    Hello sir, ulcer for such a long period without relief is something you should see a doctor about. he will examine you and check that there are no other symptoms that you might not have noticed. There are a lot of other options of medication other than cimetidine but these can only be prescribed by a doctor after making sure you're fit for it. Also, maybe you can check your diet. there are foods like beans, pepper, protein rich food that can worsen ulcers. Are you eating these foods regularly? Also, are you eating late just before bed? These can contribute to your early morning pain. Feel free to keep conversing if you have any other questions

    thanks for that information. it is very likely the cause if the pain is the daily consumption of beans. I would advice you to try and go a day without eating beans and seeing if you have any pains. it is possible that you might not even need to change your medication. Please let me know how it goes.

    we are just back from the village where mosquitoes bitten us badly.is it adviceable to treat malaria even at no sign now. only my little girl showing signs. can we all treat malaria

    Hello sir, there is no need to treat malaria if there are no symptoms. Just like any other medication, anti malaria can have side effects though they are very very very rare and there is no need to use them without symptoms. You should however use it for your daughter that has symptoms. Also, for yourselves stay observant and purchase anti malarial to keep in the house so that as soon as you see symptoms you can start using mediation. All the best.

    Thanks for your question sir. What you are experiencing is called hemorrhoids. Do you experience any pain when the thing coming out comes out or when you push it back in? Also do you notice any bleeding from the anus? Also the tissue that comes out, what colour is it. Finally, does the protrusion occur when you strain very hard to defecate or when you defecate normally.

    That's fine. I would advice you to do a sitz bath. Get a wide bowl that you can sit over. Put some warm water, not too hot that it can burn you but hot enough to produce steam. Add about two caps of dettol into the water and sit above it. Don't sit inside the water, just sit above it such that the steam will be entering your anus. do this for about 1 week. if you don't notice an improvement, I would advice you to go straight to a doctors office for further examination. Also try and eat more fiber in your meals like wheat, back of oranges, cucumber, vegetables, etc and drink more water. This will allow you to pass stool more easily without straining too much. Hope this helps

    OK. this help cos I was looking for a way to pass stool easily cos .doctor advise that I should not strain in toilet cos I I did Hermia surgery just about 7 month ago

    The doctor is very right, you should try as much as possible not to strain in the toilet. If you have tried eating a lot of fiber to no avail, you can then try using Liquid Paraffin. It will soften your stool but please use it very sparingly as it can make your stool watery if used too much. Let me know how it goes with the sitz bath

    Not just when it is out. You should do it about 3 times a day, or at least 2 times a day. You need to do it with that regularity for it to work whether or not it is coming out.
