Good day to you For the past few years, there is something that is really concerning me. Im 22 years old, my knuckles crack alot. It happens itself. It started when I was around 14 years old. When I make my hands stiff and curl my fingers to make a fist, all my knuckles crack. I do not have any swelling or problems due to it, but it still really bothers me. What is this and why is it happening? Can it be due to malnutrition? How do I cure it?
HiMere face par bahut sare brown spots hogaye hai maine kai sare Dr. ko dikhaya bhi but koi result nahi aaraha hai mai kya karu please suggested me.
Hello Doctor, I have a Enlarged Prostate Problem. I take medicine which will be consult from my hospital doctor. I feel good and he said you have to take this medicine regularly for 2 months. He also said for lab test. After doing lab test, the results says that you have 0.50 ng/ml PSA level. And it is in range of 0-4.So it is good or bad reports? Please says immediately.
No sunscreen provides absolute protection from the harmful rays of the sun but using the right product in the right way will take you far in shielding yourself from their harshness.
Read on to find the real facts about sunscreen:
- Putting sunscreen on your skin once is enough to protect you throughout the day: Most people apply sunscreen only once before heading out of the house, and don't reapply it again throughout the entire day. Contrary to popular belief, this does not provide protection for the entire day as most sunscreens lose their effect with time. To ensure that your skin remains protected you need to reapply sunscreen once every 2 hours, and once every 40-80 minutes if you are engaging in activities like swimming and exercising.
- You do not need to apply sunscreen in winters or you are when indoors: Winter skin is relatively more sensitive than summer skin which is tanned. If one is in hilly areas or snow covered regions there is reflection of UV light from the snow that causes more skin damage. Also glass can allow UV rays to pass through and indoor lighting can also be a source of UV exposure, therefore you should apply sunscreen even when you are indoors.
- Waterproof sunscreens won't wash off: Even if your sunscreen is waterproof, you need to reapply it at regular intervals if you are pursuing water sports like swimming or are the kind who washes their face frequently. When a sunscreen is typified as waterproof, it actually means that the composition of the sunscreen makes it suitable for functioning for a maximum of 1 hour and 20 minutes under water. Moreover, sunscreens containing a 'water-resistant' label can bear water immersion up to at most 40 minutes.
So, irrespective of whatever the label of the sunscreen mentions, you need to reapply sunscreen every hour to protect your skin effectively.
