Thanks a lot for your query. I am really sorry to learn about your  problem. Its very difficult to diagnose with such a brief history. In order to help you, I will suggest you to try Sertraline 25 mg. After breakfast  (one tablet daily) for at least 4-6 weeks in order to treat premature ejaculation. However, longer assessment is needed for formulating the correct diagnosis and management plan. You can also search on google for sensate focus techniques suggesred by masters and Johnson for treatment without medications. All the best and happy New year. N.B.--Above mentioned advise has been given in good faith on the Lybrate platform. There is no conflict of interest. I haven't charged anything for this professional advise and it's not subjected to any Medicolegal purposes. Considering the limitation of inadequate history and examination ,please consider all the suggestions with this background. Premature ejaculation (PE) refers to the persistent or recurrent discharge of semen with minimal sexual stimulation before, on, or shortly after penetration, before the person wishes it, and earlier than he expects it. In making the diagnosis of PE, the clinician must take into account factors that affect the length of time that the man feels sexually excited. These factors include the age of the patient and his partner, the newness of the sexual partner, and the location and recent frequency of sexual activity. Causes Premature ejaculation (PE) is a common complaint. The available evidence supports the notion that control and modulation of sexual excitement is learned behavior. If someone has learned it incorrectly or inadequately, they can relearn it. PE is only rarely caused by a physical or structural problem; in these cases it is usually associated with other physical symptoms, usually pain. In rare cases, PE may be associated with a neurological condition; infection of the prostate gland; or urethritis (inflammation of the duct that carries urine and semen to the outside of the body). With the rising prevalence of substance abuse, an increasing number of cases of PE are being diagnosed in patients withdrawing from drugs, especially opioids. PE may be of lifelong duration or develop in later life, especially if a difficult interpersonal relationship is one of its causes. Although PE is commonly associated with psychological symptoms, especially performance anxiety and guilt, these symptoms are its consequences rather than its causes. Once PE is firmly established, however, the accompanying psychological factors, especially in combination with sexual overstimulation, may form a self-perpetuating cycle that makes the disorder worse. Premature ejaculation is common in adolescents where it may be made worse by feelings of sinfulness concerning sexual activity, fear of discovery, fear of making the partner pregnant, or fear of contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD). All of these may be made worse by performance anxiety. Adults may have similar concerns as well as interpersonal factors related to the sexual partner. Symptoms In PE, ejaculation occurs earlier than the patient and/or the couple would like, thus preventing full satisfaction from intercourse, especially on the part of the sexual partner, who frequently fails to attain orgasm. PE is almost invariably accompanied by marked emotional upset and interpersonal difficulties that may add frustration to an already tense situation, which makes the loss of sexual fulfillment even worse. It is also important to differentiate male orgasm from ejaculation. Some men are able to distinguish between the two events and enjoy the pleasurable sensations associated with orgasm apart from the emission of semen, which usually ends the moment of orgasm. In these cases, the partner is capable of achieving orgasm and sexual satisfaction.

Sir good morning how to prevent sinus and dust allergy permanently sir.. As I am 25 years old.

ENT Specialist, Karnal
If you are allergic to a single allergen, desensitization might help. But multiple allergies is best managed by nasal sprays and avoidance of allergens. There is no permanent cure of allergy as it is reaction of your body to things which are not good for you.

All About Cataract Surgery!

Ophthalmologist, Gurgaon
All About Cataract Surgery!

A cataract is defined as a clouding of lens in the eye where your vision gets blurred. A cataract affects the eyes, when light that passes through the lens prevents a clearly formed image from reaching your retina. The disease is very common and usually develops as your eyes age or due to any injury caused to the tissues that cover your eye's lens.

Types of cataracts:

  1. Senile CataractThis is the commonest of all. It is age-related clouding of the lens. It can affect the near or distance vision and can also cause glare and change in glasses power.
  2. Secondary Cataract: It can be developed after surgery for other eye problems like glaucoma and other health conditions such as diabetes.
  3. Traumatic Cataract: It can develop many years later after an injury caused to your eye.
  4. Congenital Cataract: As the term explains, the disease may be inborn or some children might develop it at a later stage which often affects both eyes. 
  5. Radiation Cataract: It can form after you are exposed to some form of radiation.

