Homoeopathic treatment is the only permanent solution. If you didn't find results in Batra it doesn't mean it is not effective. Consult another homoeopathic doctor.

Infections - Most Common Types of Them!

Infections - Most Common Types of Them!

The skin is the largest organ of the body and is hence susceptible to a great number of infections. Here are a few skin infections arranged according to the causative organism:
Bacterial Infections 

  1. LeprosyMycobacterium leprae is the bacterium which spreads slowly and causes leprosy. It is also called Hansen’s disease.
  2. CarbunclesIt is a swollen, painful and red boil aggregation which is joined underneath the skin.
  3. CellulitisIt is a common skin infliction that spreads underneath the skin to the adjoining soft tissues. It happens due to the bacteria entering the skin through a cut or a wound.
  4. Boils: An infected oil gland or hair follicle may lead to a boil. The area affected turns red and soon, a lump forms at the same site.
  5. ImpetigoIt is extremely contagious and can occur on any body part. Exposed areas of the skin are more prone to this bacterial infection.

Fungal Infections 

  1. Ringworm: Ringworm is a misnomer as it is caused by dermatophytes which are fungi. It’s also called tinea.
  2. CandidiasisCertain types of yeast cause candidiasis. The causative yeast is present on everybody’s body surface.
  3. SporotrichosisThis fungal infection is common among gardeners and farmers as the mould which causes sporotrichosis can be found on soil, hay and plants.
  4. Nail fungal infections: When fungus spreads to the nails it might lead to fungal nail infections.
  5. Athlete’s Foot: It’s a very common infection that can develop in non-athletes as well. This fungal infection can happen to men, women, girls and boys of every age group.

Viral Infections

  1. ShinglesHerpes zoster or shingles is caused by reactivation of the chicken pox virus.
  2. ChickenpoxRed, itchy rash caused by the varicella virus is an infectious disease that affects a great majority of children. Chickenpox usually happens once in a lifetime as the body has antibodies to protect itself from a repeat infection.
  3. Molluscum Contagiosum: It is a viral infection that leads to multiple or singular raised bumps on the skin. These bumps are called papules and resemble pearls. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

What Is The Purpose Of Colposcopy and How Is The Procedure Done?

What Is The Purpose Of Colposcopy and How Is The Procedure Done?

The physical constitution of a woman’s body is complex and must be subject to regular medical check-ups. The reproductive system in women is especially sensitive to many factors. Colposcopy is a surgical procedure that entails an examination of the vulva, vagina, and cervix by using a tool known as the colposcope. This process is performed if unusual results are detected in Pap smear test.

The Pap smear is a medical screening test that helps identify abnormal cervical cells. The doctor uses the bright light that emanates from the colposcope to see the cervix more clearly under optical magnification. In case irregular areas are spotted during the Pap smear test, a tissue sample is retrieved from the cervix and then sent for biopsy.

What is the purpose of colposcopy?
Colposcopy is performed if a woman starts bleeding profusely right after engaging in sexual intercourse. The medical procedure enables doctors to identify abnormal growth in the reproductive system of a woman; such growth may be visible in the vulva, vagina, or in the woman’s cervix.

Cervical cancer can be identified with the help of a surgical procedure like colposcopy. The procedure can be used to locate ailments in the uterine cervix. These abnormalities may include genital warts or excessive inflammation of the cervix. The latter is known as cervicitis.

How is Colposcopy Performed?
The first step of the colposcopy procedure requires the patient to lie down with the feet placed in stirrups, similar to how a patient would have to lie down when undergoing any Pap smear test or a pelvic exam. A speculum is placed on the patient’s vagina, and the colposcope shall be positioned some inches away from the vulva. The insertion of the speculum can generate some discomfort, but the pain does not last long.

The vagina and the cervix are swabbed with vinegar and cotton to clear any mucus and to highlight any abnormal cells. The colposcope does not physically touch the person. The doctor may proceed to take photographs of areas that might appear suspicious to him. He may also extract a tissue sample from the cervix and send this to a laboratory for biopsy.

The doctor applies a solution to the patient after the biopsy has been executed. This action helps to control the bleeding that may occur after the colposcopy. The solution is known as Monsel’s Solution, and it generates a dark discharge following the procedure. The discharge may occur for a few days.

Colposcopy is an effective procedure that identifies abnormal growth in cervical cells. While there are no risks associated with this procedure as such, it is common for patients to experience bleeding and even fever for a few days after the surgery.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Acupuncture Treatment!

Acupuncture Treatment!

The researchers (xiao et al.) note that the acupuncture treatment group outperformed the drug control group. Acupuncture was more successful in fever reduction. The researchers conclude that “acupuncture at dazhui has a definite therapeutic effect on high fever due to the common cold.” 

