Home remedy for psoriasis

Standard

As salam,

Psoriasis is one type of skin disease. I read that it’s a genetic disease and an immune-mediated disease. I had psoriasis. My late father and my mum both having the same problem. I’ve been having it since my teenage years. It was never cured. It’ll come and go. The worse part is that is leaves an ugly scares. Ur skin will turn darker at the infected area. I had at my feet. Buruk la rupa kaki. Bertompok2 parut hitam.

ps

Psoriasis can be as mild as this.

ps1

Gettin’ worse.

ps2

And as worse as this. Even worse… U’ll feel itchy all the time.

I came across this website giving ideas on home remedy for this problem. I realize that it’ll never cure, but at least it can control it.

Water therapy

Dry skin can make psoriasis became worse. What u need to do is to dip the infected area into lukewarm water for few minutes to soften the flaky skin. Then u can peel it of. Once done, moisturize ur skin.

Coconut oilps3

It contains lauric acid which has the property of  anti bacteria and anti inflammatory agent. Rub the oil on the infected area so that it can moisturize and calm the inflammation.

Apple cider vinegar

Mix 1 part of apple cider vinegar with half part of water. Dip the infected area into the solution for about 10 minutes. Do this regularly, InsyaAllah the affected area will turn to its original color ( I really have to try this).

Aloe veraps5

Apply the gel 6-7 times daily as it can moisturize the infected area.

Olive oilps4

Also good to moisturize the infected area. U can also mix it with few drops of tea tree oil since they both contain anti fungal and anti infection properties.

Jangan kacaula, tengah STRESS ni!

Standard

As salam,

Harini nak recap bout stress. Favourite word ni. stress

SITUATION 1

Orang datang kat meja kita nak tanya something tiba2 kena marah, “Ko jangan kacau aku boleh tak? Aku stress ni, deadline petang ni, bos nak itu ini, ko ni pulak nak menyibuk kat sini. bla bla bla…..”

 

SITUATION 2

Tengah2 sibuk masak kat dapur, mak mertua nak datang lagi sejam, tiba2 dengar bunyi bising kat living room. Pegi tengok,  tiba2 nampak vase kaca favourite pecah berderai. Anak kesayangan umur 2 tahun berdiri tegak kat tepi vase tu. Pangggg…. tergolek anak kecik tu kena penampar. Berbekas kat pipi, anak tergolek kat atas lantai.

 

SITUATION 3

Si suami tengah driving, wife keep on calling, suruh beli susu anak, suruh balik awal, suruh itu, suruh ini. Husband tak dapat concentrate on driving, hati dah panas, lampu merah pun tak berhenti. Another car coming over, husband end up in the hospital.

 

Did any of the situation looks familiar to u? Kalau tak jadi kat diri sendiri pun, pernah dengar or baca kat mana maybe. Here’s the outcome of people being stress. Tak boleh fikir dengan betul. In SITUATION 1 for example, kawan dia datang kat meja dia terus marah2. Why not u cool down a bit. Mana tahu sebenarnya kawan tu datang nak offer some help, or nak bagitau yang bos cakap the deadline can be delay to tomorrow. Or he just wanna say Hi, jawab jelah Hi and just tell him that ur into something urgent that u’ll catch him up later. Sounds better right?

SITUATION 2, kesian anak kecik tu. Ada 2 possiblities jugak kat sini, anak tu tak sengaja terlanggar vase tu atau memang dia pecahkan. But what do u expect from a small kid? Talk to him softly. Jangan tempered tak tentu pasal.

The wife can wait til the husband reach home in SITUATION 3. Husband is driving, dengar wife pot pet2 kat phone, terus fikiran pun jadi kusut.

Cakap senang kan? Diri sendiri pun selalu jugak stress. Tapi tadi after read through things related to stress, I promised to myself that I have to learn to control myself. Sebab apa tau?

stress1This really scares me. Nauzubillah minzalik. And I found these tips to handle stress.

1. Face it.

2. Eat Healthy Foods

3. Exercise!!!

4. Take a Bath

5. Relaxing Music

6. Pray to Allah

 

 

UTI – Women’s common problem

Standard

As salam,

Cepatnya dah habis weekend. It’s Monday again. Tengok tajuk entry ni, maybe ada yang wonder whay’s UTI? It stands for Urinary Tract Infection ataupun orang panggil dalam bahasa biasa – kencing kotor. Kenapa kita kata women’s common problem? Sebab UTI ni memang orang perempuan yang ramai n selalu kena. Tak kira la budak kecik ataupun orang dewasa. Orang lelaki jarang kena sebab laluan ke salur kencing diorang lebih panjang compared to women.

