A New Way to Avoid an Embarrassing Male Sexual Problem?

Posted 15 May 2017 by Drugs.com

MONDAY, May 15, 2017 – Men troubled by the embarrassment of premature ejaculation might soon have an easy way to avoid it, new research suggests. Special "wipes" embedded with a mild anesthetic – benzocaine – appear to help reduce premature ejaculation, a small new study has found. According to the American Urological Association (AUA), premature ejaculation is the most common form of male sexual dysfunction, affecting about one in three men aged 18 to 59. Currently, drug treatments for premature ejaculation in the United States are limited to creams or sprays, the AUA said. "Premature ejaculation means ejaculation in less than 2 minutes after penetration," explained one urologist, Dr. David Samadi. He's chief of urology at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. While benzocaine and other anesthetics have been used before to treat the condition, their use in a bedside wipe is new, he ... Read more

Eat plenty of fruit (such as prunes) and vegetables. Eat bran cereals. Take a fiber supplement. Get regular exercise.

Teething Tips From Dental Specialists

Posted 9 Dec 2016 by Drugs.com

Friday, Dec. 9, 2016 – You've fed your baby, changed your baby, but the baby is still cranky. It's possible he or she is uncomfortable because tiny teeth are trying to push through the gums. What can you do to ease the pain? One approach is to offer a plain, solid teething ring, which lets the baby apply pressure to ease the pain. While chilling the teething ring may provide added relief, don't freeze it because the extreme cold can be harmful rather than soothing, dental experts say. "Your child's gums can be sensitive during this time, and your child will know how much pressure they should apply to try and relieve the pain. They're their best teacher and, in this instance, know what they need," said Dr. William Wathen, associate professor at Texas A&M University's College of Dentistry. Massaging a baby's gums with a clean finger or a cooled washcloth is also soothing. If you've ... Read more
