Using a natural remedy for itching




If you need a remedy for itching, try the following natural cures:

Sufferers of chronic itchy skin should seek medical attention to rule out any underlying cause or disease. Typically, health care professionals will treat itchy skin with hydrocortisone cream or, in some cases, prednisone steroids. If you need help finding an effective herbal or organic remedy, a physician practicing holistic medicine may be a suitable match to treat your itching skin.

Coconut oil/lemon juice:

A mixture of equal parts coconut oil and lemon juice is believed to reduce inflammation and remedy itch. For ease of application, fill a spray bottle with the mixture and apply liberally as needed.

Oatmeal:

Oatmeal is one of the most popular natural remedies to relieve itching. Add two cups of uncooked oatmeal to warm bathwater and soak for 15-20 minutes.

Menthol:

Any topical rub containing menthol, such as vick's topical
Vaporub will immediately help an itch subside.

Aloe vera gel:

A natural cure-all, aloe vera gel can be applied liberally as needed to itchy skin, it will naturally soften and cool the tender skin.

Baking soda:

Baking soda is a useful and effective home remedy for itching. To make a baking soda paste, mix together baking soda and water to desired consistency, and rub on affected areas as needed to treat an itch.

hi Neha, ideally you should go for delinking surgery before IVf to increase chances of conception. hydrosalpinx contains bad fluid which prevents Implantation. as you are having endometrosis chances of implantation will be less as compared to non endometrosis endometrium. if you have already started IVF cycle you can freeze embryos and after delinking plan embryo transfer.

If you want to ensure longevity and keep your body in the best shape, then you must take notice of your physical health. Your body is your ?buddy for life,? and how you take care of it can spell the difference between health and disease. Unfortunately, many people today are becoming reckless and unmindful of how they treat their body ? they eat highly processed foods, (unknowingly) become exposed to dangerous chemicals, and fail to get enough sleep and exercise.

At 18 it's better to be concerned about your own body. Eat healthy food and take less tension. You can walk for health as a simple exercise. Healthy body does need to be away from pollution and smoke. Transfats in burgers etc are bad, stay away. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. All of proteins supplements. Good luck.

I get very pain during periods in my back.(lumber region) .what should I do. Give me some home remedies.
Pain during periods may be due to spasm or some inflammation of pelvic organs. High Cranberry (Viburnum Opulus) is best remedy for back pain during periods. If it is not available at grocery store, you can get it from Homeopathic Store in the form of Vibunum Opulus Q. Take 5 drops thrice daily in one cup of lukewarm water.

Causes, Symptoms and Treatment of Miscarriage

MD
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Causes, Symptoms and Treatment of Miscarriage

A miscarriage is generally characterized by the loss of a fetus before the passage of around one forty days of pregnancy. In medical terminology, a miscarriage is usually referred to as a spontaneous abortion, precisely because it happens spontaneously. According to studies, about 50% of all pregnancies end up in miscarriages and around 80% of miscarriages occur within the first three months of pregnancy. If they happen to occur after the passage of twenty weeks of gestation, they are normally termed as late miscarriages.

Causes:
The most common cause of miscarriages is primarily due to the presence of some fatal or critical genetic problem in the unborn baby, which may or may not be in any way related to the mother. Apart from this, there is a host of other causes which are held responsible for miscarriages. These may include:

  1. Cervical insufficiency (weakness of the cervix)
  2. Infection
  3. Hormonal imbalances
  4. Physical problems in the mother
  5. Medical problems in the mother
  6. Immune system responses
  7. Uterine abnormalities

Symptoms:
Here are a few indicators of a miscarriage:

  1. Bleeding (which can vary from light to heavy bleeding)
  2. Abdominal pain
  3. Weakness
  4. Severe cramps
  5. Fever
  6. Back pain

Treatment:

  1. Treatment of miscarriages normally involves three steps - a pelvic exam, an ultrasound test and blood tests to confirm whether or not it is a miscarriage.
  2. If the miscarriage is complete and yet the uterus is still not emptied of its contents, then it may be necessary for you to undergo a dilation and curettage operation.
  3. If you have gone through multiple miscarriages in the past, then the treatment will probably involve a pelvic ultrasound, a hysterosalpingogram or a hysteroscopy.

9 Surprising Headache Triggers You Didn’t Know About!

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
9 Surprising Headache Triggers You Didn’t Know About!
9 surprising headache triggers you didn’t know about

The reason behind your headache is not always common cold or loud music. Headaches can be triggered by a host of reasons, some of which can truly surprise you.