Tahun ni je kita dah kena warded for 3 times sebab kena UTI. Azabnya sebab kena cucuk kat tangan untuk masukkan drip n antibiotik. Masa bagi sample urine pun kaler urine tu gelap sangat sebab urine full of blood. Dr masukkan drip 2 – 3 botol sehari sebab nak suruh kencing dgn kerap. Nak flush out all the bad bacterias. Imagine la dgn tangan yg berjarum, drip yang tergantung tu asyik nak kena ulang pegi toilet pulak. Bukan sejam sekali, tapi sejam berkali2. Arggghhhhh….

Ok, entry ni adalah untuk bagi some info to all on what is UTI, symptoms and how to treat UTI. I got the info from various sources. Nanti kita bagi some of the links for u guys to refer to.

utiWhat’s UTI?

  • Infections of the urethra, bladder, ureters, or the kidneys, which comprise the urinary tract.
  • E. coli bacteria cause the majority of UTIs, but many other bacteria, fungi, and parasites may also cause UTIs.

What causes UTI?

  • Wiping from back to front after a bowel movement (BM). Germs can get into your urethra, which has its opening in front of the vagina.
  • Having sexual intercourse. Germs in the vagina can be pushed into the urethra.
  • Waiting too long to pass urine. When urine stays in the bladder for a long time, more germs are made, and the worse a UTI can become.
  • Using a diaphragm  for birth control, or spermicides (creams that kill sperm) with a diaphragm or on a condom.
  • Anything that makes it hard to completely empty your bladder, like a kidney stone.
  • Having diabetes, which makes it harder for your body to fight other health problems.
  • Loss of estrogen  and changes in the vagina after menopause. Menopause is when you stop getting your period.
  • Having had a catheter in place. A catheter is a thin tube put through the urethra into the bladder. It’s used to drain urine during a medical test and for people who cannot pass urine on their own.

Symptoms:

  • You feel pain or burning when you urinate.
  • You feel like you have to urinate often, but not much urine comes out when you do.
  • Your belly feels tender or heavy.
  • Your urine is cloudy or smells bad.
  • You have pain on one side of your back under your ribs. This is where your kidneys are.
  • You have fever and chills.
  • You have nausea and vomiting.

Cepat2 pegi jumpa doktor if u think u had an infection and u’re belongs to any of these groups:

  • You have a fever, nausea and vomiting, or pain in one side of your back under your ribs.
  • You have diabetes, kidney problems, or a weak immune system.
  • You are older than 65.
  • You are pregnant.

Please take note that u might not be having all of the symptoms. Macam in my case, takde pun rasa sakit bila urinate, but I commonly have mild fever during late afternoon dengan rasa sakit kat belakang.

How to prevent it?

  • Urinate when you need to. Don’t hold it. Pass urine before and after sex. After you pass urine or have a bowel movement (BM), wipe from front to back.
  • Drink water every day and after sex. Try for 6 to 8 glasses a day.
  • Clean the outer lips of your vagina and anus each day. The anus is the place where a bowel movement leaves your body, located between the buttocks.
  • Don’t use douches or feminine hygiene sprays.
  • If you get a lot of UTIs and use spermicides, or creams that kill sperm, talk to your doctor about using other forms of birth control.
  • Wear underpants with a cotton crotch. Don’t wear tight-fitting pants, which can trap in moisture.
  • Take showers instead of tub baths.

Home remedies

  • Drink lots of water. At least 2L per day
  • Drink cranberry juice. But not the one with lots of sugar (yang banyak jual kat Tesco, Jusco tu). Get the pure juice. I used to buy from GNC. Tapi rasa dia masamm… cranberyy
  • Mix 10 drops of tea tree oil into water. Use that to clean up your vagina.
  • Pineapple. At least a cupfull. Makan raw or buat juice.
  • Apple cider vinegar. Add 2 or 3 teaspoon of it to a glass of water and mix with 1 teaspoon of honey. Drink the mixture 3 times a day.

Well, that’s all of it. Adios
