What precaution to be take in case of dengue? Please advice.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
What precaution to be take in case of dengue? Please advice.
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. When outdoors, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into socks.

In diabetes portion size of food matters. Normal person eats around 3-4 times day, diabetic person should eat atleast 6 times per day but small meals at a time. Long fasting causes high glycemic variation in blood sugar levels which is bad for diabetic person. He should carry some fruits like apple or oranges which he can have in free time in office.

Vsd is by birth, a congenital anomaly, not genetic or aquired. When there is a hole between 2 chambers of lower heart which pump the blood to entire body & to lungs for purification with fresh oxygen, the pumping action of heart will be affected for sure. Luckily the defect can be corrected but not during pregnancy. Depends upon symptoms. Avoid extra load on heart by rest, avoid swelling on body by reducing salt, eat more proteins to help baby grow faster & do operation to deliver the baby according to symptoms shown by mother about her heart being affected or not, she can carry the baby to full term at 36 weeks or an early delivery needs to be planned. But vsd is not inherited. Be sure to have a normal baby.

I am 20 yrs old and suffering from jaundice due to hemolytic anaemia from 17 yrs but didn't get any treatment completely. So what should I do?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Symptomatic treatment can be given by blood transfusion, if there is marked anemia. In severe immune-related hemolytic anemia, steroid therapy is sometimes necessary. Sometimes splenectomy can be helpful where extravascular hemolysis, or hereditary spherocytosis, is predominant (i. E, most of the red blood cells are being removed by the spleen).[21] it may help you.

Having pain in legs from last 2 weeks. Please help.
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continuous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, 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.

Having cough with out fever from four months, x ray normal, blood tests normal, took many antibiotics like azitheromicine, cough syrups, xop, etc but nothing works. Please suggest what should I do. Currently I am not on any medicine as I took medicines for two months and now I fear that continue medicine taking can cause any problem, doctors says no lung problem or asthma. What should I do. How can I cure my cough. Please note that some times it is productive cough and many times dry cough. Please suggest to help me from this cough.?

PG Hom, London, BHMS

Hi , may I know if you smoke? smoking is one of the widest reason for causing cough. If not, then I would suggest that you undergo an ecg, just to be sure that it is not related to heart i. E. Cardiac cough. The chances of any abnormality in the ecg might be low, considering your age, but it is better to rule out.

Dear lybrate-user, during an episode of mania, you tend to lose insight. You believe that you are normal and others are trying to label you. During manic phase, you may lose name, fame, prestige and money. That is why you were admitted for treatment. Since bpad is a chronically recurring disease, you are continuously given lithosun s r as mood stabiliser. If you stop the medicines, you may get another manic attack which is costly needing admission. If you continue with lithosun regularly during normal phase also, your manic attack will be mild and only for few days which can be treated with arip and pacitane. Of course drugs do have side effects like weight increase and sexual power problems. But think of the effect of the drug in reducing the burden of mania. If you are still concerned about side effects, do not stop lithosun, talk to your doctor. He will reduce the dose or change the drug or add another drug to control side effects. He has already seem to have stopped diva considering your weight. Sexual power may be due to your mood rather than side effect of lithosun.
