Monsoon And Infection!

MBBS, DDV
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Monsoon And Infection!

One of the side-effects of monsoon, besides waterlogging, is the health hazard the rain brings with it - cases of vector-borne, fungal, allergies and parasitic infections. The worse hits are the children, who are susceptible to viral and skin infections after getting wet.

We should avoid getting drenched and should always carry an umbrella. Even when we are drenched, we must immediately follow preventive measures because if left untreated, it can leave permanent scars on the skin. In case of a skin infection, use an anti-fungal powder to avoid any further infection. Always keep your skin dry. Don't wear wet clothes. Also, wet shoes should be changed instantly. These small precautions go a long way in having a healthy and infection-free skin.

Medicines are right. Nothing in life is without side effects but when effects outweigh side effects they are advised. Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle, day of ovulation when ovum is released from ovary of woman. This sometimes is tricky in PCOS so have patience and continue with Gynecologist infertility specialist for further management.

Foreign Bodies - How They Affect Body System?

MBBS
ENT Specialist, Roorkee
Foreign Bodies - How They Affect Body System?

Just because a person is not suffering from any ailment does not mean that there is no requirement of medical supervision. For example, a person’s ear, nose and throat are those passages of the body, from where maximum amount of organisms enter and exit. There is every possibility that unwanted elements or what is otherwise called a foreign body, may make its way into the system through any of these three body parts. These elements do not cause any necessary reactions in the short-term, but may have possible consequences in the long run.

Fungus is one such external element, which people are not able to see or feel the effect of. If it is allowed to accumulate over the years, it is likely that there may be some sort of hearing impairment and getting this fungus out is a difficult task for the ENT specialist.

Mucus in the nose is another element, which may tend to cause problems in the long run unless it is addressed immediately.  The mouth is, by far, the most susceptible area as far as foreign body intrusions are concerned because it is that part of the body that is used for ingestion.

An ENT specialist usually applies a number of techniques in order to remove such unwanted elements, which may have consequences;

Forceps are most commonly used in situations where the doctor can actually see what is causing the blockage. Water irrigation is one method by means of which a gush of water is used to flush out all the unwanted elements. This is used in a situation when the medical practitioner is not able to access the problem area directly.

Suction catheters are used when the unwanted elements cannot be seen properly and the only way of getting them out is to force them out. Since the exact problem area cannot be seen or identified, using techniques which may be intrusive and harmful can have detrimental outcomes. That is why using a suction to push it all out is the most effective because there is absolutely no harm that can come from air being pushed down.

However, the important thing to keep in mind is that long-term complications can be avoided by periodic trips to the ENT specialist. It’s not necessary that you should have some discomfort or problem in order to pay a visit to the doctor.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I advise you to do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning. Take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid garlic and red chilly at home and avoid non veg and eggs. Keep your weight normal as compared to your height. These will help you in getting pregnant.

Nail Bed Infection

MBBS, MS-General Surgery , FMAS, FIAGES
General Surgeon, Gurgaon
Nail Bed Infection

Paronychia is a soft tissue infection around a fingernail that begins as cellulitis but that may progress to a definite abscess. The 2 types of paronychia are as follows :

  • Acute paronychia - Painful and purulent condition; most frequently caused by staphylococci.

  • Chronic paronychia - Usually caused by a fungal infection

The image below depicts paronychia.

Classic presentation of paronychia, with erythema and pus surrounding the nail bed.

Signs and symptoms

Physical findings in acute paronychia include the following:

  • The affected area often appears erythematous and swollen

  • In more advanced cases, pus may collect under the skin of the lateral fold

  • If untreated, the infection can extend into the eponychium, in which case it is called eponychia

Further extension of the infection can lead to the involvement of both lateral folds as it tracks under the nail sulcus; this progression is called a runaround infection.

Physical findings in chronic paronychia include the following:

  • Swollen, erythematous, and tender nail folds without fluctuance are characteristic of chronic paronychia

  • Eventually, the nail plates become thickened and discolored, with pronounced transverse ridges

  • The cuticles and nail folds may separate from the nail plate, forming a space for the invasion of various microorganisms

Diagnosis

The diagnosis of paronychia is based primarily on patient history and physical examination. Some laboratory studies, however, can be useful. These include the following:

  • Gram staining and/or culture - To help identify a bacterial cause of fluctuant paronychia.

  • Potassium hydroxide (KOH) 5% smears - To help diagnose fluctuant paronychia caused by a candidal infection

Management

Treatment strategies for paronychia include the following:

  • If soft tissue swelling is present without fluctuance, the infection may resolve with warm soaks 3-4 times daily

  • Patients with extensive surrounding cellulitis or with a history of diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, or an immunocompromised state may benefit from a short course of antibiotics

  • If an abscess has developed, incision and drainage must be performed.

Mu wife had ectopic pregnancy in last nov and had an operation to remove the same. Please advice when we can try for a next pregnancy and what all percuations we have to take

MBBS (Gold Medalist, Hons), MS (Obst and Gynae- Gold Medalist), DNB (Obst and Gynae), Fellow- Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (ACOG, USA), FIAOG
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
You can try for pregnancy after 3 months after the operation. Please remember, after one ectopic, chance of having 2nd ectopic increases by 10% but there is 40% chance of having a live baby in next pregnancy. There are nothing much precautions to follow except that you should consult your gynaecologist to find out the cause of the ectopic, if any cause is found (like infection, endometriosis etc). If the cause is found, that should be treated. Otherwise, you should try for natural conception and consult doctor as soon as she misses period, as there is need of very close monitoring in next pregnancy. Wishing you all the best

Which is most important (for either pregnant women or normal people) May b white layer or yellow part?
White of egg is protein and healthy for all ,and yellow is fat, which if taken daily gets your cholesterol and triglycerides elevated ,so ideally don't take yellow part of your triglycerides and cholesterol is already on higher side.

What are the symptoms and side effects of early labor delivery? Why early labor causes?
These babies are known as preemies or premmies. Symptoms of preterm labor include uterine contractions which occur more often than every ten minutes or the leaking of fluid from the vagina. These risks are greater the earlier a baby is born. The cause of preterm birth is often not known.

Vagina can not get loose with single act of sex. Your hymen is definitely torn, which can be repaired with a special minor surgery called as hymenoplasty. Still if you feel the vagina has become lax you can do kegel exercise by correct method to tighten it.

Hello- Some times sex or extra physical exertion done just before menses result in irregular flow of blood on due date. Since your partner has bled during her menses (irrespective of the amount), she can't be pregnant. Pregnancy is symbolized by complete absence of menses.

I had a problem of scratching near vaginal area and inside also. Suggest me something to overcome.

Diploma in Acupuncture, BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Allowing the vaginal area to remain moist due to sweat and water is one reason for cultivation of bacteria, yeast, fungus allowing it to create infections and causing itch, redness, pain etc. Or there may some kind of allergy to certain products. To avoid such kind of problems you can use_ vaginal wash twice a day. Keep the genital area dry and clean or can use anti bacterial talc for genitals. Maintaining hygiene is an important factors to avoid such sufferings. Use cotton linen. ***salt bath: salt can effectively remove itching and bacteria due to its antibacterial properties. Wash your vagina with concentrated salt water whenever you feel the itch. This will give you great relief instantly and prevent further multiplication of bacteria. Wishing heath and wellness.
