24 years old male from Aurangabad asked
I have pain in anal cavity. Sometimes it bleeds to. Yesterday I have swelling around anus so can it be cancer of anus.
It is piles. The first home treatment for piles that is highly recommended is ice. Ice will help constrict the blood vessels, reduce swelling and give you immediate pain relief. â¢Apply an icepack or a partially melted piece of ice wrapped in a cloth directly on the affected area for about 10 minutes. Do this several times a day until the hemorrhoid goes away. â¢You can even use a small pack of frozen vegetables such as peas or corn. Wrap the pack in a tea towel and then apply it on the hemorrhoid. Do this for 20 minutes at a time, three times a day. Take Nux vom 30 â twice daily for next 10 days and report back for further treatment.
23 years old male from Hyderabad asked
Hi I have gerd gastro esophageal reflux disease. I am using Nerpro 20 mg. Recently it is not giving me the relief. Can I use nexpro 40 mg. My age: 23 Weight: 95.
Yes you can increase, make sure you are taking it empty stomach about 45 before breakfast. However the most important thing is your weight (93) and BMI which is 38. You are Morbidly obese and too young (23 yr). Better to consult Gastroentrologist for dietary, Endoscopic or rarely Surgical management for weight reduction urgently for risk free life ahead. Trust me weight reduction will cure your GERD. Best of luck!
61 years old male from Noida asked
Hi, I have digestion problem. If I take lunch, I don't feel hungry until dinner. Can you prescribe some food items which increase my hunger. My age is 60 and weight is 100 kg.
Hello Mr. lybrate-user, try low calories small frequent diet. More of fibres and roughage. This will decrease your weight and in turn increase appetite. Before trying fibres make sure that bloating is not the reason for these symptoms as fibre can increases these symptom. Please avoid overeating of high calorie diet as it can further increase your weight. Your BMI is 34, which means obesity. Your should look for decreasing weight which is possible. Take opinion of Gastroentrologist if everything fails.

I would like to know how can I solve my Acidity problem, I stay away from home for job purpose and have to eat outside.
Hello lybrate-user, though it's difficult for you but avoid spicy, fatty and roadside cold food. Drink clean water and if possible carry clean water during travel. Some times due to wrong food habits persistent infection occurs in stomach and cause chronic symptoms. In such case consult your doctor.

46 years old female from Mumbai asked
He's having anal fissure since past many months. Taking laxative. But no relief. Anus passage became narrow .pl help. Feeling discomfort becoz of it. Allergic rhinitis has become chronic pl help.
Anal fissure generally respond well to treatment like laxatives, sitting in warm water, local ointment to relax the anal sphincters. If anal fissure persists then surgery is needed. However before surgery your doctor needs to see type of anal fissure as multiple fissure are associated with other diseases which are to be excluded.

34 years old female from Hyderabad asked
Hello doctor, I am using mirtazapine from past 1 year for IBS-C. Now my course is about to stop as I am feeling good. Now I am using mirtazapine 7.5 (60 mg- 45 mg-30 mg-15 mg-7.5 mg) from last month. In 15 days I have to stop the medicine. But now I am getting constipation and severe headaches with gastric disturbances. My question is" Is it medicine withdrawn side effects or do I need to increase my dose again? Please let me know. Thanks in advance.
Hi. In my opinion mirtazapine is an antidepressant. It may or may not help in IBS. I never prescribe it for IBS. Your symptoms as you told may be related to drug withdrawal. Regarding stopping the drug you should consult the doctor who advised it. For IBS I can help you with few medications and lifestyle changes. Avoid unnecessary stress and anxiety. Sleep properly, drink adequate water. Avoid spicy oily and outside food. No smoking/alcohol/tobacco etc. Eat more of green vegetables and fruits. Avoid heavy dinner. For medications you can consult me online. Thanks.

HI Gas normally enters your digestive tract when you swallow air and when bacteria in your large intestine break down certain undigested foods. Everyone swallows a small amount of air when eating and drinking. You swallow more air when you, chew gum, drink carbonated, or fizzy, drinks, eat or drink too fast, smoke,suck on hard candy, wear loose-fitting dentures. Some conditions can cause you to have more gas than usual or have more symptoms when you have gas. These conditions include the following: Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) steps to swallow less air. For example, eat more slowly, avoid gum and hard candies, and donât use a straw. If you smoke, quit smoking. You may try avoiding or limiting, carbonated, or fizzy, drinks, fried and high-fat foods, high-fiber foods for a few weeks and then slowly increasing your daily fiber intake. For any further query and treatment you can contact me through Lybrate.
