In most cases, the skin in the area is red. Vaginitis, an infection or inflammation of the vagina and vulva, can cause vaginal redness, itching, and more. Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted disease that can cause vaginal itching and discharge and pain. - in female its common urethritis is inflammation of the urethra. That's the tube that carries urine from the bladder to outside the body. Pain with urination is the main symptom of urethritis. Urethritis is commonly due to infection by bacteria. Symptoms of urethritis- common in male and female burning on urination. Frequent urination with only small amounts of urine passed on each occasion. Anal or oral infections. Urgent need to urinate. Bloody discharge from the penis. Blood in the urine. Yellowish discharge from the urethra. Itching or irritation around the opening of the penis. Note - some other reason is also may cause itching in genitals both male and female. Advice - argentum nitricum- 30, three times a day before meal, arsenic album - 30 three times a day before meal, and clean you genitals with antiseptic - calendula mother tinture - apply on affected part - 2-3 times a day. All are temporary treatment as per provided information, for permanent cure we need detail history and investigations. Homeopathy is best, safe and effective.

Renal pain generally occurs in the back and it radiates from loin to groin.(from back to anteriorly) depending on the location of the stone in the kidney it may radiates to testes or scrotum or in to your thigh.

For kidney stone start drinking at least 3-4 liters of water every day so that kidneys maintain proper flushing. Also have fresh juices / fruits. Coconnut water is best foru – have plenty of it. Strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if you r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. Try to keep your bowel clear. Avoid – tomatoes, beet root, leafy vegetables, cauliflower, beans, milk and other dairy products, yellow of egg. Have more of these – lemon / lime / Pineapple and its juice / Water melon, kulathhi ki daal. For pain you can have hot water bag fomentation over abdomen. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.

As you know smoking is injurious to health so if you can leave it it requires simple will power I think you have bit try it hard initially it will be difficult but at the end you are the winner. And about the red colour but one you must be taking less of water required by your body the colour of urine you are having due to concentration of urine. Best to be getva urine test done but have plenty of water by mouth it will be alright.

I am 48 single male healthy drink lot of water upto 4 lts daily urinate accordingly but during urination 80-10-10% instead of ine go. Kindly advice. Non diabetic, fasting 138 no bp/sugar.

Firstly intake of 4 litres of water is excessive, cut it down to about 2. 5litres. Secondly your fasting blood sugar level of 138 is suggestive of diabetes. You should get yourself checked thoroughly, meanwhile get Hba1c done.

I am suffering from kidney stone 4 mm in right, & 8 mm in left, feel blockage for urine. Kindly suggest.

Felllow in Endourology, MCh Urology, MRCS, MS, MBBS
Urologist,
Dear Mr I am sorry to know about your problem. I need to know the exact location of the stones. Small stones inside the kidney can be treated with medical therapy since they do not cause any blockage. If the stone has moved into the ureter (tube carrying urine from kidney to bladder), then it needs medical expulsive therapy to push the stone outside. Since this ureteric stone can potentially cause damage to your kidney, it needs to be monitored by a urologist. If expylsive therapy fails, you may need an endoacopic removal (ureteroscopy). If the stones of the size you had mentioned had come into the bladder, they will pass with time. Please get back to me with the exact location of each stone. Wish you a speedy recovery
