My 3 year old son have a high fever for three days and just started vomiting today.. His sister has a fever also. What could this be? What should I do

Probably viral but..: It is impossible to know for certain from these symptoms, but the most likely cause is a viral infection, possibly roseola, which is common in 3 yo's & has high fever with few other symptoms (though vomiting can be one of them). Classically the fever goes away after 3-5 days & then a rash appears, so it may be hard to know if he has this for a couple more days. Please see "comment" below for more. ...Read more

I got three dissolvable stitches in my upper lip two days ago. My 3 year old son just head butted me and one the stitches is loose. What do I do?

Head butt: Ok, take a look at the wound. Are the edges of skin touching each other? Is there a space large enough to slip a dime into? One loose stitch is no problem as long as the wound looks ok and you're not seeing a gap in the skin. If there is any question, we are happy to look at it in a Prime visit with photos!

What is an ideal weight for a 32 year old, 5'7". I've always hovered at about 150lb but my doctor has put me on a high fiber diet. I've also have a lot of anxiety and little appetite. Three weeks and I'm at 144 but I use to eat poorly. Concern?

What is an ideal weight for a 32 year old, 5'7".  I've always hovered at about 150lb but my doctor has put me on a high fiber diet.  I've also have a lot of anxiety and little appetite.  Three weeks and I'm at 144 but I use to eat poorly.  Concern?

This weight is thin: but wouldn't be classified as anorexic. Your ideal weight depends upon your gender, age, bone mass and genetics (speed of metabolism). Your anxiety is probably causing you to burn more calories than you want, so work on that with a therapist. Why are you on a high fiber diet? I would think a little good fat might help, unless you have other medical concerns. ...Read more
