Haven't seen it: Haven't seen any teen stunted from drinking soy milk or eating soy products, in 28 years of primary care Pediatric practice in California where many people drink soy milk. So, no worries, as long as soy is a part of a balanced diet, just like all the other foods we eat. Each food should be part of a balanced diet.

I never had acne as a teenager. Why am I now getting acne as an adult?

Dr. Jerome Litt

Man or Woman? Age?: I believe that acne can be caused by or aggravated by certain foods and medications. I would have to know your gender; your age, and do you eat nuts and peanut butter? High glycemic index foods? Chocolate? If you are a girl/woman, do you break out before your periods, for example?

Only within reason: Patients with jra should avoid high impact activities such as running and are better to pursue non-impact sports such as swimming, bike riding, cross country skiing, etc. There have been however remarkable advances in treatment by dmards (disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs)that modify the body's response to infection and disease and may thereby allow unrestricted sport.

A 27-year-old female asked:

How likely is it for a man to contract chlamydia by receiving oral sex from a woman?

3 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Wayne Ingram
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Mouth to penis CPR?: It is unlikely to transmit chlamydia unless the woman's mouth is already infected. In that case, it could produce a reaction(cpr). The mouth is rife with bacteria as opposed to the "cleaner" vagina, so before one "biblically knows" a partner, it is a great idea to know your partner well and remain monogamous.
