Hello Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Hello Dr. i have heard about you many times from my sister. I have two problems. 1) I suffer from a very severe menstrual cramps every month and i vomit a lot on the first day. Bleeding is normal every month i don't have any problem with that but the painful thing is that i vomit and severe cramps. I got my hemoglobin checked it was 11 four months back. I also feel weakness some times and regularly during my periods. The cramps are so severe that i have to take 2 days off from my work and i just lay on my bed like an unconscious person. 2) I get red rashes and itching on my skin in every 2 to 3 days. First i used to get in a week a year back but now after 16 months i get rashes every 2 to 3 days. Its so itchy that my whole body itches and i have to take CETGEL to get an instant relief. Its been 16 months now and i have taken all the medicines but there's no cure. Now i am taking Homeopathy medicine sine last month. But there's no change in my problem. I also have a severe Hair fall and cracked heels and dry skin but an oily face all the time. Please Solve my problem. Thanks allot doctor. XXXX

Brief Answer: Spasmodic dysmenorrhea Detailed Answer: dear XXXXXXX generally painful periods settle over time but conditions like endometriosis can cause severe pain which increases over years. a lot of women are relieved after childbirth . your ultrasound is normal. if you are married having a pregnancy can help if not the best option is to take mefanemic acid every time as soon as the periods start and no later and take regularly. a rectal exam can be done to look for endometriosis if you are a virgin. otherwise vaginal exam can be done. for skin rashes it's important to see a dermatologist
