Azoospermia means your semen doesnot contain sperms. It could be due to either lack of production or due to obstruction of the tube which delivers the sperms at sex. In patients of azoospermia, is the volume of the ejaculate (semen) is good and fructose test is positive, it could mean there is no production. If the fructose if absent it suggests ejaculatory duct obstruction. Usually hormones tests like FSH, LH, Inhibin B levels are advised and on their basis, some hormonal treatment can be offered. Normal volume, PH and fructose being present and presence of GPC (glyceryl phospho choline) means there is NO obstruction, But Normal Volume, PH and fructose positive but NO GPC means it is vas deference epididymis level obstruction. Low volume, PH and fructose negative and NO GPC means it is ejaculatory duct obstruction So het the hormone tests done, GPC levels tested, and meet a urologist or andrologist who can guide your treatment. In patients who have sperm production but tubal block, the sperms can be aspirated by TESA or MESA but these need to be sued for IVF only. If the hormone levels are low, and there is NO obstruction, there are injections which can help increase the production. In patient who have never had a child or are not affording the expensive testicular biopsy, TESA, MESA,IVF, gynecologists also can suggest a donor semen insemination as a attempt for those who want a pregnancy desperately. So decide for yourself and then meet an andrologist or urologist.

Rashes are common outbreaks or bumps found on the skin and they can either spread out over a larger area or be localized and are frequently accompanied by cracked skin, redness, inflammation and itching. They also have a variety of causes including certain diseases, psychological factors, mosquito bites, viral, fungal or bacterial infections, environmental irritants, allergies, exposure to the sun and dry skin. 1. If you think your rash is due to allergies, you could opt for over the counter products designed to treat allergic skin rashes, such as oral antihistamines and hydrocortisone creams. Another option is to try a calamine lotion which will relieve the itching and irritation of the rash. 2. One of the easiest ways to get rid of a rash that is caused by heat, hives, poison ivy, insect bites or similar things is to use a cold compress or wrap some ice in a towel. You can also use cold non-skimmed milk to help with this as well. 3. N the morning, wash your face using clean cool water and mild soap then let it air dry. When you shower, scrub your face thoroughly then rinse it. Follow this up with a lotion that contains both stearic acid and glyceryl stearate (or just one if you can? t find both in the same product). You should also be sure that the lotion does not have hard chemicals or antiseptics. You should ideally repeat this process three times a day. 4. Aloe vera gel helps the skin in a similar way to olive oil but with the added advantage that you can leave it on your skin for extended periods of time, such as overnight. If you can, it is ideal to use both aloe vera gel and olive oil (at separate times each day). When you take a banana peel and gently rub the inside of it on your rash, you will notice a soothing effect. This method works for rashes whether they were caused by rosacea, acne, eczema, insect bites or simple skin irritation. It will also help reduce the discomfort and itching that the rash creates.

What is the Difference Between an Antiperspirant and a Deodorant?

What is the Difference Between an Antiperspirant and a Deodorant?

Deodorants and antiperspirants are items of regular use all over the world. You would never want to smell bad or have sweat stains under your armpits. Hence, after using a deodorant or an antiperspirant you usually stick to it and keep on using it continuously. There is a major confusion regarding deodorants and antiperspirants, and it is important to know the major difference between these two similar items of everyday use.

Deodorant-

Deodorant serves the function of preventing unwanted and unpleasant odour from our body. Deodorants do not prevent sweating. Body odour is caused due to the bacterial breakdown of sweat. The ingredients of a deodorant are designed especially for the elimination of the smell caused by bacteria.

The common ingredients of a deodorant are :

  • Water

  • Sodium stearate

  • Organic aloe vera juice

  • Witch hazel water

  • Glyceryl laurate

  • Fir needle oil

  • Chamomile flower aqueous extract

  • Hops [CO2] extract – helps eliminate the odour

  • Caprylic/capric triglyceride

  • Ascorbic acid

  • Silica shell

  • Organic Lemongrass Oil

Antiperspirants-

Antiperspirants are different from deodorants, and they are designed in such a way that the body produces lesser sweat. This is done by blocking sweat from reaching the skin. The ingredients present in antiperspirants, especially aluminum, block the pores on the skin and do not allow sweat to pass through them. When an antiperspirant is applied to the skin, the aluminum salts get dissolved in the sweat under the armpit. The dissolved aluminum forms a gel, which acts like a plug on the sweat glands or pores on the skin. This stops sweat secretion. Aluminum is, however, a cancer-causing factor and may also lead to Alzheimer’s disease. Several forms of aluminum present in some antiperspirants leave yellow stains on clothes as a result of mixing with sweat.

The primary ingredients of antiperspirants are:

  1. Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex.

  2. Dimethicone.

  3. Tribehenin.

  4. Artificial fragrance.

  5. C18 36 Acid Triglyceride.

People are often confused as to what to use among deodorants and antiperspirants. This depends totally on your personal choice, but it is recommended to use a product which incorporates natural ingredients instead of using chemicals such as aluminum. Hence, deodorants are considered to be safer for everyday use. However, several artificial dyes and fragrances are used as ingredients in both deodorants and antiperspirants, which cause reactions on the skin. Allergies and skin irritation also occur sometimes as a result.
