What is a best exercise a 77 year old can do on a daily basis. Especially on scorching summer months I am having diabetes for the last 10 years also having blood pressure. Both under control by taking medicines and insulin 16 units one time in the morning.
I am unable to eat little spicy food and some reduction in mouth I have habits of eating tobbaco n betl nuts. Now what can I do. And from last 2 month I am having pain in my chest. Which type of symptoms is this or what treatment I should take.
I have diabetes since last 15 years and it is largely controlled but time and again it goes beyond the regulated limits. I am experiencing pain in my feet and maybe because of neuropathy, and there is also a sense of numbness. Lately is is seen that the third toe on my right leg has curved downward. Can you suggest treatment for the above and who should be consulted. Thanks/regards
Tight foreskin refers to the tightness of the skin that covers the tip of the male genitals. It leads to discomfort and pain to roll the skin back over the end of the genitals which may cause difficulty in having intercourse.
What happens when the condition is neglected?
If this condition is neglected, then it may lead to the folding of the foreskin on the neck of the penis permanently. This would cause severe pain when you try to bring back the foreskin to its actual position. This condition is known as paraphimosis. If you try to bring back the skin to its normal position forcefully, then it may lead to abrasions over the penis tip.
What can be done for preventing the problem of tight foreskin?
You should try to stretch the foreskin as wide as possible several times in a day. You may do it when you pass urine. In an attempt to stretch the foreskin, you should try to revert the foreskin gradually over the glans penis which is the tip of the penis lying underneath the foreskin.
What are the home remedies for tight foreskin?
You would be surprised to know that there are home remedies available for tight foreskin which help in reversing the condition without the need for undergoing phimosis surgery. You can take up castor oil or some Ayurvedic herbal oil or coconut oil and apply it on the tip of the penis and the foreskin and try to stretch it slowly as wide as possible. You should do this many times a day for about 2 to 3 months to get effective results.
How does this Ayurvedic treatment help?
The foreskin has a natural ability to stretch and the application of herbal or Ayurvedic oil further helps in improving the stretching capacity and the strength of the skin. This assists in widening the opening of the skin covering of the male genitals. As a result, the foreskin effortlessly reverts over the tip of the penis.
What are the special considerations to be taken care of?
You should not attempt to revert the skin fully on the very first trial. If you try to overstretch it, the foreskin may fold back but it would become very difficult to get it back to its normal position and that may cause pain and discomfort. This condition is called paraphimosis and if it gets stuck in this condition, you should apply the herbal or Ayurvedic oils and massage in circular motions to relieve the condition.

Some diseases like chicken pox, measles etc. have definitive symptoms that make it easy to diagnose. However, others like lupus affect each person in a different way making them complex diseases that may take longer to diagnose. Lupus attacks the immune system and causes the antibodies that would normally fight infection to react against the body’s own cells and tissues. There are two main forms of lupus; systemic lupus that affects any part of the body and cutaneous lupus that affects the skin. These can occur simultaneously or on their own.
Some of the rashes that can be caused by cutaneous lupus are:
- Malar rash or butterfly rash: This affects the face and appears as a butterfly shaped rash over the nose and cheeks. It is triggered by the sun’s uv rays and can appear as a faint blush or a severe, scaly rash.
- Discoid lupus: Lupus can also cause small. Coin shaped sores or rashes. These are reddish and scaly in appearance and usually affect parts of the body exposed to sunlight and uv radiation. If left untreated, these sores can worsen with time. Though they do not cause pain or itchiness, they can result in scarring. In cases where these sores develop on the scalp, they can cause permanent bald patches.
- Subacute cutaneous lesions: These can be described as small, red sores that are shaped like coins. These can be found on the arms, shoulders, neck and chest in patches that resemble psoriasis. These lesions are also triggered by uv exposure. Though they do not cause scarring, these lesions can lighten or darken skin.
- Mucous membrane lesions: Sores in the mouth or nose that have been triggered by lupus are known as mucous membrane lesions.
- Baldness: Lupus can make the hair follicles near the scalp fragile and brittle. This can destroy the hair follicles and lead to hair fall. In some cases, hair may grow back while in others it could result in permanent baldness.
- Cutaneous vasculitis lesions: These refer to purplish spots or lines on the calves and feet. This is caused by the inflammation of skin tissues and can cause severe damage and gangrene.
- Raynaud's phenomenon: When exposed to cold, the skin on your fingers and toes may also change colour to red, white or blue due to lupus. This is triggered by the tightening of blood vessels and may be accompanied by a tingling sensation or numbness. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist.
