I am an obese person, i get burning rashes between the legs due to friction when i walk more. It continues paining. Kindly suggest anasthatic cream.

Zinc oxide: An anesthetic cream is not the answer. You have to treat the problem. The best remedy is obviously to try to lose some weight but i'm sure you are doing this. Try to rub zinc oxide paste on the part of the thighs that are rubbing. This is a great skin lubricant that will stay on your skin and continue to help all day. When the rash is bad, try rubbing 1% Hydrocortisone cream under the zinc. ...Read more

Allergy?: You may likely have an allergy to one of many common allergens in deodorants. One being fragrance as well as aluminum or other ingredients. Have you tried Mitchum un-scented roll on or Certain Dri? If those also irritate I would suggest considering allergy testing to know which ingredient is irritating so much. Consider also aluminum alum crystals to try. Best of luck! ...Read more

Assuming general good health. One man is obese, the other is muscular and lean-5-7% bf%. No access to food or water in a desert, who would die 1st? Y?

Assuming general good health. One man is obese, the other is muscular and lean-5-7% bf%. No access to food or water in a desert, who would die 1st? Y?

Interesting question: The death for both would most likely be due to lack of water. If the obesity was due to water retention (a common cause) and if the body could use the accumulated water the obese person might survive longer. If it was fat rather than water the obese would live longer in regard to hunger since he could live on his fat. I believe that water would be the vital issue. It is purely theoretical. ...Read more

Can a obese man 28 years old get increase his penis size while reducing his weight.?

Can a obese man 28 years old get increase his penis size while reducing his weight.?

See answer: Many obese men feel their penis is too short but most often perception and not reality: related to accumulation of fat in the area just above base of penis which drapes over it making penis seem buried or short. Actual length (measured from tip to pubic bone with penis on stretch) is normal. Treatment is weight loss (not pills or special exercises or devices) and sexual activity: use it or lose it. ...Read more

Is it true that for obese men, doctors will recommend a strict 800 calorie diet but wont with obese women? If so, why?

Is it true that for obese men,  doctors will recommend a strict 800 calorie diet but wont with obese women? If so, why?

I don't think so: The key to weight loss for men or women is reducing calories long-term. Men usually burn more calories per day than women, assuming similar levels of activity and similar body mass. Every individual's daily calorie needs are different, but to lose weight, one must keep reducing calories until the weight starts coming off. If weight is stable, it means the body still has enough calories to keep it. ...Read more
