You can start using Bioforce's Blooume - 55 ointment (for clear skin) twice daily and also use Bakson's Suncare Sunscreen, 20-30 minutes before stepping out under the sun. Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Use home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off.

Correlation Between Smoking and Erectile Dysfunction in Men

MD - General Medicine

Correlation Between Smoking and Erectile Dysfunction in Men

There are many factors such as physical and psychological factors in their wide rages that can cause erectile dysfunction in men. One of the causes is known to be smoking because smoking has the capability to destroy blood vessels and arteries not to open well enough to allow free flow of blood. The World Health Organization always warn that smokers are liable to die young because of many health risks they exposing themselves to. Among many such diseases include heart disease, stroke, cardiovascular diseases, and pulmonary disease.

Do not let it cross your mind that Viagra will be of help. Recent findings had revealed that, for a rigid, stronger and quicker erection in men, smoking must be stopped.

This writes up tends to do justice to the correlation between smoking and erectile dysfunction in men and as well shed light on many reasons why you need to quit smoking because smoking can damage blood vessels and impede regular blood flow that can cause erectile dysfunction.

Signs and Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

There are many signs and causes of erectile dysfunction in men. There is a great need to seek medical help for any of the signs that will later be listed here, most especially if it has been re-occurring.

This will enable your medical doctor to examine the fundamental cause and what are needed to be treated. Recent findings have shown that there is a strong correlation between smoking and erectile dysfunction and males who completely quit smoking can have stronger, more rigid erections when compared to those who do not quit.

Signs of Erectile Dysfunction

Below are the signs and symptoms of erectile dysfunction:

  • Dropped interest in sex
  • Difficulty in having rigid erection
  • Inability to sustain an erection while having sex

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
As it was mentioned earlier, there are many causes of erectile dysfunction. Listed below are the major causes of ED:

How is Erection Possible?
Erection occurs when there is an increase in blood flow to the penis which is always stirred by sexual imaginations or physical touch with the penis. When stirred, the penis becomes relax and make way for increases blood flow via the penile arteries into the two chambers in the penis which is referred to as the corpora cavernosa.

As soon as the chambers become filled up, the penis becomes rigid. When the muscles contract and the accrued blood flow out via the penile veins, then erection become placid.

Consequent upon the above, erectile dysfunction happens when there is an issue at any stage of the process.

However, the chemicals present in cigarette have the capacity to destroy the blood vessels in men's penis and affect its rigidity. The chemicals not only have adverse effects on the penis but also injure the kidneys, lung, brain, heart and many tissues in the entire body.

Revelation from Researches

Studies have shown that men who smoke cause more harm to their sperm than those who do not smoke. Smokers' testes and accessory glands were observed to have inflammation which results in damaged sperm. This smoking habit negatively affects the health movement in the sperm that leads to increased DNA fragmentation in the sperm.

Erectile dysfunction is known to develop at any adult stage. But it tends to be common as men advance in age. Researchers have discovered that the fundamental problem of erectile dysfunction in younger men is most likely caused by inhalation from a cigarette.

People who smoke are at much higher risk of having erectile dysfunction compared to non-smokers. The level of damages done to your erectile function, your age and damage to other parts of the body can affect the level of erectile function reversibility when you quit smoking.

Impacts of Smoking on the Sexual Health

Active smoking and in some instances passive smoking can cause erectile dysfunction. Smoking has the capacity to destroy healthy muscles in the penis which in-turn affect erectile functioning. This also can lead to a lesser libido.

Cigarette smoking has an adverse effect on the sex life of both men and women and brings about infertility. Also, there is this problem of having a reduction in the size of the penis. Now, imagine the psychological effects it will have on someone who is used to having a larger size of a penis. There is the problem of infertility too.

Coping and Managing Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction has a demonstrative impact on the affected man and his partner. Men with this condition usually feel frustrated, sad, little or no confidence and furious let alone a partner who is being denied sexual pleasure. The good news is that erectile dysfunction or impotence can be treated.

Some of the steps in alleviating this issue include being honest, opening up to both your partner and the doctor. Communication is an essential tool in the analysis and management of the state of your health. There is a great need to always let your partner know how you are feeling for adequate support and assistance.

Also, note that you will require patience with self in your treatment and recovery process, having it in mind that individual response to treatment is relative.

Helpful Hints on How to Quit Smoking

The best decisive actions are always meant to be taken now. If you have been contemplating to stop smoking cigarettes, now is the best time to quit such a harmful habit. Researchers have confirmed it that smokers are at a higher risk of developing erectile dysfunction compared to nonsmokers.

