Anxiety: I am sure that there will be many answers to help you, but i would suggest the use of hypnosis to relieve anxiety. A psychiatrist or psychologist or other physician that employs hypnosis as a therapeutic technique can help quite a bit.

Exercise is a great way to relieve the stress too and to just get your mind off the studies for a short time. You need to take breaks!

Not unusual anxiety: It is not unusual to be anxious about exams. You can try some relaxation exercises before exams. Use the phrase, "quick and easy recall" during relaxation. Ask yourself what is the worst thing that can happen if i get a bad grade on an exam. Can you handle that? If you can handle it (most people can), just being aware that you can handle any outcome is helpful.

Preparation...: Use your anxiety to your advantage. Do worry about the exam (don't blow it off!)--but prepare, prepare, prepare. Study hard, know your material, and relax (just a bit), confident that you are ready and will do well! and, by the way, get a good night's sleep before your test.

What are the symptoms of baby acne?

Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky

It's like acne...: It's exactly like regular acne, except blackheads are uncommon, and of course it is in a baby, under 6 months usually. There is actually another baby rash called "erythema toxicum" that looks a lot like acne, but since neither one needs any treatment and both go away on their own, the difference is not at all important.

Inderal (propranolol): 20 mg. Is a low dose. Not sure how many times a day it is prescribed, but as long as you had no problems with your blood pressure, skipping one dose should be ok. Inform your doctor if any symptoms occur.
