I have piles. And I would ask you this danger disease. How to remove this disease.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Dangers can be sever bleeding or obstruction leading to a dire emergency .Piles are haemorrhoids that become inflamed. Haemorrhoids are masses, clumps, cushions of tissue in the anal canal - they are full of blood vessels, support tissue, muscle and elastic fibers. Piles can be of various sizes and may be internal (inside the anus) or external ones (outside the anus). Typically, internal piles occur from 2 to 4cm above the opening of the anus. External piles (perianal hematoma) occur on the outside edge of the anus. The internal ones are much more common. Symptomatic haemorrhoids affect at least half the population at some time in their lives before the age of 50. In the majority of cases, piles are effectively treated with over-the-counter medications, a good fluid intake, and by following a diet high in fibre. In severe cases, the piles may have to be surgically removed. About 10% of patients who go and see their doctor about piles eventually require surgical intervention. Internal haemorrhoids are classified into four grades.  Grade 1 - there are small inflammations, usually inside the lining of the anus. They are not visible  Grade 2 - larger than grade 1 haemorrhoids, but also inside the anus. When passing a stool, they may get pushed out, but return unaided  Grade 3 - often called 'prolapsed haemorrhoids'; these appear outside the anus. The patient may feel them hanging out. They can be pushed back in if the patient presses with their finger  Grade 4 - these cannot be pushed back in and need to be treated by a doctor. They are large and stay outside the anus all the time. External haemorrhoids are called perianal hematoma. These are small lumps that are located on the outside edge of the anus. They are very itchy and can be painful if a blood clot forms inside (thrombosed external haemorrhoid). Thrombosed external haemorrhoid requires medical treatment straight away PILES OCCUR when the blood vessels around the anus and in the rectum will stretch under pressure and may swell or bulge. Inflamed veins (haemorrhoids) can develop when pressure increases in the lower rectum. This may be due to:  Chronic constipation9  Chronic diarrhea10  Lifting heavy weights11  Pregnancy12  Straining when passing a stool.13 The tendency to develop haemorrhoids may also be inherited. The risk of developing piles grows with age Treatments for piles In the majority of cases, piles resolve on their own without the need for any treatment. Treatments can help significantly reduce the discomfort and itching that many patients experience. Diet - piles can be caused by too much straining when doing bowel movements, which is the result of constipation. A change in diet can help keep the stools regular and soft. This involves eating more fiber, such as fruit and vegetables, or switching your cereal breakfast to bran. Water is the best drink, and the patient may be advised to increase his/her water consumption. Some experts say too much caffeine is not good. Simple things you can do yourself to help prevent piles:10  Try not to strain when you go to the toilet  Avoid laxatives  Exercise. Ointments, creams, pads and other OTC medications - there are some over-the-counter (OTC) medications which help soothe the redness and swelling around the anus area. Some of them contain witch hazel, hydrocortisone, or some other active ingredient which can relieve symptoms of itching and pain Surgery - used for particularly large piles, or grades 3 or 4 haemorrhoids. Generally, surgery is used if other procedures were not effective. Sometimes surgery is done on an outpatient basis - the patient goes home after the procedure.

It may be a fungal infection, but it is difficult to diagnose without seeing the lesions. contact a good dermatologist for proper diagnosis. meanwhile you can apply an antifungal cream like candiderm etc.

Sciatica is pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg, caused by compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back, often owing to degeneration of an intervertebral disc. Ayurvedic medicines are very effective in case of sciatica. Apply prasarini oil with light hand on affected part and give hot fomentation. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 spoon two times a day. Pranacharya sciatica capsule 1-1 after lunch and dinner. Maha yograj guggul -1 after lunch and dinner. Avoid tea. Coffee. Fermented food. Junk food. Spicy food. Cigarettes. Alcohol. Take milk. Fruits. Green vegetables. Do pranayama early in the morning. Walk for 30 minutes a day. Do sciatica exercise stretching. And leg exercises.

The itching and inflammation of skin due to insect bite is a sort of allergic reaction of your skin towards the bite of insects. The triple cream consists of a steroid as one part and that can help reduce the inflammation but if the skin becomes tender and inflammed the other contents can irritate the skin more. So the better option is to consult a doctor and get examined and a anti-allergic medicine prescribes and you will feel better in an hour or two. For immediate relief he may even give you a shot of cortisone (steroid)

Hi. I understand your concerns. As you have cough more than 2 weeks you will need to undergo a detailed evaluation with chest x ray to look for lung infection. Consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

I am 48 years old suffering from chronic pancreatities and vomiting indications. Please advise.
Chronic pancreatitis can be difficult to treat. Doctors will try to relieve the patient's pain and improve the nutrition problems. Patients are generally given pancreatic enzymes or insulin. A low-fat diet may also help. Surgery may help relieve abdominal pain, restore drainage of pancreatic enzymes or hormones, treat chronic pancreatitis caused by blockage of the pancreatic duct, or reduce the frequency of attacks.

Dear lybrate-user, if you are better with nexito forte, why do you want to stop. With the symptoms your quality of life will be less and your career may be affected. So I would advise you to continue the drug and consult your doctor again. If the doctor offers some form of talk therapy like cbt (cognitive behaviour therapy), probably you may be able to stop drugs without getting back symptoms. But cbt itself may take many session and will go on for 5-6 months weekly sessions. Both nexito and cbt will reduce your symptoms and you can plan for better career. By themselves it will not affect your career. Masturbation will not lower serotonin level or insomnia. But guilt of masturbation can cause. So you should get rid of guilt. Again nexito and cbt will help in getting rid of guilt.

If she is sure about taking the medicines regularly and not having missed her doses, then she will require a slight increase in her dosage. If not, then she could regularise her medicines and repeat the test after around 4 to 6 weeks and then increase the dose if the tsh is still high.
