Sticky moist feeling in anus sometimes itching, burning after latrine. From 3-4 days. Chronic acidity and indigestion.

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , I think you have developed an anal fissure which is due to passage of hard faeces due to constipation or severe forceful diarrhoea. Fissure in itself increases constipation. Constipation is not a disease but lifestyle problem. Simply treat constipation by laxative, high fiber and high residue diet and apllication of zincal ointment in side anus especially before going toilet.

Suitable fluids to drink when you have diarrhoea include oral rehydration fluids, water, clear soups and broths and diluted juices. If you have nausea, try taking small sips of fluid often. Dehydration may be treated with oral fluids or, if severe, with intravenous fluids.

Any irritant in stomach causes flatulance and gastritis results. Foods that are alkaline should be preferred best. All acidic foods must be taken with care. Any drugs if taking, also can cause irritation. Take nux vomica 30 at night before bed time and puls 200 at morning before food, for a week and revert back.

I underwent a massage treatment in ayurveda that gained me 4 kg weight and changed my eating habits after which I started experiencing more irregular periods that came only 3 months once. The last time (3 months ago) when I got my period I had a fleshy chunky discharge that was 2 inches long. Then I experienced so much of pain in my lower abdomen. Now I am experiencing pain during my bowel movements. And I did not get my next periods till now. Should I wait till everything becomes normal? Or should I get immediate medical assistance? Is there any natural home care that I can follow. For your further information I am a virgin.

4 Superfoods to Get Rid of Acidity + 4 Home Remedies

4 Superfoods and home remedies to get rid of acidity

Excessive secretion of stomach acids brings about the problem of acidity with heartburn and dyspepsia being its common symptoms. There are foods as well as home remedies that can help you to get rid of this problem.

Some of them are:

1. Bananas - Being an excellent source of potassium, this fruit helps to keep acid production in balance. Moreover, certain elements in bananas aid in increasing the production of stomach mucus that helps to protect the organ from adverse effects of excessive acid production. Even its high fiber content promotes digestion, preventing the occurrence of acidity once again.

2. Ginger - Consuming ginger can help to bring about a significant improvement in digestion, superior absorption as well as proper assimilation of important nutrients. This root is helpful in protecting your body from stomach ulcers by enabling mucus production, thereby decreasing the negative effects of acid on the stomach.

3. Melons - Melons are also extremely good for fighting acidity. They have a pH of 6.1 and can be had as whole or as fruit juice. Whether it is watermelons or honeydew, these are refreshing fruits filled with nutrients. Each bite of a watermelon, for instance, contains high levels of Vitamins A, C, and B6, amino acids, antioxidants and lycopene as well as potassium.

4. Mint leaves - Even mint leaves are helpful in slowing down the acid buildup in the stomach while improving digestion. Its cooling effect can help to cut down the pain as well as burning sensation associated with acid reflux.

In addition to having these foods, there are certain home remedies that you can try for fighting acidity:

- It's wise to have your last meal about 2-3 hours before your bedtime to allow time for digestion of the food matter.
- You should always have your meals at regular fixed intervals. Keeping too wide a gap between meals can cause you to suffer from acidity.
- To curb instances of acidity, it's best to avoid spicy foods and caffeinated beverages.
- Having a glass of lukewarm water daily can also help in combating acidity.

I am 62 year retired male I got 3 cm malignant tumor in the rectum just above the anal verge. It is localised according to reports of ct and colonoscopy doctors are saying that it is t3n0m0 stage and highly curable. But doctor suggested for a direct surgery i.e apr and if there is a further need of chemoradiation can be taken. So I went for a second opinion and got advised that first I have to take chemoradiation for 35 days after that a rest of 4 weeks and then go for surgery. Now I am confused about what to do adjuvant therapy or neoadjuvant therapy.in both cases a permanent colostomy is advised coz tumor is just above anal verge.

Dear lybrate-user, please DO NOT get your surgery done. FIRST is CHEMORADIATION. Please assess with MRI if sphincter can be preserved. There are ways to prevent your sphincter avoiding permanent stoma. Do not get your APR done unless you receive CHEMORADIATION FIRST. After that MRI to be repeated and reassessed Regards.

Take an enema. Eat only fruits and salads for three days. Then go on a milk diet for ten days. For more details ask a private question. It can be removed permanently. Medicines can give you a very limited period relief.