A cataract surgery involves the extraction or cleaning of the cloudy lens, which is then replaced by a clear artificial lens.

Why does it happen? 

There are lens that lies behind our iris and pupil which act much like a camera lens. It helps concentrate light onto the retina at the back of our eye to form a sharply defined image. Besides, the lens also helps our eyes to adjust focus and allows us to see things clearly both far away and up close. The lens is composed of protein and water where the protein is arranged in a manner to keep the lens clear thereby letting light pass through it. 

However, as we grow old, some of the protein starts to become thick and cloud a small lens area. This is known as a cataract. With the passage of time, it may inflate and cover more of the lens, making it difficult for us to see.

Besides, there are other causes of cataract such as smoking, addiction of alcohol, prolonged sunlight exposure, to name a few. 

When should you opt for a cataract surgery?

Believe it or not, but till date no eye drop or medication has proven to reverse or prevent the formation of a cataract. If a cataract is affecting your nearsightedness or alteration in your prescription, then new prescription eyeglasses may help to better your blurred vision. However, the only treatment for a cataract is the surgical removal of your natural lens. And, most eye doctors recommend this surgery only when the problem becomes severe and starts hampering your day-to-day activities, such as studying or driving at night.

Eat These 5 Foods And You Will Never Need Botox!

What you eat has a direct effect on your skin; eat healthy and your skin looks healthy, eat unhealthy food and your skin looks dull. Eating right can even fight signs of aging thus, negating the need for procedures like Botox. Not only does it cost less, but healthy food boosts your overall health as well.

Here are 6 such foods that can help you fight signs of aging and give you a flawless complexion.

  1. Turmeric: Turmeric is well known for its yellow colour and anti-inflammatory properties. Many home remedies suggest the use of turmeric for a number of health ailments including skin conditions. Turmeric can fight signs of aging by reducing inflammation and oxidation. This, in turn, helps the skin heal faster. This spice can be added to your food or mixed with warm milk to benefit from it.

  2. Tomatoes: Tomatoes are rich sources of vitamin C and lycopene. Vitamin C helps stimulate the production of collagen and hence keeps the skin firm while lycopene protects the skin against harmful UV radiation. As a general rule of thumb, the deeper red the tomato is, the better it is.

  3. Berries: Berries such as blueberries and raspberries are excellent sources of Vitamin E and antioxidants that fight against the effects of pollution and rids the body of free radicals and other toxins that cause premature aging. These berries also have anthocyanins that boost the effects of vitamin C

  4. Honey: Honey can be eaten or applied topically on the skin to benefit from it. Honey helps keep the body hydrated by absorbing moisture and preventing the skin from drying out. It also has antibacterial properties that prevent acne and other breakouts. Ideally, honey should be used and consumed in its raw, unprocessed form.

  5. Nuts: Nuts are a great snack that keeps your skin looking young and fresh. Almonds are excellent sources of vitamin E that help fight acne, psoriasis and eczema among other skin ailments. Walnuts are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids that keep the skin soft and supple. Brazil nuts are also rich sources of vitamin E. However, keep in mind the high calorific value of these nuts and do not overindulge in them.

Avocados: Avocados are filled with essential fatty acids that moisturize and nourish skin. They are also rich in Vitamin B, C and E. While vitamin C boosts collagen production, vitamin E maintains the elasticity of skin and prevents sagging. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

High cholesterol: 6 Factors Which Increase Risk Of Condition!

High cholesterol: 6 Factors Which Increase Risk Of Condition!

Cholesterol is a vital component, which helps the body to make healthy cells. This wax like component is found in the lipid of the blood. An increased cholesterol count elevates the risk of heart diseases in a person. It thickens the vessels of the arteries resulting in less oxygen flow in the heart. This, in turn, increases the chances of a stroke. High cholesterol can happen from lifestyle habits and inheritance. It is completely treatable and preventable.

What causes high cholesterol?
The blood carries the cholesterol which is attached to the proteins. The combination of cholesterol and protein is known as the lipoprotein. Primarily there are two different kinds of cholesterol that the lipoprotein carries:

  • Low-density lipoprotein: LDL is the bad guy that carries all kinds of cholesterol present in the body. It eventually rests on the walls of the arteries, making it narrow and hard.
  • High-density lipoprotein: This is the good guy which scans the excess cholesterol and take them back to the liver.

