A 35-year-old male asked:

i had sex with my wife on friday and today when she went to see the gynaecologist, she was told she has a viaginal infection, and now my penis has this burning sensation on the skin.

Yeast?: The most common kind of vaginal infection that would do this is a yeast infection (thrush). If she was prescribed an anti-yeast cream with active ingredient ending in "azole" (clotrimazole, miconazole, and several others), try sharing it, rubbing a small amount into your penile skin 2-3 times a day. If that doesn't help, clarify your wife's diagnosis and/or see a doctor yourself. Good luck!

A 46-year-old female asked:

My son had his wisdom teeth taken out yesterday. He is now running a 101.1 fever. Can I give his motrin while he is on oxycodone?

You can but caution: Oxycodone, often given in combo with Acetaminophen (tylenol (acetaminophen)) and generally known as Percocet for pain control in situation such as dental extraction here. The tylenol (acetaminophen) should help with fever, but may not be enough (often 325mg). So, you can add another plain tylenol (acetaminophen) 325mg or motrin, but must monitor closely as infection is a concern and follow-up with the dentist is recommended. Good luck.

Mucocele possibly: The bump on the side of your mouth might be a mucocele. It is a clear bump filled with salvia. Caused when the duct to a minor salivary gland gets clogged and the saliva backs up. Most common on the lower lip but can occur elsewhere in the mouth. Ussually resolve on their own. Some times large ones require surgical removal. Bumps on the back of your tongue are probably normal vallate taste buds.

Infection: You have a respiratory/throat infection. Could be viral and could be bacterial best to see a doctor. Other options to help with symptoms include taing elderberry, gargling with salt water or half and half peroxide and mouthwash (do not drink- just gargle) and a warm cloth around neck to hep with lymph glands. Important to rule out strep throat as that will improve with antibiotics.

Yes, upper: The kidney is the upper end of the urinary tract, so an infection here or pyelonephritis is a form of uti, urinary tract infection. Kidney stones can also present this way. A pyelonephritis may require intravenous antibiotics to cure.
