Worm infestation is the commonest cause of itching around the anus. Physical and nutritional hygiene is useful. Take lot of green vegetables & plenty of fluids. Avoid chillies & spices. Tablet zentel may be taken (single dose) once every 15 days for 2-3 months. Local application of non medicated sooting cream (eg nivea or ponds etc) may be applied 2-3 times a day.

You can take Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables more plenty of water: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, for ibs:-you cut out such items as carbonated beverages, vegetables — especially cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower — and raw fruits.Fiber supplements. Taking fiber supplements, such as psyllium (Metamucil) or methylcellulose (Citrucel), with fluids may help control constipation. Fiber obtained from food may cause much more bloating compared with a fiber supplement.

Hello lybrate-user, it may displease you to know that once a stone is formed and subsequently removed, there is always a chance of recurrence of stone formation as compared to a person without any history of stones. Such patients may be termed as recurrent stone formers, you should visit a urology or general surgery opd for the same, an ultrasound will be more than sufficient to detect any stones in the system. Moreover you should drink lots of water so that you pelvicalyceal system remains adequately flushed.
