Accessing Doctors Remotely

There seems to be an ever-growing amount of people who chose not to go to the doctors when they are sick or in pain, but why? There are many reasons why some individuals choose to skip the surgery and here are just a few of them. Do you fall into any of the categories? *

I don't have the time to go to the doctors - this is such a valid reason. We have all been there, when we make an appointment to see the doctor in our lunch break so that we don't have to take time off unpaid or make up for it at another time. We turn up to the surgery to find a mayhem of queues and disorganised staff, and even though we are 5 minutes early to the appointment, we sit around for 10 minutes, and then 20 minutes and eventually we are called in half an hour late. However when we are called in to our appointment we are rushed out the door, all after we have just waited for other patients who have clearly broken the one appointment for one problem rule! Not to mention after a trip to the pharmacy to collect the prescriptions, are now late back to work! Nursing Times published a great article on this matter. *

I'm worried the doctor will laugh at me - Although this would never ever be the case, and if it were that doctor should be disciplined; going to the doctor can be very nerve wracking. I know personally if I go to the doctors about a sore throat I make sure to put on my most frog like voice and cough every 10 seconds just to prove that I am actually sick. There is no need, doctors know that symptoms aren't constant, however this does still put a lot of people off. * Read More...

Genital Warts

What are genital warts and how do you get it:

Warts are primarily little bumps of flesh that appear on different parts of the body. Many warts appear in areas where the skin is loose and can be stretched like the neck. Many studies also reveal that warts generally appear after a certain age and are linked to diet, lifestyle and fitness. One of the most embarrassing times is when you notice warts in your genital areas like the vagina or penis. Warts in general are derivative of the same virus called HPV. Genital warts appear mostly due to unprotected sex but there are cases where people have discovered warts in their genital areas despite having protected sex.

genital warts do not appear immediately after having unprotected sex with a person who is already infected with the HPV virus. In many cases, it takes weeks, months and rarely even years before you may notice genital warts on your body. The reason for this delayed time frame is simple – your body’s immune system. The moment our body’s immune system gets low, the virus gets the upper hand.

Why can genital warts treatment become embarrassing?

Like all health related issues, genital warts too can be treated however as adults, the embarrassment is more to do with the mind than anything else. It is never easy and far from comfortable to approach a medical specialist when a health issue has to do with your private parts. Not only does the communication become a little uncomfortable, the expression and questions you may have could hinder you from all clarification you may deserve. Over the counter medications are available but trying to tell a pharmacist about how bad the situation is could be even worse. The good news is that the treatment for genital warts is available on the internet in abundance where people can directly contact a prescribing doctor. Private healthcare companies companies are fully aware of the discomfort the patients go through psychologically when they are approached for help. They dispatch medicines without the name of their company and also ensure complete privacy and discretion are paramount. Read More...

The late detection of any medical condition can severely affect your chances of being completely treated of that condition. Many people are suffering from medical conditions and they might be aware of it because of the symptoms but they do not get tested, either because they do not want to spend the time or money to go to a clinic or because they are too afraid or ashamed of getting tested for a specific condition in the presence of others. Home testing kits provide such individuals with an easy, affordable, convenient, confortable and secure way of getting tested. 

The Issues with Home Testing Kits
