Well you have two problems1. Gas problem,- for this you must avoid fried and spicy food. Take 6 small meals instead of 3 major meals. Take plenty of water. One of your meals should be fruits. Slowly with draw the said medicine. If the problem recurs, take consultation with a gastroenterologist to rule out h pylori infection. For your second problem,- you must maintain good hygiene at the anal area. Wash it with plenty of water twice daily. Avoid constipation or loose stools. Take isafgole 3tsf with a glass of water daily as one of your meals (out of 6). Do a stool examination. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are having gastritis. The first and foremost treatment of which is life style modification like regular exercise, diet modification as advised and liberal fluid intake. Try having small frequent meals, avoid tea/coffee/carbonated drinks, avoid chilli, stop smoking and consuming alcohol if you do. Hope this solves your query. Try with these life style measures first. If any concern then feel free to contact we will then discuss and start you on medication if needed as every one has a different requirement of medicine.

Apart from hyperacidity the pain could also be due to Amoebic infection. So along with the antacid tablets take anti amoebicidal under medical guidance for 5 - 10 days depending up on the severity. As you have uti als you require urinarty antiseptics with medical consultaion. Take plenty of water for relief of both acidity and uti. Maintain proper personal hygiene of the genitals after urination and after passing of motion. Avoid outside food. For somereason if you had to take outside take very hot stuff like hot rice, hot idli, hot dosa etc. Do not take junk food. Come back for further guidance. Good luck.

Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress,take plenty of water in day time. And 1 glass of water before bed at night. use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .

My daughter is 3 and half years old and while running and sometime in night complaints pain in the abdomen. Shown to few doctors earlier, who diagnosed it with worms however, it work for some days and again after 15-20 days daughter says Pain. Keep on happening from last 3 months now. Pain comes for 2-4 mins and then goes off. What should I do?

For the treatment of worm infestation-Washing one’s hands thoroughly with soap and water before a meal should be done even if the child uses a spoon, knife and fork for eating. Teach your child to wash his hands thoroughly after going to the toilet. Food should be eaten the same day it is cooked. Even if reheated. Take care to reheat properly. Mebendazole or albendazole is used for the treatment. If required treatment can be repeated after 2 weeks. Hope this answer helped you.
