Avatar m tn A red face can be caused by a variety of diseases, disorders and conditions. Skin infections and conditions like rosacea, acne and eczema can cause redness of face. Any allergy, inflammatory conditions like vasculitis, sunburn, and allergies to foods, insect bites can cause redness of face.Fever,alcohol,COPD,polycythaemia vera can cause flushed face. Sweating, fainting can be due to hypoglycaemia, thyroid hormone imbalances, anxiety, heart problems like angina etc.
Avatar n tn Some medicines and life styles like steroids, cigarettes, alcohol and of course stress can do this. So can an over-active thyroid gland. He needs to have himself checked out.
Avatar n tn Alcoholics that go to meetings are told not to associate with others going to the same meetings, because this isn't healthy association outside of those purposeful meetings. First, throw out all the alcohol and nail polish and anything associated with it. Get rid of anything that you tend to gravitate toward that might be used as a substitute. Consider using natural cleaning recipes found on care2.
172336 tn?1202258241 My doc is one of the Hepatologists who says no alcohol on treatment, and no alcohol *while* you have this disease...and or until SVR status...there are many doctors who feel this way, he isn't the only one...My Own, a member of this board, posted a very enlightening video by the famous Dr. Dietrich, I can't find it and I wish she'd post it again, where Dr. Dietrich says "no alcohol with this disease." MO could you please post the link again, I'd like to see it again, thanks!
1963551 tn?1325604592 When I was in the hospital he had went on one of his destroying the house episodes, doing horrible things, throwing away my medicine, pictures, taking the mattress outside, before he left he cut the water hose and electirical hoses on the dryer and washing machine and flooded the house..He stayed in a hotel for 2 weeks and I told him he had to get help..just couldn't do this anymore. He called and said bye and I found out from his parents that he is in a rehab but he cant write or call..
Avatar m tn says, hang in there, keep doing what your doing and soon a cure should be available. I am geno type 1 and was given the interferon/ribovirin treatment for 6 mts. No change and after taken off I was already bed/couch ridden with very little energy. Then I began a quest to research this myself and found like most that all hygiene products have 3 to 20 or more chemicals a challenged liver cant deal with. Changed all those products to near nat.
Avatar m tn Most men's penis size will be the size of a "cashew" when it is not aroused to ejaculate. You are worrying unduly about the size of your penis. Because of your worrying about the size of your penis, I am thinking whether this has something to do with you not being able to hold a normal erection. Psychological worries can have an impact on your performance. Erectile dysfunction can happen to anyone. There are many reasons for erectile dysfunction.
Avatar f tn He will not cut down on anything else and I have been trying to get him to take fish oil tablets and men's health vitamins at the very least? I am so nervous about all of this especially since reading about people going cold turkey? what the heck are ZAPS. He will not let me into his head, and tells me not to nag if I bring any of this up!
Avatar f tn Once I started the licorice and caplets the warts got more puss-y, I squeezed them, gently for the first time, since incidental contact was making them leak and it was gross, then applied alcohol and more licorice extract. The next day they were flatter and darker, then over the next couple of days they got redder and then more flesh colored and softer. Its been 4 days now, I've gotten no new warts, and the ones I had are definitely dead and looking better each day.
Avatar n tn But then, after some cases of oral transmission (from the one getting sucked to the one sucking) were found in San Francisco, I noticed that some experts said that mouthwash and its alcohol content might actually have the opposite effect. The alcohol might destroy normal gum tissue and dry up saliva, both of which are key parts in guarding the mouth against the virus. Again, you might want to ask Dr. H about this, since I'm fumbling around with layman's information.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn *Find a free STD clinic in your zip code and get both you and your partner tested. Call the health department and they can give you information. *Consider the fact that you may be allergic to latex condoms. Swith to animal skin or non-latex condoms. Keep in mind that animal skin condoms are more porous than latex and can transmit certain stds. In conclusion, sex is not a bad thing, it's enjoyable, makes us feel good and the close contact makes us feel 'human'.
