Doing strenuous exercise if he has a blocked artery can be dangerous and can lead to a heart attack.

Some infants may get rubber bands around their toes and they could "fall off" if left unnoticed for days/weeks. In fact, 1 treatment for hemmorhoids is rubber band ligation, which cuts off the blood supply and evntually it falls off. ...Read more
