Overview

Silverine 1% Cream

Manufacturer: Micro Labs Ltd
Medicine composition: Sulfadiazine
Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

Silverine 1% Cream is used to treat influenza, rheumatic fevers with very high temperatures, urinary tract infections or used as a preventive antibiotic to inhibit infections in case of severe burns.

Silverine 1% Cream is a sulphonamide antibiotic that works by inhibiting para amino benzoic acid which is responsible for the synthesis of folic acid inside bacterial cells. This eventually leads to bacterial cell lysis.

Use this medication with caution and only after discussing it with your doctor if you have certain metabolic disorders like porphyria or G6PD deficiency, liver or kidney problems, blood disorders like anaemia or asthma.

Common side effects associated with the use of Silverine 1% Cream include stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, diarrhoea, and headaches. Tell your doctor immediately if you have any of the severe side effects such as photosensitivity and easily being sunburnt, pain while urinating, low blood pressure, goitre, any mental or mood changes like depression, anxiety or depression, blurred vision or severe allergic reactions.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your father. Well, dry mouth is one of the common side effects of H& N radiotherapy. Alternatively, he may rinse his mouth with half a glass of luke warm water to which a tsp of olive oil and honey is added, 3 to 4 times daily. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

Pityriasis Amiantacea - A Guide!

MBBS

Pityriasis Amiantacea - A Guide!

Pityriasis amiantacea is a disorder of the scalp. Some of the visible signs of this condition include adherent, silver, thick scales. The scales resemble the color of the asbestos and often surrounds the tufts of hair. While the condition is manageable, care should be taken to manage this condition right from its inception. Here is a brief overview of this scalp condition.

Origin of Pityriasis Amiantacea:
Pityriasis Amiantacea is inflammatory in nature. It comes from the seborrheic and psoriasis dermatitis spectrum. Experts are of the view that this condition is a result of the exaggerated response of the body to a primary condition of the scalp. Earlier studies have suggested that there is a possibility that Pityriasis Amiantacea may have originated from lichen planus, pyogenic infection and superficial fungal. In most of the cases, it has been witnessed that fungus has a close relation to this condition.

Exposure of Pityriasis Amiantacea and its diagnosis:
This condition has low exposure among females. It is mostly observed among, young adults, children, and adolescents. The diagnosis is done clinically. A specialist might prescribe dermoscopy to rule out other conditions of the scalp. If the result is positive, the scaling will reveal a diffused yellowish or whitish pattern. While the condition is local, it has all the possibilities to spread to other hairy parts of the body. Some experts are of the view that Pityriasis Amiantacea has a close association with temporary alopecia. While histopathology is not prescribed by most doctors, however, biopsy of the scalp is suggested in many cases.


Does Pityriasis Amiantacea result in hair loss?
The answer is yes. As a result of the scaly crust, the encased hair tends to fall. This being said, it is entirely a reversible condition. The hair comes back in 9 out of 10 cases. Medical ointments and antibiotic shampoo can help to grow back the lost hair. Apart from this, home-made protein solutions can help in the regeneration of the hair and get back the original color of the hair.

Treatment options:
This is a treatable condition that might take some time for a complete cure. It involves the keratolytic and tropical anti-inflammatory treatment. This is accompanied with salicylic ointment and topical corticosteroids. A tropical mineral oil is often prescribed by doctors to ensure that the adherent scales are removed. Some doctors might also suggest a clobetasol propionate shampoo. Even ketoconazole and silver sulfadiazine is helpful to get rid of the scales. If in case the infection is accompanied with Staphylococcus aureus, antibiotics are prescribed to ensure that the condition does not turn from bad to worse. Systematic therapies are suggested if this condition is accompanied by an underlying condition such as psoriasis. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

MIND CONTROL
==============
Mind Control and some of its techniques. It?s a term that can have many meanings. Some people think of it as the ability to take control over the mind of other people. I prefer the meaning of controlling your own mind instead.



So what does this term mean? As I have understood up to now, it is the ability to understand and control your feelings, emotions and behavior. As you do this you have full control of yourself and you can achieve many goals in your life. Also you will have great self-confidence which is the key to success.



All the methods that are used for mind control have the same results. They bring you to a brain-state where you can reprogram your mind. Most of these techniques, when applied, require being active in order to affect you positively. The truth is that it is you making the changes and not the method you are using.The method just helps you reach the appropriate brain-state.



Some benefits of mind control are listed below:



o Develop Self-Esteem

o Cure Fears

o Quit bad habits

o Become spontaneous and social

o Fight Depression

o Overcome painful situations

o Become more intuitive

o Correct elements of your character

o Change your reactions



The Silva Method



I first read about Mind Control in a book written by Jose Silva. He has developed a method of mind control. This method is very simple and easy to follow. You just have to train your visualization skill (check my Visualization Exercises program) and to enter the alpha mind state, where you can change many things about yourself. The key is that in the alpha brain state your subconscious is accessible.



The Silva method is based on the power of positive thinking. While you get into trance you start visualizing positive thoughts. As your subconscious mind is accessible you can pass these thoughts into it. This can have a dramatic effect on the way you feel.



