Why do liquids feel like leaking out of the digestive tract?

Hello doctor,

I feel irritation and pain in the abdomen, particularly below my right rib cage for almost two years now. I feel like water and liquid food gets diffused outside the digestive tract, into the outer parts and skin. It causes allergic irritation, inflammation, discomfort, and pain in that area, especially while I sleep or sit.

What are the treatments for lipoma?

Hello, doctor,

I have had various lipomas for a long time, and they were all found to be non-vascular. However, in the last three to six months, I have observed a lot more, perhaps 40 or more in total. Some are shaped like spherical balls, others flat. The spherical balls burn sharply when touched. They are everywhere, with six or seven on both arms. A few on the thighs, and most behind the knee are less than 1 cm. For the past three months, I have had a low-grade temperature at night.

The doctor stated they did not feel like lipomas during the examination, but an ultrasound revealed they were. I need to know what your thoughts are and what the best approach is.

Kindly suggest.

Hi doctor,

I am having a mild, tender bump or a lump or a kind of knot deep under the skin on the deltoid muscle. It is very hard to tell if it is moving under the skin. It has been there for three years. I have not noticed any significant growth in the last three years. I am quite scared after reading about sarcomas. I am 20 years old. Please help.

Can an open peroneal tendon surgery wound get infected?

Hello doctor,

I had peroneal tendon surgery, and some sterile strips fell off, and the wound was not all the way closed. The stitches were taken out five days ago. Will it still close even though nothing is holding it and it is open? Will I get an infection? I cannot go to the doctor as I cannot drive. It is midnight, and everyone is asleep. I am also not well right now.

What are the treatments available to remove scars permanently?

Hello doctor,

I met with an accident one and a half years ago. I was severely injured but got cured. The problem now is the scars are raised and there is no hair growth in that area. The scar is just below my nose. What are the treatments available to remove scars completely? I have attached a picture of the area.
