Cold Knife Masterbation
Some handy facts...: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It isn't harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not stunt height, cause hair loss or gray hair, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage eyes. ...Read more
Cold sore for about 4 days & it's almost gone but I touched the cold sore & then touched my genitals without washing hands can I get genital herpes?
Technically: but wow, would that be UNLIKELY. First, the virus amounts drop fast after the sore opens and by almost gone there is almost no virus. Second, you have some immunity to that virus which is why it lasted 4 to 5 and not many of them, spreading, lasting 2-3 times longer. So, there is strong resistance to getting it elsewhere. Happens, but with fresh virus and DIRECTLY rubbing the virus into new spot. ...Read more

Stabbed myself last night (deep) with a clean fork in the wrist (accident.) slight blood, light swelling. Hand cold and weak today. Advice?
Go to ER: If you are attributing the cold and weak hand to the accidental fork-stick in the wrist, then that would be from swelling impacting blood flow and the nerves to hand. This is a time-limited problem, which can result in permanent loss of function if present. Get it evaluated to be sure. ...Read more

Impossible to say whether it is related to the duplication. You could contact the authors of this publication--I'm sure that they would be fascinated to see her. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/crig/2014/295359/ ...Read more
6yr old son gets hot swollen hands, fingers, ears, lips in cold weather or extremely cold food, depending on exposure. What causes "hot swollen skin"?
See below: Increased blood flow to theses "extremity areas" is likely the cause. As long as there is no pain, this is natural (to an extent) so to keep these areas from loosing blood flow (cold can do this) and thus decreasing oxygen to the tissues, where, if without, tissues metabolism slows and if it stops, tissues can die. His response may be slightly exaggerated but, without pain, i would not worry. ...Read more
