General & Family Physician Dr. Jitender Chauhan's  Response
Hello, welcome to HCM. The white discharge is significant. It signifies infection in the wound. You should immediately bring it to notice of your concerned doctor. Till then you should try not to wet the area and keep it clean but cleanning it with betadine solution using a sterile gauze piece if dressing is not there. wish you good health.

age-28,ht-5ft 5,wt-55,
I am smoking for last 2 years . I usually smoke at-most 10 cigrate in a day but not a regular smoker.
From last 7 days I felt pain on my right side of my throat. I consulted a ENT specialist yesterday and asked her is it symptoms of throat cancer,she said it is the reversible stage of cancer and prescribed only Betadine Gagelling without other medicine . Is it really cancer symptom? I think it is only due to throat infection,am I right?

Hi I'm 28 and 16 weeks pregnant and its my first baby. I usually get constipated very easily and in pregnancy it has worsen. I'm using Isphagul (pure psyllium husk) mixed in water and now i'm having a bowel movement every alternative day. That's some how fine, but now I have a severe pain while passing stools and sometimes it bleeds. Its painful for the next 3 to 4 hours and then the pain disappears but the pain is too much and I cant bear. Hence I started using Xyloproct and Betadine ointments in that affected area. Is it good to use these ointments during pregnancy? If not please suggest some alternative and help.
