What treatment should I take for my child showing signs of growing belly along with yellow eyes and urine ?

My seven year old son is having a problem as from last week in which his belly is growing and his eyes are turning yellow and his urine is also yellow. When I try to press his belly he feels pain. The mother took him and the nearest HC and nurse in charge said he might have a lever problem. So what can be his health problem?

Hi,

Your son's clinical symptoms suggest that he may be suffering from hepatitis.

Please consult your physician as soon as possible. He/she will conduct a clinical examination. You may need to get some laboratory tests done (liver function tests, urine for bile salts/bile pigments).

Further treatment will be based on the results.

Hi Doc, I am 25 year old male and I contracted UTI about a week ago. My doctor prescribed me with Amoxicilin antibiotics (5-day course) and Ural to cleanse my urinary tract. I suspect that the infection had occurred along my urethra as I only felt pain when passing urine, had yellow discharge from my penis and no fever at all, and the urine test showed that there was an unusually high amount of white blood cells in my urine so it was an infection although it was not determined what bacteria was causing it (I had a full blown UTI years ago caused by E.Coli and at that time, I had high fever, chills and night terrors, so this time around it wasn t as bad as the previous one). As soon as I took the antibiotics, the symptoms begin to disappear and I thought that was the end of it. For a week, everything was fine and no symptoms manifested at all. However, today I felt a strong sensation to urinate in the morning (which woke me up from my sleep) and i felt a numb pain in my groin after urinating plus there was a small trace of blood in the urine. I went back to sleep and later in the morning, the sensation is still there but much lesser and there are some yellow discharge coming out of my penis. Strangely I don t feel any pain during urination at all, my urine is clear as it should be and no unusual smell was detected, although there is some tingling sensation in my groin which is rather irritating. I am worried that the infection is recurring and is it unusual to get the symptoms again after a week of meds? Or is it just residual effects of the infection and its a sign that its healing slowly? Note that I did not contract the UTI from a sexual intercourse and its most probably due to diarrhea that i got 3 weeks ago. Should I go see the same doctor or look a for a second opinion? Please help, thanks.

I have been having symptoms that no one can diagnose for about two years. Assuming no rare disease, and no microbes or parisites, i believe 99.99 of all of my symptoms are related to my vagus nerve and digestive system as a whole!Now with that being said about on oct 14th i went out for some beers to watch a football game. I hardly ever drink though!!!!That night and next day i had all over body itching and have had it ever since!!About two days earlier my throat was hurting and i remember two days before that my teacher told me she was sick!!I have had the sore throat ever since then(about seven weeks), then out of nowhere on about NOV 8th my joints and muscles and bones have become very tender and ache, in particular my hands and wrists and knees and hips.!!!I have a high GGT liver enzyme with all other liver numbers normal, Low vitamin D in the past and now i found out that my Autonuclear test was positive when i asked to be tested for lupus!!!They did other autoimmune tests and they were normal!!!Never had any throat cultures done!!My doctor thinks that my throat hurts because of heartburn at night!!I am very concerned about the joint pain and the sore throat and NON stop itching that is NOW waking me up at night as of last night!!PLEASE HELP as the Veterans ADMIN sucks!!!!!
