Hii. It's a anal fissure with a sentinel pile. It will time to heal. First thing is to control your constipation. Take some laxative. Avoid straining during motion. You can use topical local anaesthetic along with a muscle relaxant. Do regular sitz bath.

It is not acidity rather its a misnomer actual term is hyperacidity since there is already acid present normally in the stomach and it is necessary for normal digestion, but when abnormally increased which can lead to burning sensation in stomach (heart burn) eructations gastric/peptic ulcers and is also called as" hurry curry worry syndrome" avoid hurried lifestyle, take balanced diet of non-chilly type, and avoid tension. Addictions must be avoided. For time being you can have rx tab rantac 150 mg syp mucaine gel twice daily for 3 to 5 days. Regards.

I am kumar, male, aged about 56 years and residing in chennai. I am suffering with digestive disorders such as lack of appetite, indigestion, severe underweight, malnutrition, slight watery stools, rapid graying of scalp and facial hair, eczema on face, constipation, and a feeling of heaviness in the stomach. I had undergone endoscopy 4 times and colonoscopy once and RUT test. Nothing was revealed except gastritis, IBS, non specific proctocolitis and GERD. I had undergone stool tests on 4 0ccasions but only once giardia lamblia was detected. Even stool culture test did not reveal anything. Is there any test to determine nature of microbiota in the intestine. I am severely under nourished and underweight. I do not feel like taking food. One gastro doctor at chennai suggest for cat scan of abdomen. I am afraid to undergo this test as I am scared of exposure to radiation. Can any one suggest some good probiotics and probiotics to cure this nuisance disease permanently. Will chronic giardiasis of long duration cause cancer? Can any good doctor advice me a good and permanent cure. Thanking you,

Lower abdominal pain can be due to pelvic inflammatory disease, dysmenorrhoea ,cystitis or intestinal infection. Please check the iucd thread to confirm it is at proper place. Since your already taking an antibiotic please also take an analgesic like voveran/flexon for few days. If it does not work go for re-evaluation and investigation by ultrasound, urine test, blood test.

I am a 68 years old male having a good health generally speaking but being overweight , 1.75m tall and 120 kg. My main problem is gas as I fart quite often and sometimes it is very loud and disturbing to all specially to me. There is mostly no smell only noise. You doctors are always suggesting do not do this or that. Possibly you should suggest good practical food to eat as mostly all doctors suggest impossible next to all foods not to eat. Bloodpressure is 130/90 and blood chemistry is okay as I take 3 leaves of tulsi, 3 of neem, 3 of curry leaves and 3 mint leaves every morning. But iI still have kangaroo pouch below my stomach full of fat. And I walk daily 30 mns or more and I play golf walking once a week. Now I wait for your enlightening suggestion for a solution for my tummy.

Acidity: things to do: eat slowly. Have frequent meals instead of one large meal at a time. Have curds or lassi to decrease acidity. Drink 6, 7 glasses of water per day. Things not to do: avoid spicy and fatty food. Avoid eating eggs. Do not sleep immediately after having a meal. Do not be angry over anyone. It increases the acidity in the stomach. Do not take stress. Constipation: drink 6, 7 glasses of water everyday. Take diet rich in fibre like vegetables, fruits. Avoid fast foods like pizza, bread, etc. Drink warm water after getting up in the morning. Do exercises preferably in the morning. Even walking or jogging can help.
