Why would you need a disinfectant. While it sounds health conscious and a good thing in general to do, it may be unnecessary, unless you are having a skin problem. Again a skin problem will not appear if the body's defense wasn't weak to allow an infection to prevail in the first place. Also, the body, internally and externally, is made in a fashion that hosts (allows) microganisms to exist in a symbiotic relationship. They actually can be helpful to us. Probiotics for example. Using disinfectants, deodorants, talcum powder are hence considered interfering with that natural phenomenon of the skin and actually prove counter productive to your intention. Give it a thought! and bathe with fresh clean water. You may clean the bathtub once in a while including disinfectants but avoid to immediately use the bathtub in such a case.

Foot Drop

To avoid dragging the toes, people with foot drop may lift their kneehigher than normal. Or they may swing their leg in a wide arc.

Foot drop can happen to one foot or both feet at the same time. It can strike at any age.In general, foot drop stems fromweakness or paralysis of the muscles that lift the foot. It can have many different causes. Treatments for foot drop vary according to the cause. Most common causes and treatments for foot drop.

What causes foot drop?

  • Foot drop is a symptom of an underlying problem, rather than a disease itself. It can be temporary or permanent. Causes of foot drop include:
  • Nerve injury
  • Brain or spinal disorders
  • Muscle disorders

Here's some more detail on these causes:

Nerve injury. Most commonly, foot drop is caused by an injury to the peroneal nerve. The peroneal nerve is a branch of the sciatic nerve that wraps from the back of the knee to the front of the shin. Because it sits very close to the surface, it may be damaged easily.

An injury to the peroneal nerve may also be associated with pain or numbness along the shin or the top of the foot.

Some common ways the peroneal nerve is damaged or compressed include:


How do doctors treat foot drop?

Treatment for foot drop will depend on the cause. Early treatment may improve chances of recovery.

Treatments may include:

  • Lightweight braces
  • Shoe inserts (orthotics)
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery
  • Lightweight braces are the most common treatment. They're used to support the leg.
  • Physical therapy is used to strengthen foot and leg muscles. It may improve a person's ability to walk. In some cases, electronic devices that stimulate the leg nerves during walking may be appropriate.
  • Surgery may be recommended to try to repair or decompress a damaged nerve. In cases where foot drop is permanent, surgery to fuse the foot and ankle joint or to transfer tendons from stronger muscles may help improve gait and stability

Foot drop, sometimes called" drop foot" is the inability to lift the front part of the foot. This causes the toes to drag along the ground while walking.To avoid dragging the toes, people with foot drop may lift their kneehigher than normal.

Kindly use ortrivin containing sodium chloride for nasal blockage. Do not use otrivin containing xylometazoline or any other content. Otrivin s (nasal saline drops) can be used again and again for nasal blockage/mild cough/respiratory sounds/snorring. It is salt water and safe in infants even if used again and again. Don't place drops in both nose simultaneously as this will irritate the child as they breath from nose primarily. First place 2 drops in blocked nose and after 5-10 mins in another nose. Then clean the nose with cotton.

I have dental problems. In our area high chloride water. My dental color is brown. So what can I do?

Visit a dentist. The method of acidic micro abrasion, followed by remineralisation procedures, assures a considerable recovery of the dental surfaces affected by fluorosis. Best way is capping or veneers for upper front 6 teeth & lower front 6 teeth. Until then use tooth mousse tooth paste. Apply this paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.
