This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Actually I need more details. But meanwhile,

Please start with following prescription:
1. VERATRUM ALBUM 30C , pills (buy minimum qty dispensable at the shop), take 5 pills (for one dose) daily once only in the AFTERNOON, (NO EXCESS DOSES PLEASE).
Nothing else to eat or drink 1 hour before and 1 hour after the doses.

Do’s & don’ts:
1. Stay away from Strong odors.
2. Do not touch medicines or spill them. Use the cap of container (of same medicine) to transfer the medicines.
3. Place the prescribed dose under the tongue and let it dissolve. Keep the dose for at least 2 minutes in mouth.
4. Keep medicine containers airtight, away from direct sunlight, heat, any smell and children.
5. Avoid strong smells and odors AFAP.
6. Do not take any other medicines for any health problems. Most symptoms go as they come within 24-72 hours.
7. Report any problems & seek appropriate advice.
8. Otherwise report progress after 2week.

Hi Radhey

Be more clear. What is that you like. Your comments should add value in helping the patient.

Your comment is neither educative nor helps the patient.
gavinimurthy 6 years ago
Well, start with the Prescription given and report after few days.
DrKulkarni 6 years ago
I like a changed and more inviting approach of Dr Kulkarni. Patient should feel connected right from start.
radhey1504 6 years ago
Veratrum Album also dint work.Constant constipation still there.
Someone suggested me PLumbum? Would that be a good option?
Vikas3 6 years ago
How much water does he drink each day?

Tell what he eats and drinks on a average day.

Include the above for dr k.

Also, explain "Rub his head with anything" what exactly he does? why?
DrKulkarni 6 years ago
The information you have provided doesn't match with Plumbum. But if you want to try it you may do so. See that you don't overdose. Just one dose should be ok.

If that doesn't help you may come back.

Meanwhile, I would like you to answer following:

Is he thirsty / thirstless?

Does he like music & dancing a lot?

Explain "Rub his head with anything"

Is he very cranky? Does he bore his face or nose?

Does he think he is the best among his peers? how does he behave with other kids?

"He throws toys" Does he really throw them away or just sctters? Is it out of anger or without?

How is physic? Tall/short/ slim/ chubby/big tummy/flat tummy? Anything else unique?

What foods does he eat every day?

What foods does he like?
What foods does he refuse?
simone717 6 years ago
Ok, now let me know what you would like to do? DO you want to give Plumbum? If so, you may give it. wait for at least a week. If you want to try anything else after that you may do so. If something works very good. But in case, the problem is not solved after all your efforts you may approach here any time.

Mrs. Simone,

Are you working on this case? Do you have some remedy on your mind and would you like to prescribe?
DrKulkarni 6 years ago
I am following for learning purposes.
I have seen many kids on here eating no fiber and bad diet, and not revealed until many meds later. Just curious what the diet is, that is all.
simone717 6 years ago
Ok. That's right, it's not uncommon.
DrKulkarni 6 years ago
Sorry I could have been more clear on what I was doing. My entire street is being torn up for repair, 10 hours a day, so it has been like posting from the war zone.
simone717 6 years ago
Never mind, I just wanted you to prescribe in case you were interested and had some remedy in your mind already.
DrKulkarni 6 years ago
In foods he used to drink milk or juice, In others he eats everything rice,chapati etc..
He likes curd,icecream very much.He is very thin. Big black ants comes to his urine.many times his anus is red and sometimes anus outerskin is very redish seems like got burned.
Vikas3 6 years ago
Dear Dr. kulkarni, the case is calling for Sulphur.
telescope 6 years ago

How and when his anus problem started? Does he complain of burning at anus? is it always red or sometimes? Does he scratch at his anus? Is there redness anywhere else?

Is anyone diabetic in your family? Please get his urine sugar checked once.
DrKulkarni 6 years ago
Dear telescope,

Thank you for suggestion. As you rightly pointed out the redness of anus should first remind us of Sulphur. But it is very particular symptom (Of course has PQRS value). Let us confirm if it also has any general manifestation. Moreover, his constitution doesn't appear to be of Sulphur. Your suggestion can be kept for consideration.
DrKulkarni 6 years ago
In the age of 2 he got severe itching and red anus he used to wake up in the night and used to cry because of itching. But now a days when he gets his red anus larger area of anus is effected.Outside the anus large area is red and allergetic. Apart from that no allergic sign no redness over the body.We dnt have diabetes in our family.But constipation state is changed when he was below two his stoll was large on front but normal back he used to cry until first part is not done. But now from 1 year its different he used to pass round shape ball type stool first and then large dry stool.Opium is good suited now or Plumbum what you suggest?
Vikas3 6 years ago
I cannot tell you about your choice of remedies when they are not in my consideration at all. My way of working is different. you want to 'relieve his constipation' but I want to 'cure him', at least, I attempt that way. There is big difference between these two which you may not understand.

I wish, you try all that you know or wish to, you may even try Sulphur as suggested by telescope. If any of these work it's great! Else, you may seek help from me anytime.

My main intention of coming to this forum is to help those who are hopeless and desperate. If you have any choice I need not intervene.
