HI

Thanks for posting your query

The details you have provided are inadequate ? You would be aware that online consultations are without clinical examinations as a result we need a detailed history of the events

1] Is this the first time you saw blood?
2] Are you constipated?
3] Is there any pain while passing stool?
4] Do you pass mucus with stool?
5] Is there any other symptom related to bowels?

Get back to me with the replies and I will be able to help you better

Hi

Thanks for posting your follow-up

Ok, your history is suggestive of piles [Hemorrhoids]

You need to see your doctor and get examined.

Yet I have few suggestions:
1] Take lot of fiber in your diet
2] Exercise Regularly
3] Avoid Junk food
4] Take 20-30 grams of Psyllum Husk daily before going to bed
5] You may take antibiotic therapy with Ofloxacin & Ornidazole, this is a prescription medicine ask your doctor to prescribe after examining you, this will help stop bleeding

If you have any confusion get back to me.

Hi,

Thanks for writing back.
You need not visit the emergency room. However, scabies needs to be treated with topical agents like permethrin and lindane. Sometimes, oral agents like ivermectin may also be required. But these are prescription drugs and you would need to see your treating physician for the same.

Get well soon
