The past few months i have unusual lot of gas, which is often quite embarassing. I also have itching around the anal area and further up, and reddness (sking irritation) down the middle. I have used Betnovade Cream for two weeks, but having stopped it, after a few days I feel the symptoms slowly returning. I cannot understand why this is happening, because i haven t changed anything in terms of food habitts, environment, ... nothing. Would the skin irritation be a result of the gas (and its chemical consistancy) - it lookes like burnet ... because the gas is frequent and is caged in the underware? Could you please suggest something. Should I have a stool sample examined ? thanks a lot Vivienne

Recent questions on  Flatulence

doctor1 MD

Good evening, I had a recent bout of what my GP described as gastro virus. Symptoms were bloating , severe cramping with constant burping and flatulence . No vomiting or diarrhoea. I had feverish feelings but no high temp. This lasted for 4 days and is thankfully almost gone. The day I went to my GP (4th day) I was developing a rash on my face and forehead . I thought it might be the stress of the previous days and nights. My GP didnt have an opinion. This has gotten somewhat worse. It is not itchy but has a burning sensation and very noticeboard. I was wondering if this might be an after effect of my stomach ailment or something else. I have been applying a mild moisturiser with no effect as yet. Thank you for any advice.

Hi doctor, I am 28year male and is suffering from frequent and excessive flatulence . My bowel movements are fine but the stool is smelly and loose (like a thick paste) in nature. Colonoscopy , endoscopy and ultrasound turned out to be fine. I daily go to the toilet two times in the morning but whatever the case, the flatulence starts by late afternoon. I have changed my diet quite a lot of times but have not found any improvement. I had taken Rifagut for quite some time and it is effective as long as the medicine is taken. As soon as the medication is stopped, the symptoms are back again. What could be the reason for the loose stools and for the flatulence?

Any suggestions to what this is? It causes a little discomfort but Thais it.

Hi Doctor...you've been very helpful in the past. I have moved from Parnate to Marplan (isocarboxazid) and my current doctor knows nothing about MAOIs. Essentially it's very close to Phenelzine but without the effects on Gaba transaminase. Side...
