Go to your doctor: Lesions that are persistent for more than 48 hours should be evaluated by your doctor.

Herpetic ulcers: You are most likely suffering from a herpes outbreak which most commonly occurs on the lips or inside the lips and cheek membrane. The virus lives dormant in nerves and comes out, to form ulcers or blisters which weep crust over and dry out over 4-10 days. Stress or diminished immunity can provoke an outbreak. Treatment involves topical or oral antivirals like valtrex, (valacyclovir) steroid paste can help also.

A 28-year-old member asked:

Will I be able to breastfeed if I have had a breast reduction?

5 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Benner
Obstetrics and Gynecology 33 years experience
No: Most women who have had breast reductions will find it difficult to nurse, and some may find it impossible. There's no harm in trying but it is important to be realistic. The operation relocates the nipple and disrupts the nerves that signal the brain to produce and release breast milk when the baby sucks. Sometimes there is adequate nerve function and with persistence nursing can succeed.

Since I became pregnant, i've had major breakouts. Is there anything I can do to make sure I don't get acne scars?

Benzoyl peroxide: Most of the OTC skin products for acne are safe in pregnancy. Simple soap and water works great, as long as you understand that the high Progesterone levels in the first trimester are the cause for acne -- by the end of the third month, most major flare-ups are over.

A 30-year-old male asked:

If I have had one seizure in the past is it safe to undergo a light hypnosis for anxiety I do take Dilantin which is a untheroputic level?

Get off it: Dilantin should be relegated to history. It is an old drug of high toxicity and major problems with use. Talk to your doctor about getting off or at least changing to a newer and safer seizure medication.
