Tattoo Removal

Posted October 21st, 2017 by Duken

A few years ago my son was involved with a group of “wild” kids. During that time, he did many foolish things that he now regrets. Although those events are now in his past, he unfortunately also had several unsightly tattoos placed on the backs of his hands. The letters “LOVE” and “HATE” are written across the backs of each of his fingers. These marks of his past have unfortunately prevented him from getting a good job. People he meets wonder what kind of person he used to be.

Is there any way that he can have these tattoos removed? My son is quite fearful of any procedure that would be painful or would leave scarring behind. We would appreciate any help you could give us in helping us to more completely turn our son’s life back around. Thank you!

I have good news for you–laser is a method available for removing tattoos. Light energy is absorbed rapidly by the ink, thus destroying the ink without harming the skin itself, although there may be pinpoint bleeding for a brief period afterwards. A treatment takes about 5 minutes and is minimally painful.

According to Dr. David Crosby, associate professor of dermatology at the Medical College of Wisconsin, the average tattoo may require 5-6 treatments to achieve fading. Usually treatments are spaced a month apart. In his experience, tattoos placed by an amateur require fewer treatments to get results. Some of infected tattoo need to pay a close attention to treatment and aftercare. Most tattoos will fade after laser treatment, but complete removal may not always be possible, especially with certain inks, such as green and yellow. Scarring is usually minimal.

As being part of the reproductive system for males, the prostate gland has an important function with regards to the normal work in the fertility of men. The prostate gland is positioned just below the bladder in males and is important in verifying that the sperms cells are developed so the fertility will be an optimal condition. The secretions are white and milky which will work as a the buffer for the acidic environment in the uterus that can be dangerous for the sperm so that it can commence the fertilization. In addition, the prostate gland can create a certain enzyme which is referred to as prostatic specific antigen or PSA, wherein it is made use of as a marker to possibly diagnose problems in prostate health, which entails cancer of the prostate and benign prostatic hyperplasia, wherein the tissue growth of the prostate is beyond the normal rate.

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms and Treatment

Posted October 10th, 2017 by Duken

Alcohol withdrawal refers to the symptoms that occur when someone who is a chronic alcohol consumer and suddenly stop drinking alcohol.

Alcohol Withdrawal happens most often in Adults, but can occur in teenagers who drink to often. The more you consume every day, the more likely you are to develop alcohol withdrawal symptoms. There are a few people with Ethanol which is often abbreviated as EtOH, learn more what EtOH does mean.

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms tend to occur within 5-12 hours after your last drink but sometimes can occur days after. Symptoms will get worse when you reach 48-72 hours after the last drink.

Alcohol Withdrawal Symptoms:

  • Anxiety & Nervousness
  • Depression
  • Unclear Thoughts
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Nightmares

More severe form of Alcohol Withdrawal can cause:

  • Agitation
  • Severe Confusion
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures
  • Fever

Alcohol Withdrawal Treatment

The immediate goal of treatment is to calm the patient down, as nearly 95% of people have moderate moderate withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms include trembling, trouble sleeping, agitation, and lack of appetite.

After examination by a medical professional, the patient is generally sent home with a few days worth of anxiety medication and advised to check back frequently to ensure withdrawal symptoms don’t worsen. It is strongly recommended that the patient not be alone through the week following Alcohol Withdrawal Treatment. This is to ensure that someone is always handy to assist the patient and to make sure they do not relapse.

Their can be side effects with taking anti-anxiety medications, also known as Benzodiazepines. These drugs lose their effectiveness over time which results in the patient increasing their dosage which leads to the patient becoming dependent. Coming off of Benzodiazepines after becoming dependent to them will cause more withdrawal symptoms.

Patient must consult their Doctor or other medical professional before discontinuing anti-anxiety medications.

Pleural thickening can also be referred to as DPT, diffuse pleural thickening. It is a disease that afflicts the protective membrane around the lungs known as the pleura. It results from scarring of the pleura, and as the scar tissue progresses it may begin to occlude the space between the lungs and pleura.

Causes of plural thickening and its severity may vary. A common cause for plural thickening is the inhalation exposure of asbestos, something which we’ve teamed up with Asbestos Advice Helpline to take a look at. When exposed to asbestos, inhaled fibers may stick in the pleura and be the cause of inflammation and cause the growth of scar tissue.

Asbestos exposure is not the only cause of pleural thickening. Other causes of pleural thickening include: the buildup of pus in the pleural space (empyema), blood accumulating in the pleural space (hemothorax), a blockage of pulmonary arteries (pulmonary embolism), and a type of pleural inflammation known as fibrinous pleuritis.

