Do Ice Cream Brain Freezes Cause Damage
Last night my son was eating an ice cream bar and got a "brain freeze" and seemed to pass out for a couple seconds. What would cause this?
Two thoughts: "brain freeze" is often associated with people who are susceptible to migraine, and if he did "pass out", he may have basilar migraine variant, but also, might wonder about an epileptic event. Worthwhile to see your doctor, just to be safe. But most likely, merely an episode of syncope due to a vaso-vagal reaction. ...Read more

Is eating ice cream in winter when the weather is cold bad? Can it cause to have common cold or tobecome sick?
LOL: I do that all the time. There is no proven problem, only individualized. During cold times people don't want anything more cold so it is a preference. I like it.

My 4 year old son was eating ice cream & stopped cause it was hurting his lower back, what could this be caused by?
Cold esophagus: Sometimes younger children have a hard time characterizing pain specifically. He may have had the equivalent of his brain freeze in his esophagus or stomach, a sudden pain from the coldness and was not able to best express where he was feeling the pain.

Ice cream really upsets my bowels, but other types of lactose products seem ok. Is this common? What could be the cause? Should I say away from lactose
Lactose intolerance: Yoghurt and cheese are dairy products in which the lactose has been fermented by microorganisms, making them relatively lactose free.

No: Acne is only mildly related to diet. While dairy exacerbates it in some people, my answer is still no unless in your case the link is clear. And it is moot. All acne can be managed until it remits on its own. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your physician. ...Read more

Not likely: Early childhood caries is usually caused by too much sugary foods and drink. Putting infants to bed with a bottle of juice or milk will cause decay also.

Ate 900ml of dark chocolate ice cream during the evening. Next day, stool was very, very dark. Almost black. Would this cause this or melena? Nervous.
I wouldn't worry too much about it. Melena is a recurring issue and due to small amounts of bleeding in the GI tract, not just a one time deal. It is caused by the oxidation of the iron (which is present in our blood cells) by our digestive enzymes. Sometimes there is food coloring in ice cream, which can definitely color your stool. Just keep an eye on it for now. ...Read more
