Privacy variety cost: Some people are embarrassed about their need or desire to use a sex toy. Buying it online avoids the need for a face to face purchase through a conventional store. Buying anything online tends to offer you a wider variety of choices and frequently a better price, but perhaps less convenient service. If your toy is defective, you will probably have to mail it back to the vendor which takes time. ...Read more

Am hypersensitive to cats dogss perfume candles lotion s soaps etc dr did bloodwork negative for dogs dust cats trees grasses im 6 months post partum?
What's the question?: I'm sorry to hear that you're allergic to so many things. Are you asking if this has anything to do with being post-partum? Maybe. Being pregnant affects the immune system. It's possible that there have been some changes in the immune system that make you more reactive to these substances now. ...Read more

I'm 22 weeks pregnant, is it ok/safe for me to paint my kitchen with latex interior paint? & should I have windows open?
Yes, with caution: Of course there's a lot of women for whom 'nesting' in pregnancy means some interior decorating! no studies have been conducted to determine 100% safe.

Wife feeds stray cat in our woodsy CT yard. cat's friendly non-aggressive. no tags or collar. Cat licked my leg, should I b worried for rabies?
Not to worry.: Since the rabies virus affects the nervous system, rabid animals generally display abnormal behavior. The virus can be transmitted via contact with the affected animal's saliva, usually through a bite. Theoretically, saliva from a rabid animal could infect a human if the saliva entered an open wound. In this instance, the animal was unlikely to be rabid and no mention was made of an open wound. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Furnished 2yo's bedroom in feb,new furniture smell has remained.i am really worried about him breathing it in.is he at risk for anything?
NO: new furniture smell should in no way harm a child, unless it was recently stained with a toxic varnish and there is not adequate ventilation etc. That being said. If the furniture was new and bought at a normal furniture store, and did not smell like recently stained pieces, etc, your child should be perfectly normal. You may consider opening a window to allow the room to be adequately ventilated ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
