I am suffering from itching in head, in hair roots of my head for last 2 years. I have shown this to allopathic, ayurvedic and homeopathic. But the itching is not going off. What should I do.

Hello- Itching and dandruff in head might be due to poor hygienic care of scalp and improper digestion. Follow these tips and medicines- 1)Avoid fast foods and late night workouts(waking up after 10 makes your skin dry). 2.Use Presorea anti dandruff ayurvedic shampoo (It contains tea tree oil which is one of the best herbal remedies for dandruff and itching) 3.Use Dhurdhurpatradi hair oil(Its contents repair damaged scalp tissue and hence remove itchingand dandruff naturally and make your hairs strong and silky.) 4.In home remedies- Apply lemon juice once in a week in your scalp to avoid itching recurrence.

Dear user. Men who are uncircumcised (who have the foreskin remaining around the penis) are prone to balanitis, an inflammation of the foreskin that is often caused by poor hygiene, irritation, or infections. Penile itch is not an emergency, but it may be a sign of a disease that can be transmitted to others. Do consult a skin specialist for physical investigation. Take care.

I need some more details from you to guide you effectively, like weight, height, waist circumference and level of activity (exercising). You have also not mentioned sugar levels and hba1c also. I need them to guide you. Still a few things I want you to follow 1) do regular pranayama, if you know the details or learn it 2) do certain yoga asanas like manduk asana, pawanmuktasana etc. 3) increase consumption of fiber in your diet by using fenugreek seeds, more green salads. I await your reply.

I have been detected diabetes with hb1 6.7 in jan2016. Doctor advice me to diet control and come after rwo month. Now I have got checked hb-1 5.7. At the same time I also have detected with 60-70percent blockage in LAD and LCX. What I have to do.

MD - General Medicine
General Physician, Delhi
Your weight for the height is high, you should focus on reducing your weight. Start with walking and exercising, that will help increase the hdl which is the good cholesterol, and it will also help reduce ldl which is bad cholesterol that results into blockage of arteries. Get your blood pressure and sugar checked regularly. You might need some medicines in order to keep the sugar and bp in check.

Do a head massage with warm oil. You can use any oil or tungadrumadi taila which is an ayurvedic oil for inducing good sleep. After massage, go for a warm shower and drink warm milk with little ghee in it. Practice meditation daily for 20 min at least.

I am 29 year old and my back is painful in the morning (spine) but after taking bath it reduces pain, year ago my knee and hip was painful doctor told me that your uric acid level is increase he prescribed mi gout check, pan 40 for 4 month but from last 3 months my back is so painful.My uric acid level is increases.

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout or uric acid problems from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: beef kidneys brains dried beans and peas liver mackerel mushrooms lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats and get always be on a prescribed diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian. I am a registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator and a doctor, consult privately for detailed treatment plans using diet and medications.

Pulmonary Fibrosis - Symptoms And Causes

Pulmonary Fibrosis - Symptoms And Causes

One of the essential chemical processes within the human body is that of the oxygenation of the blood. This needs to be done to carry oxygen to the various vital organs and also continue with many of the essential functions within the body. There are few causes for lung fibrosis. When no cause is found it is called idiopathic fibrosis.

The lungs are responsible for transferring oxygen throughout the body, and the malfunctioning of lungs may cause many issues with the normal functioning of the processes. A common ailment that affects the lungs is pulmonary fibrosis, also known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis or scarring of the lungs.

What is Pulmonary Fibrosis?
Pulmonary fibrosis is the scarring of the tissues inside the lungs of a patient. This scarring results in the development of excess tissue, which causes the walls of the lungs to thicken, giving rise to breathing difficulties.

Some of the symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis are-
- Shortness of breath
- Pain in joint and muscles
- Continuous dry coughing
- Inability to exert or take even the slightest bit of physical strain
- Lack of appetite which results in unintentional weight loss
- The rounding of finger and toe tips, which is known as clubbing
Pulmonary fibrosis has various stages and thus, it is important to detect it early or else it can put stresses on other vital organs.

Some of the causes for it are mentioned below:

  • Smoking - Cigarettes, cigars, and beedi are a leading cause of pulmonary fibrosis as they directly affect the lungs by depositing harmful chemicals and thus, cause scarring.
  • Environmental or occupational hazards - People working in a heavy glass or dust particulate environment such as in heavy industrial factories are also susceptible as they breathe in the particles, which may cause scarring.
  • Medicinal triggers - Certain medications can be a trigger due to hormonal or other physical changes and as a side effect may cause scarring of the lungs.
  • Genetic factors - Certain people are genetically predisposed to this condition if multiple members within the family have it as well.
  • Acid reflux diseases - Certain acid reflux problems may also cause scarring when drops of stomach acids enter the lung through the esophageal tract.

You can give all types of food. Also expected weight is around 12-13 kg so don, t panic. Maintain variety in the babies food. Home based food is advisable. Along with cereals and milk incorporate fruits and vegetables.

Few days back there was heavy pain on my right hand near by wrist. It continued for few days randomly. Later that I have a doubt on me that whether I have sugar. If I have sugar, how can I confirm it my self. I went to a lab to have blood check up. I was tested my blood, before breakfast and after the breakfast. The result is 93-96. And still I have a doubt whether I have sugar or not. please suggest me what to do?

General Physician, Delhi
Dear , although you lab results appear normal but you can still get an hba1c test done to confirm your doubts. This test shows you the approximate sugar over the past 2-3 months and if that is normal then you are not diabetic currently.

My right toe is swollen and purplish. It is due to ingrown nail. My age is 16. Give remedies which can be followed at home.

General Physician, Nashik
You can treat most ingrown toenails at home. Here's how: Soak your feet in warm water. Do this for 15 to 20 minutes three to four times a day. Soaking reduces swelling and relieves tenderness. Place cotton or dental floss under your toenail. After each soaking, put fresh bits of cotton or waxed dental floss under the ingrown edge. This will help the nail grow above the skin edge. Apply antibiotic cream. Put antibiotic ointment on the tender area and bandage the toe. Choose sensible footwear. Consider wearing open-toed shoes or sandals until your toe feels better. Take pain relievers. Over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve) may help ease the toe pain.

Dear lybrate user. The ejaculation and pimples are unrelated. Do not try to relate them. Feeling sexually aroused while talking to a pretty girl, is quit normal and there is nothing to worry about it. Unnecessary worrying about natural things creates anxiety disorder. Take care.