Pleural thickening is not to be confused with pleural plaques. Pleural plaques are firm, and often calcified, scar tissue that grows in patches on the pleura. Plaques may be comorbid with pleural thickening, but the plaques offer much less risk of lung function impairment. Pleural thickening is also common after a patient suffers a pleural effusion (buildup of fluid in the space between the pleura).

Symptoms of Pleural Thickening

In early stages, pleural thickening does not present symptoms that a patient may notice. With the progression of the disease, patience will notice an increase in the severity of symptoms. The primary complaints offered by those afflicted with pleural thickening are breathlessness and chest pain. Pleural thickening can cause restrictive lung disease: it may prevent the lungs from fully expanding. The related drop in lung volume may present to patients as their need to work harder to breathe. The swelling of the pleura reduces the amount of space that the lungs have inside the rib cage, so labored breathing and shortness of breath are signs that the lungs are not being allowed to fill to their full volume. This is what creates the sensation of shortness of breath in patients with pleural thickening.

Symptoms can be generalized to: shortness of breath, a tight feeling across the chest, and general chest pain (usually manifest after physical exertion). For those who have chest pain in the left side, check out this content. If the patient has pleural thickening that is progressive, such as that which results from asbestos exposure, pleural thickening may eventually become debilitating and pose threats to their quality of life.

Treatment

The damage that causes pleural thickening is irreversible, but there are available treatment options. Doctors will most commonly prescribe therapies that can help with the symptoms of pleural thickening, but may choose to include medications like bronchodilators or steroids that can ease breathing.

Smoking tobacco can contribute to decreased lung function, so it is in a smoking patient’s best interest to quit smoking as soon as possible- especially if the patient is diagnosed with pleural thickening. The cessation of smoking will also reduce the patient’s risk of developing more hazardous lung diseases.

Questions on shortness of breath

Posted March 7th, 2017 by Duken

I have been having sharp chest pains on the left side, like its-dull, shooting pain. It is causing me to have shortness of breath after eating and it a very scary feeling I am a 23 year old female who smokes and drinks. I have asthma and IBS and suffer football-mad.

23 yr. old female or not, you have classic symptoms of someone whose physical condition is out of control, and if not careful, will develop into something more serious. first of all, what you describe are in fact initial symptoms of a heart issue. i’d suggest you see a physician as soon as possible and relay exactly what you are experiencing. You may have high blood pressure, which is a cause an effect of your smoking and drinking, coupled with asthma and who knows what else. we seldom get warning signs that our bodies need medical attention, so please don’t ignore yours. i also wont get on a bandwagon and tell you to stop smoking, especially with asthma as you already know that, but try cutting back little by little, and if you put yourself in a smokey environment, remove yourself from it. i do hope you take care of yourself and good luck. It’s a good idea to make an appointment straight away with your DR.

I’m starting to feel sick…Headaches. nose stuffy and.shortness of breath wen I work out…idk if its a fever trynatake me down or if its allergy///anyway I cannot get sick rite now! so what should I do?

Buy airbourne and start taking that daily as a supplement of sorts. It really does work because it’s doing wonders for me right now.

BCG for TB(Tuberculosis)

Posted January 10th, 2017 by Duken

I had a BCG jab in November & the areas still red & itchy….. this aint right is it?

I think that’s right.

Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (or Bacille Calmette-Guérin, BCG) is a vaccine against tuberculosis that is prepared from a strain of the attenuated (weakened) live bovine tuberculosis bacillus, Mycobacterium bovis, that has lost its virulence in humans by being specially cultured in an artificial medium for years. The bacilli have retained enough strong antigenicity to become a somewhat effective vaccine for the prevention of human tuberculosis. At best, the BCG vaccine is 80% effective in preventing tuberculosis for a duration of 15 years, however, its protective effect appears to vary according to geography.

After the vaccination a small red spot usually develops within 2-6 weeks. After a few weeks the spot usually becomes scaly, crusting and with slight bruising. This will eventually heal to form a round flat scar. It is better if you leave the injection site uncovered as this will aid in the healing. In some cases a small shallow ulcer appears. In the rare situation that a reaction occurs medical advice should be sought from your doctor or practice nurse as soon as possible.

Mantoux test

The BCG vaccination should never be given to a person who has a “positive” tuberculin skin test. A “strong” positive test might indicate that you will need to visit a chest clinic for further assessment.

A Mantoux Test is done before having the BCG vaccination in all persons over the age of 6 years or earlier if the child has been “at risk” of TB. Routine vaccination is no longer carried out in schools – however, a new improved immunization programme targets those at greatest risk to the disease.

The Mantoux test is given “intradermally” into the lower left forearm. The tuberculin test is injected into the arm at skin level. After the injection some people experience mild itching or swelling but this usually goes within a week.

You will need to avoid itching the injection site, keeping it clean and dry – water won’t hurt it so you can bath or shower – but try not to scrub it! Don’t put a bandage on the site and don’t use any lotions or creams on the injection site.