Self-Hypnosis

Self-Hypnosis is a more general term for a technique that induces you into trance. Silva method uses a Self-Hypnosis technique to induce you into trance. While Silva method follows a standard path for the production of alpha brainwaves (click here for more info about brainwaves), Self-Hypnosis is any visualization technique that can bring you to the appropriate brain-state.



While you try Self-Hypnosis you imagine things. You try to imagine and visualize as many details as you can. These details may be colors, textures, temperature, smells and generally whatever sensation you can think of.



For example, an example visualization that can induce you very fast into trance is imagining that you are walking in a narrow path with dense vegetation at both sides and far in front of you there is a forest where you can hear birds or animals and the sky is clear with the Sun heating the top of your head.



All these sensations that you imagine, as you try Self-Hypnosis, engage your right hemisphere and accelerate the production of alpha brainwaves. Usually, you can get into trance in a few minutes if you can stay in your imaginary place and feel as many sensations as you can.



Well, the difficult part of Self-Hypnosis is to focus your thoughts on the magical place you are imagining. It?s too difficult to stay in just one thought at the beginning of your relaxation. Many different thoughts tend to go through your mind, as the alpha brainwaves are produced.



You can think of it as if you are in a boring class room. At some point you stop listening what the teacher says, you feel relaxed and you start daydreaming. This is the desired state you want to be in when you try mind control.



Entering the alpha state is a skill which you can improve by training. You might even become able to get into trance in a matter of seconds. After some time a deep breath will be sufficient to bring you into trance.



There are many products online that can help you experience self-hypnosis. These are usually audio products like CDs or Mp3s. Their great advantage over the traditional method of self-hypnosis is that you are guided by a hypnotherapist. Thus, you can just follow the instructions and eliminate the multiple thinking distractions.



I have tried such products and I can say they are very helpful. They make self-hypnosis easy, maybe easier than the Silva method. You just have to concentrate on the voice and do whatever you are being instructed to.



You can of course try alone. Check my free Self Hypnosis Instruction for a complete guide.



Another way of reaching and maintaining an ideal brain state for Mind Control is by using Brainwave Entrainment.



Brainwave Entrainment



Brainwave Entrainment is when your brainwaves are synchronized to external stimuli. This may be auditory, visual or both. There are special devices that are called mind machines and use both stimuli methods to synchronize your brain. But I have no practical experience with such machines. I will talk mostly about the auditory brainwave entrainment which I have also tested.



There are three different technologies of brainwave entrainment. These are:



o Binaural Beats

o Monaural Beats

o Isochronic Tones







Whatever technology is used, the aim is one: to induce you into trance.



Brainwave entrainment is a powerful way to reach alpha brain-state. You can go even deeper reaching theta or delta brain-state. At these states you can Control you Mind effectively. As long as a session lasts you will remain at the ideal mind state having plenty of time to do your changes.



Another powerful way to get quickly into trance is to combine self-hypnosis with brainwave entrainment. Your brainwaves will synchronize to the stimuli and in the same time you will help the brain to drop its frequency by imagining things. I think this is the most effective way to reach the ideal brain-state for Mind Control.



Controlling the frequency of your brainwaves is also Mind Control. If you are able to alter the brainwaves consciously then you control your Mind. You can become creative, relaxed, alert or sleepy on demand.



If you have any experience with brainwave entrainment then please feel freeto post your stories in the comments area. Your contributions are of great value to mind expanding techniques.



Active Mind Control

Ok, let?s suppose that you reach the ideal state of the mind. What will you do next? It?s a good question if you don?t have a purpose. You are the only one who knows why you want to be in a relaxed state and influence your subconscious mind.


You may need to change an annoying aspect of your character, like being anxious easily or being too sensitive. Then, after reaching to the desired brain state, you start imagining yourself how it would be if you had not these annoying elements. You observe your new character and affirming that you don?t have any more these attributes.



You close your meditative session always with an action that confirms that you have a new character from now on. This action may be to pass through a door, to step on a particular shape on the ground, to plunge in a pool or anything you like.



By doing this often, your subconscious mind gets the message and finally you change your negative behavior. This is effective Mind Control and is active. There is also passive mind control.



Passive Mind Control



Passive Mind Control can be achieved using subliminal messaging. You don?t have to think of anything, you just have to listen to relaxation music that has integrated subliminal messages.



Subliminal messages are affirmations that are included in the track you listen to and you can?t consciously detect them. Their volume frequency is below the limit that the human ear can perceive consciously. These messages go directly to your subconscious mind.



Although, Subliminal messages are supposed to be an effective way to change your mindset and control your sensations and feelings, there is a lot of discussion if they really do work. Some people claim that Subliminal messages definitely affect them, others believe that subliminal messaging is based on placebo effects. Anyway, we will try and we will see.



Another problem is that you don?t know whether subliminal messaging products are credible. As you cannot hear the hidden messages, you don?t know what they say. Don?t try products that you are not sure for their origin.



Lastly, the disadvantage of subliminal messaging is that every session is limited to a unique action. For example, if you want to shut your mouth in order to lose fat, you will listen to a subliminal session for weight loss. There are no sessions where you can make multiple changes to your character at the same time. But, using any of the previous Mind Control techniques you are able to make as many changes as you want.
