Use repellant: Your best bet is to use a good repellant like deet. Do not put pesticides on your skin or clothing. Some pesticides are deadly not only to insects but people also.

Highly recommended. As a ringside physician myself, just working out with the boxers is totally fun even if you never actually throw a punch at anyone else.

Depends on pbm: Your ? Does not list the origin of the problem. Loss of fcn can be attributed to structure/blockage/infection/ metabolism. Any or all may have differing outcomes. A top question in my mind is the potential for hypertension from changes in the weak kidney & or progressive loss of function.Close followup with your physician and a frank discussion of the future surveylance needs are in order.

Is bathing safe for six to nine month old babies?

Yes: Baby may enjoy bath time now, splashing, cooing, and playing. Never leave your baby alone in the tub for even a minute. Genital care is often overlooked. Girls need the folds opened to clean away any buildup of creams or debris. Circumcised boys need the foreskin drawn back to expose similar buildups of body secretions or debris that can be gently washed away.
