I am a 40 year old male. I am suffering from boils in my anus for a year now. It heals automatically after one week or so, but keeps coming back after two months so in the same area, a few centimeters away fro the first one. It is very painful and effects my bowel movements. The local Doctor prescribed antibiotics but seems have no affect. What should I do?

Recurrent anal boils is to be investigated further. I advise you to take medicated sitz bath (sitting in lukewarm tub of water for 10-15 min three-four times daily) please consult a doctor for thorough investigation.

Gallstone problem for my mother age of 55 years. ultrasonography report is - gall bladder is contracted, thickened walls with multiple echogenic foci seen in lumen measuring 0.41 cm-0.47 cm with strong acoustic shadowing, cholecystitis with cholelithiasis, pericholcystic area is normal. What does it mean what should I do. Please help.

Bariatrician, Mumbai
Hi. She will need laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Gallbladder is thickened in both chronic infection as well as cancer. She will need anyways surgery for removal of gallbladder. Post surgery biopsy report will confirm the final diagnosis. Don't worry mostly 99 percent it is diseased gallbladder rather than cancer. We have lot of experience in gallbladder surgery.

Hello lybrate user, - there might be both muscle and lower back bone involvement, need to avoid heavy lifting works for few days - such heavy lifts may lead to muscle contraction - apply ksheerabala taila daily before bath - take yogaraja guggulu 2-0-2 this will avoid present pain. - heavy lifts, bending exercises need to stop for few days bcz it may lead to slip disc kind of issues. Thank you.

There are so many reasons of bleeding per rectum, most common is bacillary disentary, piles. If you have disentary take antibiotics under the guidance of a doctor, and if you don't have this again consult a doctor.