Avatar n tn I took Geritol for about 3 weeks as well as my husband, then i thought i was pregnant and switched over to prenatal pills, and sure enough i was! Im currently 7 weeks pregnant. Good luck to you!! My pregnancy isnt going so well though(not geritol related) but hopefully yours will be better!!
Avatar m tn You might also post in men's health or urology forums.
Avatar n tn Ive only linked it to ejaculation and urination. Alcohol really brings it on though, and since i was younger its the only time it happens. And im sick of the group joke of "Hot Tip Tim".Does anyone have the correct termonology of this condition or at least a new name for my friends to joke about! , "Hot Tip" This discussion is related to <a href=''>Periodic tip of penis pain after ejaculation, burning</a>.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn WOW! 22 pounds is a lot of weight to loose in such a short period of time! Good for you!!! I hope that I am able to loose 22 pounds in the next couple of months. Are you following a diet plan and working out? I have not started working out yet....maybe one day...I don't have a diet plan either I am just trying to make good choices and watch my portions. This way I know that when I stop the shots and medicine I won't gain it all back. Lets hope!!! Best of Luck to you...
Avatar m tn Shave some slices and steep in boiling water for a soothing tea, recommends Bill Phillips, Men's Health editor-in-chief and author of The Better Man Project. Not only do its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful to people with arthritis, bursitis, or tendonitis, but it can also help relieve gas, nausea, motion sickness, allergies, and bad breath, says Phillips. Tart cherries instead of pills.
Avatar f tn read the story of tim mcgraw in this month's men's health magazine or google it. great example of how to change your life and live without alcohol. also, read through the alcoholism section of this site and you will thank your lucky stars you are not that far. good luck p.s. alcohol ages you dramatically. almost the same as before and after shots of meth addicts.
Avatar f tn I'm sorry you and your husband are in this situation with his addiction to alcohol. I take it he's not interested in stopping for health reasons?

632093 tn?1230349566 We tried Viagra, and that only partially helped for about 15 minutes. So, we went to this Men's Sexual Health Clinic that advertised 100% effectiveness or your money back. They did an ultrasound and said that his blood flow was fine and set him up with these injections that he administers directly into the side of his penis. The dosages are adjustable as needed, for effectiveness. This has been an improvement but still not getting full erection.
Avatar n tn I have been to two urologists, and my primary doctor several times. I was tested for every STD and all came back negative. The test were done months after the contact, so if there were an anti-body to an STD it should have showed up. They gave me Clotrimazole and Fluconazole (Diflucan) twice. My urologist said it was balantis and I would be fine. Initially, I felt a little better, but it never went all the way away. Oh.....
Avatar n tn I have tried both with my partner. Too much alcohol but whisky seems the common one to upset me. Red wine is ok, and the last one is heat. If I get really hot, there it goes. Of course this is bad as I live in a tropical climate. I do have sex fairly regularly but this is not as frequent since I have had the issue. I have had the issue for 6 months now and have spent nearly $10K with doctors to no avail.
Avatar m tn The 13 Most Powerful Superfoods Avocados They're high in fat, but avocados contain healthful monounsaturated fat, which has been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. "Avocados aid in blood and tissue regeneration, stabilize blood sugar, and are excellent for heart disorders," says Ed Bauman, Ph.D., director of Bauman College. They're loaded with fiber (11 to 17 grams per fruit) and are a good source of lutein, an antioxidant linked to eye and skin health.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor today, and he wants some blood work done. marked off as follows: glucose creatinine sodium potassium chloride AST (SGOT) ALK. phosphatase cholesterol triglceride WBC count Bio-available tesosterone Fsk, lh stsh alt, 66t.
Avatar n tn This is really illuminating to find so many others suffering almost identical symptoms. I am a 58 year old male pretty fit and in generally good health. My problem is the intense tearing pain I get in my right knee when I bend at a certain angle and at a certain time. I can't define either because it's so uncertain. I can do situps now with no problem. We all seem to refer to this pain as a tearing pain as it feels like a wound that has been stiched together is tearing apart.
Avatar m tn I guess no one cares about men's health, unless it's about some guys crooked penis or about some kid jacking off for the first time. yeah!
