Is it possible to get fart from mouth? Or any chances are there? My friend is 11 years old he told me he is feeling like this!

MD
General Physician, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, This feeling of your friend is not called farting it is referred to as burping, benching or dyspepsia. It can be normal phenomenon after having a meal or can be related to some pathology. Your friend can try some hot water after a meal for digestion and avoid skipping meals and do regular exercise. If not relieved should take some medication after consulting a registered practitioner.

What is the treatment of acute pancreatitis? How fair its prognosis? How much time the treatment takes to cure?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Patients with severe acute pancreatitis require intensive care. Within hours to days, a number of complications (eg, shock, pulmonary failure, renal failure, gastrointestinal [gi] bleeding, or multiorgan system failure) may develop. The goals of medical management are to provide aggressive supportive care, to decrease inflammation, to limit infection or superinfection, and to identify and treat complications as appropriate. Autoimmune pancreatitis is a rare condition. Corticosteroids should not be used to treat this condition in the short term in patients who are suspected of having autoimmune pancreatitis and who present with acute pancreatitis.

Hi. You need to follow continuously few management as well as home care tips to avoid formation of black or white heads. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium can worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: 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. Also, use Bakson’s Apricot scrub 1-2times a week on the area.

I have gerd with barrettes oesophagus. For the last one month I am having a burning sensation in my stomach always. It stays in the stomach. It does not come up to chest. Is it due to gerd? It's not intense. But a feeling. It stays for few seconds then goes. Again it comes. It continues like this. I take neksium 40 once daily.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), Certified in Evidence Based Diabetes Management, MNAMS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
Thank you for the query. GERD as you may be knowing causes symptoms like heartburn and acidic taste in the mouth. Since you already have Barrett's oesophagus (abnormal change in the cells of the lower portion of the esophagus), an Endoscopic surveillance at routine intervals is advisable. A burning sensation/discomfort localised in the abdomen, may be due to an associated gastritis/duodenitis. You continue with the es-omeprazole as prescribed. Avoid painkillers like Diclofenac and Ibuprofen as they can aggravate the symptoms. I would suggest you to visit your physician/gastroenterologist for a repeat endoscopy. Sucralfate suspension before meals my be helpful. Regards.
