He didnt. But he showed my tooth in a mirror after cleaning. But if I chew anything, this tooth plays the most important role. The technical term is molar I guess, in the lower jaw

Well then, wait and watch for the time being. Did you have any pain at all in that tooth in the past? The temporary filling will last you a week or more. If you have pain in that tooth now, or a swelling in the gums around that tooth, a filling won't suffice.

Ask your dentist to x-ray the tooth, and perhaps you can post the image here.

I never had pain. Food used to get stuck there. I had a filling in 2004/2005 IIRC.

The temporary filling was done last night at 730 PM. Today, I dont have any pain or swelling .

The dentist said, I will get a permanent filling on Monday.

You might want to defer getting the permanent filling for a few days.

OK. Any specific reasons ? Monday is a holiday for me, so planned it on MONDAY.

Would Wednesday be OK ?

Do not over-do with Selsun and such harsh chemicals. You are bound to have hair fall with these things.
The best thing to slow down hair fall is proper diet - eat lots of fresh fruits, dry fruits, timely meals and plenty of water.
That has personally helped me a lot.

You can try almond oil massage as well for your scalp. But having short hair is better in such circumstances.

Sorry, I don't have any pop-a-pill-and-see-magic suggestions.

Hello Doctors,

Greetings.

This is Jignesh from Mumbai riding Bajaj Pulsars since eight years.

Unfortunately last month on 17th December while emergency braking my right leg touched the bike's Exhaust pipe & I suffered second degree burn on the Calf / Shin area.

The Burn wound was approx 3 x 2 inches in size. I approached a local physician & he advised to apply a thick layer of Silver Nitrate Ointment 3 / 4 times a day.

Subsequently on 19th December I approached a skin specialist & she advised me the following for next 5 days:
1. Enzoflam tablets for pain relief
2. Zefu-CV 500 mg tablets for resisting infections
3. Fucidin Cream to be applied on the wound twice a day after cleaning with gauze swab & normal saline water.

On 24th December she advised me the following:
1. Enzoflam tablets if required
2. Zefu CV - 250 mg for 6 days
3. Dressing on the wound during day time & leave it open at night (after applying Fucidin ointment)

On 2nd January She advised me the following:
1. Dressing on the wound during time & leave it open at night
2. Megaheal Ointment during day (with dressing)
3. Fucidin ointment at night (without dressing)

On a homeopath friend's advise I have also tried applying Calendula Ointment on the wound for two day while dressing.

The reason for this long post is even after 16 / 17 days the wound still hurts (burns) when trousers / bed sheet touches it while it is left open at night.

Can you kindly suggest something that will promote faster healing.

Thanks,

Faster healing... stay away. Burns take some time to heal, and they are best left to your body's discretion. 2nd degree superficial thickness burns take about 2-3 weeks minimum to heal, and 2nd degree superficial thickness burns take upto 2 months (on average) to heal.

I don't know what are the contents of the calendula(??) cream, but the traditional ingredient to heal burns (esp. superficial) was honey.

It is difficult to determine exactly how much healing has occurred w/o seeing it in person, and your skin doc has prescribed the treatment more or less correctly. However, fyi, just for your future reference, the treatment of burns is usually managed by surgeons. If you can, just seek an opinion of a good one in your area.

To reduce pain of superficial burns, keep your leg in running cold water (do not apply ice or ice cold water though. Just cold) for 10-15 mins.

Thanks,

Thank you very much for your response Doctor.

Appreciate.

Calendula Ointment Contains - 10% Calendula Extract, Petroleum Jelly base & Less than 1% Alcohol. It is basically a Homeopathy medicine.

Thanks,

Need some help for a friend.
He had severe abdominal pain yesterday, the doctor suggested some blood tests and abdominal/pelvis sonography. Loking at the report the doctor said that there is an infection to the appendix (spelling) and asked him if he wants it to be removed. We are not sure if it needs to be.
My friend had this pain about 3 times in the past 4 months... I know it is a very generic query, but any help would be much appreciated.
Where:Apple hospital, vishal nagar, Pune.

Take a second opinion from a gastroenterologist/surgeon. If there is suspicion of appendicitis, surgery should be performed as a ruptured appendix with infection is a life threatening emergency.

Thank you very much Doctor.
We took another opinion and decided to go with the operation.
Thanks again.

Default Bleeding gums & Gum astringent

In November 2013, I had my teeth cleaned. The dentist mentioned that I had excessive gum bleeding on the lower jaw. Post this he suggested that I use Stolin Gum Astringent and massage my gums 3-4 times a day for 3 weeks.

I followed the 3 times a day regime for about 3 weeks. Then moved to 2 times a day (morning post breakfast; then at night before I went to bed).

Problem is, when I stop using it, the bleeding is back. I notice blood after brushing, or even a good gum massage. Not that it fully stopped in the 3 weeks that I had used it regularly.

Had some questions regarding this, could someone help me with the answers or some pointers?
1. How long do I have to use Stolin to fix to the bleeding gum problem?
2. I have started flossing twice a day, is flossing actually opening up the gums, without letting it heal?
3. Would regular use of Stolin or such gum astringent result in teeth color loss?

Ps- I did read about bleeding gums being sign of BP, this gave me some sleepless nights, so I did have that checked out. Thankfully that is not over the top.

Not a dentist, but a patient. I had gum bleeding a month or two back. The dentist did a cleaning & scaling in 2 sessions. Asked me to use 1 bottle of Orahex Plus mouthwash at morning and night till the bottle finishes. Also asked me to use Paradontax toothpaste. The bleeding did not recur after the cleaning/scaling.

Also if you were using blood thinners like Aspirin - that also increases the chances of gum bleeding.

Dr.Tejas who has started this thread, has written about Stolin many pages back.
