Hello lybrate user. Coughing is a natural body reflex It keeps the lungs, throat and airway clear of foreign material But constant coughing causes discomfort and caused by infection like common cold. Rx Steam inhalation with halin drops or mint leaves. Dashamoola katutrayadi kwatha 10ml diluting with warm water twice a day before food. Sudarshan vati 2 twice a day after food. Avoid cold heavy fermented oily food stuffs. Avoid exposure to direct wind and sunlight.

Penis size is 3" only while erection and in normal condition it look like a child penis.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Penis size is 3" only while erection and in normal condition it look like a child penis.
The average size of the erect/aroused penis ranges from 3.2 inches to 6.5 inches, but even lower sizes don't make a difference to the ability to have sex, please one's partner or have children. The aroused female vagina only extends between 3 to 4 inches, and even here, the most sensitive parts are towards the outside. Girth is a little more important, but most important is how you use it. So please focus on the person you are with and make sure your partner enjoys the experience - there is really nothing more important than that in sex. Anyone who tells you that size is important doesn't really know what he is talking about. The only way to increase penis size or girth (thickness) is through surgery, but this is painful and risky. None of the medicines marketed to increase penis size work and they are a waste of money.

Role of Diet in Acne

MD - Skin,VD & Lepxsy, MBBS
Dermatologist, Rewari
Role of Diet in Acne

Acne is a common skin disease, which happens when the hair follicles becomes full with dead skin cells and oil secreted from the skin. Acne is mainly characterized by vast areas of blackheads and pimples. The appearance of a person suffering from acne has often led to anxiety, and in extreme cases has caused depression as well.

Causes of Acne: 

  1. Genetics is thought to be one of the main reasons for hair fall due to acne. This is supported both by twin studies and studies that have shown higher rates of acne among first degree relatives. Acne susceptibility is polygenic as the disease does not follow the Mendelian inheritance pattern.
  2. Another reason for acne is related to hormonal activities, such as those during menstrual cycle and puberty. During puberty, sex hormones called androgens increase, which causes the follicular glands to grow larger than normal. Many hormones like testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate and growth hormone have been shown to have links with acne.
  3. Many bacteria like the anaerobic bacterium are suspected to be a reason behind acne. Infection caused by the parasite Demodex is also responsible for causing acne.

Role of Diet in Acne:
Different studies have been done to establish a relationship between diet and acne, but there is no evidence to prove so. Some tests have shown different degrees of acne intensity due to high glycemic diets. Another unproved study shows consuming dairy milk is linked to higher incidences and intensity of acne. One recent experiment has shown a relationship between acne and obesity, however, no relationship is found between acne and insulin metabolism. Vitamin B12 may cause skin problems similar to acne.

Cigarette smoking and acne has been a ground for high debate among biologists. Some medical records have shown that cigarette smoking increases the severity of acne. Some studies have also shown that stress or other psychological causes worsens acne. Acne severity is linked to high stress levels.

Symptoms:

  1. Scars are a common symptom of acne. Acne scars are caused due to inflammation in the skin dermal layer. The scar is made by an abnormal form of healing after the inflammation. These scars are classified on the basis of whether excess collagen or collagen loss is caused by the abnormal inflammation.
  2. Nodular acne lesions cause pigmentations. This often leaves a red, inflamed mark even after the lesion has been cured.

Treatment:

  1. A diet low on glycemic index is recommended for treating acne.
  2. Benzoyl peroxide is the first step in treating mild to moderate acne. This is because of its high effectiveness and mild side effects. The peroxide causes drying of the skin as a side effect.
  3. Antibiotics are very much used for treating acne. Oral antibiotics are highly recommended. This is because of their anti-inflammatory properties.
  4. Azelaic acid when applied at 20% concentration is effective for treating mild to moderate acne.
  5. Natural treatment methods include applying tea tree oil or bee venom to reduce the amount of lesions in acne.

What is Masturbation?

Masturbation is the self-stimulation of the genitals to achieve sexual arousal and pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm (sexual climax). It is commonly done by touching, stroking, or massaging the penis until an orgasm is achieved

Is Masturbation Normal?