The researchers tested the efficacy of dazhui on traditional chinese medicine (tcm) differential diagnostic subgroups. To that end, they determined that “needling dazhui shows a better therapeutic effect in patients with the wind-heat type common cold compared with patients who had the wind-cold type common cold.” the acupuncture treatment group had 52 wind-cold type patients and 81 wind-heat type patients. The control group had 52 wind-cold type patients and 76 wind-heat type patients.

The research team provided a basic description of each diagnostic pattern in the subgroups. The wind-cold group had a severe aversion to cold with mild fever, absence of sweating, headaches, aching pain in the joints, nasal congestion with a heavy voice, clear phlegm, and a floating or tight pulse. Secondary symptoms for the wind-cold type included an itchy pharynx, coughing, thin and white sputum, no thirst or thirst with a liking for hot drinks, and a thin, white, moist tongue coating.

Dazhui performed well for the wind-cold subgroup; however, even greater results were achieved in the wind-heat subgroup. The primary symptoms for the wind-heat type subgroup include a dmild aversion to cold with a high fever, sweating, dry pharynx, sore and red throat, nasal congestion, yellow and turbid phlegm, and a floating and rapid pulse. The secondary symptoms included headaches, coughing, sticky and yellow sputum, thirst with desire to drink, and a tongue with a thin, slightly yellow coating with redness at the tip and margins of the tongue body.

Procedures

Patients in the drug control group received a 2 ml antondine injection. Patients in the acupuncture treatment group received a 20 minute session of electroacupuncture. Dazhui (gv14) was applied using a hand-held probe as the ground for electroacupuncture. A 0.30 mm × 40 mm disposable acupuncture needle was inserted into the acupoint to a standard depth. After the arrival of deqi, the acupuncture needle was retained for twenty minutes per acupuncture session. During needle retention, electroacupuncture stimulation was added to the acupoint using a dense-disperse wave (2/100 hz). Intensity was within a range of 8–20 ma and was set to patient tolerance levels or until muscle contractions were observable.

Evaluations

Subjective and objective instruments quantified patient outcomes. First, the body temperature was recorded at several data points: prior to electroacupuncture and 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, and 24 hours after completion of the acupuncture treatment. The researchers note, “after treatment, the body temperature at all observation time points in the [acupuncture] treatment group were lower than those in the [drug] control group.”

The onset of action time refers to the duration of time it takes for a drug or acupuncture to decrease the body temperature by 0.5 degrees celsius from the start of treatment. Acupuncture demonstrated significant results. The onset of action time averaged 1.42 hours in the acupuncture treatment group and 3.44 hours in the drug control group.

Acupuncture significantly reduced fevers and restored the body to a normal temperature (37 degrees celsius) in 75.9% of cases, which was significantly more effective than the drug used for the control group. Notably, the wind-heat group had slightly better results with acupuncture than the wind-cold group. This is consistent with traditional functions of the acupoint utilized in the investigation.

Design

Researchers used the following study design. A total of 261 patients were randomly divided into an acupuncture treatment group and a drug control group. For the control group patients, intramuscular injection of antondine was administered. The treatment group received acupuncture with electrical stimulation to the acupoint. Inclusion criteria were established and included the following:

Meets biomedical medicine diagnostic criteria for the common cold
Meets tcm diagnostic criteria for the common cold
Axillary temperature ≥ 39.0 degrees celsius
Age between 15–65 years
Signed informed consent forms
Patients who had the following conditions were excluded:

Receiving treatment affecting the study's measurement indicators
Mental disorders
Pregnant or lactating
Atypical pneumonia and other infectious diseases

The results indicate that the electroacupuncture application of dazhui (gv14) is safe and effective for the alleviation of high fevers. The researchers note that this “method of acupuncture at dazhui (gv14) has a define therapeutic effect on high fever of common cold, and [especially] for wind-heat type common cold.” to learn more, consult with a licensed acupuncturist. Dr. Swarup kumar ghosh. Homoeophysican, & exp acupuncture 04 years, acupessure, & yoga, allopathy. Or ayurvedic 3 years same knowlege.  Acupuncture reduces fevers for patients with the common cold. 
The research quantified the antipyretic actions of acupoint dazhui (gv14). The onset of initial effective action and full relief to normal body temperature times were measured. The results were compared with a control group receiving a medication with antipyretic actions.

Dazhui (gv14) outperformed the antipyretic drug for relieving fevers in patients with the common cold. The drug control group received antondine. The treatment group received electroacupuncture at dazhui (gv14). The researchers note" one electrode was attached to the needle handle, and the other was hand-held by patients as a reference electrode"
