You need to be seen: Usually cold does not last for 14 days may be a week. So get yourself checked by the physician

You need a doctor: not a doctor's note ! kindly go to any ER, free clinic or urgent care facility to help you first to get over your sickness, and then ask for a doctor's note, good luck

A member asked:

Is it normal that my baby only feeds twice a day?

Dr. Scott J. Wolfson

Yes: When babies start solid foods they usually will tolerate about 2 feeds a day. The breastmilk or formula is and should be the bulk of their nutrition. I generally recommend changing to a three meal a day routine when they are closer to 9 months.

Is it normal to not feel my baby move for a day?

Dr. Megan Bird

Depends: It depends on how far along you are. Most women feel movment first at 18-20 weeks. From there until about 30 weeks fetal movements may not be regular and you may not feel them every day. After 30 weeks, you should feel your baby move every day. If you are ever worried it is easier and safer to get checked then to stay at home wondering.
A 45-year-old member asked:

Should I be worried if I feel my baby move less than 10 times a day?

No: Not necessarily. A lot of times, you are so busy throughout the day that you did not recognize all the baby movement. If this is the case, drink a glass of ice cold water (may stimulate baby a bit more), and lie down in a dark, quiet room. You can now focus on baby movements and should count multiple movements in a 30 minute period. Try to replicate this as best as possible throughout the day.

No: According to the center of disease control and prevention (cdc), malaria is not common in all countries in africa. Malaria is present in the majority of countries that make up the portion considered sub-saharan, but there are a couple countries like south Africa where it is typically not found. The CDC has a nice world MAP showing the distribution of malaria: http://cdc-malaria.Ncsa.Uiuc.Edu/.
Dr. Robert Isaacs

Agree overall, but malaria is found in the northern-most province of South Africa, called the Limpopo, and in the eastern part of the country in the region bordering Mozambique which is known as the lowveld and which is centred around the city of Barberton. This is particularly important for visitors to South Africa who intend to visit the game reserves there, such as the Kruger National Park.

Why is my brain so foggy these days?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Albert Pizzo
Family Medicine 60 years experience
Brain fog: Brain fog is a real symptom that can have many causes. Sometimes it is due to illness or hormone fluctuations commonly seen in women in the years before and during menopause. Mood disorders such as depression can cause this symptom. Keep a journal concerning your activities , what you eat and the brain fog days and see if there is a pattern.
