Scabies is an itchy skin condition caused by the microscopic mite Sarcoptes scabei. It is common all over the world, and can affect anyone. Scabies spreads quickly in crowded conditions where there is frequent skin-to-skin contact between people. Hospitals, child-care centers, and nursing homes are examples. Scabies can easily infect sex partners and other household members. Sharing clothes, towels, and bedding can sometimes spread scabies. This can happen much more easily when the infested person has crusted scabies. You cannot get scabies from a pet. Pets get a different mite infection called mange. Symptoms are Pimple-like irritations or a rash Intense itching, especially at night Sores caused by scratching The infected person's clothes, bedding and towels should be washed in hot water and dried in a hot dryer. Bath with hot water and hand wash with hot water.Treatment is also recommended for household members and sexual partners.Several lotions are available to treat scabies. Medicines that may be prescribed include: 5% permethrin cream: This is the most common treatment for scabies. It is safe for children as young as 1 month old and women who are pregnant.  25% benzyl benzoate lotion. 10% sulfur ointment.  10% crotamiton cream. 1% lindane lotion.

Dear brachial plexus injury that happened three years ago is not easy to treat. After reading what information you have given the first thing that comes to my mind is to do active and passive physiotherapy. At this stage get a nerve conduction study done, that will give information about the viability of nerves. Once that is know a further treatment plan can be charted. Regards

What are the symptoms of dengue and precautions required to take in this changing atmosphere from summer to winter?
The principal symptoms of dengue are: High fever and at least two of the following: Severe headache/Severe eye pain (behind eyes) Joint pain/Muscle and/or bone pain Rash or Mild bleeding manifestation (e. G, nose or gum bleed, petechiae, or easy bruising) Watch for warning signs as temperature declines 3 to 5 days after symptoms/fever began, as this is the most dangerous period when platelet counts decline significantly. Report immediately to hospital if any of the following warning signs appear: Severe abdominal pain or persistent vomiting Red spots or patches on the skin Bleeding from nose or gums Vomiting blood Black, tarry stools (feces, excrement) Drowsiness or irritability Pale, cold, or clammy skin Difficulty breathing There is no specific medication for treatment of a dengue infection. Persons who think they have dengue should use analgesics (pain relievers) with acetaminophen (crocin or dolo -650 mg) and avoid those containing ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or aspirin containing drugs. Take rest, drink plenty of fluids like coconut water, lime water etc. To prevent dehydration. Preventing dengue fever: the best way to prevent the disease is to prevent bites by infected mosquitoes.Avoid visiting heavily populated residential areas, if possible. Use mosquito repellents, even indoors.

Quality matters not quantity. Do not look sex frequency as numbers. Enjoy it. Sex can not not be planned after marriage. It will happen when you both wants. So do not force yourself to meet numbers.

I am happy that you have the courage to ask this question. Many a young men and women have such queries. To get back to your query, you are 19 years of age and your body is still going through the adolescence, teenage years and development. It is quite natural for a young guy who's sexuality is being moulded to get attracted to men and women. Such attraction can exist between two men out of emotional friendship need for a sexual outlet situation where only males are in close proximity just sucking someone's penis does not make one person gay. One person calls himself gay when he is sexually attracted to men to the" exclusion" of women. Recent research on sexuality has shown that sexuality is not black and white. I. E. Heterosexual and homosexual, but based on the liking, feelings, identification of self and experiences one can have sexual attraction or have sexual play with members of same sex. Thus sexuality is fluid. Even if you indulge in penis sucking with your partner, it doesnot make you gay. But you have to be strong about it. There are chances where the person who is making you suck his penis, photographs you or makes a video out of your act, and then forces you to do it again and again. This is wrong, and exploitative. But, having said that, why do you want to have a personal sexual experience at this age? is it that your friends who are having some sexual experience is" pushing" you to have it, just to be at par with them? is it that you are feeling that you have found a partner, with whom you are so attached that you want to be physical with him? is your partner forcing you to have oral sex with him? such men who force others to do sex, are often quite promiscuous themselves and so may carry infections from one partner to another. So beware of such persons if not, then its best to wait for a few years. Meanwhile, you can use your sexual fantasies and thoughts and masturbate on it. This is safer than having oral sex at such a age. There are instances when children have indulged in such experimentation and then have become confused about their feelings and experiences without any emotional context. Also some youth get so carried away by their experiences that they indulge in it compulsively, and even solicit anyone to have oral sex with them so be safe and choose wisely.
