Using a natural remedy for itching




If you need a remedy for itching, try the following natural cures:

Sufferers of chronic itchy skin should seek medical attention to rule out any underlying cause or disease. Typically, health care professionals will treat itchy skin with hydrocortisone cream or, in some cases, prednisone steroids. If you need help finding an effective herbal or organic remedy, a physician practicing holistic medicine may be a suitable match to treat your itching skin.

Coconut oil/lemon juice:

A mixture of equal parts coconut oil and lemon juice is believed to reduce inflammation and remedy itch. For ease of application, fill a spray bottle with the mixture and apply liberally as needed.

Oatmeal:

Oatmeal is one of the most popular natural remedies to relieve itching. Add two cups of uncooked oatmeal to warm bathwater and soak for 15-20 minutes.

Menthol:

Any topical rub containing menthol, such as vick's topical
Vaporub will immediately help an itch subside.

Aloe vera gel:

A natural cure-all, aloe vera gel can be applied liberally as needed to itchy skin, it will naturally soften and cool the tender skin.

Baking soda:

Baking soda is a useful and effective home remedy for itching. To make a baking soda paste, mix together baking soda and water to desired consistency, and rub on affected areas as needed to treat an itch.

6 Things You Need to Know About Sex During and After Pregnancy

6 Things You Need to Know About Sex During and After Pregnancy

Pregnancy, especially the first one, is a very anxious phase in a couple's life. There is the knowledge of leaving your previous life and transition to a new one filled with excitement (and copious amount of poop). Every pregnancy is different. Some women are completely turned off by the thought of having sex while others suddenly have their interests spiked. Here are six things you need to know about sex during and after pregnancy

1. You won't hurt the baby: As creative as you get thinking of different positions, it is unlikely that sex will harm your unborn child. Although it is a good sign that your maternal instincts are kicking in, this is a simple open and shut case. While you and your partner get on the act, your baby will rest safely in the amniotic sack well protected with layers of cushion in the form of flesh and fluids. The mucous plug in your cervix that puts a cork on the amniotic fluid ensures things remain stable.
2. You won't bump the baby on the head: As much as your partner would like to believe that his penis is long enough bump into the baby during sex, this is not a possibility. No penis is that big or close to being big enough to get close to the baby. Even if your baby is head down resting in your pelvis, it is unlikely he or she will take a hit during sex.
3. Your baby won't watch your act: You have to have sex to make babies. That is one of the most natural and beautiful realities of our lives. It is true that your baby activity may spike a little when your uterus contracts after an orgasm, so that way the baby will know something exciting happened. But it is not possible for the baby to 'know' or 'remember' what happens on the outside.
4. Sex won't result into an STD transmission to your baby: For one, it is best to stick to your partner who you know is free from STD with or without the baby bump. You'll also feel better knowing that once the baby is inside, your cervix is shut and out of access for anything from semen to other organisms as the mucus plug acts as a super tight cork. But when it comes to STD, it is better you go the safe way for yourself and only proceed if you know your partner is clean for sure.
5. You'll have some extra fun with new manoeuvers: With a baby bump in between, the usual missionary position becomes uncomfortable for many women. Try new and fun ways to keep your partner happy
6. Sex will feel better or worse: Sex will make you feel better or worse depending on how comfortable you are. It is always great to get that loving feeling with your partner, but if you don't want to go all the way, you can start with a hug and end with a kiss too.
In case you have some questions or concerns you must discuss with your doctor.

Please note the following in respect to your queries: The linea nigra can appear due to the melanin increasing from an increase in hormones. This is most common in pregnancy due to the high levels of estrogen, but being on birth control that contains estrogen can also cause the melanin to increase. Melanin may also increase in cases of adrenal insufficiency or failure, known as Addison’s disease. This can cause a linea nigra and darkening of skin in other areas. This condition needs to be tested, diagnosed and treated right away to avoid complications.

See the hormone medication while preventing pregnancy. Disturb the hormones. Periods can be heavy. Feelings can be different.

I am suffering from breast pain, as I consulted to our neighbouring doctors they said that, it is an hormonal variation & hence the pain occurs. But the pain is not stopped, what should I do further now?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

As you are only 16 years old, there is no chance that you r suffering from any major disease. It is common among your age group and is caused by hormonal changes. It will go after some time. In the mean time you should take pain killers. You will not need to show it to anyone for the same.

Hi, me and my girlfriend did unprotected sex on 6th February at afternoon 12.30 like that. She is a virgin. We tried for Intercourse for three times not even more than 15 seconds because as she is virgin she is getting huge pain when I inserted my part into her vagina. Moreover as its hurting her I not even inserted my male organ completely into her vagina, only half of it and not more than that, and also its not even more than 15 seconds each time and I removed my organ from her vagina as she says it hurts a lot. I not even rubbed to and fro in her vagina and also I already mentioned I inserted only half of my organ into her vagina in all the three times. And as it only 15 seconds and I not even rubbed to and fro there no chance of ejaculation inside her vagina. And to mention I didn't ejaculate or cum inside her. Moreover it is no possible in 15 seconds span of time, in all the three times the same repeated. After the third time I haven't tried again as she is experiencing a lot of pain. Nothing happened after that. At that time I don't know exactly whether my precum existed or not because I thought that it will not cause any pregnancy. But while going through on the next day (i.e.7th February) I found that precum may also contain a small amount of sperm which also cause pregnancy if they are alive. I don't no if there existed precum during Intercourse. Moreover I washed all my bud and shaft with soap when I was bathing before Intercourse. But I'm not sure the precum existed or not during Intercourse or even if it existed I don't know if it contained a small amount of sperm content. Thats why after reading the article in Google the next day (i.e.on 7th February) I was so scared that she may become pregnant. So I said her to take an ipill in less than 24 hrs (i.e before 12 pm of 7th February). She took the pill between 11.30 to 12.15 on 7th February afternoon i.e.exactly after 22-23 hrs after our Intercourse (i remind you again that I didn't ejaculate or cum inside her vagina and what I did I explained clearly at the top of my query. And also ro mention you one thing that she do not have a regular periodic cycle of periods. It varies each time. Her last date was 26th January and it was a 22 day day period. Now I'm also afraid that when her ovulation took place and is it the date of our Intercourse (i.e 6th February) eventhought I didn't cum inside her I'm afraid of precum if it contains any sperm that she may be pregnant. She took an ipill in less than 24 hrs. 1) Will it work or she can be pregnant if it was exactly her ovulation date even she took an emergency contraceptive pill? 2) she may be become pregnant even with my precum without ejaculation inside her?  3) what will be her ovulation date if her date was 26th January and it is a 22 day period, will it be 6th February or even the day after or day before 6th February?  4) will the pill work for all those cases?  (note: she is experiencing a vaginal dryness from 6th February till today, is it any symptom for anything or its just the pills side effect?)  Whatever may be the case please tell whether she is going to been pregnant or not?  Please help me sir by replying fast, because I'm sooo scared?

Yes she can get pregnant, as sperm stays alive for a week inside a female genital tract, still would advise now to wait for the due date and if she misses her period, do a Urine pregnancy test to confirm pregnancy.

U should get ultrasound done immediately and then followed by d&c to find out the exact cause. And then treatment can be done. As there is obesity, you may be suffering from endometrial hyperplasia.

Hi lybrate-user As it is clearly known from the usg report that there is no chance of pregnancy but the delay is due to the hormonal imbalance caused due to the cysts formed. There is no age for cysts to be formed. You should start working out regularly and start homoeopathic treatment for your cysts and hormonal imbalance. NO need to worry. For furthur queries contact privately. Takecare.
