Hello lybrate-user, chicken pox is self limiting disease. It has course of 7-10 days. Mostly there is no need of any treatment for it. If you have more pain, you can take symptomatic medicine for pain when needed. Otherwise it vanishes by its own. Keep patience, you will get free from this very soon. Have a healthy life.

You may be having gastritis. When a person feels hungry, hcl acid is produced in the stomach to help digestion. If the food is not taken at that time, the acid damages the mucosal layer of the stomach and causes lot of discomfort in the body. Therefore one should eat at regular intervals. Do not consume spicy food. Eat in small quantities frequently (every 2hrs once) and take some antacid 15mins before eating which helps to neutralise the acid produced in the stomach.

Hi, please follow these tips to stop snoring: - reduce your weight if you are obese. - perform pranayama (breathing exercises) everyday. - quit smoking which irritates the mucosal layer of the nose and throat and causes blockage and results in snoring. - quit alcohol and sedatives which relax the throat muscles and results in snoring. - sleep on sides instead on back. - elevate the head by using a thick pillow which eases the breathing. - clear the nose before going to bed. - establish regular sleep pattern. - keep the bedroom air moist by using humidifier; as dry air irritates the mucosal membrane in thenose and throat. - perform throat exercises like repeating the vowels a, e, i, o, you loudly for 2-3 mins few times a day or keeping the tongue behind the teeth and moving it backwards - 3-4 times a day. - anti snoring appliances can also be used. Apply rumalaya liniment on the chest and the back 3 times a day and give hot water fomentation.

It is due to infection of throat and ear. Ear has a opening in throat so any infection in throat or mouth may radiate to ear. It may occur due to ulcer, pharyngitis, tooth infection, tonsilitis etc. Gargle with luke warm water or with betadine gargle. Consult ent to rule out the cause.

How to control night fall problem. i am suffering from this problem from a very long time . i am unmarried. please help
This fluid coming out is semen. Semen, also known as seminal fluid, is an organic fluid that contains sperms. It is secreted by the sexual glands. Semen coming out at night is also called night fall or nocturnal emission or wet dreams. Do not be tensed about this issue. It is normal at your age. It is not an illness but a natural phenomenon by which old sperms come out and make space for new sperms. New sperms are produced continuously in our body by pushing away the older ones. It does not cause any physical harm or weakness.

How can avoid pregnancy after one of unprotected sex. It is done on 9 day of cycle and not take any thing after a week.
If you had sex on 9 th day of menses, (counting the start of period as day one)- and you have periods once in 28-30 days -the possibility of pregnancy is almost nil-. No need to worry. If somebody still has any doubt they can use hormone tablets from 16 th day of menses to get a period.

We can treat this problems but we need extra information about the patient. I will send a case taking form which you have to fill up that and I will tell the medicine's name" erythromelalgia, formerly known as mitchell's disease, acromelalgia, red neuralgia, orerythermalgia, is a rare neurovascular peripheral pain disorder in which blood vessels, usually in the lower extremities or hands, are episodically blocked (frequently on and off daily), then become hyperemic and inflamed. There is severe burning pain (in the small fiber sensory nerves) and skin redness. The attacks are periodic and are commonly triggered by heat, pressure, mild activity, exertion, insomnia or stress. Erythromelalgia may occur either as a primary or secondary disorder (i. E. A disorder in and of itself or a symptom of another condition). Secondary erythromelalgia can result from small fiber peripheral neuropathy of any cause, polycythemia vera, essential thrombocytosis, hypercholesterolemia, mushroom or mercury poisoning, and some autoimmune disorders. Primary erythromelalgia is caused by mutation of the voltage-gated sodium channel?-subunit gene scn9a. In 2004 erythromelalgia became the first human disorder in which it has been possible to associate an ion channel mutation with chronic neuropathic pain; when its pathophysiology was initially published in the journal of medical genetics. Conversely, in december 2006 a university of cambridge team reported an scn9a mutation that resulted in a complete lack of pain sensation in a pakistani street performer and some of his family members. He felt no pain, walked on hot coals and stabbed himself to entertain crowds"

You may be having allergic bronchitis which may be viral do warm saline gargle regularly, have homemade freshly prepared lemon juices regularly which is very rich in vitamin c thereby increasing your body autoimmune system which prevents infections including viral infection.
