My dad has radiation burns inside, that has been causing bleeding and loss of weight? What can we do natural to heal him?
Radiation burns are similar to the burns caused by any other substances such as burns resulting from chemicals, for sun, from exposures to flames or contact with hot liquids.
Internal burning sensation is present in all type of burns whether it is
- superficial burns
- second degree burns and
- Deep third degree burns.
As your dad is taking radiation therapy I presume that he is suffering from malignant or cancerous disease. Weight loss may be one of the symptoms of the disease itself rather than radiation burn although this cannot be ruled out.In any case the most important thing is to increase the weight with proper diet and nutrition.
Proper nutrition will also help in healing the burn caused by radiation.
As the burn is deep and bleeding it looks to be a second degree burn.
It is always advisable to consult a doctor if the burn is second degree or third degree and the burn is more than 2 to 3 inches in diameter.
