Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Avil is chlorpheneramine – an antihistamine.
It does not help in infection.
Antihistamines have been known to cause arrhythmias
Better to avoid.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Dear XXXXXXX

Heart symptoms are often mistaken for 'gastric' symptoms.
Since, he has both problems - the best solution will be to see the cardiologist first. XXXXXXX Hrudayalaya is one of the premier institutions in the country and he can approach them confidently - especially because, he had been there on previous occasion. He should take his previous records. (If not with him, it can be scanned and mailed to him)

It is multi-speciality hospital - most likely, they have specialists in gastroenterology also. They can have a look at the stomach and oesophagus.

Regarding the penis infection - the ideal person will be Urologist or Venereologist. Smear or blood tests may be needed... Antibiotic - local and/or Systemic - will be given depending on the nature and severity. Smear may have to be taken.

Appropriate treatment needs definite diagnosis. And diagnosis is feasible only on examination and/or investigation. All the 3 problems can be managed simultaneously under one roof - at the multi-speciality hospital..

All the best
Good luck
