See Dermatologist: If it was prescribed by a doctor > you should see the prescribing doctor if you are using it on your own - there is a chance that you are not using the correct strength or the correct amount i recommend to see a dermatologist.

Tretinoin 0.025%: Consider seeing your doctor (if you bought it from them) about going to a higher concentration. 0.1% is what my patients usually use.

A 29-year-old member asked:

Is it safe to use anti-aging products with retin a (tretinoin)?

Possibly: Retin a (tretinoin) and other similar vitamin a derivatives have been used as anti-aging preparations primarily for wrinkle removing purposes. Most of them are well tolerated, but you want to make sure there are no contraindications for their use in your case. I cannot think of any off the top of my head, yet it's prudent to consult a dermatologist or at least a primary care provider prior to their use.

Musculoskeletal: The next possibility is a musculoskeletal problem. This could include a muscle strain, a short leg or a congenital problem with the feet (e.g., pes planus). Problems with the peripheral nervous system should also be considered, particularly if your child is experiencing foot drop. Next steps might include a consult with an orthopedist, a pediatric osteopathic physician and/or a neurologist.

See your doctor: In order to treat the diarrhea, it's important to know what is causing it in the first place. Consult with your child's physician. In the meantime, make sure the child is being rehydrated with pedialyte or something similar.

A 35-year-old male asked:

Headache for 4 days, bodyache for 3, fever for 2. Urgent care could find nothing wrong. What next?

Depends: It depends on how you feel otherwise, are you able to drink and eat? How high is your fever? If you cannot get your fever down with tylenol, (acetaminophen) and Motrin if you can take it, or you cannot drink, you can get dehydrated. Many viruses cause symptoms like you are describing but so can some serious illnesses. Your next step would be an emergency room at a hospital, to see a doctor, since it is a holiday.

A 32-year-old female asked:

My WBC is at 17, 500. Everything is normal including differential count. Spleen and liver are ok. For 2 days I have been feeling tired. What could it b?

Too many to count: There isn't a simple answer to this question, because an elevated WBC is nonspecific, it can happen from just about any cause of inflammation or infection, or from other conditions of the blood-forming cells in the bone marrow.
