Sexual Relief: Some type of sexual release such as masturbation, sexual intercourse or eventually you will probably have an erotic dream with emission. Regardless, no harm will come either way.

Ejaculation: This happens when there's way too much fluid in your seminal vesicles compressing the nearby genitofemoral nerve and causing the referred pain. It results either from abstinence or from prolonged arousal without final satisfaction. Ejaculation -- which will be copious -- will bring about immediate relief and you owe it to yourself to make sure this happens. Best wishes.

Discuss neurosurgery: Do not stop taking your medications until advised by your neurologist/seizure specialist.. Ask your neurologist to discuss stereotactic evaluation at a neurosurgical center performing these tests as well as treatments. You may or may not be a candidate. Good luck.

Therapy: You must be very patient and seek the help of a child psychiatrist and a therapist, avoid situations where he might feel uncomfortable or "closed in". Do not avoid the issue, but help him confront it with the help of professionals . Also make sure the adults around him do not project behaviors that the child will pick up on.

How do I get rid of excessive blushing? I blush so often that I've begun to exclude myself from situations that require me to communicate with people .

Excessive blushing: People normally blush when they get excited, angry or embarrassed. Blushing can be triggered by scpicy foods, alcohol or hot temperature. Excessive blushing, however, can be due to social anxiety or panic disorder. Or medical conditions such as carcinoid syndrome, rosacea, or systemic mastocytosis can cause blushing. If you know the triggers such as foods, avoid them. I suggest you see a doctor.

A 24-year-old male asked:
Is there any other way to get rid of blue balls without ejaculating? Would any medication work? Could i just put ice packs?

"Blue balls": The condition you describe is most often due to prolonged erection. The erect penis, although engorged with blood, actually has ver low blood flow in and out . This "ischemia" due to poor oxygen delivery to the penis tissue eventually causes severe penile pain which often is referred to the scrotum and testes. Ejaculation typically causes the erection to subside. Thus, blood flow improves.
