A 28-year-old member asked:

Ive heard that adding vitamins a and d to diet during pregnancy may help control skin itchiness and rashes. Is this true? How much should I take?

Be careful: The body does need vitamin a and d in pregnancy. However, vitamin a in high doses can cause cleft lip and palate in the baby. Your prenatal vitamin pill should have enough vitamin a. Many people are low in vitamin d. Your doctor can check your vit d level to see if you should take extra. The amount needed depends on the vitamin d level in your blood.

Dr. Jeff Livingston
Obstetrics and Gynecology 22 years experience
Damaged muscles: Childbirth can be traumatic to the muscles and nerves surrounding the bladder, vagina and rectum. The nerves can be damaged and small tears in the muscles can lead to prolapse and incontinence is some women. It's nothing to be embarrassed about. It is common and fixable.

How long will it take to heal a stress fracture under the knee cap?

Dr. Frank Holmes
Sports Medicine 23 years experience
It depends...: Stress fractures of the patella or the groove in the femur are relatively uncommon. Healing time depends on many factors: severity of the fracture, age of the patient, compliance with rest and immobilization and whether other negative healing factors are present (smoking, diabetes, etc.). Generally speaking, 8-12 weeks would be typical time for healing.

Could emphysema cause increased perspiration & muscle ache during exercise?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Bryan Levey
Pediatrics 27 years experience
Effect, not cause: Exertion and fatigue cause muscle ache and perspiration during exercise. Emphysema may decrease the ability of your heart and lungs to deliver oxygen to the muscles you are exercising, thus increasing the exertion necessary to do an exercise, and increasing the fatigue that results from that exercise.

A 34-year-old member asked:

My child have fever and difficulty in breathing while sleeping. Should I just use a nasal spray and decongestant.?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Bryan Levey
Pediatrics 27 years experience
No: If your child is having fevers and difficulty breathing every night, and this is an ongoing thing, you need to see your pediatrician asap. If you are asking about a problem that's been going on for a couple of days, he probably has a mild viral illness. Give lots of liquids, a little tylenol (acetaminophen) for the fever, and if it persists, see your pediatrician.
