Dear Lybrate user, sounds like this is a case of anal fissure, you have to take fibre rich diet, do sitz bath two times a day and also apply nifecaine gel in the perianal area. Syp cremaffin 10 ml at bed time will help you to soften your stools.

She used to masterbate with me and I have also done tongue tornado on her vagina and I have fingered in her anus. Does it will cause any problem to me and my girlfriend? But I have not sexually intercourse with her.

FMAS, MS
General Surgeon, Gandhinagar
Respected lybrate-user hi performing all these acts require high level of hygiene & cleanliness then both will have least chances of getting problem. Like tell her to clean her vagina clearly with dettol soap & dry it before you do tongue tornado. You also have to similarly do that with your penis before she does any oral act. Shaving of private parts also matters a lot. After finger act of rectum immediately thoroughly wash your hands with dettol antiseptic. Thanks regards.

Gallbladder Stone - Can Homeopathy Treat it?

BHMS, DI Hom (London)
Homeopath, Varanasi
Gallbladder Stone - Can Homeopathy Treat it?

Homeopathy can very well dissolve gall stones of small and medium sizes, and relieve the gall bladder and body permanently from the pain, suffering and complications coming from gall stones. One of the benefits of homeopathic treatment for gall stones is that your gall bladder does not need removal, and being an important organ for producing digestive enzymes, it is better to keep it in your body. The other benefit is that you get a side effect-free treatment, which is completely efficient and practical, and costs really low compared to other modes of treatments and surgeries.

But before one goes for a homeopathic treatment, a complete evaluation of the patient’s case history must be done so that the right medicine can be given as per the case, history, severity etc. Here is a quick look at the commonly used homeopathic medicines, which doctors, depending on your case history, may prescribe for your gall stone.

Homeopathic medicines used for treating gall stones

  1. Calcarea carbonica: If you have a family history of kidney and gall stones, are anxious and slow, overweight with high deposits of triglycerides and cholesterol, then you would be given this medicine.
  2. Chelidonium: If you get pain in any or both of the two patterns pain originating under your right shoulder blade and pain in the upper right abdomen, which spreads to the back, you will be prescribed this one.
  3. Lycopodium: This medicine is usually recommended in case you have a family history of stones in kidney and gall bladder, along with other complications like, chronic digestive disorders, high cholesterol, gastric problems, constipation, peptic ulcers, gas and bloating. The patient may usually get biliary colic pains late in the afternoon. He or she may also get irritated easily, and hate contradicting opinions.
  4. Natrum sulphuricum: The patient may have any or some of the problems like chronic diarrhea, gall stone pain, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression, obesity and problem in joints. On top of that the patient may be too sensitive to changes in humidity and weather. In such a case, Natrum sulphuricum is given.
  5. Nux vomica: If a patient suffers from nausea, colic pains, spasmodic pains, heartburn and acidity, gas and bloating, and takes too much of rich and oily food and drinks, then this medicine is used to treat gall stones for him or her.

As you can see, there is a remedy for all types of patients. Hence in case of small to medium sized gall stones, you can always retain the gall bladder, avoid surgeries, and keep patience with systematic homeopathic treatment from an expert doctor. You will get positive results soon.

I am suffering from severe acidity and this is leading to loose motion. Let me know the solution.

Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Doctor of Medicine
General Physician,
I am suffering from severe acidity and this is leading to loose motion.
Let me know the solution.
Acidity usually is not the reason for loose stools. Still I can try to help you for the same. Avoid eating spicy and oily food. Avoid heavy meals. Instead prefer small frequent portions. Avoid taking stress. Remember 3 causes - hurry worry & curry will cause acidity. For loose stools. Include natural probiotics in your diet like curd. And eat 2-3 bananas in a day. Still no relief then you will need to start medications. But after more detailed history and a tentative diagnosis. Good luck. Tc.

Please suggest some medicine for Fistula in ano. Last year I faced operations for High End Fistula In Ano and Doctor confirmed that the problem is over now but currently I am feeling minor pus releasing and not feeling any pain, so is thr any alternative option except for operation?

You can prevent the infection by using antibiotics. But the fistula formed should be operated and repaired. So,surgery is the final option.
