A 37-year-old female asked:
I have a deep cough that hurts my chest. I have had bronchitis before should I be worried?

Possibly pneumonia: I have found that when people have a deep cough associated with pain on taking a deep breath they often times have pneumonia. You should be evaluated by a physician. If this has been a long-term problem then you definitely need to be evaluated as there are other causes.

A 21-year-old male asked:
Is it bad if I sometimes feel pain on the right side of my body when I run and sometimes when I walk? Sometimes its on my left side. Is this bad?

Maybe, maybe not: If a person is "out of shape" due to not exercising recently, then getting some muscle aches or cramps with running or walking isn't bad. With stretching, massage, and a gradual increase in exercises, the symptoms should go away. If symptoms persist or are worrisome, a primary care doctor should evaluate to see if there is a disease or disorder that is causing the pains.

A female asked:
Do I have dry skin or eczema? My body tends to get dry easily. Why is that? And how can I make it better?

Doc needs to examine: Many skin conditions are difficult to diagnose without being seen. Some preventive measures: take warm showers (hot ones strip natural oils; baths do likewise); moisturize immediately after shower; if in sun or wind, moisturize & use sunblock; avoid strong soaps/body washes.
