Hi There was a small flesh buble near my anus. Its paining. What is it. Im really tensed.

MS
General Surgeon, Panipat
Mr. lybrate-user. I think it may be a small strangulated piles which appears due to passing hard stools or straining on stools due to constipation. This will take about a week time to get smaller in size. I suggest you to please improve your eating habits take three full meals lot of fibres vegetables, fruits ,and plenty of water. Sit in warm water 4-5 mint 2 times a day add stool softener with your diet.

Stomach bloating is caused mainly because of air swallowing known as erophagia. The other causes are irritable bowel syndrome, dyspepsia, constipation ,celiac disease, sprue,bowel obstruction etc If you do regular exercises, then it will be useful to alleviate from the symptoms and still if you are having abdominal bloating or distension then you should start some medication like proton pump inhibitors, avoid excess carbohydrates and fatty foods, avoid oily and spicy foods. You should go to gastroenterologist who will take complete medical history with thoroughly clinical examination and can order investigation like complete hemogram, blood electrolytes, ultrasound of abdomen and upper GI scopy if required. The definitive treatment will depend upon the underlying cause. Regards,

Don't eat large amount of food at one time. Eat small amount of food in 2 to 3 hrs of interval. Don't drink cold water or large amount of water just after the food this will cause indigestion. Try to take food 2 to 3 hrs before sleeping at night. Avoid junk food, spicy and oily food. Exercise regularly. Eat fibrous food like salads and vegetables.

Its due to amoebic infection. You can take any antiamoebicidal as course which will give relief. The urinary frequency also comes down by that. But why you got that infection is due to food. So avoid outside food/junk food and for some reason you require to take outside food, take hot stuff. Maintain personal hygiene by washing your hands with soap and water after visiting washroom/toilet and before eating food. Good luck.
