Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are many possible causes for severe abdominal pain. If it is true that the intensity of the pain is so great that it looks like it wants to burst, then you should not delay the doctor's examination. Because, this condition can be dangerous and requires immediate treatment.
Some of the possible causes of abdominal pain are:
Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction) Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa) Gastric ulcer Peritonitis (infection of the lining of the abdominal cavity) Urinary tract infections Hepatitis Gastroenteritis (infection of the digestive tract) Appendicitis (inflammation of the appendix) Hernias, etc. The appearance of black spots on the abdomen can also be caused by many things, not necessarily related to the pain in your stomach. This lump may appear due to hematoma, hemochromatosis, phototoxic reactions, neurofibromatosis, and so on.
It is not enough to make a diagnosis of your father's complaints without doing a physical examination in person. Therefore, you should take your father to have his complaint checked by a doctor. If necessary, the doctor will perform X-rays, ultrasound, laboratory tests, or also take a skin sample from the abdomen for microscopic examination.
In the meantime, first compress your father's aching stomach using warm water. Let him rest a lot and limit the first lifting of things that are too heavy. Remind your father to eat regularly, but still by limiting spicy and fatty foods. He also needs to be diligent in bathing and wearing clean clothes.
Hope it helps.
