Remove bloodstains before washing

I take a medication to reduce clotting which means a scratch can bleed for a while. If not noticed and washed straight away it is very difficult to remove. Sodium Hydroxide solution aka caustic soda will remove dried blood from white cotton sheets before washing. It is the main constituent of oven cleaner/ drain/plug hole cleaner. Test before use but note it will remove printed patterns so only use on plain fabric and only on cotton/polyester-cotton/nylon/polyester especially not wool or silk. Use rubber gloves and avoid splashing, wash off skin/eyes immediately if affected. It also dissolves rusty stains and others of a "biological" nature.

type of food to eat to dissolve blood clots

The 4 powerful food, helps in dissolving blood clot are:
1. Natto: Natto contains an enzyme called nattokinase which may reduce the formation of blood clots, and dissolve those that have already been formed.

2. Apple: This fruit doesn't directly dissolve clots. But, Apple contains a compound called rutin that has been found to be a potential clot-buster.

3. Papaya: It's effective in clot-busting, though, is believed to be due to its ability to eliminate the fibrin in blood clots.

4. Pineapple: Pineapple is the source of bromelain, it possesses anti-clotting and fibrin-dissolving properties.

Deep pain in my right hip while walking

Symptoms of Hip Pain

Depending on the condition that's causing your hip pain, you might feel the discomfort in your:
  • thigh
  • inside of the hip joint
  • groin
  • outside of the hip joint
  • buttocks
Sometimes pain from other areas of the body, such as the back or groin (from ahernia), can radiate to the hip.
You might notice that your pain gets worse with activity, especially if it's caused by arthritis. Along with the pain, you might have reduced range of motion. Some people develop a limp from persistent hip pain.

Hip Pain Relief

If your hip pain is caused by a muscle or tendon strain, osteoarthritis, or tendinitis, you can usually relieve it with an over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as Motrin or Aleve.
Rheumatoid arthritis treatments also include prescription anti-inflammatory medications such as corticosteroids, or disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) like methotrexate and sulfasalazine.

Another way to relieve hip pain is by holding ice to the area for about 15 minutes a few times a day. Try to rest the affected joint as much as possible until you feel better.
If you have arthritis, exercising the hip joint with low-impact exercises, stretching, and resistance training can reduce pain and improve joint mobility. For example,swimming is a good non-impact exercise for arthritis. Physical therapy can also help increase your range of motion.
When osteoarthritis becomes so severe that the pain is intense or the hip joint becomes deformed, a total hip replacement (arthroplasty) may be a consideration. People who fracture their hip sometimes need surgery to fix the fracture or replace the hip.
Call your health care provider if your pain doesn't go away, or if you notice swelling, redness, or warmth around the joint. Also call if you have hip pain at night or when you are resting.
Get medical help right away if:
  • The hip pain came on suddenly.
  • A fall or other injury triggered the hip pain.
  • Your joint looks deformed or is bleeding.
  • You heard a popping noise in the joint when you injured it.
  • The pain is intense.
  • You can't put any weight on your hip.

Ma'am u didnt mention your age.. But still according to the symptoms u wrote.. U should seriously consult a doctor for this.. This can be really harmful for your health.. Be very careful during your periods not to drink very cold water or drink very hot stuff.. as that causes more bleeding & can also make clots in ur abdomen! Also avoid junk food. Drink as much water as possible.. It will reduce the pain during periods.