While it once was regarded as a perversion and a sign of a mental problem, Masturbation now is regarded as a normal, healthy sexual activity that is pleasant, fulfilling, acceptable and safe. It is a good way to experience sexual pleasure and can be done throughout life.

Masturbation is only considered a problem when it inhibits sexual activity with a partner, is done in public, or causes significant distress to the person. It may cause distress if it is done compulsively and/or interferes with daily life and activities.

In addition to feeling good, Masturbation is a good way of relieving the sexual tension that can build up over time, especially for people without partners or whose partners are not willing or available for sex.

Is Masturbation Harmful?

Masturbation has been part of the daily life for some people. Although Masturbating itself is not a bad thing to do, but the addiction gives lots of bad impact to one’s life. When someone Masturbate more than once a day or more than three times in a week or he doing that daily, then it could be classified that person is addicted to Masturbation. You will feel more satisfied with your self-service sexual needs than with your spouse. Moreover, the mental bound between you and your mate will be no longer tight and everything could fall down like the domino effect afterwards.

Side Effect of Excessive Masturbation

The main problems are of mental imbalances. Men who Masturbate too frequently will develop an addiction-like attraction for the habit. They will not be able to spend a single day without Masturbation, and will probably want to have a go at it whenever they can afford. The result is that, the person is not able to focus on work, which naturally suffers. Over Masturbation can also make a person sluggish in society, a slow learner and a person who is so wrapped up in his addiction for Masturbation that he does not show any kind of progress.

A very shocking side-effect is that people who Masturbate a lot develop such a strong affinity to the habit that they do not get the same kind of arousal through normal heterosexual intercourse. This, if anything, will affect the reproductive capability of a person.

Excessive Masturbation causes weak Erection and leads to Premature Ejaculation.

Excessive Masturbation also causes Seman Leakage and then it leads to overall weakness of a person and if the problem is not treated then it leads to Impotence.

Besides weakness it also causes other health problems like stress,fatique,memory loss,headache,blurred vision,hair loss, liver dysfunction etc

Am I Addicted?

The defining characteristic of any addiction is that it interferes with one major area in your life and that you are unable to stop despite strong efforts to do so. Some common symptoms that you may be addicted to masturbation include:

Seeking out increasingly graphic, extreme or violent pornography
Feeling ashamed of your masturbation habits
Having trouble in a relationship because of masturbation
Having trouble with sexual arousal or in-person sexual interactions because masturbation is easier or more pleasurable
Masturbating in inappropriate locations such as at work, in the car or in public
Legal trouble because of masturbation or other sexual behaviors
Difficulty with time management
Feelings of frustration, anger, sadness or depression when you can’t masturbate
Trouble spending time with your children, enjoying your hobbies in other tasks you previously enjoyed
If you think you might be addicted to masturbation, don’t despair. Hope is available, so contact us.

I am a singer by profession from mumbai. I'm suffering from vocal nodules from last 6 months. I have a big size polyp in my right vocal chord. Its been 4 months m taking regular treatment. Homeopathy medicine plus vocal therapy from a renowned doctor in mumbai. But still only 20 to 30% recovery is there. I'm really tensed as my whole career depends on my voice. please suggest what should I do to get recover soon.

Vocal cord nodules are benign (noncancerous) growths on both vocal cords that are caused by vocal abuse. Over time, repeated abuse of the vocal cords results in soft, swollen spots on each vocal cord. These spots develop into harder, callous-like growths called nodules. The nodules will become larger and stiffer the longer the vocal abuse continues. Vocal abuse takes many forms and includes: allergies smoking tense muscles singing coaching cheerleading talking loudly drinking caffeine and alcohol (dries out the throat and vocal cords) you have to consult an ent surgeon for proper therapy, do not play with your voice.

Dear Lybrate user. There is nothing wrong in sperm trickling along with urine. This is a natural phenomenon and there is nothing you can do about it. Leave this matter and don't worry about it. Take care.

The simplest method of removing minor surface stains is polishing, or micro-abrasion if staining is more intrinsic. Provided that your discolouration is not due to inadequate enamel exposing the dentin, tooth whitening (bleaching) is often the most effective treatment for yellow stained teeth. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results.
