Doctor insights on:
Dehydration: People who have trach are always at increased risk of infection and chronic inflammation. If there are other signs of infections (fever, lethargy, altered level of consciousness) seek immediate medical attention. But while you are waiting try increasing the fluid intake of your child. At age 2 they may not be able to adequately express thirst. ...Read more

Sick wight discharge.it smells like rotten cheese,sometimes it gets pink or brown. vagina itches badly and is covered by white stuff like toilet paper?
See doctor: It sounds like you definitely have an infection. Could be simple like a yeast infection, or could be a more serious STD. But definitely if you have white placques or papules, then probably yeast, but would want to make sure isn't herpes or syphilis. Normal for discharge to get pink or brown, that's usually discharge mixed with some new or old blood from menstrual cycle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

1 yo w/ wound on chin that was glued shut 4 days ago. Er cleaned, glued/steri strip it shut. Glue gone, it reopened, not bleeding. He need stitches?
No: White strips will not damage your "fake" teeth. Are you talking about crowns, bridge, implants or partial? But they will not lighten these teeth. The only teeth that will lighten are your natural teeth. So be careful about what you are trying to do and consider a consult with your dentist before you do anything. ...Read more

Closed comedones under skin that when squeezed white stuff comes out but keeps filling up unless they turn into a spot/pustule then after that they go?
Comedones: These are plugged oil glands that keep doing their thing-making lanolin. That is, until infection destroys them. Abrasive washing with a cloth or sponge will reduce the clogging. Squeezing tends to irritate and produce more oil. Try hands off. If this does not work. ask your pharmacist for a mild keratolytic ...Read more

Saline nasal spray: may help soften and thin the mucous, and help to get it cleared out. It can be used several times a day.

Mucinex (guaifenesin) (sold over the counter) can also be helpful in thinning and clearing nasal discharge. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My ears excrete an over abundance of material, It's not ear wax it is more white crumbled material that itches. What can I do?
Depends: The need to close a laceration depends on the size, depth, and location of the cut. The purpose of sutures (stitches), staples, or glue is to pull the edges of the cut together to allow it to heal with less risk of scarring and infection. A type of medical 'super glue' can be used on cuts in areas such as the scalp and in areas that don't get a lot of pulling. ...Read more
After an Urine Routine examination my answer sheet was saying:
PRO +1 but GLU,ERY & LEU were negative. What does this mean? Should i be worried?
Proteinuria : This finding would be called proteinuria, or protein in the urine. At times, this can simply be a benign finding. Your first step would be to repeat the urinalysis to see if there is still a protein in the urine. If there is, then blood testing, a 24 hour urine collection and ultrasound of the kidneys and bladder would be your next step. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

From some days a slight pain in my grand foot nail corner. When i saw, corner was wet, a small water color glu like liquid.Any suggestion?
Nail care: Ingrown toenails can be remedied through soaking your foot in warm water, removal of embedded debris from the nail borders, and applying an antibiotic ointment to temporarily soften the corners. One should always try to cut the nails strait across to avoid leaving an embedded nail spicule. If pain or redness continues get it looked at by a professional. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

So those were my results from the UA I had a few days ago at an urgent care. The nurse practitioner said I “probably” have an UTI.But I have no pain that relates ?
Short cuts: The gold standard test for a UTI is a urine culture obtained on a clean catch or cath urine. If you did a squat/pee into a collection tray this can be contaminated by vaginal wash out debris & easily explains the UA results. I suspect the NP wanted to give you a label/meds and send you away even though there was no firm finding. ...Read more

Not really: Hi. There is nothing among those labs that would suggest PCOS to me. Do you have hirsutism, irregular periods, and are overweight? In that setting, PCOS can be considered after things like Cushing's and congenital adrenal hyperplasia are excluded. PCOS has high testosterone, and usually LH:FSH > 2.5 and usually multiple ovarian cysts on ultrasound. None of that is suggested by what you provide. ...Read more
Had a murmur ,My echo says I have trace to mild mitral regurgitation in one valve. normal weight, lipids, bp, glu. Reason to f/u with cardiology?
Not really: Trace to mild regurgitation on echocardiogram is likely not the cause of your auscultated "murmur" as that would be very hard to hear. I suspect your doctor thought there was a murmur, and it turns out not to be clinically significant. If you are truly asymptomatic: no SOB, no chest pain, etc., then no need for cardio based on this finding alone. As for preventative care, ensure lipids really norm ...Read more

Mild or borderline: underactive thyroid. Your doctor can prescribe you synthryoid pill to raise your free t4 up to 10 from 1.03. Your fatigue and tiredness may go away hopefully after that. Other values are not that bad tsh may be little elevated according to some labs. Ft3 is little high. Insulin and blood sugar ok. So, get the prescription for synthyroid pill from your doctor and start taking. ...Read more
