Problem of acidity is a tendency in which your stomach starts to produce more acid than required for the digestions of your food. In such a case when there is irregularity in the timings of the meal or there is intake of spicy and oily food items then there is production of even more acid. In such a situation only by the help of medicines it is difficult to achieve relief. A balance should also be made between type of diet, Regular timings of diet and good healthy lifestyle with emphasis on proper sleep. For diet - Fruits are especially recommended because they have an excellent role in prevention of acidity.

Ulcerative colitis is usually only in the innermost lining of the large intestine (colon) and rectum. Forms range from mild to severe. Having ulcerative colitis puts a patient at increased risk of developing colon cancer. Symptoms include rectal bleeding, bloody diarrhoea, abdominal cramps and pain. Homoeo medicines can cure such condition.

I have a severe condition of fissures. And what you call in layman terms as modes on the outside of the anal opening. Doctors recommending surgery. I am working and mother of two. In case of surgery which are the best options in Mumbai and the best places o get it done. Also, what is the recovery time of these surgeries and approximate cost of the procedure.

FMAS, MS
General Surgeon, Gandhinagar
Respected lybrate-user hi surgery for fissure is called lord's dilatation in which painful spasm of anal sphincter is relieved under general anaesthesia may be costing around 7-8 thousands in average set up. Recovery in 3-4 days. Another surgery is fissurectomy in which excision of fissure in advance stage takes 20-25 days of recovery (painful) may be costing 18-20 thousands in average set up. I clearly tell you that there are all the chances of getting fissure again even after surgery with best doctor of mumbai whenever you will get hard stool so take surgery decision as last resort when you r not getting any relief by medicines thanks regards welcome for any queries.

Fresh ginger juice (1 tsp) + lemon juice (1tsp) + sauph powder (1tsp) - mix this in one liter of boiled and cooled water. Drink this water everyday, and you gas trouble will vanish it no time. You need not drink 1 liter of water at a stretch. Have one cup every now and then. But make sure you finish the 1 liter of water in 245 hours.

I had a problem of anal fissure from past 2 years, but blood comes in my stool only when I do Exercises or Gym or I am confused when I have bananas also blood comes in my stool.

General Surgeon, Pune
Is there burning sensation also before or after passing stool? Do you have constipation since long time time? I would advise high fiber diet with plenty of oral fluids. Green vegetables and fruit and alteast 4 lit of water. Sit in warm water with a few drops of dettol put it in it. Relax and tighten your sphincter alternately for alteast 10 times each session for 15 mins alteast thrice a day. Regards. After clinical examination from a general surgeon, you can ask about stool softer medication, pain killer and sphincter relaxing ointment etc.

Hello, You have asked many questions together! Let me answer one by one: For pimples: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days. For Gas Formation: Take Natrum Phos. 6x/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr. after meals. Diet for Gas formation: Foods most often linked to intestinal gas include: Beans and lentils Asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and other vegetables Fructose, a natural sugar found in artichokes, onions, pears, wheat, and some soft drinks Lactose, the natural sugar found in milk Fruits, oat bran, peas, and other foods high in soluble fiber, which gets digested in your large intestine Corn, pasta, potatoes, and other foods rich in starch Sorbitol, the artificial sweetener Whole grains, such as brown rice, oatmeal, and whole wheat That list covers a whole lot of healthy food, but you don’t have to severely restrict your diet. For Hairloss: Take homoeopathic Rx - Schwabe's Wiesbaden 200 & Alfalfa Tonic twice a day for 1 month and revert. Also, use Schwabe's Arnica shampoo and Hair Growth oil regularly as per the condition of your scalp (minimum 3 times a week). After shampooing, use Bakson's Arnica Hair conditioner as well after every head wash. Apart from this, take Follihair tablets (multivitamin) - 1 tab. daily once for 1 month. (N.B.: With the help of homoeopathic medicines, we can only prevent further progress of the hairloss, means it will get arrests in the present condition in case of progressive baldness. But, in case there are areas of baldness which has gone smooth and shiny, you will have to choose an option of Hair Transplant along with theses medications!). Investigations advised: Get your blood tested for (empty stomach) - CBC, S. Iron, S. Folic acid, S. Ferritin, S. Calcium, S. Vitamin D3, S. Vitamin B12. If there is any family history of Thyroid dysfunction, get Thyroid function test done as well.

Hello lybrate-user ji, accourding to concept constipation is the main cause for rectal bleeding but some time some people may inherit a weakness of the wall of the veins in the anal region and the tissues in the lining of the anus may become less supportive as we get older. That's why this symptom are developed. You avoid spicy food and junk food.

Crohn's Disease - Causes, Types and Symptoms!

Crohn's Disease - Causes, Types and Symptoms!

One of the most severe illnesses included in the larger group of diseases, is known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Crohn's disease is typically a long-lasting, chronic condition. The intestine or bowel, most commonly the colon and the lower part of the small intestine, are either marked by sores or get inflamed and ulcerated. It is a common occurrence in adolescents and in young adults. 

Types : Crohn's disease is subdivided into five types, each having its own set of symptoms:

  1. Ileocolitis: The most common type, it affects the colon and the ileum and results in considerable weight loss as well as diarrhea and cramps.
  2. Gastroduodenal Crohn's disease: People who suffer from this type of disease have their stomach and duodenum affected and many experience symptoms like nausea, loss of appetite and weight loss.
  3. Crohn's Colitis: This involves only the stomach, and can cause joint pains, rectal bleeding, skin lesions and diarrheas. 
  4. Ileitis: This type of Crohn's disease affects the ileum and the symptoms are identical to those of ileocolitis.
  5. Jejunoileitis: In this type, the jejunum gets affected and general symptoms include the formation of fistulas, diarrhea, intensive back pain as well as areas of inflammation.

Causes: Although there are many theories about what causes Crohn's disease, none of them have been proven. However, there have been a few possible causes which have been identified. These include:

  1. Immune system problems
  2. Genetic disorders
  3. Environmental factors, such as: a) Certain edibles, b) Viruses or harmful bacteria, c) Smoke.

Symptoms: The primary symptoms of Crohn's disease include the following:

  1. Diarrhea: Diarrhea is a common problem for people with Crohn's disease and can occur for about 10 to 20 times a day in severe cases.
  2. Blood in your stool: In rare cases, you might notice blood in the toilet bowl or darker blood mixed with your stool.
  3. Fever and fatigue: In more intense cases, you may develop a fever. You may also feel tired or have low energy.
  4. Abdominal pain and cramping: You may experience anything from slight discomfort to severe cramping and intermittent belly pain, including nausea and vomiting.
  5. Anemia: Due to a reduction in iron level caused by bloody stools a person can turn anemic.
  6. Reduced appetite and weight loss: Abdominal pain and cramping can affect both your appetite and your ability to digest food, which leads to severe weight loss.
  7. Perianal disease: Erratic appearance of small tears in the anus are called anal fissures. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gastroenterologist.
