Why you are using Naproxen 500 for headache? Do you get any result? Migrain is a special category of headache most of them are cured or if not in some few, at least it can be brought down to bearable limit as any one have fewer time in life. I need little detail before going into treatment. How long you are having such headache? What is your occupation - a working lady or home maker? Do you have any other disease like high blood pressure, Diabetes etc? Since when you discovered that this is bothering you and when it started (what age). Do you feel nauseating (feeling like puke) or do vomit during head ache? Does the ache catch one particular area of your head or whole head? Do you have any sinusitis or eye problem? With answers of all these Qs you please comeback to my Private Q area to have a purposeful dialogue to provide you benefit. You wont have to pay anything for coming to private Q area. I want to be useful for your problem.

Hello lybrate-user, thanks for your query, enlargement in prostate is natural in every male after the age of 40, in some it does not cause any problem, but unfortunately in your case it has, the medicine you are taking is good. Please do get a usg kub done to assess the exact size of the prostate, a serum psa level, and get yourself examined by a surgeon or a urologist. You may require surgery as well.

Hi Abhijit yes their is possibility that she could be pregnant if you had sex in fertile period. Cough and fever could be due to viral infection. But breasttenderness could be due hormonal imbalance. Now it will be very early to diagnose pregnancy. Tell me in details about her period pattern and when you had intercourse in order to understand possibility of getting pregnant.

Mr you need to take oral anti diabetic drugs. To start with take tablet k -glim-m1once a day before break fast and later check sugar level after ten days. Simultaneously you have to exercise daily for more than 1 h and avoid direct sweets, deep fried foods and fruits like mango, banana, chikkoos & grapes. Also get your hba1c and lipid profile done and inform me.

What are the symptoms for dengue and how to prevent it?
The principal symptoms of dengue are: -high fever and at least two of the following: -severe headache -severe eye pain (behind eyes) -joint pain -muscle and/or bone pain -rash -mild bleeding manifestation (nose or gum bleed, petechiae, or easy bruising) Watch for warning signs as temperature declines 3 to 5 days after symptoms/fever began, as this is the most dangerous period when platelet counts decline significantly. Report immediately to hospital if any of the following warning signs appear: -severe abdominal pain or persistent vomiting -red spots or patches on the skin -bleeding from nose or gums -vomiting blood -black, tarry stools  -drowsiness or irritability -pale, cold, or clammy skin -difficulty breathing There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection. -Use analgesics with acetaminophen (crocin or dolo -650 mg) and avoid those containing ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or aspirin containing drugs. -Take rest, drink plenty of fluids like coconut water, lime water etc.to prevent dehydration. -Avoid visiting heavily populated residential areas, if possible. -Use mosquito repellents/mosquito nets when indoors.  -When outdoors, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into socks.

I am suffering from fever, cold and cough since last 2day. What precautions should I take?
There are several things you can do to prevent a cold—they are all easy and inexpensive and worth the effort. Wash your hands often-with soap and warm water.The germs stick to the soap and get washed down the drain. Always wash your hands after coughing or sneezing into your hands, blowing your nose, after touching someone who is sick, or when using public restrooms or telephones. Cover Your Mouth and Nose When You Sneeze or Cough- Clean your hands every time you cough or sneeze. Avoid Touching Your Eyes, Nose, or Mouth-Germs are often spread when a person touches a contaminated surface and then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth. Stay Home When You’re Sick-Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, don’t smoke, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food so you can fend off viruses. Take healthy balanced diet...like boiled eggs.daily in breakfast .. Avoid people who have a cold or cold symptoms. Routinely clean and disinfect common areas of your home. Treatment:There is a gradual 1-3 day onset of symptoms. It often starts out as a sore throat, then a fever and coughing. As the cold progresses, the nasal mucus may thicken which is the last stage before the cold dries up. A cold usually lasts for a week or two. But, taking good care of yourself at home can relieve symptoms and help prevent complications if you are otherwise healthy. Unless you develop complications, you shouldn’t need medical treatment. Complications include bacterial infections of the ears, throat, sinuses or lungs which must be treated with antibiotics. In general you should: • get plenty of rest so your body can use its energy to fight the cold • staying at home will keep you from spreading germs • drink plenty of liquids like herbal tea or hot broth/vegetable/tomato soups. Avoid foods or drinks with caffeine which can keep you from getting enough sleep Runny Nose and Sneezing- if you have post nasal drip, gargle to keep from getting a sore throat. Drink extra fluids. (avoid sugary and high calorie drinks) Use saline nasal sprays or nasal irrigation • Tablet Nasorest-P once/twice daily may reduce the amount of mucous. • Humidify the rooms you are in most or your whole house if possible. Cough-Coughing is how your body gets rid of debris and mucus from the airways during a viral infection. Unless your cough is severe or is keeping you from resting at night, it is better not to treat it. A severe cough can be treated with a cough syp, but don’t try to completely stop the cough. There are two types of coughs. Productive and non-productive or dry cough. Non-productive, dry cough. A dry, hacking cough may develop near the end of a cold. Dry coughs that follow viral colds are often worse at night and can last up to several weeks. Take syrup Alex-D for a dry cough. Cough drops can sooth an irritated throat, but most don’t affect the cough. Productive cough. A productive cough is one that brings up mucus from the back of the throat or the lungs. Productive coughs should not be suppressed to the point they no longer bring up mucus. Use syrup Alex. Drink lots of water if you have a productive cough. Head and Body Aches- Take tablet dolo-650 mg for fever once or twice daily
