Brief Answer: Detailed answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. Increased flatulence occurs when the digestion is abnormal ( maldigestion/malabsorption). There are many different causes for malabsorption. But one important cause in infection. So for relief from increased flatulence you need to take digestive enzymes and probiotics. The medication simethicone also provides relief from increased flatulence. You can discuss with your doctor about these medications and ask for a prescription. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini

This is a really embarassing problem and I don't know if anyone can give me some advice. I have gas down below (vaginal area)-(similar to "fanny farts" -I do apologise for that phrase). It's like bubbles that pop and I can't control it - I get it all the time but sometimes it's worse than others. The hospital say that they can't do anything to assist - they don't think it relates to my back passage, even though it sometimes seems worse if I've had wheat. I've had it said in the past that I have a lot of discharge but it's strange because I feel so kind over dry down there. Can anyone help because it really gets me down. Thanks
