Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction or ED for short is also known as sexual impotence and is a common sexual health issue experienced by many men between the age of 40 to 70 years of age.

Though the risk of experiencing erectile dysfunction increases with age, it is still possible for younger men to experience it.

Also, having this issue can be stressful and frustrating, and even leave a negative impact on a man’s self-confidence and self-esteem.

What are the Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction?

When a man is aroused or having sexual intercourse, the brain will send signals to the nerves in his reproductive organ, which increases blood flow to the penis.

However, erectile dysfunction happens when there is limited blood flow in the penis, which causes it to be unable to erect or keep erect.

Loss of sensitivity in the penis can also cause erectile dysfunction and make it more difficult for a man to reach orgasm during sex.

Another common symptom of erectile dysfunction is reduced sexual desire, which can affect relationships and lead to unfulfilling sex life.

Possible Factors that Can Contribute to Erectile Dysfunction

Lifestyle and health can influence a man’s sexual well-being and there are several possible factors that can increase the risk of experiencing erectile dysfunction.

Some of these factors include:

  • Medications (antidepressants, anti-histamines, certain painkillers etc)
  • Health problems (heart problems, diabetes)
  • Drug abuse
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Mental health (stress, depression, anxiety)
  • Internal injuries (damaged nerves)
  • Medical treatments

Types of acne:

When we are talking about acne, the thing that bothers us most are the pesky spots. Some are just unsightly while others may also be painful.

1. Whiteheads
These are tiny firm bumps that are painless. These occur due to overproduction of Sebum (oil production).

2. Blackheads
If the whiteheads progress to get exposed to air and get oxidized, than the whiteheads will progress to become blackheads. Blackheads are difficult to treat, but the good news is technology in skincare has progressed so far that this issue is easily solvable.

3. Papules
These are small red bumps that may feel tender due to inflammation

4. Pustules
Similar to Papules but these lesions are infected and therefore contain pus in the centre. Pustules are also tender to touch.

5. Nodules
Nodules are large, painful hard lumps that develop beneath the surface of the skin.

6. Cyst
These are large, sebaceous filled lesions that are usually encapsulated by a wall. Medication may reduce the symptoms and recurrence of infection. Excision of the cyst intact with the “Wall” is the only way to totally remove it.

 

Why does acne occur?

Are you tired of pimples popping out on a daily basis? Does acne make you feel shy and depressed? Do you feel you are missing out on living your life to the fullest because of Acne? Is Acne ruining your social life? Have you spent thousands and thousands on skincare but still suffering from acne? Do you feel that you have to live with acne for the rest of your life? This stage of acne is the most painful not only physically but also mentally. Many teens and even some adults suffer from acne breakouts that just sprout and grow despite a whole cupboard full of skincare and advise from well-meaning family and friends. Jumping from one skincare to the next also doesn’t help. Because not all Acne can be resolved the same way, it is important to seek professional advise and get onto the right track for effective healing.

The main cause for acne boils down to 2 main causes.

1. Increased sebum production – oily skin.

2. Bacteria – mainly p.acne which lead to formation of inflammation, infection and pus formation.

The causes for the increase in sebum production could be purely hormonal but may also be hereditary, related to lifestyle and diet or the use of wrong products.

 

The topic of products will be further discussed as it is something we can all do to prevent acne breakouts and save some money in the process.

1. Cleanser
Depending on skin types the most suitable cleanser can be a mild neutral cleanser to something a bit stronger with Salicylic acid, AHA, BHA or fruit enzymes. The idea would be to be able to clean out dirt and grime without over-drying or irritating our skin.

2. Exfoliator
We are sometimes tempted to use an Exfoliator in the quest for smooth blemish-free skin. However, some Exfoliators may be too harsh for inflamed, infected skin. Used too often it will also dry out and strip our natural protective layer of the skin and in turn, our skin reacts by producing more oil which is counter productive in the treatment of acne. A gentle Exfoliator may be used once a week safely.

3. Toner
Use an alcohol-free toner to gently cleanse off any residual cleanser and prep skin for the subsequent skincare. Some toners also have soothing and pore refining ingredients.

4. Serum and moisturisers
The difference between serums and moisturizers is the consistency of the product. Serums are more liquid-based while moisturizers are usually cream-based. However many water-based moisturizers are now available to moisturize without the oiliness. The important part to note be it serums or moisturizers is to use non-comedogenic products meaning that the product will not block pores. For oily skin, look out for products that are *oil-free * non-comedogenic *water-based products that aim to provide mild moisturization ( if needed) without clogging pores or adding on to oil production.

5. Sunblock
This is also an important step due to our tropical climate. It is important to use a non-comedogenic sunblock as well and sometimes in very severe acne this step may even be skipped for awhile till proper oil control is in place. Proper use of sunblock will go a long way to prevent unsightly spots and pigmentation left after active acne dries out.

6. Makeup and foundation
As far as possible, it is advised to omit makeup and thick makeup that clogs pores and may aggravate acne. It may be difficult but the long term idea is to heal your skin so that you will not need to cover up your beautiful skin with tonnes of concealer, foundation, and makeup. If makeup is a Must due to occupation etc, use non-comedogenic foundations, replace makeup brushes/cushions often and always ensure all traces are cleansed and removed properly before sleeping.

7. Prescription creams
Prescription creams may also be prescribed to aid in the healing of acne breakouts and the lightening of acne marks. Always start with the lowest strength of prescription creams and work your way up to prevent over-drying, skin irritations or other unwanted side effects. It is advisable to get these prescriptions from a professional and trained doctor.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Therapy Options That Are Available in Malaysia

If you are experiencing erectile dysfunction, there is no harm in consulting a doctor or specialist about your concern.

Rest assured that ED is treatable and in most cases can be cured with the help of right treatment and therapy.

There are several therapies and permanent treatments for erectile dysfunction available today, and they are:

Phosphodiesterase-5 Inhibitors

Phosphodiesterase-5 Inhibitors or PDE5 are oral medications such as sildenafil, vardenafil, tadalafil, and avanafil, which are taken to help reverse erectile dysfunction.

They work by enhancing the effects of nitric oxide in the body which is a natural chemical that relaxes the muscles in the penis and increases blood flow, leading to an erection.

Alprostadil

A prescription medication used topically, alprostadil works as a treatment for erectile dysfunction by increasing blood flow throughout the body, including in the penis, which will result in an erection.

Intracavernosal Injection

Another common treatment for erectile dysfunction is intracavernosal injection therapy Or ICI therapy, which works by injecting medication directly into the penis to increase blood flow.

This will then induce an involuntary erection.

Intraurethral Therapy

In intraurethral therapy or IU, a tiny medical pellet known as Alprostadil is placed in the urethra, which is the tube through which urine is carried and leaves the body.

This is an alternative to getting an injection directly into the penis.

The medication works the same way in treating erectile dysfunction, whereby it stimulates blood flow in the penis, which results in an erection.

My first time here was in 2015 (until now). And that time my skin was really really bad. Dr. Dinesh has helped me so much with my skin. I was having depression during that time, and he was being very helpful and he always tries his best to help me. The staffs are also very friendly and nice. Without a doubt, please come here! They are very professional ? You will feel like home. That’s what matters the most (well at least for me) ?