There are a lot of immediate and long-term benefits of stopping such a harmful habit (smoking), one of such is improved blood circulation within your body systems.

Always do regular exercise, consume a balanced diet, maintain normal weight, zero cigarettes, zero alcohol, minimize your stress and avoid high blood pressure.

Hello- Intake of spicy diet/curd items, lack of sleep and excess of sex causes burning and pain in the penis during sex. It can further get worse and can cause a infection. Excess of water will only increase your urine output, it has nothing to do with the symptoms of seminal pathway. As you love sex and perform that on daily basis I recommend you to use aphrodisiac medicines. These medicines will cure your current symptoms completely, will boost up your sexual health and pleasure and will going to neutralize the other side effects of excessive sex.

Dear Lybrate User, There is no specific medicine to increase the size of penis. However, you may have come across a number of gimmicking advertisement of medicines which claim to increase the size of penis. Do not fall prey for any such advertisement because the penis would not get bigger unless there is an increase of the size of the underlying vascular muscles of penis The size of penis depends on four factors:- 1) HEIGHT OF THE PERSON :- Every organ of a taller person posses greater dimension than those of a shorter person. 2) TESTOSTERONE HORMONE:- Less secretion of this hormone leads to underdevelopment of sexual organs 3) SEXUAL DISEASES:- Patients suffering from Erectile dysfunction often complaints of short penis. 4) FATTY TUMMY:- With every increase of 6 kg in weight, the waistline is increased up to 2 cm. This fatty layer of abdomen conceals 2 cm of the length of penis by surrounding it. The plan of action behind increasing the size of penis is to increase the size of those underlying muscles of penis But before the treatment to increase the size of penis is being started it is necessary to identify which of the aforesaid causes is the root of the problem. Unless those causes are eradicated the treatment of penis enlargement will not be effective. So I would suggest you to consult me privately via Lybrate as it is very necessary to diagnose the proper underlying cause of your problem if you are wishing for a permanent relief from your problems. A permanent annihilation of the underlying cause of the disease will not only provide you relief from your troubles but it will also cease any chance of further relapse of that particular disease condition. You can consult me privately through my private URL https://www.Lybrate.com/baharampur/doctor/dr-prithviraj-singha-homeopath After opening that aforesaid URL, click on the CONSULT ONLINE option & pay the consultation fees of Rs 100/- only. As you pay the consultation fees, Lybrate will open a private chatbox through which you will be able to discuss your ailments with me for the next 7 days & get a comprehensive treatment procedure for your problems thereafter. Kindly note that if you indulge in sexual relation after an interval of minimum 7 days then you are bound to discharge quickly during intercourse but that does not imply that you have any disease. It occurs due to loss of control of the muscles of penis. Normally it is seen that when a person does sexual intercourse daily he gains control over the muscles of penis & can stay longer during sex. But if you notice that you are ejaculating quickly in spite of daily sexual interaction then you need to take Homoeopathic Dilution TITANIUM 200, 5 drops, thrice daily, in empty stomach to get rid of Premature Ejaculation. Also notice whether you are having a second erection within 15 minutes of ejaculation for the first time. If you are not experiencing any second erection within 15 minutes of first  ejaculation & the first ejaculation happens quickly then you are surely suffering from ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION. There will be a change of medication in this case. To get rid of Erectile Dysfunction you need to take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture DAMIANA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Kindly note that this medication may not be sufficient enough to take care of your problem. These medicines are based on the symptoms of your diseased condition & these medicines need to be complemented by further deep-acting remedies in order to permanently eliminate the underlying cause of the disease. So I would suggest you to consult me privately via Lybrate as it is very necessary to diagnose the proper underlying cause of your problem if you are wishing for a permanent relief from your problems. A permanent annihilation of the underlying cause of the disease will not only provide you relief from your troubles but it will also cease any chance of further relapse of that particular disease condition. You can consult me privately through my private URL https://www.Lybrate.com/baharampur/doctor/dr-prithviraj-singha-homeopath After opening that aforesaid URL, click on the CONSULT ONLINE option As you pay the consultation fees, Lybrate will open a private chatbox through which you will be able to discuss your ailments with me for the next 7 days & get a comprehensive treatment procedure for your problems thereafter.

