Try to find out all of the symptoms affecting the person to be treated, no matter how embarrassing they may be, as they may be quite important.

How long has the person had the symptoms?
If the individual has had the symptoms for a considerable length of time it may be worth considering a visit to the doctor who can often treat with stronger medicines that will work much faster.

Have they tried anything else for this condition?
If the condition is stubborn and several remedies have already been used with no success it may be time to visit the doctor who can prescribe stronger medicines than those that are available from your chemist.
