Hi Thanks for the query Blood in lantrine could be due to dysentery, haemorrhoids or anal fissure. If it is not mixed with stool, then it could be due to anal fissure or piles. So you have to meet near by local General surgeon, doctor will do examination with proctoscopy for the diagnosis. Sit over hot water in a tub Drink plenty of water Avoid oily and outside food Have easily digestible food You may take duphalac solution to smoothen your stool Have food rich in fibre Have probiotics supplement If it is painful you can use xylocaine gel 2% to the anal area I hope I have cleared your query to an extent Take care Regards

Fatty liver is the deposition of excessive fat in the liver and it may be asymptomatic mostly. usually there is no treatment for the same except making some dietary modifications and excercise which may relieve it. Homoeopathy offers good solution for the same . Its done after identifying the cause of this condition by studying the body and the mind of the patient which is genetically determined. if you are interested opt for a homoeopathic consultation. usually fatty livers wont cause a problem but some cases may go for liver damage and cirrhosis

As of now it seems to be due to the intake of medication and for your main problem I will suggest you to take tablet folvite 5 mg twice a day for a month and than once a day for another six months and better to stop hormonal tablets after this period and to do daily exercises and revert back to me after six months

My uncle suffering from peptic ulcer so please suggest me what should I do for my uncle, i am in Very confusion please suggest me.

MD
General Physician, Delhi
Peptic ulcer develops due to imbalance between the defensive factors (mucus and bicarbonate) and aggressive factors (stomach acid). The drug treatment of peptic ulcer includes the use of proton pump inhibitors which are to be taken one hour before breakfast once daily for a period of 4-6 weeks. These drugs not only suppress the acid production but also promote the healing of the ulcer. If the peptic ulcer is caused by a bacteria helicobacter pylori, then you must take two weeks course of antibiotics (amoxycillin, clarithromycin, tinidazole) along with proton pump inhibitors. X 15 days you must avoid the following: alcohol, smoking, coffee, nsaid pain killers, stress, hot and spicy foods, etc.

Acidity causes also heart pain, take regularly antacid twice daily. But at the same time diet restriction must follow ie no rich, spicy, oily, fry foods to be taken.

I am 28 years old, a few months before I noticed few blood drops while passing stolen. And it was not continuously seen, but at that time the climate was too hot in Dubai. After a few days gap or after a week again it use to come, as there was no further pain or any sort of irritation at all. After that I used to drink plenty of water and it got disappeared. And presently there is no such issues. So can I have a proper advice please in which I have to do next.

if its not coming presently then don't worry ..if the blood is fresh red in color and comes occasionally then get colonoscopy done by gastroenterologist to rule out intestinal pathology