Feeling sleepy, foggy thinking, unable to concentrate, pains inside the head, constipation, memory loss.
Hello Lybrate user Concentration is a state of mind. Clarity of thoughts can be achieved very easily with the steps mentioned below: 1. Whenever you are confused, and are in a state of utter overwhelm, take a pen and paper and write down your thoughts. If you carry cell phone all the time, make use of your notepad in it. 2. Then, think rationally which thoughts are useful and which ones are garbage. 3. Focus and keep the useful ones and discard the useless ones then and there. Think only about the ones that are useful. 4. This will help you to cut through overwhelm and have amazing clarity of thoughts. Improving your memory: 9 tips for boosting brain power at any age They say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but when it comes to the brain, scientists have discovered that this old adage simply isn’t true. The human brain has an astonishing ability to adapt and change—even into old age. This ability is known as neuroplasticity. With the right stimulation, your brain can form new neural pathways, alter existing connections, and adapt and react in ever-changing ways. The brain’s incredible ability to reshape itself holds true when it comes to learning and memory. You can harness the natural power of neuroplasticity to increase your cognitive abilities, enhance your ability to learn new information, and improve your memory at any age. These 9 tips can show you how: Give your brain a workout Don't skip the physical exercise Get your Zs There is a big difference between the amount of sleep you can get by on and the amount you need to function at your best. The truth is that over 95% of adults need between 7.5 to 9 hours of sleep every night in order to avoid sleep deprivation. Even skimping on a few hours makes a difference! Memory, creativity, problem-solving abilities, and critical thinking skills are all compromised. But sleep is critical to learning and memory in an even more fundamental way. Research shows that sleep is necessary for memory consolidation, with the key memory-enhancing activity occurring during the deepest stages of sleep. Get on a regular sleep schedule. Go to bed at the same time every night and get up at the same time each morning. Try not to break your routine, even on weekends and holidays. Avoid all screens for at least an hour before bed. The blue light emitted by TVs, tablets, phones, and computers trigger wakefulness and suppress hormones such as melatonin that make you sleepy. Cut back on caffeine. Caffeine affects people differently. Some people are highly sensitive, and even morning coffee may interfere with sleep at night. Try reducing your intake or cutting it out entirely if you suspect it’s keeping you up. Make time for friends Keep stress in check Have a laugh Eat a brain-boosting diet Identify and treat health problems Take practical steps to support learning and memory like Pay attention Involve as many senses as possible Relate information to what you already know For more complex material, focus on understanding basic ideas Concentration 10 ways to increase your concentration Understand what concentration is: “Concentration is taking your mind off many things and putting it on one thing at a time.” Decide what you want to concentrate on. In many ways, you become what you focus on — that is, you take on some of its characteristics. Have you ever noticed how couples who have been married for many years start to look like each other, or how people often come to resemble their pets, their cars, their hobbies, or their work projects? Watch other people concentrating. Go see a good action movie. In the middle of it, look around at the people in the theater. What are they doing? They are absolutely still, eyes barely blinking, and their breath is slower. It would take a really major distraction to break their attention stream. These physical signs may give you a hint about ways to increase your own concentration abilities. Avoid constant sensory input.Multi-tasking (trying to do more than one thing at a time), loud noises, and visual stimulation (such as from a T.V.) make concentration much more difficult, and being around them or doing them too much can put you into a habit of non-attention which can be hard to break. Make it a point to put your full concentration on whatever you are doing. Don’t let anything distract you. It really helps to be in a quiet place, but you can learn to block out noise if necessary. Stay calm. Deep concentration is a matter of increasing or directing your life-force or conscious, cosmic energy. The more of this kind of energy you have, the better. Scattered energy doesn’t help. It must be calm, focused energy. Learn to be calmly concentrated and be concentratedly calm. Learn techniques to increase and control your energy. One such technique is Paramhansa Yogananda’s energization energies. Controlling your energy is an important first step toward the ability to concentrate deeply. Take breaks. Go outside and breathe deeply or take a brisk walk. Make yourself do this often and you’ll be able to return to your task recharged and ready to focus more creatively. Learn to meditate. Meditation is the most powerful of all concentration enhancement techniques. Learn a few simple meditation techniques and practice them at least five minutes daily. While meditating, watch your breath — don’t control it in any way, just observe. This teaches you to focus your mind on one thing at a time. As you observe your breath, it will slow down, along with your mind (this is scientifically well-documented), and you move into a dynamic, peaceful (but not sleepy) state of being. Your mind will become recharged and creatively receptive. I hope these things will definitely help you to improve your memory and concentration. ALL THE BEST
