Q.

Dikderm Ontsteking - How do you get it

Hi I dont know what the English name is for the above mentioned sickness/condition. Can you provide me with the English name. How do you get this and what happens if you don't treat it. I think that I got it again after I had it about two months ago, I did not go to the doctor as he only gave me Antibiotics the last time I went. It lasted for about three days and went away. Are there any dangers in not going to the doctor ???

WebSkies, the term you’re looking for is colitis. Saying someone has colitis doesn’t say much – you need to find out what the cause inflammation is. It might be due to infection, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, ischaemia, etc. The best would be to see a gastroenterologist and have it sorted out. Good luck.

Ek soek raad vir swak beheer gedurende aanvalle van dairee. Wat kan die oorsaak daarvan wees. Ek is 65 jaar oud en het 'n kroniese maagseer. Dis 'n baie delikate probleem en ek voel verlee om dit met my dokter te bespreek. Is daar raad daarvoor?
