pain is complex, so there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medications. Being also a general physician, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary tips taking into account patient preferences.

My penis foreskin is not coming back. Will this harm me to have a sex or for baby.
No lybrate-user, but you may have phimosis this is caused by the infiltration of fluid into the cellular tissue of the prepuce, forming a large, long, dark, reddish-brown, bulbous swelling at the extremity of the penis, its borders being enlarged, cracked, and so narrow that but a small portion of the secreted pus can make its escape, and rendering the retraction of the prepuce behind the glans impossible, the remainder collecting underneath, forming a fluctuating swelling. Persons with a long and narrow prepuce are the most subject to it, and balanorrhoea is always present. Treatment. - if the remedies are selected with care, the disease is generally easily subdued, and it is only in very severe cases, and when gangrene threatens, that the knife becomes necessary. Should the apparently appropriate remedies be of no avail, slight incisions in the prepuce wil allow much of the fluid to escape, and pave the way to speedy relief. Homeopathy medicines mercurius corrosivus merc. Corros. Is indicated when there is violent swelling of the prepuce, like a bladder, with burning, biting redness, and painful sensibility, with cracks and fissures on the inner surface. Rhus toxicodendron rhus tox. Is required when there is puffy swelling of both prepuce and glans, which itching and moist eruption on the scrotum. Cannabis indica cannabis should be given when there is dark-red, hot, and inflamed prepuce, which is swollen in connection with the fraenum. Cinnabaris cinnabaris is useful when there is swelling, redness, and soreness of the prepuce, with itching pain.

Ideal sugar level during pregnancy should be maintained between 90 - 120 mg through out the day. Hence, 135 mg after food is high. Is she on any treatment? if not then she must start on minimal dosage of insulin (4 - 6 units a day) and bring the levels below 120 mg. In pregnancy high sugar is dangerous for the fetus as it may trigger macrosomia (large baby).

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

No absolutely not. The pain of kidney stones is a very typical pain which starts at the front and radiates to the back. But please remember that pain of kidney stones is also associated with some other important symptoms like difficulty in passing urine or burning sensation on passing urine.

All About Constipation in Children

Pediatrician, Jaipur
All About Constipation in Children

Constipation in children is a common pediatric health issue mostly arising due to early toilet training and having an inadequate diet. Most cases of this condition do not last for long and can be easily treated.

Constipation in children is mainly caused by the following factors:

  • Lack of fiber content in their diet caused due to an aversion to veggies, often result in constipation in children.
  • Withholding stool: Your child may be holding his bowel movements in because of stress with toilet training. This maybe because he/she doesn't want to defecate in the school bathroom or in other places. Often if it hurts to poop once, the child might withhold his bowel movements and this leads to a vicious cycle.
  • Side effects of certain medications.
  • In rare cases, children facing abuse may develop constipation.

Symptoms

You will know your child has constipation if the following occurs:

  • Your child spends a lot of time while defecating
  • Your child complains of difficulty with bowel movement
  • Bloating and stomach pain
  • Soiling accidents

Treatments

A combination of the following approaches helps in treating constipation in children:

  • See to it that your child eats all his vegetables and fruits. Include more fibrous vegetables and fruits in the diet. Include food containing probiotics like yoghurt.
  • Use a stool softener: While using a stool softener the most common mistake is to apply too much or too little amount of the concoction. Carefully use the right amount of stool softener for relieving your child of constipation.
  • Ensure that your child has a lot of fluids in his/her diet. Fluids help to hydrate the body and lubricate the digestive system.
  • Look into the fact that you child has regular toilet hours.

Stomach ache for 5 months continuously I have to go to bathroom please provide me some info.
There are a various causes for stomach problems, treatment depends on the location, severity and type of pain. Laboratory tests such as the complete blood count (cbc), liver enzymes, pancreatic enzymes (amylase and lipase), urinalysis are frequently performed in the evaluation of abdominal pain. If you have h. Pylori infection for which I can prescribe a 14 day treatment plan which will eliminate it. Untreated infection causes ulcers in stomach and may finally lead to cancer. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.
