Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. You can take insulin mentioned with a 40 units syringe, but you will have to change the quantity proportionately. 100 iu /ml has more insulin in one ml compared to 40 iu / ml vial. So the quantity has to be increased by 2.5 times. To get amount of insulin. To avoid this confusion, it is better to stick to 100 iu/ml Insulin. Thanks.

Hi the difference between pentavac (painful) and pentaxim (painless) one is regarding one of the component. (pertussis). But there is a slight advantage of painful over painless one. As it's just the second dose you can switch over the painful one. It has got it's own side effects. Thanks.

I have rectal pain from the past 10 days and it was severe pain while passing stool and bleeding. I have consulted a doctor and he prescribed some Amoxicillin antibiotic and zerodol tablet along with one stool softener syrup freelex. After 3 days also it wasn't reduced and he gave me another antibiotic with more power along with zerodol. Now it is a bit okay. He says it's fissure and needs surgery. Does it really required? Around 3 years back the same situation has come and I have used drotin tablet along with flagyl 400 based on the prescription by another doctor n it got cured in 4-5 days. Can you please suggest the permanent solution for this problem?

Hello dear lybrate-user, Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* Currently there is no need of surgery.* First of all, primary care has to be done with conservative management, when there is no recovery from that (which is very rare) then and then only surgery is mandatory.* Primary guidelines for better recovery. Drink plenty of liquids. Prefer soft, light diet with more of green leafy veg, whole grains, cereals,pulses, legumes,organic fresh fruits. Avoid all types of oily, spicy,non veg, hot beverages, junk foods, dairy fat. Manage to have smooth bowel passage with the help of bulk forming laxativesas Ispaghula husk with lukewarm drinking water. Tab. Ibuprofen (400 mg) after meals morning and evening after meals for control of pain, burning if no history of drug sensitivity. Xylocaine (5 %)jelly application over the anal part gives soothing action. Sitz bath (sitting in a tub filled with lukewarm water 5 minutes each 3 times a day and additionally after passing stools) helps.Avoid long drives, sitting prolong on hard surfaces. Control of blood sugar, cholesterol,body weight. Avoid smoking, alcohol if consuming.* And for your knowledge, fissure can again and again return after full recovery with surgery or without surgery, there is no permanent solution of that anywhere in any pathy of the universe. Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards take care.

Hello There are many homoeopathic medicines that are effective in treatment of piles just like nux vomica. I suggest you to consult a homoeopathic doctor personally to get it cured. To reach permanent relief, a complete case taking is required and that is possible if you consult a physician. Homoeopathy has no fixed medicines for a fixed disease. It has many medicines for one disease and vice versa. These medicines are quite effective and give a prolonged relief. Kindly eat fibre rich diet to avoid constipation, eat green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water, follow exercise be it in form of a walk or yoga regularly. Take care.

It is normal to lose about 30-80 strands of hair in a day. The common reasons behind hair fall are lack of essential nutrients in the body, improper and unhealthy dietary habits, hormonal imbalance, certain medications, dandruff, alopecia and other scalp disorders, stress and tension etc. Natural oils can be used to massage the scalp for countering hair fall. Gently massage the scalp prior to head bath every day till 50% reduction is observed in the hair fall later twice a week. Also check hemoglobin for anaemia and thyroid status with serum tsh. Start taking amla hair nutrition supplement. Keep stress away with regular exercise, yoga, meditation. Get the underlying scalp condition like dandruff treated. Modes of treatment for hairfall/alopecia includes, oral medicine & local external application. The minimum duration of the course of oral medicines & external application is 6 months.