When planning your vaccine schedule, the test can be given at the same as other “inactive” vaccines. If you need “live” vaccines you should have these four weeks before or after the test as they can “suppress” the result.

The results are read 48 to 78 hours later and you should ideally make this appointment when you make one for the Mantoux Test.

Comments

  • •Many thanks, I managed to miss out on the whole thing in school so it was all new to me. Pleased to say that the swelling has gone down & it’s no longer itchy. There’s still a small red spot but I guess it’ll turn into a scar in due course.
  • Yes….It is normal…..but this was months ago..stop whining….
  • a max of 4 weekz iz fine… aftr tht wud betr c the doc… jus kiddin… :P… he he… gues itz ok unles itz swelin n sored… peace!!!
  • Did you have the skin test before the vaccine? If you had a positive result to the skin test, you should not have been given the vaccine.

  • whose urine smells good?
  • What do you expect to come out of there, perfume?
  • I smell my bad urine. I went to see my doctor. My doctor said that I need to drink the water a lot and fruit juice. That’s all.
  • How much water do you drink in a day?
  • because all the chemicals in your body give off harmful gases that smell bad. and mixes with your urine
  • You may have a UTI (urinary tract infection). It can make the urine seem concentrated. Get some antibiotics from the doctor and drink plenty of water. The very best thing to keep your waterworks in tip-top condition is cranberry juice.
  • Infection, garlic, curry?…..infection!
  • Eaten any asparagus lately?….;-D…

Why do my urine smells like ammonia?

Strong smelling urine is often a sign of dehydration.

QnA on urine test

Posted January 10th, 2017 by Duken

I had a urine test last week and had been using left overpercocet (7.5mg) 3-4 a day for about 2 weeks. Will the drug test show up the same as if I had been taking Lortab?

I’d say yes, on all of my drug screenings, they categorize drugs. Marijuana is its own classification, but all painkillers show up as one, (look online for the name). However, they can find the specificity of the drug at the lab, but they wont look for an exact distinction unless asked…

Can you fail urine drug test taking hydroxyzine pamoate?

No, there is nothing in that except for an Antihistimine. Tell the person who tests you what medications you are on before you give the sample.

Would lsd show up in a (urine) drug test?

It doesn’t unless you are under the influence at the time of the test.

Will percocet and oxycontin show up the same in a urine test?

No inappropriate use = no worries.
Dump the illegal stuff in the toilet.
Flush.
Put the containers in the trash.
Wash your hands.
Be free of the need for questions like this.

Are you using? If so quit then you can be worry free. In these economic times a person has to be held to a higher standard if they are going to have a chance of making it.

Yes…opiates.. You know the details here.

They will show up as opiates, and you’ll be fired or violated. Stop taking those pills, Dummy!

How to Make Cucumber and Yogurt Sauce

Posted April 15th, 2016 by Garth

Cucumber yogurt sauce, more commonly known as tzatziki is a very popular dish in the Mediterranean and with good reason. It is a refreshing, delicious dish that is packed full of nutrients. It is great for dipping vegetables or even falafel into, it’s also great for spreading on top of chicken for a unique cold salad.

Another advantage to this cucumber yogurt dip can be made in large batches and kept in the fridge for up to a week.

In order to make this delicious sauce you will need:

A large tub of plain, low fat yogurt

1 lemon

1 large cucumber

1 clove of garlic

1 tsp. parsley

The first thing you will need to do is peel your cucumber, make sure that it is completely peeled as no skin should be left on or it will not blend properly. Once you have done this then you will need to seed the cucumber, you can do this by slicing the cucumber in half length ways and using a teaspoon to scrape the seeds out. Try to keep as much flesh as possible. Once you have peeled and seeded the cucumber then you will need to either finely dice or grate it

Add 8oz plain yogurt into a bowl and then add the diced or grated cucumber, for a completely smooth dip you can blend these ingredients in a food processor or for a sauce with more texture you can simply stir them.

The next thing you need to do is peel all of the skin away from the clove of garlic and mince it finely. Add this to the bowl containing the cucumber and yogurt and then add the juice of half of the lemon. Try to avoid letting any lemon seeds fall into the dip and if they do you need to try and remove them.

The next step is to chop the parsley as finely as you can, the parsley will add a really subtle flavour to the sauce but it needs to be chopped as finely as possible. Once you have chopped it then add it to the mixture and either stir or blend. Many people add dried parsley to the sauce instead of fresh parsley, this is much easier to use and does not require any chopping.

Add salt and pepper to taste and then refrigerate the entire mixture. Serve chilled and with a sprig of fresh parsley on top to garnish.

You can add other ingredients to the mixture if you want to make a variation on this sauce; some popular choices are chopped chillies, vinegar or even limes.