Ideally, the body should have low LDL and high HDL. But often the reverse happens, resulting in high cholesterol and cardiac diseases. Factors such as unhealthy diet, inactivity for most of the day and obesity is responsible for the same. Even the genetic set up can play a hand in a high count of LDL in the body. There is nothing that can be done in this case except to seek medical help.

6 factors that put you at risk:

  1. Poor diet: Cholesterol levels are dramatically increased when baked products and saturated fats are consumed in an excess amount. Other high cholesterol food products include dairy products, processed fats and red meat. Refraining from this food items will drastically reduce the chances of getting high cholesterol in the body.
  2. Obesity: Obesity results from too much of fat storage in the body. It not only fatigues a person faster, but puts a person at high risk of getting cholesterol. The body mass index should be always lesser than 30 to abstain the risk of cholesterol.
  3. Waist circumference: A waist circumference of more than 40 inches in men and 35 inches in women can increase the risk of cholesterol.
  4. Diabetes: This is one of the major causes of high cholesterol. It not only damages the artery lining, but results in higher LDL and lower HDL.
  5. Less workout: Leading a life which is devoid of exercise and jogging can increase the chances of getting high cholesterol. Exercise boost HDL count in the body and mitigates the risk of low HDL.
  6. Smoking: The blood vessel walls get damaged with smoking. The blood vessels start accumulating fatty acids thereby increasing the chances of getting high cholesterol. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Penis Rash Prevention Tips

MD - General Medicine

Penis Rash Prevention Tips

Considering all the hard work it does, it's surprising that the penis has skin that is so delicate and sensitive. Of course, part of the reason for that sensitivity is that it increases the pleasure a man feels when the penis is engaged in sexual activity. But it also makes the skin more likely to develop a penis rash, a very common penis health concern. Since a penis rash can be an annoyance - and can in some cases result in a need to abstain from sexual activity - it's good to practice rash prevention whenever possible. With that in mind, this article offers a number of penis rash prevention tips.

- Use protection. Most often (fortunately), a penis rash is a result of fairly benign circumstances, such as too much bacteria or friction. But in some cases it results from a sexually-transmitted infection (STI), which can be much more serious. In order to lessen the chances of contracting an STI, men should be sure to wear condoms when engaging in partner-based sex.

- Avoid too much heat. A penis rash often results from sweating, which in turn is often due to excess heat. The penis tends to be somewhat hot in the first place, due to being encased in two layers of clothing, surrounded by insulating pubic hair, etc. So taking steps to avoid more heat generation can help. For example, exercising outside on a really hot day could be replaced with exercising in an air conditioned gym setting. Similarly, wearing lighter, looser clothing can help reduce sweating and bacteria as well.

- Avoid drying out. Rashing also occurs when penis skin becomes too dry - which, ironically, also often occurs when there is too much sweat. That may seem contradictory, but when a person sweats, the body releases not just water but also some oils. These oils are what help to keep the skin moist, so excess sweating can also result in dryness. One way to help with this problem is to keep the body hydrated and drink plenty of water every day - and especially during times of high heat. Dry air can also cause the penis skin to dry out; this can occur in the summer if a room is too air conditioned or in cooler months when there is less humidity in the air. Finally, taking showers that are too long or too hot can also sap the skin of moisturizing oils.

- Use gentle cleansers. Both when washing the penis and washing clothing, be sure to use gentle cleansers. Often soaps or detergents include harsh chemicals or fragrances that can actively irritate sensitive penis skin. For most men, the milder the better.

- Know your triggers. Every person's body reacts to various things in different ways. Some things are more likely to create a penis rash for one man than for another. For example, often stress can play a role in rashing; if this is the case, a man should take steps to avoid stress and find ways to relax and de-stress when stressful situations are unavoidable. Similarly, some foods may cause a "break out." Knowing what these are and controlling intake of them is another penis rash prevention strategy.

- Replenish with a reliable penis health crème. One other penis rash prevention idea is to daily apply a top drawer penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). This works best when the selected crème contains both a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). These two ingredients can create a moisture seal which helps lock in the oils the skin needs. It also helps if the crème contains vitamin D, which is called a miracle vitamin by some for the health benefits that it bestows on skin and cells.
