cholesterol levels. "Metformin will not cause a person to become diabetic,"

#5 Surgery

Ovarian drilling is a surgery that may increase the chance of ovulation. It's sometimes used when a woman does not respond to fertility medicines.

#6 Medicine for increased hair growth or extra male hormones

"Medicines called anti-androgens may reduce hair growth and clear acne. Spironolactone (speer-on-oh-LAK-tone) (Aldactone), first used to treat high blood pressure, has been shown to reduce PCOD. These medications should not be taken if you are trying to become pregnant," says. She lists a few other options:

  • Vaniqa cream to reduce facial hair
  • Laser hair removal or electrolysis to remove hair
  • Hormonal treatment to keep new hair from growing

She adds that some research has also shown that bariatric (weight loss) surgery may be effective in resolving PCOD in morbidly obese women (BMI of more than 40).

#7 Fertility medications

"Lack of ovulation is usually the reason for fertility problems in women with PCOD. Several medications that stimulate ovulation can help women with PCOD become pregnant. Even so, other reasons for infertility in both the woman and man should be ruled out before fertility medications are used. Also, some fertility medications increase the risk for multiple births (twins, triplets).

She lists the following treatment options:

  • Clomiphene (Clomid, Serophene): The first choice therapy to stimulate ovulation for most patients.
  • Metformin taken with clomiphene: This may be tried if clomiphene alone fails. The combination may help women with PCOS ovulate on lower doses of medication.
  • Gonadotropins: It is given as shots, but are more expensive and raise the risk of multiple births compared to clomiphene.

Another option is in vitro fertilisation (IVF), which offers the best chance of becoming pregnant in any given cycle. It also gives doctors better control over the chance of multiple births.

Most women have symptoms that are normally associated with menopause. "These include hot flushes, vaginal dryness, irritability, night sweats, or difficulty sleeping. Menstrual periods may be sporadic or stop completely. Some women may never begin having menstrual periods and may not go through the normal sequence of puberty,".

She adds that while PCOD does pose a problem with respect to fertility, it must be noted that it is not incurable.

Skin Tags - Causes & Treatments!

Skin tags are painless growths on your body that are usually found in the folds of skin. You can find these non-cancerous growths anywhere in your armpits, groin, eyelids, neck, thighs, area under the thighs, amongst other places. They look like little solid roundish growths and are attached to the skin by a small, thin stalk called a peduncle. And this standard structure differentiates them from moles and other skin growths. They are made up of blood vessels and collagen surrounded by an outer skin layer. They are also mostly smaller than 2 mm in size and are flesh coloured. They can either be smooth and round, or wrinkly and asymmetrical. Some skin tags can resemble grains of rice and these are found mostly under the eyelids.

Skin tags can develop in both men and women. An individual is more prone to developing skin tags if you’re older than 50 years.

What are the causes?
It’s still unclear what causes skin tags. People think that friction could be a factor as tags usually show up in skin folds.

  1. Several studies have been done to understand the causes and risk factors for skin tags. As per studies, the human papillomavirus (HPV) which causes cervical cancer in women may be an important factor in the development of skin tags.
  2. Insulin resistance, a condition which can lead to type 2 diabetes and pre diabetes is also implicated in several studies.
  3. Obesity and high BMI (Body Mass Index) and high triglycerides in the blood are risk factors too.
  4. Skin tags are also a common side effect of pregnancy and this could be due to the squiggly pregnancy hormones and weight gain.
  5. Researchers warn that in rare cases, multiple skin tags can be a sign of a hormone imbalance or an endocrine problem.

The good news here is that skin tags don’t develop into skin cancer and they aren’t contagious. However, the skin tags can be an eyesore, so, here’s what you can do to get rid of them. There is no need to remove tiny skin tags as they may rub off on their own.

If a skin tag is large, ungainly, pains or bothers you in any way, you can try anyone of the options here to get them removed:

  1. Cryotherapy: This involves freezing the skin tag with liquid nitrogen.
  2. Surgery: This involves removing the skin tag surgically.
  3. Electrosurgery: This option uses high-frequency electrical energy to burn off your skin tag.
  4. Ligation: This involves cutting the skin tag’s blood supply by tying it off with surgical thread.

Something to remember here is that you should never try to remove skin tags on your own using DIY instructions. This can cause bleeding, burns, and infection. Therefore, it is perhaps the best idea to let the doctor handle your medical condition and prescribe a treatment that is best suited for you.
