Thanks for writing to us.
Allopurinol will help you in increasing the excretion of uric acid. For pain control, a mild pain killer and anti inflammatory is necessary. You also need to restrict the protein intake and increase vitamin C intake.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
