If itching or swelling is bothersome, take an oral antihistamine. It might take 2-5 days for the area to heal. Keep it clean to prevent infection. In rare cases delayed reactions to bee bite are seen. Get your self checked by clinician.

try shampoos that do not contain sulfates or parabens. Sulfates are the chemicals that make shampoos lather up. Parabens are preservatives that cause irritation and eye problems after prolonged use. Both of these chemicals aren't healthy for you or the environment so try to use shampoos with natural cleansers--- homoeopathic shampoo arnica gold shampoo (bakson) this shampoo do not contain parabens and sulphates, so will not cause allergy in your hairs. Use shampoo twice a week.

My age is 29 years. My ESR is 52. Recently I had typhoid fever, can dis be the reason for high ESR.

M.D. (Ayurveda )
Ayurveda, Patiala
raised ESR can be detected in typhoid fever. But it is not very reliable marker for typhoid fever. It shows the extent of inflammation going on in the body. is there any body pains or stiffness in the body you are experiencing in your body. Kindly take indukantha kwatham, 3 tsf, twice a day before meals. Take sudarshana ghanavati, 2 tabs, and praval pishti , 1 tab, after meals, twice a day with tap water. Take khichdi, daliya, moong daal soup in your diet. Avoid cold water and cold eatables in your diet. Stop curd, spicy food in your diet. continue the regime for 15 days. Stay in touch. good luck

I am 27 yrs old. I am feeling very heavy in my stomach, I can say stomach feeling bloated. Infact I am not having periods from the last 4 months. My body is getting tight too much. Please suggest me any remedy.

MBBS, MD - Consultant Physician
General Physician, Ghaziabad
Welcome to lybrate. We are here to help you. Your seem to be suffering from acid reflux disease, which causes bloating and gas problems. So, the best way out in such scenario, is to take a combination of patoprazole and domperidone for a few days. This combination will help him with the acid reflux that causes bloating. Also, a good probiotic containing lactobacillus also helps. Curd is a very good natural source of probiotics and helps in settling the stomach issues very well. Papaya cleans the bowels as it acts as a good fiber laxative, so he will have less bloating. Avoid spicy food and stick to soft and bland diet. In case the problem persists you would require to get an ultrasound of abdomen and upper gi endoscopy done. I hope it helps. Stay healthy.
