Hallo, my husband has bxo and no one in sa can help him, the surgery only last 2 months before its back, this bxo is internal. What can we do?
BXO: Balanitis xerotica obliterans is also known as lichen sclerosis of the penis. It is most common in uncircumcised penises and can cause urethral obstructive symptoms when it involves the urethral meatus or distal urethra. If this is the case, you may need to find a urologist familiar with the plastic repair of such urethral narrowing. Topical or intralesional steroids can be helpful in mild case. ...Read more
I suffer from migraines & nothing here in the usa has worked for me so far. In sa, i used meds with codeine which worked. Any OTC alternative here?
Yes: Would not recommend any opiates, as there is rebound and the problem gets worse. Instead, focus of prevention, and this includes prescription meds, but also botox. Have had amazing success with petadolex, but also have used feverfew, riboflavin, magnesium, and co-q-10, all of which are otc. Maybe a nearby headache specialist can guide you. ...Read more
I want to know that if anybody had a sex before marriage then a husband can tell she is not a virgin. If we put a gap into 3 years in sex i mean to sa?
Whoa: There are many misunderstandings here. The hymen is not a tough membrane like the seal on a jar of instant coffee. It is flexible and how it looks does not correlate well with sexual history, especially a few episodes. Your doctor can explain further. If your husband-to-be will actually love you less should it somehow be proved you had intercourse years earlier, you have my sympathy. ...Read more
Semen analysis: Semen analysis is not a test of fertility rather an evaluation of production of sperm. Even with slight abnormalities fertility may not necessarily be affected. I'm assuming the numbers you are referring to pertain to morphology. If that is the case, those numbers are fine. The remaining numbers referring to count and motility are also important for full assessment. ...Read more
?sa: I am going to assume "sa" is seasonal allergies. So, yes, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) would work for these, but is certainly not the optimal answer. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tends to be sedating and also needs to be taken 4 times a day for optimal effect. If you are having to take doses that often to keep symptoms under control, should consider alternative treatment for allergies. If "sa" not allergies, please resubmit question. ...Read more

Mgt: This sometimes can occur prior to the dose, but I would recommend treating the pain with a heating pad and pain medication. Shortening the interval may increase the adverse reactions. Other possible changes to your regimen can include lowering the dose but giving the medication on a shorter interval. It is important to be tested for TB while taking the medication. ...Read more

CAN, not will!: Hi. The chance of AS parents having an SS child is 25%. Based on Mendelian distribution (which the sickle gene follows), 25% of children will be AA homozygotes, 50% will be AS heterozygotes, and 25% will be SS homozygotes. Amniotic genotyping is possible, and you could prevent an SS homozygote with testing. As you and your wife know, heterozygotes generally do fine. Peace and good luck. ...Read more

Will Paxil be as effective as the first time i took it? Right now im on pristiq (desvenlafaxine) but i think im gonna get back to paxil... Cz it really helped my SA
Discuss...: Talk to your provider about this first before making any changes yourself. If you were changed to another medication while you were taking Paxil (paroxetine) before there is most likely a good reason. Mental health medication is not harmless so it is very important that they are handled and taken as recommended. Different people react differently to medication. That's why it is important to f/u w/ your doctor. ...Read more

How soon should i give vitamins to my baby? Also is it still advisable that I'll let her have some karolyte (not sure with the spelling) but my mom sa
ProbablyNever;Whole: foods much better choice. Why? Vitamins=simple molecules so common in so many foods, humans have not retained every gene to make every protein (typically missing only 1 of many steps) so as to manufacture them out of other molecules. Thus the key is Real Food. Vitamins=marketing to sell stuff extracted from otherwise food waste for $. The ONLY common vit. deficiency 1st world countries is D3. ...Read more
