Shaving injury: What you are describing sounds like a shaving injury. A herpes lesion usually does not bleed. If you felt yourself cutting the skin with the razor then this is the most likely explanation. If you are concerned see and Obgyn for an examination

A 44-year-old member asked:

I am 21 weeks pregnant and have tender breasts. Today I noticed a small lump in my right breast-should I be worried?

See your doctor: There are many changes in the breasts during pregnancy. Breast tenderness is very common. However, if you have a new breast mass, i would see your doctor within a week. Be careful not to check the lump too often before you see your doctor as breast/nipple stimulation in pregnancy can cause contractions.

A 26-year-old member asked:

I am now 28 weeks pregnant and I had some bleeding, and the placenta is stuck over the scar. What does this mean?

Placenta accreta: It sounds like placenta accreta. Women who have had a c/s or other previous uterine surgery are at increased risk for the placenta growing into the uterine muscle layer if it implants over the scar. Most women don't get bleeding from this during pregnancy. The main risks of an accreta are heavy bleeding at the time of delivery of the placenta or inability to deliver it, requiring a hysterectomy.
A member asked:

Can I bathe my baby when he has tender skin spots on his hands and feet, etc?

Yes: It is ok to bathe your baby, even with tender spots or a rash. However if your baby seems really uncomfortable you may want to make an appointment with your pediatrician. Remember babies do not need a bath every day- this could dry out their skin and make it prone to peeling or increased tenderness. Instead, bathe every 2-4 days.

A 45-year-old female asked:

I am 45 with 3 failed ivfs, 5 yrs ago. Benign ovar. Cyst removed then. Last period jul 10. Hcg 464 (20 dpo) & 843 (22.5 dpo) mild cramp, no bleed, ache 1 side. Ectopic, cancer, menopause?

Seems ok: Is DPO days post ovulation? If so, your HCG roughly doubled in 48 hours...That is a good textbook rise! a mild cramp is common, and no bleeding is always good. Seems to me you are pregnant! no indication of ectopic, no reason to think cancer (hcg producing cancers are typically seen in much younger women ie teens and 20's) and menopause doesn't give you rising hcg. So for now, congrats and luck!

The flu?: The symptoms indicate your body is fighting off some nasty infection. Serious and treatable infections need to be excluded. If none found, most likely it is viral flu.
