Iam pale but sometimes my hands, face and feet turn very yellow why does this happen?

Yellow hands: Hello, we are not told how old you are but if you are menstruating and pale, please visit the GP or OBGYN to have your Hb (hemaglobin) tested in a full blood count. The yellowness in the hands is most likely due to caratonemia, ie too many carrots and squash in diet and simply reducing these may improve the color. It is unlikely to be due to raised bilirubin but its an easy test to do thanks ...Read more

Can jaundice start in the hands? I have yellow hands and bottoms of the feet but my eyes and other parts look normal.

Carotonemia: It may be from something as simple as eating too many carrots or foods containing high levels of beta carotene.

Can A toddler get hand foot and mouth more then once?? I'm sure It's back again 2nd time this year

Yes: There are 2-3 strains of viruses that have been associated with this pattern of rash. Each separate strain would give long lasting immunity, so the same strain would not be repeated. There is also some variation in the pattern that overlaps with other causes. I've seen chickenpox masquerade is HFM. ...Read more

My infant and toddler both have hand foot & mouth. Are they still contagious once the spots appear? Also my infant is 9mths old. Dangerous or ok?

Hand Foot and Mouth: Hand, foot, and mouth disease is usually not serious. The illness is typically mild, and nearly all patients recover in 7 to 10 days without medical treatment. Complications are uncommon except for dehydration. Hand foot and mouth is contagious roughly for a few days before the symptoms appear untill they start to feel better and the spots and ulcers have healed over, so usually about 7 to 10 days. ...Read more

Do I need to be concerned if my toddler has hand, foot & mouth disease & I am 21 weeks pregnant?

Do I need to be concerned if my toddler has hand, foot & mouth disease & I am 21 weeks pregnant?

Not specifically: Most women will have had the viral infection that produces HFM in childhood and be immune for their lifetime. I do see the germ pass to adults occasionally. At 21 weeks you baby has formed all its basic structure, so the most vulnerable period has passed. I know of no reported HFM effects to the fetus if a mother becomes infected. You should know in a week or so if you get it. If so let your OB know. ...Read more

What can I do for my 21 month old toddler with a fever ranging from 99 - 101 with cold hands and feet. Also stuffy nose and sneezing. Gave her tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Fluids/monitor: Your 21mo is due for 5-7 uri's/yr to age 5 & most can be monitored at home. Playful times/fluid intake enough to wet diapers every 6hr/breathing not too noticable all suggest home care ok. Lack of play/noticable incresaed work to breathe/poor fluid intake all suggest a dr visit in order. Nasal saline helps keep the nose clear & tylenol (acetaminophen) as a comfort med may help. ...Read more

Big toe right foot, under toe nail there's a yellow line. I haven't been to a doctor in like 20 yrs. I smoke cig. I know my health is bad, but this is new.

Big toe right foot, under toe nail there's a yellow line. I haven't been to a doctor in like 20 yrs. I smoke cig. I know my health is bad, but this is new.

I'm: I'm not all that clear on what you mean by a "yellow line." vertical? Horizontal? Perfectly straight? Slowly growing or suddenly appearing? Beyond a better description, adding a link to a photograph would also help.

So, given the limit of what information you provided, it's hard to make any kind of reasonable determination as to the cause. I will say that one of the most common causes of discolored toenails is a fungal infection, and while fungal infections of the nails can start with any sort of pattern, it's not typically a "line."

i would be remiss in any answer to advise you of the obvious, though. Being a smoker especially, it's probably a good idea to see a doctor every 20 years or so, whether you need to or not, especially if you "know [your] health is bad." as much as it's annoying to see us doctors (believe me, I know!), there is an alternative to bad health..... Good health!

if you can post a picture of your toenail, i'll try my best to give you a more meaningful answer. ...Read more

@ what age does DHA need 2 be introduced into child's diet? He is 4 months old. Also his feet & hands a little purple, is this bcause he is cold?

Unknown: Dha is an omega-3 fatty acid important for developing babies and children, so it is good to have some dha intake, either from breastmilk, formula, and/or foods. The problem is that it is not known how to tell if a baby has too little or too much dha, how much is needed, how much to give, nor how digestible or absorbable various dha brands are. Talking with a pediatrician can help with the details. ...Read more
