Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops.

What are the symptoms of dengue fever? How can it be reduced? What should I do to become safe from dengue?
The principal symptoms of dengue are: -high fever and at least two of the following: -severe headache -severe eye pain (behind eyes) -joint pain -muscle and/or bone pain -rash -mild bleeding manifestation (nose or gum bleed, petechiae, or easy bruising) Watch for warning signs as temperature declines 3 to 5 days after symptoms/fever began, as this is the most dangerous period when platelet counts decline significantly. Report immediately to hospital if any of the following warning signs appear: -severe abdominal pain or persistent vomiting -red spots or patches on the skin -bleeding from nose or gums -vomiting blood -black, tarry stools  -drowsiness or irritability -pale, cold, or clammy skin -difficulty breathing There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection. -Use analgesics with acetaminophen (crocin or dolo -650 mg) and avoid those containing ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or aspirin containing drugs. -Take rest, drink plenty of fluids like coconut water, lime water etc.to prevent dehydration. -Avoid visiting heavily populated residential areas, if possible. -Use mosquito repellents/mosquito nets when indoors.  -When outdoors, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into socks.

Cold and cough, nasal block can initially be treated by anti allergic tablets, common cough syrup and nasal decongestant drops. Nose skin increase probably means a minor nasal defect called Deviated Nasal Septum for which you may have to see ENT specialist for proper direct examination, diagnosis and further management with medication or minor surgery.

Sir My Friend Done a Daily Masturbate! What is the Consequences? & What should he do?
Masturbation is a normal way of relieving sexual tension and is commonly practised by men. It is, not harmful if done in moderation, preferably once a week or once in a 2 week. Excess masturbation may cause physical problem like general weakness, tiredness, loss of memory, lack of energy, lack of concentration, loss of facial glow. It may reduce your sexual stamina. Take 1 pomegranate daily in the breakfast. Eat healthy food; avoid spicy, oily, fried foods, junk food. Take green vegetables and salads. Do meditation and deep breathing and be calm & relaxed. There are some herbal supplements that helps reducing masturbation urge. These supplements also fulfil body deficiency due excessive masturbation & make the person healthy.

I am 36yr male and I have piles last 2month what should I do?

MBBS

In the majority of cases, piles resolve on their own without the need for any treatment. Treatments can help significantly reduce the discomfort and itching that many patients experience Diet - piles can be caused by too much straining when doing bowel movements, which is the result of constipation. A change in diet can help keep the stools regular and soft. This involves eating more fiber, such as fruit and vegetables, or switching your cereal breakfast to bran. Water is the best drink, and the patient may be advised to increase his/her water consumption. Some experts say too much caffeine is not good. Body weight - if the patient is obese, losing weight may help reduce the incidence and severity of hemorrhoids. Simple things you can do yourself to help prevent piles: Try not to strain when you go to the toilet Avoid laxatives Exercis take tab pilex 1tab tds, anovate cream locally inside anus, siltz bath [hot water in a tub, add kmno4 in it, sit 1/2 an hr in tub, it will help.Avoid spicy , Oily food.Drink 3- 4 Litre of Water Daily. welcome for further help. or go for surgery

Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns, Sexual stamina can be developed, means to tolerate sexual stimulation and not getting climax. It can be achieved by learning your threshold. Hence in this regard we advice masturbation therapy which includes stimulating yourself by masturbation by applying some lubricant to penis and slowly stroking/ massaging penis till you reach near climax and then stop. In this way repeat 3 cycles. We make you learn where to stop, and you develop better stamina. If satisfied ok otherwise consult.
