u get yourself investigated first for such prolonged fever. ? Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as one of the body's natural defenses against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperatures..Also, the body's defense mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature ? Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or higher may be dangerous and demand immediate treatment The following medications may be used at home for mild to moderate fever : ? Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used for fever in children or adolescents or during a viral illness. ? An individual with a fever should be kept comfortable and not overdressed. Overdressing can cause the temperature to rise further.wear loose fitting clothes. ? Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths are a home remedy that may help bring down a fever ? The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. ? A fever can cause anyone to become very dehydrated. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami,Amla juice etc. ? Wash your hands frequently every day with soap and warm water for 15-20 seconds; especially before meals, or each time after you have returned from a public place or used public transport. ? Further therapy depends on the cause of the fever and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

It's always better to keep it clean and closed with a dressing done by a doctor. Keeping open is fine if you will wash wound and apply ointment regularly and make sure no dust or flies come on the wound. Also the ointment applied previous day is washed off before applying a fresh layer. But surgical dressing is the best for hygiene and reducing pain.

I was born during month of january, cold month in chennai and my mother used to tell at the time of birth itself I am suffered from cold. Till today I am suffering from cold and when I took ct scan, doctor said there is small projections in my nose i. E, sinus and it should be operated by laser treatment. They also said if you do operation also again the sinus will formed. Over many years when I received headache on daily basis I used to take amoxillin, paracetamol and avil. After some one advised that kindney problem will come if you use paracetamol. The some years I used otrivin o nasal drops. They many of them advised that there is steroid in the otrivin o which leads to lot of side effect. Some years I used siddha. Now I switched on to homeopathy where small tablets and tincture is given as oral tablets and liquids. Many of them told me that till death it will be there and there is no treatment. Still I am suffering from sinus where the cold will be formed on every half hour and I use to let it out by giving pressure to nose and cleaning the cold with fingers inserting in the nose which leads to oversize of my nose also. I think I am suffering for sinus for the past 46 years i. E, my age. I kindly request to give advise on what to do?

Hi. I am 21 years old but sometimes night fall in night it is naturally or not ?
You will not actually lose anything when you release your semen during the night while sleeping. After attaining adolescence our bodies will change due to the increased synthesis of male hormones (in case of males) like testosterone. Testosterone is a steroidal hormone which is responsible for sperm production in the testicles and development of our secondary sexual characters. When the semen produced in the body is too much to hold in the testicles themselves, it is released voluntarily or involuntarily, as in wet dreams or night fall (during sleep). There is nothing to worry about as it is absolutely normal and natural. The body has to get rid of old semen in reserve to produce new semen. The homeostatis (automatic balance) of the body is responsible for regulating these functions involuntarily (without our conscious control). If you want to prevent this at all, then you can wash both your feet in cold water (down from the knees) and drink two glasses of water. Wet dreams will be reduced to some extent. For nightfall medicenes are tentex forte tab 2 times a day and triphala churna and dhatupusti churna 2 times a day.
