Calcium deposit???: On wound? I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by this. Neosporin is an antibiotic that can help prevent infection in wounds, but I don't think that it has any effect on calcium, and I can't think what is meant by calcium deposit on wound? Did you perhaps mean a "scab" (which is not calcium, but coagulated serum and dead cells)? That is a good biologic dressing and should not be removed. ...Read more

Suggest me some multivitamins tablet that contain good amount of zinc, calcium, magnesium.And should be safe to use?

Doctors and vitamins: I hope you understand that the various vitamin products on the market are something that most physicians would not have any expertise in. There are vitamin standards set by the government and daily recommended doses. These are all well displayed on the vitamin products available.

We come from a religious background where treatment is based on faith and home cures. What can we use to treat high calcium levels?

Reality: No religion forbids you to have a broken bone set. All the major world faiths accept scientific medicine as one of heaven's gifts to humankind. Not all hypercalcemia is serious, but if you have a parathyroid adenoma as the cause of your high calcium and you opt not to be treated, you'll feel worse and worse until it kills you. For the sake of the people who love you, do the right thing. ...Read more
