The given symptom is indicating the digestive disorder and water imbalance.Nat.MUR 6x four tablets three times a day with little water can help.

Dr Tahira last decade
Nat. Mur is a good choice please try for a week as advise by dr. tahira and report.

Along with the medication,increase ur water intake and avoid spicy and fried foods.
Dr Tahira last decade
nat mur cures quite a few cases but not every case.

i remember a case which couldnt be cured by nat mur though all the symptoms matched well. later on probing i found that she had a strong syphilitic back ground. that was the reason the cracks were returning every month.

she was prescribed acid nit on her totality and she got cured.

i know her well as she stays in my locality.
rishimba last decade
Our main aim should be cure the patient,doent matter he is benefited by me or someone else.As u know Nat Mur is a Tissue Salt which brings water balance to its normal level,can be used with other homoeo medicines.Im sure whatever the problem is, medicines prescribing on symptoms, work.Here patient's given symptoms are not quite enough to recommend a deep and miasmatic medicine like Acid Nite.

Dr Tahira last decade
I second what you are saying Dr.Tahira.

Let us do service to society.

Rishi is also doing a lot of self-less service.

dear dr. rishimba,

Yes you are very right, we should not give any statement for embarrasment of our colleagues, as every body has his own experience and wisdom. some things which we do not found in book but in our practical experience.

dr. mahfooz
Mahfoozurrehman last decade
Oh... Im surprised why some people took my post in that way.It was just an opinion about the remedy.As i have always been very careful while prescribing a remedy at a platform where we cannot see patient's constitution.Some doctors very conveniently prescribe nosodes,very high potencies and the medicines which can put body on a severe reaction.I have observed a large number of patients who are victims of homoeopaths or hmoeo remedies.I didn't mean to hurt anybody as i have respect for all my colleagues.I hope you will understand my feelings.

Dr Tahira last decade
thanks to all for clarification..
rishimba last decade
Yes Dr. Tahira,
We respect your opinion and understand the need for caution....

Best wishes
