Resolved Question:

Hello Doctor,

more than a week now. i have a burning sensation in my stomach, eyes, noses, ears, palm, feet-sole, under-armpit, and urine area.

I had been fasting for 19 days, and stopped for this heat sesation.

Also the climate here is very hot whihc aggravates the situation.

I tried avoiding all non-vegetarian, and spicy food. Lived only on yoghurt. But still not much improvement.

I when to a doctor after it was unberable, esp. nose felt like severely injured, he said its viral.

Did the doctor run any tests and did he treat this in any way?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No the doctor did not run any test.


 


But yes after taking the antibiotic and Menfenamic my nose burning went away and overall there was some improvement.


 


But still i was avoiding spicy food, non-vegetarian etc. and was drinking water a lot.


 


But the burning didn't go away completely.


 


And from today again i am fasting, to this burning feels more as i cannot have water during fasting.


 


But i think its not related to fasting; since when i took a break in between still the burning was there; but i could use some water or juice to help feel better for awhile

OK. This could be a problem with your liver or your kidneys and you need blood work to check for that. It could also be an electrolyte imbalance with your potassium or magnesium so that needs to be checked, too. Finally, this could be an allergy problem and I would give you an antihistamine like benadryl or Claritin to see if that clears up your symptoms.
