Question: if two people with more or less body build are standing on a corner, one feels hot and the other feels mild. What is causes feeling of heat?

Question: if two people with more or less body build are standing on a corner, one feels hot and the other feels mild. What is causes feeling of heat?

Different people: You have just shown a lovely example of how people differ -- and that these differences go deeper than physical makeup alone. We have different temperaments and preferences, different experiences of the same events. One feels "hot" and the other feels "mild". No right or wrong here -- just variability! Or maybe the "hot" one is wearing secret silk underwear? That could make a difference. :-). ...Read more

Had retreatment of two root canals...Having heat sensitivity with one of the molars treated-shouldn't tooth be "dead" now, not sensitive?

Had retreatment of two root canals...Having heat sensitivity with one of the molars treated-shouldn't tooth be "dead" now, not sensitive?

Endo retreat pain: Root canal retreatments are about 60-80% successful. A flare-up--sensitivity to thermal changes or pain when biting--are very possible. If you were prescribed antibiotics and/or pain medication take them as directed. If pain persists return to your treating dentist for follow-up. ...Read more

I was in the heat all day. I have a small sunburn. But now my right arm hurts, and fingertips tingle like I hurt it when I did not. Type 1 diabetic?

I was in the heat all day. I have a small sunburn. But now my right arm hurts, and fingertips tingle like I hurt it when I did not. Type 1 diabetic?

Tingling from edema: Bing in the heat all day with sunburn suggests some dehydration possible, and drinking water is key. The tissues of the arm are prone to swelling and that can cause the "right arm" pain and tingling fingers. One would suggest elevation of the arm to decrease swelling, squeezing a nerf ball, 20 min ice and 20 min off. With decrease swelling, the pain should subside. Type I diabetic risks infection ...Read more

My little one is 5 months and is having heat rush, have been using Johnson products also tried epimax but it’s not working. Any advice?

Heat rash - keep dry: If it is truly a heat rash, there is no specific treatment, other than sponging, bathing with cool (not cold) water and ensuring that he/she wears natural, absorbing fiber, like cotton next to the skin, as a heat rash is usually caused by sweating a lot. Also keeping cool and well ventilated. If the rash gets worse, it is better to see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

What causes one hand to become paler than the other while typing?

What causes one hand to become paler than the other while typing?

Carpal tunnel: Likely carpal tunnel syndrome. The nerve (usually median) gets compressed causing pin/needles sensation. The artery also runs through the same canal so it may get compressed cutting off a little blood supply resulting in slight pallor compared to the other hand. Take frequent breaks and stretch your hands and wrists. ...Read more

Back pain: Back pain is hard to diagnose in the office, and is often one of the most common conditions encountered in the primary care setting. You need a good history and examination, that may include the need for testing such as x-rays, etc. To determine your most likely cause and the best treatment.

Why do I get extreme heat at the back of my neck? Before that I started having insomnia too, are those two things related? .

Anxiety or else: Severe anxiety can cause symptoms such as sleeping difficulties, breathing difficulties, blushing in face and neck, feeling hot (not related to room temperature), sweating, nausea, among other symptoms. A physician should rule out other causes such as high blood pressure, or hormonal imbalances. If not other medical reasons are found these symptoms could be related to stress/anxiety. ...Read more

I was just prescribed an epi pen for sudden allergic reactions. Is it safe to keep one in my car since they're sensitive to heat and cold?

No: My advice to patients regarding storing the epi pen is treat it like potato salad -- you wouldn't leave potato salad in your hot car all day and then eat it would you? Same with the epi pen. Additionally, the recommendation is that Epipen (epinephrine) always be on your person or immediately available for use. Severe allergic reactions can occur anytime and seconds matter. ...Read more

Am 29 had 3 miscarriages between each one around a year no heat beat and baby stop at 6 weeks test shows subclinical hypothyrosim is this a reason?

Cant say for sure: Sub clinical means that you do not have overt symptoms. The body is an amazing and complex machine that responds to subtle changes in hormone levels. If you do not need medical treatment yet I would also consult with an acupuncturist /chinese medicine practitioner. I have had amazing results in patients with both thyroid and fertility issues with these modalities. ...Read more

Is it better to use ice or heat after straining one's lower back?

Is it better to use ice or heat after straining one's lower back?

Do what helps: Traditional wisdom is ice for first 24 hours to limit inflammation then heat after to reduce spasm and stiffness. While this approach works well for some injuries (like a sprained ankle) I don't find patients usually get much relief from the ice portion (likely less inflammation and more muscle spasm). Heat helps most people but in the end, do whatever works for you. ...Read more

I've had muscle spasms in the lower back& told two diff. Things. 2 docs said to apply ice & 1 said heat. I'm confused, which is best to reduce?

I've had muscle spasms in the lower back& told two diff. Things. 2 docs said to apply ice & 1 said heat. I'm confused, which is best to reduce?

Muscle spasm: Actually both are right in terms of using these modalities to treat pain or spasm. Generally ice is reserved for the first 24-48hrs after your symptoms develop and heat is used thereafter. There is no concrete scientific evidence that one is much better than another or that it makes a difference to use them or not. If there's inflammation use cold before heat, thereafter do what feels good. ...Read more

2 month old had a heat rash to neck 1 month ago. Enlarged lymph node appeared. Now new one appeared to other side-occipital? When worry lymphoma?

Infant lymph nodes: Hello. The enlarged node is most likely unrelated to the heat rash your infant had 1 month ago. Occipital nodes are more noticeable in infants because their skin is thinner. The nodes should be "rubbery" in feel and move easily. Most common reasons for enlargement would be a scalp rash like "cradle cap." You can get the nodes checked by the pediatrician, but they are probably normal. ...Read more

Have it drained: The last sentence says it all. Unless you want a swollen, red face on your wedding pics you should have the boil drained. Sepsis in the mid-facial region can lead to some severe problems due to its proximity to the brain and meniges. Don't wait, rather get it sorted out. It will no doubt be a little painful, but you only get married once....hopefully ...Read more

Both do the job but: Clay one may get too hot & cause burn. Clay's advantage, however, is that it retains heat longer than bag of rice does. Just have to be careful not to leave either one on too long (especially the clay one). Wrapping towel around it should help. ...Read more

Is heat rash chronic? After I got one I kept getting them under certain situations heat hot fabric etc

Usually not: This sounds like it might be some type of allergic reaction issue and less a chronic heat rash issue. Might consider daily nonsedating any histamine for 1 to 2 weeks and see if symptoms improve or resolve. If so, can continue this medication. If not, recommend you see your doctor for evaluation. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck with this. ...Read more