Check these 9 unexpected reasons that can make you reach for that aspirin.

1. Your weight
A recent study revealed that people with mild obesity, which means a body mass index (BMI) of 30, were 35% more likely to get headaches than those with a lower BMI. In fact, those who have a BMI of 40, and are quite overweight, had their chances increased up to 80%. Why exactly this happens is yet to be determined.

2. Your manager
Excessive work pressure can cause stress; and anything that causes your stress levels to rise can make you prone to tension headaches and migraines. Stress and headaches are interrelated. When you feel stressed out, the nerves in your brain that relay pain become much more sensitive. This, as a consequence causes that nagging headache.

3. Sex
In a survey conducted recently, 46% people said that sex was the prime reason behind their headaches. This kind of headache arises as a result of overexertion, and can even be caused while exercising. During sex, you may feel a dull headache that either increases during foreplay or orgasm due intense physical activity. This type of headache is common in men and is mostly harmless.

4. Cheese and wine
Aged cheese including varieties such as cheddar, Swiss, parmesan or blue cheese contains a substance called tyramine. This substance is a headache trigger for many people. The more aged the cheese, the higher the chances of getting a headache after eating it.
The same holds true for red wine. Tyramine, flavonoids and other substances that are present in red wine (and other alcoholic drinks) may contribute to your headaches. While the relation between the two is not very clear, the changes in the levels of serotonin (which is a chemical in the brain responsible for maintaining mood balance) may give rise to headaches after alcohol consumption.

5. Your daily cuppa coffee
Caffeine in moderation can actually cure your headaches, and is a part of several headache medications. But too much of caffeine can be the reason behind that painful headache. This happens when the medicinal effect of caffeine wears off, triggering a worse headache than before.
Apart from that caffeine withdrawal too can cause headaches. Since caffeine is responsible for narrowing the blood vessels, which surround your brain, when you stop consuming caffeine these blood vessels expand again, which causes pain.

6. Your hair band
How you style your hair can cause a headache. Tying your hair too tightly can strain the tissue in your scalp, which causes you to experience frequent headaches. Whether you braid your hair, make a ponytail, or wear a tight hat, all of them can trigger a headache. Usually, letting your hair down can sort out this problem.

7. Powerful aroma
A powerful smell, even if it’s pleasing, can be the reason behind headaches in many people. Though why this happens is not very clear yet, the reason may be that strong smells can cause disturbances in your nervous system, which as a result can lead to a headache. Smell of perfumes, paints and certain types of flowers are the most common headache triggers in this category.

8. The weather
Weather changes, like a heat wave or a cold snap for example, can increase the chances of headache in some people. Very sunny, hot days with high levels of humidity, rain, strong winds, and changes in the barometric pressure levels are other common causes of headaches. Such weather changes trigger electrical and chemical changes in the brain, which irritate the nerves and result in a headache.

9. Unhealthy posture
A poor posture can put unnecessary pressure on your head and neck muscles, which, as a consequence, can cause headaches. Usually, this kind of headache originates in the base of the skull, and its effect can be felt on the face, especially in the forehead area. Hunching your shoulders and cradling the phone between your ear and shoulders are some of the examples of poor posture that can lead to headaches.
Stay away from these things for a headache-free life.

Alcohol Consumption During Pregnancy

MBBS, DGO, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MRCOG
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Alcohol Consumption During Pregnancy

Alcohol Consumption During Pregnancy

In today's world, it is fairly common for women to drink alcohol at various social get togethers. Women are keen to know the effects of social drinking on their pregnancy and have a lot of queries regarding the same during and after the pregnancy is over.

How do we measure alcoholic drinks?

Alcohol is traditionally measured in units.One unit of alcohol is defined as 10 ml of pure ethanol in UK, and as 10 grams (12.7 ml) in Australia.One unit is the amount of alcohol the average adult can process within an hour. This means that if the average adult drinks a drink with one unit of alcohol in it, within an hour there should in theory be no alcohol left in their bloodstream, but that length of time could differ depending on a person's body size.
The alcohol content in drinks is also expressed as a percentage of the whole drink. If you take a look at the label of a bottle of wine or a can of lager you will see either a percentage, followed by the abbreviation 'ABV' which stands for alcohol by volume, or sometimes just the word 'vol'. So, wine that says '13 ABV' on its label contains 13% pure alcohol.

