Healing skin itches.: The skin that is healing will tend to itch. This is very common. The more important issue is why are you cutting? If you are cutting intentionally you should find a counselor and seek treatment right away. If these cuts are happening at work you should talk to your supervisor so steps can be taken to reduce injury. Put lots of aloe cream on the site to reduce the itch.

Why did my doctor have to clamp and cut the cord during my delivery? Did I do something wrong?

No: This occurs when the umbilical cord is around the baby's neck and cannot be easily reduced or slipped over the baby's head prior to completion of delivery. There is nothing you did to cause this.

How can I cut down on alcohol?

Cutting down is hard: For someone with alcohol dependence or alcoholism cutting down is likely harder than stopping completely and usually does not work well. People without drinking problems rarely would ever even think they need to cut down. Sometimes they may be able, but most recovering alcoholics will tell you they tried again and again and could not succeed, the craving was to strong after the first drink.

Possible: Health-care workers have on rare occasions become infected with HIV by being stuck with needles containing hiv-infected blood. A few have also become infected by hiv-infected blood getting into the bloodstream through an open cut, or splashing onto a mucous membrane (e.g. The eyes or the inside of the nose). There have been only a very few documented instances of patients acquiring HIV by workers.
