If you've ever had an abscess on your skin, gums, or elsewhere on (or in) your body, you know how dangerous and painful it can be. And because an abscess can resemble a pimple or a boil, you might be tempted to squeeze or pop it. But before you do, read this article to learn how to deal with an abscess safely, and why you should never pop one yourself.
Tinnitus is an unwelcome intruder that can disrupt your day with a continuous, high-pitched ringing in your ears. This is not just annoying; phantom sounds can interfere with your concentration, sleep patterns, and overall quality of life.
Mental health is a topic many of us still shy away from discussing openly. However, according to some studies, as many as 1 in 4 people worldwide may be living with some form of mental illness at any given time. In this article, we shed some light on bipolar disorder and what it’s like to live with it.
While it may seem alarming, this phenomenon is probably more common than you think. Have you ever spontaneously felt a sensation like a zap, a jolt, or a tingle out of the blue? Such sensations are more common during perimenopause when fluctuating hormone levels can influence the way our nerves fire, but this phenomenon can have many other causes.
Apart from the ever-present question of whether to shave, the armpit is not the first place we think of as being a source of pain. However, the armpit—or axilla—is an important junction where the arm meets the rest of the body, and pain can arise here.
Our sense of smell is important for our health and well-being. It helps us select wholesome food, heightens the appetite, and warns us of harmful or spoiled products. Our ability to perceive smells also helps us navigate the environment, warning us about dangers such as a gas leak, smoke and fire, or mildew in the walls. But our sense of smell gives us even more subtle and profound cues that influence our romantic relationships, social interactions, and attitudes towards other people.
A urinary tract infection or UTI is a bacterial infection usually caused by gastroin-testinal bacteria that has travelled from the anal tract to the urinary tract. The condition is uncomfortable and painful, and, if left untreated, can lead to kidney damage.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a group of symptoms, or “syndrome”, that affects the ovaries and ovulation. It is common in women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS produce higher-than-normal levels of androgens (male hormones). This hormone imbalance disturbs the menstrual cycle—infrequent or prolonged periods; and the ovaries may develop numerous follicles (small sacs of fluid that produce hormones and influence fertility) and fail to release eggs regularly, which makes it difficult to get pregnant. An accurate and early diagnosis makes it easier to get the proper treatment to manage symptoms.
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a pathogen that, in the absence of treatment, results in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition that undermines the body’s natural defense systems, rendering it vulnerable to disease.

Sex is so much more than just the “big O”. The whole experience—foreplay, making love, and afterglow—has the potential to be uniquely pleasurable. Of course, orgasms are amazing, but for some of us the build-up of intense arousal can also bring on an intense headache.
Most men will attest that the male member can be unpredictable. Losing erection during sex from time to time is very normal. We talk about erectile dysfunction or ED when a person consistently has trouble achieving and maintaining an erection.
The reasons behind our sometimes surreal, vivid, and emotional dreams have long been a mystery. Many people who menstruate report having odd, striking dreams right before menstruation. The reasons behind this phenomenon are hidden in our hormones.
The sexual needs of people who live with disabilities are the same as everyone else’s but overcoming the stigma and gaining access to basic sexual-health-related information and services is much more challenging for them. Those with disabilities are still disproportionately underserved when it comes to sexual education and resources, both as adolescents and later in life. In this article, we discuss how to make information about sexual health more accessible for everyone, regardless of our physical or mental capabilities.
Reproductive-age women experience a menstrual cycle roughly every month. This cyclical process is connected to all the other systems that keep our bodies running and support our capacity for reproduction. The menstrual cycle is sensitive to the other changes that occur in our lives—environmental, emotional, or other.
The human body is naturally covered in hair and still we have a long history of going to great lengths to remove it. Contrary to some beliefs, body hair removal serves a purely aesthetic purpose. This makes the choice to leave it there or get rid of it up to you.