An average bottle of wine is about 12% strength. A bottle of whisky is about 40% strength. The higher the percentage, the more alcohol a drink has in it. A glass of whisky, therefore, is stronger than a glass of wine.

One must keep in mind that drinks poured at home tend to be larger measures than those provided in pubs and restaurants.

The maximum number of units of alcohol permitted for a non-pregnant woman is
14 units per week.

- Light drinking is defined as under 2 units a day.
- Heavy drinking is defined as over 6 units a day.

Binge drinking is having more than 5 units on any single occasions. This may make you drunk faster and more prone to unprotected sex, infections and accidents. Hence binge drinking is considered more harmful.

How does alcohol affect pregnancy?

The alcohol gets absorbed from a woman's stomach into her blood and then passes into the baby's blood through the placenta and umbilical cord. When a woman is drinking regularly during her pregnancy, it can disrupt the baby's normal development in the uterus.

Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can affect not only the way the baby develops in the uterus but also her health at birth and the baby's susceptibility to illness in infancy, childhood, adolescence and adult life. Some children born to heavily alcoholic mothers may experience learning difficulties in their adult life.

The effects of drinking alcohol are most harmful for the baby when a woman drinks just before and during early pregnancy. When she cuts down or stops drinking at any point during pregnancy, it can make a positive difference to the baby's growth. However, sometimes once the damage has been done, it cannot be reversed.

If you are a heavy drinker and then stop drinking immediately, you could experience side effects such as withdrawal, delirium and other difficulties. So if you want to stop drinking, you should discuss this first with your doctor, who will be able to help you to manage any side effects.

How much is safe to drink during pregnancy?

We do not have very clear understanding as to the absolute amount which is safe during pregnancy so to avoid even the minimum harm to the baby we recommend not to drink at all during pregnancy or while you are trying for a baby.

If at all you do drink, you should:

1) not drink more than a safe amount, which is defined as not more than one or two units, not more than once or twice per week .

2) avoid binge drinking and becoming drunk.

3) Try and pour your own drinks so you know exactly how much alcohol has gone into your glass.

4) preferably drink at home.

What happens if you are drinking too much during your pregnancy?

If you are drinking more than two units on more than two occasions a week, then there is an increased risk of:

- miscarriage (associated with more than 6 units of alcohol per day)

- stillbirth at any gestational age

- poor growth and development of the baby in the womb. It may even affect the baby's brain development which cannot be reversed later on.

- the baby may be born too early or too small.

- the baby being affected with a physical disability after birth or having learning difficulties.

- the baby may be more susceptible to illness later on in adult life.

After birth a baby born to a heavily alcoholic mother can have various learning difficulties, low academic achievement, behavior or, psychiatric problems and physical disabilities.

What is fetal alcohol syndrome?

It is a very uncommon syndrome and does not occur unless the woman drinks very heavily throughout pregnancy (over 6 units a day). Once the baby is born, there is no cure for fetal alcohol syndrome.A diagnosis of fetal alcohol syndrome is made only after the baby's birth.

What is fetal alcohol spectrum disorder?

Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder is a milder form of fetal alcohol syndrome and occurs when a woman drinks more than 2 units a day during her pregnancy.

Whether or not a baby is affected mildly or severely with FASD is directly linked to how much and how often a woman drinks during her pregnancy. If drinking is reduced and a woman stays within the recommended limit, some of the potentially damaging effects can be reversed. The baby will begin to grow normally in the womb.

What happens if you or your partner drink too much before you are pregnant?

If you are planning a pregnancy, it is advisable to stay within a safe limit during this time. Alcohol can adversely affect a woman and a man's ability to conceive and may lead to early miscarriage.

However one single episode of binge drinking around the time of conception is not likely to be harmful to a woman or her baby.

heavy drinking is known to be associated with a low sperm count. If your husband is drinking heavily, you may find it more difficult to conceive as a couple.

Even when you are breastfeeding you should ideally not drink at all or keep to less than two units as alcohol is excreted in breast milk and may affect the baby's development.

Yes you can have a safe next pregnancy, before going for next pregnancy give a gap of at-least 5-6 so that you can recover from the weakness and gain uterine strength of next conception, till then take adequate nutritious diet with fruits vegetable and dairy products, also take iron and calcium tablets for 3 months to meet the deficiency from previous pregnancy.
