Can the doctor induce me for an irritable uterus at 37 weeks?

No: Induction of labor should not be done before 39 weeks unless there is a clear medical reason. As long as the pregnancy is otherwise normal, an irritable uterus would not qualify as a reason where the risks of early delivery would mean it is safe to induce labor.

What does ringworm on the hand look like after 5 weeks of treatment?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Colin Kerr
Family Medicine 44 years experience
Ringworm: If properly diagnosed and treated, ringworm of the hand should be completely resolved by 5 weeks. At worse there might be some residual faint pink tint to the skin and it may be a little smoother than normal, but no scarring. In individuals with darker pigmented skin the area of the healed infection is likely to be lighter in color for several months.
