Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concern. Indeed this can be an embarrassing situation. It may be related to diet and life style and at other times the cause could be related to infection. At this point I would suggest you trying over the counter products like Gas X. Restrict food that are hard to digest such as broccoli, beans, lentils, cauliflower, pulses and so on.

If the problem persists despite the changes and OTC, I suggest to see a doctor for clinical evaluation to rule out other causes including infections.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
