Hello Doctors. Pls help me with this. I'm having blood in my stool so I went for colonoscopy and a small bump of size of a marble was found in my lower large intestine. The Dr. Prescribed me 2 tabs of Mesacol OD 1.2g daily for 2 weeks. I thought now it'll be cured but after 2-3 days of completing the dose of 2 weeks, I started bleeding again. Now the Dr. Says it's the case of Ulcerative Colitis, so you have to take Mesacol OD for next 6 months, and you don't have to worry as these pills don't have any side effects. Now even after taking 2 tabs, I feel that 2-3 ml of blood comes out after every 3-4 alternate days. Doctors pls help me and show me the direction to cure it.

Take homoeopathic medicine TELLURIUM 1M 4Pills 4Times 4days n give a gap of 1 week again repeat 4days,in such way take 5 courses.. Try not to apply any creams or lotions as u ll suppress the rashes.. try to maintain proper hygiene n keep that part as dry as possible..n if too itchy u can apply Coconut oil/Candid Clotrimazole dusting powder.. Take lots of water..n try not to mix up ur clothes with others,wash them separately as it seems to b a fungal infection.. n if too itchy boil water n add asfoetida(hing) n take at night before sleep as it ll reduce itching n give sound sleep... Take care..

Dear lybrate-user, itching of inner thigh region can be fungal infection induced. Make sure you keep the area completely dry after bath. Fungus grows in moist areas. About the dark spots, it takes time to get lighter. Use the cream FUNGIDERM.

Hi lybrate-user use a sun screen lotion every time you go out in the sun. Exposure to sun rays will slow down the repairing of the skin. For scare you can first try homeopathy treatment - internal medications and external application creams etc.

Hello dr, iam 22 year's old. My skin tone is medium fair. But I have light brown dark circles around eyes & darkness around chin & forehead. I hve tried many creams but doesn't suited!

Dark circles are not a serious skin problem, but they make people look tired, exhausted, unhealthy and older. You can easily get rid of unsightly shadows under your eyes using some easy home remedies turmeric has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help minimize dark circles. It will also make the skin around your eyes smoother and softer. 1. Mix two teaspoons each of turmeric powder with pineapple juice to make a thick paste. 2. Apply this paste to the affected area. 3. Leave it on for about 10 minutes before wiping it away with a soft, damp cloth. 4. Do this daily until you get positive results. Any queries inform me.

Twice in week I have an irresistible urge to check net about females breast. I know its a milk feeding organ which woman develop during stages of puberty. My obsession has become a distraction. And I am unable to concentrate. What would happen if I get married and gave birth to a female child. What will the child think of his dad. How to treat it, please tell.

Attraction to female breasts is inherently built into male psychology so its not much of a wrong thing. But you should concentrate on your work and do not watch porn. Its more like addiction although there is nothing wrong in watching porn stuff. Once you get married and as your age increases with responsibilities coming in most of these urges will go away.
