Why You Should Swap Your Jeans And Vest For A Lungi?

Why You Should Swap Your Jeans And Vest For A Lungi?

The clothes we wear are often dictated by fashion and with our desire to conform with the latest cultural trends around the world. However, from a health perspective, the most important consideration of how you dress should be based primarily on local weather conditions. So it is perfectly ok to pull out your parkas, mittens, scarfs, stockings and jeans if you are located in a chilly and snowy location. In hot and humid India, it makes much more sense to wear light, breezy, thin clothes like dhotis, salwars, skirts, shorts or lungis. You can land up with painful and dangerous medical conditions with clothes unsuitable to your climate. Here's how your clothing could be harming you: 

  1. Increased heat rashes or miliaria. Your vest could be the culprit!: A very common skin condition seen in hot and humid weather conditions is called “miliaria” and is caused by blocked sweat ducts. Thick, tight clothes hamper normal evaporation of sweat into the atmosphere and cause this kind of irritable heat rash. Simple physics dictates that any extra or double layer of cloth, like a vest, would further hamper evaporation and aggravate these rashes. While vests may save your overlying shirt from getting damp, they are certainly bad news for your underlying skin which has to carry the unevaporated sweat on its surface. 
  2. Increased chances of fungal and bacterial infections. Ditch the Denim!: The hot and humid environment within slim-fitting, thick clothes creates ideal conditions for fungi and bacteria to proliferate. Itchy, red rashes like ringworm appear in the groins, underarms and other parts of the skin. Painful boils and itchy, pus-filled folliculitis are common and often require surgery. This kind of dangerous environment is easily created within the skin-hugging denims you see so many people wearing all around you. 
  3. Bacterial and fungal resistance to antimicrobials: Your dermatologist will treat your infections with appropriate antibiotics or antifungals. Unfortunately, in this era of global warming, many patients fail to respond and are tortured by recurrent, severe infections in spite of adequate dosing of medicines. One major reason is clothing and fashion which does not match the environment, creating ideal conditions for resistant, harmful bugs to multiply. You should choose lighter, airier, non-synthetic clothes that let your skin ‘breathe’ and does not allow sweat, dirt and deadly bugs to stick to your skin. 
  4. Increased chances of urinary and genital infections: Tight, synthetic undergarments are thought to increase chances of genital and urinary infections. Tight and ill-fitting underwear can also cause discomfort, soreness and chafing by repeated friction. 
  5. Body Odor: Body odor can be embarrassing and is aggravated by full-sleeved shirts, long undergarments, tight leggings, stockings and skinny jeans. 
  6. Allergic dermatitis: Many individuals develop allergic rashes with certain common items like jewellery, footwear, earrings, cloth dyes, wristwatches and metallic buttons. A combination of heat, sweat and dissolved allergens precipitates these rashes in predisposed individuals. 
  7. Environmental damage! Use minimum clothes: You definitely need to cover your skin, but are you cluttering your wardrobe with clothes that you keep on purchasing and hardly ever use? The apparel industry exploits huge amounts of natural resources like water, plant products, petroleum products, chemicals and electricity. You yourself require quite a bit of water, laundry detergents, and electricity just to maintain your clothes. Is it worth the environmental cost to purchase and maintain clothes that you will hardly ever use?

Hello you are just 32 and undergoing trauma of a breakup. It is common to seek that which is forbidden. You will need time to come to terms with the divorce and in time you may want to find another partner.

Hello dear lybrate-user, Warm welcome to I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* As per my knowledge from your last interaction, you have very good recovery from syphillis and you do not need further penicillin. Ceftriaxone is best option at this phase. Hope this clears your query. Wishing you fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards take care.

I'm 30 years old male. How to increase sex drive. I'm loosing interest in sex. I regularly take cold shower.

Mostly medicines used to treat this problem aim at increasing blood flow towards penis but there may be some potentially serious side effects of these medicines. The patient may experience nasal congestion, dizziness, sleeplessness, headache, backache, and hot and cold flashes. Those who are already diagnosed with high or low bp, diabetes, or uncontrolled hepatitis should not take medicines recommended for erectile dysfunction. Other methods to treat the condition include erection inducing injections and testosterone implants but there are many side effects associated with these methods of treating the disease. These injections may cause painful acne, swollen gums, pain in penis, or breast enlargement. Mainly injections are known as intracavernous drugs and suppositories are called intraurethral medicines. Drugs prescribed for this purpose are usually taken a few minutes before intercourse and one is not allowed to use the drug more than once per day although the dosage depends on the type of the drug, if you.

Acoustic Trauma, Preserve Your Hearing!

Acoustic Trauma, Preserve Your Hearing!
Acoustic Trauma, Preserve Your Hearing! Here is a riddle for you. What is Painless, Progressive, Permanent but Preventable? The answer is ..... Noise Induced Hearing Loss! When we are exposed to loud sounds, it takes a toll on our ears resulting in permanent, irreversible hearing loss. With technology enhanced devices and events the level of sound generated through earphones, personal listening devices (PLDs) is of growing concern as it unknowingly damages hearing. It is ironic: the very thing that drives us to get an iPod – music – could prevent our ability to enjoy it! It is important to remember: Noise Induced Hearing Loss is Preventable! The following tips may help save your hearing.

Ø Do not Listen So Loud – Use the “60-60 Rule:” Limit listening level to 60 % of the maximum volume for 60 minutes a day. Anything louder than that over an extended period is risky.

Ø Use Volume Control – Limit the volume to 80 percent of maximum and listen no longer than 90 minutes a day.

Ø Limit Your Listening – The length of time you listen, not just the volume, can contribute to hearing loss. Avoid prolonged, continuous listening.

Ø Limit Noisy Activities - At home, turn down the volume on the TV, radio, and stereo. Reduce the number of noisy appliances running at the same time.

Ø Protect your Ears - Wear earplugs or muffs when exposed to loud Noise. Avoid medications that can be dangerous (ototoxic) to your ears. Ask your physician about possible effects on your hearing.

I am 22 years old lady. I had 7 times sex with my fiance during my 3rd day of menstrual cycle. Out of which 2 are unprotected and 5 are protected. This is our first time that we had sex and lost our virginity. And we both are not having any disease. A week after this, I found irritation, itching near vagina specially around labia region and burning while urination. Thereafter drinking a lots of water that burning sensation at genital region during urination had gone. 10 days after sex I found my left labia minoris is stretched out, it has slightly increased in size as compared to right labia minoris and both labia majora are partially swollen at few patches but I feel sometimes itching though it has reduced as compared to earlier but it still sustains. Now I'm worried about it very much. Kindly tell me what are these symptoms mean to be?

Dear user. FERTILE PHASE is the phase of a female's menstrual cycle when an egg (ovule) is released from the ovaries. In humans, ovulation occurs about midway through the menstrual cycle, after the follicular phase. The few days surrounding ovulation (from approximately days 10 to 18 of a 28 day cycle), constitute the most fertile phase. So if you have ejaculatory sexual inter course from day 10 from the first day of period and to day 20, the chances of pregnancy are much more. There are many determinants of pregnancy. You should be sexually matured. Your partner should be sexually matured. The period of your partner should be in the fertile stage. Female egg and male sperm cells should be healthy enough. Then female uterus should be capable to get conceived. If all these are satisfied, the pregnancy could be a result. Take care.
