When you choose a sunscreen, look for SPF of 30 and above(protects from UV B rays), UV A protection and also make sure it is water resistant. Only then it will protect and stay on for half a day at least. Most sunscreens are oily. Very few are matte finish. So there is nothing in wrong in applying powder over sunscreen

Congratulations on your quitting smoking. You have made an excellent decision and you will reap rich dividends in the future, healthwise and monetarily too. You must visit a dentist and have all your teeth cleaned of plaque and tartar, which you may not be able to notice. This will improve your gums and dental health. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

A common type of STD that presents as small bumps and is sometimes mistaken for pimples is genital herpes. Herpes lesions can appear on the shaft of the penis as round blisters with clear fluid that sit on top of a red base. When the blisters break, they usually cause quite painful sores or have a burning sensation.

Homoeopathic treatment UNDER EYE CREAM ( BAKSON) Apply at night under the eye in circular fashion GLOWCARE DROPS ( LORDS) 20 drops in 20 ml freh water 3 times daily Take a good Iron rich diet likeApple,Pomegranate,Spinach nd all other green vegetables 2 glass milk daily 6-8 glass extra water daily Try to have a sound sleep HOME REMEDIES Slice up a papaya. Papaya fruit contains the enzyme papain. Papain helps exfoliate the skin, making way for new skin cells to emerge. Papaya also contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E, so it's a dark spot fading superstar. Papain is most concentrated while the papaya is still green, but you can use riper fruit as well. Peel and remove the seeds from a papaya, and try one of the following treatments: 1. Slice a piece off of the papaya, and lay or hold it on the dark spots that you want to get rid of. Hold it there for 20-30 minutes. Repeat twice a day for best results. 2.Make a papaya facial mask. Cut the papaya into chunks, then use a blender or food processor to blend the fruit into a smooth paste. Apply the mask to your face and neck. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, then rinse well.

Folliculitis is an extremely common skin condition, one of the most common forms of bumps found in the genital area, caused by hair follicles that have become inflamed, often leading to a bacterial or fungal infection. It begins as small red bumps or whiteheads and develops into infected, crusty sores. Cause: Folliculitis is caused by sweat or friction from clothing that blocks a hair follicle on or around the vagina. The resulting bumps may become infected. Cure: Folliculitis usually heals on its own in approximately two weeks. If it is a small, singular bump, it can be treated by placing a warm compress on the area three times a day. A saltwater solution may offer relief. If there are multiple bumps, if they recur, or if a bump doesn't heal, a trip to the doctor for an incision, drainage, and antibiotic or anti-fungal may be required.

What Is The Relation Between Botox And The Happiness Effect?

MD, DNB, FIDP, FIL

What Is The Relation Between Botox And The Happiness Effect?

In medical world, there are countless accidental discoveries. Doctors realise that something used for one purpose can be used for another condition. The side effect of one drug could be used to treat another disease altogether. There are numerous instances but the botulinum toxin would be the first that comes to the mind.

The neurotoxin extracted from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum was used to treat strabismus, which is an eye condition where there is an excessive muscular contraction. It blocks the release of the chemical acetylcholine, thereby blocking the muscle contractions. It is actually a neurotoxin and causes temporary paralysis of the muscles. Eventually, it began to be used for cosmetic reasons to paralyse muscles that cause ageing and frowning.

Gradually, Botox made its way into more remedies including removal of wrinkles, cerebral palsy, migraines, excessive sweating, bladder spasms and depression. There are many studies relating how Botox has improved a person’s happiness quotient. Read on to know some substantiating facts:

  1. Anti-aging Effects: One of the common things we all smile at is ourselves – the reflection we see in the mirror. Botox is an anti-aging agent beyond doubt and is the most common agent to reduce wrinkles and reduce aging effects. When you are happy with what you see in the mirror, you definitely feel good and happy. This is something that gets spread and overall emotional well-being is improved.

  2. Anti-frown: Botox injections are also done along the frown lines, where the muscles responsible for frowning are treated. This ensures the person is less frowning. The effect is contagious. When you see someone not frowning or unhappy, you loosen up and lose that frown too (or smile if you did not have a frown in the first place). This effect spreads and the overall environment or ambience just becomes a happier one. The same applies to the anger expression. There is less anger that is visible on a person’s face, and therefore, the other person/people perceive less anger. This ensures there is a smoother environment.

  3. Anti-Depressant: Botox has been used for treating depression widely, and there are studies to corroborate that Botox, when used for treating depression, improves the happiness quotient. It may be due to multiple reasons, including improved appearance, but it definitely has some effect on the psychology in addition to removing wrinkles on the face. It is not necessary that people should be depressed to feel better. Even in people with no depression, the usage of Botox has improved their well-being.

So, the next time you think of Botox, do not just think of the various celebrities who fail to age over decades. The Botox could be giving them more reasons to be smiling and happy.

Hello doctor! My friend is experiencing an acute pain inside his anus opening. He is unable to even sit properly and it is very difficult to pass motions. There seem to be some boil inside the opening which is causing this. In fact it is little swollen also if you probe inside. From the outside nothing is visible. A few days back also he had experienced the same thing but that was only for a day or two. However then the boil was relatively outside and was reddish. He had applied betnovate c cream then and it was fine. But this does not seem to be working this time and he is in a very bad condition. It is paining a lot. Request your help.

Hello lybrate-user. It seems that your friend is developing a perianal abscess some times its keep on appearing if there is internal opening in the anorectum. Sometimes it leads to fistula in ano. You need to take antibiotics and painkillers along with laxatives. Consult a surgeon who will after confirming the diagnosis, drain the pus and advise you accordingly.

Iam becoming dark than before what Iam. Now please tel me a remedy to regain my colour.
A quick and easy solution can be found in your kitchen or your nearest grocery store — lemon juice. Lemons have vitamin C that can lighten dark spots on your face. It’s easy to apply. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. 1. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. 2. Continue applying this dark spot removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. If you have delicate or sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with plain water, rosewater, or honey. You can also use lime juice to get rid of black spots, applying it in the same manner as described above.

Sir, yesternight I saw blood coming from my anus when I was in toilet .it has happened to me for the first time ever. My friend advised me to wait before consulting any doctor so I have not consulted any doctor yet. I think it may be due to have fried chilli in extra amount . Also I had panipuri (type of fast dish in India) which was really spicy. So my friend said to wait me for this .so what should I do. I should wait or go to a doctor because it has happened to me first time only. I have never seen such type of blood coming out of my anus . Also i'm feeling weak due to bleeding. When it happened then I was in the condition that I would vomit but I could not .so sir kindly provide sufficient answer that I could survive. I really fear whenever I see blood . Thank you sir.

First of all, to be on the safer side get a tentanus injection asap. Secondly, do not cut it yourself. Get a minor surgery done from the doctor itself as the doctor will also properly remove the pus and bacteria. Dressing after that is important.
