Travel is a risk: Any travel is a risk, that is how this has spread so yes I would advise you telephonically consult with a doctor and see what they advise is best right now. But locking down requires all of us to stay put to stop transmission. I mean international travel is a risk to get covid and from international folk, especially recently. Travel right now to expose yourself and others is also a risk.

COVID 19: No. As of today (27 May 2020) Australia has the 61st highest number of cases in the world. There are only 7,139 reported cases and a total of 103 reported deaths. So, it is not considered high risk at this time.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Is it normal that my child arches her back and thrusts backward when something's upset her?

Yes: This is a form of temper tantrum and is best ignored after making sure your child is not in a position to hurt herself. Do not try to appease her by giving her what she wants or trying to not upset her. She is smart and will learn to manipulate you if allowed.

How can I help my baby after he's had bronchiolitis?

Dr. Evelyn Hurvitz
Pediatrics 37 years experience
Bronchiolitis: Bronchiolitis is caused by a virus, most often rsv, or respiratory syncitial virus. The viral infection results in inflammation, or swelling, of the lower small airways. The swelling of the tiny airways results in rapid breathing, cough and wheezing. Symptomatic treatment includes clearing the nostrils of mucus, maintaining hydration, and making sure the child has enough oxygen.

Went to dentist and had local anaesthetic applied. How long before I can eat and feel right?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. David Padula
Dentistry 34 years experience
Depends on amount: As far as when you can eat it depends on the type of restoration placed. As far as feeling right, it depends on how much was given, location of of injection and your metabolism rate. Usually i tell my patients the felling should last 2-3 hours. If you are more active, this can shorten this time, the type of anesthetic also matters.
