General Surgeon 's  Response
From the clinical symptoms you have described, it is a umbilical sinus which in this age group usually occur due to poor hygiene in the local area or tuft of stiff body hairs collect in the umbilicus and form what is called as umbilical sinus or weeping umbilicus.Your mother needs to get examined by a General surgeon doctor for proper management of the condition.Initially she may may be given antibiotics and if the condition does not settles than surgery would help and cure her condition.

General & Family Physician Dr. Prahlad S. Patki's  Response
Your mother needs to get examined by your doctor to rule out gastrointestinal infections like amebiasis or bacterial infection. Stool examination will help. Accordingly your doctor will prescribe drugs like Metronidazole and or Ofloxacin. Plenty of water inateke and eating hygenic food, practicing good hand hygeine are essential.

I have had a stomach infection since last 5 days. Doctor suggested some medicine named levoflox. It was not completely well.. But I ate eggs the next morning and paneer in the After noon and nutrela at night. My stomach was too heavy. I also have a liver problem. So I could not digest anything properly and the next day I had severe losemotions. I went to the loo more than 15 times. I m also suffering from piles.. So even that worsened by frequently going to the loo. Doctor suggested me pantop D and oflox tz for losemotions. Have been taking it from last two days. My losemotions have subsided but I still have pain in stomach. What should I take so the stomach infection gets completely well ?? I am taking khichdi n last night had lauki and chapati. For piles I am applying Anovate. Is there a better medicine?? It is painful. I want the fissure to subside. Please advise.

The first time when it happened to me i saw some green gel on my boxer after i went to the doctor and she made for me an injection and gave me medicine ( Ofloxacin and Azitromcin ) and every thing was okay later on also it happened to me although i didn't have sex only oral and i went i take injections and same medicines than later on around 7 month again because of blood i took only the medicine and before 1 month it happened to me but i saw on my boxer a little drops of gel with no color than i took medicine and it went and always i can feel that i have something wrong when my penis is not getting hard 100 % like you can say only 70 % with a little little pain on the head and now i have the same thing my penis is not getting hard 100 % but there is no gel drops on my boxer ...

Hi I have had a very small amount of discharge in the end of my Urethra some mornings if I squeeze all the way along my penis. I noticed this when I started checking due to me slowly finding it more difficult to urinate (seems to spray more than it used to but I've had a bit of a problem with this for years).I thought that it was an sti, and have been treated for chlamidia and am currently on a weeks course of ofloxacin to treat for nsu. I'm only a day away from the end of this treatment and I noticed it's still there this morning.Could this be something else?
